Mt Desert Narrows Camping Resort, Bar Harbor, Maine

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $1.00
Overall Rating:

This campground has a variety of campsites, including an impressive tent camping area right on the bay. There are also back-in water/electric sites on the water but they are packed in with neighbors right on top of each other. Up away from the water there's a large section of full hookup sites, some 30 and some 50 amp. Unfortunately for us, none of these sites were currently available to people who come in on the Trails Collection program. However, we were given a nice, grassy water/electric 50 amp "parallel parking" site near the activity center and pool. Really, no complaints. We had neighbors in front and behind us but there was room for parking, etc. Our front lawn was somewhat narrow with the road passing by. Again, no complaints. The pool is heated, making it nice even on cooler days. The staff was always friendly and helpful. We enjoyed free ice cream one afternoon and when I asked someone if my fire pit could be cleaned the fellow cheerfully stopped right then and took care of it for me. We really enjoyed having the Island Explorer Shuttle stopping right at the campground. Using the shuttles we could make connections to downtown Bar Harbor and most of the famous spots in the park. The campground WiFi was decent and several sites have cable TV. I had a weaker but usable 4G Verizon signal and got satellite TV with no problem. We camped at Mt Desert Narrows Camping Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Homestead by the River, Biddeford, Maine

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

We enjoyed our time at this campground. The campground is on the Saco River and has a variety of campsites including many seasonal sites, grassy water/electric sites, FHU back-in sites, and a number of tent sites near the river. We opted for a 30 amp, FHU spot and really liked it. Our site was spacious and bordered by evergreens on both sides, providing a nice level of privacy. The campground has several farm animals, including horses, and a large children's play area. There's a nice swimming area on the river that got a lot of use over the weekend. The campground wasn't cheap, but compared to many in the area it was as good or better than most. We think Homestead is a nice campground and we recommend it to those looking for a spot in the area. We camped at Homestead by the River in a Fifth Wheel.

Adventure Resorts Of America and Quinebaug Cove Campground, Brimfield, Massachusetts

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $14.00
Overall Rating:

One of our campground memberships is with RPI and this campground is included in that membership. We are supposed to be able to stay in RPI campgrounds for $10 but booking costs another $2 and, upon arrival I was informed that since I wanted electricity there is another $3 a night tacked on. It's still a low price but a surcharge for electricity seems a bit over the top to me. Anyway, our campsite was reasonably level and very close to our neighbors on each side. Really, there is barely room for an awning to be put out. Also, since the campsites are rather shallow, the only place to park our pickup was between us and the folks next to us. This makes the "packed in" feeling even more pronounced. There are other sites for travelers at the top of a rather steep hill. I saw several campers up there, and the sites are roomier, but I wasn't sure I wanted to pull our 5th wheel up such a steep hill. Since our stay was only two nights I was okay with the tight quarters where we were. The campground has a nice big pool and several kids were enjoying it. My Verizon signal was great and I was able to get satellite TV by putting our tripod just outside our front door and raising it to its maximum height. Everyone I talked to in the campground, especially the staff, was friendly and helpful. I think this place is okay for travelers who want a brief stop or for those who want a seasonal spot to get out of the city. As a traveler it wouldn't be very high on my list as a place to spend anything beyond a night or two. We camped at Adventure Resorts Of America and Quinebaug Cove Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Rondout Valley Resort Thousand Trails, Accord, New York

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $1.00
Overall Rating:

I think the best thing about Rondout Valley is its location. While most attractions aren't exactly close, they are nearby. The campground, itself, has a big pool that stays quite busy. There's an Activity building with a café, a rather worn Adult Lodge, a camp store, and a few sports venues. We saw many children having a wonderful time biking the roads and enjoying all the campground has to offer. Rondout Valley has many seasonal and permanent campers. That does limit the number of sites available for others, but, from what I could tell there were a few vacant spots available most of our stay. The big rigs prefer the spots along the main road in. These are 50 amp/FHU sites. Those on the north side of the road have a chance at getting satellite TV. The sites are plenty deep, but are pretty close side to side. There are also 30 amp/FHU sites that would work for bigger rigs. Really, things are spread out to the point that I'm not sure I got a handle on what sites are where. The main roads in and around the campground are nicely paved. Other roads are gravel with potholes. The restrooms are older and often in need of attention, especially over the weekend when the place was packed out. If anything, I'd say this campground is being loved to death and that leaves an overall feeling of it being too well used. I was able to get satellite TV without any problem and my Verizon data was solid. We camped at Rondout Valley Resort Thousand Trails in a Fifth Wheel.

