    20 RV Parks Across America That Are One Step Above The Rest, Offering Beachfront Access, Mountain Views, And More

    Let's get going.

    If you recently joined the RV and camper van craze, welcome. But before you hit the road, you might want to consider adding a few of the nation's best RV parks to your itinerary.

    The beauty of hitting the road in an RV is that you can park almost anywhere, but as any seasoned traveler knows, amenities like clean bathrooms and hookups go a long way. 

    The experts at Yelp ran the numbers, and they determined the best parks in the US, taking into account factors like volume of reviews and ratings. 

    Yelp Trend Expert Tara Lewis says that for most RVers, "Easy access to hiking trails and nearby attractions like restaurants and farmer's markets, along with amenities like fire pits, picnic tables, grills, and clean bathrooms, play a large factor in deciding where to park." 

    1. Bridgeport, California: Paradise Shores Camp

    This full-service RV park and campground sits right on Bridgeport Reservoir, so you can park your rig and spend the days fishing and boating on the water. If you have the space, pack your mountain bike and hit the trails, or make the 45-minute drive to Yosemite National Park.

    2. Mountain Home, Idaho: Mountain Home RV Park

    Just off the Oregon coast near Bullards Beach State Park is this motel and RV park. While the park promises a clean and quiet stay for RVers, keep in mind that it only has eight full hookup spaces, so you'll need to book in advance.

    14. Cedar City, Utah: BNBSWISS
