Prior review captures most of this location's strong points so no need to repeat. Could use some gravel refreshment, however. The little diner they have offers a great alternative to cooking in. Internet signal is somewhat weak and only practical if you're outside your unit. I followed the signs in and the GPS out. Both worked well but the GPS route was shorter. I don't quite understand the KOA caveat. Can't miss either way. We'd certainly stay again.
We've stayed here several times before and it remains one of my favorite overnight stops in the US for price, convenience, maintenance, and overall friendliness. This time we arrived just after a torrential downpour but were met at our assigned site by a employee that immediately directed us to a dryer venue. Can't comment on longer stay potential. The pool looks first class, however. East/West or North/South layover point - this campsite is the one.
Camping is mostly around the periphery of a big, working farm and as such is charming for those who want this experience. The premium water-view sites don't have electric and many are more pop-top and tent oriented. We did fine Site #170 and #177 probably has the best view. I wouldn't recommend Recompense for anything much over 30 foot RV. Again no electricity in the water view sites. Showers are clean and modern but cost $1.00 for 10 minutes. Wireless is limited directly from of the Camp Office but works fine there. Cell reception was adequate. The peace, quite, and cool evening breeze was appreciated. We would certainly camp here again.
I can't add anything to the prior positive reviews. For long time travelers of the Shenandoah Valley please be aware that the original franchise has changed locations. The old one still exists under a new name. Both are lovely and deserve your patronage. Except for the bull-frogs this location is extremely quite. We hope to return often.
I agree with all the prior evaluations as a very adequate and pleasant overnight or weekend stop. Some of the picnic tables were badly bent and if I managed the campground I'd improve this cosmetic flaw.Other than that it's a well kept property. We'd certainly return.
Experienced campers will temper prior reviews by exploring the past reviews of the low raters. If they've only posted one prior review, and it was also lousy, then one suspects that they don't understand what on the road or campsite evaluation really means. We've utilized the Yamassee/Point South KOA for the past 6 years as an overnight stay. It is in the South Carolina low country and drainage is a problem. Puddles and mud are to be expected. As to grass, which is hard to raise in sand and shade, I observe that they've improved the situation every year, and this year our site (#16 pull-through) was nicely landscaped. The swimming pool is well maintained as is the rest of the facility. The staff is friendly and accommodating. Best of all is the pizza and wings service. It's not a resort location, but for a solid overnight or weekend it's recommended, and we will always return.
A decent facility for an overnight and the second time we‘ve used it as such in the past several years. Was easy on and off 95 and the traffic noise isn’t too bad considering. We happened to experience a rainy night and the concerns expressed about mud are true. A good load of gravel on each site is definitely needed. The other negative was a huge bonfire (looked like trash or construction material) busily burning in the lot next door despite heavy rain. While the wind pushed the considerable pall of smoke in the other direction it could have been a problem. We would stay overnight again: sans bonfire.
“Build it and they will come”. Much of this site is situated on a work camp built for government project workers. The owners have spent a considerable sum upgrading the buildings, landscaping the campsites and providing camping amenities. The park is large and was virtually empty when we passed through although they say their traffic consists mainly of seasonal campers from the West Coast. Be sure and dine at the Tin Top restaurant about five miles off site. Phoenix is 45 miles at 70 mph so it’s not as isolated as it first appears. If staying in Tonopah I’d gladly stay here again.
Tight but well laid out urban type park. In fact one of the best parks with a city location that we’ve stayed in. Bike trails emanate from the edge of the park. They had resort-like recreational facilities: swimming pool, exercise room, etc. Cost-Co, etc. within walking distance and close proximity to urban mass transit. Everything worked well and we would return.
The entrance can be a little intimidating if your not pre-prepared. It's a narrow, steep downhill, (but blessedly short) approach to an equally narrow causeway over the Big Sur River. I’d might hesitate booking if I were a really big Class A with tow-car. Once your breath returns, however, you’ll be happy you chose Riverside . Limited amenities but it has a real nice wilderness camping atmosphere. The shallow river provides unlimited play and tubing opportunities for kids of all ages. It’s a great place to come back to and soak your feet after a hard day of Big Sur hiking. Fuel and propane are close by. It’s also close enough to Carmel to make that area accessible. We would use again.
