Key Largo Kampgrounds and Marina, Key Largo, Florida

Date of Stay: December, 2009 - $73.00
Overall Rating:

Great location but extremely tight quarters for big rigs. We were there in a 40' motorhome and could maneuver our way into only one site (#75). All other sites were impossible to get into because full-time residents have built their awnings and parking areas so close to the road, there is not enough room to turn. The sites (once in them) are spacious and as others have said, very tropical and comfortable. Wi-Fi was available only in the office building. Site #75 is located right on the water and at the bottom of a one-way, U-shaped access road. Everyone we saw went in AND out what is supposedly the "in-side" of the U. The reason? The "out-side" of the U is extremely narrow (crowded by stored boats, telephone poles, and assorted buildings) and overgrown by palm trees. Basically, a place I would NOT recommend for big rigs (40' or more). Otherwise, an okay place for a short visit and a nice stop-over on the way to Key West. The Fish House (out the main gate and to the right about 1/2 mile on US1) is terrific. The conch chowder is incredible as is the Key Lime Pie. We camped at Key Largo Kampgrounds and Marina in a Motorhome.

Fifty Point Conservation Area, Grimsby, Ontario

Date of Stay: August, 2009 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

Have made more extensive comments in an earlier review. Wanted to note, however, that WiFi IS now available. At the end of August, 2009 they were experimenting with the best repeater location(s) but we were able to receive a fairly strong and consistent signal in site #41 (located about half-way across the campground from the nearest signal source). We camped at Fifty Point Conservation Area in a Motorhome.

Arrowhead Marina & RV Park, Schenectady, New York

Date of Stay: August, 2009 - $26.00
Overall Rating:

Large, mature trees; well-manicured lawns and grassy areas; very park-like. Would definitely be a "10" if they had wifi (it is in the works according to the owners), cable, and a pool. Easy access from Exit 26 on New York State Thruway. Definitely the best in the area and working to get better. We were there for 7 days and will return if we are in the area again. We camped at Arrowhead Marina & RV Park in a Motorhome.

Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park Hagerstown, Williamsport, Maryland

Date of Stay: July, 2009 - $47.00
Overall Rating:

Want to add only one item to previous comments. If you have a large motorhome and want a level site, be very careful about the site to which you are assigned. The first site we were assigned was extremely "downhill" and there was no way to get our 40' motorhome even close to level (front to rear) even though my reservation (submitted several months in advance of our arrival) specifically indicated that we had a 40' coach. Management was able to find us a level site (#218 if you want to request a specific site!), and our visit was fine after that. It remained the case, however, that through out the time we were there, management continued to put motorhomes on the same unlevel site we were assigned upon arrival. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park Hagerstown in a Motorhome.

RV Village Camping Resort, Mercer, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: July, 2009 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

I have not stayed at this campground BUT there is a serious omission in the driving directions provided by the campground website. On highway 62 from I-79, there is a NARROW, LOW-CEILING tunnel under railroad tracks. I have confirmed with the campground that the tunnel has a ceiling of LESS THAN 12 FEET. If you are considering a visit to this campground, definitely get specific directions from the office. DO NOT take the exit off I-79 and follow highway as the website suggests as a possible route. We camped at RV Village Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Mill Run, Mill Run, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: July, 2009 - $34.00
Overall Rating:

There are sites that accommodate Big Rigs ... BUT, they are not level. We ended up with three 2X6s under our front wheels and leveling jacks to get level. Many smaller motor homes had their front wheel hanging in the air. WiFi is available BUT not in the Big Rig area. Cost is $7.95 per day and you have to go to the main building to get access. Third (and most important) there is a steel girder bridge on Highway 381 that you MUST cross if you approach the campground from the north (Penn Turnpike). The stated clearance on the bridge is 12' 7". My motor home is supposedly 12' 6" tall. I held my breath and went for it. Made it across without incident but would NEVER try it again. If your RV is taller than 12' 6", I would NOT go to this campground via Highway 381 South. All in all, a good campground, lots of stuff for the kids ... but outdated when it comes to handling modern Big Rigs. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Mill Run in a Motorhome.

Hartwick Highlands Campground, Cooperstown, New York

Date of Stay: September, 2008 - $41.00
Overall Rating:

We arrived one day earlier than planned and spent our first night on a pull-thru site that was neither level nor landscaped. Looked to be one of about a dozen sites largely designated for transients and one-night visitors. Moved to our reserved site in the woods on the second night. It was beautiful, totally level, fully serviced (50 amp)and easily negotiated in our 40-foot motorhome even though it was a "back-in". The only negative was an inability to obtain a satellite or antenna television signal ... and the campground does not have cable. We were able to receive NPR on a small radio but otherwise, were cut-off (information-wise) from the world. We could not get a WiFi signal at our site. Nice areas/trails to walk. As the closest RV campground to Dream Park, Hartwick Highlands is devoted to baseball 24/7. A very interesting and lively place. Cooperstown and environs, as always, are terrific and great fun. Lots of wonderful places to see, things to do, and restaurants to visit. We will return just because it is all such fun. We camped at Hartwick Highlands Campground in a Motorhome.

Toronto West KOA , Campbellville, Ontario

Date of Stay: May, 2006 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

I do not know the answers to some of these questions because managers of the facility do not allow potential customers to enter the park for a drive through and only provide information on a sheet that is provided in a kiosk outside the barrier that prevents entry. I was told that I could park my vehicle outside the park and walk around (in the rain) if I wished. My presence at the "barrier" was clearly an annoyance to the management on duty. Since I chose not to walk around strange campgrounds in the rain, since management would not allow me to drive-thru the facility, and since I never purchase without at least looking at what I am buying, I left. I will not return. There are many other campgrounds in the area that are managed/owned by people who are more then willing to let you drive around and check things out, who go out of their way to be hospitable, and who clearly want your business. I encourage you to give them a try. We camped at Toronto West KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Mercer / Grove City KOA, Mercer, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: September, 2005 - $34.00
Overall Rating:

We thoroughly enjoyed our brief weekend stay at this KOA. The staff was friendly and very helpful, the campground well-maintained, the facilities very clean, and the store well-stocked. We enjoyed our stay so much that we have reserved a spot for two weeks in mid-July and added a Kottage for our children and grandchildren. Proximity to the Prime Outlets Mall is clearly a plus. Grocery stores, diesel fuel, and assorted restaurants are all within a short drive. Slippery Rock University, an American educational icon, is located one exit south on I-79. If for no reason other than being able to say you have been there, it is worth a visit! We camped at Mercer / Grove City KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Cooperstown Shadow Brook Campground, Cooperstown, New York

Date of Stay: August, 2005 - $29.00
Overall Rating:

This is a beautiful campground, located on the east side of Otsego Lake at the north end, approximately 9 miles from Cooperstown. The major deficiency, from our perspective, was the small number of full hook-up sites. With grandchildren using the bathroom and taking baths/showers, we ended up getting three pump-outs at $12. 00 each. There is an ample number of sites for large rigs BUT the roadways tend to be narrow and winding with many overhanging trees and the occasional sharp curve. Nonetheless, many large rigs managed to negotiate their way through without difficulty while we were there. The owners of this well-established campground were new in 2005 and make a genuine and sincere effort to be hospitable and helpful. Getting to the campground can be difficult due to narrow, winding highways along the lake. The owners provide detailed directions on how to "get there" without a problem. The directions are on the website and should be followed precisely. We camped at Cooperstown Shadow Brook Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
