Draper's Acres, Lake Placid, New York

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

Easy reservation and check in. We stayed a couple nights, convenient to Lake Placid, Mount Marcy, and Saranac Lake. A little tricky getting into our spot with a 40 foot motorhome, but doable with good back-in skills. Spacious level spot, quiet at night. Verizon cell and mifi worked fine here. We would stay here again. We camped at Draper's Acres in a Motorhome.

Shady Oaks RV Park, Plattsburgh, New York

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

Spent one night as we were passing through the area. Easy reservations, gruff check in by older man and woman. But they might be at the end of a busy summer season, so we cut them some slack. Horses on the other side of the fence were pleasant to watch. Quiet at night, just what we needed. We camped at Shady Oaks RV Park in a Motorhome.

Maple Grove Campground, Fairfax, Vermont

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $24.00
Overall Rating:

Easy reservation process, friendly check in, well maintained campground. Very quiet at night, beautiful sunsets, manager and his team are friendly and helpful. Level, grassy spot. Out in the country, yet the Burlington airport and waterfront are only about 35 minutes away. Verizon cell and mifi worked fine. Rate reflects monthly rate. Would definitely stay here again. We camped at Maple Grove Campground in a Motorhome.

Gold Brook Campground, Stowe, Vermont

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $47.00
Overall Rating:

Location, location, location. We have a 40 MH so our options are limited, and this was the perfect base camp for our week in the Stowe area. For us, this campground was perfect because we weren't there to "camp". It's not nestled in the woods, it is an open grassy area but there are more trees than some other reviews have indicated. The openness allows for beautiful views of the surrounding mountains. We had a level spot. Some sites are closer than others, and we were pretty tight with the motorhomes on either side of us. But we didn't spend much time there, so it wasn't a big deal to us. The campground sits on the main road, but it's pretty quiet at night (except for road construction that happened to be going on at night while we were there). Making reservations and a couple follow up phone calls, plus check in, were maybe the most pleasant experience we've ever had - very friendly! We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Gold Brook Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Several hikes, including Mt. Mansfield, are less than 20 minutes away. We enjoyed several things in Stowe - music in the library gazebo one evening, Art on Park another evening, creemees, strolling main street, Stowe Recreation Path...it's all five minutes away. We did a day trip to Montpelier, about 20 minutes away.

Along the River, Twin Mountain, New Hampshire

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $39.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed one night as we were exploring the White Mountains. Friendly reservations, easy check-in. Formerly Tarry-Ho, it's now Along the River. Nice level spot with grass, easy back-in. Good wifi. We heard some road noise but it quieted down at night. Would stay here again. We camped at Along the River in a Motorhome.

Stetson Shores Campground Inc, Stetson, Maine

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $31.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed here for a couple weeks of downtime as we were traveling around New England. Most of the other campers appeared to be seasonal/regular weekenders. Everyone was friendly, they have lots of weekend activities, and it's every quiet at night. Nice lake, docks, loons, tall mature trees. Verizon cell and mifi worked just OK, no T-Mobile service. We had a level back-in site with a view of a wooded area out the front and partial view of the lake out the side. Campground was clean and well maintained. Interior roads were tight for our 40 foot MH, but no overhanging limbs and the manager gave us a good recommended path in. Rate reflects a discount for weekly rate. We would stay here again. We camped at Stetson Shores Campground Inc in a Motorhome.

Happy Horseshoe Campground, Kingfield, Maine

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $42.00
Overall Rating:

More community than campground! Friendly owners have been running it for 35 years, and with the loyal repeat business they are obviously doing something right. We arrived just in time for the July 4th parade, bingo on Fridays and lots of other activities. And yet, so quiet at night you could hear a pin drop. Lots of birds. One evening another camper brought us firewood as a "welcome" - we've never had that before! We stayed here because it is close to Bigelow hiking, but it wouldn't be a bad spot to just camp and relax either. Verizon mifi worked just OK and cell had problems. Not surprisingly, no T-Mobile service. Very well maintained, lots of tall pines with pine needle flooring. Interior roads were easy to navigate, no low branches with the tall pines. We camped at Happy Horseshoe Campground in a Motorhome.

Wilderness Edge Campground, Millinocket, Maine

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

Bottom line up front - when you have a 40 foot MH and want to hike in Baxter State Park you don't have a lot of options. Service and accommodation at this campground reflect that. After traveling several hundred miles and arriving with a reservation, it was jarring to be told "we don't really have a space that you fit into, but here's what we do...". They have two sites where they close off an interior road so that bigger rigs park right in the road. Well, in the road, but close enough to water and electric so you can plug in which takes some maneuvering. So the picnic table and fire ring were on the side of our rig opposite the door and awning - not ideal. They asked us to take the space further in in case another large MH checks in after us (they never did). Sounds like no problem, right? And it's not if you're expert at making K turns, and driving backwards 200 feet AROUND A CORNER. Luckily my hubby IS an excellent driver and it worked out OK. We just wish they would have told us this when we made the reservation so we knew what we were getting into. Oh, and we called en route to see if it was available for us to check in around 12:30p instead of 2p and they said sure, for an extra fee. To park in the freakin' road! Be sure to ask specifics about what site you'll be in if you stay there. We found other weekend campers to be generally louder than most places we stay, and it seemed too much of a bother for most of the staff to raise a hand and wave at any point in passing. We camped at Wilderness Edge Campground in a Motorhome.

