5 Star Campgrounds: March 2015

By Campendium

Eighty-one campgrounds received 5 star reviews this month! Here are some of the highlights:


Camp Creek Campground – Rhododendron, OR

Built by the Civilian Conservation Corps, Camp Creek is like a land of fairy tales. The forest around here is amazing and the sound of a constantly flowing creek nearby let’s you know that this is what camping is all about. – Dan


Blue Lake – La Veta, CO

One of our most favorite National Forest campgrounds. We have camped here more than 6 time in the past 10 years. – PHIL


Wrights Beach – Bodega Bay, CA

We enjoyed our time here. We stayed the last weekend of Feb. The weather was sublime and the wind was just a breeze. – Airstream On Safari


Oliver Lee Memorial State Park – Alamogordo, NM

The state park is nestled right up on the mountains at the base of Dog Canyon, and pretty much everywhere in the campground has a perfect sunset view of the Tularusa Basin and the Organ Mountains. – The Democratic Travelers


Boulder Creek RV Resort – Lone Pine, CA

This was a great place so glad we found it and in the morning there was even fresh baked muffins and coffee for the guests! – Chris


Juniper Family Campground – Los Alamos, NM

Great campground at Bandelier National Monument. Wasn’t crowded at all during my stay in June, 2014. – Marshall


Anastasia State Park – St. Augustine, FL

This campground has it all. Beautiful, private wooded sites, a network of walking trails, a pristine beach, and close proximity to historic downtown St. Augustine. Upon entry we were in awe of the giant live oak trees dripping with moss that line the main campground road. – WatsonsWander


Cholla Campground – Tonto Basin, AZ

Cholla Campground (Staghorn Loop to be specific) has proven to be a great spot to camp. The price is cheap enough to still be considered “cheap” ($6 per day Tonto Pass required, no additional fee for camping) yet you get a proper camp site with trash, nearby water (not in each site), shaded picnic table, fire ring, bathroom, luke-warm showers, and enough privacy to make it all worthwhile. – Van-Tramp


Cobscook Bay State Park – Dennysville, ME

Cobscook Bay state park is located on a peninsula jutting into Cobscook Bay, and therefore it’s surrounded by water on 3 sides. One of the most popular remote campgrounds in Maine, the best sites are reserved as soon as the reservation window opens every year. – Juan


Fort Worden State Park – Port Townsend, WA

We stayed two days in Port Townsend, a very quaint Victorian town on the Puget Sound. Our campsite was located in Fort Worden where they filmed “Officer and a Gentlemen” back in the 80’s. We loved the park and exploring the area. – Scott


Cieneguita Camp Area – Elgin, AZ

We camped at Las Cienegas National Conservation Area Cieneguita Camp Area in the 2nd camp site on the right. It was a huge pull-through that had nice view of the valley toward the north. All of the sites here are very secluded thanks to the many mesquite in the area. – Dawn


Point of View RV Park – Key Largo, FL

It’s expensive, but as far as expensive campgrounds go, you really do get what you pay for here. This is one of the few RV “resorts” that I would say actually deserved the name “resort”. Beautiful location, pool overlooking the ocean, sitting areas on the beach, immaculately maintained. – HereForTheBeer


El Morro National Monument – Ramah, NM

The staff is friendly and will check in to see how you’re doing if you’re outside. There are a couple of nice hikes available from the Visitor Center, which is about a mile from the campsite. I would definitely stay there again. – VagabondTabby


Torreya State Park – Bristol, FL

What we love about nature and this life style is hiking. So this park ranks among the others as having the best hiking of all! And that is because it reminds us of the Appalachian Trail in Virginia, or the Boone Trail in North Carolina. – Tumble-Lees


Poche’s Fish & Camp – Breaux Bridge, LA

The campsites are arranged around a large fishing pond lined with Cypres trees. Most of the sites are back ins with a paved pad, full hookups, and WiFi. There are 3 pull through sites. There are several ponds for fishing, a clubhouse, swimming pool, and laundry. The staff was great. – wanderingdawgs


Study Butte RV Park – Terlingua, TX

Here, there was a community feel, everyone was SOOOO friendly, had great travel stories and helpful tips for a newbie, and when the wind kicked up and nobody could have a fire, Dave invited all into his (onsite) home for hanging by the fireplace and live music(which was performed by a guy named Marcel, toured with Willy Nelson in the 80s, and another man from CA that had a sound eerily similar to Alexi Murdoch), it was AWESOME!! – jol31644


South Carlsbad State Beach – Carlsbad, CA

Who doesn’t love amazing ocean views?!! I love this campground. Half the sites overlook the ocean, while the other half are close to highway 101 and have a lot of road noise. Worst part of this campground is that reservations are difficult to get during prime season! But once you get here is is heavenly. – Aluminum Twinkie


Toketee Campground – Idleyld Park, OR

We had this place to ourselves in early March. The Lake is not really much to see but the river is nice. Solar could be tricky in most sites. Very close to the trailhead that will take you to the spectacular Toketee Falls. Don’t miss this short walk to a platform suspended in a tree overlooking the falls. – Adventures of Dave and Ann
