Your Guide to RV Campgrounds for Adults Over 21

From glamping weekends for ladies only to summer camp for adults, the adults only camping craze is catching on. RV campgrounds have led this trend, with over-21 and over-50 campgrounds located across the country. If you long to find an RV camping destination where the kiddies can’t come along, our guide to adults only RV campgrounds is a good place to start.

Camping for adults only comes in a variety of styles. Let’s look at the most common options available for adults who prefer to camp without kids around.

Over-21 RV Resorts

The first type of adults only campground is the over-21 RV resort, where activities and amenities cater to adult campers. A quick check of the what’s offered at Edge-O-Dells Resort in Wisconsin will give you a good idea of what’s out there. Guests there enjoy an on-site restaurant and bar with live music, a large pool with hot tub and quick access to the local casino. Special events like weekly Bike Nights keep the party atmosphere humming, a common theme for campgrounds that cater to the over-21 crowd.

If you’re hoping to find a more peaceful adults only setting,  Wild Duck Campground and RV Park in Maine’s Scarborough Marsh is a good example of an over-21 campground for nature lovers. This type of campground tends to be situated in pristine natural settings where outdoor recreation is easy to access.

No matter which style camper you are, you should be able to easily locate a no-kids-allowed campground to suit your fancy.

Over-50 RV Resorts

With so many seniors choosing full-time RV living, there’s been an explosion of over-50 campgrounds to meet their needs. From long-term campsites for snowbirds in states with mild winter weather to overnight camping for older campers on the move, RV resorts for seniors understand the needs of the over-50 set.

One of the ways these campgrounds attract a steady stream of RVers is by offering a range of amenities to appeal to active seniors or older campers who prefer to stay close to the campground, as well as retired campers who’ve chosen to pursue an ‘encore career’ while on the road. Cable television and wireless internet, exercise classes or facilities and venues for outdoor recreation such as golf, fishing and hiking nearby top the list of features seniors look for in an RV resort.

Need an example of what might be available if you’re one of the flood of older campers hitting the road?  Winterset RV Resort on Florida’s Gulf Coast keeps campers happy with an on-site wood shop, fitness center, business center and a full schedule of planned activities. They welcome both long-term ‘snowbirds’ and overnight campers fifty-five and over.

Where to Find Adults Only RV Campgrounds

Where can you find a campground that doesn’t allow kids? An easy way to start your search is by checking the online directories of RV clubs. Passport America and Good Sam members, for example, can search for adults only RV resorts and then add additional search filters to find the amenities they prefer.

A simple internet search for “RV campgrounds for adults only” or a similar search phrase will also yield many pages of options to explore. You can narrow down your search online by adding the state or city you’d like to visit.

Once you’ve found the place that sounds perfect for your next RV camping vacation, be sure to read their Rules and Regulations page so you’ll know if there are restrictions on things like pets and under-age visitors. Check their schedule of activities and outdoor recreation options. You may find you can enjoy a well-rounded vacation taking advantage of what’s available free for RV park visitors.

Camping without kids can be a nice break for parents or an RV-lifestyle choice. Whatever your reason for choosing a child-free campground (or seniors-only resort), we think you’ll be pleasantly surprised at what’s available near your chosen destination.

    Thanks for the article. We are long time RVers, but intend to go full time in just a few more years. Stringing together adult only, lovely camping locations is going to be an ongoing activity.

    We’ll be in a big 5er with a HDT doing the pulling, so that will also be a factor.
    Have you found a comprehensive directory of 50+ resorts?

    Thanks
