Jumbo Rocks Campground – Joshua Tree National Park, CA

Amazing dark skies and night filled with stars under a campfire made this campground one of our favorite spots to go, we are already trying to plan our return trip! – 5wheelmike

Hideaway Campground And Oyster Market – Dingwall, NS, Canada

I really didn’t want to leave this jewel of a place!. The Cabot Trail is a fantastic area to explore and this is the best campground to stay at hands down! – Shawna at Adventure Motorcycle Routes

Falls Creek Falls Camping Area – Carson, WA

A short trip up a good gravel road brings you to a hunter’s camp with room for several vehicles. Stayed here in late August and never saw another vehicle. – NapaTony

Bullards Beach State Park – Bandon, OR

This is a three-loop campground, with plenty of room for bigger rigs than mine. Plenty of camp host volunteers to keep sites and bathrooms clean, and the free showers are great. – Annie

Fort Pickens Campground – Pensacola Beach, FL

Nice campground with great access to beaches, nature trails, and of course Fort Pickens. Biking and hiking opportunities are abundant. The beaches are fantastic. – David

Whirlpool Dispersed Camping Area – Abiquiu, NM

It’s a beautiful spot, with several sites right on the banks of the Rio Chama. Peaceful doesn’t begin to describe it. – String

Camp Yale – Mckenzie Bridge, OR

The campground was nicely tucked away off the highway and surrounded by trees. Very peaceful and quiet even when full over the weekend. – Scott

Willow Flat Campground – Moab, UT

This tiny 12-site campground deep in the Island in the Sky District is first come, first served so you’d better get here early. – Chris&David

Northern Plains Campground – Pueblo, CO

The sites are large and positioned in a way that looks like every one of them has a view of the mountains or lake. – LibbysOnTheLoose

St. Vrain State Park – Longmont, CO

South Beach State Park – Newport, OR

There are several trails to the beach, and a paved bike trail to the aquarium and jetty for those who like to hike or ride bikes. The beach itself feels endless to the south. – Annie

Fritch Fortress Campground – Fritch, TX

Wow, all this and free. – water view – trash service – dump and fresh water – clean modern bathrooms with free showers – over the air tv – good Verizon and ATT service – 20 minutes to a National Monument. – KenneysSeeAmerica

Heaton Bay Campground – Silverthorne, CO

Found staying in the bay quiet, enjoyed viewing osprey and walking the trails around the shore. – Rusty

Camino Cove Campground – Pollock Pines, CA

This spot was fantastic. The lake was beautiful and so was the area. This was my favorite camp site that we have found on this website so far. – glasgows_onthego

South Beach – Corpus Christi, TX

We have spent many weekends and extended trips to Padre Island Nat’l. Seashore in the past year or so since we bought our first Airstream. – markfreeborn

Fish Creek Pond Campground – Saranac Lake, NY

Every site is lakeside! I’d stay here again but probably late season only. I bet summer is packed! – GinaDog

Lake Shastina Campground – Lake Shastina, CA

There are fun walks stepping right outside your front door. The sunsets were awesome and the views of Mt. Shasta were spectacular. – 33andfree

Government Springs (GH1) – Big Bend National Park, TX

I wanted to get to Big Bend for some of their off-road sites. I paid $12 for the permit, but it is for 14 days. The views were awesome and it feels remote. – mf01

Odessa Campground – Klamath Falls, OR

There are only a few sites, and all are pretty small, but the campground is worth a stay. Far enough from the highway that all you hear are the birds. – Van-Tramp

Hilton Head Harbor RV Resort & Marina – Hilton Head Island, SC

This is a beautiful RV park! We picked a nice spacious site with some trees for shade and also a little bit of privacy. It was wonderful! – ketah777

Forkland Campground – Forkland, AL

Quiet and secluded campground. Saw Bluebirds, Wood Peckers, Snowy Egrets, Great Blue Heron, and many more. – David

Algoma Campground – McCloud, CA

Amazing view, location and very quiet. Hard to believe it was free. I’d stay here for an extended period if time allowed. – Donald Shade

Pittsburg Campground – White Bird, ID

We camped here in late September and had a fantastic time. The campground is popular among fisherman and jet boaters as there is a nice boat launch right there. – NomadicNeighbors
