Waterways Campground, Cheboygan, Michigan

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $41.00
Overall Rating:

We made a late reservation and got a site large enough for a 40' fifth wheel with 50 amp power, water and sewer connections that all worked as expected. On arrival we received a warm welcome from the owner who checked us in and later, during our stay, I was pleasantly surprised when, without any further interaction, he remembered my name. Our site was grass but wasn't level from side to side and it took several layers of the orange blocks to bring the passenger side up. Interior roads are gravel and there is a 5mph speed limit. There are plenty of trees within the campground, many of those are fruit trees which may attract wasps later in the year. Being close to the M-27 and M-33 roads, I did notice quite a lot of traffic noise, especially trucks using their jake brakes. There is a boat launch and mooring at the campground which is accessible for campground residents. Some of the sites appear to be taken by seasonal guests but from my experience there are lots of good sites available for transient RVers such as myself. The washroom were always clean and had a smell of fresh paint. There was a notice to indicate the washrooms closed at 10pm but I didn't find that to be the case. We camped at Waterways Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Port Huron Township RV Park, Port Huron, Michigan

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

We called in here late in the afternoon on a very hot day after having driven down from Mackinaw. The CG is easy to find, located just off the interstate prior to crossing the bridge in to Canada (travelling east). Fortunately, the reception lady was able to give us a space on a (Canadian) holiday weekend, that we could shoe-horn our 40' 5er in to. Although it did take the help of a couple of other guest who uprooted some marker posts, enabling us to squeeze in. On the site we had the utility posts are shared which meant that for us, power and water was on our door side and the cable and hose ran across the site and under the rig. With that said, the power was a stable 120v 50amp supply and the water came at a good pressure. We didn't bother hooking up to sewer, although it was there if we needed it. This appears to be a very sociable CG with several organized activities (pot luck, coffee mornings, etc.). Nearby we found diesel at a very good price when compared to what we'd been paying elsewhere in MI and certainly what I expect we'll be shelling out for in ON. Despite being so close to a major interstate, traffic noise wasn't really noticeable while the AC was running. We found this to be a good stopping point if travelling too or from Canada at the Port Huron/Sarnia crossing point. One thing to consider. If using a credit card, there is a separate charge - in our case $4. We camped at Port Huron Township RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Green Acre Park, Waterloo, Ontario

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $53.00
Overall Rating:

The price indicated is in Cdn $. This is a very large campground occupied by mainly seasonal guests. There are, however, approximately 80 assorted sites for short-term guests. 
On arrival the check-in was easy and we were given an escort to our site. This was about the only interaction we had with staff during our week-long stay. We had a site that was just long enough for our truck and 40' fifth wheel trailer. The site was a mix of gravel and dirt with a narrow patch of grass separating us from our neighbours on both sides. On our door side we had a very uneven brick patio area with weeds growing through and a picnic bench. Towards the front end of the site we had a fire pit. The sewer, 50 amp power and water utilities were conveniently located for where the layout of our RV has them located. The utilities also worked very well despite the huge draw on power caused by the excessive heat and people having to use their AC most of the time. The site itself had quite a slope from front to rear and a slight slope from side to side which I was able to handle thanks to the orange blocks and the hydraulic levelling system on my rig. Other than the bathrooms and laundry ($3 to wash) we did not use other guest facilities such as the pool. The bathrooms were always clean during our visit despite never seeing them closed for service. Wi-fi is included in the price and varied in ability. One thing to note here; every time you either log off or shut down the computer for a few minutes you then had to log back in using the user id and code provided. Despite the number of people and it also being over the Canadian and US major holiday dates this campground was very quiet. This is a long drive from Toronto and not an ideal location if you're using that as a base to see the city or visit family and friends living there. With that said, it is one of the better RV campgrounds in the area and I would consider staying here again. We camped at Green Acre Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Visit St Jacobs Farmers Market. The best days are Thursday and Saturday. Also open on a Tuesday but that's when they're selling off the produce left over from the Saturday - according to the locals. Grocery shopping within a couple of miles from the CG (Sobeys)

