Peters Pond RV Resort, Sandwich, Massachusetts

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

We had site PI17, which was a back in, with 50 AMP, water, sewer, and cable for $55/night. As previously noted, there are a lot of seasonal sites. Our site was gravel, and long enough. It was a quiet place at night, because we stayed here before the Labor Day Weekend. There are a lot of amenities including a pool, activity room, beach area at the pond, playground, and other game areas. The staff is very friendly and helpful! The security gate staff are very professional and friendly! The seasonal residents were nice too. It does have a closed in feel due to all of the trees surrounding each site. My Verizon cell wouldn't work well unless I went closer to the office. Good thing they had cable, because satellite and Over The Air would not pick up channels. We camped at Peters Pond RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Lambert's Farm Market in Sandwich, not far from Peters Pond RV Resort has great veggies, fruit, meats, soups, salads, baked goods, and the best bagels! The Sagamore Inn in Sagamore is Great! They serve delicious food and lots of It! It's not far from Peters Pond. We had Pot Roast, Fish Soup, and an Antipasta Salad...all were so delicious and fresh!! We went to Sesuit Harbor Cafe, and the Lobster Roll was not that great and very expensive...very overrated! Wish we would have gone back to the Sagamore Inn instead to eat! Buy some Beach Plum Jelly from Tobey Farm in Dennis...it is delicious!!

Melville Pond Campground, Portsmouth, Rhode Island

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $75.00
Overall Rating:      

We had a Good Sam discount, but it was very expensive for what you get in an RV campground. Monday through Thursday is $65, and Friday through Sunday is $75/night! We had 50 AMP electric, water, sewer, and cable. We did not use cable, but had many Over The Air Channels. The staff at Melville Ponds is very helpful and nice people. We were under the shade trees. The site was on a slant, so our 5th wheel tires on one side were off the ground to get level. It was a quiet RV campground. It is 5 miles north of Newport. There is a small laundry with 2 washers, and 2 dryers that was inexpensive. There is no pool or activity room, but they have a small playground for the kids. We did not use the restrooms or showers, so we cannot comment on them. It was the most convenient and close RV park to the Navy Base for our activities. It was just too expensive for what they provide, but I guess they can get away with it due to lack of competition. We camped at Melville Pond Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Everything in the area is very expensive, so bring your food and other items you need. Restaurants are very expensive for what you get in Newport, and not all that tasty. We were here for our Grandson's commissioning in the U.S. Navy, so we do not see a reason to return in the future.

Partridge Hollow Campground, Monson, Massachusetts

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $38.00
Overall Rating:      

The park is located in the forest off the beaten path. The highway to the park is narrow, so drive slow. The staff is so helpful and are the nicest people! We liked them all. They also take you to your camp site and assist with parking your RV after registration. It is quiet park, and very nice and clean. We had site O11, which was an excellent site with 30 AMP, water, and a grey sewer. We had a brick fireplace in a raised seating area for our campfire. There was small site lights too on posts. They have a dump station for your black tank. We relaxed and enjoyed our stay here. They have a store, pool, and activities for the kids. The laundry room was clean and inexpensive for wash and dry. There are electronic games, pool table, tv, and internet next to the laundry room. The only ding was the tree sap that got on our truck from the pines. Use the Gojo without the grit to remove it from your vehicles. We enjoyed our stay here, and we would definitely return if in the area again!

We took a trip to the Foxwoods Casino Resort in Connecticut. What a beautiful and humongous resort! We had great Chinese food here! Over 40 restaurants to choose from and an indoor 3-level outlet mall too. Only 80 minutes from Partridge Hollow. Worth the trip, and we did not gamble!

