Long Term RV Parks: 4 Things to Remember
RV campers do have to settle down even for a little while. If you’ve been tirelessly traveling for weeks or months, you’ll eventually want to stop, be intimate with a place, and enjoy the moment. Although finding suitable long-term RV parks can be a bit challenging, staying in campgrounds for a long time is often more practical and beneficial than constantly hopping from one place to another.
Here are a few things to keep in mind if you want to spend some time in an RV park:
Campgrounds are everywhere.
Because you will find campgrounds anywhere in the country, the first thing you have to remember when choosing among RV sites for long-term camping is your preference. Where do you really want to live for a month? Do you want to spend some time in the countryside or spend warm nights in a suburb? You also want to take into account your hobbies and pastimes. It doesn’t make sense to choose a RV camp in the city when you want to go fishing or hiking.
The location matters a lot in other ways. For instance, if you want ease of access to schools or supermarkets, you probably don’t want to choose spots too far away from the city. Keep in mind that laundromats, gas stations, stores, churches, banks, and gyms are in towns and cities as well. If you need access to these places, camping your RV in the wilderness is not a great idea. Some campers also choose locations based on the neighborhood, which is natural for people who want to feel at home in their new community right away.
Of course, long-term campers should consider long-term RV parks. Note that some campgrounds aren’t suitable for long-term occupancy. You usually find these parks in residential areas.
Reserving a space beforehand spares you from headaches down the road.
Although many parks offer reservations, some don’t. First come, first served type of RV sites can get filled easily in summer, which means you will have to look somewhere else if you miss the site opening. Nonetheless, you’re better off booking a space early on than looking around for a vacant spot during camping season.
Most parks and campgrounds offer reservations online or over the phone. Just like hotel reservations, you will need to pay a deposit upfront. Don’t forget to confirm your reservation a few days before you travel to the site. Make sure to check the area is all right and no unpleasant surprises are waiting for you.
Long-term RV parks may offer only utilities.
Note that some parks don’t give you access to electricity or water, and that can make living inconvenient. But if parks offer utilities, these are usually just what they would have to offer. That means you need to bring the following:
RVing is a cross between being at home and camping. It’s not as restrictive as camping, wherein you can only bring a few things. Your vehicle allows you to bring more things, such as kitchenware. You can bring your favorite cookware and silverware, so you won’t have to resort to plastic cups and paper plates and worry about trash. Nonetheless, make sure your RV park has designated areas for waste disposal.
Believe it or not, you can doze off comfortably in your camper just as you do in your own bedroom. There are beds and bedding designed for vans, trailers, and tiny houses. You can add lights or curtains to customize your sleeping quarter to your own liking.
When you settle down in a place for a few weeks, you most likely want to spend time outside your van. Unless you want to sit on the grass or pavement all day long, you should invest in an outdoor setup. Most long-term RV parks allow campers to install lights and campfires, but foldable chairs and tables are indispensable. Moreover, picnic sets and portable grills wouldn’t disappoint.
The weather matters!
Different areas have different climates. Some places have rainy winters. Others experience harsh weather during spring or summer. It’s important that you check the climate of the place and take a look at common weather patterns during the months you’re planning to camp in the area.
You certainly won’t enjoy RV living in the countryside in winter where snow tends to pile a few meters high. RV campers who want to escape the winter cold usually drive south to get more warmth and sunshine. That’s why long-term RV parks are popular in the southern states, like Florida, Texas, and California. You will find a lot of full time RVers in these states in winter. RV parks in these areas get filled up quickly, so again consider reserving a space ahead of time.
When you are planning to go to a camping site, either with your friends or alone, you need a good plan that can let you enjoy during the trip and bring you back home safe. Everyone starts camping somewhere and slowly start building their experience to be able to camp at the most exotic and adventurous places. If you are planning your first-ever camp, these tips will come handy and avoiding common mistakes and having a better time.
Know your gear
Use a guide book to know what gears you need for camping and learn about each gear, so you do not have to struggle with them at the campground. Practice pitching your tent in the backyard. Learn to use stoves and try to sleep in a sleeping back for a night. The more comfortable you are with gear, the easier and fun camping will be.
Create an itinerary
No matter what adventure or travel you choose, you always need an itinerary plan. Make a list for things that you will need during your camp, including enough food, prescribed medicines, tools, and other things that you do not want to forget. This list will also help you pack your things when you are done camping, so you do not leave anything behind.
If you have plans to visit a crowded campground, it is important that you arrive early. It will help you find the best spot at the site before anyone else occupies it. It will also give youe enough time to learn about the campsite and the amenities available there. Set up a camp early so you can enjoy maximum time with others later on.
Plan your meals
Meals at camping are similar to having a picnic in the garden. Only in this case, the choice of foods will be different. Take the help of camping menus to go shopping for the things that you will need to cook your food at the camp. Do not rely on snacks completely, and to plan a meal that you can enjoy cooking and eating at the camp.
Learn the campground rules
If you are visiting a campsite, chances are there will be a list of certain rules that you should know about. Since it usually depends on the campers to help each other out and keep the night enjoyable, It is important that you do not interrupt other’s plans and respect their privacy if they do not want to hand out with up. Do not block any camper with your tents and be a smart camper who knows all the campground rules.
Know when to pack up
While a little drizzle is fun when you are camping, setting up a tent in heavy rain is nothing less than a messy disaster. Check the weather in advance and know that you can spend the whole day or week chilling without having to worry about packing up. However, if the conditions demand packing up, you pack up. If you cannot enjoy your camp, there is no point in forcing yourself to stick around.
