RV camping is all about outdoor living. However, finding cute but practical RV patio accessories is difficult.

Below are 23 RV campsite decorating ideas and RV campsite setup ideas that will make your RV patio the talk of the campground (in a good way). We share ideas that work for both seasonal campers and frequent travelers.

RV Patio Lights

Lights are an essential item at any RV campsite. Hanging some fun string lights makes your campsite feel warm and welcoming any time of day.

Rope Lights

Laying rope lights around the border of your campsite brightens your space and alerts campers to any tripping hazards. Rope lights are great for travelers because they can be easily rolled up when you move.

These LED rope lights are waterproof, so they can be used on cold or wet camping weekends. Strings can also be connected together to create a total rope length of up to 100 feet. If the RV park has trees, rope lights are also an easy way to illuminate them.

Edison Bulb Lights

Edison Bulb string lights will make your camper’s patio area feel super classy. The modern bulbs provide great light and add a sense of style to your outdoor living area.

Brightech’s solar-powered lights are the perfect option for boondockers who still want to decorate their campsite. Simply clip the included solar panel on your awning or stake it in the ground, and the lights will charge during the day so they can be used at night.

Personalized Campsite Signs

While it is one of the most common campsite decorating ideas, a personalized sign is a must-have item for many RVers. Customized signs introduce you to the neighbors and spark conversations at the campground.

Metal Sign

These custom metal signs will stand out from all the other campsite signs. The steel signs are durable and made to last.

Customizations include adding your first names or last name to the bottom of the sign. The travel trailer version is pictured above, but the Cline Design Creations store has signs for all RV types including motorhomes, fifth wheels, and small campers.

Wooden Sign

Wooden campsite signs are another stylish option. These customized signs from CoreMemoryCo are fun and beautiful. The signs are available for every type of camper and in multiple sizes. Even the color of the camper is customizable.

The sign includes chain links for easy hanging on a yard stake outside your RV.

Garden Flags

If you want a more affordable or portable option, buy a pre-made campsite flag. This adorable RV campsite flag is less than $10 but will look great at any campsite.

Campsite Furniture

RV campsite with colorful chairs

One of the most practical campsite decorating ideas is a great furniture set for outdoor dinners and nights around the campfire. When selecting furniture for the RV campsite, look for lightweight items that can be easily folded or stacked for storage during travel or the off-season.

Folding Adirondack Chairs

Adirondack chairs are a classic, rustic design piece but are usually too bulky to move between campsites.

Fortunately, these folding Adirondack chairs from Serwall are the perfect RV solution! When unfolded, the chairs feature tall backs, wide armrests, and large seats for the ultimate comfort at the campsite.

These chairs are also available in several bright colors, so you can pick a tone that matches your other RV decorations!

Portable Director’s Chairs

If the wooden chairs are too large for your camper or RV, more typical camping chairs in a fun pattern are another great option for your RV patio.

These floral print, outdoor director’s chairs are ultra lightweight, but still super stylish. The chairs also have an attached side table for your book or beverage.

Inflatable Ottoman

If you want to kick your feet up while camping, you also need an outdoor ottoman. This inflatable ottoman was made to be used outdoors with durable, fade-resistant fabric. When traveling, the ottoman can be deflated and fit into a small bag.

A foot pump is included to air up the ottoman for camping weekends. In addition to the leafy pattern pictured, the ottoman is also available in geometric patterns and solid colors.

Camping Table

No matter which chairs you use, a small side table is always nice to have as well. The Trekology Portable Camping Table is a great compact choice.

The table is available in three sizes and folds down to fit in a small bag for travel. The aluminum table top will hold up well outdoors and is available in blue or brown.

Hammock

A hammock is the ultimate piece of RV camping furniture. Hammocks are comfortable, portable, and often colorful. Campers can choose between two options for setting up hammocks near RV patios.

If you are camping in an area with plenty of trees, purchase a travel hammock with tree straps, like the one pictured above from Anyoo. If there aren’t great trees at your campsite use a portable hammock stand.

RV Campsite Accessories

Class A RV with decorated campsite.

The small accessories and details make an RV campsite feel like a second home. Below are some of our favorite small campsite decorating ideas to add a special touch to your outdoor space.

