RV parks offer respite from staying in forests in the middle of nowhere, and in many cases, they offer the same great amenities you find at hotels or resorts. If travelling with kids, the right RV park amenities can help make the experience amazing and easy. You want practical, with the fun of a San Marcos Party Bus! Here’s what to look for if you have kids with you
- Swimming pools
Kids typically have lots of energy, especially if they’ve been stuck in the RV driving all day long. If you find an RV park with a pool, you give the little ones a place to burn off their extra energy. If you cannot find a pool, look for other exercise options such as access to a lake or walking trails. Like hotels, some RV parks even have exercise rooms with treadmills and stationary bikes.
- Convenience stores
No matter how well you pack your RV kitchen, your kids will find times when they are “starving” and none of the snacks you have on hand will do. However, if you are staying at an RV park with a convenience store, you make snacking easier.
Depending on the store, you can get anything from the ingredients for s’mores to chips, candy or even freshly scooped ice cream.
- Game rooms
A game room is a great place for kids to hang out when it’s not nice enough to be outside, and if you have teens or preteens, a game room can offer them a bit of space away from the family.
That can feel essential to some youngsters especially on a long family RV trip. Popular at both resorts and RV parks, game rooms typically host pool tables, pinball games or ping pong tables, and these activities can be free or available for a nominal price.
- Wi-fi connections
If you have kids who love their screens, look for an RV park with wifi access. If your kids have homework to do, wifi access can help make it possible. Additionally, it allows your kids (and you) to update friends on your journeys over social media, and wi-fi makes it possible to watching your favorite streaming services.
Remember to pack a few tablets and earphones so you can all dive quietly into your own shows or music when you need a bit of alone time
In addition to these fun features, you can find RV parks that have special activities for kids or families like group campfires, sing alongs, educational talks about nature and more Just make sure to do your research so you find a park that works well for the entire family.
