Top 9 Spring Camping Destinations
Though the weather can be unpredictable, spring is an ideal time to camp. First, you’re likely eager to travel after the long winter months. Second, the crowds are lighter during the shoulder seasons, meaning you may have an easier time obtaining reservations. Togo RV rounded up 9 spring camping destinations for inspiration. Head to the Sun Belt if you’re seeking reliably good weather. Utah’s Canyonlands RV Resort & Campground is surrounded by state and national parks and Arizona’s Cattail Cove State Park puts you right on the shore of Lake Havasu.

Are You Ready to Dewinterize?
With warmer nights and longer days ahead, spring camping season is upon us. Before you head out on that first trip, you need to dewinterize your RV. Togo RV’s guide to dewinterizing outlines the process. Learn more about getting your interior and exterior ready for spring camping adventures, including what to do with your plumbing system, batteries, tires, and more. Also, check the gear list to ensure you have everything you need before you start dewinterizing.
Roadtrippers Amplifies Diverse Travel Voices
Racing away from wildfires, chasing a new life during a world pandemic, and facing mountain roads for the first time—these are just some of the stories told in Roadtrippers’ new Voices from the Road storytelling project. The ongoing series shares stories of diverse adventures and amplifies underrepresented voices. Instead of focusing on traditional snapshots of perfect escapades, Voices from the Road displays a more realistic view of travel, where things occasionally go wrong. While these accounts include the breakdowns (both emotional and mechanical), bad weather, and miscellaneous discomforts, they also include the triumphs, successes, and joys. Any road trip worth having is bound to be full of both.

NPS Campgrounds Prepare for an Influx of Campers
Nationally, more than 8,500 campsites are available in national parks. As the summer of 2021 beckons, many are wondering whether these National Park Service (NPS) campgrounds are prepared for a rush of new campers. The COVID-19 pandemic has spurred interest in RVing as a safe travel alternative, and a new generation of campers is taking a look at these beloved campgrounds for their location and price. However, campsites built decades ago aren’t always able to accommodate modern rigs, and full-service amenities can be lacking. Hope is on the horizon, as the Great American Outdoors Act promises money to upgrade NPS facilities.
