Experience the Ultimate in Glamping with a Private Hot Tub at Your RV Site
I love a good soak in a private hot tub, and I love glamping. So it would only make sense to me that RV glamping sites have private hot tubs, right? Well, it turns out — hot tubs at RV sites are not too common. So, if you come across one, book it. Because after a long day of exploring, there’s nothing more satisfying than soaking in your own private oasis (especially when clothing is optional).
So, no more sharing a communal hot tub with other campers, worrying about closing times, kids splashing, or overcrowding. Instead, customize your glamping experience by choosing the water temp, song playlist (here’s ours!), and even the dress code.

It’s fenced in and has private showers, private laundry (how nice!), a fire pit, a covered porch – and, yes, its own hot tub. You can relax in your secluded and private tub, while taking in a Mission Bay sunset, or maybe catch the fireworks at SeaWorld. It’s also close to the main pools and recreation areas, and just a quick walk from the store, restaurant, dog park, and beach.

And the best part? Turtle Rock has seven full hook up RV sites featuring a private jacuzzi tub, deck, and grill. We stayed in hot tub site 46, which overlooked the water and is one of the best locations. And, if the hot tub sites are not your thing, the bathhouse has actual soaking bathtubs for use as well.

Alternative Private Hot Tub RV Sites
HipCamp connects campers to unique outdoor accommodations and experiences on private and public lands. We’ve used HipCamp to discover new and beautiful places to stay, and find some really amazing glamping spots at places like farms and wineries. One of the standout features of HipCamp is the variety of glamping RV sites available, many of which offer additional amenities and experiences — like private hot tubs. And the site is very easy to navigate. Here’s a suggested search: Location is United States, Choose RV, enter your length, choose more filters, choose hot tub (and other amenities). And move the map to find a spot like this dreamy farm in Vermont.
If you can’t find an RV site with a hot tub near you, you could purchase bring your own. Portable inflatable hot tubs, like these tubs, are pretty inexpensive and pack up fairly small. Most RV parks prohibit portable tubs (and I get it – liability, where to empty it, uses extra electric, etc.). Though, we’ve actually stayed at a few parks that allowed them (like this park in Tucson, New Mexico). Oh and Coleman, if you need an inflatable SaluSpa RV hot tub tester, shoot me an email.
As RV Parks and Resorts modernize to keep up with changing customer demands, I think we’ll see an increase in amenities that were not popular just a few years ago. We’re already seeing tech upgrades like WiFi and online booking (yes, the industry is behind on this), to attract the work-from-home and nomads. Next I think we’ll see more unique experiences aiming to attract a wider range of visitors, including luxury travelers. And hopefully, we’ll see more RV parks with hot tubs in the near future.
So, if you know of a RV Resort or Campground with private hot tubs that I missed, I’d love to hear about it. And if you’re an resort owner or manager and considering adding a pinch of luxury – think about adding private hot tubs to your sites.
