to RVing, you’re probably discovering there’s a lot to learn about this
rewarding way to travel. Plus, there you have so many great RV parks and
campgrounds to choose from. But did you know that all RV parks aren’t alike?
They’re a bit like people in that they each have their own distinct
personalities. And finding the best ones to stay at is just a matter of
narrowing down what you’re looking for. Here are a few
- Family-friendly – These parks offer
plenty of activities families can enjoy together like games, craft projects
and ice cream socials. Many of them also have kid-friendly amenities like
playgrounds, splash pads and pools.
- 55 and over – As you might expect,
these parks offer activities and amenities targeted to the adult market. They
also typically accommodate longer-term stays by offering monthly or seasonal
- Transient – These parks are
designed for campers who are planning on shorter stays, for example,
overnight, a weekend or a week.
- Long-term – While these parks
aren’t age-specific like 55 and over parks are, they are similarly prepared
to accommodate campers who want to stay for a longer period of time such as a
month or an entire season.
– These parks make sure furry family members feel welcome by offering
amenities such as dog parks and agility equipment. Some even offer kennels
for short-term boarding while campers are out exploring the local
- Tourist-focused – These RV parks
cater to campers who are traveling to the area to visit specific attractions,
such as theme parks or national monuments. This means that during the day,
they’re usually away from their campsite visiting these local
- Luxury RV Resorts – Typically
designed for campers who have the largest (Class A) rigs, these RV parks
offer many luxurious amenities such as resort-style pools, putting greens,
sports activities, onsite restaurants and spa services.
- Glamping – While the term glamping
(a combination of glamour and camping) may conjure up images of safari tents
equipped with all the comforts of home, it is possible to go glamping in an
RV, as well. Comfy touches like throw pillows and cushions, area rugs and
bistro lights can all make the site feel cozier and a bit more glam. Many RV
parks offer this style of camping.
