For the most part, a campground or RV park is just a place to park while you explore an area. That said, some camping locations stand out from the rest, offering exceptional amenities, awesome activities, or something a bit extra.
In this episode, Todd and Dustin talk about the best campsites they’ve ever had and why they loved them.
- Moody Beach RV Campground in Maine — A Thousand Trails park right by the beach.
- Sabal Palm RV Resort in central Florida — Rural park with petting zoo and cows.
- Lake Magic RV Resort in Florida — Encore Park that is part of the Trails Collection. It’s close to Disney and Thousand Trails Orlando.
- Camp Gulf in Florida — Park right on the beach! Literally look out your window and see the ocean.
- Tannehill State Park in Alabama — An old Civil War ironworks. Neat setting with river and buildings.
- Monahans Sandhills State Park in Texas — Sites carved into sand dunes. Lots of fun to play in the sand with sleds and boogie boards.

- Baker’s Hole Campground in Montana — Very near Yellowstone National Park. Reasonable rates and right on the river, but first-come, first-served only.
