There are so many different types of camping games to keep the fun times rolling on your camping trips! When the weather is nice, and you want to enjoy the great outdoors with games that are slightly active but not too vigorous, these camping yard games should be on your agenda!
The classic horseshoe game is made safe, easy and camping friendly with this Rubber Horseshoe Set!
It includes 4 rubber horseshoes and 4 stakes.
You have the option of using the 2 plastic stakes directly in the ground or 2 rubber mat peg stakes which can be placed on a flat surface indoors or out.
The object of the game is to toss the horseshoe at the stake and get a “ringer” or at least have the horseshoe land touching the stake.
The player with the most points wins.
P.S. I’m so glad that “almost” counts in horseshoes! LOL
Ring Toss Yard Game
The Ring Toss Yard Game is pretty straightforward and has been around forever.
This is a great camping game because it is easy to set up, transport and is safe … you’re not going to put an eye out with this one … LOL.
This one is hours of fun for the whole family.
The object of the game is to toss the rings … this set includes rope rings and plastic rings … at the wooden scoreboard and encircle a peg.
The player with the most points wins.
Bocce Ball Yard Game
Bocce ball is a classically fun outdoor game that everybody knows how to play.
The object of the game is to get as many of your team’s balls close to the pallino ball as possible by tossing/rolling them toward the small white pallino ball.
There are two teams consisting of one, two, or four players each.
The best yard games for camping are those that are compact and have a case for transportation, like this one!
Portable Cornhole Game
Cornhole is one of the most popular yard games for families and for those who are serious enough, there are cornhole tournaments that are really competitive.
The object of the game is to toss the bags toward the board and into the hole … or at least on top of the board.
Typically, cornhole boards are big and bulky which makes them difficult to transport on camping trips.
This particular Collapsible Portable Corn Hole Set is perfect for playing camp yard games!
The boards are made with a high elastic flat wire, so you just fold the boards to fit into the carrying case … they work like foldable window shades for your car.
The tear-resistant, anti-skid fabric prevents the bags from skidding on the surface.
The bad part about this set is that it is a non-match size so if you are a Cornhole purist, you will need to make room for packing a regulation sized set.
Tailgate Size CornHole Game
If you want a bit more traditional cornhole game feel, this CornHole Aluminum Frame Tailgate Size Game is a great solution!
This particular set comes in lots of different fun designs like the American Flag Edition with a distressed flag design, the Football Edition with a green and white football field design, the Red White And Blue Edition with a simple design and the LED Light Up Edition that is the original edition but with LED lights around the hole which makes great yard games for camping after the sun goes down!

Yahtzee and Farkle are typical rainy day camp games that are tons of fun but when the weather is nice, you want to play outside and “bigger” in the great outdoors!

Everything fits neatly in the carry case for convenient transportation to the campsite!
Giant Tumbling Timbers Yard Game
Jenga is the tabletop version of this Giant Tumbling Timbers Yard Game.
You stack the wooden blocks into a square tower and each player takes a turn to remove a piece and relocate it to the top of the stack.
The object of the game is to NOT make the tower fall over.
The winner is the last player to stack a block without knocking down the rest of the blocks.
Lawn Dart Game
Playing a good game of lawn darts is always fun at the campsite!

This Lawn Dart Game comes with a carry caddy that holds the weighted-tipped lawn darts and target rings.

The object of the game is to wrap the bolas around the steps of the ladder with an underhanded toss.
This is a fun game that only requires 2 players.
