Sterling State Park, Monroe, Michigan

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

Nice park just a stone's throw from the Detroit Metro area. Located on Lake Erie with all sorts of inlets and islands nearby. Lots of fishing opportunities and a generously sized boat launch. Usually there's a breeze off the lake to disperse a lot of the campfire smoke. Sites on outside loop are quite large, but have electric only. The full hookup sites are a bit tighter. A few years ago, Sterling lost most of their trees to Asian ash borers so there's not much shade yet. Sterling has one of the biggest dump stations I've seen in a state park so you shouldn't have to wait a long time on Sunday to hit the road. Really nice paved walking/biking trails throughout. These trails also connect to the Monroe Historic Trails so you can walk your feet off if you want to. We camped at Sterling State Park in a Motorhome.

Sauder Village Campground, Archbold, Ohio

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

A very quiet, pleasant campground near Historic Sauder Village. Even from the far back portion of the campground, the village, restaurant, bakery were just a 10-15 walk. Site was pretty level, but we still used our leveling jacks to lift the front a bit. Utilities were in top notch condition and located on the driver's side of the rig. We had five bars with Verizon 4G, but the campground wifi was awesome. Even on a weekend, we had a pretty good connection that was suitable for email and light browsing. In between the two campground loops was a nice walking trail of about a mile through the cornfields. It had shade trees and benches every so often for resting. Evening walks are accompanied by fireflies. The restrooms/showers were clean and had ice available for a reasonable fee. Firewood is available on your way in from a self service shed. There is a train about a half mile away, but it wasn't loud enough to wake us up. The back loop has no mature trees, but they have young ones planted next to each site. In addition to the group firepits, each site has its own firering. Another thing we noticed was how wide the roads were. Big rigs should have no problem getting around, backing in, etc. We camped at Sauder Village Campground in a Motorhome.

Check Groupon for a discount for tickets to Sauder Village. The ice cream shop in the village sells big-as-your-head ice cream cones for just $3. Be sure to stop by the Doughbox Bakery, too, which is just outside the village.

Warwick Conservation Area, Lambton Shores, Ontario

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $52.00
Overall Rating:

When you exit the 401, follow your phone or GPS. There is signage that points to WARWICK CONSERVATION AREA in the opposite direction to the GPS, but the route is not well marked. We had to drive about 10 miles to find somewhere to turn around. When we arrived, the check in station was closed. We were assigned a site that does not appear on the campground map. Haven't had this happen in 15 years of RVing, but I thought we could figure this out. After lapping the campground three times in the dark, I decided to call the emergency number. Left a message that didn't get returned for over two hours after we were already asleep. I ended up backing into an empty spot and hoped it wasn't reserved already. 90% of the sites are seasonal RVs in a variety of conditions. Site was electric only which makes the $52 Canadian really expensive. Site was very short so we had to stuff our 32' motorhome in diagonally. Roads are very narrow and would be difficult in a larger rig. This is way out in the boonies so make sure you get provisions before setting up camp. Power pedestal had a single 30 Amp outlet, no breakers, no other outlets. We camped at Warwick Conservation Area in a Motorhome.

Montreal South KOA, St. Philippe de Laprairie, Quebec

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $56.00
Overall Rating:

KOA in a semi-rural area about 30 minutes south of Montreal. Very quiet at night for such a large campground. Site was small, but mostly level. Hook ups were in good shape, but my site was 50 Amp only. The office loaned me an adapter for my 30 Amp RV. . Wifi is serviceable, but does boot you off often. We camped at Montreal South KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

We preferred going to the area adjacent to Old Montreal on the waterfront. Street performers, musicians, restaurants, and shopping aplenty here.

