Relaxing stop for an overnight or a few days. The only sites on the Iroquois River are 30 amp back-ins or tent sites. Pull-throughs had water and 50 amp but no onsite sewer. Other spots had full hookups. Nice beachy area for enjoying the water. Pleasant woods throughout. Satellite TV use tricky at a few spots, not available at most. Use of onboard laundry discouraged. Camp provided good notes on local restaurants and other attractions. Despite warnings about "vagaries" of Wi-Fi, our signal was excellent and worked on several different devices. Sites were composed of a mix of grass, dirt and a little gravel. Overnight rains left many puddles. Owner takes cash or check only. If you write a check on U.S. funds you will be giving him a large bonus when the Canadian dollar is far below the U.S. dollar.

Date of Stay:

All the usual KOA resort accouterments plus a giant rubber trampoline with the usual KOA premium ($C60). Maintenance was far below acceptable: potholes abounded and streets were narrow, muddy, and impassable by two vehicles at a time. The park was many tons short of needed gravel; many sites including ours were muddy after a rain. We called and asked for a little cover where we alighted from our Jeep but were told only, "I'll pass it on but don't expect much." Wi-Fi was weak and worked only on an iPad, not android phones. Office said: "It comes and goes." "Free" shuttle to Old Quebec offered only to clients staying two or more nights. We drove and parked for $8.

Check out the elaborate patios, glassed-in porches, etc., erected by seasonals/lot owners. Sites for overnighters are landscaped, have patios with table and chairs, a grill, and rocking-chair swings. The transient parking spaces, however, are rather narrow, making awnings unusable and under cabin bins difficult to open. Still, the best-provisioned sites ever seen. Plenty of stuff for kids. A real bargain in $US.

Date of Stay:

Some seasonals are on a wide, but shallow part of the Hudson River. Transients are across a little-used railroad track, surrounded by forest, in a field open enough for satellite TV. The pull-through sites are generously sized. Propane is available. Glen Hudson is reached via a winding ten-mile drive on narrow roads. Great place for a very relaxing weekend. Don't pull too far to the right on arrival; a sharp edge of the office roof protrudes.

Date of Stay:

Nice spot for an overnight stay. Close to I-88. Wi-Fi near office worked fine for phones but tricky to get computer to connect. State signs name this park "Belden Manor".

Date of Stay:

Large campground with many features. Wi-Fi signal looked strong but couldn't get computers connected. Phones got signal okay. Staffer said "sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't." Site not level; left front wheel was 1 ¾" off ground; others in the 800s area also had wheels in the air.

Date of Stay:

Park your rig to get the best view if you have an extension for electric. The drive up to Mountain Top is rather steep and rough but can be negotiated even with a tow. No transient sewer sites. Getting to the dump station is a bit tricky; unhook your toad before using it. A honey wagon comes around on Wednesdays. 50 amp electric had full voltage; a staffer said earlier problem has been fixed. Follow the camp's directions and use Exit 16 from Route 28. GPS/Maps will have you exit at No. 14 and put you on a narrow, hilly and twisting route.

Date of Stay:

High-end KOA with lavish landscaping, every conceivable facility, and activities for all ages, such as flashlight lollipop hunts. The high camping cost was figured to be the result of lack of supply, and demand for the last spot in town. At $80 a night, however, our site and the adjacent one had more dust and dirt than grass. Wi-Fi went in and out. Getting a satellite signal was tricky. Vehicle washing was permitted. Verizon service was good.

Date of Stay:

Heaven for ATV riders and snowmobilers. The park is on the edge of the Hiawatha Nation Forest. The sites are only a couple years old. Off-road trails abound with one abutting the camp. The Haywire state-sponsored snowmobile trail was easily negotiated in a high clearance Wrangler. Wi-Fi at the bar/restaurant was weak; worthless elsewhere. Satellite-useable sites are tricky amongst the pines. Verizon was nonexistent south of Munising all the way to the Mackinac Bridge. The camp is midway between Munising (gateway to the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore and worth at least a day) and Manistique, which has an Ace Hardware and modest Wednesday/Saturday farmers markets.

Date of Stay:

Superb park with waterfront views at every site. Only problem is there aren't enough spots; we would have stayed more than two days if there had been a cancellation. Park so you have a view of the water, forward, backward, whatever. When arriving, do NOT turn at Houghton Canal Road: no park access despite the advice of some mapping programs. Lots to do in area but don't miss the Quincey Copper Mine tour ($19 for seniors).

This county-owned park is neat and clean to a fault. An employee politely knocked on our door when a guest parked on the grass. The two large pull-thrus (56 & 57) are isolated from the other sites. There is some aircraft noise, not bad in a motorhome. Recycling is extreme: campers are issued color-coded bags for trash, recycles and a separate one for composting. Wi-Fi was solid. There is a super grocery store - HyVee - a couple miles south. Minneapolis is to the north and an easy drive. Bicycle rides around the Minneapolis city lakes revealed fabulous houses. Restaurants and bicycle rentals are available at the lakes.

This is a family-owned camp whose proprietors dote on their customers. Someone was always available dawn to dusk. Almost everything is provided for adults, children and pets: a lake, paddle boating; pet runs; fenced childrens' playgrounds; horseshoes, volleyball, etc. Wi-Fi was excellent once a one-time sign on was negotiated. The trip to Itasca State Park ($5 for a parking pass) to view - and wade in, if you wish - the headwaters of the Mississippi River was a highlight. A 2-hour tour of Lake Itaska via boat ($16) included a good history lecture and some animal sightings.

Date of Stay:

This is a well-engineered park for Class A motorhomes. Roads are wide and paved. Sites are packed gravel surrounded by grass. Curbs and stairs with banisters are placed at appropriate spots. There is a view of Lake Superior from most of the terraced sites, each of which has two sewers so rvs can be placed to maximize the view. We could find no Wi-Fi service; Verizon had a strong signal. It is a city-owned park.

Date of Stay:

The Historical Park is a lovely place for a lengthy stay surrounded by grass with a view of the Kaministiquia River from all sites, with one misunderstanding. References to "full service RV camping" should have been read more closely to realize individual sites do not have sewers, requiring that intended stays include picking up and driving to the dump site as necessary. Otherwise, staff was friendly and worked hard to keep us from having to change sites after we decided to extend our stay. The other utilities were fine and Wi-Fi worked consistently. The portapoddy we used occasionally was not emptied during our 10-day stay; otherwise cleanliness was excellent. The Fort William tour (teens of dollars) is not to be missed. Guides play 1815 roles and pretend to expect contemporaneous answers from tourists to questions such as "where did you dock your canoe." (Once we figured that out, we said we were from "a Spanish possession to the south called Florida".) Thunder Bay itself is a prosperous city with lots of major brand stores and, at least in July, frequent thunderstorms.

Date of Stay:

The park has wonderful scenery. Try to get a site that looks through the trees to the lake. To reach the camp, go past a fishing camp with the same name. Once you're there, go up a steep hill to reach the office. Wi-Fi is usable only very near the office. Satellite TV will work in the few sites with openings in the trees.
