Tipsinah Mounds Park, Elbow Lake, Minnesota

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $41.00
Overall Rating:

Our group had four sites right on the lake plus two tent sites near the beach. The lake sites were a good size and the view was phenomenal. The drawbacks were the ground was all dirt and there are a lot of large oak trees which make it very challenging to back in to some of the sites. The groundskeeper told us that next year he plans to take out some of the problematic trees and put down grass seed in that area. The beach area tent sites aren't really marked as to their boundaries but they are spread apart quite far so they are huge and on lush green grass. There's also many trees in that area and an awesome view of the lake as well. The beach is nice soft sand. There is a floating raft in the lake that the kids loved playing on. There was a wagon ride for the kids in the evening. There is fishing off the dock or you can rent boats, canoes, kayaks, etc. The campground is mostly seasonals. They said they have close to 30 overnight spots, but we only found 16 or so, and half of those are in a large open area with no lake and no trees. This was one of our favorite locations for our family camp out and we had multiple requests from our group to return here. We camped at Tipsinah Mounds Park in a Travel Trailer.

Badgerland Campground, Stoughton, Wisconsin

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

We stayed at eight different camp grounds on our 2 1/2 week trip. This was the most expensive one, but we have stayed here before and really like it. The sites are large and grassy. There is a cute little bar on site. The staff is helpful and friendly, as are the seasonal campers. There is a swimming pond with a trampoline in the middle of it, and a jumping pad on the beach. We didn't have kids with us so didn't use them but they looked fun for kids. It's a very quiet camp ground. We camped at Badgerland Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Charlarose Lake & Campground, Hillsboro, Indiana

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

This is a large campground full of seasonals around the outer perimeter. They have about 30 overnight sites in a square around the play ground in the center of the campground. There are just seven trees for these 30 sites, so it's mostly all sunny. The campground is well maintained with lots of green grass. The staff was nice. The owner's teenage grandson brought us our firewood and he was very nice and professional. There is no WiFi here. The owner said they are "too far out in the boonies" and couldn't get it. Cell signal was minimal as well so we had no internet whatsoever. There is a picnic shelter near the playground. There was about 60 people there playing Bingo. I was disappointed that when we checked in, the owner didn't tell us about Bingo, so we got to listen to it go on for an hour or two, but we weren't invited to play. We camped at Charlarose Lake & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

National Road Campground, Zanesville, Ohio

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

Lots of green grass and trees. The owner here was fantastic. He seems like a very hard working, friendly guy, who runs the whole place himself and is willing to do whatever it takes to make sure you have a pleasant stay. I made reservations for my parents and my family six months in advance and had no communication with the campground in between, but the owner knew who we were by name as soon as we arrived and was eager to help us check in and get situated. There was a wasps nest in one of our electrical boxes so he got some wasp spray and took care of that. Picnic tables and fire rings are not at the sites but the owner offered to bring either or both to us. In the area we were camped there are several tree stumps to beware of. One fell right outside my parents camper door, and another my father nearly hit with the back of his camper when pulling out. The sites across the road from us weren't being used so the owner let us pull our trucks onto the road so that we were situated however was best to be level, avoid the stumps, and to not have to unhook our campers for our overnight stay. We camped at National Road Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Pohick Bay Regional Park, Lorton, Virginia

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

The girl who checked us in rattled off a very fast, rehearsed and monotone speech with all of the information, rules and directions. We didn't catch any of what she said. We stayed here for a week. All of the sites in the loop that we were in circle around and back up to a noisy playground. Most of those sites at least have some foliage separating them from the playground, but our site was wide open to it. If you have young kids with you, site 22 is the place to be, but if you want quiet then you don't want this site. The road is heavily wooded and the site markers are wood poles placed at the corner of the site driveway and the road. This combination makes it very difficult to back in, even more so when there is someone else camping at the spot across the road which parallels the road and is very narrow. We had to go ahead, turn around in a different site, and then drive the wrong direction on the one way road in order to get into our site. The sites are all dirt with woods in between sites. They pick up the garbage at your site every day if you leave it by the road, although I did not see any information about recycling. It's convenient that they have laundry facilities, but we did have to run the dryer through two cycles each time we did laundry (we used both Comfort Stations and it was the same each time). The park/campground is located on a peninsula and I found that location to be somewhat far from anything else we wanted to do. We did enjoy seeing the bald Eagles in their nest at the cove. We camped at Pohick Bay Regional Park in a Travel Trailer.

Sun Valley Campground, Chillicothe, Ohio

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

Circumstances beyond our control caused us to need to find a place to stay at the last minute, and this campground was very accommodating. The owner was very friendly. The campground is beautiful and well maintained. There is a lake across the road. We got two pull through sites (we were two rv's traveling together) which had gravel pads and plenty of green grass between. I don't remember the exact rate we paid with a military discount but I believe it was close to $30. We camped at Sun Valley Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Deer Ridge Camping Resort, Richmond, Indiana

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

I made my reservations the first week of May for two sites for an overnight stay in mid July. I was told there was a Model T event in town but that they could give me two back in sites together. When we arrived they said we only reserved one site. They were still able to get both of us in but we weren't together. The owner seemed happy to give us the military discount without any proof. I don't remember the actual cost with the discount but I believe it was close to $30. We were on the lower pull through site which has a deck and very large grassy area. My parents were on site 46 which was small and mostly gravel. The campground is very woodsy with little grass. The sites vary greatly in size so check out the campground map. My parents had an incident with their camper on the way and the owner did try to be very helpful, suggesting places to call and even checked with us before we left the next day. We camped at Deer Ridge Camping Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Wild River State Park, Center City, Minnesota

