Clabough's Campground, Pigeon Forge, Tennessee

Date of Stay: June, 2007 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

Huge quiet campground, nice sites, nice sized concrete pads and paved roads, huge camp store and nice pools. Wish had a playground for the kids. Convenient location for vacationing, supplies and gas (convenience store on the campground). Campground has plenty of shade and is nice and flat for bicycle riding. Excellent selection of cable channels. Otherwise nothing special over any other campground in the area. Price includes 2 adults, four kids, and a pet with full hook-up including cable. Excellent value for the price. Will come back again. We camped at Clabough's Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground, Lake Buena Vista, Florida

Date of Stay: June, 2007 - $96.00
Overall Rating:

Excellent camp ground. All services and attractions (many for a fee) are better than any other camp grounds visited. Place is huge but is completely level--great for bicyle riding. Liked the meandering roads and sidewalks as an added camping experience. Disney transportation to the theme parks is flawless and very convenient. Each loop is pretty much self sufficient for immediate camper services. My site looks as if it has not been mowed in more than a few weeks. Also had to have a fellow camper move their vehicle so I can back in my 33 ft travel trailer into my site. Nothing wrong with the resort style camp ground but considering paying almost $100.00 a night, had expected the "WOW" factor to make it worth the high price. Really this camp ground is not much better looking than the fancy resort style places. I was expecting a little more for the money. Next time will look else where to see if there is a comparable camp ground for a lower price, otherwise will come back again due to the convenience of Disney transportation to the theme parks. Price included two adults, four children and a pet at a preferred site. Decided to give the high rating because all camp ground service was flawless, deducted only due to being pricey. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.

Carrabelle Beach RV Resort, Carrabelle, Florida

Date of Stay: June, 2007 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

Very nice camp ground near the beach. Host very friendly. Nice store. Wished at least the camp ground roads were paved. All of the road dirt wound up on your camp site and camper. Beach was nice and calm but would be boring for those used to ocean surfs because the beach is on the intercoastal water way. The surf is like what you would expect at a lake, not for the adventurous beach goer. Lots of campers with kids which my children befriended. Price included 6 of us (four kids), and a pet. The price is all you pay for full hookup and all camp ground services. You can see some of the ocean water from your camper. Excellent value for the money. Will definitely come again. We camped at Carrabelle Beach RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Riveredge RV Park & Log Cabin Rentals, Pigeon Forge, Tennessee

Date of Stay: May, 2007 - $63.00
Overall Rating:

Excellent paved RV resort campground. Well, not really a camper’s campground but a base for relaxation after shopping and sight seeing. On the plus side they have the cleanest hotel quality bath rooms— enough for the pickiest relatives to accept. Nice pool and an up-to-date small playground. All just enough to do for the kids. We came on a slow weekend with nothing going on in town so the main thoroughfare in the middle of the campground (15 mph speed limit) was not an issue for the safety of the kids. Nice well manicure lawns, nicely trimmed trees, and very large concrete pads so when it was raining all weekend, mud was non-existent. Sites are on the small side but adequate— ours did not have a fire ring. The host was nice enough to allow us to use the adjacent site to have a camp fire. If looking for a place to camp and enjoy nature or for the kids to have fun experiencing the busy camping experience, this is not the campground for you. If looking for just fancy place to sleep and sightsee during the day, this is the ideal place. With all of the fanciness, it is still pricey, did not even accept club discounts because to be honest this campground is in the best location between Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge right on the strip with trolley service right at your front door. Price includes eight of us including pet, full hook-up, and cable. We camped at Riveredge RV Park & Log Cabin Rentals in a Travel Trailer.

General Butler State Resort Park, Carrollton, Kentucky

Date of Stay: April, 2007 - $18.00
Overall Rating:

Excellent paved state owned park. Sites large. Needed 50ft of hose to connect water — seems like the norm. Paved level driveway with dense grade gravel dust to step into--no concrete pads. Were not able to park rig and 31 ft TT on the driveway. Seems like all driveways are of this length or shorter— a problem if towing with a 40 ft motor coach or a camper. Two playgrounds with new play equipment. Bathrooms are basic campground quality (brick and mortar) but clean. No pools near by or elsewhere in the park for lodge guests. Lake access is limited— better to drive to the picnic area to fish. Kids had fun with plenty of campers in the area but well controlled. Price included 6 of us less AAA discount. Beautiful, clean, well liked campground with rock bottom price for your money. Excellent camp ground that is not too rustic but yet not too noisy and festive either— super compromise. Will come again. We camped at General Butler State Resort Park in a Travel Trailer.

