There are many great national parks to visit in an RV, but the best one for you will depend on your interests, the type of RV and the type of experience you’re looking for. Here are a few of the most popular options. My husband and I have visited all of the ones below and loved each one, all for different reasons.
RV size matters
While most of the national parks have campgrounds that accommodate RVs, there are various size restrictions, so before you book, make sure to read the size restrictions carefully. If your RV is over the size limit, you may be turned away or, even worse, find that you cannot make the tight turns necessary to get to the campground and have nowhere to turn around. (I had that experience once…)
National parks are popular and usually have large crowds. Book campsites early. There are usually a number of campgrounds available just outside the national parks that can also accommodate RVs.
