Now that you have your RV, where do you stay? While you can visit the state and national parks and stay quietly, unless your neighbor’s generator is running, choosing an RV park or resort is a good way to go because they have full hookups. State and national parks usually only offer dry camping. You can search the web for places. You can use reference books, or the Camp California guide. There are three ways to find a park: by the city where a park is located, by the park name, or by the general section of the state you’d like to visit. Most parks offer online reservations, which helps when you’re on the road. If you are traveling in a large rig, be sure to request a pull-through. Review the amenities the park offers. Do you wish to unwind in the hot tub after a long day on the road? Is your idea of relaxing a five mile hike? Perhaps you want your children to splash in the pool and relieve some of their pent-up energy. During the season, I usually plan ahead, but during the off season I like to decide where to stay while I’m on the road. Maybe I like the sense of the unknown. We always take our dog so I make sure the park is dog friendly. There’s a wide world out there to explore. Have fun!
