French Lick Springs Hotel, French Lick, Indiana

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $60.00
Overall Rating:      

French Lick and West Baden are wonderful historic hotels with beautiful grounds. However the RV Park is not in sync with the rest of the property. For $60 a night I expected a lot more. The camping area is a back row of an outer parking lot with no landscaping and no privacy. Twelve lines are painted on the pavement which were supposed to designate the dozen RV sites advertised. But if 12 rigs parked here you wouldn't be able to put your slides out, the sites are that close. So French Lick gives you two sites when you register, which means there's really only 6 RV spots with hook-ups. Services are located in the rear, too far for our sewer hose to reach. Behind the service poles are a couple of bench swings under small pergolas with a community fire pit between, which was the only nice touch in the whole camping area. A historic train runs alongside the RV park and blows its whistle at the nearby crossing. Shuttle busses will stop at the RV Park for transport to both hotels and the casino. Walking from the RV Park to the casino is not far, but there's no dedicated sidewalks and the shortest route takes you around a rear loading dock which was a bit unsettling at night. We've been to French Lick many times and always stayed at the wonderful hotels. This was our first time in the RV Park, and I was surprised at the scant amenities and lack of thought put into the camping area. For the hefty fee that's charged, there's much room for improvement. We camped at French Lick Springs Hotel in a Motorhome.

Miami County Fairgrounds, Troy, Ohio

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

We camp here every year to attend the Southern Ohio Forge & Anvil (SOFA) Blacksmith convention. This is a large county fairground with an active horse training facility and trotter track. It's a historic property and fairly well maintained. Camping with electric-only service is offered in the front and back fields. The front area has some road noise, the back section is quieter. Both areas are big rig accessible. A few paved sites with shared water connections are also adjacent to the grandstand, but those spots are not offered through the SOFA conference. Camping during SOFA is quite crowded. Shared electric service for 4 sites is provided on poles placed throughout open grassy areas, so everybody crams around the poles and you're right on top of each other. Tent campers also take up precious electric sites making the front area a real jumble, even though there's plenty of other fields to set up a tent. If you need electric service, there's more room to spread out in the back section than in the front. For a big gathering like SOFA, we're glad to have camping provided, even if it's a tight squeeze. And plan to come early if you want an electric site at SOFA-most spots are filled by noon on Friday! We camped at Miami County Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

Buckeye Lake / Columbus East KOA, Buckeye Lake, Ohio

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $58.00
Overall Rating:      

Very good KOA located adjecent to Buckeye Lake. No view of the lake, but access is a short distance away. The campground is laid out in a square, with seasonal campers and rental cabins on the perimeter. In the center are the short-term campsites, all long and level pull-thrus with FHU. Interior roads are wide gravel boulevards among mature trees, so all sites have full shade. Amenities include pool, bounce pad, small mini-golf, picnic pavilions, and dog park. Easy to find with good signage. A restful overnite stop. We camped at Buckeye Lake / Columbus East KOA in a Motorhome.

Erie KOA, Mckean, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $58.00
Overall Rating:      

Excellent property! Super clean, well maintained and mowed, good gravel roads and level sites. CG is laid out in a ring around a nice size pond. Lots of folk were "fishing" with kiddie poles. Paddle boat and bike rentals are available, and Pygmy goats are in a pen for your amusement. Three huge teepees are available for rent, along with cabins of various sizes. A small dog run is located behind the far bath house. Heated pool and playground are in the center. Pretty landscaping and flower beds throughout, although not between all the sites so privacy is site dependent. Far enough from the highway so there's no traffic noise, but easy to reach from I-79. We were very pleased with Erie KOA as an overnight stop! We camped at Erie KOA in a Motorhome.

