Rocky Fork State Park, Hillsboro, Ohio

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $13.00
Overall Rating:      

I have stayed here in Winter and Spring. The staff are very accommodating, especially in the Winter. Lots of park rangers as the park headquarters is at this campground on a hill overlooking the lower loop and lake. Campground is nothing special and rather small. Bathrooms at the lower loop by the lake need a major overhaul; just one shower that quickly loses heat after 10mins; and no privacy. Playgrounds needs work. Nice views of the lake. Verizon 4g LTE is strong. Park office and campstore wifi is strong too. Many different types of birds that migrate through-great for bird watching or star gazing. Some of the lower loop floods when it rains hard. We camped at Rocky Fork State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Little town of Hillsboro is just 10mins away. Smaller convenience stores less than 3 to 5miles. Paint Creek State park is down the road to the East about 14miles which has a nice 18hole disc course and a few mtn bike trails. Many national forest preserves with excellent hiking trails as well as Native American historical sites nearby. Military does aerial maneuvers above the area at night which is neat to watch when shooting their flares. Birding and fishing is very popular at this lake.

Pymatuning State Park, Andover, Ohio

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $26.00
Overall Rating:      

Pymatuning State Park Ohio, is an "oldie but goodie" park that people can't help re-visit every year despite its aging infrastructure. The people are warm and friendly at the campstore and will likely remember you if you visit each year. Campground guests usually bring their whole family thus there are children playing all the time-every day of the week-not just on weekends. The campground starts to fill on Thursday. Lots of children can be seen fishing at and along the boat dock and near the playground/beach. We've been to several Ohio state parks, but this one is really family oriented and kid friendly and the main reason we show up each year, as our children love this park. The park ranger patrols at least once a week. Facilities are very dated, but kept clean. A movie is played on Saturday nights. The mgr at the campground store is accommodating and will do her best to help you out. They have changed some things this year by removing the monthly rate and now just a few seasonals stay at the park-selected by a lottery system, thus the park seems more quiet than previous years, and there are always empty sites available even on the weekends. But the changes are state wide. I do wish they would take the Passport America discount, but they don't, unlike some of the more modern Ohio state parks. Verizon4g lte was 2 to 3 bars. Campstore office has a free hotspot that reaches 1 or 2 rows into the campground. We camped at Pymatuning State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Andover is around 5 miles away and does have one grocery store. Beer stores are closer. The Jamestown PA State park is just down road along the lake from this one, but is 1.50/night more. Walmarts are 30-35min North to Ashtabula , 40mins South to Greenville and 25 - 30 mins East to Meadville, Pa. Great fishing along the causeway that crosses the lake at the Oh/PA border.

Dillon State Park, Nashport, Ohio

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $13.00
Overall Rating:      

Dillon State park is one of the nicer kept up parks within the Ohio State Parks system. The campground is 5 to 10 minutes from Zanesville making shopping an easy chore. There are two convenient stores about 2 miles from the main campground entrance and a small restaurant about 1 mile from the campground. The terrain is gently hilly within and outside the campround, with lots of hiking, biking and bridle trails. A very large beach, along with lighted tennis courts can be found about 1 mile from the campground entrance. The campground store is large and sells ice cream which was nice during the hot weather. On Saturday nights a movie is played outside near the campground office. Most of the employees at the camp office were very friendly. Park rangers patrol the campground quite regularly. An 18 hole disc course is kept up. Lots of black raspberries and blackberries can be picked just about everywhere. Lightning bugs galore and the smell of honeysuckle permeate the air. Walk-in sites around site 106 get a very strong Verizon 4g lte signal - 4 to 5 bars. We camped at Dillon State Park in a Motorhome.

Lake offers kayak and canoe rentals. Occasional weekend campground events. Mtn biking trails are rated from easy to hard. Zanesville has everything you need for your restaurant and shopping needs and is only 5 to 10mins from the campground. The roads into the campground from 146 are somewhat hilly especially the first one from hwy 146. Passport America discount from Sun to Wed night which is $13/night.

