The beauty of owning a motor home is that, when you’re behind the wheel, you have the freedom to go almost anywhere. However, that doesn’t necessarily mean that you’ll actually want to go just anywhere. You want the best! If you’re tired of hitting the same old campgrounds time after time, change things up by visiting one of the following resorts, which are among the best in the United States.
Beaver Dam Campground in Berwick, Maine
Just glancing at the long list of awards that Beaver Dam Campground has to its name should be enough to pique your interest in the park. Taking a look at pictures of the campground, however, is enough to seal the deal. Located on a picturesque, 20-acre pond, Beaver Dam promises to offer an ideal vacation away from the stresses of city life.
That doesn’t mean that your visit has to be free of any fun, though, as the campground boasts such activities as mini golf, canoeing, fishing, and cycling. Plus, with all the amenities that you’d expect in a great campground–including full hook up, Wi-Fi, and even a dog park–there’s no doubt you’ll have a care-free stay at Beaver Dam.
Yosemite National Park in California
Yosemite National Park is one of the most beautiful parks in not just the country, but the entire world. So, it’s natural that camping out here would offer one of the opportunities of a lifetime. There’s a surprising amount of activities you can do here, including biking, hiking, and even golf, but the real reason most visitors come is for the spectacular sights that transcend description.
Yosemite has 13 campsites in total, 10 of which are accessible by motor home. However, you should know that while Yosemite has some of the best views, its campsites don’t get points for convenience for motorhome campers. Unfortunately, they don’t have electrical, water, or sewer hookups, although there are dump stations nearby and limited generator use is allowed on-site. If that doesn’t sound appealing, there are nearby campsites that are still somewhat close to the action and have more of the amenities you might prefer. Do note that Yosemite National Park campgrounds require reservations during the busy season, which lasts from April to September.
Petoskey Motorcoach Resort in Petoskey, Michigan
Petoskey, Michigan is a hotspot for quality motorhome camping, but Petoskey Motorcoach Resort may just be the creme de la creme. Combining the beautiful natural features of Northern Michigan with the professional upkeep of a top-of-the-line resort, this campground simply screams luxury. Along with the immaculately-kept grounds, the resort features five-star amenities that include a tennis court, 9-hole putting course, and pool and spa.
While it may be difficult to leave the pampered experience of the resort, nearby attractions like Sleeping Bear Dunes, Mackinac Island, and Traverse City will beckon you to explore. Tip: try to make your trip in autumn to see the leaves change color – truly a spectacular sight.
America is a big place, and there are many, many campgrounds that offer a large variety of experiences. While the resorts on this list are definite must-visits, there are plenty more out there! Sometimes, the best places you can find are the ones you stumble across serendipitously. The only way to find out is by packing up, jumping in your motorhome, and hitting the road.
