Wells State Park, Sturbridge, Massachusetts

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

We booked site #39 online, based on proximity to bath house (at least, it looked that way on the map). No pictures of individual campsites on the ReserveAmerica booking site, so we were kind of winging it. We unexpectedly arrived at the campground around 10pm, after a long and grueling day on the road. The site (or what we could see of it) seemed nice, but was very unlevel, with a steep, narrow driveway. Combined with the winding, tree-lined loop road, there was no way we were going to be able to back into that site in the dark. We drove back to the camp office to hand our tag back in, ready to find a cheap motel for the night. Much to our delight, they had a pull-through site (#15), that had just been vacated minutes before we got there. So, we drove over to said site, and it was much better. We were able to pull in and get leveled relatively easily, even in the pitch-black. The site was very spacious, close to the bath house, and had a really nice view of Walker Pond through the surrounding trees. Again, we were only here for a quick overnight stop on the way home from Maine, but from what little we saw, this seemed like a nice little state park. Most sites were heavily wooded, and the pond is very pretty. Staff was also very friendly and helpful. Bath houses, were ok: roomy, well-lit, but quite old and a bit smelly. Don't think they are cleaned very often. Overall, this seemed to be a decent campground, and I wouldn't have a problem stopping overnight again if I'm traveling in the area. I would, however, opt for a pull-through site right off the bat! We camped at Wells State Park in a Tent Trailer.

Smuggler's Den Campground, Southwest Harbor, Maine

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $46.00
Overall Rating:      

Site was huge, fairly level, and well-shaded. Was kind of U-shaped. Easily fit our pop-up, TV, and screen house. Probably could have fit a tent and additional vehicle, as well. Perfect location for those traveling with small kids, as it was just a stone's throw from both the bathhouse and playground. This is a really nice, clean, well-maintained campground. They have everything, from rustic tent sites with mountain views, to a full hookup section that looks like a small-scale KOA. Camp store was well-stocked, playground and pool looked brand new, and the bath house, while old, was among the brightest and cleanest I've ever seen in a private campground. Very impressive, especially given the volume of campers staying there. They also had free hot showers, which apparently is a rarity on Mt. Desert Island. Coin-operated laundry room on-site, which was very convenient. Nice large dish washing sink on the outside of the bath house. The free Island Explorer shuttle bus also makes stops right at the office. Overall, this is a great campground, and an excellent "home base" from which to explore Acadia and Mt. Desert Island. Would not hesitate to return if we find ourselves up in Maine again. We camped at Smuggler's Den Campground in a Tent Trailer.

SW Harbor is a cute little town, with many shops, restaurants, etc. If you drive about 25 minutes to the other side of the island, you'll be in the heart of Bar Harbor, Acadia, etc. All very beautiful, and worth the trip. However, almost everywhere we went was very crowded, and we were there at the very tail end of peak season, after many kids had already gone back to school. From what I've read, and what we were told by locals, it's a mob scene during July and much of August.

Maple Hill Campsites, Bristol, Vermont

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

Definitely geared more toward tent campers, but you could definitely make it work with a smaller RV. Our site was very large, grassy, and well-shaded, with beautiful wildflowers along the perimeter, and a babbling brook running along one side. However, it was definitely not geared toward RVs. Took quite a bit of finagling to back in, and the electric box was on the "wrong" side, so we had our door facing the outer perimeter of the site, and had to walk around the camper to get to the picnic table, fire, etc. Was also quite a hike to the bath house, but we knew that going in. That all said, it was a beautiful, peaceful, spacious site, and we were able to make it work. Saw a few larger sites in the field section, which would have been easier to back into, but none of them had shade or electric. We knew the trade-offs we were making in order to have those things when booking, and were pleased with our site choice overall. This is a very small campground on a private farm, and while the setting is beautiful, there aren't many amenities. We knew that going in, and we weren't expecting the Taj Mahal. However, I was still a little taken aback by some of the facilities. Bath house was, um, quite primitive. It is solar-powered, but situated in a pretty wooded area. Was very dim inside, even when we visited during the middle of the day. There were 2 toilet stalls with plywood doors, one shower stall, and one small sink (ran out of hand soap halfway through our stay, and owner added some water to make it last a bit longer). Definitely brought me back to my days of summer camp :) While quite buggy, and not very clean overall, everything was in working order, and we were fine using it during our stay. There is a small, cute wooden playset near the bath house that could also use some TLC (one swing broken, huge wasp nest under slide). That all said, you'd be hard-pressed to find a campground in a more beautiful, peaceful, quintessentially Vermont setting. We camped at Maple Hill Campsites in a Tent Trailer.