Gray Line offers pickup from the KOA to take you into Montreal for $65/person. This gives you two days of shuttling to/from Montreal. They pick you up at about 9:30 am. After a 30-40 minute ride into Montreal, you get unlimited use of Gray Line's doubledecker route. Guides onboard point out the sights for you. Down side of this offer is that the bus back to the KOA leaves PROMPTLY at 5 pm, so you end up with a time slot of about 10:15 to 5. Your other choices include a $40 taxi ride to the rail station or a $80 taxi ride into the city

Cannontown, Alma, New Brunswick

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

This is a new RV park located across the road from the Headquarters Campground. As you'd expect for a new place, everything's in top notch condition. Site was fairly level, but we still needed to do a bit of tweaking. The "bath house" is currently one of those mobile home things. Not sure if they are planning to build a permanent one. This is a great spot for families. There's a large, new-ish playground a short walk away and a salt water pool, too. The pool is a bike ride or short car trip away. We do not tow a car with our motorhome and had intended to use our bikes to get around. It turned out that most of the trails (bike or hiking) were either Difficult or Moderate which were beyond our capabilities. There are a tiny number of "family friendly" trails, but you'd need a vehicle to drive to them. There are no bike paths adjacent to the roads and there are some VERY steep roads in this park. Keep this in mind if you're traveling with young kids or you're an Older Camper, like me. We camped at Cannontown in a Motorhome.

The park is a good trek away from civilization so make sure you are stocked up on groceries, propane, bug repellent, etc. since it would be an hour or two round trip to run to a store.

South Kouchibouguac Campground (Parks Canada), Kouchibouguac National Park, New Brunswick

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

This was our first stay at a Canadian Nat'l Park and we are impressed with the camping. Sites are HUGE. We stayed on 253 and 257. Both had over 50' of space on each side and backed up to a large meadow. The shaded spots were a bit smaller but had tons of vegetation to separate you from your neighbors. We are also not accustomed to full hook-ups at a national park site. Super awesome! Other niceties: trash and recycling bins EVERYWHERE, not just up at the entrance, access to tons of recreation (biking, swimming, kayaking, canoeing, mountain biking, fishing, etc.), and wifi at our site (this was supplied by a nearby bathhouse two rows away, but was still serviceable for checking email, typical campground speeds). Don't bring in wood. Purchase wood from the ranger station and you'll be pleasantly surprised with would that's dry and actually burns cleanly, instead of the smolder-o-matic wood found at most state and national parks.

Remember the industrial-strength insect repellent, these buggers are hungry. We parked and just used bikes to get around. Most paths (away from the mtn bike trails) were fairly flat so a run to the beach or convenience store was pretty easy. We camped at South Kouchibouguac Campground (Parks Canada) in a Motorhome.

Camping La Relâche, Levis, Quebec

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

Located right in the city of Levis across the river from Quebec City. Appears to have seasonal as well as overnight sites. Campground was decent to use as a base for visiting QC. Storage lot of RVs near front of campground made it look a little seedy. Bus stop located in front of campground will take you to the ferry for $2/person, bus ride is about 40 minutes to the dock. 15 minute ferry ($7/person) will take you directly to Old Quebec City. Be prepared for lots of up/downhill walking! Mrs. Owner spoke English and was very helpful for local directions. She knew we were arriving late so she saved us a spot right next to the office. There are restaurants and grocery stores nearby, but will require driving. All prices mentioned are in Canadian dollars. We camped at Camping La Relâche in a Motorhome.

Hidden Ridge RV Resort, Hopkins, Michigan

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

Super clean and in tip top condition. Really a resort where you set up and don't need to leave. We stayed in a newer section that looked like it was about a year old. Utility hookups and cement pad in flawless condition. Clubhouse, pool, fishing pond, etc. really provides a great place to either camp with your kids or grand kids. Felt absolutely no pressure to purchase a site there, just gave us a brochure at check-in. There were a few things that weren't perfect. Our site pad wasn't level (levelers had the front wheels of the coach just about off the ground), there were TONS of golf carts zipping around, and there is almost zero shade in the park. Although we were there on an extremely busy Memorial Day weekend, customer service was excellent and we often saw ranger patrols through the park. We camped at Hidden Ridge RV Resort in a Motorhome.

