About dido

Retired and live on the Oregon Coast in small village. Bucket list includes visiting as many National Parks and Monuments as possible. We travel in a stand up type teardrop trailer. It has a folding table with cushion bench seats that convert to a "short" king size bed - 2 burner cooktop - sink - hot water - 3 way frig - furnace and A/C - even a small tv with cable hookup and dvd player, all inside. No toilet or shower so we rely on being close to rv park's restroom/shower facility.

Elkhorn Campground, Frankfort, Kentucky

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $37.00
Overall Rating:      

We camp in a Little Rig "Tear Drop" style RV only 15' long w/o toilet or shower. Plus we like to eat outdoors using the picnic table and set up our dining canopy for sun and weather protection, and thus rely on condition of campgrounds facilities and being nearby our site. So our critique is focused in that area.

We did get close to the restroom/shower building: across the roadway from our site#12. The building was newly built with modern fixtures. Restrooms and showers are all in same large room separated by stalls with communal sink area in the open. Showers are full tiled floors and walls, with ample hooks and adjacent changing area with portable stool, in a private stall. Missing is a rubber floor mat as you exit the shower that would keep your feet off the wet floor. At the communal sink area, missing are convenience items like paper towels that could be used to help clean up after use. Very messy and also need hooks between the mirrors for your hand towels and small shelves for your toiletries stuff.

Over all the camp was well groomed and tidy, with all level sites, a sparkling swimming pool, mini golf, kid's playground etc. Our site was a W&E only but the camp had a nice dump station adjacent to the restroom/shower building. The roadways are paved as are some sites, while others were gravel and grass mixed. There is some grass covered greenspace between sites, not as tight or crowded as a KOA for example, but still narrow. Some sites like ours, were in the hot sun with no tress for shade, while others had ample shade. It rained heavy during our stay for about 2 hours and our site had poor drainage leaving muddy pools of standing water although the sun helped to dry it up somewhat. This was an overnight stay camp for us. For others it might a destination because of activities and the fishing in the river that backs the camp. We camped at Elkhorn Campground in a Travel Trailer.

A hidden gem off the beaten path - but worth it Most recent stay was July 6th 2017. We camp in a Little Rig "Tear Drop" style RV only 15' long w/o toilet or shower ~ plus we like to eat outdoors using the picnic table and set up our dining canopy for sun and weather protection and thus rely on condition of campgrounds facilities and being nearby our site ~ so our critique is focused in that area. This was an overnight stop for us; a little difficult to reach due to hwy 307 off I-64 is very hilly with sharp curves but after reaching the park, it didn't matter. Campground toward back of park-up another hill and winding road. Check in at top of hill. Some grassy/graveled sites are scattered on a hillside, and a challenge to reach while others are lower down in the flat valley. The restroom/shower building is perched on top of the hill and not immediately adjacent to most accessible sites and ours was in the flat valley so not close to it as we would have liked. That being said, this was a government operated park a building with painted cement block walls and cement floors albeit the building was newer and modern - it was nice. It was roomy inside with ample # of sinks and shower stalls. Each stall had rubber floor mat in the shower, but it have been better if they had been in the adjacent changing area when you exit shower. Water was hot and pressure good. Bench in changing area was nice convenience, but only 1 hook for towels and clothes so needed more. The communal sink area was spacious and had ample # of sinks - and a nice convenience was the paper towels so you could tidy up after using the sinks. Missing were hooks between the mirrors a convenience for your hand towel. The campground overall was well maintained and groomed with nice large and level sites on the flat valley covered with mixture of grass and gravel included water and electric with nice dump station as you exit the park. We camped at Little Beaver State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Base Camp near Historic Triangle Jamestown/Williamsburg/Yorktown Most recent stay was July 2nd thru July 5th 2017 We camp in a Little Rig "Tear Drop" style RV only 15' long w/o toilet or shower ~ plus we like to eat outdoors using the picnic table and set up our dining canopy for sun and weather protection and thus rely on condition of campgrounds facilities and being nearby our site ~ so our critique is focused in that area. Yes we did get close to the restroom/shower building an older/dated facility showing its age, needing a little updating. Shower stall area had communal changing/drying off area with a long bench, plus hooks and cubby hole shelves for your stuff; all nice conveniences. Shower stalls were separated with a shower curtain, but a convenience item would be to add rubber floor mats to keep feet off wet floor during dry off time. Communal sink area was messy and also needed paper towels that could be used to wipe down area after each use, also needed hooks for hand towels and small shelves for toiletries This is a government [county] operated park and over all the grounds was well groomed. Interior roadways were asphalt and sites were grass mixed with gravel. However, they were in need of maintenance like new asphalt to fill pot holes in roadway and gravel to cover dirt in sites. It rained during our stay and site was muddy and the roadway potholes filled with water [see my photos] All this resulted in unpleasant stay - questioned camp staff and was told work orders were submitted long ago but have been waiting for public officials to authorize funding and assign job to contractor. We camped at Chickahominy Riverfront Park in a Travel Trailer.

