Wild Duck Campground & RV Park (Adult Only), Scarborough, Maine

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

An adults only campground. My first impression was that the sites were too close together. The pull through sites are very close together. The back in sites, however, have decent separation, although there are a lot of campsites on a small plot of land. The sites are mostly dirt. About half of the fairly small campground is seasonal. The seasonal is on one side and the transient is on the other. All of the back in sites have views of a slough. Pull through sites have views of other pull through sites. Our site was dirt. Not sure I would have been happy in the rain, but it didn't rain while we were there, so I don't know. Everything, absolutely everything, was perfectly maintained and spotlessly clean. The site had been raked before we got there. That was a first for us. Our first impression wasn't all that great because of site spacing, but the place grew on us because of the cleanliness and maintenance. We camped at Wild Duck Campground & RV Park (Adult Only) in a Motorhome.

Schoodic Woods Campground, Winter Harbor, Maine

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

Fantastic newish campground in the Schoodic Peninsula section of Acadia National Park. Sites are huge, private, flat, and gravel. We were there during a massive rainstorm, and the drainage was excellent. No mud anywhere. One of the few national park campgrounds that has hookups and is big enough for big rigs. Restrooms were new. No showers. There was a note on the wall with a list of public showers (all very expensive). AT&T and Verizon were both fine. Keep in mind that the Schoodic (pronounced SKOOdic, not SHOOdic) Peninsula is about an hour's drive from the rest of Acadia, which has both advantages and disadvantages. The Schoodic side is quiet and peaceful, but most of the famous parts of Acadia are a long way away, over a traffic choked bridge. We camped at Schoodic Woods Campground in a Motorhome.

Riverbend Campground, Leeds, Maine

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

Riverbend is a park that runs along the Dead River about halfway between Lewiston and Augusta, Maine. It is a large park that is about half seasonal and half transient spaces. A section of the park is entirely seasonal, then there are occasional seasonal rentals sprinkled throughout the rest of the park. We were there the week before the park was closing for the season, and most of the seasonal rigs were already winterized. Sites are entirely grass, with water and, in the case of our site, 30 amp electric. The sites are the biggest I've seen at any park, anywhere. Really, truly spacious. For the seasonals, there seems to be little in the way of restrictions on what can be built or stored on the site, so most of the sites in the seasonal section were...how to say it...overbuilt. But that's in a section that transients will never need to go, except to do laundry. The laundry room has 2 washers and 2 dryers, and we were fighting for space, even though it was a Monday in October. The main part of the park is like a large park, with grass, trees, and the river. It's really quite lovely. The park has kayak and canoe rentals, and bass fishing in the river is apparently very good. Many of the seasonal renters have bass boats permanently on site. Showers and restrooms are nice, and everything is spotlessly clean. The owners are nice people who really care about running a nice campground. The camp store is well stocked. There's a pool, playground, and game room. Nature trails leave from the campground, and there are bike trails nearby. Highly recommended. We camped at Riverbend Campground in a Motorhome.

Cannon Mountain RV Park, Franconia, New Hampshire

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

Three major points about this park. No pets allowed. There are no trash cans. And, at least in September, the restrooms are locked. This park is basically 7 tightly packed sites with hookups at the edge of a parking lot. In the middle of some amazing scenery, the view on the four sides of our coach was...parking lot, coach, grass berm, and another coach. For $40, I would expect a lot more. What I got were a lot of rules that didn't seem to be enforced. No pets in the park, even though there were plenty of people taking their dogs on the hiking trails. Some weird rule that all 3 hookups had to be hooked up. And a guy who tried to steal my wife's phone when she took the dog for an early morning walk. Anyway, this place was just a $40 parking lot with hookups. Plenty of hiking, an aerial tram, and a small lake (with beach). Also the ski area in winter. We camped at Cannon Mountain RV Park in a Motorhome.

