Harbortown RV Resort, Monroe, Michigan

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $69.00
Overall Rating:

We love, love, love Harbortown. We've stayed here many times and plan to do so again this year. It's always clean with lots of activities. We especially love coming here at Halloween because almost everyone participates, the kids collect lots of candy, and it's hard to visit all the sites within the one hour allowed for Trick or Treat. I'm writing this review because Site #103 is the worst site that we've stayed in so far. It is an end space right across from the bathroom and showers, so that's a plus, but it borders the main road and faces ALL the car and pedestrian traffic. This is especially annoying in the evening if you have a campfire, because you will be blinded by car headlights. If you sit outside during the day, there is zero sense of privacy. The lawn area also seemed much smaller than the other end sites along the road. We will specifically ask NOT to be put in this site ever again. We camped at Harbortown RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Wapakoneta KOA, Wapakoneta, Ohio

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $69.00
Overall Rating:

This is a very nice campground. It's not the first time that we've stayed here, but it's my first review. We stayed in a deluxe patio site, which had a patio set, grill, fireplace on flagstone pavers, and a small loveseat. It was quiet, pretty, and in the middle of a farming area. They had a dog park, sluicing, and a pool. There were some Saturday activities posted, but we didn't participate. Great ice cream and soft pretzels are available, and you can order food and have it delivered to your campsite. They also deliver firewood on request, and an escort to your site is provided. T-mobile reception was good. We camped at Wapakoneta KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Kentucky Horse Park Campground, Lexington, Kentucky

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

This is a beautiful campground with the largest site spaces we've ever had at a campground. However, even though the sites are generously large, the cement pads are extremely narrow and not very long. Unfortunately, this results in people driving off the pad and leaving ruts. When it rains, as it did our second morning, there was a sea of mud on both sides of the camper. After the morning rain, the fire ring was deeply filled with water. There really wasn't enough room for both our camper and tow vehicle, and we only have a 25' travel trailer. Most people seemed to park their cars on the grass or on an angle. We had lots of shade, and it was relatively quiet for the most part. Unfortunately, our site was near an internal road, and for some reason, people towing campers were coming and going all day and into the evening. There are no pull through sites, and no sewer hookups. They will not do a pump out for you, but if you want, they will give you a business card of someone who will come to your site for $35 to do one. They won't deliver wood to your site; you have to get it yourself. A truck emptied the dumpsters at 3:00 in the morning; it was very loud and accompanied by the beeping you hear when a piece of heavy equipment is backing up. On our first morning, we heard a blaring loud speaker repeating something that was mostly unintelligible several times. I called the office and was told that it was a mandatory test announcement. It was equally unclear (and annoying) whether you were inside or outside. We camped at Kentucky Horse Park Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Laurel Lake Camping Resort, Corbin, Kentucky

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

We stayed a total of three nights here in July - one night on our way down to our furthest destination point, and two nights on the way back. On our first visit, we arrived on a Sunday evening around 6:00. There was no one there, and the gate was locked. My T-mobile cell phone service did not work, so we couldn't call. I slipped through the side of the the gate to try to find a work-camper or a long-term resident. I found a wonderful couple who had Verizon service, and they were able to call the office. The husband not only got our site number, he took us to the site and back to the gate, giving us the code so we could get in. Almost a disaster, and an unwelcome surprise after a long day, but it all worked out. I would suggest that you call before your arrival on the day you are due to arrive to get your site information as well as the gate code so that you don't have a similar experience. This is a beautiful, quiet, woodsy campground. There are paths with gravel, and dirt paths through the woods and around the little lake. The lake is open for fishing, but not swimming, and it is too small to kayak. There is no noise or light pollution, so you can see the stars. It has a general sundry store, and they have a little cafe for breakfast and dinner (nothing fancy, and we didn't use it). The other campers were some of the friendliest people I've ever met camping. It is NOT a KOA-type campground, and there are no pre-planned activities (though there is a small playground and volleyball court). There is no pool, and the campground wifi isn't very good. Our AT&T hotspot couldn't get a functioning signal. They do have a laundry and shower, and trash must be taken to a trash area. It's the kind of campground I used to visit when I went camping with my family when I was a kid and we made our own fun and great memories. This is a wonderful campground - we loved it!

