We enjoyed our stay at this KOA. Friendly staff, clean grounds, and a great area to explore. The front of the park is not too special as the pull thrus are on the tight side except #1 which is on the corner. The back ins offer more room, the best back in being the sites along the river. The special part of the park requires you to cross over the Swannanoa River. It's almost paradise with 30 amp full hook up sites 9 thru 15 along the lake as they offer beautiful views not only of water, but the mountains as well. Sites 24, 25, & 26 offer good depth for big rigs and still have a decent view. We would definitely stay here again. An excellent KOA and very easy access off Interstate 40.
This is a busy RV park, large in size and number of sites. The best sites are the supersites, long and wide concrete full hook up pull throughs with lighted pedestals, elevated fireplaces and big heavy coated picnic tables. Unfortunately, campground management decided to make the perimeter of the supersites area a storage lot for RVs, and lots of them. We think it makes the area less attractive. We enjoyed the on site restaurant, biking to Virginia Beach, and the ocean at Sand Bridge Island. We will return.
Excellent choice for a stay over while traveling or as a destination campground while touring the area. We love the super sites, the pool area, and walking the whole campground. We are looking forward to our next visit as they are undertaking a huge expansion at the front of the park, which will include an indoor pool a new outdoor pool/splash area and what looks to be a hotel/lodge. Big plans in the works!
We camped here for a weekend and had a great time. The pools were clean and the water is warm, and the lake/beach area had been neatly raked. We found the restrooms to be clean, and plenty of hot water for a shower. We have been at this resort before and have always had a great time. Although there are a fair amount of seasonals, and a fair amount of golf carts, they are not a problem for us. Management told me they are looking to add shuffleboard and bocce courts in the future, we will be looking forward to this.
This was our sixth trip to this park. As usual, the amenities, facilities, the staff, and our site exceeded our expectations. The park is well maintained with an attention to details, and management continues to make sure your camping experience is a great one. Our only surprise was the nightly rate of $119.00 with 5 kids ($79 base rate plus $40 for the kids). We thought it was excessive and unaffordable for a lot of camping families.
Excellent opportunity for skiing or snowboarding family to winter camp right at the mountain. The roads are plowed as is your site. Plenty of back in sites with warm clean restrooms and a 5 minute walk to the base lodge of the ski resort. The park desperately needs cable TV as there is no over the air TV reception.
You get what you pay for at Lake George RV Park. This place is as good as it gets, the gold standard for high end RV parks. Everything here is extremely well maintained, all the facilities and amenities are in excellent working order. Family owned and operated, all the employees are friendly, helpful, and hard working. This was our sixth stay here and we kept our older teens interested with area attractions like white water rafting, horseback riding, disc golf, a lake cruise, and Martha's soft serve ice cream. Would love to see a dog park, and concrete pads on the sites. Cannot wait to go back.
Danforth Bay continues to be our favorite New Hampshire RV park. Danforth Bay is big rig friendly with super clean bathrooms, well maintained pools and clean modern facilities. The park has many large private sites, great Wi-Fi, friendly seasonals, and a professional and courteous staff. The park fills up fast for the summer months, but our favorite time here is during the spring and fall, especially mid September through October.
Excellent family RV park in a great vacation destination. Nice to see they are upgrading sites with full concrete pads and fancy fire rings. I would love to see some pull through sites with concrete pads for big rigs. This was our seventh visit in ten years and we are already booked for 2014. Families with kids of all ages will enjoy everything Frontiertown has to offer. Book up to two years in advance to get the best sites.
Beautiful small, family owned and operated park on Brandywine Creek. Clean pool, really exceptional rec hall/arcade/restaurant building, and clean, well kept facilities and amenities. This park is big rig friendly (go easy on the winding road to the park), has courteous employees, and great service. Only complaint was the hefty holiday rate for a family of two adults and four kids.
Beautiful landscaping, extremely well maintained RV park with friendly and helpful employees and work campers. Bingo in the Gnome Cafe on a rainy Saturday night was well managed and a lot of fun. We had an excellent time at this classy RV park with two other families and would return again. Wish the indoor pool was open for spring vacation.
One of best family parks for fun, outdoor amenities, and recreational opportunities in Ocean City, Maryland. Kids will love this place, the pools, waterpark, Wild West show, and crabbing and fishing piers are all wonderful. Only negative, the golf carts are becoming a real negative as is the after hours bicycle riding and noise after quiet hours. This was our sixth trip to Frontiertown (every other year since 2001) and by far the golf carts and bikes are completely out of control. Go here but supervise your small children.
Cannot give this park a "10" like so many others. Check in was a little less than pleasant and the highly touted hippo slide was to be $59.00 for a week's pass for a family of five and it closes daily from 2 to 4 pm. The poorly maintained game room has 11 machines of which 5 were broken and the mini golf was another poorly executed amenity. The camp store is stock full of souveniers, but practically nothing to eat. Our site was #34 which was directly in front of the bathhouse, whole families cut through our site at all hours of the day, even while we sat and ate or entertained. On the positive, the pool is clean and it's very close to all the Williamsburg attractions and it's cheaper than the KOA at the next exit. Next time we will be at the KOA.
Still a great campground and the best place to stay for exploring our nation's capitol. We stayed here one night in a full hook up pull-through. The pools were clean, the cafe has a good menu and the food quality and cleanliness were very good.
Great setting on the river, well maintained and a good mixture of seasonal and transient sites. We stayed one night on our way south, enjoyed the park for the time we were there and would return for a longer stay. Definitely big rig friendy as the roads around the park are wide and easy to negotiate with our 40 foot four slide RV.
Use speedy check in and get treats for the dog and treats for the kids, then get escorted to your site (mostly pull throughs with limited privacy). Normandy Farms is over the top in terms of facilities, amenities, and customer service. This park is overflowing with hardworking, helpful, and courteous employees who enjoy their job, and make sure you enjoy your stay. It is one of the most expensive parks you will stay at in New England, but you get what you pay for, and this park has it all. Take advantage of on line coupons and Good Sam discounts to ease the pain, but remember, Normandy Farms is worth it!
We stayed here as a stopover on our way from Cedar Point to the Boston area where we live. The park is beautiful, the amenities are first rate and we had an excellent time at the Casino Buffet dining area. Unfortunately we were assigned site 404, a pond front pull through. The whole area hosts a large Canadian Geese population. Our site was riddled with goose droppings which we all tracked into our brand new camper after an evening walk to work off that huge buffet dinner at the casino. We had to have the carpets professionally cleaned when we got home. 9 out of 10 rating due to the goose dropppppings.
Danforth Bay is 10 years old this year and it's big sister, Purity Spring Resort is turning 100. We are returning customers to this camp resort that gets better with age. Park employees in the office, maintenance, and activities are top notch, and customer service continues to be excellent. The grounds are well maintained and beaches are raked on a daily basis. The pools are clean and heated to boot. Weekly activities and live entertainment on the weekends keep things fresh and fun. Nothing bad to say here, keep up the great work Danforth Bay!
Excellent RV destination for winter camping (as we did). Perfect RV park about 7 minute walk to base lodge for skiing and riding, or very short walk to cross country ski base lodge. Winter camping at Gunstock is lots of fun, the mountain is very family friendly with ski programs for all ages and weekly and weekend promotions for lots of resort products and services. The mountain has excellent grooming, 99% snowmaking, and the trails and glades are for all skill levels.
Red Rock Ponds is a three year old RV park managed and owned by the couple that built it. The owners are friendly, courteous, and helpful and treat their guests the same. This is an excellent full hook up campground with a fair amount of well maintained seasonals. Grounds are clean and neat and everyone we encountered was friendly. The park was full for July 4th, I would have given it a ten if it had a swimming pool, as we think this park could really use a nice big swimming pool.
Big Rig friendly, lots of concrete pull thru sites and lots of concrete back in sites. This park is near a retail mecca of shopping centers, yet in the woods with lots of trees and plenty of activities within and around the park. Hamilton County takes RV camping seriously as this park is well maintained and well managed. Winton Woods is a gem of an RV park and a great value for RV'ers, cabin users, and tent campers alike. We used it as base for our trip to Kings Island Amusement Park about 15 minutes away.
Winter camping at Danforth Bay is fantastic. Plowed roads, full hook up sites, rec hall and basement kitchen area open 24/7, plus clean and warm bath houses with hot showers. This is a great RV park to try winter camping, plenty of winter sports activities to do in the area, campground staff on duty for propane and any other RVer needs. The camp store has limited hours, groceries are a short drive away, the park is very peaceful, and wildlife abounds this time of the year.
This is a drive thru/walking review. We were impressed with this brand new RV park on Sinepuxent Bay. Sweeping ocean view sites in a gated portion of the park was new for us, the regular portion of the park with mostly back ins looked really nice as well. Park buildings including bath houses and office are impressive. The staff was courteous and professional. This is an excellent alternative to Frontiertown, nearly identical locale off Rt. 610 in Berlin.
Otter Lake continues to be an excellent value for family camping in Pennsylvania. This park offers plenty of free amenities, 60+ cable channels, a wide range of activities, a peaceful and scenic setting in the Pocono's, and is family owned and operated by a polite, courteous, and accommodating staff. The park was built in the 1970's, the paved camp roads are on the narrow side and there are tree hazards to look out for, however, there are plenty of sites available for big rigs owners like ourselves including pull thrus' and many large back in lakefront sites.
Frontier town is an excellent RV park, in a terrific location on Sinepuxent Bay near Ocean City and Assateague Island. Nice pool, great mini water park, fully stocked camp store, lots of cable TV channels, express check in, and plenty of polite and helpful employees. This was our fifth visit over the past nine years and not much has changed over that time. Frontier town is an older RV park and I think it's time for some updating. Concrete pull thru super sites and concrete pads on all the full hookup sites would be wonderful. Better locations for hookups on some sites is a must, and wider roads and select pruning of mature trees along the roadways on on certain sites would be very helpful for big rig owners like us. This is a great park for families with kids of all ages. Make sure to enjoy the Boardwalk in Ocean City, the Ocean Bowl skate park on 3rd and St. Louis Ave, and the State and Federal parts of Assateague Island with the wild horses and sweeping ocean and marsh landscapes.
