Dixon's Campground was excellent. Nice, friendly owners and workers; everyone was willing to help in whatever way possible. They help you back into your sites, deliver firewood, etc. We had a big, wooded site (site #86 was great for our 20' camper) which was level and easy to get into. Clean restrooms, showers, and pool. Great location for visiting York, Ogunquit, and Kittery. Our kayak guide was excellent and a lot of fun. We will definitely return here.

We just returned from a stay at Turkey Swamp and would have given it a 10 out of 10 except for the showers. The sites are large, wooded, and private (and all pull-thru). The rangers are friendly and helpful and keep an eye on the activities in the campground. The hiking trails around the park are well marked and nicely maintained. The campsite has nice playgrounds for kids. The campsite is very convenient to many activities (Henry Hudson bike trail is really nice, 15 minutes from Six Flags, 30 mins from Trenton, etc.). The only complaint is that the showers aren't very private; i.e. you emerge from your shower into a common area. My wife and daughter did not like this. Otherwise, an excellent campsite that we will return to in the future.

Of all of the campgrounds we've seen in the Niagara Falls area, this one is definitely the nicest. The campground is located across the street from the Niagara River (south of the falls and north of Fort Erie). A quick and scenic drive up the Niagara River Parkway gets you to the falls. The staff (both in the office and in the restrooms) were courteous and friendly. Their advice on attractions, parking, and directions were always accurate and helpful. Our only complaint is that the sites are small. We had site #52 (which had a nice view of the Niagara River) but our neighbors on all sites were very close. Still I would highly recommend this campground to anyone who wants a peaceful place to sleep and stay but still have easy access to the Niagara Falls tourist attractions.

The Villages at Turning Stone is the best campsite we have ever stayed at. Each campsite is spacious. The paved pads make set up easy. The facility itself is well maintained; e.g. the grounds are nicely landscaped, the pool was clean (and had a lifegaurd), and the playground was in excellent shape. The showers were clean and large with plenty of hooks and shelves for your clothes, soap, shampoo, etc. We would have given this campsite a 10 rating except for one fact. We camped there in a hybrid trailer (the beds fold out like a pop-up) so we were more exposed to outside noise than the RVs and fifth-wheelers. Near the campground is an active railroad where trains come through very often during the night blowing their whistles. Running the AC or fan helped to drown out this noise. Otherwise, this was an excellent campground and well worth the price.

We stayed at Bar Harbor RV Park while touring Baltimore and Annapolis. The campsite has beautiful views of the river and easy access to Baltimore but we would probably not return here. The sites were small (I barely had room to back my 19' trailer into my site without hitting the camper across the road). The entire campground (including the bathrooms) were rundown and not well maintained. Our site was next to a boat house that looked like it was being torn down (or was in really horrible condition). The worse part was being across the river from a very active railroad where very noisy freight trains would come through multiple times every night.
