AVRC Presents Best Campgrounds and RV Parks for 2012

I know that many of us are on the lookout for the best campgrounds and RV parks as we embark on our road trips. That’s why this list is so great (and useful) to have.

The National Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds (ARVC) conducts an exhaustive survey looking at customer service, employee training, operational metrics, national ratings, and community service to find the best small, medium, large, and mega parks of the year.

It looks like Texas ran away with it this year. Below you can have a look at a photo of the park. You’ll find a link to their websites below the photo.
