About americanrascal

RVing for over 35 years in the 8 RV's of various types we've owned. We've traveled every state in the Union and most provinces in Canada. We have a legitimate excuse for not RVing to Hawaii (road issue). But for some reason we have not visited the great state of Wisconsin. I have no idea why?

Riverbend Campground, Hiawassee, Georgia

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

Outstanding park. We visit here whenever we can get away into the spectacular Blue Ridge Mountains of No. Georgia. Sites are large, well developed and perfectly maintained. It's an exceptional value to camp here and so fun to enjoy the natural amenity of the Hiawassee River in a perfect mountain valley surrounded by dense green mountains. Our site - like many here- back right up to the Hiawassee river for tubing, kayaking and trout fishing. Park maintenance is superb. We camped at Riverbend Campground in a Motorhome.

Visiting the Georgia Mountain Fair here in July is a special treat. Nearby Brasstown Bald Mountain serves up awesome views of north GA and the Blue Ridge. Good food stores, fuel restaurants and marina services in Hiawassee about 2 miles away.

Camp LeConte Luxury Outdoor Resort, Gatlinburg, Tennessee

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $58.00
Overall Rating:

Very nice RV Park. Superb maintenance, properly developed, excellent staff. Level sites adequately sized. This is a small park, quaint and relatively quiet. Whenever we stay in the Gatlinburg - Pigeon Forge area this will always be our first choice. Not very many channel choices on cable- but its a good signal and enough to get the job done! While it is dog friendly, a dog park on site is not available. We camped at Camp LeConte Luxury Outdoor Resort in a Motorhome.

Pay attention to instructions on entering the park. Use the access road for the High School to enter off parkway due to a median along the main parkway. In spite of that its an easy entrance.

Wytheville KOA, Wytheville, Virginia

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

We stay here often on treks along I-81 north and southbound. A reliable resource for overnight campers. The park seems to be continually improving with each visit. This trip we noticed many more new pull through sites made available. Off the road a bit so its quiet. We camped at Wytheville KOA in a Motorhome.

Shenandoah Valley Campground, Verona, Virginia

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $55.00
Overall Rating:

We did a one nighter here . Not the most fun to access. Rather wiggly access road and a bit off the interstate. Sites were short, shady and nice on a a small river. Width was fine for us. We are about 55 feet towing and barely fit in their largest pull through- but we made it. It was very quiet. Good wifi and cable. Seemed a bit over priced for us considering the level of development for the park, but the staff was very helpful getting us the best they had on short notice. It's a great place for a family with youngsters to plop it down to play for a few days. AT&T cell only worked occasionally if you walk up to the beautiful pond, stand on one foot, and hold your finger up in the air. We camped at Shenandoah Valley Campground in a Motorhome.

Swan Bay Resort, Alexandria Bay, New York

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $43.00
Overall Rating:

I added in our metered electric (separate charge if 7 days or more) into the rate we paid and stated here, but the site was a great value. Management maintains a beautiful park with exceptional views and awesome maintained sites! During our visit there was a bit of noise and a significant but clearly temporary truck traffic in the park as areas of the resort are still under construction, but it was not bothersome. The location is perfect to visit the 1000 Island region - Alexandria Bay, 20 minutes to Watertown, Ft Drum; and Clayton is just a few minutes down the road. The amenities are superb -Tiki Bar, pool when its warm enough, boat docks & ramp. Sites are perfectly developed. Wifi excellent. Having cable would have been nice for a park of this quality, but none was available. But we enjoyed the view and did not miss the TV! Was a bit "buggy" but that's just mother nature doing her thing! Looking forward to visiting again. We camped at Swan Bay Resort in a Motorhome.

Fantastic full grocery store immediately adjacent to the campground . Alexandria Bay and Clayton are nearby and offer wonderful culinary choices and quaint riverfront atmosphere. You must check out the waterfront in both towns. Other great nearby venues are the Watertown Zoo, Boldt Castle. If you have some extra time visit Sacketts Harbor also! Very convenient to Ft Drum.

