This is a nice family oriented campground. We have stayed here several times over the last few years. The campground is rustic & has a feel of really being in the mountains. You can see moose wandering through the campsites. The staff is helpful and friendly. This is a very popular campground in July and the summer weekends. You need to make reservations in advance. We were lucky to get in for a few days because of a cancellation. Tip: plan ahead! Their ph# is 970-627-8502 & map location is further north & not on Shadow Mt lake.

This is a wonderful family campground close to outdoor activities of Rocky Mountain National Park and the village of Grand Lake. The campground & restrooms are spotless. There are Moose, Elk & Fox wandering thru the campground in the evenings.The new owner & his staff are very friendly & helpful.

From the check in it is apparent that this CG is all about how much $$$ they can get from you. Their dinky pool was closed for the season but they were not about to charge off season rates. It's on the main drag hence lots of car/truck, train, and even airplane fly over noise. No kidding - heard them all. Then their office staff is generally rude - like everyday for them is a bad day. We were in their 70' pull through and I could reach out the window and touch the rigs on both sides. They even wanted to charge an extra $5.00 for our "chase" car. They do offer a good WiFi connection. They do have a tour office to see the falls next to the office and they get good reviews. Other than that, we'd avoid this CG for the future.

Park is actually in Milford, NY - about 6 miles from downtown Cooperstown. Nevertheless, nice quite, rural park. We were given off season rates. Family owned / operated and they are very pleasant. .25 cent pay showers. Verizon cell barely worked, Altel didn't. Come with long sewer hose etc... as hook ups are well back in the sites. They have 11 cabins and lots of tent sites. In summer they run baseball camps hence the major league and little league field on grounds. Suggest call for space 800-726-7314. if you're a big rig. We are 39' 4 slides. We'd camp with them again. # of sites is a guess as they have approx 24 tenting sites on their 300 acres.

Really nice CG. We were lucky to get in as the Blue Angels are skeduled to perform two days after we hooked up ( 200,000 projected in to see the show ). Grassy sites easy access but not level. Have boards to do the job. There was a CG full of summer camp kids when we arrived but no prob. They have a tennis course, fields so you can walk your pets, access to the tidal areas ( makes for interesting kayaking but maybe bug repellent is in order just in case ). The owners couldn't be nicer. A phone call is in order as closing is dependent upon weather. See their web site. We're in a 4 slide/39' 5th wheel and we had plenty of room as did our 38' MH traveling companions. This would be a nice place to stay for a week or longer as there are lots of things to see in the area.I t's right off of RT 1 - the main tourist trap. The fact that on 12 Sept and we caught off season rates was wonderful.The Wiscasset airport is very close but their traffic is light to moderate and we heard NO planes when it got dark. Comparable area CG's charge MUCH more this time of year.

This is a nice little park that we stayed at for three days. Owned by a delightful lady (Kay) who operates it with her equally delightful daughter (Joyce). Sites are small but maybe because of the location and type camper it attracts, it isn't of great concern. You are within 2 miles of Peggy's Cove and about three miles in the other direction is the Finer Diner. Try their fish and chips - excellent. Their water has a slight taste to it but you are right on one of the many coves so just make sure your water filter is relatively new.There is shopping and fuel about 13 miles up route 333. We would be happy to stay here again. Only gave it a 8 because of no cable, no WiFi, no 50 amp and so-so water quality. Other than that, it's a 10.

One would think that camping here in mid Sept when the park was 3/4 empty that out of season rates would be in effect. Not here! They charge extra for each dog and for each person beyond the two adults. Sites are not wide and not level. It is a tilted field of gravel and grass. Their WiFi was fine but as I said, there we not many campers so not much of a draw on the WiFi system. It is about two miles away from stores and restaurants and not a park that we'd recommend for more than a stopover site. Only had 30 amp available and given the above info, this was one of the most expensive campgrounds we found in the northeast provinces. They charge for their magnetic gate pass (10.00) but they do refund it if you remember to return it.

This campground has a great view of Bras D'Or and Seal Island Bridge from all sites. Campground is located on Trans Canada Highway 105 & easy to get to all the sights on the Cabot Trail, Cape Breton, and Fortress Louisbourg. Also within 15 miles of the Newfoundland Ferry. Friendly staff & very clean restroom and laundry areas. Also, has cabins & good tent camping.Does have modem, but would benefit from WiFi.

Date of Stay:

Very accommodating staff ( the gate person is the staff ). Not much to do at the park. Pool closed when we were there and their showers were being renovated. Sinks/commodes were in clean working shape.We did get a satellite signal but had to park in the lower water/elec area only. No sewer. This area also was not level and they had some water/ soggy site problems. They have a restaurant ( Red Barn ) about 1/2 mile away. The Bell Museum and downtown Baddeck is about 10 minutes away. Worth seeing. They now have competition across the street but we stayed here because we are Coast to Coast Members and the 8.00 per night price was hard to pass up.

Date of Stay:

Very friendly & helpful staff. WiFi is available for a charge. At our site could not get satellite to work because of trees. A lot of seasonal campers with trailers permanently on site. They do have a pull through area for short term RVs. The truck stop within a couple of miles at the interstate had a great cafe. This is a Good Sam park.

Date of Stay:

Nice CG but electric service was low and my surge protector clicked off several times and so running the A/C was something of a challenge. Was crowded and sites are close but the camp is active and the staff/owners go out of their way to accommodate the campers. Wi-Fi worked well within my camper but we could not use the satellite dish because of the overhead trees. Their TV hook-up worked but not well. Nice pool, nice hot tubs and tubing on the river is a plus. Very nice family CG. We would stay here again but not during peak season.

Date of Stay:

Nice park away from the interstate. Their WiFi is currently down. Very friendly office help. Good area to walk the dogs. We would stay here again.

We stayed here as Coast to Coast members, but were only given a site in their overflow area 30amps/water (there were full hookup sites sitting empty). This is a beautiful campground, but felt like we were 2nd class citizens coming in on a coast to coast deluxe membership. We looked to be the only "live campers" in the park, most of the spots were filled with empty ownership RVs. We were told that they had a storage lot, but looked like the RV spots were being used for storage. Doubt that we will make the side trip to stay here again.

Date of Stay:

This campground is becoming an ownership RV park. Their web site is very misleading as to the current condictions. The spots are small, but high tide view are great. It was cool while we were there so only a few bugs. We enjoyed biking from the park to main part of the island. Life is slow and easy going on Cedar Key. We enjoyed our 10 days.

Date of Stay:

Place is pricy but lacks for nothing. Level, cement pads with full hook up. WI-FI avail at office and pool area. Two pools, 3 tennis courts, shuffleboard area, hot tub and showers/rest rooms at these facilities and could be a bit of a walk to them depending on where you're parked. We were 39' w/4 slides and PLENTY of ROOM for rig and tow vehicle. Great tennis matches each morn - just show up. Lots of planned activities. Golf is exec course ( holes average about 120 yards w/water and wood hazards but price ( 15.00 for 9 ) is right/good for the area. People very friendly. Better deal is to come and stay longer than a week. The place is mostly long term renters or owner occupants. We enjoyed our stay.
