Top Snowbird RV Parks Chosen by the Good Sam RV Travel Guide and Campground Directory

The Good Sam RV Travel Guide and Campground Directory has released its list of Top Snowbird Parks for 2014. These select Sun Belt RV parks stand out for their amenities and accommodations for winter travelers seeking fun in the sun.

Located across the warm-weather band that stretches from California to the southeast, each of the Top Snowbird Parks offers activities, services and comforts tailored to travelers who have trekked across a continent—sometimes as far as 3,000 miles—and often stay in their snowbird roosts for months at a time. 

Highlights From the List
  • RV parks on the list accommodate snowbird travelers with luxuries that include pools, spas, fitness centers or golf courses.
  • Snowbird parks generally cultivate vibrant winter communities that offer social events, classes and tours to surrounding attractions.
  • The snowbird parks on the list represent a wide variety of ecosystems and cultures, from the lowland coastal areas of Florida to the high deserts of California and Arizona.

Facts About Snowbirds
  • Over 1 million RVers make the trek south to the Sun Belt every winter, more than the population of Austin, Texas.
  • Snowbirds generally follow north-south travel patterns: Those who reside in the northwest generally spend winter in the southwest, while snowbirds who live in the northeast winter in the southeast, etc.
  • Snowbird migration dramatically alters the demographics of some winter communities. For example, the population of Yuma, Arizona, grows from 60,000 to more than 120,000 when snowbird season rolls around. 
  • In Texas, RVers who stay during winter are often known as “Winter Texans,” not Snowbirds.
  • Snowbirds make up a large portion of the attendees to major Sun Belt RV shows, such as the Florida RV SuperShow, held every January.

Choosing the Parks
The editors and consultants of the Good Sam RV Travel Guide and Campground Directory chose the list of Snowbird Parks from the annual publication’s database of 8,000 private parks. 

Each month, a new list of Top Parks will be featured in press releases and articles released by the Good Sam RV Travel Guide. Click here for a roundup of each of our Top Parks by month.
