Did you know there are over 16,000 different campgrounds around the United State? With that many to choose from, it can be difficult to pick exactly where to take the family in the new RV this year. For Camping/RV Week at Carsforsale.com, we thought we’d give you a few suggestions. Below you will find our Top 5 Hidden Gems for RV Camping.

5. Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore

Twelvemile Beach Campground, Michigan

You can hike over 100 miles of trails alongside 40 miles of shoreline. Situated in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, this beautiful National Park is open year-round and offers amazing views no matter what season. If hiking isn’t your thing, you can spend your time in the water on a kayak or canoe. If you’d rather be in the water, try swimming o explore the caves alongside the sandstone cliffs.

RVglass4. Yosemite National Park

Sierra Meadows Country Club, California

Yosemite National Park does not allow RV camping throughout the park and the campsites are very primitive. Therefore you must look off-site to park your camper for the night as you explore the wonders of Central California with almost 750,000 acres of practically untouched land. Sierra Meadows Country Club is just the place to bring that luxurious 2014 Itasca Ellipse 42QD you just bought for the family. Each night you’ll enjoy a free round of golf for staying. If you are looking for a fancy RV park, look no further.

florida3. Florida Keys

Boyd’s Key West Campground, Florida

So you’ve taken your family to the lake up north since the kids were little. Yes, it’s a very nice spot and all, but how about you swap out that lakeside campground for a seaside slab and rather than fishing off the 200foot pier, take you kids out for some deep sea mahi-mahi fishing. Don’t have a boat? Carsforsale.com sells those here too. When you park your trailer at Boyd’s you can take part in any one of their social activities such as potlucks, themed cruises or poolside parties. You’ve spent all your other vacations enjoys the countryside. Try enjoying the seaside for your next family vacation.

AZ2.  The Old Wild West
