Tanglewood Park Campground, Clemmons, North Carolina

Date of Stay: August, 2019 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

This is a repeat visit. First Impression: Forested, clean, spacious. Part of a city park. Safety: Minimal night lighting. No concerns. Access: I-40, exit 180, south side to Clemmons Road, about ¼ mile turn left. All roads in good condition, good signage, Garmin GPS is accurate. Office: For registration and area information only. No store. Credit cards accepted. Online reservations available. No price discounts. Facilities: All amenities are in the city park and your rear view mirror placard gets you into the park. One, small restroom/showers services the entire RV park (not inspected). No propane sales. No playground. Off-leash dog run. Campground: Not in a flood plain. No storm shelter available. Moderately wooded. Interior roads are narrow asphalt in good condition with tight turns; no overhead obstacles. Big rig challenging and long coaches might have maneuvering problems into some sites. No tent area, yurts, or cabins. Sites are all spacious, sufficiently level, asphalt, all back-in, mulch and some grass between. Pedestals at rear of site with electric 20/30/50; no meters. Adequate water pressure with good taste. Sewer pipe is 3" threaded, about 6" above ground level. Asphalt patios. Aging but usable picnic tables. Fire pits. Poor satellite views (forest). Free cable TV. OTA TV found 14 channels. Free Wi-Fi but I couldn't get connected. Verizon phone and 4G at 3 bars. Limited recycle bins. Noise: No railroad, aircraft, or interstate noise. Local traffic on Clemmons Road is distant. Bug Report (late August): no insects noted. Runners: CG roads good for running. Yoga: patios are plenty big enough for your mat. Conclusion: Score 8-Upscale. We camped at Tanglewood Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Go east on Clemmons Road to Lewistown-Clemmons Road for restaurants, fuel, fast food eateries, and local shops. The area between Clemmons and Winston-Salem and on to High Point is one, big, metroplex. If you can't find what you're looking for, you probably don't need it. Diesel ranges from $2.789 to $2.989, closer to the interstate.

Mayberry Campground, Mount Airy, North Carolina

Date of Stay: August, 2019 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

First Impression: Very attractive presentation, roadside and inside. This is a large and spacious campground. Safety: No concerns. Access: I-74 exit 11, south on US-601. Immediately get into the left-hand, turn-only lane, make the turn. Go past the church on the right, make a left, go straight. All roads in good condition, signs are either small or faded (hard to see at night), Garmin GPS is accurate. Office: Nice staff, token store with just a few items and a couple of RV equipment items. Credit cards accepted. Online reservations not available. My price reflects their Veterans' discount. Facilities: No pool, spa, fitness room or rec center. Small, aging laundry room. Small restrooms, one shower, curtain privacy, 80's fixtures but sufficiently clean. No propane sales. Multiple, like-new, playgrounds. No off-leash dog run. Campground: Two catch-and-release lakes but not in a flood plain. No storm shelter available. No trees. Interior roads are gravel in good condition. Some sharp turns; no overhead obstacles. Big rig friendly. Tent area, no yurts or cabins. Sites are all spacious, level, gravel, pull-in, pull-through, and back-in, nice grass between. Pedestal locations vary with electric 20/30/50; no meters. Adequate water pressure with acceptable taste. Sewer pipe is 4" threaded, about 4" above ground level. No patios; no picnic tables. Fire rings. Good satellite views. Free cable TV. Free Wi-Fi with excellent coverage and useable bandwidth. Verizon phone and 4G at 3 bars. No recycle bins. Noise: No railroad, aircraft, or traffic noise. Notable interstate noise. Bug Report (late August): no insect issues. Runners: CG roads marginal for running (loose gravel). Yoga: put mats on the grass. Conclusion: Score 7-Good. We camped at Mayberry Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Mount Airy is the home of Andy Griffith, star of "Mayberry RFD" as Sheriff Andy Taylor, along with Don Knotts as Deputy Fife. For $8/person, you can walk the quite small museum assembled in his honor. The historical downtown is a "hoot" with quaint eateries and local shops. Not really a tourist trap, just a nice, quiet place to visit. South of town, find a Walmart, Lowe's, Staples, Ruby Tuesday, IHOP, Waffle House, and Starbucks, among others. Local diesel is $2.779.

