Gros Morne RV Campground, Rocky Harbour, Newfoundland

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

The areas of this park suitable for big rigs is a gravel parking lot with hookups. Other, mostly unserviced sites, are in attractive, shady spots that appear to be very nice. The restrooms are modern and clean, the staff friendly and helpful. The location is terrific for exploring the Gros Morne National Park. The Wi-Fi at our site was not accessible, but it was very strong a short walk away in a covered pavilion. Grocery supplies in Rocky Harbour are limited, so if you plan to stay a while, be sure to stock up before you get here. We camped at Gros Morne RV Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Grand Codroy RV-tent Camping Park, Doyles, Newfoundland

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

This is a very nicely laid-out campground in a rural area. Sites are roomy and separated from neighboring sites in a way that assures privacy. Very convenient to the Nova Scotia ferry so its a good spot to stay upon arrival on the island since the ferry gets in late in the afternoon. The owners and staff are Newfoundlanders -- extremely warm, friendly and helpful. Wifi is among the best campground wifi we've experienced. Restrooms are clean and well cared-for. The park is nestled in the Cordroy Valley which is a very pretty setting of mountains and rivers. Antenna TV reception is quite limited. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Grand Codroy RV-tent Camping Park in a Fifth Wheel.

North Sydney / Cabot Trail KOA, New Harris, Nova Scotia

Date of Stay: June, 2012 - $49.00
Overall Rating:

This is a nice campground on a terraced mountainside with a great view of northern Lake Bras D'Or and the Seal Island Bridge. The Wi-Fi at our site was very strong and off air TV provided 3 stations. Sites are wide and reasonably level. Bathouses are clean and modern. The firewood sold at the campground is a big bunch, complete with kindling and paper. The daily rate of $49 doesn't reflect the KOA member discount, but (in my opinion) is quite steep, especially early in the season. The location is convenient to the Cabot Trail and not too far from Baddeck. Decent grocery shopping is in North Sidney, about 12 miles away, which is also where the Noufoundland ferry terminal is located. We camped at North Sydney / Cabot Trail KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Seal Cove Campground, Murray Harbor North, Prince Edward Island

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

This is a very nice campground on a picturesque bay. Quite a few grass sites are right on the bay. The new owners are very friendly and helpful. Restrooms are a bit rustic, but quite clean. Wi-Fi is currently available only at the office but they expect to have it at the sites later this season. Sites could be more level than they are, but getting the rig leveled was not a problem. Fresh lobsters are available from the owner who picks them up at the boat. The campground is about 20km from the closest town of any size, which is Montague, where you'll find two supermarkets and other services. All in all, this was a very nice and relaxing place to stay on this wonderful island. We camped at Seal Cove Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Lane's Cottages, Montague, Prince Edward Island

Date of Stay: June, 2012 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

As previous reviewers reported, this is a gem of a little campground. The total number of sites listed (26) is made up mostly of cottages and tent sites. I counted only about a half-dozen RV sites. Although the facility is right in town, it is surprisingly quiet. It sits on a ridge overlooking the town marina, and is convenient to shopping and the local sights. The only negative occurred when checking in. I pulled into the driveway which provides access to the cottages, motel, and RV sites, but getting to the RV sites required driving through a very narrow parking area in front of the motel. Barely enough room to squeeze through. Also, the 2012 season may be the last for this campground. The owner is planning to break ground for a hotel on the property in September, and that will mean closing the campground to make room for a parking lot. We camped at Lane's Cottages in a Fifth Wheel.

Marco Polo Land Campground, Cavendish, Prince Edward Island

Date of Stay: June, 2012 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

Our daily rate reflects our early season stay at Marco Polo Land. The posted summer rate is #41.90. This is a large, well-kept campground which includes a restaurant, an inn, a decent camp store and numerous play areas and family activities. There are both open sites on grassy areas resembling a golf course, and wooded areas as well. Our open campsite was exactly level, and wide and deep enough to easily back into. Even though it has rained for our entire stay, the site never got muddy. Marco Polo is about a mile from the Green Gables House of the 1908 novel, and just a bit farther from the beach. There is an adequate number of bath houses scattered throughout the park. The only negative is the lack of cable TV and only a handful of channels accessible by antenna. We camped at Marco Polo Land Campground in a Motorhome.

Stonehurst Golf Course & Trailer Park, Moncton, New Brunswick

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

This is a nice, well-maintained campground convenient to Moncton's attractions. Sites are mostly grass, reasonably wide,and reasonably level. The connections for water and power are located at the back, between every two sites which means your connections may be on the off side of your rig. This wasn't a problem for us because our connections are at the rear, but I could see it as a potential problem if your connections are in the center of your rig and your podium is on the other side. The sewer connections are located where you would expect to find them.The restrooms are spotless, and the shower stalls are surprisingly spacious, but there is only one bathhouse, and when the campground gets full, you may have to wait. We camped at Stonehurst Golf Course & Trailer Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Kiwanis Oceanfront Camping, St. Andrews, New Brunswick

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

This is a terrific campground bordered on two sides by Passamaquoddy Bay which is part of the Bay of Fundy. The level sites are gravel, and it appears that lots of new gravel has recently been added. The bath house is modern and spotless. There is no cable TV, but we received 9 stations (including digital) on our rig's antenna. The Wi-Fi is among the best campground Wi-Fi we've experienced anywhere. The only negative is that the sewer connections are close to the neighboring site's picnic table which wasn't a problem for us because we were here early in the season and we had no near neighbors. We camped at Kiwanis Oceanfront Camping in a Fifth Wheel.

