Alps Family Campground, Averill Park, New York

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

First impression was that the sites are very close together. Most of the sites are occupied seasonal. The park is very quiet - some minor noise on the weekends from the pavilion (music and such) but nothing crazy and ended by 9:30/10pm. There are two playgrounds - a toddler lot which is fenced and stocked with lots of fun toys that my kids enjoyed playing with, and a jungle gym for older kids. On the weekends they have hayrides, we didn't participate but plenty of kids looked to enjoy this activity. There is a rec room with arcade games and a pool table though don't mind the fun house effect of the building - apparently it is the last remaining original building with crooked windows and sloping floors. The rec room, store and office are one so if the office is closed, the rec room is closed. There is a new pavilion which looked nice, though we didn't visit. There is also a new bath house and laundry room which was nice. There is a swimming pool which we enjoyed but you have to get the key from the office to use it and when the office is closed and it is 90+ degrees outside it is a bit frustrating. We learned the seasonal campers have keys so we waited until one of them unlocked the gate and then went over. Inconvenient but was the option we had to go with. What we liked more than anything here was how quiet it was. People respect quiet time and mostly keep to themselves which we like. Direct "neighbors" were friendly or not ever there and our site was located near a field so the kids had plenty of room to run and play. Oh... they advertise a walking trail around the pond. If you chose to go, beware of the three bridges. They are man-made and sketchy. One of our family members got pretty scraped up when he fell crossing one. But the trail is well marked. We will likely visit again. We camped at Alps Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We chose this park because it was located close to Albany - only about 20-30 minutes. We got familiar with the country roads and learned to make a day out of heading to town for shopping/food because it was a bit of a drive from the park to the closest grocery store. But there is an ice cream shop along the route that we enjoyed and beautiful lakes to pass by.

Hide-A-Way Campsites, Central Bridge, New York

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

Very quiet campground!! Small, only 55 sites but lovely. Great value! Don't mind the rooster, he lives on a nearby farm and crows all day but makes a good conversation starter. They were the first campground to email us a receipt following our reservation, which was awesome. Their park map is clean and easy to read. 5mph is enforced and appreciated as our little ones wandered within sight throughout the grounds. Many seasonals here but unlike other CG, weekenders mix in well. The kids LOVED the pirate ship playground. The pool looked nice but the weather didn't allow us to swim. Only negative is the water - it has a very strong odor that prompted us to use bottled water for dish washing, teeth brushing and drinking. Even showering felt wrong. I looked up the reason and couldn't find one but assumed it was sulfur well water? Not sure. But would visit again regardless. We camped at Hide-A-Way Campsites in a Travel Trailer.

Brookwood RV Resort, Ticonderoga, New York

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

Family operated, I forget the guys name but he was super helpful on the first day from helping us back into our spot to troubleshooting our hot water heater (new travel trailer and directions were not helping). He even called a friend of his over to help get it running. The store is decent though overpriced. Didn't use the laundry room but it looked decent. Most of the campground is seasonal and reviews before our stay said to beware of the roadside sites given to weekenders. Luckily for us, we got a decent site away from the road and bordering the seasonals complete with shade trees, water, electric and sewer. Plenty of room for the kids to ride their bikes and play but don't trust the playground - not only is it located directly next to the busy road but it is old and doesn't seem very stable. My kids are 3 and 5 and the playset wobbled under their weight. We enjoyed the quiet! We camped at Brookwood RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Laurel Ridge Camping Area, East Otis, Massachusetts

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $42.00
Overall Rating:

Strangest CG we have ever been to! First of all, they have beautiful wooded sites throughout and we were impressed with the many trees and smooth roads, with the charm of the place as many people decorate their sites with plants and such. But don't be fooled. These are the seasonal sites ONLY! The weekend warriors are directed to the front corner "safari field" which is basically a large open hot and sunny field where they jam as many sites are possible together. There is no privacy and we noted that many of the seasonal campers chose this spot to nosily ride their golf carts through and use as their own personal dog pooping field (of which I never saw a single pile picked up). Though we chose a slow weekend and had plenty of stretching out space, we were told that the field gets crazy full around the holidays. The field is outlines with power lines with homemade poles that lean and look just downright unsafe. The power and water are practically combined and the water drips and there was definitely something wrong with the power - we kept having tripping issues when our AC would kick on. The campstore was decent. There was a nice large swimming pool and the kids loved the playground. Don't bother waving or saying hello to the seasonal campers - apart from one, they were all stuck up snobs. We would not recommend this place to anyone, even if desperate. We camped at Laurel Ridge Camping Area in a Travel Trailer.

Pine Hollow Campground, Pownal, Vermont

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $42.00
Overall Rating:

Beautiful park and lovely stay! Would stay here again no problem. Staff was friendly and brought us on a tour via golfcart and let us pick out our own site as several were available. We chose one near the pond and stream and it was relaxing falling asleep to the sounds of water. The pond is small and staff didn't seem too thrilled at the concept of our small children swimming - so we only let them walk through and look for frogs. There were large pines giving plenty of shade, smooth pine needle covered sites and plenty of grass for our little ones to run and play. The swingset is in the sun - so not very useful and is quite boring. The restrooms are clean but wear water shoes in the shower. We didn't and the womens showers smelt like urine. The picnic table at our site was in need of replacement, too. The roads to the CG were scary but doable. We camped at Pine Hollow Campground in a Tent Trailer.

We swam at Shafsbury instead as it wasn't too far a travel to and from.

Greenwood Lodge and Campsites, Bennington, Vermont

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

Stayed here one night and were overall happy with our experience. The place is family owned and though the family is friendly they are also a bit strange. The son visits each site daily as he empties the trash and recycling from each site. Follow their rules to a T or he will report back to his parents on every single broken rule. We caught him watching us a few times and overheard him telling his mother details about our neighboring campers, things he had seen while out. The dad drives his tractor around every morning, so expect to be woken to that. There is WiFi at each site, as well as water and electric but no sewer - though there is a dump station. Sites are large and semi-private. They advertise three ponds but we only found two - don't expect to swim. We lucked out with a wooded site but many are in the hot sun. Overall pleasant. We camped at Greenwood Lodge and Campsites in a Tent Trailer.
