One hundred forty six campgrounds received 5 star reviews in February. Check out the highlights below:


Ocean Cove Store & Campground – Jenner, CA

We just happened to snatch up one of the best ones, right on the edge of the bluff, overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Quiet (this time of the year) and well kept, we couldn’t have asked for anything more. – Van-Tramp


W.P. Franklin Campground – Alva, FL

This is a delightful park – lovely scenery, waterfront sites with unobstructed clear views and pretty darn peaceful. – Technomadia


Rincon Country RV Resort East – Tucson, AZ

An amazing amount of activities are offered to residents and transients alike. Residents seem very friendly and hospitable. I would strongly recommend this place for a long term stay. – MrSafetyToo


Goose Island State Park – Rockport, TX

Goose Island State Park is a nice quiet park with wildlife (mostly birds), nature trails, fishing pier, and access to the Aransas Bay for kayaking/fishing. – SprinterTexans


Dead Lakes Recreation Area – Wewahitchka, FL

We were totally surprised by this site. It’s beautiful, very clean, and well taken care of. It’s kind of in the middle of nowhere, so if you’re looking for somewhere quiet, this is your spot! – nuventuretravels


Forest Road 687 – Tombstone, AZ

Beautiful peaceful spot up against the mountains. It is about a 30 min drive on a pretty rough and bumpy road…but so worth it. Get to Tombstone in 20-30 min. We love it! – The Family Can


Bayside Campground – Navarre, FL

Sites are large and right on the water. Nice Sandy beach. Free is great- much nicer than others we have paid for in the same general area. – SunriseAcre


Aspen Campground – Payson, AZ

Beautiful Campground in the Forest. The campsite pads are paved with large areas of open space and trees around many sites. – RetiredVagabond


Campo Turistico #1 – San Felipe, BC, Mexico

We passed all the other campos in San Felipe over the course of our stay, and I must say that this one is the most beautiful. – Meant For Adventure


Deep Creek Preserve – Arcadia, FL

What could you ask for in free camping? Fire ring, picnic table, even water for your horses if you have pets that big. – Frank R.


California City Off-Road Area – California City, CA

It is beautiful desert terrain, mostly flat and hard packed. The real beauty is at night when all the stars come out. You are far from all the lights of LA and can see all the stars! – Slboch


Sierra Vista Campground – Las Cruces, NM

This is a small BLM campsite in the newly designated Organ Mountains – Desert Peaks National Monument. We stayed for a week and had a handful of other campers and hikers come through during the week but still felt a great deal of peace and quiet at our site. – NomadicNeighbors


Chiriaco Summit-Patton Museum – Chiriaco Summit, CA

This place is free dry camping! The sites are back behind the General Patton museum. The museum is awesome, $6 or free for active military. – Robert and Michelle


Hueco Tanks State Park & Historic Site – El Paso, TX

It was a little out of our way but so worth it. A very peaceful park. – Cindy


Indian Bread Rocks – Bowie, AZ

Indian Bread Rocks is the ideal boondocking location for us. It has beautiful scenery, easy access to hiking and peace & quiet. – Drivin’ & Vibin’


Nelson Creek Recreation Area – Circle, MT

I stayed at Nelson Creek Recreation Area on a summer weeknight, and it’s perhaps the best boondocking spot I’ve ever been to. – webster


Sutton Campground – Florence, OR

This was a lovely campground in the Siuslaw National Forest. Many spots have fantastic privacy with thick vegetation (super tall trees). – webster


Bastrop State Park – Bastrop, TX

The campsites on the loop by the playground are pretty darn new and all pull-through. They are up on a ridge so there is a little of a view. – Stinapete


Lithia Springs Park – Lithia, FL

There are also open/public areas with grills, playgrounds and natural springs you can swim in. There is a creek for canoeing as well! – RNYC


Oliver Lee Memorial State Park – Alamogordo, NM

The views to the west across the desert are amazing, and the Sacramento mountains behind the camp are picturesque and also the start of some great hikes. – Annie


West Ironwood Road – Cochise, AZ

Walking distance from a small climbing area and lots of other beautiful spots through a 4 X 4 road. It is just over 2 miles from the campground and trailhead for Cochise Traverse Trail. – Road it up
