Tobermory Village Campground, Tobermory, Ontario

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $67.00
Overall Rating:

So we have stayed here over 1/2 dozen times in the past 15 years or so. We read a lot of negative stuff about the way the CG was run recently. Honestly, we had none of that negativity. We even had our radio going (very low volume) before 10:30pm with no complaints. Our biggest complaint; their 'attitude' to customers is curt & bordering on rude, we emailed in February to book well ahead for an August trip. Advised them we were camping with friends & wanted a buddy site - or at least close to each other. We were assured their newer section could accommodate both our large rigs & we would be 'just across from each other'. However, it turned out, they put our friends behind us & behind the row of trees on our site (and the site size is deceiving, as it continues another 20 feet or so behind that tree line), rather than "just across". Furthermore the site we had was HUGE (no complaint) but would have been nicer without the trees dividing it in half (perhaps they intended it to be 2 sites). The site was large enough BOTH of our rigs could have parked & they didn't bother to let us know this. The site - as all sites we have found so far there - was very very un-level. So much so we couldn't properly dump our tanks. The dump station is on the way out just before the recreation hall, on the WRONG side of the road (so we would have had to have 40 ft of hose to dump there) & its a 1.5 lane road so we would have been blocking all all traffic. The tree branches on site were so low they knocked off our vent cap and tangled up in the antenna. All in all we would still go back, & I would book that site as its the nicest (imho) in the park. However, I do wish they would be more customer friendly (i.e., they don't answer the phone, they check it every once and a while and then return the messages - so when the bear showed up in the tent area - the campers were panicking trying to figure out who to call), And level their sites. large wood bag & 1 fire starter - $10.00. We camped at Tobermory Village Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Camper's Cove Campground, Wheatley, Ontario

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $69.00
Overall Rating:

This park is 80 % seasonal. there were only 2 sites in the entire park that would accommodate a large 5th wheel and even there the branches of the trees were a bit low. While the park is well kept and very clean - the site are crammed in like sardines and its EXTREMELY busy. the two large sites are on the end of a row, and the crossing road heads to the beach - so its constant foot traffic all day... The 1st few nights we were shocked to see kids whipping around on bikes well after dark (no lights etc) (which is against most parks rules for safety), they had a barn dance and a few other events also which increased the foot traffic. The rates are already high - but then we were also charged an additional 12 a day for having a senior with us. We are a total of 3 adults -- no kids, etc. Yet the site next to us will pay less cause there is no extra charge to have 4 kids with 2 adults. This is unfair - i'm positive that my senior guest uses way less resources than the 4 kids staying free down the way. the gate in and out of the park is 1 lane... so its dicey exiting with an rv... the roads not really wide enough to share. The 'dog' beach was at the bottom of couple long steep sets of stairs, neither i nor my older dog could negotiate them. There were no other areas for dogs. Site 243 was also not level. While, i'm impressed it was a clean park, i was not impressed with the volume of trailers and people in such a small area, therefore i would not return. We camped at Camper's Cove Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Kinzua East KOA, Bradford, Pennsylvania

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

Lovely, Small park. Three gentlemen run it - all related. The older gentlemen can be a bit... grouchy. The younger two are super nice. When we booked we were told (in February), that we could not have a buddy site (where trailers face each other for friends camping together). And again when my friends arrived ahead of us they were again told they could not pull their class A to face ours (they had long enough hoses to accommodate hook ups), however a few minutes later they asked the two younger guys who were very open to the idea. Lots of times we saw the younger too patrolling the park in their tractor. When we arrived, we were given detailed instructions on the best way to get our large 5th wheel in. I would say there are too many low hanging wires. And cable would be nice (since in the forest you cannot get sat signal nor TV signal for those rainy days). Cell signal was one bar inside the CG - a few on the outside edge (for info). Park was overall clean. CG Office has a serious case of mold / mustiness but no one is staying in there. I did find it pricey. However, since it was pristine and such a great location (20 min to warren (and Alleghany hiking trails), 20 to Bradford, and 35 to Kinzua bridge), we will definitely return again. Be advised - this is in bear country and bears are common in this campground (along with the usual raccoons, chipmunks etc). Here you cannot leave any food out etc. We camped at Kinzua East KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Over 600 miles of trails in Alleghany forests alone ranging from super easy to difficult. The Kinzua Bridge State Park is a must see. Shopping in Bradford, PA (basic supplies). Zippo museum, Penn oil museum. Most of these things are free! also Smethport mansion walk and town of Kane. Mt. Jewett Tastee freeze (near the bridge) has amazing homemade burgers and giant ice creams. wells hog BBQ in warren is amazing. Kinzua bridge, Jakes rocks, and bent run falls all beautiful.

