When we say “camping,” you probably think of a tent, a bonfire, and having to use some communal bathroom with no running water, but for some “camping” has become quite the luxurious experience. As RVs continue to get bigger and better, offering all the comforts of home, RV resorts have also been updating and upgrading by becoming luxurious destinations all their own. Here are five of the poshest, most luxurious RV resorts in America...

Just minutes from some of the country’s most beautiful white sand beaches, Bella Terra has made a reputation for itself as THE RV resort in Gulf Shores.

The Springs at Borrego RV Resort - Borrego Springs, CA

Palm trees- check. Mountains- check. Golf- check. Beautiful weather- check. Well, we think the Springs at Borrego RV Park pretty much checks every box for a dream RV resort. Golf not your thing? No worries, there’s so many other activities here you’ll never be bored. Play tennis, catch & release bass, catfish, and tilapia from the pond, take a hot mineral bath or even attend one of their star gazing parties at their “astronomy park.” Located in one of only 2 International Dark Sky Communities, there are few better places to stargaze.

Petoskey RV Resort - Petoskey, MI

If there was a special award for best-maintained grounds, Petoskey RV Resort in Petoskey, MI would have to be a finalist. Another Good Sam 10/10/10-rated resort, the grass just seems greener here. If the immaculate landscaping isn’t enough to convince you this place is posh, maybe the tennis court, 9-hole putting course, and outdoor pool & spa will. After enjoying all the outdoor amenities, relax in the massive lodge complete with a theater, billiard room, card rooms, and fully equipped bar for the resort’s frequent cocktail parties.

Of course, its proximity to the Bay Harbor Golf Club, Deep Water Marina, and the Little Traverse Wheelway also make Petoskey RV Resort the perfect place for an RVer to set up camp. (See more pictures of Petoskey RV Resort)

Normandy Farms Family Camping Resort - Foxboro, MA

Given a perfect rating by Good Sam and named one of the 7 premier parks in the world, Normandy Farms is truly an oasis in the east. Tucked into the woods between Boston and Cape Cod, Normandy Farms has been a family owned and operated RV resort since 1971 and offers something for everyone -- an arcade, 3 outdoor pools, 3 jacuzzis, an indoor pool & sauna, a fitness center, fishing pond, disk golf, a dog park, a bike park, and more. 

Using the same land their ancestors farmed as far back as the 1700s, the Daniels family has designed a camping resort where an entire family can spend a week without ever having a moment of boredom. Adults can pamper themselves with Yoga and massages while kids can enjoy the massive playgrounds and parks. (See more pictures of Normandy Farms)
