Richmond North / Kings Dominion KOA, Doswell, Virginia

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $50.00
Overall Rating:

This is a true 'campground' for those who love to be close to their neighbors. While there are some 'rv park' type sites for longer motorcoach vehicles, with pull thrus, most of the sites are for tenting, pop-ups, and shorter back-ins. Trees shade most of the park, which is nice during the hot summer months for most campers. It's pricey, but convenient to Kings Dominion, and a free shuttle runs every few minutes. While other parks might be a lower cost, and less folks close by, the convenience of leaving the car at the campground trumped. The shuttle also allowed us to let the teens come and go to the rides when they so chose, not something that we could have done at a park 10 miles away.

Our site was short, but my 17 wheelbase made it acceptable, though it was wet and muddy right outside our door because of recent rains. The site on our driver side was never used, which was actually nice for us, since it was so muddy on the door side that no one would accept it for the money they were being charged.
Wifi was easy to attach to, but was only clocked at 1 to 1 1/2 mbps, not so great, but doable.
While the main 'streets' are mostly asphalt, ours had a severe turn near the end, and many trees had limbs encroaching the height of a class a or fifth wheel.
During the summer months, especially weekends, this place is packed - kids and parents walking and biking all over, dogs being walked constantly, and RVs of all sorts coming and going. This is not an 'rv park' for those of us who are looking for an overnight stay.
The facilities, overall, are acceptable, and probably fun for those weekenders and vacationers looking for that 'camping' experience with their neighbors. We camped at Richmond North / Kings Dominion KOA in a Motorhome.

Zooland Family Campground, Asheboro, North Carolina

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $17.00
Overall Rating:

This park is in a rural area down a winding road, with a very tight driveway - I'm not sure how two RVs might be able to pass each other if one were coming in while another one is leaving.

If the temperature agrees, this is a very nice campground, or rv park, with enough sites to spread everyone out, yet allow for group camping if one desires. Some sites are tenting, some 30/20a without sewer, and most 50/30/20a with sewer and pull through - all adequately spaced, though some will have trees within the site or to navigate around to get in/out.
For check-in, I like to ask a park to allow me to pick my own site - for various good reasons: shade, satellite view, proximity to others, length/width of site, easy in/out, etc. By asking politely, good parks like this will usually allow it, though it's a little like pulling their arm to get them to understand why you value this as much as they value assigning sites themselves, which works best for parks, but not necessarily for customers. (there was no lack of plenty of available sites to choose from the several days we were there)
This is a great park if you need a few days to relax and swim, in a rural setting with very little road noise or distractions. We camped at Zooland Family Campground in a Motorhome.

Warriors Path State Park, Kingsport, Tennessee

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

This shady park provides tenting sites, mostly shorter sites, and a few longer sites, with most back-in type, though we pulled in to ours since it gave us the best view, best shade, and easy in and out.
Sites are assigned, and reservable, though we showed up without reservation, and were even allowed to choose our own site before registering, nice.
There are also two different dump stations, one at the entrance, and another at the far back of the park, with plenty of space.
I noticed some 'one way' signs, but saw many vehicles and rvs going the opposite way - the signage is confusing. We camped at Warriors Path State Park in a Motorhome.

Walmar Manor Campground, Dillsburg, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $19.00
Overall Rating:

nice little rv park, off the beaten path, but a good value, especially if a PassportAmerica member - easy backin sites, full hookups at most, with many 'campground' type sites also near the creek, in the woods.
good Wifi and laundry - the path through can be tight, with most vehicle parking along the path, and several partially into the path, but it's not a large park to navigate - also a nice setting for a stay in Southern Pennsylvania, near Gettysburg, Harrisburg, and Hershey. We camped at Walmar Manor Campground in a Motorhome.

Amicalola Falls State Park & Lodge, Dawsonville, Georgia

Date of Stay: May, 2016 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

WARNING: entrance to this SP campground can be extremely taxing on larger campers and motorhomes - posted 25% incline for a mile or more from the registration office. There is also a VERY tight turn at a STEEP incline within the campground...
50a and water at each of the only 24 gravel, but lengthy sites...most are built up from the side of the mountain. We camped at Amicalola Falls State Park & Lodge in a Motorhome.

