The RV Resort at Carolina Crossroads, Roanoke Rapids, North Carolina

Date of Stay: October, 2011 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

The nightly rate we paid reflects the Good Sam Club discount. It is a Passport America park, but those rates do not apply on weekends. This is a very clean and well-maintained park with outstanding staff. Our unit required repairs from our emergency road service almost immediately after our arrival at the park. Although the service person arrived after dark, park staff had stayed to escort him to our site...and checked in on us later. The Wi-Fi is free and strong. Although bordered to the north and east by pine trees, the campground itself has no shaded areas. This is the only reason I rated it as a 9 rather than a 10. From October to late December, campers are offered a free continental breakfast from 7-9 AM, and we were told that this would be again offered for a time in the Spring. Clearly, we will return. We camped at The RV Resort at Carolina Crossroads in a Travel Trailer.

Lake City RV Resort (formerly Oaks "N" Pines), Lake City, Florida

Date of Stay: October, 2011 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

We paid the Passport America nightly rate. This is an owner-operated campground and they do so in an open, friendly, and helpful manner. The park itself is extremely well-maintained. We have stopped here multiple times and always have a pleasant experience. One note: the campground is only several hundred yards from I-10 and there is enough road noise to bother those who are very sensitive to such sounds. It has never bothered us. We camped at Lake City RV Resort (formerly Oaks "N" Pines) in a Travel Trailer.

South of the Border, Dillon, South Carolina

Date of Stay: October, 2011 - $22.00
Overall Rating:

We received a 10% AARP discount on the standard rate. The campground was built ahead of its time, but at this point is showing its age, although it is kept clean and well-maintained. Pull-through sites are virtually always available, even on busy nights. The campground and adjacent shop, restaurant, and amusement area appear to have been significantly refreshed within the past 2 years, and the quality of merchandise in the "Myrtle Beach Shop" has definitely moved up a notch from the tawdry offerings of a few years back. This is still a good and convenient overnight stop. We camped at South of the Border in a Travel Trailer.

Savannah South KOA, Richmond Hill, Georgia

Date of Stay: October, 2011 - $44.00
Overall Rating:

Park has been renovated and is much better managed than the last time we stayed some years ago. Staff was friendly, helpful, and very professional. We were escorted to our site, which was located among tall pines, as are virtually all the sites. The adjacent lake includes a bird sanctuary. We camped at Savannah South KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Beaver Valley Resort, South Charleston, Ohio

Date of Stay: August, 2011 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

I failed to do adequate research on campgrounds in the Dayton area, and as a result ended up at this over-the-hill park. Despite its listed attributes, it is a fading badly. "Overniter" sites appear to be about 12 in number, and are in an uneven grassy area adjacent to the main park. We found that our assigned spot lacked water and sewer connections, despite paying for and being assigned to a listed "full hookup" spot. We arbitrarily moved to another nearby spot which had connections (the office had closed at 4:15 PM on Saturday). The electrical box was so corroded one feared major problems; but the 30 amp receptacle worked. We were glad to leave EARLY the next AM. We will never return. We camped at Beaver Valley Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Deer Ridge Camping Resort, Richmond, Indiana

Date of Stay: August, 2011 - $16.00
Overall Rating:

We paid the Passport America member rate. We seem to stop here annually on our way westward, and again found pleasant staff, decent, well-drained grassy sites with afternoon shade, and full hook-ups at a reasonable rate. We will gladly return. We camped at Deer Ridge Camping Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Elkhart County Fairgrounds, Goshen, Indiana

Date of Stay: August, 2011 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

This is a great campground for the area. Our stay here was with a major club rally. Our several hundred members' rigs were provided working hookups as promised. The sites were clean and convenient. The Wi-Fi was strong and instant. The tracks several hundred yards away do carry frequent freight trains, but one readily adjusts to the sounds. The campground provides area maps, lists of potential destinations, and other information which really make planning and enjoying local attractions and tours a simple task. We will gladly return. We camped at Elkhart County Fairgrounds in a Travel Trailer.

