It couldn’t be a better time to start planning for your next adventure vacation and looking for the best RV parks for hunting and fishing. After all, hunting for most game starts late summertime and you want to be sure that you’ve secured your RV and campsite reservation well in advance. So where should you go? Since we’ve been around, we thought we’d suggest a few locations. Check out our list of campgrounds in the U.S. with the best fishing, the most game, and top-notch campsite amenities.
Paint River Hills Campground and Cabins
Crystal Falls, Michigan
Located adjacent to the Paint River in Crystal Falls, MI, Paint River Hills Campground and Cabins is a favorite for fishing, hunting, and camping enthusiasts in the Midwest. Paint River has rock bass, perch, walleye, pike, trout, and even crayfish, which you can find lurking around the rocks further down river. It’s typically easy to catch the nocturnal crustaceans, but watch out for their pincers! And for hunters, Crystal Falls is a great place for small game like grouse and woodcock. Each year, archers come to the Iron County to try their hand at snagging a trophy buck. In fact, schools customarily close for the first day of whitetail hunting season and the city is wall-to-wall hunter orange.
Josephine’s Idaho RV Park
North Fork, Idaho
The view from anywhere in the vicinity of the Rocky Mountains is one of the most visually striking sights you will ever see. That’s why if you’re heading toward Idaho, specifically just 20 miles west of the Montana border, you must plan to visit Josephine’s Idaho RV Park. Fishing enthusiasts will love their stay at this campsite since it’s only a five-mile drive to the steelhead-filled Salmon River. The area is also home to big game like bear, elk, mountain lion, and both whitetail and mule deer. Josephine’s is one of the most hunter-friendly RV campgrounds out there. They even have a designated area to weigh your game.
Kamp Klamath RV Park and Campground
Tucked away at the farthest edges of Northern California in Klamath National Forest, Kamp Klamath RV Park and Campground is as heavily forested as you can get in this state. What keeps bringing more fisherman here year after year? The salmon, redtail surfperch, and steelhead trout. The campground boasts that their own Klamath River holds the world record for the largest redtail surfperch ever caught. Care to take a shot at breaking that record?
The Vineyards Campground & Cabins
Sitting on the southeastern shores of Grapevine Lake, not far from Dallas, the Vineyards Campground is a great spot for all types of outdoor adventurers. The lake is packed with alligator gar, channel catfish, largemouth bass, spotted bass, white bass, and white crappie. Hunters travel here to enjoy the waterfowl, deer, and feral hog.
