Bass Harbor Campground, Bass Harbor, Maine

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

The inner roads are a dirt/gravel mixture, and a lot of dust. We walked the route to our spot as the two staff members had different opinions on the route to take. We stayed 7 nights , added 2 extra nights to the original booking and was charged 10.00 extra for doing so. It's called a change fee. I have never been charged a fee by a private camp ground to add days. 45.15 a night for elec, water and cable. Our site 327, is a back in and hook ups are at the front of your rig. So you can only back in as far as you can reach with water, cable and electric. 2 very large cement blocks were in the middle of the parking spot where your rv goes, took 2 of us to move each. The tow vehicle had to park sideways in front of the rv to fit. Our picnic table had one side that was breaking if you sat on it. We were surrounded by seasonal campers, one played music loudly every day we were there and allowed his dog to run freely. The park has a lot of seasonal sites, a little like a trailer park in appearance as their areas were loaded with stuff to include empty beer cans on the ground. bathrooms/showers are all in the same building, down the middle is separate men and women's toilets. On the right and left side are the unisex showers, you use a code to get. The showers are large, plenty of hot water but open at the top. Men or women are in the showers next to you. There was always hair in the showers. They appeared as if they needed a good scrubbing. Bathrooms were semi clean, trash in stalls needed to be dumped more often then what they were. Laundry room has Cold water only. I heard dogs barking several times and only saw one running freely. If your site is close to the border you will have a fence next to you. Things I would like to see change, cleaner showers, women's showers separate from the men's, an on line description of your site (hookups are in front of the Rv), no change fee (some times your site has issues) I would not camp here again. We camped at Bass Harbor Campground in a Motorhome.

Green Meadow Camping Area, Glen, New Hampshire

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

This campground is in the perfect spot for hiking in the white mountains and yet close to shopping. Only available spot for 5 nights was 33, and that is in an open field. It has a basketball court behind it, I would pick another site. Could never get it level in the grass but close enough for a good night sleep with out sliding out of bed. Remember we booked at the last minute for labor day weekend, so just thankful we had a place. On to what the camp ground is like, lots of families with each child on a bike. Speed limit was respected for that very reason by everyone, when it was 10 pm, no noise. They offer all levels of hook ups, we had electric and water. Wooded lots or open lots, many to pick from. We found the staff to be friendly and helpful. The swim pool is wonderful, and lots of playgrounds. Wifi is available but we couldn't get it to work, we have att and it was 1/2 bar. Things I would change: put doors on the main door to the bathrooms as it was uncomfortable sitting on the pot with all the world to see you sitting. Walk the campgrounds and police, dogs, that are off leashes. Put in a big sink for washing dishes. I would like to see them put an online reservation system, calling is difficult from other campgrounds with limited a cell service. I like to have a receipt when booking too. I would return and we enjoyed our stay here. It was our first camp ground experience with so many children and we enjoyed watching them run around like nuts playing. Hint: look on their web site for dates they have a free band, we lucked out. We camped at Green Meadow Camping Area in a Motorhome.

Charlottesville KOA, Charlottesville, Virginia

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

We stayed at this campground for 10 days to tour Charlottesville. The campsite we had was full hook up, part shade and had a gravel base, mixed with grass areas. The campsite backed up to where large RV's parked, on a lower level, great spot when it was empty. Downside to when it wasn't is your bedroom is right where there air conditioners are as they are situated downhill right under you by a few feet. It is not the typical KOA camp ground, older and missing some of the kid type things. The pool was very nice, big and private as it's located in a wooded area. The laundry/game room was in a large building, lots of pay as you play games and pool table. A book exchange is in the laundry room. A change machine was also in the building but was unreliable to work and the office did not have change to give. The staff uses the laundry equipment and it can be a long wait for a dryer as they leave bedding in them for hours. This happened twice to us. I would not use the laundry again as it took us 3 hours to finish doing 2 loads one of the times and took the wet laundry back to the camper to try and dry the next morning the other time. 1 washer stops at 20 min and 1 dryer doesn't get very hot. 2 a wash and 1.50 for 30 min to dry. 4 dryers and 4 washers. Bathrooms (women's)were dirty and needed attention most days we were there. 2Toilets were full off poop for 2 solid days and garbage was in one shower for 4 days before removal. The dryer for your hands compiled with hot showers, hair blowers, little to no air made the bathroom/shower room an event you had to prepare yourself for. Men's bathroom was also a steam room and needed attention most days. There is a camp store with many items for sale, ice as well. I gave the campground a + rating for great location, swim pool and some nice spots to camp in, I took away for rude staff member, dirty bathrooms and laundry situations. I would like to be able to book a site on line when you pay. We camped at Charlottesville KOA in a Motorhome.

