Flory's Cottages & Camping, Ronks, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

Nice park smack dab in the middle of Lancaster County. Very convenient location to Bird in Hand and Intercourse. Lots of restaurants close by. Owners were very helpful and were able to get us into a site on July 4th holiday weekend while we were traveling. We stayed on a buddy site which is like two-sites for the price of one. Plenty of room for motorhome, Jeep, and parking. We camped at Flory's Cottages & Camping in a Motorhome.

Philadelphia South KOA (formerly Timberlane Campground), Clarksboro, New Jersey

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $59.00
Overall Rating:      

This was a nice park. It's just recently converted to a KOA and there's work being done. We had a really nice shaded pull-thru site right at the front of the park. It was easy to access, level and the utilities worked well. They have a wonderful fenced grassy dog park that our dogs loved and was ver convenient. Convenient location to Philly also, maybe a 25 minute drive with traffic. It's in a quiet location so there's not any road noise to speak of. We camped at Philadelphia South KOA (formerly Timberlane Campground) in a Motorhome.

Sea-Vu West Premier RV Resort, Wells, Maine

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $56.00
Overall Rating:      

Sites are big grassy sites, which sounds strange but was really nice. You are basically backed up to another unit. Utilities were an easy reach and the park is really clean. Nice pool and clubhouse. It really is a resort as there are permanent sites on one side of the campground. They have a fenced wooded pet run but it is on the permanent side and there's not parking (it's quite a walk). Wifi was pretty much useless. We camped at Sea-Vu West Premier RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Liberty Harbor RV Park, Jersey City, New Jersey

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $95.00
Overall Rating:      

This park is what it is. It's the closest place to park your RV and visit Manhattan. That's it. It's a large gravel parking lot with RVs angled in side-by-side. You have to back in and the tail end of your RV will be facing the side of another RV. The utilities worked fine, but the dump station is horrid. We did not dump before we left, we just waited till the next stop. Pets are allowed but there is NOWHERE to walk your dog. We had to walk ours back into a boat storage yard where we found a few patches of grass. All that said, this is our 4th stay here. It's just the only place there is. It is safe, as they have a security guard that walks the lot at all hours. Public transportation is nearby and there are a TON of restaurants within a mile or so, even within walking distance. The PATH is about 5 blocks down and there is a train that runs right next to the park. It HAS actually gotten a lot better as they are building some high-dollar condos all around the campground. We camped at Liberty Harbor RV Park in a Motorhome.

Beach Rose RV Park, Salisbury, Massachusetts

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $45.00
Overall Rating:      

Campground is only a few miles from the beach and convenient Salem and Boston. It's a bit of a drive but while there we visited Salem, Boston and the beach. Sites are close together but it's a clean park. Good utilities and ease of hookup. Pad was concrete and dead level. Park is gated and you have to have a key to enter, so it felt secure. Wifi was just ok (as usual for RV parks). They have two dog areas, one a small fenced area and another large wooded fenced area. Our dogs LOVED it. We camped at Beach Rose RV Park in a Motorhome.

Greenwood Lodge and Campsites, Bennington, Vermont

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a really nice little park. It's a few miles outside of Bennington and it's best to enter through the ski area that's beside the campground. Sites are scattered about and there's a bit of distance between you and your neighbor. Nice babbling brooks was right outside our front door and there are several ponds and walking trails. The owner is super nice and lives onsite. He was very helpful. No sewer sites that I am aware of but there is an easy to access dump station. We really enjoyed our stay. We camped at Greenwood Lodge and Campsites in a Motorhome.

Cinderella Motel & Campsite, Grand Island, New York

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $50.00
Overall Rating:      

Nice little campground within a few miles of Niagara Falls. Much better price than the KOA down the road. Sites are back-in sites in a semi-circle configuration. They are rather close together but the hookups are easy to get to and everything worked well. We camped at Cinderella Motel & Campsite in a Motorhome.

