RV Campsite Recommendations

We're about to embark on a long journey that will take us from Florida-Massachusettes close to the east coast, then across to Minnesota (by way of Buffalo, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, etc.) and back to Florida through the 'east-middle' of the country (Des Moines, Omaha, Indy, Nashville, Atlanta, etc.).

Does anyone have any great RV campsite recommendations that have power/water hook-ups and include a natural park-like setting with shade, safety, hopefully some privacy, and possibly activities for the kids?

Thanks in advance!

If you don't mind doing a bit of your own research, you might check out the Corps Lakes Gateway at www.CorpsLakes.us - Corps Lakes Gateway

I've stayed at CoE campgrounds in Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, and Texas so far, and haven't been disappointed once. Every one of them has included a playground— not that it matters to me, being single and all. Shade of course will vary from place to place depending on terrain, but I have yet to stay at one that didn't have at least partial shade for most campsites. Very few have sewer hookups, most have electric and water and a dump station. And the price is very competitive as well, typically in the range of $18-$26 per night. Most accept the America the Beautiful Senior Pass (formerly Golden Age Passport) for half-price, if you're old enough to be eligible for it.

Hi from AZ. . . Since your travels include the Eastern third of the country, or better, you will pass hundreds of campgrounds, RV resorts, and state parks. Almost all of these are on line and many (Woodalls, KOA, etc) have apps you can use on a smart phone. So pick your route, work on time frame, and narrow it down some. We always check 'rvparkreviews.com' for folks opinions on stops. Enjoy your trip, and regards, Craig

Thanks to both responses so far. I have done a ton of research online and read lots of reviews for places I'm considering. Just wondering if people had any can't miss gems they would recommend in the regions we're covering.

I like. RVParkreviews.com. Type in a place, get reviews. I generally ignore the worst review and the best review and go by what's between. Seldom been wrong...

Have fun,

Mike

We are near Buffalo, just across the river, so here are our recommendations near us:


Buffalo/Niagara Falls/Rochester Area:
4 Mile Creek State Park
Hamlin Beach State park
Lakeside Beach State Park


Finger Lakes Area:
Watkins Glen State Park
Watkins Glen KOA
Holiday Hill Campground


and of course Letchworth!


I've also heard great things about the Canandigua/Rochester KOA and the
Meadville PA KOA.


We're going the Allegheny for the firs time this summer and will report.


Have fun, sounds like a great trip.

When you travel through Ohio any of the state parks are a good bet.

In the event you just need a (free over-nite-rv-parking) place to stop for the night check out www.OvernightRVParking.com. No worries of evictions, tickets,or being towed. There is a small annual subscription fee, but well worth it in my view. Check the review by rvgeeks on Youtube. Have a great and safe trip!

Hello-
When you travel to Minnesota, hope you will camp at the Minnesota Airstream Park which is a wonderful park-like setting with trees and more trees & with many friendly Airstreamers to welcome you! Check out the website for more info! Hope to see you at the Minnesota Airstream Park on Hwy 10 just west of Becker, MN.
Minnesota Airstream Park — The Midwest's only Airstream-only RV resort.
