Pinery Provincial Park, Grand Bend, Ontario

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

This was our third visit here, and our longest ever stay at any one campground. The Ontario Parks website is very honest about the quality and privacy values that it assigns to sites and we were not disappointed in our site. The staff, both park and campground, were great. The only negative was the lack of watr and sewer, necessitating filling the fresh water tank by jerry can every couple of days, and emptying the black and grey water with a tote every five or six days - and it's a 2.5k/1.5mi drive to the dump station while towing the tote. We will return. We camped at Pinery Provincial Park in a Travel Trailer.

Milton Heights Campground, Milton, Ontario

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

I have been staying here, on and off, for about 15 years. It is one of the closest campgrounds to Toronto, where I have many friends and family. The park has gradually become worse. It lost most of its trees to disease, and is now very open. It has also become a more seasonal park, with many of the sites occupied by people on contract work in the area using most of the better sites. The showers, while a bit dated, are clean and have good pressure. The water is from an on-site well and, while potable, has an off taste that kept us from using it, even for coffee. The store sells 1-gallon bottles of water for $4, although they are $1 at any Walmart or grocery nearby. The girls in the office, and the maintenance guy are great, and will help with anything. The owner is a little dour, though, and can be difficult to deal with. We camped at Milton Heights Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is a good campground for visiting Toronto but traffic to/from the city can be a nightmare, 24/7. If possible, drive into Milton and take the GO bus or GO train. Google GO Transit to get prices and schedules.

Port Huron KOA, Kimball, Michigan

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $62.00
Overall Rating:

This is the second time that we have stayed at this park, and we will return. It is very much a full service resort with many facilities and activities for families. As empty nesters, we don't use most of them, but we appreciate that many people do. The park is immaculate, and the seasonal sites are kept neat and tidy. The only issue we encountered were noisy neighbours in the cabins across the road with loud music all day and night. However, after two complaints to the office, they were much better. The office staff were great, and let me use the office for some amazon deliveries. We camped at Port Huron KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Cove Oceanfront Campground, Parker's Cove, Nova Scotia

Date of Stay: May, 2015 - $62.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed here over the May long weekend, and the park was very quiet, only four units total. This was good because the sites are very close together and, if the park was full, there would have been barely room to extend the awning. At their prices, there should be more space

We paid for a waterside site, which was discounted for May. The views were spectacular, and the sound of the sea was relaxing. The staff were friendly and helpful, and kept the grounds clean. All the sites are grass, which drained well even in heavy rain. Nice.

Overall, a nice park close to beautiful Annapolis Royal. We would stay here again. We camped at Cove Oceanfront Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Cornwall / Charlottetown KOA, Cornwall, Prince Edward Island

Date of Stay: September, 2014 - $41.00
Overall Rating:

We really enjoyed this park. We selected one of the waterfront, extra wide sites. The view of the tidal river was lovely. The grounds are expansive and well maintained. Seasonal campers are in a separate area, so that the premium spots are reserved for travellers. The park was very quiet, with less than 10 units on the grounds on any night. That said, the sites are well laid out and, even on a busy night, there is good space between units. The owners enforce strict rules on the condition of the seasonal, so that area is also nice. The staff were excellent and helpful with any requests. The only negatives were the very dated, but very clean, showers and washrooms, and no escort to the site was offered. We had no problems finding ours, but we did witness others driving around looking for their spots, then entering the wrong way. The price reflects the KOA discount and shoulder season. We will stay here again. We camped at Cornwall / Charlottetown KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Coy Lake Campground , Upper Queensbury, New Brunswick

Date of Stay: September, 2014 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed here for one night as we were traveling through NB. This park caters primarily to seasonal users, who keep trailers here for use on the weekends. There are probably 10 or so sites for nightly users. Everyone seems to know one another, creating a very clubby atmosphere among the users. Then down side is that this creates to a communal mentality, so people wander and drive wherever they wish, including through our site! That said, the park was clean and well maintained, and the lady at the desk was very helpful when we stopped in with no reservation. She told us to just pick from a list of four or five open sites. The sites are very close together, and opening an awning in some of them would be a challenge. I was surprised to find that the showers were coin operated (25 cents for four minutes). Overall, a clean and reasonably quiet campground, close to the Trans Canada highway. I would stop here for a night if I needed a rest in the area, but it wouldn't be a destination campground. We camped at Coy Lake Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Stonehurst Golf Course & Trailer Park, Moncton, New Brunswick

Date of Stay: September, 2014 - $31.00
Overall Rating:

We arrived with no reservations on a Friday in September and had no problems getting a site. The lady at the desk was friendly and helpful. The sites are grassy and reasonable level, and large enough to easily back in my 31' RV then stay hooked up for the night. The sites were very wide,;although, there were no trees or any privacy between sites. The park was extremely well maintained, with immaculate grass throughout. The showers and washrooms were dated but very clean. However, they are not heated, which caused me to fore go my morning shower, since it was 3C/37F. There was no cable, and two stations available by antenna. The price reflects shoulder season. We camped at Stonehurst Golf Course & Trailer Park in a Travel Trailer.

