Turtle Kraal RV Park, Alton, New Hampshire

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

I wish I could give this campground a higher rating, but my vision of a "10" campground is one that gives you a choice of sun or shade, and this one doesn't. In my view, this is a very nice, large, level field with roads and utilities for camping. Trees ring the exterior of the campground where most of the seasonals are located (and I can't blame them for taking those sites), but that didn't help those of us who were stationed in the middle with no respite from the sun. And fortunately, or unfortunately, during our stay we had plenty of sun. It hovered close to 90 most of the days. Yes, I knew when I made the reservation that this was a field with no trees, but the constant heat and air conditioner use made it seem even worse. I must add that it was quiet at night, the utilities were excellent, the bath house was meticulously clean, and the staff we met were friendly and informative. I have to honestly say that if we were in the area again, and it was the spring or fall, we may try Turtle Kraal again, but definitely not in the heat of the summer. p.s. We didn't see any turtles...they must have been hiding from the heat. We camped at Turtle Kraal RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

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

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $36.00
Overall Rating:      

This campground is basically a field behind cabins that they rent. There are about 30 pull through sites that radiate off of a center road. Less than half were occupied when we arrived and less than five or six were still there when we departed. The water (+45 pounds pressure), electric and sewer were fine and the cable received dozens of channels. I even got to see two Hill Street Blues reruns. All the staff and the seasonal residents were friendly and there was plenty of room for dog walking. The first several days the WiFi was poor to terrible, then when three or four motor homes departed one morning, it improved greatly. We did use the laundry to do several loads. It was clean and not expensive. The CG is centrally located so it was good for sightseeing, but our only complaint is that it was just an open field. No trees and no shade. On hot summer days some trees are a respite from the heat, but they had none to share. Oh yes, lest I forget, on one night, someone not related to or staying in the CG decided to present us with a fireworks display just outside the campgrounds perimeter. Of course our dog is deathly afraid of the noise, so we had to deal with a shaking, panting dog for several hours after the detonating of the illegal fireworks. Not the fault of the campground whatsoever, but unfortunately it still happened. We camped at Twin Mountain Motor Court & RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Crow's Nest Campground, Newport, New Hampshire

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

I have to agree with a previous reviewer on their appraisal of the park and the way it's set-up. We also heartily agree that the circle area on the other side of the pond was very quiet at night, one of the main requirements for us to give a good review. We also concur that the staff we dealt with were very friendly and accommodating, and the WiFi, although at a slight per day cost, was very strong. However, two items I wanted to mention were the utilities and the roads. This was the oddest utility layout I have ever seen. The water was at the front of the site, then the electric box, then the sewer connection was all the way at the back. We like the RV to be further back off the road, so we needed 2 sections of fresh water hose, but we had to maneuver the rig first so that the electric cord would reach. Then once we connected the water, we needed one section of sewer hose fully extended to reach the drain. It worked because we carry more hose than normal, just a little odd. And then there were the roads, or maybe goat paths would be a better term to use. Someone sold Crow's Nest a bill of goods with all the speed bumps they installed, because they definitely are not needed. There are so many potholes and bumps and rocks that I would have been crazy going 5 MPH, let alone anything faster than that. Fix the roads and you have home that I would return to. We camped at Crow's Nest Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Camping on the Battenkill, Arlington, Vermont

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

This campground was extremely quiet at night, just the way we like them. No road noise, no airports, no Interstate highways close by. We had a choice and picked a very wooded site which we liked. Unfortunately our second day was nothing but steady rain, which caused us to spend more time in the campground than we normally do, but there were no negatives to report on. They do have good WiFi, but make sure you get the code from the office because it won't work without it. We received only 4 PBS channels via our antenna, but we weren't here to sit and watch the tube. If in the area, we would stay here again. We camped at Camping on the Battenkill in a Travel Trailer.

Partridge Hollow Campground, Monson, Massachusetts

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

First, I must give the owners/staff kudos for their customer service. We expected to arrive around 5 PM after a 350 mile drive, but due to construction on I-81 and I-84, we were delayed and the GPS estimated our arrival at 7:15 PM, fifteen minutes after the office closed. We called the first time around 5 PM and gave them our ETA, and indicated that we would register the next morning. They said not to worry, that someone would stay until we arrived. We called a second time when the ETA changed, and still the same reply. When we pulled in at 7:20 PM, they were still in the office and greeted us warmly, with no indications that we were holding them up with our late arrival. They took us to our site and helped guide us in and also explained about the grey water discharge. Thank you! I must comment that our site was spacious and shaded, just the way we like them to be. It appeared that there were numerous activities planned for the families, but we didn't get involved in any of those, or use any of their facilities. The only negative, and it was NOT the fault of the campground, was the fireworks display set off by one of the campgrounds neighbors on our last night. Our dog is deathly afraid of any loud noise like gun shots or fireworks, so she shook for an hour after they finally stopped. But once they did stop, the campground was again quiet and peaceful. We camped at Partridge Hollow Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Dixie Caverns Campground, Salem, Virginia

