Favorite Camping Sites

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. 



  • 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. 
  • Rockhound State Park in New Mexico — This one has beautiful views. It’s on the side of a mountain, so you can look down into the valley. The perfect place to collect rocks and gems. 
  • City of Rocks State Park in New Mexico — Large, monolithic rocks in the side of the hill. You park in between them, and kids love to clamber through them. Great hiking as well!
  • Boondocking in Moab, Utah — Very popular place for boondocking, and plenty of spots available. Right by Arches National Park and other outdoor recreation.
  • Pirate Cove RV Resort in Arizona — Gorgeous park on the Colorado River. Go during the winter for fewer crowds and decent monthly rates. 


  • Harbor Vista County Park in Oregon — Very reasonably priced county park right on the Pacific. Hear the ocean from your site and hike right down to the beach. 
  • Tall Chief RV and Camping Resort in Washington — An Encore park that is part of the Trails Collection. This one is close to Seattle for city exploration. 
  • Baker’s Hole Campground in Montana — Very near Yellowstone National Park. Reasonable rates and right on the river, but first-come, first-served only. 
  • Teddy Roosevelt National Park in North Dakota — Amazing national park with buffalo that walk right through the campground. Sites are unusually large for a national park.
  • Eugene T. Mahoney State Campground in Nebraska — Wonderful state park with a water park and a huge game room. Perfect for kids!


  • Crater of Diamonds State Park in Arkansas — Beautiful state park with a diamond field attached. Guests can rent shovels and buckets and mine for diamonds.
