Renfro Valley KOA, Mount Vernon, Kentucky

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

This was an overnight stop on way from northern OH to AL. We stopped here 6 years ago, and conditions have not changed; it is old, little used, and seeming to go down hill as an entertainment center. Talked to one gentleman who has been coming for years and he decried the slow decline. However, the older section (with a bathhouse and only 30 amp service) was fine. Sites were close but since few folks in, not a problem. Our site, though dirt, was amazingly level, WiFi worked well, and they had loads of free cable channels. Unlike last time, the gentleman checking me in gave he a cable guide, password for WiFi, and a map. Restrooms were clean and showers clean. Place needs TLC in places, but saw several groups enjoying their visit, sitting out after dinner and all were very pleasant and friendly. Clearly a good spot for an overnight on a trip, but unless you want to be there on the weekend for a concert (and the Passport America rate is not available then), it's not a destination location. We camped at Renfro Valley KOA in a Motorhome.

Jacksonville Equestrain Center, Jacksonville, Florida

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

We wanted to stay at NAS JAX but they were full. They advised we try the Equestrian Center and we called. THAT is the difficult part. It was hard to reach the right person and then, I was told to fill out the form on their web site and submit. On the form, you not only request a site, but also provide your credit card info. They then contact you by email to let you know about availability. This is a center for horse shows and other events, so they may be full. We were lucky. However, I never received confirmation and called a number of times before finally reaching the RV coordinator (who has many other tasks.) I was told security would have my info at the gate and give me a pass. Security did have a card for the RV but no idea what site. I then had to find someone to come and turn on the electric for whatever site I picked. ALL the staff were polite and helpful; they just are not used to campers coming to stay who are not associated with the events at the center. The sites are large, gravel/grass, fairly level, and well laid out. There were a number of other rigs, all associated with the horse event for that weekend and by Monday AM, we were the only RV in our area. There is a large community indoor heated pool on site and cost is under $2 per person to use the facilities. It was NOT scenic and there are no other amenities available, but since we were visiting family, we did not spend a lot of time there. Biggest problem may be making contact and making payment if you are just traveling through. However, if you are planning to be in the area, consider making reservations in advance and chatting with Candice (RV coordinator) ahead of time to get your site and be assured of a place. We camped at Jacksonville Equestrain Center in a Motorhome.

CALL in advance, preferably several days, to ensure you will have a spot and the electric will be turned on. Go to the web site and under FACILITIES, look for "RV Form" to fill out. There is security on weekends and in evenings and someone will be able to help if you "just show up" but they are NOT a campground; they are in event center with camping available.

Pickwick Landing State Park, Pickwick Dam, Tennessee

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

We arrived after 4:30 so welcome center was closed. We finally found campground after twisting past the Marina and then called the number at the gate house (also closed because of time and too early in season.) A ranger came quickly and got us registered. We took a handicapped site for my wife and got a discount (either for that, or because we are old, not sure.) It was one of the few level sites. Not only are sites not level, but many have broken asphalt and are narrow. However, the area is beautiful, well cared for, and fun. We were there to see the Shilo/Corinth battlefields and relax. Met all our needs. Disappointments though, with lack of tourist info in the welcome center, single bath house with lukewarm shower water, and poor condition of so many sites. We camped at Pickwick Landing State Park in a Motorhome.

Others have mentioned and we concur: Hagy's Catfish Hotel near Shilo battlefield had LOTS of really good food. We tried both catfish and country ham and redeye gravy. We also checked out the Outpost; lots of food at reasonable price. If you go to Corinth try the local pharmacy for an old fashioned soda fountain with huge milkshakes (they give you the container with the extra shake in it, and great burgers, phosphates, and ya gotta try a slug burger.

