People don’t like camping at a public campground because there is “nothing to do.” To quite the contrary, public campground sites often offer a plethora of activities for the whole family to enjoy! Here are just a few.
What is the most popular activity to do while camping? You guessed it, hiking. The majority of public campgrounds have hiking trails that are open to the campers. Hiking is so much fun and also offers great exercise.
Trails are usually graded for their difficulty. Trails with great hills, rough terrain, and unclear paths would typically be rated as more difficult than a nice flat trail with few obstacles. Regardless of your hiking preferences, there is a trail for everyone in the family.
Another great activity to participate in while camping with your family is swimming. Many campgrounds are conveniently located on a lake or a pond so that campers can enjoy the water. Swimming is also great exercise and is tons of fun.
A lot of campgrounds also offer different water activities like kayaks, paddle boats, water slides, or canoes for campers to rent. If the campsite is not on a lake, there usually is a pool available for the campers to swim in instead.
So you’ve swum and hiked your heart out so far on your camping trip. What else can you do? Public campgrounds typically have game courts available for the campers to use. Basketball courts, tennis courts, and volleyball courts are just some of the resources available for you and your family to play with while you’re camping.
Whether you want to rough it out and stay in tents or lives in luxury with campground cabin rentals, a camping trip is a great vacation for the whole family!