Timothy Lake Campground South - Thousand Trails, East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $1.00
Overall Rating:

This is a large campground with plenty of nice, full-hookup, 50 amp sites. The roads are all paved and wide enough for RVs. There are many pull-through spots as well as a great number of back-in sites around the parameter. Generally speaking, the campsites are plenty long enough for even the biggest rigs. While they aren't exactly on top of each other, the sites are pretty close side to side. Many big rigs head for the "top" where there is plenty maneuvering room and no trees to block rooftop satellite dish usage. The pool is a nice one and well used, especially on the weekends. While the restrooms in the Activity/Store building are nice and well-kept I was disappointed in the condition of the others. They were worn and often in need of cleaning. My Verizon data was slow but usable most of the time. However, we opted to pay for campground WiFi for the week. It was fast and reliable. Also, I was able to get my Dish satellite signal with no problem. While there are plenty of campsites, it should be noted that a lot of sites have been taken by seasonal campers. The drive in (and up) from Hwy 209 merits a mention. The roads, Winona Falls and then Timothy Lake are narrow and pretty steep. When coming in pay particular attention when turning off of Winona Falls onto Timothy Lake. Oncoming traffic on Winona Falls isn't visible until you are right at the the left hand turn. That traffic doesn't have a stop sign. When leaving the campground that same intersection puts you at the bottom of a steep hill, requiring a full stop before turning right onto Winona Falls. In other words, keep your transmission in a low gear and keep your speed way down. Then, be sure you can see traffic coming from your left before committing to the right hand turn. Having said all that, I don't want to scare anyone about coming to this campground. The route in is only 3 miles and literally thousands of RV's have made the trip in. This is a nice place and we look forward coming back. We camped at Timothy Lake Campground South - Thousand Trails in a Fifth Wheel.

Woodland Campground, Woodland, Pennsylvania

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

This campground is a former KOA and is close to I-80 but I don't think we could hear the traffic at all. There are several pull-through sites tiered on a hill as well as a number of longer term back in sites plus many seasonal spots in the trees on the north side of the campground. Our pull-through site was level and utilities convenient. The WiFi was good. The primary feature is a small, but pretty lake that is filled with bluegill. The campground has fishing gear to loan to anyone who wants to get in of the fun. On Saturday the campground was full and there were activities for campers of all ages with wagon rides, a corn-hole contest, and other events. Then, since we were still close to Independence Day there was a fireworks show over the lake. I had no problem getting my satellite TV signal and my Verizon data was good. We camped at Woodland Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Thousand Trails / Kenisee Lake, Jefferson, Ohio

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $1.00
Overall Rating:

This campground has many nice campsites. The big rigs have some really long pull through, 50 amp, FHU sites that are out in the open. There are also a number of back in sites suitable for most any sized rig. Other areas of the campground have more trees. Most of those sites are 30 amp FHU sites. Many are big enough for bigger rigs, but are popular with those with smaller rigs. Kenisee Lake is an unusual Thousand Trails in that campsites are assigned rather than the usual pick-your-own-site approach. It works here because those with larger RVs are happy to park in the big 50 amp sites. Those with the smaller rigs are happy to park in the prettier sites near the lake. Everyone likes the set up with people being assigned suitable sites. If there was a mixture of FHU and W/E only sites there would be a lot of pushback about this campground breaking with the Thousand Trails first-come-first-served policy but, as it is, people are okay with this approach. It might be worth noting that the big rig portion of the campground has no restroom or bathhouse. Also, as is the rule rather than the exception, there are many sites that have been sold to seasonals. The main feature of Kenisee Lake is, well, Kenisee Lake - a pretty lake. There is also a small pool, nice mini-golf course, basketball court, Activity Center, and other amenities. The tenting area is more popular than we usually see at Thousand Trails. My Verizon signal was usable but not strong. Data throughput was slow but workable, especially using the signal booster. I had no problem getting satellite TV. During our stay the weather wasn't great. It seemed to be either raining or, when the rain ended, very hot and humid. While the gravel surface of our campsite kept us above water the rest of the campsite tended to go underwater. Of course, we can't blame the campground for the weather but it would be nice to not have to wade through water to get in and out of the RV. We camped at Thousand Trails / Kenisee Lake in a Fifth Wheel.

