Scenic Hills RV Park, Millersburg, Ohio

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

Ample parking for multiple rvs during check-in. Very friendly lady checked us in and suggested some local attractions. Campground is mostly gravel with not much in the way of shade or landscaping. Not very scenic at all. Although there's a clear view of the high school across the street. Wide gravel road made backing into our site a breeze. Electricity was 121 volts and water was 40 psi. Wifi signal surprisingly strong. Unable to get any over-the-air tv channels. Good location for visiting many Amish attractions. Getting back onto Rt 39 can be tricky due to heavy traffic and a blind hill. We camped at Scenic Hills RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Findley State Park, Wellington, Ohio

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $34.00
Overall Rating:

$26.00 per night plus $8 Reserve America fee. Visited this campground for one night while traveling through. Very nice entrance off Rt 58. Nice, winding road back to the campground. Sign at registration office directed us to the Nature Center. Nobody was at the N.C. either so we proceeded to our reserved spot. Not at all what we expected. Site was definitely not the advertised 50' in length. We knew there weren't full hookups but expected to at least have water. Not so. Just electric. It's 2016...time to add water to each site. Quiet at night. Overall, pricey for just a little spot with an electric hook-up. Probably won't stay again when passing through the area. We camped at Findley State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Adventure Bound Camping Resorts - Shenango (Formerly Shenango Valley R, Transfer, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: May, 2016 - $56.00
Overall Rating:

Single lane registration in front of office. Possible bottleneck for incoming traffic.

The office is shared with the most complete and well-stocked campground store we've seen to date. Very friendly lady checked us in. Escorted to site.

The campground is very hilly. You are either going up or down no matter where you are in this park. Surprisingly level site. No side-to-side leveling was needed for us, however, we did notice many of the seasonal units were using multiple blocks on one side. This park has a ton of seasonal units throughout. Some look well cared for. Others...not so much.

Water pressure was 60 psi. Power was good. Cable was poor. Not sure if that's a problem throughout the park or just a bad hookup at our site.

The wifi signal is weak and how they manage it is disappointing. You are given an individual password at check-in that allows you to access wifi on only 1 device. Do not use your phone on their wifi. The system will detect it and lock you out. If multiple members of your party want to use wifi on a tablet or laptop, you're out of luck. The password registers the first device and will not allow other devices to join using the same password. Hugely disappointed with their approach.

Put on your hiking shoes because you'll need them just to get around this park. We were located where they put short-term campers (400 Loop) and, from there, everything is up hill. Literally. On a positive note, you'll get in some aerobics walking up to the Snack Shack.

The Snack Shack offered a variety of food items. The pizza was decent.

Daily rates are on the high side, but that is something we've noticed with campgrounds that are only open part time. There's a need to generate revenue during the short camping season.

Overall, a very nice campground. We've read many positive comments about Shenango Valley and wanted to give it a try. Glad we did. We camped at Adventure Bound Camping Resorts - Shenango (Formerly Shenango Valley R in a Travel Trailer.

Holiday Travel Park of Chattanooga, Rossville, Georgia

Date of Stay: April, 2015 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

Fairly easy access from I-75. The road leading to the campground is a little narrow with just enough hills to make for many blind spots with oncoming traffic. This is a busy road and many people are driving way too fast.

Entrance to the cg is very wide with plenty of room for a large number of registering guests. The office is big, nice, and well-equipped if you should need supplies. Very pleasant staff.

Interior gravel roads are very narrow with tight turns. Be aware of this if you have a long rv. Sites are narrow and very close together in the pull-thru area we were assigned. Very poor drainage. Standing water made getting hooked up to utilities a balancing act using some concrete blocks in order to keep my feet out of the muddy water. Wifi was completely unusable.

Our pull-thru site was barely long enough to accommodate our 41' 5th wheel. Our truck had to be parked sideways across the site in order to keep the front end clear of the roadway.

