Parks to Enjoy RV Camping
If you love nature, then you just can't beat getting out in the woods, from the smell of fresh pine and a smoking fire to sleeping under the stars. All you have to do is park at a campsite and enjoy everything that RV camping has to offer. With a recreational vehicle, you combine endless outside pleasures with inside comfort, and you'll be equipped with all the amenities you need for an adventurous trip. Going on a road trip is a vacation everyone should take at least once in their lives.
Give in to the lure of the open road-- the kids will love the experience, too. Some are quite rustic and offer few amenities other than a place to park; while others have electric hookups, water, and even free WiFi. (Because you don't have to sleep in a tent on the hard ground to reconnect with nature.) You have plenty of options - there are more than 16,000 campgrounds across the U.S.
1. Crater Lake National Park, Oregon
The breathtaking views make this park a very desirable camping location. The Mazama Campground offers sites from just $31, according to NPS. A few of the RV sites have electric hookups, and they cost $35. The campground has drinking water, flush toilets, showers, and even laundry facilities.
2. Hunting Island State Park, South Carolina
Camping is available at the northern end of the park near the ocean, according to South Carolina Parks. You can park under trees and still have a view of the ocean. Each site has water and electrical hookups.
3. Pecan Park Campground, Texas
The campground is located in a large grove of green pecan trees along the stunning San Marcos River. The mild winters in San Marcos make it a prime destination for "snowbirds" and other "Winter Texans," according to PecanPark.com. Make sure you visit the Wonder World Park, the site of a cave caused by an earthquake more than 30 million years ago.
4. Zion River Resort, Utah
A lot of people go there in the winter to escape the cold and enjoy stunning scenery of green valleys, red rocks, redstone cliffs, and maybe even a little snow. Full hook-ups, concrete parking pads, grills, and free WiFi are also available for guests.
5. American Heritage RV Park, Virginia
Tour the blacksmith shop, let the kids play Revolutionary Era games, and watch live reenactments of America's past. But there's also 70 acres of lush green meadows and woodlands.
