How To Have Fun While Camping With Kids

Parents everywhere agree that camping with kids is one of the most rewarding experiences ever. Taking time outdoors with your family allows you to get closer, learn more about each other, and just plain have some fun. Summer 2021 is shaping up to be an awesome one, and we're so excited to see what kind of fun you can have!

Not sure what to do with your kiddos while camping? Here are some easy ways to keep the good times rolling, especially while camping with kids at Robert, LA's Jellystone Park! You might be surprised just how much there is to do.

1. Weekend Events

At Jellystone Park in Robert, LA, we believe that every weekend deserves to be celebrated. Each Friday, Saturday, and Sunday during the camping season comes with awesome themed events for kids and adults alike! Cash in on our Father’s Day Celebration and Kids Fishing Rodeo Weekend on June 18-25, or have some fun in the sun during the Beach Party at Cindy’s Hawaiian Luau (July 9-11). Even if your camping trip only lasts a few days, Jellystone Park's weekend extravaganzas will make sure that your trip is a great one!

2. Junior Ranger Program

If your children have a hankering for something unique, try out Jellystone's Junior Ranger program! Kids sign up to volunteer in fun projects around Jellystone camp. Every hour of their work cashes in for Yogi Bucks, which can be used to buy almost anything they want at the Recreation Center, the 19th Hole, and the Ranger Station.

3. Water Spots

Take the kiddos out for some fun on the waves with one of Jellystone's many water-based activities. With two swimming pools and two unique lakes, take your pick of swimming in the open air or by the comfort of a bug-free pool. Little ones can still get in on the action, and run through our water sprayground to wash away the Louisiana summer heat.

For extra time out on the water, take one of our many canoes, paddleboats, or kayaks out for a spin. Kids love learning how to pilot their very own boat, and navigate our safe waterways with their families.

4. Real Sports

Camping is a great opportunity to spend time with the ones you love. Why not spend some of it playing 'competitive' sports with the kids?

Jellystone Park in Robert, LA offers games for everyone, from mini-golf and putt-putt to basketball and baseball. Let your kids enjoy running wild and free through one of our many playgrounds, and enjoy a picnic under our 6,000 square foot covered pavilion. Don't want to make your own food? Stop by Cindy's 19th Hole for hot dogs, pizza, and more!

5. Fishing

Swimming in the water is just one part of the fun at Jellystone. For kids who want a little something more, fishing is available at our two local lakes. We stock our water with a variety of fish, and offer all the gear and tackle you need to make the trip a success.

6. Taking A Nature Walk

The great outdoors can be an exciting place for kids big and small. Give them the gift of adventure by exploring new trails, hiking, and camping places. Keep an eye out for interesting flowers, plants, or animals, and be sure to take your time. Remember: camping isn't a race, and neither is having fun!

No matter how long you plan to stay at Jellystone Park, know that there's something to do for kids of all ages! We make it easy to have fun while camping with your family, and with events for kids big and small, there's nothing you can't enjoy. So come on down to Robert LA's Jellystone Park for a weekend or two. Book your spot online, over the phone, or through the Book Your Site portal. We'll see y'all then!
