BE CAREFUL! They have a very convoluted idea of what partial service is. It's not water and electric as most other CG's use - it's 15 amp only and water. If you want 30 amp they use a different description. 15 amp service is caused by a 30 amp receiver with a 15 amp breaker. Is a little tight too. I'd guess 15' for the previously mentioned 15 amp partial sites. Wi-Fi is very strong and fairly fast. Gray Lines will pick you up at the park for their "City Tour". It's good.
I'm not sure I'm staying at the same CG that previous reviewers stayed at. My experience (over 2 days) was one of the best. Site was level (#10), right on the river, WiFi was about the best I've encountered this trip, power and water were good, hosts were extra friendly and helpful. A nice trail along the river to an abandoned boat yard was a nice extra touch. I would definitely stay here again.
I'll split the difference between the last review and the ones previous. The park is well maintained, well landscaped and clean. Site is level (158 )with adequate room between sites, although not a lot of free space. Sites were easily accessible. I'd have rated it higher, except for the intermittent Wi-Fi that kept quitting, required a log in each time it quit and restarted, and had a lack of speed monitoring. I felt like I was near a race track the way many cars ignored the 10 MPH limit. I in spite of all we would return.
Stayed here two nights awaiting the Good Sam Pasadena Samboree. I'd have given this place an 11 out of 10 if they had Wi-Fi at the site. This CG is made up of several loops, some on top of a mountain and some down in the valley by Puddingstone Lake. Sites are roomy grass between is more than generous, amenities in the CG are plentiful, both for kids and adults. The view from my site (115) was great. I would definitely repeat here if in the area.
All previous reviewers were spot on. Sites are wide, well designed and clean. The park wasn't too full when I was here and something that I like, they spread transients out. Too many places pack transients into one area. They didn't here. The view from site 105 was great. It overlooked San Diego Bay and downtown San Diego could be seen. Rows are terraced, so just about everyone gets a view. Nice touch. RV Parks around here are very expensive and for the price, I thought they should have cable TV. They don't. Full hookups at each site, but none of the usual central facilities (showers, bath, etc.) They do have a putting green, landscaping is great. Would definitely stay again.
As with the previous reviewer, I am wondering what is wrong with this park! I'm here for two days, and everything is fine. Site 24 is within 1/4 bubble of level, the Wi-Fi is strong, (if a little slow). Cable is fine, and the owners go out of their way to explain the town. The little breakfast restaurant is a plus. Rate reflects Good Sam.
Stayed 3 nights. Everything was professional and well done. Girl came out of office for initial contact; told me where to park, how to check in and asked the initial questions. Quite nice. Wi-Fi was around 120k/sec speed, cable TV was limited to 12 channels. Sites were extraordinary; wide, deep, w/paver bricks including a paved space for toads. I was a little hesitant about the rate (Good Sam), but adding in shuttles, parking, French Quarter traffic and inconvenience, this isn't too far from other CG further out. Definitely would repeat here.
Above average park. Wide roads, mostly packed gravel; my site (505) was 1/2 bubble off level. Wi-Fi worked great. Cable tV worked fine, but limited channels. Weather was horrendous during stay. Rained every day (here 3 days), water everywhere, but when it stopped, it drained quickly. Other comments about location are right on. Shuttles are available for trip downtown. Front desk is knowledgable on sightseeing tours and locations and will make arrangements. Would definitely stay again.
Forget it! First of all it's way off the beaten path. Secondly, for the stupendous price of $43 you get a narrow, unlevel somewhat gravelly site with no sewer. Thirdly, I dealt with two different people at check one was surlier than the other. Wi-Fi was only at the office, but worked fine. Oh, and did I mention the dust? The kids rides all had coin boxes on them. Didn't investigate that area too much, but I see others did. Would not return.
Very handy to all the PA Dutch countryside. Route 30, where it is located is pretty busy, but accessable. The CG itself is excellent. Bathrooms are spotless, showers work well and are spacious. Roads and spots are gravel. The WiFi works fine, quite fast. I was at the end of the park near the roller coaster next door and had no accesss problems.The only thing that kept me from a 10 is the fact that it is on a hill that slopes to a creek. While the sites are pretty level, a little more gravel on the downside of the spots (towards the creek) would go a long way. Except for that, it's great.
