Massey's Landing, Millsboro, Delaware

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

This is a relatively new resort on a spit of land jutting into Delaware Bay. We stayed here at discounted rate ($40!) due to participation in owner's rally with 120 rigs (which the CG accommodated extremely well). It does live up to "resort" tag, with two large separate camping areas with gated entry, wide, easy-to-navigate paved interior roads, full hook-ups, playground, dog park, sandy beach (including a separate one for dogs!), a pool with pool bar, golf cart rentals, boat launches, small café and beer/wine store, extremely well stocked camp store and very attentive staff. Grounds are very well maintained, and almost all sites we saw were level (there are some exceptions though). Sites are either paved or packed gravel/sand depending on the loop you are in. The sites also had cable TV hookups with wide variety of channels, and easily the best WiFi we have ever had in a campground, with poles/routers spread generously around the campground. Very nice bathroom/shower and laundry facilities, although for some reason there was barely any hot water in them. One drawback of the location and new campground: absolutely no shade, and the winds during storms coming in off the bay can be pretty bad. For a resort, the sites are decently spaced, with a separate parking spot provided on curb side of RV to help define your little patch of "yard" Picnic tables and fire ring are provided. Don't know if an exception was made for our large rally, but it was nice that between time we made reservations and time we stayed, they lifted their dog breed restrictions that were listed on their website. While grocery stores and gas/diesel are not far away, other area attractions like shore towns and an array of great local craft breweries are a good distance away. The normal Fall season prices of $75-$110 are a bit too high for me to plan a return trip at this time of year however, unless it was for another discounted rally price. We camped at Massey's Landing in a Fifth Wheel.

Tuckahoe State Park, Queen Anne, Maryland

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

The RV loop of this campground is heavily wooded, offering dense shade. However, the internal roads and sites are wide and easy to navigate, and there is excellent spacing between sites. The roads are paved, and the sites are level packed gravel. There is one bathroom/shower facility building serving the whole loop, which was not a problem in early October when there were few others staying there, but could get crowded in peak season. They were of average cleanliness, but the hot water supply was good. You can fill tank with fresh water at the well-positioned dump station upon entry, but it could use better signage to alert you to it. There is only 1 lane through it, so again, could get crowded in busy season. The camp store is minimally stocked, and in Fall is only open Fri-Sat-Sun. Firewood is for sale next to store on an honor system. There is no WiFi, but Verizon coverage is good. The state park has a nice frisbee golf course, and nice mixed use hiking/mountain biking trails, as well as a separate boating area on small lake. Site 32 was plenty big enough for both 33 foot RV and truck to park unhooked. Would definitely stay again, especially in off-season, when you can have place to yourself. We camped at Tuckahoe State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

LaSalle / Peru KOA, Utica, Illinois

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

This is obviously an older campground that has good and bad points. First thing you are struck by is the position of dump station, which is basically on wrong side for departing campers. However, the staff is well prepared for that, providing their own long sewer hose to pass under RV for those departing - since turning around to have it on correct side would be extremely difficult due to narrow, tight turns. Position of station would also cause extreme traffic flow backups if crowded, since using it essentially blocks. Staff is friendly and helpful. Gravel roads and sites that seemed mostly level and had decent spacing from neighbors. Glad we were not in full hook-up sites near entrance, as those are very packed together, and much less scenic than lower area of campground. However, in heavy rains, which we experienced, lower sites get a lot of puddles and standing water, especially around power/water pedestals. Grounds in lower section, with stream running through and many mature trees, were nice. Very nice bathroom/shower facility, laundry, and pool, all clean and well maintained. Great WiFi signal, one of best in trip. Verizon was merely adequate. Cable TV provided. Would stay here again; as a KOA "Journey" CG, very convenient to Interstate. We camped at LaSalle / Peru KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Hickory Hollow Campground, Rockwood, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $44.00
Overall Rating:

Friendly and helpful camp staff, moderately well stocked camp store at office. Nice wide packed gravel roads, and fairly level packed gravel sites in the transient traveler section we were in, although not much space between sites. Whole campground is nestled in a wooded mountain hollow as name implies, and views are pretty nice. Had a popular fishing pond of decent size, but a woefully small swimming pool in an out of the way spot with only a Port-A-Potty next to it. Bathroom and shower facility a bit of walk uphill, and were clean and well-maintained, as were the grounds. Don't think we had luck with their WiFi, but Verizon signal was good. While maybe not my first choice in future, would be willing to stay again if I needed to stop in area after day of driving. We camped at Hickory Hollow Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

If coming off PA Turnpike, first thing to know is don't exit at Donegal if you have bigger rig. Between narrow construction lanes (at time we were there), and a hilly, winding, narrow road posted at 10 tons max weight (which CG staff person was surprisingly unaware of when she assured me there were no weight or height restrictions coming from Donegal), do yourself favor and exit at Somerset. Once you get to CG though, as their entry sign says, you can relax.

