Meadowlark Park, Middletown, Rhode Island

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

Great location. satisfactory park. We had asked for a FHU and mailed in a deposit, and when we arrived they only had an electric only site. Apparently this is standard operating procedure, so be sure you are OK with electric-only before considering this park. There is a dump station near the front where you can also take on water. There are also a couple of water stations scattered around the park. The water pressure is pretty low, so it takes a while to fill your tank. We think there are a few FHU sites up front, but almost all of those sites are taken by seasonal trailers. Also, those sites seem to be much closer together than the ones in the back or "the field" as they call it. The sites in the field are all grass, back-in sites with 30 amp only. The sites are fairly spacious with old picnic tables and very few trees. There is a bit of a slope to all sites in the field, but nothing unmanageable. There is no Wi-Fi in the field, they lost their provider. They take cash or checks, they took our personal check from Texas. So why stay here? You are less than a mile from Easton Beach, not much further to second beach and very close to all of the mansions and the center of Newport. You are literally minutes from anywhere in town. They do keep the park mowed and clean, and they give you a big packet of information upon arrival. We were comfortable during our stay notwithstanding the limited amenities. We camped at Meadowlark Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Wild Duck Campground & RV Park (Adult Only), Scarborough, Maine

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $60.00
Overall Rating:

This is a nice well-maintained park. It is quite obvious that the owners take pride in their campground and work hard to keep it up. They have full utilities, wifi, ($1/day and they gave us a couple of days free), good cell coverage, cable TV, and our site was a flat dirt back-in site that had been freshly raked. We had two complaints, one of which was out of their control. During our stay at the end of July the mosquitoes were fierce. We really couldn't go out without spraying or fully covering our arms and legs. Very annoying and I would not go back during mosquito season. Our other complaint is the two narrow drainage ditches that cross the entry road and rack your truck, car or trailer every time you go in or out; that got old immediately. Also, the campground has a lot of trees and satellite reception is virtually impossible. We tried and tried with our portable because we wanted to watch Tour de France (we ended up watching it live on their cable TV). We found this a good base for exploring the Portland area. We camped at Wild Duck Campground & RV Park (Adult Only) in a Fifth Wheel.

Twin Mountain Motor Court & RV Park, Twin Mountain, New Hampshire

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

My kinda place. Not a resort, just a simple RV campground with a friendly owner and friendly fellow campers. FHU, 30 amp only (OK, I would prefer 50), good wifi, good water pressure, big fire rings, with plenty of room for dog walking. They sell firewood, and have a nice small shop, lounge and laundromat. Our site was a very long gravel pull-thru. It took 2 hoses to reach the sewer, but I probably could have parked closer to the hole if I'd paid more attention. Cell coverage is sketchy in the area, but our cell booster worked and saved us. Most RVs are in the rear area which is wide open for satellite. Many people were out in the evenings enjoying their fires, and they built a larger bonfire in the back field on Saturday night. We found this a very comfortable base for exploring the White Mountains --- we branched out from here. We camped at Twin Mountain Motor Court & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Cobscook Bay State Park, Dennysville, Maine

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $27.00
Overall Rating:

Typical state park --- pretty setting, no utilities at site. They have a water/dump station near the entrance, but use the driveway closest to the entrance to get the dump on the driver side. Sites are VERY secluded, mostly level, mostly grass. A few looked less level. In July, the mosquitoes were pretty fierce. Our site was WAY back in the park and if we had needed their showers we would have needed to commute via car or bike. Too many low branches on the way out for a big rig. We went slow and dodged most and scraped a few. The rangers were friendly and said they'd trim 'em back. We got lucky and got satellite at 16; Site 15 looked to have much more open sky. We camped at Cobscook Bay State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Holden Family Campground, Holden, Maine

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

Good, clean, calm, park, with no demerits. FHU, good wifi, some OTA channels, open skies for satellite, level gravel pull-thru sites that were plenty long and far enough from the neighbors, RV repair and supply shop next door, and a good base for exploring Bangor or a day trip to Bar Harbor and Acadia. The staff and neighbors were all friendly and relaxed --- "sure you can check out an hour later" --- that kinda thing. We camped at Holden Family Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

The Stephen King tour is excellent, but book a few days early. Great ice cream at Blueberry Hill Dairy, especially Chocolate Lover's Chocolate.

