Candy Hill Campground, Winchester, Virginia

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $60.00
Overall Rating:

We have stayed at Candy Hill many times but this may be the last. Every time we stay here the park is a bit shabbier and the road a bit noisier. Candy Hill is very convenient from I-81 which must partly account for the fact that there are always lots of RVs here. (Short-term, long-term, and storage which really looks terrible.) The people who check you in are rude although the maintenance guys are nice. They charge an extra $10 if you want a premium site which has a grill and some cheap patio furniture. The large grassy areas which used to be immaculate are now ragged and weedy. The hook-ups work fine but the wi-fi is poor and the cable tv is terrible (it works but has few channels and the picture quality is poor). Really what used to be a pretty good rv campground is now a mediocre rv cg and they overcharge, IMHO. We camped at Candy Hill Campground in a Motorhome.

Mama Gertie's Hideaway Campground, Swannanoa, North Carolina

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $54.00
Overall Rating:

Mama Gertie's is a fantastic campground. It is in a fairly convenient location just off I-40 near Asheville and you can easily get to a huge number of attractions in less than an hour. (Asheville is less than 15 minutes.) It is built on a sloping mountainside property and at the very top there are premium sites with decks and amazing views. The regular sites lack the views but the CG itself is immaculate, attractive, and perfectly maintained. Even the washing machines in the laundry are new. The sites are level gravel and all the interior roads are paved. There are full hook-up sites and some E/W only. There are tent sites and cabins in their own little area and these do not seem to be as popular as the main CG. This is not a huge CG but there are enough different areas to be ok for walking dogs (and of course there are thousands of parks and trails nearby). Mama Gerties is not the kind of CG where there are a lot of kids - instead we saw a lot of older people with pets and upscale motorhomes. The landscaping is exceptional - lots of trees and birds and two different streams running through the property. Very enjoyable stay! We camped at Mama Gertie's Hideaway Campground in a Motorhome.

Less than 5 minutes away (in Swannona) is an excellent restaurant/bar called Native with a creative menu. There are also excellent dining options in Black Mountain which is slightly closer than Asheville and much easier to park.

R Shaefer Heard COE, West Point, Georgia

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

This is a huge COE campground. There are several camping loops and they have a different look depending on whether they are in the woods or on the water. There are no full hook-up sites but I think every site has electricity and water. The lake is beautiful and the mornings are full of birdsong. My only complaint was that we had accidentally chosen a site in the midst of a large family get-together and there were a dozen young kids running around having a great noisy time. We would have been happier in one of the more isolated sites. This CG is great for walks, jogging, dog-walking, and water activities like fishing and kayaking. It is very clean and well-maintained. We camped at R Shaefer Heard COE in a Motorhome.

Sarasota Lakes RV Resort , Sarasota, Florida

Date of Stay: January, 2018 - $50.00
Overall Rating:

This is not really an rv park. It is more of a park model community with a few rv spaces to rent. It is incredibly clean and has many amenities, such as a heated pool, shuffleboard, movie night, tennis, coffee & donuts, etc. It is right next to the airport and you do hear plenty of planes taking off and landing. The people who live here (mostly for the winter) love the place and are very friendly. We were here for a week to visit friends who live nearby and it was ideal. The cable hook-ups are weird but there are plenty of regular channels. We camped at Sarasota Lakes RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The Ringling museums and house are very close, about a mile and a half away. There are 2 circus museums, an art museum, a performing arts space, and the former house itself which is worth touring. (look at the view from the porch even if you don't tour the house) The restaurant at the Ringling, called Muse, is excellent.

Triple C's Campground & RV Park (Formerly Chattahoochee/Tallahassee W', Chattahoochee, Florida

Date of Stay: January, 2018 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

This is a very minimal rv park. It is located about 2 easy miles from I-10, so it is very convenient and yet far enough away not to hear the highway. It is small and has lots of trees, a pool, and a dog park. I think there might have been a kids' playground too. The interior roads are poor. The sites are not completely level but are good enough. The people who work here are helpful and pleasant. OK for an overnight stop. We camped at Triple C's Campground & RV Park (Formerly Chattahoochee/Tallahassee W' in a Motorhome.

Watsadler Campground, Hartwell, Georgia

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $13.00
Overall Rating:

Lake Hartwell has many COE and state park CGs. This one is open year-round. Watsadler is a pleasant CG with really generous sites, mostly spread out along the lake. Every site has a flat parking area plus a picnic table area and a built-in raised grill. There are power and water hook-ups but no sewer. Most people probably stay here for water-related activities like fishing and boating. We were just passing through so we appreciated our quiet site on the water under many trees. One comment: if you are just looking for an overnight stop, this CG is a long way from 85. The roads are fine but it's a good 20 or 25 minutes. We camped at Watsadler Campground in a Motorhome.

Wytheville KOA, Wytheville, Virginia

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $50.00
Overall Rating:

This CG is nice, but it is a KOA. So the sites are close and there is more attention to family-friendly amenities than to natural beauty. They offer bowling, a huge amount of amusement games (like Chuck E Cheese), fresh pizza (looked scrumptious) and scooped ice cream. We had FHUs that worked perfectly plus cable, plus wi-fi. The location is convenient from both 81 and 77. The staff was efficient and very pleasant. As an overnight stop this CG was excellent. We camped at Wytheville KOA in a Motorhome.

