Located across North America, extended-stay RV parks provide guests with all the amenities needed to enjoy a long vacation in one place. While some RV parks put strict limits on how long guests can stay, many parks cater to seasonal visitors, even providing special sections for long-term guests.

Snowbird parks commonly embrace long-term guests, as more than 1 million RVers trek to the Sunbelt every year to spend their winters away from the snow.

However, parks like Brookhollow RV Park in Kelso remain open all year and give guests a chance to enjoy the Pacific Northwest all four seasons.

RV parks that accommodate RVers for long periods give guests a reason to stay. Ocean Lakes RV Resort in Myrtle Beach has a church, 12,000-square-foot market, bicycle rentals and a recreational building. The resort’s 12-month activity calendar features events like a family scavenger hunt, entertainment and a New Year’s Eve Party.

At Sun Vista RV Resort in Yuma, guests have few reasons to leave the premises. Amenities include in-park hair stylists, massage therapists, ballroom dancing classes and regular entertainment. Guests have access to locked mail boxes and free forwarding services and can get toned at the park’s two-story fitness center.
