Date of Stay:

No frills campground in the middle of the desert makes a good jumping-off spot for nearby Petrified Forest and Painted Hills national parks. Meteor Crater, AZ, is an easy hour to the West. Helpful staff, free coffee and muffins most mornings. Abundant trees exist only because of daily irrigation.

Date of Stay:

No "stay off the dunes" signs here. Visitor interaction is encouraged. Park staff even rents discs for sliding down the sandy hills. Rather short hours: discs have to be returned by 4 p.m. to the office, a 1 1/2 mile away from the camping sites. Good exhibit of how sandhills are formed at the office with extras, sounds of birds, etc. Some pull-throughs best entered by turning around at the dump station and entering through the camping exit road. Short nature trail. Stay here when your RV is dirty; you'll leave with sand inside and out.

Date of Stay:

The campground has a bit of everything, from a river (the San Marcos, with several bends) to volleyball net, catch-and-release pond to small swimming pool. Select exit path with care to avoid low trees. Didn't see trash other reviewers noted.

Date of Stay:

This kid-friendly county park has pull-throughs and water + 50 amp service. There's lots of playground equipment and the Sabine River flows by, with Texas forest on the other bank. It's 5 miles off I-20.

Date of Stay:

It's several acres of gravel and full hookups, no more and no less, closer than other campgrounds to plantations such as Laura and Oak Alley. About 25% of of the 100+ sites are occupied by unoffensive long-term construction workers on gigantic nearby projects, such as the largest ammonia plant in North America. Most of the other spaces were vacant when we were there. A half-dozen sites are pull-throughs but you could back an 18-wheeler into most of the other ones. Showers and a laundry are at the center but that's it: no playgrounds, stocked ponds, 24-hour security, hot tubs, etc. Laura Plantation (13 miles away) had guides who gave the best balance of architecture and (somewhat gruesome) history, complete with the owners' suites and ads for fugitive slaves. Our guide provided an excellent explanation of how the slave system worked, complete with a person's status being determined by who's your mother (rather than your possibly philandering father). Didn't visit Oak Alley but it seemed to be a fabulous wedding site.

Date of Stay:

Park is a good "value" alternative compared to camps on or near the beach. Mostly very long and wide pull-through sites in a field with few trees; some shaded back-ins around periphery. Extremely friendly staff. Ice was $2 for 10# on a "help yourself, pay us when you see us basis." Flat gravel sites. No rule against washing vehicles. Park is the second RV park after turning onto Wilde Lake Blvd. Minor traffic noise from I-10; nearby rooster is louder.

Date of Stay:

This state park has "cattle car" camping more often found in commercial parks with RVs jammed together, at least in Camping Area 1. Sites were heavily sloped. Other facilities were nice: well marked trails, horseback riding and an olympic-size swimming pool(closed for the season).

Date of Stay:

Ultimate convenient overnight park for any size vehicle. Less than a mile from I-65. All sites are in a large, smooth field so no problems with satellite dishes. Good WiFi included in rental price. Fast-food restaurants within walking distance. Propane available.

Date of Stay:

Lovely, heavily forested park on a mountain top. Approach streets are urban, narrow, and twisty. Full hookup sites available only on a first come, first served basis. Rest have water and electric. Great place for kids to have a camping experience. Varied trails. Beautiful lookouts.

Date of Stay:

Stream-side sites limited to smaller RVs. Big rig spots close together and very narrow. Couldn't open all compartment doors due to obstructions. Our location had recent application of dirt in attempt to level so dirt and dust tracked into home. Use of on board washer/dryers forbidden but available at office. Wi-Fi limited to 2 devices per location; owner said lots of people online caused router to "explode."

Date of Stay:

OK place for a night or two, but big rigs are crowed together. Good Wi-Fi, free for 2 devices, $3 for a 3rd. Mom & Pop restaurant on the property with okay food (breakfast, hamburgers, liver & onions). Very helpful staff will suggest things to do in the area, including a tour past Stephen King's home in a hearse.

Date of Stay:

Georgeous view of Passamaquoddy Bay and Canadian Islands (Deer, Campobello) from waterfront sites. Extremely helpful staff, particularly day clerk. Nearby lobster "pounds" have thousands of lobsters at bargain prices for those who cook on-site. Wi-Fi weak except near office; only 1st 1/2 hour free; $3/hour after that; must use all the time in one sitting. Pull-through sites have full hookups and, in waterview area, easy satellite coverage. On-site restaurant closed after Labor Day and in-town places on reduced schedule. 27' tide dramatically illustrated at local harbor. No rental cars available.

Date of Stay:

Economic option to expensive campgrounds on island where Acadia National Park is located. Huge lots in open field for big rigs. Good view for satellite dishes. Some sites for smaller RVs and seasonals are in forest. Very helpful office staff. Small store has some RV supplies and ice ($2 for 5# bag). No restaurants in walking distance but short drives to abundant lobster joints.

Date of Stay:

Funky campground with lots of seasonals but with full hookups and plenty of space for big rigs. Heavily forested. Some smaller sites have lots of isolation in the loop at the rear. Couldn't use satellite dish. Short walks to mom & pop eatery, lavish lobster restaurant, harbor with dramatic tide changes, and to tourist area. Don't miss the clam chowder at the Union Bluff Hotel.

Date of Stay:

Great park. A bit pricey (lower rates out of season), but this is Cape Cod. Camp store well stocked, prices okay. Staff was always friendly and knowledgeable. Wi-Fi included but kind of slow. Steps from great lobster joint, Arnolds. Bike trail abuts the back. Only negative was dirt pads which resulted in soil being tracked into the RV.
