Mount Pocono Campground, Mount Pocono, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: June, 2013 - $48.00
Overall Rating:

There is a long downhill gravel entry road with four “speed-dips”. These are actually trenches cut across the road for water run off. Go slow and you will be okay. It did rain some while we were here, but not enough to cause an issue going up/downhill. But, it could possibly become a problem with heavy, long-lasting rains. The campground is very clean and well tended. The only complaint is that the gravel caused everything to be covered in dust. A lot of seasonals (a couple that could use a good washing) but all that we saw were very neat, no trash or plastic totes of stuff stacked outside. Since we were only here a few days, we were placed in the “transient” area. It is open for good satellite reception and has two rows of gravel covered, terraced, pull through sites, wide enough for slide outs and awnings. But, our 40 ft motorhome filled the site from end to end so we could not have stayed connected. Check your site out before you set up as some are more level than others. Nice playground and very clean, heated pool, horseshoe game area, lawn area with volleyball and badmiton nets, rec room with pool table, big screen TV and fitness area. There are more improvements being made daily. A deck is being built, gravel being replaced and re-graded, and landscape updating. The free Wi-Fi had a strong signal, it was adequate (not hi-speed) but we got kicked off about once an hour. Electric voltage was steady, water pressure sufficient and the 75 cable channels were clear. We were here during the week and it was very peaceful and quiet. Weekends might be different when the seasonal sites are more in use. We would return again. We camped at Mount Pocono Campground in a Motorhome.

Pine Hill RV Park, Kutztown, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: September, 2012 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

We agree with most of the August 2012 review. However, there are sites, like the one we had, that are not level. Steady electric, good water pressure, friendly staff. If you want to use satellite choose your site wisely as many sites have trees that will interfere. No pool is a negative especially at $45/night and WIFI was out of order for our entire 3 night stay. No discounts for camping clubs or AAA, Good Sam, etc. There is noise from I-78. We camped at Pine Hill RV Park in a Motorhome.

New York City North / Newburgh KOA, Plattekill, New York

Date of Stay: September, 2012 - $66.00
Overall Rating:

Staff impersonal, not friendly or unfriendly, just wanted money and pointed you in the correct direction. No escort to site. Pool and other amenities closed for season, no pancake breakfast, no jumpy pad, and no mini golf. Nothing was available after Labor Day but you still pay full price and an extra $5 resort fee. Why? Rates are for two people but children and pets are extra money. “Deluxe RV sites” are a large parking lot type area with crushed rock, no grass, are about 10 feet too short for big rigs, very close together, and no bathroom facility in the area. No over-the-air stations available and only 8 snowy cable channels. No Wi-Fi. No lights in area at night,making it extremely dark so keep your doors locked. There is no night time security. Expensive but it’s the only game in town and they know it. Would only return because there's nothing else available in area. We camped at New York City North / Newburgh KOA in a Motorhome.

Pine Acres Family Camping Resort, Oakham, Massachusetts

Date of Stay: September, 2012 - $88.00
Overall Rating:

Yikes! This place costs more than Disney! It’s out in the middle of nowhere and you have to drive forever to even get to a grocery store. While the setting is nice the sites are scattered all over, one is in the middle of a small island area formed where three roads come together – constant traffic all around. Almost every activity is pay extra. Base rates is only for two adults, then you add $7.50 per night for each child over 4 years, $15 per night for each extra adult, $5.00 extra PER pet PER day, visitors $10 extra per person per day. The pool and children’s splash area is nice but they are not heated and way too small for the amount of campers. You cannot enter the pool unless you are a registered camper and they have a list of sites and names that they check against upon entry and give you a colored wristband good for that day only. Excessive rules and employees continuously patrolling on golf carts to make sure there is no infraction of the rules. Children are everywhere on bikes and not supervised by parents. Children riding bikes without a helmet get their bikes confiscated and not given back. Resort employee claimed Massachusetts law says they cannot give bikes back and that confiscated bikes are given to needy children’s organizations. The beach area only open 10am to 6 pm?? Pool opens/closes at whim of management. Quiet hours 11 pm to 8 am, fires out at midnight and patrols make sure you are not even outside whispering after 11 pm. It is very dark at night, no lights except in parking area by lodge. No satellite coverage due to heavily treed area and cable had few stations and was very poor quality. Wi-Fi provided by Tengo Internet and was supposed to get 1 hour free each day. First day got Wi-Fi for 15 minutes and then could not connect without paying extra. Power fluctuated greatly between 102 volts to 116 volts during each day. Power into resort from local utility was low and had excessive voltage drops from resort's distribution transformer to individual sites. Owner claimed Mass Power only required to supply 110 volts and there was nothing he could do. Then owner tried to blame low voltage problem on our RV because our power management system shut down power to it when voltage dropped below 103 volts to protect our equipment. Rude owner told to us to use our own propane to run refrigerator and hot water heater to offset low voltage issue. Can’t understand why we should have to use our own propane and cost us even more when we are paying such exorbitant price for the “resort” to supply proper power?? The last straw was when numerous cars were broken into over the Labor Day weekend and GPS’ and other valuables stolen. Never returning to this place again! We camped at Pine Acres Family Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

Narrows Too Camping Resort - Thousand Trails, Trenton, Maine

Date of Stay: August, 2012 - $48.00
Overall Rating:

Rate includes a $3/day “resort fee” but I don't know what that covered since this is definitely not a resort. Unless you get an oceanfront spot, save your money and get the cheapest available. The rest of the spots are all about the same, mostly level, gravel with grass between, no water views. The place is full of big rigs as very few trees and wider roads make it easy. Clean restrooms but some showers had mold. Steady electric and good water pressure, friendly office personnel. Nothing here for children except a pool. Only one activity held during the entire week. WiFi is Tengonet, costs $$$, very slow and keeps disconnecting. Cable TV good with about 50 stations. Small, tiny ocean access area is rocky and no swimming (water is way too cold). There is an airport next door. If you’re around during the day you will see and hear many small planes and private jets taking off and landing (the noise stops at night). I can understand why people want to camp on Mt Desert Island as it takes a while to drive into Bar Harbor. Free LLBean shuttle bus stops here but with all the stops it makes you need to allow an hour to get into Bar Harbor. Acadia NP is beautiful with lots of hiking and biking trails and on a clear day the view from Cadillac Mountain gorgeous. Take the free shuttles or go early as parking lots fill up quickly. Those with children should ask about the Junior Ranger Program. We camped at Narrows Too Camping Resort - Thousand Trails in a Motorhome.

Freeport Village Campground, Freeport, Maine

Date of Stay: August, 2012 - $42.00
Overall Rating:

Nice and quiet. Long pull through with lots of space between sites. Very friendly people. The owner provided lots of area information and we were invited to the evening social hour. Pool available. This is an adult community. Most are long term and seasonal. Only a couple transient sites available. Dirt/gravel roads. Looks like the owner is working to add a few more sites. 2 miles to Freeport for good food and shopping. Cable and internet no longer available so that makes this place a little too expensive. We camped at Freeport Village Campground in a Motorhome.

Lamb City Campground, Phillipston, Massachusetts

Date of Stay: July, 2012 - $33.00
Overall Rating:

We took a FHU in the open area near the pool. Steady electric and good water pressure. Mostly seasonals and everybody, including the owners, was very nice. Sites range from wooded, lake area and open. A few pull throughs for transients are in a heavily wooded area. Two small pools, one solar heated and one not heated which was very cold. The pools and playground area are not big enough pools to accommodate the amount of people staying in this park along with the extra guests that come for weekends. Side roads are a little on the narrow side and mostly dirt so it can get muddy when it rains. Very steep, gated entrance/exit ($20 deposit for gate card). Bathrooms mostly clean but got dirty quickly on crowded weekend. Some organized activities usually on the weekend and geared to the teenage crowd. Come prepared since it’s a bit of a drive to shopping or restaurants. We camped at Lamb City Campground in a Motorhome.

