Spring officially arrived a couple days ago and Easter is March 27. Now, if you are like many RVers, spring signals the start of the camping season and after a long winter many are anxious to get out on their first camping trip. However, with Easter being fairly early this year the first weekend of Spring and Easter weekend are held simultaneously. What is a RVer to do?
Well celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ and camping need not be exclusive of each other. Many RV parks and public campgrounds provide a way for RVers to celebrate Easter while enjoying a weekend of camping.
Let’s take a look at some of the options available nationwide:
Georgia’s Stone Mountain State Park offers a wide variety of family activities set among 3,200 acres of natural beauty. The park offers hundreds of campsites for those celebrating Easter atop Stone Mountain. The sunrise service began in 1944, before the land around Stone Mountain was officially owned by the State of Georgia. Lucille Lanford of Stone Mountain’s First United Methodist Church, suggested that the church’s youth group climb to the top of Stone Mountain on Easter morning to watch the sunrise. The event has become a tradition ever since and today participants can ride a cable car to the top of the mountain. Click here for more information

Dave Helgeson’s many roles in the RV industry started before he even had a driver’s license. His grandparents and father owned an RV dealership before the term “RV” had been coined, and Dave played a pivotal role in nearly every position of an RV dealership. He and his wife Cheri launched their own RV dealership in the Pacific Northwest. The duo also spent 29 years overseeing regional RV shows. Dave has also served as President of a local chapter of the Recreational Vehicle Dealers Association (RVDA), worked on the board of advisors for the RV Technician Program of a local technical college, and served as a board member of the Manufactured Home and RV Association. Dave’s reputation earned him the title of “The foremost expert on boondocking,” bestowed by RV industry icon, the late Gary Bunzer (The RV Doctor). When he’s not out boondocking, you’ll find Dave in the spotlight at RV shows across the country, giving seminars about all things RVing. He and Cheri currently roam in their fifth travel trailer, with Dave doing all the service, repair and modifications to his own unit.
