RV Hot Spots to Hit this Spring
There is nothing that compares to the freedom of the open road, especially when following it takes you to some of the most magnificent scenery and interesting places in the United States. I am going to show you few places that will make you salivate and want to see more. I love this great country, and I know you will, too! Enjoy!
The Black Hills of South Dakota
As an RV road trip destination, no place can surpass the Black Hills of South Dakota for scenic beauty and variety of activities. If you set up a base camp somewhere in the hills, you can head back East on US 90 and visit Wall Drug and the Badlands National Park. You can also spend time at the Sioux Museum and Stavekirk Church in Rapid City. At any time of the year Mount Rushmore and the Crazy Horse Memorial are great to see, and in early August, you can go to the annual and notorious motorcycle rally that takes place in Sturgis. Custer State Park has four lodges, ten campgrounds, six hiking trails, four lakes for fishing and boating, a summer theater, two small museums and even a small church for Sunday worship. Spend time there panning for gold, hiking or attending a barn dance, but whatever you do, make sure you visit the Black Hills and leave plenty of time for enjoying all this area has to offer.
Yellowstone National Park
If conditions are right, you can drive across Beartooth Pass where the 14,000 foot elevation will produce breathtaking views of the Grand Tetons and other mountain ranges that hover above Yellowstone. Plan to arrive early in the day so that you can get a campsite. Yellowstone National Park is huge, scenic and offers only limited facilities in its campgrounds, but it is worth visiting. You will want to visit Old Faithful and the Old Faithful Inn, the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, the geyser basin and the Paint Pots. If you like to fish, there is no better place to do so. Montana is the fly fishing capital of the world! Hike if you dare, but be careful about the wild bears that abound in the park.
Glacier National Park
Although it entails some extra driving, seeing Glacier National Park is worthwhile. The park is relatively small, but you will want to make the drive across Going To The Sun Highway, which is beautiful as well as treacherous. If your RV is too long, you will have to leave it parked at the entrance and retrieve it once you return. Never try to make this trip in your travel unit unless it is short enough, and you are a fearless driver! There are 14,000-foot drop-offs with no guard rails and the road is narrow and windy.
Las Vegas, Nevada
Every person should visit this wild city at least once in his lifetime. It, too, is the “Wild West”, but in Vegas, that term means something entirely different than it does in Glacier National Park! Las Vegas is an entertainment mecca that also houses Hoover Dam, Lake Mead, and Red Rock Canyon, all of which are definitely
