Assateague State Park, Berlin, Maryland

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $23.00
Overall Rating:      

Let me start by saying that I will not hold the park responsible for bad weather (seriously, who would?). That said, loved it. Great bath houses (try an outdoor shower on the back side of the bath house). Nice camp store and concession stand. Good camp hosts, very helpful, stopped by and checked in. Nice touch, movie night for the kids. Would love an electric site next time, but they go fast. Horses stop through the park, prepare for bugs. Never leave without taking in your awning. Dump station, drinking water easily accessible. We camped at Assateague State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Visit the town of Berlin. Nice restaurants. Good walking. Like I said, when you use their shower, try the two enclosed outdoor showers on the back side of the bath house. It's not as glam as those outdoor showers in Hawaii, but pretty nice for a campground. For camping supplies, try Buck's on the way in.

Delaware Seashore State Park, Rehoboth Beach, Delaware

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

We live in South Jersey, so it was an easy ride down the parkway to the ferry to this State Park. I recommend the north side, as I feel they are a little roomier. The trade off is no camp stores and a little more effort to get to the restaurant and lifeguarded south beach. I would recommend going to Hammerheads at the marina instead of the newer, more popular Chill Grill anyhow. Park staff very helpful, friendly. Nice hosts. This is a good example of what a State Park should be, clean, quiet and well run. We camped at Delaware Seashore State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Stonewall Resort, Briar Point Campground , Roanoke, West Virginia

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $36.00
Overall Rating:      

Very difficult to judge. On one hand, the property is very well run by very friendly, accommodating staff. But the devil is in the details. Every morning the guy who empties your individual trash can (nice), ran out of newspapers before he got to my site (not nice). The resort boasts a wonderful restaurant (nice), that was closed the night we wanted to go "because we forgot that we had already booked a private party" (not nice). The resort has a nice little boat that takes guests around the lake (nice), that was out of service when we were there (not nice). The resort fee of $15 per day per site will allow you to use the pool (nice), but it cannot guarantee that maintenance will not be power washing the apron of the pool area, all day, for two days straight in anticipation of the holiday weekend (not nice). That being said, nice resort, nice location, nice staff, nice, nice, nice. Just bad timing I guess. We camped at Stonewall Resort, Briar Point Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Elk Neck State Park, North East, Maryland

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $15.00
Overall Rating:      

Our third time to Elk Neck, first time in the new fiver. We wanted to keep close to home (less than 100 miles), but can't stomach Jersey state parks. Very quiet this time of the year, just us and the campground host. Periodic patrols of Maryland Park Police and park service employees add to the sense of security. always a good hike out to the lighthouse, lots of improvements being made all around the park. My wife just turned 62, so we signed up for the Maryland golden Age passport when we checked in, half priced camping. If you like quiet, clean state parks, this is a good choice. We camped at Elk Neck State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The town of North East has some nice restaurants, especially when crabs are in season. Make sure you bring everything, unless you're here when the camp store is open (we rarely are). Hike to the lighthouse.

Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground, Lake Buena Vista, Florida

Date of Stay: April, 2014 - $140.00
Overall Rating:      

Very difficult to rate. The professionalism of the staff and the overall attention to detail rates a 10. However, I was disappointed in the lack of Wi-Fi at the sites and the dodging of golf carts that seem to overrun the place. As a campground, I guess it would rate highly as a commercial campground. As a place to relax, it seems all too prepackaged and busy for my tastes. Restrooms, immaculate. Ease of transportation, efficient. I guess I find it comparable to a great hotel in a busy city. Clean, sterile and efficient. Just not what I look for in a great campground. My apologies to the Disney fanatics. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Bluewater Key RV Resort, Key West, Florida

Date of Stay: September, 2013 - $80.00
Overall Rating:      

Normally I don't write my review until I've left, but I wanted to get word to anyone coming to Bluewater any time soon to call ahead about the pool. It's currently closed for repairs to the apron that were supposed to have been completed by the end of August. They have not been finished and there is rebar everywhere. So if the pool makes a difference, you've been told. We only found out after we already were heading down through an email "reminding" us that the pool may be closed during our stay. That having been said, this place is still one of the best. We scored site 41, which is at the end of the key and is spacious and well laid out. The managers are still the best. There is a remodeled laundry that is great. We camped at Bluewater Key RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

James Island County Park, Charleston, South Carolina

Date of Stay: September, 2013 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a nice county park. Lots of biking trails and a 15 minute ride to both downtown Charleston and the plantation tours. The only reason for an 8 rather than a 10 was that my wife found the shower not as clean as she would have liked. Otherwise, the store was well stocked, the staff friendly and the site was private. We would come back again. We camped at James Island County Park in a Travel Trailer.

The RV Resort at Carolina Crossroads, Roanoke Rapids, North Carolina

Date of Stay: September, 2013 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

For what this campground sells itself as, it is a 10. I would not call it a destination resort. But neither do they. It is a place along 95 to put in relatively early, put on your swim trunks and enjoy the great pool. The showers are new & spotless. The grounds are well maintained. We will use this place again. We camped at The RV Resort at Carolina Crossroads in a Travel Trailer.

Date of Stay: September, 2013 - $25.00

Not much that I can add that hasn't been said before. Well run, friendly rangers, beautiful beach right over the dunes. Liked the visitor center, hated the occasional bug. Like the ponies, annoyed at times by the wind. Great dry camping. We camped at Assateague Island National Seashore Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Wading Pines Camping Resort, Chatsworth, New Jersey

Date of Stay: June, 2013 - $85.00
Overall Rating:      

This was our fourth stay in many years. I've reviewed this campground before. I wanted to review again now that I've had more experiences in other campgrounds. I feel that I can objectively tell you that if you want to get away, midweek, on a wilderness site, this is as good as it gets in South Jersey. It's good for short term. We found the front desk staff, as well as the workers around the campground to be pleasant. The pool was clean. Remember, this is the pines. Nothing fancy. Lots of families, lots of kid activities. Not a destination, but nice to sit by the river with friends. We camped at Wading Pines Camping Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Great campground for families with kids. Lots to do. However, it doesn't appeal to my wife and me, as we normally like quiet. But like I said, if you have kids and want lots of organized activities, this is a well run machine. We camped at Harpers Ferry / Civil War Battlefields KOA in a Motorhome.

Campfire Lodgings, Asheville, North Carolina

Date of Stay: September, 2012 - $60.00
Overall Rating:      

Good base for visiting Biltmore. Friendly and helpful. Earlier postings that mentioned updating the restrooms are correct. Updating would make this a solid 9. Don't drive yourself crazy getting a premium site. There is a public area that you can walk to in the premium site area that has a great view, in my opinion. We camped at Campfire Lodgings in a Travel Trailer.

Good stop along I-81. Friendly staff. Restrooms were clean. Well stocked store. Leveling the camper was challenging, had to change sites. Pool looked good, though we didn't use it. We would stay again for a stopover. We camped at Natural Bridge / Lexington KOA in a Travel Trailer.
