Raleigh Oaks RV Resort, Four Oaks, North Carolina

Date of Stay: January, 2017 - $36.00
Overall Rating:      

This CG must have been designed by RVers. Easy access from 95, quick check-in, large level sites with plenty of room on each side. Extremely clean facilities. Has a fitness room!!! Great staff. Not a vacation destination area, but we liked it so much that one intended overnight turned into 3. Not much in the way of a store, but you're 10 minutes from nice outlets. Will make a point to stay there whenever traveling on 95. We camped at Raleigh Oaks RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Mystic KOA, North Stonington, Connecticut

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $51.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a very big and busy RV park. Right off 95, but noise wasn't an issue. Given its location, I would say $51/night was a good price, but this was for water and 30 amp only. Full service sites are limited. Also, using your own washer is prohibited due to well/septic. Our site was level with grass/dirt; some trees in our section, many in other sections. Our particular site was roomy, but the driving lanes are a little on the narrow side.

Very well-run park with an abundance of family-oriented activities. (Pools, basketball, volleyball, shuffleboard, outdoor movie night - could go on and on.) Ver friendly staff. There were children everywhere, all well-behaved. Lots of seasonal trailers, some older. I would venture that this is a popular weekend destination for locals.

Would definitely stay here again, but with better planning so as to book a full-service, 50 amp site. We camped at Mystic KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Mystic Seaport is about 15 minutes away. About $20-25/adult, will give discount for AAA. Think Williamsburg on the water. Worthwhile in that it's both entertaining and informative. (Stop by Mystic Diner on way in for a good, relatively inexpensive meal). Groton Navy Submarine museum also nearby (free). Could do both in one day. Mystic Pizza II about 2 miles away and very good.

Paradise Park Resort Campground, Old Orchard Beach, Maine

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $52.00
Overall Rating:      

What a lovely campground! And some of the nicest camp hosts we've met. This is a very clean, well maintained campground. Ideal for families, but even those traveling without small children would enjoy a stay here. Did not use the facilities, but would be surprised if anything less than excellent. Beautiful, wooded grounds, windy lanes (helped to have an escort), easy stroll to the beach. Will return! We camped at Paradise Park Resort Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Endless Caverns Resort, New Market, Virginia

Date of Stay: June, 2015 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

We used this campground as a stopover for our trip, both coming and going. For the first night, which was a Sunday, we used our PA and got a $20.00 rate (great bargain). On the return leg, we stayed over on a Saturday and paid the normal rate of $44, which I thought was reasonable. The first night we stayed in a site in the lower section. On the return leg, we were in a higher elevation site which I did not like. The interior roads are gravel and you've got some incline on the higher elevation sites. Our dually was spinning gravel trying to get to the site. Both sites were plenty large enough and there is adequate spacing between the sites. Did not see any snakes (plenty of chipmunks though). Did see what appeared to be poison ivy at the one site so keep a look out for that. Speaking of foliage, the trees around the sites could use some trimming. Did not use any facilities, but the pool looked nice from the road. Oh, and you do not have to exit through the arch. We camped at Endless Caverns Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Mama Gertie's Hideaway Campground, Swannanoa, North Carolina

Date of Stay: June, 2015 - $55.00
Overall Rating:      

We had a lovely time at Mama Gertie's. I don't understand how anyone can rate this campground negatively. Yes, it's terrain is steep. It is on a mountain, though, and if you go for the mountain view sites (highly recommended), you might bite your nails a little on the escorted way up and way down. But a site on the top is simply breathtaking and worth it. As I did not use any facilities, I cannot comment about those. Also, I do not think this is a park geared towards family activities. What you get is a well-maintained CG in a quiet, beautiful setting. Camp hosts were very helpful and pleasant. We were so pleased we booked a return trip already. We camped at Mama Gertie's Hideaway Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

I would add to the other tips that there are a few wineries nearby, or within a day trip's drive. We stumbled upon the Linville Winery and found that to be very enjoyable. Hot Springs, Grandfather Mountain, Blowing Rock are all nice day trips from the camp base.

Victory RV Park and Campground, Paducah, Kentucky

Date of Stay: October, 2013 - $13.00
Overall Rating:      

Echo the sentiments of the other favorable reviews on this campground. Very friendly owners who escorted us to the site and made sure everything was in order. Pretty setting. Very close to the racetrack. If we stop here again, and I hope we do, we'll have to allow for some extra time to wander over to the track. Rate was based on PA. We camped at Victory RV Park and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice campground, with pretty setting, and nice hosts. Big rig friendly and easy access from I-81, with truck stops handy at the exit. Would absolutely stay again. Rate reflects Passport discount. We camped at Baileyton RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Hersheypark Camping Resort (formerly Hershey Highmeadow Campground), Hummelstown, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: September, 2013 - $58.00
Overall Rating:      

This park has many "pro's" such as cleanliness, the proximity to Hershey Park and the shuttle to and from, and the pretty park-like setting. The sites are close to one another, but the hook-ups, fire pit, and picnic table were all in good shape. As for the cons, as mentioned in other posts, the Wi-Fi is iffy. The biggest concern is the configuration of the sites, at least for the pull-throughs where we were. This is not what I would consider big-rig friendly. Depending upon your exact site, a big-rig is doable, but not for a novice and not without guidance from a spotter or two, even for the more experienced driver. Lots of trees and tight corners makes entry and exit tricky. It does not help matters that campers were parking their tow vehicles at their sites, where space is extremely limited, rather than in overflow areas. We camped at Hersheypark Camping Resort (formerly Hershey Highmeadow Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

Candy Hill Campground, Winchester, Virginia

Date of Stay: June, 2013 - $49.00
Overall Rating:      

Very clean and well-maintained campground. We were greeted as we pulled into the campground and had an escort to our site. There appears to be a good deal of staff available. Sites are close together, but that didn't pose any problem. There was a mix of retirees and families with young children. Even though the park was full children playing and lots of people walking about, it still was quiet and peaceful. This is a slightly wooded campground with level sites. The sites are at least partially paved, only a few pull-thrus. Other sites appear easy to back into with ample green space and extra parking. Each site has its own picnic bench, all seem to be in good condition. There is a well-stocked store, pool, and game room. Looks like there is a bike rental as well. The only complaint was the poor cable reception. We will definitely return. Price reflects a Good Sam discount. We camped at Candy Hill Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Friendship Village Campground , Bedford, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: April, 2013 - $47.00
Overall Rating:      

Excellent park! Very clean, friendly. Lots of quality amenities. Beautiful grounds with open spaces and wooded areas surrounding a steam and pond. The roads are graveled, as are the sites, at least in the newer section. Sites were not particularly level, but we had no problem. There is also adequate spacing between sites. We're novices and had no difficulty maneuvering around with our big rig. In addition to all that the campground has to offer, Bedford itself is a charming town. We were so pleased, we already reserved a spot for a return trip. We camped at Friendship Village Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Western Village RV Park, Carlisle, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: March, 2013 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

I agree - this is a very nice campground and the hosts were pleasant and helpful. We were first-timers and found access in and out of the park to be pretty easy. The grounds are well-patrolled and very clean. There appear to be some residentials, but this wasn't a drawback. Overall, a very positive experience for us. We camped at Western Village RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
