If you are looking for a bit more privacy and spectacular views when camping, you may want to pass on the typical RV parks. Instead, you could explore the plethora of other public parks our beautiful country boasts!
Before you hit the road though, you may want to investigate the intended park’s campsites and if your RV will fit. Camper Report did extensive research saving you time and potential embarrassing moments. Click here for Camper Report’s video on what lengths are best for parks like these. You can also check out Camper Report’s full report here.
After you know your RV size, here are a few options of camping wilderness to consider…
National Park Service
Check out this link to search for National Parks in your state or any other state you are thinking of visiting. If you already know the names of the parks you are interested in, this same link will provide more information about the park you selected.
If you are like us and plan on visiting many National Parks within the next year, you may want to invest in their annual pass giving you access to all the National Parks. This expense is just $80 and well worth it. National Park Service also offers other passes that may suit your adventurous needs.
US Forest Service
Similarly, camping at a National Forest may beckon your adventurous spirit. If so, check out the US Forest Service’s site for more information. You can also search for places to see and things to do through their site. Check it out here!

What about if you want to visit or camp in a state park? Here is a helpful site to get you started. It’s called America’s Parks. What I love about this site is once you click on the State you are interested it, if you click on the region, this site will list for you the State parks within that specific region of the State, which saves you much research time. Be sure to find out what the fees are to camp and what the deal is with RVs staying there. Some states offer annual passes saving you bundles – this is particularly appealing to full-timers like us!
Overall, National Parks, US Forest Parks, and State Parks are some pretty sweet and affordable options just waiting for you to explore or even to call home!
