The entry road to this park could use some maintenance, but it is passable within the posted speed limits. The park itself is quite nice, with a variety of hiking trails, ball fields, swimming, etc. The electric-only campsites where we were, were spacious and easy to back in to since they were laid out at a 45 degree angle to the road. Verizon voice and 4G data reception was okay at about 3 bars, and satellite reception from the Dish Network eastern arc was good with a portable antenna that allowed proper pointing past the trees. Our roof dish did not work here. There were lots of kids around, but everyone we encountered was polite and friendly. We will stay here again when time permits.

PPA rate shown. The park is convenient to I-81 yet quiet, with only an occasional loud truck noticed. The sites are level gravel with no shade, but easy to get in and out of with big rigs. The office staff was friendly and the hookups are well located. Verizon voice and 4G data worked well here. This was pleasant midway stop on our trip south, and we will return.

Rate reflects our KOA card discount. We stayed overnight on our way south to Florida in January, with temps in the teens and snow on the ground, so I can't really speak to the overall appearance or condition of the sites. Our pull-thru site was level though, with easy in and out access. We were escorted to our site by one of the friendly staff. The hook ups were well placed, and we had a concrete patio that would have been more appreciated in warmer weather. The camp store is well stocked with RV supplies and food items, and the snack bar offers a nice selection of sandwiches, burgers, fried chicken, etc, all at very reasonable prices. Our Verizon data and voice service was solid, so we did not use the campground WiFi. We will definitely stop here again, hopefully in better weather.

This campground has a nice balance of a "wilderness" feel with modern amenities. The fairly large sites are packed dirt and level. The fire pits are made of local stone - hand set without cement, and are quite nice. The proximity to the nearby Plymouth attractions, the whale watches, museum, and of course "the Rock", make Pinewood a good vacation spot for families. About half of the campground is a designated dog section. The site utilities all worked well, with good voltage and water pressure. The Wi-Fi system only allows one hour per day at no charge, with additional hours requiring payment. Our Verizon cell and data service worked well though, so we did not try the campground Wi-Fi. Despite being close to many area activities, the campground is very quiet at night, and we would certainly stay here again.

The rate shown includes a 25% pre-season discount. This park is immaculate and very quiet. The new owners, Sun RV Resorts, are doing a complete remake of the buildings and roads. Most of the roads already have a well compacted base course of gravel and stone dust, in preparation for finish paving. Work is also underway to pave each site driveway, with most of the pull-throughs already having the base in place. The restrooms and showers are all new, and the new main building/office is nearly completed. An all new playground is also nearing completion, and work on a new pool is underway. All of the sites are quite large with fire rings and new picnic tables on most. The pull-through sites are long enough for the biggest rigs and the longest tows. The cable TV system offers a good assortment of channels, and works perfectly. The CampLink ($) WiFi service is excellent, with good speed and a solid signal throughout the park at reasonable rates. The Verizon cell signal is on the weak side, showing only one or two bars, but that of course, is not something the park management controls. The sites are water and electric only, but the park does have a couple of dump stations, and is currently offering on-site pump out service at no charge. A site survey is currently in progress to determine the requirements for FHU sewer service. This park is improving daily, and will surely be a "10" when completed. We will absolutely visit here again should we be in the area.

Western Village is a well maintained, clean park, and the staff is friendly and helpful. The free WiFi works well, but the OTA TV signals (no cable) are limited to the major networks. The weather was cold while we were here, so I can't comment on the pool or other recreational facilities, although they looked to be in good shape with a large pool and a nicely equipped playground. I would have rated the park a bit higher, but the "reasonably level" pull-thru site I asked for required 5 inches of blocking under the front wheels and jacks. We will likely stop here again for an overnight stop, as they are among the few parks in the region that are open year round.

This is one of the best KOA's we've visited. There are only a few lake front sites though. The staff is very friendly and helpful, and the free 20 minute wagon ride through a neighboring plantation on weekends is a nice touch. The our site was level, and the hookups well placed for our rig. The WiFi and cable both worked quite well. We will be sure to return here when we're in the area.