Elkhorn Campground, Frankfort, Kentucky

Date of Stay: March, 2007 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

Good paved RV resort campground. Have two playgrounds and a pool for the kids. Nice large stream to go tubing. Landscape is excellent with grass everywhere, trees well trimmed, mud not an issue in event of rain. In the process of adding concrete pads—our site had one which was nice. Most sites have paved level driveways with enough room for a large camper and vehicle. Site size is adequate. Cleanest bathrooms using quality building materials suitable for the pickiest of relatives. Helpful hosts-assisted in an RV repair issue. Nice compromise for those that want a quiet place to camp— not too noisy or festive and not too rustic, but have enough to keep the kids busy. All the comforts of home with which we had full hookup and cable. Excellent value for all the amenities that a camp ground can offer. Fee includes 8 of us and a pet less the Good Sam discount. Will come back again. We camped at Elkhorn Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Otter Creek Outdoor Recreation Area, Brandenburg, Kentucky

Date of Stay: October, 2006 - $18.00
Overall Rating:

Came in during the Halloween festivities. Was very disappointed that I could not call in for reservations, so I had to bring my camper two days earlier than I had planned to reserve a spot only to find out I was too late to get an improved site, so I had to settle for a primitive site. The park was shaded with lots of trees. Sites are gravel, not level and muddy when raining. Due to the terrain, the park became water logged after a full day's rain. Terrain is somewhat hilly but not so to prevent bicycling. Has a nice playground, bicycle trails, and a sports field. No cell phone coverage. Camp hosts were not friendly perhaps cranky. The park itself needs freshening up--looks neglected. Bath rooms were clean and maintained although cold (no heat in October). On the positive side the staff work real hard to plan for the Halloween activities (went on for three weekends)which was a hit for the kids. The Halloween experience was something to remember. The parks staff performed well for the festivities. That reason in itself is enough for us to come back next Halloween, we just have to bring our camper four to five days ahead of the weekend in order to secure an improved spot. Considering the rate (covers six people) and the Halloween memories, it is still worth it. The park no longer has a pool for the summer, but will replace it with a small water park that may be in operation in July 07. We camped at Otter Creek Outdoor Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.

Louisville South KOA, Shepherdsville, Kentucky

Date of Stay: September, 2006 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

Very nice clean campground. Staff was very friendly. Sites were adequate yet not very level. Most sites were gravel. The gravel portion of the camp site was laid large enough where in event of rain did not become muddy. Many activities for the kids. Have a large playground, nice sized swimming pool, putt putt golf, basketball, and have nice weekend activities for the kids like a movie and a magic show. Have a large hot tub for adults. Have two dump stations with lots of room to maneuver which is a plus, no waiting when in a hurry. Terrain is somewhat level which is good for bicycle riding. Lots of trees in the park but nice enough to let in sun. No problems checking in. Camp hosts provided escort service to our site. Rates are in the high side but well worth it with many activities going on at the campground pleasing to the kids. Had seven people in my party with full hook up (no cable) with the KOA discount to account for the rate. We camped at Louisville South KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park Mammoth Cave, Cave City, Kentucky

Date of Stay: August, 2006 - $37.00
Overall Rating:

We had a good time with our kids and their friends. No problems checking in. Staff was very friendly. Camp grounds are a little run down; roads are rough. Heard that the camp ground is under new management, seeing efforts to improve the operation but have a ways to go. Camp sites are not level. Our site was not close to being level. We had to use every leveling apparatus for the front and the trailer axles yet were still not level by a long shot so had to make do. The terrain was extremely hilly, not safe for kids to ride bicycles. Maneuverability was difficult but manageable entering the campsite and leaving. We were at the lowest part of the camp ground so driving up the hill was a small challenge when leaving and dumping (also at the lowest part of the camp ground). There were many planned activities for the kids that kept them busy day and night. They had a large pool, a kiddie pool, large slide (they charged $6.00 per person per day two days max—that is a lot for five kids), three nice playgrounds, putt putt golf, and basketball. Most camp sites were semi-shaded. Went to two bath houses of which both found acceptable. Biting bugs were a nuisance in the evening but not unmanageable. Daily rate included party of seven, water and electric. Rate is acceptable considering the effort in keeping the kids busy with planned activities. Can not level the camp ground but improvements on the road, efforts to level the camp sites and perhaps either take down the slide or charge a lot less will go a long ways making the camp ground highly recommended for the money. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park Mammoth Cave in a Travel Trailer.