Had site 722, a "premium site" which included cable and a better bathroom facility. One of the reasons to lower the rating is the bathroom. It serves 2-4 loops, had 3 showers and 2 toilet stalls. Not very good for a minimum of 80 sites. The other reason for the downgrade is the Wifely and that is for two reasons. One: it was extremely slow (6-50kps) and two: 1980's technology. Instead of a wireless connection, you have to rent a modem, wire it to the cable hookup via a splitter and then use either an ethernet or USB connection to the modem. For all the technology Disney has, this is pathetic. Beyond that, our site was outstanding. Level, wide, wooded with a lot of privacy. And luckily, just a short walk to the ferry terminal to the Magic Kingdom, whoopee doo review an all the restaurants in Ft. Wilderness. Compared to on site hotels and outside CG's this is a bargain. We would definitely stay again.
I see this hasn't been updated for 5 years, so here is a quick assessment of the place. Yes there are still many seasonals. Roads need some improvement, they are dirt/gravel. Site is a level pull through. They have several WiFi towers and they work fine at the site. Just used W&E and they were fine.
Moved here from the KOA West way up north to do Halifax. It's choose your spot from those available, which is nice. Site was level; space between was more than adequate, the staff knowledgeable. Bus service is a 10 minute walk and takes you to the ferry to Halifax. I drove to the ferry terminal and think it is better. Bus only runs once an hour. The downgrade is for two reasons. First, the WiFi worked very sporadically, if at all and they charge $2 to use it. A one time charge no matter how long you stay. Second for the price, I thought the showers should have been free. They aren't. It's probably the best CG in the Halifax area and if we come to this area again, I'd use it.
What a gem of a site. Run by the city of Dalhousie, this park is right on the Gulf of St Lawrence. I don't usually comment on one night stays, but this was so pleasant, I had to do it. They have 40 sites with 15/30 amp, water and sewer. Wi-Fi was very strong and fast. Management was pleasant and helpful. Washrooms and showers were spotless and spacious. The manager told me that during the season, they do fill up, so make reservations. They have 40 RV and 9 tent sites, so it's not too large.
Nice campground. Level site. Free showers. Pay WiFi. There is a small playground for the kids. The way the sites are arranged, there is a fair amount of privacy. Good width to the sites. Some highway noise, but not intrusive. There is a free shuttle bus into View Quebec that makes two trips a day.
To start, this CG is mostly permanent residents. Not necessarily seasonal, but year round. I was in between two. I don't know where the other transient sites are. Mine had everything, but only 20A. Didn't know that till I was backed in. Roads are pretty narrow but paved. Back in required pulling onto lawn of trailer across street. All that said, it was shady, nice and the showers were clean (returnable fee for key). There was Saturday night entertainment. A nice touch. Lots for the kids - playground, sand, a variety of pools, baseball diamond and also all the old timer games. I would have rated it higher, but for the transportation to the city. If you have a toad, no problem, just go to the metro and you will have it made. If not (like me) it's a cab ride (about $25 + tip round trip), then take a bus to the metro (both have single ride or multi-day options) to anywhere in Montreal. Considering that there aren't too many options, I would stay here again
WOW! It is a large CG run by the city of Ottawa. CG is made up of pods with several CG's in a pod. Sites are huge: about 25' wide plus 15' or so off woods on either side of the site. Privacy is great. Sites are gravel and level (mine was less than 1/2 bubble off center). Big playground for kids and lots of open space in central area. Washrooms were very clean. Shower stall (singular in our washroom is correct) is gigantic, about 10' long. The floor is on pallets. WiFi in office area only and strong. Although 25k (15 mi.) west of the city, transportation is not a problem. They have an arrangement with Grey Line to ferry CG patrons to their kiosk, which is right in the heart of things in town. The shuttle is free, a 3 day pass to ride the Grey Line tour is $30. I recommend it. 80% of the tourist things are within walking distance of the kiosk, but the tour bus hits the other 20. And it is a hop on, hop off to see the outlying sights. What a deal. There is one shuttle down in the AM and a return late in the afternoon. Staff is very helpful. The only downside is it's nearness to Hwy 417. Some road noise. It's a gem!
I'll try not to repeat other comments, both positive and negative, but the negative aspects to this CG definitely outweigh the positive. There are two big advantages: accesability to everything in the NYC area, with NJ light rail, PATH and ferry and water taxi's close at hand; and it is the only CG near the city. That said: the roads in and out of the Jersey City area are in terrible shape. Prepare for a very slow last 3 or 4 miles because the main road in is also the main road for the Holland Tunnel with its mile long backups. Marin Ave is the last possible turn before the toll booths. As to the CG itself, the gal who manned the front desk always seemed to be in a hurry and answers to questions were incomplete. That caused some unanticipated problems when going to, or arriving at my destination ( unexpected delays, etc). Showers stalls were the largest I've seen at a CG, and cleaned daily. The showers themselves were in disrepair: broken shower heads, handles off their splines and poor drainage (that caused water and dirt to be tracked into the toilet stalls). I said no to the question of WiFi. The CG had none of their own. I thought for the price, they should have had it for free. There were several connections detected, most were secure. At least one was a pay as you go, and two other unsecure sites that wouldn't connect. Lastly, there is about a 2-3 degree drop from the back of the park to the front, with no attempt to level the individual sites, so bring leveling jacks or plates. Overall, as others have said, this park is convenient to all of the metro NY area, but not a great park.
Wasn't planning on stopping in Thermopolis but I'm glad I did. This park has it all together. The lots are level, there is grass, the Wi-Fi works great, the cable TV is good and all for a reasonable price.
After having read some of the reviews, I'm wondering if I am in the same park. Yes, check-in can be hectic if you arrive at the wrong time of day, but the fact is, they take the time to go over the options in the park, and answer the questions about town. I was given the option of 11 sites and told to let them know which I took. I took site 77. It is level, close to bathouses and Wi-Fi (I can see the transmitter/receiver), is partially shaded and on a wide paved road. The gravel back-in spot is wide enough for the vehicle and I had a 3' concrete pad plus a 12' grass strip to the next pad on my right and an mature apple tree on about a 10' gap on my left. Bathrooms were clean. I have a class C and had no problem backing in from my blind side (I am alone). I definitely would return. In closing: the fact that this was the only CG in the area that was full, has to say something.
I would have given it an 8 if the Wi-Fi worked. They told me that they have had a problem for the last 3 weeks and can't get the outside provider to check the problem. Wi-Fi Rate is $11/day or $25/wk. Pretty steep for a low speed (11 mps). In fairness, the owners were raising cain with the operator and I do believe he is on the way out of here. As to anything else, I had no problem. Bathroom and showers were modern, immaculate and the hot water had softener. Cable TV worked fine, site was level, I had enough room for my slide. The last night I was here (I was here for 5 nights) a 30' class A backed in next to me without problem and he extended his slides with no problem. Owners were helpful and friendly. I'd stay here again.
There really isn't anything that you can say bad about this place. It is close to town but very quiet. There is shopping two blocks away. They have a pool, hot tub, cafe, game room, mini-golf, Wi-Fi is very strong and fast and cable TV worked fine. The gardens (and there are a lot of flowers) are constantly attended. The help was helpful and knowledgeable. I stayed 3 days and would definitely do it again.
Spent three nights here with one of the best views I have encountered for over a month on the road. Site was area "B", up a good hill but the site was as level as they come. Walkable (about 3/4 mile) to the St. Mary Visitor Center for Glacier Park and Going to the Sun Highway. Some of the tour vans stop at the CG, which is handy. Their cafe has great food. Wi-Fi is satellite based, so it is slow. The only gripe I have is the speed of some of the vehicles going through our area. And it is not policed by management. Other than that, it was fine
Everything is as stated in the reviews. Well kept, clean, quiet. The only two gripes I have is my site was about 3 degrees off level and the power and water pole was about 50' from the site. The staff were helpful. Wi-Fi worked well, but slow. I was here two nights. I would return.
Park is on a golf course. Check in was a little hectic because it is combined with golf check-in. That fact left me without any information except site and location. Approach highways and approach road are deplorable. Many holes and bumps. It is also quite a ways from anything. The site was good; power and water were adequate. I would, however, think that for that price, Wi-Fi would be available. Not so. I really would think twice about returning.
I had site B4, just above the office, and I can't be happier. When checking in, I asked about Wi-Fi and she said she'd put me in a sight where I could get it. And she did. Those that complain should at least ask at check in as to the availability. My site was the first one in 34 days of travel that was exactly level. That in spite of the fact that the CG is built into the side of a hill. It's quiet. Folks at the office are friendly and knowledgeable. I didn't care for the 30/20 amp shared power pole (1st come gets the 30 amp). The views are spectacular. It is about a 2k walk to the Olympic Park. The shuttle downtown ($12) was very handy. All told, the only reason I didn't give it a 10 are the roads (gravel) need some work. That said, it is on a hill. I definitely would return.
I agree with previous reviews, except the remarks about the bathrooms. They were old, but clean. Also, they were very private. Each had either a complete room (toilet, sink and shower) or a toilet. The view is spectacular - looking at the Duluth harbor and downtown and the hills beyond. My biggest gripe is how they assign spots. The 3 days I was here there wasn't much activity, but they park units next to each other. Also, and not their fault is the drawbridge horn - for that matter the drawbridge itself. Communication between ships and the bridge are very loud horn toots - at any time. Water & electric were fine, and spaces were wide enough for awnings. All in all, it was a good experience, and I would return.
Yes, it is older, but to me the condition is more important and the condition of this park is being constantly updated. Maintenance was always checking things, bringing things up to snuff (during my stay peeling paint was redone in a bathroom stall). The sites were pretty level, hookups worked fine and sites are wide enough for slides and awnings. And yes, CSX trains come through regularly right next door, but so what. It's quiet otherwise. And best of all, they have a bus to all the area sightseeing. For a buck and a half all day pass, you can go all over the area. I camped here three days in a motorhome
Huge Park, but well maintained. Lots of amenities, especially for kids. Roads are paved;sites are level and wide; restaurant, laundry and store; bathrooms are clean. Everything worked well and yes the Oceana Naval Air Station is right behind he CG and you will have to hold your conversation for a couple of seconds, but they do quit at a reasonable hour. Stayed three days in a motorhome.
Very Large CG, but well run with large spots. Wi-Fi and Cable worked well. Bathrooms were excellent, showers were locked and spacious and clean. Many activities for both kids and adults. Store well stocked. Not really any cons. Would return.
It certainly was quiet, even for November. Only about 2 dozen campers. Rest rooms were clean, although it's strange there was no soap or towels/hand dryers. There is direct access to the beach in a couple of places and at night or when it is quiet, you can hear the surf pounding. Rangers passed through often. The only down side in my estimation was the lack of control over speed limits in the camp area including the rangers. 20-25 MPH was the standard. In fairness, the roads are paved, so there wasn't a dust problem like in some parks.
Put it on your list! It is convenient to I74 and about 5 miles from Mayberry - er - Mt Airy, NC. The previous reviews about modernness are true, the hosts were friendly and helpful (if only I had followed his advice, my water lines wouldn't have frozen). Sits are gravel, wide and offer spectacular views. I only wish it wasn't just an overnight stop. Next time it will be for a few days.
This is a small park, totally open, on Quiddy Bay with all water sites. The biggest pro is the free showers which is very rare in Maine. They were clean, too. The only dislike was the fact that it wasn't crowded, but the owner put all the units close to each other. The park is close to things. The bridge to New Brunswick and Campobello is 5 minutes away. I ate at Uncle Kippy's which had good seafood and was reasonable.
They take credit cards! There are few parks in Maine that accept them that I almost ran out of cash. As to the park, a very nice place to stay. Staff was very helpful. Find a spot and tell them. As previously reported, the have any kind of spot you might want. Field(full sun), completely wooded or a combination of the two. Wi-Fi is only available on top of the hill, but worked well. The FREE shuttle bus stops at the campground and runs to the village green in Bar Harbor where you can connect with other shuttles for trips all over the area. A little cool for swimming, but the pool is large and well maintained. Speaking of maintenance, they are constantly doing things to the property. Looks like a full time employee devoted to it. From the prices I have seen and the conditions related of the other campground parks in the area, the is a pearl.
It is on the backside of Great Bay on the Squamscott River (a tidal river). The biggest negative on the campground is finding the entrance sign. it is small and across a Shell station from the actual entrance. Entrance roads are dirt. Campground roads are packed gravel. They have a dock on the river and a boat launch site. I saw canoes for rent. Sites were fairly level and shaded. It is handy to Portsmouth, the New Hampshire coast and other sites in eastern New Hampshire. I would return again.
I can understand why Woodall's gave them a 5. Lots are paved and surrounded by grass. Excellent playground for kids and adults. Showers are FREE (something rare in Maine). Also something equally rare is they take charge cards. Showers and bathrooms are very clean. They are centrally located and the water is hot. Newspaper was out font in the AM. Very nice.
My lot was large, shaded, private, nice view of the tidal pond and level. The whole CG shows owner's attempt to make it top notch and keep it that way. Not mentioned in other reviews is the fact that they run a scheduled shuttle to the harbor for $1.00. Lots of activities available. Store is well stocked. Owners are friendly. Can't really come up with a negative.
