Delaware Seashore State Park, Rehoboth Beach, Delaware

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $44.00
Overall Rating:

This park is just south of Rehoboth Beach, DE. It has 403 full hookup sites located on both inland sides of the Indian River Inlet. The Inlet suspension bridge hovers in the background but traffic noise was subdued. Sites are open, allowing easy access to satellite TV. There is no WiFi. An attendant said there were written rules somewhere but none were presented at check-in. Anglers cast along the seawall and the Atlantic Ocean beach is an easy walk under the bridge. Try to park to place jacks on the pavement rather than sand. We camped at Delaware Seashore State Park in a Motorhome.

Atlantic Oaks Campground, Eastham, Massachusetts

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $75.00
Overall Rating:

This long-time favorite park was as busy as ever a week after Labor Day, although some Cape Cod restaurants were already shutting down at the end of the tourist season. Arnold's, a great lobster and seafood place a short walk from the campground, was open only on weekends (and still was cash only). Van Rensselaer's Restaurant, a fine choice up the street, was open full-time. The bike path out the back of the park offered a 4-mile ride to Marconi Beach. Site K-2 was chosen because it is one of the few spots where satellite TV is available. Spots are pull-in, back out. The oaks bounced acorns off our fiberglass roof all week, an interesting phenomenon. We camped at Atlantic Oaks Campground in a Motorhome.

Beaver Dam Campground, Berwick, Maine

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $50.00
Overall Rating:

This inland park was chosen as a jumping-off spot for day trips to southern Maine and Portsmouth, N.H. A reverse polarity condition was detected by our electrical protection equipment at the first assigned site, #20. Management readily agreed to a site change to #13 (another 30-amper, at a slightly higher price). It passed the electrical tests and was surfaced with gravel rather than sand. It did take several boards to level our motor home. Rules took up entire page of tiny type - estimated to be more than 1,200 words - and did not mention that guests were charged fees. WiFi was very good in the near-empty park. The day after Labor Day the swimming pool was already closed. Clam Chowder at Union Bluff Hotel in York Beach was as excellent as it was when we tried it a couple of years ago. The Oar House in Plymouth provided a fine dinner. We camped at Beaver Dam Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

A hike to Balancing Rock in the Orris Falls Conservation area was a fairly easy 3 ½ miles long. The Falls were just a gurgle. A tour of the Plymouth Moffatt-Ladd House included a lot of history, and a tree dating back to the Declaration of Independence. A farm market down the road from the park had lots of fresh produce. Some prices were higher than at a weekly farmers' market near City Hall. A Hannaford super market is nearby.

Kiptopeke State Park, Cape Charles, Virginia

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $52.00
Overall Rating:

This pleasant park on the Chesapeake Bay has hiking trails, a small beach, and fishing and boat launch facilities. It is on the southern tip of the Virginia shore, a few miles from the entrance to the Chesapeake Bay Bridge/Tunnels. In the camping area, center rows are open for satellite TV but are first come, first served. Reservable places are along the edges and have lots of trees. All sites are back-in. There is no WiFi but a decent Verizon signal. A Food Lion, new in 2018, is the only significant market nearby. We camped at Kiptopeke State Park in a Motorhome.

My Brother's Place Campground, Houlton, Maine

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $31.00
Overall Rating:

Older park with lots of grass between sites. Utilities were fine and site was satellite useable. The fishing pond had microscopic trout, as far as we could tell. The Park is very close to a US/Canadian border crossing. Check out local activities: the Potato Festival had lobster (and potatoes) for $15 with a band playing afterwards with locals dancing along. Chicken the next night at the Fire Department Fundraiser was tough. Hiking and bike paths available. The hiking trails at Aroostook State Park were pretty tough for older folks. Check out the world's largest scale model of our planetary system, starting with the formerly furthest planet, Pluto, at the Houlton Visitors Center. Nearby Hartland, New Brunswick, had "the world's longest covered bridge" but it was closed to automobile traffic. Gourmet restaurant Wine 'Til Nine is only open Thursdays and Fridays but well worth a visit for a night out. We camped at My Brother's Place Campground in a Motorhome.

