The City of Round Rock’s Parks and Recreation Department presents the annual Family Campout on Friday, Sept. 18 through Saturday, Sept. 19 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 then enjoy the Outdoor Expo celebrating National Hunting and Fishing Day. 

Outdoor Expo family activities include fun and educational programs with Texas Parks & Wildlife, Austin Zoo, Pioneer Farms, Portable Adrenaline, SA Outdoors and more!

Registration for the campout is required. 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.
