Top RV Parks & Resorts You Won’t Want to Miss

Can you believe it’s almost 2020?

That means many things, but most of all, it means it’s time to plan out your summer RV road trips, perhaps for some camping near you. Or, perhaps for some out-of-the-way spots you’ve always wanted to visit but haven’t yet.

Here are some suggestions for the new year.

Big Rig RV Park Campground in Sturgis, South Dakota — Planning on hitting the big bike rally? This campground is one of the best in South Dakota to sleep off the shenanigans, with amazing views of the Black Hills, and it’s just three minutes away from Downtown Sturgis. It also has Wi-Fi that “actually works,” according to the website.

Gulf State Park Campground in Alabama — Nearly 500 RV sites, options to sit lakefront or in the woods, and easy access to the 25-mile Branyon Backcountry Trail (where park naturalists offer guided nature walks) make this a great place to stay. There are also air-conditioned bath houses, tennis courts, a swimming pool, and kayak and bike rentals. Gulf State also offers two miles of beaches with white sand, sea shells, and seagulls.

Lums Pond State Park in Delaware — This campsite features a 200-acre pond, so there’s hiking, fishing, and boating. But, the highlight is an adventure course in the trees complete with obstacles, zip lines, and climbs far off the ground. You can even cross the water with the Zigzag Trapeze, Flying Carpet (we’re skeptical but it could be real), and Tarzan swings in addition to the zip lines.

Mount Rushmore Resort and Lodge in South Dakota — You’ll see some of South Dakota’s most famous sites such as Mount Rushmore and Crazy Horse Memorial from your RV. And as for the resort – it’s set in the Black Hills at the state’s highest point. The resort also features a water park, regular movie screenings, bike rentals, a kid’s zone, and horseback riding.

Fontainebleau State Park in Louisiana— This campground has more than 150 sites, some with sewage, electric, and water, as well as a sandy beach and nature trail with signs detailing the trees and birds. Prices are reasonable, too, from $18 to $33 a night. If you like history, this state park was built on the remains of an old sugar mill built in 1829.

Fort Abraham Lincoln State Park in North Dakota — As the name implies, there’s lots of history here, as this is where Lt. Col. Custer and his cavalry left for Little Big Horn. But the beautiful views of the Missouri River should keep you there.

Double RR Ranch RV Resort in Michigan — This is the place to be if you like to combine fun on the river with fun in your RV. There are chances to kayak, canoe, or tube on the Flat River near Grand Rapids. There’s also horseback riding, Saturday night hayrides, and sports such as volleyball, softball, golf, or basketball.

Huntington Beach State Park in South Carolina — This is known as one of the best places for birding in the county, in all seasons. And it’s easy to see why, with gorgeous views of the Atlantic Ocean beach, nature trails, and many different spots to see birds in varying habitat.

Grand Canyon Railway RV Park — The Grand Canyon is a must-see for anyone who likes to travel - even a little bit. This place will allow you to stretch your toes in comfort after what we hope is a long day exploring. This RV park provides you with a digital TV (bring a digital tuner), free Wi-Fi (that actually works, apparently), an indoor swimming pool and hot tub, and a pet resort for your dog, cat, or iguana. There are also activities in case you somehow get bored with the Grand Canyon.

Wine Country RV Resort in Paso Robles, California — Yes, there’s a resort that not only lets you drink wine, it encourages it, and the wine isn’t out of a box. This is in the San Luis Obispo County wine region, and the resort features an on-site wine garden with dancing, live entertainment and, of course, drinking. There’s also a short drive to several hot springs, as well as the kind of things you’d expect from a wine place, with tours, golf, and a water park. There are many amenities, such as a swimming pool and hot tub, a playground for the kids, and a game room.

Odetah Camping Resort in Connecticut — This resort offers the kind of luxury you aren’t used to at an RV resort, or even many hotels outside of Vegas. There’s facials, massages, and pedicures. There’s also a movie theater, splash park, restaurants, and an outdoor pool. You may not want to leave, but if you do, the resort is close to lakes and beaches where you can swim, fish, or rent canoes or other boats.
