Plan early for campground reservations!

Tired of the winter? It’s not too early to think about summer camping! Making reservations early can ensure that your favorite campground Young couple RVing at a Michigan RV Parkwill have a site available for you. Follow these tips to get a great spot at your favorite state or private campground:
  • Check with the campground to find out how far in advance you can reserve a campsite, and book as soon as possible.
  • Be aware that holiday weekends such as Memorial Day, July 4th and Labor Day are the season's most popular times for camping, thus making it harder to get a camping site.
  • Try to arrive on a weekday, that way a week-long reservation allows you to take advantage of staying throughout the weekend.

Whether you're a would-be or a seasoned RVer, the reasons to buy are endless: family bonding, affordable getaways, or spontaneous road trips, to name a few. Here are some of the top reasons why there's never been a better time to buy:
  • In today's economy, there are great deals available on new RV models.
  • Financing is readily available for qualified borrowers.

  • RVs are more fuel efficient than ever.
  • Even when fuel costs are up, RVers can enjoy the same experience closer to home to save on fuel.
  • The sooner you buy, the sooner you can enjoy years of savings and adventures.
