This is one great campground...for families and 'empty-nesters' as well. There are planned activities, level (wheel-chair accessible) sites, well-maintained restrooms, showers and laundry, pull-throughs, and cabin accommodations. This is a popular campground any time of the year, particularly for Halloween when campers and RVers go all out decorating for the holiday. There are also some great, small community festivals in the area throughout the Fall. Staff is very friendly and helpful; there is Bingo on Friday nights and live music groups on Saturday evening. The only drawback is the distance to town (Aberdeen) if you need supplies that may not be carried by the camp store. Memberships are available to the public but no 'permanent' set ups are allowed. Flies and gnats can be bothersome at certain times of the year so having a screen-room for day-time use is helpful. We will return.

For a 'late in the season' stay, Camp Hatteras was an excellent choice; however, we can't imagine what it must be like here in summer, even if you have shade covers for your RV. There are few trees but definitely an ocean breeze although you have to climb a dune to see the water. Our site held all the amenities promised and the restrooms, showers, and RV sites were definitely handicapped accessible, even for wheelchairs. We were disappointed there was no handicap accessibility to the campground's share of the beach; however. Those in wheelchairs will have to go to the Rodanthe Pier to fish unless you have an ATV. Still, Camp Hatteras is a great location to be able to visit other historical sites on OBX.

We stayed at the Williamsburg KOA Colonial and had a great experience. Staff was extremely friendly and accommodating, even though we arrived after 8 PM, leading us to our site and assisting with hook-up. The campground was very neat and clean, as was the laundry, and well-maintained. Although we were only minutes from the interstate the campground was exceptionally quiet. Getting to historical Williamsburg was a breeze. We are already making plans to return to this campground again next year when we can stay longer in the area.

We over-nighted here for one night only on our way to Massachusetts. The campground met our needs for that although the 'handicapped' bathrooms weren't really. Apparently this campground has changed hands recently and has potential to be a very good one but folks who've used it as a 'base' for many years expressed that the campground needs some stability. Our site was a pull-through long enough to leave our tow vehicle attached for the night. We only hooked up the power although all amenities were available. We are unsure if we would return to this particular campground on our next Vermont venture.

This is a very nice Good Sam campground with a lot of potential; it must be a great place to be in summer with its lake and activities. We were very explicit when making reservations that we needed a space for 34' with 2 slides and handicapped accessible. Upon arrival we were originally sent to a narrow space between 2 trees, with 'permanents' on both sides of us and directly across from the kids playground. If we'd had young kids with us this might have been a good place to be; however, our rig would not fit in the space so we unhooked our tow vehicle and searched the park for a suitable space. It seems most of the lake-front spaces are already taken by permanent campers or are for tents. We finally set up in the open field. All the amenities were available as stated; staff was friendly and accommodating. A GREAT nearly restaurant for low-cost lobster dinners is Ocean Gardens in Gorham, about 15 minutes away. Restrooms and showers were not wheel-chair accessible. Although campground met our needs for a 3-4 night stay but it unlikely we would return here.

This is a small, family-owned campground in the Berkshires. It is very neat and clean and the owners are very accommodating and friendly; their grandson (13) earns his keep by running the honey wagon ($12) and is a hard worker. The site we had was more than large enough to accommodate our 34' MH and very handicap accessible. While there appear to be many 'seasonal' and some 'permanent' residents, the sites are well maintained. The only distraction at the time we were there was the railroad construction that was occurring on the main road needed to get to the campground...a little tight for a 34' MH, but that should be cleared up by next season, and we were able to find an alternate route to and from the campground.

We stayed here for several days and does this place have its act together! From the moment we arrived we were treated as if we were the only folks who mattered. We were directed to our camp site and had help setting up (appreciated due to disability). It is only 4 miles from Patriots stadium! Actually this is a great 'jumping off point' for the Cape, Boston, etc. During summer months they operate a shuttle to town and the rail into Boston. Lots of activities for everyone. Enough space between sites you feel as if you are really camping. Handicap facilities are excellent and very clean. We left on the day of the 1st Patriots home game when the main road is closed for only incoming traffic. Campground staff gave us printed instructions on how to get to I495 towards Boston that avoided all the game traffic and were extremely helpful; can't say enough about the staff and this campground. We will definitely stay here again.

A small family-owned and well-kept campground. Staff were very accommodating and helpful. Pull-through sites are definitely handicap-friendly; however, bathrooms, while neat and clean, are not wheelchair friendly. Owner gave a rate discount due to spouse's disabled veteran status. Sites are right on the river and beautiful. We would definitely return to this campground.

Avoid this campground if you can help it! While the 'front end' is inviting, where you 'really' camp is surrounded by 'permanents' and spaces are so small and unlevel you will have difficulty getting set up if you are in anything other than a tent. We were left to 'choose our own site' which didn't help at all after dark! We found a spot to 'stop for the night' then moved to something else in the daylight. WI-FI was poor and is not free; rain didn't help b/c site didn't drain well; handicapped accessible??? don't count on it. We would not use this campground again.

Northshore uses a railroad-theme in its campground;"cute idea." They have 2 pools, lake access and both family and adult activities, mostly on weekends. The park seemed 'old', not all roads/site were paved. The main road is a steep hill to navigate and could be difficult for the disabled. People were friendly, but this park seems to cater to more 'permanent' RVers because many of the sites were occupied with long-term setups and there are no lakefront sites available due to permanent homes. Park needs some work and updating before we'd return; they'll be happy to 'sell' you a spot.

This is a wonderful campground with 2 pools, a fishing pond and a super friendly staff! All sites have concrete pads, picnic tables and fire ring. It is clean and well-maintained, and the closest park to entrance to Dollywood (you can even hear the steam train whistle!). We have now visited this campground x2 and will certainly make it our park of choice at Pigeon Forge.
