First the good stuff. This park is convenient to I-95 just north of Richmond. It is well laid out, sites are reasonably level and roomy. Many tall trees provide shade, but do not reach RV roofs. Bath houses are modern and spotless. Roadways and sites are gravel, there are picnic tables and fire rings at each. Cable TV is very good, electrical service and water connections are also top notch. We didn't use the park's Wi-Fi, so I have no comment on that. There isn't a lot of bad stuff, but here it is: Closeness to I-95 does make for consistent road noise. Many of the sewer connections are high and may be higher than some RV sewer drains. Since water has a problem running up hill, this may require the time consuming job of frequently lifting the hose to empty it. Primarily due to the location, we've stayed here before and will most likely stay here again.
This is a well-run KOA with mostly level sand/gravel sites and interior roads. Sites are of decent size, the cable TV is very good, and Wi-Fi is Tengo, so there is a fee. This is our 4th visit here, and the only negative is the relatively high camping fees, which are typical for KOA. We were there during Hurricane Sandy and the campground suffered no damage except for a few potholes on the roadways which were graded out the next day. Restrooms and showers are modern and spotless, and there is a diesel/gas station and an RV-sized car wash right outside the gate.
This is a lovely little campground in an 1100 acre county park that was once the estate of a member of the Reynolds tobacco family. Interior roads and sites are all paved and sites are all full-hookup. There is lots of space between sites, the trees are high and not obstructive. Some sites are not level, but when making reservations you can select a level or non-level site. Restrooms are rustic but spotless. Recreational activities within the campground are limited, but the park offers two 18-hole golf courses, two lakes, a tennis center, horseback riding, a playground, a pool, and many other things to do. There is no campground store, but there is a supermarket just down the road. The park is located off I-40, 10 minutes from Winston-Salem. There is no traffic noise to speak of. This is one of those campgrounds we wish we could find everywhere we travel with our RV.
Sites are stuck into this complex campground wherever they marginally fit, some at very strange angles. The sites in the "pull-through" area exit directly onto the public road, making security a potential issue. The sites are concrete and level, but in the pull-through area the grass strip separating the sites is barely 6 feet wide, and between some there are trees to maneuver around. Some of these sites, however, are long enough to accommodate the longest rig combinations. The park is located above the interstate, so the hum of highway noise is a constant. On the plus side: the restrooms are spotless and the park is convenient to Biltmore and downtown Asheville. I wouldn't rule out staying here again, but I would definitely first look for something better.
Typicsl of parks in urban or busy tourist areas this park has somewhat narrow roadways and minimal space between sites. We had a pull-through with a tree tight against the left side of the site. In order for our living room slide to be clear of the tree, we needed to park towards the front of the site, which was too far for our 40 ft. of sewer hose to reach the sewer inlet. Since we were staying just a few days, we were able to back up to the sewer and dump our tanks before we left. The park is well-maintained, sites reasonably level, although backing into some of the spaces looked like it would be a challenge. The restrooms and showers are modern and spotless. The park is about one mile off the main drag of Pigeon Forge, which makes it convenient to the tourist attractions, but far enough away to be quiet.
This is a very popular campground for RVers heading south. We were here 4 days and every afternoon rigs were coming in. Very convenient to I-77 and I-81, but far enough off the highway for a quiet night's rest. The restrooms and showers are modern and spotless. The cable TV is fine, and the Wi-Fi is okay most of the time. Sites are gravel and reasonably level, with enough space between sites. A majority of sites seem to be pull-throughs. No issue here with seasonal campers, at least in mid-October. Staff was friendly, but no escort to sites, but I didn't think an escort was needed. Overall, this is one of the best campgrounds among the hundreds we've stayed in.
This is a older, but well-maintained campground. Most sites are gravel, and although there are large trees among the sites, the low branches seemed to be well-trimmed and didn't present a problem. There are just a few pull-through sites, and some of the back ins are a bit tight, but knowledgeable staff was on hand to assist. Sites are reasonably level. Interior roadways are well-paved and signage to the campground is quite adequate. We were here in off-season, although the campground seemed quite busy. The entrance area is a bit narrow, so I can see how it could get backed up during high season. Some sites have hookups on the off-side of the rig. Our sewer was on the left. The water, power, and cable were on the right. But this wasn't a big issue in hooking up. The rates are a bit high, but I've paid more for less.
