3 Unique Ways to Enjoy Family Vacation Campgrounds All Over the Country

As is the case with most things in life, there is no one “right way” to have fun on family vacations, unless you’re having a family vacation at our campgrounds! The activities and amenities at your family’s disposal are truly endless, and it is up to you to decide where you want to stay on these exciting vacations.

Generally speaking, the three most common ways to enjoy your family vacation is through tent camping, RV camping, and or renting a cabin. The most popular form of camping is by tent, as 86% of people who responded to a survey saying that they prefer to “rough it.” About 33% said they prefer cabin camping, and another 24% of families bring their RV along for the ride. Each of these options has its own benefits, and we suggest you try each of them before choosing one as your favorite.

While more “experienced” campers may opt for a tent, cabin camping could be best for your family if you’re not ready to rough it in the great outdoors. Whichever one you choose, your family is guaranteed to have the experience of a lifetime. Here’s a quick overview of the three most common places to stay on family vacation campgrounds:

    • “Roughing it” in a tent. If your family just wants a brief escape from life to recharge your batteries, you should consider the simplistic experience of tent camping. Nearly 70% of tent campers have one to two-night outings, so it’s perfect for those quaint weekend getaways. Tent camping also makes it easier to enjoy classic camping activities such as hiking, fishing, and hunting.
    • RV camping resorts. RV campers tend to have the longest outings, with 28% spending five or more nights on a trip. This is likely because families can bring all of their personal belongings on the RV and feel more comfortable on their trip. If your family is new to camping, look into RV rentals and embark on a road trip to one of the many amazing campgrounds in the United States.
    • Vacation camping rentals. Family vacation cabins are absolutely ideal for those who are used to more luxurious vacations. These days, family vacation campgrounds are much different than decades ago. Now, our campgrounds have tons of exciting amenities near the cabin rentals, including splashparks, playgrounds, and even party events with DJs and music. So you will enjoy no matter how you choose to camp with us!
