Plan a travel trailer trip to one of America’s natural National Parks. There are plenty of options of parks for you to choose from. All will offer different activities, sites, and amenities to match your travel trailer and fifth wheel needs. So whether you choose to visit the Grand Canyon with your travel trailer or another park, you will have a well-worth it excursion.
What should you look for in selecting a National Park as a travel trailer destination?
Before selecting the RV park that you want to take your travel trailer to, assess the distance that you want to cross. Begin with your point of origin and make sure your budget can cover the costs to get you and your travel trailer to and from your destination. There are options for you to choose from throughout the United States. You should even check to see if there are discounts available for visiting more than one park within certain distances from one another.
Spend some time researching the numerous National Parks that exist in your travel trailer trip range. There is the infamous Grand Canyon or Rocky Mountain Nation Park. You may wish to take your travel trailer beachside to Canaveral National Seashore or Biscayne National Park, or you may select a park that has historic relevance, such as the Independence National Historic Park.
What National Parks are located nearby?
There are several ways to discover what parks are located near your point of origin. The best website and resource is the U.S. National Park Service. You can find a park by entering your state or search parks by attractions. Other tools or resources to find parks are online, book stores, or local library. If you are a member of an RV club with your travel trailer or a member of the American Automobile Association, check there, too.
Try camping in the park in your travel trailer
Many parks offer tent and RV camping areas. Some have hook up options, while others do not. Take a look online to make sure the campground or park that you select has camping options to suit your travel needs. You may have to reserve a spot, so it is wise to spend time online or call the park service directly for more information.
Begin planning your RV trip ASAP
When planning a national park vacation, spend ample time preparing for your trip. Learn the history of the park, its amenities, and the anticipated travel time. By doing this, you will have time to enjoy the entire RVing experience!
