The only reason they do not get a 10 from myself is because I reserve those for the most luxurious parks in the country, paved roads, concrete patios, profession landscaping, iron furniture, etc. With that said, we have traveled all over the United States in our Motor home. This KOA is one of our favorites when we are in the Northeast. It is in a nice country setting in Vermont, the owners are very nice and accommodating, the sites are large enough for our 43 foot RV, with plenty of with between sites, the bath rooms are clean and the price is fair. Although its tough to get satellite reception due to the trees, the setting makes it worth going without. We go here several times a year as do many others as repeat campers.
This park for us is a gem!! Nineteen at night is with PA discount and also included $3 additional for 50 amps. It's 20 plus miles of the NY thruway. I was only going to stay a night and did not want to make the trip, but when we got there we stayed for 2 nights, I would have stayed more if we had the time, the campground is up very high. Our site overlooks the Adirondacks Mountains, site 50. We are kind of in a field with full hookups along with about 8 other sites. I wanted an open site for satellite. We also have a 43 foot motorhome, The owners are very nice and very hard working. The campground is well kept and is over 160 acres. They have a pool, small rec room with a pool table, large open fields, fire pits and a golf driving range! This place is out in the middle of no place and is very peaceful. A really nice country campground. I am a bit concerned here in the field if it rains a lot about getting stuck, but that has not happened! And we are very happy we came here. O ya, NY kills you with there 8% sales taxes and tolls.
Yellowstone Holiday RV Park, West Yellowstone, MT, June 26 to July 11, 2013, 15 nights, $46.20 per night avg, Inc, all taxes. Worth the extra drive! A nice, small park. We booked this RV Park instead of booking another one we have stayed at before but wanted a change. Not knowing exactly what to expect when we entered the park, we were pleasantly greeted, checked in and escorted to our site # 17. Upon getting to our site we were very happy; the sites in the back section are very large and level, with shrubs, not trees, so perfect satellite reception, perhaps as much as 45 feet wide, nice lawn, excellent utilities and very clean. You will have views of the lake and the mountains. Upon request they will deliver a fire ring to your site. The laundry and the rest rooms are very clean.. The drive to West Yellowstone is 12 miles, but with 70 MPH roads it’s quick. For myself 5 star campgrounds are reserved for paved roads, manicured landscaping, pools and hot tubs and perhaps restaurant and a bar. I have given 5 stars in the past but am a bit stingy with them now. I rate this as a 4 star. Try not to get sites in the # 30’s behind the cabins on the lake. They are much, much smaller and do not have the views. We stayed here in a 43 foot motorhome in site 17; any site 1 to 20 would be fine. The premium sites on the water may be worth the extra money if you are here for a short time. We would return. This is a really nice park with real nice host, (work campers).
6/10/13to 6/17/13 -$ 33 per night This is a nice camp ground, quite, clean, well maintained and wonderful host. Two heated pools, paved roads. Most sites are shaded. I would estimate that only about 30% of sites will receive Direct TV due to the shade trees. The price we paid may have been special price due to Rally pricing. Back in sites are larger and shaded, however, they seem to be slightly sloped. The pull through sites for large motor homes are way to close together in my opinion, not enough room for a table and you cannot put out your awnings in most of these sites. Not too good for family camping or spending time outside on your campsite. I do not think I would be happy in one of these sites if I was staying for more than a couple of days We stayed in site “K” pull through and I would highly recommend it, if it is available. It’s an end site, very close to the site on your right (only about 7’ apart), but on the drivers side it’s a large space on a corner with a picnic table, nice grass, a view of the petting area and a nice view of the mountains and the meadow, Plenty of room to spread out. Satellite will work if dish is mid to rear of coach, but not the front due to a nice tree. The only drawback is that it is close to the main road of the campground and mobile home park in the rear of the CG. That was a very small price to pay for such a nice site. I cannot give it 5 stars because those are reserved for the very best, tight sites hurts. I am giving them an 8, because I was very happy with our site. If I had been in another site for a week, I may have given a 5 or 6 due to the closeness of the pull throughs.