Charlottesville KOA, Charlottesville, Virginia

Date of Stay: August, 2019 - $50.00
Overall Rating:

First Impression: Very small. Not the typical, large KOA format normally seen. Neat and clean. Tucked back in the woods. Safety: No concerns. Access: from I-64, exit 121, go south on route 20 (Scottsville Rd) about 9 miles to Red Hill Road, turn right. About 1½ miles on right, huge KOA sign. Municipal and CG road in good condition, good signage, Garmin GPS is accurate. Office: Token store with snacks, trinkets, and RV equipment items. Credit cards accepted. Online reservations available. My price reflects the KOA discount. Facilities: Pool. No spa or fitness room. Game room ($). Large, clean laundry room. Exceptional restrooms/showers, quite new, clean, no mold. Propane sales. Small playground. Off-leash dog run. Campground: Not in a flood plain. No storm shelter available. Moderately wooded. Interior roads are wide, packed gravel in good condition with gentle turns and no overhead obstacles. Big rig and long coach friendly. Tent areas, one "tee-pee", a few cabins. Sites are all nearby-to-spacious, sufficiently level, grass/gravel, pull-off, pull-through, and back-in, grass between. Pedestals at rear-to-middle of site with electric 20/30/50; no meters. Adequate well-water pressure with good taste. Sewer pipe is 4" threaded, about 4" above ground level. No patios (but 2 deluxe sites get a paver patio) with usable picnic tables. Fire rings. Marginal satellite views. Free cable TV. OTA TV found about 10 clear channels. Free Wi-Fi but only 1 antenna at office, poor coverage when distant. Verizon phone and 4G at 0-1 bar. Single stream recycle dumpster. Noise: No railroad, aircraft, traffic, or interstate noise. Bug Report (mid August): no insect issues. Runners: CG roads ok for running. Yoga: no good place for your mat. Conclusion: Score 6-Nice. We camped at Charlottesville KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

A fairly easy but long drive up to Charlottesville which is a large city. Typical, national restaurant chains (Applebee's, Outback, Red Lobster, more) and the usual bevy of fast-food eateries (McD's, Wendys, KFC, Zaxby's, more). Banks, churches, auto parts stores, Lowe's, Walmart (no fuel). Diesel in the area around $2.859.

Williamsburg Campark (formerly Williamsburg Pottery Campground), Williamsburg, Virginia

Date of Stay: August, 2019 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

First Impression: Open. Very large. Manicured grass. Big pool. But sad. Manager (one man does everything) says new owner secured big loan to refurbish the CG but isn't doing so. CG sites are well maintained but buildings are dilapidated. Laundry building has no machinery. Wife reports office restroom/showers should only be used if you're desperate. In excess of 400 sites but we only counted about 8 visitors during our stay. But this CG is in a prime location and should be packed. Safety: No concerns. Access: I-64 East or West to Exit 234A, go south to next right turn, turn right again, about .1 mile and left into CG. Municipal road and CG access road in good condition. Garmin GPS is accurate. Office: For registration only. No store. Credit cards accepted. Call for reservations. My price reflects the Military/Veteran discount. Facilities: Nice, big pool. No propane sales. Multiple playgrounds. No off-leash dog run. Campground: Not in a flood plain. No storm shelter available. Both forest and meadow sites. Interior roads are narrow asphalt in fair condition with sharp turns; no overhead obstacles. Big rig and long coach friendly. Numerous tent areas but no yurts or cabins. Sites are all spacious, sufficiently level, grass, pull-through and back-in. Pedestals at middle of site. Electric varies by site; no meters. Adequate water pressure with good taste. Sewer pipe is 4" threaded, about 2" above ground level. No patios. Aged but usable picnic tables. No fire rings. Meadow sites have good satellite views. No cable TV. OTA TV found 34 channels. Free Wi-Fi. Verizon phone at 4 bars; 4G at 2 bars. No recycle bins. Noise: Distant railroad; no aircraft, traffic, or interstate noise. Bug Report (early August): no insect issues. Runners: CG roads ok for running. Yoga: Lots of room on the grass for your mat. Conclusion: Score 6-Nice (despite my previous observations). This CG has serious potential. We camped at Williamsburg Campark (formerly Williamsburg Pottery Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

