Swan Bay Resort, Alexandria Bay, New York

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $95.00
Overall Rating:

This is one of the nicest facilities we have visited. All sites are quite large and well spaced. Each pad is level concrete with a paver extension under the table area. Fire pits were lined with stones, a nice alternative to the usual truck tire ring. Navigation within the park is good with easy back-in or pull-into sites. The marina is attended during the day, with clean docks and convenient boat rentals. Wi-Fi was unusable for three of the five days of our stay. They said it was due to volume, but the facility was only about half full during the outage. It started working properly at the end of the third day of our stay. Firewood was pricey - $8 for a small bundle. There are several roadside stands along the local roads selling similar bundles for $4, so consider buying before you arrive. Restrooms / showers were very clean. Cabins looked modern. The pool is small but they are adding another (also small). Our site was "waterfront" and we had lovely views of the St. Lawrence River and the passing ships in the channel. Our site had a large shade tree that was useful in the afternoon but most sites are in the full sun. You can see the river from most sites and it is an easy walk to the marina area. Overall, we were very pleased with our stay and plan to return again next season. We camped at Swan Bay Resort in a Motorhome.

Alexandria Bay is about 4 miles East. Uncle Sam Boat Tours will pick you up at the Swan Bay front gate, take you directly to Alexandria Bay and bring you back at your convenience. Be sure to visit Clayton, a small town just West of Swan Bay. Clayton is a very walkable town, with plenty of restaurants and small shops, a nice boat museum and a well stocked Ace Hardware store. There is a large new hotel in town that adjoins a beautiful park and riverwalk with great views of passing ships.

Kentucky Horse Park Campground, Lexington, Kentucky

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $31.00
Overall Rating:

Very large campsite with plenty of spacing between sites and lots of trees. The paved strip for parking was just wide and long enough for our RV and almost level. However, there was no stone or paving in the patio / table area and the grass was worn away, so it was just dirt. Unfortunately, it rained heavily all the time we were there, so the dirt turned to mud, which meant we stepped out of our RV into a large mud hole. We used our ground cover, but that soon became saturated with mud. At our request, they provided straw that covered the mud and that helped greatly. Over the air TV reception was very good. There was no Wi-Fi signal at our site, and it was fair at the office, but we had to sit outside to use it. Campground was very quiet and a lovely setting with well maintained trees and grass. They provided transportation to the Horse Park, but we soon discovered that it was a nice walk from the campground. The fire ring was mostly rusted away but looked to be still useable. We plan to go back to this campground in the future and hope for better weather. We camped at Kentucky Horse Park Campground in a Motorhome.

The Kentucky Horse Park is a must-see. Buy tickets at the campground office, as they provide a discount and will take you there and bring you back. The restaurant at the Horse Park was fairly reasonable and the food was good. If you are a biker, there is a bike trail just outside the park that runs from Lexington to Georgetown.

Sundermeier RV Park, Saint Charles, Missouri

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $53.00
Overall Rating:

Nice, large, level concrete pads are big enough for our motorhome plus one car and the picnic table on the patio area. Sites are very close together but very clean and well cared for. Although there is a fence around most of the park, there is open access from the city street. For bikers and walkers, it is located on the Katy Trail, which is a well maintained trail that stretches along the Missouri River across the State of Missouri. The campground is within walking distance to the center of Saint Charles, a lovely tourist town just outside of St Louis that has lots of shops and restaurants. There is no pool, but the restrooms are very clean and well maintained. There is no cable TV but the local channel selection is excellent. Wi-Fi is good overall. We stayed here four nights and will stay here again on our next trip to this area. We camped at Sundermeier RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Visit Saint Charles and stroll the brick streets and sidewalks to shop the many gift and antique shops. There are two excellent shops that make and sell fudge and ice cream (excellent). Grandma's Cookies is worth a visit, as well as the Bike Stop Cafe for breakfast or lunch. Stop at the visitor center and be sure to take the free trolley ride around town where you will learn the local history and see the interesting architecture of the many old buildings. Parking is free downtown - a plus.

Hilton Head Island Motorcoach Resort, Hilton Head Island, South Carolina

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $90.00
Overall Rating:

This was our first visit this year; we visited 4 times in 2017. Since we do not tow a car, biking is very important, and this facility is an excellent location for biking to restaurants, shops, markets and a beautiful beach. There are miles of bike trails all over the island that keep you off the major roads. Cable TV signal was strong, with good channel selection, Wi-Fi was weak and spotty, a complaint that we shared with others. There are only two men's room commodes in the clubhouse for the entire population, that's not enough. There is a general positive and friendly atmosphere with the staff and the people here. Each week there are bike tours and guided tours of the local areas that are fun and well coordinated. They are opening the snack bar at the lovely pool soon so you don't need to leave the pool area to find a nice lunch. The sites are well maintained and very clean. We will return soon. We camped at Hilton Head Island Motorcoach Resort in a Motorhome.

Very clean and well designed restroom / shower facilities. They constantly work at keeping this facility clean. We have stayed here before and have not been disappointed. Overall, this facility appears to be very well managed. Even the landscaping was in excellent condition. We camped at Raleigh Oaks RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Cape Charles / Chesapeake Bay KOA, Cape Charles, Virginia

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $75.00
Overall Rating:

Our site was chosen for us before arrival. It was located right in front of the bathroom entrance next to the hotel parking lot, even though the park was virtually empty. After three tries, we were assigned a more suitable site. The site was level and clean. Utilities all worked fine and the wi-fi was excellent. The pool was clean, with good furniture and lots of lounge, umbrellas and chairs. The beach was small, but nice, although there was trash that needed to be picked up. The bathrooms were fairly modern but not clean, and we determined that there was no thorough cleaning done in the four days we were there. Although they advertise shuttle service in the local area, we saw no shuttle, and, when we asked, we were told that a driver was not available. The front desk person took our number and indicated the manager would call us the next day to advise the schedule. There was no call, so we asked again at the desk and were told the same, but, again, no one called the next day. We went up the following day and "signed up" for the shuttle and were told that someone would call; again no one called, and no shuttle bus was ever visible. We camped at Cape Charles / Chesapeake Bay KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

There is a nice wildlife refuge and welcome center just across Rt.13 with walking trails and an excellent 3 mile paved bike path that takes you to Kiptopeke State Park. There is a very nice campground, trails and beach at Kiptopeke State Park and we decided that, on our next trip to the Cape Charles area, we will stay at the state park instead of Sunset Beach.
