The one mile gravel road, if you are towing a car behind a motorhome, is really bad. You have to drive very slowly. The campground is really not that bad. We did not notice the road noise from the interstate, but we were in a motorhome with the AC on at night some. The sites are great and level and the water pressure and electricity are fine. Makes a great overnighter. We enjoyed the buffalo museum and the village. Lots of interesting stuff there. Would definitely stop here again.
There are only two full service campgrounds near the entrance to Theodore Roosevelt NP. This one is run by a foundation. It is a nice park, not great. It is on the river, which is the problem. There was a major flood in early June. All the sites have silt on them. Not a problem when it is dry, but if it rains: WATCH OUT. You will need slip on boots for the family as the mud will build up 3 inches on your feet. This may be the norm for any place around town as the soil contains a lot of bentonite clay. Roads have some pot holes, especially on Bully Circle. As long as it is dry, it is great. But MUDDY when it rains and it takes a while for the soil to absorb the moisture and dry out.
Read the entire rating. Had it not been for the sewer smell, this would have been a 9 or so. The voltage, even though the park was moderately full, was fine. The park is well maintained and grassy. The roads could use a little gravel in some spots, but even after a hard rain, there were only a few puddles and a few pot holes. Maneuvering is OK...very wide. The problem is the septic system. At first, I thought the smell (which my wife and our neighbors noticed) was coming from folks not using collars as most of the travel trailers had their sewer connections hooked up full time. Then I walked around, and the sewer drain field (where the grinder and pumps are located) has a very PUNGENT odor. I had talked to the staff about checking on the folks in front of us for a sewer drain collar and he said, "It is the heat". What he meant is that the drain field does NOT have enough clay cover so that the sewer gases come up. Also the manhole cover is not sealed. The smell is not an issue when there is no wind, but the prevailing wind is from the rear to the front and it blows most of the time. The view is awesome. But if you want to stay outside, then you are at the wind's mercy. As a matter of interest, the tent site area totally surrounds the drainage field. Do not know what the answer is, but the septic system really destroys a great park.
We made an overnight stop here. Great campground. Very well kept. We had a large pull through site with full hook-ups. Owner is very courteous. Grounds are nicely maintained. Did not have any issues leveling. Would stay here for an extended time if there were activities in the area for us.
This campground DOES qualify as a resort. The pads are all concrete. The road is asphalt and there are NO potholes. The roads are wide and the sites are long. We had NO issues getting in or out. All the pads are LEVEL. The restrooms and showers are new, if not, they are so well maintained you would think so. Folks have commented on the trains. We heard the trains and an occassional whistle, but this was not an issue. There are lots of children's activities and the pool looked great. We visited The Henry Ford in Dearborn both days and used this as a base. We would definitely come back and spend more time in the area at this GREAT RV Resort.
This is a luxury Motor Coach resort. It is everything you would ask for. It has a clubhouse with a pool and hot tub and fitness center. It does NOT have public or common showers or bath houses. We were in a very nice and almost new 40 foot motorhome and we were the smallest in the resort. Lots of Prevosts. We got a special FMCA rate (50% off) that runs for the months of May and June. Booking during the "Season", which starts in July, is TOUGH as most owners have come back. The staff is friendly and they have a full breakfast every Tuesday morning and get together. The Petoskey City Park is also nice, but many folks park there fulltime and you MIGHT not get a site.
This is a good overnight campground. We did not have sewer, but did have a pull through and the dump station was convenient on the way out. The Wi-Fi was good, but we were close to the office. Grounds are well kept. There are a LOT of permanent rigs on site. Do not know much about area, but the electric was good and the cable TV was good. There is a river, but there are sites on every foot of it.
The temperatures were in the low 90's and the AC Voltage (we were on 50 amp) was LOW. So much to the point that our voltage protector cut off. Other sites, with protection, were having the same problems. Finally moved to one site and it was low, but above the cut off level. A storm came up and a tree toppled onto a travel trailer. The owners came out and took pictures, but did very little to assist. The owner of the travel trailer did most of the work and finally, with a tractor, got his trailer out of the way. We would probably camp here again, however, for overnight only, there is a Cabelas in Rogers with dump facilities.
Quiet little campground with easy access off the TransCanadad Highway. Had a pull through site, but it was not long enough to keep the towed vehicle hooked up. Campground is clean and was quiet. It filled up quickly on Sunday evening. We just spent the night here, but there are a lot of things to do in the area. The restrooms looked a little small for the number of sites, but were clean. We would stay here again.
Quaint little campground with easy access from the TransCanada highway. There were large (45 ft) rigs in the park: very easy to maneuver and level. Had a problem with our 50 amp breaker as it tripped one day. Very reasonable rates here and close to Truro, plus you can easily drive to Halifax, Peggy's Cove or Burntcoat for day-trips. Very family friendly. Wi-Fi is cheap: good bandwidth and good signal. We would definitely stay here again! Great rates. The lady who answers the phone, takes the reservation. You do not send in a deposit: just trust her. She was very nice and we had a great site!
As far as a place to park your rig and see Prince Edward Island, this is great. This is a typical KOA campground. Wi-Fi is sporadic, but if you use it off-peak, it is ok. A lot for the kids to do and a lot going on. We were here during several days of thunder storms. The roads flooded frequently. They even brought in gravel to fill some large mud holes. Pull through site was very roomy. There is no cable TV and limited broadcast. Some sites along the woods have the satellite blocked out. Since you are so far north, the dish points almost horizontal. There is a State Park nearby, but it will not accommodate big rigs.