Not much to add to all the 9 and 10 ratings. Because of the restriction of pets to certain loops and limited 50 amp sites, I’d be sure to reserve if either apply. Also, they absolutely check rabies certificates so have yours on board. Watch out for abundant wildlife on the park roads. We’d return.
There’s no question that Lands End is a nicely maintained and spacious RV park. The literature and web site, however, may lead one to believe that there’s just a little more direct proximity to Georgian Bay or Lake Huron. In fact the only water view is from a tiny beach on a tiny “bight” a fair walk across the street from the actual campsites. Everything else is deep in the forest.It is a nice forest, with nice sites but definitely “forest”. The only other glaring deficiency is the dump site. It’s very inconvenient to access down narrow roads on a fair slope, towards the back of the campground. It is not exactly the kind of terrain you want to negotiate when leaving early in the morning. They do have a pump-out service but unless your there on a Thursday ($10.00) it will cost you $15.00. The Wi-fi works well if you park next to the office but not elsewhere in the park. We’d stay again in that Lands End is probably the best in Tobermory but we’d be less naive about the actual site environment.
A mediocre campground for the price. On the positive side: the pull through sites were more than adequate even for the biggest rigs. The pool and recreational facilities looked well maintained. The restroom/showers were quite a distance from our site thus we didn’t use them. As to negatives: they advertise Wi-Fi but it didn’t work. Wi-Fi that won’t connect to anything is not Wi-Fi! Excuses ranged from lightning strikes, to poor local support, to complete expression of ignorance of the internet on the part of the staff. We were supposed to be comforted by the fact that they will be getting a new system in several weeks. Even part-time travelers rely on a reliable internet connection these days. Making fun of computers just doesn’t cut it. Thank goodness for Barnes and Noble. Also, there weren’t enough dumpsters to accommodate the traffic, especially on a windy Monday morning. Finally, there was a dry rot hole in our picnic table that you could loose a ketchup bottle in. I might stay again if they got the Wi-Fi situation reliably resolved.
Only stayed for one night on the way to Tobermory. The campsite is very convenient to Sault Ste. Marie and Provincial Route 17. Still the feeling is as if you're way out in the country. Sites are gravel and fairly level. It rained a lot the night we were there with relatively few puddles. The Wi-Fi signal was very strong at our site although I heard others complain of a weak signal. The balance of the facility seemed well maintained and the store was well stocked. Also had a nice laundry. We’d certainly stay here again.
This is a big facility and an excellent park. It is a clean and well maintained. There are a variety of sites. There are sites with a spectacular view of the bridge although these are limited in number. We had a site on the water (#145) that was not bridge-view, but looked out at the straits and Mackinac Island. These are water and electricity only sites with a dump located quite convenient in or out. Our site was large and grassy although some of the sites are gravel. Internet is pay-for, but with excellent reception. After having a lot of experience, “free internet” is sometimes suspect. I’d rather pay for reliable, fast internet separately from the campsite fee. The shower facilities were limited but with plenty of hot water and good pressure. It’s about 3 convenient miles from Mackinaw City, with a dedicated bike path to downtown if you are so inclined. This same path goes 60 miles in the opposite direction, through Cheboygan (14 miles) and beyond. Great riding. We hope to return.
Nicely located on the way to Whister which will host the 2010 Winter Olympics. Aesthetics could have been improved. Lots of constructions equipment, building materials and wood in various stages of cutting lying around. Good open, level gravel sites with grass areas in between. Good laundry and shower facilities. Nearby rifle range adds to country ambiance. A little noisy in the morning when the big trucks utilize the nearby side rode. Great scenery from campsite. Access to bike trails. Would revisit
Pretty densely populated campground in a sea shore resort community. Lot’s to see, do and experience in the area. We stayed for three nights and were satisfied with the layout and accommodations even though it was probably filled to 100% Great pool environment. The sprinklers did get my trailer wet and I was cleaning aluminum for the next week. That’s the price you pay for the nicely grassed environment. Probably on of the best in Oceano. Would return.
