Baddeck Cabot Trail Campground, Baddeck, Nova Scotia

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

The location of this park is the only thing that saved me from giving it a less than average review. The sites for the travelers are VERY tight! To get our 37 Ft fifth wheel to fit onto the site, we had to back up within inches of the camper behind us. When we put our awning out, we had about 2 feet of space to the next rig. Thankfully, we had great neighbors and we all worked together to park our tow vehicles. When we left in the morning, we had to ask neighbors to move their cars so we could exit. The campground is very pretty and their are large areas set aside for playgrounds etc. The more spacious sites are set aside for the seasonal campers. We would not return to this park. Too tight! We camped at Baddeck Cabot Trail Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Kiwanis Oceanfront Camping, St. Andrews, New Brunswick

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $45.00
Overall Rating:      

The location of this park located right on the bay in St. Andrews earns the 9 star rating. There are a variety of sites to choose from including ocean front, which we had, ocean view and interior. The seasonal residents have the interior spots and the spots with the best views are saved for the travelers like us. The sewer hook ups are on both sides of the camper so RVs can pull directly in and face the water with their big windshields. Some might find the spaces a bit tight depending on who is parked around you and which direction they are pointed. We were fortunate to have a small camper on each side of us so it was not an issue. The firepits for the ocean front spots are behind the campers so you can enjoy the view. Wifi was fairly strong. The laundry had 4 washers and dryers and they cost $2.50 each to operate. The campground is located within easy walking distance of the downtown area and you also have access to ocean front trails. We would definitely stay here again. The price quoted for the site is in CA$. We camped at Kiwanis Oceanfront Camping in a Fifth Wheel.

Camping Gaspé, Gaspe, Quebec

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

This is a hard review to write and be fair to the park. The biggest concern relates to the space between campers. The campsites are set so that you pull through in opposite directions from each other meaning that your front door faces the front door of the camper adjacent to you. We were quite fortunate to be there during low season so we did not have campers on either side of us. However, if we had, I'm fairly sure our awnings would touch. The tightness of the campground aside, this was a beautifully maintained park right on the water. The owners are quite meticulous about property upkeep and maintenance. The campground is located along a main road, but it is not heavily trafficked. There are some seasonal campers, but they are in a forested area apart from travelers. There is only one washer and dryer. The fire "rings" are set on old lawnmower chassis and are easily moved. The sites are fairly short requiring you to set your rig at the front or back end of the pull through in order to park your tow. Most people, like we, used another camping space to park the tow. We camped at Camping Gaspé in a Fifth Wheel.

Camping de Carleton-sur-Mer, Carleton-sur-Mer, Quebec

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

What a great campground! We had a back in site right on the beach with full hook ups. Though the campground was quite open, there was a lot of space between our camper and the surrounding campers and the angle of the site gave us more ocean view than camper view. The park had a lot of amenities for families; however, since we were there later in the season, most activities were shut down. Grocery stores, pharmacies, fresh fish markets and gas are all within an easy drive. Since we only used this as an overnight spot, we did not really explore the area other than to ride the bike trail from the park around the bay and explore the lighthouse. There was free wifi, but the signal strength was very weak at the campsite (how often do you read that in a review!) We camped at Camping de Carleton-sur-Mer in a Fifth Wheel.

South Kouchibouguac Campground (Parks Canada), Kouchibouguac National Park, New Brunswick

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

This is another example of a fine Canadian National Park that is big rig friendly. Our back in spot put us right on the bike path. We were heavily forested but limbs had been cleared so it was not a problem for the camper. The site was fairly level. The bike/walking path directly behind the camper took us to the beaches. The full hook ups worked well. This was a great place to enjoy the shores of the Gulf of St. Lawrence. The reservations web site does a good job of sharing specifics about the options for each campsite including forested vs open. Since we camped here during 2017, there was no visitor charge for using the national park. Next year, the fees will be assessed again. The campground is located about 12 kilometers from the visitor center. Interior roads were nice. We camped at South Kouchibouguac Campground (Parks Canada) in a Fifth Wheel.

