I haven't seen exactly this topic, so here goes.

Which are the best two or three parks you have ever stayed in.? Money is no object--just the best.

Then, since specific factors will weigh differently with different folks, what are other parks you have stayed in that were especially memorable? Maybe because they were very good value, or had a fabulous view, were on the beach, whatever.

For us the two best parks were probably Traverse Bay RV Resort in Traverse City Michigan, and Crystal Lake RV Resort in Naples Florida. Both these are condo parks oriented to the Really Big Rig set, where you can rent owned lots, and the quality of the facilities shows it. Another very good one is Coastal Georgia RV Resort in Brunswick, Ga. That one is not only nice but it's right off I-95 so a great stopover park.

I suppose we have had several favorites. One certainly is the tiny Low-Key Hideaway Motel and RV Resort in Cedar Key, Florida. Very funky place (both the park and the town) and gorgeous sunsets.

Nobody said anything about where the campgrounds are located, and as I had the chance of camping in Europe while I worked there I'll include the best I found there. Here is my top ten list in order of preference:

Campofelice in Tenero, Switzerland

My favorite, especially impressive in winter. The micro climate of the north end of Lake Maggiore allows for semi-tropical plants out in the open while only a few hundred yards up in altitude you have snow with good skiing conditions. Beautiful mountain vistas with the villas of the rich and famous all around the valley.

Camping Jungfrau, Lauterbrunnen, Switzerland

Beautiful mountain vistas, short walking distance to the world famous mountain trains of Switzerland

Camping Golden Beach, Skala Panagia , Island of Thassos, Greece

A not very touristy Greek island, at the time the ferries where pretty small and you had to back up with your travel trailer to get on them. The island is covered in pine trees and this gives a particular taste to the honey of Thassos, the best honey I've ever eaten!

Camping Don Cactus, Carachuna, Granada - Andalucía, Spain

In winter the warmest place of all of Europe, right on the beach!

Aaregg Familiencampingplatz, Brienz, Switzerland

On a beautiful mountain lake, perfect place for one of the most spectacular drives in the world, doing the Grimsel, Furka and Susten Pass in one day.

Camping Michelangelo, Florence, Italy

The facilities are not as good as the preceding parks and very crowded in high season, but you are situated on a hill overlooking the old part of Florence, Italy and only a few steps will bring you to the best vantage point for the Ponte Veccio.

Admiral Robert B. Carney Park, NSA Naples, Italy

A US Navy recreation facility in an extinct crater a few miles north of Naples.

Hunting Island State Park, South Carolina

The sanitary facilities need a major overhaul, but it is right on the beach and the campsites are under a canopy of giant pine trees.

Fort De Soto Campground, Terra Verde, Florida

Close to beaches that are among the best ones in the USA, but not realistically walkable while hauling you beach stuff

Killbear Provincial Park, Parry Sound, Ontario, Canada

Has 7 different campground sections along the shores of Georgian Bay, Lake Huron. Pink sand beaches between granite outcroppings, too bad it's hard to get in to!
