White Birches Camping Resort, Shelburne, New Hampshire

Date of Stay: August, 2019 - $22.00
Overall Rating:

This campground is much larger that it appears at first. As Passport America visitors, we were located just inside the park. The sites were level and the view was clear (good sat signal). While walking around the park, we discovered there are amazing camp sites deep in the woods and back near the connecting paths to the Appalachian Trail. On the plus side, the location of this park is great for visiting Mount Washington and touring the White Mountains. The pool is very nice and there are extensive play areas. When kids are in the park, they inflate the Bounce House. On the down side, this park is located adjacent to US Route 2 and a major truck route (including lots of logging trucks). If you keep your windows open, road noise is a bit of a problem, even back in the woods. We camped at White Birches Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

Apple Island Resort, South Hero, Vermont

Date of Stay: August, 2019 - $39.00
Overall Rating:

First off, that $39 per night is the Passport America rate. And the 12 nights were split up in 6-day stays, separated by one day out at a repair facility (Passport rate is only good for 6 nights at a time). We were in the Gold section with lots of shade trees but open enough for sat signal. That being said, this is a gorgeous island resort with views of Lake Champlain on two sides of the park. There is a nine hole golf course, beautiful pool and lots of first class activities (bands, wine tastings, casino nights and more). There is a marina and boat launch suitable for kayaks, canoes and power boats and there is a small store on site. The mostly work-camper staff could not be more helpful or friendly. There is also a state park, within one mile, with a swimming beach and free access to the water for exploring the marshes and ample wild life. On the downside, you are on Grand Isle and major grocery stores, restaurants and other shopping is a half hour drive away. You will run a rut in the causeway getting to Burlington and points south. We camped at Apple Island Resort in a Motorhome.

The Shelburne Museum is one of the finest museums we've found in the US (your ticket is good for two days and you'll need them both to see it all). Spend at least one day driving around to the cheese farms. Grand Isle has two lovely farmer's markets (Wed and Sat) and there is a very large market, in Burlington, on Saturday as well.

Rideau Acres Campground, Kingston, Ontario

Date of Stay: July, 2019 - $44.00
Overall Rating:

This is a nice park located on the Great Cataraqui River. Its only 20 minutes into Kingston and easily accessed from Canadian 401. The park is very family friendly with lots of things for kids to do. Its a very large park, with lots of 'annuals' but there appear to be plenty of well located, large sites available for visitors. If you can, get into the "Back Forty" area of the park. Every site faces the water and you can put your kayak in right at your site. We were in Site S15 got excellent DirecTV signal; looks like S10 and S11 also get signals...even though its very shady. There is a very well maintained walking path thru the woods and along the river. They also have a Nine Hole Disc Golf course set up in the woods. Wild life is abundant. One of the nicest surprises was the fact everyone does the speed limit thru the park (5 mph). We camped at Rideau Acres Campground in a Motorhome.

Nicolston Dam Campground & RV Park, Alliston, Ontario

Date of Stay: July, 2019 - $44.00
Overall Rating:

Located in historic Simcoe County, this is a family friendly, gated campground. The park is very large and the sites are well laid out and spacious, many are located along the Nottawasaga River. They rent kayaks and water toys so you can enjoy either quite water, above their dam, or a little faster pace below. This property has been in the same family for many generations and the family/staff are quite friendly and helpful. The sites have good utilities. Please note that if you're in the back, pull-thru section, you must drive down a very steep (short) hill between VERY CLOSE evergreens that need trimming. Your rig will drag along the trees. The dump station is a little hidden and hard to get into if you're towing (hook up after you dump). The area is a bit swampy, nearby, so expect mosquitoes. Grocery stores are nearby in Alliston and its only a few minutes off Highway 400. We camped at Nicolston Dam Campground & RV Park in a Motorhome.

Green Acre Park, Waterloo, Ontario

Date of Stay: July, 2019 - $44.00
Overall Rating:

This very large park is family friendly with lots of water features, well maintained play grounds and good roads. The sites are level but very close together. It's location is close to stores and markets and easy to find. As mentioned, the sites are very tight. When the folks next door cranked up their fire pit, we got smoked out (even with our windows closed). Lucky for us, they were there only two nights and the rest of our stay was smoke free. The park is about a mile from the St. Jacobs Farmers Market...a must see experience! If you love the conservative Mennonite culture, you will find this area most interesting. We camped at Green Acre Park in a Motorhome.

Addison Oaks County Park, Leonard, Michigan

Date of Stay: July, 2019 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

This park is designed for family use and those who like hiking, playing disk golf, horseback riding and the like. I thought it was overpriced, considering there were no sewer hook ups. That being said, the dump station had three stalls and were easy to use on the way out of the park. Our site was a pull thru with gravel base and a nice concrete pad for the picnic table. There were also additional parking spaces next to each site (nice touch). We stayed here so we could visit Meadow Brook Hall mansion. Driving around the area, it became clear why the park is so expensive. There appears to be quite a lot of wealth in the Rochester area and very few RV parks. Note the roads into the park are not all paved, choose your entry carefully (take Rochester Road to Romeo Road). Also, the interior roads of the park are all dirt so it can be muddy until you get to the RV sites. Dump Station is large and easy to navigate. We camped at Addison Oaks County Park in a Motorhome.

