Hickory Hollow Campground, Utica, Illinois

Date of Stay: July, 2005 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

My first impression was very nice. The access road is gravel and a bit dusty but in very good shape. The office staff was very friendly and check in went smooth. The interior roads are also gravel and very drivable. The sites are grass and ours was a large pull through with full hookups and 50 amps service. Leveling was no problem at all and the site was clean. Our site was out in the open but they do have many sites with shade trees. There is a playground and a clean pool. They also have an arcade for the kids and an area for the adults to sit and enjoy free coffee. I was disappointed they didn?t have wireless or even a phone line to use to get on the internet. They say they are working on Wireless though. The grounds were in good shape and clean. Although it appears to be right next to the Interstate, noise was not a problem at our site. This campground reminds me of the movie Field of Dreams because it appears to have been built in the middle of a cornfield. Right outside our site was the end of the cornfield with 6-foot stocks. If the corn was ready for picking I could have had some real fresh corn since there is no fence between the field and us. We camped at Hickory Hollow Campground in a Motorhome.

Elkhart Campground, Elkhart, Indiana

Date of Stay: July, 2005 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

My first impression of this place was good. It was flat with lots of trees. The office staff was friendly but they are from India and have a hard time understanding and speaking the English language although check in was painless. The interior roads are good gravel with grassy sites. The grass was a little high in spots and looks as though it hasn?t seen water in weeks especially around the few long term residence. All sites are pull through and easy to get into with a big rig. They are long enough to handle a 40 footer with tow attached. They don?t give you a lot of width but I had both slides out and all my awnings and still had plenty of room. We were set up with minimal leveling. They have a pool which has seen better days but it is usable. There is a blacktop basket ball court with many cracks and weeds growing up through. The miniature golf looks as if it was built in a weekend by an amature carpenter. The sand volley ball court looked ok. There is a minimal stocked store, rec room, and 1 modem hookup in the office area. I didn?t use the restrooms so I can?t comment on them. Although it is a few blocks away from the interstate you can hear it at night but not enough to be an issue otherwise the park is quiet (no trains). Generally this park isn?t all that bad. I would recommend it. It does appear to be an old KOA by the looks of the office building. We stayed for 5 nights and felt safe and comfortable. There is a Wal-Mart Supercenter close by for all your needs. It is close to the Elkhart Visitor?s Center, RV museum, and some factory tours. We camped at Elkhart Campground in a Motorhome.

Pottawattamie County Fair Campground, Avoca, Iowa

Date of Stay: July, 2005 - $10.00
Overall Rating:

Very nice appearance with grassy sites under large shade trees. There is a Camp Host that is very friendly. He is involved with the complete fairgrounds and can help you with all your needs. The campground area is located in a corner of the fairground and is fenced off. It is a large grassy field with lots of shade trees. Most sites are level but some can be a bit tricky to get leveled. The place is very clean. It is in a nice quiet part of town so you can expect a good nights sleep. We stayed here 1 night. We camped at Pottawattamie County Fair Campground in a Motorhome.

Myrtle Beach Travel Park, Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

Date of Stay: May, 2005 - $31.00
Overall Rating:

This place is absolutely fabulous. They have wooded sites, lake sites, and beach sites. With over 1100 sites you have a good choice. You don?t ever have to leave the park. The beach is long and clean. They have a fully stocked store, snack bar, caf?, laundry, and more. Both the indoor and outdoor pools are large and clean and they even have a Lazy River for tubing. There is always entertainment going on. The place is always clean and the staff is very friendly and helpful. They have their own visitors center that will make reservations for in town entertainment for you. It is midway between North and South Myrtle Beach so access to both is easy. If you are heading to or through Myrtle Beach, this is the place to stay. We camped at Myrtle Beach Travel Park in a Motorhome.

James Island County Park, Charleston, South Carolina

Date of Stay: May, 2005 - $31.00
Overall Rating:

I am glad I read the other reviews on this campground. It is everything they said it is. We stayed here for 8 days. It rained half the time and the maintenance crew was out every time opening drains and directing water. Mosquito control was on top of spraying to keep the population down. Litter was picked up everyday. Lots to do here with all the hike/bike trails, fishing, dog beach, water slides, and climbing wall. Beach is close by and your park pass covers the parking fees. Close to all dinning and attractions in Charleston. Very friendly and helpful staff. We camped at James Island County Park in a Motorhome.
