RV Camping in National Parks

Thinking about stopping at the National Parks? Then this book is a must! It is a complete guide to camping at the National Parks! Every camper needs this in their own personal library.

The Best Fiction RV Books

While non-fiction is wonderful and helpful, sometimes you just want to dive into a good fiction novel and escape into a made up world in your head. These perfect for the camping enthusiast, these books will inspire imagination and have you turning pages until the very end!

The Wild Inside

Who doesn’t love a good mystery? This book is a thrilling and suspenseful crime novel set in Glacier National Park.

The Call of the Wild

The Call of the Wild is a true classic. By one of my personal favorite authors, Jack London, this riveting novel about a dog thrown into the brutal life of the Alaskan Gold Rush will have you on the edge of your seat the whole time.

White Fang

Another Jack London classic, White Fang follows the adventures of a domesticated dog, kidnapped and thrust into the wild where he has to rediscover his wild ancestry in order to survive. This is considered a companion novel to Call of the Wild and I highly recommend you read both of them.

Into The Wild

So it is debatable if this book is fiction or non-fiction. It is based on an essay and true life of renowned camper Christopher McCandless. This is said to be a biography, but many say the truth is quite stretched. Either way, this is an amazing story of a man who gave up his suburban life to travel the Alaskan wilds. Heart-wrenching and tragic, this is one you won’t want to put down.

A Walk in the Woods

One of the more humorous books on this list, Walk in the Woods follows an unlikely camper taking you on his through-hike of the Appalachian Trail. Sound familiar? This was recently made into a movie staring Nick Nolte and Robert Redford!
