While making the reservations for our short stay during the Easter Break the staff on the phone was very helpful. They asked what part of the campground I would like to be at and I joked about the pool area not thinking the pool would be open that early in the season. The pool opened Good Friday and was told my site would be near the pool. When checking in staff acted like I did not even have reservations. They looked at there site map trying to find a large enough site for my 32’ 5th wheel. The staff was more concerned with a club arriving the day I was leaving, three days later. I was given a site on Badlands Gulch where the hook-ups looked like they were an after thought. I needed over 30’ of hoses and cords to supply my unit and could not dump my tanks until the last morning and pulled the trailer up. The Campground is large and open with very little shaded sites. The roads are paved but some areas could be a wider. The sites themselves are level with gravel spots that are very close to your neighbors. The bath house was very large and clean. The pool area had 2 pools and an indoor hot tub. The store was very large with all kinds of trailer and camping needs. It also had many different gifts from the area. The food and personal needs area is small. The mini golf is a 10 hole course that is in the need of replacement not over hauling. The Metro has a bus stop near the office/store that will take you to the Metro rail line, just beware the buying and all day pass in the office. They don’t inform you that the pass starts after 9:30am, arrived at the rail line at 8:45am to find this fact out.

This was our second, but hopefully not our last, visit to Lake George Escape. The name says it all. This is truly a great escape for a weekend or a week’s vacation. The roads are a mix of dirt and asphalt, wide enough for all size rigs. Sites will meet the needs of all campers from tenter to full time RVers. The camping store has everything that you need for your stay. The shelves are well stocked with food, camping needs, and souvenirs. They have check-in down to a science. All staff members are friendly and helpful. There is an activity shop that handles all the events from arts & crafts, family sports, and equipment loans & rentals. There is so much to do here for campers of all ages. Their activities start around 8 am and go all day until about 9 pm. With all they have to offer you may not want or have to leave the campground. There are two heated pools one for the little campers and one for the bigger campers. The pools have 2 times set aside for adult swim. There is a café and bar near the pool. The café has $2.00 breakfast every morning which is a buffet with muffins, eggs, potatoes, sausage or bacon, French toast or pancakes and juice. You can’t beat the value! There are a few showers/restrooms throughout the campground, all cleaned throughout the day. The laundry room is clean with newer coin operated washers & driers. There is an arcade with a few games of change to collect tickets and win small items. If I had one complaint it would be their mini golf; it is a 9 hole course that is very out dated and needs of some TLC.

This was our first stay at the Wawaloam Campground. We stayed over the Father’s Day Weekend from Saturday through Tuesday. Wish Mother Nature was nicer to us; that would be our only complaint. You are always a little leery going to a new campground. We found this campground solely by RV Park Review. Most of the reviews were good but they give you just a small idea about the place. Our experience with Wawaloam Campground was a great one from making the reservation to heading home. All the employees are friendly and hospitable. We made a few phones calls to ask little questions about the campground and each time the person was informative. Arriving we where met at the office by a very helpful person who checked us in and gave us information about the area. The roads are a mix of paved and dirt, all wide enough for big rigs. Driving to our site I was amazed by the sizes of the sites. Being in one of the smallest states in the Union, they sure do give the largest camp sites, not just the seasonal sites but the transient sites too. Our site was unbelievable large; most other campground would have tried to make 2 or squeeze 3 sites on the same area. The store was a nice size having many campers’ needs for your stay. Their food selection could have been larger. One of our only complaints would be that the store had no hours during the week. When we stopped in the store, the workers were young ladies. All of the girls were very friendly, helpful, and happy. The campground has a large swimming pool, water slide and one of the best mini-golf courses I have seen at a campground. We have camped from Maine to Florida, East Coast to West and this is one of our top 10 if not top 5 campgrounds we have stayed at.

This is a small Campground open all year in South Jersey. This is our second time staying here, both in the off season of camping. We live near by and used it for a shake down run to start off our year, since there is a Camping World about 10 minutes away. The staff was friendly and helpful when making the reservations and checking in. There is no real store here but they do sell a small selection camping items. The Campground has a pool, fishing pond, small arcade and a batting cage. All sites are level and some with concrete pads. The ones in the front of the campground are a bit small and close together with very little shade. There are larger shaded sites in the back on the other side of the fishing pond. Bath House was clean with a laundry.

Last May we stayed here and rated it a little higher (7). The sites were large and shaded than. They are adding more sites, seasonal the way they look, on the top of the hill by cutting down most of the trees. Until the sites are finished then old sites are undefined and confusing. This trip we camped with 5 other families. One of them had to be move because of the confusion. Another had people driving golf carts and cars through his site. The store is a little small and poorly stocked for the beginning of the season. The bath house on the top hill was clean but aged.

