How to Find an RV Camp


Join an RV travel club such as Good Sam. Use the travel club's directory of approved RV camping areas and resorts. Benefits of joining such clubs are reduced rates for the RV camps in their directory. Good Sam has a website for finding RV camps that is open to members and nonmembers as well.


Use a GPS with Points of Interest programmed into the RV. When selecting a GPS unit, look for map listings that include find features like gas stations and campgrounds. Additionally, many GPS units list Kampgrounds of America sites. KOA offers RV travelers the option to join their Klub Kard. This gives reduced rates at participating KOA campgrounds.


Press the find campground option on the GPS when traveling and on the road. Select an appropriate campground and wait for directions from the GPS unit based on your current location.


Purchase a road atlas from a travel club such as AAA or Good Sam. These atlases list campgrounds. Select a campground for the region you are traveling.

RV camping allows you to haul your gear, clothing and sundries in a self-contained unit. RTVs typically have bathrooms and showers, kitchens and entertainment centers with TV and DVD players. This is all well and good until you need to find a campground. There's no shortage of quality campgrounds for RV travel nationwide. Select from numerous methods and resources to find these RV camps and locations.