Pocomoke River State Park / Milburn Landing, Snow Hill, Maryland

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $28.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed in the Milburn Landing Nanticoke Loop (only loop on this side of the park), site #23. The site was very large, level, and heavily shaded by loblolly pines. Nice open-ish area to the side and behind the site, where we were able to hang our hammocks and clothesline. The pines provided great shade, but little privacy between sites. The campground itself was very pretty and well laid out, but most sites were a little too close together for my tastes. I really did enjoy our particular site, but it was a bit too far from the bath house for those traveling with little kids. Camping loop also has a partial view of the river, and is steps away from the Nassawango Pavilion and tire playground (which was great for us, because we were holding our family reunion in said pavilion). Bath house was large and extremely clean; renovated within the last year. Two large shower stalls; one was a handicapped stall with the detachable shower head, which was great for showering my toddler off. Water was nice and hot, and pressure was strong. I'm assuming they had well water, as i could feel the slight "sliminess" of a water softener. There was also a nice, large dishwashing sink on the outside. Nearby pavilion and tire playground were very clean and well-maintained, with a beautiful view of the Pocomoke River. Nice dock for fishing and boat launch. This seems to be the more "quiet" side of the park; if you're looking for more on-site activities and amenities, head over to Shad Landing. Overall, we really enjoyed this park, and the setting couldn't be more beautiful. If we were to return, we would probably camp on the Shad Landing side, as it has more amenities right there, and the campsites over there seemed more private and wooded than those at Milburn. We camped at Pocomoke River State Park / Milburn Landing in a Tent Trailer.

Point Lookout State Park, Scotland, Maryland

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

Site was very level, with a nice long driveway. Right on the water, with beautiful views. Surrounded by tall marsh grass and a few pine trees, so it felt very private. Close proximity to the bathhouse. Seems like most other sites on the outside of the loop were similar (grassy setting backing to water or trees), while the sites inside of the loop were in an open, marshy field. All sites included a picnic table and fire ring with grill grate. Campground in general was very well-maintained, and saw the hosts mowing different grassy areas several times throughout our stay. Only negative was the amount of pollen that coated every surface within minutes (although I know this is a seasonal concern pretty much everywhere). We had to wipe down every single item multiple times. Bath house was very clean and well-maintained. Looks like host cleaned it several times a day. Only two shower stalls, but they were nice and roomy with fairly hot water. There was also a dishwashing nook in the bath house with nice double-sink, which is always a bonus. This park offers tons of activities and amenities, such as a huge fishing pier, camp store, canoe/kayak rental, lighthouse, historical sites, swimming beach, etc. Most of those were still closed for the season, which was fine. Still beautiful to look at, and we didn't have to fight the summer crowds. The park used to be a prison for Confederate soldiers, so lots of cool exhibits and memorials for history buffs. Again, the setting was very beautiful, but the bugs were killer. Luckily, there was a nice strong breeze blowing off the water during the vast majority of our stay. However, the second it stopped, the bugs descended on us. Mosquitoes, gnats, biting flies, you name it. If they were this bad in April, I can only imagine how awful they would be in the middle of summer. We camped at Point Lookout State Park in a Tent Trailer.

