The RV Resort at Carolina Crossroads, Roanoke Rapids, North Carolina

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $1.00
Overall Rating:      

Finally got to use our Free Night card - stay five times, get 6th free. Past 4 times passing through, they've been full before we call to see if there's room. While they assured us there'd be plenty of sites the night we wanted, we still asked that they hold a site for us. We arrived after the office closed, but they did indeed have a site reserved for us - both with a notice on the door as well as a highway cone at the entrance to the site to keep others from just taking it. There is a lot of construction on the outer edge of the park going on, don't know if it's for them or something else. We'll see in the future. Dog park is awesome with a good sized area to let pup run around. Pool was open but we didn't use it - was "too hot" for us to go outside. Left early the next morning so didn't get to interact with staff in person on this visit. But we will be back again (if they have room when we want to stop). We camped at The RV Resort at Carolina Crossroads in a Truck Camper.

Epsom Valley Campground, Epsom, New Hampshire

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $21.00
Overall Rating:      

Arrived without a reservation on a Sunday afternoon and given choice of several sites; opting to take FHU alongside river. Campground is in trees - lots of pines and maples giving a very shady canopy above. The grounds and roads throughout are dirt and pine needle covered. A few TV air channels were picked up on antenna. Hookups on our site were a bit odd - sewer and electric were in one location while the water was 20-25 feet away. Electric service on our site was 30 amp. Water pressure was low so we filled our tanks and then used our pump. Voltage a bit low at 118. Campground is older and sites are varying is size and condition. Good number of long term/seasonals but place was quiet during the week. Staff and owners were fabulous; very personable and committed to making our stay enjoyable. During the first evening, we encountered a nuisance issue with a neighbor - nothing major but enough that we went to the office to advise owner. The owner promptly went and attended to the matter. The campground is situated along the banks of the Suncook River, a generally lazy, gentle river. There is beach access to play in the water or launch a kayak or float tube (better yet, put in up the road a piece and then exit at the campground). Fishing is also an option from the banks or in the river - bring your license. There's also a playground and a mini golf course for fun. The bathhouse is clean with pay showers (.25 for 5 minutes). Laundry has 2 new washers (1.50) and 2 dryers (1.00) and lots of paperback books to read or trade. There is a Safari area for groups and a Wilderness area for tents. A pavilion is used for weekend socials. We stayed on Passport. $21=½ price of FHU + $3 for electricity (no, not an a/c or heater charge, an electricity charge. Don't like their reasoning as I'm already paying extra for site vs w/e only price, and electricity is low voltage) Other than that, we like this place. Very quiet and relaxing for us. We camped at Epsom Valley Campground in a Truck Camper.

Timberland Acres RV Park, Trenton, Maine

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed before Memorial Day, so they offered a discounted price ($5 off high season rate). Site was way more than we needed, but it appears all their sites are very long and full hookup. 1 bathhouse for entire park - long walk from the general camping area. And their garbage / recycle bins were all the way to the front of the property; they did pick up trash at sites, but if you wanted to recycle, you had to transport it yourself. Sites had fire rings and picnic tables. We did not try their wifi as our cellular carrier had a good signal. We camped at Timberland Acres RV Park in a Truck Camper.

Blackwoods Campground (NPS Campground), Acadia National Park, Maine

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $15.00
Overall Rating:      

Nice campground in woods - sites are separated by trees and other natural vegetation. Sites are dirt / gravel and many are on a grade, requiring leveling blocks. We arrived midweek in shoulder season and were able to get in without a reservation. It is strongly suggested to have reservations from Father's Day through the end of September as Acadia is a very popular destination. There was a dump station on the way out of the campground - I can imagine a long line after busy weekends so if you don't need to dump, wait until your next destination. We camped at Blackwoods Campground (NPS Campground) in a Truck Camper.

Assateague Island National Seashore Campground, Berlin, Maryland

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $15.00
Overall Rating:      

There are 2 sections to the campground - beach and cove. We chose cove as we travel with a dog and wanted grass for him to run on. Sites are paved and back ins. Some sites overlook the marsh / cove, but there are great views no matter which site you take. The toilets are pit toilets but they were fairly clean. The area is teaming with wildlife - one evening we had 3 deer and 2 horses grazing in the grass behind our rig. Just watch your step because there is poo everywhere. All sites are without services, but there are dump stations on both loops with potable water. We camped at Assateague Island National Seashore Campground in a Truck Camper.

Cape Hatteras National Seashore, Cape Point Campground, Buxton, North Carolina

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

We arrived midweek early in the season so lots of sites to choose from. Site are in wide open field with paved roads and pads. Picnic tables and grills at every site but no fire rings (no fires permitted, just cooking fires on grills). Check in was self-service - choose a site, go back to building and fill out form and leave payment (NOTE: CASH ONLY - No checks, no one to make change in you're on Senior Pass (½ price). Sites are 90 degrees to roads so you end up driving on grass to fit on to site - if there's been rain, the grass will be rather wet. It was very windy while we were there and we had to change sites after a few days because the new wind direction kept blowing out the furnace pilot light. You are 1 ½ miles from Hatteras Light and there is a dump station w/potable water along that road. Campground is surrounded by dunes and marsh areas - no direct ocean view. Access to beaches is over ¾ miles depending on which section you head to and where in the campground you start. There are 2 types of bathhouses on the property. Larger buildings have toilets and sinks, while smaller buildings are showers (think tv show MASH type of showers). All COLD Water only. No hookups at sites but generators are allowed during the day. We camped at Cape Hatteras National Seashore, Cape Point Campground in a Truck Camper.

