Gordonia-Alatamaha State Park, Reidsville, Georgia

Date of Stay: January, 2017 - $14.00
Overall Rating:      

I stumbled upon this Georgia State Park just outside Reidsville. It's something of a quirky place, only 29 campsites, a real family recreation/picnic grounds with a miniature golf feature and an 18 hole golf course adjacent to the campground. It's a clean, quiet campground on a small pond. The host was affable, helpful and kept the grounds (i.e. bathrooms) clean. This would have been a full 5 star rating had there been a working washing machine! The low rate was a special 50% off discount they were running during January. We camped at Gordonia-Alatamaha State Park in a Motorhome.

Highlands Hammock State Park, Sebring, Florida

Date of Stay: January, 2016 - $24.00
Overall Rating:      

Oldest campground in Florida. Campground is very popular, difficult to get a reservation however probably necessary. The sites are clean but close together, most are level although ours needed leveling. Plenty of trails for walking, biking and geocaching. Our stay was during several days of rain, limiting our ability to fully utilize the area. We camped at Highlands Hammock State Park in a Motorhome.

Ocala National Forest / Salt Springs Rec Area, Fort McCoy, Florida

Date of Stay: January, 2016 - $19.00
Overall Rating:      

This is the only campground in the Ocala National Forest that has full hookups (water, electricity, sewer). It's a great place to see manatees, do a little hiking, boating, and biking. We did some kayaking and got very close to the manatees. Be aware though, there is little (or no) cell coverage! There's some small coverage from Verizon, none from ATT. There is wifi at the registration area. with many campers use. Campsites were spacious, level asphalt and there is a primitive area for, mostly, tents. The campground is run by a private concern. We camped at Ocala National Forest / Salt Springs Rec Area in a Motorhome.

Fishermen's State Park and Campground, Narragansett, Rhode Island

Date of Stay: April, 2015 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed 2 nights, had to reserve via Reserve America that added an extra $9 fee! The campground is making improvements in 3 out of the 4 areas (more electric sites). It was cold and windy (they have a wind turbine that does make some noise, but less than traffic) and the start of the season. Regulars who come here say that this is quite a destination campground and they needed to reserve a year ahead if you want to come during the summer period. The site we had was level, ground cover, elec. and water. Not too far from beach and ocean activities. Recommend! We camped at Fishermen's State Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

About half a mile walking distance there's a tavern. A beach is about a mile away that you can walk to. Plenty to see and do if you're willing to drive a short distance.

Charlestown Breachway, Charlestown, Rhode Island

Date of Stay: April, 2014 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

This is an open area parking. Since it was off season only a few campers were here so it was pretty quiet. Extensive beach for walking, fishing, and small boating could be seen. We had cold evenings, nice sunsets and sunrises. There are no amenities so it's dry camping. Good restaurants nearby. We stayed 3 days. We camped at Charlestown Breachway in a Motorhome.

Long Point Park Campground (Brevard County Park), Melbourne Beach, Florida

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

This is a county campground and could use a face lift. But it was nice enough for us to stay more days. It's an especially nice place if you enjoy fishing. We don't fish but did appreciate the many types of birds. The National Pelican Refuge is nearby. We camped near water and the only disappointment was the unusual swarm of insects one day: fruit fly like. People who have been here for years had never seen this before, just our luck! There isn't much to do in the campground and we needed to travel some to get to a restaurant for a dinner one night. We stayed over a weekend and found it to be a quiet site. We camped at Long Point Park Campground (Brevard County Park) in a Motorhome.

Faver-Dykes State Park, St Augustine, Florida

Date of Stay: January, 2013 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

Dirt roads, quiet while we were here. Trails are open and wide, and short. This campground is what it claims to be, a respite "for those who want to get away from the crowds". We camped at Faver-Dykes State Park in a Motorhome.