Good for a quick overnight stop. Wouldn't like to be there long-term. We camped at Holiday Travel Park of Chattanooga in a Fifth Wheel.

Lebanon/Cincinnati NE KOA (formerly Cedarbrook Campground), Lebanon, Ohio

Date of Stay: September, 2014 - $44.00
Overall Rating:

I really wanted to like this campground. Unfortunately, there were too many negatives that started right at the entrance. The entrance is very narrow and only allows one way traffic. Then you have to make a sharp left turn to get to the office, which is down another narrow and hilly road. I couldn't believe the number of very tight turns down narrow gravel roads that were required to reach our site. And then there were those darn trees and their low-hanging branches. The sites are very narrow with branches hanging low over them. We could not position our 5th wheel anywhere on our site without branches hitting the sides and top. After setting up I climbed on the roof and found the branches had scratched up both a/c covers. Our RV is brand new. Very disappointed this happened. No discounts are offered. Wi-Fi is available if you purchase one of six different plans offered by an off-site commercial provider. You have to set up an account and pay online. I will say that the signal was very good. No cable, but over-the-air signals were strong. We will not be back. We camped at Lebanon/Cincinnati NE KOA (formerly Cedarbrook Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

Shipshewana Campground - South Park, Shipshewana, Indiana

Date of Stay: June, 2014 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

We enjoyed most things about this campground in beautiful Shipshewana. Great location, good voltage, good water pressure, friendly office staff, and long pull-thru sites. Wifi was unusable for us so we had to use data during our entire stay. Now for the negative. The old lawnmower guy needs to chill. Mowing the same areas every other day does nothing for the grass or peacefulness of the campground. When not mowing, he'd ride around the park just looking at things. The mower could be heard all over the campground and really destroyed this otherwise peaceful setting. My rating of "6" comes from unusable wifi but mostly because of mower man. Not sure we'd stay here again. We camped at Shipshewana Campground - South Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Flamingo Lake RV Resort, Jacksonville, Florida

Date of Stay: May, 2014 - $41.00
Overall Rating:

We chose this park due to positive reviews we read here and elsewhere. It was a convenient location for our travels so we decided to give it a try. We didn't know until arrival that there was a Boots On The Ground event happening that same weekend with an estimated 500 bikers present. I ride myself so I'm not at all bothered by bike noise or bikers. I've camped at Sturgis and Daytona. The site we reserved was given to someone else. The site they gave us worked well. All utilities were problem-free. Interior roads were very crowded with cars and trucks. People were very good about spotting for us as we squeezed by. We got to our site very slowly but without problem. We did not have an opportunity to relax and explore the grounds as there seemed to be a high level of activity all day and night. It was hot and all the bikes, trucks, and golf carts were kicking up a lot of dust. The biggest disappointment was all the golf carts. Adults driving around most of the day and night while drinking. Then they would turn them over to their kids who would see if they could catch some air over the speed bumps. Unfortunately, one of those speeds bumps was at our site. We were treated to the full effect of the screams and laughs from those reckless kids. We didn't have an opportunity to see all the positives we expected when we planned this visit. The place was a mad house. Great for business, not so great if you weren't there for the big event. Just glad our trip was brief. We may give Flamingo Lake another shot in the future. This visit just left a dusty taste in our mouth. We camped at Flamingo Lake RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Tallahassee RV Park, Tallahassee, Florida

Date of Stay: May, 2014 - $41.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed for 2 days while passing through the area. An odd series of s-turns getting into the park and up to the office. If several RVs arrive at the same time, then there's going to be a road block preventing other traffic from coming and going. Very nice staff at check-in. Helpful and friendly. The area around the office is well cared for. There are a lot of long term residents at this park. They are packed in like sardines with awnings coming within inches of their neighbor. One awning was actually rubbing up against the slide of the next RV. The area where they put short term guests is a little better but still too close together. The good thing is that the sites are long. Interior roads are paved and sites are gravel. Mostly level. Utilities worked well. WiFi was okay. Very convenient to I-10. Would only stay again for an overnight or last resort. Not an impressive park, just a good location. We camped at Tallahassee RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Destin West RV Resort, Fort Walton Beach, Florida

