Trying to decide if camping is right for you and your family?
Here are some great reasons to get started!
Escape your Everyday Life
Owning an RV can introduce you to a whole new world of adventures. Even if you only travel a few miles from your home, you can escape the stress and worries of home and work. An RV allows you to spend more time with your family. Whether you go for hike, a bike ride or sit around the camp fire you will make memories that will last a lifetime.
See New Sights
Your RV gives you the ability to explore the country. You can travel almost anywhere you want to go, and the adventures are just outside of your door. You can visit the same place many times, or visit somewhere new on every trip, it’s up to you.
Some state and national parks have rates under $30 per night. Even if you could find a hotel for that rate you probably wouldn’t want to stay there. State and national park campgrounds usually provide the lowest cost. The down side is that they might only have primitive or electric only sites. RV Resorts provide luxuries like water, electric and sewer sites. Other amenities include swimming pools, putt-putt golf courses and even water parks, but you will pay more for your stay.
