Good state campground fairly near I-90 and Buffalo. Lots of weekenders with their kids and dogs. There are 3 camping loops: 50 amp, 30 amp, and tents. No water or sewer at sites, electric only. There are sewer dump stations available. Location on Lake Erie is exceptional. Park staff is very helpful and nice. Only complaint is too many poorly behaved and unsupervised kids and dogs.

This is a very nice small KOA. It is well-organized and the staff is helpful. There are flowers in small pots at each site, they pick up the trash, and the hook-ups all work fine. Even the water pressure is good. There is a small but clean dog run (fenced), a pool, and a playground. There are a lot of trees and the overall feeling is peaceful and well-maintained. The only thing to complain about is the road noise from I-40, which is white noise but definitely there. A very pleasant overnight stop.

This campground is on a nice piece of property. The maintenance is poor. You are allowed to choose your own site from those available (many or most are taken by seasonal trailers) and we did, only to find that the first 2 that we chose had defective electrical connections. Worse, when we tried to call the 24-hour help line, no one answered after several frantic calls. In fact no one ever called us back. There are a lot of weeds here and there and I wouldn't be eager to jump into the small indoor pool. The walking trails through the 3 loops and the woods are pleasant and there is a pond with geese. The bathrooms and showers are old but clean.

This is not an RV park in the normal sense. It is a group of hook-ups that some guy has installed just off the main road through Oxford, MS. He mostly caters to people in town for football games, graduation, etc. There are no amenities other than hook-ups. Traffic noise is constant. Location is very convenient to most of Oxford and the closest "real" RV parks are the scenic Corps of Engineers parks on lakes miles away. There is usually a 3 night minimum but we managed to get a negotiated one-night rate of $75 which is clearly ridiculous (but we paid it). I think the guy charges whatever he can get. The hook-ups work just fine.

This is a beautiful piece of real estate. As an RV campground, it is very basic. No septic and no 50 amps. There are several camping loops with dirt RV pads arranged in a circle. Many spots have lovely views of the lake (Hartwell). There are lots of mosquitoes, lots of deer and lots of guys drinking beer (there is a no-alcohol rule but no one pays any attention). It is far from the interstate for an overnight stop, but it is very scenic.

This is not a "regular" campground, it is more of a small town made up of permanently installed fifth wheels and trailers. But it is perfectly fine for an overnight stay. It is organized along Lake Gaston, a pretty lake between Virginia and North Carolina, and offers lots of water-based recreation. The hook-ups work well and the concrete pad is level. There are not very many temporary hookups so it might be a good idea to call ahead if you are traveling at a popular time. The people who work here are very nice and busy getting ready for their huge Halloween haunted house and party. No, thanks...

Great park with a lovely campground. This is one of a series of Virginia parks along the Potomac and it has everything: water park, marina, camping, hiking trails, disc golf, etc. Perfect for dog walking. Hook-ups all worked ok, but water pressure was poor even with almost no one in park (October). Lots of deer and squirrels and birds and other wildlife. Wonderful place to stay but here is a warning: plan your route and arrival time carefully. Highway 1 in particular and I-95 in general are horrible. Do not drive through DC in rush hour and try to avoid construction if you can.

We usually don't like KOAs, but this one is unusually nice. It has all the usual kid-friendly KOA amenities: pool, rental bikes and other rental toys, a jumping pillow, big playground, etc. But it is also just a pleasant campground with lots of trees, very well-maintained and well-organized. Because we were here in October the campground was mostly empty and there were deer and birds instead of kids and pets! There is even a nice (small) dog run with mini agility equipment. I'm not sure it would have been as great over July 4th, but it was really pleasant.

Well-run CG very close to Baddeck (Alex Graham Bell museum). Everything works well - hook-ups, Wi-Fi, etc. Very nice and helpful people. Good laundromat. Adequate but not generous spacing for sites. Access to the lake from a small rocky beach. OK for dog walking but not much open space. Just off the main highway, so try to stay further back towards the lake away from the road noise.

This is an AWESOME campground run by Canada's national parks. The hook-ups are good and the sites are level and spread out. Lots of open space and real hikes starting from the CG. No Wi-Fi and no TV reception but great scenery. Convenient to most of the Cabot trail attractions and to the town of Cheticamp. Just a great place to stay and very well-maintained. Great for hikers, cyclists, joggers, and dog walkers. You can reserve specific sites on-line but the reservations system takes a bit of effort.

