Best Board Games for Camping - A Bountiful Love

Best Board Games for Camping

   Where are my camping-loving and outdoor-loving friends at?  Camping is so much fun most especially when you have the camping gears you need and the delicious meals that you can prepare outdoors. There is something special about cooking and eating at a campsite. I know tent camping is not for everybody but whether you are an RV camper, a trailer camper, a car, or a van camper...I know we can all agree that the outdoors does good to our soul and mental health. Camping should not be complicated. Just like with anything else, there are no two campers alike. What you may perceive as essential camping gear may not be mine. You can be a minimalistic camper and I know be a "bring everything I can" camper.

   I may enjoy cooking from scratch on a camping stove or campfire and you can be a "meal prep everything" kinda camper.  You cater to your camping needs and wants according to your family dynamic. At the end of the day, great memories will be made. If you have kids both young and older, you may occasionally hear.."I am bored". Most especially if a child has developed a dependency on electronics. Trust me, boredom is good. That is when they unlock creativity and the need to explore. We do not bring electronics when we camp except for our phones. We do not let them play any games with our phones but they can listen to music. We have a Bluetooth speaker but most often we just use a regular battery-operated radio (AM/FM) radio like this one. Other times, our kids explore or we play board games! Here's a round-up of fun, educational, and exciting board games that you can play while you are camping. These board games are not just strictly for families with kids but also for a group of friends who loves to play board games while they enjoy the outdoors.  Each game is linked to Amazon so you can easily find it.
