Summer is finally here, and the outdoors-obsessed users of The Dyrt — the No. 1 app for camping availability, photos and reviews — are answering the call of the open road. For those who prefer to bring their own creature comforts with them into the wild, RV travel is more than a great way to see some of America’s most beautiful places: It’s a way of life.

“Interest in RV camping continues to grow, and our users have really embraced RVs as a great way to travel the country,” says The Dyrt founder Sarah Smith. “It’s amazing to see longtime RV travelers and a new generation of RVers come together around the campfire. It just goes to show that the quintessential American camping vehicle has an enduring magic.”

While RVers often park in the wilderness, a great RV park is the ideal place to meet fellow travelers, hook up to much-needed amenities and set up base camp near America’s most awe-inspiring destinations.

To find the best RV parks and resorts in America, The Dyrt teamed up with the good neighbors at State Farm to identify standout locations that go above and beyond.

The Dyrt’s 2024 Best Places to RV presented by State Farm

1. Anchor Down RV Resort — Tennessee

Location: Dandridge

What makes it great: With sweeping Great Smoky Mountain views from the shores of Lake Douglas and amenities ranging from hot tubs to boat and golf-cart rentals, Anchor Down takes top honors thanks to its combination of scenic beauty and comfort. RV sites offer full hookups and perks ranging from fireplaces to waterfront views.

Whether enjoying thrilling watersports or just kicking back with a fishing pole, Anchor Down’s 175-site slice of Tennessee paradise is a prime destination for families and solo travelers alike. While the campground is surrounded by the densely forested beauty of the Appalachian wilderness, it’s also a scenic mountain drive from one of the state’s liveliest cities: Pigeon Forge. That means guests at Anchor Down can experience the magic of Dollywood, treat themselves to a fantastic meal and still be back to their campsite in time for twilight s’mores.

Anchor Down RV Resort was previously named No. 3 in The Dyrt’s 2023 Best Places to Camp in the Southeast Region.

What The Dyrt’s community of campers has to say:

“Beautiful property with fantastic views of Lake Douglas. Cleanest RV park we have ever visited, and the staff was top notch. Sites are level with easy to reach hookups. We splurged on a premium site, but all the sites have a great view.” — Norman M.

“This was the cleanest, well maintained, friendliest and most beautiful campground we have visited so far. The staff was great.” — Tim M.

2. RoadRunner Travelers RV Park — Texas

Location: Terlingua

What makes it great: With 57 RV sites ranging from deluxe full-hookup spots to boondocking options with minimal amenities, RoadRunner offers a full immersion in the rustic, otherworldly expanses of the Big Bend region.

RoadRunner is the ideal base camp for adventurers seeking to explore the wonders of this southwestern Texas destination: It’s a mere four miles from the gates of Big Bend National Park and a stone’s throw from the natural splendor of Big Bend Ranch State Park. Meanwhile, the surrounding area is home to great BBQ and even a haunting and historic ghost town.

With 40 acres to explore, RoadRunner is also the perfect place to take in a galactic lightshow. The region is home to some of the darkest skies in the Lower 48, and its status as an International Dark Sky Reserve means RoadRunner’s well-maintained sites double as front-row seats to some of the best stargazing in the U.S.

What The Dyrt’s community of campers has to say:

“They have created a dog park area which turned out to be great for dogs and humans to make new friends. One evening we even had a sing along around a fire with a local cowboy and anyone who wanted to join! This will be our only place to stay in Terlingua area!” — Candie M.

“The sunset and Bee Mountain were beautiful to look at. It was dark sky-friendly, so we pulled out our telescope and saw some beautiful stars. Easy drive to Big Bend National Park and the Santa Elena canyon hike which is the most famous in Big Bend.” — Marie B.

3. Dark Sky RV Park & Campground — Utah

Location: Kanab

What makes it great: Dark Sky RV Park is a picture of Utah’s beauty in miniature: Tucked amid the sagebrush off an old highway, it offers views across the Red Cliffs, Vermillion Cliffs and Kaibab Plateau. It’s home to vibrant sunrises and colorful sunsets that give way to a full galaxy of stars overhead at night. If any RV campground has truly earned its name, it’s Dark Sky.

