The lure of the open road and the comforts of home come together when you’re traveling in a recreational vehicle. You’ve already considered the best places to RV in April.
A key factor in planning an RV road trip is selecting RV parks and resorts. Before you hit the open road, there are a few things you should understand about RV parks.
When it comes time to park and unwind you want an RV park that will make you feel at home. As any experienced RVer can attest, not all RV parks are created equal—the quality varies from budget to high end.
During the past several years we’ve had the pleasure of staying at numerous 5-star RV resorts. Following are some of the more memorable resorts for RV travel in April. Travelers exploring the country in an RV will want to put on the brakes and stay for a while at these RV parks and resorts around the United States.
These top rated RV parks provide the most discerning RVer with best-possible guest experience.
New in 2006, Hee Hee Illahee RV Resort is situated about a mile east of I-5 (Exit 258). The name literally means “A Fun Place to Be”. Big rig friendly with fairly wide paved streets, long pull-through paved sites in the 75-foot range, and conveniently located 30/50-amp electric service, water, two sewer connections, and cable TV (69 channels). Wi-Fi signal worked well from our site (#56). We would return to this 5-star resort in a heartbeat.
If your passion in quality artisan cheeses, check out Willamette Valley Cheese, 13 miles from the resort on SR-221.
Approximately 6 miles north of I-85 (Exit 6), Capital City RV Park is a 5-star park located on the northeastern edge of Montgomery. Our pull-through site was in the 65-75 foot range. 50/30-amp electric service, water, sewer, and cable TV (48 channels) are centrally located. Interior roads and individual sites are gravel. Wi-Fi worked well from our site; no problem locating satellite. This is a well designed and maintained RV park with very reasonable rates.
Conveniently located the New Green Acres RV Park offers 106 long and wide pull through sites with full hookups including 50/30-amp electric service. Our home base while exploring Walterboro and the Lowcounty, we would return to this 5-star RV park in a heart-beat.
Walterboro is only 45 miles from the Atlantic Ocean. Charleston, Edisto Island, Savannah, and Hilton Head Island are only a short drive away, and Interstate 95, the main north-south corridor on the Eastern Seaboard, skirts the western edge of the city.
Bellingham RV Park, Bellingham, Washington
Bellingham RV Park is easy-on, easy off I-5 at Exit 258, a short drive south of the Canadian border and about two hours north of Seattle. Our pull-through site (#10) is in the 70-foot range with utilities including 50/30/20-amp electric service, water, sewer, and cable TV (20 channels) centrally located. Some streets are paved while the sites are crushed gravel. Wi-Fi works well from our site; with no obstruction we easily latch onto the satellite for TV. The only negative is that our site is not level, sloping toward the front of the site.
Big-rig friendly, Durango is a 5-star resort located on the Sacramento River. Most sites are pull-through 70-90 feet in length and 30-35 feet wide. In addition there are 11 riverfront sites and 21 water-feature spaces (fountains); these sites have utilities on both sides of the concrete pads enabling fifth wheels and travel trailer to back onto the sites and motorhomes to drive forward maximizing the view and water features. In addition, there are a number of buddy sites.
The park is well laid out and designed. Utilities including 20/30/50-amp electric service, water, sewer, and cable TV (63 channels) are centrally located. Wi-Fi works well from our coach at our site (#114). Interior roads are paved. A beautiful RV resort with friendly and courteous staff. We have stayed at Durango on several occasions and would return again in a heartbeat. On I-5, Exit 649 (Highway 36/Antelope Boulevard).
Finding us is easy.
