Tips for how to Select a Campsite

After a long day of driving or towing your motorhome or fifth wheel, it’s nice to find your camp site and settle in for the night, and hopefully a few days after that.

Make sure you check out all of the available camp sites before you pick your favorite. Here are some tips for making sure you find the best one!

-Where is the TV signal? If having satellite TV is important to you, then find an unobstructed view of the southern sky. But the tradeoff of no trees may mean no shade.

-Is there enough space? You want a site big enough for your tow vehicle and RV. Also consider the width of the site – for instance, when your RV is sitting level, will the picnic table fit or will it be sitting on a slope that renders it pretty useless?

-Are the restrooms nearby? Some people want to be near the restrooms and/or showers. Others may want to be far away. If it makes a difference to you, take a look around.

-Where is the sun? You may want to avoid a site where the sun will be beating down on your patio area, just when you want to be out enjoying the late afternoon and evening. On the other hand, you might want to take advantage of a spectacular sunset view, if you have an awning.

-make sure that the site you select is one that you can pull into and out of also. This applies to motorhomes mostly. The best type of site is a pull through site for motorhomes or long trailers.[Your RV Lifestyle]

This will not come naturally to you if you are new to RVing or you do not get to go camping very often in your RV. However, the more you go camping, the more natural this process of site selection will become. Soon you will be able to select a camp site with no problems or lengthy consideration at all.
