Great Gift Ideas For The RV Camper

Image
The majority of the people we meet at our riverfront RV campground in the Midwest are RV owners. These wonderful wandering nomads are a special type of person that love meeting new people and finding adventure in the great outdoors. Today we've started our blog by listing 10 general holiday gift ideas for this type of person, but if you skip to the end, you'll find a bunch of excellent gift ideas that can be found right here at The Cottonwood Cove!   



1) Travel Journal
This is a wonderful way for someone enjoying the RV life to document their journey. Include pens or pencils, scrapbooking tape for attaching photos, and maybe some fun stickers that they can decorate the pages with. 

2) Special Keychain
A very important item to always keep track of for an RV owner is the keys to the RV! A personalized keychain is a nice gift, or maybe a funny novelty keychain that will put a smile on their face.  

3) Personalized Signs
These are nice for decorating the RV's "yard" while …

5 Reasons We're Thankful This Year At The Cottonwood Cove

Image
Looking back at the 2018 season at The Cottonwood Cove, we have a LOT of reasons to feel thankful! Sure, HEAVY rain tried to spoil things for us at our RV Campground & Marina on the Missouri River, and the road construction was a bit inconvenient, but none of that stopped us from having fun! 

A lot was accomplished and a ton of wonderful memories were made. Here are just a few of the many reasons that 2018 is a season we will always look back on fondly. 



New Amenities
This year visitors to The Cottonwood Cove were able to enjoy a brand new 21+ pool and swim-up bar! (We can now boast 1 of only 2 swim-up bars in all of Nebraska!) It was most definitely worth the wait, and we're looking forward to jumping right back in as soon as the weather warms up next spring.



We also now have an excellent playground for the youngest visitors to The Cottonwood Cove. A bit later than anticipated, but better late than never! The equipment was ordered months ago but only arrived at the end of October…

5 Tips For Getting Your RV Ready For Winter Storage

Image
Winter is on its way, so it's not too early to start thinking about what you need to do to keep your RV in good condition if you'll be storing it away during those cold months. Properly storing your RV in the winter months is the best way to protect it for many more years of future adventuring. Following the basic tips that The Cottonwood Cove has in today's blog will help you do that. 



Drain the Water Systems
Any water left in the plumbing system of an RV can freeze when it gets extremely cold and break the lines and fittings. This can result in extremely pricey repairs to get it going again next spring. All of the water needs to be drained from both the fresh water and waste tanks. Pumping nontoxic RV antifreeze through the plumbing will push the water out, and your owner's manual should have instructions on how to do this. If you aren't completely comfortable doing this yourself, we can help you find a professional to take care of it.

Schedule a Tour of The Cottonwood Cove RV Resort & Marina

Image
Our Midwest RV Resort & Marina on the Missouri River is a wonderful place to camp from spring through fall. When you become a member of The Cottonwood Cove by reserving your very own RV lot, you have the freedom to enjoy our beautiful vacation destination any time that you like, plus you will always be "in-the-know" about special events that we are planning. 



See the Campground in Person
People travel to this scenic vacation destination in the Midwest from all over the country, and some even visit us from further away than that! We realize that it may be hard to decide where you would like to park your RV if you haven't see the spaces in person. That is why we encourage everyone to give us a call and schedule a personal tour of The Cottonwood Cove. Not only will you be able to see our incredible riverfront campground with your own eyes, but we will also be right here to answer any questions that you may have before making the decision to become a part of our big, happy…
