Shady Pines RV Park, Texarkana, Texas

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $27.00
Overall Rating:      

Nice little park. The sites are all concrete and look level - ours was. Large number of pull-thrus with the utilities situated perfectly. We just did an overnight so we pulled in, hooked up the power and all was good. However, the road noise is NOT insignificant. It seems to quiet down after 11pm but the trucks use their engine braking and the hot-rodders enjoy the sound of their exhaust (I don't). Good place to overnight. Nothing for the kids to do. Staff was very pleasant. We camped at Shady Pines RV Park in a Motorhome.

Quebec City KOA, Saint Nicolas, Quebec

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $48.00
Overall Rating:      

SharonO (below) had a spot on comment "We stayed in this park to take advantage of the Quebec City Tour. The tour bus picked us up at the front of the campground by the Office. Unfortunately our site was located near the back of the campground. It was a very long walk uphill to get to there. It would not have been a problem except I have a bad knee and it made for a hard walk. "

Same issue, same result.

There was a person coming around delivering fire wood to the sites if you wanted any and there was another lady in the afternoon that came around in a mini-van and provided great baked goods. Very, very good idea to allow them access.

Front office staff were very helpful, pleasant and knowledgeable.

The site was about 60' and a pull-through which is what we'd requested. Little tight getting and out - especially out - with the tow dolly and car but doable. We camped at Quebec City KOA in a Motorhome.

Use the KOA shuttle to get back & forth from the old city. The staff can also book your sightseeing tours in the office and the shuttle is included. Again, they're very knowledgeable.

Sunset Point RV Trailer Park, Lubec, Maine

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

Nice little campground that sits on the bay and has excellent views. No sewer and the water pressure was pretty low (30psi). 50 amp svc was good. Sites were a bit close but not bad for a short stay. The staff is very helpful and accommodating. At the last minute I had to cut our 3 night stay to one night and there was no issue - even in high season. We camped at Sunset Point RV Trailer Park in a Motorhome.

Cosy Cabins Motel and Campground, Woodstock, New Brunswick

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $45.00
Overall Rating:      

Really screwy setup. If you make a mistake and enter the campground first then you either go up an impossibly steep gravel road to the office or turn around and drive up to the office. However, if you choose the latter then you'll have to go up the road a bit, make a turn into an industrial area and find a place to turn around. Best bet - call the office when you get to the campground and ask which site you're in (call ahead to request what type of site required). Park and then walk up the office and sign in.

Once you get past the above, our site was 70' with plenty of space to pull in with the doll and car attached. This was a good spot to stop enroute to Quebec. A fair number of permanent and/or seasonal residents. Our site was long, graveled with a little grass. Did not use the bathrooms or laundry facilities. The check-in process was pleasant and helpful. We camped at Cosy Cabins Motel and Campground in a Motorhome.

Ponderosa Pines Family Campground, Hopewell Cape, New Brunswick

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $43.00
Overall Rating:      

Location was the main reason for staying here since it's only a mile from Hopewell Rocks. Sites are EXTREMELY tight and close together.Hookups were OK. 50 amp was correct and sewer was OK. Water pressure was allover the place. One day we had to use our pump but the other two days it was 35-40 pounds. Very dusty roads and every vehicle kicked up a cloud. Unless you're off the main road plan eating inside. Didn't use the swimming pool. OTA TV was ok with two stations. Again - big
gest plus is the location. We camped at Ponderosa Pines Family Campground in a Motorhome.

Shore Hills Campground and RV Park, Boothbay, Maine

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $47.00
Overall Rating:      

In the Boothbay area, there are few choices. We looked at Shore Hills in 2015 and placed a deposit for 6 weeks in June-July 2016. That worked well and we settled into the site we'd reserved. This review pertains only to the "big rig" area near the office & pond.

Overall, a nice campground. Summertime in Maine = premium prices. The (back-in) site was very deep (50'-55') & had a green strip next to it about 10' wide for the length of the site. Included a picnic table and a fire ring. The site itself wasn't close to level. Had to put blocks under the front wheels and stabilizer. For as long as this campground has been here I expected a level site.

Wi-Fi is available sometimes. 02:00 is a good time to use it otherwise it varies from slow to "oops, the signal went away again." To be fair, they've attempted to provide coverage for a large area and have three separate SSIDs to select. No security on any of them. It's been up and down so many times I don't even count on it being available. If it's just occassional emails and such, no problem. Turn your device on and let it run.

There are only two bath / restroom / laundry facilities here. Again, timing is everything.

The office staff is, uh, so-so. We had issues with UPS deliveries to the office with NO resolution. On the wrong end of an identity theft crisis we were working with our bank to have documents and checks overnighted. UPS did their job, got the signatures and left the pkgs. The office? Well, they swear they never received anything although UPS has their signature as proof of delivery. It's now Tuesday and they were delivered Fri afternoon. "Not me" is the only response. However, they're VERY quick to patrol the campground and warn, people if they violate any rules.

