Campers Haven RV Resort, Dennis Port, Massachusetts

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $55.00
Overall Rating:      

This campground has 275 very crowded sites with only 9 for transients. The others are permanent seasonal sites, connected with many narrow, twisting roads, really tight for our 36' coach. We had trouble following the map because we couldn't find street names. I hate to think how crowded it must be with all the seasonal campers there. Check-in was seamless except that the power didn't work, but they fixed it right away. WiFi worked well. On the other hand, cable was disappointing. They gave us a list of 100 channels, with the statement "we don't work on TVs." Maybe that's because there are really only about 14 channels, most of them grainy. But the really weird thing was that although they list "sewer" on their website and it is listed on this site, when we were checking in, they told us the sewer was only for gray water. We couldn't use it for black water. WHAT??? In decades of camping, we have never run into this. Maybe it had something to do with the seasonal sites being shut down, but it was never explained. They have a dump station, but having to disconnect and move to dump is really inconvenient. Our coach blocked the road while we were dumping. The biggest plus for us was that campfires are prohibited. We can't tolerate smoke and usually have to seal ourselves up in our coach. They do have places to barbeque. We might stay here again but probably not in season. We camped at Campers Haven RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Beach Rose RV Park, Salisbury, Massachusetts

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $47.00
Overall Rating:      

Park is crowded, with sites close together and short. Barely enough room in front of the RV for our small car. Many were parked on the grass. Road is tight and parking took some back-and-forth maneuvering. Many seasonal and long-term units. Plus is concrete pads (completely level) and decent grass and picnic bench between them. Some amenities like shuffleboard, pool, etc. We just overnighted so didn't use any of them. Two fenced dog parks - one very small and one huge. Large dogs would enjoy the big one. Cable: pretty good. We camped at Beach Rose RV Park in a Motorhome.

Shelburne Camping, Shelburne, Vermont

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

Rate is for 50a power but no sewer. Park was satisfactory, pretty ordinary but fine. Site had been gravel but most of the gravel was gone. Dry, so no problems. A little crowded when all sites were full. Everything worked. Faucet was drippy but they planned to fix it over the winter. Very close to the Shelburne Museum, which is the big draw in this area. Staff was congenial and helpful. Dump station was easy to access, with propane right there as well. We were happy there. We camped at Shelburne Camping in a Motorhome.

Hoss's Campground, Long Lake, New York

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $46.00
Overall Rating:      

Campground is easy to get into and drive around. Plenty of room for our 36-footer, with toad parked in front or beside it. Anything more than about 40' would run out of room. It is at the town crossroads and traffic noise is loud, but it is mostly blocked by a bluff on one side. Staff was courteous and helpful. The entire place is dirt and sparse grass. Would be unpleasant after a big rain. Some sites have tree roots to back over in the sites. Sewer connections have no cap or connection to screw into, so leaves had fallen in and connected, it was smelly when walking by. Power connections seemed fine. Locations of connections was fine for back-in. My biggest source of unsatisfaction was lack of candor. When we called, they quoted $30 for a campsite, with 30 and 50 amp available. When we got here, 50-amp was $10 extra, and somehow when they rang it up, the price was $46. I asked if that included tax, they said there was no tax. The price was just $46. The emphasis seems to be more on the store and cabins behind it than on the campground. The store is huge and stuffed with tourist stuff. The outside is very run-down, unlike the photo on their website. The exterior decor is made from some sort of thick material that has cracked and curled. I don't usually comment on that sort of thing since it doesn't affect the camping experience, but this one was especially ugly. Frozen custard place was closed, disappointing but maybe because it was the end of the season Be warned: There is one grocery store and one tiny liquor store in town and both close somewhere around 6. ("Vicki's car is gone, I guess it's closed.") Once they are closed, the service station store at the crossroads is the only game in town, and the teenagers' hangout. There are a couple of bar-&-grills open later for adults. Not our favorite place of the trip, but the only one in Long Lake. We're not really picky but not likely to stay here again. We camped at Hoss's Campground in a Motorhome.

