Philadelphia South KOA (formerly Timberlane Campground), Clarksboro, New Jersey

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $54.00
Overall Rating:      

We used this park for a one night stopover so we did not see much. The site we had was at the front of the park and was very tight. The hookups were all okay and in the right place. Site was level and gravel. The worst were the roads getting in and out, very tight turns and lots of parked trucks and cars. Might stay again after the improvements are completed just to see if they get better. We camped at Philadelphia South KOA (formerly Timberlane Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

Harpers Ferry / Civil War Battlefields KOA, Harpers Ferry, West Virginia

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $54.00
Overall Rating:      

This park is very large but as others have said the sites are small, on hills, and the roads are tight. Lots of activities for kids. Used the bathroom once and did not return, it was filthy. Back side of campground has full timers. We were in the big rig area and had no trees at all which would be tough in the summer. This is another campground where the sewer connection is about 8 inches above the ground making it hard to dump. We had a wifi repeater right next to us but wifi was still slow. Cable was snowy most of the time. For the price we expected better. Probably would stay elsewhere next time. We camped at Harpers Ferry / Civil War Battlefields KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Luray, Luray, Virginia

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $80.00
Overall Rating:      

This price was for a holiday weekend which we found very high for what you get. No cable and even though they advertise wifi and we could connect we could not get to the internet or get emails. Park is great for kids though. Sites are tight and our neighbors fire pit was very close to our bedroom. The grass around the pit caught fire several times which made us nervous. Although it is a nice park we would probably look for something different because of the price. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Luray in a Fifth Wheel.

Pipestem Resort State Park, Pipestem, West Virginia

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $34.00
Overall Rating:      

This campground is part of a much larger state park. The campground is kind of basic but still a good choice. The sites are small for large RV's and we had to work to get into our site because of the camper in front of our site. The electric hookup is on the wrong side of the RV so you have to run the wire under the camper and walk over it to get into the RV. Our site was right along the road length wise so we had a lot of campground traffic going by. All in all still a nice campground. No wifi or cable but we did get the local OTA channels. We would stay again but look for another site. We camped at Pipestem Resort State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Cumberland Gap National Historic Park / Wilderness Road Campground, Ewing, Virginia

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $10.00
Overall Rating:      

Great park if you can get one of the sites that has electric. Many of the sites are quite sloped. It was tough to get the camper level. Our site was right across from the bathroom which was convienent. Other than the slope of the sites they are very nice and roomy. Get there early if you want an electric site. We would definitely stay again. We camped at Cumberland Gap National Historic Park / Wilderness Road Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Maple Hill RV Campground, Jamestown, Tennessee

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

Small but very nice campground. Owners live onsite and were very helpful and accommadating. We booked in Dec under the previous owner who never passed on our reservation to the new owner. Luckily he had room and honored the booking. Site was level and well maintained. Services worked great, wifi and cable included. Very little shade but it was cooler during the day so no problem. Close to main road but very little road noise. Would stay again. Only issue could be the roads coming in and out, kind of narrow. We camped at Maple Hill RV Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Clean orderly park. Staff and service very good. All sites level with grass and nice plant beds everywhere. Not much shade but still very nice. Close to the highway which is both good and bad. Also close to the train tracks. Noise did not bother us. We would definitely stay again. We camped at Cave Country RV Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Really nice park with lots to do. Only problem is the narrow roads and sloped sites. Owners and staff are very friendly and helpful. We chose a site that was pretty level so we did not have a problem with leveling. All services worked great. Quiet and well shaded. Would definitely stay again.

Big Springs RV Camp, Van Buren, Missouri

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

Very friendly owners. The park is recovering from major flooding this past April. All new hookups installed. Cable and wifi worked great. The grounds do not look like they had 40 feet of flood water. The seasonal campers are all relatively new and neat. Sites with tree cover and some without. Gravel parking with plenty of space. River sites very nice but are backins. We would stay again if in the area. We camped at Big Springs RV Camp in a Fifth Wheel.

Sundermeier RV Park, Saint Charles, Missouri

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $53.00
Overall Rating:      

Very clean campground. Full cement pads large enough for rv and truck and sitting outside. No trees to speak of for shade. Planes and trains all day but you get use to them. FHU sites all worked well. The campground is right next to a housing area and the Katy trail. Only a mile to downtown St Charles. For what you get at the campground it is kind of pricy but still a nice park. We would stay again. We camped at Sundermeier RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We went to St Louis for the day and made the mistake of parking on a street close to the Old Courthouse that was less traveled. Someone broke our back window and stole an empty backback and our National Park Passport folio. Neither worth any value to them. Park in a well traveled area, even if it is expensive.

Nice park in remote area but be ready for aircraft noise and train whistles all day. We are used to the noise so it did not bother us. Our site was narrow but had lots of fir trees shade. Neighbors are very close. Site was long enough for us. Wifi and cable were very good. The rest of the park had all the KOA type stuff. We would stay again.

Basswood Resort, Platte City, Missouri

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $44.00
Overall Rating:      

There are several areas in this park. The ones close to the entrance seem to be hilly with lots of trees. The next are all back-ins that are very tight and look like full timers. The next is way in the back with pull-thrus. These are bigger and quite nice. The rest rooms were spotless. The site we had was great, fully paved and woods on our door side. This site is normally a road that they use as a site sometimes. We would stay again. We camped at Basswood Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

The road in is gravel and dusty but once you reach the campground entrance it looks park like. We had a deluxe pull through site that had plenty of room and was very nice. Site was situated so we got shade from out camper in the afternoon, very nice. Lots of full time residents but sites were well maintained. Lots for kids to do but still quiet at night. We would definitely stay again. We camped at Topeka / Capital City KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Spring Lake RV Resort, Halstead, Kansas

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

We stopped one night on our way to Topeka and I agree with the last reviewer. I do not see how this park can get such high reviews. Although the staff is friendly the park really needs some major work. Most of the campers were full time that have way to much on their sites. Some clean up is in order that would help improve the park visibly. The pond needs some water movement, it was totally covered with a green slime. There are two other ponds that are very close to the main pond and campsites that are sewage ponds. They did not smell but they seem a little to close for comfort. Our site was sloped so we had to prop up to middle of the RV but was good side to side. We would probably look for another campground if in the area again. We camped at Spring Lake RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice clean park. It is on a dead end street close to the highway but any noise did not bother us. Could be dusty if the wind was stronger. Busy park for one night stays as it is close to main roads. Helpful staff and good services. WiFi was not that good but tons of cable stations. Not much shade anywhere in the park, the trees are really small. We had an end site that had lots of grass and space. We would stay again. We camped at WaKeeney KOA in a Fifth Wheel.
