Lake Powhatan Recreation Area, Asheville, North Carolina

Date of Stay: April, 2016 - $18.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed in Lakeside Loop, which is the area with full hookups (water, sewer, 50/30/20 amp.) These are all paved sites (blacktop) and the drives are blacktop as well. It is a lovely park that is HEAVILY treed with both deciduous and evergreen trees. There is a lake with both fishing and beach. Campground hosts are abundant, there are two in this loop and most other loops have two each. All the staff we dealt with were very helpful. We booked a total of 6 days online in reserved sites, but had to split them 3 and 3 on two neighboring sites. But when we arrived, they were able to give us a walk-up site on which we could stay up to the maximum 14 days. All in all, it's a really nice campground, and if we come back to the Asheville area, we won't hesitate to stay here. We camped at Lake Powhatan Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

This campground is very well located as regards area attractions and shopping of all kinds. We surveyed all the sites on our loop for likelihood of satellite acquisition (DirecTV) and found it possible with a portable dish on our site (41) as well as 36A, 38, 42, 44, 46, and 51. There are a limited number of local off-the-air TV channels available, two of which seemed to be affiliated with ABC and CBS.

Blythe Island Regional Park Campground, Brunswick, Georgia

Date of Stay: March, 2016 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

Choice of pull-through or back-in; all sites are level and nicely graveled. There was a lake for fishing and bike trails. The campground was very quiet. Stable power and good water quality and pressure. Handicap sites area available. We camped at Blythe Island Regional Park Campground in a Motorhome.

We found that we detected the smell from the nearby paper mill in the mornings on the wind, but did not find it too objectionable. This area of Georgia was plagued (every campground) with swarms of gnats, but fortunately, one of the staff recommended White Citrus spray from Bath and Body Works as a good repellent for them.

James Island County Park, Charleston, South Carolina

Date of Stay: March, 2016 - $39.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a great park with nice big campsites and scenery. This county park, independent of the campground part, is huge and there is lots to do. There are canoes and kayaks, and even bicycles for rent, and lots of trails for biking and walking. We would like to have extended our stay for a few days, but it is such a great campground, they couldn't accommodate our extension on our stay. Needless to say, we would definitely stay here again. We camped at James Island County Park in a Motorhome.

Lots of activities within the county park. Conveniently located to all area sights and attractions. Popular supermarkets and stores are not too far off. Well enough of the beaten path so that it quiet. There are plenty of trees in the park, but our site wasn't particularly shady. Good voltage, and good water pressure and quality. Definitely reserve as far in advance as possible, and for the number of nights you might want to stay, because competition is pretty stiff for availability.

Briarcliffe RV Resort, Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

Date of Stay: March, 2016 - $67.00
Overall Rating:      

This campground is in North Myrtle Beach. Sites weren't cramped, and were concrete paved with patio apron. Voltage was consistently good, water pressure and quality were good. Free cable TV with a good assortment of channels. There are a good number of trees in the park, but we were able to position our motor home so that our roof top dome could see the satellite. The nightly rate is what was on their sign - we stayed on Coast to Coast using our points, so our only out of pocket was upcharge for 50 amp service and taxes. All in all a very nice park - we would definitely stay there again. We camped at Briarcliffe RV Resort in a Motorhome.

The park is next door to Barefoot Landing shopping center, and there is a pedestrian gate from the park that opens onto their lot, and requires the combination for the latch to return to the park. It is also close to shopping in town and handy to all the area attractions and sights. All the usual supermarkets are available.

OBX Campground, Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina

Date of Stay: March, 2016 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed at the end of their off season, so we got 7 nights for the price of 5, which made our nightly rate $28 and change. Sites are graveled and level, and there is ample space between sites. We had a nice water view out our window. Electric voltage was strong at all times and water pressure and quality were good. It's far enough out of town to be quiet, but close enough to be convenient to shopping. Cable TV is offered, but requires renting a cable box. Their information says they have WiFi, but sitting in our MH, we were unable to see their network. We didn't try attempting from outside or at the office. There are picnic tables at all sites. No trees among the campsites, but the campground is surrounded by trees on its perimeter. We camped at OBX Campground in a Motorhome.

There's a Walmart Super Center, plus multiple Food Lion and Harris Teeter Stores. All the usual auto parts stores, Lowes, Home Depot, and Ace Hardware. Best gas prices were at 7-Eleven.

This campground is literally next door to the Wright Brothers National Memorial, which is definitely a must do.

Knife River Campground, Knife River, Minnesota

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $36.00
Overall Rating:      

We used one of the four pull-through sites with 50 amp service. Most of the others are back-ins with 20/30 amp.

