What is a Luxury RV Resort?
There are many options available for RV owners looking for a place to set up. The three most common options are RV resorts, RV parks, and RV campgrounds. The difference between the three options can be significant.
What’s the Difference?
RV parks will offer a more park-like setting and will have fewer amenities. You’ll have more seclusion and privacy than in an RV resort. You can expect paved roads and level gravel parking pads with plenty of space for RVs of varying sizes.
For a more rustic experience, an RV campground might be the way to go. These areas may or may not have electrical hookups, and some have water and sewer. They often have a dump station available on the grounds. Spots are large and level; however, if your RV is more than 45 feet, some campgrounds won’t be able to accommodate you.
Regular campgrounds don’t always have room for RVs. The ones that do can be very budget-friendly.
How is a Luxury RV Resort Different Than a Regular RV Resort?
Luxury RV resorts often cater to seasonal renters. These resorts are about the destination itself and offer social interactions, as well as special activities. They are big-rig friendly and generally cater exclusively to motorcoaches. They will have 50-amp service with full hookups, paved roads, and paved RV sites.
You can expect large patios to accommodate outside dining, grilling and outdoor living. Some will have a resort pool and other fitness opportunities, such as tennis, pickleball, golf and an exercise facility on-site. There may be a clubhouse where social activities are scheduled and held. The grounds will be well landscaped between sites.
How Much Can I Expect to Pay?
The average cost per night ranges between $45 and $150. These parks offer high-quality maintenance and a ton of amenities and have restrictions on the age and style of RVs and campers permitted inside the park. There also may be pet restrictions in place. These parks are considered to be very exclusive. Prices may vary depending on the season, length of stay, and the services you want during your stay. There also may be seasonal rentals and ownership options. Some luxury RV resorts permit long-term stays and the cost of electricity and Wi-Fi may be included in the rate. There also may be age restrictions in some parks.
Is a luxury RV resort right for you? It really depends on your budget, the length of stay and whether or not you meet the resort’s criteria as far as any restrictions they may have. Call ahead and find out about age and pet restrictions. Make sure your rig meets their requirements. After that, it’s just a matter of making sure this resort offers the amenities you’re looking for and fits within your budget. Perhaps this will be a long-term getaway solution for you. Or, maybe you’re just looking for a resort-like atmosphere to spend a few fun-filled days. Either way, luxury RV resorts can be a fantastic option.