Green Lakes State Park Campgrounds, Fayetteville, New York

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

This state park CG is as nice as a CG can be. The Pinewoods loop is new and has excellent full hook-ups and level pads (most or all are concrete - not sure about the ones nestled in the woods). The only negative thing is that, if you are using the CG as a stop-over, it is far from the interstate on a convoluted route. The park has hiking trails and a large "beach" with a lake. There is also a nature center. Ideal for walking, jogging, walking your dog, flying a kite, or having a picnic. Just a lovely well-maintained state park with lots of trees and lots of green space. We camped at Green Lakes State Park Campgrounds in a Motorhome.

Streetsboro / Cleveland SE KOA, Streetsboro, Ohio

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $37.00
Overall Rating:

This park is highly rated on RV park reviews but I'm not sure why. It is really an average CG. My review may be biased because we stayed here over a long holiday weekend and the place was jammed. Every site was taken and mostly by trailers with Mom, Dad, 3 kids and 2 dogs. Also, the section of the CG where we stayed is built over a spring and it had rained a lot recently so the spring caused the entire section to be a huge mud pit. All of the nice spring grass was underwater and you could not walk around without getting your shoes soaked. The CG is well-organized and has plenty of staff. There are some new features (swimming pool, cabins) and some things are not so new (machines in laundry are very tired). On a crowded weekend, the campsites are very close and some are hard to get in and out of - the poor guy with the new fifth wheel across from us tried a dozen times before he could back in. Other sites have much easier access and if the CG isn't busy, there is ample space. If you are looking for a decent CG with amenities like full hook-ups, cable (old cable and terrible picture), pool, CG store with ice cream and homemade fudge (absolutely delicious), this is a fine spot. We camped at Streetsboro / Cleveland SE KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

For us, the best nearby attraction was Cuyahoga Valley National Park. This relatively new national park has a number of fine attractions. The Ohio and Erie Canal, which has great historical importance, is no longer in use but there is a lengthy towpath for cycling/walking. There are over a hundred miles of hiking trails, a gorgeous waterfall, and a refurbished passenger train. We were happy to find such an excellent resource so close to Cleveland/Akron/Canton.

Big Bone Lick State Park, Union, Kentucky

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

This is a very nice state park CG. We were only here overnight so did not hike any of the trails or see the bones. The sites are paved but not very level. The park is about 10 very hilly and windy miles off I-71. There is 30 amp power and water at every site. Dump station on the way out. Lots of trees, and sites are not close except for a few right by the pool/bathhouse. Well-maintained and probably jammed on busy weekends. I don't know if there is much to see/do in this area but this is a pleasant state CG for a stopover. We camped at Big Bone Lick State Park in a Motorhome.

Cullman Campground, Cullman, Alabama

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $24.00
Overall Rating:

This is a perfectly ok park for an overnight stay. It is very close to the interstate although the roads are narrow and windy. The campground itself is well-maintained but about half of it is devoted to permanent trailers and some of them are in poor condition. The owners are super-nice.

Camp Lakewood Campground & RV Park, Effingham, Illinois

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

This is a fine little CG a couple of miles off interstate 57. It is situated along a small lake which seems to be popular for fishing. Our site was FHU and level. The cable was out and apparently has been for a while as the CG changes providers. There are lots of trees and the sites are spacious and spread out in a pleasantly scattered manner. We would definitely stop over again. We camped at Camp Lakewood Campground & RV Park in a Motorhome.

Madison KOA, De Forest, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

This is a well-managed but charmless KOA. It is very convenient to Hwy.
39 and reasonably close to Madison. (it took us 25-30 minutes) The maintenance is excellent. The sites are arranged in concentric arcs and all sites are full hook-up and pull-through. There is grass between the sites but it's pretty beat up from people driving on all the edges. The office is efficient and there is an ok laundry, a small camp store, and a nice kids' playground. We camped at Madison KOA in a Motorhome.

Ontonagon Township Park and Campground, Ontonagon, Michigan

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $23.00
Overall Rating:

This is a fantastic little town CG that we could not find. There is no physical address listed anywhere and our GPS sent us far, far away. If you can get there, you'll find a very cozy small CG right along the lake with water and electric (there's a dump but no sewer hook-ups). The office is staffed on a part-time basis. The upkeep is very good for a town facility that has probably been heavily used all summer. Porcupine Mntns Wilderness state park is only about 15 minutes away. There is a CG with electric-only in PMWSP but it is not as pleasant as this one. We camped at Ontonagon Township Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

Munising Tourist Park Campground, Munising, Michigan

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

This CG is located on the main road a couple of miles outside of Munising. It is a very convenient location for going on Pictured Rocks boat rides and accessing the western end of P.R. The CG itself is scruffy but adequate. We had full hook-ups and a great site right on the lake. There are plenty of potholes in the main road and the office seems to be staffed on a part-time basis.
