Rainbow’s End RV Park — national headquarters of the Escapees RV Club — was a must stop on our USA circumnavigation. We have been Escapees for  a decade and wanted to stay a few days at where it all began.

The RV club was officially founded on July 4, 1978, by Joe and Kay Peterson  to aide full-time RVers. Today it recognizes there are many different ways to experience the RV lifestyle and welcomes all RVers, regardless of the type of rig in which they travel.

While the traditional RV lifestyle has changed considerably since the economic downturn and the rise in technology, at the heart of the Escapees RV Club is still “community.”

In 1984, Rainbow’s End RV Park, six miles south of Livingston, Texas, became the Escapees first RV park and national headquarters. Over the past 40 years, thousands of volunteer members have played a major part in the Escapees’ success story. They have helped build the co-op home-base parks and perform many tasks that enable the parking fees to remain low.
