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 camped at Beckley Exhibition Coal Mine Campground in a Motorhome.

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.

Tips for other Campers:

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.

Be sure and drive out to the end of Minnesota Point (the road that goes on past the turnoff to the campground). It's a long spit of land that stops at an airport, and there are beaches at the end.

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.

Extremely friendly owner. This is nothing fancy, and most of the people here have boats and are here for the fishing...lots of seasonals. We had a shady back-in with W&E. The Wifi was excellent. The campground is really close to the lovely town of Algoma. There's lots of grass and I got permission to let my dog play frisbee in the field. We camped at Big Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

Riverside Campground & Resort, Sevierville, Tennessee

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $36.00
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. We camped at Riverside Campground & Resort in a Motorhome.

Arrowhead Resort Camping Resort, Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

This is another campground that stretches the term "resort".....and they even charge a "resort fee" of $4 for every night's stay! On top of that, showers cost 25 cents for 5 minutes! The majority of the many sites are seasonals, but most of them are nicely kept. We knew our site would only have electricity and water for the PA rate, but when we got to our assigned site, the power box was at least 50 feet away! When we looked around, we noticed that all of the utilities were randomly placed, and most were not at all convenient. There were only a few sites that could accommodate us, and our unit is only 33 feet. Many are not level. All of the power boxes are shared. They let us move, but I would hate to be there on a weekend when there were no other choices of sites. If you reserve a site here, be prepared to use extension cords and/or multiple hoses. The wooded area is attractive, and the pools look nice. The people across from us had booked through Thousand Trails, and supposedly had a sewer site, but theirs did not. There were no other sites with sewer, so they left. I saw another reviewer on TripAdvisor tell the same story. Almost all the sewer sites are for permanents. We camped at Arrowhead Resort Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

Pettibone Resort, La Crosse, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $37.00
Overall Rating:      

I have mixed feelings about this campground. I don't consider it a "resort" by any means, but they have a door marked "banquet hall" and apparently have events there. There are branches of the Mississippi all around the campground, so many people have boats moored near the campsites, and many sites are seasonal. There are no sewer connections at all, probably because of potential floods, and there's a honey wagon for long-term folks. Since there are over 600 sites, I was amazed that there is only one bathroom with only 4 showers! They weren't really dirty, but they are very dated and there was water everywhere from so much use. They had put a bucket of sand for cigarettes INSIDE the bathroom and it smelled like smoke! (I moved it outside!) We saw two port-a-potties in a second section of the campground. They advertise cable, but the sign said it's not working, which seems to be routine, since another reviewer said the same thing 2 years ago! And, the only Wi-Fi was at the office. My phone just barely had enough signal for data. That said, it's an attractive campground with lots of trees...just really crowded in the summer. And, it's close to the city. We camped at Pettibone Resort in a Motorhome.

The Roost Resort, Custer, South Dakota

This campground is a hidden gem! We moved to this one, since our first one is Custer could only give us 3 nights over the July 4 holiday, and we were so glad we moved! It is small and secluded and is run by a lovely, friendly couple. The campsites are gravel with lush grass all around. We could watch the deer gather in the field below every evening, and some of them wandered through the campground. The bathhouses are immaculate. The Wi-Fi is typical "campground speed", but I had a great Verizon signal for data. There are several nice cabins for rent here, too. We camped at The Roost Resort in a Motorhome.

We enjoyed our stay here with one exception. Their Wi-Fi was barely usable, even when I sat beside the office, and I could not get a Verizon cell signal that would support data, so I felt very disconnected, since I use my computer for all my trip planning. I even had to ride down the road toward town to have a good phone conversation! Other than that, this is a nice park. It is on a pretty steep hill and the sites are terraced. They have nice grass, and the bathrooms are good. Owners are friendly and work hard to keep the place looking nice. We camped at Beaver Lake Campground in a Motorhome.
