Artillery Ridge Campground, Gettysburg, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $42.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed 7 Nights which included Labor Day Monday. We obtained 4 nights with PA discount and 3 nights with GS discount. Total paid was $296.73 or $42.39/avg. You will be asked to provide your PA and GS member # along with expiration date so be prepared. Reservation process was easy. Check-in was fast and efficient. The staff in the office was great about helping us to get the lowest cost combination. Our site was 406 in the newer section. It was a very long pull-through with FHU and clear sky for satellite signal. All hook-ups worked perfectly. Verizon cell was ok. Verizon Mifi wasn't. Fortunately the park wifi was excellent. We had serious rain but no standing water. Trees could use some trimming along the interior roads. Over Labor Day weekend, the park was very full with lots of families. There were lots of activities for kids and they seemed to be having plenty of fun. We were thrilled with location of the park being so close to the battlefield. We stayed busy exploring so didn't spend much time in the campground. At check-in we were given free passes for 3 in-town attractions. We did two of them and particularly enjoyed the diorama. If we return to the area, we would be happy to stay here again. We camped at Artillery Ridge Campground in a Motorhome.

Gettysburg Visitor Center is fabulous. One ticket gets you a film, cyclorama (very cool) and wonderful museum which has (among other things) short videos pertaining to each day of the battle plus various other topics. It's extremely well done. Allow at least 5 hours. If you run out of time, the staff will let you back in another day if you ask nicely. Attend ranger-led activities/talks. They're free and informative. Our fav activity was the guided battlefield tour on bike from Gettsybike.

Liberty Harbor RV Park, Jersey City, New Jersey

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $86.00
Overall Rating:      

It's $95/night. Stay 6 nights, get one night free. 7% tax. We paid $914.85 for 10 nights or $91.48 avg. Bathrooms/showers weren't horrible. They had hot water, good water pressure and curtained changing area for each shower with hooks and bench. Laundry area has 6 each new, clean washers/dryers. Each machine digitally displays time remaining. The dump station wasn't gross - it's a basic dump station. Spaces are extremely tight and many are not level. We didn't have power issues. We never could log in to wifi even when the office gave us a different password. Honey wagon equipment is broken with no immediate plans to fix/replace it. There is a lot of construction nearby with associated noise. No recycling in park. Having said all that, we enjoyed our time at Liberty Harbor. We could see the Statue of Liberty through our windshield which we thought was pretty cool. It's super easy to get to wherever you want to go. The office provides excellent information (transit/maps/area highlights/etc) at check-in. The staff was super helpful with our myriad of questions through out our stay. We obtained DirecTV, Verizon cell and Verizon Mifi signals. A few thoughts. 1. We came and left via the I-78. It's a straight forward approach/departure and you won't have low overpasses. Follow the directions on the park website. 2. Don't let public transit intimidate you. It's safe, clean, cheap and efficient. If you have questions, you will find locals extremely friendly and helpful. Just ask! 3. As for site selection - there is one site that is pretty sweet if you can fit (C02). Otherwise it's tight tight tight everywhere. There is extremely bright lighting plus trash cans near C01, C03, B02, B04, B01, B03, A02, A04 so I personally would avoid them. Sites A20, A22 are near the dump station so I'd avoid those for sure. We were in B20. The dry site next to us (B22) was empty 8 of 10 nights. We would definitely stay here again. There's so much to do!! We camped at Liberty Harbor RV Park in a Motorhome.

Allow sufficient time for Ellis Island Museum which tells a great story. 9-11 Museum/Memorial is emotional but excellent. Check out Rockefeller Center observation deck for amazing views. Attend a Broadway play. We saw Bandstand - even the husband liked it! Visit the tv-famous Carlo's Bakery in Hoboken, NJ, for delicious pastries. Ride bikes in Central Park. You can rent bikes there or take your own via ferry then ride Hudson River Greenway to Central Park.

