How to Choose an RV Campground with Amenities

How to Choose an RV Campground with Amenities

Are you looking forward to the family’s first RV camping trip? Not sure which RV campground amenities you need to have a successful RV trip? Let’s take a look at RV campground tips to consider.

RV campground According to an article at, “What to Look for in an RV Campground”

“One of the first aspects to look at when choosing a campground is to determine what camp site amenities you want. When RV camping, sites can range from completely primitive to including full-hookups. If you are planning an extended trip, full-hookups are usually preferable, allowing you access to power, water and sewer. If you are interested in a more remote locale, primitive camping may be all that’s available. For tent camping, consider the ground cover that you will be camping on (a manicured lawn is most comfortable). Make sure the camp sites are dry and relatively flat, as you don’t want puddles forming under the tent if it rains and flat ground is usually much more comfortable than sleeping on lumps. Make sure you know what restroom facilities are available as well, as these can range from porta-potties, to pit toilets, to full bathrooms with sinks and showers. Some tent sites may have other offerings, such as electrical outlets for charging equipment or small shelters for storing goods. If you’re looking for a little more luxury, some campgrounds have cabins available for rent with a varying degree of furnishings.

Regardless of the mode in which you are camping, there are other aspects to a camp site. Examine the kinds of cooking options available at each campground. Find out if the camp site has a fire pit, and if not, whether you are allowed to have campfires. Some campgrounds will have charcoal grills available at each site, while others might have first-come, first-serve gas grills for camper use. Take a look at the amount of space each site gives you, some campgrounds will pack people together like sardines with little room to spread out. If you’re camping with a group, take a look at the options they have for group camping. Some campgrounds will have set-aside areas specifically for groups camping together.

Campground Amenities
Along with the camp site amenities, you have to look at the whole campground.  Amenities can vary a lot among campgrounds.  Some campgrounds may simply be a group of sites with no other amenities.  Others will have swimming pools and hot tubs (which are great after a long day of hiking), restaurants, game rooms and lounges, general stores for purchasing supplies, and laundry facilities.  Some campgrounds will also have recreational equipment available for rental such as bicycles and sports equipment.” To read the entire article click here.
