Pine Ridge RV Campground, Birch Run, Michigan

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $39.00
Overall Rating:      

Travelling home from the Michigan U.P. on route 75 my wife and I needed a stop over campground for an overnight. My wife found Pine Ridge on the phone app RVParky along with 3-4 other CG's. Pine Ridge was the only one that answered the phone, they had a site for us and was friendly and courteous. The other parks never called back. Being the type of camper that likes to research each campground we stay at when planning a trip I was a bit leery on what kind of place we would be pulling into. Well, to our surprise and as shown by our rating, what a pure delight this campground is. Off exit 139 from 75 So. it is located less than four miles from the very well known town of Frankenmuth, MI, which I've told my wife numerous times how many people have recommended Frankenmuth as a must visit long weekend place to go. Pine Ridge is a large extremely clean well run CG. It is a pull thru site heaven consisting of what appears to be about 100 or maybe more large well spaced pull thru sites! All are hard packed crushed binder stone pads with well trimmed grass lawns so nice we didn't put our patio mat out. Our site had 50 amp service, water and sewer and it also appeared that all of their sites were set up the same way. There are no fancy pools or playgrounds for the young-ins, no expense Wi-Fi, a few swings and a slide and a basketball half court hoop. Strict security when entering, patrolling around on a golf cart and you are given a security code for the gate for re-entry after hours. My wife and I liked this place so much we added a day to our trip and stayed an extra night! We commented to the very friendly gent in the office that whoever designed and owned Pine Ridge must be or was a camper themselves with the lay-out of their campground. Clean, very quiet, well spaced full service pull thru sites, secure, and so convenient to a tourist attraction like Frankenmuth, you will enjoy your visit here too! We can't wait to go back! We camped at Pine Ridge RV Campground in a Motorhome.

Norfolk Conservation Area, Simcoe, Ontario

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $44.00
Overall Rating:      

Norfolk is an old campground occupied mostly by seasonal campers. We have visited it now twice because we have family doing just that there. Sites are small, uneven either grass or gravel. Our rig is 12'6" high and we did encounter low hanging branches driving to our campsite. Our site, number 104 sits on the bluff overlooking Lake Erie. No fire ring and a rickety old picnic table. We were unable to level our motor home with out the trick of lifting the rear wheels off of the ground First time here was May of 2016 and we did have a great view looking out over the lake. This most recent visit June 2017 most of the view was blocked by vegetation. The electrical grid is old and subject to power outages, though a problem I thought I had with the power pedestal turned out to be a bad extension cord I was using. The staff was real helpful and very forthright regarding the age of the park and the utilities. Norfolk could be a very nice campground if the Ontario government put some money into it. However, talking to the staff they have done the reverse and cut their budget and raised the seasonal fee by $700 in two seasons. We noticed the number of empty seasonal sites compared to last year. We probably would go back because of the family we have there, for that reason only. We camped at Norfolk Conservation Area in a Motorhome.

North Pole Resorts, Wilmington, New York

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $43.00
Overall Rating:      

My wife and I really enjoyed our recent stay at the North Pole Rv Park. We stayed at their newest addition to the 100 Pines area about 2/10 of a mile up Rt. 86 from the main office, campground and hotel. We enjoyed 50 amp full hook ups with cable, 11 channels, in a level spacious site number 34. These sites are the newest additions to 100 Pines. Large stone sites with plenty of spacing side to side and rear from the neighboring site. Check in was fast and pleasant.

Small complaint is where to pull in, as you approach the office on Rt. 86 with having a toad on a dolly, being careful that there is enough room to turn and navigate. That in itself turned out ok, with the owner carefully directing me out of the front lot, then having someone meet us at 100 Pines offering assistance in taking our care off the dolly and storing the dolly on site. (We later saw two staff do all of the un-loading and storing of toad and dolly on a 40 foot class A.)

100 Pines is peaceful and quiet. All the newer sites such as ours, have light posts along the camp road lighting the way at night. North Pole literature mentions that Wi-Fi is available near the rec building/bathrooms/shower, but being 3-4 sites away I had a good signal on my cell phone, along with a strong cell signal too on Verizon.

