Shenandoah Valley Campground, Mount Jackson, Virginia

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $46.00
Overall Rating:

We just needed an overnight stopover, and this was the perfect place! It's less than a mile from the interstate and very easy to get in and out of. We called in the afternoon for a late arrival and she left the receipt and instructions on the door. Very nice and efficient. We had a level pull-through with full hookups. Lots of nice grass for the dogs. The bathrooms were spotless and the wifi worked well. They have cable, but we didn't use it. We didn't look in the laundry, but the information sheet said the washers are $1.50 and the dryers are $1.00. There are a number of things to do in the area, but we were on the move so didn't try anything. There is some highway noise, but after you realize what the "hummm" is, it's no problem......and as I said it's good that it's near the highway! We camped at Shenandoah Valley Campground in a Motorhome.

Chewonki Campground, Wiscasset, Maine

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $65.00
Overall Rating:

This is a peasant campground with nice grounds, but I can see no reason for it to cost so much! We chose it for the location and decided to just pay up, but were hit with even more charges. When I called they said it would be $60 plus tax and I didn't notice when I registered that my base charge was $65. We arrived at 11:00am and had to pay another $25 for early arrival, which no one had mentioned when I made the reservation. The site looks level, but we still had to work a bit. The bathrooms are clean but rustic and dated, and the showers cost 25 cents for 8 minutes. That's kind of a slap in the face after the huge cost to stay here! The power is just 30amp and a little weak. They have WiFi, but it only works at the office. For this price, they could install another router! They have things for recreation and the sites are nice, but I would certainly not stay here again!! It would be nice at $35-40! We camped at Chewonki Campground in a Motorhome.

The traffic in Wiscasset is horrible! On Friday afternoon it was backed up for miles in either direction, and there's no other way to get through it. We wanted to eat at Red's since we had heard so much about it, but the lines were terrible!

Manistique Lakeshore Campground, Manistique, Michigan

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $50.00
Overall Rating:

This is a wonderful campground and I agree with all the other reviewers. Their online reservation system is outstanding and you can easily see what sites are open with a picture for each one. Their wifi is excellent. The bathrooms are great. Each shower is a separate room with a bench, several places to hang things and a shelf in the shower....well thought out! We had a beautiful site that backed up to the lake with a view of the lighthouse. We even had wild blueberries beside us. We camped at Manistique Lakeshore Campground in a Motorhome.

Compass RV Park (formerly Indian Forest Campground), St Augustine, Florida

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $60.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed here with friends, and had two great "buddy sites", 85b and 85c, which had a nice, large, shared concrete patio with two tables. It was a little more private than most sites. We were met at the gate and escorted to our site. These folks have the check-in process perfected! I think the site prices vary according to size, location, how long you're staying, and whether there's a concrete patio. We paid $60/night for our 5-night stay. It was a little pricey, but this is a tourist area. They have a few "doggie doo drop-off cans" scattered around, which I think more campgrounds should do! My only complaint was that the showers had almost no place to hang or put your "stuff". I wish campground owners would take a shower in their own bathrooms to see what is needed! They were working on the bathrooms, so maybe they are better now. We camped at Compass RV Park (formerly Indian Forest Campground) in a Motorhome.

The campground has a free shuttle into St Augustine. We used it the first day since you have to pay for most of the parking in town. After we bought our trolley tickets, we found that we could park in their lot for free! We don't recommend the Ghosts and Gravestones tour. It was way over-acted. It was so bad, I sent in my request for a refund, which came after about 6 weeks. So, if you are disappointed, save your ticket and receipt! The Pirate and Treasure Museum was great!

Fort Mountain State Park, Chatsworth, Georgia

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

We made our reservations online. You cannot reserve a specific site...only one that's appropriate for the length of your rig. You have to pay a $5 fee for your toad....but only once for your camping stay. When you get there, check in at the gift shop and then go pick your site. We rode through in the car first before taking the motorhome in. There are two parts of the campground. The lower portion is closer to the lake, but the road on that side is very hilly and has lot of deep potholes. It's one-way through the campground so you have to go all the way through. The upper portion has better roads. We had no trouble getting level but some sites looked like it could be difficult. There is almost no AT&T or Verizon service. We were able to get service as we left the park and on some of the overlooks on the hikes. Beware of the poison ivy that's everywhere! Restrooms and showers were nice. Laundry is still 75 cents for washer & dryer. We camped at Fort Mountain State Park in a Motorhome.