Seaport RV Resort, Old Mystic, Connecticut

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $55.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed 7 nights. Paid $384 total for an average of $54.86/night. No tax. Reservation process was easy. They collected a 50% deposit upfront with the balance due at check in. I can't swear to it but I believe I was told we would have full hook-ups. Come to find out they don't have sewer but offer free honey wagon service every three days (not on departure day). They also have a very accessible dump station. Check-in was fast and efficient. Allowed us to receive packages which we appreciated. Park wifi was hit or miss. Received DirecTV sat signal. Verizon cell and Verizon Mifi were weak but functional. There were a few quirky things about this park. First - the entrance has a somewhat narrow gate. They habitually park a golf cart in front of the office which prevents you from lining up straight to pass through the gate. Furthermore there is a planter just inside the gate on the right side that you risk hitting because you're angling to the right to avoid the golf cart. The planter is low to the ground so you can't see it. Argh. Second - one morning I was using their shower at approx 8:30am. A cleaning lady called out to me telling me she needed to clean and for me to go to the other bathhouse (during my shower?!). Third - we had significant power issues. It was warm (not crazy hot) and the park was somewhat full (weekend). We noticed our a/c stopped working. Fortunately we were home. We checked and saw our voltage was low. We called the office. A very nice gentleman came promptly and explained their power company only provides a certain power level and that was that. He suggested we remove our surge protector and that would solve the problem. Uh - No - Not an option. We have a cat and obviously won't leave the coach if there is a climate control issue. As such, we had to forfeit plans and stay home one day in order to monitor the situation. For $55/night that's frustrating and unacceptable. If we return to Mystic, we will look for another place to stay. We camped at Seaport RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We received good service for a slide issue from Arlington RV approx 30 miles North off I95. We scheduled the appt a month in advance. Downtown Mystic is charming especially the drawbridge. Mystic Pizza has ok pizza but it was fun to eat there. Nuclear Submarine Museum and Coast Guard Academy/Museum are free and and wonderful. We had hoped Mystic Seaport would be more like Colonial Williamsburg with lots of period characters and activities but it wasn't so a little disappointing.

Atlantic Oaks Campground, Eastham, Massachusetts

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $67.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed 7 nights. Rate was $74/night. Received 10% discount for staying 5 or more nights. Online reservation fee was $3.50. Total cost for the week was $469.70 for an average $67/night. Reservation process was simple. Check-in was fast and efficient. Staff was friendly. All hook-ups functioned correctly. Verizon cell and Verizon Mifi worked well. We couldn't get a DirecTV signal from our roof mounted dish but did find it using our remote dish. There are a lot of oak trees! Other reviewers have done a good job describing this campground. Agree roads are a bit bumpy and sites are a bit unlevel but all is manageable. Certain turns can be tricky for big rigs so take your time. Suggest unhooking/re-hooking toad at entrance area for maximum flexibility. The campground was full during our stay so recommend advance reservations during peak period. The location mid-Cape was excellent. It's close to everything including beaches, lighthouses, Cape Cod Rail Trail, National Seashore, Wildlife Refuge, Ptown and Hyannis. The Superette (small grocery market) is nearby and decently stocked. There are three gas stations within a few miles. The husband had to fly home for an emergency family situation. We were relieved to discover flying in/out of the Ptown airport was easy and convenient (but not cheap). We liked the campground and especially its location. We would certainly consider staying again when visiting the Cape. We camped at Atlantic Oaks Campground in a Motorhome.

Love Love Love the Cape Cod Rail Trail (CCRT). Go North about 5 miles to the end and turn left to find the PB Boulangerie which has delicious pastries and a lovely outdoor area. Arnold's is a quick walk South on the CCRT. They only take cash. If you go for dinner, take a flashlight for the walk back. The trail is dark after dark! Lots to explore including many Ranger-led activities at the National Seashore.

