Camp Reinberg, Palatine, Illinois

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

This is a tiny gem in Chicagoland with a lot going for it. Only five RV sites, plus tent sites and cabins. We have only camped here in off season, $50/nite in the summer is not worth it to us when we only live 6 miles away. But they have a lot of activities in the summer, check the website and reserve early. The good: 1. It is in a forest preserve with an extensive network of hiking trails and a paved bike path. 2. The Metra station is less than 3 miles away, you can be in downtown Chicago in less than one hour. 3. Restaurants and shopping nearby at Deer Park Town Center. 4. Propane, ice, other supplies are also very close. The bad: They need to work on their logistics. Much of the information on the website is wrong, like hours and phone numbers. On some sites, the fire ring is too close to your trailer for a safe campfire. The electric hook up is on the wrong side of the pad (really). No water hook ups (oddly, they have sewer though) and no spigots. You will be hauling water, unless their hose will reach your site. They told when we reserved that we could have it (hose) for our stay but then someone pounded on our door at 9:00 at night and told us that was wrong. He did allow us to fill our fresh water tank before he took it though. This place is geared for giving an outdoors experience to locals. They have classes like Camping 101, they rent equipment like bicycles and snowshoes and even a complete tent set up with sleeping bags. If you are not local, the main reason for going there is to have a convenient way to visit Chicago. We camped at Camp Reinberg in a Travel Trailer.

Down By The River Campground, Pineola, North Carolina

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $39.00
Overall Rating:      

This place is like a pretty little tiny town of tiny houses. These are park models, also many Class A's or fifth wheels with decks and gardens. Different from the woodsy, natural campgrounds we normally visit but a nice change. They work hard on maintenance and it shows. Many permanents but everyone waves and says hello. Full hook ups and very good wifi. Easy mostly paved roads. Very level concrete pad with a picnic table and if you ask, they will bring you a portable fire pit. Plenty of grassy space between rigs. There is also a fenced in dog area to let your pup off leash. Poop bag dispensers and bins all over the campground. The laundry room is clean and has nice machines. The office sells discount tickets to Grandfather Mountain, which is only about 10 minutes away and very worthwhile. Close to all the mountain towns you might want to visit, furthest is Blowing Rock, about 40 minutes. I first I was disappointed because there is a low concrete wall between our river front site and the water. Also, there is a commercial building right across the river that is partially visible through the trees. But I found these things did not detract from our experience there at all. We camped at Down By The River Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Campfire Lodgings, Asheville, North Carolina

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

The owners are friendly and work hard to make everything just right. We had a nice site with a patio area, set back a little from the campground road. Behind the site is straight down the mountain! All on the top tier are like this. On the other side of the road, it is straight down to the tier with yurts. Very peaceful and private setting. The overlook area is nice and has a view of the French Broad River valley. Many campers gathered there to watch the sunset. The premium sites also have the view but they are closer together. But with the view, who cares? They are also almost all sun. We hiked a bit but found the trails map a little confusing. A nice walk but the view is at the campground. We met another hiker who said he saw a bear at the pond, but we did not see or hear it. The laundry room is clean and has nice machines. Did not use the bathhouse. There is a covered trash can at every site. A nice feature is that they have dog poop bag dipensers all over the campground. The internet is blazing fast. Network TV was fine. The road in is very bumpy - take it slowly. Just a note, our GPS called Old Marshall Hwy "Heavner", they are one and the same. Some background traffic noise. Sirens and railroad trains but not bad, just a little unexpected when it feels like you are so removed from civilization. We camped at Campfire Lodgings in a Travel Trailer.

Indian Creek Campground, Cherokee, North Carolina

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $33.00
Overall Rating:      

