A very convenient campground if you're travelling thru the Meridian area. The pull-thrus are quite large and concrete pads. Cable, sewer and 50 map were all good. We used this CG as an ovenite stop as we were travelling to Louisiana. Access back to the interstate wasy easy and quick. This is a very large campground and has at least 25 pull-thrus for overniters. We'd stay here again, once again using our Passport America for the discount.

This is an older park, very near the airport, but is a good value if you are visiting Atlantic City or Ocean City. It's conveniently located near the major highways, shopping and restaurants. Our site was level and a tad small for our 38' 5th wheel, but it sufficed. The store is stocked quite well and was convenient for us. Wifi was good, we had 50 amp, sewer and a good TV cable. We'd stay here again.

A great campground when visiting the D.C. area. Located on a working farm, this is a very large campground, with lots of limited amenity sites located in the woods. Our site, however, was out in the open near the pool. We had a pull through with 50 amp full service. The campground is a bit hilly, but our site was level and adequate. However, the sites face each other so your awning and sitting area faces your neighbors. Unfortunately, there was only one picnic table, but we didn't need to use it, so our neighbors had it to themselves. We would stay here again when visiting the D.C. area.

This is a wonderful campground located right on Chesapeke Bay in a small sailing/boating resort town, Rock Hall. It has been beautifully landscaped and our site was spacious, overlooking the Bay. The owners and management were extremely friendly and helpful and gave us plenty of suggestions as to where to eat, shop etc. We would have stayed longer but they were booked full for the annual Pirate's Festival that the town hosts. I would call Bay Shores a destination resort campground as it is out of the way, but these are the types of campgrounds we enjoy the most. There is no pool, so I would not recommend this CG to families with kids who like to play in the pool. But, at the same time, if you want to recharge your batteries, this place is for you. We will definitely return here to stay for a week or two and we highly recommend Bay Shore Campground.

If you believe the hype of their website, you'll be truly disappointed. We were. This campground is on a plantation, but don't expect a whole lot. There are some glorious plantations in the area, but his isn't one of them. Yes, our site was a concrete pad, but when we arrived, it was covered with mud and debris from the previous occupant, who had left 4 days earlier. We were told that someone was supposed to have cleaned it up. My wife spent 45 minutes sweeping the pad, before the rains came and turned our concrete pad into a pad of mud. Once we set up and put our awning out, our 'patios' was two feet from our neighbors sewer hole, and it was not a pleasant area to enjoy coffee or a drink. No picnic tables were available. (There wouldn't have been any room, anyway.) When we asked the manager about restaurants or destinations, she was totally clueless and told us she'd only been there for a couple of months. Apparently, most of the campers work in the area and those that we met were very nice. It was very quiet in the CG since these guys go to work very early and come home late, very tired. I would not return to the "Resort", ever again. Very, very disappointed. If you feel you need to stay here, I'd recommend the gravel/grass section, but not the concrete pads. The grassy area seems to give rigs a bit more room.

I love this park. All sites overlook one one their large stocked fishing ponds and you don't need a license. All sites have a level concrete pad. This park, however, has recently been sold and I think that the new owners will continue to value their guests. While we were there, they started to pave all of the drives of the park and we were told new connection pedestals will be installed along with all connections at 50 amp. We would definitely stay here again, and would go out of our way to do so. TV is antenna with plenty of channels and Wifi can be a challenge.

I really like this park. It is very convenient while traveling the Panhandle of Florida. The "Overnight " sites are long and quite level and easy to get into to and out of. Most of the sites seem to be shady and roomy. Our price reflects Passport America. TV reception is adequate if you have a decent antennae. Wifi is outstanding. We'd stay here again and have done so quite often in the past.

We stayed here in our 5th wheel for the NASCAR races, and enjoyed ourselves very much. My GPS brought us here on back roads, but we eventually found the CG. Many of the sites are on a slope, so be prepared to extend your levelers quite a bit. For full hookups, you will only have 30 amp service. For 50 amp, there is no sewer. The CG is very pretty and convenient, being only about 1 - 2 miles from the track. We would stay here again.

This campground seems to have a 10 star rating in Woodall's and I have no clue why. The sites are not level at all, there are very few amenities that are nearby ( We were located in the 'upper RV area') and there is not much to do locally. I guess being close to New York City would demand a high rate, but $80.00 before the discount, seems a bit outrageous. If at least the campground were better maintained, then maybe it would be worth it, but we decided to not stay here more than one night and that says it all. Many of our camping neighbors were also very disappointed in this campground, but had also been duped by their full page ads and their ratings. They also offer cable TV - a total of 13 channels. The only good thing is that their Wifi seems to work quite well. The CG offers bus tours to NYC for a fee, but the trip still takes about 1 1/2 to 2 hours one way. Will not stay here again.