Pleasant RV park well-located for going to and from Nova Scotia. There are shady sites along a stream, mostly for tents and small trailers. Bigger rigs are arranged around a large field. Good hook-ups. They charge $2 for Wi-Fi which I always think is annoying. There is a large meeting space available for rallies (one for Excel going on while we were there). Laundromat and small dusty store. Nice owners. Fine for a stop-over.

We stayed one night, so can't claim to have really explored this park. Seemed like a typical KOA. Built into the side of a fairly steep hill with mostly pull-through gravel pads. Some sites might be a challenge to get level but most pads were level as long as you stay in the center. Good hook-ups and Wi-Fi. Well-organized office. This CG asked for proof of vaccination on our dogs, which we had only because we had been in Canada - have never been asked at any US park. Lots of trees but not really a beautiful spot. Fine for the night but not much charm.

This campground is a wonderful surprise. It is not a full-service campground; it has hook-ups, bathrooms, showers (we did not use them), a skimpy kids' playground, and that's it. What it does offer is a beautiful view, spacious sites, and a great location. It is right on the water in Indian Harbor, convenient to Peggy's Cove (2 miles), Halifax (30 or 40 minutes) Lunenburg (an hour), etc. It is next door to the famous Ryer's lobster pound, which sells lobsters to eat there (at picnic tables) or take to go. The same family has owned and run the place for 50 years. There are NO seasonals. It is pet-friendly but there is limited real estate to walk your dog. (But your dog could chase a ball or swim - there is plenty of space, just no trails.) Kayaking would be perfect if you have a kayak with you - there is easy access to the water. It is also a great location for cycling along the well-paved and scenic main road. One odd thing: Google puts this campground in the wrong place. It is much further south than shown on Google maps. It is in Indian Harbor. But you won't get lost because there is only one paved route so you'll be on it. The campground owners plan to put up a web site soon so that will show the correct location.

If you have 4 children under the age of 10, this is the perfect campground for you. There are a ton of kids' activities, a great playground, a pool, bikes and other toys kids can use to ride around on, a game room, pancake breakfast, etc. Also the campground is located on a lovely scenic river so kids can play in the river too. If you do not have kids you might not like this campground on a summer weekend - it is packed with families enjoying themselves and the sites are close together. For us, it was not a good fit - too noisy, hard to walk the dogs (both because of lack of real estate and interest from all the kids), no privacy. The campground seems to be well-kept and has the usual amenities. We used the Wi-Fi and it worked fine; we did not use the bathrooms or showers. One last note: this campground also rents RVs, so in addition to all the family activity there is a lot of shuttling of RVs in and out the only road. This is not very tranquil.

I have not stayed in every campground in the world, but The Cove must be one of the most beautiful campground sites extant. It is located on a verdant rolling vista overlooking the Bay of Fundy, where the constant sea breeze and tidal action make every moment feel refreshing. The Cove has some regular amenities: small but nice pool with changing areas, rec room, laundry, bathrooms and showers (did not use), kids' playground. But the main attraction is the location and view. The maintenance is exceptional but the office people are not particularly helpful. There is plenty of gorgeous space to walk your dog. We were here on a picture-perfect summer weekend and the place was only a third full - I think it must be overpriced by Nova Scotia standards. For anyone who appreciates scenery, this is a "10".

This is a very well-organized park on a hill far above the interstate (you can hear it, but it sounds far away). The sites are level and everything is nicely maintained. This is not a truly charming site but it has trees and grass and it is convenient to most things in the Allentown/Bethlehem area. Usual hook-ups and everything works well. Very clean and easy to find/access.

Although this park did not open officially until the weekend, the owners were kind enough to let us stay for one night 2 days early. The Berkshires can be chilly in late April! This is a straightforward campground, lots of grass with the usual hook-ups along a nice stream. There is a lot to see and do nearby. The campground has a good store. The parking spots are on grass so they aren't completely level. There are lots of seasonal trailers and 5th wheels which seem to stay in place, because many of them have porches and other amenities added on. These are neatly kept. The people who run the place are helpful.

This is an excellent park for an overnight stay. It is set on a nice piece of rolling land 5 miles from I-81, adjacent to another major highway. (yes, there is some road noise, but not bad). It is as well-organized as a military operation. There is good signage, helpful kids check you in, and someone drives a golf cart to your site to show you where to go and how to hook up. There is a medium-sized RV store that sells most of the basics. The park is not beautiful, but it is extremely well-maintained and there is a lot of grass (good for dogs) and lovely seasonal flowerbeds. When we were here, it was not crowded, but there were quite a few deluxe RVs stopping for a night or 2. My only complaint about Candy Hill is that the cable is basic and does not work well.