$22 per night for out of staters with water and electricity, $17 for dry camping, a real bargain. This is a real nice park. Many, many very large sites, not all of them are level. So large motor homes may find themselves a little out of level, but will fit for sure in most sites. (We are 43 feet.). Large trailers should not be any problem. Sites are very large and have concrete patios in the electric section. Pit toilets only, no showers, one dump station. Most of this park is dry camping, campsites are sparsely, scattered around the lake. It offers 35 miles of hiking, biking, jogging trails with moderated hill climbing. It's rustic, scenery is beautiful. It is a ten is many respects, but not so in others, but I would differently return.
Manor RV Park Estes Park, CO - $300 a week + tax / 45 per night. We stayed at this park in a 43 foot motor home. We stayed here for one week May 22to May 29, 2013. We were pleasantly greeted and escorted to our site #91. I must say that upon arrival at our site we were a bit dismayed due to the closeness to the next RV - we had exactly 7 feet between our RV slide and the next RV’s slide. Picnic table is practically right under there slide and up close to there sewer hose, not enough room to put out our awnings, not enough room to even use the table, we felt we had to whisper in our own RV. Defiantly not a good site for family, or eating out or anything other than sleeping. Upon seeing the other sites I had asked to get another site, preferable on the river. The gentlemen immediately went to the office to check availability for us, they were all taken since it was Memorial Day week. I must also say that there are many nice sites at this park with a bit more room, we did not land one. Our intention was to go to the Rocky Mountain National Park, in which case we did not spend a lot of time at the campground. I will also say that the nicer sites along the river are probably worth the extra money. The internet is very good and the laundry and restrooms are clean. Although every one in the camp ground can use the “Public” area along the river, they have several access paths between RV sites on the river, approximately 30 to 40 feet between the river to the back sides of other campers - we did utilize this option. We enjoyed it a lot after a day of hiking, bringing our chairs, a small table, cheese, crackers and wine, not a problem and it was very nice, We had 50 amp power, it was very good and up to date, no voltage drop right at 123 volts. I would say do not go to this park unless your are there for the National Park 1 ½ miles to entrance, and about a mile or so to the downtown Estes Park. There are no real amenities at this park, other than location, location, location, location. The park is quite. We would return, but ask for a larger site.
We stayed here for 12 days in a 43 foot motorhome. Our first site was down near the club house. I did not like it at all, first off our satellite dish was hitting a tree, second there was a slight gradient when we stepped out of our RV and after a good rain, it turned to mud, Our RV was a mess after two days, Also the sites are very close, too close for my own comfort. I asked to be moved to the top of the hill and we did - or us it was like a whole new camp ground, more space, quite from the road, lots of sun, open sky for our dish. I was very satisfied with our new site B7. And for this reason we stayed for an additional 5 days. The campground is very well kept, very clean. The rest rooms, club house and laundry rooms are excellent. The fitness room, although better than most campgrounds because most have none, could be larger and have more and better equipment. The manager whom I have forgotten his name was also very friendly and helpful, always cheer full as was the men working around the grounds. The ladies in the office - not quite so much. They may need a little hospitality training. For such a nice campground in a metropolitan area, I was surprised they did not have a security gate, although it was not needed. I walked and jogged a lot and there is the Jefferson County trails not far from the campground. Also, the new train is a short walk or drive from here, 2 bucks gets you into Denver with free parking. THIS CAMPGROUND WILL NOT ACCEPT MAIL OR PACKAGES on behalf of its guest under any circumstance, hard and firm, not exceptions. They charge you $15 to wash your RV, just a bit high, but I was happy to be able to to it at all, lots of campgrounds will not let you at all. I would rather be able to pay and do it than not.