Little River State Park, Waterbury, Vermont

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $22.00
Overall Rating:

Vermont has got to be one of the prettiest states. Little River State Park is a beautiful park near Waterbury, in the middle of the state, next to Waterbury Reservoir. The campground is dry camping. Sites are generally large enough for smaller rigs, and a few sites are big enough for big rigs. Our site (site 4) was interesting to get into, we had to back around a corner and avoid some trees. But once we were in the site, it was level, and there was plenty of room to stretch out. The campground is heavily forested, and most sites are pretty dark. We weren't able to get our satellite radio to work. I would assume satellite dishes would have the same problem. Sites are dirt. There was a major rainstorm while we were there, that caused flooding all over the northeast. During and shortly after the storm, our campsite was a lake. Within a few hours, though, the water had drained through the sandy soil, and the storm might as well have never happened. The roads were the same way. The road leading to the park is dirt (but suddenly becomes paved at the entrance to the park). After the storm, there was no evidence of any problem from the water. Our favorite part of the stay was kayaking on the lake. The campground rents kayaks for very reasonable prices. On a nice day, it's the perfect way to experience Vermont. There's also lots of hiking, and mountain biking. We camped at Little River State Park in a Motorhome.

Camping on the Battenkill, Arlington, Vermont

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $39.00
Overall Rating:

Camping on the Battenkill is located on the edge of Arlington, VT, a cute village that is, as far as I can tell, not near anything else. The three main attractions are trout fishing (catch and release), maple syrup, and Norman Rockwell (he lived here for 14 years). The park is quite nice. It's large and the sites are spread out all over the land. When I called for a reservation, she asked whether I wanted a site by the river, in the forest, or in the open. I chose a river site, and indeed, our site was a back in site where I could have backed right into the river if I had wanted. The people at the next site were fly fishing in the river. The river and forest sites are both deeply forested. All the sites appear to be level, and look to be fairly easy to get into. Roads were dirt, and bumpier than I would have liked, but we had no trouble getting around, even after a full day of heavy rain. I watched a workman come and clean each site as campers left. About half of the sites are seasonal. The seasonal sites are in the trees, in a separate section from the transient sites. Bathrooms looked a bit scary so we didn't try them. There were a couple of washers and dryers. Also a game room that we didn't really look at. Verizon and AT&T were both good enough to stream video. We camped at Camping on the Battenkill in a Motorhome.

Glimmerglass State Park, Cooperstown, New York

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $33.00
Overall Rating:

Glimmerglass State Park is on the edge of Otsego Lake, the Glimmerglass Lake of James Fenimore Cooper's "Leatherstocking Tales." The park, and the lake it sits next to are beautiful, in that tree lined, Upstate New York way. The campground is small (39 sites). Sites are spacious, relatively flat, and have electric, gravel pads, picnic tables, fire pits, and barbecues. There's a dump station and water near the entrance. Dumpsters and restrooms are near the center of the campground, but the restrooms are not something I would use by choice. Checkin was typical New York State Park checkin. The woman behind the desk was friendly, and not only showed us where our site was on a map, but told us about activities and hiking trails. Verizon service was fine. AT&T didn't work at all. My main issue with the park was on the weekend. During the week it was quiet and half deserted, but on the weekend, the weekend crowd from the city was there. Lots of screaming kids until late at night. We camped at Glimmerglass State Park in a Motorhome.

Watkins Glen State Park, Watkins Glen, New York

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

Watkins Glen State Park is a beautiful park at the south end of Seneca Lake, in the Finger Lakes region of New York. The park is centered around a beautiful gorge that would be a mistake to miss, and the Finger Lakes area is the wine region of New York. It reminds me very much of a woodsy Napa or Sonoma. The campground is huge, about 300 widely spaced sites cut into the forest. Every site is pretty much in full shade all day. Sites in the Mohawk loop have 30 amp electric. The entire campground has occasional water spigots, and there are two dump stations. Sites are gravel and dirt. Most of the sites that are intended for RV's are fairly level, but this isn't universal. A problem with a number of the sites is that the trees make it hard to maneuver. We have a small class C, and had some difficulty wrapping our motorhome around one particular tree to get into the site (90). The roads are in similar condition. Big rigs might be able to get in, but it will be a challenge. AT&T service was good enough to stream video. Verizon was good enough for email, but that's about all. We camped at Watkins Glen State Park in a Motorhome.

