There are so many benefits to owning a caravan and as staycations become more and more popular, lots of people are purchasing touring caravans. One of the biggest selling points of having a caravan is that you can visit multiple campsites throughout the country and they make it easy for you to explore lots of new areas. What’s more, your future holidays will be much more affordable when you have a touring caravan too. 


If you’re new to caravan holidays and you’re trying to choose a campsite to stay on, whilst there are lots of different things to consider, the facilities available on-site is one of the most important. You will soon notice that touring caravan campsites differ quite significantly and in order to ensure you have the most enjoyable holiday, certain facilities are really useful. Below we have put together a list of some of the best facilities to look for when you’re booking a caravan pitch


Electric hook-up


Whilst you will have electricity in your touring caravan and you can run all of your essentials off of your 12v system, having electric hook-up is always beneficial. You won’t have to worry about your battery running out when you have electric hook-up and you can use all of your caravan appliances as and when you wish. In this digital day and age, having free WiFi on a touring caravan campsite is also really advantageous. 


Toilet and shower block


Again, even though you will have a bathroom in your touring caravan, lots of people still prefer to use toilet and shower blocks. When you have these facilities on-site, you will use less water in your caravan, preventing you from needing to refill your water container on a regular basis. Showers in caravans can be quite small too and having access to a private family shower will be very helpful. Additional extras in this block, such as hair dryers, can be handy as well. 


Laundry facilities


When you’re booking a longer holiday, having laundry facilities on a touring caravan campsite is really convenient. Being able to wash your clothes on-site can reduce the amount you need to pack for your holiday and you won’t have to take all of your dirty washing home with you either. If you’re likely to go on day trips to the seaside, for example, being able to wash your swimming costumes and beach towels is always useful too. 


Tourist information


As mentioned above, exploring new areas is one of the best things about caravanning and when you’re staying in different parts of the country that you’ve never been to before, having tourist information on-site will be fruitful. Being able to get information about must-see places in the local area can help you plan your holiday and knowing about the best local attractions can help you make sure you don’t miss out on anything. 


Children’s play area


If you have children or you’re camping with family and friends who have children, having some entertainment on a touring caravan campsite is always a good idea. You don’t necessarily need anything extravagant in this regard, a simple play area will help to keep children entertained when you want to spend the day relaxing on-site. Some campsites even offer outdoor activities which can be really fun for children of all ages.
