Great RV park for an overnight stay; sign in and choose whatever site you like. Sites are a little short, but are laid out well and everyone seems to make adjustments. There's space between the sites and plenty of room for the slider and to set chairs out for an evening cocktail. Sites are gravel and dirt, making for a lot of dust, a situation not helped by on-going construction on the ALCAN that runs in front. It's somewhat noisy but that's mitigated by the minimal traffic moving at night. We don't use campground bathrooms so can't comment on cleanliness, but did notice during check-in that the laundry room was messy. Water and 30/50 amp electric hookups; sewer is at a dump station. No television but surprisingly good Wi-Fi. Rate is $32 Canadian; $26 US.

Nice park! We checked out all the parks in Valdez and each space in this park has, by far, more privacy than all the other parks. This park has grassy, tree filled areas between each site and many are set back from the park road. Nice views of the mountains and a waterfall coming off the top. Electric only! No water and no sewer but a dump station is available and convenient. The campground roads are all dirt and gravel leading to a considerable amount of dust with no dust-abatement in effect. We have 4g coverage from Verizon here (2 bars) and are able to pick up one analog TV station over-the-air. Bathrooms are well-placed and appear clean. Cost is $25 for Military/Retired Military and $30 for everyone else, per night.

This campground is basically a large parking area in front of the hotel but with full hookups and 50 amp service. It's right-off the Glenn Highway and close to the intersection of Glenn/Tok Cutoff/Richardson Highways and a great campground if you're just planning to spend the night (and I can't imagine anyone doing anything else in Glennallen). The campground is very basic but clean. No bathrooms or showers. The water is very carbonated and comes out milky but clears quickly. The surrounding area is dominated with buildings that look in poor repair but the hotel and restaurant appear quite nice, at least from the outside. There isn't a lot of road noise because there's not a lot of traffic and overall it was a pleasant night's stay. I'd stay here again if I was passing through Glennallen.

Good park with a million-dollar view. The RV park sits on top of the bluffs overlooking Cook's Inlet. Looking out you see the full Inlet with all the snow-covered mountains in the background. The park is reached a couple of miles before Homer but you've got to keep your eyes open for it--it's not well marked. It sits behind a gas station on top of a fairly steep down-grade going into Homer. Once you pull off the road and into the park, you know you've chosen the right place. My wife and I walked through and there's not a bad site. Not one! Bathrooms and laundry room were clean. The laundry was expensive; $4.00 for a wash and $0.25/five minutes for the dry cycle. The "fully-loaded" price for the sites was $50.00--the most expensive place I've stayed in while here in Alaska. If it wasn't for the cost, I would have rated them higher. The access roads and interior roads were paved; the sites were gravel and grass and there was minimal highway noise. Despite the cost, I would definitely stay here again.

Very clean and top-notch park support. We never found anything out of place while we stayed here. Campsites are reasonably-well spaced and each site had a paved pad. On the downside, the campground is right beside SR-81 and is VERY noisy. If you stay here, try to get a site 1-21 or 141-158 which are the furthest from the road. Those sites aren't quiet but are further from the road than the sites numbered 62-92. While here, take the Clewiston Chamber of Conference tour of historic houses, sugar processing and citrus: it's well worth the while. I probably won't stay here again because of the noise, but again, it is a clean, nice campground

John Prince Campground is well maintained and clean. We camped here in the winter and the park was packed--not am empty site. Reservations are absolutely essential. Some the sites are right on top of each other; others are well spaced out. We had a waterfront site with lots of room but the non-waterfront all looked a lot tighter. Each site is paved and relatively level. WIFI is good but gets saturated with all the users. There is a good 10-mile bike-riding trail around the park that's worth doing. Staff was overworked but friendly and efficient. We would stay here again.