We have been camping for 14 years and have traveled from Maine to Florida and New Jersey to California. This Campground is the biggest place we have ever stayed at. Our stay was for the week of Easter. You would think that a place so big would not take the time or go the extra mile to make sure your stay was happy. But from the time you arrive at the Front Desk you can just see how well the place is ran. The young man that checked us in was had my wife laughing after being in our truck for 11 hours. The site was wide and level with all hook-ups conveniently placed. They even had a 25 ft cable for you. The campground had a large list of services on the property; RV Center, Property rentals, golf carts rentals, Snack-bar, very large Laundromat, Rec. Center, game room, pools, (indoor heated pool) and propane delivery. All areas were clean with friendly staff. Also the store here was like walking into a super campground store, if you could not find it there, you did not need it. About the bath houses, my youngest stated that they were the cleanest she has ever seen. The only down side to this campground was; the Security and the band of disrespectful young people roaming and riding on golf carts. The park posts they have 24 hour Security. During the day you see older police cars riding around, but at night I do not remember seeing them. The young people speeding and cruising through at night , (in cars, trucks & golf carts), was like being in down town Myrtle Beach on Friday night. We had our cooler, yes full of soda, beer and wine, and my fishing tackle box stolen from our site between 7 pm and 8:30 pm. This was the first thing I have ever had stolen from us since starting camping. When I spoke to Security they made it seem that it is a regular occurrence. I also spoke with a fellow camper 3 site away whose cooler was also taken. He told me that 4 coolers were taken that night. We hope to return but we will bring extra bike locks.

This is my second stay here in 18 months. My first stay was soon after the new owner started. Glad to see not much has changed since my last stay. The owner is very helpful and friendly, along with the staff. They truly want to make sure your stay with them and around Gettysburg is enjoyable. New to the campground is a cafe open in the summer for breakfast and lunch. Sites are all gravel and fairly level.

For a newly renovated campground you think it would receive all 9’s and 10’s, but not at this campground. We tried to make reservations at their sister campground the Mt. Desert Narrows, a family campground, we were told that there were no sites available with electric, water and sewer. They told us that we would be just as happy with their other campground the New Narrows Too. They have built all new sites, Store, Bath House and Activity Center. The Too stands for too much money for their sites and activities. I guess they want to recoup their investment all in one or two seasons. When checking in, their staff asked us to walk down to check the site to see if we would be happy in it, that should have been the first clue of the things to come. The site they wanted to put us on would have had a nice view of the bay, but we would have been tripping over the water and electric hook ups at the next site. The site we picked and moved to was along and between the almost only trees in the campground. When asking the staff questions about anything they would look at us like we were the first person to ever ask any question. The store is the worse stocked store I have ever seen in my past 10 years of camping. You would be better off going down the road to the small IGA or the Wal-Mart. The camp fires they want you to enjoy is a Community Fire, very nice way to meet new people, but not enough firewood. I spoke to the staff about what if you needed more firewood, their answer was to walk to the other fire pits not being use to get the wood placed there. Their activities start and end when the staff wants them to not when they are scheduled to. Families stay far away from this one, nothing for kids to do here. Found out by a past guest that when they added all the new sites, they bulldozed over the mini-golf. All their play ground has to offer is a kid power merry-go-round and a ball catch. Oh yeah the pool does have two slides and is heated, the only good thing about this campground. They promote that they have a shuttle to Bar Harbor and the area, but the truth be told, it is operated by LL Bean. The bus takes over an hour for a 25 minute ride stopping at every campground in and around Bar Harbor, not just their two campgrounds.

Not the biggest campground but truly the friendliest. From the call to reserve your campsite to the time you leave, you are treated more the just a customer. The owners truly want to make sure your stay with them is a good one. We needed to borrow a tool to fix our vehicle and the owners not only let us use it, but delivered it to our campsite. Sites are spaced out and wide. Could be a little deeper but that is the only thing wrong with our stay. Pool was heated and cleaned every morning. Store was nicely stocked with just the necessities any camper needed.

Lots of seasonal sites at this Campground. We arrived before check-in which was not a problem. Our reservations were for on top of the hill in the wooded area. After exploring the campground we were glad we changed our site to lower field. Sites in the woods were small and cramped. Sites in the field were very large. Saving point for this campground were the staff. All were very friendly and helpful. We had a problem with our tow vehicle and staff was willing to open the tool shed for me.

Arrived at campground and was met by friendly staff. Large campground with most sites having large near level gravel sites. Nice place for families has mulitable playgrounds, fishing pond and crafts.

Have been camping at Blueberry Hill for on and off for over 7 years. We have camped in everything their from a pop-up to our now 5th wheel. We always have enjoyed staying there because of the friend staff and owners. This year after making reservation we found out it was under new management since our last stay. I have been to other place after new management or corporate run, and they seem to lost something in the change of ownership. Glad to see that the place did not change much. The staff is still helpful and friendly. The sites are sill well kept and the Bath House still clean.

Used this campground for a Co-Workers trip to Antietam National Battle Field. Arrived to find the Staff friendly and helpful, grounds to be clean and well kept. Camp site was to be river front, but due to past rain staff moved our site to a bit smaller site up hill and drier. Would return with my family if ever in the area again.