Cayuga Lake State Park, Seneca Falls, New York

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $28.00
Overall Rating:      

A bare bones campground. The electric side has only 30 or so sites, some without water, and many taken up by tent campers. Campground roads are tight and sites are small. If you have a rig much bigger than 30' you'll have trouble stuffing yourself in here. The East/electric side backs up to a busy county road - lots of traffic noise. The big plus is the direct lake access, just a short walk from the East loop. Nice swimming beach at the lake with a lifeguard and big bath house. We used Cayuga Lake State Park as an overnight stop, and there are probably better choices in the area. We camped at Cayuga Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

Iroquois Land Family Camping, North Clarendon, Vermont

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

A small park with open field sites. Lovely setting with the Green Mountains in the background. Quiet and dark at night, good view of the stars. Limited shade, but some late afternoon shadows come around. All sites are on the grass and the surrounding meadow has mowed paths for a nice walk. Plenty of room for tow vehicles, but sites are a bit close together so privacy is limited. FHU are available, and a small pool is on property. Overall, this is a bare bones CG, but it's a pleasant country setting and very close to Rutland. We camped at Iroquois Land Family Camping in a Motorhome.

King Phillip's Campground, Lake George, New York

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

King Phillips is a large campground with many camping loops. Some loops are shady, some are in deep woods on a hill, others are in open fields. Your site is assigned when you check in, although you can request a specific loop. At least half the sites are seasonal campers who return every year. The regulars have elaborate landscaping with lights, patios, and flower gardens, which gives the campground a lovely atmosphere. Short term sites are sprinkled among the seasonal renters. Pool, laundry, and campstore are located in the front of the property, a short walk from any loop. Bath houses and playgrounds are close to every loop. Trolley service to Lake George Village is across the street and reliable. This was our second visit to King Phillips, and we like how close the CG is to shopping and downtown. King Phillips is typical of other lake resorts in NY, where seasonal campers enhance their sites and form strong communities. We always feel welcome here, and locals are friendly and happy to give you site seeing tips. We enjoyed our stay and would return again. We camped at King Phillip's Campground in a Motorhome.

Jonestown / Hershey NE KOA, Jonestown, Pennsylvania

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

Wow, this KOA has everything! Ice cream shop, bike rental, bounce pad, splash park, and many other diversions. We had a creekside site that was nicely shaded. Sites are close, but we didn't feel crowded. Used as an overnight stop, and was easy access from I-81. Good gravel roads and level sites with FHU, free wifi, cable. The ice cream shop was excellent, and folks gathered on the veranda in the evening to socialize. Very good stop-over spot! We camped at Jonestown / Hershey NE KOA in a Motorhome.

Flatwoods KOA, Sutton, West Virginia

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

Note that you must stop at Days Inn Hotel to register, there is no office on the campground property. Arrived here, gratefully, after a long day's drive in a downpour. Clerks at the hotel check-in were speedy and friendly, and had our reservation papers ready. Fastest check-in I've ever had! The hotel & campground are high on a bluff above Flatwoods and Interstate 79, so the property doesn't have too much ambient highway noise. Sites are located in several loops surrounded by deep woods. We saw a family of deer ambling around. Most sites are pull-throughs, although you do have to wind around the property on narrow roads to get to your site. While spread out, this KOA only has 50 sites, so reservations are probably a good idea. Campers are invited to use the pool and fitness facilities at the Days Inn, and the campground also hosts an amphitheater and large meeting hall for rent. Really liked this KOA for an overnight stop. We camped at Flatwoods KOA in a Motorhome.

Dog Creek COE, Cub Run, Kentucky

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $22.00
Overall Rating:      

Dog Creek is our go-to spot for lake camping, and we return every year. It's a smaller campground, less crowded than others on Nolin Lake, and has direct access to the water from many sites. We like the privacy and seclusion of Dog Creek, but our city friends got a bit bored. The only activity offered is the lake, and we spent 3 afternoons floating in the cove at the beach, which wasn't enough to keep their (overactive) grandson entertained. Next time we return to Dog Creek we'll bring the right kind of company who know how to kick back and chill at a campground way out in the country. We camped at Dog Creek COE in a Motorhome.

