Blackberry Crossing - WMNF, Conway, New Hampshire

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $22.00
Overall Rating:

This is in the White Mountain National Forest, so no hookups. It has pit toilets which were as clean as a pit toilet can be. That being said...it is a lovely, clean, shaded campground with generally level, spacious sites, which made it fairly easy to back into the site. We were there mid-week, so many spots were open even in July and it was very quiet. Host is friendly and knowledgeable. It is right off the Kancamagus Highway, so access is super easy. A covered bridge is right across the road, and there are swimming holes and hiking trails nearby. Civilization with stores and restaurants (North Conway) is about 15 minutes away. No dump station nearby -- however, we stopped at White Lake State Park on our way home on Rte. 16 South, and you can dump there for $15. We camped here in a 26' trailer. We camped at Blackberry Crossing - WMNF in a Travel Trailer.

Cannon Mountain RV Park, Franconia, New Hampshire

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed here for 2 nights, one night in campsite #7 (in our eyes, the far superior site because you are on the end with lots of space on the site -- did not have the crowds another review talked about) and one night in campsite #2 (one of the worst sites, as it is very cramped and claustrophobic). While the campsites are actually IN the parking lot on the edge, the general location is spectacular. You are at the base of Cannon Mountain right by Echo Lake. There is a small campstore there, public bathrooms, the lake to swim in, paddleboats and canoes to rent, a paved 8.7 bike path to the Flume Gorge, and countless hiking trails nearby, both easy and hard. Also Cannon Mountain has a gondola you can ride to the top in summer. It's in an absolutely beautiful area in Franconia Notch. The campground is right off the highway and very easy to get in and out. Sites are tight but paved and level. While the campsites themselves aren't the most scenic, the area makes up for that. Note: the site was big enough for the trailer, but we needed to park the truck in a parking spot in the lot. We stayed in a 26' trailer. We camped at Cannon Mountain RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

There are endless outdoor things to do here -- just use the campsite as your base. It must be spectacular in the fall with all the colors. Also, I heard that people camp there and ski in the winter (but I think there are no hookups available then?). Also super easy for a one-night stopover if in transit.

Locust Lake State Park, Barnesville, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $37.00
Overall Rating:

Picked this (out of not much choice) for a "quick" overnight as we drove through PA on 81. While the park is really lovely and looks like a great place for a multi-day stay, for a one-nighter, would recommend a different solution. Pluses: beautiful park on pond with swimming area and fishing, shaded sites, electric hookup. Minuses: much harder to get into than looks on a map -- driving through smaller winding country roads to get to park. Sites are tight, heavily treed, and can be hard to get into on narrow campground roads. Sites not level, so needed all the levelers in this one (and that was suggested as a "good site" for us!). We were in a 26' trailer on site 40. We camped at Locust Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Mathews Arm Campground (NPS Campground), Shenandoah National Park, Virginia

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

Stayed here for 2 nights to see Skyline Drive and Shenandoah National Park. No hookups, but has a dump station and fresh water supply. All back-in sites, no drive-thrus. A generator free zone but also lots of sites you can use generators. Pluses: woodsy pretty shaded lots, fantastic advice from very knowledgeable park ranger, wildlife, hiking nearby, campstore nearby, clean, nice hosts. Negatives: very hilly campground -- difficult with the trailer to drive in, drive through narrow road campground, and very few level sites. Had to use levelers, as did many people with campers. Stayed in 26' trailer at site C156. We camped at Mathews Arm Campground (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

Assateague Island National Seashore Campground, Berlin, Maryland

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

Stayed here for 2 nights, one night at A23 (back-in) and the second night at C43 (pull-through). A23 was level but needed to use levelers on C43. But the sites are really fairly flat. Beautiful area and, if you book ahead, there are beach sites. We did have ponies come through the campground on the first night -- didn't see any more until we were leaving and saw a herd crossing the parking lot on our way out. Pluses: location, beach, birding, wildlife, walking trails, good biking, can drive on beach with the right equipment and permit, peacefulness. Minuses: pit toilets (meaning don't pick a site next to bathrooms), bugs (some biting flies during the day, mosquitoes at night), most sites are not shaded. There are no hookups so you are bookdocking here, but they have a dump station and fresh water for your tank. There are generator free loops for those who want them, but also places you can use generator. We went in 26' trailer. We camped at Assateague Island National Seashore Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Holiday Trav-L-Park, Virginia Beach, Virginia

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $66.00
Overall Rating:

This was our first visit to an RV Resort type park. It is HUGE and has hundreds of sites and 4 pools, nightly entertainment (DJs, karaoke, etc.), and a cafe. They have pull-thrus and back-ins and offer water, electricity, sewer and even cable on some sites. Pluses: free parking lot for beach, trolley transport to beach area, free trash bags and pickup at site, excellent laundry facility, clean grounds, shopping and restaurants nearby, many shady lots, level sites, discounts for club members. Minuses: sites are very close together so, if full, would be a bit claustrophobic, the site got very muddy when it rained (deep puddles), bathrooms smelled. We did not use showers or pools so no review. Overall recommend if going to Virginia Beach for vacation. We went for 6 nights in a 26' trailer. We camped at Holiday Trav-L-Park in a Travel Trailer.

Lums Pond State Park, Bear, Delaware

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

As I've read in other reviews, we will rate and review places based upon what they are (this one being a state park) and what they typically offer. We went here on a one night stopover on our way to Virginia Beach. This is a pretty, clean park, fairly easy to access. Sites are generally level and have electric and water hookup. Not too difficult to back in. It's on a pond that you can fish in with lots of turtles. Sites are large enough and not too packed in. The place is treed, and it looks like most if not all sites offer shade. You definitely see your neighbors, but we didn't feel we were on top of them. We did not use bathrooms, so we don't know their quality. There is a very good restaurant nearby called Grain -- definitely recommend. We were in a 26' trailer. We camped at Lums Pond State Park in a Travel Trailer.