Glen Rouge Campground, Toronto, Ontario

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $41.00
Overall Rating:

This campground is on the very eastern edge of Toronto and the price per night is in Cdn $ without the $10 reservation fee or tax (13%). Having travelled from Waterloo, ON this place was pretty easy to find, located a short distance from the 401 at the bottom of a slight dip in the Kingston Road. Signage from the street isn't great but out GPS took us straight in. Check-in was simple but I didn't get any map of the CG and drove in using memory from when I'd made a reservation. Despite the proximity to the highway, noise is buffered by the trees and barely noticeable. The interior road signs could do with improvement because shortly after entering the park the single lane in/out road splits in to three separate roads without any indication about what sites are on which road. The interior roads are paved and do go around in a series of loops. The site was very long and big enough for our 40' 5er and truck. It also appeared to be quite wide but that may be because we had nothing parked next to us in the adjacent two sites for the duration of our stay. The site was grass and dirt (where someone had previously had a carpet for an extended time killing the grass). We had a picnic table and fire pit. Water pressure was good as was the 30 amp power we had. There are no sewer sites here which is a let down and meant I had to go out and buy a waste water tote to empty the grey tanks on the rig. There is only one set of CG washrooms that are cleaned but due to the volume of people using them, soon began to look untidy. What you don't see from their map is these are located atop of a hill about 30' above the CG level. There is a steep path or set of stairs to access these but for those in a wheelchair or other medical condition it could be very challenging to reach. Wi-Fi was good and is included in the price. There are lots of trees that provide good shade and a habitat for wildlife. Raccoons are prevalent so ensure everything is secured overnight. We camped at Glen Rouge Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Jack Pine Lodge Campground, Manistique, Michigan

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

We arrived on a Saturday afternoon having made an on-line reservation only the evening before and to my surprise the campground was almost empty. Check-in was very easy at the bar/restaurant just off the M-94. The staff member here was very friendly and provided us with good directions to our site. Once we got in to our site, the host took the time to come over and introduce himself which I thought was a nice, friendly gesture. We had site #19 as it is located on the end of a row with no neighbours on our door side - just ferns and trees. The site was long enough for our 40' 5er plus truck. The pad was made of gravel but sloped towards the back and required some leveling on the door side to bring us straight. The utilities are located at the back of the site which required us to use an extension hose for water as our intake is towards the front of the rig. Our 35' 50 amp cable was long enough to reach. We had a fire pit available but didn't use it. We also had a large picnic bench that we did use. There is no cable and we couldn't find any OTA tv signals but their wi-fi was flawless. The washrooms are clean with good access for the disabled. We didn't use the showers but they looked ok. The TP is extremely thin, single ply paper. Perhaps something to do with the septic system. There is a laundry with two washers and two dryers. $2 for a wash, $1 for the dryer. The grounds are well maintained and I did see the staff raking the sites when the opportunity arose. For children there is a play area close to the restaurant. Food at the bar/restaurant is excellent and I would recommend the burger or the beef sandwich. Traffic noise from the M-94 is minimal and didn't bother us at all. The flies and other bugs are ferocious but manageable. We really enjoyed our three nights here, feeling very safe and would certainly stop here again when next in the area. We camped at Jack Pine Lodge Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Top O' The Morn Resort & Campground, Iron River, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $33.00
Overall Rating:

In May we tried to reserve a weekend here for late June but found the CG was already pretty booked up. The owners were very responsive and placed us on a wait list for any last minute cancellations but ultimately we could only have one night there on an electric/water site. Our location actually placed us right in amongst a seasonal family and we felt as though we would be encroaching on their space if we sat outside. Not the fault of anyone, just our feeling. The site we did have was an old but fairly level concrete pad that we squeezed out 40' 5er on to. It was nicely shaded and had a large grassy space but like I mentioned, merged in to our neighbours fire pit and green space. The hosts/owners or managers (not sure) were very responsive and tried hard to find us a serviced space but due to the popularity of this location we could only have the one night. Power and water was very good and their wi-fi was excellent. There are some really nice locations within the CG which also has access to a lake in which you can swim, water-ski, kayak or canoe. The CG is far enough from Hwy 2 that you cannot hear it and no trains! We didn't try for any tv stations and don't have satellite. There is an on-site bar and laundry that we didn't make use of. The washrooms were older but clean, located behind the office/bar area and accessible 24/7. This is very much a family orientated CG but still quiet enough for a couple in their mid 50's with no kids or pets and we would definitely stay here again. We camped at Top O' The Morn Resort & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Grand Forks Campground, Grand Forks, North Dakota

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

This former KOA is located alongside the busy I-29 and suffers from a lot of traffic noise but with that said, we did know this prior to arriving. Access to the CG is via the Hwy 81 intersection and after passing a Flying J travel centre, continue down the road until it becomes a washboard gravel/dirt track. The CG is then in a copse of Cottonwood trees on the right. Check in was easy even though we arrived without a reservation. The first site I was given was a little too short for my 40' 5er but was quickly changed when I asked for a longer site that would allow me to stay connected and not hang out in to the drive lanes. Water pressure was good and the 50 amp power was steady during our stay. The sewer connection was simply a small diameter pipe going straight down with a chunk of paving covering the hole. Sites are gravel/dirt and ours appeared to be fairly level. As others have mentioned, the trees could do with a trim to enable large MH's and full profile 5ers to maneuver without risking injury to roofs. Between sites there is a small strip of grass for separation and a few scattered shrubs. I'm not 100% sure where the railroad tracks were located but the trains running along them were loud enough to be very noticeable during the night. The bathrooms were old but clean and there is a laundry but we didn't venture inside. I did notice several warnings about rinsing either your rig or tow vehicle which is actively discouraged with a $25 charge for doing either one. This was Ok for a night's stopover while driving towards our final destination but not for anything else - for us anyway. We camped at Grand Forks Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Indian Head Campground (formerly Indian Head KOA), Indian Head, Saskatchewan

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $47.00
Overall Rating:

All fees are in Cdn $ and include tax. We arrived here during the midweek, without an advanced booking, after a 900km drive along the TCH. The registration was quick and easy, facilitated by helpful staff that also escorted us to the site. My GS card had expired but if I chose to re-subscribe prior to departure the following morning they offered to honour the discount. This former KOA is located on the eastern end of the small-town and literally yards from the TCH and a railroad line. The highway isn't really a noise problem but the three trains that pulled through the town during the night did announce their arrival with long blasts of the horn because of un-gated crossing points. The site we had was level gravel and about 100' long. Lined with trees, it afforded some degree of privacy and still allowed our opposing slides to fully extend. Some sites are also very open and would allow good satellite reception. Each site appears to have a small patio equipped with a picnic bench and a fire pit (made from a washing machine drum). Internal roads are dusty in warm weather but would easily turn to mud & dirt when it rains as evidenced by the wheel ruts at the site. The services were centrally located along the length of the site and all worked as expected, although wi-fi was painfully slow. There is a pool, laundry and other amenities we didn't use because we only stayed overnight. The bathrooms are dated but clean and we used our on-board shower, not the CG's. This is a good CG for 2 - 3 nights max but I'm not sure what else there is to see and do in the area. When passing along we would stop here again. We camped at Indian Head Campground (formerly Indian Head KOA) in a Fifth Wheel.

