Want to take a guided RV Tour, but have kids in tow?  You’re in luck!  Our new sponsor, Family RV Caravans, offers guided RV tours for families with children.  This is exactly what we need, as RVing Dads; a fun way to explore the country, time to relax around a campfire, and fun activities for our kids.

 Visit the colorful swirls at Vermilion Cliffs National Monument. Family RV Caravan’s guided tour of Utah National Parks occurs in the Spring of 2021.

Why wait in line at Disney or get locked in a cabin on a Cruise ship, when you can safely explore America with your family in a guided RV Caravan?  See beautiful sights while making memories that last a lifetime!

“This is a game changer for the RV industry. We are the first and only RV tour company dedicated to families with children.” says Tara Pike, Marketing Director for Family RV Caravans.  

You can expect a fully guided experience led by RV experts, as they caravan through the most beautiful spots in America. Spend days immersed in beautiful locations and relax in the evenings with other families, as they explore National Parks, beaches, and scenic beauty.  The caravans stay at campgrounds and RV resorts each night, take a short drive each day filled with tours of beautiful places.  Each evening is filled with delicious foods, relaxed activities and, undoubtedly, campfires!

Coffee

RV Coffee Tips

Coffee is very important. This is true no matter where you live, but for RVers it’s even moreso. Why? Because many RVers like to socialize in the morning. Who wants to do that without a good cup of joe?

That said, RVers also have to put a little more thought into how they get their hands on a decent cup of the good stuff. Coffee machines and accessories have to be small enough to fit in/on a tiny space. On top of that, those who prefer heading to the coffee shop—and taking advantage of the free Wi-Fi—are faced with the challenge of having to pick from an entire country of great coffee shop options. 

In this episode, we hear from Todd and Dustin on how they make their coffee, the gear they recommend, and the best coffee shops they’ve found.

Favorite Camping Sites

Where to park an RV

For the most part, a campground or RV park is just a place to park while you explore an area. That said, some camping locations stand out from the rest, offering exceptional amenities, awesome activities, or something a bit extra. 

In this episode, Todd and Dustin talk about the best campsites they’ve ever had and why they loved them. 

Northeast

Southeast

  • Sabal Palm RV Resort in central Florida — Rural park with petting zoo and cows.
  • Lake Magic RV Resort in Florida — Encore Park that is part of the Trails Collection. It’s close to Disney and Thousand Trails Orlando. 
  • Camp Gulf in Florida — Park right on the beach! Literally look out your window and see the ocean. 
  • Tannehill State Park in Alabama — An old Civil War ironworks. Neat setting with river and buildings. 

Southwest

  • Monahans Sandhills State Park in Texas — Sites carved into sand dunes. Lots of fun to play in the sand with sleds and boogie boards. 
  • Rockhound State Park in New Mexico — This one has beautiful views. It’s on the side of a mountain, so you can look down into the valley. The perfect place to collect rocks and gems. 
  • City of Rocks State Park in New Mexico — Large, monolithic rocks in the side of the hill. You park in between them, and kids love to clamber through them. Great hiking as well!
  • Boondocking in Moab, Utah — Very popular place for boondocking, and plenty of spots available. Right by Arches National Park and other outdoor recreation.
  • Pirate Cove RV Resort in Arizona — Gorgeous park on the Colorado River. Go during the winter for fewer crowds and decent monthly rates. 

Northwest

  • Harbor Vista County Park in Oregon — Very reasonably priced county park right on the Pacific. Hear the ocean from your site and hike right down to the beach. 
  • Tall Chief RV and Camping Resort in Washington — An Encore park that is part of the Trails Collection. This one is close to Seattle for city exploration. 
  • Baker’s Hole Campground in Montana — Very near Yellowstone National Park. Reasonable rates and right on the river, but first-come, first-served only. 
  • Teddy Roosevelt National Park in North Dakota — Amazing national park with buffalo that walk right through the campground. Sites are unusually large for a national park.
  • Eugene T. Mahoney State Campground in Nebraska — Wonderful state park with a water park and a huge game room. Perfect for kids!

Central

  • Crater of Diamonds State Park in Arkansas — Beautiful state park with a diamond field attached. Guests can rent shovels and buckets and mine for diamonds.