Bikers should not miss the Greater Allegheny Passage (GAP) rail trail, easily accessed in Rockwood. Can also get diesel fuel at tiny little station/market in Rockwood, but not while towing anything.

Sauder Village Campground, Archbold, Ohio

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

We only had a 1-night stay here at an electric-only pull-through site, and left wishing we stayed longer. Very nice campground with open feel to it, as sites were reasonably spaced apart. Wide paved roads, easy turns, and fairly level gravel sites. There are 2 lanes of water tank filling stations easily accessed on way in, after you check in at the front desk of hotel. (No worries, huge parking lot out front erased any maneuvering concerns.) Easy maneuvering at dump station also. As with almost every other campground, their WiFi was too overloaded to use, but Verizon signal was strong. Very nice bathroom/shower facility. All grounds and buildings clean and well-maintained. Placement of water supply in some sites we saw was fairly odd, not always convenient. Don't think we saw any seasonal campers here, nice for a change. We camped at Sauder Village Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Fireside Campground, Lone Rock, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $43.00
Overall Rating:

Surprised there are no reviews here since 2014, happy to provide update. Their web site indicates the current owners took over this place in 2011, and are slowly converting it from seasonal-only to a mix of seasonal and transient travelers like ourselves. They recently added about 6 new 50A, full hook-up pull through sites, and we used one of them. The interior roads and sites are all packed gravel. The sites are not exactly level, so some adjustments to wheels needed. Also, there are a number of spots on roads and in the new S1-S6 sites with low or very close tree branches that should be trimmed for bigger rigs. Owner that accompanied us to our site did a little trimming as we pulled in and set up. Owners are friendly and helpful. There is no Verizon here, but their WiFi is useable, perhaps with weak signal in some areas. We got some decent TV and radio reception just using antenna here. Their bathrooms and showers are average and clean enough. Although we did not use it, the laundry facility looked like newer equipment and clean. Also, this was one of few campgrounds we had on long trip that actually encouraged and provided containers for recycling, a plus. One drawback: mosquitoes here were awful! Time of year I guess, be prepared. In these days of decreasing CG availability, nice to see a prior seasonal-only CG converted to welcome travelers. Hopefully they continue to progress on their upgrades. Thought it was a bit pricey however. We camped at Fireside Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Frank Lloyd Wright's Taliesin site in Spring Green, of course. The tourist-trap "House on The Rock" had us skeptical at first (Part 1), but were enjoying the uniqueness of it in parts 2 and 3, so do the whole tour. Cheese fans should visit Carr Valley Cheese shop in Mazomanie. Devil's Lake State Park is also pretty scenic, with some awesome steep rocky hikes to bluffs and views, but be aware it gets utterly packed on weekends.

Oasis Campground and Waterpark (formerly Hancock/ Stevens Pt South KOA, Hancock, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $59.00
Overall Rating:

This is a great, newer campground, and one of best out of 13 we stayed at in trip. It is one of KOA's "Journey" campgrounds, meant to be near interstates as handy stop over points, but we spent 4 nights there in order to span 4th of July holiday. However, you do pay a premium for it. Friendly and helpful staff, clean and well maintained grounds, buildings and pool, nice wide roads and sites that are level and easy to maneuver, and most appeared to be pull-throughs. Well-stocked camp store, firewood delivery and on-site trash pick-up, new laundry facility, even a pretty decent fireworks show at camp for the holiday! We were in a primo site that even had a concrete pad. Only minor complaints were that their WiFi was dysfunctional (Verizon signal very good though), and constant faint highway noise from I-39. As noted by others, no cable TV connection, and supermarkets are not nearby. We camped at Oasis Campground and Waterpark (formerly Hancock/ Stevens Pt South KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Bikers should definitely check out the excellent Green Circle Trail in Stevens Point, and gardeners must stop at very close by the beautiful Hancock Agricultural Station demonstration gardens. Birder? Then make the drive to Necedah NWR, and see whooping cranes and red-headed woodpeckers, among others (we went twice!)