Winter Island Park Campground, Salem, Massachusetts

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $50.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed 9 nights. We had site 43 (field) for 2 nights at $47/night then moved to site 15 (waterfront) for 7 nights at $50/night. It was two separate reservations. Each reservation charged a $3.50 transaction fee. There's something "funny" about reservations at this campground. Apparently there is one policy for regular folks and another policy for "friends of the park manager. We made a 9 night reservation for site 15 on ReserveAmerica. The system completed our transaction and took our money. Later that day, we received a call from ReserveAmerica canceling our transaction. They simply refunded our money and said our site was already promised to someone else. I put up a fuss but ReserveAmerica wouldn't budge. Ultimately we were forced to reserve two sites for our 9 day stay - neither site was the one we initially reserved. When we arrived at the campground, we were told first hand by "friends of the manager" that he had set aside site 15 (and other waterfront sites) for that weekend for his friends. There's also something "funny" about honey wagon service. When we inquired, the manager suggested calling United Site Services (USS) for possible honey wagon service. USS said it does not regularly visit Winter Island but would provide service for $140. Ouch. We did not request service. A day later we saw a USS truck dumping our neighbor. In speaking with the neighbor, they said they pay $30 (if I recall correctly) and they get dumped weekly. BUT --- even with all the funny business --- we really liked Winter Island. The field area isn't awful. The waterfront site was fabulous. We pulled nose-in and had a fabulous view through our windshield. The showers aren't horrible and the cleaning lady was very sweet. Hook-ups worked well. Received solid Verizon cell, Verizon mifi and DirecTV signals. Agree big rigs should avoid 16B,16C,16D. Boat launch wasn't too noisy for us. We enjoyed the park and its proximity to Salem and Boston. We would gladly stay again. We camped at Winter Island Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Wonderful tour of the House of Seven Gables includes a good history lesson of Salem. Peabody Museum is overpriced and overrated. Suggest walking tour with Bewitched After Dark to learn about the witch trials. If your time is limited, take the trolley tour ($19/person) for a good overview of Salem. Loved the convenient ferry to/from Boston. Uber fare from Fenway one evening was $49.

Paradise Park Resort Campground, Old Orchard Beach, Maine

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $70.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed 7 nights. There is no weekly rate. Paid $70/night plus 9% tax so total cost was $76.30/night. Reservation process was easy. Check in was efficient and included an escort to the site (much appreciated because it's a big place). All hook-ups worked perfectly. We were able to obtain DirecTV, Verizon cell and Verizon mifi signals. We were in site #213 which has a pedestrian walkway on the driver's side and I do mean "next to it". Folks walk by very close to your windows. We had a decent amount of space on our passenger side but the land was a combination of dirt, dead grass and almost dead grass. The pond is pretty. We even saw Mama Ducks with her teenagers. The overall campground is generally clean and well organized. We visited during PEAK season. The park was completely full with tons of children. Unsupervised kids were riding bikes, scooters, skateboards, etc. with reckless abandon completely unconcerned with vehicles. Having said that, our neighbors were friendly and children were relatively quiet and well-behaved (not their fault their parents didn't monitor them on the interior streets). Pool areas were very busy with bodies nearly touching in the spa. We didn't use it but saw the beach shuttle running regularly. Staff was friendly and helpful. They gave us permission to wash our rig and car between 10am-4pm (not to disrupt water pressure for others). They also gave us great tips and a map for riding the nearby Eastern Trail bike path. Bottom line - we would consider staying here again but would evaluate all options first and we'd try to avoid peak season. If you love the beach and all that OOB offers (pier, restaurants, shops, carnival rides, huge candy store, etc.) and/or if you have kids, you're sure to enjoy the park and love the location. We camped at Paradise Park Resort Campground in a Motorhome.

While there, check out Liberty Ship Memorial which talks about Portland's shipbuilding contribution during WW2. Kennebunkport is a 20 mile drive. You can walk or shuttle from town to a lookout point from which you can see the Bush compound, Walker's Point.

Hadley's Point Campground, Bar Harbor, Maine

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

If you pay for 6 nights, you get the 7th free. We stayed 8 nights for $322 plus 9% tax for a total of $351 or $44/night. We chose the A section in order to get 50 amp plus water (no sewer). You can pay $5/day for honey wagon service or we opted to pay as needed at $12/dump. You do not need to be home when they come by. The reservation process was easy and check-in was efficient. A nice gentleman guided us to our site and helped us back in. We had plenty of space to park our toad beside our motorhome. CG WiFi was spotty. Verizon cell and Verizon data worked well. We were able to obtain DirecTV satellite signal. The campground really quiets down at night. Recycling available for aluminum cans and glass bottles. Pool was warm and busy with kids. This is a very large property with RV sites, tents, cabins, playgrounds and big, open, grassy play areas. There's something for everyone. It's a busy place. There is a FREE bus service which is super convenient and easy to use. Acadia and Bar Harbor are just a quick ride away. One thing about Section A is that the buses go by your site twice per half hour but they are propane powered and not too noisy or polluting. We didn't mind it but I can imagine some people might not be too thrilled. The campground was willing to receive shipments for us and even delivered them to our site. Staff and neighbors were very friendly and everyone had great tourist advice for us. The church service is in an open field. Just bring a chair or towel to sit on. We met some great folks there. We enjoyed our stay here and would love to stay again one day. We camped at Hadley's Point Campground in a Motorhome.

