Pigeon Forge / Gatlinburg KOA, Pigeon Forge, Tennessee

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

The people at the front desk were helpful and friendly. The park was quiet, especially considering it is close to Dollywood. Not far to the MANY attractions and restaurants on the main road through Pigeon Forge. Parking for our tow car was tight - had to park sideways in front of the motorhome, very near the narrow interior road. We camped at Pigeon Forge / Gatlinburg KOA in a Motorhome.

Pigeon Forge is a tourist "Mecca" - so many restaurants, mini-golf courses, go-kart tracks, etc, etc, etc. Dollywood is nearby on the same road as the park. 18 miles away is the Bush Beans Visitors Center (hit it up on the way in if you are coming from that direction) - we enjoyed it!

Asheville's Bear Creek RV Park & Campground, Asheville, North Carolina

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $45.00
Overall Rating:      

Odd park - there were RVs and tents in every nook and cranny. We got up one morning to find a tent in our site, about 5 feet from the front door of our motorhome (??). Other campers walk through your site like no other park I've seen. The site we were in was quite close to the highway - some of the pull-through sites front the highway. The young lady who checked us in seemed to be about 14, but very efficient. I thought there was a driveway next to our site, but a 45' motorcoach pulled in there - we were so close, I could touch his slide out from our slide out. He couldn't put out his awning on the other side. Most of the sites have more room than that... luck of the draw. There were RV and tent sites right by the propane fill tank (seems unsafe to me). We were here for 4 nights - I was definitely ready to move on. We camped at Asheville's Bear Creek RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Asheville is a great city - plenty to do here: the Biltmore area, River Arts Area, interesting downtown. The hop-on/hop-off trolley was a good way to get an overview. No shopping or restaurants close to the RV park, but plenty to chose from with a drive. The WNC Farmers Market is a mile or so from the park.

Fort Chiswell RV Park, Max Meadows, Virginia

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

Just a two night stay for us, but a good location. Site was level (gravel), with grass between the sites, and a picnic table. Some shade. Utilities all good. The site was long enough for our motorhome and tow car. Not far from the Interstate, but quiet (not much road noise). We camped at Fort Chiswell RV Park in a Motorhome.

Luray KOA (formerly Luray RV Resort Country Waye), Luray, Virginia

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $60.00
Overall Rating:      

This park is a delight! From the friendly folks in the office to the relaxing rural setting, one of our best RV park experiences in quite a while. We were in a back-in site up the hill from the tenting area - the view was nice, the sites had plenty of room, and blissfully quiet. At one point, a young lady in a golf cart was going site to site, using bleach water to clean off the picnic tables - never seen that at any other RV park. Nice pool area. Good laundry facilities. Reasonably close to Luray for shopping and restaurants, and good access for exploring Shenandoah National Park. We camped at Luray KOA (formerly Luray RV Resort Country Waye) in a Motorhome.

Cherry Hill Park, College Park, Maryland

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $63.00
Overall Rating:      

In over 3 decades of RVing, this is the best run, most efficient RV resort we have stayed in. If you aren't in a premium site, you can easily extend your stay (we did, twice) with no fuss. The sites are gravel, with good utilities. All the amenities you'd expect in a first class RV park, PLUS staff who can tell you how to get the most out of your time getting to and exploring around Washington DC and the area.

The park has a daily 4:00 "briefing" that is well worth attending. They will tell you how to use the public transportation (subway and bus - and it was great!). Book the evening trip on their bus (also available through Gray Line, but their bus has a guide who gets off the bus with you) into the highlights of DC.

I would definitely stay here again. We camped at Cherry Hill Park in a Motorhome.

Hersheypark Camping Resort (formerly Hershey Highmeadow Campground), Hummelstown, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $79.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a delightful $35/per night park - unfortunately, the price is just over twice that. The sites are snug. What it does have going for it is the connection with Chocolate World and the Hershey amusement park - there is a shuttle bus that takes you from here to the Hershey Parks. Nice pool area that we did not use - as you might expect, it is full of screaming kids during the summer (and probably doing other things in there besides screaming). The sites are narrow enough that you get plenty of smoke from the fires at nearly every site. In the heat. Not cooking anything. But, did I mention the very convenient shuttle bus? We camped at Hersheypark Camping Resort (formerly Hershey Highmeadow Campground) in a Motorhome.

Of course, the nearby Hershey Park is the reason to be here. Even if not doing the amusement park, there are plenty of things to keep you busy at Chocolate World (interesting historic trolley tour, make your own chocolate bar, chocolate tasting, 4-D movie (mostly for kids)). Decent shopping and restaurants not far from the RV park.

Tri-State RV Park, Matamoras, Pennsylvania

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

This was just for an overnight stop. We picked this park for the easy off/easy on highway access. We hung out on both the front and back of our site, but we didn't have any traffic in the park. Road noise was LOUD. Close the door, turn on the a/c, and turn the TV up loud to drown out the road noise. Cable was mediocre. They had better sites, but this is what we got... in fact, there are about 4 sites that overlook the river; the rest are pretty much a gravel parking lot. We had to be very careful when putting our awning out to keep from touching the window awnings on the coach next to us. We camped at Tri-State RV Park in a Motorhome.