Fort Wilkins Historic State Park, Copper Harbor, Michigan

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

Note this campground has two separate sections, East and West. This review is for our site in the East campground. This is electric-only campground, typical of State Parks. But, dump station, and location to fill your fresh water tanks is in the West campground...which you need to pass to get to East campground, which is also where main check-in is. Good to know especially if you have big rig, since maneuvering the roads, and the dump station, is very tight, especially if attempting U-turn out of it back to East CG. Better to fill tank before proceeding on to check-in. Interior roads are paved, but narrow. Witnessed more than 1 medium to large sized rigs have extreme difficulty backing into sites. Packed gravel sites were mostly level, but we saw a few RV's that used substantial blocking. Good Wifi outside the bathroom/shower/laundry building, when it is working, but signal dropped rapidly away from the building. WiFi went down for 2 days while we were there. There is no Verizon signal here (we do not have booster). Bathrooms, laundry, and showers were excellent and clean. There is well-stocked camp store at Fort area between the two campgrounds. Staff was friendly. Place become utterly packed on weekend, and with tents and vehicles everywhere, narrow roads became even worse, and central area of East CG started looking like a refugee camp. But, for price and location, would still stay again ...preferably not over a weekend to avoid crowds. We camped at Fort Wilkins Historic State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Munising Tourist Park Campground, Munising, Michigan

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

The quality of your stay here will depend quite a bit on your site. Some sites, such as ours, are subject to extreme mud and standing water after heavy rains, and highway noise from Michigan Rt. 28. In addition, the placement of water and electric services is rather erratic. Our site required an extra extension cord and water hose. Interior gravel roads can be ponded with water, and our site was grass...which also meant mud. Place would really benefit from a few well-placed loads of gravel to fix up roads and sites. 4 wheel drive was required by us, and a few neighboring campers, to get units in and out of sites in our area of campground. But...it is economical. They have small camp store in office, and showers were very good, with private rooms. Bathroom/shower facility was clean and well maintained when we were there. Campground WiFi was woefully inadequate, typical of almost all that we visited on trip, but Verizon signal is good. Might stay here again if we could get one of the great sites right on Lake Superior. We camped at Munising Tourist Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

The big attraction is obviously Pictured Rocks National lakeshore, and a cruise is well worth it, assuming you get a clear day and decent weather. If you are a birder, then Seney National Wildlife Refuge, 1 hour east, is very nice. Be prepared to deal with mosquitoes everywhere in the UP.

Aune-Osborn Campground, Sault Sainte Marie, Michigan

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

Very nice municipal CG right on the St. Marys River, which is part of the St. Lawrence Seaway...which means you get to watch large Great Lakes freighters cruise right by at close distance! Not much in way of trees here, but there is decent spacing between sites. Interior roads are paved and easily maneuvered, and sites are packed gravel and level. All sites are water/electric only, but they have a 2-lane, readily accessible dump station. Bathroom and shower facilities very nice and well maintained, with private lockable shower rooms. There is a laundry but no camp store. They have WiFi with decent signal, but was always too overloaded for our use. However, Verizon signal here is very good. Grounds are nicely maintained. Getting reservations can be a little time-consuming, as they are by phone only, and required a bit of phone tag to get live person. We did not have any rain here, so did not have standing water issues mentioned in other reviews. Would definitely stay again if in area. We camped at Aune-Osborn Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Mackinaw Mill Creek Camping, Mackinaw City, Michigan

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

Very large campground just south of downtown Mackinaw City, with mix of RV and tent sites, and cabins. Staff was all business, but friendly enough. Interior park roads were flat, sufficiently wide, packed gravel and were aggressively maintained on what appeared to be daily basis, which including spraying water to reduce dust, filling potholes, etc. Even witnessed them spraying herbicide or pesticide in and around occupied campsites...which may not be such a great idea. Sites also packed gravel and level, with reasonable spacing in area we were in. Prime locations available on Lake Huron, if you can get them. Clean, well maintained pit toilets scattered around the grounds. Amenities include camp store, pool, showers, mini-golf, and very handy shuttle service for one of the Mackinac Island ferries - they will take your bikes on the shuttle too! However, they have no laundry facility. They had pay WiFi service that we did not use. Verizon signal here is strong. Would definitely stay again and try to get site closer to water. We had a 50A, full hook-up, back-in site. We camped at Mackinaw Mill Creek Camping in a Fifth Wheel.