St Clair RV Resort - Thousand Trails , St Clair, Michigan

Date of Stay: July, 2019 - $1.00
Overall Rating:

As a Thousand Trails member, this park was free to us. Its been about four years since we stayed here and we noticed a huge increase in the number of 'annual' sites. That being said, we were able to grab a full hookup, pull thru site for the week of July 4th (made our reservation a month in advance). Have to compliment the staff on getting us that site. Management goes out of its way to assure all the campers are on sites that fit them. They don't allow small campers/tents/pop ups to sit on sites designed for large rigs. Conversely, they don't allow large rigs to shoe horn into smaller sites. This is a balancing act that takes care and planning. I wish more campgrounds would take this approach. Only real complaint is the roads could use some serious repair. Watch for crater-like potholes on all the roads. We camped at St Clair RV Resort - Thousand Trails in a Motorhome.

St Clair is a cute little town, right on the St Clair river, across from Canada. They have a beautiful boardwalk park with lots of trees. Great for watching the big ships plying the river between the two countries. Port Huron is about 20 minutes away and well worth a visit. This is also where you take the bridge into Canada.

Barry County Fairgrounds, Hastings, Michigan

Date of Stay: June, 2019 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

This is the rural fairground/expo center and there are frequently things going on (a horse show while we were there). The sites are on grass and very spacious. There are plenty of shade trees and lots of open sites as well (satellite signal is very good here). We were the only rig in the entire park when we pulled in on a Friday night. Note, if you come in after 5pm, you're pretty much on your own to find a site and settle in. We arrived late on a Friday and couldn't find anyone to pay until the following Monday. Dump Station only. We camped at Barry County Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

Kankakee South KOA, Chebanse, Illinois

Date of Stay: June, 2019 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

This is a nice little park, out in the country, with lots of trees. We've stayed here before (only park near relatives in Kankakee). The pool is clean, the trees are shady and the folks at the front desk could not be nicer. They've recently expanded and have a large area in the back with pull thru sites and 50 amps. The water lines are heated, back there, and can accommodate winter visitors (a lot of wind farm workers and seasonal trades people stay here). It's about 20 minutes into Kankakee. We camped at Kankakee South KOA in a Motorhome.

Wisconsin State Fair RV Park, West Allis, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: June, 2019 - $42.00
Overall Rating:

This is not a destination RV park, but its centrally located and well maintained. When visiting Milwaukee, this is a good choice. It's 20 minutes to the lake side and all that this area has to offer. The RV park itself is a basic asphalt parking lot. Utilities are set up so two units will share a yard area (you can back in if you prefer more privacy, but utilities will be on the wrong side). The staff was helpful and the little grass they had was well tended. The power was clean. The sewer connection, however, was raised so the hose did not drain without lifting....if you have pin hole leaks, you'll find them here. We camped at Wisconsin State Fair RV Park in a Motorhome.

Also, we found the Pabst Mansion to be quite interesting. Note, your GPS may try to bring you into the fairgrounds via Greenfield. You must enter via Gate 8 on West Adler Street.

Neshonoc Lakeside Camping Resort, West Salem, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: May, 2019 - $1.00
Overall Rating:

On beautiful Lake Neshonoc, this campground is one of the most beautiful we've stayed in. Sites are well spaced, easy to get into and level. The check in staff were very friendly and took time to assure we had plenty of brochures and knew where all the fun stuff could be found. When we arrived, it was mid-week and the place was pretty empty of people. Lots of long-term rigs were set up but there were plenty of open spaces to be had. We visited over Memorial Day weekend and it filled up quickly on Friday and emptied out again on Monday. They have a very full activities calendar and the place is perfect for families; children of all ages were having a summer to remember. Folks were very friendly.

Custer State Park - Game Lodge Campground, Custer, South Dakota

Date of Stay: May, 2019 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

Custer State Park is one of our most favorite parks...you will see wildlife, and its often right out your back door. We stayed in the Game Lodge campground, which is right next to the entrance of the Wildlife Loop and your ticket to seeing herds of buffalo, often right next to the road. This is an excellent campground. We stayed in site #11 which is right near the dump station, water source and laundromat. There is an excellent paved walking path that runs for miles; its a short walk, from here, to both the Visitor Center and the Game Lodge. We camped at Custer State Park - Game Lodge Campground in a Motorhome.

Crazy Horse - This mountain carving has been under construction for 70 years and will not be done in our life time. It is an amazing creation and well worth the visit. Plan to spend a lot of time in the museum, its well worth it.

American Creek Campground, Chamberlain, South Dakota

Date of Stay: May, 2019 - $48.00
Overall Rating:

Due to its location, right on the Missouri river, this campground is very popular in the summer and, I suppose, explains why they charge such high rates. We would not normally pay this much for such an average campsite. It is right on the river and prone to flooding. When we visited, it had been raining for a month and there was standing water everywhere. It is located in a small, rural town but a convenient stop if you're passing from the Black Hills or the Bad Lands, heading east. We camped at American Creek Campground in a Motorhome.

Bob Shetler Campground COE, Johnston, Iowa

Date of Stay: May, 2019 - $10.00
Overall Rating:

Located on Saylorville Lake, this Corp of Engineers park is nicely spaced and sites are very level. We were in the first section (before the spillway), but you still need to go to the other side of the park to check in; there is plenty of space to turn around. We were camped on the lower, smaller section and literally right on the river, just below the dam's spillway. If you like to fish, this is an excellent park. Although its out in the woods, the location is very convenient to the down town area. There are lots of trees and, yet, our DirecTV sat grabbed a signal right away.