We were in the North area. Although we had a site rated for a big-rig, it was tight. Did not see any other sites that would have been better: many would have been worse. The problem comes from the overhanging trees and the fact that the entrances or opening to the sites are not trimmed back. Other than sewer, the site had all the hookups. There are 5 or 6 dump stations so you do not have to wait in line. Great value and also the fact that you are in the woods. Hiking is good around the site. If you go to Hopewell Rocks (a must see), try to have breakfast at the "Dude Ranch" on Hwy 114, it's a great meal. Would stay there again.
The campground, on the ocean or bay side, is fairly roomy. Our site was a little tight to get into due to some rocks and the pier. However, the view was great. Mosquitoes, (yes you're on the water), are hungry! Campground was very friendly and had a "bring your own" food meal one evening. Would stay again, however, not at the site we were on. Other than the backing, the roads and access are very good. Wi-Fi worked well.
There are two sections of this campground: actually two "separate" campgrounds, about 2 miles apart. The "woodlands" section is wooded and quite crowded: sites are very tight! We spoke to campers who said they would only camp on the "ocean" section. We were three sites back from the water and the view was excellent. There is a lot to do here. They have a lobster dinner each night that is comparable to the local lobster pounds. Need to look carefully at the map and know which site you have. We would definitely stay there again. Kayak rentals are cheaper in Acadia park where the waterway is on a lake, but if you want to kayak on the bay, then it is very easy here.
The ocean front sites are unbelievable. We got one where we were less than 100 ft from high tide. Truly one of the most beautiful views we have had. A lot of full timers and part timers were there. Very friendly folks: they have a bring-your-own-food cocktail party on Fridays. Staff is very friendly. Only drawback is that the owner will not allow a hosed-connection at the dump station so you can flush your waste tank. Asked about that and was told a no-no. Be prepared to eat all your evening meals there as the view is so great. Good tables and fire rings.
We camped here on two separate times during a month long trip. It is an adults only campground. Waterfront is wrong! There is a small lake, where the ducks live, and a marsh, where they rent kayaks. You have to go it at high tide, then be back before low tide as the waterway is virtually dry at low tide. Big rig access is very limited. We were in a standard site one night and it was long enough. However, the roads are tight and people park in the street. The second time we visited, we had a pull-through site. There were 45 ft rigs here, but it took a lot of skillful driving to get in without scraping the trees. Our friends drove through and decided it was too tight for their 42 footer...and passed. Wi-Fi is cheap and works good. Overall park condition is good: showers and bath facilities looked a little small for the size of the campground. Go to Ken's Place to eat if you're here, or Bayley's which is nearby and easier to get in and out of.
We spent three nights here in a motorhome. Generally the campground is well maintained. However, we rated it lower due to the "atmosphere". The campground is run like a boarding school. It took an extra 20 minutes to check in due to the owner (who has a reserved parking space with a large Towing Zone sign). There is a deposit on the gate key, which is required to let you out. There are signs everywhere! As to the site: it was large and roomy and the hookups were in great condition. However, the entire campground is covered with Poison Oak and Poison Ivy! You cannot maneuver around the campsites with out brushing your rig into the Poison Ivy which grows like branches on a tree. I am very allergic to it. I made a comment to the staff and they replied they knew it needed to be cut back, but the owner would not understand. This place is very convenient: but if we had to stay there again, we would request a site in the open (non-shaded) area. Had to walk carefully around our motorhome and would have left if the grandkids had been with us, because they would have been in the stuff all the time. Mosquitoes were not a problem.
This campground MORE than lived up to our expectations. The staff was great: very courteous. We used the Late Checkout ($10 fee) to extend our weekend. The bath house was immaculate. Very convenient to I-64 and also to Williamsburg. Sites were GREAT!
May be off on the rate...it is cheap and they give a Sr. Citizen discount. Camped in the "newer" or alternate section with a 36 ft Class A. There were only a few sites (less than 10) in both loops that would work for us. A lot of construction going on and making major improvements. Great place to relax and chill out. Although there is no direct water hook-up, we had enough hose to fill our tank at the site. Bring your tow vehicle or be prepared to walk. We hiked a lot. Trails are well maintained and well marked. Scenery is beautiful. Park Rangers were very helpful in letting us find a site for the MH. Will go back there again. You need to get there on Thursday during the summer season or early Friday AM as the sites fill up. Also, carry a prepaid phone card. Cell phones do not work here, but there are public phones available.
Camped for 8 nights: got the AAA rate. As good as we remember from the 1980's. If you have a golf cart, trailer it. You do not need a tow vehicle. Bicycles are great for getting around. Chose the preferred sites near the Settlement Trading post (loop 400). This was within easy walking distance of the boat and bus stops. Need to get in early to verify that your MH will work on the sites. Some have trees that limit the slides and awnings. Also: Disney does not book the long, paved sites properly. Need to call the "front desk", ask for Fort Wilderness and then they will "relocate" you. If you have guest flying in, the Disney Magic Express will pick them up at the airport. We took down the grandkids and flew in the parents. What a relief not to have to drive to the airport to pick up and drop off. There are several independent blogs you need to read. Remember: Golf Carts rent for $40 - $50. Not cheap.
Beach is FABULOUS for toddlers and children. BEWARE of COPPERHEAD SNAKES near the Beach Front Sites. They like to "sun" on the pads and will crawl back into the vegetation on the dunes. This was ONE incident. The other campers had NOT seen any snakes, but Camp Management is aware. This is NOT pointed out in the literature. (Disney's Ft. Wilderness has a Section on reptiles). Overall a great place. Used as a stop over from NC to Ft. Wilderness: BOTH WAYS. If time had not been a factor, would have spent a few more days here. Weather and beach was great.