2 Rivers Campground, Carrollton, Kentucky

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

Nice little park right in town about 15 minutes from Kentucky Speedway. It appears this campground is brand new with generous paved sites, hook-ups in perfect condition, and a walking trail along the river. Very neat and clean. Small trees will need a few years before they provide any shade. Smooth paved roads throughout the park. Wifi was excellent since we were here in the off season, good Verizon reception, too. Couldn't reliably get any over-the-air TV stations. Large shopping area about 5 minutes away. We camped at 2 Rivers Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice state park right on the beach on Lake Michigan. Phenomenal sunsets every night! A very limited number of sites at the beach campground offer full hook-ups, but we were on an electric only. Small beachfront snack bar offering lunch and dinner. We camped at Holland State Park in a Motorhome.

Big Meadow Family Campground, Townsend, Tennessee

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $52.00
Overall Rating:

This is a resort town so you have to compromise a bit on RV parks. They are packed in tight. However, this place was neat as a pin, the owners were onsite and visible throughout our stay. Sites are narrow with the exception of ones on the western edge. We stayed two nights "creekside" which is a description that's being used liberally. There's a public road eight feet from our site that locals used at 25 to 45 MPH. The speed bumps did little to slow them down. The creek is just beyond that road. For two more nights, we stayed at an interior site. These are narrower than the creekside, but still enough room for slides and awning. All hookups were in good condition. Wifi was usable on a Thursday, but the weekend wiped out any possible connection. Verizon worked pretty well here. The location is 5-10 minutes from the Townsend entrance to the Smokies. It's also just off Wears Valley Road if you'd like to bypass around Gatlinburg to visit the other side of the park. If you'd like to tube the river, there are two tubing places within walking distance of Big Meadow. We camped at Big Meadow Family Campground in a Motorhome.

Whispering Hills RV Park, Georgetown, Kentucky

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

We stopped here after getting caught in a three-hour shutdown of I-75. Got a great rate of approx. $36. Park is unusual since most of it is gravel: the roads, the sites, everywhere. There are some upgraded sites with patios, extra large picnic tables, some greenery and two person gliders. Park electric, water, and sewer hook-up were in good condition. Didn't try the wifi since the park was pretty full. We didn't use the pool but it looked nice and in top notch condition. People in the office were very nice and guided us to our site. There were some seasonals near the back, but were in good enough condition that the theme song from "Sanford & Son" didn't immediately start playing in my head. While not a picturesque park, it would be a good base for touring the local area. We camped at Whispering Hills RV Park in a Motorhome.

LaSalle / Peru KOA, Utica, Illinois

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

My previous review 10+ years ago was bit more glowing. The interior sites are quite close together, but were mostly level. Power pedestals and water hook ups were in good shape and didn't look like a DIY project. The full hook sites 16-25 are right on the main road with 8-10 feet from the RVs to the pavement. Other FHU sites were crammed in right next to the office facing all the inbound traffic. I think if you went with an outside "ring" water & electric sites (35 thru 51), you'd have a pleasant view and a bit more space. For the tenters, there are a ton of spots without hook ups in the rear of the campground. Shower house was clean and modern. Office and neat and tidy, staff friendly. One odd thing was the dump station location. I happened to need to empty the holding tanks on my way in and found the station right next to the office on the driver's side, which is exactly where you'd need it on your way INTO the park. The only way to use it on the way out would be to leave the park, turn around somewhere (just two lane roads around here), and come back into the park. Or, do some heroic backing all through the campground to get there in the correct orientation. Wifi was the usual useless campground wifi. Verizon Wireless had 4G and a very strong signal. We camped at LaSalle / Peru KOA in a Motorhome.

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

Nice state park with plenty of space between sites. Ours dropped off at the rear a bit so we deployed our leveling jacks on that end only. Side-to-side was level. Power pedestal was 30 Amp and did not like running A/C and electric water heater at same time. Fire ring/BBQ was a bit close to the RV (if you park a lot closed to the road, this won't be a problem) We camped at Jubilee College State Park in a Motorhome.
