Croton Point Park, Croton on Hudson, New York

Date of Stay: September, 2013 - $50.00
Overall Rating:

This is a county park (not state, as other review indicated). Attendants were very friendly and helpful; reservation must be by phone or in person. Main difficulty in getting here is US-9 -- 8 miles of transit from I-87, through several towns with narrow, double lanes and 30mph speed control. The MNR station is two miles from campsites, so noise is minimal; this is a great location for NYC access -- takes 50-60 mins (depending on which train you get). Full hook-ups are $50 per day; $240 for a week-long stay (5-7 days is same cost), makes it $35/day --- nice option. We camped at Croton Point Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Herring Cove Provincial Park, Campobello Island, New Brunswick

Date of Stay: August, 2013 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

Senior rate is $25 plus tax (if over age 65), regardless of citizenship. Large, open field allowed USA satellite reception (for us); excellent location for visiting all Campobello attractions. Other favorable comments match our more recent visit -- nice venue and most pleasant staff. We camped at Herring Cove Provincial Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Ponderosa Pines Family Campground, Hopewell Cape, New Brunswick

Date of Stay: August, 2013 - $46.00
Overall Rating:

Ditto what others have said: great location (for visiting Hopewell Rocks) and large sites (in the rear) have pleasant water-view and many have USA satellite reception. Our $46 rate was based on 30 amp service; 50 amp service was quoted at $55. We camped at Ponderosa Pines Family Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Wendover Nugget RV Park, Wendover, Nevada

Date of Stay: July, 2012 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

Off the highway (translate: QUIET). FREE for our one-night (if you look old or wear a vet's cap). Could be cleaner if the pet owners would pick up their pet's waste. Maybe they need a dispenser, but we think pet owners should have better manners than just leave their pet's waste behind in the rocks where folks might walk to get to the casino! Our 63' rig fit just fine. AND, the casino (very new) is amazing/gorgeous/etc. We will do breakfast in the morning. Like all things Nevada, they have excellent meal specials. We camped at Wendover Nugget RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Eagle Ridge RV Park, Eagleville, Missouri

Date of Stay: June, 2011 - $27.00
Overall Rating:

$27.27 for EWS with 50amp service and Good Sam (10%) discount; cash or check, only. Okay with us! Old, somewhat dilapidated farm-town facility, being refurbished my new, younger owners. They aim to please, plan to join Escapees next season (good plan!), as lots of SKP's have advised them they look for SKP parks first! Great owners, reasonable (though "lumpy") access for any sized rig: ours is 61' bumper-to-bumper. Quiet, safe place away from the freeway: only a half-mile but separated by farm fields and trees. We camped at Eagle Ridge RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Bob Shetler Campground COE, Johnston, Iowa

Date of Stay: June, 2011 - $22.00
Overall Rating:

New sections have best big-rig access. T & L loops in the Tail Water West and East sections, respectively. Great COE facility with THREE campground areas. The Dam Complex has FIVE major loops, plus Sandy Beach and Sugar Bottom. All told, there are well over 300 sites, AND at least 25% are saved for first-come, first-served (off the reservation system). They honor the senior-pass (aka, Golden Age Passport) for half-price camping! We camped at Bob Shetler Campground COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Salt Lake City KOA, Salt Lake City, Utah

Date of Stay: May, 2011 - $42.00
Overall Rating:

Highly priced, but accept most discount cards, so was a great place to be for a couple days. Well maintained facilities in every way! Don't like the price, but tolerate it because it's so close to every thing you'd want to do in this town! Site sizes are not measured properly. We are just under 60' if stay hooked up. The first site assigned was supposed to be 62', but was more like 55'. We moved to a (truly) 65' site after we discovered we could not get satellite reception (due to tree obstruction). We camped at Salt Lake City KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Burnidge Forest Preserve, Paul Wolff Campground, Elgin, Illinois

Date of Stay: May, 2011 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

Excellent, close-in location for Chicago (use Metra train to visit the city); even better for visiting cousin in Elgin! Nice, open sites with plenty of room to relax and not bother nearby neighbors. ONLY draw-back is not all sites have water -- so, check closely if you want water hookups; in most sites, you can reach adjacent site's water hookup with a 60' or 75' hose. We had two day's worth of water, so didn't bother; next time, we'll be more careful to select a site with adjacent water hookup. Other drawback is lack of sewer, so either conserve or bring a "blue boy" to dump if staying more than a couple days. We camped at Burnidge Forest Preserve, Paul Wolff Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Shipshewana Trading Place RV Park, Shipshewana, Indiana

Date of Stay: May, 2011 - $33.00
Overall Rating:

We opted for the boondock area, as we are self-contained and just wanted a safe place to sleep overnight. Gentleman in the front-office was most helpful, guiding us to the location and inviting us to stay either in the full-service park ($33 for pull-through), or boondock area for free. We will visit (and pay) the Flea Market vendors in the morning. This place is clean, the developed sites are pretty level, so easy to stay "connected" for a pass-through visit. We have a large fifth wheel and large truck for TV; they accommodate any size RV. We camped at Shipshewana Trading Place RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

McCloud RV Resort, McCloud, California

Date of Stay: August, 2009 - $31.00
Overall Rating:

Wi-Fi was weak, at times; I just switched to my air card. It was much faster, so I stuck with it. We had 30 amp service on a lightly-loaded circuit, so we could run BOTH A/C units; our travel friends two sites away, on a different circuit, avoided all other electrical draws and still could only run one A/C. They were a bit more friendly, this year. Two years ago, they were quite unfriendly (not rude, just busk). They raised our rate from $21 to $31, although they originally agreed to freeze the 2007 rate (for our 2008 reservation). Due to my health incident in Ohio, we rolled over the reservation to 2009; price rose 50%, so decided to stay only 5 nights, instead of 7 that had been pre-paid in 2007. $155.xx for 5 nights, vs. $121.xx for six nights (pay for 6, 7th night is free). They still owe me $10 refund for the unused days on original reservation. Sites near the hwy get to hear noisy logging trucks all day, some at night. Away from the hwy it's less noisy. Like many parks, they charge a fee for visitors. (Unless you persuade they're not visiting: rather drop-off/pick-up stuff or camper, only. Not using the facility.) Wanted to charge our non-camping friends to use a picnic table for lunch (they just left the park, instead). Despite the fee hike, we will probably stay here next time. Our purpose was to attend week-long dance event at Dance Country, it's so close: walking distance to the dance hall! We camped at McCloud RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Heritage RV Park, Corning, California

Date of Stay: August, 2009 - $14.00
Overall Rating:

Passport America accepted for 1 or 2 nights; we stayed going and returning from McCloud. A very nice surprise, since our travel friends picked the place not knowing PA was accepted. Cash only for the PA price. The park has a nice walk-path to cross a main drag en route to the Olive Pit store: which also had a great burger and breakfast-sandwich menu. Also tried roach-coach BBQ (but it was over-cooked, like jerky); wish we'd tried the Mexican place, instead. Pull-through sites are long and narrow. My 60' combo needed large swing room to get in from a narrow road, so had to pick a site with wide access from the opposite side of that narrow entry road. Exiting onto a much-wider center aisle was no problem. We camped at Heritage RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Big Sandy Campground, Swanton, Ohio

Date of Stay: July, 2009 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

Very accommodating owners; son & dw-in-law taking over from dad (hopefully). Seasonal, daily or weekly rates: pay for 6, get 7th night free. High water table means you cannot use sewer dump after recent rains: gotta wait a couple days for the septic system to catch up. Very pleasant place, large sites out front, easy access for large rigs. We camped at Big Sandy Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
