Having an RV isn’t just about the open road, though that’s certainly a big draw. It’s also about the destination. And when you can go anywhere that the highways may take you, there are a lot of opportunities ahead. These four places belong on your bucket list of locations to visit—whether you’re a well-experienced RVer or brand new behind the wheel.

Down south, way south, where Highway 1 ends, is Key West. Boyd’s Key West Campground is near downtown, and offers oceanfront campsites with a pool and beach, a marina, and free Wi-Fi. There are a whopping 250 sites, but it’s a popular place because of the many nearby opportunities to experience everything Key West has to offer, so make sure you book early to get the best spots.
2. Fort Wilderness, Florida

Disney parks are fun for the whole family, and this park keeps you close to the action while also offering a peaceful refuge after all of your mouseketeering. Fort Wilderness, owned by Disney Parks & Resorts, puts you on 750 acres of forest between the Magic Kingdom and Epcot. As a Disney resort, you’ll find all of the amenities you’d expect, like pools, archery, fishing excursions, and a less-than-rustic arcade for when the kids have had enough nature.
3. Rivers Edge RV Park, Alaska

Thanks to the beauty of the open road, we’re not bound to the contiguous United States. Rivers Edge RV Park in Fairbanks, Alaska, opens up a new world of exploration. This quiet park offers plenty of opportunities to stretch your legs with big, open spaces (what else would you expect from Alaska?) as well as a series of connected walking and cycling trails. And with historic downtown Fairbanks just a shuttle ride away, you can take in all of the last frontier.
4. South Padre Island, Texas
On the very southern edge of Texas in the Gulf of Mexico lies South Padre Island. Practically one giant beach, there are hundreds of spots just waiting for RVs. With recreational options aplenty—deep-sea fishing, parasailing, dolphin-spotting, and leisurely walks along the beaches to name a few—there’s also plenty of opportunities to park and just enjoy the scenery at the edge of the US.
