There are great places to camp all over the United States. In the first year we put over 14,000 miles on the motorhome and traveled to 22 states. This is a collection of the best campgrounds we stayed at our first year of full time RVing. Below is a list of all the campgrounds along with links to posts and videos.

Best Campgrounds

Flagstaff, AZ: National Forest Camping

Dispersed camping in the National Forest ranks high on our list of favorite camping experiences. It’s beautiful, free, quiet and uncrowded. If you like to get away and disconnect, this may be the camping experience your looking for.
