Finding The Perfect Campsite

You’re on the road exploring, without a care in the world . . . but wait!

You need a place to camp your rig for the night.

Sure, you could stay in a Walmart parking lot, but Boondock RV-ing (camping without water/power hookups) only works for so long. With 40.5 million* campers and avid RVers in America, the demand for RV parks has never been higher. With the increased number of parks and fluctuation of those closing and those opening, we highly recommend getting ahold of the campsite prior to pulling up Google maps and beelining there. Most credible RV parks these days will have a Yelp page and/or a business website. Look for information on their RV size restrictions, what hookups they offer, and whether or not they accept pets.

State parks often have RV parks, and while they are typically surrounded by beautiful terrain, they may lack closeby amenities such as grocery and general stores. We’ve found a great app ReserveAmerica, (available on Android & Apple Store) that allows you to check campsite availability and book your spot. We’ve included links to download the app at the bottom of this post.

Now for the fun stuff…
