“It’s time to round up an RV camping adventure that’s fun for the whole family! Today’s professional rodeo events feature world class athletes, fierce competition and a ten gallon hat full of American cowboy culture, so why not plan to attend at least one this year? Comfortable RV camping means anyone can easily hit the trail in pursuit of rodeo action. Use these tips for creating your own RV journey to find the best in American rodeo.

Where to Find Pro Rodeo Action
The Professional Rodeo Cowboys’ Association (PRCA) hosts Pro Rodeo events almost year-round, at arenas from Texas to North Dakota. These events are sometimes linked with state fairs or charity fundraisers, and they all feature the best in authentic rodeo action. One big plus for RV campers is that other rodeo fans love RVs, too. According to, twenty-two percent of rodeo fans are likely to own an RV and often follow the circuit in them, which means campgrounds are likely to be located close to the arenas.

Decide whether you’d like to attend a local rodeo, a regional qualifying event, or a world-class finals competition and be sure to book your tickets early. Some events are just one day of intense competition, while others stretch out over a long weekend.

One way to choose your RV camping rodeo destinations this year is by following your favorite circuits or rodeo athletes. The PRCA Xtreme Bulls tour, for instance, has one wild and rowdy schedule that pits the toughest bulls against the top bullriders in the country.

You might also enjoy such electrifying events as the Wrangler Timed Events Championship, where top cowboys like Trevor Brazile compete for the gold every March in Guthrie, Oklahoma. Whether your favorite rodeo sport is bullriding, team roping or bareback bronc riding, there are regional and national events to design an exciting RV road trip around.

Where to Find Great RV Camping Near the Arena
Once you decide which rodeo events you don’t want to miss this year, start booking RV campsites close by. Did we mention that RV camping makes so much more sense than getting roped into expensive hotel rooms, restaurant meals and rental cars?

To find the best campgrounds near the arena, check the event’s website first. These sites often list local accommodations to help fans planning to attend. Another quick way to find RV campgrounds near PRCA events is by Googling “PRCA RV campgrounds.” Many campgrounds list annual rodeos in their area attractions and can help with information about their local rodeo.

Consider joining the PRCA FanZone, where hardcore rodeo fans discuss the latest standings and share tips for enjoying the rodeo circuit. One more way to locate comfortable campsites close to rodeo action is by searching websites like Go Camping America and Best Parks in America.

And, by the way, if you don’t happen to own a motorhome, there are affordable RV rentals easily available. Check online for RV rental locations near your destination, if you plan to fly in, or pick one up locally if you’re driving to the arena. Modern RVs come equipped with all the comforts of home, from well-designed kitchens to state of the art sound systems.

Isn’t it time your family let loose and enjoyed the thrills and chills of live rodeo? With just a little planning, your RV camping rodeo adventure can take the trophy in your family’s RV vacation memories.
