Atlantic Oaks Campground, Eastham, Massachusetts

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $50.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed for 5 nights during the off season (October) during a beautiful weather window. We were pleasantly surprised by the size of the sites; they are all pull-through and spacious. Although the campground is right off Route 6, it was not noisy. The sites closest to the bike trail (back of the campground) would be the quietest. We did not hook up to cable, though it was available for free. Internet / wifi was decent - not super speedy, but better than a lot of campgrounds. Restrooms were very clean and there were plenty. The showers are separate, private, and unisex. Laundry facilities are available here too. The campground has a small store selling the basic necessities, and also firewood. The staff were all pleasant and helpful. The only slight negative was the sometimes loud radio playing in the restroom facility. We could not hear it at our site, however. We camped at Atlantic Oaks Campground in a Motorhome.

The National Seashore Visitor Center is 0.5 miles south. Its worth visiting here to get information and maps for exploring the rest of the seashore and beaches. There is also a trail to walk around Nauset Marsh. The Cape Cod Rail Trail runs in back of the campground. There are plenty of stores and restaurants nearby. Provincetown, Wellfleet, Chatham, Orleans are all worth visiting and not far away. There is an Enterprise car rental in Orleans which is very convenient if you don't tow a car.

Mystic KOA, North Stonington, Connecticut

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

This is a convenient stop off I-95; it also is one of the rare campgrounds in New England that is open year-round. As we find with most KOAs, the sites are too close together. We had to listen to our neighbor's very noisy furnace all night long. Since we were there off-season, the pool wasn't open. We camped at Mystic KOA in a Motorhome.

Kiptopeke State Park, Cape Charles, Virginia

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

A very nice, large park. We were able to pick out our own site out of 3 loops that are mostly full service. A few are just electric and water. The sites appear not to be very level but if you pull up far enough, they level off. That is - the land rises up away from the road, so you have to pull back far enough to get to the level spots. This is a beautiful location with lots of trails and water access. It is right over the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel heading north. The staff was very helpful and pleasant. Bathrooms were very clean and there is a laundry facility provided as well. We camped at Kiptopeke State Park in a Motorhome.

OBX Campground, Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $50.00
Overall Rating:      

We were there during the off season so did not have many neighbors. Presumably because it was off-season, the office had limited hours. The park is in a nice location - right on the water and off the busy main drag but convenient to stores / restaurants. Its $70 in season which is pricey and the $50 off-season rate was pricey as well. The showers and restrooms are very nice and clean. We camped at OBX Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The Saltwater Grille was very nice and you could walk there from the campground. As others have said, the outside ambiance is lacking, but once inside, its very nice. The park is close to the Wright Brothers memorial which is worth visiting but note that the visitor center is under renovation until sometime in 2018. Its worth the drive through the national seashore all the way down to Cape Hatteras lighthouse and the town of Hatteras. You can take a ferry past that if you want to see it all. Jockey Ridge State park is nearby too and fun to hike up the sand dunes. You will likely see hang gliders here too getting lessons.

Cedar Point Campground USFS, Cedar Point, North Carolina

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $19.00
Overall Rating:      

This park has a fairly small number of sites. Each site is paved and has a side area with gravel for tents. The sites are well laid out so that you are not lined up with your neighbor and there is plenty of space. Some of the spots are shared - that is, separate electric panels, but shared picnic table and fire ring. Water is not available on site, but there are several spots to get water thoroughout the campground There are nice, easy trails near the campground, and there is also water access. GPS does not find the exact location of the campground so be sure to look for VFW Road, which is off of Route 58. The campground is off of VFW road. It doesn't say "Cedar Point Campground" just Croatan Forest so it can be confusing. Signage coming from the north on 58 is better than from the south. Showers are unisex and separate from the toilets. Each one is private. Water pressure is extremely low and you need to push the button every 20-30 seconds to get more water. You also need to be quite patient for hot water. There are lots of cobwebs high up in the showers and the bathrooms. No soap is provided in the bathroom and it is quite dark. The campground is in a good location for exploring Beaufort (45 minutes away). We camped at Cedar Point Campground USFS in a Motorhome.

