Traveling across the country in an RV can be fun and exciting, but don’t forget that even though you have the comforts of home, there are still plenty of camping activities that you can be doing. It can be tempting to spend all of your time inside the cozy vehicle, but when the weather is good, don’t resist the temptation to partake of the great outdoors.
Many RV sites offer fantastic locations for fishing. Whether you use a rod and reel, or prefer tying flies, you should be able to locate the best location for the challenge of your fishing skills. Many RV parks will be more than happy to offer their assistance in locating the right spot for you, just ask. Many locations even offer fishing tournaments with prizes and some even have equipment available for rental, if you forgot anything.
Quite a few good RV parks are also within reach of national parks and well maintained hiking trails. What better way to spend a glorious day in nature than by taking advantage of these wonderful trails. Hiking is great exercise, and, if you bring along a digital camera, you should be able to capture some exquisite memories along the way. Just remember to bring water along, keep landmarks and distance in mind, and have fun exploring.
A lot of people who camp with RVs also bring mountain bikes along. There are camping locations that border on some truly awesome biking trails, especially in the west and southwest of the United States. Plan your vacation route accordingly for some exciting and adrenaline filled rides. This is especially good for kids to do on their own, as well as with their parents. Some sites even sponsor tours and other organized activities involving biking.
Speaking of exciting pastimes, why not plan your route to include RV parks close to sites that offer white water rafting? Some RV parks will list this activity in their brochures, as well as other exciting tours and activities. Don’t want to ride on the water? Another popular group activity is rock climbing. This one combines the adrenaline rush with achieving some amazing panoramic views once you achieve your summit.
Camping in an RV does not mean you will be stuck inside the whole time you are traveling. Once you’ve found your perfect spot, get outside and explore. Look for things you can do on your own, as well as those you might want to do with your family. Fishing, hiking, nature walks, and other activities will get you outside and taking advantage of nature, while building memories that will last a lifetime. Remember to check with the park authorities for more camping activities that they might sponsor during your stay.
