Cannon Mountain RV Park, Franconia, New Hampshire

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

I will preface this review by saying that we stayed in site #7, on the end. This is the worst of the seven sites and greatly contributed to our negative experience. A stay in site 3, 4, or 5 may have been more enjoyable. Now, the good - flat paved site, full hookups, amazing views. Bathrooms were clean (available 9am-5pm). The bad - as noted, we were on the end site and there was an endless parade of tourists walking through our site to take pictures at the top of the hill. Truly, walking right THROUGH our site. My husband put some of our equipment at the end of our driveway to try and deter this behavior, but folks just walked around it, walked right over our mat and even left their personal items on our picnic table as they went to take pictures. Very odd. We stayed over the Columbus Day long weekend so the crowds were heavy. We understand that this is a parking lot, but the sites are clearly marked as camping sites. There was absolute no privacy or respect of the space. Far too stressful, we won't be back. Location is convenient to many area attractions but be warned - traffic in this area is HEAVY. We camped at Cannon Mountain RV Park in a Motorhome.

Pinkham Notch/Mt Washington is about 50 minutes away. Great bagel/sandwich shop in Lincoln! As noted, traffic is very heavy in this area so be patient. Closest groceries available at Mac's ( 15 minutes). Skip Sunny Day Diner in Lincoln (overpriced and sub-par food).

Clarksburg State Park, Clarksburg, Massachusetts

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

Visiting the park just one week before they close for the season. Only 3 other sites occupied this weekend. My husband grew up in the area and has fond memories of the many family camping trips to Clarksburg State Park (or Mausert's as they called it). Very small campground. Quiet. Very nice restrooms/free, HOT showers. We stayed in our Roadtrek (class B, 23') in sight 22. Fit fine but be warned lots of road noise. Next time we'll opt for site 38 or 42. The pond view sites are very nice but tents only. Price is high at $27. Office offers wood at $5/bundle. Ice, groceries, etc. just a bit up the street at Billmont's. Chilly weekend so we didn't bring the kayaks but we saw one couple canoeing. Good location for seeing all the area has to offer. We camped at Clarksburg State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Use this campground as a base for the many things to do in North Adams (Mass MOCA) and Williamstown. Mt Greylock is the tallest point in Massachusetts and a great day hike (or drive to the top in season)! Enjoy a bite and beer at the Water Street Tavern in Williamstown (a favorite spot for us!). Tunnel City Coffee offers FANTASTIC coffee and treats (Williamstown). And if you like hot dogs, well then you have to visit Jack's on Eagle Street, North Adams.

Whispering Pines Campground, Hope Valley, Rhode Island

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

We stayed off-season, just after Labor Day. This campground has LOTS of amenities and many seasonal campers. We like the added touch of having an escort show us to the site (large park and it's nice to go to the correct site on the first try when you have a camper, trailer or RV). For a family, this park is awesome. So much to do for little ones, tweens and teens alike. Train rides (under 10), mini golf, pool, bball, bocci, shuffleboard...so much! Full service rec center with ice cream socials and pancake breakfasts as well as pool tables and games. Restrooms were clean, in fact we saw them being serviced 4 times in our barely 2 night stay. Showers need some updating, for sure. Tight and dingy. The park has a heavy seasonal base but, unlike some parks we've been to, these folks were very friendly and went out of their way to say hello. One fellow camper even gave us a ride in his golf cart so we wouldn't have to carry two loads of wood to our site (quite a walk from the office). Staff was friendly and accommodating. Great campground for those who like lots of activity. A little big and busy for us - but that's just our preference and no slight on this campground. We camped at Whispering Pines Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

About 30 minutes to Misquamicut State Beach. 10 minutes to local stores, grocery, Big Lots, etc...The camp store is well stocked for basic needs (& beyond!). Might want to stop and purchase wood from a road side stand. Camp wood was expensive for a small quantity. Just be sure you are buying wood from Rhode Island and not from bordering Connecticut as you cannot bring out of state firewood to the campground.

