A key factor in planning an RV road trip is selecting RV parks and resorts.
If you’re looking for a five-star RV resort with all the amenities including 50-amp electric, water, sewer, cable TV, and Wi-Fi, there are several things to consider before making your decision.
An earlier post on Vogel Talks RVing detailed the nine characteristics of a five-star RV resort: quality customer service, adequate space between sites, pull-through sites that are spacious and well maintained, utilities are centrally located and up to date, quality Internet at all sites, convenient way to dispose of trash, clean and well-maintained laundry facilities, picnic tables, and pet area.
During the past several years we’ve had the pleasure of staying at numerous 5-star RV resorts. In an earlier post we detail five such parks. In today’s post we offer five more memorable RV resorts.
Coastal Georgia opened in 2009 with paved streets and sites along with paved picnic table pads. Most pull-through sites are in the 65-75 foot range with back-in sites from 55-65 feet. Amenities include Wi-Fi, cable TV, swimming pool with covered patio. A tastefully done pavilion with fireplace and deck overlooks adjacent lake.
We would return in a heartbeat. Located on I-95, Exit 29. Visiting historic Brunswick and the Golden Isles are worthy of your consideration.
Orange Groove RV Park is a unique full service RV park and resort. It’s a 40-acre orchard on the eastern edge of Bakersfield where you park your RV between row after row of beautiful orange trees. Easy-on, easy-off (SR-58 at Exit 119), the 177 pull-through sites are 65-feet and 90-feet long plus extra wide, which makes coming and going a breeze. You just pull right in, pick an orange and enjoy.
All utilities including 30/50-amp electric service, water, sewer, and cable TV (72 channels) are centrally located. Our Wi-Fi was super fast (Site #162). This park is a popular overnight stop for snowbirds with many arriving after dark. We would return in a heartbeat.
Be sure to visit nearby California Fruit Depot; numerous free samples available, good quality, and excellent prices, and friendly staff. Check out the Medjool dates and pistachios. Shipping available.
Ambassador RV Resort is a 5-star resort that is easy-on, easy off (I-84 at Exit 29) with 188 full-service sites, pool, spa, sauna, and 5,000 square foot recreation hall. Features 30-foot x 85-foot short term pull-through sites, 35-foot x 75-foot long term pull through sites, 45-foot x 60-foot back-in sites, and wide-paved streets. Pets are welcome if friendly and owner is well trained.
Located near Idaho’s wine country and convenient to the Boise metro area, the Ambassador is the perfect home base for all your activities.
Texas Lakeside is a 5-star RV resort with long concrete pads, multi-purpose clubhouse, fitness center, tropical pool, stocked fishing lake, and gated entrance. All utilities including 30/50-amp electric service, water, sewer, and cable TV (58 channels including Fox News, CNBC, ESPN, and ESPN2) are centrally located.
Our long pull-through site (#78) faced northeast and as a result our coach was not affected by the afternoon sun. The Wi-Fi signal from our site was excellent. Texas Lakeside recently broke ground for 20 new pull-through and 21back-in sites. Located in Port Lavaca off Highway 35, 50 miles north of Rockport.
An upscale resort near the Alabama Gulf Coast, Lake Osprey RV Resort offers 88 extra-large RV lots designed around 70 acres with an 11 acre Lake Osprey. Lake Osprey amenities include paved interior roads, 16-foot x 75-foot concrete pads, free laundry, hot tub, fitness center, clubhouse, and swimming pool. All utilities including 30/50-amp electric service, water, sewer, and cable TV are centrally located. Located adjacent to Soldiers Creek 18 hole championship golf course.
