Meeman-Shelby Forest State Park, Millington, Tennessee

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $18.00
Overall Rating:      

First of all, there are two types of campers. Those who camp and those who "tour." If you are of the latter, then this probably isn't the campground for you. If, however, you like "woodsy" outdoor rather primitive camping, then this is probably just down your alley.

It rained just before we arrived and the heavily wooded area held humidity like a rain forest (which mosquitoes love). The campsites are ample but not much room to roam around the camper, and many sites would not accommodate both slides and awnings. Paved portion accommodated the camper, tow vehicle and not much else. Side patio was black dirt and stayed moist/wet. There was a small concrete patio to the rear with picnic table, fire ring, also a grill. It is, however, well maintained, clean and quiet. Can't beat the price.

Hard to find even with GPS, and the roads to it (about 12 miles from Hwy 81) are narrow and curvy. We stayed over the fourth of July weekend and campground was only about 50% occupied. We counted 11 RV's and 12 tents. We have family in Atoka and this is the closest CG to them. We will probably stay here again but not in June/July/August. Fall would probably be nice. We camped at Meeman-Shelby Forest State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

The closest decent sized town was Millington (about 10-12 miles). Plenty of shopping, restaurants, etc. there. Atoka and Munford are also pretty close. This campground is about 30 miles northeast of Memphis but I-40 nearby is a straight shot. Millington has an olympic training site and there is a huge naval base adjacent to it. If I planned to visit the Memphis area, I recommend doing it in the spring or fall when the temperatures, humidity and mosquitoes aren't so prevalent.

Clabough's Campground, Pigeon Forge, Tennessee

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

We usually stay at another campground (that we like much better) when we are in the area, but they were full. We got one of the few remaining sites in this CG. The office staff was courteous, but not overly friendly (we checked in while one of them was eating lunch at her desk). Check in was fairly easy and our site was easy to find, as it was a few sites behind the office. We were in the middle of a bunch of permanents who had golf carts, multiple cars, full sized home refrigerators outside the unit, tarps and home built additions. The first thing we noticed was the rules said no pet fences, yet they were all around us. Our site was the smallest I've ever stayed in (40 yrs. camping) and forget privacy. CG was very clean and was maintained OK. Hopefully, next trip, we can make reservations at our regular CG earlier and will go back there. We camped at Clabough's Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We like the Flea Market (out by I-40) on weekends. We usually spend one day shopping/exploring Pigeon Forge, followed by a day in Gatlinburg and one day in the mountains. After that, we're just "spending money uselessly!"

Cross Creek Camping Resort, Delaware, Ohio

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $38.00
Overall Rating:      

Probably the nicest campground we have ever stayed in after nearly 40 years of RVing. It has won "National ARVC Campground of the Year" four times and it's easy to see why. Rural in nature, it has excellent wifi, over the air TV channels (about 15-20), well-maintained and plenty to do. If you're in this area, you won't be disappointed. We camped at Cross Creek Camping Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Columbus Zoo is probably the biggest attraction around. Never realized that Columbus is a city that is bigger than Cleveland, Cincinnati and even Louisville (although Louisville has a statisical area that is bigger). Beautiful lake nearby with all amenities (Lake Alum). Well stocked store and bicycle (both 2 and 4 wheel versions), golf cart rentals available. Plenty to do inside the campground.

Scott's Tent and Trailer Park, Niagara Falls, Ontario

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

Much like described by others. They placed us on a site that was so unlevel that I couldn't get our 5ver leveled out and the sewer was out of reach. Guy behind our site had a 40' motor home and his rig and ours just wouldn't fit. They did move us to another site that worked. TV was pitiful (antenna, only got 2 channels), wifi was "iffy" but worked. Basically a pasture-like piece of ground with gravel roads, grass sites. Most are fairly level (except the first one we were placed in). Lady at front desk when we arrived was nice and cooperative. When we went back to request a site change, she wasn't there and there was a young boy and (I assume) his dad manning the desk. The man OK'd the exchange but didn't seem too happy about it. I recommend staying in the USA and driving over to see the Canadian Falls. That way you keep your cell phone, wifi, etc. Luckily, the Falls are a "once you've seen them, that'll do" type of attraction, so I won't be staying here again. We camped at Scott's Tent and Trailer Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Adventure Bound Camping Resort Gatlinuburg, Gatlinburg, Tennessee

Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $31.00
Overall Rating:      

Great if you like staying out from the other tourists. Very wooded, mostly gravel roads (paved around the office/pool area. Personell was very courteous and friendly. Park could have used some upgrading. We stayed in a small site by a stream. No complaints other than it was too far out for us, but due to a car show in Pigeon Forge, we couldn't find anything else available. We camped at Adventure Bound Camping Resort Gatlinuburg in a Travel Trailer.