Charlestown Breachway, Charlestown, Rhode Island

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

Location, location, location. That's what Charlestown Breachway is all about. Hard to beat being RIGHT on the ocean for $20/night. We camped in our Roadtrek and kept the back doors open at night to listen to the surf and catch the breeze. Beautiful. Fellow campers are very friendly. Convenient to beach and kayaking/fishing. Yes, space is VERY tight. This is not a campground but rather a parking lot with space for your camper & table/chairs/awning. Just know going into it that you are here for the location. We found the staff to be very friendly and accommodating. Our stay involved 2 site transfers (best we could do given how last minute we booked). Check out is 11am. Neither of the campers leaving the site we were moving to were out by 11 but the staff worked with us to get them moving. Now let's talk generator use. It's a problem. Generator use is allowed 8am-8pm and there are folks who run it the WHOLE time. There are no rules as to where you can place your portable unit. The guy next to us put his at the rear of his coach, which was right outside our coach. Very loud & gasoline smell ALL DAY. Some regulations on generator use would be very welcome. Have 2 hour windows for generator use would be much better. A few people brought their home generators to use and those were particularly loud. Rules in this area need to change. But truly, that is the only downside to this place. We'll be back! We camped at Charlestown Breachway in a Motorhome.

So many great restaurants in the area. Charlestown Mini-Super is about 2 miles away for groceries. Several bait & tackle within 1-2 miles (for ice too!). Campers here are allowed 1 guest car per site for a small fee ($6). Beach is less busy than others in the area (East, Watch Hill, Misquamicuit).

Ocean View Cottages, Wells, Maine

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

We've stayed at this campground many times over the past dozen years. We camped in tent, VW Westfalia, back to tent, and now a Roadtrek. We are pleased with the improvements we've noticed this year. New sites have beautiful views of marsh. Other sites have been expanded, cleaned. Tent sites around 5,6,7 are still undesirable. We like the loop (site H!) and the RV sites (stayed in 61 and 64 this trip).

Pool is always clean, beautiful view. Laundry facilities are convenient. Bathrooms (3 stalls, 3 coin showers) are generally clean. Super convenient to Drake's Island Beach. Many restaurants and grocery store nearby. Very strict quiet hours, which we appreciate. No excessive noise at any time - again, much appreciated. E/W/Sewer/Cable $65/night (only site available, typically we don't worry about sewer or cable). E/W are $55/night. We camped at Ocean View Cottages in a Motorhome.

Be sure to grab a meal at Fisherman's Catch! Best seafood around. Walking distance (for those who like to walk) from campground. Drake's Island Beach is $20/day for car parking. RV parking (allowed only in overflow lot) is $30/day. Get there early during peak season/days! Parking does fill up.

Molly Stark State Park, Wilmington, Vermont

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

This little gem is our favorite campground and go to place. It is very well maintained. Private sites (as much privacy as one can expect!). Very clean bathrooms and showers. Quiet. Wood and ice available on site. Our favorite site is #13 located next to camp hosts - though we may try 2, 4, or 5 next time. The sites in the upper loop are generally comparable. The sites in the field (lower) pick up a lot of road noise. Very open, no privacy. Bath/shower house is older in that section so worth the walk to the other for showers. We have camped at Molly Stark for years in everything from tent to VW Westafalia back to tent and now Roadtrek (22'). The parks never disappoints. We camped at Molly Stark State Park in a Motorhome.

Grand Isle State Park, Grand Isle, Vermont

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

We stayed for 4 nights in our Roadtrek. Overall, great experience. Park was sold out during the time we visited so not perfectly clean bathrooms can be forgiven. Use the showers in the center of camp - much cleaner. Sites in the smaller loops are tight & people park on the side of the road rather than in their site - making it difficult to maneuver at times. Our site was small, very close to neighbors but fully shaded. Next time we'll choose a site in the 100 range. Water access was great. LOVE the no dogs on the beach rule! Park was loud but quieted right down by 10pm. Bottom line, great value if you're looking for rustic, bare bones camping. We'll be back! We camped at Grand Isle State Park in a Motorhome.

Whispering Oaks RV Resort, Greenville, North Carolina

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

Let's be clear, this isn't a "resort". This is a beautiful piece of property, with full hookups and giants oaks for shade (on some sites). If you're looking for the bell & whistles, look elsewhere. This property offers great location (just outside of the busy part of Greenville), great service (owners are on property), good value (water pressure was great). We stayed for 5 days while visiting our daughter at ECU. Perfect location to scoot back and forth between her apartment and the motorhome. Great having electric because it's hot in NC (we're from New England)! Owners came by a couple of times to check on us. Other campers were friendly. We had a campfire one night with wood supplied by a fellow camper. One road around the whole campground/property, easy to navigate. I did read a previous review and we had quite the opposite experience (friendly owner, and no problem with roaches...though there were some crickets around). Very happy with the place and we'll be back! We camped at Whispering Oaks RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Good area for exercise (flat neighborhood nearby to run). So many restaurants nearby...Winslow's, Ale House, Mellow Mushroom pizza...thus, the need to run every day while we were there! While there, our camper neighbors were shopping the 100-Mile Yard Sale and used this site as their base.
