To find good RV campgrounds while traveling, visit a website that allows you to plan your trip, such as Google Maps. Enter the departure and arrival locations and then select campground options based on your preferences, such as nearby tourist attractions, scenic routes and avoiding tolls. If a campground looks ideal, search for its website, and gather additional information. Look for reviews from previous campground visitors to get a better idea of what to expect.
For additional information on campgrounds, use a printed campground directory. A printed directory can be found online, at some bookstores and at some auto clubs. Depending on your needs, you may want to check to see whether or not the campground has Wi-Fi, electric and water hook-ups, dumping stations and other amenities. Trailer parks usually include modern features for your convenience. However, if you prefer more privacy and seclusion, a campground may be a better option.
When choosing where to park the RV, it is important to consider how far away the entrance or exit is, how easy or difficult it is to park or back up the RV, how close you are to your neighbors and how close you are to community areas. Most RV park websites include a map that allows you to determine and reserve an ideal location in advance.
