Tickfaw State Park – Springfield, LA
“Close to Baton Rouge and accessible to New Orleans this is a wonderful State Park. Everything in this park was in excellent condition – nice roads, totally level sites were spacious with picnic tables and fire rings, gorgeous trees, great trails and boardwalks where needed.” – Denise K.


McDowell Mountain Regional Park – Scottsdale, AZ
“This is one of our favorite campgrounds. The sites are huge, mostly level gravel, and well-spaced. There are over 50 miles of excellent trails for mountain biking and hiking.” – Life’s Little Adventures

Washoe Lake State Park – Carson City, NV
“Located just north of Carson City, and a bit further to Reno – this is a great location to base camp and have access to big city amenities. All of the sites are well spaced, offering good bits of privacy and view.” – Technomadia

The Point RV Park – Eugene, OR
“The campground is perfectly situated so that everyone has a lake view. Emigrant Lake meets our criteria of a perfect place. Nice scenic setting and near to an interesting town or city. Ashland is just ten minutes drive away.” – Kate at The Scenic Route

Catalina State Park – Tucson, AZ
“This park is lovely with mesquite trees throughout, and awesome views of the Santa Catalina Mountains. There is soft dirt and little bits of grass throughout, an exception to the normal desert campgrounds which tend to be gravel, and much better for dogs. Very well-kept.” – Island Girl Walkabout

“This state park has it all – hiking, beautiful scenery, an equestrian area and close to services and restaurants but with a nice private feel.” – Denise K.

Grayton Beach State Park – Santa Rosa Beach, FL
“Loved this campground! Many people had recommended Grayton Beach State Park so we arrived with high expectations. All of which were met or exceeded.” – WatsonsWander

“The campground at Grayton Beach is one of the nicest we’ve ever stayed in.” – John

Alderwood RV Resort – Spokane, WA
“We’ve stayed here twice. While we’d prefer boondocking, summer is Spokane is all about insuring the AC has power. Alderwood has a small but adequate laundry, pool, and clean showers.” – John

Hawk’s Nest Tionesta RV & Cabins – Tulelake, CA
“We had a great experience with the owners and the park! Love their attitude for keeping sites spaced out, organized, and not overly crowded. This was a great base camp for exploring nearby Lava Beds and for getting out into the mountains.” – Currently Wandering

White Tank Mountain Regional Park – Waddell, AZ
“There are wonderful hiking trails right off the campground loop that connect throughout the park for what feels like unlimited hiking potential. Saguaro and barrel cacti are everywhere! Just past the campground there is a competitive track for hiking, mountain biking and equestrian use that is great!” – Todd

Winding River Resort – Grand Lake, CO
” A really great place. Clean, quite, plenty of space. Wife loved the horses and did two trail rides. Staff is super friendly, store has a good variety of stuff and memory items.” – Gary
