Amusement Parks & RV Camping

March 29, 2013

Roller Coaster​With summer just around the corner it's almost prime amusement park season! There are numerous options to choose from, but we'd like to profile some of the country's best destination spots in this week's blog, along with nearby RV options.

Legoland, Carlsbad, CA. There are Legolands all over the world, and two in the States, but the California location trumps the Florida spot with a few extra additions, like an aquarium and a new resort hotel that opens this year. What Legoland lacks in visceral ride thrills it makes up for in more unique kid-friendly rides. The park offers RV parking for $20, and you can stay overnight at numerous locations nearby up and down the coast, such as the Oceanside RV Park.

Busch Gardens, Williamsburg, VA. Busch Gardens is one of America's most beautiful parks, with lush landscapes that show off what Virginia is capable of. In addition to the usual wild roller coasters and water park, Busch Gardens also offers live animal exhibits and a food and wine festival. You can stay in your RV at the nearby Anvil RV Park, which offers a shuttle service to the park.

Schlitterbahn, New Braunfels, TX. A lot of amusement parks offer water parks on the side, but Schlitterbahn is ALL water park, and is considered by many to be the world's best. The park is actually three large parks in one, and has something for everyone, from a leisurely bob in a river, to high speed tube slides. RV camping is available right on the Guadalupe River at the Lazy L and L campground.
