At The Dyrt, we share camping tips from our community of campers and campgrounds. With so many campers staying home, we continue to share this info so you can plan future camping trips across the U.S.

I bring my Kubb set with me whenever I go camping. It’s one of my favorite camping games that anyone can enjoy. Not sure how to play Kubb? Check out this video then go make some camping games for yourself!

How do you make a your very own Camping Kubb set? Easy!

To make one set you’ll need:





  • one (1) 6′ piece of wood, 4″ x 4″
  • two (2) 6′ dowels, 1.5″ – 2″

Step one: Make your King

You can make Kubb and many other of our favorite camping games yourself.

Chop off 12″ of the 4″ x 4″. This is the wood for the king, which acts like the eight ball in the game of Kubb. Knock it over at the end to win, but if you knock it over early you lose. Either way it only gets hit once per game, and it often gets decorated to show off how important it is.

The amount of decoration is up to you. Some people make the King all fancy pancy. Me? I just cut a 12” chunk of the  4″ x 4″ and call it a day.

Step two:

Cut ten six-inch lengths and you have your ten kubbs.

Kubb makes camping games feel brand new!

Step three:

Cut the dowels into 14-inch chunks so you have ten in total.

The dowel is an important part of these camping games.

This is a great throwing game and goes well with beer.

One of the simplest and easiest camping games to take with you: Kubb!

Let the camping games begin!
