Traveling by RV is a great way to explore America’s National Parks. However, planning a National Parks RV trip can be intimidating.
After setting up camp at 14 National Parks all across the country we are ready to help you plan an amazing RV trip. You can read about each of our National Park RV trips by clicking the links at the bottom of the page.
The National Park Service was established on August 25, 1916. The NPS currently oversees 423 sites. Included are 63 national parks.
Thankful there are many camping opportunities in the National Park System. Currently, there are 130 park units that offer camping. Of those, 13 have full or partial utility connections for RVs.
Be Sure to Participate in the Junior Ranger Program
The Junior Ranger Program is an activity-based program found at many of the National Parks 423 sites. This program is as simple as visiting a park, completing an activity book, sharing answers with a Park Ranger, and receiving a unique badge.
Its motto “Explore, Learn, and Protect” sums up what you can expect from the program. Each activity will help you explore the park, teach you all about the park, and show how you can help protect our National Parks.
This is a great way to explore the Parks and allows you to continue learning while traveling. All for free.
Purchase an America the Beautiful Pass
This pass to the National Parks accomplishes two goals. First allows you to enter an unlimited number of Parks during the year without our having to pay the entrance fee. In addition, it will motivate you to go on more than one National Parks RV trip.
In addition to the National Parks, the pass provides access to more than 2,000 recreation areas managed by five Federal agencies.
Purchasing an America the Beautiful pass is a simple process. They are purchased on the USGS Online Store. There are different prices for annual passes, lifetime senior passes, and military passes
National Monuments, Historical Sites, and More
The NPS does a lot more than protect the National Parks, and the land they are on. In addition to that, they help protect our history and help share the story of the United States. These additional sites include monuments, battlefields, military parks, historical parks, historic sites, lakeshores, seashores, recreation areas, scenic rivers and trails, and even the White House!
Every state but Delaware has an NPS site that can be visited.
