I was there over July 4th. There was a horse group and a tractor show there as well as square dancers. I was told to look for site 4W but was surprised that there were so many there when I was told it was just going to be myself and 1 other person. One person told me I couldn't park with the horse people but I actually had made a reservation and the site I was told to take was occupied. I ended up parking on the side of a hill which made for an uneven site side to side. Ended up popping the pad off of a levelor because of the soft ground. It was a typical fairgrounds except for the hilly site. Quiet at night and the utilities worked well.
Rate reflects the weekly rate. Very nice campground. All sites and grounds are very neat. I was in site 37 under the trees. There are about 5 or 6 Wi-Fi networks but if I even connected I never stayed connected very long. I used my Verizon hotspot. They even bring firewood around for sale which I thought was a very good idea. The person that is generally in the office should probably have a different position. He gave me the rates in US and CA. I am from the US, why would he quote me a Canadian rate? Almost like a robot. I've been in maybe 400 campgrounds and have never seen so many people come in just for a regular weekend without a special event. An enjoyable stay.
Price reflects Senior Pass price. The volunteer host was more than accommodating. Very nice shaded level site. Dump station is closed for an extended time. If you are coming from the south: turn north on to NC 58 and proceed about half a mile making a left turn on to VFW Rd. I think the sign says something like National Forest Recreation Area, but doesn't specifically say Cedar Point. I went by and had to make a u-turn. If you are coming from the north the signage is correct.
The sites are large and level. The whole area is all grass and well kept up. There are some mobile homes and seasonal campers, but everything is very neat. It is very quiet there at night. I came and stayed for the races on Sunday night at Sportsman's Speedway which is right across the street and owned by the same people that own the campground.
Rate was with Passport America discount. Mainly permanent residents. Lots of speed bumps. They had saved a sort of pull through site for me. Not a very good place for big rigs. It was very quiet there. All of the utilities worked well. I would stay there again if in the Mobile area.
The new owners are improving the park. They are very receptive to suggestions and will try to make everyone happy. We stayed during First Monday Trade Days. The RV park is about 5 miles from Canton so it is a convenient place to stay. Level sites with good power. Some permanent residents but most sites were neat and clean. Some road noise from I-20 which is about .3 miles away which also makes for easy on and off access. Lots of room for big rigs. I would stay here again if going to Canton.
About what you would expect from a fairgrounds. We stayed in the area with long term residents so there were some messy sites. The other choice was to stay on the pavement near the buildings. Easy off of I-30 but the road is under construction so there is road noise.
Huge sites right by the Mississippi River. Only about 8 sites were occupied when I was there. Extremely quiet except for a little tug boat noise when pushing barges up river. Verizon phone service was spotty. As you would expect there were lots of trees but I was able to get the portable Direct TV dish locked in from a site closest to the river. I would stay here again.
Rate was with the Passport discount. They charge you an extra $5 a night if you are a 50A unit whether you want the 50A or not. Some story about dragging the power down on the 30A hookups. I've been in over 400 RV parks and never heard about this before. Very nice park. Some residents do go to work early so there is some traffic noise. During the time period I was there they turned away people every night, so be sure to call ahead.
Nice level spot by the river. Some noise from trains and I-88 but not bad. No one in the office when I got there. I had called ahead and was told what site to take. Had to go back to the office twice to pay.
Rate is the Passport rate. About 4 miles off of I-81. Maybe 2 miles from I-40. Lots of noise from I-40. Strictly a level place to park for the night. Self service. You arrive and call the owner. He gives you instructions how much and where to pay. You open the gate and let yourself in. Close the gate behind you. Lots of permanent residents. Good electricity.
Very pretty campground. No good for a 38 ft motorhome. Reserved a site that was up a hill. Most sites in this loop are not level at all. Had to disconnect and drive back to the entrance to get a different site. It was still hard to get into. 50A power is good. I was warned by the c/g host to be quick about it or I might get a ticket for leaving my motorhome by the bath house. It is maybe 5 miles off of I-81 down a long grade part of the way. Roads are typical PA back roads, rough. Not many radio stations, no chance of getting satellite TV. Verizon phone and 3G worked well.
An older park with many permanent residents. Lots of noise from I-81. Site was fairly level, electric was good. The grass needed attention. The June storm knocked down trees by the natural entrance to the cave. If you take the first tour of the day you will see a spectacular site never seen before the storm. The cave has many formations.
