It’s no secret that camping with kids is a bit more challenging than spending a weekend away with your partner. If you’re trying to plan a camping trip with the kids, check out these expert RV tips for making camping with the kids more fun.
Have the Kids Help with Planning
One of the best ways to help the kids get excited about the camping trip is to involve them in the planning. Look into the local state parks around the area and see if there are any programs or sites the kids want to see, and try to incorporate things they’d like to do into your itinerary.
Bring along plenty of board games and outdoor games to help make time at the campsite more enjoyable. It’s easy to keep kids entertained when you’re out exploring trails or the local towns, but if you want to take some time to relax at the campsite, you’ll want to have a few things for the kids to keep themselves occupied with while you rest.
Snacks and Snacks and Snacks
Running around at the campground, playing on the playgrounds, and hiking the trails will work up an appetite for anyone. Be sure to pack plenty of snacks for yourself and the kids to help keep them fueled and ready for fun!
Pack Outdoor Toys and Equipment
The number one thing you’ll want to bring for the kids at the campground is outdoor equipment and toys. As a kid, my favorite thing to do when we were camping was riding my bike. If your kids are old enough, bring bikes and helmets and let them explore until dinner time!
Plan for Rainy Days
No one likes a rainy day at the campground, but you can make it more enjoyable if you’ve planned ahead. Pack some of the kids’ favorite movies and make a day of spending time inside playing cards, making crafts, and watching your favorite movies.
