Many travelers assume that adventures in the American Southwest need to involve trips to the Grand Canyon, desert excursions and visits to major landlocked cities. Although, the Southwest offers plenty of options for travelers seeking getaways by the water too. In fact, there are some unbelievable places in the Southwest to embark on unforgettable boating or sailing adventures.
The following are some of our favorite places to park our Airstream campers and venture out onto the water for fun-filled ocean and lake excursions.
Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, Arizona
The Glen Canyon National Recreation Area is located in Arizona and Utah and offers some of the area’s best boating on scenic Lake Powell. The calm and crystal-clear lake creates a water-filled playground for boaters, wakeboarders, water skiers, kayakers, fishermen and all water sports enthusiasts. And if you feel like staying dry for a day, the recreation area offers some of the most scenic hiking and mountain biking trails in the country.
Corpus Christi, Texas
Corpus Christi, Texas, is a Gulf of Mexico getaway that’s ideal for Airstream and all RV travelers. Whether you’re hoping to head out deep sea fishing, set sail in the area’s gorgeous bays or simply boat back and forth between the town’s numerous shopping and dining districts, Corpus Christi offers an escape that’s geared toward water and boat lovers. You don’t even have to bring your own vessel on your trip to this city by the sea, because there are plenty of companies offering sailing lessons, boat tours, fishing excursions, kayak adventures and numerous other ways for you to get out on the water.
Castiac Lake, California
Many RV travelers head straight to California’s oceanfront campgrounds, but the state is home to a number of lakes that offer a more relaxing way to sail and boat. Castiac Lake is an 8,000-acre lake located just five miles from the town of Castiac. The area offers plenty of campgrounds and water activities ranging from boating and water skiing to fishing and swimming. A convenient boat ramp and boat rentals make combining your boating lifestyle with your Airstream lifestyle a breeze.
