Good Sam Announces Top Destination RV Parks for 2014

The Good Sam RV Travel Guide and Campground Directory announced its list of Top Destination RV Parks for 2014.

Good Sam 2014-Top DestinationShieldGood Sam editors and consultants chose the list of Destination Parks from the annual publication’s database of 8,000 private parks.

These RV parks stand out for their proximity to top tourism attractions, from national forests to amusement parks.

While welcoming travelers to some of North America’s most popular destinations, these parks often help guests arrange tours and provide information to points of interest.

Highlights of this list include:

  • Many parks on the list serve as virtual jumping-off points to nearby attractions. Memphis Graceland RV Park and Campground, for example, is situated just two minutes from Elvis Presley’s legendary home and is linked to the “official site of the King of rock ‘n’ roll.”
  • Several destination RV parks are directly affiliated with an attraction like Camping at Charlotte Motor Speedway, which offers camping in the infield of the South Carolina raceway.
  • Some parks enhance the customer experience by facilitating visits to nearby destinations. For example, the staff at Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park in Niagara Falls, Ontario, provide tour packages for guests seeking spectacular views of the nearby falls.

Worth Pondering…

Slow down and enjoy life. It’s not only the scenery you miss by going too fast—you miss the sense of where you’re going and why.
