Up the Creek RV Camp, Pigeon Forge, Tennessee

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $49.00
Overall Rating:

As others have stated, this is a quiet campground, about 3 miles off the strip at light #3 in Pigeon Forge (Wears Valley Road). There are no bathroom facilities, no pool, no laundry, no playground. We are fine with this, but families with small children may not be. This is a quiet campground. Paved interior roads, gravel sites. Sites have either fire pits or stone fireplaces, picnic tables or iron table and chairs, depending on the site you choose. Our site (#21) was a pull forward site facing the creek. Booked this when reserving for something different. Would not choose this site if we were to return. Site was just long enough for our coach; our tow car had to be parked across the end of the site at the end of the patio, making us feel a little closed in. In my opinion, the best sites are the back ins along Cove creek (#'s 2-16) or the pull through sites (#'s 3-5) although the pull throughs have minimal shade. Sites 15 and 16 are especially long and spacious. We had trouble with our cable and it was fixed the same day we reported it. The trolley comes into the campground throughout the day, each ride is 50 cents. Sites are checked/cleaned each time someone checks out. We would stay here again when we return to the area. We camped at Up the Creek RV Camp in a Motorhome.

Lots of touristy things to do in Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg...musuems, alpine coaster rides, go carts, mini-golf, etc. For something different, try visiting the Bush's Baked Beans Musuem in Chestnut HiIl or ziplining at Foxfire Mountain. Both a Kroger and a Publix are at light #3 in Pigeon Forge, convenient to stop in on the way back to camp.

Shenandoah Valley Campground, Mount Jackson, Virginia

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $47.00
Overall Rating:

About a mile off I-81, so there is some traffic noise from the highway, but not noticeable in the coach with a/c running. A good overnight stop when traveling north or south on 81. Easy to get to from the highway, all utilities worked great. WiFi was excellent! Gravel roads and sites with some grass. There is a very small pool and a bathhouse/laundry. Our site was long enough that we did not have to disconnect our tow vehicle, saving time in the morning. Would stop here again if passing through the area. We camped at Shenandoah Valley Campground in a Motorhome.

Walnut Hills Campground (formerly Staunton / Walnut Hills KOA), Staunton, Virginia

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

This was an overnight stop for us on our way south. We had stayed here once before, years ago, when it was a KOA. Not much has changed. The KOA signage is still present in the park, with a Good Sam sticker placed over the top of the KOA logo. We had a water/electric/cable site as we requested, in the front section of the park. The site met our needs, as it was only an overnight and long enough that we didn't have to disconnect our tow vehicle. The cable did not work, even after renting one of their digital converter boxes. It is a bit of a hassle to get into the sites in the front of the park, as you have to drive right past them, loop around a section of the campground and come back at it from the other direction. Leaving in the morning requires you to drive into the main part of the campground again and loop around to access the exit. There are some decent sites in this campground, and some not so desirable. With the lack of other campgrounds (with decent ratings) in the area, we would stay here again if traveling through the area. We camped at Walnut Hills Campground (formerly Staunton / Walnut Hills KOA) in a Motorhome.

Oak Plantation Campground, Charleston, South Carolina

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $67.00
Overall Rating:

This was our second stay at this park. This time we were in a different section, ants were not a problem. They do require a $40 non-refundable deposit. I found the nightly rate (with Good Sam discount) reasonable for the park's proximity to downtown, about 20 minutes. The pool is small and right next to busy 17, not sure how relaxing and enjoyable that might be for those who want to use it. Yes, there are many speedbumps in the park, nothing to complain about. And yes, 17 in front of the park gets VERY busy...difficult to take a left at certain times of the day, also difficult to impossible to turn right and get in the left turn lane to head to Kiawah Island. Had to turn into gas station and come out the other direction. Not any fault of the campground owners...just the location and the traffic. Nothing that would prevent me from staying here again. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Motorhome.

RT Rental, Garner, North Carolina

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

AKA Roy's RV Park. Convenient for a stopover on our way From Albany, NY to Hilton Head. And very convenient for a visit with family in the area. No frills here. Just a place to park with full hook ups which is exactly what we were looking for. Our site was gravel with a concrete patio pad. Not many sites here, so call ahead. The owner was very pleasant to deal with. We camped at RT Rental in a Motorhome.

