If you’re starting your journey to RV life and are wondering where to take your RV rental, this blog post is for you!

First, Consider Your Needs

RV rentals are a very convenient way to go camping as your San Antonio RV rental will have everything you need available when you need it. When planning your camping trip, it’s important to keep in mind if you’ll need full hookups or if you’ll be “dry camping”. Dry camping refers to RV camping without access to hookups that would provide water, power, and, in some cases, access to dumping stations.

It might sound impossible but there are RV rentals available that include features, such as an independent power source, that make it possible. The features may be a little limited so it’s important to consider how long you will be camping as well as what resources you will be using and how much of them you will be using. Understanding what you need while planning your camping trip will help you determine the best place to park your San Antonio RV rental.

Where to Camp in Your San Antonio RV Rental

RV parks and resorts are some of the most popular places to go RV camping. No matter what part of the country you visit, you’re pretty much guaranteed to find a very accommodating RV park or resort, complete with full hookups as well as a variety of amenities such as public restrooms and showers, playgrounds and pavilions, and even laundry facilities. RV parks and resorts can be a bit pricey but are well worth it for the convenience of the hookups and amenities. They’re also usually located near a town or city providing convenience should the need for a grocery trip or in case of an emergency.

State and national parks are also great places to take your San Antonio RV rentals. Typically, these parks offer a campground on the premises providing you the opportunity to camp surrounded by beauty. When it comes to camping in a state or national park, it’s important to note that they won’t come with the hookups or amenities that you’ll find at an RV park or resort and it’s also important to note that you usually have to book these spots months in advance.
