Pine Mountain RV Park, Pigeon Forge, Tennessee

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $48.00
Overall Rating:

What a delightful place to stay! We had not been to Smoky Mountain National Park in many years and decided to make a trip early this summer (May 2018). There are several parks in the area and choosing was somewhat difficult. We are very glad to have found Pine Mountain RV Park and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The park is very clean, appears to be quite new, has a fantastic location, is easy to find and navigate through, and has a nice list of amenities. As a home base to explore the national park, Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg we could not have asked for better. We also appreciated the fact that while the location is convenient it is just far enough (perhaps 1/4 mile) off of the main roadway that it was very calm, peaceful, and quiet. All welcome after a day of bustle and tourist traffic. We camped at Pine Mountain RV Park in a Motorhome.

So much to do in the area. We loved hiking in Smoky Mountain National Park. Some of the best hikes we have done in the eastern US. Make sure to do the Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail. A beautiful and exciting driving tour through the park. Very scenic and relaxing.

Andover / Pymatuning Lake KOA, Williamsfield, Ohio

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $15.00
Overall Rating:

This resort is now part of the KOA system and is found as Andover/Pymatuning Lake KOA on their site. While the Pymatuning Adventure Resort sign still remains it is dwarfed by the new KOA signage and other markings. As other reviews have mentioned there were once far more amenities at the resort (water park, two pools, tennis, etc.). Most of these have been removed and what remains is very basic. The outdoor pool is rather small and situated poorly on the property. All of the buildings and facilities have a very worn out and "has been" feel to them. Our biggest complaint is however the absolutely horrible condition of the roads and sites. In fact, "sites" is a generous term. Each spot is really just a path worn into the grass with some very sparse remnants of gravel. The streets are extremely narrow - just barely wide enough for two passenger vehicles to pass one another. The driveways into the sites are shockingly slim and are bordered by 8-12" deep drainage ditches on both sides. Our site was shamefully unlevel. It took all of the pads, blocks and other leveling equipment we could muster to get even close to level. As there is no real support underneath there was also significant settling over the course of our two day stay. Others have mentioned that the power pedestals and water connections are shared between four sites. We had more than a 35' reach to get to power and water. Thankfully we consulted this site before arriving and had spare water hose and electrical cable aboard. Without these we would have been unable to connect. While we hope that the new relationship with KOA will help improve the conditions at this park, it will likely take significant time and large sums of money to bring this tired, too long neglected park back up to some reasonable standard of comfort and accessibility. We sadly cannot recommend it and would very strongly suggest you consider staying elsewhere. We camped at Andover / Pymatuning Lake KOA in a Motorhome.

Pontoon boat rentals are available very close by. We visited Pymatuning Boat Livery and rented a 29' boat for half a day. It was a fun way to see the lake and to spend an afternoon on the water. Restaurants in the area are virtually nonexistent.

Hilton Head Island Motorcoach Resort, Hilton Head Island, South Carolina

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $80.00
Overall Rating:

We were sorely disappointed. With fairly high ratings from this site as well as others we expected a true world-class motorcoach resort. We will try to be fair but frankly we are aghast at what we found here. In terms of the positives, the location is very good, the pool and tennis areas are indeed excellent, and the staff is very helpful. That's about it. Now the negatives. First of all there are many (many!) very old coaches. Some were ready for the scrap heap. No kidding. We do not mean a few years old, we mean a few decades old. A number were so surrounded by sculpture, tiki huts, flags, signs, old metal furniture, lawn ornaments and other forms of adornment we seriously doubt they will ever move again. Once more in fairness, a reasonable number (maybe 1/4) of the sites have indeed been improved and several are quite nice. These are the exception not the rule. As we walked the grounds we observed that most of the parking pads are breaking up and most require complete replacement. All of the sites felt far too small for today's larger class A's and they are very, very close together. Many are separated by just one thin margin of grass or shrubbery. This gave the park a cluttered, claustrophobic feel. Oh yeah, the "lake" is not really a lake. It's a retention pond - more appropriate for catching runoff from rain than something that adds true beauty to the park. To be candid the overall feel is more mobile home park than motorcoach resort. Lastly, even during the high season the park was only partially full and many sites are for sale. Not a good omen. There is such potential here but no sign at all that improvements are planned or in the works. It is truly a shame as Hilton Head has been one of our favorite vacation spots for more than 15 years. We had high hopes for the HHI Motorcoach Resort but sadly they were dashed. We will not return. We camped at Hilton Head Island Motorcoach Resort in a Motorhome.

