Nice State Park near St. Louis. Electric only hookups worked well on our 50 amp site. Camp hosts maintain a nice clean campground. Mix of shaded and open sites. No parking on grass is enforced and the results show - no muddy areas next to camp pads or roads. Lots of nice grassy areas. Pads were concrete of varying shapes and sizes. Electric hookups were located properly. Be careful of two of the campsite "loops" as they have a very small cul-de-sac for turning around at the end. My 35' 5th wheel was challenging to turn around at the end of the 50 amp premium loop. Many large Class A rigs were able to turn around. That loop actually had mostly Class A rigs in it. The 30 amp loop had a large turnaround area and had sites with the most open grassy spaces for kids to run around.

Great beach front camping on the Chesapeake Bay. Campsites are very sandy (this is a beach remember) and have good 50 Amp power and water at each site. No sewer or dump station, just a honey wagon service twice a week. The weekends are very busy here as the location is so great. Each campsite has a campfire ring on the beach behind the campsite. A great place to have a beach campfire. Swim, wade, boat right from the beach behind the campsite. The campsites are packed full on weekends as is the nearby day-use area. During the week it is much less crowded. There is a pretty big marina right next door also. The sites are nice and long but fairly narrow. The beach area behind the campsites is a nice large shared use area for campers only. It is a nice sized beach that provides lots of room for the campers to spread out on right behind your campsite. Reservations are by telephone only. This is a County Park run by Calvert County, Maryland.

This is a good place for an overnight when passing through. I called and told them we would be arriving late and the camp host cheerfully stayed up (till 9PM) when we arrived. The campground was clean, the grass was mowed and there were good gravel roads in the campground. and they gave us a pull through site as we were just passing through. Dump station on the way out. Water and 30 amp service at the site. Nice RV/camping signs were posted from the interstate that led you to the site. Maybe 2 miles from the exit. There is a small truck stop at that interstate exit also. This is not a resort, but a nice place to stop for the night when passing through.

This is a nice relaxing National Forest camp ground. Paved roads and paved pads. A few sites have 30 Amp electric that worked very well. Several threaded water spigots available to fill fresh water tanks from. No dump station - need to dump at a private RV resort. Huge sites but some of the RV pads were narrow with big drop offs at one or both sides of the pavement. The paved entrance road and camp roads are well maintained. The entrance road was due for some tree trimming, but it was not too bad - had to drive around a few low-hanging branches. Overall this is a great place to get away and enjoy the forest, Huzzah creek with its really neat brown gravel and the very tall red bluffs.

We stopped here at the last minute when we were tired of driving. The site was sandy and not quite level. We had a full hookup site that backed up to a ravine with a stream. While making dinner a mama bear and her 3 cubs visited the site next door to us - the people at that site were not there at the time. The office was good about warning about bears. It was a busy campground (Saturday night in July) with lots of kids and families walking around. While the site has 30 amp electric, you are not allowed to use an air conditioner as their wiring can't handle it. There were some permanent RV sites or "snowmobile camps" as many called themselves. There is a water park and small amusement park right next door that runs shuttle buses back and forth all day. Not a bad place to visit for one night. Many people clearly like staying there for longer time periods.

Very neat and clean park with trimmed grass and well maintained grounds. Very pretty actually. Sites are fairly level and some pull through sites available. We called to reserve a site for one night "just passing through", and they gave us a great pull-through site on the end of a row. Very thoughtful of them, especially since they knew we would arrive after the office was closed and getting dark. Hookups were in great shape and well located. Sites are on a hill with a nice view of I-78 and nice rolling farms. Noise from I-78 is noticeable but not annoying.

Decent RV campground. Full hookups. Close to the NYC Metro North train station so easy access to the city if you need that. Paved roads, grassy level sites, gravel pads, shade trees. Pad sizes vary, but the office knows what size rigs fit where. Can be hard to make a reservation - you have to call during business hours and they don't always answer the phone during business hours. I would stay here again if I had to be in the area for some reason. I prefer more rural campgrounds. Considering that this campground is in the NYC metro area, it is really quite nice.

