The place you decide to camp in your RV can have a major impact on your vacation. While planning your trip, consider the following factors when choosing your RV campsite.
Make a budget
If you haven’t already, make a budget for your trip. Once you know how much you’re willing to spend for each night at a campsite, it will be easier to select the one that offers the best bang for your buck.
Know the length of your stay
If you anticipate staying at a campsite for only a short time — such as a single night while traveling to your destination — you won’t need a lot of amenities. Allocate a bigger portion of your budget to campsites where you plan to spend more time since you’ll get a lot more use out of their amenities.
Pick your amenities
No two campsites are alike. Most of them come with access to water and electric hookups. Some campsites even offer additional amenities like family-friendly recreational zones, free or paid Wi-Fi hotspots, and on-site supplies, like firewood, and services, like RV repairs. Make sure you pick a campsite offering the amenities you need and none of the premium features you can do without.
Locate nearby activities
Choosing the right campsite is a matter of what you plan to do in the area. National and state parks are a great choice if you are looking to get isolated from civilization and enjoy nature. If your goal, however, is to visit a nearby city or attend an event, keep in mind that few cities permit RV campsites within their limits. You’ll have better luck finding a campsite closer to the suburban areas near your destination.
