There is a great private RV Park in West Yellowstone, It's Grizzly Rv Park.  In Glacier NP I stay at the KOA in St. Marys and the KOA in West Glacier.  The National Park campground at Swiftcurrent, near Many Glaciers Lodge is also a good place to see wild life.

Black Point Wildlife Drive, east of Titusville, FL (Google it).  It is a well maintained gravel road about seven miles long through the salt marshes of a wild part of costal Florida. Entrance is free with the Golden Age Passport.  It is a great birding spot, but other native wildlife can be observed.  There are camping sites in the Titusville area.  The same area is the home to Kennedy Space Center. A good place for a seafood dinner is Dixie Crossroads in Titusville. Their speciality is rock shrimp..

It all depends on what you are looking for.  If what you want is wildlife, the Gulf of California is hard to beat for whales this time of year.  In California, the elephant seals can be seen at Ano Nuevo State Reserve north of Santa Cruz.  The best bears near campgrounds are found at Salmon Creek north of Hyder, AK and Stewart, BC.  Camp in Stewart, the bears are across the border in the late summer, early fall.  For antelope you can't beat Wyoming.  Elk rule in Rocky Mountain National Park, you can see them in Estes Park!  Turkeys are abundant along the Natchez Trace Parkway in the fall or spring.  Birds are everywhere, there are books published on the best places for birdwatching.  We are near one of the best North American areas in Texas along the Mexican border and the Gulf of Mexico.  Several migration routes funnel through the area and we have an abundance of waterfowl as well as tropical birds seen nowhere else in the United States.  Hawaii has some great snorkeling as do the Florida Keys. 

 

If what you really want is Wild Life, I recommend HBO, Starz and Showtime!  :P