The park offers a combination of basic and luxury sites with full hookups spaced 75 feet apart to maximize privacy. Westward-facing luxury sites, meanwhile, offer rustic bungalows and a private bath house.

With 40 acres to explore on foot or rentable e-bike, Dark Sky is the gateway to tranquility. Meanwhile, nearby Kanab offers great food and drink in addition to access to some of Utah’s more stunning sights, including the Peek-a-boo Slot Canyon, the Coyote Buttes and the Grand Staircase region. And with on-site activities like social hours, markets, star parties and even meditation sessions, Dark Sky is a great place for travelers to mingle before winding down under a blanket of stars.

What The Dyrt’s community of campers has to say:

“What a wonderful surprise to pull into Dark Sky RV Campgrounds. It’s the most unique experience! Full water, power and dump at each site. They have a beautiful property, that is surrounded by Gorgeous Utah mountains. Thursday nights they have a social, offering wine, beer, food and a great overall experience!” — Mindy B.

“This park is amazing. It’s spaced out enough for privacy and the beauty of the night sky will turn your spot into a planetarium. The owners are so friendly and actually gave us a ride to the town to watch the fireworks. You must rent their e-bikes for a fun adventure through the area. The best feature of the park is the super nice and chic bath house. It was a welcomed amenity that gave this place 5 stars!!” — Allison

4. Colter Bay RV Park at Colter Bay Village — Wyoming

Photo by The Dyrt camper Bjorn S.

Location: Grand Teton National Park

What makes it great: Grand Teton National Park is one of the most sweeping mountain landscapes in the United States, and Colter Bay is the epicenter for the postcard-perfect Wyoming adventure. Considered a “summer camp for the whole family,” the gorgeously maintained, ADA-compliant RV site comes with all the hookups and amenities campers need, but with extra flourishes that make it one of the most beautiful places to truly explore this world-class outdoors destination.

Here, visitors can trek into the wildflower-filled backcountry or lounge along the waters of Jackson Lake. As a fully functioning village within the park, Colter Bay is home to a marina, gift shop, laundry facilities, grocery store and banquet-style dining.

It’s also the entry point to the type of Teton adventure travelers spend a lifetime dreaming of. With kayaking, horseback riding, fishing, lake cruises and other guided activities, there’s no shortage of adventure. Although those who spend their time staring at the peaks of the Tetons reflected in the crystal lake waters as wildlife strolls by would be forgiven for sticking close to the campground.

What The Dyrt’s community of campers has to say:

“This is a great full hookup campground inside the national park. Bathhouses were clean and the campground is really quiet. The stars at night are phenomenal and we can’t wait to come back.” — Meghan T.

“Awesome campground right in the park. We stayed 5 nights and really enjoyed it. Full hookups yet still plenty of trees and space to where it felt like a national park site and not like an RV park. Lots of amenities grocery store, laundry with free WiFi, showers, restaurant, gas/diesel nearby. Was a short walk to Jackson Lake which was beautiful. We will definitely be back!” — Scott B.

5. Tom Sawyer’s RV Park — Arkansas

Photo by The Dyrt camper Cris G.

Location: West Memphis

What makes it great: Located on the eastern Arkansas shores of the Mississippi River, Tom Sawyer’s RV Park offers a calming natural contrast to the vibrant music and food scene of bustling Memphis just across the water.

With more than three dozen pull-through sites, Tom Sawyer’s riverfront views are perfect for kicking back and watching the steady parade of tugboats and other river traffic float by with the Mississippi floodplain in the backdrop.

Perhaps most importantly, Tom Sawyer functions as a relaxing base camp that allows visitors to experience one of Tennessee’s most bustling cities before retreating to a more peaceful oasis. Visitors can spend the day exploring Memphis — indulging in world-famous BBQ and blues, walking the halls of Graceland — then return to the peace and quiet of a riverside retreat that feels light years away from the city life.