Mayberry Campground, Mount Airy, North Carolina

Date of Stay: July, 2011 - $15.00
Overall Rating:

We paid the campground's Passport America member rate for full hookups. This relatively new (3+ years) park has excellent level sites on terraced areas, with many pull-throughs available. As noted, picnic tables are situated only in the pavilions. Everything was clean, modern, and easy to access with the RV. One lack is shade, for there are no trees near the campsites. Our visit included several Murphy's law situations. The cable TV connection (which was working just fine on other sites) failed at our site. Office staff provided a 75' coaxial cable to hook us to a nearby vacant location, but the resultant pictures were a bit more fuzzy than the reception others experienced. Wi-Fi signal strength was rated by our PC as "very good", but the new Wi-Fi system refused to recognize our ancient laptop to complete the connection. Through it all, park staff were unfailingly concerned and helpful. Although our score dropped a bit with the minor problems, we also realize that these were glitches unique to our experience, and were not park-wide shortcomings. We will gladly stay again. We camped at Mayberry Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Hardeeville RV, Hardeeville, South Carolina

Date of Stay: July, 2011 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

This RV park has a strange mix of attributes. The staff is friendly and helpful. Sites are level, graveled, and well-drained, and the park is clean. It is a Passport America park, which explains the listed nightly rate. But it is a no-frills park, with no showers or restrooms, programs, nor designated play areas or equipment for children. With full hookups, It obviously serves self-contained RVs. It does have a small laundry with hard-used but well-working machines. The rating assigned represents the highest possible given the features of this well-run park. It is, however, a bona fide gem for those seeking to tour the Savannah area. We camped at Hardeeville RV in a Travel Trailer.

The RV Resort at Carolina Crossroads, Roanoke Rapids, North Carolina

Date of Stay: June, 2011 - $23.00
Overall Rating:

The rate listed above was the Passport America rate (they limit PA to one night) which we paid our 1st night. We stayed a 2nd night to complete RV repairs, and paid $34 at the Good Sam rate. This is a great overnight stop for folks going north or south on I-95, or for those attending shows at the Roanoke Rapids Theater at Carolina Crossroads. It's easy to navigate the park. WiFi and Cable TV are strong and free. The absence of trees & shade cut my rating a bit, but we will certainly return. We camped at The RV Resort at Carolina Crossroads in a Travel Trailer.

Buttonwood Campground, Mifflintown, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: June, 2011 - $39.00
Overall Rating:

This campground has become the annual destination rally site for our club because of the unflagging courtesy and service of its staff and the ongoing upgrading of campsites, landscaping, and activities. It is a true destination park in a fully rural setting. We camped at Buttonwood Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Kalyumet Campground, Lucinda, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: August, 2010 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

This large campground is directly adjacent to Cook State Forest Park. The smiling, courteous staff were in an office with a small but well-equipped store. The park has clean, spacious campsites and many recreational features and programs for youth. We camped as part of a reunion group with individual reservations that arrived over a 30-hour period. All sites were next to one another and ready, as promised. We will gladly return! We camped at Kalyumet Campground in a Travel Trailer.

American Heritage RV Park, Williamsburg, Virginia

Date of Stay: June, 2010 - $44.00
Overall Rating:

The cited nightly rate for full hookups included our Good Sam discount. Although I blink at the nightly price, the prices are competitive with other nearby campgrounds. The location, campsites, and staff are equal to and mostly better than other RV park offerings in this historic area. We will gladly return. We camped at American Heritage RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Buttonwood Campground, Mifflintown, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: June, 2010 - $34.00
Overall Rating:

The cited price included our Good Sam discount. This excellent park appears to add new upgrades each year. They intend to totally rebuild the riverside sites over the coming winter season. Campground staff are invariably cheerful and helpful, and the sites are spacious and clean. Although the newest section will need another 15 years to produce much shade from the young trees, this place is a gem, and has become a pleasure to visit year after year. We camped at Buttonwood Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Ja-Mar RV Resort, South, Port Richey, Florida

Date of Stay: March, 2010 - $22.00
Overall Rating:

There are actually 2 adjacent Ja-Mar Parks. Ja-Mar North is for long-term residents. Ja-Mar South (directly on U.S.19) is the one offering overnight and short-term sites. Ja-Mar is a suburban campground, and about 80% of the sites are filled with seasonal residents. This is the type of park one visits to simply kick back and relax, or to visit local attractions in this Tampa area. It is not for those seeking country or rural atmosphere. Everything is immaculately maintained. Office staff are cheerful and helpful. We paid the Passport America nightly rate for the two weeks of our stay. A special note: Passport America nightly rates are available only for stays of 7 days or more. We camped at Ja-Mar RV Resort, South in a Travel Trailer.