Quiet park with friendly staff. Pet friendly with a nice pond to walk around. Shaded sites. Most are pull-through with full hook ups. Dirt sites and not totally level. We were pleasantly surprised with the campground. It is just a mile or two off of I-95 and very quiet and well maintained.

This is a beautiful park with large pull-through dirt campsites on an island surrounded by salt-marsh. The campground seems very popular with boaters as there is a boat launch in the campground with lots of boat trailer parking. There is a separate boat ramp area on the mainland for non-campers. Touring the earth works of the civil war fort is fun, interesting. and scenic. The only down side to this campground was the smell from the paper mill in Savannah was very noticeable the day we were there. The mill is about 10 miles (or more) away, but the wind conditions were just right that day to make it noticeable for several hours at least. When I asked a staff person who was working indoors what the smell was, she said it could be the low tide smell or the paper mill in Savannah.

This is a very pretty park with lots of Spanish Moss draped live oaks lining the roads, hiking/biking trails and even most of the campsites. We had reserved one of the newly renovated full hook up sites and they were almost too good to be true. All the sites are large and well spaced from each other, but the full hook up sites were upgraded with crushed stone pull-through sites that must have been 90 feet long. They included a large crushed stone area with picnic table and fire ring. The rest of the sites (with only water and electric) were large dirt and grass sites. Some of the regular sites were quite large and well separated from other sites. There are several miles of trails for hiking and biking through the forest and through the salt marsh. This is a very nice park. And convenient to downtown Savannah.

This is a charming, rustic, and small state park on a small lake. Water and 30 amp electric at all sites. Dirt roads and dirt campsites are laid out among the trees. We had a 30 foot RV and had no problem driving through the campground during daylight, but there are lots of trees making several turns kind of tight. You don't want to arrive after dark. Not big rig friendly. Many of the campsites were challenging to back a trailer into due to the locations of various trees. Dump station is conveniently located and easy to access when leaving. If you like natural settings in a peaceful location, then you will like this place. We would definitely stay here again when we are passing by on I-95.

The campground has very shady sites as this is a wooded campground in Northern New Jersey. It is at 1,200 foot elevation in a mature hardwood forest with some nice size rocks and boulders everywhere. Nicely separated sites. Easy to back into. There is a grass field that kids can run around in, but this is really a quiet, wooded and private county park campground. On a hot 4th of July, six adults sat outside the camper all day in the shade and enjoyed the beautiful weather and trees. Nice relaxing environment, but also lots of trails through the woods. Lots of wildlife also.

The campground was busy with adults and kids on a late June weekend. Lots of people on the roads all day long in golf carts, on bicycles, in trucks and cars and just walking. Everybody was polite and friendly to each other. Lots of amenities and activities there. Two nice dog parks here also. One for small dogs and one for big dogs. A great place for the dogs to run off leash and get tired out. We usually camp at state parks but in late June we wanted to camp near Assateague at a site with electricity so we could use the Air Conditioner for sleeping if needed. We spent most of the time on the beach at Assateague on Saturday - actually drove a couple miles down the beach with my Over Sand Vehicle permit. We were there on a late June weekend so it was a pretty much full campground. The waterfront amenities are surprisingly nice with beautiful views of the Sinepuxent Bay. I was pleasantly surprised with the campsite. . The check-in person was great.

Very shady in the Elk Loop. Old bathhouse but reasonably clean. Pet friendly with lots of trails. We found two beach areas accessible by hiking down a steep embankment that were great for wading and dog walking / splashing. There are lots of camping loops with some difference in character. Some loops are very shady with huge trees and others have some shade but more open.

This is a nice quiet campground on the Eastern Shore of Maryland - about 30 minutes from the Chesapeake Bay Bridge. The sites are mostly shady. There are 2 loops, one with Electricity and one without electricity. There is a lake with a nice playground and picnic area. There is also a nice creek for kayaking - best to go upstream from the lake. The creek is very shady and has a couple places with sand/gravel bar that you can get out and do some wading and splashing around. Several nice hiking trails also. A nice quiet State Park campground.