After reading the previous two reviews I needed to check to make sure I stayed at the same campground. Although the pull-through sites are a bit narrow, I've certainly seen narrower. The back in sites seemed roomy and many are in decent shade. The park is well-maintained, the staff is friendly and accommodating. There are all sorts of scheduled activities for kids, including rides on a fire engine and a tractor-pulled wagon. Yes, the campground is in a rural area -- it is, after all, a campground. Using Springfield in the name is a bit of a stretch, but it is 20 minutes from the center of Northampton. Signs leading to the park from every direction are plentiful, and anyone following the directions provided on the reservation confirmation shouldn't have any issues getting to the park. Wi-Fi worked well, and the cable TV is adequate. We would definitely stay here again.
If you are looking for an "RV Resort" look elsewhere. If you are looking for a rustic campground in the woods, read on. The interior roads are steep, unpaved, tight, and very rough. The trees are trimmed back enough to permit big rigs access with no roof damage. And some sites look like they will accommodate big rigs without too much hassle. Other sites however, will make entry and exit a serious challenge. On the plus side, the Wi-Fi works well and the cable TV is terrific. The trees make for good privacy on most sites. I don't think satellite dishes will work well with all of the trees. There are a fair number of seasonal campers here, but that's really not an issue. We stayed here during the week and the nights were quiet.
This is a nice campground in a Saint John Municipal park located 5 minutes from the center of town. Sites are gravel/grass, fairly level, and reasonably roomy. Although there is no pool, there is a swimming beach on the nearby lake. WiFi was weak from our site (#38). The roadways coming into to the park from the Trans Canada Highway and the city are through a residential neighborhood and quite hilly. The signs showing the route are small and may be hard to spot. There is a restaurant in Rockwood Park, a short hike from the campground. There is an attendant or security guard at the campground gate 24/7. This is a good location for exploring Saint John and the Bay of Fundy area.
This is a long, narrow campground with a mix of campsites. We were in a pull-through in a mostly transient area, and the one bath house was about half a mile from the site, and if I'm exaggerating it isn't by much. There are quite a few seasonal folks here, mostly in the wooded, back-in sites, and some of those sites seem to be available for transients. The grounds are well-maintained, the bath house was clean and large enough to handle the number of campers. Wi-Fi worked well, but off-air TV reception is very limited. Location is convenient to both Ellsworth for shopping and the usual services, and Bar Harbor/ Acadia National Park. The $45 rate shown doesn't include the Good Sam discount, but this is one of the more reasonably-priced campgrounds in the popular Bar Harbor area.
This is very nice campgroound along a narrow portion of the Annapolis River. Sites are grass and reasonably level. I checked "no" on "Family friendly park" because the owner considers this park a seniors camp, although there appear to be no formal age restrictions. About half the sites are taken with seasonal campers, but we found them to be quite friendly. There's a nominal fee for wifi, which worked very well and a fee for cable TV, which was a pleasant surprise for campgrounds in the maritimes, where off-air antennas generally get just one or two channels. The cable here is full-service, including digital channels from the US. Restrooms are rustic but clean. Most transient sites are in an open area, but we were able to get a river front site, in the shade, for our 3 day stay. The owner is quite helpful and accommodating, but be warned, credit or debit cards are not accepted as payment.
This is a mostly rustic campground that has been in business under the same family management for 50 years. The 5 pull-through sites closest to the road are in an open area, but there are many nice sites back in the woods. The traffic noise in the front sites isn't too bad at night. The restrooms are rustic but clean, and there is a fee for using the shower ($1 for 10 minutes). The staff is friendly and helpful, and the location is terrific, about 10 minutes from Peggy's Cove and about 40 minutes from Halifax. There are several wi-fi repeaters, and the wi-fi was decent at our site. TV reception on the antenna was very poor. The owner told me that there are about 40 seasonal campers among the 150 sites, so that didn't seem to be an issue.
