Kingman KOA, Kingman, Arizona

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $55.00
Overall Rating:      

Different perspective for us on this stay, since we were in a Kamping Kabin instead of a RV spot. The "dog friendly" cabin was pretty rough. It had double bed and a set of bunk beds against the opposite wall. The whole place was probably 10' X 15', and there wasn't much room to maneuver. The floor was pretty worn, and the dust had settled pretty well into the boards. There were significant air gaps around the door that would let in light, heat, and bugs. The unique door latch/handle novelty wore off pretty quick, as you couldn't get in without using two hands, and it was loud and clumsy to operate. Especially if you had to slip out at O dark thirty. There are also no restrooms in the dog friendly kabins, hence the O dark thirty trips out the door. We paid $55 a night for this mini cabin. It's also in a residential neighborhood on a fairly well traveled street. So the road noise from cars is ever present. The grounds were well maintained, but the roads and RV spaces were just fine dirt. They even raked the sites after a RV'er pulled out, bet that too left a ton of dust in the air. A layer of gravel would go a long way towards making it a more pleasant place to stay.The restrooms were clean and in good repair, but a little dated. They are handicapped accessible, and the have a large handicapped stall with a shower and toilet in one room. There is a pool and hot tub, but the sign on the gate indicated that they closed at 7 PM. It wasn't until I went to the office for something the next day that I learned that the hours were until 8:30 PM. They offered free WiFi, but it was a bit sketchy, so I used my Verizon air card. All in all this was not a bad KOA, just not a great one. We camped at Kingman KOA in a Motorhome.

Chattahoochee Bend State Park, Newnan, Georgia

Date of Stay: January, 2017 - $26.00
Overall Rating:      

This is Georgia's newest state park. It is a nice well kept state park, and has been open approx 5 years. We were visiting family in the Newnan area, so the park seemed like a good idea. We didn't realize until we got there just how far out of town this park was! It's was a 20 to 30 minute drive through country roads to get into Newnan proper. Once there the stores and shopping are everywhere, but it is a drive. If you come to stay at the park be sure shop and stock up, as there no just running down to the corner store if you forgot something. Interestingly, our site said that it would hold up to a 40' RV. When we pulled in, the driveway pad had to be at least 100' long not including the tow car parking spot next to it! Why it's listed at 40' is beyond me. Even being fairly remote, our Verizon Air Card worked pretty well. We had a gravel back in site with a gravel patio off of a paved road. There are a few pull through spots available. There is lots of foliage around the sites, but not too close to feel cramped. Each site has a fire pit and a picnic table. There is also lots of mature trees, so pick your site carefully if you want satellite reception. Upon entry you pay your fees, and then take your tag to the campground (about a mile away) and pick a site. Just put your tag on the site post and it's yours. The sites are 50 amp and water in loop one (large RV of any size), and 20 amp and water in loop 2 (small RV's and tents). The restrooms are in good shape and handicapped accessible.There is a kids playground in the RV park, and lots of hiking trails, some of which are still being built. The nights are quiet and dark, great for star gazing. It's a great park if you want to get away and enjoy nature, but rest assured you will never just accidentally wander into it. We camped at Chattahoochee Bend State Park in a Motorhome.

The Great Outdoors RV Resort, Franklin, North Carolina

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $43.00
Overall Rating:      

This is one of the highest rated parks in North Carolina, and with good reason. The owners keep the place immaculate and go out of their way to help you out. It's not a huge park with only 66 sites, but they have done well with what they have. The whole park is terraced so each one of the 4 camping rows steps up a little further up the hill. This makes for nice views and a roomy feel, but there is a down side. Walking the park can be challenging if you have trouble with hills, especially if walking the trash out at night as the dumpster is on the top level. The other issue is that the highway that brings you to the entrance to the park is at the bottom of a long 7 to 8% grade. Since the park is close to the highway, if you get a top row spot, the unmistakable aroma of heated brakes can be detected occasionally wafting through the rows. The roads in the park are paved, but the sites and patio's are gravel. We put a rug out on the patio to soften things up a bit, but had to be careful not to overlap and kill the grass. They had a small gym with some weights and 2 treadmills that we took advantage of, but the pool had already been drained for the winter. Thankfully they offered some terrific WiFi, because our Verizon air card struggled at best. One of the hosts said that this was an AT&T home area, and gets great signal. The restrooms were very nice and handicapped accessible. I would definitely come back to this park. We camped at The Great Outdoors RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Campfire Lodgings, Asheville, North Carolina

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $50.00
Overall Rating:      

