Let’s face it: RVs get a bad wrap. When most people hear RV park, the first thing they picture is a crowded compound filled with snowbirds, trash, and smelly water tanks. In reality, RV camping opens us up to some of the most beautiful sites that mother nature has to offer. The best RV camp spots have close ups view of dazzling blue waters, snow drenched mountains and hidden cascades. The convenience of a home on wheels is just an added bonus. Looking to spark your wanderlust? Check out these gorgeous RV camp views straight out of a travel guide.
Crater Lake National Park, Oregon
From Yosemite to the Smoky Mountains, there’s no shortage of beautiful National Parks worthy of their own entry on this list. Perhaps America’s best kept secret, however, is Crater Lake. This National Park lies in the Cascade Mountains of southern Oregon. It’s home to the collapsed volcano Mount Mazama as well as Crater Lake, the deepest lake in the entire U.S. RV campers can stay at the Mazama campground, which is only a short drive away from the shimmering blue waters. During the day, you can explore the volcanic formations and lake, which is said to be the most pristine in the entire world.
Denali National Park, Alaska
A trip to Alaska may not sound like a walk in the park. Yes, it’s home to frigid temperatures and burly grizzly bears. But it also has some of the best RV views in all of the world. Case in point: Denali National Park. At the Grizzly Bear Resort, RVers are placed smack dab in the middle of the six million acre park. Visitors get breathtaking views of the endless forest, roaming wildlife, and, of course, Denali, the tallest peak in North America.

Forget about lobsters. Maine may be known for its delicious seafood, but the real treat is Acadia National Park. Renowned for its scenic coastline and legendary sunsets, Acadia National Park is regarded as the crown jewel of the Atlantic Coastline. At over 47,000-acres, this northern playground has both glacial peaks and rocky beaches. Bar Harbor Oceanside KOA is the only campground on the west side of the island, but it has plenty of ocean camping spots right along the shoreline.
Arches National Park, Utah
What can you expect to see at Arches National Park? Start with the 2,000 natural sandstone arches. These geographically unique arches are found all throughout this epic National Park. Imagine waking up in a sea of red-hued arches, with nothing but the endless desert as far as the eye can see. That’s what you’ll experience at the Devil’s Garden Campground. This campground doesn’t have any hookups, but it’s worth roughing it for the majestic desert views alone.

Jackson Hole has long been the go to vacation spot in Wyoming. Just a short drive away, however, lies the Grand Teton National Park. Set at the base of the sprawling Teton mountain range, this outdoor wonderland is a destination for nature lovers, hikers, and adventurers alike. At the Colter Bay RV Park, you’ll encounter thick pine forests, roaming elk and the shimmering Jackson lake. Of course, you can’t miss the towering Grand Teton peak, which stands at an impressive 13,775 feet.
Key West, Florida
The Florida Keys have long cemented their spot in American folklore. I mean, have you heard “Kokomo” by the Beach Boys? It’s well worth it to take an RV trip down the 120-mile stretch of tropical islands to reach Key West. The southernmost tip of the U.S. has plenty to offer, from fluorescent coral reefs to saltwater fishing. It’s also home to Boyd’s Key West Campground, which offers awe-inspiring views of the turquoise-blue water. Just don’t forget the piña colada mix.
