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.

We only stayed here for one night as we were heading into Maine from NY. The CG is very convenient and reasonable since we used our Passport America card, although you need to pay cash for the discount. Our site was a level and long pull thru, so we never unhooked. It was relatively close to the road, (Apparently held for PA members) so large trucks may disturb some campers, but once it was dark, their noise was not very noticeable. No TV or WiFi service to be found, but that was OK with us, since we were leaving early the next day. I would stay here again, for the convenience. To receive the Passport America discount, you will need to pay in cash.

We stayed at this gorgeous small campground on our way to Maine, and it was wonderful. Our site was in a meadow and there were quite a few other campers in our area, mostly there for the weekend. On the perimeter of the CG were seasonals, all friendly and welcoming. The owner, was a charming and very helpful woman who escorted us to our site. We had 50 Amp, and cable and the WiFi was adequate. The bathrooms were immaculate !!! and very well maintained. I strongly recommend this CG to anyone traveling thru up state NY who wants some peace and quiet and a wonderful setting very near Lake Champlain and the ferry in Essex to take you east to Vermont.

This is a beautiful campground, on a nice river that runs along side. The rating would have been higher except that our pull-through was very narrow and sloped down hill and the young lady in the office was not very helpful, although she was friendly and outgoing. She never gave us a receipt for camping. I called her and she told me that she'd email it to me, which prompted me to tell her that the Wi-Fi wasn't working. She assured me that it was my computer and not her Wi-Fi system, She had also given us a cable TV listing and I told her none of the channels matched to the guide. She explained that the channels change all the time, and I should just search for the channel I want. This really wouldn't have bothered me, but it rained from the moment we pulled in at 2:00 PM until well after midnight and we planned on leaving the next day. Also, they charge for the use of their showers and they are on a timer. And, although we didn't use it, the fire ring so close to the 'pad' that it made maneuvering into the site a bit of a challenge. Had we wanted to make a fire, the pit would have been halfway underneath our rear slide.

After reading other reviews, we were a bit hesitant on coming here, but all other campgrounds were full. In fact, we could only stay one night here because they were booked for the rest of the week. It is large, and family oriented. We had a pull though with full hook up. (50 amp). The park is very large and there are many families enjoying themselves here. The staff was friendly and helpful and gave us good recommendations. Although the park is big, the do not offer an escort service, which we really didn't need. the directions from staff and the map, were very self explanatory and we had no problem finding our site. There is also a trolley service which runs north and south thru the Lake George area and the stop is right by the drive into the CG. We really liked this place. Also, they offer free WIFI, which worked - very well - but just some of the time.

Definitely an older park, with many sites. It rained during our entire stay, so we had quite a few puddles to contend with, but that can happen anywhere. Our site, #54, was in a row of pull-throughs, although we unhooked. We were told that we would have great Wi-Fi service, but that didn't happen. The staff was helpful and friendly and also gave us tickets to some of the attractions in Gettysburg, which we used and enjoyed. The best part of the CG is its close proximity to the Battlefield and cemetery. Try to get to this park by coming up US 15 from the south, or else you will have to maneuver thru the town of Gettysburg, and that could be quite tricky. We would stay here again.

Very friendly and helpful staff for our first time visit. We opted for a pull through, since we were just staying one night. Our site was a bit narrow and not quite level, but it was satisfactory. Great place if you are traveling through the area and need a place to stay.

Our first time here an we were very impressed. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly, and made us feel very welcome. Since our reservations were not site specific, we drove around the loops several times before choosing a very spacious pull-through. We only had 30 amp service but made it through our two-day stay with no difficulty. We did enjoy the museum and a tour of the fort (extra charge) and drove once to Ft. Pulaski, which took us about 45 minutes, through downtown Savannah. The drive into the park was gorgeous and we enjoyed our stay very much. We would definitely stay here again.

Another great Georgia State Park. It is a nonspecific reservation so you can drive around until you find a site that suits you. I was surprised that 75% of the sites had cable. We found a nice, large pull-through with lots of privacy and enjoyed our stay here very much. My only complaint was no Wi-Fi .

A very pretty park with lots of choices, with most sites located on two separate peninsulas, overlooking the huge lake, with 30 or 50 amp service available. (However, much to our dismay, many of the larger 50 amp 'waterfront' sites, were taken by tents and pop ups, which did not set well with me, but was totally understandable due to the excellent views afforded by the sites.) We found a nice 50 amp back in a bit higher on the ridge, with a partial view of the lake, and it suited us just fine. Since we were visiting friends in Augusta, this park was very convenient and was very well kept and maintained. We would definitely stay here again.

What a gem of a park. We called ahead to make sure there was space available and once we arrived, the owner escorted us to a great, shady site. Once set up, we went and did the paperwork, which was a treat. The owners are continuously striving to improve this park, which is conveniently located just off I-75 between Cordele and Macon, GA. Nice clubhouse, nice sites, a large swimming pool and a huge dog park make this a great stop, whether for just overnight or even for a few days to explore central Georgia. The price reflects Passport America, which needs to be paid in cash. I like this campground a lot.

This is a wonderful small park located near Clayton, Ga. The owners are a delight and take great care of this CG. No pool, no playground, means that it's mostly couples and older ones at that. So it was very peaceful and quiet even though it's located very near the major highway - 441. The sites are mostly all gravel and can be just a bit tricky to maneuver into, but it can be done. Gates close early and open late, but there is a small bridge which enters the park for vehicles only that can be accessed most of the time. We extended our stay because of the "niceness" of this park and we will definitely use it again. Our rate reflects the Passport America rate, which was suggested and given with a sincere smile.

Twenty five years ago, we camped here in a pop-up. This time we went back in our 5th wheel. We enjoyed our stay since we had a back-in right on the creek with a covered porch at our disposal. The camp is getting a bit older, as are we, and could use just a little more TLC. The road to our site needs some new asphalt and it can be a bit tight for a larger rig. It is, however, very convenient to Cade's Cove and the Smoky Mtn Nat Park. The Wi-Fi was not very good at our site, but we had cable. I would return to Tremont CG but I would also look at some of the newer parks first. For the value, I believe it was just a bit overpriced and they give no discounts unless you stay for a week.

Inevitably, one of the prettiest and most serene parks we have ever visited. This park is clean, situated near a large lake and the campsites are very nicely kept. Half have water and electric, the other half have just electric. None have sewer. We thoroughly enjoyed the peace and serenity of this CG and would highly recommend it. We wish we could have stayed longer. By the way, the Wifi can be 'iffy' at times.

Although this campground is very nice, I still enjoy some amenities and I look for them. Once we arrived, in the pouring rain, we settled in and with nothing much to do, tried our TV. No signal, and there is no cable hook up. We were promised Wifi, but that signal is very, very weak atour campsite, which was D-2. And the cell signal for our phones is awful. (That you can't bame on the CG). This is a very nice, small park, with a stream running thru it. It lies just on the fringe of the National Forest, so it is very secluded and surrounded by nature. We arrived on a Monday for just one night and didn't see many children, although there seems to be a lot of things for kids to do. The Rec Room was pretty neat, open air with pool table and tables for relaxation.
