This is a relatively new park; the owner is very helpful and friendly. Wifi worked well; they are currently working on installing cable tv to all of the sites. Laundry room is very clean and reasonably priced. The creek runs right next to the campground, they have canoes and kayaks available, and it is the most beautiful creek and swamp to go through! The downside: some of the sites and roads are a little tight. We have a long bed truck and a 35' trailer and we had to be very careful. We would go back again.

Price reflects cost of a waterfront site; otherwise it would have been $49. We stayed here for a week. This is a very nice park, well run, very neatly kept, friendly staff and residents. Hilton Head is of course a great place to visit. Virtually all of the sites looked nice and well spaced. All are paved, the Wi-Fi worked very well, as did the cable TV. The laundry facilities are clean and reasonably priced. We would definitely stay here again.

Price reflects a Good Sam discount. We stopped here for two days on our way south. Very nice people in the office. This campground is great for a quick stop as it is close to the highway, the roads are flat and easy to get around and most of the sites are pull-throughs. The manager leads you to your site. The laundry room is clean and reasonably priced. Sites are flat with some shade trees. We probably wouldn't stay for a long period, but would come here again for a quick stop.

This is truly a unique place to stay. It is way off the beaten path, so plan on spending at least several days here. The owners welcome you to their home and treat you like you are their guest. Internet signal is very strong, laundry is complimentary, breakfast is awesome and so are the views! They have very few sites but all are full hookup with concrete pads. Franklin is a good sized town that is about ten minutes away, and there are forests and hiking trails that the owners will guide you to. We will definitely be back.

The Internet access was excellent in the back of the park, but in our opinion the nicer sites are more in the middle, with more shade, grass and privacy. We were assured that those sites should have good Wi-Fi strength, also. Cable TV was a plus. The laundry room is very clean and reasonably priced. The dog park was a big hit with our cat! The owners are very amenable and friendly. The park backs up to the Blue Ridge Parkway with access to hiking trails, etc. We will be back!

This park is a definite ten! The owners are hard working, gracious and keep their park in mint condition. The sites are very nicely spaced, some are shaded, the views are magnificent, and many of the sites are drive-throughs. The price is a little higher than most, but it is well worth it. Our only very minor complaint would be that the Wi-Fi signal was weak and slow at our site, but our Verizon gave us our internet access. The town of Luray is close by; so are major interstate roads for access. We will definitely be back.

We only stayed at this park for two nights; we'll be back when the weather is warmer! It is a very pretty park, although it is remote. Our biggest complaint is that they charge extra for certain things that we would rather have included in the base price. The WiFi worked well, and the owners and other campers were friendly and helpful. Not all of the sites would accommodate our 35' trailer, but they have sites on the water or in the woods that would work.

We were here for two weeks; the price reflects that. This is a nice park, and seems to be the best one close to Rochester, where we have family. Cable TV hookups are only at some of the sites; they are planning to put it throughout the park. There is a Camping World close by. There are quite a few seasonals and the park was full on weekends with large groups. The WiFi worked well at one site, but not so great at another after we moved. However we did have Verizon access for internet. Some of the sites are too close together for us. The price is right: great value! We will be back.

This is a beautiful campground, with lots of wooded areas and large, level, very well spaced sites. We were here for a week. Only some of the sites offer WiFi (at $2 per day) and one of their repeaters was down when we were here. We were very lucky to pick up a neighbor's WiFi; otherwise we would have been unhappy this week. The Verizon signal was non-existent. Only some of the sites have cable TV, and we found it to be the best quality and selection that we have experienced in the last 4 months of camping. The laundry room is very nice; however only 4 of their 7 machines were working, and the change machine was not. I tried contacting the office to get change but in their off season (September) they don't have coverage in the office and didn't answer their 2 phone numbers, so I wasn't able to finish my laundry. The other campers, both seasonal and overnight, all seemed very friendly. We would come back only if we could be assured of getting WiFi.

We stayed here for a week. The property this park has is very very nice, but it is in need of maintenance, possibly due to financial issues of the county? The staff of four people in the front office that greeted us on arrival, were more interested in their conversation than servicing us. The outlet at our electric hookup was upside down, so we couldn't use our surge protector. The trash dumpster was convenient but very messy, again, the staff needs to clean up after it, also get a replacement dumpster that isn't falling apart. The location to the train station for getting into NYC is very good, about a mile away. The sites are well spaced. There are great hiking trails and bike trails in the area.

