This is a state campground in the Adirondacks. For those in RV's, this is a primitive campground with no amenities; hence the rating of 7. That said, the campsites are beautiful, in the woods, with most campsites by the lakeside. The campground, which is huge, was sparsely occupied, so we had a we had a choice of sites. We found many that would accommodate our 40-foot-RV. We did need leveling boards to get level, but we were tired and did not try very hard to get level by driving back and forth, etc. We would stay here again when we wish to boondock.

A nice campground out in the woods, with excellent utilities including Wi-Fi and cable TV. Our rate of $21 was the Passport America rate. We had a nice level site, in the open, so we could get satellite reception. The site was a level gravel pad. The only negative was the prevalence of mosquitoes. The campground is on the shore of a lake with facilities for boating, canoeing and kayaking. There is also a playground for children.

This is a rural campground in a very pleasant setting, with nice hosts. We liked the setting of the campground. The sites to which we were assigned were in a grassy area. and we used leveling boards to prevent the levelers of out 40-foot-motorhome from sinking in. We had a fair amount of difficulty leveling, having to move back and forth to find the best spot. If you go to this campground, call ahead to get directions and to avoid a very low overpass. The road in has overhanging trees, that brushed the top of our motorhome, but did no damage. This is a nice campground and we would go to it again.

Location, location, location - that is what gives this park a high rating. The park is easily accessible from the Interstate. Once there, it is a 10-min walk to the subway or ferry to New York City, putting all major attraction an hour or less from the RV park. The park itself is ordinary - 50 RV sites in what is a large parking lot next to a marina. There is good 50 amp service and water available. There is no sewer hookup, so arrive with empty tanks, and plan to use the dump station or their mobile sewer service. Wi-Fi is adequate but slow. so we used our hot spot much of the time.The staff is helpful and explained to us how to reach the places we wished to go using the subway or ferry.

This campground is designed for weekend campers with many weekend activities. However, there is an open space that appears to be somewhat recently added, that works for overnight for travelers.This is quite adequate with drive-in spaces with full-hookups including 50 amps. The sites are fairly level, although we had to work a bit to get leveled. The gate to enter the park is quite narrow, so be sure to watch your mirrors, so you do not lose them. The directions to the park in the PP book are confusing. Exit 23 and go south for about 100 yards and turn right (go west) on old route 22. Also, the campground easily accommodated our 40 foot rig, with the toad attached.

This is a no-frills park with no rest rooms. Water pressure is low as others have mentioned, but nothing that cant be dealt with. Wi-Fi worked fine and was strong enough for us. The park is quiet, and there is little noise from the highway. Our daily rate reflected being a member of the Kosmo Club, which involves a one-time fee of $15, and allows one to stay at the reduced rate for 2 weeks every year. We have stayed here before, and would certainly stay here again, as this is a convenient location for visiting people in Glen Allen.

This is a wonderful National Forest Campground in a little valley deep in the mountains. The campsites are level and well kept up. There is 50 amp electric service, but no water or sewer hookups. Some campsites are in the open, and in these satellite TV is available. There is a nice fireplace and picnic table at each site. There is fishing in the two lakes in the campground, as well as swimming in one of the lakes. The campground is a few miles from any sizable town, so be sure to take enough groceries to last during your stay.

This is an excellent campground, and there were quite a few sites that will accommodate big rigs. We had no problem finding a spot for out 40-foot motor home. One can not reserve specific sites, so if you make reservations, tell them you have a big rig, so they will assign the appropriate site for you. The campsites are heavily wooded, so in most cases satellite TV is not an option. All sites have water and 30 amp electric, with no sewer hookup. This is probably one of the most pleasant campgrounds I have been in.

This is a pleasant park, with level sites. There is a creek running nearby, which is said to contain trout. The sites are easy to get into and out of. There is a cable connection that works well. This park is about a 30 min drive from the west entrance to Smoky Mountain National Park.

This is an OK park for one or two nights, provided Passport America discount is available. Airplane noise is the big negative, although did not seem to be as bad as a couple of years. There are paved sites with utilities conveniently located. We will stay here again, if PP discount is available. This is a good place to stay, if going to Mayo Clinic.

This is a good place to stay for an overnight off I-26. Friendly staff, nice rural location in the trees. We did have to use leveling blocks to level, and trees prevented satellite TV. We would stay in this pleasant campground again.

This is a pleasant park, with a rural atmosphere; it is within a convenient distance from I-95, but has a minimal amount of highway noise. This is a very good place to stay if you wish to commute for appointment to Mayo Clinic -about 50 min by auto. The sites are level, easily accessible and well-spaced between sites. Satellite TV may not be available in all sites, but cable TV is provided. We will stay here again.

This a rural park, located about half way between Atlanta and Birmingham. this is a good place to stay for a night or two, when on the road. The park is in a beautiful area. The sites are level. The hook-ups all work. While everything worked well, the park in general has a run-down appearance. As stated in other reviews, it seems the owner does not have the ability to keep the park in tip-top condition. Still this is a pleasant place to stay. We have been here before, and certainly would stop here again, when on our way to Florida, after visiting Tiffin Motor Homes in Red Bay, AL.

This park is a bit off the main highway, and to get there one has to go down fairly narrow streets through a neighborhood. The park itself is part of a complex, that was once a motel, but has been converted into residents for people over 50. The sites were quite difficult to get into with our 40 foot motorhome. These are older sites with antiquated hookups (water next to sewer outlet, for example). Trees prevented access to satellite TV. There are only 30 amp hookups. The rate of $17.40 is the Passport America rate. Given the inconvenient distance from the highway, the difficulty getting into the site, and the the generally unsatisfactory nature of the site, we would definitely not stay here again.

This park is a way off the highway on a road going off the highway several miles north of Truth or Consequences, and north of Elephant Butte. The road is paved, but there is a short dirt road leading to the RV Park, going about 1/8 of a mile that is rough. Probably due to recent flood damage and is not adequately repaired yet. The sites were very difficult for us to navigate to get our 40-foot RV and toad into. The water hookup worked, but was inconveniently located, and it took some work to keep water hookup from leaking. This is a site in the desert, but has trees in it, making the setting quite beautiful and striking. We would not stay here again just for an over-night --- too far off the road, and to hard to navigate to get parked. On the other hand, this is a beautiful place to go for a few days R&R. Nice setting and is a pretty place to be.
