RV Parks

Is there a particular resource that recommends RV parks? I found Good Sam website. Maybe a particular book? Is there a magazine I should subscribe to so I can begin learning?

I don't have my TT yet, still researching. The kind of RV Park that we would be interested in finding would be one with mountains, streams, rivers, lakes---but full-hook ups. We love nature, the woods, trails, etc..., and don't care about pools etc...but would like Wi-Fi, and TV access.

Thanks for info!
Dwain

And they have an iPhone app too, if that appeals to you. As does Good Sam.

What I have done is browse the various RV forums, (here, fgrv, camping world etc etc). They almost all have a "resort/camping review" section. Pick your area of choice.

The best natural areas are not compatible with WiFi and TV reception not to mention phone.

All you can do to be closest to those areas is to use state or national parks or Army Corps which will almost never have full hookups or such reception, and go to some private campgrounds on the way in or out. The private campgrounds will have all of that and laundry, and will cost for it, and you will often be right next to another RV. Or two or six.

Yeah, that's what I was afraid of. Once we get expereince, I may venture into the State Parks. So, you are saying that for the the woods, privacy, and nature feel, the State Parks will be the best camp grounds?
