Whether it’s the call of the open road or the appeal of the quiet woods, RVing is a great way to get away. Even if you are spontaneous by nature, RV trip planning tools are a great resource. With a few keystrokes and mouse clicks, you can have a wealth of trip-planning information at your fingertips and be off on a great adventure.
When planning a cross-country excursion, you understand that the longer your trip, the more often you’ll be filling up. But you don’t have to be more than a weekend warrior to understand that budgeting for fuel is an important step in planning your RV trip. There are several free apps available, such as GasBuddy, that are designed to help you find the best gas prices. If you are planning your route and looking for the best place to fill up in a specific city or even if you are on the road and need to locate the best gas prices nearby, GasBuddy can help. Finding the lowest gas prices makes both you and your wallet happy. Saving money on gas means more of your budget can be allotted to doing more fun activities at your destination or attractions along the way.
Sometimes it’s wanderlust. Sometimes it’s indecision. Whatever the reason, when you know you want to travel, but aren’t sure where to go, TripAdvisor can help.
TripAdvisor is one of the many websites that helps you find information on what is – or isn’t – worth visiting. The data on TripAdvisor is user-submitted information and can be useful for removing the guesswork from your trip planning. You’ll find information about destinations, attractions, even hiking routes. Information on road trips, basic trip planning, family trip planning, trips to National Parks, and even safety concerns (bear spray anyone?) is available. But remember, it’s all user data. So, while it can help remove some of the guesswork from your RV trip planning, don’t forget everyone has differing opinions, so you may want to take it with a grain of salt. All in all, TripAdvisor is helpful because sometimes the hardest part of an RV trip is knowing where to go.
One reason many choose to camp is to unplug and get away. Before you take off, take a few minutes to plan your RV trip with the ever-popular, information-at-your-fingertips Google search. Here, you can find you a lot of information when planning a destination. Whether you choose to stay on public or private land, a 5-minute Google search for RV trip planning can prove quite valuable. You can check reviews of your intended destination, find the official website, research the weather or even find out more information on an area of interest like, “best campsites in northwest Ohio.” Once you find a destination and plan your trip, you can even search Google for some campfire recipes.
KOA Trip Planner
Another useful RV trip planning resource is the KOA Trip Planner. You can find lots of details with this useful tool, especially if you like visiting KOA campgrounds or are interested in giving them a try. Whether you are looking for KOA campground locations, amenities or which locations are open year-round, you’ll find it on the KOA Trip Planner.
You can also learn more about local attractions and see photos of what to expect at each KOA campground, find deals and specials, and even make your reservations through this handy online tool.
Campground Reviews by RV Life
Campground Reviews is geared specifically towards campers which helps curate the information. It is focused on information for a camping trip, as opposed to TripAdvisor’s general travel information. So, you’re less likely to get carried away clicking on tropical island destinations. If you already have a general idea of where you’d like to travel, Campground Reviews can be a quick and useful RV trip planning tool. Just pick a state or keyword search and you’re on your way to planning a great RV trip.
Also, because this site is all about camping, the user reviews are more likely to be aligned with your attitude towards campgrounds, especially when it comes to RVing. Just like you, these campers want to help the RVing and camping community find destinations worth traveling to!