Camping on the Battenkill, Arlington, Vermont

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

We booked at the last minute and split our time between 2 sites. Both sites were very good, level and plenty of room. Part shade most of the day but enough sun to hit the solar panels. 18b was the best spot. We had a 26 foot class C, and still had plenty of room for the tow vehicle to park in front. Both sites were full hook ups, but 19b was a 50 amp service so we used an adapter. The office is very good working with you to change sites as we had originally booked 14b, but didn't like the branches hanging down that we would have to drive thru, plus the site was un-level and slanted. I did see class A rigs come into the campgrounds but they were hitting limbs. The bathrooms/showers are dated and I used my own shower. We did have to use our own pump as water pressure was too low to make the on demand water heater work. I would stay here again, using my own shower. It's is a friendly, quiet camp grounds close to lots of hiking, outlet mall and great restaurants. I would give this campground 5 stars if the bathrooms/showers were updated and cleaner. When someone leaves, they clean the fire pits and do a site clean up to include remove any left over wood. Pets: only saw 5 dogs off leashes the 8 nights we were here, that's pretty good for as big as it is. Every morning our screened cooking tent was peed on, seems it liked 2 corners. One neighbor put their dog on a long rope that reached under our RV to our picnic table. It was pretty funny when she started licking my knee during breakfast. Tips: walk to your site before driving in, its a maze of roads and hard to get turned around if you make a wrong turn. Bring bug spray. Full hook up sites that look good: 21, 22, 23, 19, 18, 17. Some river sites were pretty, electric only. The roads are filled with pot holes, be careful. Look for over head for hanging branches, bring bug spray. When parking, check for hanging dead branches. Over all, not impossible to maneuver thru them. We camped at Camping on the Battenkill in a Motorhome.

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

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

This is almost the perfect park, beautiful wooded campgrounds, large camp spots, plenty to do. The camp spots were level and very clean. We stayed in site 15 for 5 nights and 18 for 1 night in the Addison run section the only electric section with pets allowed (1 old cat) electric only, water was close by. So level we didn't need to do anything. We booked on line and when we checked in the agent at the gate asked how old we were and then promptly gave us a Maryland Park Service Golden Age pass holders ($10) and refunded us 71 from our booked reservation, 1/2 price camping for 62+ Sunday thru Thursday. ATT did not work at the camp ground section we were in, but we went 1/2 mile up the hill to another section, took lunch with us and was able to get cell service. The antenna TV was also pretty bad, so plan on outside time. The hiking is great, swimming, fishing and canoeing, lots to do. At the front entrance is a book exchange. The only downside are the conditions of the bathhouse in the Addison run loop, and they are pretty bad. Enough for me to take 1 star off for this perfect park. A razor and garbage stayed in one shower stall for 3 days. A broom to knock down cobwebs and other debris would help, mop the floors or clean with a hose, just to mention a few things. We camped at Cunningham Falls State Park - William Houck Campground in a Motorhome.

Promised Land State Park, Greentown, Pennsylvania

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

This is a beautiful park, lots to do. Hiking trails, water activities, swimming and biking all in the park. My review is on the camping section we stayed in. We stayed in the Beechwood section, PT1. The best two spots for privacy and lots of room are PT1 and 3, at opposite ends of the this park. Gravel driveway with grass and woods on this spot. We had electric only, water was from hydrants placed through out the park. One washer and dryer, front load. Same old issue with all camp grounds, people leaving stuff in them for hours. But the washer did an excellent job washing some very sweaty clothes from hiking. When you check in, a fill station is in the parking lot, use it as the roads are narrow and to fill in the parks camp grounds is tough. There are 5 sections of campgrounds, some with electric, full and no hook ups. You can ride your bike to all different sections, roads are pretty safe. We have ATT, and no cell service. Also no antenna TV. BUGS are an issue, no bug spray we had could discourage the mosquitoes. We were literally run off a trail by herds, flocks and swarms of them all over us. We were told it was a very wet year and they are bad. Dogs are off leashes on all trails we went on, 6 trails. Suppose to be leashed, but same all story with many camp grounds. Pets are only allowed on certain sections of the camp grounds, we were on the edge of a no pet section, meaning you couldn't walk your dogs in that area, so when you look for a camp site be sure to mark pets. Applies to cats too, we have one. The dump station across from the campgrounds has a bit of a steep section, check it out before deciding where to enter. An owl hangs out here due to the lake next to the dump station. We camped at Promised Land State Park in a Motorhome.