This KOA was situated in a Cottonwood Grove almost downtown Miles City which you could walk to. It made for a pleasant one night stay. Easy in and out with big, level sites. The pool looked well maintained, laundry was adequate and Wi-Fi worked well. A negative was a dirty mens shower/restroom exacerbated by rank standing water in the floor drains. Considering the level of the water in the sewer stand pipe, I think this may be a recurring problem. Still, staff should be aware of it and react first thing in the morning especially when tent campers need to use the facility. The other negative was that the store had zero inventory either chronically or in anticipation of closing for the winter season. These items notwithstanding I’d overnight here again.
This is a very pretty, family run RV park situated on the banks of the Yellowstone river just 3 miles south of Livingston. I don’t mean near I mean right on a deep, fast flowing bend where you can observe passing raft trips, canoe expeditions and fish for trout. The facility is simple but well maintained and with the exception of internet, everything worked to satisfaction. The staff / owners were friendly and helpful. There’s a 4 mile paved bike path into town just across the street and a nice place for eating just 100 yards up the road. There are a number of season long residents staying here, and they were without exception cordial. I only hesitate to rate Rock Canyon a 9 or 10 because of the poor Internet performance. A number of the other residents shared this concern. We would camp here again.
I liked this KOA and rate it a 7 (6.5?) overall but with some conditions. First if you are a “big rig” of any sort there are clearance issues top, bottom, and side, in most of the sites. Narrow roads, tight turns and untrimmed branches are the rule. A prior review would lead you to believe that the place is ugly which is not the case. Still the brush is a visual and operational detriment. Count on being led to your site by a cheerful, enthusiastic teen who may or may not have a clue about bus or trailer steering geometry. The good news is that once situated the sites are fairly private and separated from the neighbor. Given the amount of time and money they evidently spend on flower plantings I can’t understand the lack of tree trimming. Level is hit or miss and again very site dependent. If your bunking in a behemoth and value your paint job I’d advise a pre-entry golf cart ride to the proposed site to check your probability of getting in, They have good internet, a very well stocked store with a snack bar/soda fountain and of course the water park to engage the young. It’s suitable for sliding and splashing but not swimming. The 20+ miles of improved bike trails along the Missouri River are second to none in the US and reason enough to visit GF. The Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center is a gem. Free live music is offered for two hours in the evening. No cable-which at $50 a night is a little on the cheap side. We took a ride by the other RV facility listed for Great Falls and would pretty much agree with the reviews written about it. Given another trip to Montana we would return to GF KOA.
This is a very good KOA. Given it’s limited season and location close to the West Glacier park entrance the pricing is reasonable. I’ve paid more for one night gravel pits in the desert. The water/electricity sites are treed and have fire pits. The full service sites are in an open grassy area with level gravel drives and great views of the surrounding hills and mountains. There are no fires allowed at the full service sites but I find that a positive given the wide variety of fire tending skills of the casual camper. Nightly lawn sprinkling does necessitate protecting or bringing in anything that you don't want soaked The on-site restaurant serves breakfast and dinner. (I only had the typical KOA pancake dinner and it was ok) The restrooms and showers were a bit of a hike from our site and we didn’t use them but judging from the care taken of the rest of the facility I’m assuming they were equally well maintained. The internet worked well and we weren’t tempted to hook up the TV antenna. The dog walking was convenient I would camp here again given the opportunity.
I’m generally not a Passport America fan but in this case I’d make an exception. We paid the full rate but PA membership would have paid for itself. I’d estimate that 80% of this location are occupied by people using it as a winter retreat. There are lots of permanent installations and Park Models. At this time of year it was relatively unoccupied. They do a nice job of accommodating folks like us just passing through. It is convenient to all of Palm Springs and Palm Desert. We’d certainly stay here again.
