Top Snowbird Parks Selected by the Good Sam RV Travel Guide

Jan Snowbird 186159854The Good Sam RV Travel Guide and Campground Directory has released its list of Top Snowbird Parks for 2014. These select Sun Belt RV parks stand out for their amenities and accommodations for winter travelers seeking fun in the sun.

Located across the warm-weather band that stretches from California to the southeast, each of the Top Snowbird Parks offers activities, services and comforts tailored to travelers who have trekked across a continent—sometimes as far as 3,000 miles—and often stay in their snowbird roosts for months at a time.

Some of the list’s highlights: 
• RV parks on the list accommodate snowbird travelers with luxuries that include pools, spas, fitness centers or golf courses.

• Snowbird parks generally cultivate vibrant winter communities that offer social events, classes and tours to surrounding attractions.

• The snowbird parks on the list represent a wide variety of ecosystems and cultures, from the lowland coastal areas of Florida to the high deserts of California and Arizona.

Choosing the Parks
The editors and consultants of the Good Sam RV Travel Guide and Campground Directory chose the list of Snowbird Parks from the annual publication’s database of 8,000 private parks.

Every month, the Good Sam RV Travel Guide and Campground Directory releases a list of Top Parks in a range of categories. Click here for a roundup of Top Parks by month.

In addition to comprehensive listings of RV parks and campgrounds across North America, the Good Good Sam RV Travel Guide and Campground Directory features ravel itineraries, helpful maps and informative tips that RVers need for a journey anywhere in North America.

Facts About Snowbirds
• Over 1 million RVers make the trek south to the Sun Belt every winter, more than the population of Austin, Texas.

• Snowbirds follow vertical travel patterns. Snowbirds who spend winter in the southeast generally hail from the Northeast regions of the U.S. and Canada. Travelers who winter in America’s Southwest, likewise, hail from the Pacific Northwest.

• Snowbird migration dramatically alters the demographics of some winter communities. For example, the population of Yuma, Arizona, grows from 60,000 to more than 120,000 when snowbird season rolls around.

• In Texas, RVers who stay during winter are often known as “Winter Texans,” not Snowbirds.

• A number of RV shows—like the Florida RV SuperShow, held every January—cater largely cater to RV snowbirds looking to upgrade their vehicles.

    You may be dissing a deserving park in Higlands, TX, because Wekiva Falls is already listed in your Florida parks!