This is an "intimate" little RV park, only 18 sites. The first 6 are their "premium" sites and are cement with patios. They also have wonderful view of the valley in back of the sites. The rest of the sites although on a hill are heavily treed, making views impossible. We paid $50 a night for our site which was a "deluxe" site, which was a dirt gravel site with trees, and the site had a picnic table and a fire pit. There is a seating area where you can sit and look at the view or a sunset that is available to all campers. There is also a grass area in back of that for general use. One of the difficulties of getting to this park is the ½ mile steep winding dirt road that takes you up the mountain. The last turn going into the campground is a hairpin. Go slowly if you have a larger rig. Either way, the dusty road will make a mess out of your tow. The restrooms are clean, but dated. Each one is a separate room with a toilet and shower. One is handicapped accessible but there is a small bench by the door that could make entry with a wheel chair tricky. We used their campground Wifi here as our Verizon air card struggled. We did get satellite with the help of my phone app satellite finder. I scoped the satellites between a gap in the trees. If you come here and stay in any of the sites down past the premium sites, when you leave your site there is a turn around at the end of the road you need to go through to head towards the exit. Do not hook your car up if you are in a motor home as you will need to backup at least once to turn around. All in all I liked the campground, but the only way I would come back is if I could get a premium site with a view and a cement pad. We camped at Campfire Lodgings in a Motorhome.

Tanglewood Park Campground, Clemmons, North Carolina

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $33.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed at Tanglewood by a recommendation from a camp host on a Facebook RV and I must say, it was a great referral. The RV park is maintained by the county and is part of a larger extensive public park. The RV park itself is not huge, just 44 sites laid out in 4 rows. All roads and sites in the park are paved and include a paved patio. We were in the first row, site #3 which is the best place to be. In this row the back of your site backs up to a huge grass area, and about 200 yards away is the County parks off leash dog park, which was always busy. This also worked out well for us because to the many mature trees in the RV park, roof top satellite was not possible from almost all sites. Due to the large grassy area behind the site I was able to set up the remote satellite dish and just shoot over the tops of the tall trees. The middle rows of sites, say the 20's and 30's can be a real challenge to level on. The sites slope off dramatically to the back, and since all of their sites except #10 are back ins, motorhomes need to be careful when leveling as to not get both rear wheels off of the ground. The campground restrooms are older, but are clean and handicapped accessible. The Verizon air card worked here, but signal could be sketchy due to the distance from the nearest tower. The sewer connection is a bit high (about 8" tall) and the water pressure can drop to the 20 psi range when the park is full, but these issues are minor compared to the pluses of the area. The campground's season runs from May 1 thru November 30 and then shuts down for the winter. However the last week of November the County constructs a "Festival of Lights" in the adjoining park and should be quite spectacular. We left while it was being set up so we didn't get to see it. One issue is that there are NO motorcycles allowed in the RV park, or the county park. Alcohol is also not permitted in the park, but discreet consumption is possible. We camped at Tanglewood Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Liberty Harbor RV Park, Jersey City, New Jersey

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $83.00
Overall Rating:      

This park is a great place from which to visit New York city, as the Path train picks up about 5 blocks from the park and delivers you to a variety of stops in NYC, including the World Trade Center and Memorial. They get LOTS of business here, even though this park barely rates "parking lot" status. There are RV site markers bolted to the ground to define parking spots. Actually it just allowed them to wedge as many rigs into the available space as possible. The park is W&E only, with a dump station. The sites are heavy small gravel, and the road is paved. There is a bath house on site, but is in serious need of updating. It looks to be handicapped accessible, but there is NO AC in the building, so they are hot. The electric service is easy to see, as all of the wires for the sites are strung overhead on a low wire. Even though we were connected to a 50 amp pedestal, we spent the whole week surviving on 30 amp power due to poor quality wiring. Our surge guard took us off line several times to protect our rig. When I checked the digital display, Line 1 was hovering around 105 volts, but Line 2 was showing 120 volts. I had to run a generator for about 1 1/2 hours to get through the heat of the day. But for the rest of the week we were restricted to 1 AC unit in the heat and humidity. Not really acceptable for $90 a night and gravel. The last day was a real stretch. The heat index was at 103 degrees and 1 AC wasn't cutting it. The office staff are security guards for the parking lot, and fill in registering people in. They do their best, but not really well equipped for this function. The Port Authority which owns the site and adjoining Ferry Terminal have abandoned maintenance on the area. Even though a dock area where various sail and power boats are docked is adjacent to the lot, foot high weeds and trash are everywhere. If it sounds like I am being hard on this place, you would be right! This is one of those places best described as "It is what it is". We camped at Liberty Harbor RV Park in a Motorhome.

