Kiser Lake State Park, Saint Paris, Ohio

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $24.00
Overall Rating:

Been a couple years I think since I last posted about this campground. This year they added 10 paved 50 amp Pull throughs. Most of these are 100' long sites with plenty of room for rv and toad or Pull vehicle. These 10 electric sites were added over the 2017 winter and were available for use this year. So in total there are now 20 electric sites. The other 10 electric sites are older and tighter and short. The lake is still plagued by lily pads around the edges but dredging is suppose to be on the schedule. The naturalist does a great job with the kids with all kinds of projects. If you are from out of state, there is no access fees like many states charge. If you are from Ohio and have a golden buckeye card for being 60 you can get 50% off during the week if you reserve on line. We camped at Kiser Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

A W Marion State Park, Circleville, Ohio

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

Small outdated park. You have to drive through a rural residential area to get here. Sites are narrow and short, and few are anything close to level. We stayed in site 56, had to back the motorhome up to the block and the jacks are over the edge of pad. Probably 2-1/2 -3' off ground. Very quiet with mostly just woods noise, quite relaxing. Trails around the lake and a marina. I was told the small mouth fishing is good. If you decide to come, make sure you set your coordinates for the campground because it is across the lake from the marina and to get there you have to drive 5.5 miles around the lake if you go there first. Camp host was less than friendly. We waved, he ignored. :/ Camp store wasn't open when we arrived Sunday 3pm. Receptacles are all old and crusty looking but the power was steady and reliable. They didn't tag our site as reserved but had tags for the weekends already on the post. The road leading into the campground needs some serious pot hole filling. Speed limit says 20 if you go over 5 you will be sorry. Having said all that, it is still a nice quiet campground to get away too. On Sunday there were only 5 campers here. Nothing really nearby to see. A couple other state parks within 40 miles. Convenient to launch a kayak or canoe, there is a road in the campground that leads down to the lake. Questionable launching though, lots of mud. There is a nice restroom on the road coming in and they have portajohns around the campground. Small playground for kids. There is a dump station and a couple different places to get water. We camped at A W Marion State Park in a Motorhome.

Pymatuning State Park, Andover, Ohio

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

It's a nice park but a bit crowded, although the sites are decent size there really is no separation from your neighbors. Nice having a boat ramp right in the campground. There is a small beach although we did not use it the kids enjoyed it. We would consider staying there again. There is a pair of nesting eagles yearly in one part of the campground and they shut that part off during the raising of the eaglets. They were pretty close to being fledglings, we were in the kayaks and you can see them and the nest from the water. Site was off level front to back by probably 10" over the wheel base of our 30' motorhome. We camped at Pymatuning State Park in a Motorhome.

Grand Lake St Marys State Park, Saint Marys, Ohio

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

We were in the loop with full hookups. Service was good, good power and good water pressure. Sites are not very level at all. Had a large site as we were on an end.

Lake is disgusting. Has been affected by Blue Green Algae for last 5-6 years. Emerald green water, signs saying avoid all contact with water.

Lots of camp hosts who are very friendly. We camped at Grand Lake St Marys State Park in a Motorhome.

Kiser Lake State Park, Saint Paris, Ohio

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $23.00
Overall Rating:

There are only 10 hookup sites, all pull through. All have 50 amp, no water, no sewer available. They fill up quick in the summer months so you need to reserve as soon as you know you are coming.

Lake is within walking distance at about 150 yards but there are lots of lily pads along the east shore. Limited ranger patrol as this is a small lake and they work out of Springfield. The local Game Warden does patrol as well. Now the Watercraft division is seen pretty regular.

Pit toilets only no showers. Dump station with potable water is available.

Good clean power.

Fishing is popular but can be tough fishing, large strippers have been caught here. Osprey are often seen diving for fish along with lots of deer and Blue Heron.

There are no motors: electric or gas allowed on the lake. It is a nice scenic lake to canoe, kayak or take a row boat out on, along with sail boats. Boats are available for rent at the marina and bait store. Lake is 2.5 miles long. You can leisurely kayak around the shore in about 3 hours. We camped at Kiser Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

Piatt Castles not far away, Air Force museum 25 miles. Town of Saint Paris 5 miles, couple historic houses, the Kiser mansion is on main street and has been refurbished and the original owners were the ones who donated the land for the park.

