RVing and Camping for Families
Tent and RV camping are the hottest forms of family travel in America these days. A camping trip solves so many problems:
It’s affordable. The cost of an RV campsite is much less than the cost of an average hotel room. In an RV, you even have the option of “boondocking” — parking overnight in a Walmart parking lot or another free option.
It’s clean. You carry your “hotel” right with you. No worries about whether it’s been properly disinfected, no one comes in and out daily to make the beds and no one else has touched the door handles.
It’s healthy. The kids are playing outside in the fresh air. You’re making healthy meals over the campfire.
RV parks operate much like hotels. The difference: you’re renting an RV site, not a room. But the site comes with recreation areas, game rooms, swimming pools, wifi and activities, usually all included in the nightly price. Just check-in at the RV resort, back in to your spot, attach the sewer hook up and send the kids off to play while you make dinner to serve on the nearby picnic tables.
Best of all, there’s a recreational vehicles right for just about every family, from small van campers to pop-up campers to huge luxurious RVs with full kitchens and master bedrooms.

RVers swear by the easy access to nature and the family friendliness of RVing.
For a closer-to-nature camping experience, try tent camping. You can stay in the same campgrounds used by recreational vehicles, or you can go back country and look for a more rustic camping spot in a state park or national park.
We particularly like the camping options at Yosemite National Park, but there are equally beautiful spots in around America and throughout Canada.
Where to Find the Best RV Camping
There are gorgeous natural wonders across the United States, from Florida to California, Oregon to South Carolina, Maine to Texas. Some campgrounds offer outdoor adventures such as horseback riding while others have sandy beach access to fresh water lakes perfect for swimming on a hot summer day.
