Despite the stereotype of RVs as gas-guzzling, carbon-spewing behemoths, RVing is actually an environmentally friendly way to travel.
RV trips require drastically less fuel than air travel, and RV parks use far fewer resources than hotels or resorts. Some RV parks have upped the green ante by adopting earth-friendly practices ranging from recycling policies to solar panels, energy-efficient lighting and environmentally sound landscaping. To help recreational vehicle enthusiasts find RV parks that follow environmentally friendly practices, the editors and consultants of the Good Sam RV Travel Guide and Campground Directory have compiled a list of the top Green RV Parks.
Boasting RV parks from across North America, the list is tailored for RV travelers seeking campgrounds that adhere to an ecologically sound philosophy without sacrificing the comforts and conveniences RVers have come to expect in their travels. The Good Sam RV Travel Guide’s top green RV parks are:
Grand Canyon Railway RV Park, Williams, Ariz.; Bakersfield River Run RV Park, Bakersfield, Calif.; San Diego RV Resort-Sunland, La Mesa, Calif.
Going Green Over the past decade, RV parks across the country have taken great strides in terms of energy usage. Grand Canyon Railway RV Park, for example, relies on a large array of solar panels for electricity.
San Diego RV Resort in La Mesa, Calif., likewise embraces environmental initiatives that make it popular among guests.