Hartt Island RV Resort, Fredericton, New Brunswick

Date of Stay: July, 2014 - $68.00
Overall Rating:

This is an example of a park that is so close to a higher rating, but misses the details. We had no problems getting a full hookup site without a reservation. The sites are decent, with long and level pull through. However, there is no privacy between sites, just a grassy strip with a picnic table. There are two saplings on each site, so in 10 to 15 years there will be some shade trees and a bit of privacy. There are numerous waterfront sites, but they are reserved for seasonal only. It would be nice if some of them could be used by vacationers, even if a minimum stay was required. Each site has a nice steel garbage can, but ours was full when we arrived. And at this price, I expect cable TV. There is a lovely pool, but it costs 10 dollars, plus tax, to use. For the price of the night, I expect to be able to take a nice, cooling dip after a hot drive. The park is next to a secondary highway, so there is some traffic noise. We found it on par with many of the parks along the interstates. It wasn't enough to keep us from sleeping, even with the windows and a vent open. However, tolerance to noise is an individual thing. In short, 68 dollars is a lot for an overnight site, the park doesn't provide enough resort services for the money to justify a longer stay. We camped at Hartt Island RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Pumpkin Patch RV Resort, Hermon, Maine

Date of Stay: July, 2014 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

Normally I would give a park with this level of facilities an 8, but the attitude and attention to detail make it a 9. We arrived with no reservation, but the staff were quick to help us find a site that met our needs. We elected water/electric over full service since it was just for one night and the site was a bit more private. The gravel pad was so level that, even hooked up, the trailer was level in both directions. The site was spacious and well groomed, though the whole park lacks in trees. Good power, good water, great cable. The entire park is immaculate. The grounds are lovely, and they take great pride in their bathrooms and showers (which I use, in the interest of marital bliss). Even the sewage dump is clean, with soap and paper towels to wash up afterwards. There is a small family diner next door, with decent down home food, and a discount for campers. If they added more shade trees, and installed a pool, this would be a 10! We will definitely return next time that we are in the Bangor area. We camped at Pumpkin Patch RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Beaver Pines Campground, Woodstock, Connecticut

Date of Stay: July, 2014 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed here for one night while traveling I-95. The staff were very helpful and friendly and had no problems accommodating us without a reservation. The park caters mostly to seasonal campers, who occupy about 3/4 of the sites. Most of the sites were well treed, and the park was very quiet and dark, making for a great sleep. The downside of the wooded sites were some very tricky corners, and backing in my 34' RV was a challenge. Once in, the site was big enough to stay hooked up for the night. Nice. Why a 7? Some, but not all, of the units in the seasonal sites are in disrepair, which always detracts for us. No sewer is available, and there is a fee to use the dump unless you stay two nights. Water is available, but only through a garden hose sized connection. The WiFi isn't provided by the park, it is provided by a few kind seasonal campers who open their network to others. It worked well, but seemed a bit weird, as this seems to be the camp's chosen method to provide WiFi. Finally, our site was busy with mosquitoes and deer flies, but that's nature. We camped at Beaver Pines Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Tall Pines, Elmer, New Jersey

Date of Stay: July, 2014 - $65.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed here travelling north from Virginia to Maine. RV parks are scarce along the route, especially after reading some of the reviews here. So we didn't mind a 20 minute detour off of the interstate to find a nice park. We were not disappointed. This is a resort park, with lots of activities and facilities, and is reflected in the price. We were looking for something private and quiet for our night, and the staff readily accommodated us by placing us in a site far from the pools and playgrounds. The site was large and quiet. The seasonal units were all well taken care of and neat. The only detractions were no WiFi, and the water connection was at the front of the site, so I had to be careful to position my unit but still needed 50' of water hose forward and 20' of sewer hose back. Word of warning: the rural drive to the park is not well signed and the county won't let the park put any up. The GPS was invaluable. We would return. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Tall Pines in a Travel Trailer.

Little Creek MWR RV Park (Military FamCamp) , Norfolk, Virginia

Date of Stay: July, 2014 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed here during our pack and load out, since it was the closest park to our home. It was clean and well-cared for. Some of the sites, including ours, were too close for privacy. In addition, water is shared between two sites, necessitating the one on the right (us) having to run 50' of water hose under the unit to a pedestal almost under the awning. Finally, some of the full time and seasonal residents have let their units deteriorate or have surrounded them with tarps, tents, etc. This is always a detractor for us. We would stay here again if we had to be in the area, but likely not for vacation. We camped at Little Creek MWR RV Park (Military FamCamp) in a Travel Trailer.

Date of Stay: March, 2014 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed here one night each way while traveling I-95 to and from Florida. It is an excellent highway stop, easy access from 95, and large, level sites that let us stay hooked up for the night. The staff are excellent, as are the facilities. I wouldn't plan a week-long vacation here, but I don't think that's the target audience. We will stay again.

West Palm Beach / Lion Country Safari KOA, Loxahatchee, Florida

Date of Stay: January, 2014 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

This was our second stay here. Most of the sites are great; large and wide. There are a few that are tight together, but we managed to avoid those. The pool is much larger than normal, and I even manage to swim lengths in it. It is very quiet at night, and you can hear the lions from the Safari Park next door. The park is very well a managed, and the staff work hard to help out with any requests. The only negative comment is that the park is very focussed on seasonal campers, so getting a specific site during the winter vacation can be hard, even when reserving well in advance. We camped at West Palm Beach / Lion Country Safari KOA in a Travel Trailer.
