Planning a vacation can be stressful. Staying in your budget, finding a great location, and making sure that everyone will be satisfied are all valid considerations. These three Good Sam Campgrounds are all guaranteed to make for an unforgettable vacation that is sure to not disappoint. Leave the stress behind and start planning a trip to remember!
Located in the stunning mountains of Colorado, this 50-acre campground is sure to provide the relaxation that you are looking for. As if the scenery isn’t enough, Royal View has a huge pool and several hiking trails on site so there is always something to do without ever leaving the grounds. Royal View boasts lots of space with each site providing thirty and fifty amp full hookup services. Clean amenities are also promised, so a messy bathroom or dirty laundry doesn’t have to be a worry. Rates are all listed online and range from $33 a night for the standard site, to $39 a night for the executive sites. Prices do vary depending on how many people are in your group.
Good Thyme Café
Good Thyme Café serves not only delicious café plates, but also vegetarian meals, all priced at affordable rates. Their menu is packed with food for any time of the day, but their variety of breakfast options is without a doubt something to check out. Start the morning out light with the “Banana Berry Oats” or go for something savory such as the “Build Your Own Skillet” option. Whatever you choose, you’re sure to set yourself up for a great day!
Le Petite Chablis Restaurant & Bakery
Even if you have no idea what to order at a French restaurant, you will leave satisfied from La Petite Chablis, no doubt. Go for dinner and try the “Tilapia Creole,” or just hit up the bakery for a nice latte and a freshly baked pastry. Could there be a sweeter ending to your day?
Royal Gorge Route Train
This train ride will be one to remember as it takes you on a journey along the Arkansas River as you experience dramatic views of cliffs soaring up above you! The train departs at different times throughout most days and discount tickets are available at the campground office.
Royal Gorge Zip Line Tours
If you’re an adrenaline junky, make time in your schedule for Royal Gorge Zip Lining! These tours let you see Colorado in an entirely new perspective! With over 1 mile of “zipping” at speeds reaching up to 45 mph, you have to check this out!
Rock-N-Row offers something for everyone. Ride through the mountains on horseback, feel the power of the Arkansas River on a raft tour, take a trip out fly-fishing, or even spend the day rock climbing! Schedule a day to spend at Rock-N-Row and leave with memories you won’t ever forget!
If the ocean is more your taste, then somewhere with a beach is definitely a priority. Camp Gulf is located conveniently along the Emerald Coast Parkway with sites allowing the ocean to be in your front yard. This RV park includes tons of amenities such as: two pools, basketball courts, golf cart rentals, soft serve ice cream and a huge inflatable water slide!

McGuire’s Irish Pub
McGuire’s is an experience like none other! Start off with a bowl of their $.18 “Senate Bean Soup,” (yes, you read that right, eighteen cents), and follow it up with anything ranging from one of their twenty-five burger creations to something a little lighter from their “Diet Specials” menu. Since you are on vacation, nobody is going to judge you for satisfying that sweet tooth! Finish up with one of their incredible desserts such as the “Homemade Bread Pudding” or the “Lucky Chocolate Brownie A La Mode!” Sounds pretty irresistible, right?
Harry T’s Lighthouse
Harry T’s is a waterfront restaurant located within Harbor Walk Village. Being right on the water it would only make sense to order seafood, so try out their “Mahi-Mahi” or “Steamed Crab and Shrimp.” Offering not only scrumptious food, Harry T’s also offers live entertainment! They have artists lined up for almost every night and the schedule is available online so you can plan your evening perfectly!

Joseph’s By the Sea
Overlooking Saco Bay, the view alone makes this dining experience one for the books.