Branches of Niagara Campground and Resort, Grand Island, New York

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $55.00
Overall Rating:

Branches of the Niagara is located on Grand Island, between Buffalo and Niagara Falls, about 7 miles from the US side of Niagara Falls. Grand Island is an upscale suburban area, but the campground is surrounded by trees, and it feels like you're in the country. This is as close as we would want to be to Niagara Falls, which is a city that I would not want to park in overnight. The campground appears to be fairly new. Very pretty. Mostly level gravel pads, a mix of sun and shade. Excellent tile bathrooms with free showers. Laundry facilities are $2 wash, $2 dry. A very nice camp store onsite. The women working there were all very nice and helpful. Excellent Verizon, passable AT&T. We were there during the week in mid-September, and paid $55 for a 30 amp site with power and water, which seemed a very fair price for the quality of the park. Some other reviews list much higher prices. There is a lot of very nice family related stuff here, a lake, multiple swimming pools, games, activities, etc. For families that are going to take advantage of that stuff, the higher prices might be worth it. But for people like us who are just looking for a nice place to camp while visiting the falls, anything higher than the $55 price we paid is probably too high, and we would suggest finding someplace with fewer amenities and a lower price. We camped at Branches of Niagara Campground and Resort in a Motorhome.

West Branch State Park, Ravenna, Ohio

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

The park is nice and well maintained. Most sites are electric only, and there's a dump station and water near the entrance. Sites are fairly large, with asphalt pads, picnic tables, and fire rings. Most of the pads were pretty far off level. We were not able to get completely level. One of the few state parks I've seen that has laundry machines. AT&T Service was excellent. Verizon was good enough. Weekends. Weekends are noisy family affairs. Nearly every site is pushing up against the limits for number of people, number of vehicles, number of tents, etc. Lots of kids, lots of adults, lots of dogs, lots of boats. Lots of groups from multiple campsites having parties. Lots of power boats on the lake. If you're into that kind of thing, go for it. If you're not, weekdays are much quieter. We camped at West Branch State Park in a Motorhome.

Summit Lake State Park, New Castle, Indiana

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $24.00
Overall Rating:

Summit lake is a beautiful lake east of Indianapolis. After Labor Day, he beach is closed, and most people appear to be there for the fishing. The campground is divided into two loops. The first loop is open, sunny, and relatively flat. The second is in the trees. Some sites are more level than others. All the sites appear to have power. The pads are gravel, or at least there's a bit of gravel sprinkled into the grass in each site. When we stepped out of our motorhome, we stepped into ankle deep wet grass. There are "shared" water spigots around the campground. People with long, long hoses were hooked up. There wasn't a single site in a mostly empty campground where our 25' hose would have reached, so we used the water in our tank. The electric hookups were closer than the water, but so far back from our site that we ended up using our extension cord to get power. The bathrooms were basic, but get the job done. Cell service was fine. We camped at Summit Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

