McGregor Lakes RV, Marion, Montana

Date of Stay: September, 2019 - $37.00
Overall Rating:

This was our third visit to McGregor Lake RV and once again we had a wonderful experience. On-line reservations were simple and we also got a call back from the host within a day or two. Paid a 50% deposit on booking and the balance at registration. The host and his wife were very pleasant, providing us with some basic information and a couple of rules as we checked in. We had a FHU pull through site with 50amp power that had no issues of low voltage or spikes. Water pressure is adequate and the water tasted fine. The utility post was about halfway along the 85' gravel pad that sloped slightly from left to right and also had a bit of a dip right around where our steps came out, meaning we had a sizable drop from the step to the ground. The grass between us and the site to our door side was lush and well cared for by the seasonal campers staying there. Each site comes with a picnic table and fire pit. Satellite connection is also available through the utility post but requires a Dish decoder. Basic Wi-Fi is available and included in the price. The interior roads have now been paved with asphalt since our last visit so there is significantly less dust. The bathrooms are regularly cleaned - seemingly several times of the day. The laundry is still $5 for one washer load and dry, $8 for two and $10 for three loads, payable to the host who then unlocks the laundry area. Hwy 2 runs past the CG but the volume of traffic is fairly light and didn't bother us all. Occasionally, I got one bar of AT&T on my Canadian Rogers cell phone - bliss. OTA tv was also non-existent. Made for a very peaceful week. The short trail around the CG is a pleasant and easy walk. Being late August, early September we did not get pestered with mosquitos at all. Mountain blue birds though were very evident. This is no longer advertised as a Good Sam location but the rates are very reasonable without that. We camped at McGregor Lakes RV in a Fifth Wheel.

Mail/parcels can be sent to the CG. Kalispell is about 30 miles east and they are re-paving Hwy 2 so the road is in good condition (Sept 2019). Lots of good shopping (Costco/Wal-Mart) and restaurants.

Rollins Restaurant & RV Park, Rollins, Montana

Date of Stay: July, 2019 - $55.00
Overall Rating:

The weekly rate is $340 offering a discount of $45 for 7 nights. When making my reservation I was asked for the make and model of my RV. After driving up the hill to the back of the CG to where the office is located, the host knew who I was from the details of my RV and greeted me by name. The CG is tiered on several levels and we were placed at the back, furthest away from the road and with a good view of the Flathead Lake - which isn't directly accessible from the CG and involves crossing a very busy highway. Our site was a level gravel & dirt pad just long enough for our 40' 5er. The truck had to park slightly ahead and to the door side. We had booked a 50amp full hook-up. The power and water worked well and all services were located so that our hoses and cables reached without extensions. The hosts provide an escort to the site and facilitate your parking and maneuvering using small traffic pylons as a guide. The sites are fairly wide and for most of the week we had nobody at either side of us. Roads are asphalt and for big rigs, when the park is full, turns can be extremely tight. For the journey as we left the park, one of the hosts sent us around the CG. Due to the volume of parked vehicle and their location, we had to negotiate a hairpin bend which almost had us tipped down a steep ridge on damp grass. A different host came to assist me in maneuvering, asking why we'd come that way. When I explained, he was none too impressed with the direction I had been provided by the first host. Neither was my wife or I. Bathrooms are older but clean and required an access code to enter. There is a laundry and communal building, but we didn't use these. Wi-Fi is included in the price and worked adequately. Communal fire pits are dotted around the CG as are the children's' play equipment. Kerbside garbage collection is conducted daily but if missed you take it to the back of an old pick-up truck. We camped at Rollins Restaurant & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Cranbrook / St. Eugene KOA, Cranbrook, British Columbia

Date of Stay: June, 2019 - $75.00
Overall Rating:

All prices are in Cdn $ and include tax. As others have said, this is a brand new KOA and still under some development with the spray park being the main work for this year and then I believe its own pool for next year. Check-in was simple with plenty of space to park a 40' 5er while we did so. I was escorted to my site which was located along the St Mary's River. We'd opted for a back-in, riverside site with FHU. This gave us 50 amp and cable tv with 40+ Chanel's as well as water and sewer. Being new, everything worked perfectly. Sites are long, wide and level but on the back-in sites be wary because the utilities are towards the back and depending where you rig connections may be, you might require extra hose or cable. I backed up so that my rear end was overhanging the grass and allowed me to reach the connection without the extensions. All sites and roads are grey rock chips that allow good drainage. Each site has a concrete patio, fire pit and heavy duty log bench seat and table. Staff work diligently to keep the place looking well manicured and when the saplings between sites mature in years to come they will offer some shade. At the end of June, even on a weekend, the CG was only about 20% occupied. Staff were very pleasant and the owner/manager went out of his way to assist. Discounts are available for golf and food at the adjacent casino resort. The bathrooms are all private rooms with toilet, shower, hand sink and hair dryers. Spotlessly clean and open 24/7 in the main office building. There is a games room/tv and laundry with four washers and dryers. $3 to wash $1 to dry (15 minutes). Wi-Fi is good and we had no problems connecting. The one less desirable site IMHO would be pull-thru # 57. Only because there is a large electrical transformer at about door level on the door side of the RV. Other than that, this is a fantastic RV park. Minor passing traffic and the occasional rumble of a train about a km away. We camped at Cranbrook / St. Eugene KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Deer Park RV Resort (formerly Spokane RV Resort), Deer Park, Washington

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $42.00
Overall Rating:

We originally reserved for seven nights but later phoned to come in four nights prior to our initial reservation. As this was extending over the Labor Day weekend I was a little apprehensive but the staff managed to find us a site for the duration of our planned stay. Arriving on a Saturday evening after 4pm we found the office closed but our site package had been left out and available for us. Initially, we had back in site #81 that lies along the western edge of section A and also borders the fairway. This was an asphalt site that has a slope from back to front for drainage, a concrete patio, picnic table and seat. The utilities are located towards the rear of the pad that meant I had to go deep in order to reach the control panel for my rig. By doing this, the rear 8' of our RV was beyond the asphalt. Not a big problem until the sprinklers came on during the night and raked across the back cap, waking us with a bit of a start. After three nights we were able to move to site #145 in section B. This was a long (80'+) and wide (25'+) back-in concrete pad on the northern side of the resort. There is a slight front to rear slope for drainage but otherwise perfectly level and equipped with a picnic table. The neighbours were seasonal occupants and very pleasant to chat with although we didn't have too much interaction. For both sites the 50amp power, water, sewer and cable TV connection worked perfectly. I was advised the water pressure was high but we didn't find it to be too high for the plumbing on the RV. For a busy holiday period the pool was very quiet and we enjoyed it to ourselves for most of the time. The staff/hosts were very pleasant on the odd occasion that we interacted. The bathrooms are spotlessly clean and the whole resort is very well maintained. The laundry has eight washing machines and eight driers all at $2 a load with change and detergent available. Wi-Fi is included in the price but sometimes extremely slow. We camped at Deer Park RV Resort (formerly Spokane RV Resort) in a Fifth Wheel.

Campland RV Resort, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $46.00
Overall Rating:

All fees are in Cdn $ and exclude the tax. A very large (approximately 150 sites), structured CG with all RV parked in rows. Mainly pull through sites although some back-in sites were available along the perimeter. The sites are level, gravel about 65' long and wide enough for a big rig with opposing slides. Convenient from Hwy 16 but along a short, washboard gravel road that in dry weather is extremely dusty and I imagine in wetter conditions is very muddy - not the CG fault or responsibility. The interior roads of the campground are dirt and gravel. Power and water services located towards the rear of the site in a site numbered utility post. Water pressure is apparently very high and they recommend using a regulator when bringing this to your attention at registration. The sewer drop was located more to the centre of the length of the site. A fire pit & new picnic bench table are also provided but only wood purchased at their campground may be burned. Pay for showers are available at $2 (Cdn) for four minutes and there is a small pool that we did not use. This is available between 11am - 8pm but had a price tag of $8 per adult. I believe there was a daily family tag for about $14. Both charges seem a little steep when paying to stay here in the first place. Wi-Fi is included in the price and you are given an access code valid for the duration of your stay. It did work pretty well for checking emails or browsing. The grass is very neatly manicured but to our surprise at about 2pm in the afternoon we were asked to move in order to allow the irrigation system 30 minutes watering the grass. I noticed a little later that several families where huddled under the overhang of their 5er or between the hitch and tow-ball of their TT. Apparently, there is a $250 fine applied directly to your CC if found to have driven on their grass. We camped at Campland RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Bry-Mar RV Park & Campground, Brandon, Manitoba

