MacLeod's Beach Campground, Dunvegan, Nova Scotia

Date of Stay: July, 2011 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

Rate includes HST tax and full hookups. Gorgeous setting with spacious sites, amazing views of the highlands, dunes, sandy beach and ocean. Lots of grassy mowed open space, as well as natural settings. The beach has a small brook running through it: perfect for child's play! Outdoor beach showers in addition to shower house. Clean. Lots of seasonal campers: their sites were tidy, and we found them to be friendly as well. Do not reply on GPS directions. Imperative that BIg Rigs use the north end of Broad Cove Marsh Road (loop off 19). Follow the signage from Route 19 and you'll be fine! It's just 1/2 mile off route 19. From this location we drove the Cabot Trail (in the toad) and also visited the famous Red Shoe Pub ( great food & music) and Glenora Distillery. We camped at MacLeod's Beach Campground in a Motorhome.

Shubie Campground, Dartmouth, Nova Scotia

Date of Stay: July, 2011 - $41.00
Overall Rating:

Shubie was a wonderful park from which to base our Halifax/Peggy's Cove days. Night-time security, helpful staff, laundromat, Wi-Fi for $2, nearby bus route, easy drive to ferry terminal for going to Halifax, large grocery within 5 miles. We were at Shubie over Canada Day. We recommend reservations! Park is actually in a nice residential neighborhood, but has all the feel of "country." We also arranged a hiking day to Cape Split and Blomidon Provincial Park with Great E.A.R.T.H. Expeditions with pickup at Shubie: a fantastic day! We camped at Shubie Campground in a Motorhome.

Ponderosa Pines Family Campground, Hopewell Cape, New Brunswick

Date of Stay: June, 2011 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

Price is w/ Good Sam discount. This small park is just minutes from the famous Hopewell Cape Flowerpots. Much of the park has small tight spaces, although Big Rigs are squeezed into them. Though we parked our MH and toad per instructions, common courtesy required us to move the toad 3 times in one day to allow other rigs to enter their spaces. No escort to the site. If we travel this area again, we would stay at Ponderosa Pines but would ask to have a site in the back, near the Bay of Fundy, where sites are more spacious. We camped at Ponderosa Pines Family Campground in a Motorhome.

Century Farm Family Campground, St. Martins, New Brunswick

Date of Stay: June, 2011 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

Rate is with Good Sam discount. This park has great views of the Bay of Fundy sea caves -- be sure to ask for a site with a good view, as all sites do not have. Very attentive staff! Interior roads are paved and sites are reasonable in size. Family friendly without the "gimmicks" --just the great out doors, plenty of place to play, a beach (stones, not sand), and a playground! No real grocery nearby so come prepared. Wi-Fi worked most of the time. Be sure to visit the sea caves at low tide but not accessible in your over-12 ft high Big Rig. Have some chowder at the Sea Caves restaurant. Avoid the too-green firewood at the Ace hardware store. A good park for visiting the Fundy Trail. We camped at Century Farm Family Campground in a Motorhome.

Paul Bunyan Campground, Bangor, Maine

Date of Stay: June, 2011 - $34.00
Overall Rating:

Rate is with Good Sam discount. I would not describe this park as Big Rig Friendly as our "pull-thru" site required disconnecting the toad before making sharp turns on a grassy "road", dodging a surface rock, before entering our site. Even with his CDL experience, my driver found it necessary to back-up before pulling into this narrow site. This park was okay, but the necessary unhooking diminished its close to the interstate advantage. We camped at Paul Bunyan Campground in a Motorhome.

Mystic KOA, North Stonington, Connecticut

Date of Stay: June, 2011 - $53.00
Overall Rating:

Rate is with KOA membership card. This park has everything KOA usually has: pillows, pools, and pancakes, aimed at providing entertainment for children and totally unnecessary for the rest of us. Although named the MYSTIC KOA, it really is in North Stonington and approximately 10 miles from Mystic, and 8 miles from the Foxwoods casino. Our preference is to stay in the Safari area, not so close to neighbors. We do recommend that you ask to stay on the side farthest from the I-95 traffic noise. Staff is friendly. Note the 350 year old tree in the Safari area. The Mystic Seaport historical living history museum and village are worth a visit. We camped at Mystic KOA in a Motorhome.

French Quarter RV Resort, New Orleans, Louisiana

Date of Stay: March, 2011 - $69.00
Overall Rating:

This RV Park is 2-3 blocks from the French Quarter and was a great place from which to base our New Orleans visit. Signage from I-10 was clear, and but we would suggest avoiding rush hours 7-9a and 3-7p for arrival and departure. The park is gated and we felt very safe. Site surface is pavers, and the park drive is one-way. After entering the gate, pull forward, rather than turning. Concierge service has been very helpful: in fact, they made our city tour reservation complete with pickup at the RV park, and suggested a great pizza delivery restaurant. Walking to the French Quarter has provided needed exercise. The food in the city is fantastic! Wi-Fi works well from the site. A very small pool, laundry, and hot tub are available. No activities for children, including no bicycling within the compact park. Since this park is in the city, expect to hear traffic noise from I-10. We camped at French Quarter RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Topsail Hill State Preserve, Santa Rosa Beach, Florida

Date of Stay: March, 2011 - $47.00
Overall Rating:

Price state includes sales and local taxes. Topsail Hill continues to be our very favorite state park. The park is clean with paved streets and is both family friendly and adult friendly. The beach is beautiful and without commercialism, though this year jelly fish were problematic. This park is very Big Rig and bicycle friendly. We love its tall pines. The laundromat was clean and functional. Wi-Fi is not available, and we found ATT service to be limited as well. The pool is small but was heated this year. Just outside the park, a paved bicycle path makes riding or jogging into the village of Oceanside very pleasant. Nearby restaurant and seafood market, Goatfeathers, is our new favorite and Lucilles's Gossip Parlour, a coffee and ice cream shop, had free Wi-Fi. We camped at Topsail Hill State Preserve in a Motorhome.

Skidaway Island State Park, Savannah, Georgia

Date of Stay: March, 2011 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

Skidaway Island State Park is a beautiful setting with well-marked trails for hiking through a southern woods to a lookout on the intracoastal. Reservations do not identify a specific site -- it's first come, first served -- we were glad to have arrived shortly after check in time at 1 p.m. All sites, mostly spacious, are pull thru, but the paved campground roads tend to be narrow and some sites have overhanging limbs that make them unfriendly for Big Rigs. The drive from I-95 is too long for just an overnight, but this park makes a great location from which to base several days of Savannah touring. Wi-Fi was available at the park office pavilion but not at the sites. We camped at Skidaway Island State Park in a Motorhome.

Ho-Hum RV Park, Carrabelle, Florida

Date of Stay: March, 2011 - $29.00
Overall Rating:

Our visit to Ho-Hum was without reservations, so the only available site was a very narrow one which did not allow us to open slides on both sides of our rig. While the park is on the Gulf, just 16 sites are waterfront. The staff was super friendly and helpful. The laundry room was clean and efficient and the Wi-Fi worked well from our site. Ho-Hum was a great place to relax from our travels, and there is a narrow fishing pier that seems to be popular with guests. We camped at Ho-Hum RV Park in a Motorhome.
