One of the biggest and best advantages of owning an RV is that sightseeing takes on a whole level of adventure. The ability to pull up stakes and go wherever the road takes you is your way of life, and the rules that you govern you are of your own creation. There’s a lot of road to cover and many places to travel to, and if you’ve ever wanted to take your RV to see some of the country’s national parks, we’ve made a bucket list with you in mind.
Yellowstone is one of the most popular and well-known national parks. And luckily for you, owning an RV means you can visit when there’s snow on the ground and others are preoccupied with staying indoors. A great deal of the park can’t be accessed in winter, but Mammoth Hot Springs and Lamar Valley can be reached via the north entrance. Mammoth campground is accessible all year long, and in your RV, you’ll have the adventure to remember.
There are three RV-friendly campgrounds located at the Grand Canyon. (Trailer Village, Mather Campground, and Dessert View) Phantom Ranch provides you an experience that you won’t forget anytime soon, but space fills up quickly. You’ll need to call ahead 13 months in advance for a trip that will last a lifetime.
If you’re an adventurer who appreciates high altitude and stunning natural wonder, then we suggest traveling on trail ridge road. The highest paved road in the United States takes you upwards of over 12,000 feet and contains scenery that only the brave can behold. You’ll also be able to get the full pioneer experience by crossing the continental divide.
Olympic National Park is recommended for those who want to experience the grandeur and natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest. Not only will you get a chance to experience wonder, but the park contains several ecosystems. This means that your kids will get a first-rate science lesson!
As national parks are concerned, Yosemite is just about as well-known as Yellowstone. Visiting the width and wonder of Yosemite will provide you with breath-taking scenery that can be explored in and outside of your RV. Be sure to call in advance, spots for RVs fill up quickly. If you manage to get space reserved, we recommend Half Dome, one of the park’s most iconic locations.
