Myre-Big Island State Park, Albert Lea, Minnesota

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

$29 per night PLUS another $7 for day (park entrance) for total of $36 for a state park with gravel roads, electricity only (water available in certain areas) and a dump station, also no WiFi is OUTRAGEOUS! We stayed at the Big Island section of the park. Sites were well separated, but the dust from passing vehicles and other RVs was awful. Restrooms were hugely outdated, and not very clean. I've stayed at many state parks, and this one by far is the most rustic and lust looked very "unkept". I use the word "unkept" as there is dead trees, branches, limbs, twig, etc. EVERYWHERE...I have never seen anything like this and wondered if it was a MN State Park thing? With all the other State Parks we have stayed at, you are lucky if you can find any "starter" wood, branches for a fire. They were always picked clean by the campers. There was a sign at the park entrance that read "No gathering of wood" (don't quote me on the exact) so based on the visual of all the surrounding campsites beings so "unkept", I assume you are not allowed to gather up twigs/branches?? - I don't know. Just very different than all the other State Parks outside of MN. we have stayed at. Aside from this, it looks to be a beautiful area to kayak, hike, or ride your bicycles. There were hundreds of Pelicans in the lake. Yes, pelicans. Dump station and water not convenient at all if you are staying at the Big Island. The area of Albert Lea was pretty and we found some people to play pickleball with! I personally would not stay here again. The pros do not out weight the cons. We camped at Myre-Big Island State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Hill's RV Park & Campground, Plankinton, South Dakota

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

Agree with many of the other reviews. Great overnight stop and very convenient - right off I-90. Honor system check-in when we arrived, but know the management periodically checks for new arrival. They do have sewer (extra $5) and we chose 50-amp with water only. Gravel roads. Easy to navigate. Big rig friendly. All sites appear to be pull-in and level. You will need an extra water hose and possibly electric cord, as connections are at the rear of the pull-through site. No picnic tables or fire rings. Did not use pool, but looked nice and clean. It's a great over night stay... there is not much if anything in the area, and we used this as a stop over on our way to Wall, SD. We camped at Hill's RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Robin Hill RV Resort & Campground, Lenhartsville, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $1.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed at this campground because we were visiting family and friends, and it's part of our Thousand Trails membership. Most of the sites are seasonal sites, many that are unkept with junk & garbage sitting around, and grass not being mowed. Sites are dirt/grass with picnic and fire ring. Some back in, some back to back, some pull through. FHU with cable. Extra for WiFi & 50 amp.

This is an old park that has not been kept up. Most of the 'transient' and week-end sites are level, back in sites, but VERY close together. During the week, this park is pretty much empty, and is very quiet. The week-ends are alot more busy, with the seasonal sites and people coming in with their dogs and riding golf carts throughout the park, disobeying the speed limits.

It's not a horrible park, but should not be advertised as a "Resort." We would stay here again. We camped at Robin Hill RV Resort & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Shenandoah Crossing Resort, Gordonsville, Virginia

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

We stayed here for two nights with Coast 2 Coast, and wish our stay was longer. Beautiful Resort, and it is definitely a resort! Our site was big rig friendly, with full concrete pad and driveway, gas grill, and outdoor kitchen, and trek patio furniture. Some sites also had hot tubs. The grounds are very nice, and well taken care of. Lots of things to do and see. Horse stables and rides, carriages, putt-putt, several hot tubs and a large swimming pool. Use of laundry washer and dryers were FREE! Great place for kids. Very friendly staff and 24-hour security gate. Loved the little town of Gordonsville. We would definetely stay here again.

Medoc Mountain State Park, Hollister, North Carolina

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

We stayed for six nights, over the Memorial Day Holiday Weekend. This is a very small park, with only 34 sites, of which only 12 have electric. Easy access to the park, and paved roads within. Sites are all gravel/dirt and seemed to be fairly level, and easy access to back in.

We were disappointed to discover there is not much to do in the area, and many whom we asked, did not have much to offer about the area. We drove to Roanoke Rapids hoping to ride our bicycles on the Roanoke Canal Trail. We had difficulty even finding the trail or anyone that knew about it or where it was at. Worst ever bicycle trail I have ever been on. We also drove up to Lake Gaston area. Huge lake, but again not much going on in that area. Little Fishing Creek that flows thru the park for canoeists was closed or not encouraged to use because of a tree that was down.

Overall, the park is nice but very small with not much to do. It was an OK stay, and I would return again if only passing through. We camped at Medoc Mountain State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

North River Campground, Shawboro, North Carolina

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $23.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed 2 nights. A hidden 'gem' found off the beaten path! What a beautiful park! All sites are around the outside perimeter of their small lake. Gravel spots with spacious concrete patio pad. Sites are in full sun but had a very nice breeze while we were there. WiFi was great. Swimming pool is a bit on the small side, but very nice. Park is very well maintained and taken care of. Nice interior roads to walk/bicycle on. We would stay here again. Cons: The 1.5 mile township road leading to the park is EXTREMELY narrow, and we were lucky to not have met another rig coming the opposite direction. There is no berm to get over without being sucked into the mud/marsh area. No fault of the campground; it's not part of their park. We camped at North River Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Camp Hatteras RV Resort & Campground, Waves, North Carolina

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $10.00
Overall Rating:

We stated 7 nights. Park is split into two sections, Sound side and Oceanside. We were on the Oceanside in the middle section. I would NOT spend the extra money to have an OCEAN view on the Oceanside....you have the same view as everyone else - - the backside of the sand dunes. The Sound side has beautiful sunsets and sites hat on the water. Paved roads. Long, level concrete pads for your rig, and also picnic area. Sites are in FULL SUN. Easy maneuver, and big rig friendly. Friendly staff. Cable $3/night. Awesome pool with a great view of the sunsets. Large community lounge. Easy access to beach. VERY VERY windy when we were there and could not extend your awning.... We would stay again. We camped at Camp Hatteras RV Resort & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed 1 night. Lots of seasonal/permanents. Park was clean and well maintained. Sites were dirt, shady, pull thru and big rig friendly. We were just passing through during the week, so really can't comment on the atmosphere when it's busy. Staff was friendly and accommodated our request to move to a "true" pull in site.