Campus Park & Ride, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $65.00
Overall Rating:

Utilitarian, but gets the job done. Sites are all concrete, back in, with 50 amp power, water, wi-Fi, cell coverage, and a clear sky for satellite (if your rig is tall enough to clear the building or you have a portable). Dog walking is tough, the only grass lines the entrance way or is outside the entrance, and it's kinda trashy. The area beyond the gate entrance is very sketchy. While they have a dump location, you must back into it and the sewer pipe is elevated, so I would skip it and dump at your next location as we did. We arrived on a Saturday when the guard shack was not staffed and had to call to be let in. We had to be let in and out of the gate by a driver the first few times until they got us a gate card. The people are friendly, and the office has detailed information on visiting Independence Hall and the other attractions and negotiating metro. The bus drivers (and bus patrons) were helpful, so we had no trouble taking the shuttle/bus combination to and from downtown. It may well be the ugliest site we have ever stayed in, but it is indeed quite close to all the major Philly attractions and it serves as an excellent base for a visit. We camped at Campus Park & Ride in a Fifth Wheel.

Hersheypark Camping Resort (formerly Hershey Highmeadow Campground), Hummelstown, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $66.00
Overall Rating:

This is one of those amenity-rich parks which charge too much. They've got a pool, a rec center, nightly movies, a well-equipped store, propane, garbage pick-up, etc. A big bonus is the shuttle bus that takes you about a mile down the road to Hershey Park and Chocolate World, thus saving you the aggravation and the cost of parking ($15 - $25 per day). So, if you factor that cost in, the nightly cost is not quite as annoying. Most (all?) sites were gravel, pull-thru sites. We were able to park our 35 foot 5th wheel easily enough, but then had to parallel park our truck in front of our trailer...as did many other folks, so trucks kinda lined the interior roads. While sites aren't difficult to get into, our neighbors were still much closer than we'd prefer. The utilities were in the back --- it took two water hoses and I couldn't dump my sewer without backing the rig up even with two lengths of pipe. Also, the sewer pipe was almost a foot tall; pretty aggravating when dumping. The staff were uniformly terrific and hardworking; they really seem to be trying to run a good efficient park. It's pretty wooded, so satellite was difficult, but we eventually got it to work. We camped at Hersheypark Camping Resort (formerly Hershey Highmeadow Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

Merry Meadows Recreation Farm (formerly Morris Meadows), Freeland, Maryland

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $54.00
Overall Rating:

Pretty big park with over 200 spaces. Very diverse --- if you want secluded in the woods, they've got that. If you want wide open spaces (like us, for satellite), they've got that, too. Our site was one of several long pull-throughs terraced onto a big tree-less hill --- all the sites were flat, gravel, and very long (could have parked 2 trailers and tow vehicles). Internal roads are a bit narrow at points, so you may get some leaf brushing, and there are lots of roads so you need to pay attention to the map. They had a large pool which we didn't use, and a nice setup for nightly movies (good sound!) --- we watched Elvis in Blue Hawaii one evening (but they had modern stuff, too)l. As others have stated, they do seem to have a ridiculous amount of rules. They charge for every "visitor", even if you have a dog walker or pizza delivery person come in. The park has potential, but they need to lighten up a bit; they definitely can't tolerate coloring outside the lines. We camped at Merry Meadows Recreation Farm (formerly Morris Meadows) in a Fifth Wheel.

Patapsco Valley State Park - Hollofield Area, Ellicott City, Maryland

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $26.00
Overall Rating:

Reiterating what others have stated: approach from the west and you're OK; approach from the east and beware the 11 foot bridge (and we saw NO warning signs!!); 30 amp only; entry road is indeed steep, but not really a problem unless your vehicle is underpowered; a few sites looked like they would require more care to get into with larger rigs. Other tidbits we learned: sites are pretty widely spaced and thus quite private; very wooded which makes it a nice 10 degrees cooler, but forget about satellite anywhere; the potable water is in one spot and the dump is in another and both are on the inside "electric" loop; you must use their wood, but they have plenty; you have to make a 90 degree turn to exit, which isn't a big deal unless there are cars queued up at the entrance like when we left --- we had to thread the needle; when leaving the park the entrance ramp on to Hwy 40 is very short, so you'll have to wait for a gap and/or floor it. As others have stated, this is a great state park to get away from it all with a classic feel and hiking trails, pavillions, ranger programs and the quiet of the woods at night. We didn't explore the trails or woods as we used this as a base for exploring Baltimore, so we went into the city every day. Our site was 429, the last on the electric loop, which is very long and has the added advantage that you can go the wrong way on the one way road for about 20 yards and pull right into your driveway without having to go all the way around the loop when returning to camp. We camped at Patapsco Valley State Park - Hollofield Area in a Fifth Wheel.

