This family vacation is not for the faint of heart! If you have younger children you will need a lot of energy to keep up with them here. But, if you are a person who enjoys theme parks as well, some RV destinations make for an unforgettable family experience.
Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park
Here parent and child can bond over a character that has made it across multiple generations. These are great parks for kids and adults alike. They combine nature and the outdoors with the theme of Yogi bear and his friend Boo Boo.
These parks include awesome activities for you and your kids ranging from waterparks to wagon rides.
The Jellystone parks have many locations, mainly in the Midwest, South, and East of the United States. However, parks are stretching to California.
No list would be complete that involved kids and travel without the world-famous Disney. With locations both in California and Florida, you can take your pick on which park you’d like to check out.
The parks both have campgrounds that are kid- and RV-friendly. The great thing about doing Disney this way is that it offers more than just the theme parks.
The RV campgrounds in Florida, for example, are fully equipped with hookups for your vehicle and activities for you and the kids. The RV parks are well-connected to the theme parks in both locations, making for a great experience.
The United States is a pretty big place, and it has a lot of amazing natural scenery to offer.
If you and your family aren’t the getaways to a theme park type, a National Park vacation may be more up your alley. There are plenty of great options for RV destinations, coast to coast, that children and adults alike can enjoy.
Grand Canyon National Park
The Grand Canyon is an awe-inspiring wonder that impresses even the best traveled of us out there. Once you’ve gotten over the immense natural beauty, you and your kids can take one of the tours offered by park rangers to spot some wildlife and learn a little bit about the area.
If you have kids older than 7 years old you can descend the canyon and check out the natural beauty below. If you have very young children, there are many great things to see along the north and south rims.
Yosemite National Park
A stark contrast to the deserts of Arizona, Yosemite will provide a lush green background for this trip with your family. Interesting rock formations and gigantic Sequoias are scattered throughout the park.
There is also an abundance of wildlife that your children will love. In terms of activities, the park offers many great hikes, tours, and bike trails to enjoy.
Everglades National Park
Head out east and take in the natural beauty of one of the most visited states in the Union, Florida. Although many have made the trek down to South Florida, the natural beauty here is as pristine as ever.
The wildlife in the Everglades is as abundant as the activities offered. Your kids will love seeing the array of birds, fish, and gators in their natural habitat. You also have the opportunity to canoe, swim, or fish all over the place, although hopefully not in gator infested water!
Once you get your fill of the Everglades, you might as well head over to one of the beautiful beaches in the Sunshine State. And, while you’re at it, check out the other beautiful beaches below!
Camp Gulf Park
Camp Gulf offers amazing waterfront campgrounds in the northern part of Florida. If you’re looking for a beach getaway in your RV, this is the place to do it on the East Coast. The beach is full of beautiful white sand for you and your family to enjoy. After your getaway to Disney, you may need to extend your vacation for a few days at Camp Gulf!
Sonoma Coast State Park
If you’re more of a West Coast traveler, check out this State Park in northern California that will provide a great experience for everyone. There are multiple beachfront campgrounds here to choose from.
One of the sites, Bodega Dunes, offers campsites a stone’s throw away from the water, as well as hot showers and flushing toilets. The water can get a bit chilly, but the scenery will be fantastic.
Hunting Island State Park
Heading back to the East Coast, this gem in South Carolina is sure to be an unforgettable holiday destination. To add to the beauty of this campsite, it is located on an island right off the coast of the state.
The small island is abundant with flora and fauna. While on the island, you can hike, fish, or just take some time to relax. The park is also home to a great boardwalk that you and the family can explore to catch a great sunset over the Atlantic. The park is fully equipped for RVs up to 40 feet long.
