best large rv parks

It’s particularly difficult to be named one of the best large RV parks in the country. Competition gets stiffer when you’re competing with the big boys. Huge RV parks tend to have more amenities and larger budgets than their smaller companions. Many of them also include conveniences money can’t by, such as flowing views or fantastic views.  Campgrounds on this list feature all the above, making them the crème de la crème of our nation’s camping experiences.

A family-oriented park in the scenic Lakes Region of New Hampshire, Whit’s End Campground features lots of wooded, riverfront RV and tent sites. This makes it the perfect campground for tubing, kayaking, canoeing, and fishing. You can even rent tubes right at the park, as well as enjoying its recreation hall, movie theater, and heated pool.

This huge campground features over 400 sites, including 136-foot pull-throughs and plenty of spacious cabins. The indoor heated pool and hot tub set this KOA apart from the rest, making it not only one of the best KOAs but one of the best large RV parks, period. Cherokee / Great Smokies KOA is known for its extremely helpful staff that will help you get checked in as late as 10 p.m. at night. They’ll even lead you to your site and help you hook-up. It offers great fishing at three trout ponds and Raven Fork River, which meanders through the campground. You can also visit nearby attractions like Harrah’s Cherokee Casino, The Blue Ridge Mountains, or The Museum of Cherokee Indians.

Garrison’s River Resort


Another great spot for tubing, kayaking, and canoeing, Garrison’s River Resort earns the right to be called a resort. Its sprawling grounds feature every type a lodging a camper could ask for, as well as every amenity. All ranch houses, cabins, bunkhouses, bungalows, cottages, RV sites, and tent sites come with easy access to the resort’s swimming pool, country kitchen dining lodge, and raft rentals. If that wasn’t enough, campers here love its weekly activities, especially karaoke on Friday and Saturday nights.

All 20 acres of this park located on the edge of the Manti-La Sal National Forest are waiting to be explored. All RV sites come with lush green lawns, fire pits, and picnic tables. Enjoy a volleyball match, play a game of horseshoes, swim in the pool, or stock up for the night at the convenience store. If you stay long enough to exhaust all the great options the park has to offer, head to Manti-La Sal National Forest and scout its sandstone canyons, meadows, mountaintops, and streams.

Frenchman’s Wilderness Campground


Placed near Baton Rouge on the Atchafalaya Basin east of Henderson, Louisiana, Frenchman’s Wilderness Campground affords mild weather year-round. Being in the bayou means there are several Swamp Tours nearby. There’s no need to leave the park to entertain yourself though. Frenchman’s Wilderness Campground features a mini-golf course, two playgrounds, a swimming pool, an arcade, a pavilion, and a camp store.

Take It Easy Campground


Take It Easy Campground is a family owned and operated park that will make anyone feel at home. It’s near endless list of amenities includes a basketball court, a swimming pool, a soccer field, a fully stocked fishing lake and pond, a large playground, a chapel, and more! You can head to nearby Cecil’s Country Store for anything you need to purchase.

Sitting at the base of the Dixon Miller Recreation Area, Peaceful Woodlands Family Campground is one of the best large RV parks for gorgeous views of the Pocono Plateau and the Pocono Mountains. It has onsite family-friendly activities like intimate music shows, mini-golf, arts and crafts, ceramics, and bingo nights. You can rent books and movies from its library play games on its spacious, grassy fields. Their restrooms are always kept immaculate and their cabins are virtually brand new.

Named after the Native American word for welcome, Kalyumet Campground is a heavily wooded park in Lucinda, Pennslyvania. Its huge heated pool, mini-golf course, and trackless train rides can keep you and your kids preoccupied for days. If you get the chance, however, we recommend venturing off the grounds to Cook Forest State Park. It includes 16 marked hiking trails, 250-year-old trees standing over 200 feet tall, and several overlooks with views of Clarion River Valley.

At the heart of New Hampshire’s lakes region, 90 minutes north of Boston, rests Turtle Kraal RV Park. This makes it an ideal spot for visiting scenic attractions like Alton Bay and Lake Winnipesaukee. Nearly all 147 of its RV sites are 40 by 60 feet and include sewer, water, and electric with 100-amp service. It features a spring-fed, three-acre pond with a beach area perfect for volleyball and horseshoes. A magnificent, 30 by 50 feet gunite pool just opened!

Roughly six miles south of Yuma, Arizona, Southern Mesa RV Park is the perfect distance from the city. It’s far enough for splendid stargazing but close enough to easily enjoy all the Yuma has to offer. Within the park itself, you can find amenities like a newly remodeled clubhouse and restrooms, a swimming pool, a community kitchen, and horseshoe pits. Like we mentioned, you can head to Yuma to visit attractions such as Quartermaster Depot State Historic Park and Yuma Territorial Prison State Historic Park (featured in the film 3:10 to Yuma).
