Sturgeon Falls KOA, Sturgeon Falls, Ontario

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

This is a pretty KOA along the river with open grassy areas. The owners of the KOA have done a lovely job of improving the park and their effervescent and happy attitude was a bright spot in our day. We camped at Sturgeon Falls KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Miles City KOA, Miles City, Montana

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $41.00
Overall Rating:      

While the immediate surrounding area of this KOA is not as beautiful as some locations, the proprietors of the Miles City KOA are among the friendliest and most helpful you can imagine. The facility is located right near the charming cowboy town and it is quite nice to travel in to town to visit the bars and shops. DO pay attention to the advice to use exit 135 (not the first exit coming from the East) as there is an 11' RR overpass and our 13'6" RV would certainly not have fit underneath. We camped at Miles City KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

The Range Rider museum is a pleasant surprise that holds a vast collection of cowboy collections, in addition to a variety of exhibits showing the evolution of Miles City. You can also enjoy a stop at The Montana Bar, the building going back to 1893. And, the western wear and saddle shop houses a wonderful array of clothing and a great saddle museum upstairs.

Fort Abraham Lincoln State Park, Mandan, North Dakota

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a lovely, quiet park at the confluence of the Heart and Missouri rivers, a few miles out of Mandan and near Bismark. The sites along the river are long, covered with fresh gravel, with trees trimmed for large RVs. A variety of walkways and paths wind through the park, which also features historic buildings. Cyclers will enjoy the bike paths. Birders will see a variety of special birds. We stayed two nights and found a variety of activities to do in the area. We camped at Fort Abraham Lincoln State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Several bike paths in the area are great, with beautiful vistas. There are a also number of good museums in town and a nice zoo. We were here in September and the park was wide open, yet the evenings were warm. Definitely a good stop that we'd recommend, especially if traveling with children or grandchildren.

Pancake Bay Provincial Park, Batchawana, Ontario

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $46.00
Overall Rating:      

The park office was open late and was very helpful. This is a park with thick trees and it's hard for a large fifth wheel to get in to many of the sites. It was raining when we arrived, so we opted for a site along the road. There is a long beach, but the brush is thick between many of the sites and the beach. In September, it was first come first served. Arrive early if you want to camp there on a weekend since it is close to Sault Ste. Marie. We camped at Pancake Bay Provincial Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

The drive above Lake Superior is quite beautiful in September. Remember that many of these parks close at the end of Sept/Oct, so check dates. There are not many services and restaurants open and we opted to keep our fuel tank full. Be ready for roadwork delays in the late summer and fall. Arrive at parks early since they are first come/first served.

Sleeping Giant Provincial Park, Pass Lake, Ontario

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

This is a remote park on a peninsula near Lake Superior. It is a fair distance from the Trans Canada Highway, but a nice park with lots of areas for hiking. Campground is narrower. RVs fit in the 200 area at the far end, with some campsites having a view of the lake. Campsites on the upside of the lake have a view of trees that are mostly dead from about 8' down, so even though you have privacy, it's not ideal to look at. We were here in September and the roads and trails get fairly muddy. The beach area is pretty and the only place we could get wifi. You can bring your portable there to get good cell reception with pleasant scene. We camped at Sleeping Giant Provincial Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Kakabeka Falls Provincial Park, Kakabeka Falls, Ontario

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $52.00
Overall Rating:      

Nice park at the top of the hill with mostly level, gravel-lined sites. Rangers were very helpful and loan out extension cords (with a deposit). Electrical panels in Canada can be nearly 100' from your RV. Sites here were better geared for large fifth wheel trailers than many in Ontario. Trees were trimmed more for our height and width. Nice walking paths that are used for skiers in winter. Falls are beautiful with a great boardwalk. Variety of things to do in Thunder Bay. We camped at Kakabeka Falls Provincial Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Charlottesville KOA, Charlottesville, Virginia

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $50.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a nice KOA tucked in a rural forest, surrounded by farmland. It is convenient to the Monticello and Ash-Lawn Highlands attractions. The young couple who manage the park are friendly and helpful, keeping it tidy. We were there before school was out, so the park was only half full, which made it spacious. If it were completely full, some of the sites might seem too close. But, it was ideal mid week. We camped at Charlottesville KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Gettysburg / Battlefield KOA, Gettysburg, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $50.00
Overall Rating:      

This is about the most well equipped KOA you will ever encounter. Everywhere you stroll, there are activities for children. And, there are the sights of Gettysburg nearby. The staff was helpful, responsive, and kept the campground organized. There are lots of trees around the park, flowers, and water features that make the camp an ideal spot for families on summer vacations. We camped at Gettysburg / Battlefield KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Peaks of Otter Campground, Blue Ridge Parkway (NPS Campground), Bedford, Virginia

