This is an incredibly scenic CG. Unfortunately, we had overcast skies and didn’t always get a good view of the mountains around us. We camped here in 1990, and we finally got back after 17 years. Many seasonals along Stony Fork Creek which is where our site was. Nice rippling of the water as we sat outside by the camper. We were way down the end of the CG. Most people camped by the lake. Probably would be better to get a site by the lake if we came again. Not much to do at the CG. We were there from Wed. – Fri. Maybe more activities on the weekend. Bathhouse by us was new but made of cinder block and not as nice as it could be. The bathhouse by the office is much nicer. Store was not stocked that well. No Verizon cell phone service at CG. Nice pool up on the hill by the office which gave great views of the surrounding mountains.

Extremely clean CG right at the base of the roller coasters at Cedar Point. Very sterile looking though - not like a normal CG more of a resort. We were at site 238 which was next to “Mean Streak” roller coaster. Good site but it was still a long walk to the park. If you go, look to stay in sites 284-321. This is a little closer to the park. We went to a bath house close to the swimming pool, to shower one morning, and the showers were terrible. They were dirty, and the drains were blocked so you showered in a couple inches of water. There is another very modern bathhouse in section 284-321. Needless to say, we showered there from that point on. Great long cement pads at each site that could fit a camper and truck. Fantastic amusement park.

Nice CG near Canton, OH. All the sites were well laid out, and fairly level. Good amount of overnight campers versus seasonal. Bathrooms were a little dated but sufficient and always clean. Probably one of the most consistently clean CG bathrooms that we’ve ever been to. Nicely stocked store. There was a real nice restaurant in the CG that served full meals. We got ice cream in a cone that was supposed to be a small for $1.50. The size was really like a triple scoop. Can’t imagine what a large must have looked like! Great planned activities for kids. They had a NASCAR weekend with “RC” races and box car races running with cardboard box cars around a course. Would definitely stay at this CG if we were in the area again!

Nice basic campground. There are very few seasonal campers. This is a great location for sightseeing or hiking in the Catskills. Only 5 minutes off the NY Thruway. Some sites were a little tight but not bad. The store was stocked with the basics. Bathrooms were clean throughout the entire Columbus Day weekend. CG hosts were very accommodating and helped with directions around the area. One negative is that there were very few scheduled activities for kids. This may be different during the summer months. There was an old fire engine ride that parents and kids both enjoyed.

This was a very nice campground. It is large with over 400 sites but most of them are seasonal. There were probably 50-60 sites for transient campers. If you have a young family there really is no need to leave the CG. They have 3 pools with a very nice playground area and tennis and basketball courts. Nicely stocked store. The bathrooms were dated but were always kept clean. This was one of the only campgrounds on Cape Cod that allowed campfires and also had a pool. This was one of the reasons we chose the CG but I would consider this a top notch CG anywhere in the country. You are at the bottom end of Cape Cod. Driving time to two of the attraction areas on the Cape…… Provincetown - 1 ½ hours and Hyannis - 30 minutes. I highly recommend this CG!

This CG is expensive at $65.00 per night but worth it! We were right on the Western Bay of the Atlantic Ocean. Beautiful scenery every time we stepped out of our camper. During low tide you’re able to walk far out along the rocks looking at all the “sea creatures” that you can find. More of a high end CG probably because of the cost. There were quite a few large motorhomes and 5th wheels in the park. I don’t think there were any seasonal campers. Well stocked store and extremely clean bathrooms. The bathrooms and individual showers had piped-in music and foam soap dispensers in each stall. Never saw this before. The entire staff was very friendly and helpful when asking questions about the area for sightseeing and eating. There was a shuttle bus that came right to the CG and it would take you to different parts of Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. This would be an especially nice perk if you had a motorhome and did not have a car to travel around in. Overall, I would highly recommend this CG. I seldom give a CG a “10” rating but I think this one deserves it!

Went over Memorial Day weekend. The campground was full with the holiday and demolition derby that they have at their arena. The theme weekends are great (rodeo, monster trucks, concerts etc.). The bathrooms were always clean and the staff is very helpful. I will be back to enjoy this campground again.

Hemlock is a very nice, basic, family oriented CG. There are a large number of seasonal sites. All wooded sites. Quite a few pop-up and tent sites at the bottom of the CG but not that many for RV's. Playground area could use some updating. Bathrooms were always clean. Only one bathhouse for the entire CG but that was never an issue during our stay. Small heated pool. Small store with lots of souvenirs. Very friendly owners. We even received a post card in the mail when we got home thanking us for our stay.

