All The Different CAmping Options in North America

In North America, there are over 18,000 campgrounds ranging from high class resorts with every amenity, through owner run campgrounds where hospitality is the key, to the more basic camping experience found at National, State and Provincial Park campgrounds and finally there is free camping, also known as dispersed camping or boondocking for example on the beautiful  public lands that have been set aside by the government for recreational purposes. We want to give you a taste of each of these similarly homely, but quite different in style, experiences.
First the ‘high class resorts’ These may be privately or corporately owned and will normally be pristine, in a great location, with paved roads and RV sites, and full hook-ups to town water, electricity and waste disposal. They will have smart showers and toilets for the use of ‘campers’. There will be a Clubhouse, often a restaurant and bar area; and of course a swimming pool or private beach, plenty of children’s activities and sporting opportunities.
How about the family owned and operated campgrounds.  More often than not with paved roads and RV sites and with full hook-ups to town water, electricity and waste disposal. They will have clean showers and toilets, often a general store and Laundromat.  There will normally be a swimming pool unless they have lake or beach swimming;  a children’s activity area and often family style entertainment in season.
National, State and Provincial Park Campgrounds These provide the most idyllic locations and the opportunity to ‘commune with nature’. Waking up in an amazing location, with nothing but the birdsong and the sunrise to disturb you, has to be just perfect. Rarely will you find water or electric or waste disposal hook-ups at these campgrounds – not a problem if you make sure your freshwater tank is full, your propane tank is full (for your gas hob, water heater and fridge) and your waste holding tanks are empty.
Dispersed Camping / Boondocking There is nothing like the feeling of freedom setting up camp in an ideal, secluded, picturesque campsite out in the hinterlands somewhere. Not in a campground, and not in an RV park, but camping somewhere on the beautiful public lands that have been set aside by the government for recreational purposes.
