Arm of Gold Campground & RV Park, Little Bras d'Or, Nova Scotia

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

Lovely, picturesque grassy campground on the banks of Little Bras D'Or Lake. This is an exceptionally well maintained and attractive campground in every sense of the word that has everything you need including a food truck. It is perfect for staging a ferry trip to Newfoundland as the ferry is only 4 km away. Stayed here twice - on way over and then as a respite on our way back. There is no privacy here but the sites are open and spacious, some a bit closer, in a very attractive setting. Electric, water and sewer as advertised. WiFi was spotty. Over the air TV stations available. Laundry facility is more than adequate and one of the best we've used. Also includes an information center for the local area and beyond with a well stocked lending library and DVD's. They also have a beautifully groomed and well maintained walking path that is just gorgeous for an evening walk. Be sure to make a reservation as this is a popular spot for caravans of campers. The only negative is Hwy 105 noise during the day but gets much quieter at night and was not an issue. We would definitely stay here again to explore the area, visit Cabot Island and to catch the ferry to Newfoundland. We camped at Arm of Gold Campground & RV Park in a Motorhome.

Winnie's Wagon Food Truck is hit or miss. Fish and Chips was a disappointment - very small portion of fish with old limp, greasy fries that we threw out. Must have been a bad day as supposedly their fries are good. However, the Chicken Wrap was excellent. Would give them the benefit of the doubt and try again. Jane's Restaurant - the BEST home cooking in the area! Very satisfying meals. They also do a brisk Pizza business - looked good.

Birchwood Campground & Cabins, Pictou, Nova Scotia

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

Nice campground filled with well kept seasonal campers. Great location to explore the town of Pictou. Owner was most accommodating in assessing our leveling requirements and assigning our site, however, our site was way too close to other campers. No privacy at all. Definitely a weekend destination for locals. Electric, Water, Sewer and WiFi were all good. We camped at Birchwood Campground & Cabins in a Motorhome.

On the advice of Nova Scotia Welcome Center we took Hwy 6 Sunrise Trail from Amherst - very scenic, BUT, rough road - wouldn't do again. Sharon's Place Restaurant - the BEST for home cooking! Mrs. MacGregors Shortbread Cookies - really good.

Cardinal Ridge Farm RV, Franklin, North Carolina

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $60.00
Overall Rating:      

More than a campground, this is an adult "retreat"! A small campground carved into a hillside with site vistas that are spectacular. The hosts are RV'ers and their approach to running this camp definitely comes from their experiences. Warm, welcoming and attentive they make you feel right at home as soon as you arrive and see your name on their chalk board. You'll get escorted to your site, set-up and before you know it the owner is there to give you a tour of their breathtaking property. Full service site (30 amp) offered privacy, peace and quiet. We had WiFi and over the air TV at certain times of the day. They have a deer refuge, do a nightly feeding and have geese and chickens. No pool or playground here but that's exactly the way this place is meant to be. Serenity now. We camped at Cardinal Ridge Farm RV in a Motorhome.

Twin Oaks RV Park & Campground, Elko, Georgia

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

Great overnight stop right off I75. Smaller quiet campground with about 70 sites. Well thought out, maintained and attractively decorated campground that appeared to have a few seasonal guests. They greet you are you drive in, take your directly to you site, tell you to set up, then to come back to the office and register - nice touch! Full hook up site, WiFi, over the air TV. They have a small store, and a community room with TV & lending library. Laundry on site. Perfect overnight stop. We camped at Twin Oaks RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Fries New River Trail RV Park, Fries, Virginia

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

Love Virginia, and, totally in love with Fries, Galax and Fries New River RV Park. Follow the directions on their website - roads are narrow & twisty but doable for Class A's. This is a quaint, small, immaculately maintained, well thought out, just about perfect place to rest, refresh, and get back in touch with whats important in life. We were in a full service site (30 amp) that was parallel to a small creek which was just perfect for a Class B with a sliding door - heaven! They offer cable TV, WiFi, and a bathhouse as welcoming as the one you have at home. The New River Bike Trail is right across the street and if you forgot your bike they have one for you. From the time you check in at their picturesque office cottage, sit a spell in their rockers, chat about the area, you'll know you are "home". We camped at Fries New River Trail RV Park in a Motorhome.

