Good Sam RV Travel Guide Names Top Family Campgrounds for 2013

LINCOLNSHIRE, IL -- (Marketwired) -- 07/19/13 -- Millions of families across North America are hitting the road in a recreational vehicle and leaving airlines and hotels in the dust. The Recreational Vehicle Industry (RVIA) recently reported that the number of RV-owning households in the United States has risen to a record 9 million, and roughly 40 percent of these have kids that are 18 years old or younger.

To help RVers find the parks best-suited for family play and relaxation, Good Sam RV Travel Guide and Campground Directory has compiled a list of the top family RV Parks (see list at bottom) for 2013. Boasting campgrounds from Alberta, Canada, to the Emerald Coast of Florida, this list of 52 RV parks is tailored for RV travelers seeking campgrounds that help them get away from the stresses of everyday life.

Each park on the list boasts unique qualities that make it a special vacation destination. At Normandy Farms Family Campground in Foxboro, Massachusetts, families can participate in an Easter egg hunt, a Mother's Day weekend and Fourth of July celebration. In Warrens, Wisconsin, the staff organizes themed activity weeks, such as Wild West Week and Yogi's Birthday Week. Some RV parks create a whimsical environment.

Regardless of where families stay, it's apparent that this demographic will only get bigger. Over the past few years, RV buyers in the 35-to-54 age group have posted the largest ownership growth, outpacing so-called "empty nesters," according to the RVIA. And as more families realize that RVing gives them the flexibility to take quick getaways that don't interfere with busy family schedules, more families are bound to hit the road.
