Springfield Campground COE, Anderson, South Carolina

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $26.00
Overall Rating:      

Nicely done COE park. Reserved online at the recreation.gov website (recommend you check it out if you haven't seen it yet). Highlights: nicely engineered -- the COE skill shines through in every detail of the park. Our site for our 43' Class A was almost perfectly level. The roads through the campground were paved and wide, giving excellent access to almost all the sites. The "could be better": ANTS!!! The first morning we woke up to millions of ants in our RV. Should have read previous reviews so we could be prepared. We coated the power and water lines with vasoline (stopped them cold) and made a quick trip to the local Ace Hardware who knew exactly what we were dealing with. Armed with several types of ant insecticides and traps, two days later we've battled them to a tie. There's still a few left. The internet thing was a challenge. If you are Verizon, 2 bars max which made any kind of streaming a frustrating challenge (no cable or internet at this campground). Finally, just know there's no sewer hookups and Lake Hartwell is currently down about 15 feet so our lakeside site is now about 100 feet from the water. Our first COE park -- good enough to consider again, but we'll read reviews closely. We camped at Springfield Campground COE in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Come prepared to do battle with tiny ants (millions of them). We noticed quite a few people put out some type of white powder around their tires and hookups. Will have to ask what they're using.

Beckley Exhibition Coal Mine Campground, Beckley, West Virginia

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

We maneuvered in driving a 42 foot Class A. Disconnect your tow vehicle before coming up the hill. The street you turn on (Ewart) says "no trucks" which kind of spooked us -- it was passable but it's tight and there are longing hanging tree branches to contend with. The first site we were assigned was impossible to back into it as a large oak prevented the correct angle to needed to back in. The second one was better but it took going back and forth several times to get the right angle to auto-level. Power advertised as 30, but we got 20. We needed an extra long sewer hose as the connection is all the way of the back corner of the site. Once it, it was delightful. Shady, exercises trails, and literally next door to the coal museum. Would recommend it, but exercise patience and caution if you're in a big rig. We camped at Beckley Exhibition Coal Mine Campground in a Motorhome.

Couldn't have been happier. Close to highway, strong wifi, ample cable selection, lush surroundings, and friendly owners/staff. Good value for the money. Would stay here again. We camped at The Great Outdoors RV Resort in a Motorhome.
