TYPE OF VACATION
You first need to determine the type of vacation
you want to take. If you decide to visit major metropolitan areas, it’s
important to know that they’re likely aren’t many RV campground options within
the city limits. You’ll want to look for county campsites that are generally
located in the suburban areas surrounding your destination. For the family
looking for an all-inclusive luxury stay, there are plenty of RV resorts that
offer swimming pools, game rooms and full hookups.
When you’re not sure how to choose an RV
campsite, it’s best to start with the basics. It’s important to know the size
of your RV, as most campgrounds have limits on how large of a vehicle they can
accommodate. For example, national parks are often designed for smaller units,
25 feet in length or less. Some do accommodate larger RVs, so you’ll just
want to make sure you check the park’s website prior to selecting a rental
unit. Private campgrounds almost always accommodate RV units of all
ELECTRIC AND WATER HOOKUPS
While most RVs are self sufficient with water
tanks and generators, you may decide to not use them to avoid the usage
charges. Or, perhaps you want to rent a smaller unit without these amenities.
If this is the case, you’ll want to look for campsites that offer
electric and water hookups for a nominal fee. It is important to note that most
national and state parks do not offer hookups of any kind. If you don’t have a
self-sufficient unit, you’ll just need to be prepared to “rough it” a
SPACE TO PLAY
Some RV campsites come with very limited space.
If you have kids in your party or a group that likes to be active, consider
looking for a campsite with either grassy areas you can play in or nearby
places to explore, like hikes and creeks.
Do your research. Just like any other vacation,
you should visit numerous sites and check user reviews before booking your
stay. Look for comments and ratings about safety, cleanliness, environmental
wellness and friendliness. Nothing can make a vacation go south like showing up
to a dirty campsite with poor customer service.