Edisto Beach State Park, Edisto Island, South Carolina

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

We stayed in the Live Oaks campground as the beach campground is still closed from Hurricane Matthew. This is a small park and some of the sites are close together and some are like a double so friends can camp near each other. There are trails here, but only one is open due to the hurricane. The water in Edisto Beach is salty and is treated because of the excess salt. The town deems it safe to drink but the town also provides water that has gone through a reverse osmosis facility. This is available at the fire station downtown where you can get 5 gallons at a time. You have to bring your own container though as you can't hook up a hose to the spigot. The campground is about 1/2 mile from town. The town itself is pretty small but the beach is worth visiting. There is a decent Bi-Lo grocery store there, one gas station and a liquor store. We camped at Edisto Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

Huntington Beach State Park, Murrells Inlet, South Carolina

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $47.00
Overall Rating:      

This park is quite large and includes a long beautiful beach, with 3 separate access points (2 from the campground and 1 from the parking lot across from the office / store). The road into the park is long and goes over a causeway. On either side of the causeway you will see many birds (pelicans, herons, ibises, etc.) as well as a resident alligator. There are many trails throughout the park. The beach is also suitable for bike riding as it is hard packed sand and quite wide. Route 17 is busy and it can be difficult to pull in and out of the campground, especially if you have a large rig, or are towing. During the winter months, the gate is locked from 6 pm to 6 am, so if you do not arrive prior to that time, you will need the code to open the padlock. The code is changed once per month. The crazy thing is that the gate is close to the busy highway so you don't have much room to pull in. There are 3 main loops and the campground has some sites that are full service, but most are electric and water only. There are also some rustic tent sites and a back loop that is shadier. We preferred the sites along the right going in as they back up to the beach side and seem to be roomier. Those wanting satellite access and / or full service might prefer the inside loops. Most of the sites were a pretty good size. All of the interior roads are paved. They are working on one of the bathhouses (in the far loop) so that was out of service the entire time we were there (apparently the rebuild is taking 2-plus months). Thus there is high demand for toilets and showers in the 2 other bathhouses so you sometimes have to wait. They were cleaned every day but not sparkling clean and sometimes toilet paper ran out during the weekend. Sometimes there were issues with the showers not working (handle broken, etc.) These got fixed but its clear that they need some work. In spite of some negatives, its a beautiful location and we would definitely stay there again. We camped at Huntington Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

Skidaway Island State Park, Savannah, Georgia

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

A lovely park about 30 minutes outside Savannah proper. The campground has 4 loops and it was recommended that we stay in loop D which is the furthest back and most private. All the sites looked pretty spacious. There is still some tree work going on to remove trees and limbs that were destroyed during Hurricane Matthew. The bathhouse was quite clean and also includes a laundry facility. The campground has a bus that takes you downtown Savannah but only on Fridays and Saturdays. Uber does come here though and we used that to go to the visitor center and take trolley tours of the city. Beautiful city to stroll around with all the parks and nice restaurants as well as beautiful houses. We camped at Skidaway Island State Park in a Motorhome.

Manatee Springs State Park, Chiefland, Florida

Date of Stay: February, 2017 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

A very nice park. We were able to get one night at the last minute, and I think because of the late request, they gave us an ADA-rated site. The state is required to keep a number of these available each night, but by a certain time, they can let some of them go. So the end result was that we had a nice paved site. It was close to the bathrooms and for some reason, the toilet flush is so loud here, that we could here it in the RV. The park itself is lovely with many nice trails and a boardwalk down to the water where you can take a pontoon boat tour. We did not see manatees while here, but they apparently do come by. The park has a great barbecue vendor on sight - really good food. There are a few different loops in the park and most seem to have fairly spacious sites. We camped at Manatee Springs State Park in a Motorhome.

James Island County Park, Charleston, South Carolina

Date of Stay: February, 2017 - $55.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a lovely county park close to the city of Charleston. The campground is in the back of the park, so day users do not bother the campers. There are three trails within the park as well as a large pond. The whole park is very clean and well laid out. Restrooms and showers are very clean. Some sites are double so that friends can be closer together so ask when you make a reservation. The downside of this campground is that you can only make reservations by phone. This is a popular park among locals too so it gets pretty busy on the weekends. The registration office is also a store selling mostly souvenirs. We camped at James Island County Park in a Motorhome.

Downtown Charleston is worth visiting! The campground runs a shuttle bus that will take you downtown (or to Folly Beach). The downtown route drops you at the Visitor Center where you can arrange a tour and/or take free buses around town. City Market is a fun place to see!

Compass RV Park (formerly Indian Forest Campground), St Augustine, Florida

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

The people running this campground are very friendly and helpful. They are quite welcoming and want to make sure you have all the information you need about the area and also are able to get into your site, level, and hooked up to water and electric. We were led to our site by a camp host and later that evening we saw a host help our neighbor back in late at night and the host was using lights like you see in airports. Pretty amazing! We were in the front loop, close to the dog park. Because of the location, there is some road noise, but not too bad. The back loops would be quieter, I think. There is a brand-new, huge laundry facility - very clean and modern. They even have an outside laundry for pet bedding. On Saturday night, they have music and the two-man band was quite good, actually. Bathhouses were clean and fairly conveniently located. The office has a small store and also sells tickets for the trolley. The only downside was that we had to do a 3-night minimum because it was a holiday weekend. We camped at Compass RV Park (formerly Indian Forest Campground) in a Motorhome.