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

I'm not sure what the reason is that campgrounds have to be so darn close to the Interstate highways and their exit ramps, but this one topped them all. Yes, it's nice to exit from the highway and immediately pull into a campground entrance, but it's also nice to get a good nights rest free from excessive highway noise. And there was quite a bit of noise, so if you are a light sleeper, don't expect much. Yes, I knew it was close to the highway, but it was at the halfway point home, and I didn't see many other options to choose from and I was tired from driving, so we stopped. Where is Wal-Mart when you need them? When we pulled in the main campground driveway, the entire place looked dreary and in need of some spring cleaning, maintenance, and sprucing up. At first I thought the rest room building had a band of yellow caution tape around it, but it was just the paint peeling off of the doors and the overall dirty, dingy look of the building. We didn't venture inside the building. The sites were OK, but not very level, and the utilities were fine. There were a number of seasonal campers around the grounds, some of which needed a good cleaning and tidying up. I must say that the staff member that checked us in was informative and welcoming. I think that was the only positive aspect of the entire stay. I doubt if we would ever stay there again. We camped at Dixie Caverns Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Cades Cove Campground (NPS Campground), Townsend, Tennessee

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $10.00
Overall Rating:      

If you come to Cades Cove Campground in the heart of the Smoky Mountains and you are not prepared, then don't blame the park or the rangers or the bears. There is NO sewer or water or electric at the individual sites and there is no Wi-Fi or cable TV or cell service. But then who comes to the Smokey Mountains to watch television or stream movies? If you do, then you are missing one of the wonders of the world. Yes, we filled our fresh water tank the day before we arrived, and dumped the gray and black tanks at the commercial campground the night before. We made sure the single 12 volt battery on the trailer was fully charged and the gas bottles topped off. And then we had fun with nature! We were there for three nights during the week prior to Memorial Day so it was almost like we had the campground to ourselves. It was exceptionally quiet and very peaceful. And the folks we spoke to were there for the same reason as we...to see nature at its best. The restrooms were clean and very usable. Yes, the site we chose took a little maneuvering to get our 24 foot travel trailer backed in, but this is not the place you want to bring your 50 foot mega camper. Unfortunately we didn't see any bears in the campground, but on our last evenings cruise around the loop road, we saw mothers and their cubs, deer, turkeys, a fox, and a coyote. That's what camping in Cades Cove is all about. We would return in a heart-beat. We camped at Cades Cove Campground (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

Foothills RV Park, Pigeon Forge, Tennessee

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

I have come to rely on the campground ratings from this site and I have never been led astray. And the Foothills RV Park is no exception. This is a small, very peaceful wonderful campground on a small hill at the far end of Pigeon Forge. It was very clean, it was quiet, and it was very well maintained. We were one of about 7 or 8 campers staying on this particular night, which was the week prior to the Memorial Day holiday. We actually got to choose our site after registering, which I'm sure doesn't happen in season. But it's one of the advantages of traveling off season during the week. And I must say that the rest rooms were immaculately clean! I don't think I have ever been in a campground restroom that was as clean as mine at home, and this one was. Great job! My only disappointment was not from the campground, but how honky-tonk Pigeon Forge has become. OK, it's been 30 years since our last visit, but it reminded me of Ocean City in the mountains. All they need is a boardwalk and salt water taffy... We camped at Foothills RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Fort Chiswell RV Park, Max Meadows, Virginia

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

I always get a little nervous when I see a campground that is adjacent to an Interstate highway, but when I saw the 8+ rating on Fort Chiswell, I wanted to give it a try, even if it was 60 miles further than I had planned to drive that day. And I am happy to say that this CG is a gem. I don't know how they do it when it is situated less than a half-mile from busy I-81, but it was peacefully quiet all night. We even slept with the windows OPEN, and I could barely hear anything from the highway. The sites were nice, it was quiet, the utilities were good, it was quiet, we watched the cows, it was quiet, we didn't use the rest rooms, oh, and it was quiet. No question, we would be happy to stay here again, and again. We camped at Fort Chiswell RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Americamps RV Resort (formerly Richmond North / Americamps KOA), Ashland, Virginia

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $49.00
Overall Rating:      

This was our third one-night stay at Americamps over the past couple of years and I wouldn't hesitate staying here again. Yes, it is close to I-95, and yes there is highway noise, but even as a light sleeper, I had a good nights rest, without running the heat or A/C. After spending the day driving on I-95, who wouldn't need some rest? As it was just a stop-over on the way to Pennsylvania, we didn't spend any time outside talking with our neighbors, but we did do a lot of dog walking which gave us a good view of the park, which was overall very nice. We knew about the breakfast and met some very nice travelers while eating. I would not hesitate staying here again while traveling on I-95.

