Tips for taking your motorhome to a national park

Motorhomes have become an increasingly popular way to explore and stay in national parks in New Windsor, NY and across the country. From the majestic peaks of the Rocky Mountains to the sandy beaches of Florida, there are beautiful landscapes for everyone to enjoy. But taking your motorhome to a national park can be intimidating if you’re unprepared. Here are some tips from us at Windgate Insurance Agency Inc. for making sure your trip is enjoyable and successful:

  1. Plan ahead: Before heading out, research the park you’re going to and check with the local visitor center about regulations, fees, and safety issues. It’s also important to familiarize yourself with any campsite rules to know what amenities will be available during your stay.
  2. Pack provisions: Ensure you bring all necessary items like food, water, supplies for cooking, toiletries, and camping gear like sleeping bags and chairs. If possible, stock up on non-perishable items so you don’t have to worry about restocking during your stay. 
  3. Check your vehicle: Ensure your motorhome is in good shape before venturing on the open road. Ensure that everything is working correctly – from brakes and lights to tires and fluids – so that you don’t run into any problems while driving through or staying at a national park campground. 
  4. Be mindful of wildlife: National parks are home to many creatures, big and small! When traveling through or camping in a national park, never leave food out or unattended, as it may attract animals trying to get into your RV or campsite looking for food.
