Bonanza Campground & RV Park, Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin

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

When you make your reservations online, you pick your site. They all look the same on the little map so we just randomly chose something that was available. When we got here, we couldn't fit our camper on the site. Our slide hit the awning of the RV behind us and our awning hit the slide of the RV in front of us. Fortunately there was a site available infront of a 5th wheel that wasn't using their awning. All of the full hook up sites are SO close together though. The fire ring for the campsite behind us was under our slide and the hook ups end up under the awning of the person behind you on every site. Even though we had a pull through, we could not pull out because the camper in front of us was so close we had to swing way out and pull into the campsite across from us. However, they parked their truck nearly in the street (because there is nowhere else to park it) and we couldn't use that room. We had to back out of the site and down the street to get out at the end of our stay.

That being said, if you don't need full hook up, the water and electric sites are very spacious. We would definitely stay here again and get a water and electric only site and dump our sewer later. I have no idea why the sites for the bigger rigs would be the smallest sites. Their pool is nice and tickets for Noah's Ark Water Park (which was just amazing) are included in the rate. The campground is clean and the staff is nice. The campground is easy to find and navigate through (with the exception of the full hook up sites).

You can go to the waterpark as many times as you want for as long as you are staying in the campground and you leave the wristband on. We camped at Bonanza Campground & RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Noah's Ark Water Park was the best. We saw Mt Olympus & it was over crowded and dirty. We ate at Moose Jaw Pizza & Mr Pancake; both were very good. Get there early.

Canyon River trail ride was fun. We went early, our guide was knowledgeable & friendly. The animated characters along the way were pretty hokey but our guide pointed out several deer, a wild turkey and birds nests along the way.

Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park, Caledonia, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $78.00

First: when you are looking at their rates, scroll all the way through the page. There is a fee for camping and a fee for each person listed separately.

The campground was very nice. Easy to find, check in, navigate through and set up. The sites are on the small side, close together and not at all private, but enough room to set up on and put out your slides and awning. The dog park was cute and stocked with baggies. The pool was amazing. My kids had SO much fun with the water balloons and slides. If you don't like kids, this is not the place for you. There were kids everywhere and no one to enforce rules.

The staff members were super nice and helpful to the kids but did not direct them to follow any rules, wait for their turn in line, etc. (I followed my kids everywhere to keep kids from jumping in front of them in line, pushing them or jumping on top of them in the pool.) Of course, It's parents jobs to teach their kids the rules, not the staff, but it would have been nice if they made an attempt.

Putt putt was nice too and the last 9 holes are accessible to wheelchairs. The playground and jumping pillow are great, but again, the unsupervised kids issues apply here too. There were lots of planned activities but we only stayed overnight and did not participate in these.

The only issues I had was with the pricing, and the misunderstanding was my fault. I had been looking at so many campgrounds I just skimmed the rates chart and was pleased by the $45 rate. You cannot make a reservation for just one night so we called the morning we were set to arrive to ensure that there was a site available (it was on a Thursday, so no problem here). When we got here, we were charged $78 because the rate does not include the $7 per person charge. We would have found another campground if I had realized this is what we would be charged. I don't think this campground is worth that price. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park in a Travel Trailer.

Lake Haven Retreat, Indianapolis, Indiana

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

We chose this campground as a base for activities in indianapolis and it was the perfect choice. It was easy to get into, check in and get into our site. Other reviews complained of rocks being in the way making it difficult to pull a rig through but we had no issues in our f350 extended cab pulling a 35 ft travel trailer. The campground was immaculate, lawns cut, landscaped, a pretty little lake, grass between campers and a few small trees on each site for a little shade. The sites are pretty close together but it seemed that no one was ever "home" so it really didn't matter. It was very quiet, and our kids may have been the only ones there. If you have kids and are looking for entertainment for them in the campground, there is nothing. However, after going to the amazing children's museum and zoo (each takes a full day to see) they were exhausted and we're happy to sit and watch the campground cable (which worked perfectly). We had site number 76, which was excellent. The sun was behind us. It would have been pretty miserable if we had been on site 75 or another site facing the sun as it was hot when we were there. I would recommend a site with the back of your camper to the lake if you go during the summer. There was a picnic table but no fire ring on our site. There are central fire rings around the lake with split wood provided but not on the sites. We ordered pizza from Greeks. They delivered it to the campground 15 min after ordering and it was delicious. We will stay here the next time we come visit indy. We camped at Lake Haven Retreat in a Travel Trailer.