St. Johnsville Campsite Marina, St. Johnsville, New York

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

It is impossible to start the review of this park with anything other than the trains. If you love trains, by all means put this park onto your itinerary. Day and night. Freight and Amtrak. No fence. Keep your dogs and children contained. This is a city-owned marina and campground, with quite a few "seasonal" tenants, many of whom live so close they go home to do their laundry. Most other RVs are using it as an overnight stop-over since there doesn’t seem to be any attractions in the area. Sites are grass, with an older asphalt road making a loop around them. The climate isn't particularly wet, so the grass has a firm foundation. There are a few picnic tables. There is an older bath/restroom building, but a new building is under construction. Management is pleasant and competent. We camped at St. Johnsville Campsite Marina in a Motorhome.

Cinderella Motel & Campsite, Grand Island, New York

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $45.00
Overall Rating:      

We chose Cinderella for proximity to the Falls and cost that is reasonable for the area. It was an OK campground with somewhat varied sites. Ours was spacious, and the hookups were adequate. On-site management was hard to locate but that didn't present any real problems, and when found, they were pleasant. We are self-contained so didn't use the restroom/shower building but we didn't hear any complaints about it. This is the nearest campground to the Falls, just about a 15-minute drive, and parking there is $10 per trip. There is a toll bridge to get there, but it is inexpensive, only $1 round-trip as I recall. There were fire rings but almost no campfires in them (Yay!) and no on-site entertainment, which is no problem for us. For adults who just want to sleep, get some rest, and see the Falls, at reasonable cost, Cinderella is just fine. We camped at Cinderella Motel & Campsite in a Motorhome.

To get the full experience, we recommend taking both the Maid of the Mist boat ride and the Cave of the Winds visit. I'm a little gimpy following a broken leg and was a little apprehensive, but I had no trouble with either one. The Wednesday-through-Friday haddock Fish Fry at the Beach House Restaurant was great!

Camp Eriez Campground, Lake City, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

This is basically a 55+ community with each home consisting of a trailer or motorhome, with accessory buildings/decks/porches/garage/etc built around it, and 15 transient sites. Most of the sites are huge and shaded. When we were here, we were the only transient unit. The place is extremely quiet, which was a relief for us after a series of "family" parks. It is not geared toward children. There is an old, worn-out set of play equipment. A paved road goes back to the shore of Lake Erie, where you can peacefully enjoy the lake and watch sunsets. NOTE: They take cash or checks only. The owners/staff were very polite and accommodating. As older adults, we loved this place. I could happily live here. Roads are asphalt in excellent condition. Sites are gravel, with healthy, green grass. Each site has a fire ring and picnic table. We camped at Camp Eriez Campground in a Motorhome.

Kennedy Marina & Campground, Newell, West Virginia

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $32.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed at this park for the great view of the Ohio River, to visit the Fiesta dinnerware factory just up the road, and for a quick business side trip to Pittsburgh. (There are absolutely no Pittsburgh area campgrounds with decent reviews.) Like almost all the campgrounds in this area, it is mostly inhabited by quiet and well--behaved permanent or seasonal units, with the prime sites reserved for visiting RVers. Our site directly overlooked the river and the many pushboats and barges quietly passing by. The entire campground is grass, with ruts and connections to mark the sites. No problem. There may be mud when it is rainy, but we had great weather. There is no manager on site during the day, but she was here eating dinner and awaiting our late arrival. When we needed a power cord extension, she showed up promptly with one. And the next day she was free with information about good restaurants (there aren't many) and an alternate route to Pittsburgh. Like every campground in the region, there is no cable TV and no local stations available. Some sites have sewer, and there is a convenient dump station. There is a very small playground, but in general I would say the campground is not designed for kids. We found it to be very quiet and peaceful. This could be because school is in session - we make a point of traveling when that is the case. There is plenty of room for large rigs. We camped at Kennedy Marina & Campground in a Motorhome.

