5 of the World’s Most Scenic RV Resorts
One of the great benefits of RV travel is that you can choose your travel experience to fit your needs. The budget conscience or adventurous RVer may find themselves staying at a remote boondocking site in the mountains or a free campsite on the beach. Those with more moderate needs can stay at any of the many great private or park campgrounds located throughout the world. For those with the desire for opulence or to experience truly exotic regions of the world, there are also many options that come in the form of exotic RV resorts. Here we will look at 5 of the most exotic RV resorts around the world.
USA – Normandy Farms Family Camping Resort, Foxboro, MA
There are several high-end exotic RV parks in the United States to choose from. Most of them tailor their services to a very narrow subset of the RVing community. Some are restricted to new Class A RVs over a certain length, others are owner-occupied and some are less family-friendly than others. Normandy Farms is none of these things. Instead, it is a family-friendly exotic RV resort that just about anyone can enjoy. In fact, it is also open to tent campers and they have a number of cabins and yurts available too.
The facilities are first-rate here and include some things that you won’t find at other parks including a BMX style bike park, two softball fields, pickleball, fitness center, business center, creative arts center and much more. They also have indoor and outdoor pools, Jacuzzis, saunas and a wellness center where you can enjoy a relaxing massage.
The park is located between Boston and Cape Cod so there are numerous opportunities for activities outside the park as well. There are guided trips offered by the park and they can assist you on planning trips on your own as well. All in all, this park is one of the premier family destinations in the USA.
Canada – Boulton Creek Campground, Banff
When it comes to exotic locations in Canada, few can match let alone surpass the Banff area. Boulton Creek Campground is the best RV park in the area. While it is a park (Peter Lougheed Provincial Park) campground, it provides excellent facilities and great access to the surrounding beauty of the region. It also tends to be significantly less crowded than other campgrounds in the area. You won’t find swimming pools, tennis courts or massage facilities here, just good solid hookups and a great place to park. The real exotic experience comes from the surroundings. The Banff area is in the core of the Canadian Rockies with some of the most beautiful scenery in the world. There is also world-class mountain biking, hiking and outdoor adventuring here. If that sounds like your idea of an exotic getaway then Boulton Creek Campground should be high on your list.
