RVC Outdoor Destinations and Best Parks in America Form Partnership

Best Parks in America has announced a partnership with RVC Outdoor Destinations, a Memphis, Tennessee based company that has developed a unique brand of upscale RV and cottage resort properties in the Southeastern United States. Four of RVC’s properties will carry the Best Parks in America brand designation and will be part of a national family of superior resorts that now numbers 76 and growing.

 “We are excited about this new partnership with RVC,” said David Gorin, President of Best Parks of America.  “RVC’s outdoor destinations embody the objectives of Best Parks by offering RVers and cottage vacation guests a high quality, unique vacation experience in superb surroundings.   The company is staking out a new and different business model, featuring appealing natural environments, hotel-like services and upscale amenities, and all are located within minutes of great recreational activities and attractions that are unique to each location and the community,” said Gorin.

 Best Parks in America is a leading national brand for highly-rated RV parks and campgrounds. Through the partnership, the company will provide RVC with a wide range of marketing, branding, training, research, and business intelligence and information.

 “We are proud to be affiliated with Best Parks in America, as we share the same values and goals of delivering a great experience to our guests. Partnerships such as this, with an established and admirable brand, allow our company to grow and become better known,” said Yale Spina, Vice President of RVC Outdoor Destinations. “We have motivated teams in place and great properties that include excellent amenities that will now be recognized with Best Parks in America. I can’t wait to get the word out,” Spina added.

 RVC Outdoor Destinations has been actively seeking to develop or acquire RV properties in highly desirable vacation areas. The company anticipates that the new “Outdoor Destination” concept will have great appeal across a wide range of RVers, as well as the offering of the increasingly popular RVC Resort Cottages, yurts, and cabins to not exclude those who may not own an RV.

“I’m sure RVers, campers and others who’ve visited Best Parks in America resorts across the U.S. will applaud the partnership with RVC Outdoor Destinations,” said Gorin.  “For Best Parks, the partnership marks a new opportunity for us to work with multiple park companies in providing a national brand presence that identifies superior resorts to vacationers,” he added.

Pine Mountain Completes Yurt Village!

Our Georgia resort, Pine Mountain, an RVC Outdoor Destination, has announced a unique addition to the property...a village of yurts! The construction of three new yurts was completed last week with a few finishing touches to be made within the month. Additionally, they have completed renovation of their shower and restroom facilities, which are in close proximity of Yurt Village.

Each yurt was built with quality indoor and outdoor features for guests to enjoy. Every yurt has a fire ring and deck for outdoor activities. 

Indoors, guests will find attractive furnishings with a place for dining in case of inclement weather. Standard yurt features include beds with fresh linens, a tent-like design, wooden floors, advanced heating and A/C units, windows, and a skylight.

Yurts are often associated with a luxury camping experience and are a rare find in the United States. Jim Anderson, General Manager at Pine Mountain, said people “love” yurts because they “provide a fresh and fun overnight experience while eliminating all the negatives associated with camping: extreme temperatures, rain, bugs, and dirt.”

Yurts will also be available for rent at our newest resort in Hot Springs, Arkansas – “Catherine’s Landing,” opening in April.
