Renting an RV is one of the best ways to experience a location without being restricted to a particular area.

If you don't like the RV campground you're staying at, you can always move elsewhere.

Depending on the RV you rent (try RV for sale Canada), you can get a full kitchen equipped with a fridge, stove, oven, and more. 

The RV’er has many options for things to do.

Outdoor activities include hiking, fishing, camping, golfing, cycling, kayaking, canoeing, and even rock climbing.

Indoors, there are crafts and line dancing and cooking to capture the interest and imagination of the RV’er.

Most RV parks and campgrounds offer a variety of activities. And of course, sightseeing in the local area is a favorite pastime.

Here are four things to do in your brand new RV.

1. Doing Nothing

That's right; the number one activity of RV’ers is doing absolutely nothing.

This could be taking a nap, sitting under the awning, watching a campfire burn, reading a book, watching other campers, etc.

It's great fun. You should try it sometime. There's nothing better than having nowhere to go and all day to get there! 

2. Clubhouse

Many RV parks and campgrounds have clubhouses or activity centers.

Check the schedule to see if the park you’re in has any scheduled events that you can take advantage of during your rainy stay.

Many of today’s campgrounds are destinations in and of themselves, offering a wide range of getaway activities that go beyond the standard swimming pools and camp stores.

Campgrounds located near popular tourist destinations frequently offer shuttle transportation to and from town. 

3. S’mores

A crackling campfire + warm, gooey treats = instant smiles. Set up a s’mores bar or pie iron station and let everyone assemble their dessert.

There are tons of easy pie iron dessert recipes. Gather everyone around the fire to share their favorite activities of the day while making treats.

4. Geocaching

Geocaching is super popular. It’s a giant scavenger hunt on wheels, how fun!

You will use clues and GPS coordinates to find small hidden objects in a box.

When you find the box, you will take the item the previous group left, sign the book to let others know who was there, and leave your own item for the next group to get there.

Many national parks have official geocaches setup, but you don’t need to go to a national park to enjoy this fun activity.

There are thousands of geocaches all over the United States if you do some searching on the web.