Arrowhead Marina & RV Park, Schenectady, New York

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $31.00
Overall Rating:      

We had a Good Sam discount. Our site #50 was a pull through with 50 amp/electric, no sewer. They have a dump station. Our site 50 was not level side to side, so our tires were off the ground on the right side. The sites are shady. It is a very nice rv park beside the Mohawk River with a marina. The staff is very nice and helpful. Some sites have sewer hookups. The seasonals here are friendly and nice, keeping their sites tidy. The laundry room is inexpensive and clean. You do hear train whistles at this park, so you may consider ear plugs at night. If traveling I-90 in the future, we would stay at the Arrowhead Marina RV Park again. It is a pretty rv campground. Watch the right turn as you cross the railroad tracks with your unit to the campground. We camped at Arrowhead Marina & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Frosty Acres Camping Resort, Schenectady, New York

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $48.00
Overall Rating:      

We had a 50 AMP back in Site on heavy gravel. Most of the Park are seasonal. The seasonals are not that friendly, and are cliqueish. The staff is helpful and very nice. The laundry areas are not clean, and one on the hill by the pool smells horrible. The park is quiet at night. Some sites were very unlevel, causing Rvers to use blocking on their leveling jacks. The sewer hookup was at the rear requiring a long sewer hose! We would not drive the distance or return to this park for the cost per night. They charge too much for what you get.

Sampson State Park, Romulus, New York

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $29.00
Overall Rating:      

We had a back in Site 34 in Loop 1 with 30 AMP. You have to fill up your water tank near the dump station. There is no sewer hookup. The showers and bathrooms were clean and tiled. The park is huge with a beach along Seneca Lake, biking trails, and a game room for the kids. Basketball & tennis courts, and a marina and boat launch are on the huge park grounds. The road to the camp sites is rough, so drive slow. Loops 1, 2 and 3 have better level sites. Loop 5 is horribly unlevel down by the lake. It was a quiet campsite and we enjoyed staying here. The staff was helpful and very nice. If your RV is over 12 feet high, ask for directions to the park. There is a low level train track on the way south to the park. There is an air museum on the grounds. Our site had trees for shade. If in the area again, we would definitely return to stay at Sampson State Park. We camped at Sampson State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Four Mile Creek State Park, Youngstown, New York

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $29.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed a total of 5 nights at site 76 and 85, with 30 amp power. We didn't have water hookups, so we had to fill our fresh water tank at water faucets located throughout the park. There are dump stations. The grounds are very pretty and some sites have beautiful views of Lake Ontario. It was quiet in the park at night. The office staff is very helpful and nice people. The park is a great place to stay to visit Niagara Falls, Fort Niagara, the Aquarium, Niagara Discovery Center, and the beautiful and quaint town of Lewiston. There are several shower areas in the park, as well as washers and dryers at each shower area. They have very nice playgrounds for the children. We liked this state park a lot over the other rv parks near Niagara Falls. There is plenty of room between sites. The Niagara Parkway gives you easy driving to Niagara Falls and other sites. We would definitely return to 4-Mile Creek State Park if visiting Niagara Falls again in the future. Take your state park receipt to receive free parking at Niagara Falls. New York gives you free parking at all state parks you visit by presenting your state park camping receipt. We camped at Four Mile Creek State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Thousand Trails / Kenisee Lake, Jefferson, Ohio

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

We were traveling through Ohio, and we were very grateful they had a spot for one night. It is a peaceful and quiet campground to stay at. The site was A16. We stayed here in 2016 for a few days before, and now again in 2017. There are several seasonal people who stay here for the summers, but they do provide several sites for traveling RVERS. Our site was clean and had a picnic table. There is a swimming pool, activity room eith TVs., and a small lake for fishing. Our Over-the-Air TV picked up a few TV channels. Check in was efficient, and the staff was very friendly. We had full hookups with 30 amps. All the utilities worked well. They have a clean laundry room, but we did not use it this time. It is a little pricey, but it is to be expected being a Thousand Trails. We felt safe staying here, and we would stay again while traveling I-90. We camped at Thousand Trails / Kenisee Lake in a Fifth Wheel.

