Hornsby Hollow, Ten Mile, Tennessee

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

Wow! This is a fabulous gem of a campground. Located on a peninsula into lovely Watts Bar Lake, most of the campsites are right on the water. We were able to launch our kayaks from our campsite. The view was incredible. We had delicate pink sunrises reflecting on the water each morning. There are two shallow swimming areas, though when we got really hot we took a dip off of our site as well. We stayed here under the totality of the Great American Eclipse. The staff couldn't have been nicer, they organized things so that the campground was not overrun with visitors, but so that we could have extra guests in our site if we wanted. The campsites provide electricity and water. For a small fee someone comes to dump and backwash your tanks. Verizon coverage is ifey. There are internet spots at the office porch and multipurpose/laundry room. There is 1 washer and dryer. We stayed for 4 nights, and wished we had planned our trip so that we could have stayed longer. We are already planning a return trip. This is a special place to relax, unwind and unplug. We camped at Hornsby Hollow in a Motorhome.

Natural Bridge / Lexington KOA, Natural Bridge, Virginia

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

We stopped here for the night, and had a nice level campsite with good utilities. The campground is hilly, and I can see where other reviewers had unlevel sites. Ours was fine. We had been here in the winter of 2016, remembered the entrance, but didn't recognize our campsite (we usually take long walks exploring the campgrounds). Turns out we were in an area that used to be for overflow, that has now been converted to permanent sites. Access to 81 is VERY close, there is a gas station at the same spot. We camped at Natural Bridge / Lexington KOA in a Motorhome.

American Heritage RV Park, Williamsburg, Virginia

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $65.00
Overall Rating:      

This park is very convenient to Colonial Williamsburg and nearby attractions. It is also convenient to I-64. The front section of the campground is very shady. The back section has less shade. Most sites have a concrete pad and a concrete parking space for 1 car. Some sites have permanent fire rings, and a few have fireplaces with chimneys. Ours did not, so, on request, they delivered a fire ring and our wood to our site. The ring gave off a chemical smoke, so I'd suggest you get one of the sites with a built in ring if you are planning to have a fire. The campground was about 2/3 full, mid-week in the end of July. The pool was very nice and refreshing after days of touristing in the Virginia summer heat. Our site was level, all of the utilities were convenient and worked well. Wi-fi was strong. The staff was exceptionally nice and helpful. We really liked staying here and will definitely return. We camped at American Heritage RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Colonial Williamsburg has a "Dig" for kids where they work with real archeologists to dig the colonial items out of the foundation of a building. After about 20 minutes of digging, they analyze the glass, shells, nails, pottery etc that they find. Very fun. Plan 60 minutes for the activity. Sign up in advance. No additional fee beyond the CW ticket.

Pecan Grove RV Park, Austin, Texas

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

Within minutes of pulling in, we were invited by a neighbor to a cook out. That is how friendly folks are in the older, quirky campground. Campers reserve months in advance for the few spots open to short term visitors, but we lucked into a gap of a few days when one site was open. Don't expect an RV resort. This is a crowded, older, delightful campground right in the thick of where the action is. They only take cash or checks. We camped at Pecan Grove RV Park in a Motorhome.

The campground is located seconds from bars, restaurants and free music, a gorgeous path around the lake (complete with dog park), and a block from a bridge that takes you over the lake into the city. It is a longish (but doable) walk to Whole Foods and Trader Joes.

Fort Chiswell RV Park, Max Meadows, Virginia

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed here in March and again in June. It is a convenient pull off from I-81 as you are heading down the road. It is close to the highway but protected from road noise. The campsites are level and the utilities are convenient and work well. The campground is surrounded by grazing fields, with cattle on one side and sheep on the other. Yet, it doesn't smell like animals. There is a creek running through it and a small pond. The swimming pool looked inviting, and there were plenty of kids playing in it in June. We saw many goldfinches flying around. We camped at Fort Chiswell RV Park in a Motorhome.

Doughton Park, Laurel Springs, North Carolina

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $10.00
Overall Rating:      

If you are willing to boondock, the NPS campground on the Blue Ridge Parkway is a good bet for you. The campground has a few "reserve ahead" sites and a few first come, first served sites. We were there at the start of the long July 4 weekend, and did not have a problem finding a site. About half of the sites were in use. Our site was mostly level, and easy to back into. The camp host was very helpful. There is a 1 mile (each way) hike from the campground through woods and meadows to the Beringer Cabin. There is a much shorter (though less interesting) drive to the cabin. We camped at Doughton Park in a Motorhome.

Crabtree Falls Campground , Little Switzerland, North Carolina

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $10.00
Overall Rating:      

If you are willing to boondock, this campground is fabulous. It is right on the Blue Ridge Parkway and part of the NPS. We were there in late June, and shared it with only 4 other RVs. Our site was very level and paved. Some of the sites are "parallel parking" sites which seem a bit narrow, though we saw an A-liner in one with no problems at all. The campground is convenient to wonderful hiking. It is in the woods, we met a deer grazing next to our unit during our morning dog walk. There is a separate tent camping area which seemed to have a few more campers in it. We never actually saw the camp host, though we saw his unit. It is a quiet, lovely, convenient place. The fee indicated here reflects the 50% senior citizen discount. We camped at Crabtree Falls Campground in a Motorhome.