This is a rustic campground operated by a local hunting and fishing club. Several end-to-end sites are right on the lake (our rig is parked 15 feet from the water). Sites are grass, some are in shaded areas, most seem reasonably level. Previous listings show some 50 amp service but the current campground map has 50 crossed out and replaced with 30. Washrooms and showers are rustic, but clean. Lots of water activities are available including swimming and canoe rentals. The park is 5 minutes from Sherbrooke, a small town with two service stations with diesel pumps and a small supermarket. The lakefront site we're in is very nice and we would stay here again if in the area.
This campground is convenient to St. Anthony and the nearby attractions. The best sites are occupied by seasonal campers, but the transient sites aren't bad. We're in a grass site that is reasonably wide and long enough to accommodate our 32 foot RV and the tow vehicle. The sites seem reasonably level. Wi-Fi was awful, and our site is 50 feet from the office. Antenna TV signal is poor. Our cell phone shows no service here, but I don't know if that's provider specific (we use Verizon). Restrooms are clean and modern. We would camp here again if in the area.
The areas of this park suitable for big rigs is a gravel parking lot with hookups. Other, mostly unserviced sites, are in attractive, shady spots that appear to be very nice. The restrooms are modern and clean, the staff friendly and helpful. The location is terrific for exploring the Gros Morne National Park. The Wi-Fi at our site was not accessible, but it was very strong a short walk away in a covered pavilion. Grocery supplies in Rocky Harbour are limited, so if you plan to stay a while, be sure to stock up before you get here.
This is a very nicely laid-out campground in a rural area. Sites are roomy and separated from neighboring sites in a way that assures privacy. Very convenient to the Nova Scotia ferry so its a good spot to stay upon arrival on the island since the ferry gets in late in the afternoon. The owners and staff are Newfoundlanders -- extremely warm, friendly and helpful. Wifi is among the best campground wifi we've experienced. Restrooms are clean and well cared-for. The park is nestled in the Cordroy Valley which is a very pretty setting of mountains and rivers. Antenna TV reception is quite limited. We would definitely stay here again.
This is a nice campground on a terraced mountainside with a great view of northern Lake Bras D'Or and the Seal Island Bridge. The Wi-Fi at our site was very strong and off air TV provided 3 stations. Sites are wide and reasonably level. Bathouses are clean and modern. The firewood sold at the campground is a big bunch, complete with kindling and paper. The daily rate of $49 doesn't reflect the KOA member discount, but (in my opinion) is quite steep, especially early in the season. The location is convenient to the Cabot Trail and not too far from Baddeck. Decent grocery shopping is in North Sidney, about 12 miles away, which is also where the Noufoundland ferry terminal is located.
This is a very nice campground on a picturesque bay. Quite a few grass sites are right on the bay. The new owners are very friendly and helpful. Restrooms are a bit rustic, but quite clean. Wi-Fi is currently available only at the office but they expect to have it at the sites later this season. Sites could be more level than they are, but getting the rig leveled was not a problem. Fresh lobsters are available from the owner who picks them up at the boat. The campground is about 20km from the closest town of any size, which is Montague, where you'll find two supermarkets and other services. All in all, this was a very nice and relaxing place to stay on this wonderful island.
As previous reviewers reported, this is a gem of a little campground. The total number of sites listed (26) is made up mostly of cottages and tent sites. I counted only about a half-dozen RV sites. Although the facility is right in town, it is surprisingly quiet. It sits on a ridge overlooking the town marina, and is convenient to shopping and the local sights. The only negative occurred when checking in. I pulled into the driveway which provides access to the cottages, motel, and RV sites, but getting to the RV sites required driving through a very narrow parking area in front of the motel. Barely enough room to squeeze through. Also, the 2012 season may be the last for this campground. The owner is planning to break ground for a hotel on the property in September, and that will mean closing the campground to make room for a parking lot.
Our daily rate reflects our early season stay at Marco Polo Land. The posted summer rate is #41.90. This is a large, well-kept campground which includes a restaurant, an inn, a decent camp store and numerous play areas and family activities. There are both open sites on grassy areas resembling a golf course, and wooded areas as well. Our open campsite was exactly level, and wide and deep enough to easily back into. Even though it has rained for our entire stay, the site never got muddy. Marco Polo is about a mile from the Green Gables House of the 1908 novel, and just a bit farther from the beach. There is an adequate number of bath houses scattered throughout the park. The only negative is the lack of cable TV and only a handful of channels accessible by antenna.
