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.

Park is near the ferry to Nova Scotia. A great little fish shack, Wood Island Seafood, is a left turn just before the ferry ticket office. The Confederation Rail Trail is nearby for bicyclers. An easy ride from the Murray River parking spot to Murray Harbor brought us to the Harbourview Restaurant for lunch.

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).

Linkletter Provincial Park, Summerside, Prince Edward Island

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

This Provincial Park near Summerside had camping for all types. Our pull-through "3 way" site (water, electric, sewer) had a nice view of Northumberland Strait. Satellite TV worked fine. A malfunctioning 50-amp socket was fixed promptly. We camped at Linkletter Provincial Park in a Motorhome.

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.

Tips for other Campers:

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.

Ashuelot River Campground, Swanzey, New Hampshire

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

Well-kept large park with helpful owners. Site for all types, from tents in the trees, spots along the Ashuelot River, and open fields for dish TV folks. Available utilities vary but our full hookup worked well except when the whole town of West Swanzey went dark after a bad storm. Game room in the office building. Verizon signal was weak. WiFi available only near the office. Get arrival directions from the office - mapping programs will take you to RV-impassible covered bridges (there are 6 in the area). Good grocery stores and shopping north on State Road 10. The Ashuelot River runs slowly alongside the campground. Swimming is encouraged, and catchable fish are rumored to be upriver. Canoes and kayaks are available for a fee. Hiking in the Dickinson Memorial Forest begins at the rear of the Campground; use bug spray. The well-maintained packed dirt and gravel Ashuelot Rail Trail can be reached by paved roads for biking or by hiking through the forest; road with covered bridge is 3 miles north and the town of Keene is about 7 miles away. Trail to the south peters out to a mud path through unmowed grass. See the very knowledgeable campground owners for details about the many hiking places in the area. We camped at Ashuelot River Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Angie's Pizzeria, a couple miles south on State Road 10, had pies made with fresh peppers and mushrooms. To the north, JimEddie's restaurant had a large smoker out front but baby back ribs without the pink meat associated with smoking. There are several shopping centers north and west of the SR 9/SR 10 intersection. Flights of local whiskies are offered at the New England Sweetwater Farm and Distillery, 8 miles south on Main Street in Winchester.

Pumpkin Patch RV Resort, Hermon, Maine

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $42.00
Overall Rating:

This is a well-kept park southwest of Bangor, ME. Follow the signs, not your GPS, for the last few hundred feet. Our pull-through was a bit unlevel but otherwise fine. There are a few trees but satellite TV was okay. WiFi was inconsistent. Verizon worked well. Propane is available. The diner that used to be steps from the office is gone. We had a mediocre dinner at Anglers Restaurant a few miles from the park: the shrimp scampi was made without garlic and we should have known not to order prime rib at a place named "Anglers." We camped at Pumpkin Patch RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Mt. Greylock Campsite Park (formerly Hidden Valley Campground), Lanesborough, Massachusetts

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

Park is in dense forestland in the Berkshires. The location may explain higher pricing than otherwise for a hilly, potholed park with 50 amp electric, water and graywater-only sewers. Price paid reflects weekly rate. Charges vary with demand and are higher on weekends and holidays. Honey wagon visits are $25 but free if you stay more than a week. Daytime visitors are $6 a head; $12 for overnight. WiFi is available "throughout the campground" but you must pay to have it at your site, $5/day for a 3 mps connection for 2 devices. Using a satellite dish was impossible through the trees and cable is unavailable. Verizon was weak but streaming video, data and phone calls worked. The pool is heated and there is a playground. The camp is quiet (except for a Saturday DJ) and close to Berkshire attractions. Owner worked diligently helping campers. We camped at Mt. Greylock Campsite Park (formerly Hidden Valley Campground) in a Motorhome.

Very good breakfast and lunch at nearby Bob's Country Kitchen, south on US 7. Tanglewood is about 10 miles away. If you plan to attend the Berkshire Craft Beer Festival, buy tickets online or days before the event; the $30 price goes to $40 on Festival day. The Lenox Rhubarb Festival was free, with $5 for a spoon to sample contest entries. Nearby Bob's Campers & RVs has a very competent mechanic. Park-sponsored activities include wagon rides for kids.

Park is close to Albany and on the Hudson River. Heavily wooded but received some channels on dish. Only on-site utility is 50 amp electric. Lots of trails.

St. Johnsville Campsite Marina, St. Johnsville, New York

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

The trains are as bad as advertised in prior reviews, day and night. Site 28, which seems to be one of the very few available to transients, is the closest to the rails and has views of dumpsters, machinery, and the inevitable trains. Tree growth prevented the entry of our motorhome without pruning. Utilities were okay and the dish worked. Vehicle washing is encouraged. Office was seldom open. Only check or cash are accepted. Nearby towns have a variety of festivals (cheese, garlic, art, etc.) but the area is mostly farms and upstate small towns. We would not return unless it was for a major personal event such as the wedding of a close friend. We camped at St. Johnsville Campsite Marina in a Motorhome.

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $71.00
Overall Rating:

Price was for the off season. Swimming pool wasn't open in early May. Lots of other stuff for kids. New owners have filled in some ruts but speeds in most of this large park are governed by the remaining potholes. Utilities were fine. Satellite accessibility is not available at most sites because of extensive foliage. Annapolis is more than ten miles away but this is the only nonmilitary park in the area.

Bishop is ideally located for traveling the Antebellum Trail - Madison is 20 minutes to the south and has beautiful houses and an outstanding walking tour with downloadable commentary. Don't miss Crowe's if you like smoked pork BBQ. Athens is 20 minutes to the north with the opulent Ware-Lyndon home. George's Low Country Table restaurant was excellent. The Georgia State Botanical Gardens were extensive and lovely.

This pleasant park has a few overnight pull-through spots but is mostly a long-term facility. The sites are mostly open but we managed to get a tree limb in the way of our dish. Analog cable provided only SD channels. Wi-Fi was very good. A pretty lake with dock and porch swing is at one end of the park. Close to I-75 but traffic noise was muted.
