Spring RV GetawaysPublished on Aug 16, 2022
Spring is right around the corner…hopefully! It’s time to start planning your RV getaway & kick these winter blues! There are countless opportunities for fun around the country. Soon you could be hiking historical trails, golfing a beautiful course in southern Florida, exploring underground caves, splashing around a white sandy beach or enjoying a relaxing winery tour! We have found five amazing destinations, and one of them may be your next Spring RV adventure!
Katy Trail State Park
The trail began as the Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railroad which was part of the main line to St. Louis. It has since been converted into a 240-mile trail for bicyclists, horseback riders and hikers. The Katy Trail trip planner allows you to conveniently plan your stay along the trail and locate services! Cooper’s Landing Riverport Marina is one example of excellent campgrounds. Cooper’s Landing has 30 amp electric and water hookups as well as a dump station. The marina offers dining, boat fuel, a dock, and a store.
If you are in the mood to take the kids to the beach, ride bikes, hit the golf course, the aquarium or zoo, or maybe even take in a Baltimore Orioles Spring Training game, then Sarasota, Florida is your spot! The white sand beaches lie an hour south of Tampa, as well as some of Florida’s oldest and largest state parks. The County of Sarasota has two state parks: Myakka River State Park and Oscar Scherer State Park, as well as the Myakka State Forest. Each location is filled with notable wildlife and birding hotspots for rare birds found only in Florida! There is also plenty of space for some form of camping and hiking.
Steamboat Springs, Colorado
Nestled in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, Steamboat Springs offers plenty of activities for the whole family, from skiing and snowboarding, to relaxing in the natural hot springs, to hiking through the wilderness areas, botanical gardens, and parks. There will be something for everyone! There are two main areas for shopping, dining, and recreating, Gondola Square and Downtown. There is also a free bus system as well as free shuttle services to get you to where you need to go. The atmosphere is real, genuine, and friendly, just like the people who live there!

Carlsbad Caverns National Park
The Carlsbad Cavern is one of the oldest and most famous caves in the world, located in the Guadalupe Mountains in southeastern New Mexico.

The largest is The Big Room, a limestone chamber that is the fifth largest in North America and the twenty-eighth largest in the world! Camping is by permit only, and free permits may be obtained at the Visitor Center. For campers, ⅔ of the park is set aside for wilderness area.