Rate is the Passport Rate which I was given even though it was a Saturday and Sunday stay. Mainly self service. Owner was very accommodating. Not a good place for a large rig. The park is very hilly and terraced. I stayed in site #4 which was fairly level and I was able to get a satellite signal with a portable dish. It is about 7 miles off the interstate on a 2 lane road on the top of Lookout Mountain.
Very nice campground. Kept up very well. Very busy over a July weekend but quiet at night. Every one was friendly. Lots of activities. A word of caution. If you are coming from the west there is just a small sign hanging on the back side of the mail box. Even going slow I missed the entrance. I went about a mile and turned around at the entrance to the high school. Coming from the west heading east there is a guard rail at the entrance. My motorhome is 38 ft and I am towing an extra cab pickup. Without going into the oncoming lane of traffic I swang as wide as I could and still hit the back door, bedside and fender flare on the guard rail. Be cautious when entering this campground.
The rate reflects a weekly rate. The campground is very nice. Lots of seasonals, but everyone was friendly. The sites we were in were shaded. Very convenient to Brimfield. The roads could use some work as there are some potholes. My site had 50A plugs and breakers but they had been disconnected. The voltage was low. I think it would have been a real problem if it had been hot during the weekend when all of the seasonals were there and a rally was going on. We use the Hughes Autoformer so it wasn't a problem for us.
Rate reflects the Passport America rate. I am used to paying way less for sites out in the country. The campground is very nice and well cared for. Many seasonals, but most were empty all week. The road on the way in could use some work on the potholes. We arrived July 5th. The voltage was only about 110V. I think if the campground had been full and everyone was using their a/c there could have been a problem. The whole transient area was almost empty the rest of the week so the power wasn't an issue. We were told by a seasonal resident that there was some sort of a electrical problem over the 4th of July weekend when the c/g was full.
Stayed here over 4th of July. I was in the meadow. Mostly seasonals. Very quiet. Convenient to the Stormville Flea market. The road in really needs to be repaved as there are potholes and in some areas the pavement is gone.
Rate reflects a weekly rate. Older campground but everything worked. Coming from the north you have to descend a long hill and then cross a 1 lane bridge. Leaving the campground could be a challenge as when you pull out, there could be someone coming up the hill around the curve. Roads could use some work. Pretty convenient to Quakertown.
I stayed here over Memorial Day weekend. Not many places honor the Passport rate over a holiday weekend but they do. Lots of noise from I-81. The campground is in one part of the storage area for new and used RV's. I did not see any units that could have been considered used for parts. A short walk found a dumpster to dispose of trash. There is a complete RV parts and service dept. It was an adequate place to stay. I didn't feel like I was locked in or unsafe at any time during my 3 day stay here.
Rate is the Passport rate. Beware that the Passport discount is only for 2 days now during the week. We were camped on the Island Circle. They mix tent campers with RV's. When I opened my door I had a tent and fire close by. I had to close my windows as many tent campers like to have a fire all day long. I asked for a site where I could get my dish on the roof up. I had to switch sites with my friend as I could not get my dish locked in, on the site I was assigned. There is an open flat area in the center that had a huge motorhome on it for 4 days. The rest of the area was empty. For some reason they don't use these fairly level, water and electric sites. Instead they place you amongst the tents in sites that are unlevel. If you have jacks you have to use a block under the jack. If you don't, you have to build a ramp for the front tires. The WiFi worked well. The water and electric were good. The resort is busy but very nice. The grounds are well manicured. Had lots of activities.
The above rate reflects the Passport rate. We weren't charged any extra for electricity. This park is adequate for a couple of nights stay. It is pretty remote. There was no Verizon service anywhere near this campground. The site I was in was out in the open and not too level. It did rain some over night but not enough to be muddy. There are quite a few seasonals here.
Rate reflects Passport America rate. The only thing that could be better is if the office had given me a choice of sites. I was in a site that was shaded on 3 sides and didn't even try my dish. There were sites in a different area that were open. There are water and electric sites as well as full hookups. There are about 90 sites with a golf course on the same property. The place is kept as nice as I have ever seen in the over 300 campgrounds I have been to. The pool is very nice as well as the laundry and rest rooms. It is very quiet. There isn't too much to do in the area in my opinion but this c/g is great for a few day stay. There is a Wa-Mart and town about 4 miles away. The WiFi was free. Internet Explorer said it was a trial and would only work for a few minutes but I stayed connected for hours. One of the nicest c/g's I have ever been to.