Venture out to the Thursday night Bluegrass Jam Session in town at the historic Fries Theater and they'll have you hand clapping and stomping your feet in no time at all. Soak it all in - this is some of the best Virginia has to offer!

Visit the Bluegrass Museum on the Blue Ridge Parkway to learn all about the history of the Town of Fries and catch the daily jam session. Galax Restaurants: Creek Bottom Brewing - great craft beer with an exceptional food menu. Galax Smokehouse - WOW, great BBQ. Try the Smoked, Deep Fried Baloney Sandwich - outstanding! Scoots - really good down home cooking. Daily special sells out early!

Jonestown / Hershey NE KOA, Jonestown, Pennsylvania

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

Nice overnight KOA stop right off I-81. For a quick, overnight stop this KOA has everything you need. One of the best equipped camp/grocery stores. It also has a take-out restaurant and ice cream shop for after those long haul days with a front porch that encourages relaxing and socializing. It has everything a kid could want to burn off that energy after a long day on the road - splash pad, playground. Our pull thru site had 30 amps, water, sewer and all worked as advertised. Sites are close, no privacy. Shade was prevalent throughout the campground. Would stay here again when passing through. We camped at Jonestown / Hershey NE KOA in a Motorhome.

Burnham Point State Park, Cape Vincent, New York

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

Small campground with an idyllic park like setting on the St. Lawrence River. There are quite a few waterfront sites set aside for tents with RV's on a small hill behind them - all with a view of the river. Sites are grassy, open, fairly spacious with either 30 or 50 amp service. Water is available at spigots but it is HIGHLY chlorinated so you may want to bring your own water. Dump station available. There are unisex bathrooms/showers that are nice and large enough for families and exceptionally clean. This is a quiet campground with emphasis on kicking back, relaxing, fishing, kayaking, swimming and just enjoying the beauty of the park. Not a high energy kid/family park. Nearest services would be in Cape Vincent. We camped at Burnham Point State Park in a Motorhome.

Robert Moses State Park (Thousand Island region), Massena, New York

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $48.00
Overall Rating:      

Nicely wooded, park like setting, directly on the St. Lawrence Seaway. For registration follow the signs to the "beach" not "campground" road. Our site was private, wooded, and directly on the river. It was electric only, 30 amp, with a water spigot nearby. Dump station was available at exit. No WiFi and some over the air TV stations. It was quite enjoyable to sit down by the river and watch the big ships entering the locks. Would definitely stay here again to watch the ships going through the locks.

Tips for other Campers:

There is a Hannaford Grocery store right outside the road to the park. Downtown Massena has been hit by an economic downturn, but, on the major roads surrounding town you will find all the big box stores and fast food places.

Visit the locks, the Dam, and the Nature Center. The locks are an engineering marvel, the Dam visitor center has some of the best interactive educational energy exhibits, and the Nature Center will get both young and old back in touch with nature - literally! Fast Food: JRec Subs/downtown Massena had good cheesesteaks. Very tasty but a little skimpy on the portions for the price.

Camping Transit, Levis, Quebec

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

This campground, located off A20 in an agricultural area, is a great location for visiting Quebec City. It has quite a few tastefully maintained seasonal campers. Full service transient sites are close and offer no privacy. There is a bit of road noise from A20 which is blocked by some trees. Water and Sewer was fine, but, the electric at our site had an issue with an "open ground" which was thankfully picked up by our Progressive Industries EMS. WiFi was good but they charge $2.50 CAD for it. Hosts are very friendly and helpful. They offer a shuttle to the Quebec City Ferry so no need to deal with parking. We didn't eat in the restaurant as it was filled to capacity for a local group special event but we heard it's good. Would stay here again when planning a trip to Quebec City. We camped at Camping Transit in a Motorhome.

