This a large, well-run campground a few miles off the strip. The distance from the action is probably the reason for the reasonable rates, which are about half those of parks adjacent to the strip. But if you have an itch to throw away money in the middle of the night, there's a big casino right around the corner. Roadways and sites are paved, although our site could have been more level. Security is 24 hour and the place is fenced in. Staff is very friendly. The bathhouses are clean and modern, and we were lucky enough to be near a new one consisting of 6 large, private bathrooms equipped with toilet, shower, sink, benches, etc. We stayed here once 4 years ago and enjoyed it even more this second time.
This is a quaint little park that is surprisingly comfortable and friendly. There's a $2 up charge for 50 amp service. No cable service, but they'll give you a Dish receiver and a cable to hook to your TV set. They took about an hour trying to get ours to work before giving up, but there is decent antenna reception of a few channels. Bathhouse is small, rustic, and clean. Staff is exceptionally friendly and helpful. There are a fair number of permanent/seasonal rigs here, but not a problem. Sites are gravel and more or less level. Each has a small concrete patio and picnic table. This is a good spot for an overnight in the Mojave desert.
This is a rustic RV park close to Sequoia National Park. Sites are varied, some gravel, some level, and some concrete. There's decent shade which may impact satellite reception. The cable system is very good and the WiFi is okay. The two bathrooms were flooded for two days, and we were told they were waiting for a part to fix the problem. There's a nice beach on a swimming hole in the river that runs behind the park. There is no Verizon cell service in the park.
This is a spectacular RV resort. The only reason I rate it 9 is that there are no campfire rings and not enough shade in most of the park. All sites are level concrete and extremely wide and long. Very big pool, beautiful landscaping, good cable service, and above average WiFi. Adjacent to shopping and restaurants. Close to the Highway. Staff was very accommodating. Our 5th wheel was brought here by a towing company while our broken truck was being towed to a repair shop. We had been sitting along side the interstate in 100 deg. heat for two hours before the tow arrived. The staff at Durango couldn't have been more sympathetic and helpful.
This is a very rustic RV park located in a National Forest. Sites are scattered among pine trees, but the trees are trimmed well enough to not be a problem for big rigs. The bathhouses and showers are modern and spotless. The park may be a bit difficult to find. There's only one sign (at the entrance), Magellan GPS doesn't know that Diamond Lake exists, and the sign for their road, Diamond Lake Loop, is easy to miss. This may be the quietest campground we've been in, and it is convenient for exploring Crater Lake National Park and the forests and mountains in the area.
This is a fine, large RV park, well-cared for and comfortable. Paved roads and sites, multiple bath houses and a few spas. Some shade but mostly open sites. On the lower level of the park a train track is quite close, but there were no train horns, just the sound of wheels on tracks -- seemingly quite close. Speed bumps are a bit too high in quantity and a bit too high in height. Wi-Fi is okay, but a bit slow. Off-air TV signal OK, cable is analog and some stations were fuzzy. A high percentage of seasonal campers, but everyone seemed friendly. No fire rings, but there are picnic tables at each site. This is a good place to use as a base for visiting the Columbia River Gorge and Portland.
This is a gem of a little municipal campground located on the Columbia River. Sites are well spaced, and there's plenty of shade. Sites are roomy and paved, but some are a little bumpy. WiFi is free with a strong signal. Good off-air TV reception.
This is a very nice park in a suburban setting so there's good shopping nearby. There are many seasonal guests but plenty of space for overnighters. Roadways are smoothly paved and quite wide. There's a small concrete patio at each site, but no fire pits and no picnic tables. Sites are a bit close together, but I've seen worse. Bathhouse is modern, spacious and clean. Although the park is "family friendly" there is only a very small playground, no pool and no activities for kids. In fact, the entire weekend we were there we saw no children at all. The park is also very quiet, and well-maintained.
This an older but decent KOA close to town and not too far from the national monument. Gravel sites are level, good grassy space between sites. Arco is a town of about 900 people with an interesting history but not a lot of services. There are a couple of gas stations, a couple of restaurants and not much else.
The best thing I can say about this park is that it is located in Yellowstone NP, one of the most scenic places in the country. It is the only full-service campground in the park. All back in spaces, and if you are travelling with anything larger than a small travel trailer, expect a challenge. The loop roads are quite narrow with trees close to the pavement on the outside of the loops. It took me 45 minutes to get backed in, with no damage, but I could see by the damage to the trees across from our site that others weren't so lucky. The sewer connection is about 8 inches above the ground -- another challenge. The rest rooms are rustic but clean and the showers are in a separate building at the entrance to the park. You'll need to drive, especially after dark since this is bear country.
This is an extremely well-maintained RV park with a modern, spotless bathhouse. Sites are terraced on the side of a hill, but reasonably level. Pull-through sites are long and well-graveled. Wi-Fi was weak and intermittent at our site. There is no cable TV and our antenna received just one broadcast channel (Fox). Satellite is the way to go. The views from the park are terrific. This campground is part of a horse ranch, so if you like horses, that's a benefit. There is some noise from passing trains, but not too disturbing. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful, offering information on local attractions and services without being asked.
At first glance this older, in-town RV park seems a little rough, but is actually a fine park. Restrooms are modern and clean, with good hot water. They charge an extra $1 per day for cable, but it is a full line up including HBO and well worth the buck. The park is convenient to the town's attractions, including the Roosevelt National Park. Sites are a bit close together, but we've seen worse. No campfires permitted due to local regs. We would definitely stay here again.
If anyone wants to invest in an RV park, the Fargo area might be the place to do it. Fargo and environs is in the middle of a growth spurt and the available RV facilities are minimal. Anyway, this "park" is as described previously. It's a gravel parking lot with a little grass between sites. There are bathrooms in the adjacent Laundromat, but you need to go into the hotel for a shower. My wife tells me there is no temperature control on the shower in the family bathroom she used, and she came out par boiled. When she mentioned it to the desk, she was told that only the maintenance guy could adjust the temp. The park is adequate for a night or two. Wifi is very good, no cable but decent over the air TV reception. W/S/E hookups seem to be fine.
This is an older but decent KOA. Very good WiFi, no cable but good reception of Minneapolis stations on air. Sites could use some more gravel, especially when it rains. Bath houses are typical KOA, but in need of a little renovation. Staff is helpful and friendly. Good space between sites, plenty of shade, but no problem with trees as obstacles. We would definitely stay here again.
This is a very nice, well-appointed KOA. Sites are gravel and reasonably level, grounds and areas between sites are well-maintained grass. Bathhouse is modern and spotless. Wi-Fi is decent. No cable, but the antenna picked up a strong signal from all of the Madison stations. Friendly, helpful staff delivers firewood and fire rings to your site. There is some shade, but most sites are open and unshaded. Restaurants and other services are nearby. The only (minor) negative is the proximity to the interstate and some road noise.
We always try to stay at this park when traveling I-80/90 in this part of the country. It is a very nice KOA, clean and well-managed. Lots of tall pine trees, but also lots of room to maneuver big rigs. Sites are roomy and well appointed with picnic tables and fire ring. Park is convenient to shopping and restaurants. The only negative is the nearby and active train tracks with trains apparently run by engineers who just can't keep their hands off the horn button.