Rock Creek Recreation Area, Erwin, Tennessee

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $17.00
Overall Rating:

another great forest service park! Huge site with level lot. Surrounded by woods on 3 sides and huge old forest around you. One of my top camping areas to date. When you arrive at the entrance to the camp grounds, the cement spring water pool is off to the right ( very cold spring water)and a wooden sign with instructions is on the side of the road. This applies to pay as you arrive people, if you reserved on line just go to your site. A card will be at your site with all your info for your stay, a nice way to do things. The showers take a bit to get use to, you hit a metal button and a mist spray comes on for 1 min. So just keep hitting the button and shower away. The bathrooms were very clean, 2 toilets and 1 shower per unit, and 1 unit per loop. 3 units per the camping area. Sounds like not enough but I think I was the only one using the shower, so it works. 27 electric only sites and 5 double electric only sites. 5 walk in tent sites. Water is available in each loop, you can fill your tanks there. The dump station is just before you exit the camp grounds. We hiked the two trails in the park and they were exceptional, one to a water fall and the other thru old woods and ridges. Great hikes, we did see one bear but he was digging at a tree and didn't care about us. Same old story of dogs not on leashes here as well as other places, only not such a lucky outcome here. A newley owned dog was lost in the woods and wouldn't come to anyone for 5 days, we left so hopefully he was caught. A lesson learned for letting your dogs off leashes at the camps or on trails. It made the stay a little sad. I would return to this campgrounds and explore other trails in the area. We camped at Rock Creek Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

Stony Fork Campground, Wytheville, Virginia

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

We stayed at this park in site 11 for 6 nights. The site was completely level and backed up to a small stream that had trout and lots of wildlife. This is one of the prettiest parks we have been to, large sites, wooded and an abundance of birds and other wildlife to include sugar gliders. All the sites looked great, and many are very private. Lots of bathrooms/showers through out the park. I normally wouldn't use a bathhouse but these were clean and one had a large private room with toilet, shower and sink. This park is well taken care of by 2 sets of hosts, and the location is perfect for a relaxing stay. There are some no electric sites, electric only sites and some with electric and water. You can reserve on line or pay when you get there on an honor system in a drop box, many walk in sites were level and some of the best spots. If I was to go again I would just pay at the park and save the booking fee. There are 2 trails that start at the park, one is just a mile long the other is 6 miles round trip. We parked our vehicle with a bike loaded on it at the other end of the trail, 3 miles from the campgrounds, rode the bike back to the campgrounds and hiked to the car. We did not want to walk 3 miles on the road back. It is a beautiful trail, you walk along the ridge line for a long ways. The dump and water fill is across the road from the park, pay attention to the road going up to it, many have scraped bottom as it's pretty steep from resurfacing the road. You cannot fill in the park as the water hydrants that are by the roads are not able to be screwed on to with a hose. An after-thought, you could back into an empty site that has water hook up and fill?? But the dump station is still across the road. No alcohol rule and quiet hours were a observed. No wifi and spotty ATT service. No cable and our antenna did not pick any channels up. Walmart is 15 min away as well as other shopping. I loved this park! We camped at Stony Fork Campground in a Motorhome.

DeSoto State Park, Fort Payne, Alabama

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $44.00
Overall Rating:

On the weekends, you will not get a discount. During the week we got a 5% for over 62. $88.+ dollars is too much for a 2 night stay, was surprised with the cost for a state park, many added on costs. We stayed 3 nights and the pull thru was so (36) un-level, we had to move after one night. Also little water was at the hydrant. Next spot was great. We left to have some service work done on the RV at Tiffin and returned for 2 more nights, that is when we found out no discount for weekends. The camping spots are huge, wooded and very nice. water pressure is low, not sure why. Bath houses were a walk from every site, but I like that as you had no noise from the bathrooms at your site. If the total price was 35.00 a night I would return. There is a swim pool some where in the area, and a day area you have access to but we didn't use them. The camp ground entrance is gated. There is no size restriction on dogs and there were a lot of huge dogs, 2 were roaming freely. No restrictions on lights and there were a few campers and tents with Las Vegas lighting going on. I saw deer, squirrels and 1 scorpion while we were there, a nice 8 year old that asked if we needed help setting up when we arrived. As others have written, don't go by GPS, instead go to the park's web site and look at their written directions for arriving and departing. WiFi is from the bath house so park close to it if you need it. Most of the pull thoughts were on level. Ask for 62+ discount when you check in even if you have booked on line. We camped at DeSoto State Park in a Motorhome.