Shore Hills Campground and RV Park, Boothbay, Maine

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $53.00
Overall Rating:      

Shore Hills Campground had about 150 sites, all of which are dirt/gravel. Most of the roads are the same so if it rains, some parts can get pretty muddy. I think that we were in a newer loop, as the sites were a little bigger, and some had wood deck patios next to the parking pads. They have about 20 pull through sites in the loop that are advertised as "No rig too big", and they are about 100' long. We had a back in site with patio and fire pit. There is also a picnic table on the deck. Not all sites are full hook up though, some closer to the water are W&E only. We paid $53 a night for our site, and even though we stayed for a week, there was no break on the daily fee. One notable issue though, they do not accept any electronic payments. Cash or check only. The utilities at the sites worked well and were placed conveniently. The restroom facilities though older were clean. However they are NOT handicapped accessible. Raised entry's at the doors and narrow doors would be difficult to navigate. Their showers are also pay showers, like .50 for three minutes. They offered WiFi, but our Verizon air card worked OK. They did have a nice big dog yard for off leash dogs. There is a lake at the campground, but the older wooded sites are on quite an incline and may be difficult to navigate if you have any mobility issues. The nice part about this campground is that we were only a few miles from Boothbay proper and we made several trips in to various shops, stores, and restaurants. I would stay at this campground again. We camped at Shore Hills Campground and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Allegheny River Campground, Roulette, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

We were looking for a campground near Couredersport, PA. This was the most fully equipped park near the town. It is about 8 miles west of town along the Allegheny River. The campground is on the river, and you can fish or tube the river right from the campground property. It is a family owned park, and the owners take a lot of pride in keeping the facilities in good shape. There is tons of grass in the campground, but the owners mow at least twice a week and it always looks sharp. The RV pads themselves could use a healthy dose of fresh gravel though. The gravel is a bit sparse, so the grass is taking over most of the parking pads. There is a dirt/gravel area next to the sites that would be a patio area, but it too needs some more gravel. Curiously the 50 amp full hook up sites are at the front of the park near the road, and there is 10-12 of them. Most of the rest of the sites are W/E only, and are accessed through a remote control gate that are closer to the river. Even many of the seasonal's which are close to the river have no sewer access. There is a decent size pool that looks to be new up by the 50 amp sites. The restrooms are clean and handicapped accessible. I needed to raise the antenna mast to get a usable signal for the WiFi to work well. The campground does offer free WiFi for general surfing and email. We paid $40 a night, which was a bit pricey for the amenities offered. One interesting note though. When we were on Highway 6 about a mile from the campground a black bear about 200 pounds darted from the opposite side of the street running full speed. It cut directly across our path and disappeared into the brush. So yes, there are bears in the area of the campground. We camped at Allegheny River Campground in a Motorhome.

New Bern KOA, New Bern, North Carolina

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $58.00
Overall Rating:      

I stayed at this KOA 6 years ago. This RV park is right on the Neuse river, and even has it's own boat dock and launch ramp to the river. The boat dock and launch are in very good condition, and there are even a few swing benches that let you sit out and view the river from close up if you desire. We were in a premium patio site that was the closest to the river, and our front windshield looked out on the river. However, in the 6 years since we were here last, a lot of the foliage was allowed to grow up in front of the sites, and that great view is almost completely obstructed. The site was dirt gravel, but the patio was cement. Normally that is not an issue, but the dirt of the RV pad has been allowed to build up higher than the patio, and during the regular rains we got during our week stay, the white alkaline mud would wash over the patio, turning it a milky white slippery substance. The site came with a wire patio set, which was nice as I didn't have to get out our chairs. We didn't get to spend too much time outside though, the heat, humidity, and bugs kept us inside a lot. The KOA had all the usual family friendly stuff, pool, playground and bike rentals. There is also a small "catch and release" pond on site, and a mini golf course as well. We paid $58 a night for our FHU site. The park offered free Wifi, but our Verizon air card worked well here. I was a little surprised to see that the bathhouse closest to our site was not handicapped accessible due to small doors and raised entries on the entry door and the showers themselves. There was another facility in the main building, but I didn't get a chance to check it out. The location does have some road noise from Route 17 that fronts the park. So while this park is not quite the "10" that I recall from years past, it is still a nice, well cared for KOA, especially if you have children. We camped at New Bern KOA in a Motorhome.

