All you need for a good RV experience is a good rig, good company, and a good view. While we can’t help you with the first two, we sure can help to find you a good view. There are many parks that have great views nearby but we wanted something where you can walk out of your RV to immediately greet the scenery.
Here's a list of nine of RV parks with a view so you can find a place to settle down and witness the beauty and scenery that Mother Nature provides. Let’s start out west and head east.
Patrick’s Point State Park: Trinidad, CA
Patrick’s Point State Park is truly a gem on the Pacific Coast Highway. Look behind you to see the dense old world growth of spruce, hemlock, fir, and pine or look ahead to the bluffs, jetties and marine life of the North Pacific coastline. Lucky for you the sun sets in the west! Perfect for those who like sprawling ocean views. Fair warning, Patrick’s Point is often blanketed with fog in the morning and at night but it reveals quite a view when it lifts.
Tuolumne Meadows Campground: Yosemite National Park, CA
Tuolumne Meadows Campground provides a bit of serenity and isolation compared to many of the crowded Yosemite campgrounds. You are in the heart of Yosemite and situated next to rolling meadows and the crystal clear babbling streams of Lyell Fork. The park also offers great views of the Sierra Nevada Range of Yosemite.
The Devil’s Garden Campground: Arches National Park, UT
There are no hookups available inside of Arches National Park but there sure are some spectacular views. Wake up every morning to the high desert beauty in Arches’ buttes, canyons and of course, naturally formed arches at the Devil's Garden Campground. If dry camping in Arches seems a bit extreme you can try camping in nearby Arch View RV Resort with views of Arches and full amenities.
Signal Mountain: Grand Teton National Park, WY
Signal Mountain’s campgrounds on Jackson Lake has just about everything you could ask for in a great view. You can greet the morning with clear mountain skies, long stretches of golden grasses and wildflowers with tremendous views of the Tetons. The Signal Mountain gallery has a preview of some of these views you can witness for yourself every day.
Manor RV Park: Estes Park, CO
Manor RV Park was our top ranked RV park in Colorado and the views it comes with were one of the big reasons for its high ranking. Wake up every morning with a spectacular view of the Rocky Mountains that peak over your doorstep. The park is also surrounded by streams, tall cottonwoods, and local wildlife, making this a site where you don’t really need to go anywhere to absorb the lovely scenery.
Cedar Pass Campground: Badlands National Park, SD
Cedar Pass Campground offers some great views of the spires, sheer walls and lovely grasslands of Badlands National Park in southwestern South Dakota. You’ll quickly find out why this portion of the United States is known as “Big Sky Country” when you see the view. Cedar Pass also offers a good refueling and restocking point for those heading to Mt. Rushmore.
Liberty Harbor RV Park: Jersey City, NJ
Liberty Harbor RV Park is billed as the closest park to New York City and we can’t refute that claim. The park boasts views of the boats coming in and out of Liberty Harbor, Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty, as well as a view of the Manhattan skyline. You can experience the sights and sounds of New York City all while tucked in a park with full amenities.
Long Pine Key Campground: Everglades National Park, FL
The valleys and mountains of the western US certainly have a strong hold on many great views but some people may want something closer to sea level, even below it. Everglades National Park is known for its extensive wetlands, tall pines, and spectacular sunsets. Stay at the Long Pine Key Campground to get a tremendous view of the tall pines the site is named for and witness a great sunset.
Dune’s Edge Campground: Provincetown, MA
Dune’s Edge Campground is the perfect spot to bring out your inner sea captain. The park, situated on the very tip of Massachusetts offers excellent views of Cape Cod including pines, dunes and the waters of the Cape itself. Relax on the shore and watch vessels trailing along the waters. Boat rentals are available if you’d like to view the shore from the cape.
