East Coast RV Campgrounds | 5 Must Visit Family Friendly Parks

RV camping is a beautiful way to explore the outdoors while spending quality time with your family. Of course, after long days of driving or exploring, it is nice to come back and relax at an RV campground. Finding good RV campgrounds for your family can be a challenge at times. Although we are fans of KOA campgrounds, sometimes it’s nice to change it up. Here we review our top 5 favorite east coast RV campgrounds we have stayed at so far. 

The east coast offers many beachfront RV destinations. In addition, several inland parks offer incredible views and activities. Whether you are looking to learn something new, relax on the beach, or hang out at the park, you are sure to find the perfect destination here.

Cherry Hill Park

This is one of the best east coast RV campgrounds we have camped at.  Cherry Hill Park is a highly family-friendly RV park.  This fantastic park is also the closest full hook-up RV campground to Washington D.C.. Washington D.C. is filled with museums, monuments, National Park sites, and much more. The number one reason to go with a family is that most of these attractions are free!

Cherry Hill offers everything you need when traveling with kids. There are two swimming pools, miniature golf, movies, a playground, an arcade, and a small cafe. We have stayed here four times, and it was spotless and well-maintained each time. In addition, there is a large store where the staff is fantastic. They are more than helpful when planning your time in the nation’s Capital. To top it all off, the RV park has transportation to the closest public transportation. You can easily be in the Nation’s Capital in half an hour.

If you are looking for a great RV park to set up camp, enjoy time with your family, and relax, this park is perfect for that as well. There are plenty of amenities to keep all members, regardless of age, and entertain right on the grounds of the park.

The RV sites are dirt with a picnic table and fire pit. Each area is surrounded by trees and offers some privacy. 

The highlight of Moose Hillock is the Blue Lagoon Tropical Swimming Pool. Sitting in the White Mountains National Forrest, situated in the middle of nowhere, is this massive Spanish Galleon that empties into a heated pool. There is always kids, and activity, around the pool. 

One thing to be aware of is that since you are in the White Mountains, cell service and wifi are non-existent. Fortunately, there is wifi service around the pool and a small cafe.
