When you’re researching vacation ideas, you’re probably faced with a lot of options. Where should you go? How long, and expensive, is the flight to get there? Would it be better to drive? How does the family feel about a long road trip? And so on.
There’s a lot to take into consideration.
And unfortunately, there’s often a lot of frustration. Waking everyone up at 4 AM to catch a flight isn’t the most relaxing start to your family getaway, is it? If you want to avoid the aggravation while having time for fun adventures, staying in an RV park is the answer!
These are some compelling reasons to choose RV camping that you may have never thought
You have room to move around.
Hotel rooms can get stuffy and cramped, especially if you have small children.
When you stay in an RV park, you have the option of going for walks and enjoying your surroundings. And no more holing yourself up in a hotel room, trying to get some quiet time after the kids go to sleep. You can sit outside with food, drinks, and good company—it’s really no
You don’t have to worry about packing light.
It’s a pain to haul suitcases through hotel lobbies, and you’re really limited in what you can bring along on your travels.
But when you choose RV camping, you can bring as much as you want! Even a pop-up camper will fit all your things more comfortably than a stuffy suitcase.
You’ll be able to bring your mountain bikes, sports equipment, paddle boards, and even that extra jacket you might need just in case. And you definitely won’t have to worry about being unprepared!
It’ll save your travel fund.
When you’re looking for places to stay in the western North Carolina region, you can pick a hotel room for $200-$400 per night which has a wonderful view of… the freeway.
Or, you can spend $55 to stay in an RV park with creek access, forest views, and some of the best hiking in the country.
RV camping is really the best of all worlds: views, nature, comfort, and easy exploration, all at a fraction of the price. You can use all the money you save by staying in an RV campground on park entrances, equipment rental, and other fun recreational activities.
You get to enjoy a campfire.
There are few things better than sitting around a campfire after a long day of exploring.
It’s really a crowd-favorite activity, and one of the main draws of RV camping. You have the freedom to set up a campfire on your own site, or you can choose to sit around a community fire pit if the RV park has one.
Enjoy a drink, roast somes’mores, and get to know your fellow campers. Whatever you choose,it’s going to be a lot more fun than staying in a cramped hotel room.
You’re that much closer to cool activities.
Even if you’re a city-lover who isn’t exactly thrilled by the idea of camping, and RV park will still be a great fit for you.
You certainly have the option to explore the great outdoors. But if that’s not really your thing,you still have access to the nearby comforts of a city just a short drive away.
And if you are into exploring the great outdoors, staying in an RV park puts you right in the middle of it. Lakes, rivers, waterfalls, mountain biking, hiking trails, and more are within close reach.
You can cook your own food.
RV camping gives you the opportunity to try out all those campfire recipes you have saved on Pinterest.
There’s just something about cooking over an open flame that makes the food taste that much better. And since you can fit all your cooking supplies in your RV, you don’t have to skimp on ingredients or cookware.
And we all know that cooking can help save a lot of money, too, so definitely take advantage of it!
You’ll feel as comfortable as you do at home.
And that’s because, in a way, your RV is your home.
You can bring a comfortable mattress, plenty of clothing, and anything else you need from the house. And you don’t have to worry about whether or not your sheets were properly cleaned–or the strangers who slept in the bed the night before–like you would a hotel room.
You and your kids get to meet new people.
RV campers are generally a social bunch. And there’s always the chance that your fellow RV park neighbors will have the whole family with them, giving you and your kids a chance to meet some cool new people!
Rather than staying in a hotel room or even a single-person campsite, try staying in an RV campground. You’ll surely leave with some new friends and great stories!
It’s comfortable for the whole family.
Camping is an activity that’s more fun with company. But sometimes, it’s hard to get everyone in the family on board—especially if they aren’t crazy about the idea of roughing it.
Staying in an RV gives everyone the chance to enjoy the outdoors at their leisure.
For example, if you have older campers, they may be more comfortable spending their days outside exploring and their nights inside the RV. This way, everyone can be included. And no one has to spend the night in a sleeping bag if they’d prefer a bed.
And most RV campsites are also pet-friendly, so you don‘t have to worry about leaving your four-legged family members behind!
You get to enjoy the journey.
You know the saying that “the journey is more important than the destination?”
It’s a little cliché, but that’s really the case when it comes to RV camping!
Instead of viewing travel time as a necessary evil that you have to endure to get to the destination, RV camping makes the entire trip enjoyable.
Staying in an RV park means no more dealing with musty airplane air, congested traffic in the city, cramped hotel rooms, or overpriced car rentals.
You’ll actually get to enjoy your entire vacation! And you’ll see a lot more of the country, including some wonderful mountain views like the ones here in western North Carolina.
So if you’re looking for a stress-free getaway, you
really don’t need to look further than an RV park.
Enjoy picnics outside, rejuvenating time spent in nature, and making invaluable family memories–all without the hustle and frustration of other vacations.