Kentucky Dam Village State Resort Park, Gilbertsville, Kentucky

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $22.00
Overall Rating:      

This park has steadily gone downhill for the past several years. It used to be one of Kentucky's premier campgrounds but apparently budget cuts have affected it. Shower houses were dirty most of the time, park was overcrowded (it was a holiday weekend). Sites were roomy and many were level but utilities were a long way from the paved campsite. Lots of mosquitoes due to poor drainage in the campground. Small children drove golf carts and golf carts were operated all hours of the night in dark conditions. Biggest problem was $20 tents were placed in sites beside $200,000 motor homes and many campers were not really "campers," and did not use well known camper etiquette. We won't be back. We camped at Kentucky Dam Village State Resort Park in a Travel Trailer.

Cullman Campground, Cullman, Alabama

Date of Stay: September, 2013 - $23.00
Overall Rating:      

Owner very courteous, nice and helpful. Roads pretty rough and narrow coming into park, but tolerable. Couple of tight turns for a 5th wheel but again, tolerable. Site was gravel, but level and was a pull through (most are). Only problem I had was lack of TV. No cable and antenna reception was practically non-existent (only got about 3 channels). OK for overnighting, but wouldn't want to stay there too long. Pretty good for the money though! We camped at Cullman Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

The Crosseyed Cricket, Lenoir City, Tennessee

Date of Stay: July, 2013 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

We've been RVing for nearly forty years and the Crosseyed Cricket has been in the campground guides for as long as I can remember. We've passed it many times in the past enroute to Gatlinburg so we decided to give it a try. What a joke (and disappointment). It's about 4 miles off I-40 and the roads are rutted gravel, the office is a gazebo. We arrived around 6:30 pm no one was there. We deposited our $25 in an envelope and set out to pick a site. There were only two left (and they were dirt. Thank Goodness it didn't rain or we would have been hung up). Bring bug spray. The guy beside us (along with his pet rabbit) was living (permanently) in an old VW Campmobile that didn't even run. Sorry, but I intend to pass this one up for the next 40 years! We camped at The Crosseyed Cricket in a Fifth Wheel.

Prince William Forest RV Campground, Dumfries, Virginia

Date of Stay: July, 2013 - $32.00
Overall Rating:      

Best campground in the D.C. area for the price. We stayed in Travel Trailer Village which is a vendor-managed campground in the Prince William Forest Property. Nice paved level sites (albeit slightly small but manageable). Nice older swimming pool and courteous, helpful staff. Easy access to I-95 and about 20 miles from the Metrorail. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Prince William Forest RV Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Shady Rest RV Park, Shady Springs, West Virginia

Date of Stay: July, 2013 - $25.00

Pulled off of Interstate because of their sign. If you remember the old Desi/Lucy movie, "The Long, Long Trailer," then you know what the entry road leading here is like. I don't recommend taking anything in here over 18' long. A converted farm, unbelivably (nearly impossible) difficult to navigate. Save the twenty five bucks and find somewhere else. We camped at Shady Rest RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Northgate RV Travel Park, Athens, Alabama

Date of Stay: October, 2012 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

What a pleasant surprise! This campground is not a destination campground but a truly nice overnight (or short stay) place. The owner is one of the nicest, down-to-earth people and the campground serves it's intended purpose well. If more CG owners along the interstates would use this guy's business plan, there'd be no need to stay in a Walmart parking lot. We'll sure be back every time we go to Northwest FL (which is several times a year). We camped at Northgate RV Travel Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Wow! This place is truly paradise. Convenient location, like being in the middle of nowhere yet you're in the middle of "everywhere." Clean campground, easy beach access (4 of them) and a super-friendly staff! No wonder it's so hard to get reservations. We camped at Henderson Beach State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

River Plantation RV Park, Sevierville, Tennessee

Date of Stay: September, 2012 - $32.00
Overall Rating:      

Excellent park near all the Pigeon Forge/Sevierville/Gatlinburg action. Brand new office/store, freshly paved road surrounds the campground exterior (rest are graveled including sites). Just enough rules to make it pleasant to stay here without being too restricted. Rate reflects Good Sam discount. Have stayed here several times and will continue to do so. We camped at River Plantation RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Louisville South KOA, Shepherdsville, Kentucky

Date of Stay: August, 2012 - $47.00
Overall Rating:      

Friendliest staff I've ever met at a campground. At first seemed a bit "pricey," but considering all of the amenities it has, it's probably in line. This is more of a campground for younger campers with kids (or grandparents with kids), since there is so much for them to do. Great location, family friendly and plenty to do. We took our granddaughter and stayed here while we went to the Kentucky State Fair. After an hour at the Fair she wanted to come back to the campground. Would have given it a 10 if the roads had been paved. We will definitely return. We camped at Louisville South KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Indiana Dunes State Park, Chesterton, Indiana

Date of Stay: May, 2012 - $17.00
Overall Rating:      

Very nice campground. Large, comfortable mostly level sites and well maintained. $10.00 entry fee charged when entering but covered by cost of campground fee(s) after the first day. Proximity of South Shore train station into Chicago very convenient (and reasonable). Couldn't drive and park there for the $7.90 fee ($3.45 for seniors 65+). The only complaint was that the staff at the camp store had several people "hanging around" the porch by the front door (appeared to be family members) and most were smoking. Pretty uncomfortable to enter and staff member wasn't the friendliest I have ever seen. Still a great place to camp. We camped at Indiana Dunes State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
