Is your family geared towards relaxing by the water or setting up camp near attractions and amusement parks? Maybe you want to stock up on board games you can take along with you!Whichever you prefer,plan what activities your family would like to partake in over the long weekend. It can help narrow down the perfect campground location as well as give everyone something to be excited about and look forward to.

Be sure to check fluids and tire pressure, make sure all your systems are in working order and ensure you have working fire extinguishers and fire detectors too.
