Top RV Parks for Food Lovers
Don’t go RVing on an empty stomach. Check out the Good Sam RV Travel Guide and Campground Directory’s list of Top RV Parks for Food Lovers for 2014 to make sure you satisfy your hearty appetite. The RV parks on this list are located in regions known for distinctive local cuisine or in areas that host popular food festivals, so you’ll never be far from a virtual smorgasbord of culinary styles and tastes.
+ For some RV parks, providing excellent culinary service is part of the customer experience. At Michigan’s Thunder Bay Resort, guests can partake in Elk Viewing Dinner Ride Package, in which gourmet dinner is cooked on two antique wood cook stoves and served in a rustic setting.
+ Some resorts cultivate their own food. Nevada’s Wine Ridge RV Resort for example, serves vintages produced from the vineyard and winery located on the property. In addition, the resort’s Symphony Restaurant has earned five-star ratings in a number of food guides.
+ Still other parks offer the full resort experience. At Pechanga RV Resort in Temecula, California, RVers can play a round of golf on the Journey golf course and stop by the award winning Journey’s End restaurant for a delicious meal while enjoying scenic views of the course
