Newfound is a great, quiet place to park and explore New Hampshire's White Mountains. The park is flat, well laid out, plenty of room. Most sites are pull through, all are full hookup. The hookups work great in this very utilitarian campground. Beyond that, it doesn't have much to offer as a park. We got a little stir crazy one night and set up the karaoke rig in the rec room. We actually got a few of the mostly seasonal patrons to come in a sing along. Once you get here, you've got to check out Mount Washington. Doing the drive to the top was awesome. There are also numerous waterfalls to see in the National Forest. If we ever come back to the White Mountains, we'd stay here again.
We stayed with the Sned Acres in order to sample the Finger Lakes wine trail. This place is right in the heart of wine country with more to do than we could pack into a week. Even in mid-August, we didn't need to run the A/C, which costs an extra $3 a night. They gave us the PA discount for 5 of our 7 nights, excluding only the weekend nights. We stayed in one of their 4 pull through sites overlooking a nice little pond with 30A/W/S hookups. One thing to beware of: 2 of the pull throughs face porch to porch, as in you and the other folks are pointed in opposite directions. I guess this saved on site development costs. This made our picnic table right next to the other folks, which was a little close with strangers. Spot 88 overlooking the pond would be the pick of the litter. We didn't use any of the facilities except the camp store, which had a modest selection of goods. We only got two TV channels on the antenna: Fox and Country Music Videos. Alan Jackson has a great tune about having a bug in his margarita, in case you're interested. It's very quiet at Sned-Acres, we'd definitely stay here again, but not in the porch to porch sites unless we were here with friends. Oh, and do not speed, it's 5mph! (Which Mr. Snedacre will remind you of, like the child you are, if you kick up too much dust on the gravel road.)
We stayed here in order to tour Niagara Falls and found a hidden gem. It's located 15 easy miles along a parkway from the interstate and Niagara Falls. The access roads are smooth blacktop with sites that are gravel. Not all sites are level, so it would be best to check it out prior to committing to one. We were in 233, nice and level and plenty of room for our 40' coach. In fact, all the sites were huge with fire rings. I can't imagine a rig that would be too big to find a spot. Electric only, but a very few sites are within reach of the water fountain/water spigots sprinkled throughout the park. People hooked up a Y valve and ran water to their rigs where possible. I saw 3 different, easy to reach dump stations. Wi-Fi unavailable in the park and my Verizon 4G phone wasn't much use. I ended up going into Youngstown and using Wi-Fi at the corner ice cream parlor. Good antenna TV reception, even had a couple french channels. The park is on Lake Ontario with a pebble beach and awesome sunsets. You can just see the Toronto skyline across the way. Large shower/bath houses were clean with laundry. We loved it, would stay here again if we're lucky enough to be in this area again.
We stayed in a full hookup spot in the back of the park, and it was nice. Plenty of swing room to back in and the sight was large and level. This place is really nice, but you are crammed in with hundreds of other mostly seasonal campers. We heard French being spoken more than English. The facilities are great and the staff was nice. The park is an easy walk to the mayhem at Old Orchard Beach, but that took about an hour to get our fill of. We used our one free day in Maine to go to Five Island Lobster and have lunch on the dock. We'd stay here again with such easy access, but the nightly rate is about as much as we've spent anywhere.
I don't know what I was thinking, but I forgot to check RV Park Reviews before I pulled into this place. As previous reviews stated, this place is a dump, but I'll start with what's good. Easy access off I-95 but DO NOT TRUST GPS. There is a National Guard training site down in town called Camp Niantic that signs will lead you to. Also, the address in the mapping software is 271 Main Street, and that will lead you to a waterfront clothing boutique. When you come off the Interstate, hang a RIGHT at the T on 156 and they're just up the hill on the right. Whoever made my reservation could have mentioned this, the elderly owner lady sure knows about it. The area is fantastic, Mystic Seaport and New London waterfront are really cool. Wi-Fi is working (on it now) and I'm not real close to the office. We're in a 40' coach and in a pull through site, no access problems but some of the sites are pretty tight. Now, the bad. Trash everywhere, too many run down seasonal campers, roads suck, office building is falling down around them, office helper was drunk at 8pm when I went to pay (cash only), really bad for $35 a night, and they charge you another $4 if you use your A/C. The owner turned 77 the day we checked in, her husband the builder and founder died years ago and the place is just falling apart. She told me they've been open for 38 years, and I bet it was a great place for a long time, but it needs to be completely re-done with all new infrastructure and buildings. The trees are worth keeping, that's about it.
