Living in New England our Rv spends the winter under a cover until the spring. Therefore, April vacation is when we first open the RV and look for warmer weather. When the winter is over we look for great RV spring break destinations to enjoy with our family.
After the long, cold winter it is time to enjoy the warmth of the sun, and head to the beach. So our first Rv trip of the year is often to a southern RV spring break destination. One where the sun is warm, and we can sit on the beach.
Here we share a number of the spring break destinations we have enjoyed with our family in our RV. It is a list of spring break family-friendly destinations good for the entire family. Spring break RV travel is a great way to shake off the winter and get back to making camping memories.
RV Spring Break Destinations
1. Ocean Lakes Family Campground / Myrtle Beach S.C.
Ocean Lakes Family Campground is one of our top RV spring break destinations. It is a huge RV park with something to do for all members of the family.
Ocean Lakes is often ranked in the top 1% of Rv destinations in the United States. The campground has 859 pull-through campsites, a majority of which include level concrete pads. In addition, all the sites sit within walking distance of the beach.
The campground is located about 4 miles from downtown Myrtle Beach where there are plenty of things to see and do. One difficulty for us is since we don’t tow a vehicle we often rely on Uber or Lyft. The Campground does not allow these services into the park. However, they will pick you up at the entrance of the park.
If you are looking for a great place to enjoy dinner with kids we recommend Medieval Times Dinner Theatre. While being treated to a Medieval-style meal you get to witness firsthand live jousting, sword fighting, and entertainment including live horses.
Our time in Ocean Lakes was relaxing, and memorable. Every morning we would wake to the sunrise over the Atlantic Ocean. The days are filled with numerous activities planned by the campground, swimming, sunbathing and just relaxing at the campsite.
2. Cape Hatteras, Outer Banks KOA Resort / Outer Banks N.C.
If you are looking for a quiet, relaxing vacation on the beach then Cape Hatteras / Outer Banks KOA Resort is a must. The campground sits on the Atlantic Ocean side of the island and right across the street is the Pamlico sound. This provides amazing views of both the sunrise and sunset.
The sight we camped in,106, had full hookups and backed right up to the beach on the Atlantic Ocean. We were able to set up our beach chairs in the morning and see the sunrise over the ocean, and then in the evening turn our chairs around and watch the sunset.
This KOA resort offers a great pool and small water slides that will keep the kids busy for hours. There is also a cafe and a large lounge area. We brought our bicycles with us and spent the afternoons adventuring along the island on our bikes. If you are looking for things to see and do, the Cape Hatteras lighthouse is about 20 miles south of the campground. To the north of the campground, you will find Kitty Hawk and the Wright Brothers National Memorial.
The Our Banks is a great Rv spring break destination if you are looking for a relaxing beach experience with the out hustle and bustle of other tourist-type destinations.
3. Holiday Trav-L-Park | Virginia Beach
Another great RV destination near the Atlantic Ocean is the Holiday Trav-L-Park in Virginia Beach.
Holiday Trav-L-Park is 2.5 miles from the famed Virginia Beach boardwalk. There is a designated parking area at the beach for Park visitors with a seasonal trolly to the parking area.
The park itself is large with over 400 different sites. They offer 4 different swimming pools throughout the park, a convenience store, and other family-centered activities throughout the day.
If you are looking for a great campground, with amazing staff, lots of family activities, and the ability to sit on the beach, Holiday Trav-L-Park would be a great spot.
4. New Orleans RV Resort and Marina / New Orleans, LA.
This spring break destination is noticeably a little different than the ones described above. We have a separate blog post New Orleans Camping | A Great Time in the Big Easy detailing our stay down in New Orleans.
This was not our typical spring break vacation on the coast but was an opportunity we couldn’t resist.
The New Orleans Rv Resort and Marina is only 12 minutes away from the famed New Orleans French Quarter. The campground provides free round-trip transportation from the park to the French Quarter.
The campground has great amenities if you are looking to just sit back, and relax at the campground itself. There is a great restaurant and bar on site. They offer live entertainment and great local cuisine.
Regardless of when you are looking to visit New Orleans we highly recommend camping at the New Orleans RV Resort and Marina.