Champs Camp RV Park (Military FamCamp), Fort A.P. Hill Army Post, Virginia

Date of Stay: December, 2016 - $13.00
Overall Rating:      

This was a return visit. We have stayed here often when visiting family in the area. Vastly improved this year was the entrance process at the main gate. As a retiree, I only had to show my ID and my wife's driver's license. Last year I had to jump through registration hoops and then the guards never pulled up the right list so had to go through it each time I came on post. However, still needing improvement are the utilities!! Water can be problematic--low pressure at times, poor taste, and one stanchion for every two RV. That means you may need a long hose to reach the opposite side of the camper. Electric outlets don't all have a breaker when connecting. Sewers seem to be at the middle to front end of the site, so may need extension hose to dump. Still, it is a great value and the restrooms are immaculate. One night we were treated to night artillery practice and we enjoyed hearing the helos practicing landings...."Sound of Freedom." We camped at Champs Camp RV Park (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.

Indian Springs Campground, Hickory, North Carolina

Date of Stay: December, 2016 - $27.00
Overall Rating:      

Traveling to visit friends, we completed our first eastbound drive over the mountains on I-40. We had planned to boondock but decided we wanted a restful night. I called and was told no problem, come on down. Once off the interstate, it is a bit twisting and the last mile is a rough road down hill to the valley where the campground is. But once in, it was quick, easy, friendly and pleasant to register and drive to a large pull through site. There are NO RESTROOMS so you must be self contained. We'd been here several years ago and the campground is immaculate and campers/owners friendly Had level site with full hook up and good OTA reception for the TV. This was a one night only stop, but if you are weary and looking for a restful sleep OR if you want to see sights in the area, this is an excellent choice. We camped at Indian Springs Campground in a Motorhome.

Jacksonville RV Park (Military FamCamp), Jacksonville, Florida

Date of Stay: April, 2016 - $22.00
Overall Rating:      

This was our 3rd visit here and for the first time, we camped in the lower level. Shhh....it's a secret....it's nice and shady! Great back-in site and new pedestals but located mid-way in the space and not clear at the back. This made the sewer hookup dicey and slide came out close, so one basement door not easily accessible. Pull further forward, no parking room for toad; pull further back, not enough extension pipe for sewer. Minor inconvenience in the long run. GREAT WiFi service for free. Bathrooms were clean and new curtains in showers, though could use more hooks and better in-shower hangups for soap. Service was excellent; we told gentleman at check-in friends were coming next day; he made note so they could be close to us. They do NOT reserve specific spaces, but will work to accommodate your needs and desires. Really enjoy this park and we will return. We camped at Jacksonville RV Park (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.

Mulligan's for lunch (golf course/all ranks). Clam chowder a hit with everyone--as good as we've had. Breakfast, drive to Grumpy's; they serve cream CHIPPED beef on toast. Finally, if you like books, go to Chamblins Used Book Mine, about 4 miles from main gate just across river. Plan on spending at least an hour, more if you have a list of books you know you want. Pretty good chance you'll find it here.

Rambler's Rest RV, Venice, Florida

Date of Stay: April, 2016 - $26.00
Overall Rating:      

This was our 2nd visit. It's a wonderful little park with lots of full timers in Park models scattered around. There are also lots of seasonal folks. So as a transient, you get squeezed into an available slot. Ours was tight, the neighbors in a trailer on one side had previously set up a screen tent partially on our site and almost on the power/water pedestal. Someone at an adjacent campsite had taken the picnic table, so we had none. My point is: BEFORE accepting and going to a site, take the time here to drive to it and check it out. Oh, yeah, the sewer hookup was so far away, I couldn't reach it even with the extension hose I carry. Last time we were here, we had trouble finding the sewer as well. So when we come again, I will ask for 3 available sites and drive to them and look before blindly accepting. OK, that's the real downside. On the plus side, they have put a lot of money into the club house, pool, hot tub and new sewer connectors. Folks we met were all friendly and staff was very helpful. With PA rates, it is well worth the inconvenience. We will be back. We camped at Rambler's Rest RV in a Motorhome.

Third visit here and it just keeps getting better! There are more sites, all wonderful places, they now offer recycling as well as trash collection, and the club house and TV room are lovely. We stay to visit family for a few days and have always been able to get a spot at the Passport rate. We pulled in Sunday and though office was closed, our site # and key code to bathhouse were waiting in plastic sheet protector on the bulletin board. (They forgot to give me the WiFi code, but got it the next day.) Easy set up with level site and hookups well placed. The "heated" pool--not so warm. Maybe as end of season it had been turned off. LOTS of great amenities from golf driving range to TV to get togethers for guests and long term folks. We were concerned about the power lines our first time but they are not an issue. Yes, road noise has increased over the years, but not intrusive. BTW--they now have a "doggie spa" area where you can bring your pet to give them a wash and shampoo (DIY) style. Great addition for seasonals. We camped at Sandy Oaks RV Park & Mobile Home Community in a Motorhome.