This place is all about the setting, right on Bunches Creek, and well away from the tourist traps. When I called for a reservation, he was very helpful and his recommendation was fabulous. We had site 10, spacious, wide and level. All the sites at this end are nice. Lots of fishermen on the creek, and lots of fish caught. The stream is stocked right at the campground. Someone caught a 24" trout near the bridge. Fun to watch everyone enjoying themselves. Bathhouse is old but spotless. Laundry is clean too with nice machines.  Campground is very clean, no litter at all and plenty of covered trash cans around. Two things they could do better: WiFi only at the pavilion, limited but that is to be expected in the mountains. It can be tricky to get in, and only one person knows the secret trick. Why not post instructions or at least train the office? Not everyone can get in, depends on your device. If you cannot, the best wifi we found was at Sassy Sunflowers, a cafe where Big Cove ends at Acquoni about 10 miles away. We only know this because an urgent matter came up that needed our attention so we had to go to town every day. On a related note, there is TV only at the pavilion (nice), no radio, and we could not get cell service. Again, not unexpected. The other thing is their directions. I'm happy to abandon my GPS and follow their directions but I like to know where I'm headed. So I wanted to map it first. Very difficult if you don't know the route numbers. I called but the office didn't know the route numbers either. They could at least tell you distances, "all the way through town" isn't really helpful or even accurate. Despite these aggravations, we enjoyed our time there immensely. Very friendly people. Being right on the stream was wonderful. We camped at Indian Creek Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Hurricane Creek COE, Eddyville, Kentucky

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $12.00
Overall Rating:      

Sites 1, 2, 3 ate extremely close.  Site 1's grill looking right at our utilities. Site 3 very short so their utilities right next to our truck. Easy to level, gravel. Site 4 very sloped, as are several others.   Wide field behind us, lake to the left, beach nearby. You can see the lake through the trees. But quite a bit of litter in the field. Convenient table right next to the grill. Boat ramp very steep. Sites 4 - 17 have a great sunset view but they're tight. 34 to 50 are very woodsy and more widely spaced. We camped at Hurricane Creek COE in a Travel Trailer.

Kentucky Horse Park Campground, Lexington, Kentucky

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $33.00
Overall Rating:      

This campground is nice, the roads are paved and the sites are pretty widely spaced. Our site was very level, did not need any blocks at all. The grass is a little thin on the shady sites and some had straw to cover the dirt/mud. We did not use the fire ring but it was very unlevel so cooking may have been difficult. Okay for a campfire though. We did not use the bathhouse but I checked it out: clean and huge, with a separate private little space for dressing outside the shower stall. There are 4 dump stations and leaving on a Sunday morning we had to wait only about two minutes. Even the dump station area was clean.

It was very quiet during the week and naturally a bit more noisy on the weekend (which is $2/nite more) but everyone was respectful of the 11:00 quiet time rule. We were with a group and had the pavilion for the whole time, so you might want to avoid the sites that border the pavilion: you will have people cutting through and a crowd right outside. We were all together so it was okay for us. They could have used a few more trash cans around, we had to walk to the bathhouse to dispose of our dog poop. But there was no litter around, the whole park was very clean. We camped at Kentucky Horse Park Campground in a Travel Trailer.

White River Campground, Cicero, Indiana

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

This is a great place to stay if you are passing through or live close by. The campground is well kept and attractive, and our site was very level and shaded. Plenty of space between sites. Plenty of things to do. Hook ups were fine but on the second day, our water turned very rusty. We have filters so it was okay. Our site was big enough for our 25' trailer but we had to park the truck sideways next to the road. After raining all night, it was surrounded by a huge puddle and we didn't see where there was any overflow parking. Minor inconveniences. We did have trouble with our reservation, no email confirmation. They sent one when I called but it was for a different site - basically the same, shady and on the river so that was okay. Luckily, this was during the week so availability was good. Then we decided to stay an extra night but there was someone in the site they offered. By the time they straightened it out, we were on our way out - it was well after noon check out and we didn't want sit around waiting any longer, or tie up our site if the next people came. The office people were very apologetic, very pleasant and helpful. It was unfortunate but those things happen. Their website could definitely be improved! Very scant information there.