This is a nice, well-maintained campground convenient to Moncton's attractions. Sites are mostly grass, reasonably wide,and reasonably level. The connections for water and power are located at the back, between every two sites which means your connections may be on the off side of your rig. This wasn't a problem for us because our connections are at the rear, but I could see it as a potential problem if your connections are in the center of your rig and your podium is on the other side. The sewer connections are located where you would expect to find them.The restrooms are spotless, and the shower stalls are surprisingly spacious, but there is only one bathhouse, and when the campground gets full, you may have to wait.
This is a terrific campground bordered on two sides by Passamaquoddy Bay which is part of the Bay of Fundy. The level sites are gravel, and it appears that lots of new gravel has recently been added. The bath house is modern and spotless. There is no cable TV, but we received 9 stations (including digital) on our rig's antenna. The Wi-Fi is among the best campground Wi-Fi we've experienced anywhere. The only negative is that the sewer connections are close to the neighboring site's picnic table which wasn't a problem for us because we were here early in the season and we had no near neighbors.
Mt. Desert Narrows is operated by a group which runs two other campgrounds in the area. I'll give them the benefit of the doubt, since we visited very early in the season, but the grass needed mowing, many of the sites weren't ready, and the lower bath house was boarded up. The waterfront sites do not have sewer connections, and there are a limited number of sites with 50amp power. The sites are grass/dirt/a little gravel, and some appeared to be not very level. Our site, 150, had giant tire ruts, but they were far enough away from where I parked to not cause a problem. The sites are big enough to handle most any size rig. The one open bath house was clean, although the showers were quite rustic. The park is convenient to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park, and guests are provided with a comprehensive packet of local guides, maps, and information.
This was our second visit to Wild Duck and the only reason I rate it 9 and not 10 is that some of the premium back-in spaces are a bit difficult to get into with a 32 ft. 5th wheel. Other than that, the place is great. It is well-maintained, quiet, mainly because kids aren't permitted. It is bordered by a very scenic marsh, and not too far from grocery shopping, restaurants, Cabela's and other facilties. The gravel sites are reasonably level, and raked after every departure.If you use a Magellen/Good Sam GPS, be forwarned, the directions to Wild Duck linked to the Good Sam POIs are very wrong. If you manually enter the address it will get you right there.
We camped here off season, during the week, and the campground was sparsely populated. The staff was friendly and helpful, the gravel/dirt sites seem quite roomy. Some of the features of the place were not open, which made the nightly fee a bit steep. There are quite a few seasonal campers here, and some of the available spaces seemed to be not very level. Our site ran downhill, but leveling our rig wasn't a problem. Oh, don't let the name fool you, there isn't a bay anywhere in view. The location on the western end of Cape Cod is convenient to several of the popular tourist attractions on the cape. Overall, I'd say this is a decent campground, but I don't know how it would be at peak season.
This large campground is adjacent to Knoebels Amusement Park, which is a family-friendly old style amusement park, with no admission charge, and reasonable prices for rides and food. The campground has electric hookups only, but there are several water fill spots at the entrance, and a few dump stations on the property. The campground is wooded, some sites may present leveling issues, and the trees may present issues for larger rigs. There is frequent shuttle service to the amusement park, although it isn't too far to walk. Restrooms are rustic, but adequate. Reservations are a must, especially on weekends. The fee is high, considering minimum hookups, no cable and no antenna access, but how many campgrounds provide a really cool amusement park on the premises?
I guess there is truth to the old adage that you can please some of the people some of the time but not all of the people all of the time. I don't get reviewers complaints about the size of the sites. We have a 32 ft fifth wheel. This was our second time in this KOA. Yes there are trees. Trees make shade, and provide a woodsy atmosphere. Since there are trees you need to be a bit careful driving through, but the sites are certainly bigger than some I've been in. There was also room to park the truck. My only complaint is the nearby RxR and the sound of the trains. This is a lovely, well-run KOA, with sparkling clean restrooms, and helpful, friendly management. Yes, there are lots of KOA's with no trees at all. Given a choice, I'll always go for the trees.