Moosehead Family Campground, Greenville, Maine

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $50.00
Overall Rating:

Easy online reservations, very friendly owners and knowledgeable about where to see moose. We only stayed a couple days before the holiday - great location for Mount Kineo hike and moose watching.  Verizon cell and mifi worked fine, no T-Mobile.  Sharp turn into the entrance approaching from the south is very tricky in a 40 foot MH + tow, but doable since there was no outbound campground traffic.  Very little road noise, nice quiet campground. We would stay here again. We camped at Moosehead Family Campground in a Motorhome.

Hadley's Point Campground, Bar Harbor, Maine

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

We stayed here a couple weeks before "season" hit, and we saw people start to trickle in towards the end. Very quiet during our stay. Big variance in sites all across the campground from large field area exposed to everyone and everything, to very private sites nestled in the woods. Everyone was friendly, and it's well maintained. We were there for hiking, biking, touring the island and it was the perfect location for that, without having to deal with a lot of congestion. We had to work to get level at our particular site. Our Verizon and T-Mobile phones worked fine, as well as our Verizon mifi. Dump station tight to get into with a Class A (scraping branches). We camped at Hadley's Point Campground in a Motorhome.

Sunset Point RV Trailer Park, Lubec, Maine

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

Excellent location for visiting West Quoddy Head Lighthouse and Campobello Island. The center pull throughs need to be angled, since there's not enough room to turn and pull in straight with the spaces being so close together. This is the first time our RV has ever been hit by another RV trying to turn into their spot. And sites are a little more than an awning width apart. But, we weren't here for "camping", so it was fine. Their wifi was good when you could see it. Our Verizon and T-Mobile phones were on roaming, thinking we were in Canada and our Verizon mifi was weak, but usable. Nice grassy spot, mostly level. Beautiful view of the water from the point, very quiet area. We camped at Sunset Point RV Trailer Park in a Motorhome.

Wild Duck Campground & RV Park (Adult Only), Scarborough, Maine

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

Very friendly managers, park is very clean, our site was pretty level. Some sites appear to be more spacious than others. Lovely flowers in bloom not only grounds maintained by campground but in pots from other seasonal campers. Very quiet area away from any main roads, yet also very convenient to Portland and Cape Elizabeth. Interior roads are paved but narrow, bumpy, and rutted - doable if you go slow. We camped between a park model and permanent trailer and backed up to the woods. We would stay here again if we were in the area. Price reflects weekly rate minus tax. We camped at Wild Duck Campground & RV Park (Adult Only) in a Motorhome.

Sandy Pond Campground, Plymouth, Massachusetts

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $49.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed here for two weeks leading up to Memorial Weekend, so we had it nice and quiet. VERY quiet at night until about 5:30a when tons of birds started their dawn chorus, which we liked. Wild turkeys, frogs, dense woods all around the area, plenty of nature. Great location for exploring surrounding area - Plymouth, The Vineyard, Hyannis, the canal. Our site wasn't very level, but that might not be the case for all of them. Sandy site and sand gets everywhere! It seems there are more seasonal and repeat campers than transients, they even had a "Seasonals Pot Luck". Approach roads are winding and rolling with not much shoulder, but doable. Interior roads had a lot of pot holes, but wide and no trees overhanging and scraping. Some sections have large shade trees, we were in a more open area with some evergreens between campsites. We had a back in site with lots of space between our side neighbors, but if we walked around the back of our RV we were at our (seasonal) neighbors grill. Our Verizon mifi and T-Mobile were weak, Verizon cell worked fine. Level of friendliness in the front office depends on who's working that day. Based on the location we would stay here again. We camped at Sandy Pond Campground in a Motorhome.

Sweetwater Forest Family Camping Resort, Brewster, Massachusetts

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $42.00
Overall Rating:

As others have noted, it is a beautiful campground nestled in the woods. We stayed here in our 40 ft motorhome + tow, and it was very challenging maneuvering the tight turns and backing in to our site in C loop. Branches need to be trimmed so they don't scrape the roof, and we had to position our RV in our site so slides wouldn't hit branches. Large pot holes added to the white-knuckle drive. The few spaces near the office should really be the only ones available to rigs this size. We wouldn't even consider it if you have a motorhome bigger than 40 ft. Great location for exploring the Cape. We were here in early May, stayed for two nights, it was very quiet! Office staff was training a new seasonal employee, everyone very friendly. Our T-Mobile and Verizon service worked fine here. We camped at Sweetwater Forest Family Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

New York City North / Newburgh KOA, Plattekill, New York

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $41.00
Overall Rating:

You better like kids if you're going to stay here. Looks like a great place for kids and families. Tight spots in the woods for big rigs. Very friendly when making reservations and checking in. Interior roads are VERY tight for a 40 foot RV, trees right up to the road, tight turns, and it doesn't help that some campers look like they're permanent and have things like easy up canopies right up to the edge of their site (aka too close to interior road!). We had a back in site with W/E only that was on a corner. Getting into the site with the corner and trees was challenging enough, and we shared the "driveway" with a camper already there with two vehicles. Not ideal. I guess we should have asked more questions when making the reservation, since we're early in the season and there were many empty sites. Site was hard packed gravel and level, interior roads paved. We stayed here for a few days while passing through the area. Over the weekend it was crazy with kids - and lots of activities for them, then became very quiet during the week. Very little road noise - just lots of birds and a few Canadian geese. Our Verizon mifi didn't have great strength here, but it was OK. T-Mobile and Verizon cell service worked fine. We camped at New York City North / Newburgh KOA in a Motorhome.