This campground offers some of the largest and nicest pull through sites that I have seen in the little older wooded (pines!) section. However, I don't think these sites are full hook up. Our neighbors mentioned that previously they stayed up the road at a KOA but liked 100 Pines much more for the quiet and generous state park sized sites.

This campground is 11 miles outside of Main Street Lake Placid, about 2 miles from Whiteface Mtn. ski lifts and summer chair rides up the ski slopes and about 8 miles from the car ride up Veteran's Memorial Highway taking you to the summit of Whiteface Mtn. We can't wait to return to North Pole RV Resort! We camped at North Pole Resorts in a Motorhome.

Traverse City State Park, Traverse City, Michigan

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $28.00
Overall Rating:      

Traverse City SP campground is the closest and most convenient campground to downtown Traverse City, a scant four miles! This is a huge campground with almost 400 sites! My wife and I were concerned it would be like the packed conditions at Yankee Springs when we started this trip along Michigan's west coast. To our delight and surprise TC SP is a very woodsy sandy beautiful campground. The interior streets are narrow but we got through OK with our 35 ft. motor home with a dolly tow. The sites all appear mostly level hard pack sand. Power hook ups can be a long distance away, on the opposite side (camp side) of your electrical supply. Thankfully I carry a 30 ft. 30 amp extension cord. Two campsites share the same power pedestal so that would make it every other site will have power on the correct side. Our site was only a couple of rows away from Hwy 72 outside the campground but the road noise did not affect our stay at all. There is a walkway bridge over the highway to access the beautiful fluffy sandy beach, park of the state park. Beautiful setting with plenty of room to stretch out! Shower and bathroom facilities were kept clean and supplied. One thing that we came to appreciate is the individual shower rooms Michigan State Parks have. Very private with good water pressure and hot water (I at times use park showers while the Mrs. uses the one in our RV to expedite our readiness). Within walking distance are several restaurants and resorts and Traverse City is a short bike or vehicle ride away. My wife and I know we will be returning to TC SP soon because our last visit was too short to enjoy all that the area has to offer. We camped at Traverse City State Park in a Motorhome.

Orchard Beach State Park, Manistee, Michigan

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $28.00
Overall Rating:      

Orchard Beach State Park campground was our third Michigan SP during our recent travels up the Michigan west coast. This place is absolutely beautiful! The campground sits on a bluff overlooking Lake Michigan. Gorgeous sunsets abound. The sites are level sand and grassy large sites with generous spacing between both side to side and back to back. Upon check in the three rangers had big smiles welcoming you to Orchard Beach. This campground may be the cleanest campground my wife and I ever stayed at. Its even spotless neat and clean around the dumpsters! Most sites are nicely treed with openings to the sun should you want to take in some rays. Its has a long stairway done to the lake shore for what might be termed the "beach" area but it is a small area and rocky. The lake seemed to have a step drop off also. However, less than two miles up the road is a county beach with a more typical Michigan huge sandy beach to enjoy all of your swimming and sun bathing desires! My wife and I can't wait to return to Orchard Beach SP! We camped at Orchard Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

Yankee Springs Gun Lake-Modern Campground, Middleville, Michigan

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $28.00
Overall Rating:      

Yankee Springs is a relatively large campground on Gun Lake which is a flood control type man made lake. Beautiful and a great lake to ski, tube wake board etc. The campground is an older facility. During our visit the temperatures were in the low 90s. Our 30 amp service continued to cut out to the degree that the second day in I talked to the park rangers about getting my money back. They were very understanding but did suggest that I try plugging into the power pedestal with out using my Progressive Industries power and surge protector. I politely declined telling them I have more faith in the P.I. device that their power supply. A couple of real nice rangers than came by and changed the circuit breakers and plug socket. This seemed to do the trick. If it wasn't for the great service by the three rangers who addressed my power issue I would've given YS a lower rating. This campground lets anything go. They do not seem to limit the amount of people on each campsite, though the Michigan DNR reservation system asks how many people will be on a site. Next to us was a birthday party with over 20-30 people sitting around pop up shelters with numerous kids. At other sites you would see extension cords running all over the place to power all kinds of electronics beside just campers. No wonder they have brown outs when the temps get into the 90s. It a shame because YS has some real nice water front campsites that some folks had their boats tied up to shoreline posts. Swimming in the lake is easy and convenient either at the small campground only sandy beach or anywhere along the shoreline, the water is very shallow a long way out. My wife and I don't think we would return to Yankee Springs, its just to crowded and loud for our camping pleasure. We camped at Yankee Springs Gun Lake-Modern Campground in a Motorhome.