Togetherness Works RV Park, Guin, Alabama

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

We stayed at this camp ground as it was close (5 miles) to Tiffin for service worked we needed for our 26 foot RV. I suggest you call when you get within 5 miles of exit 26. The owner can give you the directions as to the conditions at the time, rain, downed trees, accidents, etc. He will be waiting for you at the entrance to show you to your site and check you in. Don't, I repeat don't, use online mapping or other wise. We did that on two different sources and they had us turning on exit 30. My directions were as follows: Exit 26 is where you get off interstate 22, 3/4 mile to stop sign, turn left on 253 south, stay on 253 s, at 1/2 mile you come to a fork in the road, take left side staying on 253s, 3 miles from fork, rv park is on the right. The road to the park is great, no tight turns or bad conditions. Pros: small park campground (8 sites) with full hook ups, water tastes very good. A wooded park-like setting, gravel roads and rv site. It is very quiet here, a bit like a state park in the middle of the week. A wooden platform with bench for grilling or hanging out. Grass on all 3 sides and large enough back in site for a much bigger unit than us. 20/30/50 amp service. Some big rig sites (saw 3 arrive while we were there) and none had issues with roads in park or with parking. Our site was almost completely level, only needed one level block on left side. Know before you book: You will not have swim pools, inflatable children's equipment, go cart rentals, bathhouses, out houses, dry cleaning or laundry service or zip lines. This park is for those that have the ability to utilize their own bathroom/shower and cooking needs. We camped at Togetherness Works RV Park in a Motorhome.

Alpine Hideaway Campground, Pigeon Forge, Tennessee

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

We decided to stay a month (part of May and June) to hike the GSM park, this campground is right at the entrance in Pigeon Forge. The rates are $48 per night or $600 per month for RVs. All full hook ups, to include cable. The bathrooms are brand new, a laundry room is also in the same building. A large salt water pool is at the entrance of the park, and a small store is there as well. Garbage is deposited at the entrance. You are 2 min from shopping and entertainment, but because the camp grounds is nestled back we heard no road noise. You will hear 15 min of fireworks each night at 8:45 pm from Dollyworld. The campgrounds also have cabins for rent of different sizes, bring your own linen. 2 rvs are also for rent. We were happy with the campground and would return.

Mountaineer Campground, Townsend, Tennessee

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $46.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed in this campground for easy access to the national park, and it is close to many trails. Price for our stay was 46.47 a night; 7 nights or more gets 10% off. $45-50 a night before all added on taxes and fees. Please see web site for other prices for cabins and partial hook ups. Laundry room is 2 washers (2.00) and dryers (1.50), they were in constant use the days I tried to do laundry. There are lots of places to do laundry close to the campgrounds.The bathhouse for women have 2 showers, mist spray heads. 3 toilets with shower curtain doors, slide to open and shut. Men's bathroom has 2 toilets, 2 urinals and 2 showers. After a few attempts to use the shower, I decided to use mine in the RV instead. A nice swim pool is on the grounds, it is tided up everyday. It is used a lot, many family's were at the campgrounds. A few wind/rain/thunder storms went thru, and as the campground is covered in large trees, some limbs, nuts and debris fell. One solar panel took a direct hit. This is a very shaded park. Large RVs, 5th wheels and trailers are intermingled with small ones, making you fell like an Oreo cookie at times. The lots are small, as with smaller older campgrounds, and with the modern slides (1-3) most RVs have, its a tight fit. The river side lots have wooden patios overlooking the river, and there are 2 paths everyone can use to get to the river. It's fun to watch the tubers float by or in some cases tip over. Garbage is deposited in the trash bin at the entrance to the park, ice is 2.00 and firewood is for sale as well. I could not get the Wifi to work, I used my cell service instead. Not a deal breaker for me as I like the security of not using free wifi. There is cable TV. No antenna service due to location of camp grounds. You will need to unhook your towed vehicle before the entrance, as the campgrounds become congested. The sites are just to small. Our picnic table was 1/2 under the 5th wheels slide next to us. To book you must call. Unhook tow vehicle at entrance before the office. Get a riverside spot. Watch over head for branches and don't hesitate to ask people to move vehicles to get into your site.

Foothills RV Park, Pigeon Forge, Tennessee

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $44.00
Overall Rating:

The park was hit and miss with the bathrooms, sometimes great then not so great. We had a smoker that used the bathroom as her smoking den, she was reported several times by other women but she kept on puffing. Nothing was done. No discount for anything, to include how long you stay (2-4 weeks). The road noise was something you had to get use to, or stay inside the camper. The people that work at the camp grounds are very nice. They do a great job of mowing, and keeping the grounds clean. The spaces can accommodate 32′ Trailers and 36′ Motorhomes but a tight fit. There is a laundry room, 2.00 to wash and 2.00 to dry. This park is as close as you can get to the GSMNP entrance, so convenient for us as we were there to hike. Grocery stores and shopping is close too. site #27 , it faces the road on a hill with a wooden deck. Full sun and your bedroom is in your neighbors picnic area. So you can hear everything as they can too. I would pick another site with a front yard of grass and in the back of the park. They charge $3.00 per additional person, and $4.00 per additional vehicle. Pick a spot closer to the back to avoid the road noise. We camped at Foothills RV Park in a Motorhome.
