Anchor Down Campground – Dandridge, Tennessee
Some might consider this place not really a campground because of all the amenities. You name it, and it probably has it. There are so many things to enjoy here that include but are not limited to:
- Full hookups at every site
- Bath house
- Basketball courts
- Jet ski rentals
- Camp store
- Cable TV hookups
- BBQ grills
- Lake front sites
- On site trash Pickup
- and so much more!
This really is an awesome place to go. Its right on a lake, so your little ones can go exhaust themselves as they romp and play, while you just sit back and relax.
Anchor Down is pet friendly, and has so much to do so that you are never bored!
Beverly Beach Camptown RV Resort – Flagler Beach, Florida
I love the beach, and so do most human beings. I also love to go to new places in my RV. Why not combine the two!
This place has bathhouses, Laundry facilities, and the most important thing: The beach!
Why not take your kids to the beach to enjoy the sun and sand! Some people don’t think about campsites like this, but they do exist. This place has 1,500 feet of beachfront dedicated to the park, so it’s fantastic for people that want beach-front property and have an RV.
Big Meadows Campground – Stanley Virginia
Although they don’t have any dedicated RV hookups, there is plenty of space for RV’s. They have blackwater dumping stations as well, so it’s really not a big deal if you are only staying for a few days. They do offer electricity at many of their sites though
The thing that makes this park so great is the lush forests and access to several waterfalls that are only a short hike away.
Shenandoah has over 500 miles of trails including 101 miles of the Appalachian Trail. If you like to hike, this place is your second home. There is just so much space to make an adventure that you will be telling people about for the rest of your life.
I have heard some people call this “My favorite place on earth”. It’s really beautiful and new, so go and experience this place.
Briar Point Campground – Roanoke, West Virginia
This Campground is actually inside a resort, and therefore it might be a little pricey for some. However, it has full hookups for your RV and plenty to do.
This resort is full of activities, and the lake has great fishing! West Virginia is known for how thick its forests are, and the area around here is no different. If you love to go on hikes and adventures, this is the place for you. So much to do with so little time!
YouTube is full of people showing off their huge fish that they have just caught so this is a fisherman’s dream. If you can, haul your canoe out here and see if you can get the dream catch.
Who knows, it might be your new favorite fishing spot.
They rent their sites on a first come first serve basis, so make reservations early.
Cloudland Canyon State Park – Rising Fawn, Georgia
This place is located in one of the most beautiful spots in Georgia, and has so much to do. The landscape is full of lush forest and large canyons to get lost in adventure! Here are some of the things that this park offers:
- Biking — 30 miles of trails
- Canyon Climbers ClubCaving – caves open April, June–July & September–October
- Disc Golf
- Hiking – 64 miles of trails
- Horseback Riding – 16 miles of trails
- Weddings – park approval required
- Wild Cave Tours & Guided Hikes with G3 Adventures
- Bike Rentals ($35 half-day/$55 entire day)
I love places that have loads of options like this. Options for adventure are your best friend when you are RV camping, and therefore the places with the most options are the best places.
Spend some time with each of the activities and you could say goodbye to your entire summer!
There is more on this stunning place at the bottom of my list
Creekside Campground – Edinburg, Virginia
This is such a cool site. It has a “Mom and pop shop” feel to it, yet has all the amenities such as:
- Big rig friendly
- Creekside sites
- Tent sites
- Restrooms with showers
- Digital Cable TV
- Fiber Optic Wi-Fi
- walking distance from town
- Fire rings
- Picnic tables
- Beautiful landscaping
- RV storage
- Gravel and grass sites
- Family atmosphere
- Plenty of shade
- Evening lights
- Pavilion for group use
- Pets permitted on leash
- In-town laundromat
This place has full hookups, and their creekside sites are only $42.12 on weekdays. How amazing is that?
I have so many great memories of camping right on the side of a creek, and this place is so beautiful that it would really enhance that memory building factor.
We are RVing from Central Florida up to Nova Scotia. Of everywhere we’ve stayed so far, this is one of our favorite campgrounds. It is right on Stony Creek so you hear the wonderful sound of babbling water as a backdrop. Facilities are immaculate. Only 36 sites so you don’t feel crowded. You can walk into town from the campground. Great location to explore Shenandoah National Park. And don’t miss the Highway 11 Potato Chip Factory.Billie B on trip adviser
In my mind, this is the type of place you go to if you really want to relax and recharge. I mean, talk about serenity! I really need a place to let go of all the stress that comes with life, and this is a great place to do it.
