Easter Getaways

Jeff Crider shares great campground options for an Easter getaway!

Growing numbers of campgrounds celebrate Easter with everything from Easter-themed craft activities to egg hunts and visits and photos with the Easter Bunny. A handful of campgrounds also offer special egg hunts for adults, Easter services, and even Easter brunch. But not every campground that celebrates Easter does so over Easter weekend. We found one campground that celebrates Easter early, while others celebrate it late, especially Northern campgrounds that don’t open for the summer camping season until late April or early May.

Here’s a sampling of Easter-themed events taking place at campgrounds across the country:
