By Campendium

Six hundred fifty-six campgrounds received 5 star reviews in May! Check out some of the highlights below.

San Mateo Memorial County Park – Loma Mar, CA

The county memorial park turned out to be a lovely spot in a lush grove of redwood trees. Close to dusk, the fog started to roll in off the ocean, giving a quiet, peaceful feeling. – JJ

Haviland Lake Campground – Durango, CO

On the lake, with lake access for kayaks/canoes/SUP’s down the hill from the site. Amazing views from sun up to sundown. Cannot wait to go back. – Maman325

The Vineyards Campground & Cabins – Grapevine, TX

It was so relaxing watching the geese, ducks and birds on the lake. I think it was our cats favorite place to for that reason. – reeaswheeleverbe

Indian Creek Campground – Cherokee, NC

The site is right beside Bunches Creek and the sound of the water is wonderful. My idea of a perfect campground. – Crobb

Clearwater Forebay Number 2 – Clearwater, OR

This spot. Wow! It truly was beautiful. I had the place to myself for over half the nights I was there. If you like boondocking, this site has to be on the list of places to go! – Jeffrey

Buckeye Creek – Bridgeport, CA

The road curves slightly and you’ll dead end in a beautiful grassy area next to the creek with spectacular views of the Sierras. – Teddi & Roger

South Marcum Campground – Benton, IL

Right on the huge lake. Clean and groomed open areas. Sites are far apart and almost all with shade. – lindy

Hartman Rocks – Gunnison, CO

Beautiful area but requires 4wd if pulling a camper. We were high up and had great views on a totally level site. – Wolfgang

Beaverhead Campground – Dillon, MT

Beautiful Location. Easy Access. Right on the water. Easy pull through or back in sites. Great place. – Ironbutt62

Valley of Fire West – Overton, NV

Nicely located outside the park, easy access and can’t beat free! – Cinn

Tannehill Ironworks Historical State Park – McCalla, AL

An amazing State Park with a wealth of circa 1800’s historical buildings and cabins and of course the Civil War era furnace which is an impressive structure to say the least. – RambleOn

Maumelle Campground – Little Rock, AR

We absolutely loved Maumelle Campground! There are plenty of different sites to choose from, paved and level. So affordable, beautiful and clean, a must! – trh_kamp

Palo Duro Canyon State Park – Canyon, TX

Unbelievable views, amazing staff, nice sites with full hookups, 2 dump stations, horseback riding, tons and tons of hiking and biking trails and did I mention awesome scenery? – EDKARIS

Auxiliary Dam Campground – Lake Isabella, CA

Not only is it free to camp here (with a national park pass), but there are dumpsters, port-o-lets, a freshwater spigot, and even a dump station (for a fee). – WatsonsWander

Mississagi Lighthouse & Campground – Meldrum Bay, ON, Canada

If you plan to camp here for a night or even a week or two, you can be assured that you will do so in a place that will be forever etched into your memory. – SchumacherJack

Richland Dam Recreation Area | Fort Pierre National Grassland – Pierre, SD

This is the granddaddy of all boondocking places. Gorgeous place. Rolling hills and the sunset over the lake is spectacular. – Monica

It’s a really quiet spot with easy access to a variety of trails (paper maps are available at the kiosk by the cave entrance) that can be hiked or mountain biked. – Live Small Ride Free

Hershey Thousand Trails RV Resort – Lebanon, PA

This is one of the nicest Thousand Trails parks we have been to. The location is great for visiting Hershey attractions. – ketah777

Kit Carson Campground | Toiyabe National Forest – Markleeville, CA

We love this campground. Aspen trees , huge granite boulders, & great views of the mountains above. Best camping in the area. – Festerhairball

Curt Gowdy State Park – Cheyenne, WY

CIf you are in the area and enjoy mountain biking, fishing, paddleboarding, hiking, generally beautiful scenery and/or relaxing by a lake…this spot should not be missed. – JessieMonsters

Bear Trap Campground – Magdalena, NM

One group of picnickers came in Sunday for a few hours, otherwise complete isolation and relaxation. Highly recommend for anyone that truly wants a no-signal getaway. – Patrick & Chet

Nolan Tank – Sedona, AZ

This boondocking site was amazing! It was peaceful and quite and the scenery….absolutely breathtaking! We highly recommend this spot and would absolutely go back again! – DestinationNomad

Capitol Reef Overflow – Torrey, UT

Beautiful views and the location couldn’t be any better unless we were actually INSIDE the park. Free camping so close to entrance is amazing especially after a day of driving! – Adventures in Johnson Living

Ponderosa Campground – Antonito, CO

Words don’t do this place justice. Our spot was right on the river, literally 5 feet from it! We will definitely be staying here again next time we are in this part of New Mexico! – EDKARIS