Hear the pine needles dropping? That's how quiet it is. Lovely spot. Easy checkin. Bathroom/shower spotless. Nice pond with center fountain. Paddle boats for rent. Roads are gravel, but encountered no dust. Sites are levelo & grassy Open or wooded, your choice. Beautiful setting. Well maintained. WiFi worked well at campsite. Would definitely stay here again.
I'm sorry I didn't have more time to spend. I was traveling home and stopped for the night. The park is on the Lake Huron side of the Mackinaw bridge in a nice cove. Spots are wide and shaded. Many activity areas - basketball court, beach, etc.It quieted down at 10. They have access to the tourist things in the area. Showers and toilets were very clean. Overall, the CG is well kept , even seasonal sites were kept up. Would stay here again (for longer next time).
Stayed here for EAA Airventure. Shady spots are mostly for seasonals. Balance of CG open. Roads packed gravel, dusty. The good: Sites are large. Room for awnings/slides. And in the area I was in, slightly downhill. Sites in this area were grassy ans mowed. The store is pretty well stocked with convenience items. Although no transient sewer sites that I saw, there is a free dump station. There is a playground for the little ones. For the most part it is quiet. The bad: Showers are old, in need of updating. They were also inconvenient to most of the campsite. Washrooms were old and moderately dirty. There are some very old portable toilets scattered about, Didn't check them. Speed limit is 5 mph, but not enforced. Consequently, a lot of dust as some cars went by at 20/25 mph. Overall, the best thing about this place is that it is one of the closest to the Airventure ground. 2 2/4 miles to the nearest gate. The price is right I would stay here for Airventure again, but not for anything else.
I can only mimic previous reports. The place is huge and mostly seasonal. I checked my odometer when leaving and it almost a mile from the beach to the office (east to west) and probably the same north to south. There is a lot of day activity (I stayed on the lake front) on the weekend, but it didn't interfere with the camping. As stated previously, the campground is mostly for the benefit of the seasonals and they are many. My only complaint and it is minor was that the water tasted like the plastic pipes that carried it. A the beach, there is a small trailer sandwich shop and another on in the central square. The central square is quite nice - a swimming pool, tennis a coffee shop, grocery store, rec hall and large courtyard with picnic tables. I will return.
The cg is laid out in several sections. My lot was fairly level with full hookup. Roads are dirt and makes for a dusty environment when the wind is blowing right. Staff was friendly and helpful. Monitored the park on a regular basis. The park is about a half mile from Hwy. 401 and sometimes you could hear the road noise. but not often and not too loud. Appears to be many permanent residents. They were in an area of their own. A large pond has fish (catch & release). Wash room and showers were clean, free and large. Downtown Windsor is about 25 minutes away. I would stay there again.
Best feature is closest to Denali Park. Right in the middle of the Denali Commercial District. One mile from Park entrance. Walkable in good weather or via free shuttle from hotel across highway. Park is all gravel. Showers are pay type with tokens. Hard to operate and each token was of short duration. Average shower probable would cost $3. I would think twice before returning.
I was here for 5 days in September 2007. It is a great jumping off place to see Fairbanks. Bathrooms were always clean. Always hot water. Showers were spacious and clean. Hookups were easy. Wireless internet worked fine. The park is on the Chena River. Staff is helpful. They will arrange the tourist things and several tours will pick you up right at the park The park also has furnished cabins and a restaurant, They have a breakfast buffet worthy of a king. Cloth napkins and tablecloths too. The food was great and the price reasonable. I would definitely stay there again
Campground is located on Fish Creek (the outlet for Oneida Lake)about 2 miles from Sylvan Beach Sylvan Beach has restaurants and tourist attractions The area is very pretty (I grew up in the area).Syracuse, Utica or Romeare about a half hour from the campground. The campground is quiet. It appears there are many permanent residents, including a retirement section. Roads are stone and in need of more stone. The sites are large enough, but are not too level. Looks like fresh stone on the sites where I was, but the site inclined about 3 degrees down from the front. The area around my site had straw on it. Don't know if it was to cover the mud or grass seed was planted. The park was gated with a security card for entrance. Staff was helpful and friendly. One large disappointment were the showers. For $35 a night, showers should be free. They weren't. The showers were clean, but there was no heat (daytime temps were in 50's; nights in low 40's) and the shower curtains were stiff with age. There are a couple of other campgrounds in the area and I think I would look at them next time.
