We ended up staying here at the last minute because the campground where we had reservations was flooded by severe storms. We were glad that they were able to accommodate us on short notice. The office staff was helpful and directed us to a nearby RV parts center for some needed supplies. They were also willing to let us change our site if we wished. This was a very convenient campground for visiting Gettysburg Visitor Center and Battlefield. Unfortunately, there were many Boy Scout troops camping here during our stay, some of which were loud and unruly early in the morning.
The campground hosts were extremely friendly and attentive and were very concerned about our safety during severe thunderstorms. As for the campground, the accommodations were satisfactory. We were disappointed to find out that the hiking trails were not accessible by foot, although the owner did offer to drive us to the trailhead.
This park was reasonably priced and offered full campground hookups, with a nice view of the marshes off Croatan Sound. The manager on duty was very friendly and helpful. It serves as a nice basecamp to access the beaches and activities of the outer banks, however there are very few things to do within and immediately surrounding the campground.
Perfectly suited for it's purpose as an overnight stop off I-81, this friendly campground offers level pull-thru sites with full hook ups and Wi-Fi. The climate-controlled bathrooms were clean and offered large showers with a comfortable dressing area.
We arrived shortly after sunset and checked into the first campground along the park road which was Camp Burson. This campground offered full hook-ups and big rig access. They were currently building a new bathhouse which was absolutely necessary in this section. The park is beautiful with great hiking trails including a CCC trail and CCC cabins. The camp host was helpful. Next time I would try Camp B which was further in the park, however I did speak with someone who had great difficulty negotiating the tight turns and trees in this section. My only complaint was the excessive pet fee charged of $5.00 per pet per night.
This was a lovely state park, however with some annoying little quirks. The large pull-thru sites only offered 50 amp service, but luckily we did have an adapter to convert our 30 amp unit into a 20 amp plug. There were no instructions for after hour check in, nor any park information or brochures available at the closed camp store. Contact phone numbers posted did not contain the local area code, which is necessary when using an out of area cell phone. Lastly, the heat blower in the bathroom made it too unbearably hot, and I am certain a perfect environment for a proliferation of bacteria colonies.
This campground offers nice, wooded sites, however it took three tries to find a level one. A helpful attendant stopped by to see if everything was to our liking. We used the park only briefly before leaving to tour Shiloh Battlefield.
With easy access from I-20 and to Vicksburg NMP, this was an ideal location. It was also a great value with the free buffet breakfast coupons received at check-in. The staff was friendly and helpful. We did notice some train noise from the railroad adjacent the park. It seems as if big-rigs with a tow-vehicles had difficulty due to limited length in the sites.
The campground appears to offer a few overnight sites in the back of the park. The owner stayed after hours in the office to greet us and lead us to our pull-thru site. We did use the pay showers which could certainly use some updating. Otherwise, this campground was very quiet and nicely wooded.
This is certainly not your typical campground. After proceeding to the back of an abandoned grocery store parking lot we were greeted at the gate by a nice young gentleman clad in suit and tie. We camped under the light of a highway billboard in an adequately sized site on brick pavers. In the daylight we were able to walk leisurely to the French Quarter. With this great access to New Orleans, who needs picnic tables and fire rings?
This park provides full hook-ups on large paved sites and is nestled in a maritime forest in post-Katrina recovery. There is easy access to sugar-sand beaches and multi-use trails. The store, laundry, and activity areas are currently under reconstruction. The sites are situated along a road that is about 1 1/2 miles end-to-end.
This is a quiet hilltop campground with nice, but hilly, hiking trails. Most of the sites are situated in an open field with the rest of the sites on the perimeter offering some shade. Besides hiking, there are limited activities for families except for a summer movie program.
This is an RV parking lot at the beach. Fairly inexpensive with good access to the beach and saltwater fishing. There are no fires permitted at the sites, but we were told there was a fire ring available for public use. The road and construction noise detracted from our enjoyment. The park permit allowed access to beachfront areas, some areas allow leashed pets on the beach. Shopping and restaurants are a few miles away.
Generally we love Pennsylvania state park camping, but I feel impelled to give a warning to anyone who may be considering a stay at Caledonia. Although many of the sites looked very spacious, we were cramped into site 145. It appeared as if they converted a 6-space bathroom parking area into 3 sites, and we were squeezed in the middle, on asphalt, for the weekend. The nice hiking trails of the park were well maintained and well marked, but after a long hiking day, it was not very relaxing to return back to our site.
