Private Campgrounds

There is no single way to find “just” private campground but if you’re into looking via a particular area, see the paragraph below and look at the first two websites.

Ways to find campgrounds

First off, let’s look at “free” ways to find campgrounds (these are not free to stay but free to search but some of them are free to stay also). My favorite is the first on the list, why? It shows reviews and you can sometimes find those out of the way, mom & pop type campgrounds that are not booked solid all season long.

Reservation Info

Now that you’ve found spot what will you need to tell the campground, so have this info readily available before making online reservation or before calling them.

Type of RV: Class A, B, C, Travel Trailer, 5Th Wheel, Popup, Teardrop, etc.

Length of your RV.

Age of your RV (yes, some campgrounds have limits of how old a RV can be to stay at the campground).

Type of electric needed: 50, 30, 20 or 15 Amps.

Number of slides, which side they are on and how far they go out.

Whether you prefer a pull-in site, back-in site or it does not matter.