Point is: the office & staff are integral to the camping experience. Shore Hills' office left us wanting. Already picked another park for next year. We camped at Shore Hills Campground and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Lots to see and do in the region. Of course, the main attraction is Boothbay Harbor but eventually you'll want to branch out and explore the entire area.

TripAdvisor ratings of the restaurants are very good & you should trust them.

Airport Park COE, Waco, Texas

Date of Stay: May, 2015 - $12.00
Overall Rating:      

Always enjoy staying here when we come to Waco/Baylor University. With a 36' HM and a tow dolly, we use Google Earth to pick a good site that allows us to pull through. The Reserve America\Recreation.gov web site descriptions are NOT always correct as to access, sewer hookups. You can always call the office for clarification if necessary.

The sites are great. Paved and level. Most have a covered picnic table. All have a fire ring & water. We chose a nice lake-side spot without trees since the weather was expected to be poor and we figured the satellite was going to be used (it was). A number of the sites are treed and that's a good thing in the Texas summer. Again, Google Earth is your friend.

The RV sites aren't close together so there's a modicum of privacy which is nice. Around dusk or sunrise is a good time to go for a long walk and see the wildlife around the area. Deer are all over the place. Lots of roadrunners and the usual collection of other Texas critters as well.

All-in-all a great COE operation. We camped at Airport Park COE in a Motorhome.

Do NOT forget about the 10 PM curfew!!

The gates are locked at 10pm and, if you're not back inside the park by 10pm, you have to park your car at the gate and walk back to you camp site.

Just sayin'

San Antonio KOA, San Antonio, Texas

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

Typical KOA and probably the best choice for San Antonio touring. Very close to downtown (Alamo, River Walk, etc). Bus service is convenient and available from the gate (parking downtown is VERY difficult and expensive). Sites are very close together and level. Wi-Fi is weak but available and functional as long as you just need email or some very slow surfing. So: why a "6"? Well, I reserved a site two months in advance and paid for the first night to secure the site. Made specific arrangements for a specific site and was assured it would be available. Pulled up right at 3pm (check-in time) and was told the site was not available and was then assigned a smaller site in the back row. Took the reassigned site (no choice) and hooked up water, sewer, electric, cable TV and then along comes the office staff. Seems the extra long rig and trailer that checked in right after me had been promised the site I was just assigned. Yep: he made the reservation in JANUARY. The park was almost full so I agreed to pack up and switch sites with him so he could fit in. The office staff said "thanks" and they'd make sure the park manager was made aware of the foul-ups and both of us would be compensated for the issues. Well: not so much. Never heard a word from anyone. (We stayed three days.) We camped at San Antonio KOA in a Motorhome.

Uncle Gus' RV Park & Marina, Clifton, Texas

Date of Stay: July, 2010 - $26.00
Overall Rating:      

The marina & RV park is on Lake Whitney - a HUGE lake NW of Waco. The sites vary in quality. Ours had a cement patio, picnic table and small BBQ. Lot's of trees (small oaks - normal for the hill country) which do provide much needed shade in July. However, that makes it, uh, interesting maneuvering your class A or 5er around! It took three of us to safely get our 36' motorhome tucked away. Be sure to check the web site and request a specific site if necessary. The staff is very helpful and accommodating. Most of the sites are gravel and leveling may be an issue. Again - check the site once you get there before committing to it. Couple of pools that looked well maintained. Keyed laundry facilities, showers and rest rooms. If you're looking for a base camp for fishing - this is a good choice. We camped at Uncle Gus' RV Park & Marina in a Motorhome.

Galveston Island State Park, Galveston, Texas

Date of Stay: July, 2010 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

Previous reviewers are all pretty accurate. It's been a long process getting this state park back online within a very limited budget and they've done a good job. The restrooms and showers are, uh, adequate. We stayed here for a full week while our son attended classes at UTMB. You're on the beach (short walk), great view, 50Amp service and good water - FOR $25/day!! The alternative is a decent hotel in Galveston at $150+/night. Of course the beach is the attraction and it's fine. Clean, brown and very sparsely populated since the park's property is very large and the day visitors aren't allowed in the campsite area. Each site has it's own, covered shelter with a picnic table. The park rangers are all very helpful and friendly - from those patrolling and working outside to the office staff. Word of caution - if your pets are under 10 pounds, keep them inside or else the smaller mosquitoes will carry them off! (The large mosquitoes just swallow them whole). With an on-shore breeze, it's not too bad on the beach side but the Bay side is awful and you'll be eaten alive. With an off-shore breeze, the opposite is true. Summer = mosquitoes. That's life on the upper Texas coast. We camped at Galveston Island State Park in a Motorhome.