Illinois State Fair Campgrounds, Springfield, Illinois

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

We ended up really liking this place. It's in the fairgrounds, on the north end of Springfield, about 3 miles straight north of the historic downtown. It's basically a bunch of power poles and hose bibs sticking out of the ground on a grassy hillside and around the edges of a couple of asphalt parking lots. 30 amp had voltage problems. 20 amp was fine. We could have also plugged into the next site, but didn't need to. A few sites have sewer, but the sewer is way back at the back of the sites, awkwardly located, and we decided to just use the dump station. Most people crowd into a single asphalt parking lot. It's flatter, and there are full hookups. Most of the rest of the campground is wildly unlevel, but if there's not an event going on, it's mostly empty, and you can do what you need to to get level. We found a flat spot off by ourselves under a big oak tree on a grassy hillside. It was quiet, private, and we had an awesome tree for company. When you arrive and pay, the manager unlocks your power pole. We arrived on Monday, which is the manager's day off, so we called the Security phone number, and the security guy unlocked the pole. Being right in town and underneath a cell tower, cell service was fine. There are lots of lights all over the place. If you're light sensitive, some parts of the park are brighter than others. Pay attention to light pole placement. The bathrooms are horrid. Stay away. We rode our bikes to the historic sites in town. About 3 miles, pancake flat. We camped at Illinois State Fair Campgrounds in a Motorhome.

Walnut Grove RV Park, Merriam, Kansas

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $41.00
Overall Rating:

This is a no frills RV Park in a residential neighborhood, not far from the big box stores on the freeway. We were in a pull through site right next to the entrance. It was a very basic 30amp gravel site, but it was the only site so far on a monthlong road trip where we didn't need a single leveling block. The sewer hookup had a small leak, so dumping wasn't fun, but we got it done without much mess. The manager was really helpful. She made sure she was out there when we drove up to help us into our site. We wouldn't stay there just to stay there, but we have relatives in Overland Park, and we will probably stay here again. For visiting that area, it's a convenient place to sleep. We camped at Walnut Grove RV Park in a Motorhome.

Clear Creek RV Park, Golden, Colorado

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $55.00
Overall Rating:

This park was weird. Picturesque location in a city park, but for a public park, the sites were tight. We had enough room to get into our site and move around, but nothing extra. Sites were relatively level. The hookups were weird. The water hookup was at the very front of the site, and down in a hole in the ground, and I wasn't able to get my blue filter hooked to it. I'm from the area and knew that the water was good, so I was okay skipping the filter, but it was still odd. There were two sewer hookups on the site, one at the very front and one in the very back. Electric was in the very back. Also, there was a power cord plugged into the 20 amp outlet. It ran through the ground and into the hole the water hookup was in, where it was apparently supposed to be plugged into something else. Both ends of the electric core were in there. There was a massive rainstorm the night we were there. In the morning, the hole was full of water and both power cord ends were submerged in the water. I was grateful for GFCI outlets. We never figured out we're the cord went. This is a city park, and there's a popular trail going right by the creek side sites, so not a lot of privacy. But there's also a nice park next door and a community center with a pool. Check in was strange. The office closes at 4 pm. We had reservations, so at 3:45, the woman from the office called us, asked us when we were going to arrive (4:15), and gave us the codes for the restrooms and showers. When we arrived, there was a traffic cone and a reserved sign blocking our site. If you're going to arrive after 4 pm, I would recommend calling and getting the door codes. We camped at Clear Creek RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tiger Run RV Resort, Breckenridge, Colorado

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $100.00
Overall Rating:

I wanted to like this park. All of my friends rave about it. It ticks all the boxes. Big sites. Big, mostly level concrete pads. Mature trees. Clean and tidy. Amenities galore. But maybe it was the proximity to the highway and the persistent highway noise. Or maybe it was that my site was at one end of the park, and the only dumpster was at the far end of a very large park, and it was a long, long walk just to dump trash. Or maybe it was the dogs tied up outside practically every rig, yapping as we walked past on the way to dump the trash. Or the low water pressure. Or the wasps that attacked my dinner. Or the mice that were brave enough to pop out during the daytime. Or maybe it was the nosy neighbor, Lucy and Desi, Long, Long Trailer vibe I got. Or the party, complete with live music, at a neighboring site, that went on for hours on a work night, that was apparently going on with the blessing of the park management. I suspect the rating would be a lot better if I hadn't had to listen to the party all evening. We were only there one night. One night was enough. We camped at Tiger Run RV Resort in a Motorhome.
