One of the best parts about going camping in your RV is spending time with friends and family. While many campers love to travel to go hiking and explore different destinations, they may forget that with camping comes a lot of downtime. There’s nothing like relaxing around a campfire with the people you love most, but if you and your family get bored every now and then, a great way to keep things entertaining is with a family-friendly card game. From humorous questions to competitive games, here are five of the best family-friendly card games to play in your RV, at the picnic, or wherever else you want to have a good time.