We liked Pirateland. This was our first trip to Myrtle Beach. The CG is big! Maybe too big. It's difficult to be part of the activities because you are so far from the activity area. Yes, we agree with other posts that there is a lot of golf cart traffic and there is sand in the showers - you are at the beach! I think the golf cart traffic is the same at most MB CG's. I was ready to blast the CG because the site they originally put me in was supposed to accommodate my slide and awning. It wasn't even close. Expecting a fight when I asked to change my site the next day, the office was just the opposite - very helpful. They put me on a much larger beach site. As an FYI...if you want to stay in the beach area, when facing the ocean, the sites to the left of the main road driving to the ocean are much more spacious than to the right. I drove through Ocean Lakes to see what it was like. It seemed like a little city. If you are looking to be involved with some of the activities, Pirateland and the other big CG's are probably not the place for you. The CG store was the best stocked store I have ever seen in my 16 years of camping. Even better than Ft. Wilderness at Disney. Lazy River pools was nice and the main pool was good except no shade anywhere! The roads were all paved and very nice to ride bikes around the CG. It can be very windy so be prepared to put down your awnings. The beach was beautiful and not too crowded that it would be hard to find a spot at any time of the day. Pirateland would be a good choice and we would go back again if traveling to Myrtle Beach.

We camped here because we thought both of our boys were going to bring friends and they allow tents. The CG is basic. Site we had was Lilac and it was a good size and fairly easy to get into. Negative was that we could not reach the sewer connection because of placement. The store was stocked well, good activities on Sat & Sunday with a band and DJ. The owners were very nice. The big negative that dropped the score on this CG is that there is only 1 bath house for the entire CG. 3 showers and very tight stalls for you know what. If not for this, we would have rated it an 8.

The campground was quite small. We could not open our slide out and awning due to fence posts on each side of the site. All sites were pretty much the same. The 2nd biggest problem was that there are railroad tracks that are in the back of property and what a noise!!! Passenger trains and loud freight trains all through the day and night. We also asked to change our site since it was on the road and got an attitude from the girl behind desk.

Very nice CG! Large in size. Sites up on the hill give a beautiful view of rolling farmland fields. Check for seasonal occupancy. They have a Great Pirate Ship playground only 25 yards away from sites. Pool and office require a car or hilly bike ride or walk to get to because of the distance. This is the only bad thing about this CG. Clean bathrooms. The store is well stocked but, not their fishing pond! I would definitely go back!

We camped at this CG for about 5 years straight. Excellent all around CG. Very spacious sites with friendly staff. Good weekend entertainment from DJ's to bands. Theme weekends throughout the summer. They have a full size rodeo and demolition derby right in their CG drawing a good crowd for all these events. Excellent time. Make sure you book early for these weekends.

The CG has 1200 sites. The weather was poor when we stayed so this might have affected our rating. 3 night minimum on weekends. Not as much to do as we expected. 20 mins away from Ocean City and Wildwood. The store was very well stocked and expensive. CGs in Wildwood and Ocean City would probably be a better bet due to location closer to amusements at those boardwalks. The sites are pretty good sized but they are crammed close together. Pool and lake are nice.

The campground was mainly for people to come and move on to sightsee. The sites were good size. Not much to do. No planned activities. The store was well stocked and the bathrooms were very clean and some of the nicest I have seen at a CG.

We were about 10-15 from Niagara Falls. The campground was mainly for people to come and move on to another destination. The sites were fairly close together. Not much to do. No planned activities. They had a nice basketball court with different bank shot baskets. Our son loved being able to dunk on the smaller one. The store was well stocked and the bathrooms were very clean and new.

Very nice campground. Lets start with the only negative too spread out. Most of the activities are on the lower level. It is necessary to drive to store, game room etc. They have 2 pools upper and lower levels along with tennis court on upper level with jacuzzi. Store is well stocked and expensive. They have a very nice and free exercise / weight room. Great sites in the 1500 section. Most of the tourist activities are nearer to Strausberg, PA

This is a perfect way to get around Disney at a fair price. We stood in off season and paid only $47/nigh. We last camped at Ft. Wilderness in 1989 and paid $33/night. Only a $14/night increase in 13 years. Not bad! The site we had was a little tight to get into but once in, there was plenty of room. You cannot beat this CG for the convenience. There was a mosquito problem that kept us from sitting out at night.

This is a strong seasonal CG not great for a weekender. There is really nothing to do at the CG. Very few activities. Although the bathrooms were clean they did not have enough water pressure to flush toilets or give a good shower. They did have a nice snackbar area but everything else was very basic. We stayed in a travel trailer Memorial Day 2004.

I camped at Appalachian CG for the first time in 2004. I have been camping with my family since 1989. Appalachian CG was a very pleasant experience. The bathrooms were not great but the rest of the CG was very good. I stood during NASCAR weekend in August. My son and I had a great time. I usually stay a Mountain Springs in Shartlesville. This CG was a nice surprise!
