Finding suitable campgrounds to park the RV after a long day of driving is an important aspect to account for on your trip. The primary locations where you could start your search comprise of the Australian campground directories. In general, as within the directories you will find listings of the special parking spaces available on your itinerary, it is a good idea to have a pre-made list with you all the time. Overall, having a recent and updated map along with a list of campgrounds where you can crash for the night (or when you are very tired) will make the RV travelling trip simpler and more enjoyable.
Another great location to search for campground listing across Australia is the internet. In fact, because every day more and more campgrounds become active online, the online environment can be regarded as an invaluable resource for RV travelers. In addition to learning where you can find a safe place to park the RV, nowadays travelers can even make reservations and pay online directly on the campgrounds’ websites. A further advantage of searching for an RV camp over the internet is that chances are the online listings are likely more recent than the printed directories. As a side note, before making reservations make sure you read the fine print and their cancellation policies to avoid unpleasant situations.
It can happen that you are tired and want to stop for the night, but you do not have any RV camp reservations at any sites in your vicinity. The best approach would be to check out the local or state tourist agencies to learn more about the vacant places in the area. Besides helping you get a good place to rest for the night, the tourist agencies’ listings can provide viable alternatives for your future trips as well. Generally speaking, the best accommodations (campgrounds and others) you could ever have are those obtained via recommendations made by friends and family.
Even though the universal impression is that RVs are for retired couples, the reality is that more and more young families have started to take on the RV lifestyle. Because some RV camp owners are used to certain types of customers and their specific needs, some sites are very clear about not allowing children on their premises. A simple way to figure out if an RV campsite welcomes children is to search for the tag prices indicating expenses per family.
After going through the aforementioned sources and learning the names of the RV sites in the proximity of your routes, it is time to compare them and make reservations. Considering that most listed campgrounds provide an email, mail address and phone number, make sure that you contact them and find out about vacancy during the timeframe when you intend to schedule the trip. It is important to note that in the vast majority of cases, the payment for the reservation will need to arrive within a given time, as otherwise there is no guarantee the reservation will be kept. At the same time, in case you made reservations over the internet, you should print out a copy of the confirmation to prevent any issues upon arrival.