The price reflects a weekly charge less our KOA VKR discount. We stayed here for 9 nights, and had a great time seeing the area attractions. Our back in site was huge at about 40 feet wide, and had a large concrete patio. The cable TV service was good, and the WiFi was slow, but acceptable for general use. There are many seasonal residents here, and everyone we talked to was friendly and helpful about the area. There is a commercial airboat tour of the lake that operates from the park launch ramp area. Campers receive an extra discount, and the tour of the lake was fun and informative, with many birds, alligators, and even a few wild pigs spotted. The only negative we found was the annoying train whistles from the nearby tracks, both day and night. We will definitely stay here again.

Typical of most Escapees parks, the staff were very friendly and helpful. We stayed here for a week, and saw a few old friends and met some terrific new ones. The park is clean and well maintained. The hookups were well placed, and our site had a concrete patio, although not all sites do. The lack of cable TV and Wi-Fi were negatives for us, but our Verizon cell phones and data service worked very well. Our over-the-air antenna received 6 channels plus their sub channels, but the programming was limited with only ABC of the 3 major networks receivable. We will return here in the future.

We've stayed at Ft Chiswell several times, and we've never been disappointed in either the sites, the services, or the staff. This time, the water on one side of the park was turned off due to freezing weather, and we were given a choice of a water or no water site. Since our fresh tank was near full, we chose a no water site hoping it would be a bit more private with no close neighbors so we could sleep later in the morning. We were not disappointed. As other reviews have said, this park is close to I-81, but just over a ridge that blocks the road noise. The free WiFi is good, and the Verizon cell signal is strong. It's a great spot to stop for a night or two, although there is little in the area in the way of attractions. We will definitely stay here again.

The rate reflects our KOA Rewards Card discount. This KOA is very clean and well maintained. The staff is friendly and helpful. We were escorted to our pull-through site, and assisted with positioning for the utilities. The cable TV was excellent with 33 channels available. The WiFi was good, but not great, getting slower not surprisingly, as the park filled up towards evening. Our sites was large enough for our coach and toad, with no need to unhook. The spacing of the sites was generous, with no feeling of being crowded in. The free popcorn on arrival, and free waffle breakfast in the morning, are definite pluses. We would gladly stay here again.

The rate is the Passport America rate. This is a very nice and clean smaller park. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Our pull-through site was easy to access and level, with convenient hook ups. We had a fun view of the cattle and calfs in and adjoining pasture, a welcome change from staring at other RV's in the park. A few TV channels from Charleston are available over the air with careful antenna aiming, and the Verizon 3G cell and data service was good. The park WiFi was adequate for email and minimal surfing, but slow for any serious activities. We would stay here again.

Falling Waters is a good overnight stop, and would even be good for a few days of R&R. We were escorted to our site by the friendly staff, and the hook ups were convenient and easy to reach. The sites pull-through sites are two sites in line, and if you're in the rear site, getting out may be difficult until the front site occupant leaves. We mentioned we would be leaving early in the morning, so they made sure we had a front site. The free Wi-Fi was pretty good, but the Verizon cell signal was roaming at 1x speeds, even with our external antenna connected. We will stop here again.

This was our second visit to Timberlane since being here two years ago. Both times we have had pull through sites behind the pond where there is plenty of shade, and was appreciated in the 90 degree weather while we were here. Our site was an easy fit for our 33 foot coach and toad, and was close enough to level that our jacks did not have to do much more than stabilize the rig. A concrete patio pad and picnic table rounded out the full hookup amenities that include a good selection of cable TV channels. The Wi-Fi coverage has improved quite a bit, and more nodes are being added. The speed was still slower than our Verizon data service though. The park is very quiet at night, with only a very distant train passing by occasionally if you listen for it. We will stay here again when we are in the Philly area.

Robert Moses State Park is one of NY's best in my opinion. If select you select one of the sites with frontage on the St. Lawrence Seaway, you can watch the ships entering and exiting the Eisenhower Lock right from your campsite. Visiting the nearby lock in person (free) is even better though. The gravel sites are fairly level and spacious, and many are separated from the next site by trees and bushes, offering some privacy. The RV sites are electric only, but water spigots are plentiful and not far from any site. There is a two lane dump station that serves the entire park on the entry road, and that can get pretty busy on the popular departure days, such as a Sunday morning. The bathrooms/showers are clean and well maintained, and at least some include a separate family facility. Garbage is collected from multiple drop sites at least a couple of times each day. This park is very popular with families, and there are usually a fair number of kids and adults riding bicycles, or walking on the roads, so drive carefully. The over the air TV stations are few, and the heavily treed sites may be difficult for satellite service, but the more open sites should be OK. Our Verizon voice and data signals were about as strong as it gets, with a tower located within sight of our campsite. We have stayed here multiple times over the years, and we will definitely be back again.