South of the Border, Dillon, South Carolina

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $29.00
Overall Rating:      

This was our second stop at Pedro's Campground, and I have to admit that I was glad we stopped on our way to Pennsylvania from Hilton Head Island. I am normally a light sleeper, but I hardly heard any traffic noise from I-95 and had a good nights rest. The pull-through site was extra large, the utilities were good, and the entire campground was clean and neat. I would bet that only 10% of the sites were occupied on a Friday night which made it even nicer. I would definitely stop here again. We camped at South of the Border in a Travel Trailer.

Easterlin Park Campground, Oakland Park, Florida

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

We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay at Easterlin Park Campground, except for the trains. The staff were excellent, we loved the fact that there were a ton of trees in the majority of the sites, and it was exceptionally quiet, except for the trains. Yes, as you have probably guessed, the park is next to commuter train tracks and, except for very late at night, the trains run from early morning to dark. Our plan was to stay for 2 nights, which we did, but any longer would have really affected my sleeping. If the CG was anywhere else, I would have given them all 10's.

Pecan Park RV Resort, Jacksonville, Florida

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

We only stayed at Pecan Park for one night en-route from Miami to Hilton Head. We pulled in about 10 minutes after the office closed, so we had no interaction from the staff during our stay. To me this is a very clean, very neat RV parking lot. The sites were nice, but there were no trees, so my guess is that it is very hot in the summer. Unlike other campgrounds we stayed in during this trip, the folk here didn't seem as friendly and open as in some of the other parks we camped in. But again, we were only here for one night. But the airplanes were annoying. I cannot imagine staying here on a long-term basis with jets constantly flying into and out of JAX. The first fly-over in the morning was just after 5:00 AM, so I was up for the rest of the day. Fortunately we only had 140 miles to our final destination, so I was able to catch up the next day. But I don't know how people staying here could ever get used to the noise. I guess air conditioning and ear plugs would work for some, but they don't work for me.

Jolly Roger Travel Park, Marathon, Florida

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $84.00
Overall Rating:      

Yes, these are the Florida Keys so we are a captive audience whether it's for food/groceries, souvenirs, gasoline, $4.00 per load washing machines, or campsites at campgrounds. I personally feel that paying $84.00 per night is exorbitant, but again, these are the Florida Keys and that is the going rate. So we bite the bullet and stay. That being said, I was extremely happy at Jolly Roger. The people were nice and friendly, both the long-term and short timers, the staff were helpful, and I enjoyed our morning visits with others at the Bark Park. Yes, the sites were a tad close, but we were fortunate that our neighbors were nice, outgoing, and very quiet. I tend to like CG's that cater to the long term campers, as they tend to treat the campground as they would their home, and treat others with respect. During the day we are always out and about, sightseeing, hiking, or geocaching, so we don't get the interaction that many other campers do, but that didn't change our opinion of the park. The only change I would request, is that JR find a lid for the trash can at the Bark Park to keep the odor from wafting throughout the area. Although our 24 foot travel trailer felt tiny among the monster motor homes and huge 5ers, we wouldn't hesitate staying at Jolly Roger again.

Larry & Penny Thompson Park & Campground, Miami, Florida

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

Staying here reminded me of the "Bell Curve" that we learned about in high school. The beginning and end of our stay were bad but the middle was very good. Let me elaborate. We checked in and were directed to our site. We easily backed in, even though it was on my blind side. We set up, disconnected the tow vehicle, and it was then that I saw the problem. Someone prior to our stay must have been doing repairs here, as my wife and I found finishing nails, 3" drywall screws, wood screws, metal screws, and at least 4 dozen pop rivets (used and unused) all over the macadam site. This was unacceptable! Of course we had already backed in and set up, so I spent the next hour checking my tires, 4 of which had run over this mess, and collecting what we could see. I put everything in a bag, and took it to the office. They apologized, but by that time it was too late. I had already driven on the screws and nails. I don't completely fault the campground because they can't check every site upon someone departing, but someone from the park had to see what was going on and should have reported it. The middle part of the stay was good. It is very quiet at night, even though the park is in the middle of the city, and the people were friendly. Then the other end of the Bell Curve. At 9:10 AM on our check-out day (check out is 11:00 AM), a family in a Class C stopped and indicated to me that this was their site and they wanted to know when I was leaving. I am normally out of a campground by 10 AM, but I hadn't even showered or dumped the tanks yet so I knew it was going to be at least an hour or more. What infuriates me is that the park would allow someone to check in at 9:00 AM to an occupied site when the check out time is 11:00 AM. Unfortunately, we won't be staying here again.
