Average RV Campground Rates: How Much to Expect Per Night 

Most RVers will want to sleep over at campgrounds for at least some of their stay, which means budgeting for the rates. Depending on how much you’ll spend, you might choose to scale back on the campgrounds and sleep out for free in a Walmart parking lot or a church lot. How much does an RV campground stay cost on average?

The average cost of staying overnight at an RV campground is $25. Some campgrounds offer cheaper rates, like $20 and under, and others are luxury campgrounds that are costlier, sometimes up to $70 or $120 a night.

Of course, factors such as where in the country you’re traveling also influence what you’ll spend on a campground.Another factor that will contribute to the rate is the type of campsite. For example, a site with full hook-ups or ocean/lake front is going to cost more than a site with no hookups or view..

In today’s article, we’ll go through every state we could find rates for and highlight several campgrounds in each state (and their prices) so you can get a better feel for how much money to budget!

Tips Before Making Reservations

Before we get into each state, let’s quickly touch on a few important factors to consider before making your RV camping reservations. It’s always a good idea to thoroughly go through the campground’s website or call them to ensure your trip goes smoothly.

Some questions you’ll want to get answered before you book.

  1. Does the campsite allow for pets?
  2. Do they have any group discounts or off-season discounts available?
  3. How many campers are allowed per site?
  4. Are there any other expenses associated with the reservation?
  5. Is there a limit to the length of the RV? Check out “Choosing the Ideal RV Length for Fitting into Campgrounds.”
  6. Are there full-time campers living on the premises?