Looks like you can board a day cruise to Smith Island directly from the park during peak season, which sounds neat. This is a very rural area, and there is not much to do in the immediate vicinity. Leonardtown is about 45 minutes away, which offers all major stores. St. Mary's College is about a 20 minute drive away, and the PAX River Naval Station is about 35 minutes away.

Tuckahoe State Park, Queen Anne, Maryland

Date of Stay: November, 2016 - $28.00
Overall Rating:      

Site was heavily wooded and very private; we were surrounded by woods on three sides, and could only see our neighbors across the narrow loop road. Site included a picnic table, fire ring, grill grate and lantern post. Pad was nice and level; didn't need to use any blocks. Drive way was just long enough to accommodate our truck. Site was a little farther from the bath house than we usually prefer, but didn't really matter as we were camping sans kids this time. I loved the privacy of this site, so I didn't mind the little bit of extra walking. Almost all the sites looked relatively private, with a fair amount of trees in between, but our was on of the only sites that was truly surrounded by forest. Since we were here in November, the leaves were especially beautiful.

Facilities/Overall Park: Bath house was large, heated and extremely clean; looks recently renovated. There was also a nice large dishwashing station on the Men's side, which I love. The park itself is very quiet, pretty, and easy to get around. Lots of multi-use trails, which i believe are mostly flat, so maybe not the best for die-hard hiking enthusiasts. We took the Lake Trail down to the day-use area, and it was a very pleasant, scenic hike that took less than 20 minutes. The lake/day-use area is beautiful, with a pavilion, picnic tables, boat launch area, volleyball and large recycled-tire playground for kids. There were quite a few people out and about, more than I would have expected during November. The lake is popular for fishing, kayaking and canoeing (no swimming allowed). During the on-season, canoes and kayaks are available for rent to explore the lake and water trails in the adjacent Tuckahoe Creek. Would love to come back in the summer to check them out. There is also a disc golf course, challenge course, and archery range on-site. We camped at Tuckahoe State Park in a Tent Trailer.

This is a very rural area. Not much to do in the immediate vicinity, except for the Adkins Arboretum. It's located on park property, but operated by an independent non-profit. The trees and walkways are beautiful, and they host a lot of workshops and special events throughout the year. Closest small town is Denton, which has a few restaurants and shops. St. Michael's, which is definitely a major Eastern Shore tourist spot, is about 45 minutes away.

New Germany State Park, Grantsville, Maryland

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $18.00
Overall Rating:      

Site was very large and private, surrounded by beautiful forest. Plenty of room for our pup, TV, pop-up gazebo, and gear. We were right in front of the bath house, which was convenient, but the light was pretty bright at night. We were also the closest site to the loop entrance, so we could hear some traffic along the main park road. Didn't bother us too much, but I imagine it would have been pretty noisy if we'd been there during peak summer season. Camping loop overall was nice and quiet, though; we had two neighbors while we were there, and barely saw nor heard anything from either of them.

This park is absolutely gorgeous. Easily the most beautiful MD State Park we've visited. Everything, from the forest, to trails, to lake, to Meadow Mountain, is a camper/outdoor enthusiast's dream. The fall foliage made everything even more beautiful. Apparently, the park is very popular amongst cross-country skiers in the winter, especially since they have full-service cabins and a warming hut by the lake. I'm not into cold weather at all, but I imagine I would love to spend a day by the lake in the summer time. Said lake area also has a concession stand, boat rentals, swimming beach, rec hall, and nature center, but these were all closed since we were there out of season.

Bath house in our loop was old and small, but kept very clean. I never used the shower, as it was too cold, but it looked adequate. LOTS of spiders, which don't really bother me, but definitely a nightmare for arachnophobes. We drove through the two other, non-pet-friendly loops, which were also beautiful. Sites were spacious and private, just like in our loop, but with the addition of tall pines. Saw mostly tent campers, and a few small TTs. We camped at New Germany State Park in a Tent Trailer.