Access to beaches (off road ramps 43 & 44) are from the front of the campground - lots of road traffic on these beaches. For a quieter beach, head to the back section of the campground and follow the signs and path to the parking lot behind Loops J&K. No vehicles allowed - lots of closed sections of beach to public because of birds but still enough to enjoy your time; and seashells galore.

Big Meadows Campground (NPS Campground), Shenandoah National Park, Virginia

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $17.00
Overall Rating:      

We arrived mid-week during early season. told to drive through, find a site, put something or someone on it to hold it and come back to check-in to pay for it. Loops A&B do not permit generators, so we started with Loop C. I think A-E Loops are much newer than F-... as the site are much wider, and properly angled to the street for back in. Section F and on are pull-thous and seem to be placed a bit more hap hazardously. Our site had a picnic table which was chained to the ground so we couldn't move it which made us readjust our parking so we could have our stairs open out on to that section of the pad. There is also a fire ring with each site. Bathhouses have toilets and sinks and are throughout the park. Showers are located at the top of the hill near the main office and were $1.75 for a 5 minute shower (change machine just outside showers). Laundry was $1 each for washers and a quarter for 7 minutes in the dryer. Cell signal is very weak in the park and it's suggested you head towards the outdoor amphitheater to try to grab a signal from the towns in the valley. No hook ups and generator use is limited to 2 hrs in the morning and 3 at night. Tents have dedicated wooded areas with bear boxes as well as the option of taking an RV site. There is a dump station with potable water located between the turn off of Skyline Drive and the actual campground. Low season price is $17, peak season is $20. And 50% off for Senior Pass. We camped at Big Meadows Campground (NPS Campground) in a Truck Camper.

American Heritage RV Park, Williamsburg, Virginia

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $54.00
Overall Rating:      

We've stayed at American Heritage a few times over the past 7 years and have watched them grow in number of sites. Happily they are giving the same detail to all their sites, so if you were here for the first time, couldn't tell where the old ended and the new started. Roads are paved and sites are paved with pads and picnic tables so you don't step out in to the grass. There is a bit of grass between sites and they do ask you not to drive or park on the grass - the sites have a wider section of the paved area for parking toads or if you disconnect your rig from the truck. Bathrooms were clean and good water pressure in shower. Laundry has 4 washers and 4 dryers and all are $1.75/load. (did not use this trip) This is one of the more expensive parks we will stay at over the course of our 7 months on the road. While we were there in early April, they had already changed to "peak season" rates - my personal feeling is this was done too soon. There are other campgrounds closer to Colonial Williamsburg and the shopping outlets. I think they could wait until May to raise rates. The store has a few camper and food items but is mostly toys and gifts. Staff are friendly and I'm sure when we're back in the area, we'll stay here again because it's away from the hustle and bustle of town. We camped at American Heritage RV Park in a Truck Camper.

Shady Rest RV Park, Glasgow, Montana

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $32.00
Overall Rating:      

We concur with review of July 2015 as we had the same site. We arrived to be told there was only 1 site left and that it was small and in the trees. Since we knew there were no other sites in town, (as we had already checked with them and we were very tired of driving), said we'd take it. Not only were there trees on the site, they were extremely close together and had low branches. Needed 2 sets of eyes (one on either side of our rig) to back us in to make sure we missed them. In order to utilize our slide, we had to be back far enough which meant our stairs landed smack dab on top of the sewer connector of the unit next to us.

Bathhouse was not one I'd want to use. Toilet stalls did not have doors, instead shower curtains hung in each stall. Showers were cement floors and the floors and walls had black spots that I did not want to examine any further. We camped at Shady Rest RV Park in a Truck Camper.

Sagitawah RV Park, Whitecourt, Alberta

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

Were greeted as we were driving in, owner/manager was working on project near driveway so we didn't have to drive up to office and then search him out. He graciously advised rates and availability of site types and allowed us to drive around to decide on which site we'd like. Options were w/e back-in in trees or fhu pull-thus in open. We chose a back in. Note rate listed is converted to US, was 32 CN.
Campground roads are dirt. Pull-thus share utility posts which puts them close together on their hook up sides, but have large yards out their front doors. Most sites are utilitized by people working in the area, but we found the place quiet.
Our back in was narrow at the entrance but wide once in. Sites come with table and fire rings. Utilities are located at the front edge of the site, sometimes covered by shrubs so it takes a moment or two to find them. Our site was only a 15 amp plug (no problem for a truck camper); other sites offer 30 or 50 amps.
Playground for kids, decent laundry (3w/3d) and ok bathhouse. Wifi worked at our site as we were close to office. We camped at Sagitawah RV Park in a Truck Camper.

