What landscape do you most like to stay in with your RV?

We know there’s a good chance you probably enjoy staying at most (or some) of the places listed in the poll below… but if you had to pick one to say that you like staying at most, which would you pick?

Would you be happiest in the desert where you’d be opening your RV’s door to a cactus and rocky mountain views? Or would you prefer to open your door to the oceanfront? Big pine trees in the forest?

If you answer “other,” please leave a comment and tell us where. We want to know. Thanks!

Close mountain views, but not directly in the forest

I like the forest. Grew up in the forest and at the base of a mountain beside a river and a short walk to the lake. Being one with nature and the critters it has. The fire flies, crickets, deer and the bears. Keep the city lights in the city I don’t need to see them up close or on the horizon.

I prefer the desert, forest, or beach but not necessarily in that order.

My favorite is in the forest, near a lake, surrounded by mountains. Fortunately, I live right near that environment in upstate NY.

Sadly, I have only been in urban and desert campgrounds.

Where are my ‘mountains’? … so ‘forest’, will have to do. 🙂

We live in Colorado, so I answered “Other”. Why was there no “Mountains” option? It’s not the same as “Forest” except in the Pacific Northwest and Appalachians (if we assume the Ozarks and Ouachitas are just hills).

Lakeside with shade should be an option!

Voted Forest, but Desert and Beach are great too! As far as Urban, might as well stay home.

We’ve done them all, over the years. But for us, a forested campsite, near a stream, with the mountains in view, is the best!!! Our favorite area is Smoky Mountains National Park.

Answered Other…Doesn’t really matter except I DON’T want to look out at a city and would prefer not to look at an endless sea of other RVs. I see aerial photos of parks like the ones in Myrtle Beach SC and think “No way would I stay where there are hundreds of RVs within 5 feet of each other.”

Mountains…preferable with a long sight line.

Other: mountains with long range views is my ultimate camping spot.

I said other because I love camping in the mountains where I can overlook the valley. We also love camping next to meadows of native grasses.

Other: meaning any terrain I don’t see on a regular basis. I live in a forest with a close mountain view so: beach, desert, river, prairie, distant view of big city lights, etc.

I don’t care to stay on the beach but to have the sounds of the water lull me to sleep at night is the best sleep ever! Someplace close to a body of water is perfect!

Our favorite campgrounds are found alongside rivers. Often times the confluence of 2 rivers where all we hear is the sound of rushing water. Montana and Idaho have many such campgrounds.

Everything except urban. That being said, some private camp grounds are very similar to urban settings.
Now, to those that might not be able to distinguish between Urban, Suburban and Rural, here is my definition. As a real estate appraiser(retired) for over 28 years, I was often asked to define the differences, which is part of a federal backed loan. If you can stand outside naked and no one sees, it’s rural. If you can stand outside Naked and someone calls the cops, it’s suburban. If you stand outside naked and no one cares, must be urban.
Hope you enjoyed the chuckle and be safe!

Hi Tom,
Just looked at an email from Diane, the World’s best proof reader and Mountain Mama. She caught the mistake and corrected it after contacting me. Guess I really stretched my gray matter limits.
The first one is Rural!
Stay safe.

Hi, Mike. “Other” Mike’s “uncensored” explanation was even better (he emailed it to me), but he cleaned it up for our site. (Thanks, “other” Mike!) Have a good afternoon. 😀 –Diane