The Williamsburg Campark is located within easy reach of Colonial Williamsburg, Yorktown, and historical Jamestown. National restaurant chains (Olive Garden, Red Lobster, Chilis, TGI Fridays, IHOP, more), typical fast food eateries, banks, churches, groceries, fuel. Walmart "across the highway" from the CG. Diesel in the area from $2.679 to $2.839. Pirate's Cove mini-golf, Bubba's Ice Cream Shack.

Cherrystone Family Camping & RV Resort, Cape Charles, Virginia

Date of Stay: August, 2019 - $91.00
Overall Rating:

This. Place. Is. HUGE. It's like a city unto itself. Safety: No concerns. Access: At the bottom of the Chesapeake Bay's "Eastern Shore". Get onto US-13 to Cheriton, traffic light at Townfield Road, turn west, drive to the end. Access road in fair condition, adequate signage, Garmin GPS is accurate. Office: Helpful staff, office for registration only. Credit cards accepted. Online reservations available. No price discounts. Facilities: Five pools (1 for adults only). No spa or fitness room. Game room. Well stocked General Store, café, mini-golf, volleyball, basketball court, beach area, free paddle boats on pond. Large, clean laundry room. Nice restrooms/showers, modern, clean, just a few mold spots. Propane sales. Multiple playgrounds. Off-leash dog park. Campground: Not in a flood plain. Restrooms designated as storm shelters. Sites 600-720 (where they put the big RVs) heavily wooded; others light-to-no trees. Interior roads are narrow mostly gravel or asphalt in good condition. Some interior turns quite sharp. No overhead obstacles. Big rig and long coach challenging (I bumped a parked vehicle). Multiple tent areas and many cabins. Sites vary from nearby to very close (again, the big RV area), level, grass/gravel, pull-through and back-in, open grass or forest floor between. Pedestal locations vary; electric 20/30/50; metered. Low water pressure with good taste. Sewer pipe is 4" threaded, about 4-8" above ground level (I had to dump uphill). No patios. Good picnic tables. Use fire rings. Satellite views vary. No cable TV. OTA TV found 34 channels (Norfolk-Newport News). Free Wi-Fi with adequate coverage but too many users to be useful. Verizon phone at 3 bars; 4G at 1-2 bars. Recycle aluminum only. Noise: No railroad, aircraft, traffic, or interstate noise. Bug Report (early August): no insect issues. Runners: CG roads ok for running. Yoga: mat locations may be hard to find. Conclusion: 8-Upscale. High price, lots of things to do. We camped at Cherrystone Family Camping & RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

There isn't much to do in Cheriton but just north on US-13 is Don Valerio's Mexican restaurant. Looks like a roadside dive but has great food, good prices, and killer margaritas. Drive south to Cape Charles for an "old town" feel, local eateries, ice cream shop, beach access. Diesel at Valero (on US-13, south of the CG) at $2.839.

