Ives Run COE, Tioga, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $18.00
Overall Rating:

Lovely COE campground on Hammond Lake in the Tioga-Hammond Recreation Area. Great hiking trails of all lengths and levels. We lucked into Birch loop site #100 with a lovely view of the peaceful lake and easy access to launch our kayaks. Paved, level site but we had to maneuver our 21' Class B to access the power box (our 25' cord was just 2' too short...should have brought the 50')! We were there mid-week so the campground was very quiet, even though it was full. Bit of a hike to the showers since the facilities in our loop were bathrooms only. Very much enjoyed our stay in this area and would like to return. We camped at Ives Run COE in a Motorhome.

The quaint town of Wellsboro is close by and offers touring expeditions to the "Grand Canyon of Pennsylvania" which we did not have time to visit.

Watkins Glen State Park, Watkins Glen, New York

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

This was a last minute overnight stop as we were trying to dodge rainstorms. Tried calling ahead and could never get through, but there were 4 sites left in the electric loop when we arrived. We chose #68 because it was so private but was pretty unlevel. Some sites were very spacious and some seemed very crowded, although all are shaded. We are in a 21' Class B so navigating the loop was no problem but I could see that bigger rigs may have trouble with the twisty-turny roads. There were water usage restrictions due to flooding in all of Watkins Glen (not just the park) so we did not use the restrooms. Great upper gorge hiking trails but the Gorge Trail is beyond beautiful! All can be accessed from the campground loop next door. We camped at Watkins Glen State Park in a Motorhome.

Plan to hike the Gorge Trail early in the morning to avoid the tour groups. Not as much traffic on the upper trails during the day.

Golden Hill State Park, Barker, New York

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

Wow-the spectacular view of Lake Ontario makes this small state park a quiet and peaceful place. Our site #3 in B loop was a pull-through (which as a 21' Class B we really didn't need) and very tight to neighbors. C-loop was more spacious but rangers told us those fill up as soon as they become available. Bath & shower facilities new and very clean. We used this park as home base for touring Niagara Falls and brewery/winery tastings. We camped at Golden Hill State Park in a Motorhome.

We never had the chance to tour the lighthouse and visitor center on site but were told it is very interesting. Also never hiked the nearby trails since we were on the move so much.

Parker Dam State Park, Weedville, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $33.00
Overall Rating:

Beautiful, remote location in the Moshannon State Forest. Wonderful hiking trails of all lengths and levels. Small lake for fishing and swimming but too small for long kayak rides. Great day-use facilities. We lucked into the best site in the park #89 which was shady, almost level and quite spacious. Other campsites not so much. We are in a 21' Class B so size is not an issue but we could see that bigger rigs would be quite cramped. No cell service (Verizon) so had to hike up the road about a mile each day to connect to the outside world. We just worked that into our daily hikes. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. We camped at Parker Dam State Park in a Motorhome.

Cunningham Falls State Park - William Houck Campground, Thurmont, Maryland

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

What a beautiful park! We stayed in Addison Run Loop pet-friendly with electric, site #15. Fully shaded, quiet, very secluded, level, clean and NO bugs. The weather was cool so we could leave our camper doors open..until the torrential rains came on Saturday afternoon...about 3" worth! Wonderful hiking trails down to the Falls and the Lake, a little difficult so glad we had hiking shoes and poles. Didn't use bathroom facilities this trip but peaked inside and they looked clean with nice shower stalls. We have a 21' Class B campervan so size was not an issue at our site, however, I could see that larger rigs may have trouble with site size. Our loop had more tent campers than RVs, and with the rains I was reminded how nice it is to be warm and dry hunkered inside our camper! The park is quite hilly with lush old growth forest and rocky outcroppings. We also hiked part of the Catoctin Run trail, crossing mountain streams which swelled with the heavy rain. We will definitely be back to this lovely place. NOTE: One of the tent campers took a plastic tub filled with firewood from our site while we were out sightseeing in the van. When we found the tub missing and went to retrieve it, the thief said "Sorry dude, I thought you were gone." We usually leave miscellaneous items out when we daytrip, never anything of value, to let folks know the site is occupied. We camped at Cunningham Falls State Park - William Houck Campground in a Motorhome.

Point Lookout State Park, Scotland, Maryland

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

We arrived after two weeks of ridiculous rain and the weekend forecast predicted more. We stayed in Greens Point, site #87 which was pet-friendly, extremely spacious and very private. The phragmites blocked a little of the lovely water view but also provided a wind screen. Electric only which is all we need. I understand Tulip Loop has full hook-ups. Although the ground was saturated and standing water everywhere, the mosquitoes although no worse than at home, were still pretty bad. We enjoyed the nature center and civil war museum on site. The one short hiking trail was mostly underwater so we didn't attempt that but did hike down the park road to the beach. The restrooms were spotless and the showers the BEST we've ever had. Separate stalls with a private dressing area, bench, shelf, hangers. Fabulous. Because of the weather the campground was pretty empty but that made for a very quite stay. We would go back to this park, but more likely in late April or early May. We camped at Point Lookout State Park in a Motorhome.

Cape Henlopen State Park, Lewes, Delaware

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

We needed a quick overnight escape and really like this park, especially in the off-season. There were plenty of sites available for our 21' camper van, all level with new asphalt and fire ring & picnic table. Since we had not de-winterized we hooked to power only; water was also available at our site. Great walking/hiking trails as well as an expansive beach. We explored the Great Dune and felt like we were in another world! The campground was extremely peaceful and quiet this time of year, but I imagine it is packed during the summer months, when it would be a great family destination. Some of the sites are small so be sure to check the size if reserving online. We camped at Cape Henlopen State Park in a Motorhome.

There is so much to do within the park that there is no need to travel outside it, however it is very close to the quaint historic town of Lewes and only several miles to Rehoboth Beach. Restaurants and stores are abundant in the area.