You won't regret getting up for sunrise on top of Cadillac Mountain. NPS closes the road once the parking lot fills up so go early. Suggest leaving the CG 1 hour and 45 minutes prior to sunrise to be sure you get in. We had a nice meal at Stewman's on the water in Bar Harbor. Cycle or walk the Carriage Roads. Enjoy popovers at Jordan Pond. Received excellent care from Acadia Veterinary Hospital on a same day emergency visit.

Limehurst Lake Campground, Williamstown, Vermont

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $39.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed for 7 nights. If you pay for 6, you get the 7th free. We opted to pay $5 extra per night for a/c. Apparently electric is super expensive in Vermont! Tax is 6%. All in, we paid $321 for the week or $46/night including a/c and tax. We also gave $10 cash deposit for the gate card and returned it for our deposit prior to leaving. No problem. The trailer park prior to arriving at the entrance to the campground did not concern us nor did the small hill and turn immediately after the entry gate. This park is big rig friendly. Sites are spacious and grassy (but the ground is solid under the grass and did not get soggy with rain). All hookups worked perfectly. We had clear sky for DirecTV signal. Verizon cell was a bit moody. It seemed to work better when standing outside. Verizon data was OK. CG WiFi was better than most. There is single stream recycling. Owners are friendly and have a little campground store at the office. The lake is pretty. We felt this CG was in a good location to get to all of the sites we wanted to visit including Montpelier, Stowe, Camel's Hump, Cabot and Lamoille Valley Rail Trail. If we returned to the area, we would evaluate all options first but would definitely consider staying here again. We camped at Limehurst Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

There is a well-stocked Dollar General 2 miles away. Check out the awesome Lamoille Valley Rail Trail for cycling (and they're expanding it!). Don't let driving distances dissuade you from going to various attractions. Vermont doesn't have traffic (none that we encountered) and the scenery is spectacular. Cabot Creamery has a ton of free samples making the tour a good value. You must try a yummy maple creamee (soft serve ice cream).

Barber Homestead Park, Westport, New York

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $38.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed 6 nights and paid $38/night. No tax. If you pay for 6 nights, you get the 7th free but unfortunately we couldn't stay the full 7 nights. Reservation process was easy and check-in efficient. We were led to our site, which was level and spacious. We recommend to unhook your toad by the office. All hookups worked perfectly. WiFi was better than most campgrounds. Verizon cell and Verizon data service worked well. We had a clear sky for DirecTV signal. We found this campground to be a slice of heaven. The owners are lovely. There are many seasonals. By "seasonal", I'm referring to folks who live within a few hours and keep a camper here for use as a summer home. All campers are clean and well-kept, including pretty flowers and landscaping. Everyone is super friendly and helpful. There is a large grassy area for volleyball, badminton, etc (equipment is free to use). We enjoyed the beautiful grounds and our partial view of Lake Champlain. Barber Homestead was exactly what we needed at exactly the right time. We're so glad to have discovered it and would love to return one day (and next time we'll stay much longer!). Highly recommend. We camped at Barber Homestead Park in a Motorhome.

Montreal South KOA, St. Philippe de Laprairie, Quebec

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $50.00
Overall Rating:      

We paid for 8 nights and got a weekly discount for $459 CDN plus 15% tax for a total of $528 CDN. Converting at $1CDN equals 75 cents USD. Average nightly rate $50 USD includes tax. This is a tough park to rate. Montreal had a hugely rainy spring season and the park reflected that. It rained while we were there and our power post was in 6 inches of standing water. On the second day, our power stopped working. Staff offered to change our site. We saw this happen to our next door neighbor the day before so we lacked confidence that a different site would be a solution. We decided leave early instead. KOA staff was very understanding and refunded us appropriately, which we really appreciated. As for additional park details, other reviewers are correct. Interior roads are a bit tight with potholes but they are do-able for big rigs. We unhooked our toad in the entrance area. There are trees which might affect satellite signal although we received satellite in our site of E-10. The outside road is a two lane highway with zero shoulder. You wouldn't want to walk or run out there. We found Quebec drivers to drive aggressively fast - uncomfortably so. Campground WiFi did not work for us. The office blamed it on the fact that we have Apple products (seriously?!). Verizon cell was good for voice but slow for data when roaming. If we return to Montreal, we'd evaluate all RV park options before making a final decision. However, we would consider staying here again. We camped at Montreal South KOA in a Motorhome.