This is truly a place you’d like to come and stay for a while. Too bad we only had 4 days . Proximity ( thought not physically) to US 101 and the RR tracks are an unfortunate feature that must be overlooked if you want to stay anywhere on this magnificent piece of coast line. If you don’t consider train whistle’s romantic you might be disappointed. The views are unobstructed. The facility is first class and they’ve dumped a ton of cost into this park so expect first class pricing. You do get what you pay for, most assuredly. The restaurant and store at the adjacent resort are but a short walk down the hill and the food and merchandise were good and ample. There is no dearth of hiking trails throughout the surround landscape with different lengths and levels of difficulty. There were also some bike trails although a little overgrown. All-in-all a 10 and we’d come back again
This is the class act in Coos Bay. Everything is upgraded and spotless. A large number of the sites are occupied by long term residents who are obviously proud to reside there. The sites are super sized . A rig, car, boat and other toys can spread out in one paved level site and still enjoy the privacy of the hedges that separate each site. This goes for the pull through sites even though the site map doesn’t show this. There’s a little noise from the highway but given that there are no, non- highway alternatives to Midway so this can’t figure in the scoring. Charleston (all the fresh pacific fish you can eat) and the State parks with their coastal grandeur and facilities are just two and four miles south respectively. We stayed for 4 days over the 4th of July and probably would have stayed longer if our schedule permitted. The campground sponsored a great cook-out and we got to meet a lot of the residents-who by the way don't write reviews. It is not a great place for kids given the mature composition of the occupants. Dog provisions were adequate and well maintained If you like the Casino, a bus picks up periodically - on site. For the mature camper who values ambiance and like minds this place is a real value. We’d return.
This park was definitely in need of some upgrading. It might have been the time of year but there wasn’t much staff in evidence. The couple who run (own?) the facility were very accommodating and the baths and showers though old would rate 10 on a cleanliness scale. Yes, there were lots of do not signs, but George Carlin would have found some of them amusing, especially the “flush frequently“ entreaty. Despite an objective 6 rating based, mostly on the visuals I wouldn’t hesitate to overnight here again if ever passing through. Two days might stretch it though.
This is a great location overlooking the city and mountains and quite spectacular in a clear evening. We had a full moon to add to it. It’s a very well maintained campsite and they do seem to rake the gravel every morning with water spray to control the dust.
The site descriptions in ReserveAmerica list 20 Amp service only but we had 30 at our site (A-9) as did the rest of the full hook-up sites. With high 90’s as the daytime temperature this was appreciated. If you disregard the traffic noise from I-84 you have an almost picture perfect campsite. During the day the traffic noise in the sites directly backing on the highway is annoying but it seems to diminish in the evening. I didn’t notice the trains but relative to the highway the rails are a good distance from the full service facilities. Once you leave the campground it takes about 10 miles of driving to return. Your trading this inconvenience, however, for the opportunity to stay in a beautiful part of the Columbia river gorge - inexpensively. The river view sites are truly awesome but I believe they're all without utilities. The facility is loaded with family’s and kids so be alert. We would gladly return.
A good facility especially adequate for big rigs with wide pull-thoughts and clear satellite space. A few mobile home sites on the property while not especially adding to the ambiance were not an annoyance at all- kind of retro as were the horses along the opposite side. Laundry and pay-for showers were well maintained. Stay toward the back for the best dog walking and toward the front for the best WiFi reception. We were in the middle so both were fine. Occasionally WiFi got slow. Cable was good. The sites way up-front are narrow gravel back-ins. Ok for overnight but not as appealing as the grassy sites out back. Try to avoid these front sites. Directly across the street is a great little shopping complex for hardware, outdoor gear and groceries. There are also a number of good eateries in the downtown area. Forks is caught up in the current “Twilight” craze so I’d suggest reservations in that camping is limited in town. The owners were charming and accommodating. Dog policy is a little complex but fair. All in all and enjoyable place, and we would return.
Kalaloch has location going for it but as a camping experience it was disappointing and we cut our stay a day short. It has a heavy tent camping orientation. There are some RV sites directly overlooking the ocean but the majority of sites are buried back in thick forest with little light or ventilation. There was a constant pall of smoke from smoldering campfires laced with whiffs of burning packaging or newspaper. Dogs would bark frequently and annoyingly. At the back of the campground highway noise from 101 is constant. By Sunday morning the trash dumpsters were full to overflowing. Other than the restrooms, which were kept clean, there are no other facilities to critique. It’s pure dry camping. If one can reserve an oceanfront site (which I could not four months in advance) then I think Kalaloch worth a couple of nights stay but if not I’d stay elsewhere and day trip to the park and enjoy the beaches and nature trails. Lunch at the Kalaloch Lodge is also worthwhile.