East Fork State Park, Bethel, Ohio

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $28.00
Overall Rating:      

Busy on the weekends, but with so many camping loops there is always something available for a couple of nights. The loops are diverse with some open and sunny while others covered in lots of trees. Generally quiet at night except on the weekends as quiet hours are not enforced, nor did I see law enforcement...not even once. Mini-golf is very far (at main entrance) from the camping loops except loop A. Small basketball court that floods when it rains. Lots of garbage and syringes down by the lake from the campground. Need more park ranger patrols as people come in at night and loiter around. Site 71 is aligned East to West with nose of vehicle pointing East and is up against the forest on one side while the other side is separated by 20 to 30feet of grass from another camp site. Some hiking trails but watch for ticks. Nice paved biking trail, but many loops work too. C and D loops are close to a playground. Verizon signal was 4g 2bars and times 3bars depending what loop I was in. We camped at East Fork State Park in a Motorhome.

Charlestown State Park, Charlestown, Indiana

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $51.00
Overall Rating:      

$9 out-of-state per vehicle entrance fee, which totaled us $18 for the RV and our other vehicle. Electric was $30. I would not stay here again for just one night. In the past they let the vehicle entrance fee slide. Not this time. Everything else is what expected of a state park. Bathrooms clean and sites generally level. Very small playground with some tiny wooden swings; that's it. We camped at Charlestown State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Douglas lake tailwaters (below dam) campground is another place to stay if this one is full. Both parks are managed by the same agency and are a few minutes from each other. Smoky mtns about 45 to hr away. Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg are closer. Rates at both douglas lake campgrounds (headwaters and tailwaters) are much less expensive than many surrounding campgrounds, and easier to get to from the hwy.

Asheville West KOA, Candler, North Carolina

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

Felt unsafe at night as random cars would show up at night and take off early in the morning before staff made their rounds. Absolutely no night time security or checks. West Asheville does have a growing crime problem. Site was small with no room for another vehicle. Firepits are made from gathered rocks which is ok, but seemed a little cheap for a koa. Sites did have fallen twigs on them...needed to be raked. Campground is in the process of renovations per mgt. Bathrooms were very nice and clean. The hilly trail around a part of the campground seemed maintained. Tiny pond was nice for the kids with a ton of bullfrogs at night. Park was small and just OK for young kids, but somewhat out of the way from the sites. There is hwy traffic but it was white noise for me. There is a large truck stop behind the back in sites, but again- white noise for me. I slept well with the drone of distant idling engines, as the truck stop is way down a 100 ft dangerous hill as the sites are on the hill. Owners seemed nice enough at the office. Person cleaning bathrooms was very warm and accommodating. It's a humble no frills, work in progress koa. I'd stay again, but they really need to work on their night time security. Put a fence up behind the back in sites. Get some real firepits, and maybe another better placed playground. Wifi was intermittent. Verizon hotspot compensated for the wifi issues. I feel this place has potential and they appear to be trying to improve the campground. We camped at Asheville West KOA in a Motorhome.

Singing Hills RV Park & Campground, Cave City, Kentucky

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $17.00
Overall Rating:      

Very friendly owners that go out their way to answer all your questions. Great fishing pond with lots of fish. Free fishing gear and other things at the front office. Very clean and kept up bathhouse. Internet at site 17 along the pond was fast at around 10Mbs. Sites are a little cramped but still can setup a tent by the RV. Lots of cave tourists. Stores 5 to 10mins in Cave City and Walmart is a little further SE of Cave City. The caves are about 5 to 10mins West of the campground. The roads to the campground and caves are curvy and somewhat dangerous; so drive slow and safely. Singing Hills RV park also has a Propane filling tank. Compared to other nearby campgrounds you can't beat the price. We camped at Singing Hills RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Diamond Caverns is closer to the campground than Mammoth Cave if you don't reserve a tour at Mammoth Cave; Diamond Caverns is a nice alternative though a couple buck more expensive. Grocery and liquor stores a few minutes down the road in Cave City. Roads are curvy with no guardrails, so drive very cautiously. The campround comes up fast on the Right just around a corner. The entrance to Singing Hills RV park is framed by two small wagon wheels.

Sacora Station Campground, Piedmont, South Dakota

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $10.00
Overall Rating:      

Campground is between Rapid City and Sturgis. We stayed at a cabin for a few nights then a tent site for over a week.