The Virginian Lodge RV Resort, Jackson, Wyoming

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $102.00
Overall Rating:

If it were not for the very high price we would probably have felt a little better about our stay at The Virginian. It is conveniently located just outside of the downtown area of Jackson Hole, the sites are reasonably nice, and the staff was efficient and helpful. For over $100 per might however we expected a little more. As others have stated they are sadly the only RV park in town and charge accordingly. The free shuttle to downtown, the ability to walk to several area restaurants (including one right at the adjoining hotel), and the ease of access help salve the wound but we still felt a little resentful of the cost. Overall its a "5" - nothing much to distinguish it on the plus side but not bad either. We camped at The Virginian Lodge RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The Gun Barrell Steakhouse is a 2 minute walk across the plaza. A great place for lunch or dinner. There is also a full-service grocery store just up the street - handy to replenish supplies before heading north to Grand Teton or Yellowstone. Downtown Jackson is fun but has strayed from its conservative roots.

Sugar Bottom COE, Solon, Iowa

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $26.00
Overall Rating:

There is a lot more to this campground and surrounding area than we imagined! We only were able to stay one night as we drove through Iowa on our way home to Ohio. Had we known about all there is to do we would have stayed longer! The campground is just one part of a large waterway and park complex. The waterfront, beach, boating areas and overall area gave things a real resort feel. Our site, which included full hook-ups and 50amp service, was easy to find and easy to access. The park was very full and there was a lot going on with groups and families but things settled down in the evening and it was very quiet overnight. Overall a very nice stay and one we would gladly repeat. We camped at Sugar Bottom COE in a Motorhome.

Jellystone Park Camp Resort at Sioux Falls, Brandon, South Dakota

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $69.00
Overall Rating:

This was our first stay at a Jellystone Park and if they are all like this it will be our last. We actually have very little good to say. What makes this painful is the campground actually has a lot of potential. Upon arrival we immediately felt uneasy as there are no signs indicating where to park. The resulted in a mish-mash of arriving RV's, departing traffic, golf carts and bicycles and pedestrians going in all directions. The staff was curt and somewhat surly - not at all the welcome we expected. The concrete Yogi standing outside was more friendly. They did escort us to our site and the young man was very helpful and pleasant. The campground is right on the interstate - convenient but very noisy. The sites are closer than close to one another. Keep those blinds down unless you wish to have onlookers. If they would invest in some gravel to level the sites and pave the roads that would be a huge improvement. The entire property was horribly dusty and within hours our whole rig was covered with a coating of red grime. The power pedestals, water connections and sewer connections all felt over-used and worn out. Upon departure we thought we were on a one way street when indeed it was at one time two-way. The unpruned trees have been allowed to become so overgrown that they have consumed an entire lane. The overall demeanor and appearance of this park gave us the sense that the place is being bled dry and that no one any longer cares. We camped at Jellystone Park Camp Resort at Sioux Falls in a Motorhome.

Firehole Canyon, Rock Springs, Wyoming

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $49.00
Overall Rating:

We are saddened by one fact - we may never find a campsite more beautiful than Firehole Canyon. Neither words nor pictures can describe how gorgeous this place is! We took photo after photo and still did not feel like we captured the magic of the surroundings. While a bit off the beaten path the campground is easy to find, the roads paved and well-marked, the hills and valleys manageable. We were uncertain if our 36' Class A would have difficulty traversing the route but it was no issue at all. We were greeted by the camp host and he was very helpful and welcoming. Our site was reasonably level and nicely equipped with a fire ring and a small shelter which included a picnic table. There is a dump station and potable water at the entrance to the campground. We camped at Firehole Canyon in a Motorhome.

Sitting Bull Campground (Bighorn Natl Forest), Ten Sleep, Wyoming

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $26.00
Overall Rating:

If you have the courage to venture off the beaten path just a little this treasure awaits! Sitting Bull is one of the most scenic campgrounds we have visited. The drive to and from is beautiful and well worth the time. We were uncertain if we would feel comfortable making the drive in a 36' Class A but it turned out to be no trouble. The sites are well-maintained, reasonably level, nicely spaced, private and all come with the spectacular views you only get in the mountains. We camped at Sitting Bull Campground (Bighorn Natl Forest) in a Motorhome.