This is a funky little campground set well off the road on a family farm. The pull through sites look like back in sites at first glance, but the idea is to pull in and face a large lawn area which is used to pull out. Staff is very friendly, the park is quiet, with a fair proportion of seasonal campers. There is a swimming/fishing pond, table and fire ring at each site, and decent room between sites. Wi-Fi works well, but there is a $2 daily fee for Wi-Fi. The park is close enough to Chicago for antenna TV reception. Some of the overnight sites may require a bit of work to level your rig, but I've seen worse. We would stay here again.
I'm not a big fan of the Corps of Engineers, but this park is something they've done right. Spacious, level, concrete pads, paved interior roads, lots of space between sites, and enough trees for shade but not so many they get in the way. Electrical service only, but water faucets are scattered throughout. There's an easily accessible dump station. Good antenna TV reception from Des Moines. The rate we paid was due to the Senior Pass.
We were originally planning to make this an overnight stop but extended two nights. Park is in the middle of a cornfield, but I didn't look to see if there was a baseball field built on the other side. Some sites are narrow, but I've seen worse. Our site was perfectly level. Although close to I-80, the corn seems to dampen the highway noise, at least this time of year. Nice pool and spa. Wi-Fi didn't work at all for a couple of days, but it started working on our third day. No services nearby, but virtually no traffic to get to them about 10 miles away. Some interesting historical sites in the area, but a bit of a drive to see them. Office makes hot pizza every day($$) and delivers to your site. We would stay here again.
Although close to I-80 there wasn't too much highway noise at night. This park is in the high desert, and looks like it. It's all gravel, but the pull-through spaces are quite long and wide enough for slides. Awnings aren't recommended due to desert winds. This is a good place to use as a base to explore Flaming Gorge, the most scenic parts of which are 45 miles south on the Utah side of the border. The wild horse self guided tour is near by, and the BLM mustang depot is close as well. This is our second time here, and we would return if in the area.
This is the second time we've stayed at Flagg Ranch and it hasn't changed at all in 3 years. This is a very rustic campground in the national forest between Grand Teton National Park and Yellowstone NP. It is exactly 60 miles north of Jackson, WY. The campground is heavily wooded, and wildlife (including bears) sometimes wander through the park. The biggest downside, aside from the exorbitant price, which is typical for the area, is the 20amp electrical service. It fluctuates between 108 and 118 volts. If you are prepared for the cost and the iffy power, it's a decent place to stay while exploring the two wonderful national parks.
This is a very pleasant and quiet campground with reasonably level shaded sites. Staff provides free coffee in the store, and $2.50 pancake breakfast every morning. There's a pool and spa, and a playground. Park is a short drive to all services and stores, but being in an industrial area, there is some traffic noise, but it isn't a problem. Wi-Fi is free and good. No cable TV but good reception on the antenna (digital). We would definitely stay here again.
This is a small, in-town campground, not quite up to KOA standards, but not bad. It has 4 individual, coed, full bath restrooms, which were clean, the staff is friendly and helpful. The sites are a bit close together, but we've seen worse. Deer Lodge has a lot to offer for a very small town. The Grant-Kohrs Ranch National Historic Site is worth visiting, as is the Old Montana State Prison and attached museums. We would camp here again.
The only negative about this park is the narrow sites. All sites are paved with nice patios, but they are too narrow for both slides and awnings on large rigs. Nicely landscaped, nice indoor pool, very good Wi-Fi and cable. Clean modern restrooms and showers. The park is convenient to Coer d'Alene, ID as well as Spokane. Good shopping nearby. If you are here during the summer, be sure to get to Green Bluff Road for the cherry farms, especially if you like Rainier Cherries.
This is a very nice RV park offering a host of water activities on Moses Lake. The park appears to be divided into two sections. The newer section offers wide paved roadways and paved pads with grass in between. The sites are a bit close together, but not as close as in some other parks. This section is open with no shade trees. The older section, which is closer to the lake, is largely gravel with many large shade trees. The park is quite close to I-90 and there is some noise from the highway, but we didn't find it disturbing. There is a fee for Wi-Fi, which worked well, and the cable TV was fine.