Lake Fairfax Park, Reston, Virginia

Most recent stay was June 27th thru July 1st 2017 We camp in a Little Rig "Tear Drop" style RV only 15' long w/o toilet or shower ~ plus we like to eat outdoors using the picnic table and set up our dining canopy for sun and weather protection and thus rely on condition of campgrounds facilities and being nearby our site ~ so our critique is focused in that area. Our site 61 was close to restroom/shower building, a modern newer facility with painted cement block walls and cement floor. Restrooms had separate entrance from showers which were large private individual rooms with a shower stall, toilet, and sink. This campground is operated and maintained by Fairfax County with a camp host on site. Cleaning of restroom/shower done every morning but appeared it was only a partial cleaning at best with hosing down the floors and maybe that's all - see my photos - was like that all 5 days of our stay. The walls were high but open ceiling with exposed rafters - I suppose for improving ventilation, but it didn't help much because there was no air movement; stuffy after the shower. Also drainage problem in all showers, leaving standing water on the floor after shower but there were no rubber mats to stand when toweling off and paper towels that could have been used to help clean up after using the sinks which remained messy. Our site W&E only was in hot sun - no shade trees - other sites had some shade but campground was fully reserved because of holiday (4th of July) and we couldn't move. Was a good base camp for taking day trips exploring Washington DC. We learned how to navigate public transportation taking Metrorail. It's highly recommend instead of driving to DC in extremely heavy traffic and then good luck trying to find a parking lot. We camped at Lake Fairfax Park in a Travel Trailer.

Don't pass this one by Most recent stay was June 23rd thru June 26th 2017 We camp in a Little Rig "Tear Drop" style RV only 15' long w/o toilet or shower ~ plus we like to eat outdoors using the picnic table and set up our dining canopy for sun and weather protection and thus rely on condition of campgrounds facilities and being nearby our site ~ so our critique is focused in that area We had reservations [recommended] got close to the restroom with flush toilets, sinks with warm water but showers [private lockable rooms] were further away; the only one in camp at the entrance. They ran out of hot water every night due to full campground; bring extra quarters - in case you can't finish in allotted time. Each shower had bench and hooks for towel and clothes but no rubber mats to keep feet dry when toweling off. Modern cheery bright rooms with full tile walls and floors. Campsite B107 was a paved dry camp [no hookups] but potable water was close by. The sites are roomy, and private with wide grassy greenspaces between neighboring sites. Had nice shade trees all around to ward off summer heat, but still somewhat sunny Big Meadow is a great location for a base camp as you explore the park [its very large] to hike the many trails - including the Appalachian Trail which runs through it and be sure to visit the several visitors centers to gather more information of things to do. Don't miss driving Skyline Drive taking advantage of pulling off the side of the road at the many overlooks and don't miss the lodge.

