RV Parks & Campgrounds
Today’s RV parks and resorts are often referred to as “the last small towns in America.” The friendliness of RVers, the sense of community with fellow RVers and the wealth of amenities that many parks provide offer RV travelers a feeling of a hometown on the road. No matter whether you’re a family looking for an action-packed trip, a couple seeking relaxation and pampering or somewhere in between, there’s an RV resort waiting.
Find RV Campgrounds
RV campgrounds can be as small as a few dozen sites to booming resorts with hundreds of sites, catering to RVs of every type and size. Some RVers prefer the simple solitude of campgrounds that provide merely the basics of electricity and fresh water at the site. Others prefer full-service options with electricity, water and sewer hookups for each RV. Electronically dependent travelers appreciate the Wi-Fi service provided at many campgrounds.
Friendships forged at campgrounds often bring groups of RVers together throughout the year, or at the same time each year to reconnect. Others plan their stays at particular parks because of how the staff makes them feel so welcomed and at home with each returning visit.
Amenities and Activities Galore
Many of today’s campgrounds are destinations in and of themselves, offering a wide range of getaway activities that go beyond the standard swimming pools and camp stores. Campgrounds located near popular tourist destinations frequently offer shuttle transportation to and from town. Here is a sampling of amenities that RV campgrounds offer, all designed to keep families entertained without needing to leave the campground property.