Like Billie B says, 36 sites
It is a simple park that is rather small, but so many people recommend it that to me it’s a must-see.
Crooked River State Park – St Marys, Georgia
This park is like no other and features plenty of option when it comes to RV camping. The best part about this spot is, of course, the neat parts of nature that you can investigate. There are several trails available, and even a boat dock so that you can go fishing in the morning or just go kayaking for fun!
Most parks don’t offer more than 50 AMP hookups, but this place offers the full 100 AMPs that some RVs need.
If you love to fish, this is a great place for you. Rent a canoe or kayak and get your line in the water early while your family sleeps snugly in your RV.
All in all, its 500 Acres of bliss. Go there and you will enjoy your stay I’m sure.
Gulf State Park Campground – Gulf Shores, Alabama
This park is so pretty. That is the only word to describe it. It’s right on the beach, has plenty of really cool wildlife, and a lot of fancy amenities.
If you are looking for a surfers getaway, this is a great spot. They offer so many different activities there, you won’t really have any reason to leave. Here is some of what they offer:
- Kayak and P
- Segway tours
- Bike Rentals
- Parasailing Trips
- Beach Service
- A weekly activities schedule
There is so much here. It would be a great addition to any trip schedule.
Especially parasailing. Who doesn’t want to try that?
Hilton Head Island Motorcoach Resort – Hilton Head Island, South Carolina
This place is quite premium. There are loads of things to do, and they advertise these amenities:
- 200 sites
- 2 Bathhouses
- 30/50 Amp Hookup
- Extended WiFi and Cable TV
- Two Swimming Pools
- Sun Deck
- 24hr Laundry & Exercise Room
- Fishing Pier & Boat Ramp
- Tennis Court
- On-site Water sports- Jet Skis, Kayaks, Paddleboards, Dolphin Tours & more
- 5 Star Restaurant on-site
Although a little pricey, this is a once in a lifetime experience of feeling like you are on an island while still being in your RV.
Myakka River State Park – Sarasota, Florida
If you have an animal lover in your RV, then this is the spot for you. They offer wildlife tours in pontoon boats for pretty cheap, and you can go see tons of wildlife including massive amounts of alligators! For people from other parts of the country, this type of wildlife is completely foreign.
Can’t you just see your son or daughter flipping out because of the real-life dinosaurs that they have never seen in the wild before? Most of the time when they are in zoos, they are lazy and complacent.
These gators are wild and free! A little scarier than at the zoo, but boy are they going to be fascinating to watch.
Let alone the wildlife, and you have a beautiful landscape with plenty of places to explore. Some of the campsites even allow hammocks for those that want to enjoy the shade of the local trees.
There is plenty to do here, including but not limited to:
- Bird Watching
- Boat Tours
- Horseback Riding
- Mountain biking
- Wildlife viewing
With that stack of activities, you will not be bored in this park.
Ocracoke National Park Campground – Ocracoke, North Carolina
This place is amazing. It’s a small island off the coast of North Carolina that has stunning beaches and pretty impressive channels for boats.
The coolest part about this place is its really impressive channels. It’s a small island, but most places are accessible with a small boat because of the waterways. It reminds me of a less developed Venice!
Grab your family and head over here for a different spot then you have ever seen before. It is only accessible by ferry, so some larger Motorhomes aren’t allowed in. Still unforgettable for sure.
Shenandoah River State Park – Bentonville, Virginia
This place doesn’t offer full hookups, but boy is it pretty.
When foreigners think of the American forests, this is what they picture. Really lush forests with a multitude of different trees and vegetation combined with a plethora of wildlife.
In my opinion, RV trips are best accompanied with lots of time outdoors, and places like this truly encourage that with lots of hikes and other activities.
The river is a great spot for fishing, kayaking, and other activities, while the forest offers plenty of opportunities for adventure.
Stone Mountain Park – Stone Mountain, Georgia
Gotta fit some history in there somewhere right?
Stone Mountain is a really amazing park not only because of the beautiful
I absolutely love the look of this park. The waters look so alive with their nice green color. The forest is so pretty and welcoming.
This is the highest point for miles, and therefore you will have one heck of a view if you head to the top via a hike or riding the cable car.
Parks that are centered around an attraction always are a rank above the rest in my opinion, and this stone mountain is so cool.
When compared to the rocky mountains, places like this are quite destitute of mountains, but when there is any sort of incline it causes some great views. I especially love that there is water right next to the mountain. How cool is that?
