I'm getting excited because the weather is getting nicer by the minute and I'm looking forward to getting the camper out and doing some trips. There's nothing better than getting the RV out to a spot and enjoying the days attractions, and nights by the campfire.

So in my opinion here's my top 5 picks for spots to park your RV, or pitch your tent for a week or so and enjoy your vacation. These spots are family friendly too!

    Assateague Island Camping

    This is my top choice by the way. If you are going to camp here, I recommend Oceanside Loop A the spot next to the bathrooms. You'll have to go self contained as there is no electric or water hook ups on each site.The fresh water fill up spickett is near the bathrooms so when you need to fill your fresh water, the tap is hose reachable. No need to carry your fresh water caddy. bring your solar battery charger and with the absence of trees on the beach, your battery be charged up without issue. You'll want OFF with you to fend off the mosquitos and deer flys, and you'll want to bring a 3300 watt generator to run your A/C unit on the overnight. Other wise, you're all good. LP taks can filled right down the road.

    There are wild horses roaming the grounds and the beach is amazing. It's a great time for your whole family, just a short drive from the Ocean City Maryland Boardwalk!

They're fun to find and the whole family can mine for them at the Herkimer Diamond Mines, part of this KOA.  Enjoy a canal boat ride with Lil' Diamond III at the Herkimer Marina. Go through a lock that lifts you up and down 20 feet on the Erie Canal. Cherish your heroes at Cooperstown's Baseball Hall of Fame.