The rate includes a pro-rated fee to Reserve America. This is a beautiful state park that's located on the shore of Lake Ontario, just 20 minutes away from Niagara Falls State Park and its wonders. There are a number of sites with a fantastic lake view on the 200 Loop. The electric only sites are level and spacious, with a picnic table and fire pit. Water spigots are spread throughout the park, and one is never far away. There is a dump station on the 200 Loop, and another one at the main park entrance. The camp store has the basics, but not much else. The staff is friendly and helpful. We definitely will return here when we're in the area.

The rate reflects our KOA club discount. Association Island is a relatively new KOA conversion, but has been in business for quite awhile, and the facilities are showing some age. The sites are clean and well laid out so you don't feel too cramped. Our site required several boards under the front jacks and lifting the front wheel off the ground to get level, but many other sites we looked at appeared to be closer to level. The hookups are well located for most RV's, and the WiFi signal was strong at our site, as well as reasonably fast. Our Verizon cell and data signals were also strong. When the wind blows from the wrong direction, there is a bit of a fishy smell that some may find objectionable, but this is an island in Lake Ontario. Most sites have at least a partial view of the lake, and the waterfront sites have a great view! We would stay here again.

This campground was well maintained, with pre-Memorial Day work still under way. There was a fairly steady procession of golf carts and other maintenance machines on the roadways while we were there. But they were not objectionably noisy and stopped before dinner time. Otherwise, this was a very quiet location, with no highway, train, or other noises to interrupt our sleep. The Wi-Fi here was one of the fastest connections we have ever experienced on the road! Verizon voice and data signals were strong as well. We would return here for an even longer stay than an overnight.

As others have said, this is a "use to be" resort. It's ok for an overnight if you're not too fussy about the landscaping. Our pull-through site had a pile of junk on it that appeared to the remains of a metal fire pit. The grass was long and trim areas around the utilities were even longer. The Interstate noise is constant, with a bump that sounded like thunder every time a truck hit it. The Wi-Fi works, but it's very slow. The Verizon voice and data signals were good. We would over night here again only if there were no other nearby options.

The rate includes a 15% Escapees discount. This small park is clean and well kept. The layout of the pull-through sites is a bit unusual, with two sites stacked end to end. If you have the end site, you're good to go out. The site behind you is stuck if you don't pull out first, unless the site next to you is empty and they can get around you. The Wi-Fi is strong, but slow, and the Verizon data signal is also slow here. There is only an independent TV station locally, unless you have satellite. The park is very quiet, and we stayed two nights to take a break from traveling. It was a good place to catch up on our reading. The owner is very friendly and helpful. We would stay here again.

The rate reflects a Good Sam discount. This is a nicely maintained, clean park, with many seasonal campers. The full hookup pull-through sites are easy to access, and the owner guided us to our spot. The sites are fairly level, but there are no fire pits or picnic tables. Many TV channels are available by antenna from Oklahoma City. The park Wi-Fi signal is strong, but not fast. Verizon voice and data signals are strong here. There is some road noise from nearby Route 66, but it's not that noticeable at night for sleeping. We overnighted here, and would return.

This is a cash/check only park, no credit cards. The park is adequate for overnight stops, with the utilities well located for most rigs. The road noise from nearby I-40 is nearly constant, but low enough to just serve as white noise when sleeping. The sites are level, and not much more than worn spots in the grass. There are no fire pits or picnic tables. About 6 sites are occupied by construction workers temporarily working in the area. The park has good quality well water. The free Wi-Fi was strong and worked well, and Verizon voice and data signals were also strong. This park was a bit unique, in that it was the first time we have ever registered in the owners' kitchen. They are a delightful couple! We would return here for an overnight stop.

