Spring is coming to Alberta, which means that everyone with RVs or motorhomes is beginning to think about what to do and where to go in the summer months. Of course, one of your best options is to explore Canada’s many wonderful parks and other natural beauties. If you are planning to visit several campsites this year, we at Happy Trails RV Inc. would like to recommend booking them as soon as possible, even if you’re not planning on hitting the road right away.
Here are just a few reasons that booking your campsites early is a great idea.
With RVs and motorhomes, you know that you’ll never be out of luck when it comes to a place to stay—you’re bringing your home with you! At the same time, to make sure that there are no mix-ups and that you have the best possible experience, you should carefully plan your itinerary early as spots in the most popular campsites fill up quickly. The time-frame in which you have to book your campsites in provincial parks vary from province to province and even from park to park, so the sooner you know what you want to do this season, the sooner you’ll be able to get the campsite you want.
Preparation is everything
One of the wonderful things about Canada is the variety of natural wonders we have available to us. When you book your campsite early, that gives you additional time to prepare to take advantage of everything that Canada has to offer. Of course, RVs and motorhomes should always be stocked with all the essentials you’ll need for a great time. When you plan your trip early, however, you’ll also be able to bring all the gear that isn’t necessarily essential but will allow you to do everything you want to at your destination. Is there a particularly famous fly-fishing river where you’re going? If you book a campsite early, you can be certain that you have the time to get all the appropriate gear (and maybe even practice a bit beforehand, if you need to).
Events are held all year
Another reason to book early is that special events are held at Canadian parks all year long. By doing all the necessary research and making reservations early, you can be sure you won’t miss great events that you didn’t even know existed.
At Happy Trails RV, we know that there are few disappointments quite like having to drive home early because you assumed there would be a campsite available at your destination. Booking early is essential for every seasoned traveler. Be sure to visit Alberta Parks and Go RVing Canada sites as a resource to make booking your trip easy! Before you go, you should be sure that your RVs and motorhomes are ready for the road.
