Raccoon Creek State Park, Hookstown, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: May, 2016 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

We are in a motorhome and normally stay in the A loop. This trip, "A, B, C, and D" loops were not open in early May so we had to stay in the E and F loops. I would estimate 80% of the sites in these loops are not good for larger motorhomes. They are simply not sufficiently level or sufficiently long enough. Trailers & popups would be fine, but Motorhomes don't do well when it is necessary to raise rear wheels off the ground to get level! Site leveling aside, this is a wonderful State Park - many activities to enjoy. We camped at Raccoon Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

Kiasutha Campground, Bradford, Pennsylvania

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

Narrow roads to get to campground, but worth it. We had site #77 reserved for 2 nights but were unable to level our motorhome inspite of additional wheel blocks. Pull through site, but quite a slope. Trailer would not have a problem. Swapped for site 85 which was level, but no electricity while we were there. Sites #43 and 40 are the very best - level and direct path and view of the lake. Campground host very friendly and knowledgeable. Some concern about bears in the campground but we never saw any. I'd have no concern camping an any site in a trailer, popup or 5th wheel; but I'd estimate only 1/3 of the sites are level enough to be reasonable for a motorhome. There is a $10 fee to swap a site for another. Scenery is beautiful, stars incredible, and bathrooms surprisingly nice. We camped at Kiasutha Campground in a Motorhome.

Four Mile Creek State Park, Youngstown, New York

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $26.00
Overall Rating:      

We used this as a base for seeing Niagara Falls. About 25 minutes North of the falls, this 300-site campground had very nice electrical sites for our RV with a view of Lake Ontario. Roads are well paved and our site was quite level. The electricity was good also. Poor Verizon cell coverage (1 bar). You MUST back-in to all sites. Some of the Premium campsites along the water would be great for trailers with large rear windows. Motorhomes, with their best view out the front windshield, are best across the road from a premium site. We camped at Four Mile Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Be careful about cell phone coverage. You're close to Canada and your phone, if in Roaming mode, could accrue international charges very easily. Also, the exit from the Robert Moses Parkway to Four Mile Creek road is in very poor condition with multiple large potholes.

Camp Eriez Campground, Lake City, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

I was very impressed. Friendly attendant, a large pull-through site for our 2 night stay, perfectly level, water at site and a generally friendly, safe, and quiet atmosphere made this a great stop over. One problem-we needed to use our Frank's Autoformer to boost the campground voltage from 99 to 120 to run our A/C safely. Campground abut 15 miles West of Erie. Good Verizon signal in campground for cellphones. We camped at Camp Eriez Campground in a Motorhome.

Fresh produce/fruits about 5 miles East of campground on US 5. Fun Ice Cream shop on road too. The Erie Playhouse (downtown) was excellent and we totally enjoyed their performance. Presque Isle State Park is beautiful but crowded. Get to boat tour early for FREE pontoon boat ride through the lagoons narrated by volunteer. Great beaches. Erie Maritime Museum is nice - big draw is the war of 1812 and sailing ship battles. Worth seeing! You'll learn where "Don't give up the ship" came from !

We came without reservations and they accommodated us with a nice electric site, quite level, and good electrical. Park was clean and attendant was charming. Sites were spacious with good separation. We camped at Buck Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

Kickapoo State Recreation Area, Oakwood, Illinois

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

This has been a good over-night stay for us when we travel East/West. Always been happy here but this time was not good. No hot water in showers at all. Restrooms were dirty. Waited an hour before attendant came to check people in (we arrived at 3:30, he came closer to 5pm and was not very friendly). We camped at Kickapoo State Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

Interstate State Park, Taylors Falls, Minnesota

Date of Stay: October, 2014 - $33.00
Overall Rating:      