Coyote Creek Golf & RV Resort, Sundre, Alberta

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

We have been to Coyote Creek several times throughout the spring, summer and now fall. The current daily fee remains $45 Cdn. For this you have a large (75'x25') level, gravel pad with 20, 30 & 50 amp power that has always remained steady, even when the park was full. Water and sewer are also provided at each of the 40 rental sites and again have always been consistently good. The shower house is clean and well supplied with paper daily. The showers have a good flow of hot water and do not require additional payment. The laundry has two washers ($2) and dryers ($?). There is a book/games exchange, bottle and can recycling. Wi-Fi works well but can get a little slow when the park is full. No cable and only 3 OTA stations but pretty open for satellite reception. Wood for fires can be purchased or you can bring your own. Even when full, this park was very quiet. There is no childrens play park immediately nearby although I think there is one at the seasonal section of sites. No dog walk but plenty of places nearby. The staff are always friendly. There is an advertised on-site wash available by phoning a mobile wash company. Equally, a local RV dealer has a mobile repair service available 7 days per week June, July & August. If there is one site I would not select that would be # 40 - purely for the fact it is alongside the shower house. Other than that, all sites are very good. 2-7, 8 - 15 back on to trees. 36 - 40 back on to the golf course and 16 - 25 back up to the season sites, separated by a tall, white fence. 26 - 35 are pull-through. Dumpster adjacent to the showers Ice and ice-cream sold in the office but nothing else. There is decent shopping in town, only ten minutes drive away. We will continue to visit Coyote Creek as our weekend away venue each season. We camped at Coyote Creek Golf & RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Chinook Cove Golf & RV, Barriere, British Columbia

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

The price is in Canadian $ before tax. No discount unless staying seven nights, then one night is free. The RV Park - not really a resort - is located on an elevated, level platform of ground above the golf club. Check-in is at the golf club and was fast. We had a gravel pull-thru site but fairly narrow and about 60' long. Very tight for our 40' 5er with opposing slides and 23' tow vehicle. I had to park away from my rig because of the placement of the trailer on the site - optimized for the utility post and being able to slot it in between the slid-outs. Our site had 20, 30 & 50 amp power (not all have 50amp), water & sewer. Water was a good pressure and the sewer was a ground level towards the rear of the site. Voltage read a steady 120. Wi-Fi is included in the cost of staying and we had a good, strong connection. Between the sites is a neatly mowed strip of grass about 12' wide and a gravel patio area with a heavy picnic table. The bathrooms were clean and tidy. For the men, one very large stall - very easy to get a wheelchair in and a grab bar for assistance. One very large shower stall and two hand sinks. There is a laundry - one washer and one dryer. $2 each (loonies). Also an outside kitchen prep area at the end of the washhouse building. Communal fire pit - no fire pits at sites. The railroad track is about 1km away but the rumble of the trains is very noticeable during the quiet of the night. There is no children's play area or dog walking section. I could not get any OTA TV signals but this is Canada and in the Rookies. Sites 8 - 11 look fairly short and may only fit an RV of about 20 - 25' with tow vehicle. All sites are south facing so pretty much full sun exposure all day with only small trees for shade. What is shown as overflow parking on their site map is now half a dozen electric and water only sites and a dump station.

The RV host was very pleasant and always busy trimming the grass or pruning the trees. We camped at Chinook Cove Golf & RV in a Fifth Wheel.

Sicamous KOA, Sicamous, British Columbia

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $51.00
Overall Rating:

The rate shown is in Cdn $ and before the KOA member discount. I paid using my KOA points so my actual cost was $0. This is conveniently located on the Trans Canada Highway just east of Sicamous. Being so convenient there was highway noise but that does die down late in the evening. Also not too far from the obligatory railroad but that didn't cause us any problem. Check-in was relatively painless even though we had no reservation. The receptionist was fairly new and under instruction but she did a good job and was pleasant. However, I didn't get any KOA literature or plan of the park so had no idea where anything was. Neither did we get an escort to our site or wi-fi code but as this was a one-night stop it wasn't a major problem and I used my Telus hotspot. We were given site 100. A very private site, tucked in to the back corner of the park and about the furthest point away from the TCH. It was a gravel & dirt site, fairly level and pretty wide - enough for opposing slides. Long enough for a 40' 5er and 23' F350 truck. Equipped with a picnic table, fire pit, 30amp power, water & sewer. All well positioned but no breaker on post and had to walk to the office to get staff to re-set after it tripped. Interior roads are dust & dirt. Even at walking speed I kicked up a lot of dust towing to the site. The back row was very poorly lit - non existent. Without a layout I set out to locate the washrooms - only one set for the CG - I believe. Fairly clean but the showers looked dated and the kind that are very difficult to keep clean - looking at these. Bathroom stalls are wide for disabled access but I didn't see any grab bars to help. They offer curbside trash pickup There is a pool, children's play area and an all you can eat daily pancake breakfast for $5.95 (incl drinks ) - bacon extra $ Good for an overnight stop but that would be it - for us anyway. We camped at Sicamous KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Okotoks Lions Sheep River Campground, Okotoks, Alberta

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

The rate indicated is the daily rate in Cnd $ with no discount and before tax @ 5%. This Lions CG is situated on the banks of the Sheep River and adjacent to Hwy 2a as it passes through the centre of town. Traffic noise is noticeable but not overwhelming and did not cause any problems overnight. Equally, the trains that pass through are on the opposite side of the river but do sound their horns. The staff at reception is pleasant and welcoming and from what I saw, all appear to be seniors. I was advised, without asking, to use a pressure reducer for the water - apparently it is 70+psi. I was also made aware of the town fire ban and outdoor water ban - due to hot, dry weather. They also mentioned there had been a rash of thefts recently and to ensure everything was locked up. Police do patrol through the night and there is a barrier with access code but still accessible to pedestrian or cycle traffic. After paying I was then escorted to my site. This was a long ( 65'+), fairly level, gravel & dirt pull-thru with 30amp, water & sewer. It had a picnic bench and fire pit located on the 15' width of grass between my door side and my neighbor. Sites are fairly close together and there are lots of mature trees for shade. Tengo Wi-Fi is free for 1 hour every 24 and was OK, although it did drop me several times. Additional Wi-FI can be bought. Several OTA TV channels had good signals. Power was stable @ 120v. The bathrooms require a code to access and are small but clean and neatly tiled. Not sure you could get a wheelchair into either of the stalls on the men's side. Showers are pay and looked to cost $1 but for how long I'm not sure. We used our on-board shower so I cannot comment more. No on site laundry or pet walk that I noticed. Overflow parking is available but in a public lot outside the CG. Appears to be mainly transient Rvers but perhaps a handful of seasonals too. Tents are permitted on specific sites. We would revisit.

This is a pretty good location to consider when visiting Calgary. It's a large town with all of the major stores including a Costco, Wal-Mart and Canadian Tire. For real British Fish n Chips visit The British Chippy across the river. Best we've had since emigrating. Not cheap but authentic. I'm not sure what else there is to do here as we only came for a change of scenery from our usual weekend haunt and to decompress over the long weekend.

The price indicated was for a back-in FHU with 20, 30 & 50amp power. Pull-through sites are an additional $8. We arrived on a Friday evening without a reservation but there was no problem finding an open site. The office area is nicely situated in the main building adjacent to the indoor pool/hot springs. These look very enticing but I was only there for a night. Sites are a mix of very long back-in and pull-troughs', all of which appear to have a fire pit and picnic table. The sites are gravel and dirt but did not appear very level. They are also at 90 deg to the narrow roads making reversing in or turning in to a pull-through more difficult than it needs to be. Initially I picked site 13 but on getting there I found the trees at the back of the site were too low for my 5er and the utilities on 12 & 13 appeared to be placed on the wrong side as they did on another couple of the back in sites. I then walked back and checked it later so I am convinced this was the case. Instead we backed in to site 3. Some sites have a little shade but most are open. I did talk to the owner who is very pleasant and helpful. At the time he was out spraying the enormous mosquitoes that are very noticeable. They actually forced us to stay indoors they were so bad, even with spray on me. The shower house looks like something dating back to the dark ages. There was a bad odor, stains on the floor and flies/bugs everywhere. On the men's side there was two shower stalls and one toilet. This had no door, only a shower curtain. I ended up by using the handicapped shower/toilet because that had a solid, lockable door. No soap at the hand wash sink, just a roll of kitchen paper to dry your hands. Wi-Fi is available but only at the office. We could pick up a decent number of OTA signals for the TV. We camped at Sleeping Buffalo Hot Springs in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Located on the north side of US2 about 10 miles (16km) west of Saco. Not well sign-posted and if coming from the west the road is just over the brow of a hill. Bring mosquito repellant - lots of it. Not much in the way of grocery shopping, so bring that with you too. Access to the hot springs is approximately $8.50 pp. This is too early to be classed as a resort but in time, once the RV sites are sorted out and the shower house is torn down and replaced, it may be worthy of 'resort' status