This is an older and very large campground about 15 miles from Sturbridge. Once we found the campground, we were amazed at how big it was, with many of the campsites secluded in woods. Our pull-thru was adequate and relatively level, although getting out when leaving was a bit of a challenge with large boulders and a fence in our way. The driveways are mostly dirt and gravel and a bit rutted, so we were grateful that it hadn't rained prior or during our stay there. The owners seem to have their own set of rules, such as providing them with a copy of rabies vaccination for your pets. We had a copy and that was sufficient. Also, you need a card to access the park 24 hours a day. That's not so unusual, but sliding the card against the card reader from a large rig, or my F-250 can be a bit of a challenge. Wifi, where we were camped, was very limited, so I used my phone's 'Hot Spot'. No cable, but enough TV stations to entertain us at night. There are a lot of seasonals there, but they were all friendly and seemed to be enjoying themselves. We used the CG to go into Sturbridge and visit Old Sturbridge Village, which was well worth it. Would - probably - camp here again.

Located near Plymouth, we enjoyed this park very much. We had a large pull thru site off to the side, near the pool area. Easy to get in and out of, it was overlooking a large meadow. The CG was perfect for exploring Plymouth. We also took the ferry from Plymouth to Provincetown therefore avoiding the long drive and traffic on Cape Cod. Our 50 Amp and cable were great, and the Wifi was relatively good, although I used my Sprint 'Hot Spot" most of the time. We'd stay here again.

The Good: Close to the quaint seaside town of Camden, and it reminds you of a State Park. The Bad: It reminds you of a cruddy State Park, the roads are narrow and rutted. The Bad: The sites are narrow and apparently the people taking reservations have no clue as to what they are doing. I asked for my Good Sam discount and was offered a complimentary bundle of fire wood. No thank you. I'll take the credit. Half of the showers and bathrooms had very old 'Out of Order' paper signs taped to their doors, a movie was showing in a little amphitheater that was so loud I could hear it word for word at 10:00 0'clock at nite. Our site was a real struggle to get into, but it was the "largest" site available for our 38' 5th wheel. When we attempted to move the picnic table to make room for our rig to back it in, it fell apart from rot. We then noticed that not two picnic tables were the same. They must buy them when they are on sale somewhere. It was not a pleasant camping experience for us. Would not stay here again...ever!

A large park with tiered campsites. Very clean and very well maintained. This is a great place to go to if you like to visit the various little communities in the area, such as Kennybunkport, Wells and others. Our site was up a hill, but relatively level and not too close to our neighbors. We had Wifi which was good - some of the time - and cable TV. In comparison to some to the other campgrounds that we saw, this one is a real gem. The beach is about a mile away, with public parking available. There are plenty of restaurants, shops and stores in the area, so we weren't lacking for anything. However, don't be in a hurry to get anywhere quickly, especially during the summer months. Traffic can be a challenge. We would definitely stay here again. We opted for a 30 Amp site, which was adequate for us since the weather was cool and we spent little time in our RV.

A truly wonderful campground, on the small side, beautifully located about a 45-60 minute drive north of Ellingsworth, the gate way to Acadia National Park. This CG is clean, in a nice meadow type setting overlooking gthe small harbors of coastal Maine. Limited TV and Wifi, but it was grand. We had a back in sport for our 38' Fifth Wheel, and our windows overlooked the water. We could easily visit numerous small fishing villages from this location and found two lighthouses. (We would have found more, but it was too foggy on two of our days - not the campground's fault. Also, our host, Kurt, provided a unique service. If you order lobster from him, he will prepare them for you and deliver them right to your rig. They were, by far, the best lobster we had during our two week stay in Maine !!! If you need some peace and quiet and enjoy discovering the northern coast of Maine, this CG is highly recommended. Our only regret is we couldn't stay longer.

Our first stay at Red Barn, and we were pleasantly surprised. The CG is much larger than it looks like from the road. (Our rate is a combination PA on weekdays and Good Sam for the weekend, by the way). We were given a very nice, large pull thru with great Wifi, a very good cable TV signal, 50 Amp and close to the store, yet in a very peaceful quiet area that we really enjoyed. The owners are diligently working hard to continuously make even more improvements. This is a great place to camp if you plan on visiting Acadia National Forest and Bar Harbor, without having to be in the midst of it all. It's about a 40 -45 minute drive to get to Bar Harbor from here. This park has quite a few seasonals and there are lots of activities for the kids. We were here during their "Christmas in July" weekend and it was lots of fun, even though we are empty nesters. The office has a great little store with lots of camping 'stuff' and gifts. They also have a snack bar that sells ice cream, sandwiches and pizza, which they deliver to your site. We spent 6 nites/7 days here and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The owners, Chris and Sally were great.