This was an amazing, and fun experience. "Interstate" refers to the fact half of the park is on the Minnesota side of the St Croix river and half on the Wisconsin side. We camped on the Minnesota side. Here there are mostly electric sites (sites directly abutting the river are non-electric). Site 20 has a lovely view, but you are terribly close to Site 19. 21 has the best view but is tent-only and non-electric. Most of the sites were not level. Our site sloped a bit but I have blocks to raise front wheels and that helped. Bath house is very well maintained. There are a Ton of people here on weekends because of the marvelous hiking trails. During midweek, we had this whole park almost to ourselves. It was lovely. There are boat rides and canoe rentals nearby. Hike 1.25 mi North to the visitor center and tour the most amazing potholes! 10,000 years ago the St Croix River was one of the largest rivers in the world. At over 200' deep it carved out the river bed from igneous rock and, in doing so, created huge circular holes in the bedrock. You must see it to believe it! We drove over to the Wisconsin side of the park. They have a Northern and a Southern camping area neither of which exceeded what we had on the Minnesota side. Their entire South campground was non-electric (some lovely sites). The North campground was partial electric. Some of the best sites were right next to the bath house. Rate of $33 = $23 for camping + $5 electricity + $5 for park use permit. Good Verizon signal in the campground (and throughout the park) for both Internet data (4G) and cellular. Lots of hungry raccoons so keep your campsite clean of edibles! I'd come here again. Next time, allow more time for hiking the trail, take a boat ride on the river, and relax. We camped at Interstate State Park in a Motorhome.

Daly Park, Mapleton, Minnesota

Date of Stay: September, 2014 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

We read about this park on these reviews and decided to spend a long weekend here. We are so glad we did! We arrived on a late Friday morning and drove through the 4 camping areas. The largest, and the one we liked the best, was area 4 at the far end of the park. Just about every site was empty so we got a great impression of the park. Every site we saw looked level. Some were a bit close and some had a bit more space but all of the RV sites seemed workable. We selected a site we liked, #84, right down by the lake, big area around the fire pit, and very easy access. When we went to check-in at the caretakers home, we found that almost every site had been previously reserved over their web but #84 had just been cancelled! We spent 3 very nice days here. Bathrooms were clean. Hiking in the park was fun. We walked around the "island" and found it a very nice trail. Our dog was with us and enjoyed the park too. One problem, many people here did not follow the dog-on-6-foot-lease rule so we were a little nervous twice and nearly needed to intervene in one situation. View of the lake was wonderful. Very breezy while here so there were no bugs at all! Good Verizon 4G coverage throughout the park. Very nice family type of atmosphere though the majority of campers seemed to be friendly older empty-nesters. Good playgrounds for those kids that were here. Areas 3 and 4 have modern flush toilet bath houses. Areas 1 and 2 seemed to rely on porta-potties. We camped at Daly Park in a Motorhome.

Tahquamenon Falls State Park, Paradise, Michigan

Date of Stay: August, 2014 - $18.00
Overall Rating:      

The Lower Falls Campground was fairly crowded when we were there. Nice bathhouse (toilets/showers) were heavily used (and sometimes by sloppy people!). Many very nice sites - level, easy access, a few pull-throughs, and excellent fire-pits and tables. Hiking to the Falls was enjoyable. Naturalist tour was informative. Check the Fish House restaurant in Paradise - They open at noon ONLY if they have fish caught that morning to serve. Moderately priced, very good fish & fries. Then drive up to Ship Wreck Museum (Whitebridge). Admission was expensive, it felt like a "tourist trap", but it was fun to go and see. Campground was an ideal base for these side trips. We camped at Tahquamenon Falls State Park in a Motorhome.

Interlochen State Park, Interlochen, Michigan

Date of Stay: August, 2014 - $18.00
Overall Rating:      

I am generally amazed at the quality of Michigan State Parks! Interlochen was no exception - very comfortable site. We stayed here as base camp to explore Sleeping Bear Dunes National Park and this worked just fine (Dunes were marvelous by the way). Roads in good condition at the park, sites level, good electric, and a strong cellular signal for internet access. Lots of people here so bathrooms did get a bit dirty between cleanings. We camped at Interlochen State Park in a Motorhome.