Haas Lake Park RV Campground, New Hudson, Michigan

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

we stayed at a pull thru site U18. It was a nice sized site. However, it was on the corner of the entrance to the seasonal area. Basically, so busy it was like camping next to a busy road. the sitting area of the site faced the road also - so you had no escape of the dust or noise, headlights etc as you sat outside on your site. We relayed these concerns and that if they flipped the site so that that the services were by the road - they could be quieter (sitting on the other side of the RV). One night we camped they had some event on the other side of the park and we sat and watched an exodus of some 50 cars / golf carts go past over the course of an hour. They were, however, very receptive to our ideas and said they would absolutely look into rearranging the site. We will return - its still a beautiful park with nice staff. We camped at Haas Lake Park RV Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Sturgeon Woods Campground and Marina, Leamington, Ontario

Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $55.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed for 6 days. Originally they had us by the pool but we explained we wanted a quiet site, & that our dogs would be disturbed by constant traffic walking by to the pool (and may bark). So they switched us to Maple ave. That turned out to be a much better site-much bigger & a view of the bay. Wi-fi only works at the rec center. There is another wi-fi that announces itself but is not free, therefore we never tried the wi-fi. The speed bumps are fairly steep on the 1st road of the park. And the alignment of the gate and 'safety' posts made it a bit tricky to leave with our rig. The rest of the roads are well kept. However, there are several roads that are unmarked dead ends - which can be unnerving when your new. We were given a pass for the mirror so that they would raise the barrier each time we returned from town. However, never did the see the pass, we would have to ring the gatebell & show it out the window every time. They should have a gate card option. Our site was level, & clean - except for the garbage in the firepit left by the previous campers (that was cleaned out by their crew 4 days later on their own (we hadn't use the fire pit). The park is fairly quiet where we were sited. The dog park is quite large & clean, with trees-our dogs loved it. A double gate on the dog park would be a nice addition. The recreation hall is quite impressive. Very few negatives - they need more garbage cans - i didn't find a single one except for 'at' the dog park (so walking your dog you're carrying the 'refuse' all the way back to your site). There was no recycling center to be found. There were mangled tin cans with sharp edges & frequently garbage on the little park by the bay. (I picked up the cans because it could cut little bare feet or dogs feet). There is very little shade in maple cr. All in All we will return - and the area is really nice too :) We camped at Sturgeon Woods Campground and Marina in a Fifth Wheel.

