Planning an RV camping excursion can be overwhelming when it comes to finding the perfect campground.

Usually, when you decide to plan a camping trip you’re doing so to enjoy some recreational activities. You’ll want to find a campsite that provides the type of relaxation or fun that you have in mind. Many campsites offer a pool, planned activities, sports court, recreation room, and playground if you’re traveling with little ones. Amenities are also very important when choosing your campground. Certain grounds will have mail services, laundry facilities, and bathhouses to help make you feel comfortable and secure.

Campsite Qualities

The qualities of the campground itself should be taken into consideration before making your final choice. Everyone will have a different preference when it comes to their expectations of the grounds. Size and space are important because you’ll want to make sure your rig can fit comfortably. Shade is another factor that some may forget about. You’ll want your RV to have some type of shade without tree branches making scratches. A campground with hookups is a great benefit so you won’t have to worry about your electric, water, or sewer needs.


Another big decision to make when it comes to finding your perfect campground is its location. If you’re a water person and want swimming to be a part of your trip, you’ll want to make sure the ground is near a body of water. Researching the area around the campsite is also a good idea to see if there are any attractions nearby that you’ll want to visit. This will also let you know if the campsite is near a highway which will create traffic and city noise distractions. Grocery stores are also important to have in the area for any emergency needs.


The budget should be discussed before choosing a campsite since prices can vary. RV campgrounds can cost as little as $10 a night while some can range up to $100 or more. If you’re on a budget you wouldn’t want to arrive at a costly campground without planning. Certain apps including The Dyrt or Campspot can cut your amount of research time down and help you find exactly what you’re looking for when it comes to price and other qualities.
