When parents think about camping with their kids, they can get really overwhelmed at first. Yes, it does take a whole lot of planning, packing and preparation, but we promise you it's the most beautiful experience that will make you bond with your little ones like never before. All you need is packing the right gear, finding the perfect camping spot and projecting nothing but positive vibes! That's why we've decided to give you a head-start by sourcing a list of awesome camping venues that will help you make the sweetest family memories. From camping next to stunning lakes and natural pools, to being in the middle of red sand dunes and magnificent mountains, we've got you!
Enjoy a beautiful camping experience in the middle of the breathtaking Saih Al Salam Desert. Al Qudra lake will immerse you in the beauty of nature, where your little ones will be excited to run around and meet ducks and swans.
Wadi Shawka will elevate your camping experience by being a great place for hiking trails, cycle paths and natural pool dips! Right now is the perfect timing to explore the wild mountain side, as there's a bigger probability for multiple and larger pools of water during the winter.
How excited will your kiddos be if you told them they can catch a glimpse of the Milky Way? Well, this can happen just under an hour and half out of Abu Dhabi heading to Al Ain. Al Quaa Milky Way spot is truly unique and awe-inspiring adventure, offering the ideal spot to see the stunning galaxy! Enjoy laying down with your family as you gaze the beautiful night sky above.
Fossil Rock is one of the most exciting and fun desert spots in the UAE. Think camping, dune bashing, bugging and so many more adventurous activities for both parents and kids. Just an hour away from Dubai, immerse yourselves in a beautiful world of huge red dunes that make the perfect spot for sandboarding and lots of fun memories to be cherished forever. And after you're done with all the fun, you can relax and set up camp next to a cozy bonfire.
Are your little ones mountain lovers? Take them to Al Hajar Mountains for a great and relatively easy camping experience! Not only is it a not so difficult drive from Dubai, it also does not require a 4x4 car. This awesome spot offers unique views, as well as lots of swimming holes to dip in. It actually hosts one of the deepest natural wide waterholes, the Hatta Pool.
If you're looking for less-of-a-hassle camping spot, head to Wadi Al Qahfi campsite, which is located above the river bank. And if you're more of the adventurous type and would rather camp elsewhere, bring along your camping mat or mattress, as most of the grounds are quite rocky and could hurt the kiddos when sitting or sleeping. Tell your kids to be on the look out, as they can be lucky enough to get a glimpse of some wildlife creatures such as rare birds, lizards and nocturnal foxes.
Located in the gorgeous Liwa Desert, the Empty Quarter is one of the best camping spots in the magnificent UAE desert. Hosting sprawling dunes and smooth sands makes it a great venue for family-friendly desert activities, such as camping, dune bashing, sand surfing, barbecuing and star gazing. It lives up to its name by being literally empty, so you better go prepared with all the necessary gear, or better head with an experienced camper and a 4x4 car.
Camping right on the beach is as cool as camping gets! A heaven for both parents and kiddos - with the sea and sand, what else can one want? Head over to the beautiful shores of Umm Al Quwain and set camp to the north or south Al Rafaah, where you can go fishing, kayaking in the sea or through mangroves or even spot birds like flamingos!
Bond with your family while camping on the sea shore at Dibba. Relax and enjoy the sound of the soothing calm waves, while your little ones splash around all day (no need to worry as the water is quite calm at Dibba). Pack all food and drinks that you might need, as commercial stores are quite far from there.
Offering sensational weather all year long, Khor Kalba is a must visit for everyone in the UAE. You can find some great camping spots along its coastline and enjoy the deserted, sandy beaches and the interesting remains of fishing boats pulled up on the shores. Wake up to refreshing morning dips and leave your little ones barefoot to explore the mudflats.
Being a protected nature reserves makes it an unrivaled place for family walks along the beautiful corniche, while collecting shells, anchors and drift words. Get your camera ready as this is quite the perfect spot for family photos, with its breathtaking sunrises and sunsets! You and your kiddos can also easily catch a glimpse of various wild animals, like rare birds, turtles and fish, so please keep the areas as clean and untouched as possible as Khor Kalba is their home.