Cherry Hill Park (Washington DC), College Park, Maryland

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $66.00
Overall Rating:

Closest park to DC, and they offer so much: bus to local metro rail, pre-loaded Metro cards in office, dog walker on premises, hiking trail that is great for walking dogs (or yourself), over 400 spaces from back-in to premium pull through, daily sightseeing seminars from people who know their stuff, tours that leave from the property, add or subtract nights with no penalty (unheard of), café, two pools, hot tub, putt putt, water parks for kiddies, nightly movies, strong and free wifi. Wow. Cons: this is a busy park, so if you cannot stand people go elsewhere; The back-in sites aren't quite long enough for longer trailers and tow vehicles so there are many trucks parallel parked on the street which makes it a little tight driving around. Still, as a base for exploring the city they are about perfect. Our site had open access for satellite, but if you wanted more shaded, they have that, too. We camped at Cherry Hill Park (Washington DC) in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice state park campground on gorgeous grounds. Pros: very long pull-thru asphalt sites, mostly open so satellite works, FHU, nice tables and fire rings, lots of space, ATT/Verizon good, lots of woods and space for walking dogs. Cons: sites not completely level -- the grounds are terraced and they slope a bit, but manageable, no wifi. We camped at Shawnee State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Hocking Hills State Park, Logan, Ohio

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

Hocking Hills State Park is a gem and this campground is right in the middle of it. In fact, it is right next door to the Old Man Cave area which is a highlight of the area, and right down the road from Cedar Falls. So, location, location, location. Pros: location, FHU, level, concrete pads, lovely wooded grounds, nice amphitheater and pool, good staff and supplies in office. Cons: entry road a bit tight (take it slow), no wifi, no ATT, (Verizon worked), utilities towards the back of the site (took 2 sewer hoses), muddy after a monsoon (boy did we get some rain). We saw deer, bunnies and had a turkey just behind our coach. We camped at Hocking Hills State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Maywood Community (55+ primarily long term), Chesterland, Ohio

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $21.00
Overall Rating:

Great "no amenities" park. FHU with no wifi, pool, showers, putt-putt or anything. What you get is a good sized back-in concrete or gravel site for $20 per night! The utilities are slightly towards the back and required 2 sewer hoses. There are about 1/2 dozen sites for transient RVers in a sea of very nice mobile homes. The dog walking area is limited; you have to go towards the street to get more. Lot of retail and fast food nearby. We used this as a base for exploring Cleveland.

Wayne County Fairgrounds & RV Park, Belleville, Michigan

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

Big fairgrounds with the RV camping at one end. Pros: friendly staff, almost all pull-thru sites that are plenty long, level grass sites, tons of room for dog-walking, very satellite friendly as all the trees are on the perimeter of the park, no pool or other resort amenities (we don't care). Cons: sites are not tight but closer than one would prefer, two sets of utilities come per utility island so people pull thru in alternating directions which means you'll likely be facing your neighbor (not necessarily a bad thing), grass was pretty muddy after a big rain. Plenty of shops and fast food nearby, there's a Camping World a mile away, and this is a good location to the Henry Ford complex. We explored Detroit from this location as none of the other campgrounds looked that great. We would stay here again. We camped at Wayne County Fairgrounds & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Munising Tourist Park Campground, Munising, Michigan

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $44.00
Overall Rating:

Beautiful campground right on Lake Superior. Many of the sites edge right up to the beach and those that are set further back still have lake views and are only steps from the lake. There is a ribbon of beach that runs the length of the campground and is great for a stroll (or dog walk). You'll get a great sunset every night. Lots of places to walk a dog. The campground is not far from Munising, so it is a great location for exploring Pictured Rocks. Some pull-thrus, more back-ins. Minuses: no sewer, only one dump station, and the utilities are on the back of many sites --- I needed 2 water hoses. We camped at Munising Tourist Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