Delaware Beaches Jellystone, Lincoln, Delaware

Date of Stay: August, 2019 - $70.00
Overall Rating:

First Impression: Not hard to find. Very attractive roadside appearance. Interior just as nice. Safety: No concerns. Access: North or south on DE-1. See the signs to DE-30? That's your clue to watch for a nicely sized, roadside sign. Turn west onto Brick Granary Road. Access road in good condition, good signage, Garmin GPS is accurate. Office: Nice store with snacks, food items, soft drinks, souvenirs, toys for the kids, and some RV equipment items. Credit cards accepted. Online reservations available. No price discounts. You have to pay-in-full before arrival to secure your spot. Facilities: Pool, no spa or fitness room. Laundry, restrooms not inspected. No propane sales. Various play areas for the children. No off-leash dog run. Campground: Not in a flood plain. No designated storm shelter. Decorative trees. Interior roads are wide dirt/gravel in good condition with gentle turns and no overhead obstacles. Big rig and long coach friendly. Tents can use RV sites. No yurts. Numerous cabins. Sites are all spacious, sufficiently level, grass/gravel, pull-through and back-in, nice grass between. Utility locations vary. Electric 20/30/50; no meters. Water bib is shared so every other site needs a very long water hose. Low water pressure with good taste. Sewer pipe is 4" threaded, about 2-4" above ground level. Some sewers designated for gray water only. No patios; usable picnic tables. Fire rings. Good satellite views. Free cable TV. Free Wi-Fi with excellent coverage but weak bandwidth. Verizon phone at 3 bars; 4G at 2 bars. No recycle bins. Noise: No railroad, aircraft, traffic, or interstate noise. Bug Report (early August): no insect issues. Runners: CG roads ok for running. Yoga: use the grass for your mat. Conclusion: Score 7-Good. IMO: overpriced. We camped at Delaware Beaches Jellystone in a Fifth Wheel.

Right around Lincoln, DE, there is nothing. Nada. Zilch. BUT, drive south towards Lewes and Rehoboth Beach and you'll find national chain restaurants, typical fast-food eateries, banks, churches, Autozone, Lowe's, Home Depot, mini-golf, the beaches, and cars, traffic, traffic, and more cars. Instead, find the Park-n-Ride lots, leave your vehicle, and take the bus. Seriously recommended. Diesel at Wawa $2.719.

Four Seasons Family Campground, Pilesgrove, New Jersey

Date of Stay: July, 2019 - $50.00
Overall Rating:

Pretty entrance. Nice road but lots of sharp speed-bumps. Large campground. Safety: No concerns. Access: We came from Annapolis across the Bay Bridge and followed US-301 into NJ to route 1 to I-95 to I-295 before starting south on US-40. GPS seemed to take the "long way" but got us there. Off US-40 on Commissioners Road, right on Woodstown-Daretown, immediate right into CG. Access road in good condition, good signage, Garmin GPS is accurate. Office: Friendly staff, nice store with snacks, food items, soft drinks, souvenirs, trinkets and toys, and RV equipment items. Credit cards accepted. Online reservations available. No price discounts. Facilities: HUGE pool and swimming lake with sand beach. No spa or fitness room. Large game room. Limited operation café. Multiple, large, clean laundry rooms but require a smart-phone app to "pay" the machines or get a FOB at the office. Multiple restrooms/showers. Inspected the one by the pool. Modern fixtures, privacy doors, "push button" water control. Some mold, very dirty floors. Propane sales. Big playground, basketball, sand volleyball. Off-leash dog park. Campground: Not in a flood plain. No designated storm shelter. Parts heavily wooded, some areas no trees at all. Interior roads are narrow, dirt/gravel (asphalt by the office) in good condition with gentle turns and no overhead obstacles. Multiple tent areas, no yurts, a few cabins. Sites are all nearby, level, dirt/gravel, pull-through and back-in, grass or forest floor between. Pedestals at rear of site with electric 20/30/50; some metered. Low water pressure with good taste. Sewer pipe is 4" threaded, about 4" above ground level (some are angled). No patios. Nice picnic tables. Use fire rings. Satellite views vary depending on site. Cable TV connection on pedestal but not tested. OTA TV found 42 channels (Philadelphia). Pay Wi-Fi at sites; free in office, laundry, pavilions. Verizon phone and 4G at 1 bar. Recycle bins. Noise: No railroad, aircraft, traffic, or interst. We camped at Four Seasons Family Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Washington DC / Capitol KOA, Millersville, Maryland