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

All fees are in Cdn $. Once on property the office can be found at the back of a large shop building. There are steps and also a wheelchair ramp providing access. Parking outside the office is plentiful but the check-in process was quick and easy. We had no reservation however, I had emailed ahead to check they had space. We were given what is a back in site but told to drive in from the opposite end and through a vacant site slightly offset at the back of us. The lady in the office was pleasant as she processed my details. Sites are grass and dirt. Ours needed some slight leveling from side to side. The site was long enough for our 40' 5er and truck with plenty of room both front and rear. We didn't connect to the sewer but the drop was located about midway along the correct side and not too far from the water supply. This had a good pressure. I was advised this was a 40 amp site (never come across that before). There was a 30 amp connection but with both AC's running and the EMS showing 32 amps drawn we didn't trip the breaker. Sites are near to one another but between units there is a short strip of privacy fencing. All internal roads are gravel and dust. There is a large childrens play area with swings and other equipment. There is also an amphitheatre with stage area that I noticed as I walked around. I'm not sure about other areas but there is a 3D map that appears to depict some sort of theme park setting - perhaps something for the future? I didn't use the showers or toilets but the were clean and newer looking. The disabled toilet area is behind a separate door at the back of the office building. The laundry has three washing machines and three driers. $2.50 for washing , $3 for drying. Although this is only a 150m from the TCH, traffic noise didn't bother us. Definitely worth considering an overnight stay if traversing Canada and I did notice several signs indicating visitor attractions not too far from the CG. We camped at Bry-Mar RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Crystal Lake Campground, Vermilion Bay, Ontario

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

All fees are in Cdn $ before tax. This is our second year visiting Crystal Lake, a large but low volume campground. Large because it is in a parcel of land about 40 acres in size. Low volume because there are only a handful of spaces. The wife and co-owner is very helpful and was able to find us a 100'+ level, asphalt, site with 50/30 & 20 amp, water and sewer. We also scored what I would suggest is their best pull-through site, #2. This has a couple of large conifer trees that afford some shade and screening between site #1 & 2 in addition to the strip of grass about 30' wide. All sites appear to have a fire pit and picnic bench table. This husband and wife team are constantly busy, even on a Sunday, mowing the grass, collecting garbage from waste bins placed between sites and generally maintaining the campground. Their high work ethic really shows and this CG is very well presented. The utilities worked perfectly during our stay and are well placed (for my rig) along the site. Wi-Fi is included in the cost of the site and worked well enough to open emails and browse web sites. Water is provided from the spring fed lake adjacent to the CG. The owners are confident that it is safe to drink but government regulations mean they have to show a "Boil Water" advisory. We drank the water and suffered no ill effects. The washrooms are clean and tidy. Since my first visit the owners have clearly indicated which showers are male and female but I didn't use them showers because we used our onboard facilities. There is a small laundry for a $2 charge, payable at the office. This really is a great little campground and most definitely the best we have stayed at both years while passing through Ontario. Whenever we are back out this way I would most certainly look to stay here again. The opportunity to relax is stunning and after several days of driving this is a wonderful place to rest for a few days. We camped at Crystal Lake Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Behind the office is a soft, sandy beach area providing access to a safe swimming space. A variety of canoes and kayaks are available to rent. The lake is really beautiful and has a short trail the heads from the CG. If there is one word of caution, it is within earshot of a railroad line and the trains, although not frequent, do announce their presence. Small grocery store in Vermilion Bay (10 minutes away) that has most essential food items.

