Choosing a Campground

Trying to find the perfect campground for your trip might seem like an impossible task.  Luckily, there is a variety of campgrounds to match almost anyone’s lifestyle.  Here are some tips to help with your search:

Consider Your Needs

Choosing a campground not suited to your family’s needs and interests can put a damper on the whole trip. Think about your RVing lifestyle when selecting a park and ask yourself the following questions:

Are you looking for on-site activities?

How large is your RV?

What amenities do you require?

What is your destination location?

What is your nightly/weekly camping budget?

Locating and Researching Campgrounds

Whether you plan to stay one night or longer, there are campgrounds throughout Indiana, the U.S. and Canada to meet your needs. All are unique and no two parks are the same.

There are numerous ways to locate and research campgrounds. A good place to begin is the Indiana RV Lifestyle Campground Search.  There you can search by name, city, zip code and amenities.

If you are looking to travel outside Indiana, a good place to start your search would be Go Camping America’s Find a Park search.

It is always good to contact the campground and ask specific questions about their policies and their park so that there are no surprises. Questions to ask include:

Rental rates? Any discounts available?

What is included in the above rate?

What are the park’s amenities?

What kind of RV can they handle?

What kind of sites do they have?

Is a credit card required to hold a site? If so, is it processed immediately?