Pinewood Lodge Campground, Plymouth, Massachusetts

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $59.00
Overall Rating:      

Our site was a back-in that was a bit off the road. We had to block up the front of the coach (even with jacks), since the site wasn't level. No breaker at the power box. Decent sewer connection. Very wooded. The staff in the office was friendly and efficient. Quite smokey from all the campfires. We camped at Pinewood Lodge Campground in a Motorhome.

The whale watching trip through Captain John's was a delight (coming from a retired boat captain). We enjoyed walking around the waterfront area at Plymouth, since it wasn't as crowded as other places we stayed in Cape Cod area. Good restaurants in Plymouth. Not too far from a Walmart (less than 5 miles). In order to get a decent Verizon signal, we had to use a booster (we don't use the campgrounds' wifi).

The folks in the office were a delight, and offered good suggestions for where to eat, what to see and do. The park is heavily wooded, so we couldn't use our satellite TV, but the cable there is good. Our site was a back-in that was downhill from the road, but access was easy. We camped at Hemlock Grove Campground in a Motorhome.

Bar Harbor Campground, Bar Harbor, Maine

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $46.00
Overall Rating:      

They don't take reservations, and they don't accept credit cards. We called ahead to get an idea if there would be a site available. It is an interesting situation, much like in the past in the National Parks: arrive, go find a site, put something on that site, then go register. We got here at 9:30 am, and it was already "a chase" with people looking for a site. Once in, you can change sites, so that "chase" happens most mornings. Very wooded, but we were able to find an opening to get satellite TV. We camped at Bar Harbor Campground in a Motorhome.

There is a shuttle bus that picks up at the entrance to this park - nice, because finding a place to park in Bar Harbor is a real pain. This is the closest park to Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor, and reasonably priced for the area. Boat trips out of Bar Harbor are interesting. Great bike paths (on the carriage roads) in Acadia! A Walmart in Ellsworth (on your way in or out).

North Beach Campground, Burlington, Vermont

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $41.00
Overall Rating:      

The sites are crowded, not level, and laid out haphazardly. We expected a nice city facility; instead, this place feels like an "RV slum." The smoke from the campfires was so thick you couldn't stand to be outside or have the door/windows open. People walking through campsites day and night. It seems to be cared for and run by young people who have no idea how to take care of a campground. We paid $82 for two nights in a site that has water and electric - overpriced, even if it had been half that price. We absolutely would not stay here again. That said, there is a lovely beach park that is connected with this campground. A nice bike path that runs to downtown. If someone is looking for a "rustic camping experience," this isn't it. We camped at North Beach Campground in a Motorhome.

Burlington is an interesting town - plenty to do here, right along the east shore of Lake Champlain. It is a bit of a drive to restaurants or shopping from this campground, though. If you are a fan, Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream is down the road in Waterbury. The area around Burlington is wooded and scenic. Our first time in Burlington, and we definitely like the area, just not this campground.

Swan Bay Resort, Alexandria Bay, New York

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $64.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed here 5 nights, to be able to do day trips in the area. The park is definitely upscale, with concrete pads, and well-laid-out utilities. Nice pool area with tiki bar - they had live entertainment there a couple times during our stay. We appreciate RV resorts over "campgrounds" when available - some may find this a plus, but big smokey fires are not appealing to us, and it seemed that most people had smokey fires going all the time. We had to keep our doors and windows closed most of the time because of the smell. Also, the neighbors on both sides of us were noisy well into the night. I'm all for people having fun, but this went on beyond normal quiet hours. Both of those neighbors had multiple vehicles (besides their RV) parked on the gravel and the grass. I did not rate the park lower because of the neighbors, although some security keeping things more peaceful would have been nice. The park is very nicely landscaped, a co-located marina, and conveniently located for Alexandria Bay, Clayton, and day tripping in Canada. Someone commented about the extra charge for electricity - unusual for an RV park, but very typical for a marina. We camped at Swan Bay Resort in a Motorhome.

An international bridge to Canada is within two miles of the RV park, for day trips into Canada (we had a great time at the Busker Rendezous in Kingston, ON. A beautiful area. Water levels were unusually high while we were there, due to excessive rain and runoff (not the norm).

Please note: this review is for the Yellow Smoke Park, part of the county park system - I did not see anything specific f0r that park for Denison. The park is very scenic, with a small pond. Quite wooded, so we couldn't get satellite TV, but there were a couple stations we could pull in via the powered antenna. The Verizon signal was weak, but made adequate with a booster. The sites have water and electric (not all), and the water was not close to the site. There is a sewer dump on the way out of the park. Self-register after selecting a site.

Denison is nearby (a couple miles) - we were visiting family there, so this county park was convenient. The park is used by local folks for recreation, so sites can be hard to come by on weekends and holidays. (no reservations) We are not fans of smokey campfires... and seemed to be the only ones who felt that way. Quiet mid-week, much more activity on the weekends.