The people at the front desk are friendly and nice, the location of the park is very good, especially with the Cape Cod Rail Trail (for bikes) located right at the back of the park. The sites were level, but our site wasn't very shady, and it is all sand, so it's messy. The park seems too focused on making extra money; i.e. to do a load of wash is $3, the most expensive we've seen by far. You have to give them a $20 deposit for a front gate security card. Our daughter came to visit for two days and we had to pay $10 per day for her plus $5 per day for her car! Their Wi-Fi was unreliable (and we were close to the front) and they had no pool. We would not come here again.

We were here for a week; price reflects that. The campground seems to be well run, people at the front desk are nice. We were here to visit our daughter in Boston. Laundry room was very nice. The sites were in the trees, which we liked. It was full and fairly crowded, but still okay. A little annoying that we had to pay for our daughter and her boyfriend to come for dinner one night. Wi-fi was good.

This is a very neat, well run park. Paved sites everywhere. But for $60/night it would be nice to have cable and sewer, not have to choose between the two. The sites are really too close together for us. Laundry was very nice, but no pool.

We were here for a week and it was great. We will definitely be back. We had site #4, which is one of several that have little roofs built over the picnic tables. The sites are so well spaced, and extra vegetation makes for lots of privacy. The hosts are very friendly, with advice on what's going on in the surrounding area.

We camped here for four nights. The owners and many of the other campers were extremely friendly. Bathrooms, showers and laundry are very clean. The campsites are right on the water with great views, if only you could see them past the other campers' rigs. The sites are very close together, not big enough for an RV with slides. We had to pull in our awning so as not to hit the slide of the motorhome next to us. No sewer hookups, but a honeywagon service is available. Internet was good, no cable at all sites. We would never stay here for more than a couple of days.

Nightly rate includes tax. We stayed here for 3 days. This is a beautiful property and the owners are working hard on it; however, it still needs improvement. The office has free Wi-Fi, but it requires that you to sit outside their office to use it. We are full-timers, so the internet is important to us. The young lady who checked us in was not knowledgeable or forthcoming about different sites. We had no choice in the matter. A man had us follow him to our site (#1) and got us in there easily. But it was next to the bar area, which at least wasn't open while we were there. Lots of noise from the ferry at this site. We had no one in the site next to us, thank goodness, because it would have been ridiculously close. Taking the ferry back and forth was no big deal. Close enough to tour Saint John and St. Andrews.

We stayed here for a week. Rate includes taxes and is for 6 nights/get one free deal. We were given site #44 in the older section of the park, which we thought was good in that we had no neighbors on one side and had a view of the woods and lake (through the trees). Although we had a good site, we thought most of the other sites were too close together. The sewer hookups were not capped and gave off odors when neighbors were dumping. Internet was iffy, requiring us to go outside for a good signal. Lots of flies around due to a lack of cleanliness by the trash cans. The park in general did not seem to be well maintained. The hiking trail around the lake was overgrown and fell off to one side, not a fun walk at all. It was convenient to see Hopewell Rocks and Fundy National Park. We would recommend this place for only a couple of days stay.

Price quoted includes KOA discounts and taxes. We stayed here for a week. The hosts lead all campers to their sites upon arrival. Since we were staying a week, we were given a site with a tree, much appreciated. We were fairly close to the office and had a strong internet signal. There is a nice view of the Bras d'or Lakes and Seal Island, very pretty. Convenient to Cabot Trail and Baddeck. This park seems to thrive on campers coming and going to the Newfoundland Ferry in New Sydney, so the turnover at the park is constant. They have a little beach on the water for swimming. We would come here again.

This is a beautiful place to stay; we were here for a week. The owners are especially gracious, and actually seem to care if you are enjoying your stay. The grounds are well landscaped and immaculate. The location is central on the island for sightseeing. Wi-Fi is adequate, laundry room is spotless, most sites are well spaced, very shaded and private.

