7. Polson Motorcoach & RV Resort
Located near Glacier National Park, this Class A park has a prestigious 10/10*/10 rating from RV-owner membership club Good Sam. The park's amenities include water, sewer, cable, and a dog run, but however nice the park is, the real attraction is the surrounding countryside. Views of Flathead Lake and the Mission Mountains give you the best of Montana's wide-open country, and there's plenty of golf, fishing, and clay shooting in the area. In the fall and spring, a small space starts around $65 after tax.

6. Pecan Park Campground
San Marcos, Texas
Pecan Park is located in San Marcos, popular for its inner tubing on the San Marcos River. If you want something a little more urban, you can always make the short jaunt to Austin. The campground itself has amenities like propane, movie rentals, and an indoor pool, but you're probably going to be too busy relaxing by the river to care. Basic spots start at $35 a night.

5. The Campsites at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort
Did you know that there was a Disney RV park? Because there is a Disney RV park. Reservations on TripAdvisor are around $334 right now, which you may recognize as being about ten times the price of Pecan Park. Still, you're paying to be on the Walt Disney World Resort as much as you are anything else.

4. Jellystone Park at Kozy Rest
That's right: Jellystone.

2. Yosemite Pines
Yosemite National Park is one of America's grandest landscapes. From the ancient sequoias to the grand waterfalls, it's no wonder that Ansel Adams drew so much inspiration from the place. Still, the RV accommodations, aren't the most cutting-edge, so if you want something a little nicer, try Yosemite Pines. For $24 to $51 per night, you can get hookups, a swimming pool, and more, and you're only a half-hour away from the park.