What The Dyrt’s community of campers has to say:

“Great spot right on the Mississippi River, barges traveling up and down day and night. Beautiful sunrise and sunsets, close to Memphis Tennessee also.” — Trevor R.

“Beautiful, quiet, view up close of Mississippi River. Large green grass area to walk along river, benches to sit. The moon was beautiful across the water. They were helpful by phone, and we arrived after hours and our envelope was waiting for us.” — Victoria

Price: $28-$59; Number of sites: 42; Learn more about Tom Sawyer’s RV Park

6. Lake Pleasant RV Park — Washington

Photo by The Dyrt camper Light Backpack S.

Location: Bothell

What makes it great: Situated between Seattle and the lush woodlands of the Mt. Snoqualmie National Forest, Lake Pleasant is at the intersection of big-city charm and the wilds of the Pacific Northwest. At this pet-friendly park, visitors spend their time fishing at the catch-and-release pond or exploring the woodland trails by foot or bike surrounding the 184 full-hookup RV sites.

The park also serves as a gateway to the Pacific Northwest’s most vibrant city. Only a 20-minute drive, Lake Pleasant is close enough to Seattle’s world-renowned food, music, fish market and islands but far enough off course that it feels a world away from the bustle. And with the roaring waterfalls, dense forests and rushing rivers of the PNW wilderness within reach, it’s the perfect resting place following an outdoor adventure or metropolitan expedition alike.

What The Dyrt’s community of campers has to say:

“This was a very pleasant and nice place to stay, quiet and set up around a pond. The facilities were very clean, laundry was great and very affordable! Lots of geese, ducks and bunnies are around the property. Great privacy hedges between spots. The areas were paved and level. A great place to walk around and enjoy during your stay.” — Terri

“What a great place to stay when visiting Seattle, honestly the best. Each site has a few trees to give privacy and a fantastic walking trail for dogs. It’s very clean and welcoming.” — Melanie A.

7. Landry Vineyards Grape Escape RV Sites — Louisiana

Photo by The Dyrt camper Al L.

Location: West Monroe

What makes it great: A true hidden gem in Louisiana’s often overlooked wine country, Landry Vineyards’ eight RV sites are situated at the edge of its namesake vineyard. That puts campers in the heart of the rolling hills and lakes of wine country — with spoils that come with it onsite.

The sites, along with two small camping cabins, are a casual stroll away from Landry Vineyards’ tasting rooms, where a collection of 20 different wines are available to taste.

Additionally, Landry regularly hosts a wide variety of musical acts ranging from jazz to country, grape-stomping and more — although it’s also a quiet, peaceful place to enjoy nature in a pastoral setting. It’s a spectacular base for exploring the surrounding waterways and vineyards, a place where the best of Louisiana’s viticulture and celebratory spirit await.

Landry Vineyards Grape Escape RV Sites was No. 9 on The Dyrt’s 2024 Best Places to Camp in the Southeast Region list.

What The Dyrt’s community of campers has to say:

“We absolutely loved the GrapeEscape at Landry Vineyards. The spots are level and nice, the whole property is absolutely gorgeous. We were lucky enough the be in a spot that is right across the road from the Winery, and they had live music the day we came in. We visited the winery for a tasting, bought some wine and things to make a meat / cheese tray and took it back to our RV to enjoy the music and do a little dancing!” — Jewelana T.

“This place was beautiful, quiet, and pleasant. We went for the Stomping of the Grapes and enjoyed the delicious wines. We were there on Friday night and Saturday and also got to enjoy the live music… lots of people there that day. Had a wonderful time on this cousin’s weekend getaway trip!!” — Michele P.

8. The Views RV Park & Campground — Colorado

Photo by The Dyrt camper Tanner S.

Location: Dolores

What makes it great: For road-trippers looking to see as many states as possible in a short time, The Views is a must: It’s a short drive from the iconic Four Corners overlooking New Mexico, Utah, Arizona and Colorado. But beyond that must-see photo-op, this hookup-equipped, rustically chic RV and glamping site truly plays the hits when it comes to Colorado’s scenic wonders.

