Natural Bridge / Lexington KOA, Natural Bridge, Virginia

Date of Stay: December, 2016 - $33.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed one night while passing through. Checked in just before 8pm closing, and were guided to our site. Folks working in the office and taking us to our site were very friendly.

Site was not very level as it was cut through a hill side (pull through). We did not have enough lift with us to get the TT completely level but just level enough. This would have been a concern if we were going to be there long term. As the campground was very full, I am thinking this site and the few next to us are the last ones they sell for these reasons.

Campground was nice for what we needed (a place to park and sleep for the night). Probably would stay again if our travels put us there at the time for a stop over. We camped at Natural Bridge / Lexington KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Ortona South COE, Moore Haven, Florida

Date of Stay: December, 2016 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

Very nice campground right on the water near the locks. Out of the way, this campground literally is a remote area. The neighbors are all non human. Surrounded by wildlife and cow fields for miles. There is a couple of small towns 10 or so miles in each direction.

That said, the campground is awesome and quiet. We loved it. A couple of bald eagles nesting in a tree across from our site, other wildlife all around. Campground was well maintained and very clean. Only down side for us is that the gate to cross the dam was locked as there had been recent construction and were not yet allowed to re-open it. So, we could not see the locks function. We will have to make a return trip, as this is a campground we could spend a few nights in just for peace and quiet.

We will be back. We camped at Ortona South COE in a Travel Trailer.

Big Cypress National Preserve - Midway Campground, Ochopee, Florida

Date of Stay: December, 2016 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

What a surprise. Out of the way, little noise even though it is right off of the Tamiami trail (Hwy 41). We used this as a stop-over on the way to the keys.

Electric only on each site, so you either need to travel with fresh water or fill up at the campground. Their fresh water spigot is near the dump station (but separated). Still not sure how many folks dump their tanks and then go to fill up with fresh water without hand washing.

Sites are spacious and wide open (few trees). Our site was the end of the right side as driving in and it was like we had a huge lawn for our front yard. Could only see one camper on the other side of the lake. The other sites would not have the same view.

Did not see any gators in the lake, but am sure they are there. However, a few miles down the road is the Nat'l Park observation area and there were dozens of them sunning on the beach below the observations decks. Lots of birds too. No need to take an airboat if you only want to see wildlife, just go to an observation deck.

We would stay again if in the area. We camped at Big Cypress National Preserve - Midway Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Long Key State Park (Closed temporarily), Long Key, Florida

Date of Stay: December, 2016 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

Heads up, per their website, Long Key will be closing for a year starting the fall of 2017 for beach reclamation.

Wow - where else can you park right on the ocean? Clean. The scenery was awesome!! Shallow water with sea grass that washes up. There are jelly fish and man-of-wars, so be careful. The old bathrooms/showers were 'old' and in need of updating. Still clean though. The new bathrooms down the road were very nice.

Sites vary in size (length and width), so do your homework. Each is separated from the next sites by vegetation. Each site had water & electric, however, I noticed that each pair of sites shared a central utility location at the back of the site which means for the odd numbered sites, the hook-ups were to the right (looking from the road into the sites) and the even sites were to the left. I noticed this as many motor homes had to pull straight in for even sites (versus back in) so they could hook up (or had to use extension cords and hoses). In our TT, we can only back in and do not have extension hoses/cords, but fortunately had an odd site with the hook ups to the on the utility side of the camper.

Camping at Long Key is all about being 'on the ocean', and for that, Long Key is priceless! We camped at Long Key State Park (Closed temporarily) in a Travel Trailer.

Up the Creek RV Camp, Pigeon Forge, Tennessee

Date of Stay: November, 2016 - $34.00
Overall Rating:

Clearly one of the nicest campgrounds we have stayed at. It was a great home base for our few days in the Smokey Mountains. Close to downtown Pigeon Forge, yet far enough away to be extremely quiet. Sites were very generous, most have some form of vegetation between them for separation, and each has W/E/S hook ups. No restrooms or showers on property as this is purely an RV campground. Staff was very friendly. We later discovered an accidental billing issue that was very quickly resolved over the phone. We would definitely stay here again when in the Pigeon Forge area. We camped at Up the Creek RV Camp in a Travel Trailer.

Schoodic Woods Campground, Winter Harbor, Maine

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

Campground is only 1 year old, and was designed for modern equipment. The site was HUGE! We had a trailer and reserved a site that said it was good for up to 20 feet, but the driveway was over 60 feet long. No issue getting in/or or parking the tow vehicle. Only other site we could see from our site was directly across from us. No water on the A loop, but the B loop has both W/E. Bike trail around the park was great, little traffic (unlike on main peninsula). Didn't use the ferry to Bar Harbor, but understand one is available. Got 6 or so TV channels from the antenna, and a weak WiFi from the rangers. Great trip! We camped at Schoodic Woods Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Hid'n Pines Family Campground, Old Orchard Beach, Maine

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

What can I say, other than the folks there are super super nice, it was mostly quiet (not traffic noise, but frequent train whistle), and the bath house was one of the cleanest ever! We were near to one of the bathhouses and I swear the guy was there cleaning every hour.

Some sites are tight, some spacious. They want to fit you in based on size of your rig. We were given a number of sites to look at when we checked in. No one stayed next to us so if felt larger then it would have if all the sites were full. This said, all the sites are nestled in nicely among the trees.

Pool and playground areas looked amazing, although we did not use either. We are thinking this will be a great place to come back to for a few days next summer with the grand-kids. An oddity was that the fire 'rings' were used washer drums. On the one hand, they were portable, on the other hand, they were tall and narrow, so the fire was not as visible. We will be back.

Our rate was off season and for W/E only (it had cable too, but that normally is more in the high season). They wanted to add $10./night for a sewer site when we arrived. We camped at Hid'n Pines Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

You can walk to downtown Old Orchard Beach, which was nice (about 1/2 mile - 15 minutes). Small store and hardware store a few hundred feet down the road.

Blackwoods Campground (NPS Campground), Acadia National Park, Maine

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

Acadia is awesome, . . . and if you want to stay in the park near the main areas, this is your choice. Campground was old, and some of the sites were close and had trees to navigate. The roads and turns are not 'big rig' friendly in my opinion. However, for the small/medium units, more than adequate. You can hike or bike from the campground, but plan your trip. Biking is one way on the park loop road and would be tough to get back unless you load onto the shuttle bus. We opted to drive to our bike/hiking trails and then drive back.

Some sites are set up backwards (ours was). The picnic table and fire ring were on the drivers side (utility side) of our trailer. If you like your table and campfire right outside your door ask the ranger before he assigns your site. We camped at Blackwoods Campground (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Small town near by with a store for any needed items (and the daily fresh blueberry muffins were pretty good too).

Hike up to the top of Gorham Mtn, and take a right where there is a fork in the trail, . . . way cool.

You can walk to the ocean - and we did at least once a day. Great trip.
