Going camping is a wonderful way to experience the outdoors and see new locations and have new experiences. However, you can’t spend all your time hiking, biking, fishing, and exploring. At some point, you’re bound to end up hanging at the campground during the day.
To keep yourself and the others at your campsite from getting bored, here are some fantastic outdoor games to try.
Mubles is a simple and family friendly game that can be a real joy to play no matter where you are. The game consists of several different colored balls. The white ball is the target ball. It’s tossed underhand out into an area and then the other players have to get their colored balls as close to the target ball as possible. The person who’s the closest scores in that round.
The simplicity of the game and its rules is what makes it so fun. Rounds can get especially interesting depending on a variety of factors including the distance of the target ball, the terrain you’re playing in, and the skill of the players. It’s fun for a couple but can also be fun for groups!
2. Cornhole or Bean Bag Toss
Cornhole or bean bag toss is one of the most common games you’ll see at tailgating parties, cookouts, and campgrounds. The reason? It’s a lot of fun, super easy to set up, and very affordable! Also, it’s a great all ages game. It’s easy to play with two people or four, too. The goal of the game is pretty obvious, toss the bean bags into the hole in the board.
I’ve come across several different scoring methods and distances between the boards that people like to use, so I’m not going to make any stipulations here. You can play it however you want. Although, if you want some rules to go off of, I suggest you check out these official rules from the American Cornhole Association.
3. Ladderball or Ladder Golf
Ladderball is another fun game that the whole family can participate in. The goal of the game is to get the unique ball and rope combinations to wrap around a series of rungs on the ladder-like stands. Each rung of the ladder is worth different points.
This is another game that I’ve played with different people and found that the rules and scoring can vary from group to group. If you want some official rules to go off, check out these official rules.
Any of these games will keep you busy while camping. If you have a big group of people, consider bringing more than one along. You can also do card games, board games, and other games that work great both inside the RV and out on a picnic table.
These are just a few of the games available. What’s your favorite outdoor game?