Glendale Campground, Elizabethtown, Kentucky

Date of Stay: August, 2006 - $21.00
Overall Rating:

Very nice park. Clean, convenient and the staff was courteous. Sites were all gravel and not level. Sites got muddy in rainy weather. Semi-hilly terrain but not so to prevent bicycle riding. Nice sized fishing lake of which half with access. Has a hiking trail, playground, basketball court (not paved), and a sports field. Has a small camp store and small laundry mat. Activities occurring on the weekends during warmer camping season. Rate covers 6 people and with the helpful camp hosts, kid friendly activities, and the beauty of the campground, the park is an excellent value and is highly recommended. We camped at Glendale Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Cape Hatteras KOA, Rodanthe, North Carolina

Date of Stay: June, 2006 - $95.00
Overall Rating:

We continued on our summer vacation from New Bern, NC to Cape Hatteras, NC. The two camp grounds could not be more different. We went from a quiet value for your money New Bern KOA to this fun, busy, noisy, crowded, expensive campground. When we checked in with the weather being humid and in the 90’s, we were shocked to find the cabins had no air conditioning. Also the bugs were bad especially at night—bug spray is a must. The beach is accessed via short walk over a huge sand dune. This is not a true campground on the ocean location—can not see the ocean over the sand dunes. Campground is busy with two pools, hot tub and sauna, putt putt golf (fee), basketball court, playground, game room, and kid activities every night. The beach is excellent with nice sand as the main attraction. Cabins were weathered and small for 6 people and a pet. Cabins were spaced on top of each other next to the main noisy thoroughfare. Forget staying inside the cabin during the day due to no air, but was livable at night with the fans on. Camp store is large and well stocked. Found several bath houses acceptable. Snack bar food was excellent and reasonably priced. Daily rate based on a party of six (four kids 13-4) plus a pet with cable. Very expensive considering the condition of the cabin with no air although we love the campground location. We now own a travel trailer so we would come again if in the area. We camped in a campground cabin. We camped at Cape Hatteras KOA in a Campground Cabin.

New Bern KOA, New Bern, North Carolina

Date of Stay: June, 2006 - $50.00
Overall Rating:

Nice, quiet, lovely campground. Campground looks like it went through a major renovation because everything looks updated and new. The landscape was so nice and neat that in some instances the mowers became a nuisance but was a good trade off. The cabin we stayed in was impressively new looking. Was large, had air and accommodated our pet. Campground is small in comparison to the others we have been to but the RV sites were large including the sites for cabins. All sites seem to be level matching the terrain. Was able to erect an over the picnic table screened in canopy. Driveway was nice, large, and well kept. The cabin had a lovely front porch with a swing. The porch had enough room to leave our fishing and swimming equipment out without looking messy. We stayed during the week so missed most of the activities. Did enjoy a cooked breakfast at the enclosed recreation area, and watched a country band. Store was well stocked with essentials yet was short of a lot of grocery type items. Had a nice dimly lighted pier and was able to see the sun set. Waterway was absolutely beautiful. The pier was great for fishing. Has a nice well manicured fish and pitch lake where the kids was able to catch real fish. Both bathrooms were the cleanest of which one is hotel quality. Had a nice sized pool, basketball with adjustable goal for smaller kids (not paved), volley ball court, and a playground. Enjoyed on site camp fires. The cabins are well shaded whereas the RV sites were lightly shaded overall. Called for reservations but when checking in had complications. We were a party of six with a pet. The pet friendly cabins only could accommodate four. The owners were flexible enough to allow us to stay in a pet friendly cabin for four otherwise the dog had to be put up during our stay—nice compromise. Due to personal business issue I had to leave one day early, the staff was generous enough to refund one day’s stay. It seems that there were more seniors there than expected. The fact my kids did not find many kids to play with was not the fault of the campground. Overall the staff was very nice and helpful. Rate includes a party of six, cable, and a pet less KOA discount which was an excellent value. We camped at New Bern KOA in a Campground Cabin.
