The roads into the park and inside the park are easy to navigate. Check in was fast and friendly. They have a small store with basic needs. There are around 30 sites and a large tent area. The park is well maintained and quiet. There is a playground and rec room with games and TV. We were in Site 18, a gravel, level pull through with full hook ups.. No problems with any of the hookups. Sites a little narrow, there is a picnic table and fire ring with a grill. The laundry and bathrooms were clean. WiFi was good and our Verizon signal was strong.

Onion River Campground, Plainfield, Vermont

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

Roads to the park are good, the road into the park has a narrow bridge with a weight limit of 27,000 lbs, but we went across it in our Class A as we had already turned onto the road and had no where else to go! The roads in the park are rutted so go slow. There was no check in as we paid in advanced. We did get led to our site but there was some confusion as to what sites were 30 or 50 amp. Sites are very unlevel, you can see the slopes and rolls in the ground. We ended up parking parallel to the hook-ups across a couple of sites - per their instructions - as there was no way to level otherwise. We had water and 50 amp electric, and there is a dump station on site. There was a fire ring and they brought us a picnic table when we requested one. The park is clean and very pretty, the grass really needed to be cut. There are lots of trials for hiking, one that takes you to the Rail Bed Trail and along another creek. There is no WiFi and our Verizon signal was good. No on site laundry. Some road noise but not too bad. Would love to give this a full star rating because it is such a nice place with the trails and river, but the unlevel sites and no WiFi, make that impossible. We stayed July 30 - August 6, 2018 and paid $28.57 a night with no discount. We camped at Onion River Campground in a Motorhome.

Outdoor Adventure & Campground, Bethel, Maine

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $46.00
Overall Rating:

The roads into the park are easy to navigate, the roads in the park are good but have a few pot holes so go slow. Check in was fast and friendly. The camp is well maintained and very quiet. It sits on the Androscoggin River and they offer tubing and kayaking tours. There are trails in the park for walking and a suspension bridge that will take you over the river to explore an island. We were in Site 20, a level gravel site with full hook ups and no issues with any of them. The sites are buddy sites, but they are wide and angle so that you are not on top of each other. There is a picnic table and a fire ring. Did not use laundry or bathrooms but both are available. We stayed July 19-26, 2018 and paid $46 a night with no discount. They offer Passport America on weeknights but you need to pay in cash and we weren't prepared to do that. We camped at Outdoor Adventure & Campground in a Motorhome.

Balsam Cove Campground, Orland, Maine

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $46.00
Overall Rating:

The roads to the park are good, the entrance road into the park is gravel and a few of the tree branches are low, so take it slow. The roads in the park are good. Check in was fast and friendly. There are around 120 sites, mostly permanent/seasonal. The park is clean and for the most part quiet. Our neighbor liked their music on the loud side, and when we asked management if they could ask them to adjust the base level (not the volume) as it was vibrating our RV we were told it was not quiet time yet. The campground is on Toddy Pond and has a beach and boat docks. There are lots of planned activities and breakfast and dinner on certain days. We were in Site 62, a gravel pull through with full hook ups. No issues with any of them. Site was not exactly level, even with our jack pads piled up our tires were still off the ground. There was a picnic table and fire ring. Lots of places for dog walking and a fenced dog park. WiFi was good as was our Verizon coverage. Laundry room was fairly clean. We stayed July 19-26, 2018 and paid $46.37 a night with our Good Sam Discount. We camped at Balsam Cove Campground in a Motorhome.

Cedar Haven Campground, Freeport, Maine

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $53.00
Overall Rating:

They have over 70 sites, mostly back-in with a few pull-throughs as well as tent sites. It is well maintained and quiet. Roads into and in the park are easy to navigate. Check in was fast and friendly. They have a general store with basic needs and ice cream, pizza and subs. There is a pond with a beach and plenty of chairs for relaxing. A playground, basketball court, volleyball and more. Laundry and bathrooms were clean. They also have a dog washing station. Plenty of room to walk the dog, but no dog park. We were in Site 2 a gravel pull-through. It had full hook-ups, 50 amp, no problems with any of them. Site was level, with a narrow strip of grass and a picnic table - would have been a 5 star rating if sites were a little wider. WiFi was good and Verizon signal strong.