Fredericksburg / Washington DC South KOA, Fredericksburg, Virginia

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $67.00
Overall Rating:

We had a reservation for a FHU pull through site for an overnight stay. Check in went smoothly and we were given an escort to our site. Unfortunately, someone was already parked on the site the young woman was told to bring us to. We waited while she contacted the office. The camper that was there was locked up and the tow dolly was empty...car gone. The office said they had no idea who was on the site and therefore, had no way of contacting them. I find this bizarre. We were attempting to check in and get on this reserved site at 3:00 in the afternoon. Are you telling me that not one employee noticed this supposedly unregistered vehicle on a site in their park all day? We were told the only other FHU 50 amp site available was a back in. Fine, we'll take it. The site was long enough for our 40 foot coach, but not for our tow car, which I had to park on an adjacent empty site. We were having some trouble leveling the coach....no wonder, the rear jacks and wood supports we use had sunk about a foot into the ground. Along with straws, plastic lids, wrappers, and the other trash on the site were some pieces of wood. We were able to pull the coach forward and utilize the trash planks to help keep the rear jacks from sinking again. It wasn't until we pulled into this park that I remembered staying here before...on that visit we had issues with the power hook up. It is unfortunate that there isn't much competition nearby, perhaps that would keep the owners/management a little more on their game. I will say that the young woman who was escorting us to our site was extremely apologetic about the situation and was very polite. The pool was in use and looked clean. The store had a lot of gift items, a few grocery items and some camping/RV supplies. We camped at Fredericksburg / Washington DC South KOA in a Motorhome.

Hilton Head Island Motorcoach Resort, Hilton Head Island, South Carolina

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $90.00
Overall Rating:

Our first time visiting Hilton Head and our first time at a "motor coach only" resort. We loved it! Easy to find off the Cross Island Expressway and close to grocery store, pharmacy, restaurants, and the beach. All within a 5 minute drive. The park has beautiful landscaping and paved roads. You are escorted to your site after check in. Did not use the pool, but it looked clean and well cared for. The laundry room was very clean, $2.50 to wash and $2.00 to dry. Machines worked well. Each site here is privately owned, so there is quite a variety in the amount of landscaping, furniture, etc. on each site. When booking on-line, we were shown available sites (with photos) for the days we wanted to stay and were allowed to pick our site. We were extremely happy with the site we chose. Beautiful landscaping with palm trees and tasteful night lighting, high quality furniture, and a well maintained stamped concrete pad. Very private site. We had no issues during our stay. Can't wait to come here again! We camped at Hilton Head Island Motorcoach Resort in a Motorhome.

Hudson's Seafood restaurant was great, they catch their own shrimp. We enjoyed the Italian ice at Sunset Slush, a nice change from the usual ice cream! Publix grocery store is a 2 minute drive from the park, just across the mail road. Very convenient. Coligny Plaza and Beach are about a 5-7 minute drive.

Aces High RV Park, East Lyme, Connecticut

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $69.00
Overall Rating:

We had not visited this park in about 8 years. We stay here when visiting friends that live in the area. Despite the addition of a (very small) pool and pavilion, this place has gone downhill since our last visit. Two out of three dumpsters were full when we arrived on Tuesday, were never emptied, and were well beyond overflowing when we left on Sunday. No excuse for this. Many branches in need of trimming, on sites and in roadways. Although it has been dry and grass is not really growing, the weeds certainly are! A quick ride through on the mower would take care of this and make the sites look a lot nicer. Security gate was broken/wide open for our entire stay. Digital cable converter boxes are available at the office with a 40 dollar deposit. WiFi was very weak. Interior roads are very dusty. They advertise a midweek special (3 nights for 100 dollars) on their website, I had to ask twice to take advantage of this. Sign out front says Luxury RV Resort, award winning in 2001 and 2005. With some effort on the part of the management, this park could get back to that. We camped at Aces High RV Park in a Motorhome.

Stonewall Resort, Briar Point Campground , Roanoke, West Virginia

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $48.00
Overall Rating:

This is a beautiful campground. The pictures on the website are accurate. You cannot access the water directly from the sites as you might expect from the campground map, but there are a few paths that go down to a grassy mooring area. Kayaks and canoes can be left here, as well. Our site was large with paved parking/driveway, large enough for our 40 foot motor home and tow vehicle. Some sites are much shorter, but there is extra parking in a few lots and near the bath houses. You cannot judge the length of the sites from the map, so be sure to ask when you call for reservations if length is a concern for you. Garbage bins at each site are emptied each morning. They also drop off a newspaper..an unexpected surprise and a nice touch! Fire rings are cleaned out every few days or so. There is a well organized check in system. Paperwork will be sent to you ahead of time; if you have this completed when you check in, you don't even need to get out of your vehicle! I would highly recommend a stay at this campground/resort. We camped at Stonewall Resort, Briar Point Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

There is almost nothing around this resort, besides the scenery. You are not going to make a quick trip for bread or milk here, so come prepared! We visited the two restaurants located in the resort, I would recommend Stillwaters. You must purchase an "activity pass" for access to boat rentals, swimming pool, scenic boat ride, etc. If you are interested in history, be sure to visit the Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum in Weston (about 15-20 minutes from the campground) for a guided tour.

