Brook N Wood Family Campground, Elizaville, New York

Date of Stay: September, 2011 - $24.00
Overall Rating:

We spent 2 weeknights in late September here in a 33 foot rig at a full-hookup site (electric, water and sewer). Since we were here very late in the season and it rained on both days, we didn’t have a chance to get a good sense of campground life. However, we can report this: very friendly, helpful owners. Had lots of information about the area in the camp store; discovered that FDR’s home was nearby. That was a great adventure for a rainy day. Clean, well kept campground. We were on a site high on a hill; adequate room. Had a big open space for dogs. We camped at Brook N Wood Family Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tuxbury Pond RV Resort, South Hampton, New Hampshire

Date of Stay: September, 2011 - $24.00
Overall Rating:

We camped here for a few night in late September, in a 33 foot rig. Park has full-hookup sites with electric, water and sewer. The campsites are a nice size. Staff was very friendly. Dog waste disposal receptacles are conveniently located throughout the park. There are lots of facilities for kids. This is primarily a seasonal campground and most of the sites are very well maintained. It’s a very big campground. There are no special paths for the dog, but plenty of roads for walking. The dumpsters are located too far away from the campsites. We noted that most people drove their trash to them. A big con: the ¾ mile entry road is in VERY bad condition. It’s so full of potholes that you can’t avoid hitting them. We were concerned about how it would affect our RV suspension. It’s unfortunate, but we cannot recommend this campground due to the condition of entry road. We camped at Tuxbury Pond RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Mt Desert Narrows Camping Resort, Bar Harbor, Maine

Date of Stay: September, 2011 - $34.00
Overall Rating:

We camped here with a 33 foot rig. This park has full-hookup sites with electric, water and sewer. Spent a week here in late September while visiting Acadia National Park; great location for this. The free shuttle bus stops here too. Excellent restaurants close by. Sites are averaged size. Most have some view of the Frenchman’s bay. Both full sun and shaded sites are available. We had a full sun site which allowed us to enjoy the incredible night sky on Mt Desert Island. Nice laundromat with ample machines. Access roads were wide enough. The campground was very big so there were plenty of roads for walking the dog. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. We were given a 10 minute orientation of the area when we checked in. Bathroom facilities were average but very clean. Staff was frequently seen tending to bathrooms and campground. We recommend this campground. We camped at Mt Desert Narrows Camping Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Meadowbrook Camping Area, Phippsburg, Maine

Date of Stay: September, 2011 - $46.00
Overall Rating:

We camp with a 33 foot rig at full-hookup sites with electric, water and sewer. Spent a long weekend in mid-September here as a stopping point on our way to Acadia National Park. Large campsites, but not level. Campsites are available in full sun or shade. Kayaks and canoes can be rented for Beaver Pond on the grounds. By September, much of the pond was overgrown with vegetation, but still, kayaking on it was enjoyable. The campground had a lot of tent camping which provided a lot of woodsy trails to walk the dog. They have an onsite restaurant with two delightful owners. We bought homemade breads and purchased fresh vegetables and herbs there. What an unexpected bonus! The pool was still open in late September. It looked nice, but we didn’t test the waters. We usually follow driving directions from campground web sites for the last few miles. These took us right through the center of Bath ME and the last few miles of road were bad; follow your GPS or Google directions instead. Explore Popham State park at the edge of the peninsula along the ocean if you are here for a few days. The beach near the fort allows dogs. There is also a separate beach for swimming. We weren’t in love with this campground, but it’s well-kept and is a decent place to stay for a night or two. We camped at Meadowbrook Camping Area in a Fifth Wheel.

Sandy Beach Resort, Contoocook, New Hampshire

Date of Stay: September, 2011 - $33.00
Overall Rating:

We camp with a 33ft fifth wheel at full-hookup sites with electric, water and sewer. We try to provide quick, objective reviews of campgrounds. Spent 3 weeknights in mid-September here. Getting to the office can be tricky with a larger RV. We stopped at the sign near the entrance (thanks to a previous review) and walked to the office. We recommend doing this, or call office when you arrive, or you won’t be too pleased. Staff was friendly at check in and offered to lead us to our site. We declined and found it easily. The beach area on Rolf Pond (very large: we thought it was a lake), was very nice and clearly well kept. Lake water was clean and very clear. Watch out for the large turtle. Fishing from the dock was good. Mostly shaded sites. Our site was a pull through and it was a good size. Sites are irregularly shaped so it doesn’t feel crowded. Seasonal sites were very well kept. Since we were here off-season, mid-week, we met mostly seasonal campers who were very friendly. There is a small laundromat, the web site doesn’t say that. We learned about it from a staff member. There weren’t separate dog trails, but the park is so big that we had plenty of area to walk. Roads are narrow. Cable TV was only available to seasonal campers; too bad. There were only a few stations available with the antenna. We explored the White Mountains from this location; it was a little too far. Although we were here in the fall, we got the sense that this would be a great place to visit in the summer. We recommend this campground. We camped at Sandy Beach Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Riverview Campground, Lake George, New York

Date of Stay: September, 2011 - $47.00
Overall Rating:

We camp with a 33’ft fifth wheel at full-hookup sites with electric, water and sewer. We try to provide quick, objective reviews of campgrounds. Spent three nights, during a BUSY tourist weekend in mid-September, 2011. Friendly, helpful owners. We hadn’t booked a river-front site, but when we got there, we wanted one. The owner took the time to show us several options which were available. We chose a riverfront site. The hookups were positioned so that the rear of our 5th wheel with the big window could face the river; we were delighted. We were able to fish right from our site! They rented kayaks and float tubes, but the river was running too fast for us to try them. The campground was well cared for. It’s conveniently located to visit Lake George. Good security considering it’s close to a major road including an automated security gate. Clean campground; seasonal camper sites were well kept. The road along the river was a good dog walking route, especially since there weren’t many tent campers there this time of year. Campsites were small but level. Park is near a busy road so we heard the traffic (offset by convenience of location). Trash dumpsters were located at the far end of the campground. We understand why, but there was trash strewn around the dumpster area. We recommend this campground. We camped at Riverview Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Kayuta Lake Campground, Forestport, New York

Date of Stay: September, 2011 - $37.00
Overall Rating:

We camp with a 33’ft fifth wheel at full-hookup sites with Electric, water and sewer. We try to provide quick, objective reviews of campgrounds. Spent two days here in September 2011. Level, average-sized campsite. Friendly staff. On Kayuta Lake with boat launch, dock for seasonal boats, and a nice swimming beach. Kayak rental. Mostly shaded lots. Seasonal campsites were well kept. Small trash receptacles all around the campground, which were emptied regularly. Bathroom facilities were nice. Nice road to walk dog near the “rally field” and pavilion. Lots of recreational facilities. Roads were narrow; difficult to maneuver RV. If you have a spare day, visit the Pixley Falls State park. We recommend this campground. We camped at Kayuta Lake Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Spruce Row Campsite & RV Resort, Ithaca, New York

Date of Stay: August, 2011 - $31.00
Overall Rating:

Request full-hookup sites with Electric, water and sewer. We try to provide quick, objective reviews of campgrounds. We spent a week here around Labor Day, September 2011. Pros: Friendly staff who seemed to take good care of short term maintenance issues. They very quickly responded to an electrical breaker problem we had. The dog walking paths were the best – a maze of long paths cut through a meadow, and into nearby woods. Kids seem to love the play areas and the hayrides. There was live entertainment in the common facility during Labor Day weekend. Great location for exploring Lake Cayuga, the area wineries, the town of Ithaca, and don’t miss Taughannock Falls. Cons: Lake was overgrown with vegetation. Pool was used a lot, but it looked in serious disrepair. Very small campsites. We were crowded up against neighboring campers. Narrow roads . No laundry facilities. Many of the seasonal camper sites looked like junkyards; we guess there aren’t many rules. This is an old, large campground in need of some serious capital improvements. We do NOT recommend this one. We camped at Spruce Row Campsite & RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Branches of Niagara Campground and Resort, Grand Island, New York