Date of Stay: July, 2019 - $70.00
Overall Rating:

First Impression: Open and spacious. Well maintained landscaping. Safety: No concerns. Access: Get to the Veterans Highway exit off I-97 (exit 10A), cross under the highway, turn left, watch for small KOA sign on right, turn onto Hog Farm Road. Follow signs. Access road in excellent condition, good signage. Garmin GPS got lost as CG mailing address isn't physical address. Office: Friendly staff, large store with snacks, food and soft drinks, RV and camping equipment items. Credit cards accepted. Online reservations available. My price reflects the KOA discount. Facilities: Nice pool, no spa, no fitness room. Small, clean laundry room with commercial machines. Nice restrooms/showers, clean, no mold. Propane sales. Playground with bounce pad. Off-leash dog park. Campground: Not in a flood plain. No storm shelter available. Lightly wooded with big trees around perimeter. Interior roads are wide, dirt/gravel and asphalt in good condition with gentle turns and no overhead obstacles. Big rig and long coach friendly. Tent areas and cabins but no yurts. Sites are all spacious, level, packed gravel, pull-through and back-in, grass between. All utilities at middle of site. Electric is ala carte (mine was 20/30A); no meters. Adequate water pressure with good taste. Sewer pipe is 4" threaded, about 2" above ground level. No patios; usable picnic tables. Fire rings. Satellite views vary but high perimeter trees. Some sites get free cable TV. OTA TV found 34 channels (Baltimore and Washington). Free Wi-Fi with excellent coverage and bandwidth. Verizon phone at 3 bars; 4G at 2 bars. Recycle bins. Noise: No railroad, aircraft, or traffic noise but US-32 behind CG is very, very loud. Bug Report (late July): no insect issues. Runners: CG roads ok for running. Yoga: grass between sites good for your mat. Conclusion: Score 6-Nice. Unfortunately, there are few CG options in the area. We camped at Washington DC / Capitol KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This CG is conveniently located between Annapolis and Baltimore so a short drive north or south will get you fast food, national restaurant chains, local eateries (Queretoro Mexican in Gambrills is excellent), the Naval Academy, rich people with ridiculously expensive yachts, churches, banks, Lowe's and Home Depot, and plenty of liquor stores (for after you get done ogling the ridiculously expensive yachts). Diesel at Wawa (south on RT-3) is $2.659.

Robin Hill RV Resort & Campground, Lenhartsville, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: July, 2019 - $70.00
Overall Rating:

First Impression: Too far out in the country for a stop-over CG. Many seasonal sites that look nice. CG buildings appear to be aged farm buildings (wood rot, deteriorating). Safety: No concerns. Access: Exit 40 off I-78, turned north on PA-787, immediate left onto Old Route 22. Right on Donat Rd, straight on Little Round Top Rd, to Robin Hill Rd that puts you in the CG. Old Route 22 in poor condition. Garmin GPS is accurate. Office: Nice store with snacks, food items, souvenirs, RV equipment items. Credit cards accepted. Online reservations available through RVontheGO. No price discounts. Facilities: Pool and big game room ($). Small, clean laundry room. Restrooms near office need restoration. They're outdated, have mold, and need a deep cleaning. The men's room smells like an outhouse. Propane sales. Multiple playground areas. No off-leash dog run. Campground: In a flood plain (stream). Wooden buildings might not survive a storm. Moderately wooded. Interior roads are narrow, dirt/gravel and asphalt in good condition with gentle turns and no overhead obstacles. Mostly seasonal sites. Big rig challenging and long coaches might have maneuvering problems. Tent areas, no yurts but cabins are available. Sites vary from close to secluded (seasonals), sufficiently level, grass/dirt/gravel, all back-in. Pedestals at middle of site with electric 20/30/50; metered for long-term. Adequate water pressure with good taste. No sewer; "FHU" means using a bladder lying on the ground. Mine was smashed - unusable. No patios; usable picnic tables. Fire rings. Marginal satellite views (trees). Free cable TV (34 channels). Tengonet Wi-Fi but limited range. Verizon phone and 4G at 1-2 bars. No recycle bins. Noise: Some CG road traffic - minimal. Bug Report (late July): biting flies. Runners: CG roads good for running. Yoga: put your mat on the grass if so inclined. Conclusion: Score 5-Acceptable. IMO: overpriced. CG charges $4 "resort fee" per day. We camped at Robin Hill RV Resort & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

