As the last long weekend of the summer approaches, our anticipation is growing for Labor Day weekend RV trips. The crew at StowAway2.com has been thinking of our most memorable destinations. Convenience may drive your choice of weekend campsites, but here are a few suggestions from our staff that may take you on a new camping adventure.
Mesa Verde National Park, Colorado: If you’ve never been to Mesa Verde, add it to your bucket list. The park in southwest Colorado has so many positive attributes, it tops our recommendations. The air is dry and warm during the day but cools in the evening. Campsites are numerous. With 267 sites, the campground rarely fills. Each site has a table, bench and grill. Camping is open to tents, trailers and RVs, including 15 full-hookup RV sites with a reservation. And sightseeing in the park features cliff dwellings and abundant wildlife. Plus, a pancake breakfast is served during high season.
Toe River, North Carolina: This is a favorite of the locals in western North Carolina. Toe River Campground is well off the beaten path but the destination is so scenic and serene, its popularity is likely to grow. Situated on the Toe River, this small wooded paradise of campsites is accessible from two-lane highway west of Asheville, including one alternative route via the spectacular Blue Ridge Parkway. Twenty-two full-hookup RV sites are available, but call for a reservation because the park fills up quickly. Also, bring your tube! The river runs right through camp, and the floating is prime!
Del Norte Campground, California: If roughing it doesn’t scare you (no hookups!), then Del Norte Campground, also called Mill Creek Campground, is a top-notch destination. This park is situated in the heart of northern California’s redwood forest, which makes it a mythical place. Massive redwoods create a canopy over the entire park. It’s quiet and cool under the old growth, even during the summer months. Hiking trails loop around the campground, and nearby Crescent City is a quaint tourist destination, too. The natural setting in the camp is indescribably beautiful. Reservations are a must in season.
