Stony Brook Recreation and Camping, Hanover, Maine

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $21.00
Overall Rating:      

We paid $21.25 a night, which was the Passport Rate of $19.50 plus tax. First impression here was that the place is a bit rough around the edges. But we were pleasantly surprised once we pulled into our site and setup. Sites 41 thru 58 are in an open area and are mostly level pull thru sites with 50 amp full hookups and cable. The cable lineup was pretty limited which was nice as we did not have to scroll thru all the normal crap you get. No ESPN, but they did have NESN and the weather channel. The wifi was so so, at times the connection kept dropping making it unusable. But 2 of our 3 mornings here it was ok. The site was mostly gravel with a high sand content, so it got a bit messy after it raind. It also had a nice picnic table with some hanging flowers on one end. Interior roads are rough gravel, but we had no problems getting in or out. The office doubles as variety store and also serves food at very reasonable prices. We would gladly come back next time we are in the area. We camped at Stony Brook Recreation and Camping in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Sunday River Brewing is just down the street and has several good beers. We also had a pizza there one night and a calzone on our second stop. More than enough for the two of us both times and we took almost half of them home. It is a bit pricey, $5 pints and $15 for the calzone, but that's pretty much to be expected in ski country. Gorham, NH is about a 30 minute drive away on US-2 and has much more options, a State Liquor store, Walmart, etc.

Elm River RV Park, Glenholme, Nova Scotia

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

We paid $50 per night for a really, really short pull thru. We could not actually pull into it, we needed to back up first. Site was more suitable for something small, like a class B or a small C. We had called a couple of days before our stay and probably got the last available site. Too bad the place wasn't full as we would have stayed somewhere else. Our site, site #1, was without a doubt the worst site here. They practice dust control, but only on the road coming into and a bit past the office. Once you go around back to where the sites begin, dust control ends. We were in the very first site you reach. The road splits here and goes both behind and in front of this row of sites. There is also a side road right across from us. As a result we were in a dust bowl as traffic was passing in all directions. It was very busy here, this RV park is also a caravan stop. One arrived right after we did and we were covered in dust within minutes. A lot of traffic was generated by workers zipping back and forth to park the caravan. Some of the larger RV's were coming very close to us making the turn in front of us. You could see where the grass was worn down by RV's that could not make the tight turn. . It was good that we were charged extra for 50 amps, we could not open windows because of the dust and we had to run our AC's non stop. The water pressure was bad and we needed to use our pump to take showers. Electric connection was old and worn, but the voltage was ok. We had 1 OTA TV station. We did not pay for the wifi, which was good as we were here during the big phone outage that hit this part of Canada. They do have some nice sites here, but it looked like the caravans got them. Not a place we would return to and were happy to leave the place. We camped at Elm River RV Park in a Motorhome.

Linwood Harbour Campground, Linwood, Nova Scotia

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $41.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a very nice little RV park located on a side hill that slopes down to the harbor. We paid $51 Canadian per night for a 50 amp FHU pull thru site with wifi. We were greeted upon arrival and led to the site which had been recently mowed and it also had a nice new picnic table. We had a nice view of the water from our site. One thing we noticed was a worker watering the road to keep the dust down. Something a lot of other parks should do more of. They also seemed to do the mowing when sites were empty. This park was very well run and our stay was very enjoyable here so we gave it higher rating. The wifi did drop a couple of times, but it was mostly very good during our 3 day stay. There is a bit of road noise from nearby 104 at night. The harbor seemed to act somewhat like a megaphone. No OTA TV reception. We camped at Linwood Harbour Campground in a Motorhome.

It is a full day trip up to Cape Breton Highlands NP, but worth the ride. Lots of road work going on in the park this summer. Guysbourgh is a fairly short drive down Rte 16 and is a nice little town on the harbor. We stopped at the Rare Bird Pub for a couple of their beers. They have a nice deck out back that overlooks the harbor which had one of the tall ships in it that had just left Halifax.

