There are many great activities that the whole family can enjoy when RV-ing. The first thing to pay attention to when planning a trip is what amenities a campground offers and what attractions are nearby. Finding the right RV park for you will depend on whether or not you have kids and what ages they are. Whatever your requirements, this article will describe a few fun activities that are offered at many RV campgrounds.
First of all, almost everyone likes to sit around a campfire. This is great for the family because you can tell stories, roast marshmallows, and make s’mores. It is also great to be out in nature, which is what camping is all about. This has always been my favorite thing to do when camping, ever since I was a little kid.
RV campgrounds can be relatively remote, and because of this there is less light pollution of the night sky, which means you will be able to view the stars much better. This makes star gazing another great activity. If you have a smartphone, you can download an app that will help you find all the stars and constellations in the night sky.
If the campground has a nearby source of water, then fishing is a good option, but first you should make sure it is allowed. Many campgrounds also allow you to rent canoes or kayaks. Swimming is always fun, just be sure to bring life jackets and plenty of sunscreen!
An RV park or resort will usually have a few kid centered attractions. Many have swimming pools and playgrounds. Volleyball courts and horseshoe pits are also common.
An older crowd, with or without children, would likely enjoy hiking and biking. Many campgrounds offer trails. Bird watching is also fun but may be a boring activity for children.
It is also important to have activities planned in case of rain. If you have kids, make sure you bring some of their toys. You can also get a WIFI kit for your RV to provide entertainment. Board games are always entertaining if you can get the entire family involved, and they’re pretty easy to store space-wise in your RV.
These are just a few suggestions to give you some ideas for picking the best RV campground for you. You can find plenty of information on campgrounds and their specific amenities on the web.