Grandview Bend Family Campground, Howe, Indiana

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $17.00
Overall Rating:      

You have to make reservations. They provide Passport America and Escapees discounts. The park is clean, and the host couple that check you in are very nice people. We love seeing them each time we have stayed here, and this was our third stay. We camped in site A2 this visit, and we were very thankful for the host couple to assign us to a very nice spot. We had 30 amps and water. All our utility hookups worked great. There are dump stations, restrooms, showers, a swimming pool, a very nice playground, and tennis courts. Out our back window was a view of a soybean field. It was a quiet and restful RV campground. We went to Sturgis, Michigan for Walmart, laundromat, and diesel fuel. Sturgis is 5 miles north of Howe, Indiana. Diesel fuel is much cheaper in Sturgis, Michigan than Indiana. We are so thankful for the host couple for making sure we had a space to stay at for our 3rd visit to Grand View Bend Campground! They are the nicest people! The two improvements would be to improve the dusty interior roads by the short-term RV campers and trim the tree limbs on the route to the dump station. Our site at A2 was not as dusty as those on the line along the fence. We would definitely return for another stay if in the area in the future. We camped at Grandview Bend Family Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Burnidge Forest Preserve, Paul Wolff Campground, Elgin, Illinois

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

We stayed 3 nights in a back in with 50 amps. There is no cable, but we got 22 stations on our over-the-air antenna. Satellite reception in the newer section would be good, due to smaller trees. Some of the site water hookups are far, so have a long hose with a water filter if needed. The water hookups are shared by two campers. Site 83 was in the newer section, where the trees are not as mature as the older section, so sunny. There is a dump station. The park staff are very nice and helpful people. The grounds and restrooms are nice and clean. It is a first come first serve park; no reservations. The roads are well maintained, and you park your rv on asphalt. Grass is around your camp site, with a picnic table and fire pit. You cannot bring in firewood, and they sell firewood at a reasonable price. We rested here, as it is quiet. We camped here to be close to Big Timber Station to take the METRA train to Union Station in Chicago. It rained while we were there, and a lot of water accumulated in the grass, but did not come on to the asphalt pad for our 5th wheel and truck. Our site was level, but a few sites are unlevel. The earlier you enter the campground in the day, the better choice of camp sites. We liked this campground, and we would definitely return if in the area in the future!

There are several restaurants/fast food, and a laundromat close by off Big Timber Road. Our favorite was Jesters, where we had a delicious steak and chicken pita sandwiches.The locals love this restaurant for their sandwiches. A water taxi is right next to Union Station to take you to the Navy Pier and return you. We had great burgers at DNK? Burgers at the Navy Pier. Take the Architecture Boat Tour..awesome! Mellenium Park is very nice too!

Take the train to Chicago. Big Timber station is only 5 minutes from the campground, and is only open Monday through Friday. On Saturday and Sunday, you can take the METRA from Elgin. Riding the train was the best option for us to visit Chicago. You buy your tickets from the train staff on the train at $8. Parking lot tickets are $1.50 for the entire day for your auto. When you get to Union Station, buy your return ticket. If you don't, and you have to buy it from the train staff on the train on your return to Big Timber or Elgin, they will charge you another $5 per person.

Brown County Fairgrounds, De Pere, Wisconsin

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

We stayed 3 nights at site 6. There is 50 and 30 amp electric and water. There is a dump station. Some sites are parallel on asphalt, and others back in to the grass. It was kind of confusing. There were large shade trees at the back-in sites on the grass. The parallel sites sit on blacktop with no shade. It is first come first serve, with no host. There are so many Canada geese, and they poop all over the boat launch, the roads to the boat launch, and the camp sites opposite the boat launch on asphalt. It is a shame the county supervisor or workers in charge do nothing about all the geese poop! It reflects poorly on the county! We camped here to be close to Lambeau Field (3 miles away), and the Oneida Casino (4 miles away). It sits next to the Fox River, and there is a plant on the river that makes noise, so we had to use our ear plugs at night to sleep. There are biking trails that are nice next to the campground, as well as a very nice beach pool and park in Ashwaubenon, just down the road! The campground is very convenient to Lambeau Field, restaurants in Green Bay, Costco, and restaurants in De Pere. We would return here if visiting Green Bay in the future. We camped at Brown County Fairgrounds in a Fifth Wheel.