Norfolk Conservation Area, Simcoe, Ontario

Date of Stay: May, 2016 - $43.00
Overall Rating:      

Norfolk Conservation Area is a provincial run park along the shores of Lake Erie. In the area there are a number of "Conservation Area" parks dotting the lake coastline with perhaps the most popular in the area being Turkey Point Conservation area because of its beautiful sandy beach on Lake Erie. We stayed at Norfolk because a family member has a seasonal camper there. This is an older park filled mostly with seasonal campers in mostly very very old trailers. Sites are all gravel or grass, somewhat flat to very uneven. Some, such as the site we had 104, are on the cliff side bank of Lake Erie offering beautiful views, especially at night of the surrounding coast line. Though the rangers where very friendly and helpful in providing us with a site big enough to accommodate our 35 ft. class A, I don't think anything larger would fit. We did encounter some low hanging branches entering the park. Roads are rutted gravel/dirt. We only had 30 amp service and the last day at the park the temps got down to the mid 30s, and my surge protected kept cutting power to our rig, probably because of all the electric heaters running. We would visit again only if we got the same site 104 and because we did enjoy touring around Port Dover, Long Point and some nearby wineries. We camped at Norfolk Conservation Area in a Motorhome.

Norfolk is sandwiched between Port Dover, known for its Friday the 13 motorcycle gathering that this past 13th in May attached over 100,000 visitors to a town of 6,000. To the north west is Long Point that is a summer tourist town with miles of sandy beach on Lake Erie.

Port Dover is fun, with some great water front dining spots and a nice sandy beach. Visit Frisky Beaver winery, you won't be disappointed in their wine. Simcoe is a nice vibrant town and Turkey point has lake front pubs and a long sandy beach.

Sampson State Park, Romulus, New York

Date of Stay: October, 2015 - $21.00
Overall Rating:      

For the past several year my DW and I end our camping season with a stay at Sampson State Park. Centrally located between quaint Geneva, NY and Watkins Glen and in the middle of the renowned world class Finger Lakes Wine region. The staff at Sampson is and has always been very friendly and pleasant upon check in. This is a large campground with close to 300 campsites. Like most state parks the sites have electric only and being an older campground most are 30amp only. The trade off though is the large roomy sites available both treed or if you are using a roof top satellite dish out in the open. The comfort stations (restroom and showers) are spotlessly clean and in the fall very warm and comfortable. Generally in late fall Sampson will only have one loop with electric open with about 30-40 sites. However, because of the mild east coast weather this year, their was a demand for more sites than normally open. To Sampson's credit they opened up their largest RV loop and most popular to accommodate all of the requests! Not many campgrounds, public or private would be willing to be that flexible. While visiting Sampson make sure you take in the on grounds military museum with many interesting artifacts and stories of how vital Sampson was as a military base and the incredible speed in which it was built to help win WWII. Enjoy Sampson, Geneva where Emile's restaurant has the best bone on prime rib anywhere and of course the many fine Finger Lakes wineries. We camped at Sampson State Park in a Motorhome.

