Very tight campground. We have a 40 ft so it is accessible, but you need to be very competent in your abilities. Roads approaching campground get very small too. They have few transient sites some in back and some in front. Front sites look across the street at houses that look at the ocean. There is a beach across the street but it served many people and got crowded. There was a small restaurant/ice cream bar on site. This spot is all about location, you could rent a small cottage with the same space for a few $100, so good value if this is where you want to be.
Nice campground, good sized sites. There were tents to 45ft tag axle MH's. We did not partake in any on site activities, though the pools and rec area looked well kept. Our site was freshly paved, though not prepped properly so there were many jack foot craters. Even my 12" squares sank 1" in blacktop. It is located only a couple miles from downtown Falmouth, so plenty of activities. I have a hard time though with a $50.00 deposit for gate key and having to sign 5 times to acknowledge rules and regulations of the campground.
Typical KOA - Nice clean facilities, with the low number of sites the activities were small but still available. This campground was on a nice quiet river, though access is spotty and watch out for poison ivy all along the river bank. There is a marked trail that is maintained for river access. Sites are dirt but fairly level. The town is the largest in the area so good shopping. It is also just north of the White Mountains so there is access to hiking, biking, sightseeing abound.
Oceanside is a great definition. Though only the first row is actually Oceanside, the rest have the smells and sounds only. Those sites fill up fast, like March reservations, and many looked to be seasonal. If looking a beautiful seasonal site, waterfront at Libby's for the summer is a must. For the rest of the sites, it is field camping sloping dirt/grass sites and pretty tight. The location is great, right at the start of Long Sands Beach in York ME. Lots to do, walking, biking, sightseeing and shopping. Portsmouth NH is only 15 minutes away, though with Rt 1 bridge closed it is a bit longer on congested roads.
Typical KOA - Facilities were clean and in good shape. There was a lot of family activities, even midweek. They had some very large pull through sites with new grills and patio chairs, though $85 for a field site is a bit much in my book. Sites were all dirt and not level, most RVs had to have block pyramids under their jacks to level. No matter how I tried I could not use the sewer connect at the back of my site, poo just will not flow up hill.
First seven sites have a direct view of the mountains. WOW. Breathtaking !!! The rest of the sites are very nice too, but typical nice campground sites. We found manager to be very helpful. Location 10 minutes to downtown. Entrance road was as described but we made it in a 40 footer (now we can call her a Mountain Goat) and there was a 42 footer next to us.
We are here for the location. It is the closest to Chicago we could find at 39 miles to Navy Pier. The posts below sum it all up. Could be a really nice park, just needs new owners and an overhaul. Nice quiet location. Our site has 2 sewer connections under our awning, and next to us there is a 30 yr old junk trailer with some one living in it. Not a very appealing park.
We had an open back in site. We had a nice view from our site of the valley and mountains. Nice grassy area though smaller than others. We were with friends that had the largest grass site next to us. The store had basic supplies, pool and there was an on-site restaurant, but we did not eat there. The Cabot trail loop started and ended right there in Baddeck so location was the key. What a BEAUTIFUL DRIVE. One day does not do the drive justice. Do it in both directions. Baddeck village had nice assortment of restaurants and activities. Do not miss Louisbough either.
Typical KOA. Clean, friendly, level, smallish sites. Our site was out in the open and was easy to pull-thru. Wooded back in sites were available. While not a pool goer, the pool seemed quite small. Store had some essential food and supplies as well as good local info. They rented kid trikes and canoe on river with an on site playground. The park is located a few minutes off the highway, only 15 minutes to downtown Halifax, 45 minutes to Peggy's Cove and 90 minutes to Lunenburg.
Stayed in a pull-thru wooded site # 239. Not very level. Also near a wind generator, loud on windy days. Sites #276-304 more level and closer to water for pull-thru all services. The park did have laundry machines. Very beautiful area w/ red dunes, cliffs and beaches. Cavendish area is definitely more commercialized, especially for PEI. Nice vacation town with many things to do. We were there during Hurricane Bill, while the wind blew hard, near the ground it was fairly calm in the camping grove. We rode the ferry from NS over to the island on a beautiful day (free going over) and drove off the island over the Confederation Bridge ($ 56.00) on another beautiful day. PS rate does not include park pass.
This is a Beautiful Place. We stayed in a wooded site #215 30 amp only. There are open or wooded sites, wooded sites tend to be more spread out and much more private. Many activities available from hiking and biking, to swimming and canoeing. We attended some great narrated sessions about the park and surrounding area. Too windy to canoe out to see the seals on island. A bit of drive from almost everywhere but well worth the adventure if you are looking for the outdoor experience. PS rate does not include park pass.
Our site was a large pull-through and was set-up back-to-back. This gave a large grass area for our family gathering, except they put us back to back instead of front to front and would not move us even though there were sites available. When making reservations we asked for "Full hookup" but to them that meant power/water/cable, no sewer. They closed the dump station Friday because it was full and overflowed, still closed Sunday when leaving. They also charged us for the "Carnival Weekend" but failed to tell us they had canceled all the activities and just whined about the corporate office not funding the park when asked for our money back. After several calls and a threat to call our CC company we got the carnival money returned. We will not return.
This is a city RV park. As with most, the draw is not the park but the city. Fairly easy to find and get into. As with most city parks, space is at a premium. The main street is a shopping mecca and downtown is 10-15 minutes away. A bit off the main road and fairly quiet for a city. The staff is friendly. I was warned of High Water Pressure. I will stay again.
Nice, Clean RV Park. Easy to find and get into. As previously posted, sites are concrete, level and of adequate size. This park is perfect for casino goers, but there are no campground recreations, activities or provisions. You have to leave for any needs, hence the "8" score. For casino crawlers, this park is at the west end of the casino strip that ends in Biloxi 30-40 minutes east. Stayed in motorhome, would come again.
If you do not like smoke, look elsewhere. You need to pay attention to find the campground. There is a sharp, steep climb off Route 13. Rough, gravel access driveway, leaving you in the middle of a parking area to check in. Cigarette smoke filled the check in desk, store and has contaminated everything inside, although the store was well stocked. Our site, 204, was at the low end of a field and was very muddy. There were 4 pools and many scheduled activities for kids. The facilities were average to below average in terms of cleanliness and upkeep. The campground had a distinct hill-billie atmosphere from the mud covered golf carts driven by smoking, beer drinking adults, to the crowds of unsupervised children running around. Not a campground I would recommend for a weekend getaway.
The park was well marked and easy to find coming from both directions, well marked parking areas for new arrivals to check in. Nice wooded, un-paved sites with easy utility hookups. Over 34' RV sites are out in a field with pull thru sites available. Campground was quiet with access to a tidal area for canoeing at all but low tide. A nice Rec Hall was on site, but without a pool, this is not a great kid campground. There was a bit of a drive to get to area attractions. NO CREDIT CARDS ACCEPTED.