Parnell Creek RV Park, Woodville, Alabama

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

It's obvious that the owners have tried very hard to make this a nice place. There is mini golf, a pool, a meeting place with a place for a fire, and a community room. I saw some people in the pool, but we didn't use it. We didn't see anyone using any of the other amenities. The park was very clean. There were some smaller trees. They had wifi, but it was spotty though sometimes useful. T-mobile reception was awful. Our AT & T hotspot worked, as did a Verizon phone. The campground is right next to a busy highway, and we could hear highway noise. The sites were narrow, so you were standing in your neighbor's site when getting something from the non-entrance side of the camper. The sites were OK on the other (entrance) side, but still narrow. The picnic tables were on the small side, seating only four people rather than the usual six seat size that we usually see. The office is only open from 1:00-5:00. They are closed on Sunday. They had a bathhouse at end of the park, as well as restrooms near the pool. Two of the four restrooms at the end of the park were unlocked when I used them, and neither of them had a soap dispenser by the sink. The laundry room was in its own building and was OK - two of the three washers worked, and there were two dryers. It was $1.50 to wash; $1.00 to dry. They tried to make it nice with a very large folding table, cart to move laundry around, and a magazine and book rack, but they were missing a chair to sit in and it had no air conditioning or fan. There was a small bench outside under an small overhang, but I wouldn't have wanted to sit there if it were raining. I ended up sitting on the floor while waiting for the laundry to finish. The impression we had was that this was an older campground that was missing a few things, but again, they appeared to be trying. We camped at Parnell Creek RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Pine Mountain RV Resort, Pine Mountain, Georgia

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $50.00
Overall Rating:

This is a beautiful, quiet campground. The trees at the sites are immature and don't offer a lot of shade at this point in time, but they are pretty. There aren't any organized activities, but there is a pool and a small playground. The roads are smooth and great for bike riding. I chose this campground because we planned to go to the Atlanta Aquarium, but it was much too far of a drive (80 minutes one way). My only complaint would be that there were a ton of flies each evening when we ate dinner, but if you eat later in the evening (after sunset), they aren't as bothersome. Wifi signal was strong, but I didn't use it because my T-mobile reception was great. There were some flat stones (flush with the ground) outside our camper that I considered a patio of sorts (they were pretty), and we had a very nice picnic table - it was square and all in one piece, made of composite material, and had four benches attached to it. We camped at Pine Mountain RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Suwannee River Rendezvous, Mayo, Florida

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $43.00
Overall Rating:

This is a rustic campground, and the owners have gone out of their way to make it charming with cute decorations. When you arrive, you should go to your pre-assigned site number rather than bringing your travel trailer to the office. The roads by the office are narrow, have room for one vehicle going in one direction, and have ragged edges. On the other hand, roads within the main campsite area are fine. There are a number of activities. We wanted to go kayaking, but you can't start after 3:00. There was a spring and a swimming pool. We didn't use the swimming pool; the spring was "refreshing" (a little on the cold side, but nice on a hot day). The free wifi was so slow as to be nonexistent. We were told they were having some problems with it when we arrived. I tried to purchase the "premium" wifi later in the evening, which you have to do from a pop up screen. I received a text message that my credit card received the charge, but I never received a password or got the service. When I last checked (the next day!) the charge was pending, so I wasn't technically charged. There was an email to contact if there were problems with the premium service, but that person didn't respond to two emails (and you have to write down the email when you register because it's difficult to get the pop up screen back to find it). There is pretty much zero T-mobile reception, though Verizon and AT & T seem to work. We had a wooden love seat bench and picnic table on the grass at our site. Restrooms were clean, and they have activities on the weekends. Activities include pigeon races and chicken poo bingo. They also have a little restaurant that is open on the weekends. We weren't there on a weekend and can't give any insight into these activities. We camped at Suwannee River Rendezvous in a Tent Trailer.

