One of the benefits of owning an RV is that you may decide to go on a holiday on a whim. Interested in spending your next weekend in a national park? We’ve got you covered. Since there are so many national parks in the United States, it may be overwhelming to just pick one option for your upcoming road trip. With this comprehensive list of the best national parks to visit in your RV this winter, you will have no problem picking out a spot perfect for your needs.
Mount Rainier, Washington
If you’re a winter sports lover, Mount Rainier National Park is a great place for your journey. Downhill skiing and snowboarding are popular activities, as is snowmobiling. Whether you’re traveling with children or not, there’s really no reason not to stop at one of the designated snow fort and snowman construction spots while on the road.
If you hang around for a long enough period of time, you will almost certainly get involved in a snowball fight. After that, you may go sledding or snowshoeing through the beautiful forest on your own or with a professional guide. Be sure to take in the scenery and keep yourself warm in the cold winter. If you still haven’t mounted an appropriate RV air heater to your vehicle, this is your sign from above to do so as soon as possible. If you’re freezing in your RV, you won’t really have the energy to make the most out of your trip and have the experience of a lifetime.
Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado
The Rocky Mountain National Park is a great option for those who love winter activities. Snowshoeing, skiing, sledding, sightseeing, and a number of other activities are available in this park, which offers something for everyone.
There are several businesses in the nearby town that are perfect for tourists, so you won’t have to haul as much gear as you would otherwise. What is also great about this national park is that it has one of the most beautiful vistas in all of America. For RV drivers there’s an added benefit – since the mountainside is so picturesque, you may take out your RV for scenic drives alongside the mountain and soak in the views from the comfort of your mobile home. The perfect roads for magnificent drives are Trail Ridge Road and Old Fall River Road.
Death Valley National Park, California
Not everybody enjoys the snow and ice and thankfully the US is big enough to accommodate everyone’s National Park wishes. In Death Valley National Park summers are scorching hot, making it nearly impossible to spend some quality time in this beautiful national park. Thankfully, throughout the winter months, weather conditions mellow out and it becomes perfectly comfortable to enjoy the wonderful scenery of the Californian Death Valley.
It’s a must to go hiking and take in the breathtaking countryside. If you love Star Wars you’ll surely enjoy the fact that the movies were filmed here, so you may plan out a self-guided Star Wars Auto Tour. We urge you to remain awake until the small hours to see the wonderful starry nights.
Everglades National Park, Florida
If you’re not a fan of winter sports or you don’t want the hassle of driving on the icy roads, we’ve got another option for you. Everglades National Park is a must-see destination in the south of the US, and virtually everyone would agree that the ideal time to visit is during the winter months. While the humidity is substantially lower in the winter, the temperatures are still comfortable and warm without being hellishly hot.
Taking an airboat tour of the park is a great option if you don’t get seasick, while kayaking and canoeing are other great water activities you can choose. While you’re there, don’t forget to go on the alligator tour at night – we promise you’ve never experienced anything like it.