Fort Boonesborough State Park, Richmond, Kentucky

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a very pretty, pleasant campground, with much shade and comfortable space between sites. We had looked at the map and selected a site (153) on a corner, with ample space on both sides. We arrived on a Saturday, and the park was absolutely crammed with campers, with many children and some adults roaming all the roads on bicycles. It was an intense family scene. Most of the sites had multiple vehicles in addition to the camper, filling the spaces between sites. At least half the sites had campfires going, on a very hot day(!), filling the campground with thick smoke. We had to seal ourselves up in our motorhome in order to breathe. The one good thing was that the campers were reasonably quiet, with no loud music whatsoever. Sunday morning, they started pulling out, leaving absolutely no trash behind, and the place was mostly empty and clean by 2 p.m. If you want a peaceful, relatively smoke-free experience, come here Sunday through Thursday. Staff was pleasant and helpful. We camped at Fort Boonesborough State Park in a Motorhome.

The Boonesborough fort has an interesting history. It has been rebuilt and is used for reinactments, which are popular with tourists. It is a short distance from the campground, so that reinactments do not impact campers. The campground is about 15-20 miles from town, not terribly convenient for dining out.

Chester Frost Park, Hixson, Tennessee

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

I frequently travel to Chattanooga in my RV on business, and Chester Frost is my home away from home. I am happy to hear there is a reservation system in place now because it is true that it was tricky to get a spot before. In good weather, the park fills up early because it is a favorite spot for local families and fishermen. We have a favorite spot on the water that is a little farther from neighbors than most of the spots. We have no complaints about this park. We camped at Chester Frost Park in a Motorhome.

Creekwood Farm RV Park, Waynesville, North Carolina

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

We had a very nice, shaded, creekside spot. Most spots have 12 feet or so between them, some more. In mid-September, there were many empty spots. Office staff was friendly and helpful. Our only complaint was noise - mostly low-level but still annoying. A nearby sawmill ran all night. During the day, staff in gas-powered vehicles circulated almost non-stop. One morning loud old put-put mower was used to mow all the grass, including in the sites, under our windows where we were trying to nap, and we couldn't see that the grass needed any mowing at all. This was after our seasonal camper neighbor was out removing the 15 or 20 leaves from his site with a gas-powered leaf blower (please - in a shady creekside spot, you're going to have a leaf or two!) and then vacuumed his entire big rig. On days when we were out sight-seeing, this was no problem, but when we stayed in the campground to relax, it was. The creek was great - many birds in the morning, kingfishers racing up and down with their characteristic chattering. We might or might not come back. Less likely if we want to be quiet and relax. We camped at Creekwood Farm RV Park in a Motorhome.

Western Village RV Park, Carlisle, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $39.00
Overall Rating:      

I arrived after dark and there was not a single light available to find a spot. I drove around and around for at least a half hour before I was able to identify an empty spot and get into it. It was grass, and other campers were in gravel spots, but I couldn't find one of those. If you are going here, arrive before dark! I had called ahead and no mention was made of this. The park is Western themed and very kitschy, which some folks may like. Restrooms were so-so - not filthy but you would definitely want your flip-flops on. $39 seemed quite high for the condition. I actually camped here in a van. We camped at Western Village RV Park in a Truck Camper.

Overall Rating:      

This is a lovely park with many amenities. I just touched down for one night, arriving after dark. Getting there involved driving through suburban neighborhoods - my GPS was very helpful. The congenial camp host told me how to locate a spot and pay in the morning. Spots were what I would call huge. The bath house had the one-room type of restroom/shower space (see photo). It was like new and spotless. Having it cleaned at 9 a.m. was a little inconvenient but quick. The office store was nice and I bought a ball cap. Cost was $20 less a $5 senior discount even though I am a non-resident. All told a good experience. (I was in a van, not a camper type choice offered by the RV Park Reviews site.)

4 Guys RV Park, Stanton, Kentucky

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

4 Guys is a work in progress - still under development. The owners are working away on it, dumping gravel into new sites as I pulled out. They were very congenial and obviously excited about the project. They started by building a beautiful pool (photo at their website) and bath house (one of those with one-room units containing all the facilities). I hope another bath house will be coming for sites at the lower end. It's a project worth supporting and I'm sure by next season it will be much more complete. My stay here was just fine. I stayed here in a van. We camped at 4 Guys RV Park in a Truck Camper.