We called ahead and had our site assigned when we got there based upon our needs. We were a short walk from Lake Superior and an excellent nearby restaurant. We camped at Knife River Campground in a Motorhome.

Ontonagon Township Park and Campground, Ontonagon, Michigan

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $21.00
Overall Rating:      

This town park doesn't take reservations, but we were able to call in the morning before we came in and the nice young man managing the park took our RV info and held an appropriate site for us.

We had an excellent view of Lake Superior from our site, and as we were looking west over the lake we enjoyed walking down to the water and watching the sunsets.

About the only negative thing is the location of the utility hookups. They were in an unusual location relative to our unit, but we were able to get hooked up OK.

Overall, we were quite pleased with the park and would gladly stay there again. We camped at Ontonagon Township Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

We used this campground as our base from which we explored the area waterfalls and toured the Adventure Mining Company mine (a very interesting place to see).

There is nice IGA supermarket nearby with a good selection and good prices.

Northforest Campground, Tomahawk, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

.We called this park after showing up at another nearby park at which we had reservations and discovering that they were under a county boil order for contaminated water. We were therefore delighted when the nice lady we got on the phone at Northforest told us to come on in!

They had a very nice playground for kids, shuffleboard, tennis courts, mini golf, and a nice beach. We were in a pleasant area with forest and a lake - the campground was nice and quiet. We camped at Northforest Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a drive-up only campground with self-service registration.

The sites were roomy and easy to get into and out of. Utilities were all good on the full hookup site. The park was quiet and we would be happy to stay there again some time. We camped at Deerwood Park in a Motorhome.

Country Roads Motorhome & RV Park, Lake Delton, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $33.00
Overall Rating:      

.This is a very nice RV park, well laid out, with a good laundry facility, basic but clean bathrooms, and good sized pull-through sites. Our understanding was that it originated in the '70s, and I think most of the infrastructure is original, as we had a weak 50 amp breaker on our first site that failed twice. But the owners allowed us to move to another site, and we spent a pleasant week with no more issues. But even with a serviceable electric connection, the grid struggles to keep up with the demands of a lot of big rigs simultaneously, so we were asked to run our water heater and fridge on LP, and to only use one AC. (We have been asked the same thing at other parks in the past, and understand the reasoning, so we didn't mind.) The water pressure and quality were quite good though, and the sewer connection was convenient and worked well.
So notwithstanding the electrical challenges, we found our stay here quite pleasant and would stay here again. We camped at Country Roads Motorhome & RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

There is a Walmart and several other stores and restaurants right across the road from the campground. There's also a nice outlet mall in town. If you're looking for an enjoyable, non-chain restaurant meal, we highly recommend Donnie's in nearby Reedsburg. They have an excellent salad bar that is included with all their entrees, and a fish fry with all you can eat Cod or Halibut on Fridays.

Caboose Lake Campground, Remington, Indiana

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $34.00
Overall Rating:      

Right on the interstate highway, so it's very convenient for a one-night stopover, but quite a lot of road noise to deal with at night. Fortunately, our little sound machine was equal to the task and we slept well.

We stayed in a pull-through site and had no problem getting on site or with leveling. We camped at Caboose Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

Happy Trails RV Park, Lebanon, Missouri

Date of Stay: June, 2015 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

This park appears to be a former KOA Kampground. The location close to the highway is convenient for a one-night stopover en route somewhere else, but we were glad we had our noise machine to overcome the highway noise when we retired for the night.

All that being said, this park is on our way to a lot of the places to which we frequently travel and is better than another nearby park in which we have previously stayed, so the next time we go that way, we'll stay there again. The 50 amp electric, water, and sewer were all fine and check in was effortless. We had a pull-through site and had no problems getting on or off the site. We camped at Happy Trails RV Park in a Motorhome.

D & W Lake Camping and RV Park, Champaign, Illinois

Date of Stay: June, 2015 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed here twice this summer, once in June and once in July and thoroughly enjoyed both stays. We had a pull through site overlooking the lake both times and good hookups. It is convenient to the highway (you can see I-57 from the park, but the noise doesn't make it there and the park is very quiet.) There is a Pilot truck stop at the same exit for convenient fill-up coming or going. We camped at D & W Lake Camping and RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed four nights at Tiki. Site was level but not too large. We were able to connect with satellite TV OK. We didn't use or check the condition of the bathrooms, so we can't report on that.

We stayed at Clementz's for three nights. Sites were roomy and level; all utilities were good. We had good 4G service on our Verizon MiFi; didn't try their Wi-Fi. Bathrooms weren't fancy, much like we've seen in many RV parks. But they were well maintained and clean. There was a nice playground area for children. We would gladly stay here again.
