Parking on soft ground

If you are going to park on soft ground for over a week, what could you use to prevent your tires from sinking into the ground? I have tried leveling blocks but they are so small, 10 inches square at best, so they sink in as well. There must be something bigger and better.

If it is only going to be for one week and not on a regular basis I would get a 3/4" sheet of outdoor plywood and cut it into 4 sections so I could place one section under each of the tires.

If it is going to be on a regular basis I would try to find some AM2 Runway matting similar to this.

We have the same problem. With the spring snow melting, our gravel parking spot is turning to mud. So that's exactly what we did - backed up onto pieces of 3/4" plywood to keep the wheels from sinking into the mud.

Make sure you have a spotter and go slow, we had one of the plywood pieces flip up a bit as the tire went on, but it was fine once the wheel was in the center.