Everyone we met here was very friendly and helpful. The campground is older with shady sites. Many seasonals. The hookups are not in normal locations. I didn't use the water so I can't comment on the lack of pressure. The electrical issues mentioned in another review must've been taken care of because the voltage was the highest I have ever seen. Not sure about the amperage as I have no way to measure it. Leaving was a challenge with a 38 ft motorhome. I wasn't sure if I was going to get around the loop at the end or have to back up and find a different exit. After a couple of tries I did get out OK. Convenient to Camping World, Sam's Club, Super Walmart and Concord. Many antique shops heading east on 202.
During the weekend when we stayed there in July it was very busy with people coming and going. Lots of kids on bikes and on foot. There is one area where you might get a dish on the roof to work but not where we parked. We were camped in a heavily wooded area and one night about 10 PM a small dead branch landed on the roof of the motorhome. Lots of seasonals but it is very quiet during quiet hours. Pretty quiet all week too. They have a complimentary limo to take you to the commuter train station which takes you to South Station in Boston. There is a narrow road the last 1/4 mile or so before you reach the campground and also a narrow bridge. The staff is very friendly and helpful. They recommended a young girl to tend to the animals so we could spend the whole day in Boston. The rate above is a weekly rate for a 30A full hookup back in site.
We have stayed here 3 times. We have always parked at the edge of the parking lot to the left when entering coming down Market St. The streets are narrow with some low hanging limbs you have to avoid if you are in a big rig. There are 50A sites at the edge of the parking lot where you are parked on pavement. Quite a bit of activity on the weekends. There are other sites scattered around the park that are not on pavement. They are probably muddy after a rain. Good value for the money.
Stayed here under Passport for the first night and Good Sam the remaining nights. It averaged about $20 a night. A very nice park with more than accommodating owners. Some road noise and a distant train are the only things I didn't like. Huge level sites. The park is only a few years old. I will stay here again when I am in this area.
I did see 1 loose dog without a collar. Basically a parking lot with side by side hookups. Lots of long term residents. Good for a 1 night stop. The Wi-Fi was on, but we could not get on the internet. We ate the dinner buffet on a Tuesday night for less than $6.
This is pretty much a self service campground. I called ahead, left a message and had to call again later in the day as I was never called back. I was told to take a site and someone would come around to collect. This is really like 2 separate campgrounds. The lower level by the river is grassy and has 30amp sites with water. The upper level is just a flat, filled in gravel area with 50amp, water and sewer. All back-in sites on the upper level. There is a picnic table and concrete slab at each site. The Wi-Fi is very good. The sign said $25 a night or $100 a week for the upper section. $20 a night or $75 a week for the lower level. I stayed in the upper level. The trains come by about every 3 hours. I can't imagine how loud the train noise must be in the lower level. The upper level laundry and bath house is brand new. It was fine for me. Not a KOA, which is right down the road.
The person that did the last review is correct in that there is a steep hill and hard corner to the left. The road coming in to the Exhibition Coal Mine is narrow and some crooked. I was told to come to the Rahall Company Store first. I checked in, paid the deposit for the key, unhooked my tow vehicle and was able to make it up to the campground without any problems in my 38 ft m/h. Big rigs come in and out pretty often. One thing was odd: I could not find the water and sewer hookups. It turned out they were under the rear of my m/h. It is very nice here. The only thing I didn't like was several barking dogs that lived somewhere down the hill. It is conveniently located for the tour as well as anything else in Beckley.
I called on 8-22-2009 and was told there were primitive electric sites available. The young girl checked and said there would be no reason to make a reservation. When I arrived the next day before noon I was told there was a dog show and the only sites available were in a field without electricity. I have been in over 300 campgrounds and this is the first time I have ever had this happen.
This is a very nice campground. The site I was in was pretty level. Route 627 has a downgrade beside the campground. Trucks use their Jake brakes descending the grade. Next to the campground is a working quarry. There is more noise here than just about any place I have been. If you want a quiet place during the day, this is not it.