Costco and Walmart are a few miles away. Costco tip for Americans: Canadian Costco only accepts MasterCard - not Visa and not Amex. They will take US cash. Toll bridge accepted a credit card but recommend to get Canadian cash ahead of time. CG isn't "close" to Montreal. You have to drive to metro station (20 minutes), figure out Metro (not simple and station is old, dark and dreary) then ride train which looks ancient. Most locals spoke English and, when asked, were very helpful.

1000 Islands / Mallorytown KOA, Mallorytown, Ontario

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $52.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed for 6 nights. 2 weekend nights were $76 CDN each. 4 weekday nights were $63 CDN each. KOA 10% discount applied. Converting $1 CDN to 75 cents USD. Avg cost approx $52 USD per night. Online reservation system easy to use. Check-in was fast and efficient and they gave us treats for our cat! We were guided to our site which was a non-deluxe pull-thru with 50amp, water and sewer. Sites are level and spacious. No foliage so good access to satellite. Verizon cell was good. Verizon data is slow when roaming. Park wifi was hit or miss. All hook-ups worked perfectly. Owners are personable, friendly and actively involved in day to day management. CG is clean and well-maintained. There are a lot of options to keep kids occupied and having fun. Train noise is fairly loud and as frequent as twice per hour. It didn't bother us but I can see that it could bother some. Both the entrance gate and exit gate are a bit quirky for a big rig so use caution. Although we enjoyed our stay, if we wanted to visit the 1000 Island area again, I would probably look for a CG further West as we found ourselves traveling that direction for all of our activities even if it meant sacrificing some of the amenities. However, if we just needed a night or two while passing by on the 401, this would be an excellent choice (albeit expensive). We camped at 1000 Islands / Mallorytown KOA in a Motorhome.

Highly recommend to cycle the 1000 Islands Parkway. It's a dedicated bike path with lovely views of the river and beautiful homes. You can ride to it from the CG. The small, local Freshmart grocery store has a surprisingly good selection so you don't have to travel far for provisions. On a rainy day, we drove to the cute little town of Clayton, NY, to visit the Antique Boat Museum. We had delicious pizza and beer at Wood Boat Brewery across the street.

Glen Rouge Campground, Toronto, Ontario

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

We paid $38.50 CDN plus 13% tax plus $10 CDN reservation fee. Converting $1 CDN to 75 cents USD. Online reservation system was easy to use but carefully read the site description as to 30amp vs 50amp. Check in was friendly and efficient. We had site #6 which was 50amp with water. No sewer. The dump station is in a quirky place near the check-in kiosk and not designed for big rigs. You could probably use it with a big rig but would likely be blocking the entrance for others. Fortunately we didn't have to use it. We did use the showers which are generally clean but dated with an annoying button that needs to be pressed every few seconds and you can't re-push the button until the water turns off. The park had intermittent 50amp issues for the first two days but got it fixed. They also had wifi issues which were never resolved during our 5 day stay. Verizon cell signal was ok. Verizon data is slow when roaming. We were able to obtain a DirecTV signal in spite of the trees. Interior roads could use some tree trimming and are a bit tight for a 40' rig but do-able. We unhooked our toad in the large parking area before going through the entrance and re-hooked in the same place when leaving. Having said all that, it is a beautiful park and other reviewers have described it well. There is lots of green grass and trees with pretty birds and a family of black squirrels. We didn't notice any road noise. It's nice to be secluded in this setting while having conveniences such as Walmart, Home Depot and transit just a few miles away. If we returned to the Toronto area, we would definitely stay here again. We camped at Glen Rouge Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

CG is quick on/off the 401. GoTrain station is 10 minute drive from CG. Train system is easy to use. Locals are happy to help if you need assistance. From Union Station, you can walk everywhere. We enjoyed a walking tour of the St. Lawrence Market with Culinary Adventure. Instead of spending a fortune to go up CN Tower, we were advised to have a drink at Canoe Restaurant (located on 54th floor at 66 Wellington Street) which was great advice.