Really clean park, nice and quiet. Pricey considering no cable or Wi-Fi, but we'd stay here again. It was less than some of the parks closer in to Ocean City. We stayed here to see Ocean City and Assateague, which were both great. Sites are huge, but this campground's residents are mostly weekender's that own their spots and mostly keep to themselves. We didn't use any of the facilities, but the general store, pool, office, and bathhouses all looked very new and clean. Sites are gravel, but well maintained. They come around and pick up your trash at your spot, very frequently. All the spots surround a nice little lake, very nice atmosphere.
We stayed here on our way to and from Key West. Access was very easy from a wide 4-lane Blvd just a little way from the FL turnpike. You'd never know you were in the heart of suburban Miami in this park. Most of the spots were shaded, and both pull throughs and back in spots were available. We stayed in a pull through first, which I wouldn't recommend since they're in the center island of the cul de sac (called "Pods" here) and you felt a little like you were in the middle of people's yards. The back in spots are all angled correctly and the roads are wide enough where even our 40' coach backed right in. Full hook ups worked fine. The bath/laundry facilities were a little old, but clean. The staff was very accommodating. Overall, I thought this was a great park for the location and price. Lots of folks spend the entire winter here, full timing for as long as 6 months.
Lots already written about this park. We went on a whim with some friends that are really in love with this CG. First surprise was no pull throughs, period. Second surprise was how tight the spots are. There's room for a 40' motorhome, in the spot, but you have to get in there and we had a heck of a time. The roads and sites were built in the early 70's when most folks were in much smaller rigs. Needless to say, it was really tight backing into our spot in the pitch dark. When leaving, we had to sit and wait 10 minutes while somebody in front of us tried to get parked. We empathized and sat patiently. We ate dinner at the restaurant which was tasty but Mickey is really proud of everything he sells, so not cheap. You can rent a golf cart ($$$) and zoom around like the other busy tourists, but there were nice wide walking paths everywhere. Clean, super nice park but for the money you'd expect it to be. I would only go back if staying for awhile to enjoy all the parks you can get to from here by boat/shuttle bus. We only did a one night get away, and the drama getting parked wasn't worth it.
Nice shady park on the outskirts of the Orlando metropolitan area. Louis was on duty and provided friendly check in and even walked us and guided us into our site. Roads and site are very rustic (dirt), and some of the turns are pretty tight for a larger rig but we managed to get through in our 40' coach. Pool was closed for the winter, but the other facilities were acceptable for an affordable "rustic" campground. Lots of long term residents, but it didn't have the trailer park feel you get in some of these Florida CG's. We had a 30 amp/water only site, but since we only stayed one night that was fine. We'd stay again if in that area. Downtown Sanford is a nice waterfront town on Lake Monroe, lots of fishing and boating nearby on the St. Johns river and associated lakes.
We stayed here in the "new section" President's day weekend 2012. The "old section" is very rustic with giant oaks and it's right up against the Suwannee river. The old section has limited hookups, and the facilities are dated, but maintained. Wi-Fi was free in the rec room and worked fine. The new section where we stayed had full 50 amp, water, sewer, and 35 channels of TV all included. It's an open field where they have created multiple, big rig friendly pull through sites, but no trees and the bathhouse/pool area is still under construction. That being said, it was only about a 50 yard walk to the old section and its facilities. The sites and patio area were crushed gravel with an asphalt road. The last 1/4 mile before the campground is still dirt, but hard packed and we had no problem in our HR 40 coach. The staff was very friendly and Grandma Susie's Cookin' Shack turned out really tasty food. There was bingo on Friday night in the lodge, and we won trivia and sang some songs during combo karaoke/trivia on Saturday night. Good times! We'd like to stay again later this year to see the progress. The new owners are investing a lot of money and we hope the place takes off.