Indigo Bluffs RV Park & Resort, Empire, Michigan

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $65.00
Overall Rating:

This review is for the gated-access "resort" section of campground only...which appears to be a whole' nuther world from their standard camping area. Besides the gated access, the resort side features sites with manicured lawns (wonder if I will ever have a CG with automatic pop-up sprinklers outside again, LOL!), landscape pavers for the site and nice small trees, very wide paved interior roads, a little pond and benches, etc.... all meticulously maintained. One big disappointment, which I found to be a bit misleading: the building on map showing the bath house/showers/laundry is actually still under construction, resulting in NO bathrooms or showers in the resort side. As of our stay, there was no work being done on it and completion looked months away, so you might want to ask about it, especially for the premium price you will pay in the resort side. The Wifi was overloaded and useless, but Verizon signal there was strong. There is no cable TV. They pick up trash left in front of site daily, and even delivered a picnic table (free) upon request. Fire is actually a free-standing brazier, which was nice, and they deliver firewood. Staff was very friendly, they had a nice camp store and pool. We would stay again if we wanted to treat ourselves; all things considered, we enjoyed it very much. We camped at Indigo Bluffs RV Park & Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Overall Rating:

This was a fairly nice campground, with wide, all gravel roads and sites. Sites all looked pretty level. We had full hook-ups plus cable TV, and of 13 campgrounds we used on the trip this one had best, functioning WiFi by far. Verizon coverage was also good here. One note though: avoid site 22 (which we had) as it is right next to playground. Staff was friendly enough, bathrooms and pool cleaned daily and in good condition. Bathrooms and showers had good water pressure and hot water was good. Although initial entry way to grounds was not all that appealing, rest of campground appeared well maintained. Most sites are surrounded by mature pine trees. Besides pool and playground, they have some horseshoe pits, a laundry (which we did not check out or use), and a minimally stocked camp store. While there were a fair number of seasonals, there were still plenty of nice spots for travelers. I would stay again. We camped at Allendale / West Grand Rapids KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Bluegrass Campground, Swanton, Ohio

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

This was a unique little campground with character, which seemed to be very popular with local seasonal folks. The owners were very helpful, friendly, and accommodating, and even saved me a pull-through spot since I mentioned at time of reservation that I was a newbie with a fifth wheel. The interior roads are gravel and dusty, but in decent condition and just wide enough to get around in. Imagine rigs bigger than 35 feet long could have some issues though. Our site was a level, packed gravel site in the shade, but really close to our neighbors. CG was well maintained, and owners regularly make rounds on carts, picking up trash, delivering firewood, and just saying hello- even offer a "honey wagon" service for dumping tanks. Dump station access upon departure was easy. The bathroom/shower facility was clean, although with limited capacity. Verizon signal strength was great, but had no luck with campground WiFi. They have a nice little camp store too. Mosquitoes can be bad- they were when we were there. We would stay there again as a waypoint in travels, but probably not as a destination due to tight, crowded feeling. We had 30 amp water and electric site. We camped at Bluegrass Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Mountain Pines Campground (formerly Mountain Pines RV Resort), Champion, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $44.00
Overall Rating:

I am doing this review from perspective of a transient camper, as compared to a seasonal one. This park is obviously focused on serving its seasonal customers more than travelers, and it appears that the seasonal folks really like it. But I would not stay here again if I was passing through area. Negatives first: -Required to pay in full at time of reservation, and no refunds are offered if you need to cancel, only a credit to a future stay. -The mostly-gravel (with some grass and mud) sites in the transient area are pretty close together, on narrow gravel roads barely wide enough for a trailer, and minimal maneuvering room opposite your site. Plus, after heavy rains (which was case for our visit), many of sites turn in quagmire of mud and puddles. As an older review mentioned, I needed to switch truck to 4-wheel drive in order to get into site. -Once I got RV into site, there was zero space for truck, and no nearby parking area. I was able to use a nearby site because the campground transient area was not crowded when we were there. If campground is full, maneuvering here in anything 30 foot or over would be horrendous. -The bathroom/shower facilities have very limited capacity considering the size of the campground. -Kids and families on golf carts drive around and around and around the roads endlessly On the plus side: -Staff was friendly and helpful in our limited interactions, and saw them go to great lengths to assist bigger rigs squeeze into tight spots while we were there. -Grounds and bathroom/shower facilities well maintained and cleaned. -Lots of amenities, like a mammoth outdoor pool, an indoor heated pool, mini-golf, arcade/game room, basketball and tennis courts, and a laundry, which we did not use but looked clean. -Good hot water in showers, but with low water pressure. -Sites had fire rings and picnic tables. -Good Verizon 4G coverage here, but no useful WiFi Bottom line: not to our tastes, maybe it will be to others.

Nice bridge to connect directly to nearby Indian Creek Valley rail-trail bike trail. Ohiopyle State park (30 minutes south) and Fort Necessity National Battlefield (45 mins south) are good stops in area.
