Where To Travel In Your RV: Choosing A Campsite

When it comes to RV travel destinations, the question is not, "Where can you go?" but rather, "Where can't you go?" There are so many choices in RV travel; the real challenge becomes selecting a single destination out of the many possibilities available. Whether you are hitting the road for a weekend or a month, there are more than enough options to suit every taste and budget. However, when it comes to selecting your campsite, there are a few travel tips that will ensure any RV vacation is a successful one.

The Advantage of RV Clubs

If you like to get your money's worth when you travel, an RV club might be the solution. Membership into these clubs can often get you discounts on campsites, as well as plenty of good advice on how to choose the best campsites for your needs. RV clubs can also help you choose the right vehicle if you are still in the market for when or are ready for an upgrade. Dealerships like Ameri-Camp are found across the country and offer a variety of travel trailers and fifth-wheels, and an RV club can advise you on how to shop for the best trailer for your individual needs.

Making Reservations

Most campgrounds will make reservations for you, whether you are considering a state park or a private campground. It is always a good idea to make a reservation in advance, especially if you are traveling during peak season for a particular area. If possible, you can even scope out the park to find your ideal camping spot, whether you like to find a location near the bathhouse or on the lakeshore. Many camps also offer activities like swimming and a playground for the kids, so take these amenities into consideration as well when you are booking your campsite.

Types of Parks

There are numerous types of RV destinations to choose from, with private campgrounds, state parks and national parks topping the list. Private parks can range from a rustic campsite to a full service resort complete with a golf course, pools, tennis courts and even spas. The quality of private campgrounds can vary considerably, so do your research before booking one of these locations, by getting a recommendation from someone who has staying in the camp or by checking out the area yourself. National and state parks can provide plenty of breathtaking scenery and outdoor adventure, but the campsites may be very rustic and some may not include RV hookups. Some campers prefer to find a private campsite outside of the state park so they can enjoy the wonders of the park during the day and the amenities of a private campground at night.
