The Villages RV Park at Turning Stone, Verona, New York

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

This was our second stay at this CG, which should tell you something about how we like it. One of the best we've been to. Spotless and well-maintained rest rooms. Sites have plenty of room; we had a pull-through and there was plenty of room to disconnect our TV. Wifi as good as any we've had, even in the evening on a busy weekend. I brought my bike and there were nice routes on the nearby roads, especially Rt. 365, which has a wide shoulder. Took a nice (car) day trip to Rome, Utica, and other nearby towns. This is what every CG should be. We camped at The Villages RV Park at Turning Stone in a Travel Trailer.

We skipped the casino, partly because we had a dog with us and partly because we heard the smoke level was pretty brutal. So, that saved us some money!

Forest Ridge Campground and RV Park (Formerly Hospitality Woods RV par, Ellsworth, Maine

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $47.00
Overall Rating:      

We chose this CG based on the reviews, and were not disappointed. Very friendly owners, attractive and spacious sites, clean facilities. We were in a somewhat wooded site, so we had some shade--nice during the hot part of the summer. Short drive to the town of Ellsworth, where there are nice shops and eateries. Another mile or so to supermarkets. About 20 minutes to Acadia and Bar Harbor, both highly recommended (and the raison d'etre of the area). We also took, and recommend, a 2-hour drive to Campobello, FDR's summer digs, with a stop at the lighthouse of Lubec--the easternmost point in the US. We camped at Forest Ridge Campground and RV Park (Formerly Hospitality Woods RV par in a Travel Trailer.

Apple Island Resort, South Hero, Vermont

Date of Stay: June, 2014 - $62.00
Overall Rating:      

Our experience at this campground differs from that of the folks who down-rated it. The lake view from our site is spectacular. Though amid rolling terrain, our rig found a perfectly level spot that required no adjustment with the jacks. Bathrooms and showers are new, and spotless. The staff we dealt with were friendly and helpful. Far from being rude, our camping neighbors shared their pizza with us and invited us to their campfire at night. We decided to stay 2 nights, not the 1 we originally planned. Note: The campground has been building dozens of new sites, but we were told that they can't open them because of a bureaucratic error. So as you walk to the bathrooms, you pass rows of eerily empty sites. We camped at Apple Island Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Quechee / Pine Valley KOA, White River Junction, Vermont

Date of Stay: June, 2014 - $48.00
Overall Rating:      

We decided on this CG at the last minute after leaving an unacceptable one across the river in NH. Good move. One of the best-managed CGs we've ever been to. Sites are spotless, bathrooms immaculate, trash and recyclables are picked up within minutes of being put by the road. The WiFi worked great, even when the place was almost full. Nice woodsy paths for walking the dog, with over-sized Adirondack chairs nearby. Cable TV worked fine--24 channels. And the Quechee valley, including Woodstock, is there for great day-time scenic rides. I'd definitely come back here. Only reason I didn't give it a 10 is that our site lacked sewer hookup, so we had to store grey water till we left, not a big deal, really. We camped at Quechee / Pine Valley KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Mascoma Lake Campground, Lebanon, New Hampshire

Date of Stay: June, 2014 - $37.00
Overall Rating:      

We didn't stay here, but I wanted to offer my experience to other campers. The site we were offered lacked privacy, a view of the water, and anything approaching attractiveness. We need decent Wi-Fi, and this site (we checked) had none. The staff said they expected to have a new router soon, but that kind of maintenance isn't supposed to happen at the height of the season. The whole park is on a very steep hill, and we just decided to move on. (Ended up at a very nice CG across the river in Vt.) We camped at Mascoma Lake Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Cape Ann Camp Site, Gloucester, Massachusetts

Date of Stay: June, 2014 - $56.00
Overall Rating:      

Very hilly CG, but sites (those we saw, anyway) are level enough. We got a charming site, with plenty of privacy from the foliage and terrain. View of the cove, which is always a plus. Staff was friendly and helpful. Wi-fi was, as in many CGs, sometimes great, sometimes very slow. No cable TV, and we got only 2 (PBS) channels on the antenna. Biggest complaint, and it's not something they can fix, the swarms of mosquitoes. Otherwise, a pretty nice place. The price, high for what you get, is clearly based on the CG's proximity to the beautiful parts of Cape Ann. We camped at Cape Ann Camp Site in a Travel Trailer.

Otter Lake Camp Resort, East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: July, 2013 - $52.00
Overall Rating:      

May be the best CG we've ever stayed in. We stayed from a Monday through Thursday; probably more crowded on weekends. A big plus for us is absolutely flawless Wi-Fi, no matter the time of day. (We were in site G-18, if that matters). Lakefront sites are fantastic, but we didn't have one, as they book up early. Lake is great for boating (we didn't get a chance to do that) and walking around (did that). Wooded sites, good for sleeping late. Clean facilities throughout, including at the pavilion. Bathrooms with single occupancy, a plus for us. We took a scenic drive up to Hawley. I had hoped to do some extensive bicycling, but saw no bike-friendly roads, so confined my riding to short stints inside the CG. Bottom line, we would and may this year, return. We camped at Otter Lake Camp Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Southwoods RV Resort, Byron, New York

Date of Stay: July, 2013 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

We loved this CG. As others have posted, bathrooms are clean and well maintained. We had no trouble getting our 27-foot TT into its back-in site. On arrival, we were effusively greeted by one of the staff. Plenty of places to walk the dog, including the edge of some woods that, when we visited in mid-July, had plenty of ripe wild blackberries. Good mix of seasonals and transients. We stayed 3 nights. I did some cycling on the mostly flat and bike-friendly roads. We took day trips to Lake Ontario and Niagara Falls. Like just about every other CG we've been to, Wi-Fi service is uneven; hence the 9 rating. If our plans take us to that part of NY again, that's the CG we'll use. We camped at Southwoods RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Lake Placid / Whiteface Mtn KOA, Wilmington, New York

Date of Stay: August, 2011 - $36.00
Overall Rating:      

Very wooded, level, and generally well run. Sand at the site wasn't a big problem; we just swept the floor more often. Nice dog path. Excellent cable TV. We had a site near the office, because we requested good Wi-Fi. The signal was usually strong, but it was disconnected frequently. That's my major beef. If the Wi-Fi had been better, I'd have given this place a 10. We camped at Lake Placid / Whiteface Mtn KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Rip Van Winkle Campground, Saugerties, New York

Date of Stay: August, 2011 - $45.00
Overall Rating:      

Very wooded, which is exactly what we wanted. Some reviewers criticize the rustic nature of this CG, but we think it's just right. Sites are well separated, so we had plenty of privacy. Meandering unpaved CG roads were great for my afternoon jog; many of the larger potholes appear to have been recently filled in with crushed stone. Nice pool. Wi-Fi worked better some times than others, but not too bad. Channels on cable TV limited to 8 or 9 NYC broadcast stations. Showers are tiny, lack temperature controls, and require an annoying 25-cent feed for 8 minutes. Bottom line: We're likely to return. We camped at Rip Van Winkle Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Brattleboro North KOA, Brattleboro, Vermont

Date of Stay: May, 2011 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

We camped here just after the Memorial Day weekend, so the CG was sparsely populated. I agree with other reviews that are largely positive. One standout is the bathrooms--immaculate is the only word that fits. One minor shortcoming for us, in late May, was the numerous mosquitoes. Spraying an area repellent helped some, but I'll definitely remember the Off next time. Overall, though, a very well run and inviting CG. We camped at Brattleboro North KOA in a Travel Trailer.