Overall Rating:      

We stayed 5 nights in Site 21. It was a quiet and great place to stay! It has electric, 50 amp. You have to fill up your water tank before you set up your site. There are two water spigots. There is a dump station. They have cable TV, and you have to pick up the cable box from the host. We tried hard to hook it up to our TV, but never got it to work, so we used our tailgater satellite. The campground host does not check with anyone when you arrive to see if you need anything. And, he won't help you with the cable hookup! I don't know why they have a host, because they don't do a thing for the campers, or clean the grounds. Other city employees take care of the grounds and clean the bathrooms/showers. There is a 2,000 foot deep artesian well on the grounds that you can fill your water bottles. Many locals of Washburn come each day to fill their 2 to 5 gallon jugs. The showers are dated, but they were clean when I used them. Showers are 25 cents for 3 minutes. It is spacious between campsites. There is a beach and boat launch on the grounds. Be prepared for lots of geese droppings at the beach area. They need to do something about all those geese and poop. They have a nice playground. There are walking and biking trails next to the campground. If in the area, we would return to Thompsons West End Campground. It is close to Ashland for Walmart, Culver's restaurant, fast food, and other services. We camped at Thompson West End Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed 3 nights in a pull through site #7, which was level, under some trees. The office staff was very friendly and nice! The pull through sites are closer to each other than the back in sites. Some of the back in sites were not level. It had rained before we arrived, and while we were camped at Indian Point Campground. There is not much gravel in the campsites, and no gravel or paved interior roads. As a result, it was extremely muddy in the sites and on the interior roads. Our truck was a muddy mess! The park sits next to the St. Louis River, and there is a walking path by the river. There is also a 24-mile biking paved path just outside of the park that we enjoyed with our bicycles.

Sugar Bay Resort/campground, Cohasset, Minnesota

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

This is a 55 and older RV Park. They don't offer any discounts, and the daily rate was $35.50 per night. The owners are very nice people! It was a beautiful rv park on Pokegama Lake, and very quiet and restful! The park is clean and has no duck or geese droppings like so many parks near lakes. They also have a boat launch and docks for boaters. There is no on-site store with supplies. There are men and women restrooms with showers. There are no laundry facilities, so the daily rate is a little higher than it should be. But, this is the standard for Minnesota. The rv park is close to Grand Rapids for shopping. We stayed two days, and we would have loved to have stayed longer, but we had reservations in another town/rv park. We had full hook ups with 30 amp electric. There is nice spacing between campers. We had a pull through with easy entrance and exit. The site had a concrete pad for the picnic table. We stepped from our 5th wheel on to the concrete, which was very nice. If we were ever in the area, we would definitely return to Sugar Bay Campground. We camped at Sugar Bay Resort/campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here for 2 nights, so that we were close to the North entrance to visit Itasca Lake State Park, to see the beginning watershed for the Mississippi River, and explore the park. The park hosts are very nice. It is quiet at night. We had full hooks ups and 50 amp electric. Our site was a back in. For the price, they should provide a laundry, but these are the standard prices we find in Minnesota. The bathrooms and shower are dated. There are several seasonal campers in sites, but most of them were not in the park with their 5th wheels/trailers. They return on weekends or holidays. Their sites were kept up. The road in is dirt/gravel to the park from the highway, but it is a short drive. The camp sites are on grass. We paid $35/night for full hookups. We camped at Camp Itasca in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Park Rapids is about 25-30 miles south of Camp Itasca campground. There is a convenience store and gas station before you enter Itasca Lake State Park. Itasca Lake State Park was well worth our visit. We enjoyed seeing the visitor center near the lodge. Bring your swim suits and towels to cool off in the headwaters of the Mississippi River stream at Lake Itasca. The only restaurants are in the state park, so bring food for your camper.
