Easter is only a few months away, and there’s no better time than now to start planning that Easter RV trip! This is a great time to be with family, eat delicious dishes and enjoy the outdoors. It falls a bit late this year, but Easter is still a sign of the start of Spring and the camping season. Not everyone celebrates Easter the traditional way, (looking at you, RVUSA readers) so that’s why we wanted to create a fun list of campgrounds for readers to enjoy for the holiday.
Stone Mountain State Park, Georgia
At a whopping 3,200 acres of all-natural beauty, the Stone Mountain State Park is a great place to spend Easter weekend because it offers hundreds of campsites on top of Stone Mountain. Their sunrise service began way back in 1944, before the land surrounding Stone Mountain was actually owned by Georgia. It was Lucille Lanford, a member of Stone Mountain’s First United Methodist Church, that suggested the church’s youth climb up to the tip top of the mountain on the morning of Easter to watch the sunrise. It is now a tradition and participants today can catch a cable car to reach the top.
Wilderness Campground, Wisconsin
Join the rest of the campers at Wilderness Campground and “SPRING into Camping” on Easter Weekend for only $30 a night! Starting April 19ththrough the 21st, the campground has tons of activities planned to keep you busy all weekend.