Date of Stay: August, 2011 - $53.00
Overall Rating:

Request full-hookup sites with Electric, water and sewer. We try to provide quick, objective reviews of campgrounds. Visited for a few days in late August 2011. Took in the “falls” sights of course, but don’t miss the Beaver Island State Park while you are on Grand Island. Pros: This is a new campground, only two years old. The facilities and the condition of the campground reflect that. Cabins (although we didn’t see one inside) are beautiful and most overlook the campground lake. The lake was good for fishing (catch and release) and kayaking. The facilities for kids are great – a pool, zip line rides, hayrides, a beach at the lake, activity center, sand volley ball… Landscaping is beautiful and natural. Lots of path for walking the dog. Small trash receptacles (for recyclables too) all around the campground, which were emptied regularly. Cons: a little pricey. We recommend Branches of Niagara. It’s one of the nicest campgrounds we’ve stayed at. We camped at Branches of Niagara Campground and Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Brookside Beach Campground, Westfield, New York

Date of Stay: August, 2011 - $34.00
Overall Rating:

Request full-hookup sites with Electric, water and sewer. We try to provide quick, objective reviews of campgrounds. Brookside is on a cliff overlooking Lake Erie. Stayed there for a few days in late August 2011. Pros: Easy to find, level lots, reasonably priced. Cons: No pool, Nice beach but not easily accessible: Had to climb very carefully down a long set of steps. Couldn’t easily enjoy the view of the lake, except from very few sites. Did not check out the bathroom facilities. Recommendation: Decent place to stay for a night or two. We camped at Brookside Beach Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Virginia's Beach Campground, North Springfield, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: July, 2011 - $46.00
Overall Rating:

Request full-hookup sites with Electric, water and sewer. We try to provide quick, objective reviews of campgrounds. Visited for three weekdays, the hottest of the summer in July 2011. Pros: Incredible location on a bluff overlooking Lake Erie. Sunsets are fabulous. Common area on the edge of the bluff allows everyone to enjoy the view. Has a private, albeit small and stony beach, but you can swim there and it’s accessible. A dock for boat launching. They rent kayaks. Friendly staff. Remote location – near farmland makes for nice walking and cycling. Campsites are large. Full hookups sites available in sun or partial shade. Free camp-provided Internet service is good. Restrooms are average. Cons: Water pressure poor. No pool, but then who needs one when you can swim in the lake! Verizon cell phone service poor. Shaded areas have a lot of mosquito's. We recommend Virginia’s beach. The cons are vastly outweighed by the location. It’s hard to find waterfront campground along Lake Erie let alone one that isn’t crowded. This one is a diamond in the rough. We camped at Virginia's Beach Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Kalyumet Campground, Lucinda, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: May, 2011 - $41.00
Overall Rating:

Request full-hookup sites with electric, water and sewer. We try to provide quick, objective reviews of campground. Stayed at Kalyumet 3 weekdays in June 2011 while visiting Cook Forest State Park. Pros: The grounds were well cared for. Wonderful smell of pine in the air. Large shaded campsites. Didn’t use the pool but it was quite large and looked in great condition; had a life guard. Checked out the shower/ restrooms - immaculate. Easy to find. Friendly staff. Close to Cook Forest State Park and Clarion River. Nice trails; good for dog walking. Decent Wi-Fi. Verizon Cell phone service worked. Cons: No cable and couldn’t get any TV or radio stations with our antenna. Pond not useful; overgrown with vegetation. We recommend Kalyumet.