All Seasons Campground (formerly Countryboy Campground), Ninilchik, Alaska

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

Just a short drive from the Sterling Highway (3 miles), All Seasons (New owner 2015, formerly Country Boy), you'll find a quiet full hookup campground. 52 sites with 9 pull throughs. When they're not busy, back-ins are great as you can use the next site for your vehicle. Otherwise slideshows and awnings make for very narrow sites. Most of the time you can choose the site, but sometimes, the site is reserved (especially pull thrus). Sites are 30 amp. Also offers rental cabins. A few seasonal and monthly campers but most are a few days and gone.

Bathrooms & showers are clean, but not immaculate. Laundry room has several washers & dryers. Water pressure is good and plentiful. Our favorite feature is passport america is currently accepted the whole time they are open for business.

Gravel roads and sites. Park on an angle, not straight to woods behind. Most sites in sun, but some back-ins have morning shade. We camped at All Seasons Campground (formerly Countryboy Campground) in a Truck Camper.

Tolsona Wilderness Campground , Glennallen, Alaska

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $18.00
Overall Rating:      

If you're looking for campsites like state parks frequently offer, but with the extra services of w/e & easy access to dump station, then Tolsona is the place for you. 90 + sites, all along the creek - there are just a handful of 50 amp sites, the rest are 30 amp or no electric (tent). But everyone is along the creek! First you drive in to the campground (over 1/2 mile from highway). good dirt road, trees cleared along sides and overhead for big rigs. Most sites are back ins - and while the sites are spacious in width, some access points are tight for the long rigs. Sites come with fire rings and picnic tables. Bathrooms are ok - 2 stalls each m&w. Showers are individual rooms. Dump station was clean. Can image a long line if a caravan or crowd was there. Cleared roadways and walking paths throughout the park - and for the adventurous, there's a path to a "mud volcano" - ask at the office for details. Wifi was available on office deck, but our Verizon wifi pulled in enough of a signal for us to use our own.
Biggest plus to campground for this writer was the older gentleman who checked us in - he was an absolute joy and has a very quick, slightly sharp, wit. Biggest downside for us was the mosquitos. Early June and they were thick as thieves. Bug spray and face nets worked. Price reflects Passport - offered early and late season. We camped at Tolsona Wilderness Campground in a Truck Camper.

Tags Gas, Food, and RV Park, Watson Lake, Yukon

Date of Stay: May, 2016 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

AKA "Sign Post Services RV". Located behind the gas station right across the street from the Sign Post forest, this campground offers full hook up and access to showers, bathroom and laundry. Dirt and gravel roadways to sites, hook ups were designed to be shared, but with bigger rigs and slide outs that would be very tight. There were not a lot of units in attendance when we were there, so we were able to take the full area between posts.
Gas station had a decent sized grocery store as well as cafe. A quiet stop even though the Al/Can is just the other side of the building. We camped at Tags Gas, Food, and RV Park in a Truck Camper.

K'san Campground, Hazelton, British Columbia

Date of Stay: May, 2016 - $22.00
Overall Rating:      

A few miles off the primary highway, but the countryside is fantastic (and I love the First Nation Totem Poles in the area). Sites options are either hook up or dry camp. Gravel pads with picnic tables. Grass areas were overgrown with dandilions and grass. Lots of overgrown trees, especially along roadway behind office (where most dry camp sites were) - recommend you do not take your rig through that area is you like your paint.
Bath house was an older facility, we did not use them - they did have 1 washer & dryer in a laundry room.
Staff was friendly and helpful.
We took a dry site that backed on the to Stikine River - could see evidence of a large animal having walked through the deep grass behind our site, but we did not see any during our stay. The views of the Hazelton mountains are all around, STUNNING!
They had a dump station and potable water for those that chose to dry camp. We camped at K'san Campground in a Truck Camper.

Hinton / Jasper KOA, Hinton, Alberta

Date of Stay: May, 2016 - $42.00
Overall Rating:      

Park is located close to town of Hinton (<5K), paved driveway to start, then gravel after crossing 1 lane wood bridge. Wide variety of sites from tents to limited hook ups to elite full hook up (with gas grill & patio furniture). Appreciate the escort to our site. Sites are open and the views (especially to the west) are spectacular.
Bathrooms and showers were clean (they had repainted a week earlier). Good water pressure - we liked that the main building showers were individual rooms, outside the rest of the bathroom area.(only main building facilities were available during our stay). Laundry was clean and working. (4 wash, 4 dry)
Staff & owners were awesome. I had a laundry issue that we mentioned to the front desk - within 3 minutes they had someone attending to it! Now that's great service and attention.
Office also has groceries, rv supplies and souvenirs.
Great off-leash Dog Park with several agility devices to keep the pups happy - this area was a lot larger than any other KOA dog park I've experienced - we had room to throw a ball allowing our 65 lb pet room to run.
We stayed here out of necessity (medical issue while traveling) and were very happy with our stay. We'd stay here again if only KOA's didn't charge so much..... We camped at Hinton / Jasper KOA in a Truck Camper.
