This is a beautiful campground in a rustic setting in the mountains of NC. They have cabins, tent sites, and RV sites, and we saw all three in use. All are heavily shaded. A small but active creek runs through the campground providing wonderful background sounds. Our RV site, #74, was especially nice as the creek ran behind the site (the back of our motorhome jutted out over the creek) and then curved around our camping side where we had a private wooden deck over the creek! Some of the sites are small - our driver's side slide is about three feet away from touching our neighbor's awning. The staff was very friendly and helpful. It's just a few miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway and there are many places to go hiking nearby. There's a real sense of community in the campground, other campers out and about, interesting in chatting, etc. The drawbacks for us were the lack of any open space to play with our dogs, and the lack of Wi-Fi. They have a hotspot in their office which you can use for occasional connectivity. AT&T coverage is poor, Verizon is moderate, but with our 4G booster we were able to get good connections with both. We received no over-the-air TV channels, but the campground does offer cable TV for a daily fee.
This campground has a lot of potential, and a few drawbacks. The sites are extremely large and are mostly pull-throughs. The river that runs around the campground is nice, and our dogs loved going for a swim in it every day. The tent sites along the river looked nice, and there was a very large field where we could walk the dogs. The staff was friendly and helpful. One drawback is the campground's proximity to I-81, just a few hundred yards away. The noise from the highway was audible day and night. We stayed for a week, and for most of that time the campground felt like a ghost town. Most of the sites had an RV in them (seasonal, I assume), but we rarely saw another person - the RVs were just parked there. That did however mean that the Wi-Fi worked quite well during the week! The seasonals did start coming during the weekend, making for a more interactive environment (and slower Wi-Fi). The trees in the sites are still young and small so the campground does feel somewhat like a parking lot. In a few years when the trees are bigger, the sites will feel more cozy.
This small RV park is in a great location, just a few blocks walk into the tourist part of Intercourse PA. It's across the street from an Amish farm, so be prepared for all the smells that come with farms! The Wi-Fi worked pretty well, and we received all the usual over-the-air TV channels with our antenna. They have portable fire pits you can borrow to have a campfire. Sites are a little on the small side. They have a small dog park area only for one family at a time. Owners are friendly, neighbors are friendly. It's a good central location to visit various parts of Lancaster County.
This rate includes the Passport America discount on 4 of the 7 nights we stayed. Very nice campground with extremely friendly owners and staff. They answer any questions you have and will give lots of great suggestions on tourist attractions. The campsites are extremely spacious, there is a lot of space between RVs which gives a nice sense of yard. The wifi worked great during the week but slowed down during the weekend when it was more crowded in the campground. There a large field to walk your dogs and a nature path near the brook. The campground is about 10-12 minutes from Red Hook and 20 minutes from Rhinebeck. The campground does have a visitor's fee for anyone who comes to visit you, even if they don't use any of the facilities (pool, minigolf, playground). Also our pad was a mix of gravel and dirt but with all the rain, the pad was a bit soft and we found our leveling jacks/boards were slowly sinking into the pad. We had to re-level about every 3 days to compensate. Overall we were extremely happy with this campground and would stay here again when in the area.
This campground is heavily wooded (we were in the shade almost all day long), clean and well maintained. The sites feel a little cramped/crowded but that's because there are so many trees. We stayed in a 37' motorhome and it was a bit tight when driving and maneuvering through the park. The rate we paid ($41) is discounted due to the purchase of two Six Flags tickets. We chose a 50-amp pull-through with water but no sewer, since we were only staying three nights and could use the dump station on the way out. There are quite a few seasonal campers set up with decks/patios/etc. for the season. The free Wi-Fi was often unusably slow. Also, both AT&T and Verizon had very poor signals - we had to use our cell booster to get our hotspot working. We'll stay here again if we revisit Six Flags, but otherwise the non-discounted price ($60) would be pretty high for us for 50-amp full hookups.
This isn't really an RV park, it's an adult/retirement mobile home community with some vacant lots (paved and level) which are rented out to RVers. That said, the staff was very helpful and the permanent residents were all friendly and we felt welcome there, and the price was right. There's nothing scenic about it since it's not a campground (a couple sites had picnic tables, our didn't), but it worked for our needs (a home base near Philly for a week). The street we were on had four RVs and four mobile homes. There were plenty of residential streets nearby where we could go for long walks with our dogs. The free WiFi worked sometimes often we had to revert to using our hotspot. We'd stay again if our main goal is a place to park for a bit near Philly and we're not looking for an RV park to "camp" in.
