Xmas in an RV

Christmas in an RV- the best places to spend the holidays in a motorhome

Here are our favorite Christmas-y destinations:

  1. Christmas, Florida

Where to Stay: Christmas RV Park

Make your way to the happiest place in Florida, a town that is actually named for Christmas! This festive town is located merely twenty miles east of Orlando and is on route to Kennedy Space Center, Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge, and Canaveral National Seashore. Let us not forgot that nearby Kissimmee is home to the “happiest place on earth,” Disney World. While you are there, visit Fort Christmas which is a lovely historic park featuring replicas of historical buildings such as an 1837 fort, pioneer homes & a sugar mill.

Christmas keeps to its namesake with festive decorations throughout the town and events every holiday season. It’s the ideal central location to park your RV and be able to take trips to the desirable surrounding destinations all Christmas season! And, it’s only about a half hour drive from our Orlando El Monte RV Rentals Location.


  1. Our other Florida choice for great weather during the holiday season is San Carlos RV Resort & Marina

Located in: Fort Myers Beach, Florida

Located on Hurricane Bay, this is a well-rated RV park year-round, but those who've stayed here over Christmas note carolers stopping by their rigs as well as being invited to neighboring campers' holiday parties. Recently, there was a report of very large, lighted, decorative tree installed in the front of the park, which added to an already festive look for the Christmas season. Other winter amenities include shuffleboard, horseshoes, kayaking trips, and live music, and of course, great Florida winter weather.


  1. Stone Mountain Park, Georgia is our third choice for the holiday season and it will not disappoint.


Where to Stay: Stone Mountain Park Campground


Located in: Stone Mountain, Georgia


This area near Atlanta is home to Stone Mountain Christmas, a month-and-a-half-long celebration that includes incredible light displays, festive music, a parade and tree lighting ceremony, scenic train rides, live shows, and plenty more. The nearby RV park offers a "Christmas Camping Package" that includes passes to the festivities, a bundle of firewood, and a s'mores pack.


Stone Mountain Park has over 250 full and partial hook-up campsites, so you won’t have to worry about not having a reservation if you make a last-minute trip to Georgia. Known as “Atlanta’s Most Heartwarming Holiday Celebration,” Christmas lasts from November 10th through January 6th in Stone Mountain! The town is known for their amazing holiday attractions like the Summit Skyride, Scenic Railroad and The Polar Express 4-D Experience. This is truly a place where children are free to let their Christmas cheer shine and be fully embraced! Come see Santa and a ton of other holiday classic characters while you enjoy the Christmas carols and hot cocoa with your loved ones


Throughout the season, there are opportunities to go water tubing, take holiday train rides, drive or walk through lighting displays, and even meet Rudolph and the Abominable Snowman or check out "Ice Age 4-D" on the big screen. Although you won't likely find snow at this southern destination, you can still get into the Christmas spirit by venturing down Wonderland Walkway, attending the daily Christmas parade, or catching evening firework shows.


  1. Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona

For the more adventurous, if you want to go out west for Christmas, or you live in the west and want to take advantage of smaller crowds, Grand Canyon National Park is free of the warm weather crowds in the winter and Christmas seasons, making this one of the best times to visit this famous landmark attraction. With fewer crowds and cooler temperatures in December, you won’t have to worry about cars clogging the most popular destination or the sweltering heat of Arizona's summers.

RV camping is available year-round at the Trailer Village RV Park, which is located in Grand Canyon Village on the South Rim, with full RV hookups, set within a high-desert landscape. The Grand Canyon Railway, which is also located in the Grand Canyon Village, is a must for anyone visiting the park any time of year, but it gets even better at Christmas when it's temporarily transformed into the Polar Express. And, yes, even with COVID-19, the Polar Express will be running. Visit the website to see restrictions and for reservations, which you should make early this year, especially!


  1. And our fifth choice, but perhaps the top choice for those in the Midwest, is the town of Santa Claus, Indiana.

This town in Indiana has taken the Christmas theme and really run with it. You’ll have a blast in Santa Claus, Indiana, with all their holiday-themed attractions such as the Santa Claus Museum, Santa’s Candy Castle, and Frosty’s Fun Center. The town has the unique distinction of having a post office with the name of Santa Claus which is flooded with letters every year addressed to old St. Nick. Of course, you can choose to stay at Lake Rudolph Campground and RV Resort when you're in town, which is also appropriately decorated with holiday cheer throughout the Christmas season.
