You have your RV ready to hit the road, but do you know your destination? When it comes to RV travel hot spots, Yellowstone National Park and the Grand Canyon are undoubtedly two of the nation’s most popular locations, and two places RV veterans have probably visited more than once. Whether you prefer exploring the outdoors or relaxing at your RV campground by the lake, here are five underrated travel hot spots to try for your next RV adventure!


Mohican State Park

Nestled near Mansfield, Ohio, Mohican State Park offers a wide variety of outdoor activities that will bring you closer to the beautiful 1,100-acre Mohican State Park and its neighboring 4,525-acre state forest. Enjoy boating, fishing, golf, horseback riding, hiking, and the many campgrounds and parks that line the Mohican River. Not a canoeing or boating expert? Grab a tube at Mohican Adventures and enjoy a 4-5 hour float down the river!

Upper Peninsula of Michigan 

If you are looking for pure nature and untouched wilderness, the Upper Peninsula of Michigan is a must for your RV travel checklist! Being a largely underdeveloped and rugged area, the Upper Peninsula offers more RV sites and campgrounds than hotels, making this a definite RV-friendly destination. Get lost in the many acres of the Upper Peninsula’s parks, such as Tahquamenon Falls State Park, or venture out onto Lake Michigan with the famous Pictured Rock Cruises. If you want to attempt a winter RV getaway, the Upper Peninsula has been noted as one of the best places to snowmobile as well.

Tybee Island, Georgia

Need a southern beach getaway everyone will love? Pack up the family and head to Tybee Island, Georgia! While Tybee Island offers a variety of hotels and bed and breakfasts, RV travelers and campers are more than welcome to set up and enjoy the natural ocean breeze of Tybee. Other activities to enjoy on Tybee Island include shopping, beachside attractions, watersports, tours, historical sites, and much more!

California Wine Country

The California Wine Country promises an RV adventure filled with culture, food, wine, and endless good times! Whether you choose to explore Napa Valley, Sonoma Valley, or both, there is something to satisfy everyone’s tastes. Foodies can relax in charming restaurants and wine establishments while shoppers and museum-goers will find delight in a variety of specialty stores and historical attractions. Even outdoor adventurers will find pleasure in wine country trekking, biking, hiking, and golfing. What’s more, RV parks are often in walking distance from the main areas and attractions!


If you are looking for something different than your usual beach or lake destination, bundle up for an Alaskan adventure! With many quality RV parks and a plethora of gorgeous scenery, Alaska provides endless adventures for lovers of culture, history, and the outdoors. Take a Matanuska Glacier hike, watch the Northern Lights in Fairbanks, or visit one of the many state parks, conservation centers, and historical Alaska attractions.