This is a well-appointed, large KOA with long pull-through sites, some shaded and some open to the sky. Bath houses consist of individual, private full baths. Pool was being renovated when we were there, but no discount offered. Wi-Fi worked well, but the cable TV was awful. Channel selection was good, but picture quality on many channels was bad. In fact, we used our antenna to pick up local Cleveland stations which came in very well. Staff was friendly and helpful. There's a balance of seasonal guests and transients, but no issue there. There's a RR track very near the park, and one train horn blew in the middle of the night, and there were a couple of toots in the early morning.
This park is now officially a KOA. It's a large, well-run campground with friendly staff, reasonably level gravel sites, and a small private lake. There are a fair number of friendly seasonal campers here, but lots of open and wooded spaces available for transients. Pull-throughs are long enough to keep towed/tow vehicles hitched, and sites are roomy and well-spaced. Bath houses are small, but there are several scattered throughout the park. Lots of scheduled activities for kids and adults. As mentioned by previous reviewers, there are lots of golf carts running around, but they didn't seem to be a problem. The park is not near the interstate highway, so if you are planning just a quick overnight stop, check the distance from your route before deciding to stay here.
I agree with most previous reviews. This is a nice campground with a variety of wooded and open spots. Gravel sites are reasonably level, but the interior roadways are sand and dusty when dry. Restrooms are small and rustic but adequate. This family-friendly park has a nice pool and spa, very friendly and helpful staff, a snack bar and separate group camping area. This is our second visit here and we will most likely return.
The only reason I didn't rate this park a 10 is that I try to reserve that perfect score for perfection. This campground comes close. This is a newly designated KOA with a long and varied history. Gravel sites are wide and roomy. There's a view of the lake from virtually everywhere. Bath houses are clean and modern. If you are into boating and water sports, this island, with its marina, would be heaven. The few downsides: Cable at our site didn't work -- off air stations were reasonably strong. Wi-Fi was OK, but I used my 4G cellular data service most of the time. Depending on the time of year you are here the bugs and Canada geese can be annoying. But heck, its an island. This is our second visit here, the first was in pre-KOA days, and we would definitely come back again. This is a true destination RV park.
This campground is located in Berlin, MD, not Ocean City as listed. This is a good thing because Ocean City is a big, crowded beach resort, and Frontier Town is in the woods on the bay. Our rate was with off-season, mid-week discounts. If you go during the summer, expect to pay a lot more. This is a very nice and very big RV resort. Our site wasn't level, but manageable. Restrooms are modern and spotless. Wooded sites are roomy, and most open sites seemed adequate. Full hookup sites seem to be all back in. Waterfront sites are on the bay, not the ocean. Wi-Fi and cable TV are fine. As mentioned, we were here in off-season, and it was very quiet. I can belief it is a bit noisier during the summer. The park has lots of activities including a wild west show, a water park, a marina, a restaurant, etc.
This is a big KOA on the ocean in Cape Hatteras, but if you think you'll be able to see the surf from your rig, think again. Most sites, even those closest to the beach, are on the shore side of a high dune, so the beach is a short walk, but not visible. Sites are sand and gravel and ours wasn't level. (I'm not sure where a previous reviewer saw concrete pads. Maybe under the sand, but not at our site.) During our stay the Wi-Fi never connected to the web. Restrooms are individual full baths. This park was virtually destroyed a year ago by Sandy, and the rebuilt version is very nice. Sites are wide with reasonable space in between. Pool/spa is terrific and there's an on-site restaurant which will deliver to your site.
As others have reported here, this campground is a hidden gem about 12 miles from Winston-Salem. Situated within the 1200 acre Tanglewood Park, the campground is located in a lovely grove of mature trees, far enough from the interstate highway to make for a quiet night's sleep. The trees are trimmed so as not to interfere with larger rigs. Full hookups all work well, including the free Wi-Fi. The large sites are paved, and some are considered "not level" so when you make your reservation be sure to inquire. Most sites are well separated from neighboring sites. The overall park sports an equestrian center and bridle trails, two 18 hole golf courses, a water park, an off-leash dog park, and hiking trails. This was our second visit here, and in fact, we travelled about 50 miles out of our way to camp here again.
Grass parking lot in typical, mid-level beach resort area. Full hookups, including cable, work well, but there's a fee for Wi-Fi. No restrooms or showers. Spaces are close together, but I've been in tighter parks. Sites are mostly sand and somewhat level. About 3/4 of the spaces are occupied by permanent or seasonal guests. Those we met are friendly. Good location for beach activities, restaurants and grocery shopping. Park is clean, but basic. Not much else in the Wilmington area with hook ups except the KOA which was full.
This is a very nice park in the mountains. The individual full baths are among the nicest I've seen. Cable TV was fine, Wi-Fi was intermittent on a day when the park was virtually full. Sites are gravel with a fair amount of grass in between. Our site was a bit unlevel, but manageable. Roadways are quite narrow and with tow and towed vehicles parked along the road maneuvering to and from sites is problematic when park is full.
This is the lowest rating I've ever given a campground among almost 100 reviews. My first problem is the cost, but this appears to be the norm for Nashville. There was trash scattered throughout our site. Beer bottles and cans, paper, and cigarette butts all over the place. The gravel site wasn't level, but manageable. I've paid $60 (rarely) at other campgrounds, but they've been clean, level and nicely appointed. This place is okay, but there's no excuse for the messy condition of our site, especially with the number of staff members I've seen in the park. Wi Fi is fine, cable TV is fine, and the location is good for seeing the Nashville sights.
Not much to add to previous reviews. If you're visiting Graceland, this is the place to stay. Located across the parking lot from the Graceland ticket office and museums, you save the $15 parking fee if you camp elsewhere and drive here. Sites are a bit close together, but I've seen worse--utilities and Wi-Fi are fine. Off air TV signal is strong. Sites are gravel and reasonably level, not a lot of shade, but the park is well-kept and the staff friendly and helpful. Besides all of that, where else can you camp at the end of Lonely Street next to Heartbreak Hotel?
This is a rustic, heavily wooded campground, so if you're looking for a resort or parking lot with hookups, look elsewhere. Very quiet since its on the outskirts of Branson. Friendly, helpful staff, reasonably level gravel sites with good space in between. Overhead tree branches not a problem, but there are some tight turns within the campground and narrow winding access roads coming in.
I agree with the previous reviews. The only negatives are the over-abundance of street lights, the lack of enough picnic tables, and absence of fire rings. Other than those issues this is a terrific campground with concrete pads and lots of grass between sites.
The only reason I didn't rate this campground a 10 is that they charge a daily park pass fee in addition to the camping fee, and they charge for showers. Sites are far apart, they are level, roomy concrete pads equipped with fire rings and tables. The Cherry Creek State Park is close to Denver and has a good size lake with boating, fishing and swimming. There is even a public shooting range in the park. Wi-Fi is adequate and the TV antenna pulls in lots of local stations. The bath houses are spotless and modern. Even as late as October this popular campground fills up on weekends, so be sure to make reservations early.