Better than most other KOA's Most recent stay was June 19th thru June 22nd 2017 - I'm "late" in posting my review ~ We camp in a "Tear Drop" style RV only 15' long w/o toilet or shower ~ plus we like to eat outdoors using the picnic table and set up our dining canopy for sun and weather protection and thus rely on condition of campgrounds facilities and being nearby our site ~ so our critique is focused in that area We didn't get as close to the restroom/shower building as we would have liked, but our site was more private than a lot of others. The building was roomy with ample number of stalls and sinks at the vanity area plus appeared to have been remodeled/updated with full on tile walls and floors, fixtures, and stalls. It was clean plus good ventilation with the AC during heat of summer. Nice conveniences in shower stalls with hooks for towels and clothes, shelves for toiletries, and a bench in private changing area. Only wish is for rubber floor mats to help keep feet off wet floor. Sink area had paper towels to help clean up after use (nice convenience) but wish for hooks between mirrors for hand towel Usually don't like KOA's but this one is better than most because of more spacing between sites and selection of sites due to their aesthetics, some with grass, trees, picnic table area, privacy along with the special tent sites, and the rental cabins/tiny houses, sparkling swimming pool etc. However, each site is still quite narrow even with a gravel "patio type" extension for the picnic tables. Must mention this place is somewhat hilly and could require blocking to level your rv [checkout all my photo's] and also a work in process renovating/improving various campsites; a thumbs up to the owners who show they really do care.

Modern restroom/shower building; very roomy with ample number of stalls with full tiled walls was clean and well kept. Each stall had bench in changing area and ample hooks for towels and clothes. Nice conveniences but it would be nice if there were rubber floor mats as you exit shower to keep feet off wet floor. Communal sink area had shelves for toiletries beneath each mirror but no hooks for hand towels and no paper towels for cleanup after use leaving sinks somewhat messy. Overall grounds were well cared for; grassy areas surrounded sites that were large and flat with gravel and level and good distance way from neighboring sites. Minimal vegetation between sites for privacy but time will tell. This state park gets a high rating and will return when in the area. We camped at Prophetstown State Park in a Travel Trailer.

A real bargain for great campground run by Army Corps Engineers We camp in a "Tear Drop" style RV only 15' long w/o toilet or shower ~ plus we like to eat outdoors using the picnic table and set up our dining canopy for sun and weather protection and thus rely on condition of campgrounds facilities and being nearby our site ~ so our critique is focused in that area. Was impressed with our site #48 right on the lakes edge; large flat graveled site with good picnic table and firepit + 30 amp elec and water hookup with a dump station when you exit the park. Lots of green space between sites, no crowding and quite private. The park map gives impression the restroom/shower building is nearby; however it was quite a hike up a hill on a trail behind site 53. We used the car the next time and the 2nd restroom across from site 72 - also up the hill. Restroom/shower was typical government style tiled floors and cement block painted walls; very clean with a bench and ample hooks in changing area adjacent to the shower stall + a soap dish in the shower stall. It would have been nice to have rubber floor mats as you exit shower to keep feet out of standing water when drying off and paper towels to clean up sink area which was messy after usage. Hot air dryers worked ok for your hands but that was about it. The restrooms are not well placed/located within the park, but overall the park was a good experience.

We did get close to the restroom/showers as requested; they were clean and tidy and ok - checkout my photos. Wish they had paper towels for use to clean up area around the sinks - very messy and no shelves or hooks nearby to hang towels or your stuff. Showers had floor mats when you dried off; a + so you didn't have to stand on wet floor; hooks for your towels and clothes, so overall good. The grounds were in need of cosmetic fix up. It rained and our site had no gravel to absorb water. Instead the covering was a seashell type mixture and you constantly dragged it in the RV on bottom of your feet; even had a camper mat outside but it didn't help much; terrible old picnic table. Just not a pleasing atmosphere albeit the sites were spacious and wide. I would still not return but find an alternative next time.

