The Best Summer Family Camping Destinations in the Southwest
The summer camping season is all about spending time with friends and family in the great outdoors. The American Southwest is packed with some of the best family camping destinations in the country. Whether you’re looking for a beach escape, relaxing woodsy getaway or a trip to one of America’s most iconic wonders, there’s an RV destination in the Southwest waiting for you to visit this summer.
Jamaica Beach RV Park — Texas
There’s nothing quite like being on the ocean in the summertime, and the Jamaica Beach RV Park on Galveston Island is one of the best places to soak in the sun. It’s one of the newest RV parks on the island, offering breathtaking views of the Gulf of Mexico and the Galveston Bay area. The campground features 111 RV sites with full hookups, mini golf, tether ball, a splash pad, bounce house, adult pool with swim-up bar, hot tub, family pool and summer movies. Best of all, the beach and gorgeous Gulf of Mexico are directly across the street.
Cave Springs Campground — Sedona
Families who enjoy hikes in the woods, bird watching, sandstone peaks and fishing in streams will love the Cave Springs Campground in Arizona’s Oak Creek Canyon. The campsites are shady, nearby hiking trails are plentiful and Slide Rock State Park (with its famous swimming hole) is just minutes away.
The campground features 82 sites and coin-operated showers, grills, vault toilets and drinking water. There are no sites with hookups, but motorhomes and travel trailers up to 36-feet long are always welcome.
North Rim Campground — Grand Canyon Village
There’s no summer adventure quite like one to the iconic Grand Canyon. The North Rim Campground is located at Grand Canyon National Park, so you’re always seconds from one of the world’s most magnificent wonders. Adventurous hikers will love the location for its easy access to the 14.2-mile-long trail that leads into the canyon.
The park doesn’t offer sites with hookups, but it always welcomes RV campers. A dump station, restrooms, campsite grills, showers and coin-operated laundry machines are available for campers as well. Fees for the North Rim Campground are $18 to $25 per night in addition to the usual park fee. Be sure to reserve your campsite as far ahead of time as possible, because the Grand Canyon is even more popular in the summer months.
