The Gulf Coast of Alabama lays claim to several nice RV parks, but my top slot has to go to the Buena Vista RV Resort.  Why?  Well, not only does this particular resort sit just across the street from the beach, it rests alongside the natural beauty of Gulf State Park.  Nestled between coastal forest on one side and the beach on the other, Buena Vista is also just a few minutes in each direction from the bustling towns of Gulf Shores and Orange Beach.  Every site is landscaped for added privacy and standard sites, with full hookups, start at $95 a night.  The extraordinary deluxe sites offer full outdoor kitchens, outdoor seating areas as well as a private pool or hot tub with prices as low as $145 a night.  The resort’s generous amenities include a spacious clubhouse, complete with an indoor pool, hot tub and fitness center as well as an outdoor lazy river and resort pool.  Although their prices are higher than average, their customer service, ideal location and endless amenities guarantee an experience well worth the price tag.

The options of RV parks throughout Alaska are dizzying, but the Denali Grizzly Bear Resort inevitably comes out on top.  Located at the south entrance to Denali National Park, the Grizzly Bear boasts the honor of the oldest family-owned tourism property in Denali, with four generations of Reislands at the helm.  That isn’t to say they haven’t moved with the times; quite the opposite.  My favorite feature of their establishment is the food truck court, which sports a charming pavilion and inventive vendors like Denali Thai or Mariachi Moose.  Onsite is a general store, complete with a full liquour store, showers, a laundromat, cooking shelters, campfire circles and a propane filling station.  Their local tour desk is primed and ready to assist you with river rafting, ATVs, hiking trail maps, horseback rides, helicopter or safari tours and will shine as your go-to for exploring the majesty of Denali National Park.  The park itself comprises 6-million acres and lays claim to America’s tallest peak at 30,310 feet.  For the ultimate stay in Denali, Grizzly Bear Resort sites include electric, water, television, sewer and wifi access for around $48.

California has loads of great RV Resorts, some of which are in the least desirable parts of California, but the spot that delivers great hospitality with an exceptional locale, is Flying Flags RV Resort in Buellton.  If you have never been to Buellton, it’s a charming little town that’s in the epicenter of Santa Ynez Valley wine country.  Napa may be the most famous American Appellation for wine, but this little pocket of California stole this sommelier’s heart long ago!  Besides the endless wine and farm-to-table food on offer in the area, Flying Flags delivers a lovely swimming pool and hot tub, playground, bocce ball, sports courts, an off-leash dog park, café, general store, propane refill, fitness center, free wifi as well as an outdoor kitchen and pavilion.  Their well-appointed full hookup RV sites are fairly reasonable for the Golden State, but price-to-quality is unmatched – a classic pull through runs $65 a night (30/50amp, sewer, water, electric and cable) while an ultra premium site, complete with 20/30/50amp, an oversized patio with an outdoor kitchen, seating area and fireplace along with cable, sewer water and electric, rings in at $160 a night.

Although Louisiana has several lovely RV parks, I can’t visit the Bayou State without making a trip to New Orleans. Simply put, it’s one of my favorite cities in the country – dining at Galatoire’s and Commander’s Palace, jazz on Frenchman Street; the list goes on and the culture and architecture everywhere you turn.  New Orleans delivers the charm of Europe with American moxie and it’s sheer magic.  Nevertheless, hotel rooms in the desirable parts of the city can be staggering.  The solution: the French Quarter RV Resort.  Situated a street over from Louis Armstrong Park and within walking distance to all the delights of the French Quarter, this RV Park is among the best city-centric RV parks in the states.  Their paved sites offer hookups for electricity, cable, water and sewer, and start at $105 a night.  The park offers a clubhouse, lovely pool, hot tub, a gazebo with bar facilities, a fitness center, laundry rooms, a business center and four well-kept bathhouses.  In short, it’s the best deal in the city!

North Carolina:

North Carolina has so much to offer, but my favorite getaway destination is, without a doubt, Asheville.  Akin to the charms of Austin before it got too cool for school, Asheville has its own inimitable charm that’s offset against the backdrop of the gorgeous Blue Ridge Mountains.  Campfire Lodgings offers the best of both worlds; it’s perched in the mountaintops with all the natural enchantment that goes along with it, but it’s just a quick jaunt into town for incredible food, world-class breweries and fantastic live music.  All sites offer full hookups along with picnic tables and fire rings; rates start as low as $50 a night.  Within the park is a fishing pond, hiking trails and wifi at the top of the campsite.

Oregon is such an enchanting state with plenty of options for RV campers, but I simply love the location of the Phoenix RV Park outside Salem.  A charming town in its own right, Salem is also a quick 5-mile drive from Willamette Valley, which I personally believe is the greatest wine region in the United States – by a long shot.
