Sage Bluff Campground Lake Cascade State Park
Sage Bluff Campground | Lake Cascade State Park – Cascade, ID

Each site has a picnic table, grill and water, but no other hookups. However, the view out over the lake was priceless. One of the nicer places we have stayed this year. – RudiOnTheRoad

Gros Ventre Campground Grand Teton National Park
Gros Ventre Campground | Grand Teton National Park – Jackson, WY

We were not given an option of generator/no generator and didn’t get one of the sites that had gorgeous views, but still very satisfied. The site was asphalt and roomy. No hookups. Enough sun for solar. – tacksonthedeck

Watchman Campground Zion National Park
Watchman Campground | Zion National Park – Springdale, UT

The campground has good shade and is surrounded by beautiful Zion mountains. The location is within walking distance of Springdale and most importantly, the brewery. There you can also catch the shuttles into the park. – SScheetz

Gorgeous views, amazing hikes are all around. You can absolutely make this drive in an RV if you are comfortable behind the wheel. – JPRodibaugh

West Mesa Road Dispersed BLM
West Mesa Road Dispersed | BLM – Fort Stanton, NM

The camping area has amazing views and infrequent/distant road noise. We only stayed one night but I would love to come back to the area and spend more time. – outbackescapades.fun

Star Hope Creek Dispersed Camping Salmon-Challis National Forest
Star Hope Creek Dispersed Camping | Salmon-Challis National Forest – Mackay, ID

So many possibilities for dispersed camping in this area – a number are along creeks, wooded or sunny, take your pick – easy to find. This Copper Basin area is beautiful and remote. – Gatta

Scoria Pit Dispersed Camping Little Missouri National Grassland
Scoria Pit Dispersed Camping | Little Missouri National Grassland – Medora, ND

Great Boondocking spot close to TRNP. We were able to get here relatively easy with our 36ft motorhome and even didn’t disconnect our flat towed car we were pulling. – @ZulaLife

 Chantilly Farm Campground RV Park

Great campground with amazing views and spacious sites. We stayed in a dry camp rv area called hilltop with amazing views of the mountains. – paddlemule

Big Creek Campground Olympic National Forest
Big Creek Campground | Olympic National Forest – Hoodsport, WA

Big Creek is about halfway between Hoodsport and Staircase, so you have easy access to both whether by vehicle or bicycle. Within the immediate campground there were the usual birds, butterflies, squirrels, and no mosquitos to speak of. – Promising Sojourn

Sunset Point RV Park
Sunset Point RV Park – Lubec, ME

Great little private campground! Folks come here for the water views of Johnson Bay, and almost every site has one! Sunsets also live up to the park’s name. – The Taste For Adventure

Brooks Lake Dispersed Camping Shoshone National Forest
Brooks Lake Dispersed Camping | Shoshone National Forest – Dubois, WY

These sites are about 100 to 150 feet higher than the NFS campground and the sites (yes there are actually designated sites, many with fire rings here). The nice thing about this area is that the sites are pretty widely separated. – Wolfgang

Tallahassee RV Park
Tallahassee RV Park – Tallahassee, FL

Very neatly kept, I was impressed when I saw the gravel pads being raked after a RV departure. The trees were beautiful and provided lots of shade. – Jim & his T@B

Goodell Creek Campground North Cascades National Park
Goodell Creek Campground | North Cascades National Park – Marblemount, WA

This is a very nice campground that is right on the Skagit river. We had access to a small beach on the river. I highly recommend staying here as it was beautiful! – RVwithRandC

Singletree Campground Fishlake National Forest
Singletree Campground | Fishlake National Forest – Torrey, UT

The fee is $12/night, but with the Interagency National Park Annual Pass you get half off, so we only paid $6/night. The sites are fairly spaced out. Pretty wooded area. Overall, this was an awesome place to stay. – MarlaSinger

Ojibwa Campground & Recreation Area
Ojibwa Campground & Recreation Area

Good stop over for us. Could have stayed longer but had reservations so only 2 nights here. Sites have fire ring and table along with a great view of the bay. – Rin

Cabin Hollow Dispersed Camping
Cabin Hollow Dispersed Camping | Dixie National Forest – Panguitch, UT

What a striking location! Just a few minutes to Bryce Canyon NP. And the walks at the Red Canyon Visitors Center are beautiful. We loved it there. – Sue G

Blodgett Campground
Blodgett Campground | Bitterroot National Forest – Hamilton, MT

Free campground next to some amazing hiking. You have the beautiful Bitterroot Mountains all around you, a creek flowing nearby, and most of the sites are paved so there’s hardly any dust. The campground is fantastic. -thecampingnerd

Cheyenne Mountain State ParkCheyenne Mountain State Park | Colorado State Park -Colorado Springs, CO

Spacious, clean, quiet, and relaxing. We spent 14 days here in August and it was wonderful. Highly recommended state park. Come and enjoy! – Kris Hodges

Brown's Owens River CampgroundBrown’s Owens River Campground | RV Park -Mammoth Lakes, CA

If you are fly fishing you can cast all day long. We saw many other campers get on the mellow river with tubes and paddle boards, so there is a lot more to do than just fish. -MB
