Our first trip to Oak Creek, and staying on the N side of the Lancaster area. Upon arrival we were meet by a greeter at the entrance of the park and was qucikly escorted to our site and aided in backing in to the site. Site was located on the creek and was very nice with a great view. Enjoyed the proximity to the playground and the fishing pond to keep an eye on our children. Paved site was a bit off level but manageable. Tree covered spot blocked our satellite however the cable had many channels. Verizon cell service was marginal at best. Campground store had a lot of good stuff and also had a great selection of campground t-shirts including larger sizes. I would recommend Oak Creek.

Kicked off the 2016 Camping Season for us over Easter weekend staying at Otter Lake for the first time. We stayed in site LF10 which was conveniently located near the front of the campground; just off the main road. Site was adequate width with a near level gravel base. Site had great access to the lake and would be great for fishing. Tree branches did block any satellite signals; however with the campground cable we were able to receive over 70 channels. Hookups were mid site and very convenient. Verizon Wireless signal was not excellent but manageable. Campground had a few activities that the kids enjoyed for the weekend, such as indoor pool (which is a decent walk from the this site, but was worth it) firetruck rides, and Easter related events as well. We will definitely make a return trip to Otter Lake in the future!

Second time staying at Hershey Campground, this time was during the Thanksgiving weekend. Campground was at about 1/2 capacity on Thanksgiving. Shuttle service to park was excellent as usual. (Would have been nice to have Shuttle Service to Chocolate World during the morning but due to Hershey Park being closed that was not an option) Hershey Park was decorated for Christmas and about a third of the rides were open, and the cost of admission to park was minimal and a great bargain.

Stayed with a large group of other campers and while Beachcomber doesn't guarantee sites, they did a decent job of keeping us all close together. This was our first time camping at Beachcomber and while the drive lanes are tight we were able to get everyone in their sites without issue. We stayed during Halloween festivities, which lead the campground to be mobbed. Had no issues with noise or issues with other campers. The trick or treat and haunted hayrides were both enjoyable for all of us. Re-booked for Halloween 2016 as we had such a good time.

First time for us staying at this campground; our site was conveniently located near the main building and hall.

We stayed in a pull thru site F1 full hook up, site was nice and level. Staff escorted to our site, and made sure to show locations of hookups. Was unable to use outdoor rug, for fear of trip hazard due to large roots from tree on the site. Campground was VERY clean, and staff were extremely friendly! I would recommend this campground to anyone looking to stay in the Skowhegan/Canaan area.

Had the great fortune to stay at this gorgeous campground in an ocean view site #376. While the site was tight to get into initially it was well worth it, as we had out own secluded site with a pathway to the bay. The sunset views were absolutely amazing! No sewer hookups are available along the waterline. Words can not express how happy we were with this campsite. Next time we return to Bar Harbor we will definitely be back to KOA Oceanside!

We has a pull-through site in Carousel Circle (CC206); it was along the front row. Upon arrival we parked in the10 minute registration area and had to make a hard right hand turn to head towards Carousel Circle. This was complicated due to the fact I had a 35' travel trailer in tow and numerous vehicles parked in the adjacent parking area. Once we found our site the opening to it was extremely tight due to the hookups being so close together and the road being so narrow you could not swing the RV enough to make the turn. I ended up needing 3 spotters to watch to make sure I didn't hit anything. Luckily our site neighbors where very gracious and moved their rug and picnic table so we could drive into our site. Once we where set up there was no room to park my tow vehicle on the campsite and had to park in the grassy area down the road. OK, so that concludes the negativity! We had an amazing time at Hershey Park & Chocolate World, and didn't really get to enjoy much of the campground. But from what we saw there was plenty of activities at the campground. As Disney-aholics we are used to waiting a long time for transportation; this was not the case at Hershey! The shuttle service to and from the park was amazing. We never waited more then 5-10 minutes. Campground had great discounted tickets for Hershey Park and the 3 hour preview the night before and the Sweet Start option were awesome! While this was our first trip to Hershey Campground it definitely will not be our last, we will just try to pick a better site for our RV.

Arrived during a monsoon rain storm, lots of flooding. However, the staff was more then accommodating during our arrival. Checked in and had no issue parking on our assigned site. As anyone who has stayed at Chincoteague knows it can be buggy, but right after a rain storm they swarmed so setup was done as quickly as possible. There is a good amount of seasonal sites on the property. The store had a lot of typical camping stuff, was disappointed that there was no campground specific merchandise (shirts, coozies, etc). We like to collect things from the various campgrounds we visit. Location could not be better on the island as it close to all of the local attractions. Was very cool to see the Assateague Lighthouse light scanning the night sky from your campsite. Would visit Maddox Campground again in the future.

Excellent campground! Stayed in site 312 which was very easy to back in and all of the hookups where very accessible. Our friends camped in the surrounding sites and cabins. Numerous amenities for the kids to do, even with the water park closed. Staff members were very accommodating and friendly, including escorting us to our site. Our group rented the hot tub. It was heavily used by all. We are already looking at our calendars and trying to find another weekend we can go back!

Decided to do a last minute trip since we had an open weekend. Very nice camp ground, mostly seasonal but a nice mix. We stayed in site M4 right along the main road. Due to configuration of our sites sewer connection and location of sewer hookup on our RV we came up short using our standard 20ft of hose. Just keep in mind if your trailer has a more forward sewer connection like ours does. The store had lots of things to choose from; however, they did not have any shirts over XL, would have bought one had they had larger sizes. Loved the wagon ride around the campground, driver did an amazing job of maneuvering around the tighter sections of the park. Lots of activities offered throughout our stay. We would definitely consider coming back to Holly Shores.

This is our second camping trip, and absolutely loved staying at Castaways! Stayed in the Club Castaway's Section site 20B. The welcome center was very nice, and the staff could not be not more friendly! Had no trouble backing into our site. Hooks up were very easy and accessible. The site also has a spot to park a vehicle. This park is very dog friendly, with many dog related amenities. The Camp Store was well stocked and had a lot of useful items. We came early in the season so cannot speak of the pools, beach or Jackspot Tiki Bar since it was too cold and they were closed till next month. Lots of work was being done to update many features of the campground. Assateague Island was right across the bay, and we even saw one of the Wild Horses running along the island right from our site. This is definitely an RV Resort and not a campground, and will be back for sure!

Our maiden voyage with our new travel trailer, and since winter does not want to end we decided to dry camp and use the facilities. White Oak staff was very accommodating with us and we where able to use the bathrooms located behind the General Store; was a quick walk from our campsite. Bathroom facilities were a bit dated but workable. We stayed in site #7 along the front row of the property offering an amazing view of mountains, as well as local farms and the roadside where many Amish buggies were visible. Kids loved being located next to the playground. Only issue we had was the sites are very close together and did not have much room between them. We would definitely stay there again.