Rates are unbeatable: $50 a night for an air-conditioned, medium sized cabin with two Queen sized beds, which includes a fridge/freezer.

The $10 per night tent sites (that's right: 10 bucks a night), include electric, lots of space and a covered picnic table.

There are several buildings with bathrooms and showers, somewhat outdated looking but fully functional.

Owners are extremely friendly and will go out of their way to help you out if you are in a bind. They are laid back and leave you alone.

Nice little restaurant/bar on campground premise with good food and good people. No noise from the bar/restaurant as it is someways away from the campground.

Downside: somewhat close to I-90, but at night the hwy is pretty quiet.

Friendly residents, friendly owners: nice little place in an otherwise barren and inhospitable land.

Also free wifi (no password) rocked in the tent site area. We camped at Sacora Station Campground in a Motorhome.

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

40 per night for "lakeside" uneven and bumpy dirt/grass area. It's more expensive in Yellowstone, thus an ok deal. Didn't like long screws laying along basketball court where people drive their cars very nearby. Also the marina area needs to be cleaned up some. Stuff laying around. No soap in the public restroom. Only one roll of toilet paper. The other dispenser was left empty.

They charge 1 dollar extra for purchase less than 10 dollars if use credit card. Products in store are expensive. People seemed nice. Lots of people from other countries frequent this campground, which was refreshing, and fun to talk with them.

It's beautiful here, though they could use less lights at night. Ruins stargazing, to some degree. We camped at Jared's Wild Rose Ranch Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Pride RV Resort, Waynesville, North Carolina

Date of Stay: April, 2016 - $15.00
Overall Rating:      

Everything is clean and well maintained. Sites are pretty close together, but large motorhomes will have no issues as most of the sites are pull-throughs. The campground hosts patrol the grounds continuously. There is a handful of permanent residents that make the campground their personal home, therefore, any loud noises and boisterous camping activities will be frowned upon and watched closely. There is an adjacent highway with some noise, during the day. Loud noise can be heard at night from a lumber factory. The manager can be very forthright in his ideas about toilets and bathrooms being not cleaned in that he will make accusations if he thinks your children dirtied the bathroom. The campground does have a religious theme.

I've stayed here before and didn't mind it but this time the manager made accusatory comments about my children trashing the bathroom. Also they don't want people feeding the geese, despite no signs stating otherwise; however, it is OK to feed the ducks, as far as we could tell.

I would not stay here again because of the way I was treated by the manager and some of his seasonal workers. Other than that if you can keep quiet and mind your own business, then staying a night or two can be an OK experience. We camped at Pride RV Resort in a Tent.

Salt Fork State Park, Lore City, Ohio

Date of Stay: November, 2015 - $24.00
Overall Rating:      

One of the campstore staff members needs a lesson in customer service or needs to get a non-public job. Campground loops are all on a hill that sits a couple hundred feet above a large man-made lake. Woods are rugged with lots of briars, vines and poison ivy. Not many pines or hemlocks. Just typical hardwood forest. Well marked diverse trails. Huge beach. Large dog park. A lot of little private nooks. Deer everywhere. Ticks, too.

'A' loop is open at first but narrows into the trees. 'C' loop is in the trees but stays open year round by a bathroom/shower house that is open year round. 'E' loop is nice and open. 'F' and 'G' loops are very open and large. Most loops close by the end of November or early December except for 'C' loop. This park is huge with miles and miles of trails. I can hear the hwy off in a distance, but the sound is a very low din...barely hear it.

No monthly discounts, at least when I asked. We camped at Salt Fork State Park in a Motorhome.

Adirondack Gateway Campground and Lodge, Cold Brook, New York

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $19.00
Overall Rating:      

Tough campground to rate. At times if felt cliquish. Most of the campers know each other and it felt to me that you really have to stay a couple or so months or perhaps seasons to fit in.

