Jones Station RV Park, Mebane, North Carolina

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $34.00
Overall Rating:      

See April 2017 review. SInce then, entry road is now asphalt paved and owner is continually dressing the interior roads with new gravel. THis is the third time we've stayed here for an overnight and it continues to be a great place to stop. The office called me before I arrived to give me the site number and in park directions which were easy to follow. Office closes at 5 more or less and we've yet to actually see it staffed due to arriving late and leaving early. Wifi in the front was good with no issues. OTA TV gets you the basics and the front row or two should be OK for satellite. Hook ups are good but they can be a bit spread out and extensions might be needed. Gravel site was level enough to auto level. Pull throughs are long enough to stay connected to a tow. We camped at Jones Station RV Park in a Motorhome.

Jones Station RV Park, Mebane, North Carolina

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $38.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a relatively new, quiet, peaceful park that is a great place to stop on a trip or to base out of if working or visiting in the area. Not far from I-85 and GPS gets you there cleanly. Interior roads are gravel and the owner's are maintaining them with new material. Gravel is a little loose but time and campers will get it locked in. Site roads are narrow but passable with a big rig with tow although some turns may be challenging. We were able to get to our site and stay hooked but our departure would have been difficult if not for the empty pull through site across from us. All sites but one are full hook up and many are pull throughs. All sites are gravel and most appeared reasonably level. We had no trouble auto leveling without blocks. Sewer connections for some sites will take a longer hose. Sites are typically spaced for a commercial park but reasonable. All sites (but the one EW site) have picnic tables and an old steel wheel as a fire pit. Bath house is new and clean. New playground for any smaller kids but other than that we didn't notice any activities but then again we just stopped overnight going and coming while on a trip. Late arrival s were easily accommodated. Did not try the wifi but saw the antennas. Over the air TV reception was reasonable. Sites are in open or loose woods and noticed a few satellite dishes up and in use. Pet friendly. Will definitely come again if in the area. We camped at Jones Station RV Park in a Motorhome.

South of the Border, Dillon, South Carolina

Date of Stay: January, 2017 - $32.00
Overall Rating:      

OK its Pedro's. Campground was adequate for a one night stop over, particularly if you are self contained and didn't need the restrooms. Campground is gated and key card controlled which is a plus for security. Site roads are asphalt but heavily impacted by tree roots which keeps speeds down. Pull through site driveway was narrow and just wide enough for the vehicle track. Site was level enough for the jacks to stabilize. Connections are about in the middle which was fine for electric but sewer was too far back to connect without removing the toad and moving it around to the front. Restrooms are old. They were clean but not inviting. Counters are low. Stalls are painted cinder block with home made wooden doors with obvious wear. Exterior light was not operational while we were there. Ladies in the party were unimpressed and would prefer to stay elsewhere. Playground was small, old and weather beaten. Auto opening gate for exit wouldn't open without sending someone around through the personnel gate (in the rain) to use the key card reader on the outside. Office is not staffed at night. Because of rain we did not explore any of the "attractions" at Pedro's. We camped at South of the Border in a Motorhome.

Point South KOA, Yemassee, South Carolina

Date of Stay: January, 2017 - $49.00
Overall Rating:      

Small but clean KOA with excellent well cared for facilities. Entrance road is recently placed gravel and gravel site roads are in good condition. Sites are close as typical for a KOA but not unreasonable. Site we had was level enough for the jacks after dumping the suspension. Electric and cable connection needed all of our 25 feet of cable. Site was long enough for my 65 foot rig with tow attached but once in in the site the sewer connection would have been a stretch. Would have been fine if toad was disconnected and parked in front. TV cable service was good. Bathhouse was in excellent condition and clean. Laundry was clean and worked well. On-site pizza was a great addition and made the one night stopover a breeze. Playground was nice for the little ones. We were there on a Saturday night and the quiet hours could have used a little enforcement but by 1030 all was quiet and it didn't wake the kids. Road noise was present but I-95 is a near constant buzz and not a distraction. Train passed in early AM but didn't linger. Would definitely stay here again for a one night transit stop. We camped at Point South KOA in a Motorhome.

Janes Island State Park, Crisfield, Maryland

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $33.00
Overall Rating:      

Rate includes the booking fee. Nice park with nicely separated sites. typical pine forest seashore campground. Not friendly to really big rigs as roads are tight. we were OK with a 35' with tow but have to hit some corners just right to make it and ended up disconnecting part way in. All sites are back in. Bath house was in good shape. Water points were in the center of the loop and a bit inconvenient. Dump station is a tight fit for a big rig and we chose wait until the next park. Nature Center is great for kids and adults. Kayaking is a must here as the "land side" where the campground is just the tip of the park. Most is only accessible by boat and human powered versions are better than motors. Canal that separates the land side form the island side can be busy with boats and jet skis but not a bother. Green spotted flies were beastly. Season runs June-July and we were in the middle of it. They were well controlled in the campground but lay in wait for you when you tried to walk the roads or trails. DEET is a must. Once Green flies are done then apparently mosquitoes start up in Aug-Sep so come prepared. No bug issues out on the water. The town of Crisfield is a couple of minutes away and has all necessary services. We camped at Janes Island State Park in a Motorhome.