New York City North / Newburgh KOA, Plattekill, New York

Date of Stay: July, 2019 - $65.00
Overall Rating:

First Impression: A bit of a drive out in the country. CG is one, big, fun park with something for all ages. Safety: No concerns. Access: Exit 7 off I-84 in New York then north on NY-300 to NY-32 north (keep going straight), 6.1 miles to Freetown Highway (rural road), turn right. Then ½ mile to the huge KOA sign. NY-32 in poor condition. Small KOA sign at Freetown Rd, Garmin GPS is accurate. Office: Super friendly staff, very large store with snacks, souvenirs, food, clothing, quite a bevy of RV equipment and camping items. Credit cards accepted. Online reservations available. My price reflects the KOA discount. Facilities: Two pools, fishing pond, horseshoes, bounce pad, mini-golf, a wine store, café. Small, very cramped laundry room. Clean, modern restrooms. Separate shower rooms, clean, no mold. Propane sales. Big playground. Off-leash dog park. Campground: Not in a flood plain. Use restrooms as a storm shelter. Moderately wooded. Interior roads are wide asphalt (some dirt/gravel) in good condition with gentle turns and no overhead obstacles. Big rig and long coach friendly. Multiple tent areas and cabins to rent. Sites are nearby-to-secluded, level, packed gravel, mostly back-in, various types of landscaping between. Pedestals at rear-to-middle of site with electric 20/30/50; no meters. Adequate water pressure with good taste. Sewer pipe is 4" threaded, about 4-6" above ground level. No patios. Usable picnic tables. Fire rings; wood in office. Marginal satellite views (trees). Free cable TV (14 channels but their satellite reception is poor, also). OTA TV found 1 channel. Free Wi-Fi with good coverage and bandwidth. Verizon phone at 1 bar. No recycle bins. Noise: Loud children at sites around the pool, quiet otherwise. Bug Report (late July): non-climbing black ants. Runners: CG roads ok for running. Yoga: no really good place to put your mat. Conclusion: Score 7-Good. Like all KOAs, they're pricey. We camped at New York City North / Newburgh KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Riverdale Farm Campsites, Clinton, Connecticut

Date of Stay: July, 2019 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

First Impression: Quite far off the beaten path. Appealing entrance. Safety: No concerns. Access: Exit 62 off I-95 in Connecticut, northwest, then immediate right onto Duck Hole Road for .3 mile, left over the river, left on Nod Road, bear left immediately onto River Road, go 1.5 miles. River Road in excellent condition, good signage, Garmin GPS is accurate. Office: Friendly staff, store with snacks, trinkets, fire wood, some food items, soft drinks, some RV equipment. Credit cards accepted. Call to reserve. My price reflects the Good Sam discount. Facilities: Swimming pond, no spa or fitness room. Game room with arcade equipment. Small, aging laundry room. CG has 4 restroom/shower buildings. Inspected 2 of them. Aging, some mold, poor lighting. No propane sales. Nice playground. No off-leash dog run. Campground: Not in a flood plain. No storm shelter available. Mix of meadow and forest. Interior roads are wide asphalt or packed gravel in good condition with gentle turns and no overhead obstacles. Mostly seasonal units, most well-maintained and nicely landscaped. Big rig and long coaches might have maneuvering problems. Tent sites and a few cabins. Sites are all nearby-to-spacious-to-secluded, level, grass/gravel, all back-in, well-mowed grass between. Pedestals at rear of site with electric 20/30/50; metered for seasonals. Adequate water pressure with good taste. Sewer pipe is 4" unthreaded, 2-4" above ground level. Some sites get concrete patios with good picnic tables. Fire rings. Good satellite views in meadow sites, none in the forest. Free cable TV. Free Wi-Fi (Tengonet). Verizon phone and 4G at 3 bars. No recycle bins. Noise: Playing children during the day - very quiet at night. Bug Report (mid July): no insect issues. Runners: CG roads good for running. Yoga: patios are plenty big enough for your mat. Conclusion: Score 6-Good. Entrance road split, incoming is nice asphalt, outgoing is gravel with axle breaking potholes. We camped at Riverdale Farm Campsites in a Fifth Wheel.

