RVs can take you almost anywhere you want to go, but once you get there, will you want to stay? While camping next to a highway might be fine for an overnight stop, a week of late-night boondocking at the closest Wal-Mart will leave you full of fumes and sleep-deprived. Remote campgrounds that offer scenery, not semis, are no guarantee either. Poorly maintained amenities, unruly campers and mountains of litter, will make a bear's den look like an appealing alternative.

Picking the perfect RV site will depend on the kind of outdoor adventure you're looking for and who you're traveling with. When looking for an RV campground, consider more than the scenery. Make sure it meets your needs in the following areas:

Laundry facilities
Shaded spots
Pet policy
Hook ups
WiFi Internet access
Kinds of activities provided or near by

To be a truly great escape, the campsite must go out of their way to keep campers happy. For scenery and service, the following campgrounds make our top ten list:

Riverside RV Resort & Campground in Whistler, British Columbia provides WiFi and free shuttles to nearby ski hills. Knowing their clientele likes to stay connected and hit the hills, golf course or après ski on time, they do everything they can to make it easy.
Four Paws in Rutherfordton, North Carolina is a dog-lover's dream. As the name suggests, this ultra pet-friendly campground is crazy for canines. They like people, too and provide plenty of social events to round off a day spent hiking or swimming.
Meteor Crater RV Camp's desert location can't offer waterfront lots, but their clean, spacious, easy-to-navigate sites have full hook-ups and WiFi. The lack of lush scenery won't matter since you'll be too busy exploring the nearby Grand Canyon, the Petrified Forest , mountain lakes and Sedona's Red Rock Country to notice.
Baddeck Cabot Trail Park, Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, is just off the world famous Cabot trail. In-season lobster suppers and the best of modern conveniences are outdone only by the down-home hospitality of this exceptional family-friendly campground. Heated pools and WiFi counterbalance the natural wonders on nearby coastal views.
