Part of RV traveling means stopping along the way to set up camp at a park just for RVs. And an important element of any park is comfort and convenience.

Choosing the right RV to make the trip with you is also an important factor in how smoothly your vacation plans flow. At Capital RV Center, we know a thing or two about matching customers with the RV of their dreams.

Once you’ve made your RV selection, there’s a list of things to consider when choosing a park to enhance your travel adventures.

Checklist

This short list is a good place to start in finding the park for you.

  • If you’re visiting a park for the first time, do your research regarding seasonal rates and availability.
  • Location is vital. You’ll want to be near to shopping, dining, fuel, and local attractions.
  • Find out what types of businesses surround the park. For example, be sure the park isn’t across the street from a garbage dump or sewage facility.
  • You’ll need water, electric and sewer hookups. Check with the park of choice regarding what they offer in terms of power ampage to accommodate your RV.
  • Is the site easily accessible and is it large enough for your RV especially if you have multiple slide outs.
  • Sites can be equipped with several items such as a picnic table, grill or fire pit while others may have only one or two of these amenities. Additional features may include WiFi access and cable hookups.
  • Does the park offer pull-through and back-in sites and is there additional room for more than one car or truck.
  • Does the park have an onsite store for supplies such as wood for fire pits.
  • If you plan to bring your pet, know what the pet policy is in terms of deposits, leash regulations, specific dog walking areas, etc.
  • Many parks and resorts have a variety of amenities including a pool, fitness and recreation center, hot tub, shuffleboard, horseshoes, canoe, kayak and bicycle rental. Some offer shuttle service to town as well as planned cookouts, events and activities.