Cavendish Campground (Parks Canada), Prince Edward Island National Park, Prince Edward Island

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $26.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a beautiful park located on the NE tip of Prince Edward Island. We was fairly easy to maneuver to our spot though a couple of turns were tight. We had a lovely pull through with full hook ups and a view of the beach across the way. There was ample distance between campsites and the wooded arena gave us a private feeling. There was great beach access and we enjoyed the bike trails. Since this campground is somewhat remote, access to stores and gas stations is a bit of a drive. The price quoted for the campsite is in Canadian currency so this is quite a value for a full hook up spot and does not include the roughly $50 you will pay for the toll to return to the mainland on the bridge. We camped at Cavendish Campground (Parks Canada) in a Fifth Wheel.

Camping de la Joie, Quebec City, Quebec

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $42.00
Overall Rating:      

This park is located about a 20 minute drive from Quebec City which makes it a great location for exploring the area. The campground is most made up of seasonal campers who use the area for vacationing. Normally, that review only would deter me from staying here. However the seasonal campers do a nice job keeping their sites manicured and clean. Since we were here after Labor Day, most of the seasonal residents were not in residence. The park is located on a hillside in a heavily wooded area. Our site was quite beautiful and we backed up to dense woods. However, getting into the spot was a bit tricky as we had to drive up a steep hill and then back the camper up a hill to get to the more level area. Make sure you have leveling blocks handy. You will need them. The location of the utilities was good. The clubhouse has a pool, DVD's to check out and free WiFi. WiFi can be purchased at your site for $2.00 a day. We camped at Camping de la Joie in a Fifth Wheel.

The IGA grocery is close by. CANAC (like a Home Depot) at exit 156 refills propane tanks. Quebec City is a must. If you have a tall vehicle (we drive an F-250) you will not be able to park in a garage. Parking is available along the street if you go to the upper side.

Mark Twain Cave Campground, Hannibal, Missouri

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $32.00
Overall Rating:      

This park is located in the town of Hannibal which makes it a great location for exploring the city. We were quite happy with our spot as we were on the end nestled in the trees and the next closest camper was three sites away from us. Had we been there on a busy weekend, we would have felt cramped. The sites vary considerably from full sun to shade and they vary in terms of space between sites. The water connection was a shared device with a splitter located on the opposite side of our camper requiring the use of extra hose. The site was level and ours was easy to back into. We would stay here again as it appears to be the best place for touring Hannibal. We camped at Mark Twain Cave Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Indiana Dunes State Park, Chesterton, Indiana

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $32.00
Overall Rating:      

Be aware you will pay a $12 state park visitor fee on top of the camping fee, so the cost of the evening was $44. We used this park for an overnight stay as we were traveling east from Missouri to Detroit. What a great find! Our site #66 was a back in, electric only 50amp. The site was level and we had some privacy due to the size of the lot and the natural vegetation between us and the campers around us. We were there on a Friday, so the campground was quite full. Reservations are a must. We enjoyed hiking across the boardwalk to the shore of Lake Michigan and viewing the Chicago skyline in the distance. There was ample room to leave our truck hooked up to the camper. We would stay here again. We camped at Indiana Dunes State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Canyon Vistas RV Resort (55+ park), Gold Canyon, Arizona

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

Hands down, this is one of the nicest full-service RV parks ever. The event and social calendar of free activities is extensive including happy hours twice a week with live music, bocce ball, pickel ball, two heated pools and spas, woodworking shop, etc. EVERYONE we met was very friendly and we quickly established friendships even as short-timers. The grounds are immaculate. The sites in the temporary area near the front of the resort are very spacious. The only comment about the sites is the location of the sewer. It's way to the back of the site. We had to use 3 sections of sewer hose to reach the connection. Utilities work well. Cable is available for a fee from a local provider but we got over 30 TV channels over the air. WiFi is quite strong if you are near the rec center but weakens elsewhere. Make reservations early! We camped at Canyon Vistas RV Resort (55+ park) in a Fifth Wheel.