This is a very large RV park, with many amenities for guests (pool, hiking trail, hay wagon rides, conference center, etc.). It's a very nice park in a great location, but be aware that the spaces are very close together. Our driver's side slide-outs were just a couple feet away from overhanging our neighbor's picnic table. We saw everything there from primitive tents to Prevosts. The free Wi-Fi worked reasonably well during the day when everyone was out sightseeing, but was nearly unusable during evenings. We stayed for a week and would consider staying again if the price were a bit better, but at this price, we'll look further away from the city next time. The hiking trail was great for us and our dogs but we picked up a lot of ticks, so be careful.
This is a large, beautiful county park in the middle of the high-tech Reston area with dozens of fine restaurants and shopping within a mile or two. Large, level grass & gravel sites, picnic table, and fire ring. The county park itself has a skateboard park (we were close to the park but the noise didn't bother us at all), water park (extra fee), many nice trails through the woods for hiking/biking, sports fields (active every day with soccer and other sports), and more. Very large and clean showers/bathrooms. Would probably rate it a 9 or 10 if they offered water/sewer. The fresh water fill and the dump station are on opposite sides of the road near the bathhouse. The new Metrorail station in Reston opens in July 2014 and is only a mile or two from the park, giving easy train access to DC sightseeing.
Right inside Raleigh, across from PNC arena. Level sites, crushed gravel. Trees still young, no shade, good spacing between sites. Takes cash or checks only. Good Wi-Fi most of the time, sometimes will kick you off. Dog friendly: You're inside the fairgrounds so lots of space to walk dogs. No amenities but close to city, easy to get to, and full hookups for a great price. Would stay here again.
Very nature-oriented. Lots of trees, some of the lots are full sun. Great lake with a lot of wild ducks and geese everywhere. Wi-Fi is free but pretty awful. When it works, it's pretty slow. Other times it just won't let you online at all. Level sites, crushed gravel, good spacing between sites. Dog friendly. Nice clean little pool, lots of use by families. About 20 minutes from downtown Charleston. Would stay here again.
Nice home base for visiting St. Augustine (10 min) and Jacksonville (30 min). Easy to get to, good entrance, main road is paved, other roads are gravel but level. Sites are level, crushed gravel, concrete patios. There are gullies at the edges of the sites to help drain water away during rain but just go slow and you won't have problems going over them. Free Tengo WiFi that works fine if you do simple surfing and mail (no downloads or streaming or you will be throttled). Very pet friendly, all dogs were well-behaved and everyone seemed to pick up after them. Most spots are shady but some full sun. Quiet, clean, friendly. We would definitely come back here again.
Stayed here twice in April, first time right after we got our new motorhome from Lazydays, the second time a few weeks after to get a couple of repairs done. Very nice campground, paved sites, full hookups, and wide paved roads to get to each site. Makes it very easy to back into your site. Campground provides tickets for free breakfast and lunches at The Front Porch (cafeteria in sales building), if you get the daily special. Otherwise, the tickets give you $3 off your meal. Very dog friendly, you can walk your dog through the campground, sales area, service area, and even into the sales office. There are dog poop stations and also a couple dog runs (separated into small/large dogs). The Wi-Fi here has spoiled us. We haven't found another campground that even comes close. Didn't use any of the amenities in the campground, but the pool and hot tub looked very nice (screened in). Campground also has a free driver confidence course that is definitely worth doing, no matter how long you've been driving your coach. There's a classroom lecture in the morning for one hour, then driving in the afternoon. Very happy with our stay here, would stay here again.
Nice clean park, fair number of semi-permanent mobile homes here, so not a lot of sites for RV's passing through. The roads are paved but a bit narrow, and the sites are crushed gravel but level. We didn't have any issues with our pull through site. They do have pet weight restriction (35lbs) and aggressive breed restrictions. We called since we have two labs and they made an exception because it was their slow season. We did see a few dogs over the 35lb limit so I guess they do make exceptions regularly. I'd consider them to be more dog-neutral than dog-friendly. You cannot walk your dog through the campground, only in specified dog walk areas. We were placed near the back of the campground since our dogs were over the weight limit. Our closest area was actually outside the fenced campground right by the rain runoff. No pens allowed either. Front office is very friendly and helpful. Trash pickup is once a day around 9:30am. No free WiFi at campsites, only in the office.