The sites at the back end (51 through 69) are more crowded, and 51 backs up to a maintenance shed. It was nice being on the river but I thought the pond side sites were equally nice. They aerate the front pond and we saw people fishing there. The other ponds had some algae, I didn't ask if it was blue green. We camped at White River Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Assateague Island National Seashore Campground, Berlin, Maryland

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $15.00
Overall Rating:      

Superlative. Our best camping experience ever. The beach, the ocean waves, the horses, the birds. We even saw a seal sunning himself on the sand. We saw horses every day. The sites are very spacious, water and trash close by. Cannot see the ocean but you can hear the surf just over the dunes. We stayed one night on the bay side, where you can see the water, which was shallow and warm. But the bay side is very buggy, you will need repellent. The park rangers were fabulous, very friendly and willing to chat and answer all your questions. The "Pony Patrol" shows up with the horses to keep everyone safe - despite this, people manage to get bitten or kicked by being stupid. So don't be stupid. Also, put your food or anything that will even seem to be food to a horse (soap) away if you leave during the day. We saw two campsites raided by horses because people left things out. We camped at Assateague Island National Seashore Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Beacon Hill Campground (Ages16+), Intercourse, Pennsylvania

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

Nice, right in the middle of all the activity if that's what you're after. It's tight, about 15' between our door and our neighbor's utilities. But there was a small fence section with a rhododendron in front of it, so unobtrusive. The view behind our rig was pretty, rolling hills and horses. It was nice to sit in the dog run and watch the people and buggies go by. Coffee to buy and DVD's to borrow in the office, and books and magazines in the very clean laundry room.

I don't know why I was surprised that the area is so commercialized. I would recommend staying off the main drag, seek out the out lying places. Don't miss the train museum in Strasburg; I thought I would be bored but it was great - for a history buff like me.

This is a fine place for an overnight stay if you want full hook ups and wifi. We didn't try to cable. Easy, helpful check in, level site and a nearby space where we could run our dogs.

Ho-Hum RV Park, Carrabelle, Florida

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

This is not a campground to me, no vegetation, no campfires, right on a busy highway. I did not like patiently and politely waiting for the host to finish her phone call - only to have to take another call in the middle of my check in! But I liked the fast wifi (best of anyplace we stayed), cable, nice laundry facility. It was a good place to take a breath, get caught up on laundry and clean the trailer before heading off to more interesting destinations. Our site was level but right on the end next to the highway so quite a bit of traffic noise. We camped at Ho-Hum RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Low-Key Hideaway Motel and RV Resort (Adults only), Cedar Key, Florida

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

This place is charming and fun but really, it is all about the Tiki Bar. Which was great for a few days but I couldn't see spending a week here. Everyone comes to the bar from elsewhere, and we were in Site 1 so we could just step outside and find someone to chat with, visit with, drink with. Note that this is waterfront, not beachfront. The only beach in the area is the man-made one in Cedar Key. Nothing wrong with that, just don't expect to play in the water here. The views are pretty, especially at sunset. Dog friendly, meaning your dog can go into the bar. There is really no good place to walk them, no place for them to burn off a little energy. But they got a lot of attention, everyone came over to pet them. We camped at Low-Key Hideaway Motel and RV Resort (Adults only) in a Travel Trailer.

Barren River State Resort Park, Lucas, Kentucky

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

The best thing about this park was the camp host. Someone had taken our spot and then left for the day. She took us around to select any other open spot that we wanted. She was so friendly and accommodating, she made the best of a crummy situation. Still, I had quite a hike to the laundry room since all the machines at the close one were broken. Also, the dumpster was overflowing and someone cleaned fish on newspaper and just tossed it in without a plastic bag. Maybe the problem is not the management, maybe it is the clientele.

Nolin Lake State Park, Bee Spring, Kentucky

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $13.00
Overall Rating:      

This turned out to be a great time of year to visit. The price reflects a "By One Get One" discount. The lake was beautiful even though it was not yet at summer pool, plus the trees were not leafed out yet so we had a nice view of the water and rock formations. This must be on a flyway, we woke up to so many different bird songs every morning. The sites are spacious and our site was level. Our fire pit was full of ashes but someone came out right away to empty it for us. Also, the trail head is very close by, nice hiking. Only (minor) drawback is that we had no AT&T service, which is to be expected. You can get service about 3 miles up the road. We camped at Nolin Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We tried to stay here for one night on our way elsewhere. They were overfull and gave us an "overflow" site with no sewer and no wifi. Yet they did not offer a discount, so we left. If they had offered a discount we would have stayed.

We could not see much of the park because we arrived after dark. It was easy to navigate to our assigned site, which between the office and the main road. The site itself seemed to be okay for an overnight stay but the wifi did not work at all in that location. We camped at Northgate RV Travel Park in a Travel Trailer.
