You’re planning your RV trip for next weekend. You’re excited to hit the open road with your family, but you haven’t given too much thought to where you’re camping. Obviously, you know your destination. But, you aren’t sure how far you want to drive on the first day, and whether you want to make some stops along the way. You’re planning on just Googling the nearest campground when you feel the time is right to set up camp for the night.
If you’re thinking that all campgrounds are the same, think again. Every campground has its own set of rules and regulations, as well as different amenities. If you aren’t looking for full hookups, you can be less picky about what campground you choose for your stay. But if you’re looking for a stay complete with power, water and WiFi, there are several things you should look for before making your decision.
Check out how many powered campgrounds there are at the site you want to stay. You’ll find some campgrounds have a limited number of powered spaces. If that is the case, it is always a good idea to call the campground ahead of time and see how many spaces are available that night. When you dock your RV at the campground and plug into the campsites “shore power,” it’s a good idea to keep a power plug adapter handy. These adapters will convert the power for you if your RV requires a different amp plug than the outlet available at your campsite. Before you plug anything in, make sure the breaker is turned off.
