Martinak State Park, Denton, Maryland

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $12.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed at this park in a 30' Travel Trailer. The site was a little narrow, but very level and plenty long for our truck and trailer. We have stayed here a few times before and enjoy the convenient location. We had good cell phone coverage and OTA TV. Dump station has a fairly tight turn. The park is very close to shopping (Walmart and others about a mile away) and good places to eat in Denton. They have done some recent upgrades to the restrooms and they were very nice. We camped at Martinak State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Big Meadows Campground (NPS Campground), Shenandoah National Park, Virginia

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $10.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed here in a 30' Travel Trailer. The park has no hookups, so we ran the generator each evening. There was good spacing between sites and even though the park was full, it was very quiet. You need to fill your water tank at the dump station which is before you get to the campground. The dump station has a single drain, so lines can get a bit lengthy if you checkout at a busy time. There were lots of opportunities for hiking here. We enjoyed several of the trails in the area. We had no cell phone service and no OTA tv. Our site was level, but some not so much. We enjoyed our stay here and will definitely be back. We camped at Big Meadows Campground (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

Lots of trails for hiking, decent meals at the Wayside facility and good prices for gas. The visitor center gave us good info for hiking trails and provided free maps. Cell phone connectivity is good at the Skyland resort and various overlooks.

Worlds End State Park, Forksville, Pennsylvania

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

The CG is right next to the Loyalsock Creek and Hiway 154. Even though the highway is close, the sounds of the river running made up for any traffic noise. It truly is at world's end when it comes to connectivity - zero cell phone signal or OTA TV. The spacing between sites was good and access was easy. Most sites were fairly level. We would definitely stay at World's End again. We camped at Worlds End State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

The highlight of our stay was over at Ricketts Glen State Park and the hiking the Falls Trail. This was a 3 1/2 mile round trip hike with a steep descent down and a requisite steep ascent up the other side. We recommend going down the Ganoga Glen section, going over to the R.B. Ricketts Falls or Ozone Falls on the Glen Leigh side and then back over to the Ganoga Glen side to return. There is a set of rock steps between the Huron Falls and Shawnee Falls that we would not like to try again (limited footing on wet rocks and straight down over the falls). Probably OK for you younger folks, but my 71 year old knees wouldn't be able to do it again. That being said, the hike was spectacular!! More than 22 waterfalls and terrific scenery.Located right next to the Canyon Vista Trail.

The town of Forksville and the general store were interesting to visit. MaryBeth's Westside Deli in Dushore had excellent sandwiches.

Hickory Hill Family Camping Resort, Bath, New York

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed here with a group and received a 50% discount. We don't normally stay at a full service campgrounds because it doesn't feel like camping. There is limited space between units and it doesn't lend itself to hanging out around the campfire. That being said, the facilities are very nice and the staff exceptional. We were trying to handle flooding issues with our property in New Bern, NC during Hurricane Florence and the office helped us tremendously with printing forms and faxing responses to FEMA adjusters and others. The cell phone signal was excellent here, strong wifi, and cable tv. We would definitely stay here again with our group. We camped at Hickory Hill Family Camping Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Rocky Gap State Park, Flintstone, Maryland

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $13.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed here in a 28' travel trailer at site #A19. This was a very long site with plenty of room for us and well shaded (appreciated during this hot spell). We had verizon service with 4G and 4 bars. There were 5 channels of OTA TV. This site is right next to a water spigot, so if you had a long hose (100') you could fill from the site. All of the sites were spacious with good separation between sites. I think there were only 3 sites (out of 30 in the electric loop - Aspen) that weren't great and even those would be perfectly acceptable. The sites are within walking distance of the lake and the trail that circles it (about 5 miles if you complete the whole loop). There is a golf course and casino on the property for those who enjoy that sort of thing. The restaurants at the casino looked good, but we didn't try them out. The facility is only 8 miles from Cumberland, MD, so plenty of places to pick up things you may have forgotten and places to eat. This has been our favorite campground this year and we will try to make it back one more time before winter. We camped at Rocky Gap State Park in a Travel Trailer.