Mt Desert Narrows Camping Resort, Bar Harbor, Maine

Date of Stay: May, 2012 - $46.00
Overall Rating:

Mt. Desert Narrows is operated by a group which runs two other campgrounds in the area. I'll give them the benefit of the doubt, since we visited very early in the season, but the grass needed mowing, many of the sites weren't ready, and the lower bath house was boarded up. The waterfront sites do not have sewer connections, and there are a limited number of sites with 50amp power. The sites are grass/dirt/a little gravel, and some appeared to be not very level. Our site, 150, had giant tire ruts, but they were far enough away from where I parked to not cause a problem. The sites are big enough to handle most any size rig. The one open bath house was clean, although the showers were quite rustic. The park is convenient to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park, and guests are provided with a comprehensive packet of local guides, maps, and information. We camped at Mt Desert Narrows Camping Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Wild Duck Campground & RV Park (Adult Only), Scarborough, Maine

Date of Stay: May, 2012 - $42.00
Overall Rating:

This was our second visit to Wild Duck and the only reason I rate it 9 and not 10 is that some of the premium back-in spaces are a bit difficult to get into with a 32 ft. 5th wheel. Other than that, the place is great. It is well-maintained, quiet, mainly because kids aren't permitted. It is bordered by a very scenic marsh, and not too far from grocery shopping, restaurants, Cabela's and other facilties. The gravel sites are reasonably level, and raked after every departure.If you use a Magellen/Good Sam GPS, be forwarned, the directions to Wild Duck linked to the Good Sam POIs are very wrong. If you manually enter the address it will get you right there. We camped at Wild Duck Campground & RV Park (Adult Only) in a Fifth Wheel.

Bay View Campground, Bourne, Massachusetts

Date of Stay: May, 2012 - $49.00
Overall Rating:

We camped here off season, during the week, and the campground was sparsely populated. The staff was friendly and helpful, the gravel/dirt sites seem quite roomy. Some of the features of the place were not open, which made the nightly fee a bit steep. There are quite a few seasonal campers here, and some of the available spaces seemed to be not very level. Our site ran downhill, but leveling our rig wasn't a problem. Oh, don't let the name fool you, there isn't a bay anywhere in view. The location on the western end of Cape Cod is convenient to several of the popular tourist attractions on the cape. Overall, I'd say this is a decent campground, but I don't know how it would be at peak season. We camped at Bay View Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Knoebels Amusement Resort, Elysburg, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: August, 2011 - $41.00
Overall Rating:

This large campground is adjacent to Knoebels Amusement Park, which is a family-friendly old style amusement park, with no admission charge, and reasonable prices for rides and food. The campground has electric hookups only, but there are several water fill spots at the entrance, and a few dump stations on the property. The campground is wooded, some sites may present leveling issues, and the trees may present issues for larger rigs. There is frequent shuttle service to the amusement park, although it isn't too far to walk. Restrooms are rustic, but adequate. Reservations are a must, especially on weekends. The fee is high, considering minimum hookups, no cable and no antenna access, but how many campgrounds provide a really cool amusement park on the premises? We camped at Knoebels Amusement Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

South Bend / Elkhart North KOA, Granger, Indiana

Date of Stay: August, 2011 - $48.00
Overall Rating:

I guess there is truth to the old adage that you can please some of the people some of the time but not all of the people all of the time. I don't get reviewers complaints about the size of the sites. We have a 32 ft fifth wheel. This was our second time in this KOA. Yes there are trees. Trees make shade, and provide a woodsy atmosphere. Since there are trees you need to be a bit careful driving through, but the sites are certainly bigger than some I've been in. There was also room to park the truck. My only complaint is the nearby RxR and the sound of the trains. This is a lovely, well-run KOA, with sparkling clean restrooms, and helpful, friendly management. Yes, there are lots of KOA's with no trees at all. Given a choice, I'll always go for the trees. We camped at South Bend / Elkhart North KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Willoaks Campground, Woodstock, Illinois

Date of Stay: August, 2011 - $33.00
Overall Rating:

This is a funky little campground set well off the road on a family farm. The pull through sites look like back in sites at first glance, but the idea is to pull in and face a large lawn area which is used to pull out. Staff is very friendly, the park is quiet, with a fair proportion of seasonal campers. There is a swimming/fishing pond, table and fire ring at each site, and decent room between sites. Wi-Fi works well, but there is a $2 daily fee for Wi-Fi. The park is close enough to Chicago for antenna TV reception. Some of the overnight sites may require a bit of work to level your rig, but I've seen worse. We would stay here again. We camped at Willoaks Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Prairie Flower Recreation Area COE, Johnston, Iowa

Date of Stay: August, 2011 - $16.00
Overall Rating:

I'm not a big fan of the Corps of Engineers, but this park is something they've done right. Spacious, level, concrete pads, paved interior roads, lots of space between sites, and enough trees for shade but not so many they get in the way. Electrical service only, but water faucets are scattered throughout. There's an easily accessible dump station. Good antenna TV reception from Des Moines. The rate we paid was due to the Senior Pass. We camped at Prairie Flower Recreation Area COE in a Fifth Wheel.
