Celebrate in style with these RV trips for Memorial Day

May 18, 2015

The long Memorial Day weekend is fast approaching. That extra day off makes it a popular weekend for people to enjoy their favorite outdoor activities, and on top of everything else the weather across the country is generally super pleasant by this time of year. Combine all of those things, and you have the perfect chance to go on one of these incredible RV trips for Memorial Day.

An RV trip is a great way to discover and explore a new location. You’re never far from modern amenities and have the ability to comfortably go just about anywhere. Here are 3 great RV trips for Memorial Day:

Mount Rushmore, South Dakota


What better way to spend a patriotic holiday than at one of our country’s most famous national memorials? Mount Rushmore is a must-see destination for everyone. Simply imagining the manpower and effort that it took to create is astounding.

There are several RV parking locations in the area including, KOA’s Custer / Mount Rushmore and Mount Rushmore KOA at Palmer Gulch. Don’t miss the evening lighting ceremony at Mount Rushmore during your visit!

Devils Tower, Wyoming


For an out-of-this world camping experience just take your RV across I-90 from Mount Rushmore to Devils Tower National Monument in Wyoming. Devils Tower was the first ever National Monument dedicated in 1906, and was also featured in Steven Speilberg’s Close Encounters of the Third Kind. There’s nothing else in the world like seeing the geologic formation rise out of the rolling prairie, and you can camp right next door at the Devil’s Tower KOA campground.

Crater Lake National Park, Oregon

You would be hard pressed to find a more beautiful place to visit in the continental United States than Crater Lake National Park in Oregon. Crater Lake is the deepest lake in the United States and the seventh deepest lake in the entire world. The stunning blue color of the water will undoubtedly leave you impressed. There are plenty of activities in the area, but the view is enough to keep you entertained for your entire visit. Stay at the Klamath Falls KOA while visiting Crater Lake National Park.

Blue Ridge Parkway, North Carolina and Virginia

For people who prefer to stay on the move during RV trips, the Blue Ridge Parkway is one of the best places to visit. The twisting and turning roads offer solitude and stunning vistas. When the family needs a break, there are plenty of places to park the RV and stretch your legs or partake in numerous outdoor activities. This might just become an annual Memorial Day trip for your family! If you want to spend a few days int he area, stay at one of these great KOA locaitons Lynchburg NW / Blue Ridge Parkway KOA or the Fancy Gap / Blue Ridge Parkway KOA.

Any one of these RV trips for Memorial Day will give you a great break from your busy or hectic life and allow you to enjoy the long weekend to the fullest. Have fun out there and drive safely!
