Family Campout 2019

Spend the night in Old Settlers Park with your family!

  2019 Family Campout Schedule (TBA)

The City of Round Rock’s Parks and Recreation Department presents the annual Family Campout on Friday, Sept. 20 through Saturday, Sept. 21 at Old Settlers Park.

Come spend the night in Old Settlers Park!  You’ll pop your tent around the Lakeview Pavilion, eat dinner, have fun, play games, sit around the campfire eating s’mores, watch a movie in the park and then off to sleep under the stars. Wake up with the sunrise and enjoy breakfast before heading on your way to enjoy the rest of your weekend. 

Register your family online NOW HERE.

Registration for the campout is required. Registration fee is $10 through September 20. Each registered participant will receive two meals (dinner on Friday evening and pancake and sausage breakfast on Saturday morning, vegetarian option available if requested by September 14), s’mores and a t-shirt.
