Casey KOA, Casey, Illinois

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $42.00
Overall Rating:

Nice park & people! Clean showers & rest room, but the pool needs work. Algae growing on sides of the pool, all the way around, lots of bugs floating on top, checked and filter wasn't running which explains all the bugs and leaves on the top, the skimmer wasn't getting them. Peeling paint/concrete also in the pool. There will be bugs, this is surrounded by corn fields. Have stayed here twice as an overnight stop, would go back for an overnight. Go slow, gravel road in, but in excellent condition. Easy on/off I-70. We camped at Casey KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

We've stayed here twice as an overnight stop. Only two turns and about 2 miles from I-70 exit. Don't try to find in the dark! Don't believe the road through the cornfield to the campground is lit. FYI There is nothing in walking distance and limited groceries at the campground. So plan ahead. When we do an overnight, we don't usually unhook our car, and we were okay with that.

Buckeye Lake / Columbus East KOA, Buckeye Lake, Ohio

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $47.00
Overall Rating:

Nice park & people! A lot for kids to do. (We did not have children with us) Have been here twice for overnight. Put us in one pull thru on one side of the park, couldn't reach hookups, moved us right away to the other side, no problem. Need to get organized on their pricing. Was told on a previous stay, 15% Veteran discount, called, upon check-in told it's the same as the KOA discount of 10%. Very clean! Have sites for satellite if needed. Roads were okay to navigate, and in good condition. We drive a 36 ft MH and tow a 4 DR Jeep Wrangler. Easy on/off I-70 Would stay here again. We camped at Buckeye Lake / Columbus East KOA in a Motorhome.

In walking distance is Cottage Pizza. (What would be 1-2 city blocks) They have more than pizza. Some really different types of pizza, like a BLT pizza. Salads and dinners. Not expensive, I think both times we went there our bill with 20% tip was around $30 - $35 for two, and our meals were very good.

Orange Grove RV Park, Bakersfield, California

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $41.00
Overall Rating:

We stopped her for an overnight on our way from California to Nevada. Staff was very pleasant and helpful. Pool was clean and we used it. We rarely use the pools at campgrounds, but this one was extremely well kept and was great after a day of driving. Entire park was well kept and clean. Loved parking "in the orange grove", our only disappointment was the oranges were green, we were about a month before harvest time. Once ripe the park invites you to help yourself. The sites are level, we just pulled in and hooked up. Easy in and out. It looks pretty cool, they have all of the orange trees painted white (the trunks), and really is a pretty site. We would stay here again.

I noticed a previous reviewer mentioned a problem with ants, so I asked at check-in, they said it's the time of year, just do not leave your grill or food outside overnight, we didn't, no problems. We also sprinkled Ajax around our tires. Anther reviewed mentioned noise from the highway and trains. We must have lucked out, because we had neither. We camped at Orange Grove RV Park in a Motorhome.

Marin Park, Greenbrae, California

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $84.00
Overall Rating:

This is the park to stay at if your goal is to go to San Francisco. Nothing fancy. No grass, all stone. We drive a 36 foot motorhome with 3 slides and tow a 4 door jeep and we fit. Normally need around 55 foot long, they say their sites are 50, but the way it's laid out, it worked no problem. No shade. Park road is wide and easy to get in and out of your site. Level. Electric, water were all good, no problems. Neighbors are a little close once you get in and open your slides. All that said, we would stay here again. We did not use the pool, not a super large pool, but looked clean and well taken care of. There are plenty of groceries, restaurants, etc. under 3 miles. A couple of restaurants within walking distance. The staff, all of them, were very nice and extremely helpful. We were totally lost, from the east coast and our first trip here. They provided all kinds of information. This is not the kind of park we would go to, to sit around and enjoy "the views", but again if you're going to San Francisco, best shot! We camped at Marin Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Larkspur Ferry - an easy 15 minute walk. Cost $11 each way, $5.50 for seniors. The ferry ride is about 30-45 minutes. Compare to traffic and parking fees, that ranged from $35 a day and up! Busses cars run up and down the water front, for seniors$1.00 per ride. Walking on the waterfront is flat. Many locals going to a baseball game, they also use the ferry. You hear a lot about "The Wharf", yes that was a good stop, but don't miss Pier 39! It has everything!

Granite Hill Camping Resort, Gettysburg, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: May, 2016 - $55.00
Overall Rating:

We have been going to Granite Hill since 2001, several weekends per year. They have sites for every kind of camping, tents to big rigs. You do have to watch, some sites are more level than others. Not all sites have stone, and no sites are paved. Minimal number of sites with cable available. We camp spring and fall, not summer, but they do have a pool. In the fall they have hayrides and other activities for the children. They usually have some type of entertainment for the entire family weekend nights. You can contact them to see what's on the schedule for when. They have a small cafe that offers your standard breakfast items, hot dogs and ice cream. They also have their own Put Put golf. There is a decent store at the office. This campground is huge, and most of the sites are not on top of each other. It's very family friendly. There is a decent size, clean laundry room. It's only 20 minutes to Gettysburg, and there's plenty of restaurants and wineries to visit. There are probably more people there from Maryland than PA on any given weekend. The grounds are kept clean, and if you have any issues, stop at the office and they will help get them resolved. The staff is pleasant. We enjoy this campground, which is why we go every year. We take some of our grandchildren a few weekends. It's not fancy, but a clean and decent place to be with beautiful views. We camped at Granite Hill Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

Gettysburg is 6 miles down the road; Emmitsburg MD about 20 minutes away is home to the Ott House, a family owned restaurant and bar where all the food is home made, and The National Fire Academy.

StoneyBrook RV REsort, Lehighton, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: May, 2016 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

Decent gravel roads (watch for speed bumps) throughout the campground with no low hanging tree branches. No pull thru's, but the site we had there was room to back in. I believe we were in D6 and we were in a 36 ft motorhome. They have a separate gravel spot next to the camper to pull your car in which is nice. Sites are decent size and gravel. New picnic tables. Not a lot of privacy, but a decent space between campers. Water pressure, 50 amp electric and cable all worked great. Many seasonal sites, but everyone was friendly and helpful including the staff and owner. Relaxing and quiet. Stores (yes a Walmart) and restaurants about 20 minutes in one direction, 30 minutes in opposite direction. Advise you arrive before dark. Off of a one lane road, and the mile drive up German Rd to the actual campground is dark, you're driving through mostly woods. We saw an entire herd of deer coming up German Rd in our car one evening. Would definitely go back the next time we're in the area. If they had pull thru's and had their roads finished (they're working on them, still a few rough patches) I'd have gone with a 10 rating. We camped at StoneyBrook RV REsort in a Motorhome.

Ask at the office, they have a hand out for directions to Walmart. Lots of fast food and Dunkin Donuts anywhere from 20 - 30 minutes away. Cracker Barrel about 25 minutes. A few other local restaurants we didn't get to try.
