Experience the Joy of RVing with Young Children: Top 10 Destinations

Traveling with young children in an RV is an excellent way to explore new places while maintaining a sense of home. With your “little house” on wheels, your children can sleep in the same bed every night, your bags only need to be unpacked once, and you always have access to a toilet, drinks, and snacks. But where should you go? Here are the top 10 most fun destinations for RVing with young children.

1. The United States

Unsurprisingly, the USA tops our list! In my opinion, Mid-America, particularly Yellowstone National Park, is the most beautiful part of the country. When asked about their favorite American holiday, my kids would likely choose Florida. This preference might be influenced by the presence of the world’s largest Disney Park.

2. Australia: A Family-Friendly RV Destination

Having explored both the east and west coasts of Australia, I can confidently say it’s a fantastic destination for RVing with young children. The climate is pleasant, the environment is clean, and there’s an abundance of beautiful sights to see and activities to do. Imagine the excitement on your kids’ faces as they spot koalas and kangaroos, or the awe-inspiring experience of sleeping in the outback under a starry sky like no other.

3. South Africa: A Wildlife Adventure for Kids

If your children are fascinated by wild animals, South Africa is the perfect destination! A large part of the country is malaria-free, so you won’t have to worry about malaria pills. While you can certainly explore South Africa by car, traveling by camper allows you to immerse yourself in nature.

4. New Zealand: A Camper-Friendly Nature Paradise

For those who appreciate breathtaking natural landscapes, New Zealand should be at the top of your bucket list. It’s not only a nature lover’s paradise but also very camper-friendly. Lonneke and her family have explored New Zealand by camper and have nothing but praise for the experience!

5. Argentina: An Emerging RV Destination

Argentina is a country that should be high on your bucket list for RVing with young children. The allure of seeing Patagonia in real life is irresistible. However, Argentina doesn’t have a large “camper scene” yet, which means there are fewer campsites and the ones that exist are pretty basic.

Now, let’s move on to a camper destination for the more adventurous traveler…

6. Norway: A Close-to-Home Adventure

Close to home and brimming with overwhelming natural beauty, that’s Norway for you! The proximity means you don’t have to splurge on expensive plane tickets. While Norway isn’t the cheapest of countries, the savings on your plane tickets make this destination potentially affordable even during the pricier school holidays.

7. Canada: A Paradise for Young RVers

Canada is a wonderful destination for RVing with young children. If you’re a fan of breathtaking nature, Canada, with its exceptionally beautiful national parks, should definitely be on your bucket list. It’s certainly on mine!

8. Discover Japan

Japan may seem like an unconventional choice, but it’s increasingly becoming a popular destination for camper trips. As a highly developed country, Japan is well-equipped for children. You’ll experience a unique blend of ancient traditions and high-tech, modern developments, making your visit truly memorable.

9. Explore Finland

Known as the land of a thousand lakes, Finland is a camper’s paradise that’s relatively close to home. You can rent a camper locally or drive one from the Netherlands. Finland, along with Sweden and Norway, follows the “everyone’s right” rule. This means you can camp anywhere, even on private property, for 24 hours. If you wish to extend your stay, you’ll need to seek the owner’s permission.

10. Experience Sweden

Sweden is a must-visit destination for RVing with young children. Like other Scandinavian countries, Sweden allows you to camp wherever you like. So, if you find a picturesque lake where your kids are having a blast, you can simply decide to stay the night. This flexibility offers a wonderful sense of freedom.
