Exploring the National Park System by RV is one of the quintessential approaches to visiting national parks, monuments, national recreation areas, and other park system units that combined, represent what Wallace Stegner defined as the best idea America ever had.
Out on the road throughout the parks, it’s easy to see how he came to believe that. From majestic peaks and raging rivers to deep forests, sinuous canyonland, and sweeping prairies, the park system preserves many of the best vistas, culture, and history the United States has to offer.
To help RVers explore these lands and destinations, the National Parks Traveler editors and writers have sifted through the National Park System and come away with the definitive RVing guide to the parks. This Essential Guide To RVing In The National Park System presents RV enthusiasts with a rich collection of articles exploring the park system by RV, camper, or trailer that is supported by a directory packed with RVing-specific details on more than 250 campgrounds in more than 70 parks.
“This unique digital guide brings RV camping in the National Park System to the forefront by bringing an end to frustrating park-by-park web searches to find where you can park your rig and what you can expect in the campground,” said Kurt Repanshek, editor-in-chief of the National Parks Traveler. “It’s just the latest initiative we have tackled to help the public get the most out of their national park adventures.”
Through a table of contents that divides the country geographically, you can quickly find the park you want to visit, click on its link, and find both an overview of that park along with a chart of campground information ranging from hookup availability, generator hours, ADA site availability, nightly fees, maximum RV length individual sites can handle and much more.
This information typically has only been available through painstaking searches through individual national park websites. The Traveler’s team has assembled it all in this one portable eBook with an easily searchable database. Along with detailing the campgrounds and their amenities, this 282-page Essential Guide contains sections addressing topics such as preplanning basics, top tips for RVing newbies, what to expect in a national park campground, and best tips for national park RVing.
“Having a resource like this is a game-changer,” added Brian Searl, founder & CEO of Modern Campground. “Kurt and his team at National Parks Traveler have put together a comprehensive resource that starts with where to camp and doesn’t stop as it guides RVers through amenities, site types, and even quality of cell phone signal. I’m looking forward to browsing these pages for some time and seeing how it continues to get even better in the years to come.”
The eBook, offered at an introductory price of $9.95, can be purchased at Amazon.com. It will be updated annually as the Traveler’s writers and editors generate fresh RVing content while out exploring the park system.
