We know that the answer to this question, would you rather an RV park have a swimming pool or a hot tub, depends greatly on the weather and temperature outside… but there’s gotta be one that you generally prefer more than the other, right?
Perhaps on a hot summer day you love jumping into a cool, refreshing pool. Or maybe you prefer to pour a glass of wine at night and step into a warm hot tub just as the temperatures outside start to cool. Which is it?
We only boondock, so no pool nor hot tub.
We prefer a park that has neither. Their daily rates are usually significantly lower.
For the last week my surveys are not showing up. What gives or am I missing something.
Sorry, Doc. Here’s a possible explanation from Jessica, one of our techy people (since I know zilch about this stuff 🙄 ): “Sometimes script blockers and ad blockers interfere with our polls since they are from a 3rd party site. If you have one of these, try and turn it off and see if that fixes the issue.” I hope that works for you. Have a great day. 😀 –Diane at RVtravel.com
If they have a hot tub, they probably have a pool as well. I voted pool so I can get my laps in, but since we don’t really stay anywhere very long (and mostly at state parks) I doubt I’d get a chance to use them.
Pool OK if available at adult parks.
Hot tub…. way too sketchy on the ppm of skin cells, hair, fecal matter, urine, etc. That’s just me tho.
And cue the pool haters….lots of grumpy comments to choose from. Swimming is one of life’s delights, and it’s good for you, but let’s grumble because there are people who like it.
Of course there’s nothing wrong with installing many thousands of boat ramps all over the country at great public expense, that only fishermen with trailers and boats can use. And let’s add lots of no-swimming sign just for good measure, so drunk boaters don’t have to watch where they’re going.
Seldom use either, but prefer a pool.
While we don’t use a pool, if we are visiting with grandchildren a pool is nice, as long as all are enjoying the water and not being rambunctious.
I actually only book resorts that have both, as well as Pickleball courts!
I would have actually preferred neither. Give me the good ol’ outdoors to look at!
thank you…my thoughts also. Camping w/o hook ups only. If I want a resort, I will book a resort
I love a good swim, especially during those hot months. Refreshing and always a good time, hanging by the pool after a long day of off roading or fishing, hiking etc. safe travels!
I spent many years maintaining swimming pools private and public, I will not use ANY public pool and never use a hot tub unless it’s been drained, sanitized and refilled for my use.
I agree the hot water temperature is the perfect environment for all kinds of bacteria to grow. If you have any breaks in your skin you could be in trouble.
We loved the water aerobics in the pool at our winter park.
None. I find none and there are less children running around at camp grounds. I’ve heard parents comment they’re not coming back because there is no pool for the kids. It’s camping after all.
Skipper > Some might say you are a grumpy Old Man!! While I’m probably with you in being an Old Man but like seeing Kid’s having a good time!! Reminds me I was Young once!!
I guess I have always loved the peace and beauty of a small forest campground. No hookups just a fire pit to cook with my cast iron camp pot. I usually get asked what I am cooking that smells so good. I look for camp grounds with 30 or under camp sites.
A swimming pool can accept more users at the same time, adults & children.
Most Hot Tubs are small and can only handle a couple people at the same time.
Also, children are not suppose to go into Hot Tubs, even though I have seen plenty
of parents allow their children to jump into a hot tub.
I chose neither. However, if I had to choose I would choose the hot tub….NO KIDS ALLOWED!
DW wants the hot tub, I don’t care, I had never been in a hot tub until we married 7 years ago. I’ll be 80 next month.
As the saying goes: Never eat the yellow snow or swim in green swimming pools.
All I want is space and at least 30 amp power.