Glacier View RV Park, Smithers, British Columbia

Date of Stay: July, 2013 - $24.00
Overall Rating:

Very clean park with a great view of the glacier. Nicely kept up and nicely manicured. Lady running the park is very nice and accommodating. We would definitely stay here again and make it our choice if in the area. Great price for service. We paid $24 full hook ups. WiFi did reach our RV in spot 5 along the fence and was good enough to retrieve mail which was all we needed. Consider this park you won't be disappointed. We camped at Glacier View RV Park in a Motorhome.

Mariner Park, Homer, Alaska

Date of Stay: June, 2013 - $15.00
Overall Rating:

This is what you expect for a city campground, no hookups but an inexpensive place to stay. If you get parked facing the ocean it is a great view. Negatives are the road is noisy till after the shops close on the spit and of course the usual inconsiderate campers that you have every where you go. Quiet time is 11pm -7am and some fired up generators at 5am. If noise is not a problem it's a cheap place to stay and you can stay at least 7 days. If you pull out though you will certainly lose your spot, it's like vultures on a kill site. We camped at Mariner Park in a Motorhome.

Nice view of the ocean, worker very polite. We only got electric but the view made up for it! Close to eating places to walk to. Being at end of the spit the traffic noise was not a problem. We camped at Homer Spit Campground in a Motorhome.

Denali Riverside RV Park (Privately Owned), Denali National Park, Alaska

Date of Stay: June, 2013 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

We were backed up against the shops. Sites aren't very level, lots of noise, and people walking through your site to get to shops. Shops employes walk through your site dragging trash to dumpster. A semi parked in front of our rig for 2 hours starting about 7 am to unload merchandise for shops. There was lots of throwing stuff around in box truck, banging and obsessively noise. We couldn't get out of our site till they left. I had a dental emergency and needed to leave for Anchorage a day early, but their policy is no refunds whatsoever. It is convenient to the park that is the only reason I gave it a 3 We camped at Denali Riverside RV Park (Privately Owned) in a Motorhome.

Gettysburg Battlefield Resort (Travel Resorts of America), Gettysburg, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: September, 2008 - $1.00
Overall Rating:

We have a membership at this campground and have stayed there for a week at a time last couple of years. They are constantly improving the campground with membership fees. A lot of the sites are off level and most are all gravel. Water pressure is low, electric is good, our site this year the sewer was uphill. Lots of kids on the weekends and the noise that goes along with it but they are good about maintaining quiet during restricted hours. We camped at Gettysburg Battlefield Resort (Travel Resorts of America) in a Fifth Wheel.

Sandy Pond Campground, Plymouth, Massachusetts

Date of Stay: September, 2008 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

For our RV the connections were difficult, water and electric are near front of site where they put us. Have to pull pretty far into site to hookup. Definitely off the beaten path but was quite. Lots of permanent campers but it was late September and not many were there. We would probably stay there again. We camped at Sandy Pond Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Little Farm On The River LLC, Rising Sun, Indiana

Date of Stay: August, 2008 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

We placed our request for a reservation online, said they would call. That never happened, 5 days later I called and left a message, still never called. Got here and found out they did not have the spot we requested. We prefer to camp along the river, now the largest majority of river sites are taken by permanents. Our permanent camper showed up Saturday afternoon late. First thing we noticed is they like to play police and yell at people they think are going to fast. They do not police themselves at night past the 10pm quiet time, with partying and their kids yelling. They then at 11pm tied a young puppy outside their trailer and left. Dog barked and howled for 45 minutes before they came home. I tried calling the owner and they don't answer the phone at night. I was going out to my truck to go wake the owner up when one of the kids came back and put the dog in the trailer. Too many strikes for us. We use to love this campground. We will never come back now. It is becoming a community and not a campground. My rating is for utilities, operation is a 1. We camped at Little Farm On The River LLC in a Fifth Wheel.
