Read, take naps. If there are museums or other indoor attractions local to the CGs, we might visit them. If the rain is light, we'll sit outside under the awning and take short walks (wearing rain gear and/or carrying umbrellas.) We don't change much of our activity due to rain. :)

I usually sit outside under the drooped awning and enjoy the rain. We've never been camping where it rained so long or so hard that we were confined inside (we're lucky that way), and if that was to happen (and the forecast didn't have an outlook that signified an improvement for the remainder of our intended trip) we'd probably pack up and head home early.

We've been rained on before, but it's usually either a passing storm, or just an hour or so in duration.

watch a movie,play on the computer,sit outside under the awning and watch it rain if it's warm outside. nothing more relaxing than taking a nap while the rain hit the top of the camper.

Rain around here doesn't last very long. We just wait 5 minutes then, continue with what we were doing.

We will hide out either inside or under the awning and play games with the kids.

Naps are good any time :D

Totally agree - rain on the roof is the most relaxing sound in the world. When I was a child in England, our caravan had an aluminium roof which made it real easy to hear. I have always loved the rain. Now, wind....? That you can keep! :twisted:
