With the RV ready to go and everyone primed for adventure, all that is left to do is to choose the perfect campsite for your crew. Although it might be tempting to pick the first spot you see open, it is a good idea to put a little more thought into the selection process. By taking the time to find the absolute best spot, you can ensure your travels exceed your expectations in every way. So, use this guide to narrow down the options, and then make your reservations certain you have made the right choice.
Verify it Has the Right Hookups
In order to perfectly accommodate your RV, campsites need to have power, water, and sewer hookups available. Otherwise, you could find yourself without a way to use the bathroom and kitchen to its fullest extent. You may even need to go without TV and other amenities you love in your RV. .
The hookups should not just simply exist either. They need to be located in an easily accessible area and kept in good condition. Otherwise, you might find it difficult to park your RV in the desired area and still hook up to those connections. And if they are not in good working order, all your efforts will be for naught, leaving you with no power, water, or a place to pump out waste from the tanks. .
Ask About Service Availability
Well-equipped RV campgrounds go beyond power, water, and sewer by providing Wi-Fi and cable connections to their visitors. If you want a full-service camping experience, then it is best to inquire about their service availability ahead of time. .
During the inquiries, do not simply ask if they provide the service. See if the quality is on par with your expectations. Don’t just trust the campground either. Look online to see what other campers are saying about their experience using those services. .
Find a Spot with Flat Ground
The perfect campsite for your RV should have flat, level ground that extends out in every direction. Unfortunately, not all campgrounds received this memo. So, on your search, you might find sloped and uneven spots more often than not. That does not only result in a less than ideal experience but could even put your safety at risk. .
To find the flat, level spots, ask the campground supervisors and confirm their findings by looking at any available photos online. Then, see if the grounds offer any pull through sites that make it easy to set up and take off without fiddling with the details. These pull through sites book fast, so make the reservation right then and there if everything else lines up. .
See if They Have Comfort Stations
When kept well-maintained, your RV likely has all the comfort amenities you could want. Despite your efforts, it is impossible to predict if they will stay in good working order throughout the trip. If anything goes haywire, you will want to be in a place with comfort stations open to all guests. These stations have bathrooms, showers, and more, open to everyone night and day. The better equipped grounds may even have laundry facilities onsite, which goes well beyond what many RVs can do. .
Check Out the View and Ambience
With all that squared away, you can start looking beyond creature comforts to find amazing views and a relaxed ambience. When you choose the perfect RV campsite, you can take in the view of breathtaking landscapes and waterways all around. Without taking this into account, you could end up staring at ugly buildings, busy roads, and other undesirable sights. .
The ambience matters, too, depending on what you want out of your travels. If you want a serene experience deep in the heart of the woodlands, then a campground known for loud parties and big trucks is not a great choice. On the other hand, if you want to meet new friends by the boatload, then it might prove better than you ever hoped. .
By looking into online reviews and chatting with the campground owners, you can find out if the available views and overall ambience is what you expect. Only then can you make your reservations, confident that the campground offers all you want from your travels. .
Whether you plan to watch wildlife at Jasper National Park or explore the waterways around Campers Cove, finding the best RV spot will serve you well. So, start checking out the options while using this guide to narrow down the list. With that done, you can select your favourite spots and secure reservations to make your travel dreams a reality. .