Alder Lake Park is on a beautiful lake in a densely wooded area of Washington. All sorts of water sports are available, and the park is an easy drive to Mt. Rainier National Park. Mt. Rainier itself is visible (on clear days) over the lake from the marina area. The campground is well-maintained, with tables and fire rings at each site, but has limitations for larger RVs. The pull-through sites are the crescent type, and some are shorter than others, and some have large trees making maneuvering large rigs problematic. Also, many of the pull-through sites as well as back-ins are not level. It took us almost an hour to get our 32ft. Fifth wheel into position so it could be leveled with the many blocks and ramps I carry. I saw several class C motorhomes sitting with their front wheels up on piles a boards to get level. This park is a very popular weekend getaway, so reservations are a must on weekends. There is a very good online reservation service available.
This is a decent urban park, meaning the spaces and roadways are quite tight. The facilities and restrooms are spotlessly clean, the roadways are paved and the sites are concrete. Since the park is on a hill, some of the sites, particularly those at the bottom, are not level. To help compensate, the park recently provided wooden leveling ramps to run up on the low side to help level rigs. These are helpful, but not perfect. The park is surprisingly quiet for an urban park. The sites are quite narrow. We were able to park our tow vehicle next to the fifth wheel, but the passenger side door couldn't be opened. There are no picnic tables and no fire rings. The park is convenient to shopping and the Boeing Future of Flight Tour, and the staff is helpful and friendly.
This is a very nice RV park. Internal roadways are paved, sites are level gravel and quite roomy. The multiple restrooms are modern and spotless. Wi-Fi worked for my laptop at our site with no problem, but my wife needed to take hers to a hot spot. The beach is distant and on a bay, but access may be muddy if it's rained recently. The location is convenient to the ferries and Victoria. This is an expensive park, but this is Vancouver Island which is not known as the bargain capital of Canada. (Getting your rig out here on the ferry will cost upwards of $150.) We would definitely stay here again.
I noticed some negative reviews of the park from last year and earlier. Whatever the issues were, they have apparently been resolved. The entrance to this park is beautifully landscaped and laden with colorful flowers. The roomy sites afford good privacy. The cable TV provides more than 100 US and Canadian channels. The bathrooms and showers are modern and spotless, but there is a small fee for showers. Wi-Fi works close to the office. All in all, a very good RV park.
This is a decent older campground next door to a wildlife park. We were here just one night and didn't unhitch, but the site was level and long enough for the tow vehicle and 5'er. Some trees need to be trimmed where they hang a bit low over the roadways. Terrific cable TV and decent Wi-Fi. We were in a site closest to the highway, so traffic noise was noticable. We would stay here again.
This is a very nice modern RV park with sparkling clean restrooms and showers, and friendly and attentive staff. It is located in the foothills of the Canadian Rockies, just outside Jasper National Park. We saw 4 elk along the road approaching the campground. The only negatives I can report is that our gravel site (#22) was uneven, so we had difficulty leveling. Most other sites seemed to be more level. Also, the Wi-Fi is quite iffy, especially when the park is full. The town of Hinton, complete with a Safeway and WalMart, is just a few minutes west. We would definitely stay here again. One word of caution -- make reservations. The campground was full every night we were there.
We found this to be an adequate RV park for a short stay. There are no restrooms or showers, in fact, there are no buildings at all. There are two Porta Potties, but I don't consider them restrooms. The Canadian Pacific runs right next to the park, but if you consider the sound of trains at night to be romantic, this won't be a problem. There are picnic tables at some sites, but only one "community fire ring". Other than the golf course next door, the park offers few ameneties.
This is a very nice campground convenient to everything in Moose Jaw. Some sites are quite close together. There's room for the slides, but just barely. WiFi is best closest to the office. We were about as far away as possible, and WiFi service was intermittent. The washrooms are near the office, and as mentioned by another reviewer, there are no pathways through the rows of campsites, so if the park is full and you are in the last row, you will either walk through someone's site or all the way around the end to get to the washroom. We would stay here again if we are in the area.
This may have been a very nice campground at one time and may be again, but right now, its a mess. Recent floods in southern Saskatchewan has resulted in about half the campground being flooded and currently closed. Several of the washrooms are closed, and the interior roads have major potholes and mud. The voltage on the 30 amp service was so sporadic, it ranged from 100 to 120 volts on my voltmeter. This resulted in damage to the air conditioner circuit breaker which I needed to have replaced at a cost of $100 at our next stop. The campground has a nice swimming pond, and if the management can repair the flood damage and the roads, it could once again be a very nice park.