Tobermory Village Campground, Tobermory, Ontario

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $55.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed for about a week. The campground is spotless. The dog kennels could be improved - for example they are no longer on grass as advertised but concrete stones, and there is no cover for rain (our dogs were soaked as we couldn't get back in time to avoid the sudden rain). Dog kenneling prices are good and they will keep them til 8pm which is nice. Our site was ok - treed, but not level. It was easy to pull in -however, very tight exiting (the forward road was quite narrow). The rest of the roads in the park are easily travelled with a big rig. The site we had backed on to one of the parks main thoroughfares, so we were inundated with dust day in and day out - traffic, people, bikes etc constantly walking behind our RV (past our 'living room' window), made it noisy and dusty. Watering the road down would reduce the dust considerably. The exercise area, ponds, roaming ducks, restrooms, and petting zoo are all wonderfully cared for. There wasn't really any hiking or walking trails that we found to walk the dogs etc. For those that use it - the pool area and splash pad is clean and well maintained. There's a giant dumping bucket for the splash pad. There are carts to rent - very popular with the kids, and giant duck and swan paddle boats. There is a strict quiet time after 10pm which really makes it enjoyable in the evenings. They charge a 10.00 reservation fee if you reserve by phone - none by web. We paid 8.00 additional /night for a 3rd adult (no children however). We walked around the CG and simply picked better suited sites for our rig and preferences for next year - as we are definitely coming back. All in All a beautiful campground well run, clean, and lovingly maintained. We will continue returning. We camped at Tobermory Village Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Quinte's Isle Campark, Cherry Valley, Ontario

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $69.00
Overall Rating:

i was surprised that all monies were required up front before arriving. 1st deposit was 1/2, and 2 weeks before arrival they billed another 1/2 (i received the good sam discount when i checked in as a refund), i was charged a 25.00 deposit for the gate key (no choice), and 10.00 - thanks for doing business with us reservation fee (charged no matter how you reserve - online or phone). Personally i find it offensive to be charged a fee to do business with a company - not for any specific item just for being their customer. There is no refund once you are within 2 weeks of the stay - they keep the ENTIRE amount regardless of reason for cancelling. We found the site small but 'ok'. the site was level. They have a 'travel' section in the front building - that consisted of 3 brochures - 2 of which were for selling their seasonal trailer units. The wi-fi we found out after we checked in was quite expensive (we ended up not purchasing). For 70/ night it should be included. We were offered 'beach front' sites at 10 MORE a night - but declined when we found they had zero shade, & only electric. The beach is rock - not sand - it's a pretty view though. There are 'group' camping sites elsewhere in the park (due to noise) but for some reason they allowed 2 or 3 groups of people on the 3 sites all behind us. The entire weekend was noisy and loud. The CG is mostly seasonal now - there's a few acres more of seasonal sites - it seems they are raising the prices of overnight camping to pay for the infrastructure of building new seasonal sites by the acre. Everything extra charge -charge for wi-fi, charge for mini-golf, charge for horseback riding, charge for arcade games, charge charge charge. The 'restaurant' is nothing like the website pictures or description in the least. For the value we won't be returning. It was just too expensive for basic camping. (Keep in mind while the pool area is gorgeous we don't use that area so it doesn't play in the the equation). We camped at Quinte's Isle Campark in a Fifth Wheel.

Klondyke Trailer Park, Grand Bend, Ontario

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $60.00
Overall Rating:

The Park is 90% seasonal. There is a beautiful pool and water play area at front for those that like pools. The roads to overnight spots are thru tight lanes of seasonal site. We had to exit our truck and ask locals to move their golf carts etc to get thru. Seasonal sites are run down and messy. No shade on overnight sites - there are young trees planted - 1 on each site at front but they would take 10-20 years to be shade. There are trees / bushes behind overnight sites that block satellite signal but are too sparse for privacy. Lots of mosquitos in that border. Other side of those bushes is more seasonal sites. Check in is a odd 3 hours window only (1-4 pm at peak season). This is really inconvenient - after hours check in has to be previously arranged and if your racing nearby its next to impossible to know when you can leave to move to this park. Also site was not level as promised. Tap for water (and cable - we didn't try because we didn't have an adaptor - there is a co-ax male end of cable exiting the ground at the tap?) is at very back of site - meaning you need a 40 ft plus hose for water or park at the back section of the site (our rig's rear window was in the bushes). The sewer is also fairly far back so you need a long sewer hose if you want to park at a reasonable distance from the bushes. Sites are wide and deep in this section - there around 6 sites in a row here with an field across. Back in only. Wi-fi internet is a joke - you connect but never get any speed to even google a restaurant. Out of 3 days of trying I managed to get online successfully for 20 min at 6am on Tuesday only. On a small note the gate keypad is so low you have to exit your vehicle if its taller than a mini cooper to enter the code. The Fire ring had garbage in it when we arrived. There is a fry shack near pool. Won't Return. We camped at Klondyke Trailer Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Blue Water Lakes Campground, Elmwood, Ontario

