Park is 90% permanent campers. All the good sites are taken and the site that we were assigned to only had 15 amp service. The roads are very narrow, the turns are tight and there are many tree branches that need to be trimmed. There is nothing much in the immediate area. I would not stay here again.
Park is the best place to stay when visiting Gros Morne if you need electric and water. We stayed in the two way hookup area and used the dump station as the three way sites are basically a parking lot while the two ways are wooded and more private.
When you go to Newfoundland you should stay at this park before and /or after the ferry ride at Port aux Basques. This is one of the nicest parks that I have ever stayed at as it has the layout of a provincial (state) park, which it was, but with three way hookups. The owners are super nice and they give you free firewood. This is a perfect place to relax and start your trip or end a wonderful vacation in Newfoundland. All parks should be this nice.
The view from the park is very nice and the owners are helpful. But that is as far as it goes. It is actually in an active gravel pit and the road in an out goes through the pit where the earth moving equipment is operating. The internal roads are dirt and you get red mud all over everything if it has been raining. The electric hookups are antiquated and the breakers are not on the service post so you can not shut the electric off while you are plugging in, which is a real safety hazard. We stayed here as it was very foggy and raining and we were desperate for a place to stay as some other parks were closed, otherwise we would have moved on. Would not stay here again.
We stayed the night here and had no problems. WiFi worked well and there were brand new bathrooms, like your home bathroom with shower. The roads are paved and in great condition. Very few people in here this early in the season so I do not know how crowded the sites would be.
We stayed in the section along the river. The campground is well maintained and has a separate section for tents. The sites are pretty tight. However, they were assigning them on an every other one basis because there was not that much demand. There is a lot to do in the area and the drive up Whiteface Mountain should not be missed if the weather is clear. The Ausable River is dammed at this location which provides for an enjoyable canoe or kayak outing. We would stay here again if in the area
Campground is small and sites are pretty close together. If you can get a waterfront site (9 or 10 for example) the view is nice. It is a decent place to stay for traveling in the area, but there is nothing to do at the campground.
The park is in a good location for visiting mid-coast Maine. However, I paid $154 including tax for a 3 night stay and one would expect more than a place to park. It looks like they have not done any improvements in thirty years. The interior roads are in bad shape and only about eight feet wide. All sites are back-in and you have to swing off the road to back your trailer in which puts your truck (or car) into a swale of grass and mud. I had to use 4 wheel drive in order to back uphill onto my site. I witnessed another 5th wheel that was larger than mine not being able to be placed on the site after about 30 minutes of spinning in the muddy grass. The park is on the water but the stairs leading down a steep bank to the water have rotted away and have not been replaced. Don't bother bringing your kayak like I did. Also, there is nothing here for kids to do except for the pool. The seasonal residents think that they own the place and two of them asked me to move my camper as it was blocking their view and I was on a site assigned by the owner. I would only stay here again off season for half price.
This is one of the nicest campgrounds along the I-95 corridor and a great place to stay when visiting coastal Georgia or stopping on your trip to/from Florida. Some of the turns on the internal roads may be a little tight for big rigs, but you should not have a problem if you are careful.
Rate is with Passport America. Very nice destination park. There is a lot of outdoor activities available in the area, and the camp sites were spacious for just relaxing without being on top of your neighbors. The screened in pool was a very nice feature. We will stay here again when visiting Florida's "Nature Coast".
The rate is Passport America. The park has improved since we were here 5 years ago. The roads are newly paved and everything was clean. The only drawback was the noise from Route 19. They sprayed for insects while we were there, so we did not experience the problems that others mentioned. We will come back while visiting relatives and friends in the area but would not stay here for a vacation due to the congestion in the Port Richey area.
This was our second stay at this park. It is a good place to stay before taking the ferry to Ocracoke or if you have a boat. Other than that, there is no reason to stay here. We were warned about the smelly water when we checked in. Bring bottled water to drink and don't fill your fresh water tank.
