National Parks to visit in an RV

RV Friendly National Parks

There are so many amazing national parks, it can be hard to choose one to visit. If you’re traveling in an RV, though, there are some parks that are friendlier and easier to visit than others. Check out our list of RV friendly National Parks and start planning your travel for this and future summers.

Badlands National Park

Badlands National Park posts otherworldly scenery – you may feel like you’ve been dropped in another planet. There is much to take in here, and the park is easily traversed with your RV. The hills are limited, the roads well developed, wide and easy to navigate. Trailhead parking lots are quite spacious, big enough to fit just about any rig.

Everglades National Park

With 1.5 million acres to be explored, the Everglades National Park is the third largest in the contiguous US. Due to its size, there is ample room on roads and at visitor centers at this park. RV’ers in particular may enjoy taking a straight shot through the huge park – starting on the main park road at the east road and ending all the way on the coast at the Flamingo area.

Guadalupe Mountains National Park

Usually mountainous parks, with their narrow, curvy, perilous roads, are best avoided by RVs. However, this park tucked in the far west of Texas is not your typical mountain park. The roads are flat and level on the desert floor and weave through valleys and dunes. Parking lots tend not to be overcrowded, and are great places for you to leave your RV and explore up the mountains with your own two legs.

Mammoth Cave National Park

No matter how large your rig is, it will fit right in in the spacious parking lots around the largest cave system in the world. Even the scenic roads around the park through forests and besides rivers are easily navigated in an RV. Bonus – you’ll be real close to Kentucky bourbon country.

Petrified Forest National Park

The fact that this park is bisected by Route 66 makes it clearly a winner for easy arrivals and departures. This park may be one of the least visited parks in the states, but that just means there’s plenty of space for your rig while you take in the breathtaking views.

White Sands National Park

This is another hidden gem of a park that tends to be much less populated. But just because there aren’t crowds doesn’t mean there isn’t a lot of fun to be had. Enjoy the singular park road that’s wide and spacious, and pull over at any point to sled down some sand dunes.