Sweetwater Forest Family Camping Resort, Brewster, Massachusetts

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

Sweetland is a large campground located just about central Cape Cod. It is as called Sweetland Forest because it is an atypical campground with a lot of trees and the sense of being in a forest. Starting at the road driving in, the cg is about a 1/2 mile in from the main highway, most or all roads are hard packed sand. Roadways within the cg are somewhat narrow and though they have some sites near the office to back in larger campers, some very large 40 ft. motorhomes or 5th wheels would have a hard time navigating through the park. My wife and I loved this park because of the quiet sandy forested setting. The campsites are also hard packed sand and for the most part pretty level. Some sites may be a bit challenging to either enter or exit from depending on which way you come into your site. We had move from one site to another because we added additional nights at a later date. Our first site only had 30amp service. We had trouble with breakers in our rig popping. Could not run one AC even with nothing on. Contacted the office and they sent a fellows out who found out my pedestal was only showing 106 volts, or a brown out. Later, we ran the AC. When I moved from the first site I did damage to my motor home basement doors that dragged on the slope of the campsite as I exited the site. However, if I would of gone the other way this probably wouldn't of happened, but I didn't want to drag my empty dolly around the bumpy narrow twisting road to our new site. Rests rooms were clean with 4 toilets in each, three sinks and two showers which were a little small. Water pressure in the showers was great and the water was as hot as my home. Office staff was excellent checking in and very helpful in suggestions of things to do and see on Cape Cod. One waterfront restaurant suggested by them became our go-to while there. This campground represents to my wife and I why we like to camp. We are already wondering how soon if will be until we return. We camped at Sweetwater Forest Family Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $44.00
Overall Rating:      

If you are planning to visit Cooperstown perhaps for your little league baseball at Dream Park or to visit the Baseball Hall of Fame then this is the campground you want to stay at. Just up the road, Seminary Rd., from Dream Park it has large state park types of campsites either shaded in really nice wooded areas or out in the open big rig friendly pull thrus or back in for those with satellite dishes. The site are crushed gravel almost concrete like. level side to side with front to back sloping. The roads are wide and clear of tree branches both overhead and side to side. They also have 26 cabins on site for those who wish to camp but don't have a RV. The owners are campers themselves and you can tell by the layout and care of their park. There is no cable nor I believe Wi-Fi, but I don't base reviews on either of those items, otherwise I would just stay home. Peace full and secure with a security gate that you get a pass key for when you check in. While we were there there was one heck of a thunder storm, just as we were about to start a campfire. Afterwards I took a walk around the campground and I was amazed of the drainage and water run off. No puddles, no muddy campsite, it was like it never rained! This is one of the nicest with the largest well laid out private campgrounds my wife and I have visited! We had site D6, a wooded pull thru site in July 2015. Excellent place to stay while in Cooperstown, just 5 miles outside of town. As a previous review stated, follow the website directions getting to the camp, very easy and less hills to climb. We camped at Hartwick Highlands Campground in a Motorhome.

Twin Lakes RV Park, Cumming, Georgia

Date of Stay: September, 2014 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

We recently stayed five nights at Twin Lakes to attend a wedding in Milton, GA, six miles down the road. This campground is almost perfect. Large, even, flat treed stone sites on terraced hills. 50amps, water, sewer conveniently located where the should be for quick connection to your rig. At $35 a nite no less. Where it receives less than a ten is no WiFi to our knowledge and what is very strange, no shower/toilet comfort station. Grounds are immaculate. Lakes are pretty with two fountains which are lit at night. They do offer 30amp sites fronting the lake, however its like parking in a stone parking lot and no sewer. They charge $10 to dump. Quiet as quiet can get. We wondered if some of the campers parked there are for some of the expensive nearby homes that do not allow RV's in their driveway. Extremely friendly and helpful staff willing to help however they can. Very convenient to Rt. 400 that will take you to I-75 into Atlanta, or exits to nearby Alpharetta, Rowell, and surrounding northern suburbs of Atlanta. We would stay here again.

Creekside RV Park, Pigeon Forge, Tennessee

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

My wife and I just got back from a three day stay at Creekside RV Park. This is one of the nicest, if not "The" nicest private campground we have ever stayed at. We had site 28, no reservation, called in route to check availability and their last open site, which backed up to a creek. Setting up camp on our gravel level site we were greeted by a family of ducks. 30amp service with sewer and water was more than adequate. Concrete pad on curbside for your patio. Free wi-fi with a decent signal. Though the site size was somewhat small compared to our more used to state parks, with the stream and grass area behind our rig we found it to be zero problem and we enjoyed adult beverages and campfires in comfort. The recently remodeled shower house was the best shower/toilet facility of any campground I have we have stayed at, private or government. Spotless, more water pressure than I have at home and they have a country music radio station playing at a decent volume to boot. This is a very quiet park that is on the shuttle run to take you into Sevierrville, Pigeon Forge or Gatlinburg. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Creekside RV Park in a Motorhome.

