Fort De Soto is simply one of the prettiest campgrounds in America. The palm trees and waterfront sites are RV heaven, and the many sites offer water access for kayaking. You can bike on extensive paths through the whole park and relax on the white sand beaches. Tampa is only about 45 minutes away.

#5: Branches of Niagara in New York State

Niagara Falls is on most folks’ RV destination bucket list, and Branches of Niagara is the perfect place to stay during your visit. We love the way it feels like a summer camp for the entire family with planned activities, visiting recreation programs, and an onsite zipline(!).

#4: My Old Kentucky Home State Park in Kentucky

by Casita Dean

Episode #63 Show Notes

My Old Kentucky Home State Park is an example of why people rave about the Kentucky State Park system. Quaint and clean, the campground offers water and electric hookups along with a few precious full hook up sites. The campground also offers you close proximity to the other park attractions like a mansion tour and outdoor theatre. Added bonus? The nearby city of Bardstown, which has been named one of the most beautiful small towns in America.

#3: Colter Bay RV Park in Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming

Some people skip visiting Grand Teton National Park when they head out on those epic western road trips. In this episode, Kerri Cox makes a case for this being a must-see destination.

#2: Fort Wilderness Walt Disney World in Florida

by Stephanie and Jeremy Puglisi

Episode #67 Show Notes
Episode #67 iTunes Link

Often considered the best campground in America, we were actually surprised this wasn’t THE most popular episode from the Campground of the Week podcast. We certainly had an amazing stay at Fort Wilderness, and will make sure we get to spend even more time at the campground when we visit Disney next time.

#1: Myrtle Beach KOA in South Carolina

by Stephanie and Jeremy Puglisi

Episode #55 Show Notes
Episode #55 iTunes Link

We were a bit surprised to find that this campground was our most popular episode out of the 99 we have produced so far! It does happen to be one of our favorite family getaway spots of all time, though, so we are happy to have it at the top. We love the way the Myrtle Beach KOA puts us right in the middle of the action, but feels like a million miles away. We always look forward to returning.

Thanks for joining us for the first 100 episodes of Campground of the Week! Stay tuned for the next 100…

See you at the campground,

Stephanie + Jeremy