Goose Creek RV & Camping Resort, Newport, North Carolina

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $1.00
Overall Rating:

Stayed 9 nights. Paved roads. Grass sites next to their ponds. Not many RVs in the "camping area" for transients during our stay. I'd guess 90% of the park is park models, double wides, and "seasonal RVs", many of whom use these as their "beach & fishing" getaways. Weekends were very busy with influx of seasonals and I'm guessing it's much worse during the summer months. The swimming pool was closed during our visit. Sites are very close and full sun. Big rig friendly. Most of our time was spent exploring, so this was an OK stay for us and would stay again, but not during peak season. We camped at Goose Creek RV & Camping Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Cypress Camping Resort, Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $10.00
Overall Rating:

VERY nice park on the inter coastal waterway in Socastee where you could watch the boats pass by. Nice fishing pier. Community fire pit located near the waterway. Gravel roads. Sites included concrete pad w/table. Sites are spacious and with plenty of room to put out slides & awning. Sites are level and easy in/out. No issues with trees. We stayed in Site 72. All sites are big rig friendly, pull thru with FHU. We were able to get local channels/network stations using our antenna. Nice size swimming pool, and appeared clean. Laundry facilities on site, and worked well. Staff friendly and helpful. Park is clean and quiet. There are a few 'seasonal' sites that were located at the far end and some could be cleaned up a bit. We camped here for 7 nights and would stay here again. We camped at Cypress Camping Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Lake Aire RV Park & Campground, Hollywood, South Carolina

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

Gravel roads. Sites with grass areas, table and fire ring. Sites are close, but had plenty of room to put out slides & awning, but would be concerned with open fires with awnings. Sites are level and easy in/out. No issues with trees. We stayed in Site D3. It was a bit muddy because of the rain, and see that some of these sites have more gravel then others. Mostly big rig pull thru with FHU. N0 cable, but was able to get local channels/network stations. No game room or club house. Nice small swimming pool, fishing pond, playground, laundry and picnic pavilion. No scheduled activities. Staff friendly and helpful. We camped here for 5 days using PPA discount @ $19/night for "basic" site, which includes 30 amp & water. Add $5.oo for ALL sites with electric. Add $3.00 to upgrade to 50 amp. Add $3.00 for sewer hookup Add the SC Sale & Accommodation Tax of 11.5%. Total per night = $35.84 Did not use Wi-fi. Good cell coverage with AT&T. Park seems very quite and well maintained. We stayed for 5 nights in a 40' 5th wheel. We chose this park because of it's proximity to Charleston and would stay here again. We camped at Lake Aire RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Golden Isles Vacation Park, Brunswick, Georgia

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

Stayed 1 night in a 40' 5th wheel. Easy on/off from I-95. Dirt roads within the park, and was extremely muddy/wet from recent rains. Appears to be an old park. Pull thru sites for over night stays are close, but large enough to put slides and awning out. We did not venture out around the park, so can not provide many details. OK value for over night stop and would stay again for a night. We camped at Golden Isles Vacation Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed 3 nights. Did not venture out/explore the area much as we were traveling through on our way to Florida. Owners were super friendly and extremely accommodating and attentive to the RV community. Brand new restrooms/showers. Community fire pit for evening gatherings. We did not use the swimming pool, but it looked clean. Owner loves to play pickle ball and had just recently constructed a new court. Campground was clean and well maintained. Gravel roads. Sites are very close seemed to be all pull in, and big rig friendly. No cable. Some sites had concrete pads. Park is convenient to I-95 and easy on/off.

Majestic Oaks (55+ park), Zephyrhills, Florida

Date of Stay: March, 2018 - $23.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed for 1 month for $675 which included water, septic, electric, cable, and garbage. This is 55+ community with a mixture of park models and RV's. The lots for RV's are VERY spacious and wide open with sun, and have a large concrete pad ( @50' long) at all sites. The roads within the park are paved, and are greatly used to walk or bicycle within the park. VERY clean and maintained.

Unlimited activities with tennis courts, horseshoes, pickle ball, shuffle board, community building and game room. On site laundry. Numerous daily activities with cards, poker, bingo, etc. and game nights. Swimming pool was clean. Residents and others were super friendly, and I would definitely recommend this park for long or short term stay.

Park is big rig friendly. Roads are well marked and easily manuverable.

Only negative is there is a cement plant that is at the one end of the park. VERY NOISY during the day and into evening. (They must have a 2nd shift working there.) LOTS of dust/sand from it: but it was tolerable and still could enjoy being outside.

Park empties out in early April with snowbirds heading out. We camped at Majestic Oaks (55+ park) in a Fifth Wheel.