The Great Outdoors RV Nature & Golf Resort, Titusville, Florida

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $62.00
Overall Rating:

This is a huge RV resort with a golf course and a number of amenities. Our site was privately owned and rented to us for the two nights that we stayed. It was shaded by multiple trees and had a picnic table for us to use. No fires are allowed in the resort. They have a pretty elaborate dog park, complete with a wading pool, though we didn't use it. There seemed to be very few people there (perhaps because it's July in Florida). We ate outside for two nights, but those in my family who were wearing shorts and T-shirts were eaten alive by what I think were "Biting Midges," which is a tiny little gnat. You can't feel the bite until after it's over, and it really itches afterward. We used a Thermacel and it didn't help at all. Pretty miserable. I think I'm remembering the $62 rate correctly; it could have been somewhere between $62 and $65. You can print a coupon for one night free if it's your first stay and you stay for at least two nights. My overall rating was affected by the lack of fire rings and the Biting Midges. We camped at The Great Outdoors RV Nature & Golf Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Orlando NW / Orange Blossom KOA, Apopka, Florida

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

Very clean and quiet campground, somewhat on the smaller side, and the roads were a little narrow. Our site was nice, level, and had a shade tree. We couldn't hear any highway noise except for the last night when it sounded like there were loud drag races going on nearby. I think that the campground is near a small airport because we would see small planes fly over frequently. They weren't noisy, just interesting. The parking pad was a fine gravel and shell mix, and our guide suggested that we position our camper stairs just next to the concrete pad so that we wouldn't track it in as much. We still had some that made it inside the camper, but I'm sure most was left outside as a result. They also gave us a welcome note and treat for our dog. You have to put your trash out by 10:00 in the morning if you want it picked up. I forgot where the dumpster was, thinking that it was by the office. The woman who ran the office came out to greet me and had me put the trash in the back of her golf cart to dispose of, which was kind. I couldn't wash my hands afterward, because the person cleaning the restrooms had closed BOTH the men's and women's restrooms for 2 hours (11:00-1:00). My husband said that most of stalls in the men's restroom are so small that you can barely turn around; I found the women's stalls to be of average size. The campground was surprisingly empty, considering how close it is to Universal Studios (that's why we chose it), so our stay was quiet. They don't include fire rings at the site-you have to rent a portable fire pit for $5 per day. We stayed for 4 nights and rented it for 3 nights. It rained 2 of the 3 nights and we could only use it once. I think that fire pits/rings should be provided as part of the site fee. We had trouble connecting to the wifi, but we didn't call the toll free number they provided for assistance since we had our own hotspot that we could use. My T-Mobile reception was good. The mosquitoes were awful, even in the rain. We camped at Orlando NW / Orange Blossom KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Lake Park Campground, Lake Park, Georgia

