Camping beyond the city lights is always a good way to relax, unwind and get back to nature. But have you ever thought of taking along the RV when you visit big cities? Once you compare the expense of hotels, restaurant meals and rental cars to the convenience and affordability of RV camping, urban RV campgrounds become an attractive alternative.
But where can you camp that makes sense when visiting larger cities? We’re glad you asked, because we’ve put together our list of four favorite urban RV campgrounds that keep you close to the action. Keep in mind, we’re not talking about stealth boondocking on city streets. These are places where camping can be comfortable and affordable while putting you within easy reach of big city attractions.
Urban camping ideas for RVers
- Greenbelt Park, twelve miles north of the Washington DC metro area in suburban Maryland, is an affordable, comfortable alternative to pricey DC-area hotels. You won’t find electric and water hookups in the one hundred seventy-four wooded campsites, but you will find hot showers, flush toilets, potable water, and a dump station. Your self-contained RV does the rest! You’ll also be a mile and a half from a DC Metro station, making it easy to access all DC-area attractions. Consider camping at this NPS-operated campground next time you visit our nation’s capital!