This park is brand new. It has beautiful large sites with concrete slabs large enough for both the RV and Patio. (We are 43 feet.) It comes with charcoal grills and a fire ring and picnic table all roads are paved. the owners have put a ton of money into the park and it shows. It has a beautiful kidney shaped pool, small exercise room, very clean tiled bath rooms and showers, laundry room, boat rentals and a friendly staff. The only reason I did not give it a 10 is that the park being so new does not have the matured trees and landscaping other parks have that have earned a 10. In a few years time the park will get a 10 but for now the landscape needs to mature. It is close to Hot Springs and has plenty of golf courses near by.
First let me say that we paid $234 for a week. We had a front row site on the river. The sites are very large and level. We have a 43 foot motorhome I would suggest to park towards the back of the concrete pad allowing yourself to have a very nice and large concrete Patio in the front of your RV. The people are very friendly. I had a flat on our tow vehicle and the maintenance staff fixed it for me with a plug. I did tip him well although it was not even expected I am sure. I have and will stay here again. There is not much to do here for the kids. It is very convenient to Memphis, but yet it is out of the city.
For the money $18 per night you cannot get a better deal. No pool, hot tub, Internet or other amenities, that is why I did not give it a 10 On top of that people are friendly, Sue in the office made a reservation for us over the telephone $3 additional charge., We arrived on a weekend and office were closed, camp ground host meets us and assigned us a site, very helpful and friendly did not get his name. CG is right on the river, it is quite and nice, full 50 amp services up to date utility's WS&E. The sites are very large or I should say some of them are. We are in a 43 foot motor home and we are located in the "open section" Approximately 10 sites or so very large sites, large enough for the largest of Motor homes, open as in no trees and level , 40 feet between sites paved roads and sites and patio with table is on concrete. Many of the sites are in a treed area, I am not sure if 43 foot RV could fit on them, surly not on all of them perhaps some, be sure to inquire.
Many people would give this park less than a 7 however, I was very happy here. We have a 43 foot motor home and granted the sites on the hill top were too small for our rig, I would not have been happy there at all. In fact we were, then we asked to move to a site on the bottom of the hill. I am so glad it was open. Site number 1 was large, flat, on the end, and shaded, but we got our satellite to work. Site 1 faced the sewer dump station, but that got very little use and was not a problem in any way. I think sites 2, 3 and 4 would have been ok also. It did only have 30 amps and it was real hot out (93 degrees), so we had to rotate our AC's and used the diesel hot water instead of electric, but we were close to a large pool in which I loved. It is located just outside of the Shenandoah Park which is real nice, since that is what we were here for. The people are friendly. We signed in for 2 nights but wound up staying 4 nights. The park was a KOA, it is becoming a little run down, but for me it was just fine: due to our site and the pool.
This park is a real nice park, clean and neat, it was built in 1995. The front sites have concrete pads, however for our 43 foot RV they are too small in width. Our RV fit perfectly on it, but very little space was left for our own enjoyment on it. The doors on the RV could not be opened without moving the picnic table off the pad to the front of the RV onto the stone driveway, my preference would be to have the RV site on crushed stone and have a nice concrete patio to enjoy. the concrete sites would be nice for a trailer, without slides and doors on the right side. Perhaps the park was build before the age of large RV's. The park has a security gate, not sure why it is necessary because the area seems safe and secure. The park is close to the Smokey mountain entrance and Cades cove. It has a laundry and a small store. Its a quiet park with not to many kids, perhaps due to it not having a pool. I would not be paying any extra for a river site. They are across the road from the river and you can hardly even see it through the trees. Plus they are located on the main road leading out of the park, so they must get a fair amount of road dust. This park is rated 5 star, but due to no pool or hot tub, no fire pits: I would only give it a 4 star. It was very hot when we stayed.
