With cold weather ahead, you may be looking for your last vacation of the year. Or maybe you’re fine with camping in the cold and have a lot of weekends planned ahead! Either way, finding a campsite with the right RV park amenities for you and your family is important to enjoying your trip to the fullest.
Read on to learn about some of the most popular RV park amenities to keep an eye out for during your trip planning process!
Full Hookup Stations
One of the best parts of camping at an RV park versus boondocking is enjoying the benefit of a hookup station. Reliable electricity and water can simplify your camping trip quite a lot! While these partial hookup stations are easy enough to find, a real luxury is staying at an RV park with a full hookup station.
What’s the difference? Full hookup stations include sewer hookups too! That means you can check “finding a dump station” off your RV departure checklist. Even if you’re used to using dump stations to clear your black water tanks after a great trip, it’s a treat not to have to worry about it.
This type of RV park amenity is all about making your RV really feel like a home on wheels. Removing some of those basic chores from your trip can go the extra mile to letting you focus on enjoying the vacation, the park and your surroundings!
Access to the internet is something we all take for granted. With 4G or 5G connections that rival home internet speeds, you always expect to be able to check the news, your emails or social media whenever you want! But when you’re out in the wilderness, it’s not always a guarantee. The more remote your campsite is, the more likely you are to find out you can’t get a signal (unless you packed a strong signal booster!)
Wi-Fi service as an RV park amenity guarantees that steady level of connection that we’re always used to at home. In most cases, this Wi-Fi access gives you flexibility when it’s time to rest in your RV after a day of fun in the sun. You may still not be able to do some things, like streaming HD video, but you’ll have guaranteed access to catching up on the latest news and information.
Some RV parks take it a step further and provide strong Wi-Fi access around the park grounds. So even if you’re not in the RV, you can still hop on your preferred social media platform to check in or even share photos of your trip!
Onsite Laundry Facilities
Camping can be an experience full of dirt, mud and grass stains. The more time you enjoy outdoors, the more likely your clothes are to show the evidence! If your RV has a washer and dryer, it’s not a big deal to you. But if you don’t have these essentials in your RV, you’ll need to come up with another solution.
Many RV campers choose between packing enough clothes that you don’t need to worry about laundry or cleaning their clothes the old-fashioned way at the campsite. Depending on your family, the length of your trip, and your willingness to put in the elbow grease, these may not be ideal solutions for your relaxing vacation.
If your choice of RV park includes an on-site laundry facility, you can think about extending your trip from a few days to a week or more! These types of RV park amenities make it a lot easier to enjoy extended trips without the logistical headaches that often go with it. If you’re a full-time RVer, it’s also convenient to stay somewhere and get your laundry done instead of driving off to the nearest town laundromat before you hit the road to your next destination.
While it may not be classified as a typical “amenity,” the idea of easy RV parking is something that beginner and veteran RV owners alike will enjoy. No matter how experienced you are maneuvering an RV, they’re still massive units that take a bit of work to get where you want to go. This is especially true when you’re trying to squeeze through tightly packed campsites with plenty of other RVs and people moving around.
An RV designed for easy parking tends to mean pull-through parking. It’s exactly what it sounds like – pull up to your spot and park. No backing in between anxiety-inducing campsite poles that seem impossibly close.
And when you’re ready to pack up and leave, you just keep pulling straight through and head on your way out! Whether you have a compact RV or a luxury destination trailer, you’ll appreciate the convenience and ease of any park that offers simple campsite parking.
Lastly, one RV park amenity that campers are bound to love are those campsites designed to make it a vacation for you and your furry friends. The freedom of RVing means avoiding strict hotel rules, including the ubiquitous “no pets” part that can mean a vacation for you but doggy daycare for your pets. RVing with pets is convenient, but the best parks will make it a much better experience for them (and you!)
Of course, any park is going to be heaven for your pets, but a truly pet-friendly park will have everything from dog parks to dog-friendly hiking trails and more. When you do your research for your next destination, you can look at their websites or call ahead to find out their policies on pets and what amenities they may have to pamper your pup.
