Camping Activities

When you want to go on a trip, you can choose to plan the entire trip or you can be spontaneous – or both at the same time. If it’s a shorter trip, you already know the weather so don’t have much planning to do other than to choose what activities you will be doing outside. If you are taking a longer trip, then you might have to plan for some rainy days.

Before you head out, regardless of the length of the trip, stop by Leisure Time RV to pick up any accessories you might need and to get your RV serviced if you haven’t done it in a while. Even if you have, it’s a good idea to have everything checked, especially if you have a motorized RV.


Some parks don’t have too many hiking trails, but if you are planning on spending your weekend with Mother Nature, be sure to pick a park that has enough trails so that you don’t get bored – or at least plan on stopping at more than one park. Pack the necessary hiking gear, including a rain jacket in case you get caught out in the rain. If you plan on climbing some steep trails, you may also want to bring a rope and other climbing equipment. You never know when you’ll meet a cliff that just begs to be climbed.


Hunting season is coming up in many states. Before you leave, be sure you have the proper hunting licenses. And, since some ammunition is difficult to get, you may want to stock up before you leave. Also, if you are leaving the state, be sure to check other states’ gun laws. Some allow you to carry a loaded weapon in the vehicle, even without a permit, but most do not.

In the event you get lucky, you’ll need a huge cooler to pack the meat in ice. If this is one of your first hunting trips and don’t have a big cooler, stop by Leisure Time RV to pick one up. You can carry the cooler in the basement storage, so get something that is huge, as long as it fits.

No matter which activities you decide on doing, double check your gear before you leave so you don’t have to buy something you already have once you get to your camping spot.