When we arrived we were pleasantly greeted, after check in we were escorted to our site by a young man. The site was plenty large for our 43 foot RV and our car. All of the front sites are brand new, power and water is all up to date, easy in and easy out. There is a small strip of green grass well maintained between sites. The salt water pool was a real treat for myself: open 10 to 8. In addition, they have a very small building, in it includes a treadmill and bike and a like step machine. In addition, they have a tanning bed for an additional 3 dollars. We stayed here for 3 nights. We visited the space museum in Huntsville about 40 minutes away, and the store of re claimed airline baggage ( over rated). The only drawback to this camp ground is it is close to route 72 and you get the traffic noise. But for traveling through and taking a break for a few days at a very fair price, it is perfect!! It is an easy 4 star park and in my opinion better than some 5 star rated parks we have stayed at.
This is a great campground, for us any way. We had an end site with tons of room. Some, I did notice were back-to-back sites with doors facing doors. I can see how they would be tight. They also had very, very private sites with fences, tables and "PRIVATE hot tubs." Had I known about these sites, for sure I would have reserved one for us. We were 4 adults in a 43 foot RV, not real sure about the rate. The owners from Scotland are very nice and very involved. The hot tub and pools are very nice. Lots to do here with kids. This is a park worth staying at. Be sure to have good directions as there are no typical KOA signs from the town center, due to town ordinances.
This is a real nice park, only about 8 years old. The owner and his wife are very pleasant people who have a lot of pride in their park. They build it and they are proud of it and so they should be. It's level, easy to get around, has tons of tall pine trees, all paved and extremely long sites as in perhaps 80 to 100 feet. You cannot get satellite here, but this man has installed DirecTV dishes all around the park and will loan you the cables to connect up to them. He will rent you a DirecTV box if you want. He is most helpful. He also allowed us to wash our RV which I appreciated much. I would recommend this park to everybody. It is very suitable to large motorhomes. It is quiet and priced fairly.
I cannot recommend this campground. We were in a 43 foot RV, the site we had barely fit our RV and did not fit our car. It was tight and expensive with poor 30 amps power. At times only 103 volts, had to run our generator to use the microwave. The worst part for me was the road noise, as much to my surprise our site was only 50 feet from route 101, separated by a set of bushes. Had road noise from 6 am to 11 pm. The park was nearly full except for approximately 10 premium sites which were all 50 amp back ins, not too much further from the road, but level and open for satellite TV. I did go to the office and complained about the noise. I asked to be moved to a more level site and one further from the road. All but one of those premium sites were empty. The nice girl said all sites were full except for those premium sites (which were hard packed stone, back ins and had a cement patios). She said they were a few bucks more, so I asked how much more. Ready for this? She looks at her paper and says to me with a straight face: "$87 dollars per night." I refused the site, what a total rip off this is. That explains why those "premium" sites were all empty except for an occasional overnighter, who would be gone the next day! The park did have a hot tub. I love hot tubs but this one is not to appealing, stuck behind a building, enclosed by a chain link fence. This park is close to the Olympic Park and that is the only thing it has going for it in my opinion. If you do not mind the noise, do not want satellite and can deal with 30 amps, there are some nice sites. But at 50 bucks, it's still way overpriced.
This park is hidden gem: at 25 bucks a night it's a steal. The roads and sites are paved, If you are in a large RV ask for sites G, H, or I. They are all paved, back in sites but much wider than most. The older section is very nice but built for smaller campers w/o slides, so they can be tight. Most sites will get satellite TV but not all of them. All sites are paved and the lawns are very well kept. It's right on the river and a very short drive to Chief Joseph Dam and only 38 miles to the Coolie Dam. This place is also a fisherman's paradise. It's part of a municipal park but closed to the public at night time. It's quiet and the hosts are very nice. I would suggest calling for reservations to be sure they have room.
