Spring is almost here! The weather is beautiful, the trees are budding, what could be a better way to get outside and enjoy nature than camping with the whole family? Southlake Parks and Recreation’s annual Spring Family Campout is the perfect family trip for beginner and expert campers!

The campout will be Saturday, May 3 –  Sunday, May 4 at the Bob Jones Park Day Camp Area (near the BooBoo’s Buddies Dog Park). Tent set up may begin at 4:00 p.m. on Saturday. The cost is $25.00 per campsite, which includes the cost for two  campers. Each additional camper is $10.00 and there is a limit of five people per campsite. The registration fee includes dinner on Saturday and breakfast Sunday morning. Children must register with at least one adult.

For the novice campers, City of Southlake staff will help with tent set-up and tear down, prepare dinner Saturday night and breakfast Sunday morning and will have plenty of fun activities for the family. Your camping experience will include after-dark games, Storytime with the Southlake Library, s’mores around the fire and star gazing. The Southlake Family Campout is the perfect introduction to camping!

For those campers who like it more rugged, there will be hiking around Lake Grapevine, fishing at Bob Jones Park and geocaching. Participants are welcome to pick and choose which actives they would like to partake in or are just welcome to relax by the fire.

You can register online or in person at the Community Services office at 1400 Main St, Suite 210. For more information, please contact (817) 748-8019. Be sure to register early at as Camp Sites fill quickly!
