Winhall Brook COE, South Londonderry, Vermont

Date of Stay: September, 2019 - $13.00
Overall Rating:

Everything about this park was outstanding, restrooms and showers were though dated were impeccably maintained and cleaned. Most sites were roomy and easy to access. The dump station is on the south side across a narrow bridge. I saw several large rigs cross the bridge but it takes some planning. The host will explain the best method to cross when you register. All electric/water sites are on the south side. If coming from the south on Route 30 I recommend going to South Londonderry to join Route 100 south to the campground and not taking any shortcuts your GPS may offer. We camped at Winhall Brook COE in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

The only interior road problem was the bridge which is not a problem if you listen carefully to the instructions when you register. Visit the Merck Farm in West Rupert, Vermont (about 40 minutes) it's free and an excellent place to walk and see farm animals in a real farm not a petting zoo.

Jigger Johnson Campground - White Mountain National Forest, Conway, New Hampshire

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $12.00
Overall Rating:

This is an update to last years review. This is still one of our favorite parks but the forest service has decided that for the health of the forest the trees needed to be thinned. The forest thinning has destroyed all privacy in many of the best sites in this campground. Additionally the service of the concessionaire, Pro-Sports, has deteriorated considerably. While the new showers and bathrooms are kept spotless clean the old bathrooms are not cleaned or maintained well. We camped at Jigger Johnson Campground - White Mountain National Forest in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

There are no dump stations at any of the WMNF campgrounds on the Kangamangus Highway. The Mobil station on route 112 in Lincoln, NH has an adequate dump station for $10 and they are very helpful, also we used the Gorham, NH waste facility also fo $10.

Franconia Notch State Park, Lafayette Place Campground, Franconia, New Hampshire

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

In the heart on Franconia Notch with numerous hiking trails leaving from the campground. No water or electric at campsites, no dump station at campground. There is some road noise. Some campsites are difficult to get into and level. All the negatives don't dent the beauty and character of this location. Why a 10 rating? Because I just loved it here. I would call the campsite directly before making a reservation and describe your camper, they can suggest sites that might work. The staff is extremely helpful.

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed 3 nights in site #19 on the Penobscot River this is an older campground being restored by new owners. The sites vary from level an private to more challenging and open. We like the river sites even though they can be difficult to get level,The owners are extremely helpful and will go out of their way to see that you have a good time. We would stay here again.

Our site 38 was not level but manageable with 30 amp electric, water spigots are available through out the park. Staff was extemely helpful and park was clean.

Schoodic Woods Campground, Winter Harbor, Maine

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $14.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed in site A-38 which was a back-in with plenty of privacy and spacious. Loop A has 20 amp service and water spigots around the camping area. This is an outstanding park only 3 years old and they did everything right except one thing, NO SHOWERS. All sites are level and spacious I did not see a bad site in loop A. Loop A also has some beautiful walk in tent sites. Loop B is all pull throughs and has 50 amp electric and water at sites. As I said in my review last year Schoodic Woods is the alter ego of the Bar Harbor side of Acadia NP, quiet and laid back. Not to disparage The Mount Desert Island part of the park we love visiting there but it is a totally different experience. Which ever part of Acadia NP you choose bring you bicycle for great a riding experience. We camped at Schoodic Woods Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Nickerson State Park, Brewster, Massachusetts

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $22.00
Overall Rating:

Stayed in site 069, this is a great state park in the heart of Cape Cod. Their are bike paths in the park and the 20 or so mile Cape Cod Rail Trail can be accessed directly from the park, in addition their are several kettle ponds for swimming and small boats. This park is almost always full in season I recommend reservations ASAP. We camped at Nickerson State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Lake Francis State Park, Pittsburg, New Hampshire

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

The Rate is a guess as I do not remember. This was the second year we did a late fall stay at this park just a few miles from the Canadian border. The W/E sights are in the open but spacious and some are along the river where it enters Lake Francis. The sights without W/E are dispersed and wooded and offer varying degrees of privacy. For tent campers there are some excellent walk in sites with tent platforms. Everyone should be able to find a nice site at this campground. Staff is helpful and available but not intrusive. We camped at Lake Francis State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Jigger Johnson Campground - White Mountain National Forest, Conway, New Hampshire

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $12.00
Overall Rating:

This is our second year at this campground for fall camping. We really like this campground great site privacy, location, easy back in sites and the new showers are nice. This is dry camping water is available at spigots throughout the park but no hookups. The only negative is the lack of a dump station. We stopped at several campgrounds to see if we could pay to dump but they all said that New Hampshire has told them only people staying at the campground can be allowed to dump. I have no idea if this is true but the response was consistent. We ended up bringing it to our local RV dealer when we got home. We camped at Jigger Johnson Campground - White Mountain National Forest in a Travel Trailer.

Salmon Lake State Park, Seeley Lake, Montana

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $34.00
Overall Rating:

This was an overnight enroute to Glacier NP. The campground is on beautiful Salmon Lake and has 2 small sections a few of the sites could accommodate the larger rigs but it could be tight getting in and out of most sites in my opinion. The hostess was extremely helpful with information and tips for things to do. I wish I could have stayed longer. We camped at Salmon Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Congdon Creek Campground (Yukon Government), Destruction Bay, Yukon

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

We really liked this campground, it is on the ALCAN at Destruction Bay, Kluane Lake. Very large, private campsites, dry camping and inexpensive. Just a really pretty area. When traveling the ALCAN let's face it the commercial sites leave a lot to be desired. We found the Yukon Provincial Parks great for an overnight or longer stay. It is interesting that the tenting area is enclosed in a 5' high 50,000 volt electric fence. Got Bears, you better believe it. The one drawback to most of the Provincial Parks in the Yukon and BC is no dump stations. We camped at Congdon Creek Campground (Yukon Government) in a Travel Trailer.
