Located in the heart of Texas Hill Country, Buckhorn Lake Resort in Kerrville is off I-10 just an
hours drive from San Antonio. Each pad site is designed with large coaches in mind—they include widely paved pull-throughs and roads. The resort also features an 8,000-square-foot red barn. The facility that not only hosts year-round activities sponsored by Buckhorn but also can be rented for other events. Other amenities include trash pick up, a dog park, pools and a fitness center.
Sometimes it’s not always about the destination. Taking your RV on the open road and experiencing breathtaking views along the way can make for the one-of-a-kind vacation your family is looking for. Highways can guide you along the coast to take in ocean views at sunset. Others, like the Gold Belt Tour National Scenic Byway, wind you through the mountains exploring history.
From rolling hills to rocky canyons, the views along the Gold Belt Tour are diverse exploring abandoned gold mines and once bustling mining towns—now sleepy tourism attractions. Also known as the Road to Riches, this scenic byway is located in southern Colorado and can be reached on the northern end via U.S. Highway 24 and at the southern end via U.S. Highway 50. Driving the Gold Belt Tour, a Colorado Scenic and Historic Byway, you can retrace travel routes
taken by covered wagons through the communities of Florence, Cañon City and Florissant that connect Cripple Creek and the Victor Mining District.
Not to miss in Cañon City is the Royal Gorge Bridge and Park. The Royal Gorge Bridge hangs high above the Arkansas River and is the highest suspension bridge in the United States. With gondola rides and zip lines, there’s plenty to entertain you at the park after parking your RV—oversized vehicles are not allowed on the bridge.
Won’t you be my neighbor?
If you consider your ride more of a motor home rather than an RV, Heritage Motor Coach Resort & Marina might be the perfect place to hitch your vehicle. Located on Bayou St. John in Orange Beach, Alabama, this is not your typical pull-through available park.
Although each site comes with all the amenities expected—including cable television hookups—each “pad” also comes with a cottage.
The resort is set up much like a neighborhood, with sites available for rent and purchase. The neighborhood has a clubhouse, lawn care and, as you can guess, HOA fees. But there is something to be said for having neighbors, and you can’t beat the concierge service.
Whether renting or buying, staying at the Heritage Motor Coach Resort & Marina would be considered the ultimate RV experience.