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $31.00
Overall Rating:

The park overall is beautiful. It has a nice mixture of woods and prairie, and of course lots of walking trails near and along the St. Croix river. The campground, like most state park campgrounds, is not so friendly to modern day RVs. We have a 29' travel trailer. The campground is densely wooded, so we had a hard time backing into our site with trees all along the road. Once in our site we found we had to make a decision; do we want the awning out on a rainy weekend, or do we want the kitchenette slide-out out? There was a tree just a couple of feet from the front side of the camper so we wouldn't have been able to open the awning. We pulled ahead as far as we could and were able to get the awning out, but then the power box was directly behind our slide-out. The sites are very secluded from your neighbors. Very few sites have any grass. Most are dirt and are quite small, so if you want to play any yard games you'll have to drive to the picnic area. We camped at Wild River State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Bunker Hills Campground, Coon Rapids, Minnesota

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

In addition to the nightly rate, there is an $8 reservation fee, and you will need a vehicle permit ($5 daily or $25 annually). The nice thing about the annual permit is it's good at all Anoka county, Washington county and Carver county parks. When you choose your site on the online reservation system you are able to view an image of the site. We had a great site, large and grassy, but there are a lot of sites that are narrow or mostly dirt. The sites are mostly private with lots of trees and bushes in between them. There are a few sites grouped together that would be good for a group of up to four units plus an additional tent on each site, however, it appeared to be a long walk to the restroom from those sites. There are a lot of trails and a nice playground. We camped at Bunker Hills Campground in a Travel Trailer.

St. Cloud Campground & RV Park, Saint Cloud, Minnesota

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

Camped here with a large group. We had reserved a block of sites together many months in advance, but when we arrived they had moved us around and given away some of our sites. The Rally Center building is very nice and handy to use for group meals and gatherings, especially if it's raining. The restrooms in the Rally Center were very clean, but the light in them is very dim. The sites came with full hook ups and a pull through gravel pad, but they aren't very wide sites. The picnic tables are tiny. Each site has a sunken, small fire pit oddly located just a couple feet from the road, posing a hazard for anyone walking between sites, especially in the dark. There was a nice, large, fire pit in a large open area across from our group's sites that we were able to use. There is a pool but it is closed this late in the year. Aside from a couple of minor nuisances, all in all a pretty decent camp ground. We camped at St. Cloud Campground & RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Burlington Bay Campground, Two Harbors, Minnesota

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

This is a city run camp ground. They are very accommodating in that they let you put extra tents on your site ($10 per night) and have extra vehicles ($5 per night). In the original camp ground, sites 1-66, all of the sites along the lake are very tight. There may only be two feet between your awning and your neighbor's camper. The gravel pads are built up so that they are flat, which makes the ground between each pad sloped up or down, so the small strip of grass you have between campers is not very useful. The tightness of these lake side spots also makes for a very awkward setup for hook-ups. There are hook-up posts at the left edge of the pads, but those are your neighbor's hook-ups. They would be on the wrong side for your camper. So our neighbor's hook-up post was literally underneath our awning. This is not the case with the sites that are not on the lake as they are more spacious. There is not much for trees or shade here. There are trees along side of sites 1-15, and between 48-66 and 67-74. There is a newer section of the campground on the other side of the road. These rows are tiered, so every spot has a great view of the lake, but there are no trees there. The bath houses were clean, but old. The showers have cinder block walls and the only thing providing privacy and security is a thin, plastic shower curtain. The bath house is also quite a way from most of the camp sites. Having a spectacular view of Lake Superior made it worth it for us to sacrifice camp site size. (Note, our first night there was a huge motor home on the lake side next to us, completely blocking our view of anything. The next two nights there was a tent on that spot so we got our view back.) We camped at Burlington Bay Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Overall Rating:

We stayed with a large group in the lower campground. The downfalls are that there is no shade there, and no picnic shelter. The upper campground does have lots of trees and shade. Other than that we were very happy with everything. The owners and staff were great. The sites were good sized. The restaurant is nice and the food was good. There are plenty of port-a-potties and they are very clean as was the shower house. We camped at Buffalo Valley Camping in a Travel Trailer.

Blackhawk Valley Campground, Rockford, Illinois

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

This campground has a lot of open space. The lawn and landscaping are well maintained. The Wi-fi works pretty well at the sites. The sites are quite close together. We enjoyed our one night stay here. The only problem was when we called to change our reservation from Saturday to Friday, there was a lot of confusion and misinformation on their end. They couldn't find our reservation, but told me they didn't have any openings for Friday anyway. When I called later with the date they charged my credit card and told them they had put me on site 52, they said they didn't have a site 52. The woman on the phone was fumbling around with paperwork. Finally she found my reservation under "V" instead of "B", and then she was able to move me to Friday night on the same site. I didn't understand why she told me earlier that they were all booked up when obviously they had an open site, but was grateful to have it figured out. We camped at Blackhawk Valley Campground in a Travel Trailer.