Fayette Historic State Park, Garden, Michigan

Date of Stay: August, 2014 - $16.00
Overall Rating:      

The campground is nicely laid out, spaces generally reasonable. #30 is a pullthrough, but trees limit its utility. Several sites are not sufficiently level for a Class A though fine for tent/popup/trailer. No shower house (only vault toilets) and no flush toilets. Electric at each site. Faucet to fill tanks/containers available. There was NO Cellular coverage in the Lower Campground. 1/2 mile walk to the Historic town of Fayette. This was very fascinating and worth the trip. Free admission once you're in the park. We camped at Fayette Historic State Park in a Motorhome.

Kickapoo State Recreation Area, Oakwood, Illinois

Date of Stay: August, 2014 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

This was an overnight stop for us. We had a nice and level pull-through site. Good space around us, good electric, and some mature trees for shade. Nice not to have to disconnect the toad when overnighting. This is our 2nd time here and will continue to enjoy for our stops. Only drawback - several miles of narrow twisty 2 lane to get to the park. Lots of geese. My kids laughed when, looking at the goose droppings by the river, they realized the relevance of the name....Kick-a-poo! Bathrooms and showers were very clean. We camped at Kickapoo State Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

Frontenac State Park, Frontenac, Minnesota

Date of Stay: June, 2014 - $28.00
Overall Rating:      

We pulled in on a Friday late morning and got a lovely non-reservable site in the first loop. Site itself was large, with a fire pit and solid table. Slight slope down to the road which I could accommodate with a 3" board under each front wheel on the motorhome. Good electricity (121 volts) and solid Verizon 4G coverage, and about 15 digital TV stations detected. Campground is well patrolled and there was no trouble of any kind while we were there. Lots of kids on bikes having a great time racing around (we think of them as a floor show). Some fine hiking too along the ridge of the bluffs, finding several points of interest, finding geocaches left in the neighborhood, and attending a most interesting naturalist hike were among the available activities. Only down side - Ranger station sells wood for $6/bundle (which is expensive for the area) and, when I got it to the site, I found it was not totally dry - rather the fire struggled to stay alive and was hissing/sputtering until it really hot and the moisture was driven off. We hooked up the toad in the ranger station parking lot. They were nice about that and you have a lot more space than trying to do that in the campground. We had a great long weekend at Frontenac State Park. I'd need to recommend it to others. We camped at Frontenac State Park in a Motorhome.

Prairie Flower Recreation Area COE, Johnston, Iowa

Date of Stay: October, 2013 - $10.00
Overall Rating:      

This campground, on Saylorville Lake (an Army Corps of Engineers project) had been improved since our last stay. It was great then and is even better now. We camped on the "B" loop and had a lovely view of the lake. Large cement pad (level also), excellent table and fire pit grace every site in this loop. This area is very well maintained. I got a 50% discount because of the Senior card that I got at a National Park. While there were a lot of people at this campground, the sites are large enough that you don't feel like cordwood-city. Camping here is about 30 minutes away from downtown Des Moines. Excellent shopping centers are only about 10 minutes away at the intersection of 160 and US 35. We camped at Prairie Flower Recreation Area COE in a Motorhome.

John Bryan State Park, Yellow Springs, Ohio

Date of Stay: August, 2013 - $22.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a lovely, peaceful, camping area in a large park. There are five level pads with electricity suitable for motorhomes, trailers or 5th wheels. All other sites are tent sites mostly on open grass. There are several vault toilets throughout the campground - they are not real pleasant (buggy and smelly). There is a dump station - not level - and a road is blocked when using it. No potable water at dump (though there is a spigot on another loop). We camped here several days as we took our daughter to a nearby college. This location was very convenient for that purpose. Since we're self-contained in the motorhome, I'd be happy to camp here again but I'd likely not come here as a destination vacation spot. We camped at John Bryan State Park in a Motorhome.
