q&a what is your favorite rv resort, campground or boondocking site, and why?

When traveling through Nevada, we love Wells Welcome Station just outside of Wells, Nevada. It’s a quiet little green oasis in the desert with full hook-ups available. Lamb’s Resort on the North Shore of Lake Superior is amazing! The views of the lake are the best. You can tent camp right on the beach, and RVers can also park near the beach. Such a great place to see the fall colors. Full hook-up is available. —Melissa Naatz, California With so many state parks in New York, and such diverse landscape, it’s difficult to choose just one. If we had to narrow it down, we’d choose Watkins Glen State Park in Schuyler County, New York. The campground is wooded, with only one loop of electric sites. All the rest are non-electric, making for…

california’s 395 the road tripper’s highway

Highway 395 is the main road for the entire eastern slope of California’s Sierra Nevada Mountains. It is a vacation highway, a road tripper’s joy, and certainly not what most people think of as “California”. The scenery is unequaled. But there’s not a single beach, no ocean views, no freeway and there aren’t very many people. It normally isn’t very busy, except when the ski bunnies escape LA and head for the slopes at Mammoth. Highway 395 begins off Interstate 15 just beyond San Bernardino and Cajon Pass. You’re traveling on open desert with stately Joshua trees and creosote for company. This is the Mojave Desert: a hot, dry barren land, yet a lively place with more than roadrunners and coyotes. The tracks on a typical desert trail show the…

lucerne campground

The drive to the Flaming Gorge Reservoir in Northeast Utah is a wide-open, high-desert, beautiful-but-abandoned-looking part of the state. We drove west from Laramie, Wyoming, on I-80, exited at Green River, Wyoming, then went 44 miles south to the Flaming Gorge Reservoir Recreation Area in Ashley National Forest. In late July, the road was an easy-going two-lane highway that dipped closer to sea level with brown, dusty terrain and interesting rock formations on either side of the road. We saw no signs of life-only a pin to the left on our GPS, indicating the “Greater Green River Intergalactic Spaceport.” Eventually, we spotted the Green River to our left and the Flaming Gorge in the distance with mountains that stretched as far as we could see. We spent three nights at the…

remember the alamo!

Suppose your travels take you near San Antonio, Texas, and you have the slightest interest in American history. The Alamo is a perfect place for your next RV destination. Situated directly in the city center, just a few blocks away from the famous San Antonio Riverwalk sits the San Antonio de Valero mission. Later renamed the Alamo and Long Barracks, the old Spanish mission can trace its origins back to the early 1700s. The Alamo is rich in history and two of the still standing structures, the church and Long Barracks, are the oldest buildings in Texas. One of the bloodiest battles of the Texas Revolution occured here and the Alamo became a story of heroism and courage under fire in the face of incredible odds. The conflict’s horrific conclusion started…

winchester bay

If traveling to the Pacific Northwest ever lands on your to-do list, be sure to include Winchester Bay, Oregon, in your itinerary. This mecca for all things recreational might be reason enough to venture farther west and north in your travels. But if you’re driving along Highway 101 between Washington and California, it would be easy to drive on by and not even know you’d missed it. This hidden gem of RV wonder is just over a small rise and a bit off the beaten path. Winchester Bay RV Park—Just One of Many Once you turn west off Highway 101 and crest the little hill, you’ll come upon an RVer’s paradise. There’s a fantastic RV Park in Winchester Bay. Built on a man-made peninsula that juts out into the bay, the park…
