Joy RV Park

Cocoa, Florida

Date of Stay:

Close to I-95, this is a good place for an overnight stay or a couple of days. Very long pull-through sites. Heated pool and good WiFi. Some noise from Interstate not a problem with windows closed. Satellite TV okay from most spots.

Date of Stay:

The Raven Fork river is right at the edge of the park, with some camping from tents to motor homes available on the bank. The river and nearby waters are stocked with trout, and most places are "catch and keep". A Cherokee Indian fishing license ($10 for one day; $17 for two) is required. Most non-tent sites are on concrete. The park was comfortable when about 30% full. The spots, however, are very close together and a full park may feel crowded. The campground was well kept up with the exception of decrepit fire rings. WiFi is almost non-existent with slightly better reception near the office; even there, speed was in the 1-4 kps range (that's kilobytes per second, not megabytes) and useful only for collecting email. The campground is surrounded by hills; satellite TV is available only at a few sites. Camping is cash only.

Date of Stay:

Get away from it all at this well-kept state park: no satellite TV; no OTA; skimpy Verizon cell service; WiFi almost nonexistent. The few RV sites are back-in and may require leveling. The river bluff trail is an easy 1.5 mile hike overlooking the Edisto River.

Date of Stay:

Easy on and off from I-95. Long pull-through spots have utilities at the rear which may require unhooking towed vehicle. WiFi sturdy but slow (3 mps).

Date of Stay:

This camp has resort facilities such as an elaborate playground, fishing pond and pool. It is heavily wooded except for several sites in a field where satellite dishes can work. Don't arrive at night without arranging for camp personnel; there are complicated pathways and few lights. Don't miss the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts: it is on the grounds of the original Woodstock Festival and elaborately commemorates the event.

Date of Stay:

This park had heavily-potholed entry roads, traffic noise and no Wi-Fi. Our 30-amp, no sewer site delivered only 109 volts of electricity. The few spots with 50 amp and sewer were occupied by long-term customers. A bridge on the only access road had a 27,000 pound limit, a legalism frequently ignored to judge by the Class A motor homes in the park. Our satellite dish had no problems. Verizon phone/internet service was spotty.

Date of Stay:

"Notches" in the local lingo are mountain passes and the camp has fine views of 5 of them. Dixville Notch, home of the first presidential vote reporting (the few residents gather at midnight to cast their ballots) is one of them. The park is ATV/snowmobile oriented, with trail connections on the grounds. Price reflects weekly rate. Wi-Fi is spotty; best near the office. This is the northern-most reviewed camp in New Hampshire. No satellite TV problems. The genial owner had local information and the Chamber of Commerce downtown (on the second floor of a bank building) had lots of maps and suggestions.

Date of Stay:

Campground has added strong Wi-Fi. This newish park still is pretty much 2 open fields for motorhomes, plus sites on the heavily-wooded periphery for others. Satellite dish worked well in the open area. No problem with Verizon.

Date of Stay:

All sites are pull throughs. Rate is for low season after Labor Day. This is generally a very good park but for a few quibbles: getting a spot suitable for satellite TV is difficult (all those oaks). Most useable spots are occupied by seasonals or returning customers who reserved specific, satellite-friendly sites. Most other spots leave the camper with mediocre cable (standard definition, 24 channels, none of them premium) or OTA TV. Try several different staffers and you may find one who will try to find a satellite-friendly spot for you. Lots of mulch and gravel have been imported to alleviate the problems of the sites being on dirt but much of the gravel had dissipated by Labor Day. Sites have been leveled since we were last here two years ago but some spots have sharp drop-offs requiring rigs to be backed out. Wi-Fi and other utilities operated flawlessly.

Date of Stay:

The campground is primarily a seasonal park with many activities for children but daily sites are available. We had a good back-in on sand. The place is heavily forested, making use of satellite dish impossible. There is no cable TV. Wifi was good.

Date of Stay:

The waterfront sites have lovely scenery of the Passamaquoddy Bay and Canadian islands Deer and Campobello. We parked "wrong way" to the utilities to get the best view. Extreme leveling with several boards put the front wheels in the air. Wifi was poor and Verizon unavailable except for a Canadian signal available to users of the company's international service. The Old Sow whirlpool (ask at the office for a map) can be seen a couple hours before high tide from rocks a short hike away. It was barely discernible the day we looked but several small "piglets" twirled sticks and seaweed around for a minutes at a time. The campground's onsite restaurant closes after Labor Day.

Date of Stay:

From your campsite, a huge expanse of Bay of Fundy mud flats opens up as the tide falls. Few can resist walking in the mud, which is thick enough to suck off shoes. The secret to easy movement is to walk in the stream beds that form as low tide approaches. Most sites have good views, but trees encroach beginning with front row spots above #15. There's a new owner and pets are now allowed.

Date of Stay:

Closeness to the Hopewell Rocks is this place's selling point. Our site had a nice view of the lake and marshland. We walked out to the dam after sunset but didn't spot any moose. The 10 mph speed limit is governed by prevalent potholes. Wifi was weak at our site far from the office.

Date of Stay:

This park is mostly seasonals with a small, unlevel, area for transients. Our motorhome needed several boards and ended up with the front wheels off the ground.

Date of Stay:

Basic no frills campground on the Annapolis River. Payment by cash only. Wifi was very good. On-site propane was very expensive, $US4.80 a gallon by our figuring, also cash only. The park is kept up pretty well, possibly because it is for sale.