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

We were given a site in the "upper" area of the campground, which is right next to a Camping World. The sites were all asphalt and level, but they were completely lacking in charm (see photo). The first site that we were assigned was too short for our travel trailer and car. We were reassigned to a site that was a bit longer. (Actually, we were reassigned twice - the first reassigned space was taken up by a storage trailer, and we had to ask again.) Shortly before we arrived, a water pipe broke in the campground, and we didn't have water for the first couple of hours. There were no trees, and our picnic table was melted in the middle (as though someone had left a hot grill on it). There were sites on a lower level, which had trees and other campers, but we weren't given a site there (even though it was a weekday and not crowded). For most of the evening, we were the only people on the upper level, which was kind of creepy since there was no gate. There was one travel trailer that appeared to be functional but not occupied. There were two obviously non-functioning trailers and a storage trailer - and us. Later in the evening, one other travel trailer arrived and was gone before we woke up. (The travel trailers that you see on the right of my photo were part of the Camping World lot.) They sold firewood, but we didn't have a fire ring in our area of the campground. There was lots of traffic noise, making it difficult to sleep. There was a swimming pool and small pond with paddle boats (we think the warning sign about alligators and poisonous snakes was probably a joke). There is a swimming pool that seemed nice (we didn't use it). There are no planned activities. The office has a few supplies, but not much. The woman who checked us in was very nice, and they do have late arrival. The grass needed to be cut around the sites on top and in the dog park. For kids who are interested in wildlife, there are frogs, toads, and lizards to be seen. We camped at Lake Park Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Cartersville / Cassville-White KOA, Cartersville, Georgia

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

This is a KOA "Journey" campground. There are no planned activities. There was one basketball hoop on an ~10 x 10 slab of concrete, a pool, and a small children's playground set. There were two fenced in dog run areas. There was no play equipment for the dogs, but it was a safe place to run without a leash. There is no trash pickup, but there is a dumpster near the office. The sites were very level, and the other campers were quiet. Our site was located near a fairly busy highway, so there were a lot of highway sounds. There was construction going on next door to the campground so we heard constant beeping sounds of the sort that you hear when heavy equipment is backing up. The beeping sounds went on well into the evening and started before 7:00 in the morning. This was not the campground's fault but it was still bothersome. Sites that are located toward the back of the campground would be much quieter. The office was marked as closed from 11:00-2:00, but it appeared closed at around 10:30 when I walked by to dump our trash and was closed at 10:55 when we wanted to stop to buy a quick ice cream on our way out. The office delivered firewood for us after we arrived (around 5:30 in the evening), and they were nice when we checked in. There was a lovely, loud chorus of what we think were Katydids in the evening that I found charming. They weren't so loud that we could hear them over the air conditioner after we went in for the night. Watch out for ticks; my daughter found one on her shoulder. This campground is OK as a pass through for the night, and I'm sure it would have been better if our site weren't near the highway. I've attached a photo that shows just how close we were - taken looking across our picnic table and over one of the dog runs. The strip approximately 1/3 of the way down from the top is the highway. We camped at Cartersville / Cassville-White KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Dayton KOA, Brookville, Ohio

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $64.00
Overall Rating:

The roads are narrow! We hit a tree and damaged the edge of our travel trailer on the way in trying to avoid someone who was parked too close to the road. Trying to get into our site was difficult. It was angled, and we parked on an uneven part of the site at the suggestion of our park guide so that our slide could open without hitting either the electrical post or going into our neighbor's site. As a result, we weren't able to completely level the trailer. The sewer hookup was approximately two feet from our neighbor's fire pit. Our fire pit was on a small flat space on top of a small hill. It would have been very easy to fall or twist an ankle in the dark. Our patio pad was on a raised cement block. It would have been easy to trip on it going up or twisting an ankle coming down in the dark. The men's restroom was pretty dirty before the morning cleaning. There was wet toilet paper hanging from the inside handicap bar and the trash bin was overflowing. On other visits, it was clean. On the positive side, there were lots of activities offered. We didn't avail ourselves because we stayed only one night. The park had beautiful, mature shade trees and was well-maintained and clean. The staff all were nice. I uploaded two photos that show everything that I've described - we were in the middle of the three spaces. You can see the how close together these sites were, the incline where the fire pit was with only a small area that was flat, as well as the raised concrete patio. The second photo shows how close the sewer hookup was to the fire pit in the site on the right. We camped at Dayton KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Port Huron KOA, Kimball, Michigan

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $50.00
Overall Rating:

