Choosing The Best Places to Camp and Ride ATVs

There is no single best among campgrounds that allow ATVs. What makes a great campsite for one will be undesirable to another. But there is one thing to be aware of.

Campsites offer varying degrees of amenities. There are campsites that are as bare bones as you can get. These are the most enjoyable for people and families who are used to full-blown camping. No Holiday-Inn campers here. Some campsites offer a few amenities like a public restroom while others offer pools, laundry, and other hotel-like features. Some even have arcades. If you want to include glampers, family who aren’t as excited about off-roading, or younger kids, these are the campgrounds for you.

Choosing The Best Machine

If you will be renting your ATV or UTV, you should know a few things to have an enjoyable and safe trip.

An ATV is meant for one person, sometimes two, if it has two seats. Never put a second person on an ATV that wasn’t designed for two. Weight and balance are crucial with off-road machines.

Choose an ATV that fits your skill level. Only advanced riders need the fastest or most powerful machines.

UTVs are best for bringing one or more people along on your machine. They offer seating for 2-6, depending on the model, more stability, expansive storage space, and safety features like roll cages and windshields. Some have roofs and enclosed cabins.

Make sure the campground you are considering offers rentals, and check their rules before you book your trip.