Branch Brook Campground, Thomaston, Connecticut

Date of Stay: July, 2012 - $48.00
Overall Rating:

Cash or check only and $3 PER A/C unit. There are very few campgrounds in this part of Connecticut so you take what you can get and pay the high price. For us this is just a place to park while visiting family. Entrance/exit are very narrow and steep. You are warned to stop at the double stop signs every time when entering so that the owner check your car pass from her window. The seasonal sites are clean, a few could use a good washing. The playground has been updated from rusty to clean swings, seesaw, small wooden playhouse, plastic slide, etc., but it’s right by the busy curve of the road where everybody drives by to enter/exit. Pool was clean and a few chairs were provided. There are about 9 big rig back-in sites in the open area by the pool. They are not very level and your back end will be quite a bit higher than the front. The ground is covered with black cinders with some grass/weeds growing between sites and enough room to open your awnings. Stable electric and good water pressure. Wi-Fi and cable are not available in the big rig area. Never used the bathrooms/laundry. One evening there was a big, quick storm with high winds and rain. A large 6” diameter tree branch (from a tree on the property next door) fell on our roof. The park was a total mess of fallen branches and leaves. We ended up damage to the A/C and a gash in our roof that the owner helped us get patched. It took most of the next day of diligent clean up by the owners to get the grounds back in shape. We will come back here again since there really isn’t any other choice in the area. We camped at Branch Brook Campground in a Motorhome.

AA Royal Motel & Campground, North Tonawanda, New York

Date of Stay: July, 2012 - $48.00
Overall Rating:

Price reflects weekly rate. The owner is very nice and will go out of his way to help you if there is a problem. A few seasonal/full timers that are respectable looking. Very clean, neat, paved asphalt sites. The biggest problem is still the electric. Many times our voltage dropped to below 103 volts and our protection system shut down the motorhome. And we stayed shut down for hours running on inverter with no A/C until the voltage came back up above 103 volts. It was hot, in the 90s, and everybody was trying to run A/Cs full blast. The owner absolutely must work with NY Power to get this problem resolved before somebody’s motorhome or 5er has big problems. Kids are welcome but there is nothing here for kids to do. This is just a place to sleep while visiting Niagara Falls or taking care of business in the area. The price is high for what you get but still one of the lowest in the area. There is no rate increase for holidays or weekends. We camped at AA Royal Motel & Campground in a Motorhome.

Promised Land State Park, Greentown, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: July, 2012 - $29.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed in a pull-through site in Beechwood. Very narrow roads for big rigs and trees were not trimmed back well. All the sites are paved EXCEPT the pull throughs which are dirt/gravel/grass. Most sites are semi-level and short. Will not accommodate over about 30ft unless you are able to hang off the back of the site. The pull throughs while long are not very level. There are only three water faucets in this area so you need to come with a full water tank or be prepared to take a hike to fill your water containers. The dump station is across the main road by the boat launch. The bathrooms were clean and nicely set up for handicap accessibility. There was also a family (or companion) shower/toilet room for those needing extra assistance. Very shady sites so don't expect satellite to work. There is NO Verizon coverage in this area. Very quiet and the ranger told us bear have been spotted in the area and to be very careful with food and pets outside. Nothing for kids, no pool or playground. All you really get for $29 is 50 amp electric and a not very level site. Just too expensive a park for electric only. We camped at Promised Land State Park in a Motorhome.

Clute Park Campground (W W Clute Memorial Park), Watkins Glen, New York

Date of Stay: July, 2012 - $43.00
Overall Rating:

This park is mostly fully of seasonal or long term campers. Many of the sites have permanent wooden decks but are well kept. A few have small refrigerators and plastic storage compartments outside. The seasonals also take up the best sites that have a view across the street of Seneca Lake. There is no pool here. You need to cross the street into a nice park that has playground equipment, picnicking and day use to go swimming in the lake. The roped off area is very rocky and mucky (no sandy beach here). The bathrooms are older but clean. WiFi was pretty useless and would not stay connected. However we had been warned at check-in that they were having problems with the WiFi. Cable TV was fuzzy. Fortunately there are only a few small shade trees so no problems with our satellite TV. Easy biking distance to town and Watkins Glen SP. Expensive for what you got, but not much choice in town since the State Park can't accommodate big rigs. We camped at Clute Park Campground (W W Clute Memorial Park) in a Motorhome.

