This is the second time that we have stayed at RVacation RV Park on our way north. We appreciate the beautiful mature trees that are nicely trimmed giving shade to many of the sites. There is easy access to and from the I-95, and the sites are all pull through. We were escorted to our site by bicycle. Pride of ownership is everywhere. WI-FI is free and with a good signal. This is an excellent overnight campground. I would not recommend it for long stays as there are no planned activities and it is too noisy. There is a constant drone of traffic and the occasional train. My rating is for an overnight campground.

We stayed at "A Big Wheel RV Park" last year for the first time. However we had inspected it a few times before. Each time we came, there had been noticeable improvements from our previous visit. The owners, who are very friendly and knowledgeable of the area, have more plans for the future. All the internal roads are paved and many of the sites are concrete. The drainage is good, and even after a rainy period the campground is not muddy. After having had that problem at other campgrounds, that is a real plus. The Live Oaks make this campground shady, but the sun shines through. The main building in the campground consists of a weather proofed, closed-in-porch ("The Lodge") with bathrooms, a kitchen and a laundry room. We only use bathrooms at campgrounds when they are exceptional, and we use them here all the time. The bathrooms are large and private and very clean. The owner cleans them herself many times a day. Each bathroom has a shower, sink and toilet. WI-FI if free and this year when we returned, we found that it had been upgraded and is of exceptional quality. Many evenings, campers are found in "The Lodge" playing cards or Mexican Trains. Evey Sunday evening, the owners/hosts supply the main course for a campground dinner. Guests provide the side dishes. Special occasions are also celebrated. Crooked River State Campground is right across the road from this campground and we take the opportunity of riding our bikes and walking our dogs in the larger area. Some campers play golf and ride their bikes in the submarine base just down the road. Shopping is also handy. We took all these things into consideration when we decided to make this campground our destination for the winter.