I question the Resort reference in the site name. For recreation you have to go off-site. Ditto for kids activities. No big deal, there’s plenty of opportunity in Bend. But!!! As a place to peacefully park your rig and enjoy the beautifully, park like setting with lots of elbow room, and immaculate grooming this park is hard to match. It’s relatively expensive but everything is 1st class including the clientele. I haven’t seen a more impressive collection of hardware since the Tampa Show. Not that everyone is driving a 1.5M big rig but everyone, regardless of size had something of value. Beside the Class A’s we had 5 Airstreams and a bunch of Std. Poodles the three nights we were there. Some previous reviews have included conditions which were not in evidence when we stayed. Maybe things were changed because of these prior reviews. 1. There was no dog deposit. There was a rule that if they had to pick up after your dog you’d be charged $25.00 - fair enough. Dog run provisions were ample. 2. Cable was free and worked very well. There was a $100.00 deposit for a converter box, returned at the end of your stay - so?. 3. Internet was free and work fairly well. I’d rate Crown Villa a 10 if it wasn’t for the fact that the lawn mowing, trimming, blowing horde showed up at our site at 9:30. They all wore hearing protective devices but don’t issue residents the same. The edging device had decibel characteristics somewhere between a string trimmer and a paver saw The campsite was only about half full so they could have started somewhere else. Other than that, no negative issues. We’d most assuredly would book Crown Villa again if we come this way.
This is a very nice desert camp ground and demonstrates that desert camp grounds don’t have to be stark. Road runners, desert rabbits and other wildlife share the park. It’s a bit of a drive to Carlsbad Caverns but the quality of the park makes up for the extra minutes. In addition if you want to see Roswell it’s closer than staying close to the park. A number of other attractions are within convenient driving distance. We would definitely return.
Despite the improbable entrance through a used car lot, this is one of the best parks we’ve stayed in during our West Coast trip. Also, despite the somewhat idiosyncratic lecture you get on pet hygiene it is a very pet friendly venue. Almost everybody had a well behaved, and well walked pet. The surrounding neighborhood while not middle class residential is neat, clean, quiet and convenient to everything. In fact Redding itself is one of the easiest cities to get around in we’ve experienced. The grounds of the park are immaculately landscaped and groomed. At 7:30 PM the landscape guy was still trimming individual tree leaves with scissors. Check out the Koi pond near the swimming pool. All utilities work well. Watch the water pressure though. At 85 PSI you should use a reducer. There’s apparently plenty of internet bandwidth because response time was fractions of seconds. If they shower and bathroom facility’s I’d give it a 10 but my nine is very strong. You get all this for $25 a night. The best deal in California to my mind. We’ll definitely try to return to Redding and Green Acres.
Once you get within the very secure perimeter, you wouldn’t know your in a major metropolitan area. The transient sites are shaded and spacious and well tended. There are numerous more permanent users toward the back . The pool is huge and inviting and the restroom/shower areas are convenient and very clean. It was very quiet for the weekend. During the weekdays the surrounding business might be a little noisy but I can’t attest to this. The location is about as central as one could choose for visiting both Dallas and Fort Worth (don’t miss the Stockyards) attractions. Shopping and other services are a very short drive. There are nearby residential areas suitable for walking or jogging. I’d certainly recommend this KOA to anyone visiting the area.
This was our second stay in three years. I thought that it had lost just a little bit of snap without the KOA services. Never-the-less it’s a good solid campground, quiet and secure,and we’d certainly stay here the next time through.
It’s hard to rate this campground. As one of the office staff put it, “we’re not a destination KOA” This is true enough. While well maintained, the facility is purely functional with little scenery or greenery. Narrow sites, concrete pads and gravel in between are the rule. The pool was crowded with young’uns during most of the day and one suspects these are outside youth groups and their counselors rather than campers. Wireless worked at all times but during the day was quite slow. The fenced pet run was well done. The location affords fair proximity to all of Baton Rouge’s attractions. Shopping and services are close by and it is very convenient to the interstate. At rush hour traffic is a big factor though this is not KOA’a fault. Some of the above not withstanding, we’d stay here again if visiting or passing through Baton Rouge
Another one night stay and good, convenient overnight stopping off point. Long level pull through sites, treed and well drained. A very simple facility with no picnic tables or fire pits. Quiet residential neighborhood and the parks atmosphere is the same. Not much to do but comfortable and reasonably priced. We’d stop again.
We only stayed here overnight on a long trip west. The campground was well layered out with all pull-through sites. Not fancy but quite functional Convenient to services and restaurants which were within walking distance. The pool looked very inviting although we couldn’t use it due to heavy rain and thunder. We’re thinking about returning for a couple of days this Winter.
