Make Your Grandchildren's Camping Vacation a Lasting Memory

When you’re used to flying solo (or as a duo), a week of camping with grandchildren can be as stressful as it is fun. Camping with grandkids at campgrounds Here are 5 quick tips to creating a functional, safe and enjoyable environment for your short-term (and just plain short) guests.

1) Kiddy-Up Your RV

Besides packing kid-stuff, think about how the RV itself is or is not a place that welcomes your grandchildren. Just like you would child-proof your home before they come to visit, you should child proof your RV. Don’t forget to cover electrical outlets, eliminate dangers like hanging blind cords, and secure stove knobs from accidental turn on. I’d also suggest taking a good look at how easily your door opens outward – I’ve seen too many children push on the screen only to pop it open and tumble down the steep RV steps.

Create a fun, comfortable place for your grandchildren to sleep in the RV too. Camping with grandchildren is the most fun when you’re not exhausted from lack of sleep. When I was younger, my grandfather had names for each part of the RV, labeled from his old naval days. There was the poop deck, the crows nest and of course, where Grandpa slept was the captain’s quarters.

If you’re taking your teen grandchildren camping with you, remember that their needs are different too. My grandfather mounted a mirror on the wall next to an outlet, and used a new cutting board to create a “dressing table” that folded down flat against the wall when not in use. It was the perfect space for blow drying my 14 year old feathered hair and putting on my makeup before heading out to prowl for cute boys at the campground.

2) Pack for the occasion

First of all, I want to remind you (in case it’s been a while since your kids were little) that whether your kid is 6 or 16, he is not good at packing. Here’s a hint you may not know, though – frazzled mom who’s late getting on the road to drop the kids at grandma’s house, well she’s not very good at packing either. Pack a few extra essentials for your trip camping with grandchildren such as extra tooth brushes, but don’t worry too much, there’s always a camp store nearby at most RV parks.

When taking along younger grandkids, toys are an easy addition to your rig. Turning one of your under-bench storage areas into a toy bin shouldn’t be too difficult for a one week trip. Pack movies that they enjoy, books for afternoon reads, and a few of their comfort items like a special stuffed animal or blanket. If you can, pack a few toys that your grandchildren have never seen before. They tire of their old stuff easily, but new stuff gets new interest. You don’t have to pack too many things – there are, after all, lots of things to do at camp, outside the RV!

3) Choose a kid-friendly campground

Campgrounds that have a higher Woodall’s recreation rating will likely be a better choice if you’re taking your grandkids along on the trip. (Find Woodall’s top rated campground...