1000 Islands Campground, Alexandria Bay, New York

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

This campground is a convenient location for exploring both Clayton and Alexandria Bay, right on Rt 12. The sites in the front section where we were staying are very close. There was some grass in between sites, which was nice. Placement of fire rings at some sites was odd. No access to the river from this campground. Overall, this campground could use a makeover. There are many small outbuildings, with a lot of clutter and equipment around each one. There are some seasonal/permanent campers and trailers that are quite an eyesore. We camped at 1000 Islands Campground in a Motorhome.

There is a small convenience store, Gal's Place, directly in front of the campground. Good for basics like bread, milk, etc. They also do take out sandwiches. The ice cream window was busy every night, generous servings! There is a path at the back of this campground near the tent sites that takes you through to Grass Point State Park next door. This park is beautiful and right on the water. Worth taking a walk over for the scenery.

Tall Pines Harbor Campground, Temperanceville, Virginia

Date of Stay: July, 2014 - $48.00
Overall Rating:

This campground is about 6 miles off Route 13, down country roads. It is a reasonable drive to Chincoteague and Assateague Islands. The woman who waited on me at check-in and answered a few questions another time was not at all friendly and actually a little rude. The campground offers very little in the way of sightseeing information and brochures. Our site (500 row) was quite long and adequately spaced from the next site. Our site was littered with food and water balloons, and noticed other empty sites with garbage in the fire pits. A lot of golf carts traveling through the park. Many seasonal sites. The grassy, landscaped patio sites are mostly buddy sites with no shade. Although they advertise free Wi-Fi, it is actually only 30 minutes every 8 hours. Also, as others have stated, you can not get any local news or weather on the "cable TV". I guess if you want to keep up to date on the happenings in NYC, you are all set. Only the first half of the stations came in clear, the rest were fuzzy. I would probably try a different campground if returning to this are in the future. We camped at Tall Pines Harbor Campground in a Motorhome.

Chautauqua Lake KOA , Dewittville, New York

Date of Stay: August, 2013 - $44.00
Overall Rating:

We enjoyed our stay here. The owners were friendly and always out and about in the campground. The upper sections of the campground are older and mostly filled with seasonals, some well maintained, others pretty run down. We stayed in the lower section, specifically the K row. The sites in this area are fairly new and quite large with a gravel parking area for both your camping unit and extra car. All the lots in the lower sections are grassy, although there is not much shade. The lower sections are quite a walk from the pool, playground, store, etc., but owners are willing to pick you up on the golf cart. This campground is a convenient for visiting the Lake Erie Wine Trail and the many state parks in the area. We camped at Chautauqua Lake KOA in a Motorhome.

Hemlock Grove Campground, Arundel, Maine

Date of Stay: July, 2013 - $50.00
Overall Rating:

We used to stay a few towns south of here, but when the price of an RV site reached $80, we knew it was time to move on. This was our first time staying at Hemlock grove and we will be back! Most sites are fairly wooded. If you want a more open site, ask for #'s 44-47. Parking is on gravel/dirt. Cable TV had lots of channels and we had good cell phone service (Sprint). Sites are not perfectly level, but nothing too extreme. One criticism I had was the location of the fire ring at our site and in our row. Our fire pit was so close to our unit that we had to roll in our awning and fold back our mat in order to have a fire. Lobster place across the street for live lobsters, or steamed if you place your order early in that day. Owners were friendly and helpful. We camped at Hemlock Grove Campground in a Motorhome.

Clute Park Campground (W W Clute Memorial Park), Watkins Glen, New York

Date of Stay: July, 2012 - $43.00
Overall Rating:

This campground sits directly across the street from the south end of Seneca Lake in Watkins Glen. It is a convenient location for exploring wineries and other Finger Lakes attractions. The sites are not overly spacious, but adequate for our 3 slides and awning. The road through the middle of the campground leads to the town boat launch, so was busy, especially on the weekends. Lots of seasonal sites here, mainly in one section, all were well kept. This park is a good value and convenient to town. Walmart is just across the bridge, about a 5 minute walk. The town is about a 10 minute walk - boat tours, restaurants, ice cream, shops, etc. Our Sprint cell phones had strong signals, the Wi-Fi worked well. We would stay here again. We camped at Clute Park Campground (W W Clute Memorial Park) in a Motorhome.

Melville Pond Campground, Portsmouth, Rhode Island

Date of Stay: August, 2011 - $50.00
Overall Rating:

Although this park is considered "big rig friendly," it is a tight squeeze. The interior roads of the campgrounds are narrow, curved and could use some tree trimming. Many sites are small, so other campers' cars are parked close to the road, making a wide swing to avoid branches difficult or impossible. We got a long scratch down the side of our 40' motorhome trying to get to our site. There are some spacious sites here, however most are taken by seasonal campers, many of whom have permanent decks, sheds, etc. Water and electrical hook-ups are in very odd places at many sites, so plan to bring long hoses and cords. This is a very convenient campground for exploring the Newport area. Large grocery store, gas stations, and eateries are all on the main road leading towards downtown Newport. We camped at Melville Pond Campground in a Motorhome.