Boston Minuteman Campground, Littleton, Massachusetts

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $55.00
Overall Rating:

This is a very pretty park with a mix of RV sites, pull-thrus and back-ins, cabins and tent sites. The roads into the park and in the park are easy to navigate. Check in was fast and friendly, they have a small store with basic needs. You are guided to your site. We were in Site A, a back in with full hook ups, no issues with any of them. The site was wider than normal, with room to store our tow-dolly, a picnic table and beautiful fire-pit made from large boulders. There is plenty to do. They have a pool, playground and game room. Bocce Ball court, ladder-ball, and corn-hole in their activity area away from the campground sites, along with a very nice fenced dog park. WiFI was good and our Verizon signal was strong. Did not use the laundry, bathroom was clean. We stayed July 5-9, 2018 and paid $54.90 a night with no discounts. We camped at Boston Minuteman Campground in a Motorhome.

Wolf's Den Family Campground, East Haddam, Connecticut

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

If you are coming in east on Hwy 82 across the Connecticut River and are in a big rig - Do Not take Ray Hill Rd as our GPS suggested. It is a narrow road with a steep incline and a number of curves. Keep going to 82/151 and then head south to the campground. This is a large campground. A number of the sites are permanent but very well kept up. Check in was fast and friendly. You will need to pay $10 for the gate key - you get your money back when you turn it back in. If you are in a Class A or C you may need to get out of the vehicle to use the gate key. We were in Site 43, a back in with room to store the tow-dolly. It is grass with a small patch of cement to park the RV on. They are nice and wide and level. We had electric (50amp) and water only with a grey water dumping. We had never used this type of system before, even after staying in 100's of campgrounds across the county, so we were not familiar with how it worked. It would be helpful at check in if they ask if you know about it. You need a special hose and connection piece, which they sell in their store, but we didn't know we needed it till we started to set up. Hubby went and bought the hose, then discovered he needed the connect so he had to go back to the store to get that. All could have been avoided if they had asked us if we were familiar with it. Once set up, it worked great. There is a pool, playground, ball field, game room, putt-putt golf, a number of stocked ponds and plenty of organized activities. The laundry and bathroom were clean. WiFi was good and Verizon signal was strong. The park is quiet and well maintained. We stayed June 25 - July 5, 2018 and paid $39.70 a night with a combination of Passport America Discount and their weekly rate. We camped at Wolf's Den Family Campground in a Motorhome.

Catskill Adventure Resort , Wurtsboro, New York

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $49.00
Overall Rating:

If you are on Hwy 209 you want to get off on Hwy 17 W and then use exit 112, turn left on Masten Lake Crossover, then left on Wurtsboro Mountain Rd, then right on Masten Lake Rd/56, then right on Mt Vernon Rd, the campground will be on your right. You avoid a very steep hill by going this way. All the roads are easy to navigate as are the roads in the park. Check in was fast and friendly. There is a general store with basic needs. The park is very well maintained. There are a number of permanent sites but all are very clean, most have beautiful gardens. The overnighter section is a wide open field with few trees. There is plenty to do. A large pool, playground, stocked pond with canoes, horseshoes, a huge skate park and a large pavilion. There is a restaurant that serves breakfast on Saturday and Sundays and an adult lounge. Our site was a back in, extra wide and grass. It was not very level, we had full hook ups, no issues with any of them. There was plenty of room to store our tow dolly on site. It was very quiet. Plenty of places to walk the dog, no dog park. The laundry and bathrooms were clean. WiFi was an extra charge of $14.95 for the week, this is why there is a 9 star and not 10 rating. The WiFi was okay, spotty a few times. We stayed June 18-25, 2018 and paid $46.00 a night - $48.70 with the WiFi cost added in. There was no discount. We camped at Catskill Adventure Resort in a Motorhome.