We used this CG at a launch point for a day in New York City. Drive to New Haven, catch the train to Grand Central Terminal, then the subway to Fulton Street and a short walk to the 9/11 memorial and museum. $18 entrance fee for veterans (have some form of veteran's ID).

Fishermen's State Park and Campground, Narragansett, Rhode Island

Date of Stay: July, 2019 - $55.00
Overall Rating:

First Impression: Open. Appealing. Clean. Safety: No concerns. Access: US-1 off RI-108, south. Municipal road in good condition but coming down RI-138 from RI-24 north of Portsmouth is a teeth rattling, axle twisting, gut bouncing, soul crushing experience. Stay on RI-24. Good signage to the park, Garmin GPS is accurate. Office: Friendly staff, no store. Credit cards accepted. Online reservations available. No price discounts. Facilities: No pool, spa, fitness room or rec center. No laundry room. Nice restrooms but pay showers, clean, no mold, privacy curtain only. Outside, free shower stalls to remove beach sand. No propane sales. Small playground. No off-leash dog run. Campground: Not in a flood plain. Multiple restrooms too small to protect entire CG population. Lightly wooded. Interior roads are narrow asphalt in excellent condition with gentle turns and no overhead obstacles. Big rig friendly. Long coaches should not have maneuvering problems. Separate tent area/sites near restrooms. No yurts or cabins. RV sites are nearby-to-spacious, level, asphalt, pull-through and back-in, nice site landscaping. Pedestals at rear of site with electric 20/30/50; no meters. Adequate water pressure with good taste. Sewer pipe is 4" threaded, about 4" above ground level. No patios. Aging but usable picnic tables. Fire rings available. Good satellite views. No cable TV. No Wi-Fi. Verizon phone and 4G at 3 bars. No recycle bins. Noise: None. Very quiet. Bug Report (mid July): no insect issues. Runners: CG roads excellent for running. Yoga: Put your mat on the grass if so inclined. Conclusion: Score 7-Good. My opinion: slightly overpriced, excellent beach destination but out-of-the-way as a transient CG. We camped at Fishermen's State Park and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Narragansett, RI, looks more like a large bedroom community. Ulltra-expensive houses (mansions?) on the ocean front. No national restaurant chains noted; typical fast food eateries (McD's, Burger King, Taco Bell/KFC, Starbucks). Diesel at Mobil just up from the State Park at $2.999 but more like $3.099 around town. Food at Coast Guard House (converted to a restaurant) is very good but pricey. Lots of public access beaches.

Atlantic Oaks Campground, Eastham, Massachusetts

Date of Stay: July, 2019 - $73.00
Overall Rating:

First Impression: Nice roadside appeal. Welcoming. Safety: No concerns but minimal night lighting. Access: Follow US-6 from ME-25 to Cape Cod and drive north. At the "round-about", go another 3-ish miles. CG is on the right. Municipal road in fair condition. CG access is gravel in good condition, good signage, Garmin GPS is accurate. Office: Friendly staff, token store with snacks, some food, a nice selection of RV equipment items. Credit cards accepted. Online reservations available. Good Sam discount but ask before giving your credit card number over the phone. Facilities: No pool, spa, fitness room or rec center. Clean laundry room has commercial machines. Nice restrooms. Showers are clean, modern, no mold, private rooms. Propane sales. No playground. Off-leash dog run. Campground: Not in a flood plain. No storm shelter available. Heavily wooded. Interior roads are narrow, packed gravel in fair condition (potholes) with tight turns. No overhead obstacles but I rubbed bush branches getting to my site. Big rig challenging and long coaches might have maneuvering problems. Tents can use RV sites. No yurts or cabins. Sites are all nearby, level, dirt/gravel, pull-through and back-in, no site landscaping. Pedestals at middle of site with electric 20/30/50; metered for seasonals. Adequate water pressure with good taste. Sewer pipe is 4" unthreaded, about 6" above ground level. No patios; usable picnic tables. Fires in fire rings. Poor satellite views (tall trees). Free cable TV (40+ channels). Free Wi-Fi with good coverage and bandwidth. Verizon phone and 4G at 3 bars. Recycle dumpster. Noise: None. All quiet. Bug Report (mid July): no insect issues. Runners: CG roads marginal for running. Yoga: no good place to put your mat. Conclusion: Score 5-Acceptable. IMO, seriously overpriced. We camped at Atlantic Oaks Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Cape Cod is a peninsula that will be an island someday - erosion. It consists of a number of towns and villages and hamlets scattered throughout. It's "small town". No major restaurant chains, only a few fast food eateries. Restaurants are all local but we were impressed with Fairway Restaurant & Pizzeria. A handful of gift shops. Only a few fuel stops, no RV dealers or repair shops. You go there for the beaches. Diesel in Eastham is $3.349.

Boston Minuteman Campground, Littleton, Massachusetts

Date of Stay: July, 2019 - $59.00
Overall Rating:

First Impression: Deep in the forest. Appealing entrance. Uphill, well-paved entrance road. Safety: No concerns. Access: Exit 30 off I-495 in Massachusetts (route 2A), drive west about 3 miles. Municipal road in fair condition, fair signage, Garmin GPS is accurate. Office: Token store with snacks, food, soft drinks, souvenirs, pool toys for the kids, and RV equipment items. Credit cards accepted. Online reservations available. My price reflects the Good Sam discount. Facilities: Nice pool, no spa or fitness room. Small rec center with arcade games and a ping-pong table. Small, clean laundry room. Nice restrooms, spacious showers, clean, no mold. Propane sales. Big playground. Off-leash dog run. Campground: Not in a flood plain. Use office and restrooms as storm shelters. Heavily wooded. Interior roads are narrow, packed gravel in good condition with gentle turns and no overhead obstacles. WARNING: trees line the roads, watch your turns and swing wide. Big rig challenging and long coaches will have maneuvering problems. Tents can use RV sites. Cabins available. Sites are nearby-to-generous, sufficiently level, dirt/gravel, some pull-through but mostly back-in, forest ground-cover between. A lot of pine straw. Pedestals at middle of site with electric 20/30/50; no meters. Adequate water pressure but with a brown tint (cleared by a Brita filter). Sewer pipe is 4" unthreaded, about 2-4" above ground level. No patios but with usable picnic tables. Fire rings, buy wood at office. No satellite views. Free cable TV (20+ channels). Free Wi-Fi with good coverage and bandwidth. Verizon phone at 4 bars; 4G at 1 bar. No recycle bins. Noise: None. All quiet. Bug Report (early July): no insect issues. Runners: CG roads ok for running but lots of ups-and-downs. Yoga: no good place to put your mat. Conclusion: Score 7-Good. This part of "town" has nothing around. Only groceries are at the fuel station/convenience store just at the entrance to the CG. Get onto I-495 north or south to enjoy the unbelievable traffic (interstate at 20 MPH - seriously) to locate strip malls and necessities. Diesel $3.199 (credit) or $3.099 (cash). We camped at Boston Minuteman Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
