Indianapolis KOA, Greenfield, Indiana

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $42.00
Overall Rating:      

One night stay. Close to the interstate so hwy noise but easy on/off. Make reservation in advanve for water/electric. Assigned a wedge shape piece of grass, fairly level. If we had planned to stay 2 nights should have upgraded to one of the "deluxe" spots across the creek. Only one bathhouse - pretty clean. If not for the proximity to I70 would have rated this campground lower as there's not much going on here. Very much a work in progress (pool). We camped at Indianapolis KOA in a Motorhome.

10 miles to Knightstown IN, where most of the movie "Hoosiers" was filmed. If you liked that movie, a real treat to walk onto the court. Still a working gym. Take the mini-tour (donation appreciated), visit the locker room, then grab a ball and take a few jump shots. "Welcome to Indiana basketball." Highly recommended.

Apple Island Resort, South Hero, Vermont

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $57.00
Overall Rating:      

Booked a three night stay the week before they closed for the season to take advantage of their "stay 3 nights/pay for 2" promotion. Still paid $57.00/night to park our Roadtrek in an open field. Water and electric only. Restrooms were immaculate but unheated. No paper towel dispenser. No hot water. Separate individual showers were also spotless and DID have hot water and good pressure. Nice people in the office (they moved our site at our request w/o hassle. But WILDLY overpriced for shoulder season campers. Probably nice in the summertime with facilities (clubhouse, pool, Par 3 course) open but we won't be back. We camped at Apple Island Resort in a Motorhome.

Come to South Hero during the summer, no later than Labor Day. The islands come to a virtual standstill by mid-October. Tips: Apple picking, taking the Lake Champlain ferry to New York State (15 minute ride for just a few bucks), Green Mountain Marathon and Half Marathon (early October). Ran this 30 years ago and it's still going strong. Beautiful course. An event serious runners should not miss.

Schoodic Woods Campground, Winter Harbor, Maine

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

Read a very positive review of this new park in Downeast magazine and booked a one night reservation on line. (Bookings for RV sites this summer are going fast.)We reserved site B-7, which was a pull through and perfect for our 20 foot Roadtrek Versatile. God, easily accessible 30 amp power and water at the site. Gravel base. Picnic table and a fire ring. Some other RV sites had semi-mature white pines to provide some shade; ours had none. Tiny white pine saplings in cardboard planting pots didn't cut it. Cute, though. The check in process was swift, the ranger who processed our reservation was knowledgeable and cheerful. Because of the modest length of our Roadtrek she said we could drive the Schoodic loop road to the ocean point. Larger RVs and those without toads had to take the free shuttle to see the peninsula. (Pets are allowed on the shuttle, we were told.) Restrooms were squeaky clean. No showers or hot water, however. We are Mainers and knew we were visiting during the June black fly season, and those blood-drawing little beasties were out in force. Mosquitos too, of course, at sundown. Do NOT leave any windows open in your camper. Though we were glad to have visited, and were impressed with the cleanliness and level of service from the Ranger staff, once we'd made the loop road drive (two hours), there is nothing else to do. Due to the mosquitos and flies we didn't take advantage of the educational program on offer that evening at the park amphitheater. People around us seemed content to "chill" at their sites. Lots of cyclists on the loop road, so that seemed to be the thing here. Not sure what a family with teenagers would do for an entire week. We camped at Schoodic Woods Campground in a Motorhome.

The tiny (and I mean tiny) harbor side village of Winter Harbor is fifteen minutes drive away. A couple of nice looking restaurants and a great view of the sound, with Mount Desert/Cadillac Mountain off to the right across the water.

Keuka Lake State Park, Keuka Park, New York

Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $29.00
Overall Rating:      

Park has fifty sites with electricity (30 amp only) in three loops. We stayed here in a Roadrek Versatile 190 and the set up met our needs perfectly. Staffer came by at 5pm each afternoon with firewood bundles for sale. A beautiful park - swimming beach, well equipped playground, picnic tables spaced well apart from each other. We stayed mid-week in late September and the park was lightly occupied. A great experience. We camped at Keuka Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

Jonestown / Hershey NE KOA, Jonestown, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: August, 2014 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

Showers were about the worst we've ever seen in a KOA. None of the three in the men's room worked at all. One of three in the women's bathroom, and it was filthy from overuse. We couldn't wait to get out of there and wouldn't return. We camped at Jonestown / Hershey NE KOA in a Motorhome.

Fort Clinch State Park, Fernandina Beach, Florida

Date of Stay: December, 2013 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

Loved everything about this park. We were assigned a site two over from the water, and the sunset the night we stayed there was spectacular. Nice beach for walking, but no dogs allowed on the sand. The spanish moss and old oaks on the 3 mile drive in from the park entrance really set the stage for our pleasant stay. No cable or internet, but peace, sunshine, and even a dolphin sighting. No wonder this park has been rated Florida's best park two times. We camped at Fort Clinch State Park in a Motorhome.