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

The roads into the park are good, once in the park there are pot holes and some tight turns. Check in was fast and friendly. The park has a very run down feel to it. Most sites are permanent and not very well kept up. There is a fair amount of litter on the roads. Over the weekend it was very noisy with lots of partying. There is a pool, and numerous other activities, along with a catch and release pond. We were in site 118, a gravel pull through, end site. There is a picnic table and fire ring. Site was level with full hook ups. No issues with any of them. WiFi was very spotty. Verizon signal was good. We stayed June 14-18, 2018 and paid $32 a night.

Old Cedar Campground, Monroeville, New Jersey

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $29.00
Overall Rating:

This place is off the beaten path but a great place to stay. The roads in are good. GPS may not bring up the last road in - Foote Lane - but there is a sign for the campground at the end of the road. Check in was fast and friendly. We were originally in Site 28 but we could not level our RV - there is a slope at the front end of the site. We moved to Site 40 and it was easier to level - still not perfect but better. This is the reason for the 9 star rating, otherwise it would be a 10. Sites are wider than normal. Site 40 is a pull through with full hook ups, no issues with any of them. It was plenty long enough for our 37-foot Class A, tow-dolly and parking the car. The park is well maintained and very quiet. There is a cow pasture next to the camp but there was no smell. They have a play ground, fishing pond and a pool, but there are no chairs or table at the pool. Laundry is an open room so it was pretty dusty but the machines were clean. Some of the dryers don't heat up very well. WiFi was just okay. Verizon signal was good. We stayed June 7 -14, 2018 and paid $29 a night. We camped at Old Cedar Campground in a Motorhome.

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

Roads into the park and inside the park are good. Check in was fast and friendly and they offered area information. The park is well maintained. There is a camp store with your basic needs. Lots of trails for hiking and activities for kids. We were in D-51, a gravel pull through with full hook ups. The site is VERY unlevel no matter where you pull in. We used all of our jack pads and our tires were far off the ground. We needed to buy additional sewer hose to reach the sewer connect. To turn the water on - there is a small ring under the faucet that needs to be pulled down - they didn't tell us this but luckily a neighbor knew what to do! The sites are very large and wooded. It was plenty long enough for our 37-foot Class A, tow-dolly and parking the car. Extremely quiet. It seems they are working on the leveling issues, which would give it a 10 star rating. The laundry room and bathrooms are clean. There is no WiFi. Our Verizon signal was good. We stayed May 28 - June 4, 2018 and paid $36 a night with our Passport America discount.

The roads into and inside the park are good. This is a very large park, but most of it is not used any more. Check in was fast and friendly. The park is well maintained and quiet. We were in Site F-3, a level pull through with full hook ups, no issues with the hook ups. It was plenty long enough for our 37-foot Class A, tow-dolly and parking the car. For the first few days we had lots of room but, once every site was filled, we were pretty tight - our awning was almost touching our neighbor. There is a pool but no chairs, no laundry room and we did not use the bathrooms. Plenty of open space for dog walking - no dog park. WiFi was okay but spotty at times. Verizon signal was strong. We stayed May 20 - 28, 2018 and paid $27.00 a night with a combination of Passport America and their weekly rate.

The roads into the park are good. It is a gated park. If no one is at the gate, check the mailbox for check-in information. Roads in the park have some pot holes. Office was closed so we checked in the next morning which was fast and friendly. There is a store with basic needs, a game room, pool and playground. This is a large, well maintained park with one section for full timers. There are two lakes and canals. We were in Site 18 which is a level pull through with full hook ups. The sewer drain was clogged but they came and cleaned it out. Site is average width, level and had a picnic table. It was plenty long enough for our 37-foot Class A, tow-dolly and parking the car. The laundry room and bathrooms are clean. Lots of places to walk your dog, but no dog park. WiFi was an extra fee. We did not use it and this iswhy we gave it a 9 star instead of 10 star rating.