Date of Stay: August, 2014 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

This campground (cg) is old and run down. It's run on a cash only basis - so be prepared to have everything you need in cash up front. The cg is messy, and not well laid out. There are no dead end signs for example - not fun when your rig is 55’ long in total. Their map is hand drawn with markers and then photocopied for the last 20 years it seems - so it’s pretty much illegible and useless. Cell signal (not the cg’s fault) is abysmal and seems to move constantly. We were placed in a ‘previously’ seasonal site. The only way to fit our rig was diagonally. It took us 1 hr of jockeying back and forth for that entire time to fit our rig in - not due to the size - which was generous - but the horrid topography — there was a 8 ft tall rubble hill on onside (seemed to be just rubble and weeds dumped there), trees all placed ‘purposely’ but in such a way as to block any logical way to get into the site, not to mention the garbage on the site — and rubble such as old broken patio stones etc. On the site there were numerous beer caps, zip ties, garden hoses - it was a mess, as well as several points where you could simply drop your RV down a steep hill if you weren’t super careful. We spent a lot of times clearing crud out so it wouldn’t spike our tires. After finally getting the rig in - the pervasive smell of garbage took over - being that the site was about 100 yards from their ‘dump’ area - also a mess. We damaged several areas of our roof due to the very low branches on either side of the narrow ‘road’ (I use the term loosely). The same trees also pulled clear off our vortex vent on the roof (a feat!). Also, prior to the cg entrance is a super steep gravel hill - about 40 degrees, right after you turn on to their road - so you don’t have any real momentum to get up the hill nicely. (we received no warning of this when we called and reserved.) I would not recommend trying that hill with an RV in any sort of damp weather. The owners / managers themselves seemed nice, as did fellow campers (the few we saw). First night there they had a horseshoe contest - which was really rowdy - lots of loud yelling, loud cursing and beer clinking clearly heard even from several hundred yards away. The next day that area was still messy with debris from the ‘party’. We asked about return time for the gate locking and were informed ‘we only lock the gate on long weekends to stop people going into town late at night for more beer’! The water is completely undrinkable - in fact the supply was a buried green 20 year old garden hose … completely unsafe. The sewer hookups were a disaster and really seemed like an afterthought. And the water itself was terrible smelling. I think they were pumping it straight out of the pond. On one of the days we were there we had the pleasure of watching, smelling, and hearing their tractor pump the sewage from the front lawn pipes and go back and forth past our site with it to some ‘other’ place - all day long. The land is beautiful but the campground needs to be basically rebuilt. The cg store is really nothing but some old ice cream and t-shirts with the cg name on it (unlike the website ads). Wood is 8$ a bag (very large bag). The place is overrun by mosquitoes due to the stagnant ponds. Some of the seasonal campers are quite rowdy at times. The cg managers advised me the pictures on their web site are not even ‘their’ cg. I would not return. We camped at Blue Water Lakes Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We did not camp overnight. We wanted to stop by this park and pay to dump our black and grey tanks. We called ahead, and they said they were big rig accessible. Even though it's a small park, it was a 45 min drive through their park having to go 1-2 miles an hour due to incredibly narrow roads, pot holes (huge - several feet across!), and an incredible amount of low branches. The employee had us follow him down a 30 plus degree hill, and a super narrow dirt path, and we took out several trees branches with our RV (NOT HAPPY about those scratches). We also had to put the truck in 4x4 to get up the hill (nearly didn't make it, and there was nowhere to back up and get a 'running start'). Campers were stopping us and telling us we nearly lost our entire sewer pipe system on the steep hill and that we 'shouldn't be trying that hill in that rig!" (which we wouldn't have if the employee and owner hadn't insisted it was big rig friendly). Then we finally got to the dump station it was a mess. They use chunks of