Lake Park Campground, Lake Park, Georgia

Date of Stay: December, 2013 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

This was an acceptable overnight stop on I-75 southbound to the Jacksonville FL area. It was decent in all respects - efficient reception, escorted to our site, clean bathrooms - the typical KOA deal we are used to. Being so close to the interstate, you make the devil's bargain: peace and quiet off in the boondocks, or convenient on and off the interstate with the accompanying highway noise: you make the call. We camped at Lake Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Blythe Island Regional Park Campground, Brunswick, Georgia

Date of Stay: December, 2013 - $36.00
Overall Rating:      

First rate park in all areas. A few miles from I-95 but minimal highway noise. All sites include WIFI, water, electric and sewer. Cheerful, efficient reception. Spaces are wide and shaded, and the bath houses were clean and spacious. There are wide, flat walking trails that lead into the old oaks draped with spanish moss. The park is a 20 minute drive to Jekyll Island, a first rate destination for cycling. Thanks to other reviewers for touting this park. Great find! We camped at Blythe Island Regional Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Moosehead Family Campground, Greenville, Maine

Date of Stay: September, 2013 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

Clean, well-maintained campground and super-friendly owners (husband and wife), who clearly have made a commitment to keeping up the grounds and facilities. Internet was down when we stayed, but that was a cable company issue, not theirs. The campground is relatively small with no views to speak of, but it was quiet (half full the Monday after Labor Day). The property seems to have been an apple orchard at one time. Lots of fallen fruit and probably, on a warm day, lots of drunken wasps, yellowjackets and other sting-y bugs. Bathrooms are rustic: unheated, vault toilets, and clean but dated shower stalls. We planned to stay two nights but decided to move on after one. We camped at Moosehead Family Campground in a Motorhome.

Passaconaway Campground - White Mountain National Forest, Conway, New Hampshire

Date of Stay: June, 2012 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

Campground is in the forest immediately adjacent to the Kangamagus Highway. Most if not all are back-in only and the "driveways" are pretty narrow. Campground itself was quite spacious however, with a picnic table and fire grate as the amenities. Couldn't enjoy these due to the clouds of mosquitos on a warm, rainy day. No showers or flush toilets, just a couple of outhouses (which we didn't use) and potable water spigots on the loop road in the camp. For these "higher end" amenities, RVers on the Kangamagus need to stay at the Jigger Johnson Campground ten minutes down the road. All in all, we got our twenty dollars worth for a night's dry camping amid the tall pines. Doubt that we'll be back. We camped at Passaconaway Campground - White Mountain National Forest in a Motorhome.

Moose River Campground, St Johnsbury, Vermont

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

We had a beautiful back in spot (#14) on the Connecticut River side of the campground and the sound of the water served as a great background for sleeping. Campsites are spacious and plenty wide enough apart from each other. The campground was only about 25% occupied (including half a dozen long-termers) but even at capacity at the peak of summer you would not feel jumbled together. Rest rooms are clean, dated, and small (two sinks, two showers). Cable and Wi-Fi worked well. The campground is well situated for RVers who are exploring the White Mountains or traveling to or from Canada. Glad we stayed here, and we would return. We camped at Moose River Campground in a Motorhome.

Jonestown / Hershey NE KOA, Jonestown, Pennsylvania

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

Made an online reservation that was waiting for us (space was pre-assigned) on arrival. Park seemed to be on winter hours - Office only open for an hour in the morning and an hour in the afternoon. The park is fairly convenient to the I78 and 81 interstates but far enough away so no highway noise. The way in from the west takes you through a new home development that was wide open farmland a year or or two ago. Too bad watching the countryside being eaten up. There are no grocery stores within miles, so you'll want to bring in all necessary supplies. Frequent travelers who like to raise a glass at the end of the day will want to know that Pennsylvania does not allow the sale of beer, wine, or spirits in grocery stores. Got to go to a state ABC store. Overall the park was quiet, rest rooms no more than adequate, and the Wi-Fi spotty and slow. Doubt we will return. We camped at Jonestown / Hershey NE KOA in a Motorhome.

Frog City RV Park, Duson, Louisiana

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

This was a great stop for an overnight stay on I-10 in central Louisiana. We called ahead to inquire about a spot but did not reserve with a credit card. Nevertheless, when we pulled in at 6 PM the park host had our paperwork filled out and assigned us a spot close to the restrooms, which we prefer. There were no more than half dozen open spots at this park, which was mostly occupied by long termers and workers (something about a pipeline project in the area). The Wi-Fi was super-fast and reliable and the shower/bathrooms were individual rooms, toasty warm on a cool day and spotlessly clean. The park has an excellent dog walking area. We learned that the new managers (husband and wife) have been at the park for only two weeks and have plans to make a number of improvements to what we felt was already a pretty nice stop. $36 with the Good Sam discount. We would return if in the area. We camped at Frog City RV Park in a Motorhome.

Davis Mountains State Park, Fort Davis, Texas

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

This was a challenging park to evaluate. Made online reservations for two nights. In the end this cost $28 per night: $20 for the car for two nights, and $4 per occupant (2 in our case) per night. Rangers at the park office were efficient and helpful. The area is great for hiking and mountain biking for the technical rider. Skyline Drive is the place to be for sunsets and stargazing on clear nights. It's open until 10pm nightly. Javalenas and Mule Deer abound. A herd of Javalinas meandered about the park, quite willing to share it with humans. Park staff was working on the main camp restroom propane tank while we were there, so no heat or hot water for our two day stay. Restrooms are small (two showers, two sinks) and basic. McDonald Observatory is 11 miles up the road. Their evening star program was wonderful. The town of Fort Davis is 3 miles down the road and worth a stop. We would return. We camped at Davis Mountains State Park in a Motorhome.

Van Horn RV Park (formerly Van Horn KOA), Van Horn, Texas

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

Driving east on I-10 in West Texas there aren't a lot of options once you leave El Paso, and we found those unappealing. We had enough daylight left to push on to Van Horn, and were surprised and pleased with what we found at the Van Horn KOA. Hosts were pleasant and accommodating. They serve a decent dinner on site with beer and a local wine (St. Genevieve) on offer. WI-FI signal was consistently strong (and free, as was the cable TV). Restrooms were dated but clean. Fenced pet area was a welcome addition. We wound up spending an extra night to wait out some severe weather that passed through towards the east. In all, we were not disappointed with this KOA. and would stay here again as an overnight option for the I-10 drive. We camped at Van Horn RV Park (formerly Van Horn KOA) in a Motorhome.