There seem to be only 2 attractions in Grantsville, and we visited both. The first is Hill Top Fruit Market, which is a really neat store with extremely cheap produce, nuts, and spices, plus a huge selection of bulk weigh & pay candy. The other area attraction was Penn Alps and Spruce Forest Artisan Village, right next to the beautiful Casselman River Bridge. There is an artisan village, restaurant, concert venue, ice cream, etc. near by.

Knoebels Amusement Resort, Elysburg, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $45.00
Overall Rating:      

The site was plenty spacious for our pup and TV, but was not level at all. In fact, none of the surrounding sites looked very level. We were right next to the bath house, which was great for being able to send our 6 year-old by herself, but pretty obnoxious as far as foot traffic was concerned. We had to ask several groups of kids not to walk through our site on the way to the bathroom.

Facilities/Overall Park: This campground was huge, and very crowded on the weekends. We arrived on a Thursday night, and pretty much had the whole place to ourselves. We were out and about during the day on Friday, and when we came back in the evening, it was packed. The place pretty much empties out during the day, as almost everyone walks over to the amusement park.Lots of families with small kids (makes sense with the amusement park), and everyone was very friendly and considerate. Only problem we had was people walking right through our campsite to get to the bathroom, as mentioned above. There is a pool, camp store and small playground on-site. Sites are well-shaded by tall pines, but very close together and not private at all. Roads are very narrow. Bath house was clean, but old. Toilets are very low to the ground. There were additional sinks with mirrors outside the bath house for hand washing/teeth brushing, as well as a nice deep dish washing sink. Overall, this is a great place for families, and the convenience of the amusement park can't be beat. If you're looking for a quiet getaway in the woods, you may want to look elsewhere. We camped at Knoebels Amusement Resort in a Tent Trailer.

Obviously, the main draw for this campground is the amusement park on site, which boasts free admission and parking (you pay for rides with tickets). It was very clean, beautifully maintained, with friendly staff and great food options. Was surprisingly inexpensive, too. Since the park was closed on our first full day there, we took the kids to the children's museum (which was awesome), then the Bloomsburg Fair. The amount of vendors, rides, games and food options is simply dizzying.

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

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $50.00
Overall Rating:      

This campground was huge, and very crowded. We were there in the days leading up to 4th of July, and there was not a single empty site. Our section had mostly pop-ups and mid-size travel trailers, so the sites were all grassy. However, the area with pull-through sites for big rigs was just a huge RV parking lot. All roads were very narrow and winding. We did fine with the pup, but can't imagine trying to navigate a large motorhome through there. Crowding/space issues aside, this is a really nice (albeit expensive) campground. Everything, from the grounds, to rec halls, to pool and laundry, was sparkling clean and beautifully maintained. Staff was very friendly, as well. Tons of stuff to do here, especially for families: arts & crafts, indoor movie theatre, games, civil war reenactments, wine tastings, etc. We were certainly never bored, and the kids thought they had died and gone to heaven. Bathrooms were very clean as well, and there was surprisingly never a wait for the showers. Free daily pancake breakfast is included during the on-season, which was nice. Overall, this is a really nice place, but much more of a resort than a campground in my opinion. The kids loved it, but I'll always prefer the wooded seclusion of a state or national park. However, if I was looking for a more action-packed, activities-filled "glamping" experience, I wouldn't hesitate to return. We camped at Harpers Ferry / Civil War Battlefields KOA in a Tent Trailer.

Harpers Ferry Nat'l Historic Park is right next door, which is really neat. There are also a ton of outdoor recreation opportunities nearby, from white water rafting to hiking to river tubing. We didn't take advantage of any of these, since we had our dog with us, and the kids are still a little too young for some of the "extreme" activities.

