Camping provides families with fond memories that last a lifetime. Among the most attractive things about sleeping underneath the stars is how easy it is to customize a trip to your liking. You can take into account the ages of the family members traveling with you to your favorite campsite. That way, you ensure that everyone enjoys the camping experience equally.

Some of the best activities for families to do together while they camp include:

1. Taking pictures.

Capture the camping experience and share it with your family and friends at home. Post your photos to your social media accounts and watch everyone like and add comments on your wall.

2. Going on a nature hike.

See what fantastic things you can find in the “wild”. Come up with the most unusual item and try to locate it.

3. Exploring the area around the campground.

You’ll find everything you could dream of doing near our campgrounds. Go ziplining, bowling, golfing or to the movies. You’ve got plenty of options to choose from.

Now that you have some general ideas of what you can do on any camping trip, let’s talk about the things our campsite offers. That way, you can plan ahead, make any reservations you need to make, and come up with a travel itinerary that meets the length of your stay. You’ll want to pack as much fun as you can into your visit to our campsite.

Amazing Activities Abound for All Ages of Campers

Saco River Camping Area provides fun activities for the whole family to engage in. From shopping our Country Store to spending the afternoon playing laser tag, there is something for everyone to enjoy. Opt to spend time on the water in a canoe, kayak or on a tube. Each activity is a great way to beat the summer heat!

If you want to explore the campgrounds in a fun and unusual way, rent a Saco Fun Cycle, our unique cycles made of a sturdy steel frame, nylon bucket seat, mag wheels, and front coaster brake. It’s fun and an entertaining way to exercise, too, because it works the muscles in your legs. Our Banana Peel Cycles are perfect for young campers because they’re smaller versions of our Fun Cycles.