Point South KOA is our habitual stop when going back to Florida on the way home. It’s an OK KOA although there might be better deals out there, and for a longer stay I might shop around. Forty bucks is a a little pricy for what you get but it’s convienient It’s mostly sand under pine, drains well, and is preferable in rainstorms to grass and mud. All of the facilities work and appear well maintained. Good free internet. Pay for cable. Great pizza, which keeps me coming back.
The campsite is very convenient to the quaint and historic town and right on the water. St. Martins famous sea caves are visible from the location. The sites are big rig sized front to back although a little narrow side to side. There are lots of evening activities from pot luck suppers to folk music jam sessions. The sea captain architecture of a number of St. Martins Homes is very picturesque. There are several neat little restaurants - mostly with a seafood orientation. The nearby Fundy Trail provides great scenic views and hiking for only $3.00 a day. Fundy Trail Inc. even runs a shuttle on weekends to return you to your car from the hiking trails should you tire out. Fuel and supplies are right outside the gate. For the size I thought the shower/bathroom facilities were a little limited so plan accordingly. This appears to be a popular facility so I’d suggest reservations. We would definitely stay here again
We stay here primarily as an interim location between Kouchibouguac and Forillon, and because it looked to have an attractive web site. This is primarily a “beach resort” for Quebec residents due to the warm water. 98% of the license plates were from Quebec. Sites are a little close but big rig friendly and easily accessible. Not a lot of English is spoken or appears in the signage in this section of Quebec but this was not a problem. Beubassin had a bilingual staff who were very helpful. The free internet speed and reliability was awesome. There wasn’t anything that didn’t download instantaneously. Stocking up on staples in downtown Bonaventure went well. They have an IGA that’s one of the best I’ve seen anywhere. Rte 132 has very ample bike shoulders and provides level rides right along the coast in either direction for 20 + miles. (More I’m sure but that’s as far as I went.) Over-all we enjoyed our three day stay there and would return.
Five inches of rain per day and 25 kt winds for 3 out of the four days didn’t dampen our enthusiasm for this park. The individual sites are ample and well drained - thank goodness. If you want electrics reserve well in advance. The bi-lingual staff was friendly and enthusiastic as were most of the Quebecois campers. Gaspe seems to have a large residual English speaking population so communication is not a problems. They have a great heated swimming pool and recreation area. The various sight-seeing cruises were shut down for weather so we can’t comment but they looked outstanding. Don’t miss Cap Rosier and Cap Bon-a mi, especially the beach. I think it rivals Hopewell Rocks with no charge. Try the no-permit-required mackerel fishing from the pier for excitement. The hike out to Cap Gaspe (Lands End) is truly memorable and as a dividend we saw a bear and seals. You also get to hike a piece of the International Appalachian Trail. Another great Canadian National Park. In addition to the rate above there is the $7/Day/Person entry fee but well worth it for the facilities available
If your coming off the Confederation Bridge onto Prince Edward Island, this is the first campground you hit. We got here through some word-of-mouth referrals and were: A. glad we did and B. sorry we hadn't planned to stay longer. It's a really nice place to stay with a huge music offering. Additionally it's about 50 meters from the Confederation bicycle trail which runs the whole length (300km) of PEI. What could be sweeter? Check out the web-site. We'd come back.
As close to the perfect camping experience as it’s going to get. The sites are spacious and level. Facilities are clean - although why they chose to clean at 7:30 in the morning is beyond me. Great water/beach exposure, hiking/nature trails and the best bicycling experience yet in Canada. Our people experience was no different than any place else. Most of the campers and staff, regardless of places of origin, were friendly and helpful. Keep in mind that this is a very “French language” dominated region and some folks are as uncomfortable engaging in English communication as we French deficient folk are in the opposite. Walk down main street in almost any American city and sing out a hearty Bonjour and see what the reaction will be. Shyness is often interpreted as aloofness but it was not in great evidence here. Yes there is the daily fee but even when added to the campsite fee it’s still a great bargain given the quality of facilities available. If you love the outdoors be sure to consider this location. We would return here in a heartbeat.