Balsam Woods Campground, Abbot Village, Maine

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $48.00
Overall Rating:

This crowded campground exists primarily for children -- with a pool and lots of activities -- and motor-oriented adults with ATV parking and access. Cost is demand driven; our site went from $40 to $48 depending on date. Using your air conditioning is an extra $2/day. The walking path we tried was not well maintained. Exit SR 6 at Pond Road. Ignore any computer instructions that have another route (particularly via Prides Loop; you will end up in the pond). We camped at Balsam Woods Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Great smoked ribs at Spring Creek BBQ in Monson. Elliotsville Road leading to the Little Wilson Falls hike is found north of Monson, not in town at the post office as some directions indicate. The hike is mild to moderate, intersects the Appalachian Trail, and the waterfall is pretty. The last mile of the road in to the hiking site is rough.

Stonehurst Golf Course & Trailer Park, Moncton, New Brunswick

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

This large family-oriented, camp has lots of grass for kids to play plus the usual playground facilities. The pool has only limited hours (it closes 4:30-6 p.m., presumably for the dinner hour) and is surrounded by barbed wire. A golf course and driving range are on the edges of the property. Staff is very helpful and knows which sites are satellite friendly. Cost is converted to $US. Lots to do in nearby Moncton: don't miss seeing The Bore (a 3-6' wall of water rushing up the very top of the Bay of Fundy funnel) which announces tide changes. Best viewing is from downtown Bore Park. Arrive at least 15 minutes early; the actual Bore often varies from predicted arrivals. We camped at Stonehurst Golf Course & Trailer Park in a Motorhome.

Harbour Light Campground, Pictou, Nova Scotia

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $23.00
Overall Rating:

Water view sites are available for short-term campers although seasonal residents occupy most of the park. Ours had 30-amp electricity. This large park has a pool; propane is available; and there is a long path to a beach. Cost converted to USD. Slavishly following GPS instructions may take you on the narrow, bumpy streets of downtown Pictou; better to follow Church Street through town. Alternative: at the roundabout into town, take the exit for the Prince Edward Island Ferry and turn east on Three Brooks Road just before the ferry's ticket booth. Nearby New Glasgow has large grocery, hardware and other stores. Fresh fish is available at the Visitors' Information building by the second roundabout, but not on Monday or Tuesday. The pulp mill referred to in an earlier review is miles away; we smelled nothing with the wind blowing our way. We camped at Harbour Light Campground in a Motorhome.

Bras D'Or Lakes Campground, Baddeck, Nova Scotia

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

The campground is indeed on the lake, but the closest RV to the water is about 100 yards away and water views are very limited. Some sites, including ours, had electrical and sewer problems which were attended to after some nagging and repeated electrician visits. Utilities were at the very back of most sites. Road noise most noticeable from Trans Canadian Highway at sites 1-8 and 26-31. Satellite TV was limited by the location -- east of 61-degrees west, we could only pick up SD channels. Cable TV worked well. The WiFi was slow but rock-solid even when the park was full. Price is converted to $US and seemed high for an older facility. Baddeck, three miles away, is equidistant from popular parts of the Cabot Trail but most popular features were a 1-2 hour drive away. On the eastern part of the Trail, the Skyline hike is spectacular at the end but had far too many hikers on a summer weekday, particularly since half of the loop was closed. It was a 1½ hour drive away. There is a rail trail for bicycles but the nearest junction with parking is an hour away. Other than a couple of pizza places, restaurants in Baddeck featured little other than seafood. Some of the route to the western part of Cabot Trail was rough, but not as bad as the roads up the eastern side. We camped at Bras D'Or Lakes Campground in a Motorhome.

Northumberland Provincial Park, Wood Islands, Prince Edward Island

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $33.00
Overall Rating:

Pull through sites 15-19 and 22-26 at the Northumberland Provincial Park had 50-amp electricity and lovely views when parked towards the eponymous strait. The last 3 in each row may get better satellite reception (or we may have been too far east to get HD channels with a U.S. dish). A few mosquitoes appeared in the early evening. Price is in $US. The favorable conversion rate made the Park a real bargain. Vehicle washing was allowed. The We camped at Northumberland Provincial Park in a Motorhome.

Red Point Provincial Park, Souris, Prince Edward Island

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

This Provincial Park is a great jumping off spot for day trips such as the East Point Lighthouse. Terraces mean a lot of sites have good views of the Northumberland Strait. Technologically, it is getting near the edge: cell service was spotty, electricity was 118 volts with 30 amps; WiFi was wimpy except near the office (and cost $2 a day per device); and our non-Canadian satellite dish could receive only SD channels. We camped at Red Point Provincial Park in a Motorhome.

