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
Heritage Presbyterian Church invites you to join them at Babler State Park in Missouri this Easter Sunday, March 27th to worship our Risen Savior. The park offers 75 campsites many with hookups. Click here for sunrise service details.
Who wouldn’t want to worship the risen Jesus in the biggest cathedral of all, Yosemite National Park. Yosemite Valley Chapel hosts sunrise service at the Lower Pines Campground at 7am. Click here to book your campsite.
These are just a few of the many options available this Easter to celebrate the resurrection while enjoying family time camping in your RV. Happy Easter!