Twin Mills Resort, Howe, Indiana

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $1.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed at this campground using our Thousand Trails "Trails Collection" membership. The campground itself is an older campground with over 500 sites. Most, if not all, of the sites have electric and water. Many have full hookups. The main clientele is made up of seasonal campers. There are many nicely done spots, with park model trailers and attractive landscaping. There are also many sites for traveling/weekend campers. Less of them are FHU, but many of them are. The campsites are in a primarily pine forest with lots of shade (and pinecones). There's a big pool, a few playgrounds, and limited lake access. Only a very few spots actually afford lake views and they have been occupied by permanent residents for many years. Over the weekend the place was very busy. The campground, while not full, was well used and there were activities, mainly for the kids. It seemed that everyone had a campfire and at times the smoke was so thick it looked as if a heavy fog had descended on the place. Once the weekend passed and the majority of the campers left, the air cleared. Our only big complaint was associated with our arrival. Unlike Thousand Trails which is (supposedly) first-come-first-served so far as campsites are concerned, the Trails Collection campgrounds let you specify your site amenities, if available. At least that's how it is supposed to work. When we reserved we were told we would get a FHU site. When we arrived we were told that, in spite of the many vacant FHU sites, that we would have to take a water/electric site. That didn't work well for us, especially since we were in for a longer stay. Ultimately, we were given a FHU site. The lesson is, apparently, that even if you reserve a site with certain amenities you may not get them when you arrive. Otherwise, we enjoyed our stay there and would return. We camped at Twin Mills Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Cedar Lake Bible Retreat & RV Park, Cedar Lake, Indiana

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

This campground is located about an hour southeast of Chicago in northwestern Indiana. It's history reaches back over 100 years when Chicago's Moody Church took over management of a railroad recreation destination on a large lake. The ministry at this retreat center continues to this day. The Center's nice RV park is open to the public. It offers FHU back in sites, some with 50 amp electric service. The sites aren't especially deep, but there is adequate parking for extra vehicles. The bathhouse is nicely done and clean. Water spigots are on shared hookups between every other site, equally unhandy to those on both sides so extra water hose will likely be needed. WiFi was pretty good although we did get frequent drops requiring us to reconnect. The sites on the north side of the road in and out are most likely to be satellite friendly. There is no direct lake access but it is just a short walk to the public portion of the retreat center where there are benches along the lake, affording nice views. My Verizon signal was good. We camped at Cedar Lake Bible Retreat & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Indian Creek COE, Monroe City, Missouri

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $12.00
Overall Rating:

We really liked this campground with it's many great, wooded, paved sites with nice separation. This corps facility is on Mark Twain Lake, but none of the sites are actually on the lake. A few overlook the water down below but most are in the woods. The roads are excellent and the individual sites are a mixture of electric only and full hookups. I think all the sites offer up to 50 amp service. The sites are long and pretty level side to side but most have a slope front to back. To get level our 5th wheel was "kneeling down" significantly. In the Eastern campground my Verizon 4G signal was very good. There are a few things you might want to know. First this campground is out in the boonies. Once you leave Morgan City you are still about 15 miles out into the country to the campground, much of that on smooth, but speed limited roads. It is around 45 minutes to the closest Walmart in Hannibal. Second, we battled both ticks and swarming gnats. Third, if you want satellite, pick your campsite carefully. Generally, you want one on the north side of a road. Those on the west side of a road would be especially blocked from having an eye to the sky. We camped at Indian Creek COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Bucksaw Campground COE, Clinton, Missouri

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $12.00
Overall Rating:

This campground is located on Truman Reservoir. It is a bit off the beaten track, especially for those traveling west to east. The north/south route into the area is more traveled and a better road. Clinton is close by; about 20 minutes. There are many campsites ranging from tent sites to water-electric to full hookup. Most of the FHU sites are in Loop C. If you want to be close to the lake, you might opt for electric only or water/electric sites in Loop B. Also several of the tent sites are close to the lake. When you reserve pay attention to site size. Not all sites will accommodate a larger RV. The mixture of hookups is surprising - one side of the road, FHU - the other side, electric only. -Or- the section of FHU sites with just one W/E only pull through in the middle of them. The FHU sites were filled with reserved tags on them all the time we were at Bucksaw, so if you want one of these sites you might want to reserve one and not arrive assuming one will be available to you. This campground is so big that several tenting loops are closed off. Really, I doubt that this place is ever full. Not only is it a big campground, but it is surrounded by lots of other campgrounds, both public and commercial. The big draw here is, of course, the lake which actually feels more like a river in the vicinity of the campground. In addition to all the fishing and boating opportunities (there's a nearby marina) the campground has a nice swimming beach that, I think, is pretty popular. B Loop is in easy walking distance of the beach and A Loop isn't much farther. C Loop isn't as close but is a walkable distance. One thing you might want to know is that Verizon cell service is poor. I ran my cell booster and managed to get a semi-usable data signal part of the time. Without it there was almost nothing. A lady told me that AT&T was better here. Satellite TV was fairly easy to get but, as it always is with satellite, campsite location does make or break it. We camped at Bucksaw Campground COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Santa Fe Park, Chanute, Kansas

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $1.00
Overall Rating:

We spent a couple of nights here as we prepared to drop our 5th wheel off for service at NuWa. My guess is that over half the RVers who come to this city campground are here because of NuWa service and sales. No one can argue with the price: free for the first two nights, then just $10 a night after that. The campsites are basically parking lot sites with 30/50 amp electric and water. There is a dump station on site. This city campground even offers free WiFi! There are two sections. The east side is closest to S. Santa Fe Ave. and has all pull through sites and has the good WiFi signal. The west side sites are all back in and are close to restrooms (not well kept) and beyond the range of the WiFi. However, the sites are a bit wider and longer. They are also close to the dump station. We spent one night in the eastern section and then moved to a back in spot so we could stay hooked up and be ready to report in to the service center early the next morning. Some of the pull through sights are are just barely wide enough for two RVs. People who are trading RV's park the two rigs "face to face" so they can more easily move their belongings to their new digs. This is perhaps the only time you'll ever see a RVer happy to have another rig parked very close by! While Chanute isn't exactly a tourist destination, this is a great small town campground for a great price. We camped at Santa Fe Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Warrior RV Park, Tulsa, Oklahoma

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

The park is located right on I44 and near Hwy 75. This is an older park, mostly pull-throughs. Our site was barely long enough for pickup and hooked up camper. All the connections are at the back of the site so I had to get out an extra water hose and add a sewer hose connection. The water connect is underground. I had to get down on my knees to connect the water hose. The owners are friendly and accomodating. I asked about parking and they directed me to some nearby sites that they didn't expect to use and told me that any of them are fine. They also offered to help me hook up the water if I was having trouble getting to the spigot. Yes, you can hear the traffic, but when you pick an RV park beside an interstate you can't expect much else. The restrooms are older. When we were there they needed cleaning, but it looked like the need was the result of recent activity. Our Verizon signal was good, campground WiFi worked fine, and I had no problem getting a satellite TV signal. We camped at Warrior RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Thousand Trails Lake Whitney, Whitney, Texas

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $3.00
Overall Rating:

This is a large campground with many camp sites. There are a few 50 amp sites, but they are limited in number with many sold to annuals. When we arrived on an April Monday there were still three 50 amp sites available to us so we picked the one we liked best and settled in. There are three camping loops: A, B, and D (loop C isn't open to the public). Loop D is closest to the campground entrance. While most of the campsites are full hookup, 30 amp sites you want to know that there are water-electric only sites scattered around the campground. You'll want to keep the campground map before you as you pick your site. Loop A, which is the farthest in from the entrance (over a mile) has a row of pull through sites. Again, keep an eye on your campground map as some don't have a sewer hookup. We had a nice 50 amp back-in site. While we weren't alone, there were many vacant spots all around us, making for a quiet, enjoyable stay. We were also an easy walking distance to the Adult Lodge. (I'll mention that the road by Loop A is bordered by a golf course and once we came within just a few feet of being hit by a golf ball.) Neither of the pools were open yet but we checked out the game room, workout room, and lodge. A bit farther is the parking lot for those wanting to hike the trail taking them off the Thousand Trails property down to Lake Whitney. Really, there's not much reason to come to Lake Whitney Thousand Trails to enjoy Lake Whitney. The only real negative to Lake Whitney Thousand Trails is the roads. Honestly, they are really bad. The mile in from the highway to Loop A gets worse the farther you get into the campground. While we liked the campground and enjoyed the campsite we certainly didn't like bringing our camper in over the pothole filled road. If I were rating this campground based on campsites and amenities, I think I would give it an eight. However, if you factor in the roads that rating drops down to maybe a six. We camped at Thousand Trails Lake Whitney in a Fifth Wheel.

Midway Park COE, Waco, Texas

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $14.00
Overall Rating:

This park is on Lake Waco, on the west side of the city of Waco. It is just a few minutes west of I35. Most of the sites in this smaller park are back-in, 30 amp, water/electric sites. Several offer nice views of the lake. Most are shady, with covered picnic tables. There are a few "double-wide" sites in which two RVs share a spot that has two electric/water hookups. Also, a few have fairly steep ramps. Most of these sites are very long - long enough for any RV. There is one row of pull-through, 50 amp, full hookup sites. All of these have covered picnic tables. The sites are a bit closer together but not unreasonably so. Honestly, these aren't the best sites in the park. The reason is that they are located along the Highway 6 frontage road. This is a busy expressway with lots of traffic. The road noise is pretty much constant, 24 hours a day. Also, people with really big rigs might want to know that making the turn to drive into these pull-throughs is rather tight. There's a small, but nice playground and big boat ramp. The roads are excellent. Our Verizon had a solid 4G signal and I had no problem getting my TV satellite signal. That might not be true in some of the more wooded sites. We camped at Midway Park COE in a Fifth Wheel.
