When we first starting traveling in our RV we stayed at privately owned campgrounds such as KOA and Yogi Bear Parks. These offer great activities for children but comes with a price. Then we discovered a better way to camp with larger campsites, spectacular views, and very little money. It is easy to find camping spots for as little as eight dollars a night and sometimes free. With a National Park senior pass (people 62 and older qualify) you receive half off camping at National Parks, Corp of Engineer Parks, and many government maintained parks. Even if you do not qualify for discounts the prices at these parks are well below the price of most privately owned parks. Some of these parks include electric, water, and provide a dump station. If you want to watch TV then you will have to depend on your outside antenna. Free campsites are generally located in BLM (Bureau of Land Management) and National Forest. Very seldom do they have any type of hookups but most offer a beautiful view.
A benefit to RV traveling or camping can be to your health. Leaving the stress of work and everyday life just for a few days a week can be very beneficial to your body and soul. Camping inspires people to exercise. Most RVers and campers are out walking the trails, riding bikes, kayaking, and visiting other campers. Camping promotes meditation. Sometimes just sitting in a chair outside and enjoying the beauty of nature can be mental therapy.