The rate reflects a Good Sam discount. This park is a well laid out overnight stopping point. All sites are long pull-throughs, and the utilities are centrally located. The sites are basic, with no fire pits or picnic tables, but they are neat and clean. The club house was open when we arrived, and we were able to check in right at the park. The key deposit routine mentioned by others is a minor annoyance, but I didn't find returning the key to a slot in a locked box that troublesome when we left before the club house opened in the morning. The Wi-Fi was weak at our end of the row site, but Verizon's voice and data signals were adequate for our needs. The cable TV channels are few, but clear. We would stay here again as an overnight stop.

The rate includes our KOA Value Kard discount. The park is located a pleasant 50 mile drive from Grand Canyon Village and the south rim. The FHU pull through sites are spacious and easy to get in and out of with big rigs. The office staff is friendly and knowledgeable about the area. The free Tengonet WiFi is strong and the speed was acceptable during the day, but in the evenings it was intermittent. Verizon voice and data signals are not strong, but they are stable and usable. Cable TV was clear, although the available channels are limited. We stayed here for four nights while touring the area, and would return.

The rate reflects our Escapees discount. This is an exceptionally nice park given the near desert conditions in the area. There is no grass, and even the off leash dog run is graveled. The pull through sites are spacious enough for even the largest rigs. The owner is very pleasant and helpful, and the park store is fairly well equipped with RV items, food basics, and of course lots of souvenirs of the area. The Wi-Fi service was strong with acceptable speed, and the cable TV was clear with about 55 channels. Verizon voice and data service was also strong. We only stayed here one night, but we would willingly return for a longer stay.

The rate included our Escapees discount. This is a well maintained park that does its best to stay neat and clean in the windy near desert conditions typical of the area. The Wi-Fi signal was good, although somewhat slow. Verizon voice and data service was excellent. One oddity was that the cable TV service did not include the major networks, although they were available by antenna. This park is one of the few we've stayed at that has an on-site restaurant that delivers to your RV. Excellent BBQ! We only stayed one night, but we would return here in the future.

As others have said, this campground is basically just for overnight stops. When we checked in at the gas station/convenience store, we were given a list of open 30 amp (our choice, 50 amp is available) sites, and told to take our pick when we pulled into the park. The sites are minimal, but a few do have a shade tree or two. TV reception is good using local repeaters, and Verizon cell and data reception is excellent. There were several long term residents that are apparently working nearby on an oil rig, but they were not a problem. We will stay here again as an overnight only stop.

The rate reflects a $2 seniors discount. This small park has 18 back-in RV sites with water and electric (20/30/50 amp), and 70 tent sites. All of the RV sites have a view of the lake. The volunteer hosts are friendly and helpful, and they put a lot of work into maintaining a clean facility, despite state budget cutbacks. The Verizon data signal is useable, albeit a bit slow, but the voice service is solid. All of the major TV networks are available via antenna. We will return again when we are in the area.

The rate reflects the Escapees member rate, although the park is open to non-members if space is available. This is a very clean and well maintained park, about 2 miles from downtown Branson. The hosts are very friendly and accommodating. The sites are fairly level with a gravel base, with a mix of back-in and pull through sites. The hook ups are well located, and the 40 channel cable TV service was excellent. Although we didn't use it, TengoNet WiFi is available for a fee. The Verizon signal for our data card and phones was strong, with relatively fast 3G speeds. We will definitely return to this park whenever we are in the area.

The rate reflects a Good Sam discount. This is a well maintained and clean campground. The gentleman that checked us in was pleasant and helpful. He escorted us to our pull-through site and made sure we were satisfied. The campground is heavily populated by seasonal campers, but there is a very level gravel site area set aside for transients. Access with a big rig is snug, but doable without any stress. This was an overnight stop for us just off of I-70, and we will stop here again when our travels bring us this way.

This is a very well maintained and clean campground. The office staff were pleasant, helpful, and knowledgeable. We were escorted to our pull-through site and shown where the cable connection was located, which was not easy to see. The Wi-Fi was marginal, but usable. Verizon cell coverage was excellent.

This is a well maintained and clean campground. The young office staff were pleasant, helpful, and knowledgeable. We were escorted to our pull-through site, and other than making sure our toad cleared the access road, the escort did not make a big deal out of directing us, as some seem to find necessary. This was an overnight stop for us just off of I-90, and we will stop here again when our travels bring us this way.