Moonshine Creek Campground, Balsam, North Carolina

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

Wow, we really enjoyed this lovely little campground. The campsites are on both sides of a babbling creek. There are a few places set up to put your feet in the creek, or let your dog go wading. They don't want people breaking down the banks of the creek, so they supply access points for you. The bathrooms are incredible, tiled, modern and clean. There is a sofa in the laundry area. We got to select our site from the 3 available for our size unit. Our campsite was reasonably level and the utilities were convenient and worked well. The camp host helped us back in. We really loved this campground, and if we hadn't been driving the Blue Ridge Parkway from end to end, we might have chosen to dally here a while. It is just a bit off the BRP. Call and ask for directions to get there, the route is a bit windy. We camped at Moonshine Creek Campground in a Motorhome.

Chantilly Farm, Floyd, Virginia

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $29.00
Overall Rating:      

Chantilly Farm is a huge outdoor concert venue with a small campground attached. We stayed here for the night as we pulled off the (very nearby) Blue Ridge Parkway. Our campsite was next to a wifi access point, so the wifi was very, very fast. The campsite was level and the utilities were convenient and worked well. There was no one camped near us, had there been it would have felt crowded. There is no shade. Another post mentioned the views, they are quite lovely. We arrived after office hours, and initially could not find our site (we overlooked an obvious directional sign). The campground has two sections, and we were looking in the wrong section. As we wandered around, the camp host found us and got us to the right spot. We camped at Chantilly Farm in a Motorhome.

Montebello Camping & Fishing Resort, Montebello, Virginia

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $44.00
Overall Rating:      

We came here as an overnight stop off of the Blue Ridge Parkway. The drive down from the Parkway is steep and windy. You check into the campground at the general store across the street from the campground. When you call ahead, they tell you to pull into the campground driveway, and then walk across the street to check in. The campground is very shady with narrow gravel roads. It was fine for our 30 foot Class A. Our campsite was pull through and sort of elevated along side one of the roads. It was mostly level (we are in the mountains after all) and the utilities were convenient. The camp host came to greet us and was always tooling around the campground in his golf cart taking care of things. Though we stayed for just one night, we found it a relaxing and pretty place to stay. There are two fishing ponds, though we did not try the fishing. We camped at Montebello Camping & Fishing Resort in a Motorhome.

Sallisaw / Fort Smith West KOA, Sallisaw, Oklahoma

Overall Rating:      

This little KOA campground is a short drive outside of Fort Smith AR. The owners are super involved, and very interested in your stay. The WiFi is one of the strongest that we have encountered anywhere. Our site was level, and the campground roads were easy to navigate. We camped at Sallisaw / Fort Smith West KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Fort Smith National Historic Site is really, really interesting and well done. Also, visit the Heavener Runestone in nearby Heavener OK. Purported to be carved with Viking runes left by Viking explorers in 600 AD the huge stone is also considered by some to be a hoax. Either way, the view from the park (on top of a mountain) is spectacular, and the hike to the stone is very pretty.

IB Magee Beach Park, Port Aransas, Texas

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a fun, quirky municipal park right on the beach. There is nothing fancy about it. The roads are in disrepair and pot holed. The laundry has just a few washers and dryers. The office building was getting a face lift while we were there. The campsites are oddly shaped. That said, it is on a lovely beach. You can camp on the beach if you are adventuresome, though we saw the tides come right up to the tires on some units. Some of the loyal campers we talked to have returned every year for years. If you want an RV resort, don't stay here. If you want a spot on the beach just minutes from downtown Port A, this is the spot for you. We camped at IB Magee Beach Park in a Motorhome.

Quintana Beach County Park, Quintana, Texas

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

This is a pretty municipal park at the end of a tiny one-road town. To the east are dunes and the lovely Gulf of Mexico and to the west is an enormous LNG plant that dominates the horizon. It is unsettling to see this kind of industrialization from your window. However, you get used to it. The beach is advertised as "natural", which means that they don't clean up the seaweed that washes up. That doesn't bother us. There is a jetty and a harbor channel that huge tanker ships use to take raw materials to the plant. It was fun watching the ships come and go. We did not experience any problem with the mosquitoes (it was windy while we were there), but the staff make jokes and have t-shirts about it. The office has resident cats that were covered with fleas. The staff didn't seem to concerned about that. The grackles were "nesting" while we were there, so they were calling, clucking and shrieking while tap dancing on our roof. We thought that was pretty fun stuff. Our campsite was level and the utilities were easy to use. We camped at Quintana Beach County Park in a Motorhome.

South Padre Island KOA, South Padre Island, Texas

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

There are two campgrounds right next to each other in South Padre Island - the KOA on Laguna Madre and the municipal campground on the Gulf of Mexico. We had been advised to go to the KOA, and we were glad we did. It was clean and well-run. The campsites are gravel, but have paved patios. We had a lovely view of the Laguna though we weren't in a water front site. There is a free public bus that picks you up in front of the campground and takes you all through South Padre Island, as far north as the bird sanctuary. Can't beat that - no parking! The Pier 19 Restaurant on site has pretty good food and outstanding views of the Laguna. The office complex is housed in old water cisterns. We used the fitness center that was on the second floor of the "Commons". There is a RV cleaning service that comes and washes your RV. We had been on the road for awhile, so used this service to wash off the road grime. One negative: to get to one of the dog walks, some campers cut through the playground, and the dogs "used" the sand in the playground before they got to the dog walk. Not so clean for children playing there. We camped at South Padre Island KOA in a Motorhome.

Durant / Choctaw Casino KOA, Durant, Oklahoma

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

This campground is so manicured that it feels almost sterile. It is an open field with paved campsites, and carefully trimmed and edged grass. The office complex is beautiful inside and out. It is right next to a casino with a shuttle to the casino. There is lots of open area for walking or playing frisbee with the dog. We stopped here for the night and were glad for the rest. It is in a lovely section of Oklahoma. We camped at Durant / Choctaw Casino KOA in a Motorhome.