We camped here for one week in site #104. It was NOT the best site in terms of privacy or shade. If we came here again, we would try to pick a better site; however, it is difficult to have a conversation with the staff as they do not speak English. There are more sites with sewer hookup than are indicated on the campsite map. Some of the sewer sites are beautiful, offering water views, treed areas and privacy. The park is nicely landscaped, has a big pool and water access. The laundry is very clean and economical. The staff is very responsive; they replaced a faulty electric breaker right away. The Wi-Fi is adequate, but not a very fast or strong signal. There is a nearby regional park with hiking trails and biking. The town of Amqui is nearby and has a good grocery store. We would come here again, but only if we could pick a good site.

We were here for a week, stretching across two, 3 day holiday weekends. We were the only English speaking people in the whole park. Our site was partially shaded and the spacing was adequate around our site. Even though the park was full on the weekends, it was not overly noisy. The hostess at the front desk did speak English, and was very helpful with suggestions on visiting the city of Quebec about 50 minutes away (take the ferry across at Levis). The lake wasn't too appealing, and we were told not to use our kayaks so as not to spread algae from lake to lake. WiFi was available for a price ($15 for 2 weeks) and the signal strength was adequate, but only for one computer at a time. There was no cable TV, and our antenna only picked up one French-speaking channel. The pool is heated and looked good; unfortunately the weather was rainy and cold when we were here. The laundry room looks brand new and is immaculate. If we were to revisit this area, we would probably try another campground.

Rate posted was based on one night free with 6 nights paid. Our site (#82) was in the back by the Grass River, very nice with a view, lots of trees, nicely spaced sites. We would not have liked the sites out in front of the park. Our site was fairly level, tv cable signal good, electric power good. The WiFi only works at the office area; it would be nice if they had a resident's lounge in which to sit. The laundry was very nice and clean. Our Verizon signal was so-so, and our hotspot seemed to work best in the morning! Overall a nice park; we would come here again.

We camped here for almost two weeks when it rained almost every day. Many of the sites were very wet, and not level. The park is close to Lake Ontario, so we had virtually no phone service (AT&T is supposedly better here) and of course there is no Wi-Fi. We were parked in their over flow site where there were no fire pits. And of course, there is no sewer hookup available so we used our tote to dump. No laundry services. The park itself is beautiful, with lots of hiking trails, and the staff is very helpful. This is a great local weekend spot. We were there only because we have family in the area, so we will be back.

This is a lovely park for total relaxing! Ricketts Glen State Park is nearby for hiking or swimming. The sites are very well spaced with nice views. Lots of open mowed spaces as well as woodsy areas. People here are very friendly and accommodating. Bathrooms, showers and laundry are kept spotless by the owners. The only negative is the iffy Wi-Fi service, which is important given the lack of cell phone service. We would definitely come here again. Price reflects discount for Passport America.

This is a very well maintained park. Lots of trees and open green space. It is truly a family place; even though we were here over the Memorial Day weekend, no one was out of control. Our site was level. Internet signal was great until all the weekend people filled up the park, then after the weekend it became strong again. Price reflects one day free for a week rental. We would have given them a 10 rating except they charged us $4 for checking in less than 2 hours before their official 2:00 check-in time. We thought that was nit-picky, especially since we were here for a week.

Price reflects a 10% Good Sam discount. This is a very pretty park with its trees and creek view. The people are hard working and aim to please. However, the sites are very close together; the neighbors' sewer hookup was only 4' from our front door! We were lucky that in the week we stayed there we had immediate neighbors for only 3 nights. The wi-fi signal was good, the TV signal rather fuzzy, and they needed some trash cans for garbage. We probably would not stay here again.

The people here are great, very friendly and helpful. We thought we had the best site, #29 at the edge of the woods and very private. Our site was level, the services were great, including the internet access. The only negative was that we had no cell phone service on our Verizon phone. We would definitely come back here again.

Given what it is, a municipal park without some services (sewer, wi-fi), it is a beautiful park. We were in a heavily treed area close to the reservoir. It was pristine woods camping at its best! The sites are very well spaced for maximum privacy. It was, however, a challenge to back our trailer in between the trees, but once we got there, we loved it. Our site was fairly level. There is a bike path attached to the park that was great for touring the woods, even went to G. Washington's headquarters site! We would definitely return.