If you go by first impressions you might just turn around and head to the nearest Walmart parking lot when you see this place. But in this case, first impressions do deceive. When you approach this park it looks like a decommissioned KOA with a bunch of old trailers and motor homes parked in it. There are a fair number of seasonal/permanent campers here, but the ones we met seem nice. The sites are level gravel, there are many pull-throughs, and all services work fine. Some of the sites are a bit narrow, but not so narrow they hamper awnings and slides. The cable TV is all digital with many channels to choose from. The WiFi is decent. The restrooms and showers are modern, spacious and spotless. The pool, which was closed for the season, looked nice. There's a short walk to the Eagle River which runs behind the park, and the park is situated about 12 miles from Aspen. The rate I quoted does not include the available AAA, AARP and Good Sam discounts. Yes, the grounds could use a bit of modernization, but all-in-all this is a very nice RV park.
This is a decent KOA in the small town of Green River. Its close to the highway, but noise isn't a problem. Sites are roomy and mostly dirt and gravel, as are the interior roads. Sites are reasonably level and the roadways are well-maintained. Dust can be a problem, but the park is in the desert, so that can be expected. Restrooms/showers are modern and clean, Wi-Fi is okay but cable had some lost signals, especially on windy days. There's a decent restaurant near the entrance to the park, and the park provides free coffee and pastries in the morning at the office.
This is one of the best parks we've stayed in and one of the most expensive. But, you get what you pay for. Smooth paved roads; level concrete sites; good room between sites; fire rings at sites; nice landscaping. The trees mentioned in an earlier review don't seem to be a problem. Wi-Fi works well, cable TV is fine. There's a very nice clubhouse/lodge and store. The only negative is that cell service may be unavailable on some systems at certain sites, but there is a cell booster available at no cost in the office/store which worked fine on my Verizon phone, but no 3/4G service.
Nicely wooded campground near Bryce Canyon NP, but we needed all of our wood and levelers to get our trailer level and looking around, most sites seemed similar. Interior roadways are very rough local stone (not uniform-size gravel) and dirt. It looks like rain would make a lot of mud. Some of the sewer connections are too high to permit easy draining of tanks. On the plus side, the Wi-Fi is decent, the rest rooms and showers are modern and clean. A word of caution: if you are coming from the east, don't stop at the Motel, the campground is up the road about 1/4 mile and the office is in the Chevron station on the left.
This is a very nice small park near Capitol Reef National Park. Spaces are roomy, staff is helpful and friendly. Gravel sites are reasonably level. No fire rings at sites. Bathrooms and showers are modern and spotless, but they are limited in number. Cable TV is okay, but not digital. Wi-Fi is one of the best I've used in an RV park. This park is located in a very rural and isolated area. Make sure you bring enough supplies for your visit as there are very limited shopping opportunities nearby, but if you time your visit right you can pick apples from the many fruit trees in the park.
This is a terrific park in a beautiful setting in a valley on the outskirts of Durango. There are an equal number of shady and open gravel sites, but some seemed to be not very level. The area was hit with unusual rainstorms the week we were there and some of the open sites were flooded. Staff brought in pumps to get the water out, but it must have been messy for those camped at those sites. Friendly and helpful staff, Wi-Fi was iffy at our site, but seemed to work well at the office. In September an all you can eat breakfast is offered at a reasonable price. I believe that's a daily feature during the main season. Restrooms and showers are modern and clean. We would definitely stay again if in the area.
This is a very nice park on the edge of Montrose. It is quiet and very attractive with flower plantings throughout. Sites are quite narrow with no room for picnic tables or fire rings, but small cocktail-size tables with two chairs are provided at each site. WiFi is quite good but cable TV had some annoying interruptions. Restrooms are spotless but if you are disabled be forewarned that there are several steps up to the facilities. Owners are very friendly and helpful. We would stay here again when in the area.
This RV park is behind a small motel type B&B. The park is heavily wooded, but the trees didn't cause any maneuvering issues. Roadways are dirt and there was evidence of possible mud when it rains. The park is hilly and when we approached our site it looked like it would be terribly unlevel, but when we got up to it we saw that two level concrete pads were positioned to be under the wheels. We were perfectly level. Our site was smaller than some others, but we didn't feel cramped. The road the park is on is hardly a major highway and road noise was not a problem. Bath house is modern and clean. There is no pool but there is a nice hot tub. There are no fire rings at the sites, but there is a nice central fireplace with seating. The park is at 8000 feet and the temperature was easily 20 degrees cooler than in Colorado Springs about 20 miles away. We would definitely stay here again.
This is an adequate KOA but nothing too fancy. It's located very near the interstate and a RR track, so noise may be a problem. It wasn't an issue for us because its been quite hot and we ran the air conditioner during our visit. Decent (analog) cable, good WiFi at the site. Roads and sites are gravel and the pull through sites are long and wide. Rest rooms are reasonably clean, but being a holiday weekend with a pretty full park, the single bath house isn't quite up to handling the crowd. If you've never been to this part of Colorado, this is high desert with a distant view of the Rockies. The park offers an inexpensive pancake breakfast and some special food-related activities. Many restaurants and shopping are about 6 miles away.
Nice park convenient to Dodge City attractions. Pull through spaces are long and wide. Interior roads are mostly gravel, uneven and dusty. Sites are gravel and reasonably level. There are some trees (a rarity in the plains) so some sites have some shade. Rustic, but clean restrooms and showers. Very good Wi-Fi and cable. Pool looks nice and pool area seems clean (we didn't use the pool). A train goes by once in a while on nearby tracks, but didn't seem to be a major issue. A few seasonal RVers here and quite a few one-nighters, but the park is ideal for longer stays while exploring this area of Kansas.
The only downside to this park is the lack of shade. The Kansas high plains wind also makes putting out the awning not recommended. The sites are all pull-through, long and quite wide. But they are gravel with spots of grass here and there. The roadways in the park are also gravel and wide. The park has very good bath house facilities, a nice pool, a decent restaurant right outside the gate and a gas station (with diesel) right across the street. The owners refer to it as a "RV resort like park" and that's true if you read between the lines. It is NOT an RV resort, but a very nice campground.
This is a well-cared for small RV park with paved roadways and paved, reasonably level sites. A majority of the units are seasonal, but they seem to have a few daily sites available most of the time. I would recommend reservations to be sure. The park is centrally located for visits to Fort Riley (US Cavalry Museum), Manhattan, KS and the Eisenhower Library and Museum. Cable TV gets many stations and the Wi-Fi works well. There is also a hard line web connection in the laundry room. There is just one unisex full bath, but even with the park full there hasn't been a long wait to use the facilities. We would stop here again if in the area.
This is one of those hidden gem campgrounds in a county park. Interior roads are well paved and sites are wide, level gravel. Many sites have decent space between them, but some are a bit close together. Good water pressure (bring a regulator), 30/50 amp electric, and easy to access sewer connections in full service sites. No cable or wi fi but good off air TV reception and my Verizon 4G phone provided a decent web connection. There is a large lake in the park with a swimming beach and marina where pontoon boats can be rented. Finding the campground can be a challenge because the Woods Chapel Road address on the website is for the park amin. building which is several miles from the campground, so call for directions or use the directions at the bottom of the e-mail receipt. The park is about 20 minutes from downtown Kansas City, but very quiet.
Nice campground minutes from the Mark Twain Boyhood Home and other Twain-related attractions in the small Mississippi River city. The wooded sites seem roomy but the pull throughs in the open area are a bit close together. Staff seems to attempt to keep an open space between rigs when possible. Bath houses are modern and clean.