South Cove Camping & Golf, Shediac, New Brunswick

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $41.00
Overall Rating:      

We paid $51.75 Canadian (appx. $41 US) for a 50 amp FHU pull thru site. The site itself was ok, decent sized with a good gravel base. However, this place does not get cleaned or picked up very often. Fire ring was full of garbage and there was lots of litter all over. The grass was long overdue for mowing, but it had mostly burned out so it was not a problem. We were in the row of pull thru sites facing a row of back in sites. The road in between is very narrow, which created a lot of problems for people trying to back in to the sites across from us. We had a couple of OTA stations, only 1 gave a dependable signal. The wifi was not bad most of the time. Shediac is mostly a French speaking town and many of the local business signs are in French only. People in the area were not very friendly. We are not likely to return to this area. We camped at South Cove Camping & Golf in a Motorhome.

Moncton is only a 15 - 20 minute drive away. The Pump House Brewery has several good beers and the food was good. It did get very busy at times. Just down the road is the Bore View Park, a good spot for seeing a Tidal Bore is you have not seen one. We also took a day trip to the Hopewell Rocks. While we were waiting for the tide to go from from low to high (appx. 6 hours), we took a ride to Alma. A very nice small town with a good brewery

Rockwood Park, Saint John, New Brunswick

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $32.00
Overall Rating:      

We paid $40 Canadian which converted to appx. $32 US at the time of our stay. We had a site in a row of nice wide level pull thru's. All hookups were on the correct side for us. As mentioned, many sites may share electric posts. These were mostly reserved for caravans. Most sites are very level, but there are a few back in sites around the perimeter that have some grade. We were able to get 1 OTA TV station, but only on our smaller bedroom TV. The signal was not strong enough for a good picture on big TV in the main living area. The wifi could really bog down when a caravan was getting assembled. But was pretty good after they left. If leaving on north bound NB-1, take a left out of the park and the right exit loop for rte 100 and immediately take right loop back onto the same road (Crowne), entrance ramp to CA-1 N is right there. We camped at Rockwood Park in a Motorhome.

Pumpkin Patch RV Resort, Hermon, Maine

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a very nice RV Park, not really a Resort. People and Work Campers are very friendly. Staff is on top of things and are efficient. We paid the monthly rate of $745 for a 50 amp FHU pull thru site with cable. The cable lineup was average. They now have propane available and we filled up at $2.65 a gallon. Site was a gravel / dirt and mostly level with back to front slope, the actual pad area was fairly level. Sites are very good sized here. The wifi varied with the time of day. It could really bog down at times. But early in the am I found it to be very good. The only negitive here was the roads could be very dusty at times. Other than that we had a very nice stay and would return again. We camped at Pumpkin Patch RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Eagles Nest in Brewer has the best lobster roll of the many we had during our 5 weeks in Maine. Sea Dog has the best Happy Hour, 3 - 6, 7 days a week at the bars only. Their own brews are very good. For some outstanding Fish n Chips head up to Woodman's in Orono. The Black Bear Brewery is also worth a stop there.

Silver Springs Campground and Cottages, Saco, Maine

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $33.00
Overall Rating:      

We paid the Passport America rate of $30 plus 9% Maine tax. Our first impression pulling in here was so, so. But once we backed into our site we were pleasantly pleased with it. While the site was somewhat narrow, we had a large open grass area behind us and then the pool. A very nice level site. The hookups all worked, but the post holding the water sillcock extended way above it. This prevented using a splinter first. Wifi as mentioned was somewhat on the slow side. Overall we had a nice 5 day stay and would return. We camped at Silver Springs Campground and Cottages in a Motorhome.

Best bet for a Lobster Roll is at Pines Seafood on US-1 a couple of miles north. The Run of the Mill Brewery also has good food and some nice beers to choose from. We were extremely disappointed with the Lobster Roll we were served at the Rising Tide restaurant.

Wakeda Campground, Hampton Falls, New Hampshire

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

We paid the Passport America rate of $25 for a 50 amp FHU level back in site. Site was a gravel site heavily shaded with large pine and hardwood trees. So we had lots of stuff dropping onto the RV during our 6 night stay. Overall this is a very nice campground in the woods. But they do call this "Camping in the Pines". As it was late spring, we had lots of sap on both our 1 year old MH and toad. They do have some sites that are not under pines. If we return, we will definitively ask for one. They have a wifi hotspot, but very limited hours during our stay so we never used it. OTA TV was barely fair with only ION and PBS stations. Verizon cell and broadband both very good. We camped at Wakeda Campground in a Motorhome.