Date of Stay: December, 2013 - $64.00
Overall Rating:

This is an exceptionally well-maintained resort! The staff is awesome in all the important areas: friendly, courteous, helpful, attentive, and go the extra mile. They pick up garbage at your site any time of day up to around 4:30. They hand deliver mail to your door! They can be seen walking around the resort tidying up all day long. At our site, electrical power was good. Water pressure maxed out at 40 PSI. Would have liked for it to be a little better. Wi-Fi is spotty at times. Noise from Hwy 98 (Miracle Strip Pkwy) can be heard at all hours of the day. Not too bad, though. Fudpucker's restaurant is next door and there is a fence walk-through from the resort. Guests are allowed to use the Ramada across the street for beach access, exercise room, etc. The only downside is the exercise equipment is dated and in poor shape. The biggest problem with the sites is the location of the pad with the picnic table. On many sites we saw, the pad is not where the RV awnings are, rather, placed more toward the front of the site. When you back all the way into the site, the pad is now at the front of your RV. Not useful if you want to sit out under your awning. When you exit your RV you step right into wood chips. There's not enough area to place your chairs under the awning. This is a poor design. Big rig friendly. The largest of RVs can easily maneuver here. Paved road and all sites are decorative brick and level. No shade but nicely landscaped. Heated pool is kept warm in winter. We really enjoyed out stay and will be back when visiting this area. We camped at Destin West RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Gunter Hill COE, Montgomery, Alabama

Date of Stay: November, 2013 - $22.00
Overall Rating:

What a pleasant surprise this place was! It was an overnight stop for us and we now wish we had planned to spend a few days more. Campground looks new. Great interior roads. Concrete site that was perfectly level. Gravel area on door side of site. Nobody at front office during our arrival at 1pm. Sign instructed arrivals to proceed to site and check in later. Because we weren't able to secure a map, it took a little driving around to find our site. There are no signs directing you to loops or site numbers once you get beyond the main gate. Our site was beautiful. Right next to the river. Very scenic. Plenty of space between sites. A really well planned campground. Thumbs up to the COE. We stayed in the Catoma Loop and would stay again. We camped at Gunter Hill COE in a Motorhome.

River Plantation RV Park, Sevierville, Tennessee

Date of Stay: November, 2013 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

Easy entry from the very busy road out front. Steep grade leading down to the campground. Plenty of space for check-in. Very friendly personnel in office during check-in. Only the perimeter road is paved. All interior roads are gravel. Most of the sites are gravel with the exception of those occupied by long-term residents. Gravel sites not completely level. Sites have sewer hook-ups at the back and mid point for easy connections regardless of RV type. Nice touch. High water pressure. Good cable. Wi-Fi is sporadic. Found ourselves continually having to switch between multiple Wi-Fi channels that they offer. When connected, signal strength wasn't very strong, but acceptable. Voltage at pedestal was very low. Consistently 108 volts throughout stay. Luckily, we didn't need our a/c this time of year. But our breakers would trip several times a day when using 2 appliances at once. Ground covered with leaves due to time of year. No problem with that. The problem was with ground maintenance guys who rode around on mowers chopping up the leaves and blowing the mess around. If they're not going to rake them up, just leave them alone! Leaf dust and debris from their mowing was all over everything we had outside. Campground is close to everything in the area. Noise from roads in front and behind the campground can be heard at all hours. The appeal of this campground is its proximity to the tourist activities of the entire area. It's a large campground and big rig friendly. Nothing flashy, but provides visitors with full hook-ups, cable, Wi-Fi and access to fun. We would stay again. We camped at River Plantation RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Gulf State Park Campground, Gulf Shores, Alabama

