Making the Most of Your Stay at an RV Park

In 1910, the RV was born from the union of an urge to get back out in the wild and a desire for luxury. The combination was a camping experience that many people still enjoy today. An RV trip is meant to be fun, and your stay at an RV park can make or break your vacation experience. Here are a few tips to help you make the most of an RV park. 

Book in Advance: 

This might seem obvious, but many people forget to make reservations at an RV park in advance. Showing up at your favorite RV park only to be turned away is a great way to ruin a camping trip. Some RV parks allow you to book months ahead so that you'll know that there is a space for you and your RV when you arrive. Some RV resorts have size restrictions or even restrictions on the age of your RV. So, make sure you book in advance. 

Look at Amenities: 

When you make your reservation be sure to check out what amenities the RV park offers. Some RV parks or resorts have full hookups (including sewer and electric), other spots or parks might only offer electric hookups or no hookups at all. Be sure you know what you are looking for and that the park has what you need. Some parks have extras like pools, lakeside views, hiking trails, or convenience stores. Many camps sell firewood bundles and have fire pits on sites. 

Consider Location: 

When you are choosing an RV park consider the location. How close is the park to the sights you want to see? How far is it to the nearest grocery store? Many RV parks are ideally placed next to world-famous parks and sights. If you get a good location, you'll only be minutes away from great scenery, beaches, or amazing hikes. Choose a location that works best for you and that offers what you want out of your vacation. 

Get Out and Have Fun:

It's easy to get into a routine when you have all the comforts of home in your RV, but it's important to get out and remember you are on vacation. Take advantage of all that an RV park offers in terms of the great outdoors. Embark on a hike, roast some marshmallows under the stars, take a dip in the lake, or just sit outside and read a good book while soaking up some vitamin D.
