Whip O Will Campsite, Round Top, New York

Date of Stay: October, 2015 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

Stayed over Columbus Day weekend. Great value, 2 days 3rd night free. No activities, most amenities closed for season. Read mixed reviews, but as there are many wonderful sights to visit all within 1/2 an hour drive time, the lack of campground activities is forgiven. The lake on the campground is a gem. They really need to make that their priority, it was beautiful and serene. Unfortunately the rest of the campground is anything but. The people were friendly but the houses built onto campers was more like an unkempt trailer park. Most sites had piles of broken trash, doors, tables, kiddie pools. Wish they had a few more rules about trash and building houses. We luckily had a semi-private site for ourselves and another family, a little oasis. People stayed up late, it was but bearable. Only hot water for showers near main office, but otherwise hookups and electricity was good. Place has potential, probably won't return. We camped at Whip O Will Campsite in a Travel Trailer.

Bald Mountain Camp Ground, Townshend, Vermont

Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $23.00
Overall Rating:

The main field was a strange experience, glad we went with a large group. They let us arrange ourselves how ever we wanted, so we had this neat courtyard feel. The other campers were all so friendly. The amenities are none existent, bathrooms were satisfactory, the creek is beautiful. Was running low due to lack of rainfall as was the reservoir up the road. Their were issues with water and electricity but staff worked to resolve and kept us informed. As the group next to us said, we got cold beer and console to play, we're good. Be prepared to be off grid, our kids were not. Yet across the creek there is another campground that have many more amenities and links to the outside world. If we go back to area might try the other campground, but with a group Bald Mtn was fun. We camped at Bald Mountain Camp Ground in a Travel Trailer.

Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Yonder Hill, Madison, Maine

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

They are changing over to a Yogi Bear franchise, seem to be making improvements to the sites and roads. Very shady campground, located right outside of town on a main road (stores w/I a few minutes drive). Our site was in the back row, had 2 neighbors several sites away for the first night but after that we were alone, so very private. Though the other campers seemed very aloof and unfriendly, they drove around in gas powered golf carts and no "hi", no waving. The sites are being leveled, though we almost slide off a ledge of gravel and this was our first big scare w/the camper in our 3rd yr of camping. The cable boxes are in the woods every 3 sites, so had to go out an buy 100 ft cable. The pool is huge, we didn't partake in the daily activities as we were out the 2 days there so can't comment on them. Our kids liked biking around and the huge fish in the feeding ponds, can't call it a "fishing pond". The small store was fine, kids liked the arcade.

We saw very little employees, or if they were employees they never introduced themselves or checked on us. The young girl in the office was sweet, but knew nothing about area or the campground its self, and had no means of finding us information. Asked about nearby fishing at the 20 lakes in a 30 mile radius, she knew nothing. Finally a local gave us directions to a hidden boat launch nearby w/a little beach, was perfect for kids to caught small pumpkin fish and pikes. An older lady at the desk was more helpful but only saw her the last day. The location is good, the KOA is so far out of town would not consider that. Maybe in a few years will try here again.

Hid'n Pines Family Campground, Old Orchard Beach, Maine

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $66.00
Overall Rating:

The cost was more than we usually spend, but it was a holiday weekend at the beach, so kind of expected. The extra costs for children seems absurd, tells me they don't want families. The paved road and grassy sites are very nice, adequate space and hook ups. When we booked and upon arrival they are overly concerned about people leaving dogs in their trailers, state it could lead to immediate expungement. The location to town it good, trolley picks up out front, or short walk, plus there is a supermarket one block away, which is good as they have no store. But they also have no activities and scarcely any amenities at the campground, yet there were tons of families. Next door at their sister campground they have over-the-top activities and amenities, but not open to us. We had friends staying next door but would have to pay guests fees to visit them. They state they have separate finances, so? We may stay here in the future as it was clean and located conveniently, but may first try a few other campgrounds. We camped at Hid'n Pines Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Whispering Pines Campground, Hope Valley, Rhode Island

Date of Stay: May, 2015 - $56.00
Overall Rating:

Stayed memorial weekend, first visit. We had some trouble initially getting to our site do to trees and width of roads but with the help of an employee we made it. Everyone at this campground is very friendly and nice, owners checked in on us several times during the weekend. We had a large site but some appeared small. Hilly. It was nice to see so many campers partaking in the activities, each event was full up and enjoyed by a large group. It was also nice that the events were fundraiser for areas organizations, like the duck races in the stream. Our kids loved boating on the small pond and exploring in this wooden area. The roads are tough to navigate, we understand they want the trees but this made for a scary ride in and out. Camp store is small but there are stores a couple of blocks down for shopping. Just really nice people. We camped at Whispering Pines Campground in a Travel Trailer.