Wild Goose Lake Campground, Greenstone, Ontario

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

The price is in Cdn $ before tax. We arrived here after driving all day from Iroquois Falls, ON which is about 550km away. We had no reservation and decided to give it a try based on the reviews we'd read. Leaving the main highway you drive a short way along a dirt/gravel road following the signs. Be careful though as there is another, similar named resort, a few hundred meters before you arrive at this place. Once through the entrance drive up the short hill, following the signs to the office that overlooks the lake. The owner greeted me and offered me a pull-through site for the night. This was sandy soil but fairly level, nestled in amongst some shrubs and trees and between some seasonal residents. Most of the sites here do appear to be seasonal but they also look to be expanding the CG with newer, grass or sandy soil sites. Our site had 30 amp power, sewer and water that was not sanctioned for drinking (according to the notice on the supply connection). My guess would be that it is drawn directly from the lake. It wasn't possible for me to fire up the AC because my PI EMS repeatedly shut down the power due to low voltage - showing 106 or less. Also, there wasn't a breaker re-set on the power post. The laundry had two washers and two dryers, although one dryer was defective. Washing appears to be $2 per load. The laundry was untidy but this may be down to the people using it and not clearing up after themselves. The washrooms were functional but we didn't use those or the showers that are $1 for ten minutes according to the note I read. This is far enough from the highway that traffic noise is not a problem. There is a kids play area as well as the lake to occupy them. We camped at Wild Goose Lake Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Cameron's Beach Trailer Park, Iroquois Falls, Ontario

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

All fees are in Cdn $ excluding tax. Entry to the park is controlled by a barrier remotely operated from the office some distance away. Once through there I located the office down near the lake and requested a space for a couple of nights. Having a 40' 5er, the owner suggested that she took me to look at what they had available in order to see if we could fit. Having seen the sites and being advised that some were only available for one night, I took that option and booked for just the one night. If paying by credit card (Visa or MC) there is a $2 per night fee (not per booking). The site was a fairly level sand/dirt pull-through with 30 amp power, water and sewer. The utilities were located fairly central along the site and on the correct side. There was no breaker on the power post and water pressure was pretty low. As soon as I switched on the power we had a low voltage warning with less than 104 volts. For that reason we decided not to engage the AC despite the 29oC evening temperatures. The site had been raked prior to us coming in but my wife found several small piles of dog excrement in between the trees separating us from the vacant neighbouring site. We had a picnic bench and fire pit but due to the flies (not the fault of the CG) we remained indoors for the evening. I did take a walk out to the bathrooms and found them to be pretty clean despite the heavy use they get. Showers are pay showers ($1 Cdn in 25c coins for 8 minutes). Most of the sites here are seasonal. Some very well cared for, some not so and in need of some TLC. Landscaping is very marginal once through the entrance with many sites having either very long, wispy grass or a variety of mats covering the floor. The owner (or manager) was very helpful, trying to accommodate us but I doubt we'd stay We camped at Cameron's Beach Trailer Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Waterways Campground, Cheboygan, Michigan

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $41.00
Overall Rating:

We made a late reservation and got a site large enough for a 40' fifth wheel with 50 amp power, water and sewer connections that all worked as expected. On arrival we received a warm welcome from the owner who checked us in and later, during our stay, I was pleasantly surprised when, without any further interaction, he remembered my name. Our site was grass but wasn't level from side to side and it took several layers of the orange blocks to bring the passenger side up. Interior roads are gravel and there is a 5mph speed limit. There are plenty of trees within the campground, many of those are fruit trees which may attract wasps later in the year. Being close to the M-27 and M-33 roads, I did notice quite a lot of traffic noise, especially trucks using their jake brakes. There is a boat launch and mooring at the campground which is accessible for campground residents. Some of the sites appear to be taken by seasonal guests but from my experience there are lots of good sites available for transient RVers such as myself. The washroom were always clean and had a smell of fresh paint. There was a notice to indicate the washrooms closed at 10pm but I didn't find that to be the case. We camped at Waterways Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Port Huron Township RV Park, Port Huron, Michigan