North Carolina State Fairgrounds Campground, Raleigh, North Carolina

Date of Stay: December, 2011 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed in the newer area by the horse arena. For $25 (we were told cash only) we got steady 50 amp service, water (pressure is very low) and sewer hook up. Most sites are extremely unlevel. We saw trailers and fifth wheels with their tongue on the ground and rear in the air trying to get level. Obviously whoever built/designed the area was not an RVer. The roads, made from large pieces of crushed rock, are very dusty. You need to be self-contained as there are no bathrooms/showers. No trees so satellite reception is good but it will be hot in the summer. There is no Wi-Fi signal available. Security personnel are nice, helpful and patrol the area frequently. There is absolutely nothing for kids (no playground, no pool, nothing) unless there is an event at the fairgrounds. No reservations available and this is a busy place on the weekends, so don’t expect to find a space available when there are big events. We camped at North Carolina State Fairgrounds Campground in a Motorhome.

Yates Family Camping, Harrisburg, North Carolina

Date of Stay: September, 2010 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

Large, open, level gravel lot near race track with easy in/out. Owned and operated by very nice couple who live on site and take a no nonsense approach to their park. Cash only – but you can’t beat $20 for non-race weeks. Parking is front to back. On one side you face your neighbor with about 10 feet of grass between and on the other side you can reach out and touch your neighbor when slides are extended. Good water pressure, steady electric, extremely clean. Couldn’t find any bathrooms or amenities other than full hook ups, so guess you have to be self contained. A good place for overnight stop or to stay when the races are in town (make your reservations early for race weekends). Can’t give a higher rating since there are no amenities but would have no problem staying here again. We camped at Yates Family Camping in a Motorhome.

Ripplin Waters Campground, Sevierville, Tennessee

Date of Stay: September, 2010 - $33.00
Overall Rating:

Lots of construction on road out front. It’s a real mess right now but should be much nicer when completed. When leaving you must turn right out of the campground and find someplace to make a U-Turn to get back to I-40. Lady in office was kind of sour and yelled at her son while registering us. Sites are cramped but fortunately the park wasn’t full so nobody was next to us. The full-time/seasonal sites are packed on top of each other and some are messy and dirty. Too steep to access river. Level sites, steady electric and water pressure. Small pool, looked clean but a long walk up hill from sites. Only one dumpster for the entire park which was also an uphill walk. Good for an overnight stop off I-40 but too far out and too much traffic and construction to battle to make this a good place to stay if you plan to go to Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, Dollywood or other attractions. Think we would try another place next time. We camped at Ripplin Waters Campground in a Motorhome.

Two Rivers Campground, Nashville, Tennessee

Date of Stay: September, 2010 - $46.00
Overall Rating:

Steady electric, okay water pressure, WiFi slow, hook ups at rear. Gravel roads, clean pool and bathroom. Sites very close together and towed vehicles park cross-wise in front of site. We were parked back to back with another 40’ motorhome and barely had 12” between bumpers. Small concrete pad with picnic table. Reserved satellite friendly pull-through, but was given back in under a tree (no satellite and no cable TV). Was told with a shrug that nothing else available for 50A, basically take it or leave it. Only have a dozen 50A sites, most are 30A. Easy access on/off highway, about 15 minutes to downtown. Constant hammering noise and trucks working at KOA park behind Two Rivers so couldn’t enjoy being outside very much. Okay for a few days stay, much less expensive than their neighboring parks but still over priced. We camped at Two Rivers Campground in a Motorhome.
