Why the Summer is the Best Time to go RV Camping

If you’re planning an RV getaway with your family, the summertime may be the best option. After all, your kids will be on vacation—and the warm weather gives you and your family more opportunities to have fun. How does a water-themed RV vacation sound? Bluewater Key RV Resort in Key West, Florida is one great option—travelers to the resort often refer to it as a paradise. Located just 10 miles from historic Key West, Bluewater is close enough for you and your family to enjoy the fun, fine dining and numerous attractions of the city, but just far enough away to be able to relax and enjoy the peacefulness of the ocean.

Taking an RV vacation during the summer months also gives you and your family the great chance to visit fun amusement parks during the journey. Also, if you plan well—you can prepare a travel route that also includes stops at concerts or music festivals, which the entire family can enjoy.

If you do plan on going RV camping during the summer, be prepared for crowded campgrounds. This as a great way for you and your family to make friends but make sure to plan your trips early so the campgrounds don’t get full!

Why the Fall is the Best Time to go RV Camping

Many RV enthusiasts love camping during the fall—if you’re planning on a fall camping getaway, check out our list of the top five RV parks to visit on the east coast during fall. There is something very special about parking at these spots and going exploring on a gorgeous, crisp fall evening. Also, Halloween presents some very attractive options during this season. 

The Halloween activities at Granite Hill Camping Resort in Gettysburg, PA have become so popular over the years that the resort schedules the last three weekends in October to hold all the fun. These weekends are packed with costume contests, pumpkin carving competitions, trick-or-treating, and even a haunted Civil War barn! Your entire family can enjoy a spooky ghost walk around the campground. Just remember to bring some jackets as the fall can get a little nippy!

Why the Spring is the Best Time to go RV Camping

The spring is another excellent time for an RV camping adventure. Your kids will be off from school during spring break—and the weather should be beautiful! There are some truly spectacular, breathtaking scenic camping destinations on the east coast that you and your family can travel to. 

Pine Valley RV Park & Campground in Binghamton, NY is one great option. This campground is snuggled among the picturesque rolling hills near Binghamton, and it offers spacious campsites in a variety of wooded and open settings. Mill Bridge Village Camp Resort in Paradise, PA (how wonderful does that sound?) is another great option. This resort is settled among rolling hills and enchanted woodlands. Many of the camp sites are tree-shaded by the streamside, making this one of the most pristine camping destinations on the east coast. 


At Beckley’s, we don’t usually think of the winter as the best time to go RV camping. This is usually when you want to winterize your trailer. However, we do have some important winter RV travel tips—if you do choose this time of the year for an RV getaway. 


That’s about it! The summer, fall, and spring seasons really are the best for RV getaways. Factor in the benefits of camping during each of these seasons. If you have any questions or want to learn more, call us at 800-615-6171.