Greenbrier State Park, Boonsboro, Maryland

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $27.00
Overall Rating:      

Site was partially shaded, more private than many others in the loop, but still not very secluded. Nice and level. Hardly any space between sites. Definitely the tightest MD state park we've camped at by far. Luckily, we were there during the week, so it was not crowded at all, and reasonably quiet. Had we been there on a weekend, I can only imagine that the crowds and noise would have driven me crazy.

Facilities/Overall Park: Bath house was fine; very average as far as bugs and cleanliness. Only 2 or 3 shower stalls, IIRC; never a wait while we were there, but I imagine the lines are long on weekends. There was a relatively easy hiking trail from the campground down around the lake, with some nice, quiet little spots for fishing. To get to the sandy beach area of the lake, we drove, since we had 3 kids and a ton of crap to transport. The lake area is very nice, with tons of picnic spots in the shade. However, every single picnic table was in use, and the beach was pretty crowded, and we were there on a Wednesday! I can only imagine how packed it would be on a weekend. Despite the moderate crowds, we really enjoyed ourselves, and I think I liked it even better than the lake area at Cunningham Falls. We camped at Greenbrier State Park in a Tent Trailer.

We didn't venture outside the park, but there seems to be plenty to do in the area. Greenbrier is part of South Mountain Recreation Area, which includes a few other state forests, historic battlefield area, and even parts of the Appalachian Trail. Hagerstown and Frederick are also a short drive away, and both have everything you could want as far as restaurants, shopping, etc. are concerned.

Susquehanna State Park, Havre de Grace, Maryland

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $28.00
Overall Rating:      

Site was very shaded, and probably the most secluded feel of anywhere we've camped. Camping pad was nice and level, although the driveway was slightly sloped. One of our bunk ends extended beyond the pad into the woods, which was just fine by me. Nice amount of space in between sites. Short walk to bathouse, through the woods behind us. There were also several, very private, "walk-up" type sites for tents.

Facilities/Overall Park: Bath house was immaculate; by far the cleanest I have ever seen in a campground. Must have been recently renovated. Deer Creek day-use area was nice; had a big playground and a few pavilions. Picnic area was an open field with very little shade, and the amount of goose poop was unreal; like walking through a minefield. For that reason alone, I don't think I would host any events there. There is a little fishing pond there, which my husband and daughter enjoyed. We hiked back to the campground from here, which was a nice easy-to-moderate trail. The beginning was pretty rough for me, since I was wearing my infant son while navigating an uphill trail, but it quickly evened out. There are also plenty of areas to stop along the road in the campground, with access to the creek for wading. The water felt great, but the bottom was rather pebbly. There is a historic area in the park, with a working grist mill, mansion and other little buildings to view. Not really my thing, but was pretty neat. The views of the river are really nice from here. We camped at Susquehanna State Park in a Tent Trailer.

Site was very shaded, and quite secluded. Camping pad was nice and level, although the driveway was slightly sloped. Nice amount of space in between sites. Very short walk to bath house. Campground was relatively empty our first night (Thurs), but filled up the next day. Still, heard hardly any noises from our neighbors. Camp hosts were very friendly, and came over to introduce themselves and go over park info shortly after we checked in.

Facilities/Overall Park: Bath house was centrally located. Pretty average as far as cleanliness goes, but everything worked, and the showers were hot. Great recycled tire playground, and awesome nature center w/ turtles and various birds of prey on site in the Manor Area. If you head over to the Houck Area of the park (about a 15-20 min drive), you'll find the lake, falls, and another campground. The Houck area definitely tends to be more crowded. I can't speak to the campground, but the lake is nice, and the falls are beautiful. The hike up wasn't too strenuous, either; my husband, dog, and 5-year-old handled it just fine.

Catoctin Zoo right up the road. We didn't go, since we had our dog with us. We would have liked to see Catoctin Furnace as well, but ran out of time. There is a Weis Market about 5-10 minutes up the road, and a Family Dollar nearby as well. Believe there is also an RV dealer nearby in case you find yourself in need of parts or service. Not a whole lot to do in the area.