Rustic Sands RV Resort Campground, Mexico Beach, Florida

Date of Stay: April, 2016 - $26.00
Overall Rating:      

This was the 4th or 5th time we have stayed. It is one of our favorite places to camp in Florida. Yep, lots of "issues" to consider that could cause you to move on: small number of showers, some needing fixed (most folks have facilities on board), sand/grass areas (you're "camping" in a "rustic" area), no cable (but reasonable over the air reception), crowded (hmm, that may be a problem.) In the years we have been coming, we have seen more sites developed, more folks coming, and more amenities provided (Tiki bar, heated pool, good laundry) and have enjoyed the folks we met. Seems their busy season has increased from mostly summer shoulder folks (Spring/Fall) to almost all year long. Only complaint this time was we asked for two sites (friends along for first time in van camper) and when we got there, those sites were taken and we were separated. We enjoy the ambiance and will be back. We camped at Rustic Sands RV Resort Campground in a Motorhome.

SO many good places to eat!! Go into Port St. Joe and visit No Name Cafe and book store. Great coffee and snacks and reasonable collection of books and tourist trinkets. We try to visit each time we are there. If you want to fix your own fish while camping, go to the Shell Shack in Mexico Beach for scallops or fish. Really tasty.

Walnut Creek RV Park, Troy, Alabama

Used this as a rest stop on the way to FL. Easy to get to and lots of space, easy and well designed hookups. We did hear road noise (not from US-231, but connector road, much of the night, racing cars) and lots of upset cows bleeting for mom all night and day. Used to use the park for Samborees and large gatherings so if full, it would be very tight. That said, it was a good deal and owner is working hard to improve facilities. Worth it at PA rates and for overnight stay. We camped at Walnut Creek RV Park in a Motorhome.

R Shaefer Heard COE, West Point, Georgia

Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $12.00
Overall Rating:      

This was our 2nd visit and it lived up to our expectations. Upon arrival, we parked our RV, took the toad and checked out available sites. (If you go on line and reserve one of the reservable sites in advance, you can skip this part.) We knew roughly where we wanted to camp, but just wanted to ensure easy access to the water and that the site would accommodate the size of our rig. Then back to the gate house to register. It was Labor Day afternoon and over 90 folks had left, so we had lots to choose from. Our site was a pull through with lovely views of the lake and grassy lawn in front with plenty of shade trees. We found the connections easy to hook up and good water pressure. Over the air TV required constant adjusting, depending on the channel we wanted, but that was only in late evenings, so not a problem. It was quiet, peaceful, and very relaxing. However, we noticed a number of vacant sites where tires had been outlined in powder; this was Comet and was done to prevent ants from getting into the coach. We did have a problem with them and though not biting, they did get in some cabinets. Staff came around several times a day, checking on sites and chatting. One volunteer came back and advised me where a departing camper had left firewood. All in all, a very peaceful and relaxing time. It IS a COE site, so don't look for sewers or wifi or cable. (That's why only a 9.) But if you want to return to camping the way it was in the 60's and 70's, this is a great experience and gets you back to nature. We camped at R Shaefer Heard COE in a Motorhome.

It was about 45 minutes to Warm Springs and the Little White House, FDR's retreat for polio rehab. The museum and tour are well worth it as is the visit to the springs (no soaking, but excellent history of polio and the cures.) There were a couple of little places to eat along the way. Callaway Gardens in a bit closer as well.