This is a nice campground located about 25 miles from Peoria. It's an older facility, but well-maintained. Sites are level and roomy. There are quite a few seasonal campers here, but during our midweek stay we didn't see many people. The bathhouses are rustic and reasonably clean (not spotless). Off air TV reception is good and my Verizon 4G worked okay for a web connection. This property runs public country music shows every Saturday night during the summer, and since we're here at midweek I don't know what impact that has on the ambience of the park.
This is a decent park among cornfields and woods, but is technically in Rochester not Springfield. It is about half-an-hour to the Abe Lincoln attractions in Springfield and about 10 minutes to a very nice public park on Springfield Lake. The roads going to the RV park are narrow and in need of resurfacing. Roadways and sites in the park are gravel and in pretty good shape. Sites aren't perfectly level but we had no trouble leveling our trailer. Bathhouse is okay and clean, Cable TV is adequate, but Wi-Fi and my connection using a 4G phone were marginal. Previous reviewers criticism about a lack of enough signage is valid. There are several ways into this KOA and it seems that only one of them is marked. My GPS got us there, but via an unmarked back way.
This campground in a state park was a very pleasant surprise. Spacious sites with smoothly paved parking areas and roadways, and decent, clean bath houses. There are some shade trees, but the park consists mainly of nicely cared for grass. The park is about 30 minutes from Churchill Downs and Louisville, KY. The campground appears to be under utilized, but that may be an incorrect impression. One warning -- if you make an online reservation and plan to arrive on a Sunday, arrivals and departures on Sundays are 5pm for both. Wouldn't you know, of all those sites, when we arrived at 3:30, the one I selected online was occupied by a family not intending to leave until exactly 5pm. There was no problem switching to an open site, but we did have to drive around a bit to find one that was suitable for our rig. We would definitely return if camping again in the Louisville area.
This is a terrific campground located about 10 miles from Lexington and the Kentucky Horse Park. The rest room/shower facilities are the best we've seen during a cumulative 15 months of RVing. The staff is friendly and helpful and the park is well maintained. There is no cable TV, but lots of digital broadcast stations come in strong. Now the few minuses. The roads in the park need resurfacing, but they are passable. There is no shade at all, and the sites are a bit close together, but not so close to interfere with slide outs or awnings. We would definitely stay here again.
This is a heavily wooded campground in a large state park. Sites are a bit narrow, but manageable. Some sites appear to be very difficult to get level on. No on air TV signal, and probably no satellite signal due to trees. We couldn't get a cell signal at our site. This is a very quiet campground with a decent and clean bath house. There is a small grocery store a few miles away and a decent supermarket 10 miles away in Davis. Very pretty countryside and mountains. The pool is at the lodge which is too far to walk, and is currently undergoing major renovation. We did get a weak Wi-Fi signal at the lodge.
First the good stuff. This park is convenient to I-95 just north of Richmond. It is well laid out, sites are reasonably level and roomy. Many tall trees provide shade, but do not reach RV roofs. Bath houses are modern and spotless. Roadways and sites are gravel, there are picnic tables and fire rings at each. Cable TV is very good, electrical service and water connections are also top notch. We didn't use the park's Wi-Fi, so I have no comment on that. There isn't a lot of bad stuff, but here it is: Closeness to I-95 does make for consistent road noise. Many of the sewer connections are high and may be higher than some RV sewer drains. Since water has a problem running up hill, this may require the time consuming job of frequently lifting the hose to empty it. Primarily due to the location, we've stayed here before and will most likely stay here again.
This is a well-run KOA with mostly level sand/gravel sites and interior roads. Sites are of decent size, the cable TV is very good, and Wi-Fi is Tengo, so there is a fee. This is our 4th visit here, and the only negative is the relatively high camping fees, which are typical for KOA. We were there during Hurricane Sandy and the campground suffered no damage except for a few potholes on the roadways which were graded out the next day. Restrooms and showers are modern and spotless, and there is a diesel/gas station and an RV-sized car wash right outside the gate.
This is a lovely little campground in an 1100 acre county park that was once the estate of a member of the Reynolds tobacco family. Interior roads and sites are all paved and sites are all full-hookup. There is lots of space between sites, the trees are high and not obstructive. Some sites are not level, but when making reservations you can select a level or non-level site. Restrooms are rustic but spotless. Recreational activities within the campground are limited, but the park offers two 18-hole golf courses, two lakes, a tennis center, horseback riding, a playground, a pool, and many other things to do. There is no campground store, but there is a supermarket just down the road. The park is located off I-40, 10 minutes from Winston-Salem. There is no traffic noise to speak of. This is one of those campgrounds we wish we could find everywhere we travel with our RV.
Sites are stuck into this complex campground wherever they marginally fit, some at very strange angles. The sites in the "pull-through" area exit directly onto the public road, making security a potential issue. The sites are concrete and level, but in the pull-through area the grass strip separating the sites is barely 6 feet wide, and between some there are trees to maneuver around. Some of these sites, however, are long enough to accommodate the longest rig combinations. The park is located above the interstate, so the hum of highway noise is a constant. On the plus side: the restrooms are spotless and the park is convenient to Biltmore and downtown Asheville. I wouldn't rule out staying here again, but I would definitely first look for something better.
Typicsl of parks in urban or busy tourist areas this park has somewhat narrow roadways and minimal space between sites. We had a pull-through with a tree tight against the left side of the site. In order for our living room slide to be clear of the tree, we needed to park towards the front of the site, which was too far for our 40 ft. of sewer hose to reach the sewer inlet. Since we were staying just a few days, we were able to back up to the sewer and dump our tanks before we left. The park is well-maintained, sites reasonably level, although backing into some of the spaces looked like it would be a challenge. The restrooms and showers are modern and spotless. The park is about one mile off the main drag of Pigeon Forge, which makes it convenient to the tourist attractions, but far enough away to be quiet.
This is a very popular campground for RVers heading south. We were here 4 days and every afternoon rigs were coming in. Very convenient to I-77 and I-81, but far enough off the highway for a quiet night's rest. The restrooms and showers are modern and spotless. The cable TV is fine, and the Wi-Fi is okay most of the time. Sites are gravel and reasonably level, with enough space between sites. A majority of sites seem to be pull-throughs. No issue here with seasonal campers, at least in mid-October. Staff was friendly, but no escort to sites, but I didn't think an escort was needed. Overall, this is one of the best campgrounds among the hundreds we've stayed in.
This is a older, but well-maintained campground. Most sites are gravel, and although there are large trees among the sites, the low branches seemed to be well-trimmed and didn't present a problem. There are just a few pull-through sites, and some of the back ins are a bit tight, but knowledgeable staff was on hand to assist. Sites are reasonably level. Interior roadways are well-paved and signage to the campground is quite adequate. We were here in off-season, although the campground seemed quite busy. The entrance area is a bit narrow, so I can see how it could get backed up during high season. Some sites have hookups on the off-side of the rig. Our sewer was on the left. The water, power, and cable were on the right. But this wasn't a big issue in hooking up. The rates are a bit high, but I've paid more for less.
After reading the previous two reviews I needed to check to make sure I stayed at the same campground. Although the pull-through sites are a bit narrow, I've certainly seen narrower. The back in sites seemed roomy and many are in decent shade. The park is well-maintained, the staff is friendly and accommodating. There are all sorts of scheduled activities for kids, including rides on a fire engine and a tractor-pulled wagon. Yes, the campground is in a rural area -- it is, after all, a campground. Using Springfield in the name is a bit of a stretch, but it is 20 minutes from the center of Northampton. Signs leading to the park from every direction are plentiful, and anyone following the directions provided on the reservation confirmation shouldn't have any issues getting to the park. Wi-Fi worked well, and the cable TV is adequate. We would definitely stay here again.
If you are looking for an "RV Resort" look elsewhere. If you are looking for a rustic campground in the woods, read on. The interior roads are steep, unpaved, tight, and very rough. The trees are trimmed back enough to permit big rigs access with no roof damage. And some sites look like they will accommodate big rigs without too much hassle. Other sites however, will make entry and exit a serious challenge. On the plus side, the Wi-Fi works well and the cable TV is terrific. The trees make for good privacy on most sites. I don't think satellite dishes will work well with all of the trees. There are a fair number of seasonal campers here, but that's really not an issue. We stayed here during the week and the nights were quiet.
This is a nice campground in a Saint John Municipal park located 5 minutes from the center of town. Sites are gravel/grass, fairly level, and reasonably roomy. Although there is no pool, there is a swimming beach on the nearby lake. WiFi was weak from our site (#38). The roadways coming into to the park from the Trans Canada Highway and the city are through a residential neighborhood and quite hilly. The signs showing the route are small and may be hard to spot. There is a restaurant in Rockwood Park, a short hike from the campground. There is an attendant or security guard at the campground gate 24/7. This is a good location for exploring Saint John and the Bay of Fundy area.
This is a long, narrow campground with a mix of campsites. We were in a pull-through in a mostly transient area, and the one bath house was about half a mile from the site, and if I'm exaggerating it isn't by much. There are quite a few seasonal folks here, mostly in the wooded, back-in sites, and some of those sites seem to be available for transients. The grounds are well-maintained, the bath house was clean and large enough to handle the number of campers. Wi-Fi worked well, but off-air TV reception is very limited. Location is convenient to both Ellsworth for shopping and the usual services, and Bar Harbor/ Acadia National Park. The $45 rate shown doesn't include the Good Sam discount, but this is one of the more reasonably-priced campgrounds in the popular Bar Harbor area.
This is very nice campgroound along a narrow portion of the Annapolis River. Sites are grass and reasonably level. I checked "no" on "Family friendly park" because the owner considers this park a seniors camp, although there appear to be no formal age restrictions. About half the sites are taken with seasonal campers, but we found them to be quite friendly. There's a nominal fee for wifi, which worked very well and a fee for cable TV, which was a pleasant surprise for campgrounds in the maritimes, where off-air antennas generally get just one or two channels. The cable here is full-service, including digital channels from the US. Restrooms are rustic but clean. Most transient sites are in an open area, but we were able to get a river front site, in the shade, for our 3 day stay. The owner is quite helpful and accommodating, but be warned, credit or debit cards are not accepted as payment.
This is a mostly rustic campground that has been in business under the same family management for 50 years. The 5 pull-through sites closest to the road are in an open area, but there are many nice sites back in the woods. The traffic noise in the front sites isn't too bad at night. The restrooms are rustic but clean, and there is a fee for using the shower ($1 for 10 minutes). The staff is friendly and helpful, and the location is terrific, about 10 minutes from Peggy's Cove and about 40 minutes from Halifax. There are several wi-fi repeaters, and the wi-fi was decent at our site. TV reception on the antenna was very poor. The owner told me that there are about 40 seasonal campers among the 150 sites, so that didn't seem to be an issue.
This is a rustic campground operated by a local hunting and fishing club. Several end-to-end sites are right on the lake (our rig is parked 15 feet from the water). Sites are grass, some are in shaded areas, most seem reasonably level. Previous listings show some 50 amp service but the current campground map has 50 crossed out and replaced with 30. Washrooms and showers are rustic, but clean. Lots of water activities are available including swimming and canoe rentals. The park is 5 minutes from Sherbrooke, a small town with two service stations with diesel pumps and a small supermarket. The lakefront site we're in is very nice and we would stay here again if in the area.
This campground is convenient to St. Anthony and the nearby attractions. The best sites are occupied by seasonal campers, but the transient sites aren't bad. We're in a grass site that is reasonably wide and long enough to accommodate our 32 foot RV and the tow vehicle. The sites seem reasonably level. Wi-Fi was awful, and our site is 50 feet from the office. Antenna TV signal is poor. Our cell phone shows no service here, but I don't know if that's provider specific (we use Verizon). Restrooms are clean and modern. We would camp here again if in the area.
The areas of this park suitable for big rigs is a gravel parking lot with hookups. Other, mostly unserviced sites, are in attractive, shady spots that appear to be very nice. The restrooms are modern and clean, the staff friendly and helpful. The location is terrific for exploring the Gros Morne National Park. The Wi-Fi at our site was not accessible, but it was very strong a short walk away in a covered pavilion. Grocery supplies in Rocky Harbour are limited, so if you plan to stay a while, be sure to stock up before you get here.
This is a very nicely laid-out campground in a rural area. Sites are roomy and separated from neighboring sites in a way that assures privacy. Very convenient to the Nova Scotia ferry so its a good spot to stay upon arrival on the island since the ferry gets in late in the afternoon. The owners and staff are Newfoundlanders -- extremely warm, friendly and helpful. Wifi is among the best campground wifi we've experienced. Restrooms are clean and well cared-for. The park is nestled in the Cordroy Valley which is a very pretty setting of mountains and rivers. Antenna TV reception is quite limited. We would definitely stay here again.
This is a nice campground on a terraced mountainside with a great view of northern Lake Bras D'Or and the Seal Island Bridge. The Wi-Fi at our site was very strong and off air TV provided 3 stations. Sites are wide and reasonably level. Bathouses are clean and modern. The firewood sold at the campground is a big bunch, complete with kindling and paper. The daily rate of $49 doesn't reflect the KOA member discount, but (in my opinion) is quite steep, especially early in the season. The location is convenient to the Cabot Trail and not too far from Baddeck. Decent grocery shopping is in North Sidney, about 12 miles away, which is also where the Noufoundland ferry terminal is located.
This is a very nice campground on a picturesque bay. Quite a few grass sites are right on the bay. The new owners are very friendly and helpful. Restrooms are a bit rustic, but quite clean. Wi-Fi is currently available only at the office but they expect to have it at the sites later this season. Sites could be more level than they are, but getting the rig leveled was not a problem. Fresh lobsters are available from the owner who picks them up at the boat. The campground is about 20km from the closest town of any size, which is Montague, where you'll find two supermarkets and other services. All in all, this was a very nice and relaxing place to stay on this wonderful island.
As previous reviewers reported, this is a gem of a little campground. The total number of sites listed (26) is made up mostly of cottages and tent sites. I counted only about a half-dozen RV sites. Although the facility is right in town, it is surprisingly quiet. It sits on a ridge overlooking the town marina, and is convenient to shopping and the local sights. The only negative occurred when checking in. I pulled into the driveway which provides access to the cottages, motel, and RV sites, but getting to the RV sites required driving through a very narrow parking area in front of the motel. Barely enough room to squeeze through. Also, the 2012 season may be the last for this campground. The owner is planning to break ground for a hotel on the property in September, and that will mean closing the campground to make room for a parking lot.
Our daily rate reflects our early season stay at Marco Polo Land. The posted summer rate is #41.90. This is a large, well-kept campground which includes a restaurant, an inn, a decent camp store and numerous play areas and family activities. There are both open sites on grassy areas resembling a golf course, and wooded areas as well. Our open campsite was exactly level, and wide and deep enough to easily back into. Even though it has rained for our entire stay, the site never got muddy. Marco Polo is about a mile from the Green Gables House of the 1908 novel, and just a bit farther from the beach. There is an adequate number of bath houses scattered throughout the park. The only negative is the lack of cable TV and only a handful of channels accessible by antenna.
This is a nice, well-maintained campground convenient to Moncton's attractions. Sites are mostly grass, reasonably wide,and reasonably level. The connections for water and power are located at the back, between every two sites which means your connections may be on the off side of your rig. This wasn't a problem for us because our connections are at the rear, but I could see it as a potential problem if your connections are in the center of your rig and your podium is on the other side. The sewer connections are located where you would expect to find them.The restrooms are spotless, and the shower stalls are surprisingly spacious, but there is only one bathhouse, and when the campground gets full, you may have to wait.
This is a terrific campground bordered on two sides by Passamaquoddy Bay which is part of the Bay of Fundy. The level sites are gravel, and it appears that lots of new gravel has recently been added. The bath house is modern and spotless. There is no cable TV, but we received 9 stations (including digital) on our rig's antenna. The Wi-Fi is among the best campground Wi-Fi we've experienced anywhere. The only negative is that the sewer connections are close to the neighboring site's picnic table which wasn't a problem for us because we were here early in the season and we had no near neighbors.
Mt. Desert Narrows is operated by a group which runs two other campgrounds in the area. I'll give them the benefit of the doubt, since we visited very early in the season, but the grass needed mowing, many of the sites weren't ready, and the lower bath house was boarded up. The waterfront sites do not have sewer connections, and there are a limited number of sites with 50amp power. The sites are grass/dirt/a little gravel, and some appeared to be not very level. Our site, 150, had giant tire ruts, but they were far enough away from where I parked to not cause a problem. The sites are big enough to handle most any size rig. The one open bath house was clean, although the showers were quite rustic. The park is convenient to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park, and guests are provided with a comprehensive packet of local guides, maps, and information.
This was our second visit to Wild Duck and the only reason I rate it 9 and not 10 is that some of the premium back-in spaces are a bit difficult to get into with a 32 ft. 5th wheel. Other than that, the place is great. It is well-maintained, quiet, mainly because kids aren't permitted. It is bordered by a very scenic marsh, and not too far from grocery shopping, restaurants, Cabela's and other facilties. The gravel sites are reasonably level, and raked after every departure.If you use a Magellen/Good Sam GPS, be forwarned, the directions to Wild Duck linked to the Good Sam POIs are very wrong. If you manually enter the address it will get you right there.
We camped here off season, during the week, and the campground was sparsely populated. The staff was friendly and helpful, the gravel/dirt sites seem quite roomy. Some of the features of the place were not open, which made the nightly fee a bit steep. There are quite a few seasonal campers here, and some of the available spaces seemed to be not very level. Our site ran downhill, but leveling our rig wasn't a problem. Oh, don't let the name fool you, there isn't a bay anywhere in view. The location on the western end of Cape Cod is convenient to several of the popular tourist attractions on the cape. Overall, I'd say this is a decent campground, but I don't know how it would be at peak season.
This large campground is adjacent to Knoebels Amusement Park, which is a family-friendly old style amusement park, with no admission charge, and reasonable prices for rides and food. The campground has electric hookups only, but there are several water fill spots at the entrance, and a few dump stations on the property. The campground is wooded, some sites may present leveling issues, and the trees may present issues for larger rigs. There is frequent shuttle service to the amusement park, although it isn't too far to walk. Restrooms are rustic, but adequate. Reservations are a must, especially on weekends. The fee is high, considering minimum hookups, no cable and no antenna access, but how many campgrounds provide a really cool amusement park on the premises?
I guess there is truth to the old adage that you can please some of the people some of the time but not all of the people all of the time. I don't get reviewers complaints about the size of the sites. We have a 32 ft fifth wheel. This was our second time in this KOA. Yes there are trees. Trees make shade, and provide a woodsy atmosphere. Since there are trees you need to be a bit careful driving through, but the sites are certainly bigger than some I've been in. There was also room to park the truck. My only complaint is the nearby RxR and the sound of the trains. This is a lovely, well-run KOA, with sparkling clean restrooms, and helpful, friendly management. Yes, there are lots of KOA's with no trees at all. Given a choice, I'll always go for the trees.
This is a funky little campground set well off the road on a family farm. The pull through sites look like back in sites at first glance, but the idea is to pull in and face a large lawn area which is used to pull out. Staff is very friendly, the park is quiet, with a fair proportion of seasonal campers. There is a swimming/fishing pond, table and fire ring at each site, and decent room between sites. Wi-Fi works well, but there is a $2 daily fee for Wi-Fi. The park is close enough to Chicago for antenna TV reception. Some of the overnight sites may require a bit of work to level your rig, but I've seen worse. We would stay here again.
I'm not a big fan of the Corps of Engineers, but this park is something they've done right. Spacious, level, concrete pads, paved interior roads, lots of space between sites, and enough trees for shade but not so many they get in the way. Electrical service only, but water faucets are scattered throughout. There's an easily accessible dump station. Good antenna TV reception from Des Moines. The rate we paid was due to the Senior Pass.
We were originally planning to make this an overnight stop but extended two nights. Park is in the middle of a cornfield, but I didn't look to see if there was a baseball field built on the other side. Some sites are narrow, but I've seen worse. Our site was perfectly level. Although close to I-80, the corn seems to dampen the highway noise, at least this time of year. Nice pool and spa. Wi-Fi didn't work at all for a couple of days, but it started working on our third day. No services nearby, but virtually no traffic to get to them about 10 miles away. Some interesting historical sites in the area, but a bit of a drive to see them. Office makes hot pizza every day($$) and delivers to your site. We would stay here again.
Although close to I-80 there wasn't too much highway noise at night. This park is in the high desert, and looks like it. It's all gravel, but the pull-through spaces are quite long and wide enough for slides. Awnings aren't recommended due to desert winds. This is a good place to use as a base to explore Flaming Gorge, the most scenic parts of which are 45 miles south on the Utah side of the border. The wild horse self guided tour is near by, and the BLM mustang depot is close as well. This is our second time here, and we would return if in the area.
This is the second time we've stayed at Flagg Ranch and it hasn't changed at all in 3 years. This is a very rustic campground in the national forest between Grand Teton National Park and Yellowstone NP. It is exactly 60 miles north of Jackson, WY. The campground is heavily wooded, and wildlife (including bears) sometimes wander through the park. The biggest downside, aside from the exorbitant price, which is typical for the area, is the 20amp electrical service. It fluctuates between 108 and 118 volts. If you are prepared for the cost and the iffy power, it's a decent place to stay while exploring the two wonderful national parks.
This is a very pleasant and quiet campground with reasonably level shaded sites. Staff provides free coffee in the store, and $2.50 pancake breakfast every morning. There's a pool and spa, and a playground. Park is a short drive to all services and stores, but being in an industrial area, there is some traffic noise, but it isn't a problem. Wi-Fi is free and good. No cable TV but good reception on the antenna (digital). We would definitely stay here again.
This is a small, in-town campground, not quite up to KOA standards, but not bad. It has 4 individual, coed, full bath restrooms, which were clean, the staff is friendly and helpful. The sites are a bit close together, but we've seen worse. Deer Lodge has a lot to offer for a very small town. The Grant-Kohrs Ranch National Historic Site is worth visiting, as is the Old Montana State Prison and attached museums. We would camp here again.
The only negative about this park is the narrow sites. All sites are paved with nice patios, but they are too narrow for both slides and awnings on large rigs. Nicely landscaped, nice indoor pool, very good Wi-Fi and cable. Clean modern restrooms and showers. The park is convenient to Coer d'Alene, ID as well as Spokane. Good shopping nearby. If you are here during the summer, be sure to get to Green Bluff Road for the cherry farms, especially if you like Rainier Cherries.
This is a very nice RV park offering a host of water activities on Moses Lake. The park appears to be divided into two sections. The newer section offers wide paved roadways and paved pads with grass in between. The sites are a bit close together, but not as close as in some other parks. This section is open with no shade trees. The older section, which is closer to the lake, is largely gravel with many large shade trees. The park is quite close to I-90 and there is some noise from the highway, but we didn't find it disturbing. There is a fee for Wi-Fi, which worked well, and the cable TV was fine.
Alder Lake Park is on a beautiful lake in a densely wooded area of Washington. All sorts of water sports are available, and the park is an easy drive to Mt. Rainier National Park. Mt. Rainier itself is visible (on clear days) over the lake from the marina area. The campground is well-maintained, with tables and fire rings at each site, but has limitations for larger RVs. The pull-through sites are the crescent type, and some are shorter than others, and some have large trees making maneuvering large rigs problematic. Also, many of the pull-through sites as well as back-ins are not level. It took us almost an hour to get our 32ft. Fifth wheel into position so it could be leveled with the many blocks and ramps I carry. I saw several class C motorhomes sitting with their front wheels up on piles a boards to get level. This park is a very popular weekend getaway, so reservations are a must on weekends. There is a very good online reservation service available.
This is a decent urban park, meaning the spaces and roadways are quite tight. The facilities and restrooms are spotlessly clean, the roadways are paved and the sites are concrete. Since the park is on a hill, some of the sites, particularly those at the bottom, are not level. To help compensate, the park recently provided wooden leveling ramps to run up on the low side to help level rigs. These are helpful, but not perfect. The park is surprisingly quiet for an urban park. The sites are quite narrow. We were able to park our tow vehicle next to the fifth wheel, but the passenger side door couldn't be opened. There are no picnic tables and no fire rings. The park is convenient to shopping and the Boeing Future of Flight Tour, and the staff is helpful and friendly.
This is a very nice RV park. Internal roadways are paved, sites are level gravel and quite roomy. The multiple restrooms are modern and spotless. Wi-Fi worked for my laptop at our site with no problem, but my wife needed to take hers to a hot spot. The beach is distant and on a bay, but access may be muddy if it's rained recently. The location is convenient to the ferries and Victoria. This is an expensive park, but this is Vancouver Island which is not known as the bargain capital of Canada. (Getting your rig out here on the ferry will cost upwards of $150.) We would definitely stay here again.
I noticed some negative reviews of the park from last year and earlier. Whatever the issues were, they have apparently been resolved. The entrance to this park is beautifully landscaped and laden with colorful flowers. The roomy sites afford good privacy. The cable TV provides more than 100 US and Canadian channels. The bathrooms and showers are modern and spotless, but there is a small fee for showers. Wi-Fi works close to the office. All in all, a very good RV park.
This is a decent older campground next door to a wildlife park. We were here just one night and didn't unhitch, but the site was level and long enough for the tow vehicle and 5'er. Some trees need to be trimmed where they hang a bit low over the roadways. Terrific cable TV and decent Wi-Fi. We were in a site closest to the highway, so traffic noise was noticable. We would stay here again.
This is a very nice modern RV park with sparkling clean restrooms and showers, and friendly and attentive staff. It is located in the foothills of the Canadian Rockies, just outside Jasper National Park. We saw 4 elk along the road approaching the campground. The only negatives I can report is that our gravel site (#22) was uneven, so we had difficulty leveling. Most other sites seemed to be more level. Also, the Wi-Fi is quite iffy, especially when the park is full. The town of Hinton, complete with a Safeway and WalMart, is just a few minutes west. We would definitely stay here again. One word of caution -- make reservations. The campground was full every night we were there.
We found this to be an adequate RV park for a short stay. There are no restrooms or showers, in fact, there are no buildings at all. There are two Porta Potties, but I don't consider them restrooms. The Canadian Pacific runs right next to the park, but if you consider the sound of trains at night to be romantic, this won't be a problem. There are picnic tables at some sites, but only one "community fire ring". Other than the golf course next door, the park offers few ameneties.
This is a very nice campground convenient to everything in Moose Jaw. Some sites are quite close together. There's room for the slides, but just barely. WiFi is best closest to the office. We were about as far away as possible, and WiFi service was intermittent. The washrooms are near the office, and as mentioned by another reviewer, there are no pathways through the rows of campsites, so if the park is full and you are in the last row, you will either walk through someone's site or all the way around the end to get to the washroom. We would stay here again if we are in the area.
This may have been a very nice campground at one time and may be again, but right now, its a mess. Recent floods in southern Saskatchewan has resulted in about half the campground being flooded and currently closed. Several of the washrooms are closed, and the interior roads have major potholes and mud. The voltage on the 30 amp service was so sporadic, it ranged from 100 to 120 volts on my voltmeter. This resulted in damage to the air conditioner circuit breaker which I needed to have replaced at a cost of $100 at our next stop. The campground has a nice swimming pond, and if the management can repair the flood damage and the roads, it could once again be a very nice park.
This park has apparently added a new section since the previous reviewer called it a gravel parking lot with small trees. The new section is a gravel parking lot with no trees. The spaces are rather narrow and close together, but when we were there the owners took care to provide separation between rigs. The Wi-Fi worked fine, but the $3 daily fee is a bit steep. The place is very clean and well-maintained, the staff very friendly and helpful. The sewer hookup is a bit high and makes for difficult draining from the waste tanks on some rigs, mine included. The park is located in Manitoba farmland, a short drive from the attractions in Winnipeg. As long as it isn't too crowded, Arrowhead is a fine spot as a base of operations for visits to the city. FYI, a new campground at a nearby provincial park was reported on TV to be opening in mid July, 2011, and it might be worth checking out if you are in the area.
This new campground continues to be a work in progress. It consists of about 1/2 wooded sites and about 1/2 in an open area. A Wi-Fi hot spot has been added near the office, and may be accessible from the lower sites. The staff is hard at work adding new sites and improving the facilities. Restrooms are adequate and the setting is rustic. We spent 4 nights here and during two days the electric power failed several times briefly, but this issue was apparently resolved. Sites seemed reasonably level. We would definitely stay here again. Staff was very helpful and friendly.
Happyland is located about 10 miles west of Thunder Bay on the trans Canada Highway. Sites are level, and most are heavily wooded, providing good privacy. Some may be a bit narrow for both slides and awnings. There is a rail line fairly close to the park, but I was awakened only once by a train during our 3 night stay. There are a fair number of seasonal guests here, but most seem to be in a separate "residential" area. This is a very nice park and I would definitely stay here again. Just a couple of minutes west of the park is Kakabeka Falls which is the second biggest in Ontario (Niagara is #1).
This is a very nice wooded campground a few minutes north of town. Grass sites appear to be level, at least ours was. No cable TV but some US and Canadian stations come in on the antenna. The road noise reported in other reviews is not really bad, and is to be expected at any campground along the Trans Canada Highway. The only negative I found was that some of the sewer connections are raised too high to afford complete tank drainage. I needed to lift the hose to empty it. This was not a major problem since there is a conveniently located dump station to completely empty the tanks when exiting the campground.
I agree with previous reviews. This is a decent older campground along side the Trans Canada Highway. Our grass site was level and roomy, the rest rooms are spotless. The staff is friendly and helpful and there is a "chip truck" on site serving fries and other food. The noise from the highway is a presence, but not terrible. We stayed here for one night en route west. And the Wi-Fi worked well. If you like to watch TV in your rig, you'll need a sat dish. There's no cable TV and no on air reception.
This campground is in a beautiful lake front setting. There are quite a few seasonal campers here, and the sites for transients were a bit problematic. Our site had a big hump in the middle of it and a very branching tree on one side, making maneuvering into a level spot problematic. Staff was very helpful in that they willingly trimmed some branches for us. Other daily sites seemed a bit narrow, and as I write this, a motorhome managed to squeeze in next to us. There aren't a lot of quality campgrounds in this area of the Trans Canada Highway. This one is quite adequate for one night, or even longer if you enjoy boating and fishing.
Fundy National Park has several campgrounds. We stayed in the Headquarters Campground next to the visitor's center and the town of Alma, which is right on the bay of Fundy. This is one of the best National Park campgrounds we've stayed in, both in the US and Canada. We had full hook-ups with excellent Wi-Fi, a first in our national park experience. The only road into Fundy is Hwy 114, which is in very rough shape. Both our sofa and TV set were sideways when we got here, and opening the cabinets was a bit of a challenge. We were here in Spring, and as apparently typical for New Brunswick, the most plentiful wildlife in the park is the black fly, so be sure to have plenty of bug spray with you. We would definitely stay here again.
This is a very nice little campground. All sites are on the bay, and all sites are grass. The only downside is that the sites are a bit close together...so close that the hook up podium is right next to the next site's picnic table. The host does alternate sites when possible, but when the place is full, expect to be really close to your neighbor. The wi-fi was weak, but adequate. The restrooms were very clean, and the staff very helpful and friendly. We would definitely camp there again.
Very friendly and helpful staff and nice campground. We were in an unpaved site which was reasonably level, but the recently refurbished gravel parking area was a bit narrow and too close to the connection podium for easy extension of the slides. The concrete pads on paved sites looked fine. Wi-Fi was quite good as was the cable TV. On the downside, and this may have been because it is very early in the season here, there was no brochure listing cable channels or local services as is often provided by quality campgrounds. Our $40 rate was the early-season rate for an unpaved full-hookup site.
I concur with the positive reviews of this site. The only reason I didn't rate it a 10 is because the spotlessly clean restrooms are a bit compact for the number of RVs in the park at peak season and because the park charges $1. per day per computer for WiFi, which worked reasonably well. This adults only park is very quiet, very clean and well maintained. It is close to Portland, Freeport (LL Bean) and other area attractions. We would definitely come here again.
The restrooms and showers here are very nice and well-maintained. There is a $2 daily fee for WiFi, which is discounted for monthly guests. The WiFi was fast with a strong connection. The sites are very wide with room for a tent or shelter as well as a tow vehicle and RV. Cable TV connection is very good. The only down side has to do with the unpaved interior roads which are quite hilly, rutted, and bumpy. This is not an RV resort but it is a quiet, rustic campground in the woods with mainy seasonal guests who take pride in their sites with gardens and various types of shelters.
I agree with the positive reviews of this park. It is a well-run, clean and pretty little park with 37 level gravel sites and a wide paved road. We've been here twice and would certainly stay here again. Wi-Fi works fine, cable TV is okay with a limited number of channels. Supermarkets and Wal-Mart are a few miles away. Great bird watching and fishing from their own dock, and access to open water from their boat ramp on Indian Bayou. Avalon Blvd. is a free section of a toll road to the beach, and traffic noise is minimal even though the park is close to the road.
This is a new park, opened in 2009. Gravel sites are big enough to keep our fifth wheel hitched for our one night stay, but you will have to do some leveling. Park is located on a hilltop on the edge of town with great views of the desert and great sunsets. Owners and staff are friendly and helpful. The bathroom facilities are clean, but quite limited--a single full bath for men, and a single full bath for women. If you really gotta go, and someone's taking a shower, you'll have to wait. No cable TV but the park is in a great spot for satellite reception and the regular antenna picks up a few stations. Walmart, grocery shopping and restaurants are near by.
This is a well cared-for RV Park with all of the amenities you could ask for. One surprising bonus was the many citrus trees throughout thr park, which provided us with fresh oranges for breakfast. I assume this bonus is seasonal. The site was big enough to not feel cramped, and had adequate room for the tow vehicle. The park has a decent restaurant on-site, good laundry and bath house facilities. Other reviewers commenting on airplane and railroad noise must have very acute hearing. The trains and planes were barely noticeable. The adjacent, co-owned Beaudry RV Center is the largest RV service facility in Arizona. We were able to have technicians come to our site to evaluate our needed repairs, and didn't bring the rig into the service center until the work was ready to be done. This was clearly one of the best RV Resorts we've utilized and will definitely return.
This is an extremely well run RV park. We were there during Thanksgiving and the park put on a Thanksgiving dinner for campers who had no where else to go. The park provided the turkeys (free of charge) and guests brought side dishes. The lake is clean and usable, there's a cafe on site serving decent, reasonably priced meals, and both the Wi-Fi and cable TV worked fine. One quirk was that the gate is locked a midnight, so if you know you'll be out late you need to request a key card to get back in to the park. Overall, we enjoyed our stay there and would definitely return.
Although this campground is located at the Lajitas Resort and Spa, it is named Maverick Ranch RV Park. If you like the desert, this is the place for you. It is located between Big Bend National Park and a huge Texas state park, and it is by far the best private campground in the region. The area is about as isolated as you can get--the closest Wal-Mart, we were told, is 100 miles away. The facilities are terrific, including one of the nicest bath houses we've seen. The resort has a decent restaurant, and there are a handful of other restaurants within several miles. Groceries, propane, gas/diesel are about 10 miles away, although the resort does have a small store. On the downside, the Wi-Fi is very slow, and many sites don't have a TV hookup, which we were told by the host was iffy at best. The resort has a golf course, an equestrian center, and all sorts of outdoor activities are available on site or nearby. The rates were also quite reasonable. We found our stay there very relaxing and we would definitely stay here again.
