Good Sam Names 'Top Destination RV Parks'
The Good Sam RV Travel Guide and Campground Directory announced its list of Top Destination RV Parks for 2014. These RV parks stand out for their proximity to top tourism attractions, from national forests to amusement parks.
While welcoming travelers to some of North America's most popular destinations, these parks often help guests arrange tours and provide information to points of interest.
Highlights from the list:
• Many parks on the list serve as virtual jumping-off points to nearby attractions. Memphis Graceland RV Park and Campground, for example, is situated just two minutes from Elvis Presley's legendary home and is linked to the "official site of the King of rock 'n' roll."
• Several destination RV parks are directly affiliated with an attraction like Camping at Charlotte Motor Speedway, which offers camping in the infield of the South Carolina raceway.
• Some parks enhance the customer experience by facilitating visits to nearby destinations. For example, the staff at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park in Niagara Falls, Ontario, provides tour packages for guests seeking spectacular views of the nearby falls.
Facts about Destination RV Travel:
• The most popular travel destination in the United States is Las Vegas, Nev., followed by New York City and Orlando, Fla., according to Business Insider magazine.
• The most popular destinations to visit in Canada are Vancouver, British Columbia, followed by Niagara Falls, Ontario, and Montreal, Quebec.
• Not surprisingly, RV parks can be found in high concentrations in or around popular destinations, while other parks are found along the travel corridors leading to popular destinations.
The editors and consultants of the Good Sam RV Travel Guide and Campground Directory chose the list from the annual publication’s database of 8,000 private parks.
In addition to in-depth listings of RV parks and campgrounds across North America, the directory features travel itineraries, maps and tips that RVers need for a journey anywhere in North America.
