8 Perfect Camping Movies to Add to Your Watch List

By XGIMI Tech - 2022-02

Introduction

Camping is a very popular activity and people all over the world love camping out in the woods or the hills and spending some quality time with their friends and family. It is also a wonderful way for people to disconnect from their usual everyday lives to relax and unwind. 

There are many camping activities that you can do when out with your loved ones. You can hike on one of the many trails around your campsite or you can rent bikes and spend the day cycling in the woods. You can also enjoy a bonfire, barbeque, nature photography, bird watching, and, even, star gazing. These are activities that people of all ages can enjoy and some of these things can be fun for kids as well.

However, in recent times, one of the most popular camping activities is to watch a camping movie out in the open amidst nature. Imagine enjoying your favorite film under a starry sky with family and friends. It is a unique way to enjoy a camping experience.

While it might sound like a difficult task to set up your very own camping movie theater, it is not all that difficult to do. All you need is a portable projector for camping and a screen to project the movie on. However, here are some things that you should remember:

  • Choose a portable projector with an in-built battery that offers about 2 hours of power so that you can watch at least one whole camping movie. 
  • You will also need to carry a projector screen with you; there are many good, large screens available on the market these days that are lightweight and easy to carry and store as well. 
  • In case, you don’t want to invest in a screen, you can also become a little creative and use other surfaces to project your camping movie. For example, you can project the movie on the body of a white van or the insides of a tent.
  • Also, when you buy a portable projector, you should keep a few things in mind such as brightness. It is difficult to view a dull, low-resolution image in the dark, especially, when outside. Hence, buy a portable projector with a high-resolution, image clarity and brightness to enjoy a pleasurable viewing experience.

Top 8 Movies To Watch While Camping 

Here are the top 8 movie recommendations to watch while camping using a portable projector for camping, such as:
