Grand Codroy is about 30 minutes from the Port Aux Basques ferry. We stayed her twice: the first day we landed in Newfoundland and then two nights before departing Newfoundland. Know that the park is cash only for the camping fees (they do take credit cards in the onsite gift shop). Sites are well spaced out in this park; there’s lots of room! We had full hook ups, but there is only 30 amps within this park. All hook ups are in good condition. As for facilities, we did not use the toilets or showers. This park is very clean and well maintained. Each site has a household sized metal garbage can. There are a couple of recycling bins around the park. As for amenities, there is a playground area and a gift shop (lots of hand crafted items). The park is located close enough to the Trans Canada highway to be close - but far enough away that it very quiet. This is one of the most peaceful and quiet parks we’ve stayed at. There is a pleasant walking path that the owners have made. Glad we stayed an extra day because this enabled us to spend a full day checking out this beautiful area of Newfoundland.
Pippy Park Campground is right in the city of St. John’s. We stayed in the large open area where all the sites have 50 amps. In this area, the sites are rather basic; gravel parking with grass strip / yard between each site. There is ample room between sites and sites are very long. All hook ups are in the middle of the site and all are in good condition. As for facilities, we did not use the toilets or showers, but did check them out. While a little dated, everything was very clean and well maintained. Crews do regular garbage pick up at each site (each site has a household sized metal garbage can). Recycling needs to put in a separate bag beside the garbage can. As for amenities, there is a couple of playing ground and picnic areas, and lots of green space. Pippy Park caters to all types of campers, i.e., lots of different types of sites. The best two things about Pippy Park are its location and that its very dog friendly. As stated, the park is right in the city. You are close to everything. There is a city bus stop at the entrance to the park. There are lots of walking trails in the area and many loop around the local ponds (once you visit Newfoundland, you'll know what a pond is). Our dogs loved this park because of the trials. We extended our stay here too.
Sanger Memorial is located on the Exploits river and its a beautiful setting. Sites are well spaced out in this park; there’s lots of room. We had full hook ups and all were in good working condition. As for facilities, we did not use the toilets or showers. Each site has a household sized metal garbage can. As for amenities, there is a playing ground area and a boat launch (which has been completely rebuilt and is great! lot of picnic tables and seating area). The park is located within the town, thus you are close to everything. There is a nice walking path along the river. Internet is available but only at the check-in booth.
At this KOA, the site quality was poor. The sites have lots of trees. That said, we were able to get satellite. All the hook ups are located at far end of site. We needed over 30 feet of water hose to make the connection. We were not able to use sewer as it was broken. The electric box cover was broken. The site was level. I describe the RV park as not big rig friendly. This is because we were told we were in one of the largest sites. Well, we filled almost the entire site. We are a 37 foot motorhome plus tow (which is a Chevy HHR). All the interior roads are very poor condition - so many pot holes - and big ones too! As for the facilities, we did not use toilets nor showers. Compared to other KOA parks we have been to, this KOA did not seem to have much. The park is located on a busy road. It is south of city of Montreal and you could commute. However, you definitely would need a tow car as there is no transit available. As for pet friendliness, there is no dedicated dog area, only the gravel interior roadway to walk dogs on. The road way outside the RV park is too busy to walk on. It felt unsafe to walk the dogs.
First, we would not call this a resort - it is only an RV park. The only thing resortish about the place was the price, and we got an off season rate. As for the site quality, it was ‘okay’. All sites are gravel sites with a wooden picnic table, fire ring and garbage can (although garbage was never picked up and there was a bag of trash already in the garbage when we arrived). The strip of grass between the sites really needed cutting. It was very obvious that no one had mowed that grass for a while. Know that all hook ups are at the back of site. So if you don’t unhook your tow, you will not be able to make the water, sewer, and electric connections. As for the facilities, we did not use toilets nor showers. The laundry room was very clean. There in a water park/slide next door, but you pay extra for that. Similarly, there are canoes and kayaks, and again, you pay extra for that. The RV park is located along the Saint John river - very pretty. There is a walking/bike path along the river and it goes all the way in to the downtown of Fredericton (approximately 6 K or 4 miles). Great for walking the dogs or riding your bike. [Note, I changed the rating of "waterfront sites available" because rvparkreviews states "means waterfront not "view"". There is a public path / walkway between the river and the RV park. All the sites closest to the water are seasonal site.
We liked this park and will certainly return. Nice large grassy site, pad is gravel, level, park is very clean. We did use not toilets nor showers. All connectors at the site are in good working condition. Park is well maintained, managers very helpful & friendly. There is 50 amp, good Wi-Fi, play area for kids. As for location, the park has excellent proximity to the city. Did hear some road noise (to be expected as the I-29 is right next to the park). There is no dedicated dog area, but lots of grass. There’s an excellent off-leash dog park near by (Spencer park at 3501 South Cliff Ave.)
