Our favorite campground is a small private park right beside a river. We like it because it is small and quiet and the sites are well spaced so they are very private. Sorry we can't tell you where it is because we like it the way it is .

Too many to mention, but the reasoning is that they have nice scenery, nice facilities, don't charge an arm and a leg, usually next to some kind of water, easy entry and exit.

The one where we own the lot in Indian Acres in Thornburg VA. I can stay as long as I like. Walk to fishing, walk to swimming, walk to tennis, walk to - well you get the picture. Surrounded by trees - see birds, foxes, skunks, deer, squirrels, ducks, geese, etc. I can do lots or nothing at all and can arrive in the middle of the night.

Jekyll Island State Park, GA. Close enough to the ocean to walk to with the dogs and plenty of walking/biking paths around the camp.

I like Mayberry Campground in Mount Airy, NC. It is well planed and the staff very nice. I just wish they get the bath house laundry, that they been planning. Another reason it is where I grew up and have a few relatives there.

I am a boondocker a good part of the time. I like pristine isolated spots with a fantastic view that are not spoiled with noise, smoke from fires, screaming children, ATV's raising dust, etc. where I can watch and listen to nature undisturbed. That is nature is undisturbed.

Or any CG with full hookups and laundry.

I like the Adirondacks in the summer for the good fishing but the really important one is in Crystal River Fl where we flee the rotten northern NY winters.

Hamiltons Fox Lake, Bemidji. Mn
Quiet location
Owner/family managed
Has all the basics
Nice swiming beach
Big icecream cones
Lake is warm enough to actually get in the water
Free canoe and kayak with paddles and life jacket
Windshield washing and air for tires station on the way out
Passport America
rvparkreviews - Probably 9 average.
One reviewer called Hamiltons a secret place you never hear about.
Pay When You Leave. Wow never even heard of a campground doing that.
Big rigs move around OK. But "tight"
Boat dock and ramp
Table and fire pit

If you want high class, fancey, Branson bathrooms, 40 ft wide spaces then this is not for you. Just a great place to stay for a day or a month at very reasnoable prices. Lake front space must be reserved well in advance.

LOL same here. All I can say is it's out in the woods, there is a spring fed pond, it's fairly high in elevation and it is a chunk of heaven.

There is no internet, no cell , no distractions, no interruptions to my solitude and with the motorhome I like it even more than I did with the tent as I can stay longer.

Shenango Valley Camping Resort

A small private campground located in Transfer, Pa in the northwest corner of I79 & I80. Lots are wooded and some are out in the open. The campers staying there are great as well as the people that own it. Nice and peaceful.