Whispering Hills RV Park, Georgetown, Kentucky

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a very crowded park. Sites are very close together and there is no where to park you tow vehicle or your toad if you have a motorhome. The site(s) we stayed on where just barely big enough for our 40 foot motorhome and the front end was right on the street. Parking is difficult due to the amount of tow vehicles parked on the sides of the road (both sides). Also, our site was so soft our jacks in the rear sunk down 12" in the gravel. Boards were not much help.

When you arrive, there is a gentlemen that insists on "parking" you. I don't really want someone showing me where and how to park my rig, so I just had to ignore him which he didn't like. I know my rig, where it needs to be on the site, etc., and really don't like someone telling me I'm back too far, or I need to get closer to the utilities etc., when they don't realize I have to be able to open my basement doors.

Overall, it's a decent campground, but there are others so much better so we most likely won't be back. It's just way to crowded and close together for my tastes. We camped at Whispering Hills RV Park in a Motorhome.

Destiny Parks and Pavillion (Military FamCamp), Fort Campbell, Kentucky

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

This campground is a hidden gem. Our son-in-law is stationed at Fort Campbell and there aren't many campgrounds close by. We found this one and glad we did. It's right outside gate 10. With the right GPS directions, it's not hard to find. There are two levels to the campground, and upper level probably best suited to smaller rigs (although I did see a few Class As there) and a lower level which is all pull-through sites. We stayed on the lower level. Sites are paved, pull-through and many have shade. It's on the banks of a creek. There is a skeet shooting range nearby, but it was barely noticeable and obviously only operates during the day. The only thing that concerned me was the wooden bridge you have to cross to get to the campground. It's rated 9 tons, although I saw many big rigs in the campground that I know weigh over 9 tons (mine included). Hopefully, that sign is not correct, but just in case I drove over it really fast. We camped at Destiny Parks and Pavillion (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.

New Frontier RV Park, Winnemucca, Nevada

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $34.00
Overall Rating:      

Super nice campground. It's new, so the trees are rather small, but the sites are nice and level with great amenities. It has a dog run, but it's all gravel (couldn't understand that, dogs need grass). Also, utility connection is at the far end of the site, so my sewer hose would not reach. That was sort of a bad design. We camped at New Frontier RV Park in a Motorhome.

Oasis Las Vegas RV Resort, Las Vegas, Nevada

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $48.00
Overall Rating:      

Great RV resort. So close to the Vegas strip (it's right at the south end). Nice level sites, super clean. The dog park leaves a LOT to be desired in my mind. Dogs need grass, not gravel (they're not cats). Dogs are not allowed to be on the grass, but by the time you walk them the distance to the dog area, they've already done their business. I guess I should have raised them better. We camped at Oasis Las Vegas RV Resort in a Motorhome.

San Francisco RV Resort, Pacifica, California

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $100.00
Overall Rating:      

As far as I'm concerned, if you're visiting San Francisco this is where you want to be. It's right on the ocean, you can't get much closer than that. It basically is just a big parking lot, but there's the OCEAN! It is reasonably convenient to the city and we just drove in from the campground each day. No issues. We camped at San Francisco RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Yosemite Lakes RV Resort - Thousand Trails, Groveland, California

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

Close to Yosemite, but yee haw the road leading up to the campground gave me some white knuckles. I guess if you're going to Yosemite, that's what you have to do. Campground is a Thousand Trails campground. It's large and very dusty. Sites can be somewhat tight to get into, but it's in the forest so what would you expect. Again, lots of dust.

Grand Sierra Resort RV Park, Reno, Nevada

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

It was obvious that at one point this was a KOA park as there are still KOA signs on some of the electrical boxes. Basically, this is a big parking lot. The sites were level and the utilities were fine. They do have a shuttle service that takes you to the casino. The buffet was great! Note, your GPS may not be able to locate the entrance to this campground. Ours told us arriving at destination on the right when in fact it was on the left and we had already passed it. Lots of traffic in the area and turning around is nearly impossible. It's not well marked and even once you enter the property, indecision sets in because there are so many different directions you can turn. We camped at Grand Sierra Resort RV Park in a Motorhome.