Tuckahoe State Park, Queen Anne, Maryland

Date of Stay: May, 2016 - $33.00
Overall Rating:      

We come to Tuckahoe often because its close to home and a nicely maintained small campground with lots of room between sites, paved roads, and enough activities to be busy but restful. This visit happened to be a rainy weekend but between showers we managed to hike the two loops. Sites are back in and a mix of level and sloped. Use the pictures on the reservation site to look for large trees that will limit overhang off the site. Some require a bit more engineering than others to level up but most with RVs seemed to be able to accommodate the terrain. Restrooms are cleaned daily and in good condition. Power was clean. Water points are on the loop road and accessible. Dump station easily accommodated our 35 footer with toad. Rangers patrol often and were quick to enforce the basic rules like keeping tents on sites and number of vehicles parking at each site. Great kayaking creek with tons of turtles basking in the sun (if its out). Great place for young kayakers. We camped at Tuckahoe State Park in a Motorhome.

Cunningham Falls State Park, Thurmont, Maryland

Date of Stay: June, 2015 - $28.00
Overall Rating:      

Well kept state park with a large campground. Electric loop is one of the older loops and sites are not all that level. We stayed in one of the H/C sites with electric in a tenting loop because access was easier. Each loop has a host site but only one of the five hosts was present. Campground is uphill from everything at the park and plan on driving down to the lake or trail heads. Within the park hiking available or just across the road to the larger Catoctin National Park with plentiful trails and rock outcroppings to visit. Lake has a couple of nice sand beaches and the falls were running due to recent rains. Park tends to get a lot of day use at the beaches but the campground is secluded and access restricted. Restrooms were clean and serviced daily. We camp here two to three times a season. We camped at Cunningham Falls State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

When exiting don't turn right on Catoctin Hollow Road to get back to US 15 thinking its a short cut. Go left and exit back to Rt 77 through the park as you came in. Catoctin Hollow Rd gets narrow and rough and is not suitable for RVs and trailers.

Lake Anna State Park, Spotsylvania, Virginia

Date of Stay: October, 2013 - $27.00
Overall Rating:      

Nice new park with wide paved campground roads with both back in and pull through sites. Bath house was like new and in the style of newly renovated VA State Parks. Laundry facilities provided in one of the two bath houses. RV sites were large, well separated, and generally level but still needed blocking to level our RV. Some pull through sites were runoff rutted. Plan to arrive early to pick your best unoccupied site. Lots of trails to hike. Camped mid week and only two of the 23 RV sites occupied. Will definitely be back. We camped at Lake Anna State Park in a Motorhome.

Westmoreland State Park, Montross, Virginia

Date of Stay: October, 2013 - $27.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a great park. We purposefully went Sun-Tues when empty was an understatement. Of the 40 sites in Loop B we were one of two campers other than the Park host who we only saw early AM and evenings. By the second night we were the only transient camper in the Loop and Loop A only had two. Camp host lived in Loop A and visited daily, cleaning up empty sites prepping for weekend. Rangers patrolled frequently. Check in was painless and consisted of picking a site (even with reservations) and then notifying the visitor’s center where we were. Sites are close together and little ground cover and brush remains. You will get to know your neighbors if the campground starts getting full. Not too many level sites and not all will take the larger rigs so get there early on arrival day. We were in site 13 with a 32 foot MH with no problem. Some pull through sites are available, but without jacks some would be tough to level on just blocks. Water in our site did not work but plenty of empty sites around to pull water from. Bath house was clean and kept up. Loop B bath house appeared in better shape than Loop A. Loop A sites are older and not as friendly to larger rigs with similar leveling issues and a number of reversed services. Visitor Center was open, but all other park amenities other than trails were closed during the week. Park trails are well marked and good hikes. Two are bikeable and they are relatively easy. Road to beach has a steep hill/walk bikes warning and its for real. Ride back up will test a seasoned mountain biker. Few bugs this time of year. We camped at Westmoreland State Park in a Motorhome.

Tuckahoe State Park, Queen Anne, Maryland

Date of Stay: August, 2013 - $32.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a great spot to camp. We stayed mid week, Sunday through Tuesday and the park was effectively deserted. Only 6 of the 30 sites in the electric loop were occupied when we arrived and that dwindled to three before we left. Bath house appears to have been recently renovated, might be a bit crowded if all sites are full on a weekend. Sites are widely spaced and the packed gravel pad areas are relatively level. Approaches are paved. Some sites have large trees at the back of the pad which will limit overhang and RV length. Check the photos on the reservation site for trees. Rangers patrolled a few times each day. The entrance is not gated but the sites are not visible from the nearest road. Surrounding area is very rural. Camp area is heavily wooded making it cooler than adjacent field areas. Good walking trails are available. Biking along the paved roads is available but trails leading from the camp to the rest of the park would class as difficult for biking. Arboretum ($5 entry fee) is a good mile and a half walk to two mile walk. We did not go in, but from the visitor’s center it appeared to have a lot of interesting trails to explore. Lake is about a half mile by road/trail. Firewood for sale was green and took a lot to keep going. We will definitely camp here again. We camped at Tuckahoe State Park in a Motorhome.

Santee State Park, Santee, South Carolina

Date of Stay: July, 2013 - $21.00
Overall Rating:      

Nice state park convenient to I95. We stayed overnight mid-week on way north. There are two camp areas and we stayed in the Cypress View (Lakefront B) area. Camp host very friendly and helpful. We arrived after hours without a reservation and were told to just pick an open site and pay at the office in the morning. Sites are in a wooded area with no undercover so lots of shade but little privacy. Spacing is OK but the camp was not full. Site descriptions state flat, slight slope, or moderate slope and these descriptions are not accurate. There are flat sites listed as sloped and some listed as flat but have a slope and require leveling. Some pull thru sites were heavily rutted and in need of grading. Site and road surfaces are sandy clay. Our site was missing its picnic table (borrowed by an adjacent camper before our arrival) but it re-appeared overnight. Great playground for kids. Nice lake views. Bugs not noticeable. Bath house was old and worn but serviceable. We camped at Santee State Park in a Motorhome.