This park has apparently added a new section since the previous reviewer called it a gravel parking lot with small trees. The new section is a gravel parking lot with no trees. The spaces are rather narrow and close together, but when we were there the owners took care to provide separation between rigs. The Wi-Fi worked fine, but the $3 daily fee is a bit steep. The place is very clean and well-maintained, the staff very friendly and helpful. The sewer hookup is a bit high and makes for difficult draining from the waste tanks on some rigs, mine included. The park is located in Manitoba farmland, a short drive from the attractions in Winnipeg. As long as it isn't too crowded, Arrowhead is a fine spot as a base of operations for visits to the city. FYI, a new campground at a nearby provincial park was reported on TV to be opening in mid July, 2011, and it might be worth checking out if you are in the area.
This new campground continues to be a work in progress. It consists of about 1/2 wooded sites and about 1/2 in an open area. A Wi-Fi hot spot has been added near the office, and may be accessible from the lower sites. The staff is hard at work adding new sites and improving the facilities. Restrooms are adequate and the setting is rustic. We spent 4 nights here and during two days the electric power failed several times briefly, but this issue was apparently resolved. Sites seemed reasonably level. We would definitely stay here again. Staff was very helpful and friendly.
Happyland is located about 10 miles west of Thunder Bay on the trans Canada Highway. Sites are level, and most are heavily wooded, providing good privacy. Some may be a bit narrow for both slides and awnings. There is a rail line fairly close to the park, but I was awakened only once by a train during our 3 night stay. There are a fair number of seasonal guests here, but most seem to be in a separate "residential" area. This is a very nice park and I would definitely stay here again. Just a couple of minutes west of the park is Kakabeka Falls which is the second biggest in Ontario (Niagara is #1).
This is a very nice wooded campground a few minutes north of town. Grass sites appear to be level, at least ours was. No cable TV but some US and Canadian stations come in on the antenna. The road noise reported in other reviews is not really bad, and is to be expected at any campground along the Trans Canada Highway. The only negative I found was that some of the sewer connections are raised too high to afford complete tank drainage. I needed to lift the hose to empty it. This was not a major problem since there is a conveniently located dump station to completely empty the tanks when exiting the campground.
I agree with previous reviews. This is a decent older campground along side the Trans Canada Highway. Our grass site was level and roomy, the rest rooms are spotless. The staff is friendly and helpful and there is a "chip truck" on site serving fries and other food. The noise from the highway is a presence, but not terrible. We stayed here for one night en route west. And the Wi-Fi worked well. If you like to watch TV in your rig, you'll need a sat dish. There's no cable TV and no on air reception.
This campground is in a beautiful lake front setting. There are quite a few seasonal campers here, and the sites for transients were a bit problematic. Our site had a big hump in the middle of it and a very branching tree on one side, making maneuvering into a level spot problematic. Staff was very helpful in that they willingly trimmed some branches for us. Other daily sites seemed a bit narrow, and as I write this, a motorhome managed to squeeze in next to us. There aren't a lot of quality campgrounds in this area of the Trans Canada Highway. This one is quite adequate for one night, or even longer if you enjoy boating and fishing.
Fundy National Park has several campgrounds. We stayed in the Headquarters Campground next to the visitor's center and the town of Alma, which is right on the bay of Fundy. This is one of the best National Park campgrounds we've stayed in, both in the US and Canada. We had full hook-ups with excellent Wi-Fi, a first in our national park experience. The only road into Fundy is Hwy 114, which is in very rough shape. Both our sofa and TV set were sideways when we got here, and opening the cabinets was a bit of a challenge. We were here in Spring, and as apparently typical for New Brunswick, the most plentiful wildlife in the park is the black fly, so be sure to have plenty of bug spray with you. We would definitely stay here again.
This is a very nice little campground. All sites are on the bay, and all sites are grass. The only downside is that the sites are a bit close together...so close that the hook up podium is right next to the next site's picnic table. The host does alternate sites when possible, but when the place is full, expect to be really close to your neighbor. The wi-fi was weak, but adequate. The restrooms were very clean, and the staff very helpful and friendly. We would definitely camp there again.