A convenient downtown location in Antigonish. You can walk to most services so it could be a good place to alight without unhooking. We requested a pull-through site which we got but still had to un-hook to avoid hanging out into the driveway. If your towing and want a true pull-through be very specific with them on this. There's lots of seasonals and lots of rental park models but the venue is clean, well kept and has good security. We chose Antigonish frankly because the Pictou reviews were bad both on rvparkreviews and from Canadians we had talked to enroute. Antigonish is about an hour drive to the PEI ferry so you have to get up early to catch the 9:30 - say leave at 7:00. The ferry runs frequently, however, so if you miss one the next is less that 1:30 later. Going to PEI the ferry is free and you can't reserve but it was no problem for an RV. We would use this campground again.
The campground itself is rather simple and plain. The facilities are clean, the sites adequate. It's not particularly cheap especially considering that you have to ante up 8.00 per night/person for staying in the park. This aside you're paying for the privilege of staying in one of North Americas most unique sites. Both the interpretive center and its programs and the information center are extensive and provide an unusual value added. Located on the most scenic section of the Cabot Trail, breathtaking scenery, views of flora and fauna and spectacular hikes are readily at hand. Several of the best trails start right at the campground. 10 miles down the Cabot trail, the Skyline trail traces the top of a ridge overlooking the Gulf of St. Lawrence. As advertised we saw plenty of Moose and whales. The town of Cheticamp is charming and has much better facilities and attractions than say - Ingonish. There are a number of wi-fi hot spots in town so communications isn't as limited as it might seem. To me this has to be the premier destination on Cape Breton Island. We will return
Good solid KOA with great access to hiking, biking and natural assets of the region which are extensive. Would advise requesting an upper level site if you are staying any more than one night. The lower level is subject to truck traffic noise starting at 4 o'clock in the morning. With that proviso we would stay here again.
This campground is about as central to excursions to Halifax and Peggy’s Cove as you could find. The sites can be a little close but it’s not uncomfortable. The seasonal campers were delightful. There was a little bit of “kid” noise on Saturday night but it went away after 10:00. The people running the place were uniformly pleasant and accommodating. Wi-Fi worked well. A really good facility and we would definitely stay again.
Ditto most other reviews. The lighthouse is worth the easy hike out. Beware that while there are Senior Discounts for Sunday night stays, the "reservation service" doesn't volunteer this. When we inquired at check in we were told we'd have to re-contact the "reservation service" to get a credit. Somehow I think I'll pass on the hassle. At my site the sewer pipe was above my outlet-thus not usable. No big deal. It was a good overall stay and we would return
We couldn’t have been more pleased. We’re informed that the facility has recently changed hands and the results of a lot of capital improvements are evident. Everything seems new. There are a lot of seasonal and equity type residents but my observation of kids enjoying the golf and swimming facilities leads me to the observation that this place is family friendly. Access to Lake Champlain (marina just across the road) is excellent and the highways are very bike friendly. Great general store. We’re planning a much longer stay next year.
The Newburgh KOA is actually in Plattekill NY , north of Newburgh, close to Poughkeepsie and almost to New Paltz. This, by the way, is good if you’re visiting any of the Hudson Valley Schools or attractions. New York City is a long way away, but there’s not any camping much closer. Having been born and grown up in the immediate area, trips back are enigmatic. The area has always just been of the verge of a renaissance, but never quite gets there. After tearing down half the city of Newburgh, the river-front has staged a revival and I’d highly recommend an evening trip there. Also cruises are available. I’d love to go back and do the Bannermans’s Island trip. Growing up 50 years ago it was a forbidden place of extreme mystery. The KOA facilities are very extensive, pool, jumping pillow, fishing, miniature golf. The sites are large and mostly private. Some open sites are available for those with dishes. Wireless was a bit slow and erratic, but worked ok most of the time. We would return
Delightful location convenient to the Charlottesville/ UVA area. We only stayed one night to visit friends but wished we could have stayed on. The campground is divided into an upper and lower section. We stayed in the lower portion which is easy in and out and big rig oriented. It’s convenient to the swimming pool and other campground services. It borders a little stream which is quite pretty. The upper section is more treed and scenic and would be appropriate for longer stays. - which we will do next time. It was a bit of a hike (drive ?) up another hill to the spotless shower house but the panoramic view from there made it a non-issue. The surrounding roads have wide shoulders for biking and lots of little antique/curio shops to stop at. Great vineyards too. The town of Crozet is charming with a number of good restaurants. Will definitely return.