concrete to help you hold down the hose, but their pipe it too small, so it flies off, and we have to clean up sewage. It's super muddy and messy. Then it takes another ten minutes to get out of the campground thanks to the same issues. We burned about a 1/8th of a tank of diesel just driving in this park. Don't camp here. It's mostly seasonals. It's not well maintained and in NO way can it handle anything larger than a20ft trailer and SUV. Lastly we had called ahead to ask how much to fill our fresh water tank with potable water and were told it would be $50.00. It costs more to get water than to camp there for the night which makes no sense at all. We camped at Grand Oaks Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice, helpful Staff. Note: GPS (Garmin) shows this campground is in Temperanceville, VA. Wi-Fi is a joke. When I asked, I was informed its best at 'white tent.' However that was also so weak we could not even view connect to internet. Only time you could get any signal (1 bar) or bandwidth was at 4am. Cable TV is actually replicated DirecTV. Note there are NO local stations, so you're not going to get local weather! But there are about 20 or so channels. Pets allowed but not really accommodated. They ask you to pick up after them (of course) but throughout the ENTIRE park there are 4 garbage cans. So it means your carrying a bag of waste back to your site. The arcade is 3 video games, 1 air hockey, 1 pool table. Two ponds on grounds. Ducks, geese, and a horse pen. Treed sites are very treed (in a good way) and pull through sites are 100% unshaded (but grassed). Note: we were unable to get any cell signal anywhere in the park (T-mobile). Pump service available to those on non-septic sites ($5.00). No recycling. Would give it 10 if there was real Wi-Fi and proper local stations. (In trees there is no way to get your own satellite signal or local antenna stations.) Quiet park: very clean and well maintained. Will stay again. We camped at Tall Pines Harbor Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We have camped here 1/2 dozen times in the past 6 yrs. This year we noticed its become 90% season - lending the feeling that you're imposing on the seasonals. The speed bumps are ridiculous - every 50 feet and alternating across the road so that your truck and RV goes over at a bad angle. This year they introduced plastic hot pink wrist bands and asked us to wear them the entire stay - we refused and said that was ridiculous. They were not removable in a way we would be able to take them off to go shopping etc - and my 83 yr father in law would not wear a hot pink wristband. They claimed it was easier to see in cars entering. Instead we got the traditional paper for the dash board (which flies away very easily) - how about a mirror hanger like all the other parks use? Wi-Fi was down - we asked for it when we reserved - explaining it was essential (being out of country visitors it was they only way we could reach our sitter). When we called about it (after checking in parking etc etc) we were told a storm took out the Wi-Fi and that it would be over a week to fix! We would have gone else where - they knew it was down and had been for more than a week. On our return visit it was back up but so flaky it was basically not there - constantly dropping connection and super super slow. There is a lovely pond for kids to fish in - but there is no fountain and many run off 'creeks' run to it - breeding a huge amount of mosquitoes - which were rampant. The sites are not level (and being they're grass and gravel - 20 ft wide - it would have been pretty easy for them to do so). I am tired of paying extra for everything (at $50 plus a night this place is on the high side already). $10 For my guests to visit for dinner (not over night), $10 for my father in law to stay over night (from dinner to when we left 8 AM the next day). While the neighbour has 2-3 kids and pays no extra for that - it should be 4 people per site regardless of age but since its an adult you get charged extra. There is a great water play area if you have kids. They introduced soft serve ice cream this year - but it was expensive - $3.Plus - and stale. They require $20 cash deposit for the gate card. Since they close up at 9 PM that means you need it for just going out for dinner - as the park is about 40 min away from major towns. I had to go to an ATM in town to get cash for it. We stayed here on the long weekend July 2-3, and then 1 day in the next week. Staff if very friendly. Ultimately, though I think we will camp somewhere else next