This was our second visit to BTL, 10 days of lakefront camping with 50 amp service, full hookups and 30 cable channels. The park is family owned and operated with a caring, courteous, and professional group of employees. The sites are mostly large, wooded, and private with tables and fire rings. We consider the park Big Rig friendly. BTL is very close to Avalon and Stone Harbor beaches (both have skate parks), Cape May Zoo, and a supermarket is a five minute drive away. First rate amenities including boccie, shuffleboard and basketball courts, lake and pool swimming options, mini golf, and beach tags to Avalon or Stone Harbor are available in the camp store. The activities are well planned and first rate, Monte Carlo night our first weekend was great fun, followed by the Christmas in July theme week which culminated with a Santa Claus visit during a large well attended Saturday evening beach party complete with DJ, Hot Dogs, and a bonfire. This park is an excellent choice for a family vacation, thanks Big Timber Lake!
Still a beautiful park as we have been here for other Memorial Day weekends. The place is starting to look a little tired though, the play structures are in pretty poor shape, a seasonal told us they were supposed to build a new playground this year but it never happened. The red trailers are still in use to dispose of trash, we had a great view of the garbage and watched raccoons rummage on Saturday and Sunday night. Dirt piles along roads within the campground, a big one near the beach road took away from overall appearance of the campground. We still had a good time camping with another family and would return.
Big Rig friendly, easy access of I-81, large sites, excellent camp store/restaurant, terrific arcade area with kiddie rides. Great setting in the Adirondacks for fall foliage made this a memorable trip. We would definitely return to this well kept and well managed rv park.
A great home base to explore the Jersey Shore, large sites, friendly staff, and plenty of amenities make this campground a great choice for any camping family. Lots of imagination goes into the activites. "Survivor" was the theme at the beach during our stay. A terrific arcade/ restaurant/ice cream parlor/pavillion area can handle large crowds. Beach tags are available from the store, recycling is strongly encouraged, and management strives to make your stay memorable. Would definitely return.
Awesome supersites include poured concrete pads with large picnic table, elevated fire ring, and lighted utility pedestal. A very active, busy, people orientated rv park not for those looking for a quiet, restful experience. A great park for a family vacation with heated pools, large arcade, mini golf, two stores, bingo and live entertainment nightly. It's very close to Virginia Beach and within an hours drive of most Williamsburg attractions.
An old fashioned, affordable, no activity, no guest fees, just make your own fun, type of campground. Nice pool, clean and affordable on-site restaurant, nice game room, and new electric service are the upside. Off the main road, full hook up sites are close together, and lots of older dated seasonal trailers are the downside. Updating the bathhouse should be the next order of business here. Overall, not a bad place to stay for a weekend, and definitely better than the local competition.
Newly paved roads, new pools, large sites, some with lots of shade, some with lots of sun. Over enforcement of kids on bicycles, lack of enforcement of kids and adults speeding along in golf carts or in automobiles. Lots of roadside and beachside litter, unsightly open trailers to place garbage in which is ripped open by nocturnal animals nightly and no recycling of plastics or glass. Lame, unimaginative, and poorly supervised activities. Weak security that seems to be hesitant to enforce the rules. All things considered, we would still return.
Immaculate RV Park perfect for those who want to maximize their stay at Cedar Point or Soak City. Awesome pull thru sites with full hookups and picnic table, but no campfires allowed. Thrilling roller coaster noise gently floods your campsite. Convienient shuttle to park entrance or walk for about 5 minutes across a parking lot and you are through the gates!
We camped here right after the park closed due to excessive river flooding. All activities including mini golf, bumper boats, and fun bikes were free. Clean and well managed resort with top notch office staff and activities staff. We would definitely return.
On site owners, an escort to our site, and assistance parking our rv made our stay at this quaint campground very enjoyable. The 100 acre wood area is down the street and offers a woodsy setting with large full hook-up pull thru sites and small no hook-up sites suitable for those looking for a "real" camping experience.
Surprisingly, we were less than thrilled with our stay here. Still a great RV park, but second and third generation now running the business and have adopted a very aggressive and expensive pricing strategy. The base rate is $52.00 plus $6.00 per child per night. At this price level, I expect concrete pads, phone hook-ups, and because of the per child charges, an extensive and all inclusive activities program. I don't like being charged for my children at a family campground.
I just do not see this place as a "10" as so many others do. Terribly loud highway noise awaits anyone camping on or near sites 68 and 69. Cramped and chaotic parking for new arrivals, lousy laundry hours, lack of speed enforcement, and the surprise charge for usage of the new water slide were big negatives. On the upside, spotless, modern bathrooms, top quality staff, lifeguards at the pools, superb amenities do offset the shortcomings.
