When it comes to choosing the best campground for your next family vacation, you have many choices. However, those options may be limited depending on the type of camping you opt to do.
Some families want to camp in a tent while others would rather enjoy the comfort of a luxury RV. The campground you choose will need to be able to accommodate your camping style while offering the activities that you and your loved ones want to enjoy.
Most RV campgrounds offer parking spaces for RVs and travel trailers. Each space has an RV hookup which provides electricity and water. At some campgrounds, you can even get cable and WiFi service. While some of these campgrounds have spaces for tents, many do not.
If you don’t want to stay in an RV but are not ready to rough it, you can choose a cabin campground. The type of cabin available can range from a luxury yurt to a one-room wooden cabin. You can have first-rate accommodations, or you can have bare-bones service.
If you’re going to rent a cabin, you must ask what is included in the rental. Some cabin campgrounds do not provide linen. If you do not bring your sheets and towels, you will need to rent them.
There are many private and public campgrounds across the country where tent camping is allowed. These campgrounds may also accommodate trailers and RVs, however, there may be restrictions based on size and weight.
Tent campgrounds provide a campsite which will usually include a tent pad, a firepit, and a picnic table. These campsites are usually blocked off from each other by trees. The campground may offer RV hookups, bathrooms, showers, and water. However, some do not provide any of these services.
Check the Amenities Before You Book Your Campsite
Each campground can offer different amenities. You need to decide what you need to have a great family vacation. You can call ahead or check online to determine if the campsite you’re interested in provides the services you need.
Check the Location of the Campsite
Before you reserve the campsite, try to get a picture of the area on the campground website. This can help you determine if the area is in the sun or near water. You can also locate bathrooms, activity centers and other amenities that you may want to be close to, or that you want to avoid.
Make Sure The Activities You Want Are Available
Before you book your campsite, make sure the activities you want to enjoy during your vacation are available. Some activities are seasonal or dependent on weather or other conditions. Ask before you book to avoid being disappointed when you arrive.
By knowing which type of camping you’ll be doing and finding out more about the campground and campsite, you can pick the best location for your next family vacation. Then all you need to do is go on your trip and enjoy yourself.
