Douglas Headwater Campgrounds, Sevierville, Tennessee

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $18.00
Overall Rating:

We really liked this campground which is located right at the dam with great access and views. There is also a Tailwaters campground below the dam. We didn't get a chance to check it out. This is a TVA campground, very similar to a Corps of Engineers campground which are favorites of ours. The campsites have water and 50 amp hookups. Many of the campsites are large enough for most any camper. We were in a pull through site on the hill overlooking the lake. The only negative was that the site sloped left to right. There are also several beautiful back in sites down close to the water - I'd likely try to get one of those on future trips. Not all sites on the hill will accomodate all rigs, so be sure to pay attention when booking your site. Aside from size, we thought we would have been happy in most any of the spots we could fit into. I had no problem getting a satellite signal and our Verizon 4G was good. We think this campground is a real winner and will happily return on future visits to this beautiful area. We camped at Douglas Headwater Campgrounds in a Fifth Wheel.

Fort Chiswell RV Park, Max Meadows, Virginia

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

Most people who come to this campground only stop for the night as they travel I81/I77 across southwestern Virginia and it is a great spot for that kind of stay. The campground is just minutes from the interstate, but far enough from it that there is no sound of traffic. In fact, the campground is surrounded by pastures with several cattle and sheep. Most all of the campsites are pull through and long enough for even bigger RVs. The sites are all 50 amp/FHU and most are nicely level. There's a small pool, a laundry, and large well-kept restrooms. During the day there are few RVs - mostly the long term residents who are parked around the perimeter of the property. However, in the early afternoon a steady stream of rigs start arriving and by night the place is full. The next morning things are reversed and by 10:00 or so, it is empty again. Our stay was for four nights. This gave us time to look around the area a bit; and there are a few attractions worth seeing. However, for most everyone, including us when we pass this way again, this is a good spot for the night with easy and convenient access along the way. We camped at Fort Chiswell RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Shenandoah Valley Campground, Verona, Virginia

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $56.00
Overall Rating:

The campground is reasonably near I81, nestled in the Middle River valley. The campground is all about that river, which is a gentle stream, perfect for tubing most of the time. Then, near the popular tenting area is the real gem of the campground: a beautiful waterfall dropping in from the higher ground opposite the campground. Our stay was brief and in the week following heavy rains from what was Hurricane Florence. With the river running high (and it was flooding the campground in the days prior to our arrival), the waterfall was stunning. We stayed in the section near the store, which is above the large camping area on the river. After the Hurricane Florence related flooding the campground staff worked many hours putting fresh gravel down throughout the large water-front area of the campground which is all gravel - roads and campsites. This is a destination campground with a large, heated pool and several hot tubs located indoors. There's also a nice fishing lake and a couple of playgrounds. The kids have a blast bike riding, fishing, tubing, swimming, and feeding the many mostly-tame rabbits. WiFi is slow and only available in the campground store. My Verizon signal was poor to zero. I got a satellite signal but due to the trees not many people would. The biggest negative for us is that the sites themselves are pretty tight with neighbors very close in on both sides. After a night of rain on Saturday night a staff member knocked on our door telling us that the entire campground was being evicted by the sheriff's office. The issue wasn't flooding in the campground. Rather, it was the county road leading to the campground that was in danger of going underwater. We were told that we needed to be out within the hour. This wasn't any fault of the campground and I'm not under the impression that it happens very often. Also, from their website, I think they were only closed one day. We give this campground a thumbs up, but did feel it was rather expensive. We camped at Shenandoah Valley Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Outdoor World / Gettysburg Farm Campground, Dover, Pennsylvania

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

This campground is actually located around 18 miles northeast of the historic town of Gettysburg, but it is, indeed, a farm. There are fields, barns, and lots of farm animals. There are posted petting zoo times for those who want to get up close and personal with many of the animals. We arrived right at the end of the campground's second flooding event of the season. Conewago Creek skirts the campground and with all the rain Pennsylvania has had this summer, the creek has gotten out of hand at times. Most of the campsites aren't impacted by the creek, but one section is right along the creek. It was closed because of the wet conditions. I think those campsites and a few others are the only water/electric only spots in the park. The campground does, though, offer free "honey wagon" service to those without sewer. It was my impression that bigger rigs would fit better in the "city" portion of the campground, wet conditions or no. The majority of the campground is about equally divided between 30 and 50 amp full hookup back in spots, except for one row of back-to-back sites. Aside from the site differences I just described, I felt that the spots in the campground were pretty much equal with an adequate amount of space and level sites. As usual, many spots have been leased out to long term residents. That, along with having many creekside sites out of service, caused the remaining sites to be mostly all occupied over the weekends. During the week, though, there were a few vacant spots for travelers. We arrived the week after Labor Day and the pool was already drained for the winter. There's a cute mini-golf course and nice basketball/pickleball area. There's a small store that also serves food. My Verizon signal was weak but usable most of the time. I had no problem getting satellite TV. This being a nice campground that is near some interesting attractions makes, I think, Gettysburg Farm Thousand Trails a real winner. We camped at Outdoor World / Gettysburg Farm Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Hershey RV & Camping Resort, Lebanon, Pennsylvania