Fifty Point Conservation Area, Grimsby, Ontario

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $42.00
Overall Rating:      

We paid $55.94/night CDN (which includes 13% tax) plus a one-time reservation fee of $14.13 CDN. Converting 1 CDN to 75 cents USD. CG is very easy on/off the QE Highway. We were in the new section which is very big rig friendly. Our site had 50amp, water and sewer. It was spacious, level and offered an open sky (no shade). All hook-ups worked perfectly. We had good Verizon cell and DirecTV satellite signals. Verizon data while roaming is slow. Park wifi was iffy. The online reservation system was easy to use and check-in was fast and friendly. This is a large property with a lake, marina, sports facilities and walking paths. While the CG area was clean, we did see lots of trash around the greater conservation area which was disappointing for such a lovely location. We enjoyed our time here and, if in the area, would be happy to stay again. We camped at Fifty Point Conservation Area in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Toronto is about an hour - expect traffic. We had mechanical issues and received excellent service from Sicard RV about 15 minutes from the CG. We also had pet issues and received quality care from Grimsby Animal Hospital about 10 minutes from the CG. Truck-style fuel stops seem few and far between so plan carefully. They're not typically next to a freeway off ramp as we find them in the US. We filled up at Flying J in Mississauga on the way to Toronto.

King Waldorf's Tent and Trailer Park, Niagara Falls, Ontario

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

We paid $60/night CDN plus 13% tax for a total of $67.80/night CDN. Converting at $1 CDN to 75 cents USD. No reservation fee. I believe our site was #2. We had a premium site with 50 amp, water and sewer backing up to the Welland River. We were relatively close to the street and you could hear road noise during the day. It quiets down at night. I don't know why they didn't put us away from the street since the park was practically empty. There were about 4 campers and 2 tenters. Interior trees need trimming. We mentioned this to staff but never saw any action. The site was level and all hook-ups worked well. Our Verizon cell signal was good but Verizon data while roaming can be slow. The park doesn't have wifi. While we had mostly open sky, there was one tree in front of our site that was determined to block our sat signal. With a remote dish, I'm sure you could find a signal. I also imagine most sites along the river would provide a sat signal. The reservation process in advance was easy and check-in upon arrival was efficient. I didn't use the restrooms but looked at them. They were "dirty" in the sense of bugs and cobwebs - ick. Otherwise the CG was very clean. The pool had not opened for the season (mid-June). The staff was gone by approx 4pm and store was closed. We didn't notice any security at night but never had a reason for concern. We enjoyed the river view and peaceful campground but it had a weird vibe - maybe because it was so empty. The husband liked it more than I did. We would be willing to stay again but, if returning to the area, we'd look at all options before making a final choice. We camped at King Waldorf's Tent and Trailer Park in a Motorhome.

Easy on/off the QE Highway. There's a Walmart nearby. Attractions are super close. We had mechanical issues and received excellent service from Sicard RV in Smithville, Ontario (40 minutes away). We also had pet issues and received quality care from Grimsby Animal Hospital in Grimsby, Ontario (10 minutes from Sicard RV). Costco trivia for Americans - Canadian Costco's only accept MasterCard - not Visa and not Amex. We were not prepared! They do accept US currency.

Four Mile Creek State Park, Youngstown, New York

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $31.00
Overall Rating:      

We paid $26/night plus $5/night for non-NY resident plus $9 reservation fee. The total for our 4 night stay was $133. Our non-premium site (233) was across the street from the premium view sites. Because sites are spaced so generously, we had a lovely (partial) view of the lake. Hook-ups included 50 amp and water (no sewer), worked perfectly. The mostly grass site was basically level. We had good Verizon voice and data reception and were able to obtain DirecTV signal. The park does not offer WiFi. This is a large, clean, well-designed beautiful campground. Staff and campers are very friendly and always smiling. It's a wonderful destination all by itself even before you factor in its proximity to the local attractions. It has lots of big, green grassy areas ideal for young and old alike. We very much enjoyed our time here and would delighted to stay again. We camped at Four Mile Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

We enjoyed a delicious and reasonably priced lunch at Michael's Italian Restaurant on Pine Avenue in Niagara Falls. The soup was delicious.