Loved this campground but had a couple of gripes. The bad: we were a day late arriving because we had RV problems and they would not credit us for the lost deposit - this was just ridiculous. So we paid for 3 days instead of the 2 we were there. Also, they are in the process of upgrading some of their facilities. Ffor example, the laundry has 2 ancient washers and one was broken. BUT here are the good things: the park has a lot of charm. There are lots of bushes and trees and the multilevel layout gives each site a private feeling. The nice stream has several hand-made wooden bridges crossing it lined with LED lights. There is a fishing pond. Good areas for dog walking or for kids to run around. Hook-ups are so-so. Water pressure was really poor. This area has a lot to offer and there are many hikes and activities close by. I would stay here again.

This campground has the worst access roads imaginable - narrow, steep, and incredibly rutted. Other than that it is an attractive campground spread out along a stream with the sites located in clusters so it doesn't feel crowded. There are several different levels because of the hilly topography. Usual amenities. The Wi-Fi signal does not work well but that seems to be the norm at campgrounds. Great campground for dogs with ample room for walking, running and playing.

This is our second time staying in this excellent city-owned campground. The worst thing about it is that it is hard to find. It has the usual amenities but is not fancy. The grounds are lovely and there is a huge waterfall and a large creek to admire. There is a fabulous one and a half mile long gravel trail along the creek that begins in the campground and then runs along the creek. The trail is used by walkers, joggers, and bikes. Usual hook-ups, not always in the perfect location but good enough. Lots of trees.

It is hard to imagine a better campground than this one. The staff is large, helpful, and efficient. Everything works, although the Tengo Wi-Fi process is annoying. The campground is lovely, with grassy acreage for kids to play and dogs to walk. (BTW - there are breed restrictions here so inquire before bringing your dog). Awesome saloon at the campground with a full bar, indoor-outdoor seating, and weekend karaoke! Lots of really upscale RVs to inspect. 2 pools, lots of indoor space for events, and a really pathetic workout area. Really an enjoyable place to stay, whether overnight or for a month.

This convenient KOA makes the most of what it can offer. Not much shade - there are few trees in this desolate part of Texas. But there is some grass and the place is immaculately maintained. There is a cute little pond and there are 2 small fenced dog runs. There is a small cafe on site that serves breakfast and dinner (limited menu). Very easy interstate access. Fine for an overnight stay.

This is a very odd campground. For GPS purposes, note that it is in Bosque and not Bernardo. No cable. No grass but they have manged to grow some good-sized trees with drip irrigation. This is a very dusty part of the country. The interstate is very close and might bother some people. There are quite a few full-time residents who seem to be working in the area although it is hard to imagine what they are doing. The wi-fi does not work well. The barking dogs complained about in prior reviews are still barking but you don't have to stay near them. Kiva RV park is ok for a stopover - there are few RV parks in this area and this one is trying to be pleasant despite the dust and noise.

Meteor Crater RV park is owned and managed by the same people who own the meteor crater site down the road. The RV park is a much better deal! (speaking in dollars) The park is immaculate and in addition to being clean there is an unusually high level of security - real fences with gates and a security patrol. It is just off the freeway but not noisy. There are large trees and even some grass for areas like the children's play area. This is a lovely overnight stay in the middle of nowhere. No cable. People who work here are welcoming and helpful.

This campground is incredibly convenient to Zion NP, and to everything else in Springdale. It shares the same awesome views of the surrounding sandstone cliffs as every other location in this area. Other than the above, it is mediocre. The reservations process is terrible and the front desk people can be helpful - or not. The Wi-Fi does not work 75% of the time. The garbage dumpsters are overflowing and sit with no lids right in the middle of the campground. Most of the night lighting does not work. I have never seen a maintenance person maintaining anything in the 4 days we have been here. The sites are close and there are plenty of kids and pets. OTOH the sites are mostly level, the hook-ups work fine, and the campground is amazingly convenient. Oh, I said that. Stay here if you will be spending most of your time in Zion.

Location, location, location - Ruby's is a mile from the entrance to Bryce Canyon N.P., one of the most amazing places in the US. Most of the complaints about Ruby's say how commercial it is and it is very commercial but everything works - good Wi-Fi, new cable in the rear area only, well-maintained. Staff is nice. Probably not as pleasant when it is full, but when it is only half-full Ruby's is fine. Other area campgrounds are both cheaper and prettier but for convenience Ruby's is tops. Car rental right across the street, gas stations, RV/truck wash, grocery.

Nondescript KOA in the middle of nowhere. Perfectly OK for a night. Level gravel sites, good cable and Wi-Fi. Owners are trying to grow grass and trees and place definitely looks better than the competition. Right across the street from the John Wesley Powell river museum, which is worth visiting. Good film and lots of exhibits on the Utah/Colorado river systems.

Loved this park. Only about 10% full on a chilly day in October so if felt like having a huge beautiful park to ourselves. 2 lakes, boating, fishing. Good hiking paths and gravel roads for walks/jogs. Really a special place although I can imagine it might be overrun on a summer weekend. Only a limited number of electric hook-ups so make a reservation. There is a second campground with no hook-ups.

Pretty park along the Animas River about 15 minutes from downtown Durango. The park itself is well-organized but the spaces are close. They get premium rates for the lovely riverfront spots and so they really line up the RVs. Spaces are level on gravel and everything works. They charge $5 extra per dog. The people in the office are nice and able to offer lots of useful information about the area. The park is very clean. All in all, a slightly pricey but truly pleasant place for a stay.

This is a mediocre stop-over at best. The owners are nice people but the place is a big gravel parking lot (yes, it is level) with hook-ups. There are no trees here but there are no trees in most of western Kansas. What there are way too many of is burrs and thorns that will get in your clothes and shoes and the paws of your dogs. I have never been in any campground where my dogs could not take a walk. The Wi-Fi does not work well. Cable works OK and water/sewer/electric are all fine. Some of the people staying here are not people you would want as neighbors, and there is no one policing them or their free-roaming dogs. I would not stay here again.

This is a good campground for an overnight stay. It is only 2 miles from I-70 and easy to find. Don't expect charm - this is a functional place. Very well-kept and clean, with level gravel pads. There is free fishing in the adjacent weedy lake. Several permanent mobile home parks are next door. There are no kids and fewer pets than usual in this park.

One of the nicest campgrounds I have ever stayed in. Clean, attractive (flowers everywhere),well-planned and well-organized. Lots of amenities such as a dog park (with dog agility equipment), cafe with real food plus treats like ice cream, gym (not a very good one), etc. Also many organized activities for families. The negative about this excellent KOA is the location - it is miles from a major highway. It takes a long time to get here and it is hard to find.

This is a gem of a park, located on the Mohawk river. Every camp site is shaded by beautiful old trees. This is not a park with a lot of features like swimming pools or movie night, just a lovely peaceful place to stay. The people camped for the season were mostly retirees with nice rigs and some had even planted flowers. Just a pleasant place for an overnight or a month.

For an overnight stop, this is a perfect little gem. It is very close to the interstate and to Champaign. There is not much to do unless you like to fish, because the whole campground is built around a small pond. Very pretty. No swimming. Lots of big shade trees, immaculately clean, picnic table and fire rings. This would not be a great spot with kids, but for adults who want a quiet pleasant evening with a lovely view in the middle of the corn fields this is the place.

The owner of this park is very nice and helpful and committed to maintaining/improving his campground. We were there for one night on Memorial Day weekend and it was a mob scene, but that's probably true of most RV parks over a holiday weekend. Many, many kids and dogs. But the campground itself is pleasant and has level shady spots with picnic tables. Close to all the Lincoln attractions.

Wanderlust is a special RV park. Very neat and clean, well organized, nice lay-out with small groups so you don't feel as if you are in a huge parking lot. Usual amenities. Lots of shade. Lots to do in the area. Park is on a trolley line so you can easily get into town. The hikes in nearby Hobbs state park are pleasant . The Turpentine Creek animal sanctuary a must-see in the area. This is an excellent stop for a short or long stay.

Very pleasant, convenient RV park, right by I-20. Some traffic noise but not bad. Lots of permanent residents in rear; front is about half transient and half permanent. Two fenced dog yards; pretty good workout room; nice, helpful people. Grounds are well-maintained, and there are picnic tables at each space. They sell some RV supplies and propane. Good stop!

Perfectly fine, pleasant park. Usual amenities. Very nice people guide you to your site. Well-maintained but nothing exciting. Very convenient to I-40.