Date of Stay: October, 2013 - $31.00
Overall Rating:

A massive campground for a state park. Very big rig friendly. Plenty of space between sites. Quiet and dark at night. Perfect for relaxing and sleeping. Ample interior roads for bike riding. Hiking trails, as well. Numerous restaurants in the areas of Gulf Shores and Orange Beach. Extremely friendly staff. Check-in area provides plenty of room for numerous RVs simultaneously. The Wi-Fi is virtually nonexistent, at least where we were even though a Wi-Fi repeater could be seen from our RV. This was frustrating because there is no cable, as well. There are a dozen or so over-the-air TV stations, but a majority are either Spanish speaking or religious. Unless you're into sitcoms on NBC or CBS, your viewing options are limited. Satellite TV is highly recommended. Clear view of the sky is easy to obtain since there are no shades trees. This is a very nice campground with a few limitations. If you're not concerned with Wi-Fi or cable, then this could be your mecca. We like to stay in touch with family and friends scattered around the US and Europe. Having internet access is something we value. Luckily, we have an iPad with a data plan so we did have access. But the park advertises Wi-Fi and it was practically useless during our entire stay. Usable about 5% of the time. We camped at Gulf State Park Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Santa Rosa RV Resort, Navarre, Florida

Date of Stay: October, 2013 - $65.00
Overall Rating:

This is our second stay at this resort. Pros: The resort is laid out well. Wide streets with ample room to maneuver into your site...even with a big rig. Sites are close together but there is plenty of room for slides and awnings. There is no shade whatsoever so summer visits are terribly hot and the a/c runs continuously. Palm trees are spaced throughout the park for aesthetics. Nice view of the sound from the waterfront sites. Staff are excellent. Always friendly and helpful. Cons: Road noise from Hwy 98 that borders the resort and is heard pretty much 24 hours/day. Wi-Fi struggles to keep up with demand when the park is full. You may find yourself giving up in frustration waiting for pages to load. Greater bandwidth is badly needed. Demand on electrical power is felt when the park is full. Voltage drops are common and breakers trip randomly even when there is no change in appliances being used. We've experienced this during both visits but have not had this happen at other campgrounds/resorts. On this most recent visit all washer were out of service. Very odd that they would all go out at the same time when they were all working just a week ago. A rating of "7" is due to insufficient Wi-Fi bandwidth, low voltage at site, and all washers being out of service. Road noise is not the fault of St. Rosa Sound. We camped at Santa Rosa RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Florida Caverns State Park, Marianna, Florida

Date of Stay: April, 2012 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

The good: The cavern tour, the rangers, full hook-ups. The bad: Mosquitoes and gnats were relentless. Even covered in bug spray we were nothing more than a delicious challenge. The campground consists of one relatively small loop. The sites are perpendicular to the road so backing in can be a challenge for larger rigs depending on your site. Wooden posts are right up next to the road so be careful when swinging the front of your rig around when backing in. Very limited biking within the campground. Venture onto the park roads and you take your life in your hands. The posted speed limit is ignored by virtually everyone behind the wheel. There's really nothing to do other than seeing the cavern, which is awesome. Once you've checked that off your list be prepared to entertain yourself. I would love to say more positive things about this state park but I expected more and was disappointed. We camped at Florida Caverns State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Henderson Beach State Park, Destin, Florida

Date of Stay: November, 2010 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

We have camped at Henderson Beach numerous times and have never been disappointed. The camp hosts do a great job of keeping everything clean. I'm so impressed with the bathroom/shower. Even if you don't need to use them just go inside and take a look. This is how all campgrounds should be maintained. The proximity to Destin means there are many shops and restaurants from which to choose. It would be a shame to come to Destin and not experience some local seafood. A short walk to the beach is a nice way to end the day and you'll find other campers there watching the sunset. We camped at Henderson Beach State Park in a Tent Trailer.