Elkhorn Ridge RV Resort & Cabins, Spearfish, South Dakota

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $82.00
Overall Rating:

Elkhorn Ridge is a first class RV resort in every respect. We sadly only got to stay one night as we were traveling home from a three week trip to the area national parks. If we had known just how nice a resort this is we would have stayed much longer! The park is easy to find and conveniently located near the interstate. The entrance is more than a mile from the highway so road noise, while present, is very tolerable. The property is beautifully laid out and lushly landscaped. The roads are all paved and the sites are concrete. Everything still looks brand new and works accordingly. The swimming pool area and the two hot tubs were fantastic - just what we needed after a day of driving. The on-site store was well stocked and even had a nice wine selection! Initially we had intended to stay at the Spearfish City Campground as it is rumored to have nice riverside sites but the process of making reservations was so cumbersome. We are glad things worked out as they did since we got to stay at Elkhorn Ridge. It truly is a "destination resort" and worthy of its high marks. We camped at Elkhorn Ridge RV Resort & Cabins in a Motorhome.

Hocking Hills State Park, Logan, Ohio

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

We made our first trip to Hocking Hills and the adjoining state park over Easter weekend. While the area and the natural features are indeed very impressive the campground is significantly less so. We have stayed at quite a number of the Ohio state parks and Hocking Hills ranks among our least favorite. With that said we would stay again only because we loved the park. The hiking and natural beauty is unmatched in Ohio and rivals some of what you will find in more well known parts of the country. We camped at Hocking Hills State Park in a Motorhome.

Cherry Hill Park (Washington DC), College Park, Maryland

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $78.00
Overall Rating:

After Hurricane Matthew forced us to change plans last minute we were a little afraid our autumn vacation would be a bust. At the last minute we decided to take a trip to Williamsburg, VA and needed a place to stop for the night on our way down. We found Cherry Hill online and decided to give it a try. We are so happy we did! In fact, we enjoyed the campground so much, we extended our vacation and stayed a couple of extra days here on our trip back home. As advertised the campground is very conveniently located near Washington, DC. The Metro bus stops on the grounds and quickly delivers you to a nearby subway station where you can catch a train right into downtown DC. For this reason alone it is a great place to stay. The grounds were well-manicured, the RV stop amazing (better than the one where we purchased our motorhome), the staff very friendly and helpful and the choice of activities very imaginative and plentiful. We are looking forward to a return trip next summer so we can try the pools and the other outdoor amenities. We camped at Cherry Hill Park (Washington DC) in a Motorhome.

Alum Creek State Park, Delaware, Ohio

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

Alum Creek is generally fine and would is fine for a basic, no frills, state park stay. We visited over a moderately busy weekend and found the check in the be efficient, the park generally clean, and the sites to be well laid out. We did enjoy being in a "premium" site which offered a bit more privacy and room to spread out. Even the non-premium sites were not too cramped and seemed to be adequate.

There were campground host sites labeled but we never saw anyone outside or helping out with park maintenance or other duties. In addition we heard noise from several campsites late at night while walking the dog and no one seemed to be around to enforce the quiet hours or to say anything to the campers. Ideally this would be a ranger or security guard but we have seen hosts try to help out with friendly reminders.

The bathrooms were OK but are getting a little long in the tooth. Perhaps time to pony up some state funds for replacements. They were in need of a good cleaning - they were not disgusting but just not quite as well-maintained as we would have hoped.

We did have one complaint. In an effort to abide by the firewood restrictions most states have we try to buy wood on site. For $5 per bundle we got five thin pieces of slab wood that were FILLED with black ants. The wood was wet and dirty as well. Compared to what we have seen from other Ohio parks this was a big disappointment.

One other thing we would suggest is to regrade and replant the grassy areas next to the site pads. Ours was eroded and basically all dirt and gravel. We've seen better. We camped at Alum Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

Maumee Bay State Park, Oregon, Ohio

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

We decided to take a last-minute trip to Maumee Bay State Park to check out the campground and other park facilities in anticipation of an extended stay next summer. The campground only offers electric sites - no full hook-ups. This is our one and only (minor) issue. Otherwise our stay was perfect. Each site has its own park-like setting with plenty of grass, trees and space between. The sites all appeared to be level, expertly maintained and welcoming. Each area had an active camp host and we were greeted by several on walks and while bike riding. The bathrooms and showers were clean and centrally located. We would definitely recommend this campground and look forward to our next stay! We camped at Maumee Bay State Park in a Motorhome.
