The Good Sam RV Travel Guide and Campground Directory announced its list of Top Group Camping RV Parks for 2014. The parks on this list, compiled by the travel guide’s editors and consultants, provide facilities and space for large groups of RVers who camp together and conduct meetings, social gatherings and events.
From manufacturers’ organizations to independent RVing clubs, RV groups share a passion for hitting the road and meeting up at the end of a long journey. The RV parks on this list deliver when it comes to giving these groups all they need for a great stay.
Here are just a few reasons why RVers travel in a caravan:
• A number of RV parks dedicate staff members to serve large groups. Blueberry Hill RV Resort in Bushnell, Fla., for example, avails groups to an on-site event concierge to help coordinate renting a clubhouse or pavilion and reserving space for as many as 20 RVs.
• Facilities also are a key feature for group friendly parks, such as EZ Daze RV Park in Southaven, Miss., which offers a southern veranda for cookouts as well as a meeting room that’s adjacent to a fully equipped kitchen.
• Food is a top-of-the-mind item for RVing groups. River Plantation RV Resort in Pigeon Forge, Tenn., for example, provides catering for large RVing groups who travel with an appetite.
RVing groups have a significant presence in campgrounds throughout North America. Among the more interesting aspects of RV group camping:
• The Good Sam Club alone boasts almost 1,500 chapters across the United States and Canada.
• Many RVing groups spend countless hours in charitable work, from cleaning up public highways and parks to raising funds for organizations like Dogs for the Deaf.
The editors and consultants of the Good Sam RV Travel Guide and Campground Directory chose the list of Top Group Camping RV Parks from the annual publication’s database of 8,000 private parks.
In addition to in-depth listings of RV parks and campgrounds across North America, the Good Sam RV Travel Guide and Campground Directory features travel itineraries, helpful maps and informative tips that RVers need for a journey anywhere in North America.

In support of “Great Outdoors Month,” the Pennsylvania Campground Owners Association (PCOA) is teaming up with Cabela’s in Hamburg, Pa., to promote the camping lifestyle on June 10-11. “Get Outdoors and Go Camping…It’s Easy” is the theme that the association has chosen to use for its two-day promotion.
Members of the association will be on hand to greet the guests and give them a 2011 Campground Directory of privately owned parks, according to a news release. The guests will be encouraged to check out the RVs and tents supplied by Maiden Creek Marine and RV in Berks County. They will experience what camping is really like by making mini-s’more around the campfire and singing a few campfire songs. Coloring books will be given to the children and there will be photo opportunities. Expert outfitters from Cabela’s will be demonstrating the newest camping products available and helping campers gear up for their next trip.
“Camping is not only the most affordable vacation around, it also is fun and memorable. In Pennsylvania you have over 230 campgrounds to choose from to make that memory,” said Beverly Gruber, PCOA executive director.
She adds, “Time spent camping or RVing allows you to slow down and gives you the flexibility to pursue what you want and where you want to be. It gives you a chance to rediscover your family and lets you choose the activities your family enjoys. So stop in at Cabela’s and get acquainted with camping and RVing.”
This promotion ties in with the “Great Outdoors Month” in June, being promoted by the American Recreation Coalition (ARC) and proclaimed nationwide by President Obama and nearly every state governor in the United States.
Camping is a family activity which is a great memory-maker. At this Cabela’s event, young families will be encouraged to go camping during the month of June. A coupon is being issued from the Go Camping America website, www.gocampingamerica.com, that gives a 20% discount on your campground stay. The downloadable coupons are valid only between June 1 and June 25 at participating parks, so when you call to make your reservations, be sure to ask if they will accept the GCA coupon.