Paradise RV Resort (55+ Resort), Sun City, Arizona

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $47.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a full-service RV resort with amenities like a pool, pickle ball courts etc. The grounds are immaculate and the hosts at the front gate were particularly helpful. The RV sites are tucked in among aging park models and this is one reason my rating is less than stellar. The park is mostly older park models. We had one other camper near us in a fifth wheel. As a result, the residents tend to stay to themselves inside their homes. For us, it lost the sense of community you get when camping with others who are on the go like we are. The site was gravel with a concrete pad and a spot to park the car. There was no landscaping between sites, but the sites were fairly spacious. A $4 daily resort fee is charged regardless of your use of the facility. We were in town for spring training, so the location was good and our basic needs were met for the several days we were there. We camped at Paradise RV Resort (55+ Resort) in a Fifth Wheel.

Travelers World RV Resort, San Antonio, Texas

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $38.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a beautiful RV park located adjacent to the San Antonio River Walk. We were camped in a back in site on the perimeter of the park that had trees and a manicured lawn surrounding the camper. There is a concrete pad with a picnic table. The RV area is gravel and it was groomed and raked prior to our arrival. The swimming pool is very small. The hot tub had a nice temperature. Laundry was inexpensive and the WiFi actually worked!! as well as cable. Location! Location! Location. It is 4 miles from the park along the River Walk to the main attractions and 5 miles in the other direction to 4 different missions. We enjoyed biking this amazing path and saw many people walking. Bus transportation is easily accessible as the stop is right across the street from the resort. Daily passes are $2.75. We camped at Travelers World RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Sierra Vista Mobile Home Village and RV Park, Sierra Vista, Arizona

Date of Stay: February, 2017 - $27.00
Overall Rating:      

This is primarily a mobile home park. However, don't let deter you from checking it out as a camping option. The mobile homes are very well kept and most are occupied by seniors. The RV part is located at the back of the development in its own section and backs up to undeveloped area giving you wonderful views of the surrounding mountains. The sites are gravel with concrete pads for the picnic table. A unique feature is a large storage shed on each site that was large enough to hold our bicycles and other gear. The office staff is very helpful and one of the permanent residents dropped by to encourage us to participate in some of their organized activities. There are two club houses. One has an indoor pool and spa. The other has an outdoor pool (not heated during the winter). There is a large lending library and everything is incredibly clean. The one concern relates to how tight the road is leading to your site. The space itself was 40' long and there was plenty of room to park our truck behind our fifth wheel. However we had to do some tricky maneuvering to get in and out of the spot. So if you are looking for a good, basic spot to stay while exploring this area, Sierra Vista is worth a look. Also, this is one of the few RV parks where the Wi-Fi actually worked! We camped at Sierra Vista Mobile Home Village and RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Fireside Resort - Jackson Hole Campground, Wilson, Wyoming

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $143.00
Overall Rating:      

This is hard to rate because the park is so incredibly expensive. However, unless you reserve months in advance, you can't get into one of the national park or forest service campgrounds. The local KOA couldn't accommodate our 37 foot rig. Long story short, we were stuck. Our site, 92, was located on the exterior edge with beautiful woods and a stream around us. The site was gorgeous and quite long. The water and electrical connections were appropriately placed but the sewer connection was uphill and behind the camper. The WiFi connection was OK. The laundry was exceptionally clean but there were only 4 washers. The park was very quiet. Jackson has an elaborate network of paved biking/walking trails and the campground is adjacent to one of the trails. The location in Wilson was ideal for exploring the national park and for enjoying the amenities in Jackson Hole. So, the biggest beef with this park is the price. We camped at Fireside Resort - Jackson Hole Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Ruby's Inn RV Park and Campground, Bryce Canyon, Utah

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $44.00
Overall Rating:      

There are two sections to this park. The older section is embedded within a pine forest. The newer section toward the back of the park is mostly gravel. The big rigs fit best in the newer section. Our site, 219, was on the second to the last row. We had great utility hooks up, a level gravel pad, 84 cable channels, and a huge green lawn area. The site is about 50 feet square...huge! Also, we had excellent cell reception and great WiFi connection. The park offers a number of amenities like a pool and hot tub and is adjacent to the Ruby complex that includes gifts, groceries, laundry, etc. The small lake and surrounding pine forest make for a nice setting. The location is ideal for exploring Bryce Canyon. Some of the interior roads are dirt and can be dusty. However campers are respectful and drive slowly minimizing the dust. You won't find another campground of this quality this close to the park. We camped at Ruby's Inn RV Park and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
