As the tides turn every single day during the COVID-19 pandemic, it can be difficult for RVers to find out accurate information during this time about what campgrounds or RV parks are open. Another challenge for RVers is that if they do find an RV park that is open, are they accepting new customers? As RVers that are either trying to get back home or are wanting to hunker down somewhere and wait out the storm, it may be difficult to navigate these waters at the moment.
Depending on what part of the country you are traveling in, finding a safe place to set up camp has proven to be a difficult task. If you are traveling through or around the Nashville area any time soon, we’ve got you covered!
Although most campgrounds are closed and will not re-open until mid-May or later, there are still some lights shining in the dark during this crazy time. There are still some privately owned RV parks that are open and accepting new guests.
Even if you’re not in the Nashville area, you can still easily find out what is open and closed in your area on CampgroundReviews.com. We’ve compiled data from almost 10,000 privately owned campgrounds and RV parks across North America and we are continuing to receive and update information. This information has also been implemented in the RV LIFE App as well as on our popular RV trip planner, RV LIFE Trip Wizard. These tools will also continue to update any campgrounds’ status.

Open campgrounds are still out there
If you must travel with your camper right now, or you’re out on the road and trying to make your way back home, get a game plan together. Doing a little research before embarking on your journey will make life a lot easier.
Of course, before you pull up to any RV park, get a phone number and make a direct call. Actually talk to someone to get a verbal verification before setting out, no matter what you read online. Make sure you have a place to go when you are out on the road with your rig! Stay safe and healthy on your journey.