The lady at the office while very friendly seemed somewhat passive aggressive about many things. On one hand she wasn't sure we could stay past 2 wks using the PA rate as there was a chance we would be forced to move when the time came for other campers, but when the time came, almost no one would show up because of alleged cancellations, thus we were allowed to stay past 2wks at a PA rate. I wish she was a little more upfront with her rates policy as their website says nothing about how long one can stay using the PA rate. Even so, we were allowed to stay nearly a month at the PA rate. She mentioned in passing other campgrounds we could try when I went up to the office to pay for another week. Perhaps a passive aggressive way of hinting to us to move on. Even so she allowed us to pay late many times, without a word or care, which seemed odd, but it's their laid back kind of way.

The recreational center was free with a ton of toys. They have a nice lounge with all kinds of movies and books. Nice store. Wifi is good at the Rec room and ok in the first 5 or so spots by an open field.

They have over 3 miles of nature trails and almost no light pollution making wonderful star gazing. One can hear all kinds of animal sounds at night. It's a very quiet campground, even on the weekends. Not many kids but some of which are seasonal or rent by the month. Our kids enjoyed playing with 3 girls that rent by the month, and were not happy to leave them.

Overall the place is laid back, but felt a little cliquish to me. Like a unique community. I liked it, I didn't like it at times. It was weird and unique all at the same time. I would visit again, even if I'm not sure they would want me to visit again. But I think they would. We camped at Adirondack Gateway Campground and Lodge in a Motorhome.

Sned-Acres Family Campground, Ovid, New York

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $17.00
Overall Rating:      

A very nice and large open campground with motorhomes backed up against a treeline that provides lots of shade through much of the day.

A select few sites with full-hookups are situated in a more open area with much less shade, but more privacy and closer to the pond. The sites are at times a little cramped but not too bad.

Our site was Water/Electric, and very close to the clean bathrooms and showers. The bathroom is interesting in that the ceiling is open throughout the building with tall walls that divide the womens/mens area; however, it is easy to hear what's going on in the other bathrooms or showers.

The saltwater Pool is situated in an open area with lots of sun. They do have umbrellas for shade and a nearby tree.

Playground is large with many homemade contraptions for the kids. Rec room is in a garage, which does require a fee to play billiards and few other arcade games. I think the ping-pong is free.

Huge bass pond with some very large bass (4lb+), though most were around a 12" or so.

Nature trail along the edge of forest line that goes down to a large gorge, which then branches into many gorges.

Owners are very friendly and made us Amish friendship bread.

The area is situated between two large finger lakes, of which are lined with all kinds of places to visit. The area gets an inordinate amount of sunshine compared to the rest of the state, given its unique mediterranean like micro-climate.

The place has a gentle, warm, sunny, nice feel to it. Everyone seemed very friendly too. We camped at Sned-Acres Family Campground in a Motorhome.

Pymatuning State Park, Andover, Ohio

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $24.00
Overall Rating:      

Stayed in a walk-in RV campsite for a week or so before July 4th weekend and through July 4th weekend and a few days later.

First impressions of a campground start at the office personnel. The staff at Pymatuning State Park, OH side were extremely friendly and accommodating. No matter what time of day, even amidst other customers yelling at them, they were very friendly and patient.

Not only were the staff friendly but so were the seasonals. Just about all of them would make small talk or say hi when walking by.

The campground is huge with a ton of families. Lots of children, which my children enjoyed. Most of the kids seemed to get along just fine no matter where they were from; be it Cleveland or rural areas.

The bathrooms were a little beat up structurally, but clean, with lots of hot and high water pressure. There are many places to find drinkable water to include filling the RV's fresh water tank. Many accessible dump stations. A ton of playgrounds. The beach was a little small but it didn't matter with the kids. Lots of fishing from the lakeshore.

4th of July weekend was a blast with fireworks being launched along lakeshore. They even had an outdoor movie theater playing Disney type movies. Lots of happy energy that weekend. Every weekend had many families with children. Even mid-week was full of families with children.

Wifi was rocking from the camp office if the RV wasn't more than 3 or 4 rows down toward the lake, else you need some kind of range booster to pick-up the wifi.

We really enjoyed the vibe of the campground and general area. Just an easy going laid back feel.

It's the kind of campground that you want to return to.

The only negative I observed was the park ranger/police guy. He seemed to be looking to harass people, but other than that it's a near 10. We camped at Pymatuning State Park in a Motorhome.