This is a large RV park, and there were lots of activities to do on the holiday weekend. It appeared to be completely full (no surprise). Even so, the activity that I attended wasn't unreasonably crowded-we waited approx. 15 minutes for spray tattoos for the kids, which is typical. Despite being full, with lots of kids, it wasn't super noisy and everyone around us honored quiet time. The play equipment was monitored by staff. It was very clean for the most part, but my husband said that two of the men's restrooms were really dirty on Sunday evening. The women's restroom that I used was clean every time I used it, which is why I selected "clean" for the restrooms. They had garbage pickup, they will do a pump out for $8, and they will also deliver firewood. I liked that we were tentatively checked in on arrival by someone who walked out to greet us. That meant that there wasn't a long line (we had to go back to the office to finish the check in, but it was nice to not have to wait on arrival). We arrived later in the evening, so there may have been a line earlier. They check your license plate against your hang tag every time you return to the campground, and you have to turn in your hang tag on the way out, presumably to make sure that no one comes in who doesn't belong there. The double check on the way in takes a an extra minute or so. Our space was barely long enough for our travel trailer and tow vehicle. The roads are somewhat narrow (not wide enough for passing). The sites are pretty close together, but it's not awful. All in all, we had a very nice weekend and I would come back. I would love to reserve a deluxe space with a gazebo; they looked very nice. We camped at Port Huron KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Harbortown RV Resort, Monroe, Michigan

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $57.00
Overall Rating:

This was our third Halloween visit. Many people decorate their campsite quite elaborately, and the kids come back with a huge haul of candy. (It can be hard to get through all of the campsites during the one hour Trick or Treat unless you move quickly LOL.) Almost everyone gives away candy, though most don't decorate extensively (we didn't decorate at all). The kids' activities are nice as well and separated by younger/older age groups. Crafts during the weekend that we visited included painting pumpkins and making Halloween bags (colored nice canvas bags with markers). There was a small charge for the activities - $4 for the pumpkin painting and $7 for the canvas bags (which I thought was well worth it). They had a 50/50 raffle (drawn during the Saturday night costume party - no need to be present because they will post the winning tickets outside of the office the next day). They also had a "guess the pumpkin weight" (for adults, who can win a one-night stay), and a "guess the number of candy corn pieces" in a container for the kids (for an undisclosed prize). While we didn't use the showers this time, we have done so during two of our Halloween visits when we owned a travel trailer that didn't have its own shower. They were always clean and well-maintained. There are other things for kids to do beyond the organized activities, and they also have a small, paved walking path at the back of the campground. We camped at Harbortown RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Covert / South Haven KOA, Covert, Michigan

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $77.00
Overall Rating:

This is a really nice park. It was mostly filled the weekend we were there, even though it was after Labor Day. Lots of kids, but very quiet. There were a number of activities for the kids. Our dog enjoyed the dog park, and we appreciated the very helpful escort when we arrived. They sent me an email a day or so before our reservation date, offering us the ability to order pizza delivered to the site when we arrived. Also a nice touch.

We had a premium site, and it came with premium wifi, but I wasn't impressed with either the premium or the regular wifi. We liked our site: it had a nice gas grill, patio set, and a two-seat bench with a table in the middle by the fire pit. Very pretty.

We went to visit the dunes during our stay, and it was ~1/2 hour drive to get there. Honestly, my only complaint, and it was a pretty major annoyance, is about the weeds that had small burrs in them that grew along the park's dirt roads. Unfortunately, our dog got burrs in all of her feet before we knew that they were there. The plants themselves weren't really obvious: they looked like any other small, short weed right next to the road and the burrs were green and not obvious at all. We hadn't gone 15 steps before the dog refused to walk anymore, and we had to carry her to and pick out about 20 burrs from the fur around her feet and in between her toes while she cried. (Which of course stuck our fingers while we were trying to remove them.) I think they should mow about six inches further in from the roadway, and that would solve the problem. Once we knew they were there, we were able to walk in the middle of the road and avoid them. We camped at Covert / South Haven KOA in a Travel Trailer.