King Phillip's Campground, Lake George, New York

Date of Stay: July, 2014 - $50.00
Overall Rating:      

Recently spent four nights at King Phillips in site V-9. They are only about 3 miles from the village of Lake George. Very convenient. Our site had full hook ups including cable and fair sized. Site was crusher stone which was very level. We stayed here several years back and you can see many improvements to the CG. All roads and campsites are stoned over like our site. Many sites are wooded hill side and appear to be again fair sized. Bath houses appear to have been recently remodeled as they have tiled walls, floors and counter tops with new pine wood toilet dividers. Showers were separate enclosures that were dated but clean with good water pressure. There are many seasonal campers in this park. Our site was perpendicular to three and if they were at their trailers during our visit we would of had no privacy. The hill side sites appear more private. Also, because of so many seasonal campers there is a lot of traffic (golf carts) buzzing around the CG. With the stone roads, after awhile it gets irritating to listen to the noise. King Phillips has a very irregular lay out to it and could use a golf cart escort to lead campers to their sites. We watched many arrivals pull in and then have to back out to find their spot. Office staff is very friendly and helpful with suggestions on the area. Our rate is an average with Good Sam discount for our stay which we thought wasn't bad considering the area. If we came back to the Lake George area we would consider coming back but request a quieter hill side site. We camped at King Phillip's Campground in a Motorhome.

Cedar Creek COE, Mt Juliet, Tennessee

Date of Stay: October, 2012 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

Camped here over Columbus Day weekend for five nights. Somewhat surprised to find the CG at the end of a road through a residential neighborhood. However, what a surprise it was! Beautiful large level sites, some with concrete pads and patios, the rest with gravel. Sites off of loops (there was about six) which nicely breaks up the traditional row upon row of RV's. This CG is on Old Hickory Lake which is a beautiful setting, looking more like a river than lake. Shower/Restrooms were spotless and cleaned every morning by 9 am. There were only two facilities open so there was a bit of a walk to them. The new facility was a combination of shower and toilet and sink in your own private room with about ten stations in the building. Excellent! The work camper husband and wife who ran the CG were friendly and helpful with RV questions. This campground is located 17 miles from downtown Nashville and a lot closer to Opryland and Opryland Resort. That is why we chose it, about a 25 minute ride with an easy to follow route. Only reason my wife and I don't give Cedar Creek a 10 is the gravel sites tend to track a lot of gravel into your RV (I know, picky). And moreover, some sites such as ours backed up to a public access road leading to picnic areas by the lake beach front and a boat launch ramp. At night there was a reasonable amount of vehicles going in and out of this area and it made us feel like our outdoor equipment such as chairs and grill etc. were out and exposed. Kept the porch light on all night which I never do. One more point, we have not camped anywhere else that so many people walk through campsites then we experienced here. We would definitely camp here again though because the the positives and beauty far out weigh our minor complaints. We camped at Cedar Creek COE in a Motorhome.

This was our first stay at this Corps of Engineer Park (almost like a National Park), though we have stayed at it's sister park about 11 miles away: Ives Run. We both liked this park a bit more than Ives Run do to the large shaded sites available. All sites have paved drives for your RV along with a pea gravel patio type spot for the picnic table and pole with hook to hang your lantern. Very nice! A fire ring with grill top is also included in each site. Very handy to cook over a campfire as we, and our neighbors did for breakfast. There are a handful of water front sites on Cowanesque Lake, but the ranger tells us these sites are always booked months in advance. The lake itself is great for kayaking, which is why we choose this CG (and Ives Run) and small boating and fishing. Quiet, peaceful (even families with small kids) friendly staff and beautiful surroundings make this just about a perfect campground! We camped at Tompkins COE in a Motorhome.