We asked for a pull through site so we did not have to unhook the car, but no sites along enough for this request (which we found out after we had paid). 1/5 = site quality: very small sites (not able to open our awning), barely able to open all slides. We had to unhook car, level site 1/5 = facilities: did not use toilets nor showers, all building looking a little tired 1/5 = amenities: only 30 amp, so-so wifi 2/5 = location: very busy road, could hear traffic, south of town 1/5 = pet friendliness: no dedicated dog area, only gravel interior roadway to walk dogs on
We selected to stay here based on the location. While the park is right on the I8, and there is road noise, we’d return because of the location. We were fortunate to have a site with shade and concrete pad (not all sites have this). The park is kept up well and the staff were helpful. There is a fee for the internet. The rate we paid reflects the monthly rate we paid.
This is a very well maintained park, however, it is an old park; the sites are small and do not accommodate rigs with slides, there is only 30 amp throughout the park. There is fairly good privacy as each sites has some hedges. There are limited sites that you can park your tow on (and you pay more for these sites). Otherwise you park you tow in lot and walk to your site.The best thing; LOCATION. This is one of the most expensive places we’ve stayed. The rate we paid reflects the weekly rate we paid.
Fairly basic RV park,but the location is everything. Easy walk right onto the beach. Sites are very close together and in the busy season, you'd literally be right on top of each other. Staff was great and we really appreciated the 'thank you' email (a first for us) and it was nice to have received it.
Very nice RV Park. While we have been to the Oregon coast many, many times - had never stayed at Cannon Beach. Well, we'll be back here for sure. I Liked the spacing of the sites as it maximized privacy and maintained the trees 'natural' setting. Great amenities.
Very nice RV Park; well groomed with good sites (easy in & out). Would have given it a 10, but they advertise free WiFi and they only provide free WiFi for 24 hours. When asked about the way they advertised, we were informed: "yes we do have Wi-Fi and you can purchase it for $5.00 per day". (note: the rate we paid reflects Good Sam rate)
This is one of our favourite Oregon's state parks. If you like trees, mostly shaded sites, and the ocean. There are lots of options in the sites; dry tent camping to large rigs (stay in B loop). Note: you'll likely need your fleece because that wind off the ocean is very cool!
We liked this park: it was a great find! Found the office staff to be very helpful. (We were tourists and they had lots of local info and directions to find things: like Home Depot or Wal-Mart, etc.). Upside: a great location in downtown Long Beach, gated park, right on the harbor/ seawall; nicely landscaped, a pool and hot tub, very good laundry (a deal compared to other parks), and everything was clean and well kept. Down side: the sites are not paved (packed dirt), the extra charge of a $1 per day per dog. We plan to stay a month next year!
This is a GEM of a park! Found the managers/owners to be very helpful. The cost was a real bargain! Have never rated a park as a 10: but here it is. Upside: quiet, ultra clean, paved and level sites, well kept, nicely landscaped, very good laundry, great WiFi and cable TV. Down side: there are no facilities (toilets, showers). We'll stay at Green Acres RV Park again for sure!
This was a new park and new area for us. Our site was right on Lake Sammamish! Very pretty setting. It was extremely warm when we camped here, but being on the lake made a huge difference. Great host, clean park, and well managed. The rating would be higher IF there was cable TV and internet. I would call it "Vasa Park" and drop the "Resort." The sites are very close together. If we'd been in a non-serviced site, we would never have been able to open our slides in those sites.
Cash only. This was a new park for us, very near Rasar State Park (so we knew the area). It is rustic, but had all services and we truly had a pleasant stay at this park (yes, we would return). It was very hot when we were here, and the sites were right in the woods! We stayed nice and cool, despite the heat. Great host, great cable TV and great internet.
Price is with the Good Sam discount. We were very pleased with this RV Park. Please note that our preference is for an Oregon State Park on the ocean (a natural setting, rather than an open, flat, graveled campground). However, Mt Vernon RV Park is a very pleasant find; very clean, very friendly, very quiet. We have become regular visitors for the last two years. It is a good little park with great hosts, in pleasant area and town.
We were very pleased with this campground. Please note that our preference is for state parks with a more natural setting, rather than an open, flat, mostly paved campgrounds. So Brookhollow was a pleasant find; very clean, very friendly, very quite. We have already booked to return in 2009!
This is one of Washington's best state parks if you like: a forest setting, mostly shaded sites, and the occasional jet (you are very close to a naval base). If you are planning on camping here over a weekend, you will need a reservation. Note; have only camping in the serviced sites (electric and water) which is called The Forest Loop.
