These family camping games make the great outdoors even more fun.
Whether you’re roughing it in a tent or lounging in a camper (like me!), take advantage of the time to play fun family camping games. I asked friends for their top recommendations.
Play a Game of Cornhole
Every family I spoke to mentioned a camping trip wouldn’t be complete without a game of cornhole. In fact, many have annual competitions. It’s a fun and easy game to take along and leave set out at your campsite.
Get Competitive With Ladder Ball
This is one of my go-to games in the summer—not just at the campground, but at the beach and at home.
Stay Cool With an Old School Water Gun Fight
“We always take squirt guns when we camp,” says Paul Hakes of Texas. “Usually 15 to 20 small ones, so we can share, and of course, super soakers.”
Enjoy the Evening Hours With Flashlight Tag
Jamie Wynberry of Indianapolis says that her family camps frequently and once the sun goes down, the kids like to play flashlight tag.
Use Glow in the Dark Necklaces for Games at Night
Wynberry says that another of her favorite family camping games is to play glow-in-the-dark ring toss using glow necklaces.
Play a Game of Outdoor Yahtzee
One of your favorite indoor family games has been turned into a fun outdoor game. Team up and play a fun game of Yahtzee!