The 401 Tavern on US-1 in Hampton has daily HH 2-5 weekdays and the bar food specials were very good. We went back a couple of times. Just north of 27 also on US-1 is a combination Sports Bar, Pizza place (The Oven) and Brewery. The HH there was 7 days a week from 2-5. But ask your server first, most are new did not know about it. Their beers are $3 each during HH.

Fishermen's State Park and Campground, Narragansett, Rhode Island

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

We paid the RI non-resident fee of $35 and $25 per night plus the $9 reservation fee (3 times). This SP has had some major improvements made a couple of years ago. The utilities in Areas 1 and 2 were upgraded with sewer being added to Area 2. These two areas are $35 per night. Area 4 is water and electric only and remains fairly rustic, but has some nice large private sites. These sites are $25 per night. Area 3 is canvas only for tenters and small popup units. Areas 2, 3 & 4 have bath houses, Area 1 does not. Sites vary in both size and levelness at this SP. Also some sites have hedges that may be very close to the camping pad which may create an issue with slide outs. Overall one of the nicer SP's we have stayed in. Outstanding location and very close to the Block Island ferry. This CG gets fully booked during the summer months as most people make their resevation months in advance. We booked 5 months early and were only able to get 4 nights in Area 1, then 4 nights in Area 4 and then only 2 more nights in Area 1. OTA TV varied, so so in our first site in Area 1 next to the old fort. It was much better in Area 4. Verizon cell and broadband both very good. We camped at Fishermen's State Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

Charlestown Breachway, Charlestown, Rhode Island

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

One change since our last review here is that the sites are now marked at the sides. So you can setup anywhere between the markers as long as you do not go past them. The old rule was to center your camping unit on the rock with the site number on it. This created problems when a MH was pulled in next to a 5th / trailer that was backed in. You would be door to door and very close. The markers allow the units to create some separation. But it can still be really tight here. We camped at Charlestown Breachway in a Motorhome.

Hickory Ridge Campground, Greene, Rhode Island

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $45.00
Overall Rating:      

Nighly rate is $45, but they charged an extra $10 for the Memorial Holiday weekend. This is a older campground with dated facilities. But the electric, water, and sewer were adequate. The campground has two sections, one to the right of the entrance road and the other to the left. The sites to the right are mostly seasonal and permanents. The roads here are real rough with large boulder tops that you drive over. There are also a lot of tree limbs to watch out for. The left side of the campground looked to be the better option. Most of the sites there were in a large field. Sites in both sections were mostly level, call them lumpy. But we had no problem leveling after taking time to position our MH. They have WiFi, but we were unable to connect to it from our site. OTA TV and Verizon cell were both good here. We camped at Hickory Ridge Campground in a Motorhome.

Overall Rating:      

We paid the senior rate for our mid-week stay just before Memorial Day. It was very quiet and we had empty sites on both sides of us for our 3 day stay. Electric was very good, water pressure a bit low so we just used our pump. We had a lot of rain while we were there, so we did not sit outside or do any hiking. OTA TV was poor, at night we picked up ION and another PBS type station. Verizon cell and broadband both very good. Overall a nice quiet CG. We camped at West Thompson Lake COE in a Motorhome.

Dingmans Campground, Dingmans Ferry, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $22.00
Overall Rating:      

We paid the senior rate of $22 for a 50 amp back in with water. Sites are gravel, fairly level, and are angled out in random order. Some angle one way and others the opposite way. Narrow interior roads make for a possible hard time to get setup. We had no OTA TV or cell reception here. Not a big rig friendly place, but doable for a 40 footer. There is a small tear drop shaped loop within a much larger loop. This small loop has a couple of nice sites and also the dump station. We did not use the dump station. It is hard to access the dump station from many of the sites in the small loop because of its tear drop shape. We camped at Dingmans Campground in a Motorhome.

We came in for a night or two and spent three. They have a wi-fi hotspot in a common room which has the laundry, book swap and some games. OTA TV and cell reception were both very good.

Overall Rating:      

Two different areas with hookups. We were in the 'across the road on the hill' area. We had lots of empty sites on both sides of us. This area only had 30 amp outlets with both water and sewer. The police referred to in an earlier post have a 'mobile booking unit' that they bring here. So we did see lots of activity which my wife enjoyed watching. Plus, it made the area very secure. Nothing fancy but a great base for visiting the city. We camped at The Fairgrounds Nashville in a Motorhome.
