What’s most important to you in choosing an RV park based on the choices below? Do you prefer reliable WiFi over a swimming pool? Is the space between your RV and your neighbor’s critical? Or is not having a good selection of TV stations on the cable TV a deal breaker?
Make one, two or three choices below. Let’s see what matters to the readers of RV Travel readers. This should be interesting!

I travel in a 25′ Class C without a towed car. So I voted for clean showers/restrooms, fast wifi, and “other” – for me, that means LEVEL SITES!!! I will gladly forgo a spacious site with barbecue, fire ring and landscaping if I can have one where I don’t have to spend a sweaty hour at the end of a long drive, back-and-forthing over various configurations of leveling blocks. And for a stay of several days or a week (or more), the level site means I can come and go more quickly and easily for shopping, sightseeing, etc.
I’m an urban camper, and really appreciate easy access to public transportation.
Level sites and privacy trees or hedges with space between. One site the neighbor had pullouts so. If and into our site so we could barely get out of our RV. Another site awning hit our RV. And high prices annoy us as we are packed in and no amenities.
I’m just hoping for gas/diesel to rise by at least $2 per gallon, CG fees to double or triple, and interest rates on RVs to hit double digits!
We have a motor home class c and somewhat level sites are important.
with 10K people a day in the U.S. turning 65 and that number happening for the next 12-14 years things are going to get worst instead of better. estimated rv sales in 2018 is around 600K. a lot of these people are new to rv’ing and have a lot to learn. commercial campgrounds are not where we stay for several reasons. we are not interested in the pool, hot tub, shuffleboard etc. we want a safe place to spend the nite, dump and fill the next day and leave. why do campgrounds not have a area with a reasonable price to do this? that is why we never stay in these places. we love blm, national parks, some state parks, harvest host, county parks. the large number of people on the road is going to make it harder to be a free bird. i am also amazed how many people never come out of their rolling condos while in camp.
I agree 100% !
Having a few ed fog park so our traveling dog can get out and exercise.
Depends if it is overnight or long term.
For Overnight low cost like Passport Americs,, wide sites, no low tree branches easy access into and out of the site and close to the freeway. Also no rocks or timbers outlining the fpdriveways or roadway.
Long term same as above just add a lbody if water, well kept green grass around my site and dpcsmpground with flowers and no long term RV’s And no park models!
A reasonably level area to park; some shade with enough sun for our solar; few to none big RV units; few to none dogs in sight or sound; someplace to replenish fresh water tank; someplace to empty tanks. 30 amp electric is nice but just frosting on the cake as are clean latrines and/or shower house with hot water.
Level site and good utility hook-ups.
No barking dogs and keep your music and TV noise to yourself.
Level is a must
Its unpleasant to pull in, set up and then the neighbors have TV, satellite, etc. I stick to radio the old fashion way. Also, those folks that arrive after dark and set up. Wish that occurred less often.
Level sites are always a good thing, with other RV’ers not so close, etc. Lower noise after dark, sitting around the campfire singing songs and telling funny stories is always a good time. No druggies, no drinkers, no bad attitudes, and happy thoughts everywhere.
Dark is relative…. it’s dark at 4p in winter!
But to your likely-intended point, quiet hours should be just that –quiet. And should be 10p-8a, IMO.., so everyone has opportunity to settle down and get 8 hours of sleep.
Camps rarely let people in after 8-9p, in my experience. We’ve been here a few days…Last night there was an influx between 7-10p. Lots of noise til 10:30 but that’s still outside of park quiet hours of 11-7. Hard for those who have a normal bedtime around 10, though…
I almost never stay at a campground. Boondocking is the best way to go.
For OTHER I would like Friendly/ Helpful Owners and or friendly workers…I have stayed @ RV parks that were not very friendly….I wondered how they stayed in business…..
30 Amp or more electric, a shot at the 110 and 119 satellites, and a level pad, plus room to stretch out, are all it takes to keep me happy. Nice extras are a 60 foot pull through, water and electric, and QUIET.
Supply & demand
Only stay in State Camp Grounds with good ocean views
LEVEL SITE, PREFERABLY WITH A PAD
Ease of getting into site and set up.
Clear view for the satellite! Maybe the most important.
We agree! The availability of satellite friendly sites are important to us as well
Clear view to the southwest sky for satellite connection