The small town of Souris, 8 miles away, had 2 mediocre grocery stores so stock up near Charlottetown. Some fresh seafood was available for picnic eating or takeout at The Lobster Shack and from a guy selling out of the back of a truck southeast of downtown. Julie's Place had $8 men's haircuts. Avoid the crab cakes at Rick's Fish & Chips. A bike path from near the port featured a 6-mile ride to Harmony Junction (where there's nothing except an intersection).

Tips for other Campers:

The (mostly free) Summerside Lobster Carnival, the second weekend in June, had cooking demonstrations galore with lots of free samples, and complimentary dinnertime hot dogs and lobster dishes. The Confederation Trail is an island-length rail trail of packed dirt and gravel with many parking spots to launch short rides or walks. A visit at a nearby alpaca farm was interesting but protect your ankles with bug repellant. Carr's Oyster Bar, a half hour drive away in Stanley Bridge, had ice cold and very fresh oysters, and a nice view of the bridge and fishing boat port. On the way back, we visited the house on which the Anne of Green Gables series was based and bought a pound of fresh scallops at Basin View Seafood.

Rockwood Park, Saint John, New Brunswick

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

This large campground is near downtown Saint John and is owned by a horticultural association. Our site in the middle of the little-occupied camp had all the standard U.S. amenities; water, sewer and 50-amp electric. That is a "3-way" site in the Canadian jargon but 30-amp electric is more common. Our pull-through was in the middle, making satellite television easy. Our high rating is biased by the few occupied sites; when full it might feel more cramped. Lily's in-park restaurant had food and drink appropriate for casual dining. We camped at Rockwood Park in a Motorhome.

The very easy walk around Lily Lake is about a mile long. In town, the City Market has great groceries and prime beef. The Reversing Rapids are worth visits at high and low tides (but The Bore in Moncton is more dynamic). Check out both viewing sites, one upstream of the other. Touring north of Saint John may involve free ferry rides.

Seaview Campground, Cottages and Motel, Eastport, Maine

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $50.00
Overall Rating:

We returned to this long-time favorite to find the same beautiful views of the Passamaquoddy Bay. The seeing is best for some sites by driving straight in rather than backing; the "wrong way" orientation works because utilities are close to the center of the motorhome. Limited WiFi is now free but sporadic. Our site was more level than the ones used previously. Satellite TV worked well at the waterside sites but probably will be hampered at spaces in the heavily-forested part of the park. Seasonal campers take up a large portion of the spaces. A few cabins are available. The onsite restaurant served overcooked lobster and plastic picks; other menu items may be better. In town, Raye's Mustard mill makes dozens of the condiments. A 3-hour boat trip gave a closeup of the "Old Sow" said by Rand McNally to be the largest whirlpool in the Western Hemisphere (best seen a couple hours before high tide). We also saw whales, eagles, porpoises, a seal and a demonstration of lobster trap fishing. The small town of Eastport features seafood-oriented restaurants with views of lobster and fishing boats. The Port is the furthest east of any in the United States. The best way into Eastport from points west is via Bangor and Calais. Other highways, including U.S. 1, are rough and curvy. A free tour of Franklin Roosevelt's summer home on Campobello Island requires a roundabout drive and passports as it is in Canada. It's a more convenient stop when you are headed for Eastport from the south. We camped at Seaview Campground, Cottages and Motel in a Motorhome.

Turtle Kraal RV Park, Alton, New Hampshire

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $50.00
Overall Rating:

This is a large park in a big field with pull-throughs in the middle with good satellite access and back-in sites along the heavily-treed periphery. The price seemed a bit high, but it is in the middle of the Lake Winnipesaukee resort area. The two pages of rules included a prohibition of bird feeders "as they attract wildlife." Late arrivals are not permitted but the check-in hours of 1 to 5p.m. may be flexible. The park was about 50% occupied, way up from our visit a couple of years before. Most of the RVs seemed to be seasonals. WiFi worked well under these conditions. The camp has a pool and a pond and access to a finger of the Lake. Bluegills but nothing bigger were biting on worms. For a fine meal, try Shipley's at the Pier in nearby Alton Bay. Get a window table for a view of the lake and check out the wall photos of lake activities including private planes landing on the frozen lake in the winter. For cyclers, the Cotton Valley Rail Trail is an easy and pleasant ride from its start in Wolfeboro. Knight's Pond conservation area has a small body of water; a path around it from the "picnic area" (no tables; only rocks to sit on) presents challenges: take it clockwise, wear hiking boots, use a walking stick, and watch for the blue blazes. Map available on the Internet. Enter from NH 28 via Rimes Road, not Knight's Pond Road, which is private. We camped at Turtle Kraal RV Park in a Motorhome.
