Big Meadows Campground (NPS Campground), Shenandoah National Park, Virginia

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

Top notch national park. Great campground. We 'dry camped' and only stayed one night. The hiking trails are great. The AT runs right through the park. Sky Line Drive is challenging for a big coach and a toad but certainly manageable. We camped at Big Meadows Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Pleasant View Recreation , Van Buren, Ohio

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $44.00
Overall Rating:      

With the exception of the pool (new in June 2016) the pictures on the website are bordering on fraudulent. They are certainly misleading. Pretty much everything was in disrepair. The mini-golf was a so broken down as to be unusable, the bounce pillow wasn't working. The 'pond' disgusting. This place is in the middle of a corn field...nothing for the kids to do outside of the park. Our site was basically just a dirt/gravel lot and it was very very small. The 'transient' sites are off on the side near the dumpsters (but close to the pool) With the terrain and the sewer pipe extension, our coach wouldn't drain...even with the jacks fully extended. This place is probably 95% seasonal. You can tell that it used to be a KOA and was probably pretty nice once upon a time...but not any more. We were supposed to stay 3 nights but we left after just one. The staff wasn't around when we left at 10AM so we left a note and then a VM. I'm skeptical that we'll get a refund. We camped at Pleasant View Recreation in a Motorhome.

Ocean Lakes Family Campground, Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

Date of Stay: April, 2015 - $51.00
Overall Rating:      

Nice place. This is our first experience at a 'Mega Park' so we didn't know what to expect. This place is HUGE! Heck, this place might even be big enough to have it's own zipcode. It's definitely a full service place, you'd never have to leave. We came early in April so some of the facilities weren't fully operating which is to be expected. I expect this place is crazy busy in the middle of summer. There are some other comments here about security but in our 4 night stay, I can say that security was very good. Great place, we'll certainly be back. We camped at Ocean Lakes Family Campground in a Motorhome.

Natural Bridge / Lexington KOA, Natural Bridge, Virginia

Date of Stay: April, 2015 - $49.00
Overall Rating:      

We really liked this park. We stayed here for two nights with our kids (9 & 5) and they had a good time at the playground and basketball courts. The pool was closed but in fairness, it was early in April so it was probably too cold. The sites are on the smaller side but not cramped. Our 35' class A fit just fine. The staff is very nice. As I recall, the owners have been there for just a couple of years and have made some significant improvements during their short ownership tenure. There's plenty to do at the 'Natural Bridge' and the 'Safari Park'. If you have a toad, the short drive into Lexington is worth it. Given it's super convenient location right off of I-81, we'll definitely stop here again. We camped at Natural Bridge / Lexington KOA in a Motorhome.

Strawberry Park, Preston, Connecticut

Date of Stay: October, 2014 - $75.00
Overall Rating:      

Nice park. Plenty of stuff for the the kids. They do a good job organizing activities. We stayed here over one of the 'Halloween' weekends in October. The sites are tightly packed but nice. Wifi is free for one hour a day. It's fee based after that. There is a huge number of mobile home sites here. I would think of this place more of a mobile home park with some RV and camping spots. With that said, everything is very well kept. We will likely stay here again. We camped at Strawberry Park in a Motorhome.

Twin Grove RV Resort & Cottages, Pine Grove, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: July, 2014 - $34.00
Overall Rating:      

We really like this park. It has a little bit of everything and it's quite new and well maintained. They appear to be expanding a quite large section of the park. There were bulldozer's clearing the land. There's a small amusement park right next to the campground is a nice touch. The restaurant/bar onsite is really nice too. We haven't seen much commentary of the dog park(s)...they're huge! This would be the perfect park for our family if it had a bike park. Our boys (8 & 5) would love it! We camped at Twin Grove RV Resort & Cottages in a Motorhome.

Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park Camp-Resort, Emporia, Virginia

Date of Stay: July, 2014 - $43.00
Overall Rating:      

This park is all about expectations. If you're looking for a 'kid-mania' Jellystone park like Luray, this is NOT it. We feel it's a bit on the expensive side for what we got. With that said, it's a well maintained park but it's an older park. It looks like it's caught in a late 60's early 70's time warp. Kind of a throw back but a very nice throwback. There are quite a few permanent residents that have the best spots in the woods and they put the short-term visitors in the open sunny spots. The pool is great but the playground is dated. They have a large bounce pad for an extra charge although they waived the charge for us.. The Mini-golf is an extra charge as well. The wi-fi is terrible. As others have commented, the worst part is the trains. They come at all hours of day and night. There was one at 3:15AM blowing it's horn. Overall a nice quiet park but not the typical Jellystone that we've seen before...and for some that's not a bad thing. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park Camp-Resort in a Motorhome.

Lakeview RV Park, Bluff City, Tennessee

Date of Stay: July, 2014 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

Above average park but no shade at all. It's pretty much just a multi-tier elevation parking lot with some grass strips in between the gravel lots. Wi-Fi is great and staff is great. The flea market across the street is HUGE! If you like that sort of thing it's well worth the stop. We've stayed here twice and we met some fantastic people with some world class BBQ just a few minutes away. We'll definitely try to get back during racing season to experience all of Bristol. We camped at Lakeview RV Park in a Motorhome.

Paradise Lake and Campground, Keeling, Virginia

Date of Stay: July, 2014 - $39.00
Overall Rating:      

Good, not great. The staff is fantastic...very friendly and quick to assist. We had a nice conversation with the owner, and he has made quite a few improvements since he took over in 2010. However, there is still quite a bit of room to improve. The pool is very small and they offer day passes to non-campers, which causes it to be even more crowded. The water pressure was pretty low (site #2). The sites are small but offer some really nice shade and a woodsy 'rustic' feel. The lake is wonderful, with ample paddle boat rentals and decent fishing spots all around. But there's no swimming in the lake, which was a bit of a drag. There wasn't any trash pickup at the site and it was quite a walk to the dumpster. The playgrounds are small and run down. Overall it was fun if you like a more rustic experience but if you're used to a more 'upscale' feel this isn't the place. We camped at Paradise Lake and Campground in a Motorhome.
