About George316

We have camped since 1970, starting with a couple truck campers, progressing through 5 fifth wheels and now our 2nd travel trailer, a 36 foot Laredo. We have camped in all 48 lower states and now once again we're "Livin' The Dream". George 'n' Barb

Copake KOA, Copake, New York

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $54.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed here for 8 nights, so the nightly rate is based on our weekly rate divided by 8. The CG is located close to major state roads in the SE corner of NY at the CT and MA borders. Signage is good. Interior roads are gravel and well maintained. The campground condition is superior, clean and well kept. The owners and staff are cheerful, friendly and courteous. The store is good size. Our escort was right on when parking us. Our site was a pull thru, full h/u, gravel site. It was perfectly level and long enough for my entire rig. The utilities were excellent, 30 amp provided 120 v. The site was satellite friendly and the list of cable channels was huge. We did not use the cable, wi-fi, rec-hall or pool. During season there are activities every weekend. We were here for Wizard of Oz and hot air balloons. We would return in the future. This is one of the nicest KOA's we have ever stayed at. We camped at Copake KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Wytheville KOA, Wytheville, Virginia

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $46.00
Overall Rating:      

We originally planned to stay 1 night but extended for a 2nd and spent our second day touring around Wytheville. The office staff was cheerful and helpful. Interior roads were dirt/gravel but well maintained. There is a bowling alley on property and Hunt Brothers Pizza is available. Our site was perfectly level. The cable was excellent and we had no issues with our w/s/e. We would consider using this KOA as a base of operations for an extended stay in SW Virginia. We camped at Wytheville KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Between the campground and Wytheville and on the service road is Wytheville's Smallest Church. It is quite quaint and worth a visit.

Charlotte / Fort Mill KOA, Fort Mill, South Carolina

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $44.00
Overall Rating:      

This was an overnight stop for us at the beginning of a 45 day road trip. We had a pull-thru site that was upgraded to a deluxe (concrete pad and patio), full hook-ups and cable. I prefer to use my own Verizon jet-pack for my wi-fi. The park appeared to be clean and at Halloween it is apparently a spooky park with haunted houses etc. Check-in is kinda weird as you park in the campground and then walk back to a Valero gas station to register. No yellow shirts are seen in the campground. The gas station shares its facilities with a bar and a liquor store. There were no incidents while we were there and I would stay again for an overnight stop. We camped at Charlotte / Fort Mill KOA in a Travel Trailer.

New Green Acres RV Park , Walterboro, South Carolina

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

This campground bills themselves as the longest and widest pull-thrus east of the Mississippi. Sites are 120 feet long and set in amongst a stand of tall pine trees. Our site was perfectly level and there were no issues with our water or electric. We had a 3o amp site. Our cable was satisfactory. The campground was clean with no trash seen. The roads and sites were dirt and were in good condition. It was a good location for an overnight stop. The campground is easy to get to from the interstate and well marked. We camped at New Green Acres RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here as an overnight stop enroute to New York. Directions and signage were adequate. Interior roads were paved and sites were level and composed of dirt and grass.

Cross Winds Family Campground, Linwood, North Carolina

Date of Stay: April, 2016 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed here for two nights to allow us time to visit the North Carolina Transportation Museum in Spencer. The office staff was courteous and friendly.We were here during a spring cold spell. We had a FHU PT site and all systems worked well. This campground is "long rig" friendly and relatively level. The grounds were neatly kept with no trash lying around.

While here we ate at Yarborough's Restaurant in Lexington. That's a 4 star restaurant in our opinion. Doesn't look like much from the outside, but the food was outstanding.

The Barnyard RV Park, Lexington, South Carolina

Date of Stay: April, 2016 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

The Barnyard is a average campground with easy access from US Hwy 1 and located behind a large flea market. We had a 30A WE site, all of which operated satisfactorily. The site was plenty long for our 60 foot truck & trailer combination. We were there on a Friday, so the flea market wasn't open. I expect that the campground probably is pretty full with vendors on the weekends. The office staff was friendly and courteous. We camped at The Barnyard RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Maumelle COE, Little Rock, Arkansas

Date of Stay: April, 2016 - $13.00
Overall Rating:      

We lived in Little Rock from 1982 to 1998 and this park was our go to place while we lived here. This is our first visit back in 18 years and Maumelle park has only gotten better. We had a site right on the Arkansas River. It is a well maintained park with spacious sites and up to date facilities. The staff is like most COE parks with work campers overseeing the park. My Verizon MiFi provided a satisfactory hot spot and my site had no trees obstructing my satellite view. As we did this time, we would certainly return to Maumelle COE Park. We camped at Maumelle COE in a Travel Trailer.

Holiday Travel Park of Chattanooga, Rossville, Georgia

Date of Stay: April, 2016 - $43.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed here for 2 nights. While here we toured Chattanooga. The campground had a nice laundry and we caught up on our dirty laundry. Our site was clear enough to get satellite reception. We had a 50 amp pull thru site with plenty of room for slides, but not too much more. We camped at Holiday Travel Park of Chattanooga in a Travel Trailer.

Point Mallard Park, Decatur, Alabama

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

We were very impressed about this park. A security gate near our site made it a challenge to back a 60' combination truck & trailer into, but we did it. The sites are nicely spaced and the date we arrived competitors for a Bassmasters Elite bass tournament were also arriving and there was a lot of traffic. There was no excess noise. The city of Decatur knows how to manage a city park and campground. We camped at Point Mallard Park in a Travel Trailer.

Date of Stay: March, 2016 - $49.00
Overall Rating:      

This is the second time we have stayed at Red Gate, this time for 3 nights, the previous time for 6 nights. This is a very nice campground just a short drive from downtown Savannah. The campground is maintained in very good condition. The office staff is friendly and courteous. The grounds are kept clean with no trash lying around. Our site was satellite friendly. We had a 50A FHU site and all the facilities worked fine. The weather was cool so we didn't use the pool. We camped at Red Gate Campground & RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Jacksonville North / St. Marys KOA, Kingsland, Georgia

Date of Stay: March, 2016 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

This was our first stop on a forty day roadtrip. This campground is far above the average KOA. All sites are spacious pull-thrus. The office staff was friendly and courteous and the escort guided us to our site without incident. We had a 30A WE site that had sufficient length for our long truck and trailer. We had no issues with the electric and the water pressure was satisfactory. WiFi and cell phone service were satisfactory, as was the cable TV. The grounds were neatly kept with no trash lying around. We stayed here before I started collecting info for reviews, so some information is missing. We would definitely come back here for another visit. We camped at Jacksonville North / St. Marys KOA in a Travel Trailer.
