How to Choose an RV Park


You've planned out all the details of your upcoming RV trip, but now it's time to figure out where you'll be parking your RV when you arrive. There are all kinds of RV parks all across the U.S., so finding the one that's right for your needs takes a little more research than you would expect. What should you take into account when choosing an RV park? What are you going to need? Reliable RV has you covered.


You'll need to find an RV park that can accommodate the size of your RV. In addition to your vehicle, look into how much space is provided at your specific site. If you're going to be spending a lot of time at the park, you'll want to make sure there's enough space where you can sit outside, cook a meal, etc. Many RV parks will have additional playgrounds and common areas where you and your family can spend time.

Pet Friendly

If you're traveling with your furry friends in tow, keep in mind that not all RV parks allow pets. If pets are allowed, there may be certain breeds or sizes of pets that are permitted, or you may also have to pay extra if you're bringing a pet along. Plan on having supplies that allow you to pick up their waste, and remember to dispose of it properly. A leash is typically required.


The amenities that are provided at each park will vary quite a bit. Make a list of what you need and then what you could deal without. Some parks offer cable television if you don't travel with a satellite dish. WiFi is pretty necessary these days, laundry facilities allow you to periodically clean your clothing and bedding, and a heated pool can be beneficial depending on the time of year you're traveling.


Be realistic about what you can spend on the RV park portion of your trip. Keep in mind, you can probably save some money by choosing something cheaper, but you might not be as comfortable as you could be with something better. Compare a few different options before making a final decision.

The decision regarding where to park your RV can involve a lot of details. You should consider how long you plan on staying, what season you're going to be traveling in, and what type of setting you want to be in.
