Grande Cache Municipal Campground, Grande Cache, Alberta

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $27.00
Overall Rating:

A bit hidden behind the ball fields and other municipal properties. In the woods and very quiet. 15A power at one post, water on another. Sewer port was hidden in the weeds. To find a level section I had to either use an extension hose and power cord or use blocks. For me it was easier to use the extensions. Everything worked. The back in site we had was a little odd. It was actually a pair of sites with a common entrance in the form of a Y. It worked for us as we were traveling with our neighbors. It was fine for an overnight and we would stay there if passing through again. We camped at Grande Cache Municipal Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Trails West RV Park, Shelby, Montana

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

This is a small RV park located directly behind a hotel that consists of a half dozen pull through sites ringed by back-in sites; all the utilities worked. There was some slope to the ground but it wasn't hard to get level. Check-in is at the hotel desk. Access to the campground is via a narrow potholed road from the adjacent grocery store parking lot. A mainline RR track is across the highway from the hotel and, while there are no whistle crossings, the ground rumbles a bit as long freights pass through Shelby day and night. The campground is convenient for an overnight stop while passing through. The hotel offers a buffet style breakfast for $6. We camped at Trails West RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Townsite Campground (Parks Canada), Waterton Lakes National Park, Alberta

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

Last year's wildfire destroyed the trees to the west of Waterton Townsite including the Crandall Mountain Campground. The firefighters did a heroic effort protecting the Townsite, campground, and Prince of Wales hotel. Most trails are closed, but the town is open as was this campground and it was about 85% full when we were there and at that time 1st come campers could easily find as spot even late in the afternoon. The Sept 2017 fire has likely discouraged some from visiting, yet the campground remains in an incredibly scenic area. The campsites were immaculate and well spaced and the utilities worked well. The only odd thing is that the sewer inlet is placed nearly dead center in the paved pad meaning you had to park forward or behind to access it possibly requiring an extension to the power cable as in our case. I definitely would stay here again. We camped at Townsite Campground (Parks Canada) in a Travel Trailer.

Billings KOA, Billings, Montana

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $53.00
Overall Rating:

This campground is advertised as the world's first KOA opened in 1962. It is obvious that they plow money back into the property. It is very well maintained, the grass is well manicured and the cottonwoods and other trees are mature. The staff is eager to please. There is a centerpiece miniature golf, pool, hot tub, bbq porch, kitchen area, laundry & cable TV. Located reasonably off the highway and along the bank of the Yellowstone River, the direction signs are hard to miss. This may be the best and one of the largest campgrounds in the area. With all that being said, it is expensive @ $53 with the KOA Kard 10% discount for a W/E only site. About 2/3 of the sites are narrow diagonal pull-throughs. The evenings are a hubbub of people and noise, but does get very quiet after dark. The narrow roads are encroached by parked tow and guest vehicles making an exit from some sites difficult at times. They appear to fill the sites in an alternating pattern so if it isn't near capacity, you may not have a very close neighbor. The dump station is convenient on entry, but requires a tour of the park to return to it. We camped at Billings KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Wild Bill's RV & Trailer Park, Boise City, Oklahoma

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

Small RV park across from city park and ball field and adjacent to Cimarron Heritage Center. 5 blocks from court house. Very small town. Called to check availability and a lady called back in 10 minutes. On arrival I looked for an office or manager. A 7 yo girl showed me where the envelopes and slot was. Cash only. Self serve site selections. Full hookups worked well, water spigot is shared with neighbor. Some had a rustic shaded picnic table. Sites are mowed grass with vestiges of gravel roads. Basic but well maintained. Small putt-putt on the grounds. RR tracks near by but never saw a train. Great quite place for an overnight and would definitely stay again if passing that way. We camped at Wild Bill's RV & Trailer Park in a Travel Trailer.

Limon KOA, Limon, Colorado

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $42.00
Overall Rating:

Located off the interstate, traffic was visible but barely noticeable when out side. Good for an overnight but as many KOAs on the pricey side. The couple who manages the property are top notch and there was a young man helping at the counter, making pizza and delivering to those who ordered. Water pressure was high so you will need a regulator, voltage was good despite the hot weather and all the ACs running. Cable TV and WiFi were good. We camped at Limon KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Elkhorn Campground, Frankfort, Kentucky

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $33.00
Overall Rating:

Elkhorn is well off the highway surrounded by what appear to be Kentucky horse ranches and a golf course and was very quiet overnight. Reception was friendly and as we were looking for an overnight site and didn't want to unhook, the lady asked for our total length and then consulted her list. They have measured each site and have a binder of photos showing the dimensions of each so that we were able to pick the one that looked best for our needs. A recent heavy rain had filled the creek that runs along the property to capacity and it was running fast only feet behind our site. I checked it on arrival and again before retiring to be sure it wasn't still rising. Despite the heavy rain, the grounds were not soft or muddy. Most of the sewer and cable sites were occupied by seasonal campers, the balance of the sites along the creek were W/E only and there is a dump near the exit. Some of the older trees appear sketchy and a large limb had fallen causing major damage to a trailer. I will return here if we were to come this way again in the future. We camped at Elkhorn Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Mile-Away Campground, Henniker, New Hampshire

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

The name comes from that this place is 1 mile off of Hwy 9/202. Aside from the sign at the entrance, there is no clue that this place is here as it is buried in the woods near a small lake. This is primarily a seasonal campground and about 10% of the sites are set aside for short term visitors. Of these, I noted only 2 pull through sites and there is a small tenting area as well. We were presented with one of those full color maps at registration showing our site, but had difficulty locating it as there were no signs pointing to which numbers were at each junction and I simply missed the turn. Someone on a golf cart noticed we were lost and led us back to where our site was. Similarly, there was a stop sign with the register here notice, but until you found the office at the far end, you felt you were going to someone's home. Since most are permanent seasonal residents, signs are not needed for them. That being said, this is a very nicely laid out campground in the hills and woods. We were there mid week and most of the seasonals were away, so it was a very quiet evening. Overall, this is a very nice campground and I wouldn't hesitate to return. The hills and trees prevent satellite and OTA reception. We camped at Mile-Away Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Mountain View Campground, Dixfield, Maine

