Minneapolis Northwest KOA, Rogers, Minnesota

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $41.00
Overall Rating:      

We came to area to visit grandkids for three weeks. There are very limited options since it is near the twin cities. The park is old with shared water and electric pedestals. Our water and electric were right by the door with sewer on the other side. Sites are decent sized. Roads are gravel. Pool is small and worn. There is a small dog park, a mini putt and a playground. The pros are location, location, location. It's located on a highway although road notice isn't bad. The owners and staff are very nice and helpful and even though it's an old park, it's very clean. Short drive to Minneapolis, St Paul, etc. So while it seems overpriced, it's a nice enough campground. We camped at Minneapolis Northwest KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Hartwick Highlands Campground, Cooperstown, New York

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $49.00

Beautiful wooded campground by Cooperstown. Site was level and mostly gravel. Heavily wooded site and some steep hills and narrow roads. We had no trouble getting in and out but you must go slow and be cautious. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Will stay here again We camped at Hartwick Highlands Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Hidden Valley Camping Area, Jamestown, New York

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

We stayed for a week and then extended a day due to weather. Owners are on site and lovely people. It is a campground with grass sites, and gravel roads. Sites are big with table, fire ring, electric and grey water hookups. No black tank hookups but they will pump you out whenever you want and there are several dump stations. We paid for full service and pumpout and a morning paper was also delivered to our door in morning. Large pool, tennis court, basketball, jump pad and playground for kids. Lots of seasonals who are very friendly. Very quiet at night. We would love to come back. We camped at Hidden Valley Camping Area in a Fifth Wheel.

Nahkeeta Campsite, Martinsburg, West Virginia

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

This was a one night stay for us. It's really a hayfield with undefined sites in two loops. There are no showers or buildings of kind except for a half finished cinder block barn with no roof full of junk. The office is an old Air Stream and the owners and members of their family live on site in older campers. It is next to 4 lane highway and an airport so there is quite a bit of noise. Lots of permanent residents with lots of junk. Was a bit scary at first glance but people were very nice. The good part is the utilities are in good repair and the site was level and a pull through. It is close to several towns and a nice bike path. Owner is nice but difficult to get ahold of. Just left a message and she called back. Other members of family were nice too. This is a good place for a overnight. We will stay again. We camped at Nahkeeta Campsite in a Fifth Wheel.

Midway Campground Resort (formerly Statesville East I-40 Winston-Salem, Statesville, North Carolina

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

We stayed one night on our way north. Campground is built in a very hilly area so roads wind up and down. Sites are gravel and some have patios. Has a huge pool and deck area and mini putt. Office staff is very friendly and extremely helpful. Even delivered a takeout menue right to our site since it was raining. Campground is old and a bit rundown but we'll be back.

Camp Lake Jasper RV Resort, Hardeeville, South Carolina

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $22.00
Overall Rating:      

Our rate is based on a monthly rate. We stayed for two months. Very nice campground located about 20 minutes from Savanna, Hilton Head, Beaufort and Bluffton. Price is good for area. Publix, Kroeger, and Walmart not far away. Sites are dirt and grass with cement patio. Pretty roomy for area. Electric, cable and spotty wifi included in rate. Workampers were helpful and friendly. No obvious management on site but no issues while we were there either. Work campers really cared for property. Seemed to be about 30% long term residents but all sites but one was neat. Beautiful park next door and lake front dock by pool. We're coming back another year. Make reservations as they get booked up fast. We camped at Camp Lake Jasper RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Pellicer Creek Campground, St Augustine, Florida

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $14.00
Overall Rating:      

Our rate is based on a monthly stay. This is a very small rustic campground. There is no showerhouse or bathrooms. It is within a short drive to St Augustine and several other must see towns. The camp hosts are very sweet and helpful. They are always in the office or campground and are willing to help you with any problem. Our site was decent size with crushed asphalt and full hookup. There is a scrap yard next door and its right on hwy 1. We only occasionally heard noice from scrap yard and road noice was not terrible. Lots of trees, foliage and a beautiful area by creek with dock and swing. The few permanent residents were very friendly. We liked it very much. We camped at Pellicer Creek Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $35.00

Rustic camping experience with wonderful views, walking paths, and quiet. Grass sites that are good sized. Owners restrict size of mats to protect grass. We just folded ours in half. No sweat. Hookups are old school with two sites sharing central pedestal. Cable is free. Owners are on site and very nice. We'll be back.

Pulled in for a one night stay to find our reservation lost. Was assigned a small back in with water and electric only. Office staff friendly. Overpowering smell of nearby farm and lots of road noise. Dump station inconvenient and the one bathroom we used was filthy. Won't be back. We camped at Apple Creek Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Spent 1 week here on our way north for summer. Lovely area in Mammoth Cave Park. Golf course is pretty good and extremely affordable. Staff in campground was extremely friendly and helpful. Not much in area for restaurants unless you're looking for chain or fast food. Grocery store about 25 miles away. Lots of hiking and cave tours both at Diamond Caverns and Mammoth Caves. Lots of small towns to explore. There is a Amish community presence here. We will definitely be back. We camped at Diamond Caverns RV Resort and Golf in a Fifth Wheel.

Hill Shade RV Park, Gonzales, Texas

Date of Stay: January, 2016 - $12.00
Overall Rating:      

We were flooded out of another campground and ended up at this one. Owners very nice and responded to problems quickly. Very old park that has never been updated. Half permanent residents and half electrical workers. Bathrooms and laundry and landscaping needed cleaning. Many many loose dogs roaming around area. We were unable to walk our dog without a can of pepper spray and walking stick. Our rate reflected monthly rate. The residents were very friendly though and it was cheap. WiFi was good. We probably wouldn't return. We camped at Hill Shade RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Dutch Treat Camping & Recreation, Zeeland, Michigan

Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $36.00
Overall Rating:      

Seems pretty expensive for the price. The lower rating reflects the bag of garbage I had to clean out of the half full firepit and the not very friendly young woman who checked me in barefoot. Our site was pretty clean otherwise and the park was clean enough except for a few annual sites that looked like a garage sale in a dump. It it well located in a poplar area.

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $1.00
Overall Rating:      

Spent summer here work camping with no prior experience with area. Beautiful park with spacious sites and lots of mature pine trees. Facilities are spotless. Pool is heated to 80 or 83 degrees. No mosquitoes and usually a breeze blowing so no air conditioning most of the time. Ice and wood delivered to site. Pickle ball courts and other activities available. Strict rules are enforced so the park is quiet and there is no speeding. Wonderful! Owner goes all out for major holiday with firewords and cookouts. Close to all tourist destinations. Will definitely put this park on regular rotation whether we work here or not. We camped at Whispering Pines RV Resort and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Absolutely beautiful area with lots to do in park. Beaches are lovely and some are quite secluded. Lots of birds and wildlife. Blue Angels practice over Fort. Wonderful! This is not a resort so don't expect perfect. Its old with narrow roads, older bathhouses and sand every where. The staff was friendly and the facilities were pretty clean considering usage. Its a great value. We had to park our truck in overflow due to shorter site. Thats okay. We'll be back! We camped at Fort Pickens Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