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

While this is a beautiful campground with nice trails, a pretty lake, and plenty to do exploring the Blue Ridge Parkway, it is an older campground that is not ideal for modern-sized RVs. Many of the sites are so unlevel that they exceed the jacks' leveling range, even with wood blocks. We were able to fit our RV in one site and paid for a second site for our tow vehicle. Although the rangers and park hosts are especially nice, helpful, and flexible, many of the descriptions provided on the reserve system website give inaccurate descriptions about the reality of the actual sites. If your rig is less than 20', you might be okay. Anything over 24' will be a big risk with only a few sites that will actually work. We camped at Peaks of Otter Campground, Blue Ridge Parkway (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

The Cades Cove Loop trail is exquisitely beautiful and is closed to cars Wednesday and Saturday mornings. We rode bikes around the loop on Saturday morning, thoroughly enjoying the glorious meadows, wildflowers, and even spotting seven bears. Knowing that we had limited time to ride the narrow road with bikes, we drove the loop later during the day to check out the historical churches, cabins, mills, etc. on our second pass.

Asheville's Bear Creek RV Park & Campground, Asheville, North Carolina

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

This is a nice place to stay if you want to tour Asheville and the Biltmore Estate. Some of the spots are very tight, but others have more space. What you can't see from the campground map is how very steep the area is, so that a campsite that looks like it directly behind you may be a fifty feet higher or lower. You may or may not end up with a nice view, depending upon the slope. The biggest attraction is the proximity to Biltmore, the Farmers Market, the North Carolina Arboretum, and other area sights. If you buy tickets for Biltmore, you get a two-day pass at the price of a one-day pass. So, you can spend one day touring the house and formal gardens and a second day exploring some of the 8,000 acres of the estate. We enjoyed our visit and would recommend to others. (The laundry rooms were very small and could only handle a tiny amount of laundry, so we took ours to a laundromat in town.) We camped at Asheville's Bear Creek RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Doughton Park, Laurel Springs, North Carolina

Date of Stay: May, 2016 - $19.00
Overall Rating:      

This is one of the old-fashioned National Park campgrounds that seems like it was created around the time that the Blue Ridge Parkway was built after the Great Depression. The roads and the campsites are narrow with no overflow parking, which means you must be able to fit your entire camping rig in the length of the driveway. It is beautiful, it is quiet (unless your neighbors are running a generator), and there are lovely places to hike. There was some cell phone voice and data coverage and a campground host. Some of the sites are reservable, while others are not. We were able to fit our 30' fifth wheel in a larger pull-through spot by backing into it. However, many of the sites would not accommodate our size or our slides. After a glass of wine and a beer, it was a beautiful place to stay and listen to the birds. There are not many services, but for $19/night it was worth it. We camped at Doughton Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Fireside Resort - Jackson Hole Campground, Wilson, Wyoming

Date of Stay: September, 2010 - $59.00
Overall Rating:      

The best thing about this campground is it's proximity to the beautiful Tetons, a great bike trail and Jackson, Wyoming. The campground has nice, grassy sites with trees and grass. It is far enough away from the road that most sites do not have road noise. It is one of the few campgrounds that actually recycle a variety of materials. We had great Verizon coverage and the free Wi-Fi worked well enough to run You Tube. We would stay here again. We camped at Fireside Resort - Jackson Hole Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Angel Lake RV Park, Wells, Nevada

Date of Stay: August, 2010 - $27.00
Overall Rating:      

While the folks who helped us at the RV campground were extremely nice, courteous and helpful, don't expect much more than a gravel site. Although the freeway was nearby, the noise did not bother us at night -- perhaps because it is situated at the bottom of the hill. We heard the railroad once, but it was pleasant. The laundry room was clean and the Internet worked great. This is a pleasant place to stay for one night only. We camped at Angel Lake RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Blackwell Island RV Park, Coeur d'Alene, Idaho

Date of Stay: August, 2010 - $45.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a huge RV park along the river with dozens of RVs ranging from Scamps to the biggest of big rigs. Only a few sites are close to the river, with the majority having plenty of room for slides, etc. Most of the patrons were very friendly and the office staff was helpful, friendly and had a great sense of humor. This is a great place to go if you want to walk around and talk with other RV'ers or if you want to sit on a nice afternoon along the river. The RV park is not actually along the river front walk if that is what you are looking for, you'll need to get in your car for that. I would stay here again, but only if I had extra time to explore "CDA". We camped at Blackwell Island RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