Don’t miss out on this one! The views and fun make this park unforgettable for sure!
St. Andrews State Park – Panama City, Florida
Their slogan is “enjoy five distinct ecological landscapes in one stunning location” for a reason. This place is really amazing, and with their improvements that they are going to be finishing on May first of 2019, this place is going to be unforgettable.
Look at those views! How amazing is that?
That water looks so warm and welcoming, who wouldn’t want to add this place to their list?
I know I already have a lot of beach locations on this list, but this one stands out because of how beautiful that beach looks. Go enjoy the warm water and sun!
Sometimes people forget how much fun playing in the sand can be. If you want to really make this place unforgettable, go play in the sand and water with the kids. Get dirty!
Too many adults get boring and stop having fun. Don’t be afraid to make a giant ocean hot tub or sand castle kingdom. Bring a frisbee and go wild. Memories will only last if you make them last. Choose to make a memory.
Tickfaw State Park – Louisiana
Some places are just really pretty, and that’s all they need to be unforgettable. This park is in that category. Many people that visit this park only do it because its really close to New Orleans and need a place to stay on the way there.
They leave the park too early without really enjoying the beauty of everything here. If you watch the drone footage above you will see the potential of what you can experience.
There are some great spots to go canoeing as well as hiking in the lush Louisiana wild. Adventure awaits!
Trackrock Campground and Stables – Chattahoochee National Forest, Georgia
Like horses? This is the place for you. This camping spot is a mom and pop shop that offers horseback trails as well as full hookups for your RV.
If you go and read the reviews people have posted, it can be pretty intense on how much they praise this place. Just give it a quick google and you will see that people say that the campsites are super clean and well groomed, as well as the bathrooms that are considered “immaculate”.
Not a lot of places do this type of thing anymore, but this place does it right. Some kids never get the chance to ride a horse, and this might be their opportunity. Plenty of people go camping, but not enough people really interact with nature.
Riding a horse on a trail is so much fun and really teaches you what it means to be in touch with an animal. I am sure many people will read what I’m saying and laugh because they own horses and this may sound cheesy, but for the rest of us that don’t get the opportunity to ride horses often, it really is an experience to remember.
Experience riding a horse in some of the most beautiful countrysides in America and make some memories that will last!
Williamsburg KOA – Virginia
KOA is known to be a really consistent campsite for RV’s, and this one is no different. I want to throw a KOA in here because they are always so unforgettably easy to use. They always have everything you need in a campsite, and make it easy on you too.
They usually have plenty of campsite activities, but what really makes them great is that they are cheap for longer stays.
If you want to stay in an area for a couple of weeks, then a KOA is your best choice. have a nice little home base and go on your adventures. These KOA’s will feel like home in no time.
I have stated this before, but memories are only memorable if you make them that way, and therefore anywhere can be unforgettable. KOA’s may seem super basic, but the fact that you are with your family in an RV will generate plenty of memories.
There are so many interactions to be had at any campsite, and therefore even a simple KOA can become unforgettable.
This KOA is close to some really cool colonial sites, and that is why I put it on here. Here is some ariel footage of “Colonial Williamsburg”
My Most Unforgettable RV Site:
Cloudland Canyon State Park – The park of my dreams
I am in love with this park, and I think everybody should go there. There is so much adventure to be had, and that is what RV trips are all about.
There is plenty of open space for frisbee and other games, but enough trees to allow for secret adventures in the woods. There are small creeks everywhere, but most importantly are the absolutely stunning waterfalls. Check out these beautiful views of just one of the many waterfalls:
Definitely a place that should be added on any bucket list.
Being from Colorado, I need some altitude variation in any hike I do. I am used to the rocky mountains, where I feel at home. This canyon brings that same rocky mountain feel as well as lush vegetation that will take your breath away. I love getting slightly lost in places like this.
Taking an adventure into my own hands and then finding my way back to my comfy RV to sleep and then repeat the process the next day.
This place seems full of adventure, and I want a piece of it.
Have fun touring the world!
What is a good size RV for state parks? The average permitted length of Recreational Vehicles allowed in state parks is 27 feet, but each state park is different. Some parks don’t allow RV’s at all, but others will accommodate RV’s up to 40 feet in length
How much do RV campsites Cost? $50 will normally get you full hookups for a night, but prices vary depending on the spot and amenities. For just a spot to park an RV without hookups, a small fee is not uncommon, usually no more than $20.