The campground is about 3 miles from historic St. Augustine. The campground can arrange for a bus to pick you from the campground in the morning and take you to the Old Town Trolley tours. Its a great way to travel around the town without having to worry about driving or parking and you can hop on or off anytime. The bus will take you back at the end of the day as well.

Harris Village RV Park (Adult Park), Ormond Beach, Florida

Date of Stay: February, 2017 - $60.00
Overall Rating:      

We made reservations in advance and were told there was only one spot left. Unfortunately we paid for 3 nights up front (it was a holiday weekend) and there is no refund. We only lasted one night and would have left even sooner if we could have found another spot to stay. The campground is on busy Route 1 and a little tough to find even with a GPS. We were told that we were being put in a "temporary" spot and could move the next day when another rig left. The spot we were put in was in front of someone else's trailer. The campground is small with one road (driveway in) and one out. The driveway out was actually blocked with two RVs so that there really was only one exit. Several RVs were double parked such that the RV behind could not get out. I do not know what would have happened if there was a fire or some emergency as many people could not exit easily. The worst part of our stay was that a train runs right in back of the sites many times during the day / night. It is a large train that screeches and honks the horn several times each trip. Literally it was about 10 feet away from the back of our site. I wish we had known about this in advance as the reviews were quite good. The restrooms were clean. We camped at Harris Village RV Park (Adult Park) in a Motorhome.

Sunset Isle RV Park / Motel, Cedar Key, Florida

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

Cedar Key is a nice spot on the west coast of Florida. Its off the beaten path even in high season. The campground is very close to 'downtown' Cedar Key so easy to go in and out of town. Pros: The staff and campers were very friendly. Our site backed up to the water and we had lovely sunsets. This would be a perfect spot for kayaking. A laundry facility is available. Each bathroom is unisex, private, and includes a shower. There are only 4 for the entire campground so you sometimes have to wait. A laundry facility is available. There is also a small restaurant on site open for breakfast and lunch every day but Thursday. The restaurant was okay - nothing to write home about, but certainly convenient. Cons: The sites are very close together. The sites are also sand / dirt, so its very hard to keep your RV clean. We had to move to another spot after the first night and it was under a tree that dropped a lot of litter on our rig which was quite annoying. We camped at Sunset Isle RV Park / Motel in a Motorhome.

Sumter Oaks RV Park - Escapees Rainbow Park, Bushnell, Florida

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

This is an Escapees Park and similar to other reviewers, we stopped here to take utilize the Smart Weigh program. We feel this is something everyone should do at least once. It is very thorough and you receive much more information about your rig than at a truckers weigh station. We found the campground to be one of the friendliest we have stayed at, both in terms of the people working there and the guests. There are many activities each day that you can participate in, but you are not pressured to do so. The sites are adequately sized and all have some shade and some sun. Because of it being an Escapees park, there are many long-term campers here. But we felt quite welcome. The campground is pretty quiet though we did have some road noise as others have noted. There are no picnic tables at the sites and the store has limited merchandise (t-shirts and ice cream). There are no stores or restaurants close by. We camped at Sumter Oaks RV Park - Escapees Rainbow Park in a Motorhome.

Outdoor Resorts - Melbourne Beach, Melbourne Beach, Florida

Date of Stay: February, 2017 - $60.00
Overall Rating:      

Pros: This is a beautiful ocation with swimming pools and beach access on the Atlantic side as well as the Indian River side. Each site is on cement so there are no worries about dirt coming in to your RV. There are plenty of clean swimming pools, hot tubs, restrooms, laundry, showers, tennis courts, etc. There are also lots of activities available (water aerobics, pickle ball, shuffleboard). In spite of the large number of sites, it is very quiet. Most of the residents are permanent or full-season and it is only available to those over 55. The location is not too far from stores and restaurants, but is on the quiet end of the barrier beach. Cons: There is an occasional smell from the nearby septic treatment plant depending on which way the wind is blowing. The price is high, but it is Florida waterfront in prime season. We camped at Outdoor Resorts - Melbourne Beach in a Motorhome.

The Around the World Cafe / Bakery in nearby Indiatlantic was wonderful. Breakfast took a long time but it was well worth it because everything was made to order. One of us had the crab omelette and one had the Nutella crepe - both were absolutely delicious and perfectly cooked. The owners and staff could not have been nicer.
