Must-See Mountainous RV Parks of the U.S.

A trip into the mountains is an unforgettable one! When you start getting close enough that you can see the mountains looming in the distance, it’s hard to not let the excitement take over. You feel like you’re pulling up to a larger-than-life attraction that goes on and on for as far as the eye can see. It’s because of the awe-inspiring mountain ranges across our country that I support protecting the national parks from action that would harm them. These gorgeous peaks need to be around for our kids and grandkids to enjoy for generations to come! For now though, hitch up your RV and head to one of these top mountainous RV parks of the U.S. and enjoy a getaway that will take your breath away.

Mountain Lake Camping Resort, Lancaster, New Hampshire

Head into the White Mountains in northeast New Hampshire for a lakeside vacation in the mountains! The Mountain Lake Camping Resort in Lancaster is a great place to set up camp and spend a week bonding with your family. The 30-acre lake is perfect for fishing, swimming, canoeing, and kayaking, and there is a hiking trail in the White Mountains nearby. This RV park also has a heated pool, playground, and planned activities. Choose from a lakefront or wooded site; they all have full hookups. The reviews speak for themselves—this is a clean, friendly, top-notch RV park!

Anchor Down RV Resort, Dandridge, Tennessee

Gaze out at the Great Smoky Mountains from your beautiful campsite in Anchor Down RV Resort in eastern Tennessee. This lovely campground is located right on Douglas Lake in Dandridge, which was voted best small town on the water in 2013. As if having the Great Smokies as your view from your campfire isn’t enough to make you want to book a stay, the resort is over the top with awesome amenities, including a swimming pool, dog park, pickleball & basketball courts, a sandy beach, golf cart rentals, and so much more. While there are over 170 campsites, you’ll want to book early if you desire a lakeside one.

Tiger Run Resort, Breckenridge, Colorado

If you’re looking for a rugged RVing experience in the Centennial State, you can skip this RV resort. But if you desire exceptional accommodations in a pristine setting, then you’ll want to check out the Tiger Run Resort. Located in Breckenridge, it’s the perfect spot to stay for amazing winter skiing in Breckenridge, Copper Mountain, or Keystone. During the warmer months, you can hop on your bikes and ride (or hike) the 60 miles of trails between Breckenridge and Vail. Upon your return to the campground you can relax in the pool or hot tub, hang out in the clubhouse, work out in the fitness center, or just kick back around your campfire and gaze up at the marvelous mountain views that surround you. If your RV is too small or too old (according to the county ordinances), unfortunately there won’t be a spot for you here. But if you make the cut you’ll be in for an unforgettable stay!

Mama Gertie’s Hideaway Campground, Swannanoa, North Carolina

If touring the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC, is on your bucket list, then consider staying at Mama Gertie’s Hideaway Campground! This year-round campground has excellent ratings from past visitors thanks to its fantastic Blue Ridge Mountain views, well-kept grounds, friendly staff, and clean amenities. The area offers tons of recreation including biking, hiking, skiing, fishing, golfing, and more. There are beautiful waterfalls and cold mountain streams for water lovers. It’s even pet-friendly, so you don’t have to say goodbye to Muggins through a stream of tears when you leave—she can come too!

Jackson Hole Campground Fireside Resort, Wyoming

Nestled in Jackson Hole right near the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone, this gorgeous RV park offers year-round camping to accommodate campers who love to go horseback riding, fly fishing, whitewater rafting, downhill skiing, snowmobiling, or hiking. The town of Jackson Hole is trendy and fun with lots of upscale shops, amazing restaurants, and the occasional celebrity visit. We walked right into Bill Clinton (and his secret service detail) when we were there! This RV park is the only one in Jackson Hole that offers winter camping, so book early for your ski vacation!

Savage River Campground, Denali National Park, Alaska

This 33-site campground offers stunning views of Mt. McKinley (Denali) on a clear day! While it doesn’t offer hookups (none of the campgrounds in the park do), it does have flush toilets and fire rings. Since Savage River Campground lies right in the heart of Denali, you’re living among the bears, caribou, and moose that call this 6 million acre national park home. So beware of your surroundings, but enjoy the abundant wildlife that makes Denali so spectacular. It’s a good thing there are approximately 20 hours of sunlight during the summer months so you can see and do everything there is to do here, such as go on glacier tours, go hiking, biking, canoeing, rafting, even sight-seeing Mt. McKinley.
