Holiday Travel Resort, Leesburg, Florida

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

We arrived for a 1 month stay in early December. Resort is set up for "Park Models" with a decent number of sites available for transients. Park is large (outer loop of roadway is over 2 miles), but each street is clearly marked. Most of the folks who stay here are long term snowbirds. There are so many opportunities in the park to participate in something you like - crafts, sports, cards, boating, etc. If you say you're bored and there's nothing to do, it's your own fault at HTR. Most transient sites have 30 amp service, but you might get lucky and find yours has 50 amp. Electric breakers are not on each meter post though. We popped our breaker and searched for 10 minutes before we found the box with it - 3 sites away. Depending on which section of the park you stay in you may be in the shade or in full sun. You pay your own electric if in for one month or longer; only .11 kwh which is not bad. Weather was so mild while we were here we stayed two more months. Even went kayaking from their marina in to Lake Harris (be aware, there ARE Alligators). Bathrooms were very clean. Laundry was inexpensive. Residents and staff were friendly. We camped at Holiday Travel Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Lake Harmony RV Park, Townsend, Georgia

Date of Stay: December, 2011 - $29.00
Overall Rating:

Very close to I-95, but not so close you're bothered by traffic. Extremely friendly staff - helped direct us in to a back-in site right on the lake, gave us dining suggestions, and tourist suggestions. Our site was rather spacious, but most seemed very close together. We were under pine trees on a firm sandy spot. Site came with a fire pit which we used nightly. Quite a few seasonal / yearly units on property. "Lake" is a small pond that you could kayak, or canoe on - wouldn't want to put a boat with motor - waste of fuel. We travel with 2 dogs (30 & 60 lbs) and were able to find places to "run" them without impeding on other campers - but there is no defined dog run. Lake Harmony offers propane service, not only to campers, but to anyone off the street. We will return when our travels bring us back this way. We camped at Lake Harmony RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

American Heritage RV Park, Williamsburg, Virginia

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

This was our 2nd visit to American Heritage. We arrived on Thanksgiving and stayed for 1 week. Sites are well spaced, most have a concrete pad to park on and comes with a picnic table. There are some "upgraded" sites that have patio tables and chairs, bbq grills and fire pits vs the standard wood picnic bench table and washer fire ring. American Heritage has a nice dog run, but it's situated so far off in a field that we'd run the dogs in the middle of field instead of hiking all the way over. There's a great nature trail that winds through the woods around the campground. We camped at American Heritage RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Normandy Farms, Foxboro, Massachusetts

Date of Stay: October, 2011 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

We arrived in October and stayed 1 month. When we arrived, we were advised that we would need to move to a different site for a "Holiday Weekend" and then could return to our original site. Still don't understand why they didn't put the weekender on the other site instead. During our stay, there was a freak snowstorm (pre Halloween) that resulted in a power outage in the area. All parts of the campground were without power for a day. The office was back on the grid just over 24 hours after, while the remainder of the campground had to spend 4 days without power. Other than that, we found the campground extremely clean, well maintained roads and very large, spacious sites. Their dog park (over 1 acre fenced area to let pets run) is outstanding. Roads are packed dirt, many large old oak, maple and pine trees throughout the property. While we were here, they closed off sections to run new utility lines (upgrading to 50 amp). We stayed during the slow season and really enjoyed how quiet it was. It was amazing to see how busy and organized they are though, when the masses descend as they did for Halloween. We camped at Normandy Farms in a Fifth Wheel.