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

When we were at Hershey before we picked a site on the hill of Loop H. The 50 amp sites in that area don't have the $3 a day surcharge that is charged for all the other 50 amp sites in the campground. However, I must confess we got a bit tired of the big hill. For this stay we decided to check out Loop B. We found a great spot and felt we made an excellent choice. About all but the sites in Loop A (which has some very nice spots) are full hookup. Honestly, it isn't hard to find a nice campsite in this Thousand Trails. Every interaction we had with the staff was positive and we appreciated their helpfulness. My only complaint is the lack of internet connectivity. My Verizon signal was poor leaving me with only a fair data connect. Campground WiFi is only available at the Activity Center and it is even slower - think old time dial-up speeds. It isn't that the campground hasn't tried to supply WiFi. The area providers simply aren't willing to come out to the campground. My satellite TV signal was easy to dial in. There are many interesting things to see and do in the area as well as a nice pool and other facilities right on the property. Lots of shopping and restaurants are within 30 minutes. It is easy to see why Hershey Thousand Trails is one of the most popular campgrounds in the system. We are already thinking about our next visit. We camped at Hershey RV & Camping Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Bear Creek Campground, Bristol, Connecticut

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $34.00
Overall Rating:

This campground is located at Lake Compounce amusement park and it features cabins, teepees, a tenting area, and, of course, a large RV area. The campsites are laid out with water-electric hookups located in a shared grassy area on the driver's side of the sites. If the place is full, there will be a shared front yard between campers as well. Most people, I think, come to spend a few days at the amusement park. There's even a shuttle operating from the campground to the main gate of the park. The campground is about 10 minutes from I84 and the campsites are all pull-through, making it a handy place for an overnight stay. The sites are all water/electric (30/50 amp), no sewer. Individual shower rooms are available. There is campground WiFi - ours got slower as the evening progressed. There's a nearby power plant that can be heard non-stop in the near distance. I had a strong 4G signal and, since the campsites are pretty much out in the open, satellite TV is no problem. The campground has a play area, but the main recreation is the amusement park. We camped at Bear Creek Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Moody Beach RV Campground, Wells, Maine

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

The timing of our August stay at here put us in a popular area at its most popular time. Traffic up and down Highway 1 was more often than not backed up. The campground, too, was filled to capacity nightly. This campground is tight. There are many "parallel parking" spots that were laid out before rigs got as large as they are today. Some would work but many would be a challenge for the average big rig. In the "back" of the campground there are several pull-through "back to back" sites. The camper on the driver's side is very close. You then share a front yard with the camper on the passenger side of the camper. Depending on how people park their rigs this setup works fairly well. One complicating factor is that many sites have been rented out to long-term campers. Those folks tend to spread out to the very limit of their campsites. If you happen to have permanents on both sides of you it can feel even more packed in that it is already. Because of the narrow roads and placement of trees I couldn't get into the first site we tried. I moved to a different one and got in okay. Getting out was a bit of a challenge because of how the permanent site next to us was set up, keeping me from making the left hand exit I should have been able to make. Getting satellite TV anywhere in the campground is a challenge. Some people manage it, but you shouldn't arrive expecting to get satellite TV. My Verizon signal was marginal but generally usable. We paid for campground WiFi. I would give it a B- grade. Weekend evenings were pretty sluggish. I think all the sites are FHU - many are 50 amp. The campground is behind a large miniature golf course and not visible from Highway 1. Look for the big Wonder Mountain Fun Park sign. Next to that sign is, indeed, the Moody Beach Campground sign. You turn there, as though you are going to the miniature golf course. The campground offers shuttle van service to Footbridge Beach. The price is nominal and parking at the beach is expensive. We camped at Moody Beach RV Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Schoodic Woods Campground, Winter Harbor, Maine

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

This campground is located on the Schoodic Peninsula section of the National Park. This is considered the "quiet side" of the park with Mt Desert Island containing all the famous landmarks and Schoodic being more laid back. The booking window for this campground is 6 months and I got online the earliest day I could book for the dates of our stay. At that time there were only a few remaining available sites. It is located just outside the small town of Winter Harbor. The pull-through sites of Loop B are some of the longest we've ever seen. Spacing between the sites is also more than generous. We can see our neighbors through the trees but there's a great feeling of privacy throughout the campground. The sites in this loop all offer 50 amp electric and water. There's even free campground WiFi. Here's a tip for WiFi - book sites nearer the restrooms for the strongest WiFi signals. My Verizon worked okay, ranging from 1 to 3 bars of 4G and I had no problem getting satellite TV. The campground has a "dark skies" policy. That means there are no strings of LED lights, bug zappers, etc. It also means that you can sit out at night and count the shooting stars and watch satellites gliding across the sky with the backdrop of the Milky Way clearly visible. Take advantage of the dark skies policy to see the beauty of the night sky. The roads are paved and the sites are gravel. The restrooms were always clean. You want to know that there are no showers at the campground. A few businesses in town offer showers for a price. There's a NPS shuttle bus that serves the Peninsula, including stops in the two nearby small communities where there are restaurants, a small grocery, and a few shops - all can be visited without starting your own vehicle. If the campsites here were full hookup, or if, at least, showers were offered, I'd give Schoodic Woods a perfect score. As it is, though, it ranks as one of our favorite campgrounds of all time. We camped at Schoodic Woods Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

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

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.
