Grabbed the wrong file. Hutch is absolutely correct with the shot being Lake Louise. It is in the west, just not our (USA) west.
Let's try this one more time with something a little more appropriate for the topic
OP said they were possibly coming through Estes Park. St. Malo chapel (Allens Park) is right close to Estes. You can Google for the exact highway 7 mile marker info.
Lots to see out west. Hope you have a great trip!

There are many good ones mentioned here so far, but if you're in IN and want to stay a bit closer, try Holiday Park in the Traverse City area. Be sure to ask for their older wooded circle areas. Right on the south side of Silver Lake (with their own private beach), only about 5 miles south of downtown TC and the Grand Traverse Bay. Has all the neat stuff the area has to offer (foodie town, dunes, Lake Michigan, scenery, lighthouses, wineries galore, bike trails on the Leelenau Penninsula, beautiful fall colors etc.) we love the area and will be there again for this Memorial Day weekend. Enjoy your new rig! Here are some pics from one of our fall trips... Click image for larger version

Let us know what your interests are. Sightseeing, hiking, fishing, golf, kayaking, etc., that may narrow the suggestions a little.

Alabama the beautiful

Our favorite campground is Corinth situated in the NW corner of Alabama. It is near the town of Double Springs in the Bankhead National Forest. it is on Smith Lake and there is ample boating, biking and hiking.
Hiking the in Sipsey wilderness is outstanding. There are even two nice trails on the property, one with two waterfalls.
It is kept immaculately by the operator Reserve America.
There are interesting sites around this property. Two natural bridges, waterfalls like the Caney Creek falls, and a unique place called Dismalites.
Reserve ahead but select the spot you like most that's available when you arrive. They do not reserve all spaces.

You CANNOT beat Michigan, especially the UP. Yes, I know there are many places to go but if you like kayaking/canoeing, hiking, mountain biking trails, lighthouses, fishing, ice-fishing, waterfalls, antiquing, boating, lighthouses, shipwrecks, camping, snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, golfing, birdwatching, wildlife observation, historical sites/buildings, 4-wheeling, fall color tours, cherry festivals, apple cider outings, National Forests, Wine tasting, cheese tasting, National Lake-shore, Sand Dunes, Hunting, and much more. Our favorite is any campground in the UP's Hiawatha National Forest. Pete's Lake or Bay Furnace Campground near Munising, MI. Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore nearby. Anytime, any season, it's there for you. Whew, be sure to narrow it down and go for it!

If you ever thought about going to Northern Wisconsin in the hot part of the summer, there's Camp Holiday in Boulder Junction, Lynn Ann's Campground in St. Germain (both of those have fantastic rec trails nearby for cycling), and Maple Heights Campground in Lakewood, WI (more to the Eastern part of the state). Lake of the Woods near Waupaca, WI is also lovely and there's great road cycling near there if you're into it; also lots of ATVing at Maple Heights and near LOTW. For breathtaking views, Sky High Campground between Portage and Baraboo is handier to the southern part of the state and very nice, too. I hope you have lots of great adventures wherever you go...good luck!

Texas Parks

We just got back from a trip around Texas and would highly recommend Blanco State Park. It is close to San Marcos, New Braunsfel, Luling & Lockhart. Beautiful shaded park with lots of room between coaches. Very clean and nice facilities.
The other park we really enjoyed was in Port Aransas - "On the Beach" RV Resort. It takes about 2 minutes to walk from your RV to the beach. Very clean & well maintained. Also very clean bath houses.
Enjoy your travels.

Welcome to the RV life! My wife and I bought our first RV just 4 years ago and have enjoyed it ever since. We've been on the road full-time for 9-months now (started Aug 2014).

Great campgrounds we've found:

Camp Florida RV Resort - Lake Placid FL

(good cable and sometimes good internet)
Gulf State Park - Gulf Shores, AL
(absolutely no cable TV nor internet on the grounds)
Elite Resorts - Salt Springs FL
(no cable TV unless you get it yourself, internet is available in the lodge)
Santa Rosa RV Resort - Navarre FL
(cable and internet)
KOA's are generally pretty good...but usually somewhat cramped (you might be close to your neighbor)
Neshonoc Lakeside - West Salem WI
(wisconsin campgrounds | vacations | cabins - Neshonoc Lakeside Campground Wisconsin)
Campground at Barnes Crossing - Tupelo MS
(Campgrounds at Barnes Crossing - Welcome!) (Excellent internet connection and good cable)

Timber Wolf Resort - we haven't been there yet, we'll be there in June. We're workcamping for June and July. Glacier National Park RV Campgrounds | Timber Wolf Resort
