Caravan Sites | 3 Smart Considerations When Settling On A Caravan Park


When you travel on vacation in your caravan, you have several things to consider, especially if you have your family and pets in tow. With a multitude of caravan sites available across Australia, making a decision can seem daunting. This guide equips you with smart considerations when settling on a caravan park for your needs.  

Know The Features Offered At The Caravan Site

Many caravan sites offer different features, so you will need to finalise one based on your specific needs. For instance, if you have children, you'll want a playground and pool for entertainment. If you have pets, you may want to choose a pet-friendly site with facilities like a small pet park for your furry friends to play. If you don't have a toilet and bath facility in your caravan, you'll want to choose a place where shower facilities are available. If you want to be near the water, the river or beachfront caravan sites are ideal. If you're looking for cooking facilities, then make sure the caravan site has barbecue pits. Keep in mind that the caravan sites with more features are bound to be more expensive than others.

Consider Whether You Need A Powered Or Unpowered Site

Depending on your situation, you may need to choose between unpowered and powered caravan sites. Some campers prefer the privacy and seclusion offered by unpowered sites, while others want to be powered up before embarking on the rest of their road trip. Powered caravan sites allow you to use more appliances within your camper trailer without worrying about running out of electricity and usually offer a wider range of services than unpowered sites for greater comfort. Powered caravan sites are typically more expensive than unpowered sites because of the extra infrastructure they provide.

Find Out About Discounts On The Caravan Site

Most caravan sites charge more during peak travel season, but offer appealing discounts during non-peak times. Try to travel during non-peak periods and ask for the best possible deal you can get when booking. If you form a small group of camper trailers travelling together, then you should be able to negotiate for a better deal. You can also become a member of caravan park groups because you will probably be offered better discounts this way. 

If you're looking to choose between different caravan sites for your camper trailer road trip, consider these important factors for finding something that meets your specific needs.

Planning a weekend away

My wife had been having a rocky time of it since our second child was born. She really needed a break from the kids so I organised a luxury weekend away in a hotel while the kids stayed with our parents. That way she was be able to catch up on sleep, having uninterrupted showers and toilet breaks. She also really looked forward to not having to clean up after the kids for a while! Luckily, she enjoyed this weekend so much that we decided to do it more regularly. This blog is all about organising a luxury weekend away in a hotel for your spouse.
