Campground Activities enhance the family connection and enjoyment of relationships. Who knew sitting around a picnic table snacking or playing a game of Frisbee would be so beneficial for families!
When you are on vacation, and are taking a break from the hustle and bustle of your family trip, often times it is nice to kick back and enjoy your campsite and the array of many Campground Activities campgrounds have to offer.
One of our favorite Campground Activities is hiking around the campground. Whether we decide to actually go on a hike in the forest or just walking up and down the different roads taking a look at the different travel trailers everyone has. Either way, you are getting plenty of exercise and you're taking in God's scenery.
Hiking at a local campground
Of course, there are those of you who own dogs, and we all know they all LOVE to go on walks! Scott has owned several dogs in the past, and he enjoyed this ever so much.
Walking them, or them walking you-whichever the case, is as much enjoyable as watching them pass by your campsite. I believe that this is probably one of the most enjoyable campground activities for dog owners.
on a recent camp-out, our camping neighbors had a dog and they were on "strike three" with him, as they did NOT keep there dog on a leash. At this particular campground, he would have been asked to leave if this happened for a third time. Campgrounds have rules and they must be followed.
Biking is a fun activity for both kids and adults. The best thing about this Campground Activity is you can participate with your children and still have the bonding time they need with you. It also keeps you on your toes while they are still learning to ride at a young age! Some campgrounds will even rent bikes to you.
Two words everyone loves, well, most everyone! Most kids love to swim and it certainly is a great time to help them with there skills in the pool or lake. Some campgrounds have lakes that you can swim in, so this is a plus!
If you love to either boat and or fish, finding a campground that offers both is a plus. It's a pleasure to be able to walk over in the evening and be able to throw your line in the water or take a rental out on the lake for a leisure ride after dinner time.
This is great bonding time for everyone in your family!
Leisure Campground Activities include anything that you may bring from home or things that are already set up at the local campgrounds.
Volleyball and badminton are two games that we happen to see quite a bit at campsites. Some campgrounds offer Tennis and other well known sports that offer places to play.
Most campgrounds offer a playground for the little ones as well. If they don't have an "official" playground you can normally at least find a field to play in.
The evening campfire is probably the most well known Campground Activity for camping. People love to just sit around and talk about the day and enjoy the fire. Of course, you can't forget about having a hot dog or toasted marshmallows either!
If you are staying at a privately owned campground, sometimes the campground hosts will offer Campground Activities during your stay.
On another recent trip, the host offers movie nights to all their guest. Bring your own blanket, chair, and drinks, and they offer popcorn for 0.25 cents.
She was also looking to purchase an older RV to spice up and sell snow cones and ice cream too. How fun would that be!
Here is a list of a few outdoor activities...
Recently a couple had stopped us when we were tearing down Cabbie and had some questions in regards to camping in general.
She mentioned to me that they brought "easy meals" so they could relax more, but then had too much relaxation time on there hands; they didn't bring anything to do with them.
I started thinking and realized that for some who have NEVER camped before, they would have no idea on the types of Campground Activities for camping either for indoor or outdoor.
So here is a short listing for Indoor activities or for when the weather is under the sun.
The ultimate goal in camping, is to RELAX and enjoy, whatever the camping activity may be, even if it's cooking!
As you can see, you can have quite a bit of fun just hanging out at your campsite or campground during the day.
So much to see and do, sometimes you just don't have enough time during your stay to enjoy it all. I guess that gives you an option to make plans to come back again and enjoy it another time!
We have noticed that camping is the new activity for families to get out and enjoy together. More and more are seeing this and this is a true blessing!
It's nice to see the "next" generation experience what we did as a family when we were kids.
We have listed some of the most famous Campground Activities.
We'd love to hear from you!
Below is a short survey, be sure to fill it out and send it our way! We'll update any new and fun information on our website so others can enjoy and start new traditions with there families as well. Thank you and God Bless!