The Colonies RV & Travel Park, Fort Monroe, Virginia

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $49.00
Overall Rating:      

Fort Monroe is a decommissioned Army fort in 2011 and is now a National Monument. It's called the Colonies because each of the 13 RV sites is named after one of the original 13 colonies when the nation was in it's infancy. Our site for the week was Massachusetts. The fort is surrounded by water, and was first commissioned in 1861, just months after the start of the Civil War. The park itself does not have many of the regular amenities, like a pool, spa or game room. What it does have are paved sites and paved roads. The sites are widely spaced and are full hookup. At the current time only 5 of the 13 sites are 50 amp, but the new owners are in process of adding 50 amp to the remaining sites. Some sites are shaded, but others are more open and sunny. One of the oddities of the sites is that the water hook up is located on the passenger side rear of the site, so at least a 25' water hose is required for hook up. There are some amenities, like some playground equipment, lots of surrounding open grassy area that was well trimmed, and a walking path that ran along next to the seawall on the Chesapeake Bay. The restrooms/showers are clean and handicapped accessible, but there is just one for men and one for women. In between the shower areas is one washer and one dryer. There is a club/restaurant on the site, called the Paradise Club which serves food and beverages. However, the day that we went was our first day arriving at the campground, and it was also the last day of operations for the club as it was closing for the season. On the up side the RV park was spacious and dead quiet at night. On the down side, the heat during the days, and the presence of various biting bugs kept us from spending much time outside. A different time of year may be better. We paid $49 a night plus tax. There is also no Wifi offered at the park, but due to the close proximity of a cellular tower, our Verizon air card was blazing fast. We camped at The Colonies RV & Travel Park in a Motorhome.

Americamps RV Resort (formerly Richmond North / Americamps KOA), Ashland, Virginia

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $55.00
Overall Rating:      

This was another highly rated RV park. While it did have the amenities listed on the web site, the place could really use some sprucing up. Some of the interior roads were paved, but most are gravel, so vehicles can make a bit of dust going by. We were in the "B" section, which was near the front of the park and the pool. The pool was never a problem, but what was a huge detractor for us was the close proximity to I-95. The freeway noise could be overwhelming at all hours of the day and night, and because it is a major highway, even at 2 AM the sounds of trucks and cars racing by was constant. We were parked next to a couple that stays there often, and their solution was to turn on the AC fan in the bedroom and run it 24/7. On the up side, our Verizon air card was blazing fast as the cell tower was only a few hundred yards from the park. The park did offer free Wifi, but I never had the occasion to try it out. The restrooms and showers were clean and handicapped accessible. They also had a new fitness center that is one of the best that I have seen in a while. We had a premium back in site with a patio, and paid $55 a night. All the utilities all worked well, and there was a reasonable amount of room between sites. The rear loops of the park are where most of the long term residents stay, and I must say was much quieter than the front. Some of the interior roads are pretty tight to navigate as well, especially in a larger rig. I had to move our Jeep for one fifth wheel pulling in as he couldn't make the turn to get down the road. The owners are very nice, and on Labor Day Sunday they brought in a games for the kids, and set up tables and starting at about 1 PM a mobile food truck showed up and cooked free burgers and fries for everyone in the park. In spite of the positive points of this park, the freeway noise was just a bit too much for us, and if in the area again we would scope out a different park to stay in. We camped at Americamps RV Resort (formerly Richmond North / Americamps KOA) in a Motorhome.

Gettysburg / Battlefield KOA, Gettysburg, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $60.00
Overall Rating:      

We picked the KOA over the other campground in town because of stellar reviews. Nope, fooled again. I wouldn't say that this is a bad KOA, there was just nothing special about it. When we made the reservation a few months ago we requested a deluxe patio site, and one that was not too heavily treed. Well we didn't get either when we showed up. It turns out that there are only 3 patio sites in the park, and all are long term seasonal people. And there is no such thing as a "lightly treed" site in the park either. The whole park is kind of "tropical" looking with large trees blocking out the sun (and breeze) and foliage between most of the sites. Kind of a good thing/bad thing kinda feature is that the whole park is heavily graveled, which keeps the dust down. The bad part is that every car or person that passes by the rig sounds like they are going to drive right into the living room. Getting to the park is a bit dicey as Knox road is on a blind corner. So making a left onto Knox road requires a great deal of attention to any traffic that may suddenly appear. Our deluxe site ($60.00 a night) was FHU and came with a new glider style rocking chair, and a fire pit (the 90 degree days insured that it was not going to be used). Our Verizon air card struggled to get signal among the heavy trees, but it was still miles ahead of the free Wifi offered by the park. In fact their campground brochure stated "the Wifi may not be reliable, but it is free". That usually means a small personal size router in the office with a guest channel. One positive of this park is due to its location, the nights were dead quiet. The upper bathroom was handicapped accessible, but getting there through the gravel would have been a chore. Satellite was also impossible from anywhere in the park so we reverted to cable. Unfortunately the cable signal had most likely been split so many times that all the channels were fuzzy at best. There are better places to stay in the area. We camped at Gettysburg / Battlefield KOA in a Motorhome.