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

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $14.00
Overall Rating:

The site we stayed in "#25" was very level and had a water spigot right next to it. There are lots of trails to hike in and around the park. A very nice hike down to the falls (a couple of steep and rocky parts, but very doable for us 70 year old, out of shape) . Wear good shoes and you will be in good shape. Hiking poles come in handy as well. A very nice setting provided a great spot to play during a heavy rainstorm. There was a lot of activity down at the lake during the weekend, but things quieted down nicely during the week. There was a "Teardrop" rendezvous going on while we were there. Great folks who seemed to really enjoy their little trailers.

The roads were easy to navigate, but that is in reference to our rig of 28'. The road in was curvy and narrow (highway 77) and the road up to the campground loop (Addison) was pretty steep. I wouldn't recommend it for a big 5th wheel although there were a couple of large motorhomes there - they did unhook their cars before they came in .

Blackwater Falls State Park, Davis, West Virginia

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed here in a 30 ft travel trailer at site #11. There was some shade, but felt very exposed. The site layout was not to our liking with the table and firepit to the rear of the site and the door side right next to the tenters next door. Many of the sites were a combined back in and pull through arrangement that may have been good for folks camping together, but not an acceptable scenario for us. Sites 5, 7, and 9 were the only ones we would stay at if we ever returned. We took a drive over to Canaan Valley State Park (about 20 minutes away) and thought that would be a better place to head next time we are in that area (sites 5, 12, 14, 15, 17, 24, 32, and 34 all looked good with pull throughs and much better spacing). Cell phone coverage was 1g, so no data or hot spot internet here. No OTA TV either, but the hiking and exploring the area more than made up for that. We especially liked the Elakala and Lindy point trails. It was an easy hike to the falls (lots of stairs though). We camped at Blackwater Falls State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We asked for a dining recommendation and were told that the Sawmill would be a good choice. It wasn't that good - but the price was right. No alcohol. Sirianni's pizza was excellent and the service was great. Prices very reasonable as well.

Raccoon Creek State Park, Hookstown, Pennsylvania

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

This was a nice park. The sites were reasonably spaced and generally level. We had fair cell phone reception with Verizon and good OTA TV (out of Pittsburgh). As others have mentioned, there was a bit of noise from the air traffic headed into Pittsburgh, but it was not terribly intrusive. We found lots of good hiking here (especially in the Wildflower Reserve area) and the trails were interesting. The trail from the campground to the beach was pretty steep, so we turned back on that one. Our site (E08) was good and, after walking the campground several times, thought that others would have been better. Sites E01, E02, E14, and E30 all looked good - a little more suited for our 30 foot trailer. A01, A12, B10, B16, and F35 were also a good fit. The best place to get water is just as you enter section F directly across from F01. We enjoyed our stay here and plan to return again. We camped at Raccoon Creek State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We heard from locals that gas was much cheaper in Ohio, so we drove through the West Virginia panhandle and found it to be as much as 40 cents a gallon less in East Liverpool.

We stayed in the Cedar Electric loop. This park is very well designed for camping. All sites are reasonably level, but some have fairly steep slopes to the pad. The campground host was very informative and kept the sites spotless. We will definitely return. We camped at Greenbrier State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

There is a small lake here that you can swim, fish, and boat (paddle or electric motor only). There are several hiking trails and access to the Appalachian Trail is nearby . Hagarstown and Frederick are both good sized towns with a 30 minute drive. We had good pizza in Boonsboro. Very close to Washington Monument State Park, Gathland State Park and Antietam National Cemetary/Battlefield.

Pocomoke River State Park, Snow Hill, Maryland

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $15.00
Overall Rating:

Located near Snow Hill, Md, but close to Assateague, Ocean City, and Crisfield. This was a great spot. We stayed in the Acorn Loop (all electric) and enjoyed walking the trails. Since we were there during the week, we had the place all to ourselves - only two other campers that we saw in the whole park. The bath house has been recently refurbished and was very nice and clean. We stayed here in a 28' travel trailer and had plenty of room. Dump station is on the way out - a little tight for longer rigs. We will definitely be back. We camped at Pocomoke River State Park in a Travel Trailer.