Very friendly and helpful staff and nice campground. We were in an unpaved site which was reasonably level, but the recently refurbished gravel parking area was a bit narrow and too close to the connection podium for easy extension of the slides. The concrete pads on paved sites looked fine. Wi-Fi was quite good as was the cable TV. On the downside, and this may have been because it is very early in the season here, there was no brochure listing cable channels or local services as is often provided by quality campgrounds. Our $40 rate was the early-season rate for an unpaved full-hookup site.
I concur with the positive reviews of this site. The only reason I didn't rate it a 10 is because the spotlessly clean restrooms are a bit compact for the number of RVs in the park at peak season and because the park charges $1. per day per computer for WiFi, which worked reasonably well. This adults only park is very quiet, very clean and well maintained. It is close to Portland, Freeport (LL Bean) and other area attractions. We would definitely come here again.
The restrooms and showers here are very nice and well-maintained. There is a $2 daily fee for WiFi, which is discounted for monthly guests. The WiFi was fast with a strong connection. The sites are very wide with room for a tent or shelter as well as a tow vehicle and RV. Cable TV connection is very good. The only down side has to do with the unpaved interior roads which are quite hilly, rutted, and bumpy. This is not an RV resort but it is a quiet, rustic campground in the woods with mainy seasonal guests who take pride in their sites with gardens and various types of shelters.
I agree with the positive reviews of this park. It is a well-run, clean and pretty little park with 37 level gravel sites and a wide paved road. We've been here twice and would certainly stay here again. Wi-Fi works fine, cable TV is okay with a limited number of channels. Supermarkets and Wal-Mart are a few miles away. Great bird watching and fishing from their own dock, and access to open water from their boat ramp on Indian Bayou. Avalon Blvd. is a free section of a toll road to the beach, and traffic noise is minimal even though the park is close to the road.
This is a new park, opened in 2009. Gravel sites are big enough to keep our fifth wheel hitched for our one night stay, but you will have to do some leveling. Park is located on a hilltop on the edge of town with great views of the desert and great sunsets. Owners and staff are friendly and helpful. The bathroom facilities are clean, but quite limited--a single full bath for men, and a single full bath for women. If you really gotta go, and someone's taking a shower, you'll have to wait. No cable TV but the park is in a great spot for satellite reception and the regular antenna picks up a few stations. Walmart, grocery shopping and restaurants are near by.
This is a well cared-for RV Park with all of the amenities you could ask for. One surprising bonus was the many citrus trees throughout thr park, which provided us with fresh oranges for breakfast. I assume this bonus is seasonal. The site was big enough to not feel cramped, and had adequate room for the tow vehicle. The park has a decent restaurant on-site, good laundry and bath house facilities. Other reviewers commenting on airplane and railroad noise must have very acute hearing. The trains and planes were barely noticeable. The adjacent, co-owned Beaudry RV Center is the largest RV service facility in Arizona. We were able to have technicians come to our site to evaluate our needed repairs, and didn't bring the rig into the service center until the work was ready to be done. This was clearly one of the best RV Resorts we've utilized and will definitely return.
This is an extremely well run RV park. We were there during Thanksgiving and the park put on a Thanksgiving dinner for campers who had no where else to go. The park provided the turkeys (free of charge) and guests brought side dishes. The lake is clean and usable, there's a cafe on site serving decent, reasonably priced meals, and both the Wi-Fi and cable TV worked fine. One quirk was that the gate is locked a midnight, so if you know you'll be out late you need to request a key card to get back in to the park. Overall, we enjoyed our stay there and would definitely return.
Although this campground is located at the Lajitas Resort and Spa, it is named Maverick Ranch RV Park. If you like the desert, this is the place for you. It is located between Big Bend National Park and a huge Texas state park, and it is by far the best private campground in the region. The area is about as isolated as you can get--the closest Wal-Mart, we were told, is 100 miles away. The facilities are terrific, including one of the nicest bath houses we've seen. The resort has a decent restaurant, and there are a handful of other restaurants within several miles. Groceries, propane, gas/diesel are about 10 miles away, although the resort does have a small store. On the downside, the Wi-Fi is very slow, and many sites don't have a TV hookup, which we were told by the host was iffy at best. The resort has a golf course, an equestrian center, and all sorts of outdoor activities are available on site or nearby. The rates were also quite reasonable. We found our stay there very relaxing and we would definitely stay here again.
