RV Parks - All The Comforts Away From Home
RV parks and campgrounds are easy to find and provide all the amenities any RVer could want. Full hookups include water, RV waste dump, electricity, cable TV, phone, and even WiFi are available at many locations.
The USA RV Camping Map will take you to each state's individual privately owned RV parks page.
Many RV parks and campgrounds have laundry facilities, electric only RV camping sites, dump stations, recreation rooms, and play areas for children and adults. Pets are restricted in some parks, as well as vehicle type and even age in some of the nicest RV resorts. Rates vary from as little as $5 a night to over $50. You should expect to average between $20 and $30 per night in a private RV park or campground. Discount RV camping clubs can help cut nightly expenses, and vehicle specific RV clubs can be great for family and group RV travel.
RV parks can be affiliated with large nationwide organizations, and these organizations have well designed web sites that can help you locate their member RV parks. Some of these organizations offer discounted prices by becoming a member, while others offer location maps.
Our Discount Camping section has information about groups of affiliated campgrounds that offer discounts in exchange for membership. There are some good deals to found, but you have to be careful to find the discount group right for you to get the maximum benefit of membership.

There are two excellent RV park and campground directories published to locate privately owned RV parks and campgrounds. Woodall's and Trailer Life RV Camping Directories have thousands of private RV parks and campgrounds listed in every state. The listings include price, camp site size, and information about RV park/campground facilities. RV camping restrictions will be listed, maps and driving directions, and information about pets and any additional important information.
RV parks and campgrounds are inspected regularly so that directory listings can be kept accurate, and to ensure that what you find is what is listed. These directories are the best way to locate an RV park or campground when you're on the road. You can usually call to check availability shortly before arrival. Reservations can be made well in advance too.
A Clickable Campground Map is an online resource available. This map uses Google maps with an overlay of campgrounds throughout the USA. Currently there are 11,000 public and private campgrounds listed. Directions about using the map are included.
You can find most RV parks and campgrounds on the Internet if you have patience. Woodall's has their RV campground listings available on line. If you search on the Internet for "RV parks" by city and state, you will get listings for many RV parks close to the town you wish. Be aware that many RV parks and campgrounds do not have Internet web pages.