Remington Park RV Campground (Military FamCamp), Fort Drum, New York

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

This is for military (including retiree) or eligible DOD civilians only. There are RV 16 sites with one taken by the camp host (very helpful!) and there seem to be a couple of overflow sites that have FHU but not on large space nor with level concrete pad. Spaces are huge with plenty of room for tow vehicle or truck, set up screen room or have a game of croquet. Minimal noise other than standard bugle calls and occasional fly overs by helicopters. Bathhouse was large, clean and convenient. Base does recycling of standard metal, paper, plastic and glass. There are plans to get WiFi in the future, but for now you will need to use the base library (closed on Sunday) or rent "hot spot" from MWR at outrageous price. Over the air TV is minimal; could only get Watertown with two commercial stations (CBS/ABC/Fox) and PBS. Having stayed at other service campgrounds, this one is a bit pricey at $35 given the paucity of amenities. We would stay here again, if in the area.

Green Lakes State Park Campgrounds, Fayetteville, New York

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $27.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a State Park and has budget limitations. They are working on the campground in the woods so we could only go to Rolling Hills area. Some sites had water/electric and others electric only and a few no utilities. We were told we could "only" fit in a certain site though a number of the electric only sites on grass would have worked. I don't think the girl on the desk was a camper or familiar with various RVs, trailers or pop-ups. So our site was on dirt and tree roots, NOT level (we could only put out the bedroom slide), and difficult to get in. Needed extension for electric and second hose for water due to placement of the pedestal. LOTS of families with kids on bikes, walking, and having fun. Lots of folks with campfires in the evening quietly enjoying the grounds. Shower was good. Campground DOES encourage recycling. We would ONLY stay here again if on a more traditional RV site. Perhaps the wooded sites (being rehabbed as of our visit) would meet the need with level pads and FHU. We camped at Green Lakes State Park Campgrounds in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The campground is close to Syracuse with museums, SU sports, great spots to eat (don't miss The Dinosaur BBQ!), Erie Canal (both the museum and portions of the actual canal) and other recreational and educational opportunities. However, the park itself has two lakes (and golf course) worth seeing. The lakes are very green and deep, the result of glacial melt long ago and no thermal water inversion taking place. Lots of good beach right in the park and wonderful biking and hiking trails.

Twin Ells Campsites & Mobile Home Park, West Chazy, New York

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

Rate does NOT include electricity; we used $7 over 3 days in warm weather. This seemed fair. Upon check-in, you are guided to your site and the speed is "Walking speed" and they mean it and follow it. Roads are narrow and we were in a section of 90% seasonals, but that was fine. Our site was on gravel and fairly level with FHU (no cable). Our OTH antenna picked up about 7 stations, including at least 2 major networks. A park model next to us had a large wasp nest on the eave close to our site; we mentioned it to the staff in the AM as we went out and when we came back in the early afternoon, it was gone. Very attentive and caring crew! The small pool was very brisk as a natural spring ran under it, keeping the temperature down. As noted previously, it is very quiet during the week and WiFi ran well. Most folks from NY/Canada showed up Friday afternoon and it did get louder in the evening. LOTS of campfires going and friends having a good time. Checked the bath house (small) and it is a pay shower facility, so bring quarters. Campground DOES do recycling. This is NOT the same campground (care and staff wise) of some of the much earlier reviews. It is a family owned and operated facility and very well handled. We would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Twin Ells Campsites & Mobile Home Park in a Motorhome.

Hidden Valley Camping Area, Jamestown, New York

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

Rate reflects a combination of Passport America discount for 2 days and Good Sam discount for 2 days. Cross between "old-timey" and resort. Lots of amenities and very friendly folks. Roads a bit rough and bridge into park scary, but perfectly OK. Most transient sites on grass with fair amount of space and we had FHU with cable. Our cell phone (Consumer Cellular/off ATT towers) was NOT effective. WiFi was slow at times but available. Quiet hours WERE quiet, which was a treat. I had a problem with furnace and they called a gentleman who came after work, figured out the issue, went home and had a part, came back (about 25 minutes one way), and fixed furnace for $40 labor. Pool was nice (cool) but refreshing. Did not see any recycling efforts, though office said their trash hauler had discontinued doing recycles (boo-hiss). This campground is reasonably priced and close to a number of areas: Chautauqua Institute, Lilydale, Audubon Nature Center, Lucille Ball Museum, Panama Rocks. We would camp here again if we came through. We camped at Hidden Valley Camping Area in a Motorhome.