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

Having some delays in Bangor, I had considered stopping earlier than planned, but we continued on to Dixfield anyway. Calling ahead, the lady said that the office would likely be closed on arrival but to just pick a site and come in the next morning. We don't usually arrive after dark, but this was easy to find and the short term sites were in a large level grassy area with lots of room. Finding a site couldn't have been easier. A seasoned couple own this place and couldn't have been nicer. They don't accept plastic, so bring cash. The WiFi and other utilities worked well. We didn't find any local OTA channels. There are a number of seasonal sites back in the woods. We camped at Mountain View Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Scotia Pines Campground, Brookfield, Nova Scotia

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

We stopped for the night en route to another destination and inquired about the laundry and the lady at the desk was able to give us a pull through directly across from it which was very handy. About 1/3 of the campground are permanent residents and are in one area to one side. The remainder of the campground is set up for short term guests. Most of the sites are pull throughs in a lightly forested area. I didn't notice any particular road noise although the campground is fairly close to the highway. I would come back if in the area. We camped at Scotia Pines Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Blomidon Provincial Park , Canning, Nova Scotia

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

The rate is in Canadian $. This park is at the end of the road on a 600' bluff overlooking the Minas Basin of the Bay of Fundy and about a 30 minute drive from Hwy 101. The campground is arranged in 2 loops and several of the sites back up to a view of the water. Most sites are barely in view of their neighbors in this very woody area. The interior roads are dirt with a few puddle filled holes and for most rigs is wide enough to clear the branches. Site #1 is enormous and can be used as a pull through while the rest are mostly back-ins. The paved road leading to the park is a narrow winding and sometimes bumpy lane along the farms. The last hill to the entrance station is probably about a 10% grade. Reservations can be made online or via phone. Without reservations, drive through and make a note of which desired sites appear empty and return to the kiosk and use the yellow phone to make a no-fee reservation for the desired site. We were there mid-week after Labor Day and the park was about 10% occupied. Great views of the Basin. There are water spigots near the loops roads and a dump station is near the entrance and can be used in either direction. We camped at Blomidon Provincial Park in a Travel Trailer.

Lunenburg Board of Trade Campground, Lunenburg, Nova Scotia

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

Price is in Canadian $, with taxes was over $52. It seems very pricey for a municipal campground. Some sites are W/E others are W/E/S in 2 adjacent areas. One area is better suited for truck campers, Class-B/C and tents and sites are more distributed, the other can handle much larger rigs but everyone is more or less side by side and fairly close, but adequate room for slideouts. Registration is a the blockhouse shaped building on the corner at the top of the hill which is also the information desk for the area. I do not recommend taking an RV into the old town area as the streets are very narrow and the hills incredibly steep and current street construction in the area have some street detours. The waterfront is in walking distance, but the hills may be too much for some. The folks at the desk were very friendly and helpful. The area is stunning and despite the price, I would come back.

The old town Lunenburg is in its entirety a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Nearly all building are 19th Century. The waterfront and harbor is a big draw and homeport for the Bluenose II, many very good restaurants and shops all within a block or 2 of the waterfront. Horse drawn carriage tours and sailboat excursions. A short drive to Mahone Bay and other places of interest.

Woodhaven RV Park of Halifax, Hammonds Plains, Nova Scotia

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

We called to inquire about reservations for later in the day and was told there were plenty of sites and no information other than our name was required. The young man at checking was friendly and efficient and we had a site with a swipe of the credit card and a map with directions to a FHU pull through that was screened from other campers by the trees. Until driving around in the campground, we had no idea how how larger this place is. Access and interior roads are dirt in good shape. It located back in the woods of a residential/commercial street. The campground appeared to be about 75% full and the WiFi was the best we have encountered in several months. 2 local OTA stations from Halifax came in good. Woodhaven is within reasonable driving distance to downtown Halifax and Peggy's Cove. We would definitely return here should we come this way again. Traffic noise was mostly muted by the trees.

Peggy's Cove has many tourist busses pouring in each day. The site remains beautiful and the wave action is amazing on a day with a good breeze. Don't overlook the Fisherman's Memorial across the street from the visitor's center and the Flight 111 Memorial just off Rt 333 in nearby Indian Harbor. Visit the Citadel in Halifax before noon to witness the noon gun. Inquire about parking before going and plan on a bit of walking uphill. Local tours drop off and pickup visitors at the only entrance.

We were looking for an overnight stop and the quite friendly fellow in the office had a long convenient pull through in the middle of the loop overlooking the water. I did not have to unhook as the site was level. All hookups were standard and worked well. The is a bit of highway noise from Hwy 4, but it was not objectionable.

Meat Cove Campground, Meat Cove, Nova Scotia

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

Price is in Canadian $. One comes here for the scenery, not the amenities. Meat Cove is located at the end of a part gravel, part paved road that follows the scenic coastline. The sites are in a grassy meadow on a bluff overlooking the ocean. Other than picnic tables and fire rings, there is no development. Sites are limited, and available on a 1st come basis so late arrivals will most likely have to turn around and hope for availability elsewhere. The sites are best suited for tents and small camping units. The view is unlike any other I've been to. The owner operates a small restaurant with tables inside and on a deck overlooking the water that is worthy of the trip out here if not camping. We camped at Meat Cove Campground in a Tent.