De la Republique Provincial Park Campground, Edmundston, New Brunswick

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $27.00
Overall Rating:      

Nicely wooded campground right next to route 2. Minor road noise but not bad. This was an electric only fairly private, spacious site with good water available nearby. Ironically the water supply had numerous spigots one of which was being used permanently by a seasonal - hmmmm. Major concern was an electrical issue which we had to tell them about numerous times but they did finally did get it corrected the next day. Our Progressive Industries EMS kept turning off our power due to high voltage - 136/137!!!! Glad we had it - paid for itself! We camped at De la Republique Provincial Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Sunset View Campground and Cottages, Hawkshaw, New Brunswick

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

This is a very attractive, clean, nice, quiet, pleasant campground across the street from a river. Full service site was good but WiFi was inconsistent. No over the air TV. Campground does have it's share of seasonal campers which were all proudly and neatly maintained and obviously enjoyed by their owners. They had one of the cleanest pools I've ever seen at a campground and we took advantage of it on a hot afternoon. Met some of the friendliest seasonal campers and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this campground. We camped at Sunset View Campground and Cottages in a Motorhome.

Glooscap Campground, Parrsboro, Nova Scotia

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $26.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a county park that has a spectacular view and access to the Bay of Fundy. Excellent rating has to do with the site we were assigned as we had an end site with an unobstructed view of the Bay. There are many seasonal campers here but they leave the most desirable spots open for visitors - interesting and appreciated. Hosts were most accommodating when we asked to stay an extra night - didn't want to leave! Electric and Water was good and there is a dump station at the exit. WiFi was inconsistent. Great location to explore the Parrsboro area which is known for its fossils and minerals. Beachcombers paradise. We camped at Glooscap Campground in a Motorhome.

Celtic Rendezvous by the Sea, Tors Cove, Newfoundland

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $24.00
Overall Rating:      

Spectacular "parking lot" overlooking Witless Bay. Full service sites, 30 amp, good water, that are very close together - no privacy. Sites are not level which is surprising since its just a gravel lot. This campground is on an exposed overlook so wind and inclement weather can be an issue. Would not camp here if a storm is forecast. However, that said, the view is spectacular - no need to go on a whale watch - you can do it right from the bluff at the campsite that overlooks the bay. You can also view whales within 100 yards of the beach just down the road from the campground. Didn't use the facilities other than the laundry which was a LONG drawn out process - took many hours as machines were very slow. We camped at Celtic Rendezvous by the Sea in a Motorhome.

Pippy Park Campgrounds and Trailer Park, St John's, Newfoundland

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

Great urban campground. Located right in the City of St Johns in a park setting. Full service site was good, but WiFi was weak even though we were close to the entrance to the park. As expected, there is some city noise but it's not that bad. Our site was on the main road, nicely wooded and private - Class B size lot. Loops 1,2,3 are nicely treed but not all level. Loop 4 is open/drive thru sites and has better WiFi. Excellent location for exploring the city. Small store, mostly candy, but plenty of stores nearby. As in any city, be "city smart" and as their signs say, "don't leave anything out". Security patrols on a regular basis and we didn't witness any issues. Felt secure the whole time we were there and actually stayed an extra day. We camped at Pippy Park Campgrounds and Trailer Park in a Motorhome.

Fluvarium across the street gives you a unique underwater view of the river. Very educational. Johnson Geo Centre is an exceptional science museum - a must see! Signal Hill has an awesome view of all of St. John. Piatto Pizza - the best coal fired pizza in town! Duke of Duckworth on George St - pub with great local flavor. Recommended by the locals as to where they go in George Street area. Be careful in the area - can be a little unsavory.