No road noise from I-80 a rarity for a KOA. We camp in a Little Rig "Tear Drop" style RV only 15' long w/o toilet or shower ~ plus we like to eat outdoors using the picnic table and set up our dining canopy for sun and weather protection and thus rely on condition of campgrounds facilities and being nearby our site ~ so our critique is focused in that area. We're right across the road from the restroom/showers. It's an older 50's type facility clean & neat. Shower stalls are private with glass doors and very tight 3x3 I think - so is the adjacent changing area with a little stool/bench for seating, plus rubber floor mat for feet as you exit shower; includes a couple of hooks, but would like to see shelves added for your stuff. Also need hooks and shelves at the shared sink/vanity area. Updating the place including new fixtures would do wonders. This is Wyoming after all and is more of a campground, not an RV Park per se. Gravel roadways and somewhat roomy, level mixed gravel & grass site pads with picnic table; large pull through site can accommodate Big Rigs. Some staggered back to back ~ back in sites; grounds include rental cabins and clean swimming pool, and tent sites all on flat ground. We've been here 4 time now ~ and will be back We camped at Lyman KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Mirror Lake State Park, Baraboo, Wisconsin

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

The layout of the campground is such that the restroom/shower buildings are easily accessible from your campsite, but not immediately adjacent. One restroom/shower building serves about 15 campsites. They have 2 each 2 shower stalls, sinks, and toilets. Push button/auto shut off showers so- you gotta keep pushing to get more water. We've camped here 8 seasons now [family reunion getaway occupying 7 sites] and sad this this year they removed the paper towels [only air dryers] as we used them to clean up our area around the sinks when done. Now they stay messy longer as they're cleaned only once per day. Each stall is private with locking door and large enough to use to dry off. There is 1 hook on the inside of door but now where else [wish there were more] also there is a long bench just outside of the shower stalls which is handy but no shelves for your stuff. Reasonably priced park considering it's near the tourist vacation destination area.. All campsites have gravel pads but the interior roadways are paved. Sites are very roomy with lots of vegetation between sites for privacy and all among many trees for welcomed shade during hot summer months. Some sites are dry camp others are electric only no sewer hookups, but there is a dump and potable water fill station near park entrance. Also water spigots are in every loop and is no problem getting water. We camped at Mirror Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.

NOT a resort but nice rv park for a restful stop. We camp in a Little Rig "Tear Drop" style RV only 15' long w/o toilet or shower ~ plus we like to eat outdoors using the picnic table and set up our dining canopy for sun and weather protection and thus rely on condition of campgrounds facilities and being nearby our site ~ so our critique is focused in that area. We did get close to restroom/shower [2nd row] but had to walk thru other sites to get there ~ no pathway through ~ the walk around to end of row was not convenient. This is a newer park built 2011 so everything is updated, modern, and nice. Shower/restroom building (only one) is also shared by pool guests - showers in separate rooms and private wing are very large surrounded by tall concrete walls. Each have a small bench and 2 wall hooks, but no shelves for your stuff except for wire shelf in shower for soap and shampoo ~ thank goodness for that. Rubber mats on floor but spray from shower soaks the floor. No ventilation - thought odd for new building. ~ Restrooms in separate area wing are communal - very roomy w/5 sinks and modern. But no paper towels for camper to use for clean up after use, only air dryers for hands and again no hooks or shelves for your stuff. Of course new washer/dryers ~ very nice area to do your clothes New campground all gravel roadways and pads [a few concrete] lots of grassy area but no trees - only a couple of young ones totally out in open under hot sun no shade anywhere [they need to plant lots more trees] nice swimming pool though to help cool off. All sites are well spaced far apart for privacy - not squeezed together - each with picnic table and fire ring. Wanted to use our patio mat on the grass and gravel adjacent to our rv but camp management would not allow it - upsetting. We camped at Camp Turkeyville RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

1st impression driving into park says nice! We camp in a Little Rig "Tear Drop" style RV only 15' long w/o toilet or shower ~ plus we like to eat outdoors using the picnic table and set up our dining canopy for sun and weather protection and thus rely on condition of campgrounds facilities and being nearby our site ~ so our critique is focused in that area. Park has 2 restroom/shower buildings - PROS and CONS of each. CONS: We camped close to very old outdated restroom/shower building. While set up unisex style with private separate toilet/sink/shower rooms, all were dismal not cheery looking in need of some TLC w/new fixtures and updating,.Rooms were sized ok, but had poor ventilation and steamed up quickly and no way to escape the air but open the door, then you're exposed. Showers were very small/tight w/little room to move around. Rubber mats helps to absorb the water on the floor - but still wear your clogs. PROS: is the shelves and hooks for your stuff plus a small stool for sitting [all thoughtful convenience necessities for campers] Also the newer shower/restroom building located adjacent to the pool near the entrance of the grounds is very nice All unisex rooms set up the same way but larger, more modern bright and clean. Nice if some day they tear down old building and replace with copy of newer building as described. We camped at the back end of the campground on the grass and among the trees, which was very nice roomy and quiet. No issues there at all - nice area for big rvs down to tents. Campground layout was good w/pool, good condition gavel interior roads, cabins for rent, permanent and seasonal sites too - all well kept and neat looking. Appearance of grounds get best rating shows management cares. , We camped at Streetsboro / Cleveland SE KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Park OK - Restroom/showers terrible bad need of TLC Most recent stay was 07/03/16 thru 07/06/16 /16 (I 'm late in posting my review) . We camp in a Little Rig "Tear Drop" style RV only 15' long w/o toilet or shower ~ plus we like to eat outdoors using the picnic table and set up our dining canopy for sun and weather protection and thus rely on condition of campgrounds facilities and being nearby our site so our critique is focused in that area. 1st we were close to restroom/shower/laundry building [if you want to call it that. The reason for 2-star rating] best they tear it down and start over - just terrible. Well below expected standards ~ owners / managers should use the facility for a true experience instead of their own bathroom, which I doubt looks like this. In addition to the overall poor condition there is no privacy. A communal changing area. But 2 good things. It had a couple of hooks and rubber floor mats outside the old and run down fiberglass stalls. The shower curtains were older and in need of replacement but no shelves, or bench for your stuff. The communal sink area was just as bad. It was one of the worst we've experienced after 3 years and 60,000 miles of travels camping all over the country. We were in the section nearest the playground. We camped 4 days as a base camp for finger lakes region and never saw anyone clean them. Same cigarette butts and trash on the floor we saw when we arrived and when we left. Note of interest. There is another restroom/shower facility adjacent to the pool near the park entrance which was also old and outdated but in much better shape than the one just described. We used it instead although it was a long distance from our site. Overall the campground itself is pretty nice with interior roads of gravel and sites grass/gravel mixed. All fairly level sites w/picnic table+fire ring, large & good space between other sites; some permanent seasonal sites but all well-kept not trashy. Cabins for rent too. We camped at Pinecreek Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Great base camp (suggest you use restroom/shower facilities adjacent to pool) to explore all around the Finger Lakes region and like NASCAR racing at Forest Glen

A Brand New High End RV Park Most recent stay was 07/02/16 (I 'm late in posting my review) and 1st impression is WOW! We camp in a Little Rig "Tear Drop" style RV only 15' long w/o toilet or shower ~ plus we like to eat outdoors using the picnic table and set up our dining canopy for sun and weather protection and thus rely on condition of campgrounds facilities and being nearby our site ~ so our critique is focused in that area. This definitely is an RV Park - not a campground ~ did not see any tents or dining canopies. Very new facility just completed 2nd restroom/shower facility at back of park ~ asphalt roadways, cement sidewalks and rv pads; young baby trees so no shade[yet] w/all FUH sites. Park grounds are well laid out - all sites very spacious and not crowded with decent space between neighbors We were close to restroom/shower building but was disappointed with layout for a brand new park; only 1 shower stall designed, sized and outfitted for ADA and there was a waiting line to use it. Of course all modern fixtures fiberglass shower stall, tiled floors, fresh painted walls, granite sink counter top etc. Roomy changing area with a bench for seating and rubber floor mat for feet when exit shower. No hooks or shelves for your stuff - none either at community sink area but did have paper towels to help clean up area after use. Very expensive $88.00 night but won't be back because of price ~ actually overpriced when comparing others and really out of our price range. We camped at Swan Bay Resort in a Travel Trailer.