Cherry Hill Park, College Park, Maryland

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $70.00
Overall Rating:      

Maybe our expectations were too high for this park, because we were not that impressed with it. The park itself was huge, and this was one place where an escort to the site would have been nice. The roads were paved, but all the sites are gravel. We paid $70 a night for a premium site. The other site that were not "premium" looked almost identical to ours. The difference was a small brick patio on our site was a $10 a night bump. We had a FHU 50 amp site, and all utilities worked well. The bath house was clean and handicapped accessible. However, we saw no handicapped accessible camping sites. All the sites were loose gravel and would have been tough to get around on with a wheel chair or walker. The pool and "splash pond" for the kids looked nice, but with all the trips into DC we never got the chance to use them. The maintenance around the park was a bit lax, and the grass was long and weedy. One of the regular complaints about the park was that the employees seemed a bit aloof. That was especially true for the office staff. I had to go into the office several times during the stay to pick up packages. We always got the feeling that we were bothering them. There is a small on site gym that we used one day. However the AC never came on, and the temps and humidity was a killer. It was a one time experience. Our Verizon air card worked amazingly well here, but a cell tower was located right next to the park. One downside to the park was that it is pretty noisy. There are freeways all around the park, and there must have been some construction going on nearby as well. Several times during the night we were awoken by a low rumbling noise that was similar to a low bass speaker. It would continue for an hour at a time, stop and then restart randomly. We never did locate the source of the noise. I would stay elsewhere. We camped at Cherry Hill Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Good Metro Access here and tickets available at the park.

The park itself is also not located in the best of neighborhoods, so for casual dinning or grocery stores you needed to travel a ways.

We were a little sketchy about this campground because some of the reviews it got were pretty rough. In fact one reviewer called it a "dump". But we figured even if it was a bit run down, we were not going to be there that long. So we rolled in expecting the worst. What we found was not that bad. The worst part about the park was that the sites were pretty close together. As for the condition, it looked pretty well taken care of. The grass was cut, and the facilities were freshly painted. The pool and spa were clean and in good order.

The restrooms were clean and handicapped accessible, although a little dated. There is wifi offered, but our Verizon air card worked acceptably. There is a front and a back loop, and the back loop sites are a bit bigger than the front. However, the back is also heavily treed, and we preferred a more open site. We paid $44 a night for a FHU with a gravel pad. The electric was a little weak, but this time it was on Line 2, so we never did have too much of an issue with it. We just metered our use of the rear AC and the washer/dryer, and didn't run them both at the same time. Not a great park, but fortunately not as bad as other reviews had stated. We camped at Philadelphia South KOA (formerly Timberlane Campground) in a Motorhome.

Fishermen's State Park and Campground, Narragansett, Rhode Island

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $35.00

This park is so in demand that most of the sites sell out year to year with the same folks reserving far in advance. The roads and pads are paved, but the patio area is all grass. When we arrived at the park, it was mostly sold out. We found our site and after a little shrub trimming by me, we settled in. While hooking up I had a nice surprise. The on line web site lists only loop 1 as FHU, 2&3 as W&E, and 4 as dry camping. While hooking up I quickly realized that we had sewer as well! It appears that loop #2 had sewer added last year, and the web site has not been updated. The sites were good size, and some had trees and shrubs between the sites. Even though the park is on the coast, only a few sites in loop 1 could actually have a small view of the bay area off of the main body of water. The restrooms are clean but small, and may be handicapped accessible to some extent. The Verizon air card worked pretty well here. The prices were good too, we paid $35 a night for the FHU site. The worst part about this location is that we noted that some of the sites are extremely out of level. The campground is slightly terraced so one end of the site is higher than the other. If you get lucky enough to get a site here, try using Google earth to scope out the sites first. Our site, #51 was one of the more level sites. There were some pretty strict rules that applied to this park, although in the 4 days we were there, not one ranger or park employee came by or patrolled the park. One rule that almost no one cares about in the east, is "absolutely no parking on the grass". The other was "no alcohol permitted in the park". I did actually see folks not exactly adhering to either rule, but no one ever did anything about it. Either way, if you are going to stay in RI, this is a top choice to stay. We camped at Fishermen's State Park and Campground in a Motorhome.