Nice, clean campground. Everything worked well and there were plenty of open areas for dog walking. It would appear that the campground is trying to become a little more upscale than it was when it was a KOA. We would stay here again.
This is a fair place to stay for an overnight while traveling the I-95 corridor. The pull though sites are short and my 30 foot 5er and pickup went road to road. If I had unhooked there would have been no place to park the truck. We did not make use of the pizza or wine tasting. Everything is dirt and may be a mess when it rains, but it was dry when we were here.
The entrance road is in terrible shape and the sites were muddy. The pull through sites are small and my truck with a 27 foot 5th wheel took the whole length. The turns on the interior roads and around the dump station are tight. On the plus side, there is a decent walking trail around the property. Park is o.k. for overnight or short term stay while touring the area. It is not a resort destination. We would stay here again if traveling through.
We went to Avon after Route 12 reopened on October 11th. The park was in good shape considering the damage that was done in the area by hurricane Irene. We will return next year as it is very convenient and clean with larger sites than others in the area. Per night price was Passport America including charge for electric usage.
This park is very nice for older persons but does not offer much for families with younger children. We camped here for two days with our three grandsons and there were only about seven other kids in the park. The atmosphere is one of a retirement village. If you just want to relax in a quiet place this is fine. If you want activities to keep the kids occupied, this is not the place. However, there is a lot to do in the area.
The campground is beautiful, on the beach and next to a bicycle trail. The park would be a ten if it was not for the patrons. Do not stay here on a summer weekend unless you like the other campers setting off fireworks, drinking and playing music loud all night. Friday night was a little noisy but we could still sleep. Saturday night was a different story. Many young people here from Quebec City for the sole purpose of partying. A shame as this is a great place.
The road into the park is pretty rough and about 2 miles from either exit of Rt 20. I paid, with tax, $52 for the site and they wanted to charge me extra for a dog and Wi-Fi. If you ask you can get both for no extra, but it is real pricey for what is here. The interior roads are paved where the permanent sites are but a little muddy for the transients. I would stay here again to visit Quebec City but not for any other reason.
We loved this place. The sites in the electric loop are very private and there are plenty of activities in the park to keep you busy. Most of the employees speak some English and are very helpful. Be sure to fill up your water tank before going to your site.
This is probably the nicest park along the northern shore of the peninsula. If you are looking for resort style camping you are not going to find it in this area. I would have rated this higher if the WiFi was free, it is $3 for 1/2 hour, and the maintenance was a little better. There was a short interpretive trail that has become overgrown and the info signs have been removed. Great views and sunset from the campsite.There is highway noise during the day, but it is quieter at night.
The park is very well maintained. They have constructed new stairs to the beach and the staff was very helpful. We arrived in the pouring rain and the woman on duty still walked to the site and helped direct me backing in. The Wi-Fi works great. We would have stayed here longer but did not know that you can not bring dogs into the nearby Parc National de la Gaspesie which limited what we could do in the area.
Park was clean but you are very close to others. The hookups were o.k. but if your sewer is in the rear you will need a long hose. The restaurant is the reason to stay here and the food was very good. Most of the staff can speak enough English to accommodate the non Francophones.
It is an older park but well kept.The owner is friendly and there is free wifi. As mentioned previously, the trans Canada Highway is very noisy. However, this is a good overnight stop as there is nothing else in the vicinity that you would want to stay at.
A beautiful spot on Lake Superior. We had a site in the newer section with sewer and 50 amp service. The site we had, #76, was right on the beach with a great view of the lake and Grand Island. It might be a little crowded in the summer, but this time of year it is outstanding. We would stay here again.
Very nice park. It was clean and well run. The sites by the river have great views of the passing ships. There are adjacent park lands where you can go for a pleasant stroll in the evening. We would stay here again.
This is one of the worst campgrounds I have been to in thirty years of RVing. The roads are potholed, the bathrooms padlocked and the dump station full and out of service. The section for the permanent campers seems to be better, but the transient section is very neglected. We will not stay here again.