Country Hills Campground, Marathon, New York

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

A fantastic gem of an RV Park! Mix of long term and short term visitors in a setting overlooking a beautiful pond. Off the main drag a bit but very quiet in a rural setting. Hard working folks put together a comfortable and enjoyable RV park that is perfectly maintained and nicely developed. The owners/ staff were exceptionally helpful. Can't wait to return here in the future! FHU but no cable and wish we could have stayed longer. Wifi available. We camped at Country Hills Campground in a Motorhome.

Lazydays RV Campground, Seffner, Florida

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

A heavily used very urban RV resort. The pool and amenities are excellent! Sites are unusually short, but paved with asphalt and a concrete patio. Landscaping turf is in poor shape. Site separation is fine. Great location for access to the Tampa Bay region and into central Florida. The Lazy Days complex is handy for all RVers (parts, supplies and a new RV!). Picnic Table on site was in poor condition. Many seemed to be in poor condition. Wonderful staff. We camped at Lazydays RV Campground in a Motorhome.

Emerald Coast RV Beach Resort, Panama City Beach, Florida

Date of Stay: December, 2017 - $60.00
Overall Rating:

This is one of the finest RV parks we've ever visited in 35 years of RVing. So well developed and maintained its hard to find anyway to improve. Now they are under the Sun RV resorts organization and it will be interesting to see if the high standards set by previous owners continue. The staff is excellent. We try to visit 4 times a year for a week each time. One of the most relaxing places you can imagine. Site size is great. We camped at Emerald Coast RV Beach Resort in a Motorhome.

Newton KOA , Newton, Iowa

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

The overall setting is very nice, noise though from the interstate. Good wifi. Friendly staff.There is a major problem though with the overnight pull through sites being too close. The adjoining site to ours could not fully open thier slide as it ran into out power pedestal. The neighbors had to move thier picnic table use thier site , but it was so close to ours when moved when we opened a compartment door it swung into the table denting the door. We could reach out our bedroom window and touch the neighbors slide. The entrance is set behind other businesses making the park a bit hard to find. We missed the turn.This would be a wonderful park if the pull throughs were adequately spaced side to side. We camped at Newton KOA in a Motorhome.

3 Fingers Campground, Forest City, Iowa

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

Interesting park a few miles outside Forest City. If visiting the Winnebago facility this seems to be the best option for FHU. Good WIFI, level sites. Nice lakes and ponds on and adjacent to property. Seems to be many permanent set ups . Forget about ATT cell service anywhere around these parts. Very helpful and friendly office staff. Clean and apparently well managed park with some nice recreational aspects. We camped at 3 Fingers Campground in a Motorhome.

We've been to hundreds of RV parks in our travels around the country for the past 35 + years. This is one of the finest RV parks we've ever visited. The grounds are so well managed and maintained -so relaxing! The staff is so friendly! Off the highway enough so there is no road noise. Sites are perfectly level and adequatly spaced. Internet is good. Off air TV does the job! It's the type of campground you feel like you'd want to be at every night for an extended stay or overnight. If I could only find every campground to be just like this one! We camped at Dakota Sunsets RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $41.00
Overall Rating:

Its seems a bit remote off the interstate but you can see the highway from the park! One of those hidden gems of an RV parks and pretty easy to get to. So its very quiet with a spectacular view of the plains. Great friendly service from management/owner. Nice sized gravel (no grass) sites, relatively level on the upper (high)end of the CG. No amenities here except a really good "see forever" view of the plains! We'd definitely stay here again! Fantastic WIFI. We camped at All Seasons RV Park in a Motorhome.

Valley View RV Park, Island Park, Idaho

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $49.00
Overall Rating:

This is really a nice park. Well laid out, very level sites with plenty of space between sites. Folks were helpful setting up. Only ran into one problem- and that was they seem to be having a few glitches with their power company or circuit breakers which kicked off every day once a day. But they fixed it immediately. Voltage was very good as I checked it frequently. They are working on getting this fixed. Just an outstanding RV park (no amenities except for a handy laundromat on site) and its a bit away from anything. The views are stunning! Would have rated higher if power had been OK. We camped at Valley View RV Park in a Motorhome.