I wanted to write about this campground because it has many bad reviews, mostly about farm odors due to it being in the country side. We stayed in a 43 foot RV, we asked for an end site due to them being larger and having a swing, and at the time there was four adults. The park is very well kept, we did not have any odors, the "end" sites are about 6 dollars more and only have 30 amps, we did not need AC so that was fine. The employees were very good to us, allowing us to remain in the HOT TUB a little after hours, the park is clean and quiet. It's expensive at $70 a night but all KOA's are expensive.
This is a nice clean and quiet park, sites are 55 feet long and are all cement. The roads are all paved, grass is well kept. The pool is not heated, we did not use them as they are a fair distance from our coach and it is cool outside. There is a camp store here and plenty of shopping nearby, we stayed two nights and would stay here again if "Traveling through." I would not want to spend my vacation here only because there is not much room outdoors. The very small space you do have, is very well kept with lawn. We have a 43 foot motorhome. Our car has to be parked along side of the RV, which makes it very, very close as the sites are very small, we had to remove picnic table in order to make room for the car. We have to open and close the heavy RV door each time we go out to the car, not enough room to get by when it was open. The park seems to be filled with long term workers and people or workers living in very large trailers. (I guess provided by the park.) There are no beat up trailers, and the place is neat. People do not have the trailer trash junk all around like some older parks do. These folks seem to be long term campers here for work with homes else where. They have been polite and quiet to us, no complaints.
The park is nice and clean, we are here in a 43 foot motorhome, they have and we have about 1 of six sites large enough for us, they are back in level sites with tall shrubs on both side, it is very nice and private, the price is expensive at $70 per night, but again you get what you pay for and here it is all about location,location,location we are walking distance to the dunes and a short drive over to Pebble Beach, my only real complaint is the noise, we are backed right up to a busy highway RT 1 , it is so loud I need ear plugs to sleep, the traffic starts to really roll at about 5:30 to 6 am and continues to midnight, days are not all that bad because we are up but the nights are a little hard, again its about location. There is no pool or hot tub as advertised they charge $8 for a very small bundle of wood, so bring your own if you can.
This park was less expensive than others in the area, the old saying applies, " you get what you pay for" The park is old and run down, there are tress but they are over grown and will rub the sides of the RV on some sites, some people live there and have tons of junk in and under there trailers, some trailers are old and beat up, it is not very appealing, the pool is not heated so it is closed most of the time or is un-usable. The thing that bugged us the most is that at 5:30 am some guy gets up to go to work (lots of workers here) ( I I am guessing a worker or some really bad camper) goes outside and starts his diesel truck and runs it for 20 minuets I guess to warm it up, heaven forbid that it was was 55 degrees outside and he might freeze to death, if that is not bad enough at least 6 times he or she went out and opened and slammed the vehicle doors, and I mean slammed them, zero regard for other campers.
This park is real 5 star, and it is a 5 star plus park. It has paved roads with hard packed stone sites and beautiful landscaping, heated pool, hot tub and large and very clean men, lady's rooms, laundry's and an exercise room, laundry and exercise rooms have flat screen TV's. This campground also has a full bar and a restaurant. The food here is excellent, so good in fact the locals come here to eat and have happy hour, the owner and his wife are very friendly people and who have much pride in their park. And it shows every where. If you are traveling through Bakersfield and want to drop anchor for a few days or a week, this is a great place to stay, I myself stayed for 10 days and loved it.
Perfect for large Motor Homes and other self contained units. There are no bath rooms or amenities other than Ice and wood. Its right on the ocean (a very short walk) and the river. The scenery is beautiful. The sites are very large, and can accommodate the largest of Motor Homes. The constant breeze from the ocean keeps things cool. My only complaint is that they charge 15 bucks per person ! 30 bucks a couple For a visit, even if that couple is just there for dinner. Seems a little excessive to me, especially for a state park. O Ya if you want a site, July, Aug and 1/2 of Sept, you need to make reservations 11 months to the minute in advance. The overflow, no utilities, is the pits!! less than 20 feet apart, gen sets running all the time, people do not use gen stacks. Field is a swamp when it rains.
