Newbie wants to know the great campgrounds

We will be picking up our first camper in a couple weeks. I'm wanting to find the best and most beautiful campgrounds in our country. I live in Indiana but being teachers, we have the summer to travel all over. What are your favorites? Thanks for your help.

You should narrow down where you are willing to go to.

We love Mama Gertie's Hideaway in Swannanoa, N.C. In the mountains near Asheville. They clean every site - right down to the sewer cap - every time someone leaves. They also have new premium "view" sites on a mountaintop that rival any scenic overlook you've ever pulled into.

Welcome!
Don't know if you're interested in a trip out west but we have some of the most scenic landscapes, National Parks and Monuments in the country. We are putting together an itinerary starting the week after Memorial Day. Roughly ten days starting with the Grand Canyon, Antelope Canyon, Monument Valley, Natural Bridges and ending up in Capitol Reef. July will have on a trip to Crater Lake, OR, then to the coast staying at Tillicum right on the beach, Pacific City then on to Portland to catch up with the family for a three family caravan down to Central Oregon. Sisters, Mt Bachelor, Sun River etc.
We have not yet made the opportunity happen to visit the eastern half of the country, but if you'd like some ideas for a western tour let us know. We'd be happy to help.

Camaraderie,

That looks suspiciously like Lake Louise, Alberta, Canada. There is a Canadian flag behind those canoes which are the same as those you can hire. What you cannot see is the hotel which would be much further to the right.
Btw, the Lake Louise campsite isn't near the lake either. It's quite a distance away, even by car.

Thanks for the suggestions so far. I will definitely check them all out. That is a gorgeous picture; I would love to go there too. We eventually will go to every state plus Canada and Mexico but if I had to narrow it down now, we are thinking about Colorado and South Dakota this summer and Tennessee or North Carolina in the fall.

North Carolina: mountains on one end, ocean on the other. Lots of history as one of the original 13 colonies. Glad to hear you might visit us. Y'all come!