Looking for some water sports? Rent a paddleboard and head to the nearby McPhee Reservoir or the Dolores River. Hit the town of Dolores to experience the culinary bounty at brewpubs and vineyards after a long day of hiking or mountain biking, or explore the ancient pueblos of Mesa Verde National Park before settling in for a quiet, peaceful night at The Views.

For those looking for a day trip, the gorgeous small towns of Telluride and Durango are a short drive away, while the Million Dollar Highway is a must-visit for road trippers. But with 42 explorable acres onsite, it’s equally rewarding to relax at The Views and watch the golden sunset amid the surrounding mountains.

What The Dyrt’s community of campers has to say:

“A very personal campground, where the owners clearly have put their personal touch on making this a great stay for their guests. You even get escorted to your site! All facilities are new and clean, a great place to recharge. You can rent SUP boards to bring to the reservoir.” — Maria M.

“Great views, wide spaces, super clean park, ultra clean restrooms and showers. Across the highway from a large lake. Close to many Native American Ruins all part of Canyon of The Ancients. We are going back for a week’s stay late July, early August. Put this park on your bucket list.” — Robert K.

9. Lake George RV Park — New York

Location: Lake George

What makes it great: With 400 pull-through and back-in campsites featuring water, sewer and cable hookups — plus a selection of campsites, lodges and cabins — Lake George RV Park takes its designation as a resort very, very seriously.

The park is home to indoor and outdoor pools and waterslides along with recreation areas featuring shuffleboard, basketball and tennis courts. A movie theater screens blockbusters, while the French Mountain Playhouse presents free shows for the whole family. And with a sprawling network of hiking and biking trails, there’s no shortage of places to explore — there’s even a two-acre dog park for furry travelers.

Between the dining, entertainment, water park and trails — all of which are accessible by free trolley — Lake George RV Park offers a robust experience unto itself. And with lake excursions, great dining and the Lake George Expedition Park’s roller coasters nearby in town, it’s the perfect place for the whole family to let loose under the blue skies of the Adirondacks.

What The Dyrt’s community of campers has to say:

“This park is amazing! So much to do right in the park with clean sites, friendly staff, awesome amenities and even a trolly to get around this huge park or get downtown to Lake George. Living 10 minutes away, we were looking for an affordable vacation and we found it! We are already planning our next trip.” — Carrie M.

“This is the best RV resort I have visited. I can’t do justice to the dog park; it has to be the best dog park in USA. Everything you want in an RV park. A must stay.” — Matt T.

10. Ruby’s Inn RV Park and Campground — Utah

Photo by The Dyrt camper Scott B.

Location: Bryce Canyon City

What makes it great: The closest RV park to the gates of Bryce Canyon National Park, the sprawling Ruby’s Inn is located a mere half mile from the park’s entrance, and with 250 RV sites in addition to tipis, cabins and tent sites, it’s safe to say that this is the liveliest place to set up camp for a bucket-list adventure.

For those looking to access Bryce without the RV in tow, a shuttle service transports guests between Ruby’s and some of the national park’s most popular destinations. And with a camp store onsite, Ruby’s is an ideal place to stock up before exploring the rugged wilderness.

Still, while Bryce is the main attraction, the campground is a destination unto itself, with a sparkling pool for relaxation in addition to live country music, horse and ATV rides, a rodeo and other entertainment. At Ruby’s, the splendor of Bryce is at your doorstep.

What The Dyrt’s community of campers has to say:

“After a long afternoon in Bryce Canyon NP, this was a perfect stop for us and worth the payment for the campsite. Showers were overall amazing, and the bathrooms were even warm at night when it got chilly. Definitely would stay here again when visiting Bryce.” — Sam W.

“Great place, friendly people! This campground has everything: general store, pool, and so much more. It’s like a little village with everything within walking distance. The bus towards Bryce NP stops at Ruby’s Inn, great!” — Bas V.
