Americamps RV Resort, Ashland, Virginia

Date of Stay: November, 2012 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

First the good stuff. This park is convenient to I-95 just north of Richmond. It is well laid out, sites are reasonably level and roomy. Many tall trees provide shade, but do not reach RV roofs. Bath houses are modern and spotless. Roadways and sites are gravel, there are picnic tables and fire rings at each. Cable TV is very good, electrical service and water connections are also top notch. We didn't use the park's Wi-Fi, so I have no comment on that. There isn't a lot of bad stuff, but here it is: Closeness to I-95 does make for consistent road noise. Many of the sewer connections are high and may be higher than some RV sewer drains. Since water has a problem running up hill, this may require the time consuming job of frequently lifting the hose to empty it. Primarily due to the location, we've stayed here before and will most likely stay here again. We camped at Americamps RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Wilmington KOA, Wilmington, North Carolina

Date of Stay: October, 2012 - $47.00
Overall Rating:

This is a well-run KOA with mostly level sand/gravel sites and interior roads. Sites are of decent size, the cable TV is very good, and Wi-Fi is Tengo, so there is a fee. This is our 4th visit here, and the only negative is the relatively high camping fees, which are typical for KOA. We were there during Hurricane Sandy and the campground suffered no damage except for a few potholes on the roadways which were graded out the next day. Restrooms and showers are modern and spotless, and there is a diesel/gas station and an RV-sized car wash right outside the gate. We camped at Wilmington KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Tanglewood Park Campground, Clemmons, North Carolina

Date of Stay: October, 2012 - $31.00
Overall Rating:

This is a lovely little campground in an 1100 acre county park that was once the estate of a member of the Reynolds tobacco family. Interior roads and sites are all paved and sites are all full-hookup. There is lots of space between sites, the trees are high and not obstructive. Some sites are not level, but when making reservations you can select a level or non-level site. Restrooms are rustic but spotless. Recreational activities within the campground are limited, but the park offers two 18-hole golf courses, two lakes, a tennis center, horseback riding, a playground, a pool, and many other things to do. There is no campground store, but there is a supermarket just down the road. The park is located off I-40, 10 minutes from Winston-Salem. There is no traffic noise to speak of. This is one of those campgrounds we wish we could find everywhere we travel with our RV. We camped at Tanglewood Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Asheville's Bear Creek RV Park & Campground, Asheville, North Carolina

Date of Stay: October, 2012 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

Sites are stuck into this complex campground wherever they marginally fit, some at very strange angles. The sites in the "pull-through" area exit directly onto the public road, making security a potential issue. The sites are concrete and level, but in the pull-through area the grass strip separating the sites is barely 6 feet wide, and between some there are trees to maneuver around. Some of these sites, however, are long enough to accommodate the longest rig combinations. The park is located above the interstate, so the hum of highway noise is a constant. On the plus side: the restrooms are spotless and the park is convenient to Biltmore and downtown Asheville. I wouldn't rule out staying here again, but I would definitely first look for something better. We camped at Asheville's Bear Creek RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

King's Holly Haven RV Park, Pigeon Forge, Tennessee

Date of Stay: October, 2012 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

Typicsl of parks in urban or busy tourist areas this park has somewhat narrow roadways and minimal space between sites. We had a pull-through with a tree tight against the left side of the site. In order for our living room slide to be clear of the tree, we needed to park towards the front of the site, which was too far for our 40 ft. of sewer hose to reach the sewer inlet. Since we were staying just a few days, we were able to back up to the sewer and dump our tanks before we left. The park is well-maintained, sites reasonably level, although backing into some of the spaces looked like it would be a challenge. The restrooms and showers are modern and spotless. The park is about one mile off the main drag of Pigeon Forge, which makes it convenient to the tourist attractions, but far enough away to be quiet. We camped at King's Holly Haven RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Fort Chiswell RV Park, Max Meadows, Virginia

Date of Stay: October, 2012 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

This is a very popular campground for RVers heading south. We were here 4 days and every afternoon rigs were coming in. Very convenient to I-77 and I-81, but far enough off the highway for a quiet night's rest. The restrooms and showers are modern and spotless. The cable TV is fine, and the Wi-Fi is okay most of the time. Sites are gravel and reasonably level, with enough space between sites. A majority of sites seem to be pull-throughs. No issue here with seasonal campers, at least in mid-October. Staff was friendly, but no escort to sites, but I didn't think an escort was needed. Overall, this is one of the best campgrounds among the hundreds we've stayed in. We camped at Fort Chiswell RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Candy Hill Campground, Winchester, Virginia

Date of Stay: October, 2012 - $44.00
Overall Rating:

This is a older, but well-maintained campground. Most sites are gravel, and although there are large trees among the sites, the low branches seemed to be well-trimmed and didn't present a problem. There are just a few pull-through sites, and some of the back ins are a bit tight, but knowledgeable staff was on hand to assist. Sites are reasonably level. Interior roadways are well-paved and signage to the campground is quite adequate. We were here in off-season, although the campground seemed quite busy. The entrance area is a bit narrow, so I can see how it could get backed up during high season. Some sites have hookups on the off-side of the rig. Our sewer was on the left. The water, power, and cable were on the right. But this wasn't a big issue in hooking up. The rates are a bit high, but I've paid more for less. We camped at Candy Hill Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Northampton / Springfield KOA, Westhampton, Massachusetts

Date of Stay: August, 2012 - $37.00
Overall Rating:

After reading the previous two reviews I needed to check to make sure I stayed at the same campground. Although the pull-through sites are a bit narrow, I've certainly seen narrower. The back in sites seemed roomy and many are in decent shade. The park is well-maintained, the staff is friendly and accommodating. There are all sorts of scheduled activities for kids, including rides on a fire engine and a tractor-pulled wagon. Yes, the campground is in a rural area -- it is, after all, a campground. Using Springfield in the name is a bit of a stretch, but it is 20 minutes from the center of Northampton. Signs leading to the park from every direction are plentiful, and anyone following the directions provided on the reservation confirmation shouldn't have any issues getting to the park. Wi-Fi worked well, and the cable TV is adequate. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Northampton / Springfield KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Family and Friends Campground, Standish, Maine

Date of Stay: July, 2012 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

If you are looking for an "RV Resort" look elsewhere. If you are looking for a rustic campground in the woods, read on. The interior roads are steep, unpaved, tight, and very rough. The trees are trimmed back enough to permit big rigs access with no roof damage. And some sites look like they will accommodate big rigs without too much hassle. Other sites however, will make entry and exit a serious challenge. On the plus side, the Wi-Fi works well and the cable TV is terrific. The trees make for good privacy on most sites. I don't think satellite dishes will work well with all of the trees. There are a fair number of seasonal campers here, but that's really not an issue. We stayed here during the week and the nights were quiet. We camped at Family and Friends Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Timberland Acres RV Park, Trenton, Maine

Date of Stay: July, 2012 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

This is a long, narrow campground with a mix of campsites. We were in a pull-through in a mostly transient area, and the one bath house was about half a mile from the site, and if I'm exaggerating it isn't by much. There are quite a few seasonal folks here, mostly in the wooded, back-in sites, and some of those sites seem to be available for transients. The grounds are well-maintained, the bath house was clean and large enough to handle the number of campers. Wi-Fi worked well, but off-air TV reception is very limited. Location is convenient to both Ellsworth for shopping and the usual services, and Bar Harbor/ Acadia National Park. The $45 rate shown doesn't include the Good Sam discount, but this is one of the more reasonably-priced campgrounds in the popular Bar Harbor area. We camped at Timberland Acres RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Rockwood Park, Saint John, New Brunswick

Date of Stay: July, 2012 - $34.00
Overall Rating:

This is a nice campground in a Saint John Municipal park located 5 minutes from the center of town. Sites are gravel/grass, fairly level, and reasonably roomy. Although there is no pool, there is a swimming beach on the nearby lake. WiFi was weak from our site (#38). The roadways coming into to the park from the Trans Canada Highway and the city are through a residential neighborhood and quite hilly. The signs showing the route are small and may be hard to spot. There is a restaurant in Rockwood Park, a short hike from the campground. There is an attendant or security guard at the campground gate 24/7. This is a good location for exploring Saint John and the Bay of Fundy area. We camped at Rockwood Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Annapolis River Campground (55+ park), Bridgetown, Nova Scotia

Date of Stay: July, 2012 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

This is very nice campgroound along a narrow portion of the Annapolis River. Sites are grass and reasonably level. I checked "no" on "Family friendly park" because the owner considers this park a seniors camp, although there appear to be no formal age restrictions. About half the sites are taken with seasonal campers, but we found them to be quite friendly. There's a nominal fee for wifi, which worked very well and a fee for cable TV, which was a pleasant surprise for campgrounds in the maritimes, where off-air antennas generally get just one or two channels. The cable here is full-service, including digital channels from the US. Restrooms are rustic but clean. Most transient sites are in an open area, but we were able to get a river front site, in the shade, for our 3 day stay. The owner is quite helpful and accommodating, but be warned, credit or debit cards are not accepted as payment. We camped at Annapolis River Campground (55+ park) in a Fifth Wheel.

Wayside Campground, Glen Margaret, Nova Scotia

Date of Stay: July, 2012 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

This is a mostly rustic campground that has been in business under the same family management for 50 years. The 5 pull-through sites closest to the road are in an open area, but there are many nice sites back in the woods. The traffic noise in the front sites isn't too bad at night. The restrooms are rustic but clean, and there is a fee for using the shower ($1 for 10 minutes). The staff is friendly and helpful, and the location is terrific, about 10 minutes from Peggy's Cove and about 40 minutes from Halifax. There are several wi-fi repeaters, and the wi-fi was decent at our site. TV reception on the antenna was very poor. The owner told me that there are about 40 seasonal campers among the 150 sites, so that didn't seem to be an issue. We camped at Wayside Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Nimrod's Campground, Sherbrooke, Nova Scotia

Date of Stay: July, 2012 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

This is a rustic campground operated by a local hunting and fishing club. Several end-to-end sites are right on the lake (our rig is parked 15 feet from the water). Sites are grass, some are in shaded areas, most seem reasonably level. Previous listings show some 50 amp service but the current campground map has 50 crossed out and replaced with 30. Washrooms and showers are rustic, but clean. Lots of water activities are available including swimming and canoe rentals. The park is 5 minutes from Sherbrooke, a small town with two service stations with diesel pumps and a small supermarket. The lakefront site we're in is very nice and we would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Nimrod's Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Triple Falls RV Park, St Anthony, Newfoundland

Date of Stay: July, 2012 - $27.00
Overall Rating:

This campground is convenient to St. Anthony and the nearby attractions. The best sites are occupied by seasonal campers, but the transient sites aren't bad. We're in a grass site that is reasonably wide and long enough to accommodate our 32 foot RV and the tow vehicle. The sites seem reasonably level. Wi-Fi was awful, and our site is 50 feet from the office. Antenna TV signal is poor. Our cell phone shows no service here, but I don't know if that's provider specific (we use Verizon). Restrooms are clean and modern. We would camp here again if in the area. We camped at Triple Falls RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
