First time staying at Normandy Farms; stayed their with a few other camping friends. Campground is immaculately maintained; very nicely landscaped and has many things to offer. Enough pools throughout the campground, so even on the hottest day they were never overcrowded. Verizon cell signal was marginal at best; campground cable had quite a large channel offering and was clear signal. Site D1 was a very nice pull thru site that had tons of room lengthwise (able to park our Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, Motorhome and a Chevy Suburban on the site) and very level. Campground was very close to Patriot Place; and not too far from Boston for a few day trips to site see. Tons of kids activities throughout our stay. Camp store was a bit out of the way from the main camping area, but was manageable.

Second time staying at Big Timber. Check in takes quite a bit of time by front desk staff, and road can back from all units waiting to get in. Site 187 was mix of grass and sand; and very small width wise but was deep however the back end of the site dropped off so couldn't back RV to far back. Pool was crowded most of the days due to the heat; however it was never over crowded and always were able to find a place to relax in it. Kids enjoyed the lake and activities they provided. Location of campground is pretty much center of Cape May County so if you plan to leave the campground to explore there are plenty of options within a short car ride.

First time staying at Bethpage, heard lots about the camp ground prior to going and wanted to check it out ourselves. Site was VERY spacious, and level. Site was grass with some dirt, wish there was a bit more gravel on sites. Strong odor of septic the first night however mgmt stayed on top of the issue and pumped out the system multiple times throughout our stay. Pool and waterpark was very busy due to the heat, temperature of the water was also very hot, and at times not very refreshing. Our site (Sycamore 3) was on the main road of the campground and was a great view for the nightly golf cart cruising. Ice cream store and mini golf was extremely far from main campsites. Our group enjoyed a sunset cruise on the Bethpager.

Massey's is a true up and coming RV resort. That being said I will address the negatives first and then the positives: Negatives: -Site VERY un-level that slopes back. -Water connection extremely low - Playground/dog park is behind site with no real access so others are constantly cutting through site. -Upon arrival there was no picnic table at site, requested multiple times didn't get a table delivered till second day. -Staff needs LOTS of training! You will get different answers to same questions and none of them are correct until you speak to a manager. -Could not re-book for next year as they are not sure when or how they will do re-bookings?!?! -Wifi was a constant issue to connect and cell service (Verizon) was spotty at best. -Very limited t-shirt selection in store (No Big sizes either) once again not sure why since this is free advertising for the campground. Positives: -AMAZING Pool, swim up bar! -Kids activities were good (could add more through out weekend days). -Sites are good size and include a parking spot for a tow vehicle or toad -Beach and dog beach are nice -Cafe has excellent food (Crab dip is amazing)

Celebrated Memorial Day Weekend at Sea Pirate with a group of other friends. Campground was very clean, the maintenance staff were noticeably always on patrol for litter and removal of trash. Store was large, and had a variety of items, didn't have a large selection of shirts especially larger sizes (never understood this since it is free advertising for their campgrounds). The grill/ice cream parlor was very pricey, and the young staff members were easily overwhelmed and could learn some customer service tips! The 500 section seemed to be the nicest part of the campground. The pool was very crowded, with many people holding seats with towels. Dog park was very nice, and they even provided toys for the dogs.

Stayed once again for Mother's Day Weekend with a large group of friends, this campground once again does not disappoint! We have been coming multiple times over the years and every spring you can see the management does amazing work in the off season to update and improve the campground! Sites are very spacious, and extremely well maintained. I highly recommend this campground, and remains one of our favorites! Verizon cell signal is good, site 312 is not good for satellite viewing (able to get roughly 45 channels with campground cable)

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.