Canal COE, Grand Rivers, Kentucky

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $26.00
Overall Rating:      

Really enjoyed Canal Campground! There are seven loops to chose from, and I'd recommend Woods or Beach Loop for shady and spacious sites. Both have a view of the cove where the swimming beach is located. Browns Point Loop is on a bluff with an expansive view of the water and offers shade as well. For really big rigs or chicken drivers, try Canal View Loop which has wider roads and pull-thrus. No shade in the Canal View Loop, but the lake view is excellent. We found the property to be clean, mowed, and well maintained. Yes, the interior loop roads are narrow and hilly, but you can handle it. Just go slow and take your time backing in. Yes, other folks make fires and ride around in golf carts. Get over it. That's what people do in campgrounds. This COE campground is a lovely setting and worth staying for a few nights, despite what some reviewers have groused about. Perfect for boaters as there's a large launch area, too. We camped at Canal COE in a Motorhome.

Fort Massac State Park, Metropolis, Illinois

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

Fort Massac was Illinois' first state park (1908). Located on the Ohio River, less than a mile from downtown Metropolis, it's a lovely setting of mature trees and rolling grass. The campground has two loops for RVs and a dedicated tent camping area. RV sites are very spacious, with level gravel pads and shade throughout. The fort and visitor center is a short walk from the campground. We didn't see a check-in station but our site was already marked with our reservation card, and a campground host is on the property. We used Fort Massac as an overnight stop to tour Paducah, and had a lovely afternoon walking around the park and nearby Metropolis. We'll mark this campground as a favorite! We camped at Fort Massac State Park in a Motorhome.

Meriwether Lewis, Hohenwald, Tennessee

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $1.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a free National Park Service campground. Reservations are not accepted and sites fill up in mid-afternoon, so plan accordingly. Deeply wooded campground with pretty good spacing between sites. Many are pull thrus, and we had no trouble fitting into a back-in site. North of Merriweather the Natchez Trace Parkway is under construction. There's a 20 mile detour on some narrow back country roads that I'd rather not repeat. We heard this detour has been up for a couple of years already, so there's no telling when construction will be completed. We'd like to return to Merriweather campground, it was a pleasant place to overnight, but I'll be finding another route here to avoid that nasty detour. We camped at Meriwether Lewis in a Motorhome.

Tishomingo State Park, Tishomingo, Mississippi

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $19.00
Overall Rating:      

Tishomingo is a big state park with historic sites, group meeting areas, and picnic spots. The campground is centered around a small lake and nearly every site has a lake view. Very spacious sites in a wooded setting. Quiet and dark in the evenings. Located right on the Natchez Trace Parkway. We were surprised at the low camping fee and how big the park is. Their main feature is the Swinging Bridge at the very back of the park and it's worth the drive, but take your tow vehicle there because the interior roads are a bit winding and narrow and parking at the bridge is in a dirt lot. This is a great overnight spot if you're traveling the Natchez Trace. We camped at Tishomingo State Park in a Motorhome.

McFarland Park Campground, Florence, Alabama

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

Wow - what a great place! We weren't expecting much out of a county park, but McFarland was wonderful. It would qualify as a state park anywhere else. Right on the Tennessee River with acres of open fields and shady picnic spots. A marina, restaurant, and visitor center are on the property. FHU were available under mature pine trees with deep shade. Other sites were out in the open with full sun. The river looks too fast and deep for swimming, but it's a fabulous view. Historic downtown is only a few blocks away on the bluffs with lots of restaurant choices and lively in the evenings. Campground is off Route 20 from the Natchez Trace Parkway. In April 2017 the main bridge from Florence to Mussel Shoals (Rt 43) was closed to RVs due to construction. The detours confused us, and turned out not to be nessesary - McFarland Park is right before the bridge heading east on Rt 20, so no need to detour. Quiet and safe to walk around at night, campground is gated at dark. They didn't have a working credit card machine the week we were there, so you might want to come prepared with cash. We camped at McFarland Park Campground in a Motorhome.
