Top RV Parks for Fishing Enthusiasts Chosen by the Good Sam RV Travel Guide and Campground Directory

From angling in a secluded stream to dropping a line from a boat on a well-stocked lake, fishing is a big part of the RV experience. Indeed, almost half of RVers cast lines when they go on their RV travels, according to a recent study by PKF Consulting. These sporting enthusiasts range from seasoned anglers with fully loaded tackle boxes to folks who rent their rods for a day.

To help recreational vehicle enthusiasts find the best fishing spots, the editors and consultants of the Good Sam RV Travel Guide and Campground Directory have compiled a list of the top RV Parks for anglers. Boasting parks from across North America, the list is tailored for RV travelers seeking campgrounds with fishing on the property or located within a short distance to prime fishing sites.

The Good Sam RV Travel Guide’s top RV parks for anglers are:

Willow Beach RV & Campground, Willow Beach, Arizona
Tom Sawyer’s RV Park, West Memphis, Arkansas
Santee Lakes Recreation Preserve, Santee, California
San Carlos RV Park and Islands, Fort Myers Beach, Florida

Dropping a Line

RVers can choose from a variety of fishing experiences when they plan their trips. At Idaho’s Red Rock RV and Camping Park in Island Park, guests can cast a line in Lake Henry, home of “trophy winning” trout. Also nearby is the Madison River, known for stellar fly fishing.

Other parks offer a more sedate fishing experience. Follow the River RV Resort in Florence, Indiana, boasts a catch-and-release lake right on the property. No license is required for this activity, which is a great way for novice anglers to familiarize themselves with the sport. In Florida, San Carlos RV Park and Islands in Fort Myers helps guests make reservations with deep sea fishing charters at one of the most popular fishing hot-spots in the Gulf Coast.
