5 Father's Day Camping Activities

5 Father's Day Camping Activities


Visiting a national park in an RV rental is one of the best ways to explore nature and spend time with family. With Father's Day coming up, there are quite a few camping activities you can do together.


1. Grill Some Great Food


RV campgrounds are usually smack in the middle of a national park, far away from restaurants. This isn't a bad thing, though. You can use this opportunity to grill some great food. Dads can build on their culinary skills by grilling burgers, hot dogs, fish, and sausages.


Grilling up dinner or lunch together is a nice way to bond and socialize, too. Everyone can participate in the grilling process, whether it's skewering vegetables, setting the table, or flipping burgers. And there's no better time for conversation than around a campfire with good food.



2. Find a Perfect Spot to Fish


If you're able to find a good fishing spot, you can spend the morning fishing. There won't be any crowds, and you can find a peaceful and serene location. Fishing is a skill developed over time, and fishing on Father's Day is a great opportunity for fathers to pass on their knowledge. Children can figure out how to select the right bait, discover different types of fish, and develop patience and perseverance.


Fishing can also be a great way to unwind and relax in nature. In addition, fathers can use this time to foster a love for nature in their kids. Most importantly, however, families can create lasting memories.


3. Go Kayaking


If adventure is what you and your family love, then kayaking is one of the best activities to do on a lake or river. You can explore caves, navigate rivers, and see wildlife up close. It's also a teamwork-oriented activity, so you'll get to learn how to paddle effectively with your family while you're out on the water. Want to see the sun go down on a kayak? A Father's Day camping trip is the perfect opportunity to do so.


4. Build a Campfire


After a day of swimming, hiking, kayaking, or exploring the area, you'll want to get cozy around a campfire. Teaching children how to build a fire instills outdoor and survival skills. It's not always easy to get a fire started when you're out in nature. Children need to learn how to arrange the firewood, collect the twigs needed to start the fire, and so on. There are also fire safety rules to ensure the surrounding trees and shrubs don't burn down. A campfire at night can be fun, too. You can roast marshmallows, tell stories, or just simply use the time to relax and get warm.


5. Look at the Stars


One of the advantages of camping in a national park or a remote area is less light pollution, which provides the best conditions for stargazing. You can study the stars, learn more about astronomy, or engage in some long-exposure night photography.


When the skies are unobstructed, bring out your telescopes and stargazing equipment to see the sky in detail. And if you're lucky, you may catch a shooting star or a meteor shower.