We arrived at this CG by chance, not choice, when our RV broke down on I-75. The service shop in Corbin recommended it while we were waiting for repair parts to be shipped in. As it turned out, we were both pleased and quite thankful when the owners went above and beyond our expectations to make us feel welcome, and in accommodating our sometimes uncertain needs as parts delivery and repair schedules were firmed up. The park itself is immaculate, with all the facilities that others have mentioned working to perfection. The owners are exceptionally pleasant and helpful, and everyone gets an escort to their site and assistance with positioning. Were it not for some somewhat distant train horns and some road noise, I would have given this CG a 10. We stayed here for four nights in a motorhome, and will definitely return, the next time as a planned event.

Rate reflects an off-season Good Sam discount. This is a new campground that opened in May of this year. Some of the landscaping, etc., shows that, but should fill in well in time. The sites are fairly level, and the hookups are well placed. The staff person on duty was pleasant and helpful. The WiFi worked well, and there are plenty of local TV stations available from Buffalo. I would have rated this campground a little higher, but the pull through site we were assigned was too short to leave our toad attached to our 33' coach, and as best I could tell, none of the other pull throughs were much longer. We would stay here again.

Rate includes our Escapees discount. This is an overall nice campground, with fairly level sites and well placed hookups. Big rigs are a bit tight on the access roads, but it's doable. Our 33' coach with a toad was not a problem. The train noise is quite loud, but the night we stayed here, there were only two trains through during the late night/early morning, so our sleep wasn't disrupted too much. The WiFi was solid, and there were a number of local TV stations to watch. We would stay again for an overnight stop.

This campground is nicely laid out, and the photos on their website are quite accurate. We asked for, and got, a nicely shady pull-through site. The sites with the best view of the St Lawrence River though, are in an open field on a hillside. The WiFi service was extremely slow during our visit, so we used our cell service instead. There is an extra $4 charge per day if you want to run your AC, although we didn't need it on our shady site. We would stay here again.

This is a beautiful state park campground on the St Lawrence Seaway near the Eisenhower Lock. The sites are clean and spacious, with a fire pit and picnic table at each site. Most of the premium sites have a good view of the seaway, with ships passing by regularly on their way between the ocean and the Great Lakes. There is no water or sewer available at the individual sites, but there are communal spigots throughout the park, and a dump station along the entry road. A visit to the Eisenhower Lock is highly recommended, and it's free.

We spent 3 nights at Timberlane, and were very pleased overall. The sites are clean and level, with a concrete pad for the picnic table. A fire ring is also provided. There is a lovely pond with ducks and geese that wander the park freely, along with a number of wild turkeys. There are a number of seasonal campers, but they're well spread out with no permanent decks, etc., allowed. The location is near I-295, but far enough away to be very quiet. WiFi is available at the office, but not at the sites. Cell phone reception is excellent. The campground management is very pleasant, and they do enforce the rules as they should. Our only complaint would be the lack of a dog walk area near the rear of the campground near the pond. The single area at the front is a long way to ask a pet to keep their legs crossed.

Typical of Escapees campgrounds, the staff is super friendly and helpful. The 30amp gravel pull-thru sites are a bit closer together than we like, but the setting is nice with some shade trees. Tengo Wi-Fi Internet has been added this year, and the cost is reasonable given the low cost of the sites. There are three hiking trails available on the property with a map available in the office. A large fenced in, off-leash dog run area is available for four-legged guests, and a nice playground for the smaller two-legged guests. We stayed for a week and will stay again when we're in the area.

This campground is nicely kept up with a friendly staff. The water/electricity pull-thru site we were escorted to, was not very level: requiring the use boards under two jacks. There are a large number seasonal campers, and those we passed were quite friendly. The Wi-Fi Internet service is only available within a short distance of the office, and does not reach the campsites. We stayed one night and would stay there again.

We overnighted here, and were very happy with the friendly management and well maintained facilities. The new owners bought this campground last year. The WiFi signal was very strong even though we were in one the farthest sites from the office. I would have given them another notch up on their rating, except for the lack of cable TV service. A number of channels are available over the air though, from nearby Rochester, NY.