Elkhorn Ridge RV Resort & Cabins, Spearfish, South Dakota

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $65.00

The rate indicated is their nightly rate before GS discount and tax. After a long drive all across SD we pulled in to the drive of this resort and found a chalkboard with our name written on, welcoming us to their property - nice touch. This resort is minutes away from I90 and adjacent to US85. The check-in was simple and the guest services receptionist was very pleasant and welcoming. The reception area is huge and also houses a well stocked store and a coffee bar. Initially we were placed in site 52 but that had an issue with low voltage so we moved to 97. The resort was probably less than 1/3 occupied so sites were not a problem. It was also nice that we were not all bunched up together but well spread out across the entire resort. All sites appear to be very level and large (90'+) concrete pads equipped with 20, 30 & 50amp power, water, cable TV (with lots of channels) and three sewer drops. As this is a fairly new resort, trees haven't yet had the time to develop and sites are in full sun. The washrooms are individual rooms equipped with sowers, toilets and a hand washing sink. They even provide those little flushable paper toilet seat covers. The bathrooms I used were always very clean and tidy. The two washroom building also house washers and dryers ($2 each) and double as a severe weather shelter. A mobile RV wash facility is on site. Despite the proximity to the roads traffic noise was very limited. They have a very good sized pool with an equally big patio area. Adult only swimming is 11:30am - 1pm. Wi-Fi is included in the cost of the stay but didn't work very well and was slow. Also needed to log in each time I switched on the laptop, although no password required. We did let staff know of a leaking water supply pipe and within minutes the Maintenance worker was there fixing it. This is a great place and I will certainly return here again.

Just over an hour to Mt. Rushmore or Devils Tower. Old town of Deadwood 10 minutes away. Best priced diesel is at Safeway in Spearfish.

Shipshewana Campground - South Park, Shipshewana, Indiana

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $47.00
Overall Rating:

We arrived at about 6.30pm and without a reservation. I was surprised to find the CG almost full but the very pleasant lady at the reception was able to find us a long enough pull-through for our 40' 5er for a couple of nights. The sites are fairly level gravel & dirt with 30 & 50amp power, water and a sewer drop. Each site has a picnic table and fire pits can be borrowed from the office. The power supply remained steady and caused us no problems. Sites are separated by a small strip of mowed grass but there isn't much in the way of privacy. Two washroom blocks are old but clean and the showers, although we did not use them appeared Ok. There is a laundry in one of the two blocks but again we did not use this. Interior roads are gravel and easy to navigate. There are no trains nearby and very little in the way of traffic noise while we stayed there. Wi-Fi is included in the price and does not require a password although for most of the time it wasn't particularly strong but just enough for emails and browsing. After two nights we left while our RV was being worked on nearby and we then returned for a third night before setting off the following morning. This place is adequate for a two or three night stop and I would consider staying here again if ever we are in the area. We camped at Shipshewana Campground - South Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Good Amish family restaurants in the area. Be very aware of the horse buggies, slow down and give them space.