Down By The River Campground, Pineola, North Carolina

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $34.00
Overall Rating:

This is beautiful park! The majority of the sites are occupied by seasonal residents, but they are beautifully kept. There are flowers and lush grass everywhere. The sites are all concrete pads and I think they all have full hookups. They have a large laundry with washers and dryers both at $1.50. The cost of the site varies with the length of your rig. At 33' we got the lower rate. I'm not sure why that matters! The sites alternate on the roads, so you are not right next to your neighbor. They have lots of great space for walking dogs with lots of doggie dump receptacles. You do have to drive 5 or 10 miles to most stores, but there are a few restaurants not far away. It's the closest campground to the Grandfather Mountain entrance. The Verizon signal is fairly weak and doesn't support data, but the campground wifi is pretty good most of the time, which is unusual. They do not accept credit cards, so bring your checkbook. We camped at Down By The River Campground in a Motorhome.

Beckley Exhibition Coal Mine Campground, Beckley, West Virginia

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

This is the kind of campground we love! It's small, wooded, quiet, and picturesque. If you need things for the kids, there's a small playground in the campground. A city park with a large pool and big playground are next door to the mine exhibit. There are only 17 sites here and they are all back-ins. They are pretty narrow, but we have a 33' motorhome and had no trouble. There are several rigs larger than ours here. The showers are dated, but are clean and have lots of hot water. They give you a code for the bathrooms. Be careful on the city road into the mine exhibit, since it is narrow and there are power poles right on the edge! You should check in at the Mine Museum office and unhook your toad there. The road up to the campground has one sharp, steep curve but it's manageable. Good Verizon signal. We enjoyed our stay!

We enjoyed the tour of the mine. The mine town buildings are beautifully restored, and the docents are well-informed. You get $1 off for being in the campground. Drive north to the New River Bridge and also to Thurmond, an abandoned railroad town. The road to Thurmond is winding and narrow, so be careful!

Rei Lakes, Springfield, Ohio

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $42.00
Overall Rating:

This campground is way overpriced for what you get, but there are hardly any other choices if you want to tour the Air Force Museum. (It's about 30 minutes away.) We called ahead and asked for two sites. Our friends needed a pull-through since they are having car trouble and couldn't unhook. The campground is located down some long country roads, but they are OK. The main entrance has a narrow gate that's kind of scary for a big coach, but if you go past that entrance, there's another one without a gate. You have to go to the 5th-wheel where the owner lives, and she was pretty disorganized. She had let someone else park on the pull-through site she had planned on letting our friends use, so they had to roam around the grassy area looking for a level place. She had given us a site with a nice concrete pad, but there was no way to get level on it, so we also had to try several grassy sites before we could find a level spot. Fortunately, there were no other campers in this area, so we just kept trying different ones. The large grassy area LOOKS level, but it's not! (My husband was just about to drive away!) And, none of those sites have sewer. We asked if the price was the same without sewer and she said we still had access to it by pulling up to a site with sewer, so the price is the same! (Of course, those are all taken, so there's no place to dump!) There is NO bathroom and no WiFi. I had a good enough Verizon signal to use data. It is a pretty campground with some small lakes surrounded by grass, and the other campers (mostly permanent) were friendly. Then there was the guy who came home from work and let his two big dogs poop in the grass near us without picking it up. I guess if he lives here, he thinks he doesn't have to! We camped at Rei Lakes in a Motorhome.

Lake Shelby Campground, Shelbyville, Kentucky

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $15.00
Overall Rating:

What a gem! $15 for a campsite! Wow! The only way we found this campground was with RVParkReviews, and we're glad we did! It's very small, only 10 sites, but we called ahead and he said he'd save a site for us. We had to ask for the address (1433 Burks Branch Road), and Google Maps found it.