Review: This site is very convenient to I-95 yet has a very rural and quiet setting. Beware that there are no services at this exit but there are services relatively close by at both points north and south. Just stock up before stopping. Everything was neat, clean and well appointed. Since the weather didn’t cooperate the pool was not something we used but looked quite inviting. The shoulders on the surrounding country roads are adequate for comfortable bike riding so exercise is possible without undue risk. Wi-Fi seemed a bit erratic. I had to keep running diagnostic and correction routines. This may be a function of “Vista” or maybe satellite on a cloudy, rainy day. It worked but was slow. The staff was very pleasant and helpful and we will definitely use this KOA when passing through again.
Very convienient. Good pull-throughs for an overnight stop. If I was staying a couple of days I'd request site toward the back. The noise from 95 was not objectionable for this type of facility, and watching some of the traffic was interesting. Will use again when passing through.
Perry, Florida has certainly seen better days. Still, there’s an old Florida feel to the location that makes a stop or brief stay here, enjoyable. I75 has created a sufficient while not necessary bypass to Perry yet a diversion to old Rt 19 would be worthwhile to those heading for but not in a rush to get further south or north. The Perry KOA is, well, a KOA. In a word predictable. Adequate facilities, including cable tv and wireless internet that work. Attentive and competent staffing a decent location and an attempt to provide an array of interesting activities. Good snack-bar with pizza etc... delivery to your unit. The transient, pull-through sites are a bit tight (except D row) so if your planning on spending a couple of days request the wooded sites. Would certainly stay here again.
Would be a 9.5 if the scoring scale allowed. Minor deductions for 1. No towel/clothing hooks in bath house, 2. Site a little thin on gravel and a bit un-level. Petty items aside this County park is a wonderful facility for everyone. Bicycle paths, playgrounds, and fishing opportunities are sure to delight kids and adults. The huge (including water access) off leash dog area will appeal to the four footed camper in your party. If you remain in the Park you should not run out of things to do. The web site gives a complete listing. The Park is very convenient to historic downtown Charleston via Route 30. The sites are mostly spacious. The park was booked solid when we arrive and our site was next to the dumpster, so I was skeptical. The site, however, compensated for this by being about 100 feet wide with lawn areas on both sides. The dumpster was well screened and the benefit was that we met a lot of people in the process. Even booked solid there is no feeling of crowding in this park. It’s a little more expensive than your average county park but unquestionably worth the price and then some. We would and will definitely return for a longer stay.
Call in advance, the campground is pretty far out in the country and small. I'm not sure too many big rigs could be accommodated. Amenities are way down on the 1-10 scale but the location and atmosphere more than compensate. A great view of the historic Missouri River, live entertainment and friendly locals added to the ambiance. It truly feels that you've stepped way back in time. The Thai food concession added to the wonder. If your thing is bicycle riding, you're situated on 30 miles of improved RR bed - fantastic riding. Coopers Landings is out of the way but unique and we would return in a heart beat.
Based on the site we were assigned I'd rate this campground a 10. Site #4 has the most beautiful view of the lake imaginable with a little terrace and picnic furniture. A 28 foot travel trailer just fit so don't request it for anything bigger. Otherwise the sites are a little close and I wouldn't have been quite as enthusiastic had I been assigned one of these. There appears to be alot of seasonal and full-time occupants in this campground but on the other hand it has an aura of stability and is very quiet and peaceful. Boating and fishing opportunities abound even though the lake lever is currently very low. The pool area looks great but this late in the season it was closed. Nice breakfast at the snack bar. A good value a nice family atmosphere and we will definitely return.
There is some traffic noise but it's not of the truck traffic-engine brake-offensive variety. On the other hand the convenience to Winchester and its historic attractions is great. The staff was professional, if not warm and fuzzy, and the guidance to our site and backing instructions was the best I've ever seen. The campground is very nicely landscaped and there is plenty of room to roam. Dog walking is especially spacious. Wireless I-net is pay for but reasonable and it works flawlessly. No cable but that's not a big thing with us. While I've seen reference to the live stock facility in the area, there's no evidence of it once your within the confines of the campground. One also feels secure. Overall a very pleasant two night experience and would definitely return.
