Nothing beats the clean breezes and majestic views that come with camping on the beach, and RV owners are uniquely poised to enjoy beachside living like nobody else. With the luxury of your own kitchen and bedroom right at your fingertips, as well as the rugged beauty of the waterfront right at your doorstep, beachside camping is a must do activity for all RVers. While there are plenty of awesome spots to visit across the U.S., here are our top three picks to get you started planning your trip right away.
Ocean Mesa, California
Perched on a cliff over the raging Pacific Ocean in the middle of the Los Padres National Forest, yet just 20 minutes north of San Barbara (which means roadside assistance is just minutes away), this epic beachside RV park has it all. A fully heated outdoor pool and spa, convenience store, laundry facilities and both cable TV and internet hookups mean you will be living the high life in the middle of raw natural splendor. RV sites are private yet close to all the amenities, and many boast amazing views out over the sea. It’s the perfect place for taking in the sunset.
Emerald Beach, Florida
With its own private white sand beach on the shore of the calm crystal clear waters of the Gulf of Mexico, Emerald Beach in Navarre, Florida, is an RVers paradise on earth. Full hookups plus free cable TV and Wi-Fi mean you won’t be not roughing it one bit, while kayak rentals and a 24-hour gym allow you to get as active as you want. Fishing on the onsite pier is a popular hobby, and a fenced-in dog park means even your beloved four-footed travel companion is going to have a great time.
Fish Lake Beach, Illinois
All RV camping sites come with their own picnic bench and fire ring, as well as full-service hookups, at this popular waterfront resort right off Highway 120. From fishing and boating in the lake to chilling out in the hot tub or kiddie pool, Fish Lake Campground is made for family-friendly fun in the sun. The RV resort also hosts daily activities like volleyball tournaments and arts and crafts classes, as well as live entertainment at night, which means there is never a dull moment here. And to make sure your trip doesn’t get too exciting, roadside assistance is just a short distance away.
