We liked this campground and found it an excellent way to visit Mystic and New London. The sites are quite large in our section, and have easy hook-ups. Each electric pole serves for two RV's. There is no sewer but the camp will give you one free dump per 3 days of visit. However, the showers and bathrooms are quite clean and look fairly new. (I liked the fact that their honey-wagon is 'discrete' meaning that you can't see it - it is inside a white trailer.) The sites are level and come with a fire ring and a table. We found their wi-fi and cable to be quite good both in the evening and during the day. The pool is new and someone told me it is heated to 85 degrees.

We were here for 17 days both visiting New York and Hyde Park and West Point. This is a marvelous center for traveling to all three of these. The level, treed sites are rock, have a picnic table, spaced out, have good hook-ups with 30 A and are just delightful. There is no wi-fi and no cable but we had some over the air stations. Getting to New York took about 45 minutes by train and costs $5.00 on weekends and $9.00 on weekdays and between $30 and $40 depending upon your age. The station is about 1 1/2 miles from the park and there is ample parking (you might have to use the north side of the street.) There are nice trail through the park.

We are TT members so this campground was part of our membership package. You have two choices of sites: in the crowded back there is 30A, water & sewer. In the spacious grassy front there is 50A & water - no sewer. However, the honey wagon will come around if requested and, at this time, is free. They are working on the park at this time. The pool area is very nice, ready for summer, and they have updated the clubhouse and bathroom area. It is a work in progress. You can buy WiFi for a daily or weekly price. Cable is included with your fee. There is shuffleboard, kayaking, a beach on the lake, volleyball, a nice playground, and a miniature golf course that needs a bit of cleaning. Nice family campground. We would definitely stay here again.

Closest campground to Philly - that is why we chose it. Level rock sites, mostly grassy, table, fire pit, decent WiFi and cable were provided. We had a lake view site which was nice. Not much for walking but there is a town home development about 1/4 mile away that you can walk in. This campground was expensive and you'll also pay for your electricity if you have a weekly spot as we did. But it has location, location, location. We would stay again.

Before I talk about the campground, I want to say a word about the ice cream in the store: GREAT. What a deal - $2.70 will buy you what they call 1 scoop but which I would call 2 1/2 scoops and - you can get two flavors in this '1' scoop. Now, about the campground, the sites are large, level (where are were) and grassy with a picnic table and a fire pit. We backed into the woods so it was fairly private. The sites are gravel. There are actually some nice trails around the park that I'm sure not many take. We prefer the campground atmosphere of TT to a manicured resort and this fit the bill. It is about 45 minutes to Yorktown, Jamestown, and Williamsburg. It is also about 55 minutes from Richmond. We enjoyed breakfast at Olivia's in the Village in Gloucester. l would most definitely camp here again.

This is a basic campground with full hook-ups, large sunny, grassy sites with a picnic table and a fire-pit at each site. There is a fishing pier also. We checked out other campgrounds in the area and this is the best by far. It is close to walking trails, the Wright Memorial, restaurants and shoppes. It is also close to Roanoke for the Memorial there. It is a beautiful drive down Cape Hatteras to the light house and the Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum. We would stay her again.

This campground is small and close to the highway - which makes it easy on and easy off but there is a bit of highway noise that filters into the campground. It is tight and, while most of the roads are asphalt, one of them is actually still dirt. The bathrooms are clean and so is the laundry room. It is an older park but under new management. The front row faces a nice lake. Older and rustic but we would camp here again.

We liked this state park campground. It is woodsy, the sites are huge and wonder of wonders - we have 50 amp service and would you believe we have cable? We also have water but there is no sewer (there are some sites with sewer, which you can reserve). We actually used the camp showers and found them very clean. The bathrooms in our area need some work and I hear that they are being replaced in the near future. The sites are level and large and have a substantial raised platform for a picnic table, which is provided at each site. It is tree-covered and shady but some sun filters through. There are some nice trails throughout the park. Our neighbors left at 9:00 and at 9:30 there was someone over there checking the site. We would definitely return. Reserve in advance since the park is popular.

We enjoyed this park but you have to account for the airport noise. This is right under the flight path, both landing and taking off. On Monday morning 5 planes took off between 6:20 and 6:25. That said, we would return to this park. The sites had a cement pad although it was a bit rounded in the middle, there was a cement picnic table and benches at each site, there was a nice grass area between each site, the hook-ups were good. The Wi-Fi was fine during the day but overloaded in the evening. We did not use the pool nor the bathrooms since they were quite a ways away from our site. We heard no noise from the flea market but we were in the back row. Except for the airplane noise, this is a nice park and we would return - and put up with the noise. The pluses more than outweigh this minus.

This was a fine campground. The sites were level but could get muddy after a rain. There was a picnic table at each site, the hook-ups were good, and the Wi-Fi was spotty, as was the TV reception (NBC and PBS were hard to get). The campgrounds older and could use some work but the bathrooms were clean. The sites were ample with space between them. The best thing about this park is that it is close to everything in St Augustine, the sights and the shopping. We would return.

The site we had was level but we could see that some others might have problems. There was a picnic table with each site and the hook-ups were easy. There is cable at each site. It was close to everything we wanted to see in Vicksburg and we stayed a week. There is a shuttle to the casino. Be sure to stop at the Rte 20 Visitor Center to see the great view of the river and the bridges across the Mississippi.

This was a pretty basic campground with no amenities. The sites are terraced up the hill and concrete but there is a slight rise to get to each of them. Not only that, but you need to swing wide left and turn sharply right to get into the sites at the bottom of the hill. The water hook-up is in a collar and when it rains, this collar fills up and covers where your hose connects. There is a picnic shelter with tables at the bottom of the hill. The park is for sale at this time. We would return since it is convenient for visiting Shiloh, Corinth and Brices Cross Roads, all important Civil War Sites. Don't forget to try the slug burger while you're in Corinth.

Since we were not on the river this was a pretty basic campground with gravel pull-throughs. Our site was level and the hook-ups worked fine. We had a picnic table at our site. The roads are gravel and stone which kick up dust when ever anyone drives by. They pick up the garbage at your site daily. There is a walking trail in the woods behind the park which is a nice distance and trail. Sometimes the barges could be loud but they did not bother us.

This is a small but nice well-maintained park and the owners show their care. the bathrooms are clean as is the laundry though the washers and dryers are showing their age. The sites were level, and big enough for our 34' motorhome. A 45' mh pulling a large dolly pulled in without a reservation and had to go on down the road to another park that was big enough for the mh and large dolly and had an opening. The gazebo and hot tub are nice and well-lit. The owner is a font of knowledge about NO and can even tell you where to park in the French Quarter. The hook-ups are good. The park is gated since it is not the best part of town, though we walked through it several times. We stayed 2 weeks and had the weekly discount.

A basic park. We were in the second row which is a gravel pull-through. The sites are level and the hook-ups are fine. This park is within walking distance of the Clinton Library and the downtown waterfront shops. It is right on the trail and biking and walking are convenient. It is secure with a locked gate for which campers are given the code. We had a few ants by our 7th day but they were extremely tiny and, as soon as we moved on, they disappeared. We would definitely stay here again but might buy some ant deterrent.