year - it's too expensive, too many add on fees and with the seasonals and the unlevel site not really worth it. We have no kids so the kid's park is not really useful to us. They do take Good Sam cards for a small discount. They are close to many vineyards (some of the best in the world) if you are looking for wine touring. We camped in the row by the washrooms, which is pretty much the only overnight pull through section left not used by seasonals. We camped at NET Camping Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Staff is very friendly, however steer clear of them helping you park your RV. They gave us directions on how to back our 37 ft 5th wheel (50 plus feet long w/ truck) in the back row - which proved rather difficult - since there was little room to do so. We watched them try to direct another 5th wheel into a corner lot (way too small for it) and that took them 40 min and 10 tries. They have fantastic activities for kids - and a beautiful play area. They have a deck near the pool thats pet friendly (a nice surprise). The roads are pretty narrow. The sites are much smaller than advertised (wide angle lens were clearly used in the images). When we arrived all the sites had picnic tables in the middle of the site, so me and my 83 yr old father in law had to carry it to the grass - not fun. Their are quite a few seasonals (mowing their grass and their neighbours for 2 hours on a Sunday morning; not something I really want to hear on my vacation). The camp store is decent. Their bathrooms are spotless and there is a nice rec area in the basement of the main building. Only washrooms are in main building - so a bit of a walk unless you are camped in the next street. Many puppy pick up stations and they claim they are adding a dog park. (We did not camp with our dogs this time). Wood was $7 a bag - and turned out to be off cuts of 2x4's!! that is not camp fire wood and a bit of a rip off. They do deliver the wood and the newspaper daily. All in all this place is way too expensive and we will likely stay somewhere else next time. If we had kids with us then i can see the value as they have definitely catered to the kids with activities etc. Some nights ran $80.00 A night. This place also wanted you to wear wristbands - but they stated as long as you had it with you that was fine (ie in your pocket to show) if you wanted to participate in events. Did not need them to enter park. (In fact park security is rather lax as we drove in several times forgetting to put the yellow mirror hanger up and we were not stopped). Lots of chipmunks :) Who are friendly. Overall, nice park, clean park, but overpriced for someone who is just camping to see the local sights. We camped at 1000 Islands / Ivy Lea KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Very friendly cg owners, very tidy. They offered us a site with a deck at first (even though the rules state no dogs on deck sites), then when we asked for a bit more seclusion (since this was the dogs first camping trip) they happily obliged. Guided us up the hill and helped us park. They are very very dog friendly. There were many dogs of many sizes - even great Danes. My two large dogs were welcomed openly. Never a complaint that my puppy was occasionally barking (she was in training), in fact the staff usually waved at the dogs when they drove by on the golf carts. (I would say that the gas powered golf carts are a bit loud). The sites are rather narrow and our site had a walking path thru it - but they had no issue with us putting a rug out on that path and using it as part of our space. There is a nice dog park (small) which has agility equipment. The dogs are allowed everywhere but buildings and playgrounds. Refreshing to take them for a walk on the nature path (most parks don't allow that). There was a horrendous torrential rain storm - flooding the park out for several hours, but as soon as it stopped raining they were out in full force tidying up the debris, filling the holes from the flooding, and getting it all ship shape. I was amazed how fast they got it all back in order. The lanes are a bit tight w/ a big rig (our rig is 36 feet) for turns due to lots of trees. The cable is free, as is the internet. And they don't charge a cent extra for the dogs (again refreshing). On a side note - there is a great Korean diner south on Hwy 11 on the way in to Natural Bridge - we highly suggest the gal-bi (Korean BBQ). We will visit here again. We right behind the main house - a bit busy in that site. We camped at Natural Bridge / Lexington KOA in a Fifth Wheel.
