One way to really get to know the area where you're camping is to attend the Ranger Campfire lectures in the evenings. These campground activities are fun, informative, and always entertaining. Often, the lectures include information on the plants, animals, and other natural wonders of the area around you.
The lectures are geared to families, and you'll always learn something new at each lecture. Most parks that have rangers on duty have at least one or two lectures a week, at least in the busy season. You'll have the chance to meet other campers and ask the ranger questions, too.
Sometimes the lectures include slideshows or presentations, and they usually take place at dusk, so bring a sweater or jacket, and don't forget to bring along some marshmallows for roasting after the lecture!
