Benchmark RV Park, Meridian, Mississippi

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $18.00
Overall Rating:      

Great small park for an overnight, close to the highway, easy to navigate, big rig friendly pull-throughs. We didn't try their cable but they said it was Direct TV, so it should be good. The internet was not usable at all. I would have rated them higher if they had usable internet. Passport rate made it a good alternative to a Wal-Mart overnight. With tax we paid $20 CASH. We camped at Benchmark RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Emerald Pointe RV Resort, Zephyrhills, Florida

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

Emerald Pointe is an IMMACULATE park that caters to snow birds and full timers. You won't find a neater, cleaner, more well run park. All lots have large concrete pads for both RV and patio. Most include a shed, Lanai or port. Lots of activities and amenities available. Privately owned RV lots and park models are available to rent (by the month) or purchase. Nightly rate was quoted, based on approximate monthly rate. Excellent park to spend the winter! Free WiFi is provided only at the clubhouse but unlimited high speed is available from two local providers. We camped at Emerald Pointe RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Riverbend Campground, Hiawassee, Georgia

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $34.00
Overall Rating:      

I would have given the park a 10 if their WiFi was decent. They appear to have plenty of repeaters so you can always get on their network, but their bandwidth is insufficient so internet access is SLOW, SLOW, SLOW or sometimes non-usable. You are given an access code for your device and each rig may request 3 codes.

The sites are very spacious, very long and nicely spaced between each other. Most are back-ins, but are correctly angled for easy access. Most sites have a pleasant view out the back, without another rig "in your face". Their brand new section contains just a few pull thru sites. They have a small indoor meeting room for groups to use and also a picnic pavilion.

We would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Riverbend Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

The park is about 20 miles from Helen, GA although the road to get there is windy, hilly, with lots of switchbacks.

There's a very nice Ingles grocery store in town and Hiawassee Hardware "has everything" from housewares to hardware. The nearest Wal-Mart is in Blairsville, about 20 miles away.

Tiki RV Park & Campground, Saint Ignace, Michigan

Date of Stay: June, 2015 - $22.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a well located park to explore St. Ignace and take the ferry to Mackinac Island. It is not "manicured", but comfortable. Some sites are without trees, some have lots of trees. They just had a new WiFi upgrade and it worked quite well if you were parked near the house.

The office worker (owner?) was extremely pleasant and helpful concerning the local area. Cable was good.

$22 rate was for a 50 amp, pull through with Passport America discount. We would definitely camp here again at this price if in the area. Mosquitoes were horrible everywhere (not just this campground). Regular "biting" mosquitoes were rampant in the campground and midges were even worse near the ferry area. We camped at Tiki RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Cecil DePeau Bay Shore Park Campground, Green Bay, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: June, 2015 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

Lovely, serene setting with mostly level sites, but an older campground created when RVs were much smaller. Not "big rig" friendly at all. Roads are narrow with lots of overhanging branches that make navigation in a large RV very difficult. No sewer or 50 amp service. Not all sites have even 30 amp service. Summer weekends are Very busy. Checkout time is 3:00. If you have a big rig, you might as well wait til Sunday at 3:00 to come in to find one of a few spots that you can navigate to and use.

Sadly, they do not take reservations. Weekends fill up fast. Campground choices near Green Bay are extremely limited, so we have camped there due to no better choice. We camped at Cecil DePeau Bay Shore Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Rideau Acres Campground, Kingston, Ontario

Date of Stay: June, 2015 - $54.00
Overall Rating:      

This was our first stay at a Canadian park. They had no cable and Wi-Fi was available only at their store. The sites are nicely sized, but just grass and gravel. The park is definitely "Big Rig" friendly.

The park is very large and borders a lake, but very few sites have view of it. Perhaps if your plans include lake usage their fee would be justified, but I found them quite high considering no Wi-Fi or cable available. With the high Canadian tax, our site was about $60 a night.

They do have a great building to accommodate large group functions, so it was good for our group camp-out. I would not choose this park for a private stay due to the lack of Wi-Fi. We camped at Rideau Acres Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Staunton / Walnut Hills KOA, Staunton, Virginia

Date of Stay: May, 2015 - $44.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a lovely "destination" campground that is family oriented as most KOAs are. If you are wanting a "big rig" pull-thru site for an overnight stay, there are only a few on the left as you first enter the campground. Those sites fill up quickly, so call ahead to reserve one.

WiFi was poor. You are assigned two logins and they cannot be switched to another of your devices. So if you login with your phone and then want to switch that login to your tablet or laptop, you cannot do it. Once the login has been used, it's dead.

Pricing was extremely high for an overnight, but it was the only park in the area that the other reviewers on RVParkReviews suggested would be good for big rigs.

There was a storm threatening to hit the area, so we "bit the bullet" and paid the price but I would not under normal circumstances. This is not a resort or "big attraction" area that might justify the high price. We camped at Staunton / Walnut Hills KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Flory's Cottages & Camping, Ronks, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: May, 2015 - $48.00
Overall Rating:      

The roads are difficult to navigate once the park is full. The spaces are very tight. We had to move our truck several times so a motorhome could get past our site. Another motorhome was being led in by the owner and scraped the side of his rig with a basketball hoop. If we had wanted to leave before most other people left on the weekend, we would have had to asked several others to move their truck so we could get our rig out.

Since the sites are small and tight, there was not adequate parking for the tow vehicle. No "true" pull through sites. The first one gets to pull through, the second one gets backed right up to them.

WiFi had inadequate bandwidth for the number of rigs in the park. In the wee hours when most were asleep, it worked OK. On days when few rigs were there, it worked OK. When the park fills up, the WiFi is almost unusable and that was extremely frustrating. You are given individual logins, up to 3. So if you have more devices (laptops, tablets, phones), you can't use them. I believe a sign said that you can add them for $2 a day.

The owners were very nice and pleasant to work with. However, that did not change the physical constraints of the park or the poor WiFi.

Cable is an extra $5 per night and is not digital. There's an extra charge to run your air and use the WiFi if you are not staying for a week.

The location was very convenient to explore the Amish Countryside but this would not be my first choice to stay again due to the poor WiFi and the tight spaces. We camped at Flory's Cottages & Camping in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Be sure to visit the "Amish Experience" if you are interested in the Amish Culture. See the film, the Amish house and school, and take the tour shuttle. All 3 are about $42 combined and they threw in a free buggy ride. This should be first on your agenda to get a good understanding of the Amish culture before you tour the area.
