With warm weather and less of a chance that a rainstorm will dampen moods, there’s something extra special about heading outside and being at one with nature. Adults have the chance to unplug from the stresses of everyday life, while the kids can enjoy time outdoors (and out of the classroom!)

If you’re thinking about heading away with your nearest and dearest this summer, these are the campsites you should consider, according to the experts at RV Trader. So grab your gear and get ready for a camping trip to remember.

Gulf Shores, AL

Just a short stroll from the beach is Luxury RV Resort in Gulf Shores, Alabama. You’ll find  a swimming pool with a deck and lounge seating area, as well as a huge fire pit and picnic tables. There are plenty of family-friendly activities on offer, too.

San Diego, CA

Situated in sunny San Diego, Campland on the Bay is pet-friendly, family-friendly, and has no shortage of activities to keep kids (and adults) of all ages entertained. Think water sports, craft activities, biking, and more.

Bar Harbor, ME

If the breath-taking sunrises and sunsets aren’t enough to draw you to Bar Harbor/Oceanside KOA, consider the many campground activities and events that take place throughout the season.

Berlin, MD

Just 15 minutes away from the beach Sun Outdoors Frontier Town is a western-themed park that’s guaranteed to provide lots of summer fun for all the family. Expect horse riding experiences, mini golf, swimming, and more. Don’t have an RV? There’s also lodging available.

Grand Island, NY

Between Niagara Falls and Buffalo, New York, Branches of Niagara Campground is the ideal location for those who want to tick off some bucket list experiences this summer.
