The City of Round Rock’s Parks and Recreation Department presents the Family Campout on Friday and Saturday, Sept. 25 and 26, 2015 at Old Settlers Park.
Come spend the night in Old Settlers Park! You’ll pop your tent around the Lakeview Pavilion, eat a hamburger dinner, have fun, play games, sit around the campfire eating s’mores and then off to sleep under the stars. Wake up with the sunrise and enjoy breakfast, and then check out the National Hunting and Fishing Day activities.

About the Campout
It is said that a family that plays together stays together. Is there a better way to create lasting memories than through camping, fishing or other similar activities? We don’t think so; however, fewer families are enjoying these activities, the outdoors, and each other.
The Family Campout shows families how fun the outdoors can be. The campout will lead into National Hunting and Fishing Day.