Campground appears to be going downhill and needs upgrading. Electric hookup cabinets had panels falling off that exposed bare electric mains. Cable TV appeared to be there at one time but had fallen into disrepair. Swimming pool is available at neighboring Ramada Hotel but was cracking with a lot of mold in the cracks. There's a lot of full-timers with sites in need of cleaning. However, the campground is close to I-95 (less than 1 mile), surprisingly quiet, generally clean and the staff is better than average. Rate paid was Passport America. Despite all the bad, my wife and I would stay here again due to it's proximity to the highway.

Up-and-coming campground. It appears a lot of improvements are being made. The campground is clean and tidy with wide, pull-through sites. Staff is friendly with quick check-in and escort to the site. Camp store is mediocre with little on the shelves. The above-ground pool was clean and looking inviting. Crated dogs in neighboring sites barked constantly but otherwise there was little noise. The campground is located about 30 miles off I-95. Because of the distance from the highway, we probably won't stay here again. Rate shown is a Passport America rate.

Great campground! Spacious, waterfront sites with concrete pads and lots of foliage. Be careful: my GPS brought me in from the East and assumed that the ferry would be a good match for my motorhome. The Ferry holds about two cars and wasn't compatible, but the drive around was only about 45 minutes. We sat on the banks of the river every evening and watched bird, animal and boat activity. We camped here during the week and it was quiet and well-spaced but I've heard it's jam-packed on weekends. The $23 rate is Passport America and is only available on weekdays; on top of the rate is a $4 per day energy surcharge. Credit cards are not accepted nor are checks for PA; however the staff found ways to say "yes" to resolve shortfalls. We will definitely stay here again.

Nice campground close to Southern New Hampshire cities and within a reasonable distance to Boston (1 hour or so). One highlight is Parkers Maple Barn that's about two miles away where maple syrup is made and meals are served that feature NH maple syrup (go figure). Quite a few seasonal campers in well-kept sites. Playground for kids but no swimming facilities. Very tight camp sites all-around and somewhat inconvenient utility hookups (the sewer on my site had to be held in to avoid separation). Good Wi-Fi and excellent cable TV. Overall, pretty good but the close proximity of sites dropped the overall rating.

Date of Stay:

This is a nice park in the woods of Vermont. It's close to everything but far enough away to be isolated from the noise and lights. Tent sites are spectacular! Each one is isolated from the others and each has a great view. However, we stayed in a motorhome in a pull-through site very close to the other sites with no trees or foliage. View was good and the site was very quiet. Ease of access and egress was very good and the dirt roads are easy to navigate. Wi-Fi is excellent and the dump station was convenient (there's no sewer hook-up at the sites). We would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Okay overnight campground close to I-81. Roads leading to the campground are steep, but not too bad. The biggest drawback is truck engines revving up as they hit the grade and the campground is pretty noisy. Most of the pull-through sites are permanent campers with only 4 set-aside for travelers. Back-ins are readily available. Sites are clean with lots of surrounding trees. We probably won't stay here again because of the noise.

The Kiptopeke State Park Campground is basically several large fields with Water, Electricity and Sewer hookups. Sites are poorly marked but it's not a major problem once you realize it relaxes the regimen found in most campgrounds. Swimming in Chesapeake Bay in the park is nice and is an easy walk from the sites. The park is clean and grassy areas are well maintained but the roads are narrow with many potholes. This was the highest cost I've ever paid for a state park and on top of the $41 for the site, there was another $5 for each dog. Although the location directly across the Chesapeake Bay Bridge is ideal and the staff very friendly, I won't stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Good campground with a winery attached and wine tasting while you check in. Pretty decent wine, too. The only thing I objected to was having to pay a tasting fee even though I bought wine--seemed that the $10 (each) fee was excessive if wines were purchased. Campground is well spread out with plenty of room in each site; campground is very quiet, clean and well maintained. We will stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Great place to spend the night before catching the ferry, but little more than that. The campground is clean but has no amenities (bathrooms, showers, etc) and sewer hookups are non-existent for over-nighters but a dump station is available. The nice thing about the campground is that it's less than 100 feet to the ferry and has very easy entrance and egress features. Don't plan on spending any time here; it is a good waiting place for the ferry and nothing more. If I was taking the ferry again, I would stay here.