Huntington / Fox Fire KOA, Milton, West Virginia

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

This was a great choice for our overnight stay but the site was SO small I would not want to stay for longer. We were in site no 24, a pull through which was easy to get in and out of. It was long enough for us to remain hooked up to the truck. When we put our slides out there was 1 inch between ours and our neighbors (we have 2 super slides on the back side). There was no one in front of us and that was nice. There was a picnic table but no fire ring. There were bigger sites, the ones on the front row seemed bigger. The check in was simple, the customer service was good, friendly. Restrooms and showers clean and very pretty. The kids had fun in the little lake with inflatables and the playground was nice too. Everyone, even adults are required to wear life jackets in the lake, which is fine, but the ones supplied need to be replaced. Most are waterlogged and the foam inside was broken down. I would recommend bringing your own. We used the dogpark, which was like most koa dog parks. It's nice to have an off leash area for our dog to run after a long trip. Everything was well maintained from landscaping to doggie poop bag dispensers. Overall a good campground. We camped at Huntington / Fox Fire KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Chippokes Plantation State Park, Surry, Virginia

Date of Stay: May, 2016 - $27.00
Overall Rating:

We enjoy camping here each year. We stay in the newer loop (B). The campsites are well maintained with picnic table and fire ring, and the roads are wide and clear for navigating a large rig. The driveway is paved with a pebble rock area for the fire, and picnic table. Super easy to back in (or pull through) and level. Most sites have shade during most of the day. In the other loop (A), the sites are smaller, not paved, have picnic table and fire ring but more shade. Bath houses are a short walk away and clean. It's WAY off the main road so very dark and quiet. There is a nice walking/ biking path, playgrounds, and beach (though not for swimming). We do like to walk to the beach and walk along the water: it's just beautiful. It is not within site of the camping area, but the walk is not too far. (Unless you have little kids but there is parking near the start of the trail.) The pool is nice and well maintained, with a diving board, life guards and snack bar. The only thing I would change about this campground is the location of the playground. It is outside of the campground. It's within bike riding distance but really too far to walk to with little ones. The same for the pool really. It's a little closer, but too far to walk with heavy pool bags or little kids. However, there is plenty of parking near both. The reservations used to be first come, first served. They are changing to site specific reservations, but there really isn't a bad site at this campground. They have buddy sites so 2 campers can be near each other and these might not be pleasant if you didn't know the other person, but the other sites are pretty private. We camped at Chippokes Plantation State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Sometimes we drive over to the Surry ferry and take it over to Williamsburg to eat out, go to Busch Gardens, shop, etc. The kids think its AWESOME to drive our big truck on the ferry and ride over, even if we didn't do anything there. But if it's a rainy camping trip, there is nothing to do near the campground, and there is lots to do on the Williamsburg side. This campground is so much cheaper than the Williamsburg campgrounds, and nicer!

Williamsburg / Busch Gardens Area KOA, Williamsburg, Virginia

Date of Stay: July, 2011 - $50.00
Overall Rating:

We like this campground. It's about an hour from our home and is our go to when we need a quick getaway. The staff is VERY friendly & helpful, the facilities are nice & they have great activities for the kids. The pool is beautiful! It's near Busch Gardens, we come back to the campground for naps & lunch and go back for the rest of the day. We have camped here in several different sites, one time we had a staff person tell us that because we had German Shepherds we were not allowed to stay in our favorite site (which we had stayed in several times with the dogs before), but they let us have it and most of the staff comes into our site to love our big furry family members anyway. Highly recommend - the kids love the pool and jumping pillow. Gave only 8 stars because the playground needs up dating - but really, with everything else, they don't miss it much. We camped at Williamsburg / Busch Gardens Area KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Montebello Camping & Fishing Resort, Montebello, Virginia

Date of Stay: March, 2009 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

The first year we camped here (2007) we had one of the tiny pull through sites. Since the sites are so close together it feels like everyone in the campground is family because there is no separation. The next year we got the large site on the "Lake" which is more like a pond or borrow pit - very pretty. This trip would have been fine, but the owners let some tent campers have the back half of our campsite without consulting us. We went to hike Crabtree falls and came back to people pitching a tent on our site. We politely let them know that that was not a separate campsite but they insisted that the owners assigned this site to them. They paid for it. and the site number was 19 and a half (seriously). We went up to the store to find out what was going on and the employees were very rude (as they were each time we went to the store). We spoke with the owner who was even more rude, getting in my husband's face and insisting that that was a site; it was on their map and the people were staying. We went back to our site and endured extreme harassment for the rest of the weekend. The owner told the family that we "tried to have them thrown out" (very unprofessional). The husband threatened us with a knife, the wife screamed profanity at us several times (it was the campground joke - all of the other campers heard and kept asking us what was up with the crazy family on our site). The mountains are beautiful, the campground is fair, but definitely not safe!! We will NEVER camp there again. We camped at Montebello Camping & Fishing Resort in a Travel Trailer.
