Anchor Down RV Resort, Dandridge, Tennessee

Date of Stay: November, 2016 - $62.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a new and pristine RV park on the shore of Lake George. The park is immaculate and I do mean that sincerely. As in WoW! We stayed in a premium waterfront back-in site with a fire ring. If you choose a site with a "fireplace," expect a custom hearth etc.; each one is a bit different. Nice but we like the fire ring built into the patio.

They spent a lot of money and worked hard to terrace the park down from the hilltop to reasonable level above the waterline. If you are concerned about watersports, swimming, boating, you should check the Lake George web site for seasonal water levels. The water level fluctuates by as much as 50 feet and, based on the most recent three years, it is high and usable during the summer months but low and not accessible from the park during the winter months. We planned to kayak but I simply cannot carry two kayaks up and down that long ramp.

The roads are asphalt, the pads are concrete, the space between sites is gravel. The sites are level. The views are fantastic with the water and the Smoky Mountains in the distance.

The only area with trees are sites 1-29 and 30-36 and those are just on the ends of the sites. If you are a back unit like us, sites 20-29 are on the top of the hill with a great view but you do also overlook the rest of the campground. Sites 81-124 are on the same level so you will not have the same great views.

We have not heard of "buddy sites" before but they have them here. The idea is to park on pull-in and one back-in side by side. Your patios face each other and you typically share a fire ring or fireplace. Nice if you have a buddy.

The location is a 20 minute drive to Pigeon Forge and about an hour to the visitor center for Great Smoky Mountain National Park.

The bath house, dog park, and courts are nice but not conveniently located.

The staff were friendly and professional.

Folks this isn't cheap but it is very nice. We will stay here again!! We camped at Anchor Down RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

We went to "The Diner" in Sivierville for the Elk Burger. It was ok but didn't wow me. Suggest going to a show in Pigeon Forge and definitely go to the National Park.

If you like to hike, there is nothing in the RV park but you can get your exercise walking up and down the hills in the park.

Northampton / Springfield KOA, Westhampton, Massachusetts

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $47.00
Overall Rating:      

This was an unplanned stop due to mechanical problems. The site was very kind and very flexible as we did not know from day-to-day if we were staying or leaving. Ended up spending three nights. You are surrounded by hills which were also showing fall colors; nice.

This is an older park that, I suspect, was recently brought into the KOA family. The sites in the back behind the first row of cabins are the older sites and are almost all dirt pads located amongst many trees.

Those sites around the cabins and out front near the office are all newer and are all very level gravel base. The seven or so pull through sites up front are great sites but just a little bit too close for our liking. However, at this time of year, it wasn't a problem. These sites are wide open, no trees.

The park is near a farm with lots of cows and when the wind is just right...which sometimes it is...well you know. We camped at Northampton / Springfield KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Lamb City Campground, Phillipston, Massachusetts

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $29.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a huge family owned RV park that is at least 90% seasonal. If you are a short time stay, you will be in the center section of the area referred to as "Safari Field." The center section is for us and the outsides are seasonal campers. No so unusual for this area of the country.

The access was paved and or gravel. The back-in sites in Safari Field are very spacious from side-to-side with full hookup and cable TV. This is an open with grass and gravel sites and some nicely spaced trees. You won't have a problem with using your satellite. We were going to hook up to cable but found our connection to be quite corroded and didn't bother trying to get it repaired.

We arrived on the day the park officially closed for the season and they allowed us to stay for a full week. We filled up the tanks with water just in case we had a freeze.

The park is old but beautiful if you like nature, trees, birds, etc. Nice and quiet while we were here. The fall colors were fantastic. We camped at Lamb City Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Take the park hike around the lake and the big apple trail over the hill/mountain. Very beautiful. NOTE: You are in bear country and we did see poo on the trail.

Go to Doan's Falls and Tully Lake. Boat launch or kayak launch.

Just get outside and enjoy this beautiful area. Lots of state parks, lakes, rivers, forests. Have fun; we did!!

Narrows Too Camping Resort - Thousand Trails, Trenton, Maine

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $84.00
Overall Rating:      

Ok folks, Maine in the fall. Why are you here? The free trollies stops out in front of the park so you don't have to have a driving vehicle.

This is an Encore RV Resorts community and is located near the bridge leading to Mount Desert Island (MDI). The park is quite large with a variety of site types. Please note that some have hookups on left and some on the right. If it matters to you and you cannot cross your connections be sure you know what you are asking for.

Other reviewers have talked about the gravel road and dust. Yes, true, get over it. It is much better than dirt roads and potholes.

The waterfront sites are mixed with hookups; see above. The 300 series sites are fantastic with some sort of tree/wind break for a bit of privacy between sites. All will accommodate a 40-45 foot fifth wheel or class A but those class As have to work hard to get in if the site across the street is occupied.

NOTE: The 400 series sites on the water are tight. They tell you that so it should not be a surprise. Yes, you can get in and open slides but you are not going to put out awnings if they are mounted on or extend beyond your slides.

Waterfront premium cost premium $$$. Worth it to us but maybe not to you. Lots of other site options that don't cost so much.

Well maintained, great staff, I'd come here again for sure.

We enjoyed every hike we went on. If you are mature like us, pick up the guide for "Easy Day Hikes" and you will find plenty to enjoy. We have been here two weeks with one more to go. Love it. We camped at Narrows Too Camping Resort - Thousand Trails in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

We enjoy seafood and nature and there was plenty of that here for us.

We did the bioluminescent kayak paddle in Castine. That was fun.

Pick a lobster pound it really doesn't matter. They all serve lobster. The lobster is boiled. It isn't a complicated recipe and they all charged $8.99-$9.99 a pound UNLESS you are in Bar Harbor. Everything is more expensive in Bar Harbor.

Bull Run Regional Park, Centreville, Virginia

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $45.00
Overall Rating:      

We just love this park! This is our second stay and we reserved the first two weeks of April 2017 hoping to see the Blue Bells. The park is convenient to the highway and to public transit into Washington DC.

Park roads are good to excellent with just a few potholes.

Full hookup sites are all on one road. NOTE: The hookups for some sites are on the wrong side or at the rear of the site. Suggest you call ahead and discuss if this is important to you.

The park is perfect for those who enjoy nature. Woods, flowers, trails, trees, wildlife. What's not to love!? Sites are spacious and the park is enjoyed by those in RVs of all sizes as well as tents.

We saw deer several times in the park and on the trails. We were also ther as Paw Paws ripened and were able to enjoy them as a snack during our hike.

Please beware of Rocky Raccoon. This masked bandit removed our suet feeder and hanger from a tree and hauled it off to his own home. Rocky returned two days later hoping for an encore but, on encountering humans, fled up a tree. We camped at Bull Run Regional Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Pine Valley Campground, Endicott, New York

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

So we ended up here quit by accident. The campground we reserved was really in the woods and had no cell service. I work from the road so I must have cell.

The park is family run and in a beautiful location. Owners were quite nice.

However, you really have to want to go here as it is not exceptionally convenient. Do NOT go up RT 26 if you are in a big-rig as there is a railroad trestle with just 12.5 feet of clearance. Call them for directions.

Large site, beautiful lake, big fish, great trail, beautiful flowers.

Sites were not exceptionally roomy but there were not many people during our visit so it wasn't an issue.

Sites are grass. Our rig is 21000 pounds and we did sink in just a bit but not a problem.

Once you arrive, you will really enjoy! We camped at Pine Valley Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Yogi Bear's Jellystone Paradise Pines Camping Resort, North Hudson, New York

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $51.00
Overall Rating:      

Nice park nestled in amongst huge Hemlock trees. We were the only campers for two of our three nights. Staff were friendly. Access to the park and the site was ok. However, we really are a big-rig and the trees need trimming. We mentioned this to staff as we were leaving but not sure they took the request to heart.

This was our first experience with Yogi. It is definitely geared for campers with small children. If that is you this place would be great as they have plenty of activities for children...in season.

For us, I would not want to be here in peak season. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Paradise Pines Camping Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Beautiful and well-maintained park in a great location. They have worked hard to give campers space and privacy. Roads were well-maintained and all trees and shrubs were nicely trimmed so as not to interfere with big-rig travel. We camped at Mountain Lake Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

The Villages RV Park at Turning Stone, Verona, New York

Date of Stay: June, 2015 - $55.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a ten-rated community at both Good Sam and Woodalls for a reason. The place is immaculately maintained and operated. The facility is beautifully landscaped and has a variety of "community" site areas catering to different size campers and needs.

The roads are very well paved and each site has full hookup including an individual trash container. We are a large rig on an 8.5 foot frame with four slides and large awnings. I found that the access roads, though nicely paved, were not quite wide enough for easy pull through parking. I did have to enter, back, and re-enter. We know they want to put as many people on the facility as possible but we'd appreciate a bit more room between us and our neighbors.

We arrived in the rain, slept in the rain, and departed in the rain. Gloomy.

This park is very convenient to the interstate.

We would definitely stay here again. We camped at The Villages RV Park at Turning Stone in a Fifth Wheel.

Steven C. Foster State Park, Fargo, Georgia

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

Campsites for big rigs are limited to the pull-thru road and two sites on loop 1. Loop 1 is hard to navigate with overhanging branches and trees too close to the road. Once in, we loved spot 26. Restrooms were not well kept and were in need of repair. Camp host was friendly but didn't appear to do much for the facility.

The premium site on loop 2 is 30 amp. 2 pull through sites on loop 1 but navigation on narrow, winding, well treed road was a challenge. Site 13 on loop 1 is also pull thru with doors side to road. Site 26 was fantastic. Would NOT recommend anything longer than 40ft on the loops; stick to the pull thru road.

If you love the outdoors like we do and you love nature, this is a perfect spot. Boating, fishing, hiking, critters. Lovely!! We camped at Steven C. Foster State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Reed Bingham State Park, Adel, Georgia

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

This is one of only two parks in the Georgia system that offer full hookup. The park is situated on the Little River and is a beautiful place to stay for those who love the outdoors. There are essentially two camping loops with well-maintained paved roads. Loop A is primarily 30 amp for smaller campers and tents and loop B is all 50 amp intended for larger rigs but...we did see a few tent campers.

The restrooms are either new or recently remodeled. They were simply spotless. The work campers were friendly, attentive, and cared about the job they were doing including repainting all picnic tables.

You have ready access to kayak, canoe, and john boats (no motors) for use on the Little River. This park has huge picnic shelters and a nice sandy beach. We also noted that they have seasonal gatherings like an arts and crafts fair during which occupancy surges.

This is definitely a park that we will visit again and would most assuredly stay longer when our travel plans allow. For us, this is a "fav." We camped at Reed Bingham State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Occupancy surges on weekends and reservations are not site-specific. You would do well to arrive Mon-Thursday. Big rigs and those who need 50 amp service need to stay in the Loop 2. Take the time, rent a kayak. Do NOT feed the gators.
