Maxie's Campground, Broussard, Louisiana

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $24.00
Overall Rating:

Good for what it is, a zero frills low-cost overnight stop. Back in gravel sites that are easy to get in and out of, FHU, no Wi-Fi. We came in right after a tropical depression and there were plenty of big mud puddles, But we avoided most with a little effort. You can stay at another site for a lot more money or stay at Walmart for free, but if you want inexpensive digs overnight then this fits the bill. With movies and dining nearby, were happy with this as an overnight stop. The manager was very nice and easy-going. We camped at Maxie's Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Hoover RV Park, Hoover, Alabama

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

This park is in the parking lot at the Hoover Metropolitan Stadium. Tons of identical full hook-up, pull-thu sites on asphalt. Each site has its own large trash can, which is nice. Roads are easy to navigate and utilities all work well. Our Wi-Fi was good, but there were very few people in the park. Our site was not long enough for our truck and trailer to park end-to-end, but we were able to put the truck on the side of the trailer and easily fit in our assigned space. We never saw any staff - we were assigned our site number by their reservation service and drove straight to it. We camped at Hoover RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Cove Creek RV Resort, Sevierville, Tennessee

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

Friendly staff and fellow campers in a nice campground. Some pull/thrus, mostly back-ins, all gravel and level. We staid in one of the slots near the entrance and they were extremely roomy. Utilities good, including WiFi, cable and cell service. Small camp store onsite, and a pool and game room w/TV. Situated nicely between Pigeon Forge and Smoky Mountain NP. We camped at Cove Creek RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Luray KOA (formerly Luray RV Resort Country Waye), Luray, Virginia

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

Very well-maintained, immaculate, attractive park. They upgraded us to a deluxe site with a deck, table, deluxe fire ring, chairs, and view up on the hill. They have the biggest enclosed dog park I have ever seen. Our site was back-in, but we saw pull-thrus, too. Good location down a quiet road, but not far from Luray Caverns or Skyline Drive. Our lone gripe was the slow wifi. We camped at Luray KOA (formerly Luray RV Resort Country Waye) in a Fifth Wheel.

Harpers Ferry / Civil War Battlefields KOA, Harpers Ferry, West Virginia

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $74.00
Overall Rating:

Nice, but pricey KOA. There are a bunch of big rig sites up front and if you can get one of those you will be fine in a big rig. Otherwise, the sites are more wooded and narrow and suitable for smaller trailers. We found the wifi useless and the pancake lady surly. There is a well-provisioned store, nice pool, minigolf, play areas, and they offer Civil War tours on the grounds and for nearby Murphy's farm. They are also the best base for exploring Harpers Ferry. They are too expensive and charge a $10 resort fee to add insult to injury. We found our gravel site large enough and the grounds comfortable, but can't justify the price gouging. We camped at Harpers Ferry / Civil War Battlefields KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Liberty Harbor RV Park, Jersey City, New Jersey

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $90.00
Overall Rating:

Back-in sites on patchy, weedy asphalt. Utilities: 50/30 amp, water, no sewer, spotty wifi, good cell coverage, no satellite obstructions. There is a dump in one corner of the campground with reachable but slightly annoying access. The grounds are fairly scabby and there is almost nowhere to walk a dog. Neighbors are close, but no real issues parking or deploying. Staff are knowledgeable and friendly. We would never recommend this place were it not for the location. There is no better alternative for NYC and as a place to stay and sleep Liberty Harbor works. We staid 8 nights and went to plays in midtown daily. Our commute: walk to Hudson-Bergen light rail about 1/5 mile away, ride 2 stops to Exchange Place, walk across plaza, take Parh train one stop to Wold Trade Center stop in Oculus, walk thru shiny well-lit Oculus to subway stops at other end of building, ride appropriate subway uptown. There are many subway lines to choose from, so you can usually get pretty close to wherever you need to go Our commute to Midtown was typically about 45 minutes. The trip home each evening was typically over an hour, because the subways and trains run less frequently and there is a bit more waiting. Each segment was $2.75. We got an unlimited seven day MetroCard, but that does not work for Path or Hudson. We added money to the metrocard to cover rhe Path trips and bought tickets for the Hudson rail. We camped at Liberty Harbor RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Winter Island Park Campground, Salem, Massachusetts

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $48.00
Overall Rating:

Good campground, with some quirks. A previous reviewer said it well --- this is a marina and public boat ramp where they added water & electric. That said, it's a great location to camp --- with simultaneous views of an asphalt parking lot (looking in) and great waterfront views (looking out). We happened to be right beside the boat ramp and took regular amusement in watching folks back their boats poorly down the ramp. The good stuff: a lovely gazebo on the water, benches galore, kayaks and SUPs for rent, a great loop walk that passes by a lighthouse, bluff, old fort, beach and harbormaster point (on the other side). While we used our own bathroom, I used the public restroom a couple of times and found it quite clean...there was a lady working diligently to clean it each morning...perhaps this is a recent change. (?) Demerits: Our power and water were on the wrong side of the coach and it took 2 water hoses to reach. Not all are like that, but many utilities are oddly placed. The dump site is down the road at the sewage treatment plant. DO NOT USE THIS DUMP is you are towing a big rig. The dump requires driving in, turning around, and coming back to the dump station. They have construction going on in the plant with dumpsters and other things blocking the route...we could not turnaround with our truck and 35 foot trailer. We had to back out and execute a full 3 point turn with trailer to get out. It took us 45 minutes; Never again. I think smaller trailers and Class A's and Class C's could make it, if you are comfortable with backing. Bigger rigs...forget it! The folks in the office were very nice. During our 5 days we saw gulls, comerants, squirrels, a woodchuck and a skunk! The skunk was under our rig and the dog flushed it after midnight, but the dog was on a leash and we stopped him from catching the skunk...and said consequences. A fog often rolls in overnight and early morning walks are glorious. We camped at Winter Island Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

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.
