We took our popup out 2 wks ago for a camping trip. Though we did have fun, both my husband and I discovered that we are ready to camp in a less "rustic" atmosphere. We plan on purchasing a TT in time for the camping season next year.

My question is this: Does anyone know of either a website or publication that shows "Family Friendly" RV parks/resorts for families?

We moved here to AZ late last year and were disappointed to discover the lack of "any age range" type RV parks/resorts. Most here cater to the over 55+ crowd.

I would love to be able to have some reference, either printed or online, to refer to that has information/lists of family oriented RV parks/resorts across the USA. Any help is appreciated.

There is, of course, the Jellystone camp parks. These are everywhere like the KOA parks. Every KOA that I have been to has activities for families. Since they are franchised I guess they could vary according to what the owners choose to do.
You could get the Woodall's guide and the Good Sam guide and the Trailer Life RV park guide. They usually indicate if they have a pool or other amenities for the family.

A the problem for us all ... Is it a RV Park, RV Resort or Campground .... guess it is up to the owners what to call the places .... The best bet is still to view their web site and make sure that it has the amenities that you want and you can usually tell by any pictures they display what it looks like. All the KOA's and Jellystone parks (as far as I know) cater to families and kids ...

I was looking in Woodall's for sites to visit in the Pine Top / Show Low area but they appeared to ALL be over 55. We love to get out to the mountains and away from some of the heat, but Northern NM is getting a little repetitve for us. Any good places in Central/Eastern AZ that anyone can recommend?

There is Fool Hollow lake just outside of Show Low. They have fully developped sites.

We tend to stick with public campgrounds. Even though the girls most likely won't be camping with us anymore (18 yo), we still refuse to finance discrimination. Yes, I know it's their choice as campground owner's to decide who they want to stay but it's our money so we get to decide where we spend it at.
