Year-Round Kid-Friendly RV Parks Welcome Families

Families desperate for a summer getaway decided to try RVing in early summer and many of them are sticking with it long into the school year. Improved campground Internet access is allowing mom and dad to work from home and kids can keep getting educated online.
In winter 2020 and beyond, RV parks and campgrounds will continue seeing record numbers of campers in every season. At least, where the weather is mild enough to camp.

They are a little more pricey but its pretty nice.â€�
