Each year during the holiday, we fill our loved ones stockings with knick-knacks and doo-dads, and each year our drawers and closets get more and more packed with stuff.
If the RVer in your life is feeling overwhelmed with gadgets and gear, give them an experience they can enjoy in their rig, like exploring a new National Park or camping somewhere out of the ordinary.
In this post, we are highlighting four incredible gift experiences that will help your RVer have their next cherished adventure.
Harvest Host Membership
- Cost: $49/year membership
- Boondock at wineries and farms across the country
- Enjoy local foods and camp in unique locations
Is your favorite RVer growing tired of crowded campgrounds and busy destinations? Harvest Hosts is a unique program that lets members stay overnight at participating wineries, breweries, farms and more at no extra cost (members are encouraged to make a purchase of appreciation at the places they visit).
The program includes over 600 locations across the U.S. and Canada. Most locations offer dry camping with no hookups, so campers need to be self-contained for their stay. However, the opportunity to explore off the beaten path and enjoy fresh food and beverages from small, local businesses is well worth it.
America the Beautiful Annual Pass
- Cost: $80 for annual pass ($20 for seniors)
- Access to National Parks and other federal recreation areas
- Covers fees for pass holder and passengers in their vehicle
America’s National Parks are the country’s crown jewels. From the rocky Atlantic coastline of Acadia to the towering trees of Redwood, the parks offer endless amazements and natural treasures.
An America the Beautiful Pass provides one year of access to all federal recreation lands, including the National Parks, National Forests, National Wildlife Refugees and more. The pass covers entry and day use fees for the pass holder, their vehicle and up to four adult passengers (depending on location regulations). If your RVer loves to explore the outdoors, an America the Beautiful pass will be their ticket to adventure.
