Three hundred forty five campgrounds received 5 star reviews in September. Check out the highlights below.


North Trout Lake Road – Ophir, CO

Gorgeous San Juan site close to Telluride. We picked a spot right next to the historic Trout Lake (railroad) Trestle with spectacular views of Mt. San Miguel. – Marc Guido


Sutton Campground – Florence, OR

This may be the best national forest campground we’ve ever stayed at.The sites are quite secluded even when they are close together. – NomadikCulture


Ingalls Homestead Campground – De Smet, SD

We just finished a two month trip that included Yellowstone and the Grand Canyon, but my kids will probably tell you that the Ingalls Homestead was their favorite stop. – BoxyColonial


Brick House Campground – Whitmire, SC

Secluded, and our door opens to the woods. Towering pines mixed with oak trees, with the smell of pine in the air. Quick walk to a trail, which was gorgeous. – RVWanderlust


Kachess Campground – Snoqualmie Pass, WA

Kachess Lake Campground is a fantastic spot about five miles off of Interstate 90. There was a great swimming beach 100 yards or less from our site. – NoelJoy


Badger Creek Campground – Marble Canyon, AZ

Beautiful views of the Colorado River and the Vermilion Clifs. Here in early September and the weather is just perfect, a little overcast but still warm. – McGee.Ventures


Steinaker State Park – Vernal, UT

Our site is on top of a ridge and we can watch the sunrise by just opening the shades. The geology of this place is amazing and apparent from our perch here at the reservoir. – gypsy1


Hook Lake Campground – McConnelsville, OH

This camp ground is very quiet. Cell service was shakey but great camping for sure. Will be back very soon. – Wee Bee Campers of America


Forest Road 272 – Nathrop, CO

There’s no water, electric or dump station, as it’s the San Isabel National Forest, but it’s a boondocker’s dream! I listened to elk bugling and a pack of coyotes – that was as noisy as it got! – PhotoTrippingAmerica


Belle Fourche Campground – Devils Tower, WY

If you have a National Parks Pass, you can’t beat this place. If you can comfortably dry camp, this place is wonderful. – CeeGee


Trumbull Lake Campground – Lee Vining, CA

The lake is well stocked with trout so the fishing is very good whether your fish flies, bait, or lures and the scenery is hard to beat. – Digby’s Doghouse


Teal Campground – Pagosa Springs, CO

Teal Campground has the best mountain view you could ask for and it sits right next to Williams Reservoir, it’s amazing! – bigbueller


Red Shale Campground – Ashland, MT

This was a great spot to enjoy the view, go for a walk, take pictures of wildlife, lots of birds, coyote calls off in the distance in the evenings. – J. I. M.


Valentine Lake Northshore Campground – Boyce, LA

Gold nugget for boondocking. Very peaceful and secluded. Plenty of room between sites. – The Lamberts


Hat Creek Campground – Hot Springs, SD

We loved this site because it backed up right on the water, affording us a beautiful view! – AlVie AlBums


Race Point ORV Beach Camping – Provincetown, MA

The Cape Cod National Seashore allows camping on the beach at Race Point, up on the northern tip of Cape Cod by Provincetown. The camping is literally on the beach, feet from the ocean. – TigerNomad


Matterhorn Campground – Ophir, CO

Site 7 is really nice without any neighbors nearby. There is no campground in Telluride for 30’+ rigs so this made a great home base. – Nosh Bus


Deception Pass State Park – Oak Harbor, WA

Simply amazing. I would suggest the Old Forest Loop. It can handle up to 42 fool class A’s. Old growth Sprue, cedar, and Douglas Fir. – US Highway


Farewell Bend State Park – Huntington, OR

We came here after several weeks of busy exploring in Washington and Oregon. There is nothing to do in this area, but that is just what we needed… a week of downtime. – ketah777


Kents Lake Campground – Beaver, UT

In our opinion, campsite 20 had the best view and was the most isolated in the entire campground. The tent pad was a bit of a hike down the hill, but the view out the door each morning was worth the trek. – pinkpigeon


Minnie Peterson Campground – Forks, WA

Small, quaint, picturesque sort-of free campground! (Have to have the Washington $30 discovery pass). – Rv Chickadee


Sunset Campground – Kyburz, CA

This is such a beautiful place! There are sites all around the peninsula with beach access. It fills up on the weekend (and the summer), but we were lucky to be there in September when it was very quiet. – Road it up


Mountain View Campground – Hiawassee, GA

Friendly, helpful campground owners, spacious sites, beautiful views, and even lightning fast wifi. Immaculate bathhouse, nice landscaping, close to shopping and restaurants. – BoxyColonial