Citronella Candles

Citronella Candle

Citronella is a proven, all-natural, insect repellent. However, most citronella candles sold in camping stores focus on practicality not style.

The Citronella Lime Candles from Hawaiian Candles are practical and beautiful. The candles are poured into handcrafted wooden bowls that can be reused once the candle has burned down.

Tabletop Campfire

If you want the ambiance of a campfire without the work of building one, purchase one of these concrete tabletop fire pits. The fire pit is just 3 inches tall and is fueled with rubbing alcohol.

Two roasting sticks are included for the kids to make s’mores over the tiny campfire.

Tablecloth

Most campgrounds and RV parks offer picnic tables but many are weathered and gross. The easiest way to quickly decorate a campsite is to throw a beautiful, printed tablecloth on the old picnic table.

Hiasan makes classic checkered tablecloths in a variety of colors. The Hiasan tablecloths are also stain-resistant and machine-washable. Don’t forget to purchase tablecloth clips to prevent the tablecloth from blowing away.

Hummingbird Feeder

A bird feeder in your campsite can serve as both décor and entertainment. Hummingbird feeders will attract beautiful, tiny birds to your RV’s window.

Purchase a feeder with a suction cup that can be installed anywhere on an RV exterior. Our hummingbird feeder has been one of our favorite campsite decorating ideas in eight years of living on the road.

Vase and Fresh Flowers

Fresh flowers are the easiest way to brighten any indoor or outdoor room. For outdoor displays, look for a durable vase that will not break. Silicone vases with suction cups are the perfect solution for camping.

These lightweight vases cannot be broken, and the included suction cups prevent the vases from blowing over on a breezy day.

Flags

Flags are a great way to show an affinity for your home state or favorite sports team. The Flag Pole Buddy RV Kit comes with a sturdy 16-foot fiberglass flag pole system that adjusts to fit most rear RV ladders.

When traveling, the pole collapses for easy storage. We travel with a fun tie-dye flag from one of our favorite bands.

Lawn Ornaments

Fun or artistic lawn ornaments are another great way to show off your personality at the campground or RV park. There are ornaments in every shape and size imaginable from gnomes to wind wheels to simple metal flowers.

However, there is no yard ornament that says you know how to have fun like the classic pink flamingo. Place a few of these birds at your campsite and everyone will know where to go for a fun night.

Campsite Rugs and Mats

Large outdoor rugs or welcome mats help keep dirt out of RVs and offer another opportunity to add colors or patterns to your campsite.

Outdoor Rug

A large, bright outdoor rug is the easiest way to make your campsite the prettiest in the park.

The Anidaroel Outdoor Area Rug is my favorite RV patio mat. Its bright yellow sunshine pattern is sure to bring joy to any campsite. Made of 100% premium recycled polypropylene the mat is breathable and waterproof.

Available in several sizes, this mat can be great for any campsite. A medium-sized version of the rug weighs less than 5 pounds, and all sizes include a carrying case for easy storage. The mat also has corner loops so it can be staked down.

RV-Themed Welcome Mat

If you love camping, an RV-themed welcome mat is the perfect way to greet visitors to your RV. This natural fiber mat from Amazon is durable and made to be used outdoors.

Your camper will feel more like a home with this fun, colorful rug at your doorstep.

Rubber Welcome Mat

If an RV-themed mat is too on the nose for your campsite décor, a rubber mat is a good alternative.

Rubber mats are great for campsites because they are super durable and do not fade as easily as other materials. The rubber mat pictured above comes in over several fun patterns and designs.

Other Campsite Decorating Ideas

RV Exterior Decal

RV Vinyl Decal with Mountains

If you are decorating your campsite, you might as well decorate your camper too! Vinyl decal stickers can be placed on the back, side, or slideouts of your RV. Customizable decals, like the one pictured above, can be purchased on Etsy.

Lawn Games

Ring toss game

In addition to being stylish, your RV campsite should also be fun. Old-fashioned wooden lawn games can contribute to both the design and entertainment value of your patio. For example, this rustic ring toss game sold on Etsy is both charming and fun!
