Campgrounds across plan to celebrate Easter this year with everything from Easter-themed craft activities to egg hunts and competitive events as well as visits by the Easter Bunny. A handful of campgrounds also offer special egg hunts for adults and pets, live entertainment and dancing on Saturday night as well as Easter services on Sunday. Some northern campgrounds with later opening dates are planning to have their Easter weekends in April, May and June. Here’s a sampling of Easter-themed events taking place at campgrounds across the country:
