We stay here twice a year when attending the NHRA Drag Races. We travel in a 45' motorhome and this is the closest to the track with sites that can accommodate our length and width. There is talk that the area itself is unsafe but we have never felt unsafe in this park. The only suggestion we would make is that they make sure their trees are trimmed enough. The people who run it are great. The sites are level and clean.

We are full time RVers and have traveled Canada and the USA extensively and this park by far is probably the nicest park we have stayed in especially for Canada. All lots are cement and have 30 or 50 amp power, water, sewer and cable. Wi-Fi is an extra charge but that is common through our travels. The hot tub was shut down while we were there for repairs but the pool was beautiful. The fitness center does not have much in it and it was very hot in the office area and fitness room as I don't think the air-conditioning was turned on. The park is a Co-ownership park and they are very friendly and helpful. In reading the previous reviews I must comment that they are probably not seasoned travelers as the park is not overpriced as they say. Rates throughout the BC Interior are much higher than $48. One park we stayed at in Ossoyos wass $95 per night, not as nice and another was $75 in the Kelowna area.

We visited here this past weekend for an RV Rally. They were able to accommodate all 35 of us in roughly the same area. Our rig is 45' long and we were able to maneuver very well. All the connections were easily accessed and we were able to park our toad in front. The WiFi was pretty good most times - except at peak times, but that is normal. We are in an all electric coach and always require 50 amp service. There was no problem. Because of the overly hot summer this year, ants and wasps are a problem in the entire southern part of BC. The Resort had wasp catchers hung in most of the trees but we never Happy Hour or eat anywhere outside without our zappers close at hand. I might add that at this Resort, this is not merely a pool and not just for Resort guests. It is a public hot springs. I thought the fee was comparable with others in the area and it is by far the most beautiful hot springs pool we have encountered. Except for a maintenance person who was a little grumpy, we found our stay most enjoyable. Plus the new foot bridge just opened and that is a big help.

We decide to stay at this park for the month of December as it's a base to fly home for Christmas. The rate I put in my review is based on the monthly rate. Electricity for a monthly stay is $.15 per KW. This is a very nice park and the people in the park are very friendly. Every Sunday they put on a breakfast in the clubhouse for $5 and on Wednesday's they put on a dinner for $8. The pull-through lots are very long (approx 75')and wide (approx 40'). They have two great pools and a hot tub. I spoke with the owner and he said he built this park 3 years ago and is still busy building cabins. He said he will have 90 cabins when complete. I would highly recommend this park.

When we arrived in the Kemah TX area we did not have an RV reservation anywhere but Marina Bay RV was our first stop. We then spent a couple of hours driving around from Kemah to Galveston Bay looking at about 9 different RV Parks. In the end we came back to Marina Bay as in our opinion it was the nicest of the parks. We stayed for 8 days and would definitely return. The park has level concrete pads and grass and is an exceptionally clean park. We attended the Thanksgiving dinner put on by the park who cooked the turkey and the ham. Everyone else who attended brought a side dish and it was excellent. They also have a pizza and wine night on Tuesday's. There are a number of people who use this park as a work base but are very friendly. The park is central to any shopping one might like to do. Great Park!!

This is an excellent park. We stayed here in December 2010 over New Year's and again this November. Our kudos to the owners for the great changes they have made to the park in the past 11 months. It gives you hope for the recovery of New Orleans. They have added palm trees and rock gardens between the sites. They also have a proper little marina with water and electric. They have also built a houseboat that you can rent as well as a couple of cottages. Well Done! It's kind of nice to be surrounded by million-dollar yachts! We used our Passport America which gave us a rate of $33.00 There is still a shuttle service which takes you to the French Quarter for $4/person round trip, 3 times a day. The outdoor (covered) bar/restaurant that serves great pizza is still there and even the same bartender. We'll stay here again - regardless of the price.

We stayed at this campground in January 2011 and again in November 2011. There have been no improvements made to this campground. This is a good place to stay if you visit Graceland. There were several permanents along the edges that were pretty much unkept. The sites are fairly level but they require maintenance so that they are not mud when it rains. The price is too high for what you get. The next time we are in Memphis we will try a different campground. The two good thing is that there is security 24 hours a day plus shuttles come to the park.

Ocean Lakes was a very nice campground, and the sites were wide and long with cement pads. There was also a good snack shop restaurant inside the park with good food and was well priced. We rented a golf cart in order to get around the park as there are a total of 3437 sites although only just under 900 are for transient RV's. Security was good as they were constantly driving around at night. They also made sure each vehicle had a pass before they could get in the park. One negative is that the water in the park is from a well and full of minerals which makes it very slippery. I made the mistake of washing the bugs off the front of my coach which left hard water spots all over the front. I had to get out some wax to get rid of them. A word of caution, "DO NOT WASH YOUR RIG". This is one thing that the check-in people could tell you when you arrive. We would stay here again.

This was a nice park which was 15 miles from Honky Tonk Row in Nashville. Some of the sites are a little tight but we had the first one as you enter the park which could accommodate our 45' rig along with our car. This was one of the few parks that we were able to use our Coast to Coast card. They also accept Passport America. You can arrange a shuttle to pick you up at the park and take you to the Grand Ole Opry for $15 per person. They have a swimming pool here but it is not heated at this time of year. A hot tub would have been nice. We would certainly camp here again.

Timberlane was a very nice campground. Some sites can be tricky to get into due to the amount of trees and some trees required trimming so they did not touch the top of your coach while driving through. In my opinion $40 per night is high for the quality of this campground. I would have given it a higher rating if not for the price. It is very close to a truck stop for fuel. There is also an Amish Market within 6 miles of the RV Park and this was an awesome place to purchase meat. You do not want to miss this market if you stay at Timberlane. It was very close to Philadelphia and Atlantic City. We seen Deer and wild Turkeys in the park as well as Owls who hooted in the evening. We would recommend and stay at this park again.

Beach Rose was a very nice campground although a little tight. The owners where outstanding in assisting you getting to and out of your site. We could not get satellite access from our site #47, however the owner came over and gave us cable to plug in for cable vision. The park did not provide discounts during our stay. We would recommend and stay at this park again.

Pumpkin Patch was a very nice campground. Sites were quite wide and long and could accommodate your coach without having to unhook your tow vehicle. The park is a Passport America park which brings your nightly cost down to $19 at the time of year we stayed. There was also a very good restaurant adjacent to the park which served fantastic food and you get a 10% off coupon when you check in. We would recommend and stay at this park again.

This was one of the nicest campgrounds we stayed at in Canada while traveling across the country as we had an ocean front site. We did not have 50amp service at our site but that worked OK. The town of St. Andrews was very quaint and they also had a farmers market on Thursday while we were there. We would definitely recommend this campground and would stay here again.

We were very pleased with this park. The manager met us as we walked out of our coach and assisted the girl at check in to get us a 50amp site. We had a nice view of the River from our driver's side in site #67. We stayed for a week and got the 7th night at no charge. The owner of the park is currently in the process of renovating the park which will take a couple of years. They are creating "Resort" like lots throughout the park which will be wider, longer and will have patios. The manager is always walking around the park talking with people and making sure they are enjoying their stay. This a really nice touch. The roads could use some gravel to fill the pot holes especially when it rains. We hope to return to this park to see the re-development in the park. I would highly recommend this park if you are in the Fredericton area.

This was a nice campground and our site was a pull through amongst other Big Rigs. It is easy access of Hwy #2 and it was sunny while we were there so the roads in the campground were in good shape. The large pull-through sites are roomy. Its a great location to visit around Moncton and is close to shopping if that's your thing.

This is a very nice Passport America Park. It is also very close to Moncton tourist sites, downtown Moncton and shopping centers. We had a back-in site with full hookups and 50amp service which has been a treat from the normal 30amp which we have encountered at other sites. The sites are very wide (approx. 36 feet) and very deep (approx. 70 feet). The Wi-Fi was very strong where we were located in the park. Our Telus Wi-Fi device did not have very good service as the park is at the bottom of a hill. The owner/management were very accommodating. As this is a Passport America Park they only accept cash for for Passport America stays. We would definitely stay at this park again.

I would never stay nor would I ever recommend anyone to stay at this campground for the following reason, which I will elaborate on. When we arrived my wife was filling out the registration form and I told the lady we weren't sure if we would stay one or two nights. The lady behind the counter just continued to process the transaction as I passed her my VISA card and she promptly put it in the VISA machine and said that would be $32.77. I asked her if that included a discount for Good Sam. She said they don't take Good Sam but they do take CAA/AAA. I told her that I have my CAA card and she said its too late as the transaction was in progress through the VISA machine. I said that I would like her to cancel the transaction and re-process it with the 10% discount. She said she couldn't do that but if we decided to stay a 2nd night that she would discount both nights when I paid for the 2nd night. When I went back later that day the lady was not there and I dealt with someone else. When I told him that we would stay a 2nd night, I also told him that the lady told me that she would discount the 10% for both nights stay when I paid for the 2nd night. This guy said he wouldn't do this as management won't allow it. I was not amused at the attitude this guy had. I even sent a complaint to the email address listed on the web site that same day expressing my displeasure and I have received no reply. It is quite obvious that the owner(s) of this campground are more interested in $2.90 than keeping customers happy. This review is a heads up for anyone who chooses to stay at this campground that you should not hand your credit card over until you ask all questions. Most campground hosts ask if you have any camp cards that provide discounts but not this one. The owner(s) of Loch Lomond need to take a lesson(s) in "Customer Service". As a note on the campground, there are a large number of seasonals at this campground and the mosquitoes were ferocious.

This was a very nice Passport America Park. The people at check-in were very friendly and they had one of their employees guide us to our site. The sites are wide and long enough to accommodate 45' rigs. Their is a gate access key which you pay a deposit for at check-in which is good for added security. The roads to the RV sites are dirt and it creates quite a bit of dust. We would definitely camp here again.

This quite a nice park although the roads in the park leave something to be desired. It is all gravel and rock, with a lot of (larger) rocks are sticking up through the ground. There were some vehicles that went by our site and their mufflers dragged on the rocks. The sites have grass between them. It appears that they only have about three 50 amp sites. When we arrived and hooked the electrical we had 3 brown-outs within an hour of being there. I went to the office and the owner came out and said plug into the other 30 amp receptacle at the site as they are from different power sources. The second plug in worked OK for our all electric coach. As this was the last weekend of the year for the summer the park was very busy and there were lots of kids which was fine. The owner did fireworks on the Saturday night and he also did a Family Olympics on Sunday which was great for all the kids in the park. There is a 9 hole pitch and put course as well as mini-golf on the 50 acre site. There are a large number of seasonals in the park but they are mostly in the upper and lower back park sites. We were very pleased with the park and would definitely stay here again.

We discovered this park a year ago when we were in Halifax on a Canada/New England Cruise. It has 5 sites that face an ocean cove across the road from the RV Park. When we arrived in Nova Scotia we called and booked one of these 5 sites. This park has only had one owner who has owned this park for 50 years. He has a total of 200 acres of land; most is undeveloped. The owner is very friendly and he sits out front of the office and waves and talks to everyone. I had coffee with him a couple of times and learned a lot about the surrounding area. This RV Park is only about 10kms from Peggy's Cove and the Swiss Air plane disaster area. The park has 3 drilled water wells and the water is very good. You are also able to wash your coach at this RV Park which is a real bonus from other RV Parks. The 5 sites at the front of the park overlooking the ocean are very wide and long. There are only a few 50amp sites, but our site was only 30amp. This was adequate for our all electric coach. We would definitely recommend and stay at this park again.

This was a very nice park. When we called and made our reservation they said they had a 50amp site available which was available in 2 days so we would have to stay in a 30amp site for the first 2 nights. When we arrived the person at check-in apologized and said they didn't have any 50amp sites available as she was looking at the July calendar and not August. This worked out OK as they gave us a site directly behind the check-in and next to the laundry and washrooms, although we did not use either as we use our on-board facilities. The 30amp service has been the strongest we have encountered on our cross Canada trip at 125 to 127 volts. The site had a nice view of the valley and it was close to downtown Halifax (20 minutes). There were no trees at our site behind the office which is good for satellite service. The remainder of the park has lots of trees. The pool is very good and the owners were very friendly. We would definitely came here again.

This was a very nice park and is Big Rig friendly. We were provided with a pull-through site with 50amp service that was 100' long which was very easy to get in and out of. It was a great RV Park to tour the Cabot Trail and the town of Baddeck from. It had an on-site restaurant, pool, etc. The owners were very nice and thorough in explaining the campground and provided a map of the Cabot Trail and told us the things to stop and see. We did not use their facilities or Wi-Fi as we have this on board our coach. We would definitely camp here again.

This was a very nice RV Park and the owners were very friendly. The sites were the widest I have encountered for some time. All sites are back in sites. It was convenient to the Port Aux Basques ferry terminal both coming and going. If you like to go out for dinner there is not much near the campground. The one restaurant we wanted to go to (Wreckhouse Cafe) ran out of Jig's dinner at 6:05pm and we arrived at 6:15pm. The other restaurant we went to (Chicken Villa) closed at 6:30pm and we arrived at 6:37pm. We stayed at this campground on Aug 3rd and again on Aug 19th and stayed for two nights each time. We would stay here again.

This campground does not accept Good Sam as they are the closest campground to the Newfoundland Ferry Terminal! I guess the owner feels he has a captive market which he does. When we arrived there was a caravan in the park so he had to find us a site. Fortunately he gave us in my opinion one of the nicest sites as it had a magnificent view of the ocean and the valley. The sunsets were marvelous. There is an on-site RV Wash on site but it is expensive. This campground is about 20 miles from Sydney and is close to Fort Louisburg which is a must see attraction. We don't use campground facilities as we use our on board amenities. The owner and staff were very friendly. This is a nice campground but in future I would look around at other campgrounds who may accept Good Sam.

This was a very nice RV Park. Our site was facing the ocean which allowed us to see the various jet skis pulling tubers around. Thew bugs weren't too bad which allowed us to have campfires. They sell pizza by the slice or the whole pizza and it was excellent. The pool is quite large which accommodated the kids in the park. It was a convenient location on PEI to the Oyster Bridge Stock Car and Drag Racing track as well as central to go different directions for sightseeing. The park has many seasonal RV'rs which is fine as they leave some of the best sites for transient campers. I would return to this park.

We camped at Pine Hills RV for a week and we were very pleased with the RV Park. There are lots of units that are here for the entire summer as it appears that these people live within the area the rest of the year. There were lots of kids but was not an issue. They have a very large pool which is good for kids and they had fire wood for sale at a decent price for the quantity. We would recommend this park and we would return to this park for another stay.

This RV Park was a pleasant surprise. We un-hooked our car from our coach when we arrived in Shediac at the Information Center. We then drove around and looked at various RV Parks and discovered in our opinion that this was the nicest park available. There was lots of room between sites and we had a pull-thru site. The area we were in was just opened 3 months previous with 95 new sites. The maintenance people came around every day and emptied your fire pit if you had a fire the previous night. The owner said that he keeps 35 of his 138 sites available for overnight RV'rs. The summer residents at the park that we spoke with were very friendly. The owner of the park was very accommodating and very friendly and actually came around later with a brochure for a park where we were headed next. There is also a 9 hole golf course at this park. I would highly recommend this RV Park in Shediac NB.

This is a wonderful little campground right on the St. Lawrence River at Mont-Louis Quebec. Their are 53 campsites available most with 3 services but only 30amp power. If your coming from the Rimouski way I would recommend that you bypass all the campgrounds between Rimouski and here. They have a building with boutiques as well as an on-site cafe in the building where you check in. You can walk down to the St. Lawrence River from the campsite. Very nice!

This was a nice little park for only 18 sites. The owner was very friendly and accommodating. They have Wi-Fi at the park but it does not reach the pull-through site we were in but one can go the office and the Wi-Fi works very well there. There is also no cell service available at this park so you can't use your own wireless Telus modem. You are about 13kms outside of the nearest town. We walked down to the lake with our drinks and sat on the bench seat they have on the dock. It was a very nice setting.

The web site states that the rate is $29.95 to $39.95 (maximum). When we arrived they charged us $45 per night as they said they were putting us in the new sites at the top of the campground. When we got to the top they are so new that we were the first ones to use site #117. It has an absolute wonderful view of the St. Lawrence River and the sunsets are magnificent. The road up to the sites and the sites themselves are crushed rock. They haven't had the opportunity to put in grass yet so it is dirt when you walk out your door. They do not accept Good Sam as they said it costs them $1000.00 per year. The owner also said that not many American or English speaking Canadians come here so they did not want to spend the money for Good Sam. I think they are missing the boat on this one as they have drastically limited their camping audience. If you don't want to spend $45 there is a National Park (DU BIC) about 14kms. back on Hwy 132 and they charge $34.50 for electric and water.

We arrived here on July 1st (Canada Day) for three nights. One of the owners of the park had a very difficult time understanding English or maybe it's us as we don't speak French. They refused to accept our Good Sam Membership as he said it was a weekend. The park is quite nice with wide sites. They pick up garbage every morning. As it was Canada Day weekend and the park was full there were many RV's, Tents, etc. parked in many different directions. My personal feeling is that the $50 per night price tag is somewhat high considering they refused to accept Good Sam

This park is on the outskirts of Montreal right next to an RV dealer. The sites are of a decent width approx 25'. This park is mainly a park for people who spend their weekends there during the summer months. We were told we would be in the overflow and if that's where they put us it had full hook-up including 50amp. It also had a driving range attached to the park. It had an RV Wash bay that you could drive your rig into and also had a metal walk up steps to clean the roof. It doesn't wash the vehicle unless you use the wash brush which in my opinion defeats the purpose of the RV Wash. If they use the proper chemical mixture you could actually wash your rig with just the wand.

This park was a pleasant surprise considering it's a Municipal Park. The site we had was 3D8 and it was about 60 feet wide and about 80 feet deep. The gate is manned by security after 7pm which is a nice feature. My feeling that the $42 fee for not having sewer hookup is a little high. You could also have campfires at this park. It is close to anything one would want to do in and around Ottawa. They have one sewer dump either on your way in or out. This can get very busy upon checkout in the mornings which we encountered.

This park should not advertise itself as an "RV Resort". When we arrived it was raining and the road into the campground had pot holes and were full of water. This campground was completely mosquito infested.

This was a nice park about 15kms outside of Thunder Bay. It had a pool and hot tub which opens at 5pm. We don't use the facilities wherever we travel as we are self contained and prefer to use our own in our Motor Coach. If you are using a Telus HSPA Wireless Device you will not have any service in this area.

The park was quite a ways outside of Winnipeg but is on a great ring road around Winnipeg. The sites were very spacious and the best thing is that there were no mosquitoes. The owner of the park we were told spent a great deal of time ensuring that the park had good drainage and not having any standing water around. The owner of the park was extremely rude to two different RV'rs who were using water with a hose to wash the outside of their units. The rules state that their is no RV washing allowed however the owner could have used a more gentler approach to these RV'rs rather than yelling at them. He even told one guy that if he wanted to argue about it, that he would go get his money and he could get out of the park. It appears the owner needs to learn some serious people skills. The office staff weren't overly friendly either but I guess I know where they get it from.

We just started the first leg of our trip from British Columbia to the Maritimes and this was our first night. We pulled into this campground at 7:20pm and the owner/manager stayed open as we called ahead. When we arrived we were somewhat taken aback by the quality of the campground. Our pull-through site was beside an older travel trailer that has been here for sometime. Thankfully, it was dry that day or otherwise the campground would have been a mud hole. I feel that the $50 nightly rate is gouging the RV traveller based on the accommodation available. I certainly would never stay here again, nor would I recommend this campground to anyone. Very disappointing!!!

We made a request for a reservation over the internet and received a confirmation by email asking us to call when we were en-route. When we called about 40 minutes out, we were told that someone had given away our pull-through site but that they could accommodate us in a back in site. We were helped to our site and in our opinion the site was just fine as it had a level concrete pad. Upon check-in the owner showed us the map of things to do and see in the area, but unfortunately he did not have enough to give us one. We stayed for 3 nights. On Wednesday we went for a tour of the Poche Plantation Mansion which lasted about 2 hours and the owner was extremely entertaining. It was very well done and we were adequately informed of the ghost that may or may not appear during the tour. Sure enough about half-way through the tour the ghost appeared. At the end of the tour we had coffee and goodies in the kitchen where Miss Pat works. We used the hot tub one night and it was very nice.
