Table Rock State Park, Pickens, South Carolina

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $90.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed here for 3 nights. This was the last rv section at the end of a very winding road. Only lot avaiable I was told. There were several lots vacant in other parts that people came on the 3rd night. The bathrooms and showers were nasty. Wet towels on the floor until the day we left. Mud was everywhere inside the B/R. Lots had just power and water, but there was the smell of someone dumping his tanks. I spoke to a Jr Ranger (twice) bout the dirty bath, showers and the smell. The only person that had a hose out was the site host. The Jr. Ranger looked the other way. I found out that he never passed the word to the park admin. The main check in is a long way from the parking lot . There is no drive up for handicap people. There are plenty af H/C spaces but it was a long walk to the door. Move your H/C parking close to the check in building !!!!!!!!!!!!! We had no cell phone, tv reception was poor and power went out for a time . Couldn't sleep CPAP has to have power. Never again will I leave my generator at home ! And never again will I stay there. We camped at Table Rock State Park in a Truck Camper.

Trails End RV Park, Waynesville, North Carolina

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

We stayed for one (1) night towards the end of July. There are beautiful mountain views on 3 sides . The grounds are neat and flowers are everywhere. There is a small community garden and a perfect green lawn. The camp host (husband and wife ) were great ! We talked about many different topics and had lots in common. This is a perfect getaway if you want peace and quiet. The negatives no restroom or showers. At first my wife didn't like it because there wasn't alot of walkig areas. Be careful when walking on roadway residents up the road drive fast. I would go back there in a heartbeat ! Loved talking to you Capt. We camped at Trails End RV Park in a Truck Camper.

Red Gates Cottages and RV Park, Hendersonville, North Carolina

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed for two (2) days in a truck camper. Our lot #10 was small and had nice afternoon shade. We did not have to deploy our awnings like others did. The roadway and all the lots had new gravel and leveled in Nov we were told. Entrance road is narrow with deep gullies on both sides. The park was super clean and grass mowed. Tv was by antenna or dish, no wifi that I was aware of. Bathrooms were clean and newly painted. The manager Anne was still painting up a storm and she installed hanging plants on the ladies side of the bathhouse. Looked good. Hey Anne what about the men's side !!! Park was super quiet, restfull and adult oriented. If you just want to get away from it all try Red Gates. If you need activities and alot of things to do go somewhere else. THIS PARK IS WHERE YOU GO TO RECHARGE. Hey we will be back !!!! We camped at Red Gates Cottages and RV Park in a Truck Camper.

Rideau Acres Campground, Kingston, Ontario

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

This park had a beautiful lake to look at. Nice place to walk the dog.

The bathrooms were full of bugs, everywhere. I spoke to the park manager and the maint guys said the couldn't spray the bugs because EPA says they can't use chemicals!!!! I don't know if that is true or not. I wouldn't go there again. Roads are dirt and lots of ruts ! Electrical weatherproof box didn't have a cover and larger wooden splice box was leaning over and the wood was rotten. We camped at Rideau Acres Campground in a Truck Camper.

Mt Desert Narrows Camping Resort, Bar Harbor, Maine

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

Oct in Maine, beautiful scenery, right on the water. 2nd day you get a discount.
Level lots, leaking water on several lots.
Had cable tv but I had to jury rig the cable and fitting to use it, the office didn't have a fitting so I used my work experience to get it working.
Bar Harbor and Arcadia National Park are beautiful. We camped at Mt Desert Narrows Camping Resort in a Truck Camper.

Keenes Lake Family Campground, Calais, Maine

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $16.00
Overall Rating:

Verizon doesn't work in that part of Maine.

This is Oct in Maine. Park is closing for the season. Very few people there.

Host was great! She works part time and she lives in the park.

The laundry building has seen better days, roof is rotten, glass missing in some windows no door. Soaking tub was nasty. Washer and dryer worked great!

Beautiful Lake listened to the loons until I fell asleep. We camped at Keenes Lake Family Campground in a Truck Camper.

Groton Forest Road Campground, Marshfield, Vermont

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

This is Vermont ! The GPS sent us to the State Park instead of here.

Quiet, no one was there to check in.

There weren't any level lots, We had to switch our sleeping arrangements around. Our lot probably had a 30 degree downward slope.

There were about 5 people in the whole park that night. Everyone was a permanent except for us.

The stars were beautiful! No tv service, no phone service just peace and quiet after a long drive from Ont Canada that day.

The bathrooms do not have any heat so the showers didn't appear to have been used for awhile. It was COLD in them thar hills!!!

If your going to stay for awhile bring a book. We camped at Groton Forest Road Campground in a Truck Camper.

Tri-State RV Park, Matamoras, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $41.00
Overall Rating:

We were tired and it was getting late. The lady was friendly and took me to our site. It looked like most lots were taken up by construction workers. You're next to I-81 and it was noisy. There was trash and many sites had water leaking. Power post were leaning and electrical box was broken.

We were looking for a semi level lot, water, electric and cable tv and that's what we got!

No frills park and the price could have been lower. I've seen KOA's cheaper. We camped at Tri-State RV Park in a Truck Camper.

Yellowstone Valley Inn & RV Park, Cody, Wyoming

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $63.00
Overall Rating:

I don't know if the park cleaned the showers and toilet facilities daily or not but they needed cleaning both days we were there. The park is just gravel, no trees but lots of room between campsites.
Some campers left things behind and 2 days later they were still there. Someone really needs to checks the sites after campers leave. We camped at Yellowstone Valley Inn & RV Park in a Truck Camper.

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

The park was quiet and the manager was a peach. If I'm not there pick a spot we'll handle the money later. she said.
The town is really neat and there was a concert the night we pulled in.
The deposit for the remote control ($30) was more than the lot rent.
Very close to Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse and The Buffalo Ranch.
Take some time and explore the city. We camped at French Creek RV Campground in a Truck Camper.

The Virginian Lodge RV Resort, Jackson, Wyoming

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $93.00
Overall Rating:

I pulled into the park exhausted, couldn't drive another mile.

The price was ridiculous for one night, but I needed power for my refridgerator and CPAP machine.

I complained but the guy said, hey this is Jackson Hole!

The site was small, water was dripping, electrical outlet was partially broken but was useable. Cable channels were fuzzy. The park was noisy from the traffic from the apartments behind us.

If you can find another place to go to I would suggest you try somewhere else. Somewhere where they appreciate your business. We camped at The Virginian Lodge RV Resort in a Truck Camper.

I pulled in right before a bad storm.The Park Owner ask me if I wanted cable I said yes and she handed me a cable tv box and remote without giving her a deposit fee. Every other place wanted a high dollar deposit fee.
