Both are anime series about four fun-loving girls doing outdoor things. One is a cozy camp setting, the other is an adventurous trek across Antarctica!
Both very adventurous anime with CGDCT elements but a lot of warmth and heart to both. Enjoyable for their characters, and environments.
Recommended mostly due to similar ideas, presentation, and emotionality. The highlight of both shows, in my opinion, is how dedicated the characters feel in achieving their desires. The music and imagry in both also blend so well with the narrative that you can't help but get drawn in. The major difference is in the story. Laid-Back Camp is a slice-of-life mixed with real locations and tips for how to make your own camping trip. A Place Further than the Universe is much more narrative and character driven. But in the end, both are simply feel-good, lighthearted shows!
Both anime revolve around a group of high school girls, learning about and appreciating the outdoors through adventures and strengthening their friendship along the way.
Both anime feature kawaii girls doing adventurous outdoorsy things. Both animation styles are clean, clear, and colorful. Although both are slice of life, A Place Further Than the Universe has a deeper storyline.
Both shows follow an entertaining group of girls doing something uniquely interesting. Of course one is a substantially bigger event than the other, but they both fill that "cute girls doing various things in cute ways" niche exceptionally well, and include some marvelous and breathtaking imagery to boot. A Place Further than the Universe is a more emotional journey, while Laid-Back Camp is the more relaxing series.

If you liked either of these shows, specifically the aspects of coming to terms with life and what it throws at you, both shows excel strongly at this story aspect in a way other shows tend to barely miss.
Both stories heavily revolve around a past that's been left undealt with for a very long time, and then follows the main characters as they attempt to live with the consequences of it going on for so long unattended to, and because of this all the characters in both shows are pretty deeply given character in different ways.
However I would say they both throw their cards on the table at the end and show their strongest suits in the final 3 episodes of each show, so it can be kind of hard to get through the drag of the first 10 depending what kind of person you are, but both journeys are entirely worth it, and show you aspects of yourself you might not have known about prior.
Nagisa is a girl who is a little impatient because she cannot find her future calling. She wanders into an abandoned mini FM radio station. On impulse, she tries to become a DJ, and her broadcast words by chance unexpectedly reaches people.
If you liked Kimi no Koe wo Todoketai or Sora Yori Mo Tooi Basho, you may try watching the other one.
Both series are about a bunch of girls' friendship and how this friendship helps one of the characters overcome a trauma.
The ending regarding this aspect however differs from one series to the other one.
Also both series have a very similar visual style (both where made by the same studio).

Both animes have overarching plots or "goals" and main characters working towards them. While widely different, they both possess some similarities in the storytelling and the emotions they invoke in you. Both are beautiful to watch and if you enjoy onem you'll certainly enjoy the other