Georgia Veterans Memorial State Park, Cordele, Georgia

Date of Stay: May, 2016 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

-excellent Lakeside rv park/campground with many lakeside backin sites, and others that ate backin or pullthrus
-manuvering may be difficult for some longer units since trees border the lanes, but also provide a lot of shade during the hot months
-sites are mostly gravel base, with r/r tie edges, and elec, water, cable, and free Fast wifi(some offer 50a, ours had two 30a, a first for us)
-sites are mostly adequately spaced, though some have curiously close 'picnic' areas right into the neighboring site, strange.
-Overall a good place, if the weather is tempered(mostly hot and humid July and August especially) We camped at Georgia Veterans Memorial State Park in a Motorhome.

Georgia Mountain Fair Campground, Hiawassee, Georgia

Date of Stay: May, 2016 - $27.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed this time at the 'second' section of campsites, across the road from the main fairgrounds park. While there is no sewer for each site, the waterside/lakeside option is wonderful as you within feet of the water, and each site has access to 20/30/50 amp service, water, 60+ Cable channels, and nice Wifi that works well.

The park is a little difficult to manuver with longer vehicles, and the sites can be a little hard to back into, but it's worth the effort. Some sites are short, others are very deep. Some sites are very narrow, with drop offs to the water, while others are wide and expansive. Most of the sites have plenty of shade, for most of the day, but this could also make for difficult satellite reception, if required, unless you are on the SW facing shorelines.

This time of year there are few campers and few nearby, but I can imagine that in the summer months, and during the fairground events in the fall, that it could get noisy, with many campers a little too close for comfort. We camped at Georgia Mountain Fair Campground in a Motorhome.

First Landing State Park, Virginia Beach, Virginia

Date of Stay: April, 2016 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

This park campground is situated right on the beach and is a great experience - very few folks on the beach compared to hotels and resorts. Make reservations soon because it fills fast. This park has both site-specific reserved areas, and first-come first-serve areas, meaning that you can reserve a site, but you pick from the ones available when you arrive.

This park also uses a 20'/30'/50' reservation size protocol, meaning that they give you a site based on your rig/camper LENGTH, not the size of the electrical amperage you need, which might be confusing since most sites have 20/30/50 amp service!

Some of the sites are open and have no shade, and others are WELL shaded, maybe too much. The routes in and out of the campground can also be a little daunting to larger motorhomes, especially those 40' or more.

Showers, bathrooms, and water fountains were all good. Each site has water and electric, but no sewer. Wi-Fi is available at the office only. There are also several boardwalks to the beach. We camped at First Landing State Park in a Motorhome.

Long Ridge Campground, Hiawassee, Georgia

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

When you finally find this 'hidden' gem, you'll be glad you did. The route into the campground is a little tight and unnerving in your rv if you're never been to it, especially the tight rural road that's partly a single lane, but, it's worth it.

There are several backin 'rv park' style gravel sites up front, and many 'campground' style backin sites under the trees, near the woods, and around the pond. All seem to be well designed and roomy.

Plan to stay here a while, it's away from traffic, near nature, with a pond and large stream near everyone. We camped at Long Ridge Campground in a Motorhome.

Appalachian Campground, Hiawassee, Georgia

Date of Stay: April, 2016 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

Other than a few pull thrus, this is a backin type park, but each backs up to a small creek, but all are also across from a sometimes very busy and loud road, especially motorcycles and sportcars at certain times of the year.

Most sites are 30a with a very few 50a, as the park is only for 15 or so sites.

The park though is somewhat centrally located between Helen and Hiawassee, both worth visiting. The mountains passes between the two, though, can be fun to some, and terrifying to others. The road is fairly tight with many twists and hard mountain side turns. Fun. We camped at Appalachian Campground in a Motorhome.