Reed Bingham State Park, Adel, Georgia

Date of Stay: December, 2012 - $28.00
Overall Rating:      

What a gem! We found this without looking really. We were here at the end of December, and it was quiet. Very spacious grounds, walking trails. Bathrooms could use an upgrade but they were clean and the shower had hot water. We were impressed at how well kept the place was. We stayed an extra day because we like it a lot. People were helpful, although the WiFi was only near the registration house. Wouldn't mind returning. We camped at Reed Bingham State Park in a Motorhome.

Greenbelt Park, Greenbelt, Maryland

Date of Stay: December, 2012 - $8.00
Overall Rating:      

Stayed one night, $8 with Senior Pass. Very nice campground, good hosts. This is not a well known campground. Right near highway. Hiking trails which are kept up. No amenities. Helicopters stopped around 7:30. Bathrooms were heated (no showers), hot water. But, as others have indicated, they are in need of an upgrade. Water available. We will probably stay here on our way back to MA because it's really like camping without the frills. We camped at Greenbelt Park in a Motorhome.

Wilderness Lake Campground & Resort, Willington, Connecticut

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

Stayed one night here.  Paid $25 cash, they honored a Good Sams card. It's a slow time and there were sites near the small lake.  Owner was helpful and seems to be trying to improve conditions noted in previous reviews.  There aren't many amenities but if camping is all you want this is pretty good.  I'd return for more days. We camped at Wilderness Lake Campground & Resort in a Motorhome.

Field and Stream RV Park, Brookline, New Hampshire

Date of Stay: August, 2012 - $38.00
Overall Rating:      

As others have noted, this campground is predominantly comprised of senior, mature campers.  And being ones ourselves we felt fairly at home!  With that caveat though, there's not much to actually do once you're here, unless you have mobility beyond the camper.   There is a lake about a mile away for kayaking or canoeing but not for swimming.  It's a quiet place (almost peaceful), the sites are level, the grounds clean and well-groomed and new restrooms and showers are almost finished.  If you like time to yourself to read, perhaps take a little walk or stroll now and then, then this could be a great destination.  We're still in the beginnings of our RV travels (this place was near an extended family gathering) and are sensing that we're not quite ready for RV Park life, but it's a nice environment to come to once in a while.  Thus, our lower rating says as much about where we are in our campground searches, not to cast aspersions.   We camped at Field and Stream RV Park in a Motorhome.

Chamberlain Lake Campground, Woodstock, Connecticut

Date of Stay: August, 2012 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a private campground that we thought we'd try.  Sites are pretty close together; wooded/shaded and roomy enough but closer than we would have preferred.  It seems like most of the campers are seasonal or year round.  The roads are sand and gravel.  Cable dost an extra $5 per day. Karaoke is offered on weekends.  Restrooms and showers are clean.  The downside for us was that there was not much to do.  We were here during a few rainy days. There's a small beach on the lake, fishing is possible and they have boat rentals.  No trails for walking.  So this is more of a destination place for some quiet time and it is successful at that.  The new owners are helpful, pleasant and keep up a good campground. We camped at Chamberlain Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

Wells State Park, Sturbridge, Massachusetts

Date of Stay: July, 2012 - $12.00
Overall Rating:      

 Just a couple of miles off the Mass Pike (Interstate 90) this state park offers a quiet setting on Walker  Pond.  The wooded surroundings give way to a number of hiking trails.  The place is well kept up, restrooms clean, paved and gravel roads for easy access, friendly staff. The grounds are well taken care of. Will return! We camped at Wells State Park in a Motorhome.

Lake Dennison Recreation Area, Winchendon, Massachusetts

Date of Stay: May, 2012 - $12.00
Overall Rating:      

The campground was crowded, but it didn't feel like it.  We camped over part of Memorial Day.  Because of the holiday we weren't able to get it for the whole weekend - only Sunday and Monday nights.  However, as most people left on Monday we were able to move to a location with a view of the lake.  There are no hookups, only dry camping.  They do have an $8 handling fee. The setting is peaceful and the sites are spacious.  There is some noise from traffic, but it's not overwhelming.   We camped at Lake Dennison Recreation Area in a Motorhome.
