Fancy RV Parks Will Cost a Bit More, but They will Make You Feel Really Important!

You deserve a treat sometimes

Fancy RV Parks are fun to try every once in a while. Sometimes a little spoiling goes a long way. Instead of staying at that same campground with the same manager who tells you the same old story about when Dom DeLuise and Burt Reynolds visited, wouldn’t you prefer to stay somewhere different for a change? Maybe it’s about time that you stayed at that fancy campground on the other side of the tracks. Granted, it will cost you a bit more. Sure, opulence comes at a price, but it also gives us bragging rights. Check out the look on your buddies’ faces when you tell them which campground you stayed at.

Of course, you should call first before driving to these destinations given the current pandemic, as many tourist attractions have temporarily shut down. Also, before you get your motor running, understand that some of these lavish RV campgrounds are so extravagant, that only Class A vehicles or RVs of a certain length are allowed. You’ll also need:

_____  a thirst for a splash of opulence

_____  a few extra dollars

Mind you, it isn’t that much more money. If you calculate the length of your stay, most of the rates do not exceed $90 a night. You might be paying a bit more, but you get a lot back in return. While staying at these luxury RV resorts, be sure to check out the stocked lakes for fishing, mining sluices where you can mine your own diamonds, equipped gyms, tennis courts, spas, theatres, pet parks and even putting greens.  

You might want to check out this article to discover exactly what it means to visit a luxury RV resort. But here is a quick and short list to consider:

Bella Terra of Gulf Shores 

Just a hop, skip and a jump from the pearly white beaches of the Alabama Gulf Coast, lies the Bella Terra of Gulf Shores, an upscale RV resort. You and 14 of your friends could watch a movie in your own private movie theatre, take some swings on a championship golf course, or maybe chill out in a private bath house. This slice of RV paradise has huge RV lots for rent or purchase. Bella Terra is almost always rated as one of the best luxury RV resorts in the country.

Bluewater Key RV Resort

Located in the Florida Keys, this RV resort requires guests to leave all concerns and worries at the door. A weekend lying low in one of Bluewater’s tiki huts might include some diving, boating and fishing. Every lot in Bluewater is privately owned, but most of them are available to rent. Spend a weekend in this tropical island paradise and you may never want to leave.

Zion River Resort

Right next to the Virgin River in Utah is the Zion River Resort. They consider themselves to be the only 5-star resort in all of Utah. The location makes it a perfect launching pad for any of the spectacular forests and parks surrounding it, such as the Bryce Canyon National Park, Grand Canyon North Rim and the Cedar Breaks National Monument. Activities include horseback riding, canyoneering, hiking, biking and more.

Desert Shores Luxury Motorcoach RV Resort

In Southern California, this RV resort is bursting with opulence. The lots have grotto pools and waterfalls. While staying at Desert Shores, be sure to check out the mountain and lake views as well as the breathtaking gardens. Most of the Desert Shore properties are available for ownership. A small portion of them are available for rent. Rental prices start at $2,750 a month (about $89/night) with a minimum rental period of one to two months. Also, only RVs larger than 36 feet are allowed into this palatial RV resort.

Normandy Farms Family Camping Resort

On the prestigious page Campground Reviews, Normandy Farms gets a 9 out of 10. This reasonably priced RV resort, located between Boston and Cape Cod, has all you would expect from a top-rated RV destination. Normandy Farms just might be the perfect choice for all of your family members. Even your four legged pooch is gonna love this place as it features a 1.5 acre dog park equipped with a dog wash and a drinking fountain. For the two legged species, Normandy has a Wellness Center where you can choose from a list of different massages. There’s also yoga, disc golf, horseshoes, shuffleboard, biking, softball and soccer fields, and even tennis courts. 

The fancy RV parks we’ve highlighted here are just a needle in the haystack. Do a little research and find one that you would drive to. That posh RV resort is waiting for you! Although the thought of spending more than usual on an idyllic site to stay might set off the red flags in some folks, there are a few highly rated spots that are more affordable than you might imagine. And don’t forget, be sure to stay covered and worry free with the RV Advisor Roadside Assistance and Tire & Wheel Coverage plans!
