What do you get when you combine the natural beauty of Kingman, Arizona, the innocence of childhood? A recipe for a carefree, fun-filled family vacation! But how do you keep the kids entertained? We’ve got that covered. Here’s our list of top five kid-friendly campground activities to help make your next camping trip a success!
Fishing for a Good Time? 

The great thing about fishing is it doesn’t matter how young or old you are—it is a great way to spend time with your kids that can be as interesting for them as it is for you. Arizona has some fantastic fishing opportunities to enjoy with your children. Some of the amazing  ponds and lakes in Arizona can be found at Big Bend of the Colorado State Recreation Area, Lake Havasu State Park, and Cattail Cove State Park, all of which are conveniently located near Kingman, Arizona and the Zuni Village and RV Campground.
Big Bend of the Colorado State Recreation Area is an easy 40-minute jaunt from Zuni Village. Located in Laughlin, Nevada and situated on the shores of the Colorado River at Nevada’s southern tip, this recreation area offers about two miles of sandy shoreline. The clear waters remain cool and clear year round because of the river’s location downstream from Davis Dam.
A little further out in Lake Havasu, Arizona, families can find a world famous bass fishing destination at Lake Havasu State Park. Sixty minutes from Kingman, anglers at this lake will find consistent quality and numbers of fish. It’s sure to please kids who are just learning how to hold a pole as well as satisfy more experienced fishermen.
Bass not float your boat? The beautiful blue waters at Cattail Cove State Park offer opportunities to catch not only largemouth and striped bass, but also channel and flathead catfish, crappie and bluegill.

Have Fun with Hiking
If you are a family looking for some adventure then hiking with kids in Arizona is the perfect exciting activity. There are many trails to explore and peaks to conquer, and it’s an opportunity for families to bond while exploring nature outside together. Arizona has so many diverse landscapes that will take your breath away! You’ll find yourself hiking through forests of saguaro cactus, across desert plains, up steep rocky hillsides or along riverside trails – there’s always something new around every bend. The best thing about hiking with kids is you don’t need any special gear or equipment (you might even bring your dog!). All you need is a sturdy pair of shoes, water bottles, and plenty of high-energy snacks. Great places near Kingman to explore the great outdoors with your kids are the Monolith Garden Trail and the Little Hualapai Trail. The Monolith Garden Trail is scattered with beautiful wildflowers and, though 7 miles long in its entirety, is a readily accessible trail for all skill levels. The Little Hualapai Trail is shorter at 3.4 miles, and also offers a wide variety of flowers as well as many opportunities for bird watching.

Super Swimming

While spending a comfortable stay at Zuni RV Village and campground, you can always enjoy a dip in the site’s beautifully maintained pool with ADA compliant lift. But if you and your family want to explore other opportunities to splish and splash near Kingman, there’s a wide variety of choices. There’s always the aforementioned Big Bend of the Colorado State Park, Lake Havasu State Park, and Cattail Cove State Park with lakes and rivers to dip your toe into, but there’s also a nice  splash pad at Cecil Davis Park located right in Kingman at 601 Southern Avenue and Van Buren Street.
