RV Resorts & Campsites in Macedonia Brook State Park

Camping during your visit to this gorgeous state park is a great way to ensure you get the full experience. After all, what better way to immerse yourself in the nature of the area than to eat and sleep in it?

That said, tent camping definitely isn’t for everybody. This is where RV camping and the rentals from RVshare come into play. RVing allows you to experience all the magic of camping without all of the discomforts that come along with it, and RVShare makes trying your hand at RVing easy by providing a huge variety of well-maintained motorhomes and trailers to choose from. 

Of course, you will need someplace to park your rental RV. Fortunately, visitors to Macedonia Brook State Park have the option to camp in the gorgeous and convenient in-park campground. 

This campground is quite primitive, providing only pit toilets and potable water pumps. That said, many people enjoy the peace and beauty offered by this campground enough to go without full hookups. 

Don’t feel up to staying in such a primitive place? Try one of these area RV park options instead.
