Lobster Buoy Campsite, South Thomaston, Maine

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $37.00
Overall Rating:

I saw one other review that would almost match my feelings. The view and weather are extremely nice. The showers and bathrooms are clean, but no hand drying and no soap and the showers are pay .50 or more and extremely small and the toilets are too small too, but everything is clean. What made our stay worthwhile was the view and the tides. We camped here one week and always used the facilities. As one other camper said, the rules are many, but the owners are nice. Some people come back every year to the same spot. Can only stay two weeks at a time. Probably cheaper then most places on the ocean, but it should be as I've mentioned. No place to ride a bicycle as the beaches are all rocky and I didn't even get my FAT tire bike out of the truck. We camped at Lobster Buoy Campsite in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

We both loved the 2 hour sailboat ride in Camden on the Olag. We took a boat to Monhegan Island and it was OK, but not great fun. Maine makes a lot of their income from tourism. are want to eat lobster, find a place on the docks where you can buy several wholesale, about half price, steel bucket to cook the lobster. Don't forget your passports if you want to venture farther north into Canada and Nova Scotia.

Natchez Trace Thousand Trails NACO, Hohenwald, Tennessee

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

Stayed with the Oliver Rally with about 35 other trailer owners. Found the whole grounds needed some TLC. Showers were ok, but not convenient to use. My water spicket at campsite leaked badly. Electric was hard to reach because of too far back from camp slip so had to move trailer closer to electric post on #15A. We got a large group discount of 20% supposedly, but the office could never figure out my true price. Paid $54 then $20+ for a third day, then $5.73 when I entered the campground even though my paper said Refund! Then they wanted $5.71 more to complete my 3 night package including taxes. I didn't ever pay the last one as the new gal on duty had not been left any notes. I spent too much time in the office trying to satisfy them. This campground is owned by a corporation (Thousand Trails) with headquarters in Chicago. Roads have been repaired somewhat, need more work. Not too bad. It rained the first night and day we were there adding to the inconvenience. My main point is camping should be a straight forward affair. Reserve, pay, camp, leave. Don't waste my time and give me my money's worth. This campground wasted my time and even though we had a good time it was because of the Oliver Travel Trailer Company, not the campgrounds. I'm pretty new camper, but asked some professional and expert campers and found they agreed that the campground on a 10 scale was a 2 or 3, very poor comparatively speaking. Sure the absence of local TV and lack of Wi-Fi added to it's being out of touch with the modern camper. I loved the hills and hollers and the campground employees were very nice. This campground has great potential. Hope it works out for them. We camped at Natchez Trace Thousand Trails NACO in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

We stayed in the campground mostly. Went to Walmart about 14 miles away. Some nice restaurants in Hohenwald. I know the campground has a store and there is a country store a few miles down the road. We did not visit either store.