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

We called in here late in the afternoon on a very hot day after having driven down from Mackinaw. The CG is easy to find, located just off the interstate prior to crossing the bridge in to Canada (travelling east). Fortunately, the reception lady was able to give us a space on a (Canadian) holiday weekend, that we could shoe-horn our 40' 5er in to. Although it did take the help of a couple of other guest who uprooted some marker posts, enabling us to squeeze in. On the site we had the utility posts are shared which meant that for us, power and water was on our door side and the cable and hose ran across the site and under the rig. With that said, the power was a stable 120v 50amp supply and the water came at a good pressure. We didn't bother hooking up to sewer, although it was there if we needed it. This appears to be a very sociable CG with several organized activities (pot luck, coffee mornings, etc.). Nearby we found diesel at a very good price when compared to what we'd been paying elsewhere in MI and certainly what I expect we'll be shelling out for in ON. Despite being so close to a major interstate, traffic noise wasn't really noticeable while the AC was running. We found this to be a good stopping point if travelling too or from Canada at the Port Huron/Sarnia crossing point. One thing to consider. If using a credit card, there is a separate charge - in our case $4. We camped at Port Huron Township RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Green Acre Park, Waterloo, Ontario

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $53.00
Overall Rating:

The price indicated is in Cdn $. This is a very large campground occupied by mainly seasonal guests. There are, however, approximately 80 assorted sites for short-term guests. 
On arrival the check-in was easy and we were given an escort to our site. This was about the only interaction we had with staff during our week-long stay. We had a site that was just long enough for our truck and 40' fifth wheel trailer. The site was a mix of gravel and dirt with a narrow patch of grass separating us from our neighbours on both sides. On our door side we had a very uneven brick patio area with weeds growing through and a picnic bench. Towards the front end of the site we had a fire pit. The sewer, 50 amp power and water utilities were conveniently located for where the layout of our RV has them located. The utilities also worked very well despite the huge draw on power caused by the excessive heat and people having to use their AC most of the time. The site itself had quite a slope from front to rear and a slight slope from side to side which I was able to handle thanks to the orange blocks and the hydraulic levelling system on my rig. Other than the bathrooms and laundry ($3 to wash) we did not use other guest facilities such as the pool. The bathrooms were always clean during our visit despite never seeing them closed for service. Wi-fi is included in the price and varied in ability. One thing to note here; every time you either log off or shut down the computer for a few minutes you then had to log back in using the user id and code provided. Despite the number of people and it also being over the Canadian and US major holiday dates this campground was very quiet. This is a long drive from Toronto and not an ideal location if you're using that as a base to see the city or visit family and friends living there. With that said, it is one of the better RV campgrounds in the area and I would consider staying here again. We camped at Green Acre Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Visit St Jacobs Farmers Market. The best days are Thursday and Saturday. Also open on a Tuesday but that's when they're selling off the produce left over from the Saturday - according to the locals. Grocery shopping within a couple of miles from the CG (Sobeys)

Glen Rouge Campground, Toronto, Ontario

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $41.00
Overall Rating:

This campground is on the very eastern edge of Toronto and the price per night is in Cdn $ without the $10 reservation fee or tax (13%). Having travelled from Waterloo, ON this place was pretty easy to find, located a short distance from the 401 at the bottom of a slight dip in the Kingston Road. Signage from the street isn't great but out GPS took us straight in. Check-in was simple but I didn't get any map of the CG and drove in using memory from when I'd made a reservation. Despite the proximity to the highway, noise is buffered by the trees and barely noticeable. The interior road signs could do with improvement because shortly after entering the park the single lane in/out road splits in to three separate roads without any indication about what sites are on which road. The interior roads are paved and do go around in a series of loops. The site was very long and big enough for our 40' 5er and truck. It also appeared to be quite wide but that may be because we had nothing parked next to us in the adjacent two sites for the duration of our stay. The site was grass and dirt (where someone had previously had a carpet for an extended time killing the grass). We had a picnic table and fire pit. Water pressure was good as was the 30 amp power we had. There are no sewer sites here which is a let down and meant I had to go out and buy a waste water tote to empty the grey tanks on the rig. There is only one set of CG washrooms that are cleaned but due to the volume of people using them, soon began to look untidy. What you don't see from their map is these are located atop of a hill about 30' above the CG level. There is a steep path or set of stairs to access these but for those in a wheelchair or other medical condition it could be very challenging to reach. Wi-Fi was good and is included in the price. There are lots of trees that provide good shade and a habitat for wildlife. Raccoons are prevalent so ensure everything is secured overnight. We camped at Glen Rouge Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Great location to base oneself while visiting Toronto and the surrounding areas. Plenty of shopping close by and a Costco within about 15 minutes drive.

Jack Pine Lodge Campground, Manistique, Michigan

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

We arrived on a Saturday afternoon having made an on-line reservation only the evening before and to my surprise the campground was almost empty. Check-in was very easy at the bar/restaurant just off the M-94. The staff member here was very friendly and provided us with good directions to our site. Once we got in to our site, the host took the time to come over and introduce himself which I thought was a nice, friendly gesture. We had site #19 as it is located on the end of a row with no neighbours on our door side - just ferns and trees. The site was long enough for our 40' 5er plus truck. The pad was made of gravel but sloped towards the back and required some leveling on the door side to bring us straight. The utilities are located at the back of the site which required us to use an extension hose for water as our intake is towards the front of the rig. Our 35' 50 amp cable was long enough to reach. We had a fire pit available but didn't use it. We also had a large picnic bench that we did use. There is no cable and we couldn't find any OTA tv signals but their wi-fi was flawless. The washrooms are clean with good access for the disabled. We didn't use the showers but they looked ok. The TP is extremely thin, single ply paper. Perhaps something to do with the septic system. There is a laundry with two washers and two dryers. $2 for a wash, $1 for the dryer. The grounds are well maintained and I did see the staff raking the sites when the opportunity arose. For children there is a play area close to the restaurant. Food at the bar/restaurant is excellent and I would recommend the burger or the beef sandwich. Traffic noise from the M-94 is minimal and didn't bother us at all. The flies and other bugs are ferocious but manageable. We really enjoyed our three nights here, feeling very safe and would certainly stop here again when next in the area. We camped at Jack Pine Lodge Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Eat at the bar/restaurant that is part of this overall business. The burgers are great and the whitefish is highly recommended but only served one night per week.

Top O' The Morn Resort & Campground, Iron River, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $33.00
Overall Rating:

In May we tried to reserve a weekend here for late June but found the CG was already pretty booked up. The owners were very responsive and placed us on a wait list for any last minute cancellations but ultimately we could only have one night there on an electric/water site. Our location actually placed us right in amongst a seasonal family and we felt as though we would be encroaching on their space if we sat outside. Not the fault of anyone, just our feeling. The site we did have was an old but fairly level concrete pad that we squeezed our 40' 5er on to. It was nicely shaded and had a large grassy space but like I mentioned, merged in to our neighbours fire pit and green space. The hosts/owners or managers (not sure) were very responsive and tried hard to find us a serviced space but due to the popularity of this location we could only have the one night. Power and water was very good and their wi-fi was excellent. There are some really nice locations within the CG which also has access to a lake in which you can swim, water-ski, kayak or canoe. The CG is far enough from Hwy 2 that you cannot hear it and no trains! We didn't try for any tv stations and don't have satellite. There is an on-site bar and laundry that we didn't make use of. The washrooms were older but clean, located behind the office/bar area and accessible 24/7. This is very much a family orientated CG but still quiet enough for a couple in their mid 50's with no kids or pets and we would definitely stay here again. We camped at Top O' The Morn Resort & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
