If you’re currently planning an RV camping trip for your family over the fall, you’ll want to plan out many fun outdoor activities for all of you to do as well.
After all, actually traveling in the RV is only part of the trip. Once you arrive at your campground, so you have to have things to do, right? That’s what we’re going to discuss in this article.
Here are the top family outdoor activities to do on your RV camping trip:
Hiking up mountain trails and through forests isn’t just great exercise. It’s a superb time to observe and enjoy nature and be enthralled by the natural beauty of the world.
When planning a hiking trip, you don’t just want to hike up a random trail. Rather, you will want to research the different trails and select a trail with a memorable destination, whether it be a lake, a scenic view, or whatever. Having a cool destination in mind will give you something to look forward to on the hiking trip and also be a great location to take a family picture.
Another fun outdoor activity to do on your RV trip will be bike riding. Regardless of whether you’re new bikers who would prefer an easy route or more experienced and desiring steep and challenging mountain trails, mountain biking is an equally great opportunity for getting exercise in and enjoying nature.

While it’s more suitable for families with older children, kayaking and rafting are also fun activities to do and can be more breathtaking than hiking or biking. Just make sure that you hire an experienced guide who will lead you in the right direction and ensure that everyone is kept safe, because rafting over rapids is no easy matter (especially for novice rafters).
On a calm morning or evening, one of the more peaceful outdoor activities you can do is to go fishing. Fishing is a good family activity because it’s something that both younger kids and teenagers will enjoy.
Fishing is also an important life skill to develop, so there will be no better time to teach it to your kids. If you do choose to go fishing, make sure you follow the local and state laws and regulations and have all the required licenses.
Last but certainly not least, no camping trip is truly complete without at least one evening of cooking s’mores over the campfire. This is an excellent way to unwind after a long day of camping and outdoor activities and will also be a memorable experience that each family should have at least once.
