If you’re planning a RV adventure on the eastern seaboard, consider staying at one of these four popular Northeast and Southeast RV resorts for your next getaway.
Winterharbor, Maine: MainStay Cottages & RV Park
This coastal destination in Maine offers waterfront RV campsites near the fishing village that is called Winter Harbor. This popular getaway is in the “Schoodic section” of Acadia National Park, which offers wooded hiking trails and access to Maine’s rocky shores. Closed during Maine’s harsh winter months, the RV park welcomes visitors from mid-May through mid-October. Here’s why it’s so awesome.
Get back to nature and basics within this friendly, quiet and hardworking village. Visit the five and dime store and gift shops along with art galleries and antique shopping. Of course, being a traditional fishing village means there is plenty of fresh seafood available daily at the local dining establishments. Ranging from upscale to casual, there are plenty of unique fish, shrimp and lobster meals on the menu.
There is a variety of public access to all the different landscapes, mountains and lakes. A short drive will lead to Fort Knox, Mount Desert Island in Acadia National Park, and President Roosevelt’s summer home. Mainstay is an incredible Northeast RV resort destination for a fun New England getaway.
Horseneck Beach State Reservation Campground
wim and camp at one of the most popular beaches in Massachusetts. Located at the western end of Buzzard’s Bay, the 2-mile long beach is also great for bird watching.
Camp under the stars on the beach! It’s dry camping but you won’t mind because it’s so gorgeous. One RVer review says “The beach is mostly rounded stone, with limited gray sand. When we visited the surf was high due to a recent hurricane. Expect a strong breeze most days, no shade, and if you are in one of the waterfront sites you may get salt spray at your site.”
At $70 a night for non-residents of Massachusetts, it’s pricey for dry camping. But RVers agree that this unforgettable East Coast beach camping experience is worth the nightly rate.
Jacksonville, Florida: Pecan Park RV Resort
In the Northeast corner of the state of Florida, Jacksonville is a major hub of activities and events. Within the Pecan Park area, this East Coast RV park supplies something for everyone. Whether spending some down time fishing their fully stocked pond, taking a swim in their fenced-off pool or tossing horseshoes, Pecan Park RV Resort offers all this and more.
Surrounding the Pecan Park resort is a large flea market, zoo and lots of dining and shopping choices.
Venture into a neighboring section of Jacksonville, River City, for plenty of shopping and dining options. Head down into the downtown/south Jax area for plenty of beaches, art museums and a variety of parks.
Key West, Florida: Leo’s Campground
At the southern most part of the East Coast is this Key West RV park. Water activity aside, this Florida RV park offers year-round rental dates, offers free WIFI in various spots throughout the park as well as a laundry room. Pets are allowed, but dogs must be under 30 pounds and will add $1 a night to each stay. Kids 12 and under stay free. There are so many activities and sights to see within Key West that it’s safe to assume most of your days will be spent exploring the islands and mainland.
Nearby, Everglades National Park covers most of the mainland, with plenty of hiking and bird watching opportunities.