The park is lovely with a small fishing lake, lots of grass, a nice playground, and pedal boats for rent. The sites have concrete pads which are very short, but we managed to get all the wheels on it. We just parked our tow vehicle on the asphalt in front. As someone else mentioned, the manager's house is the office and it reeks of cigarette smoke, but he was helpful. The bathrooms are pretty rustic, but they are clean and there's plenty of hot water. There's no wifi, but I had a good enough Verizon signal, and I can buy a lot of data with the money we saved here! We camped at Lake Shelby Campground in a Motorhome.

Driving through Louisville was a nightmare! There is construction everywhere, and the signs just pop up saying that a ramp is closed, but don't tell you how to get to the next interstate highway! Thank goodness for Google Maps! I doubt a GPS would have current data on their construction.

Lakehead Boat Basin, Duluth, Minnesota

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

This is definitely "black top" camping, but the views and location are great! The drive to it is pretty scary with a rig towing a car, but trust Google Maps to get you through the turns in town. You drive through the Canal Park district and over the Aerial Lift Bridge to get there, and turn onto a tiny road. Stop at the marina office and they will show you where to go. A very nice young woman checked us in. All sites are back-in, and you have to back out from the water/electric sites when you leave. We enjoyed the view of the city and the bridge, and it's definitely a different kind of camping. Wifi worked pretty well. The bathroom/showers are in a small trailer, but work OK. There's lots of clanging of the masts and chains and some boat and train horns, but we slept through most of it. There are a couple of patches of grass to walk dogs. We camped at Lakehead Boat Basin in a Motorhome.

Creekview Campground, Edgerton, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

This is a very small campground, which I only located through this website! It's a huge grassy area with some trees and a nice creek. There are some low branches on the drive that need to be trimmed, and some of the turf is soft after a rain, so I don't think I'd stay here when it might be wet. I didn't use their bathroom, but my husband did, and he said his was pretty dirty. There's a small, old building with one small room each for men and women. The owners were friendly. Easy off and on the highway. No wifi, but OK Verizon signal for data. Good place for overnight. We camped at Creekview Campground in a Motorhome.

Memorial Park Campground, Washburn, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $26.00
Overall Rating:

This is a nice, small campground right in the small town of Washburn and on Lake Superior. Some of the sites overlook the lake. We made reservations online, and there is one campground section for those who made online reservations. When you make your reservation, you have to pick a site, but it tells you nothing about that site...just if it's available for your date. Some of the sites are pretty small and some are not very level. These have electric, but no water or sewer. The sites that can be reserved are the ones in the woods. The wifi is fantastic...the fastest we've ever had in a campground! The bathrooms are typical campground and adequate. The showers are 25 cents for 3 minutes. My water took almost a minute to get hot. But since the camping rate is low, I didn't consider that a problem! They had some sort of festival the weekend before we got here and we were told that the place was packed, so if you want to come in late July, check for whatever event is going on here. We camped at Memorial Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Arbor Vitae Campground, Arbor Vitae, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $31.00
Overall Rating:

The last reviews on this campground are from two years ago, so I thought I'd give a refresher. The comments of the reviewers from July of 2014 are still accurate. The manager was very friendly and helpful. You definitely need a map to get around this campground with all its sections. There are lots of seasonals, but we were assigned one of the LONG (at least 100') pull-throughs in the upper section. It has gorgeous grass, but no bathrooms or wifi in this section. The landscaping company still cranks up at dawn and is dumping gravel or something into trucks. Definitely use the back entrance off highway 70 beside the landscaping business, but it doesn't take you by the office to register. The bathrooms are dated, but very functional. The showers have great shower heads with good hot water and there are several hooks for hanging. We camped at Arbor Vitae Campground in a Motorhome.

Overall Rating:

This our go-to overnight campground as we head west. We have not used it to do the tourist stuff in Pigeon Forge. It is nicely laid out with concrete pads. We use a pull-through, although there are lots of lovely river-front back-in sites. The staff is friendly and efficient. The bathrooms look new and are spotless. We were in the section with trees and good shade, which was nice since it was hot. Fortunately there is a stoplight at the intersection of the main highway into town...otherwise it would be hard to make a left turn to head back to the interstate.
