Foxwood Family Campground, East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: August, 2014 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

OK, I will admit, this isn't the best looking campground around. But the people are very friendly and the owners and the seasonal residents are working on improving things a little bit each year. We have been coming here for 6 years, with others in our group for 9 years. The group gets the sunrise retreat cabins. These are actually trailers. They aren't the cleanest things around, but you're camping, do you expect it to look like the Marriott? The price is right though, and it includes a bathroom, two separate bedrooms, one with a full size bed and one with a bunk bed, and a kitchen/living room combo with a futon, a full size fridge and an apartment sized oven. The cabins are arranged in a circle around a big field, and when we book all the cabins we get the field for free. We use this to sit around the campfire together, to cook and serve food, and to play volleyball, football and soccer. It is a very large area. We actually camped on a water/electric site this year with our popup, and it was a nice large and level site with a picnic table and fire ring across from the field. The roads are gravel, but we made it up them fine. The employees go out of their way to accommodate our group, bringing us folding tables to use, and even taking our whole group on a private fire truck ride around the campground. There are a lot of seasonals and some are run down, but this is slowly improving. Also, they redid the bathrooms a couple years ago and now they are kept clean. The pool can sometimes be dirty and I wish this would improve. There are multiple playgrounds and the kids in our group enjoy playing on them. Overall, we've had many great experiences here. It is by no means the best campground out there, but I will be back, hopefully for many years to come. We camped at Foxwood Family Campground in a Tent Trailer.

Bar Harbor / Oceanside KOA, Bar Harbor, Maine

Date of Stay: July, 2014 - $84.00
Overall Rating:

This is a very nice campground, right on the ocean with amazing views, especially at sunset since it is western facing. Our site was one row back from being oceanfront, and we had pretty good views if you looked past the RVs that were oceanfront. Our site was pretty level, but it was very small. We have an 8' box popup, so pretty much the smallest camper out there. When we had it popped up and the awning out, in order to put up our screen room (which was necessary due to their being a lot of bugs) we had to put one corner on the next site over. It was only a little bit but I still felt bad, even though the neighbors that came the next day were OK with it. The bathrooms were clean and the employees were friendly. The couple that drives around selling pies was pretty cool, and the blueberry pie was really good!! The reason I gave this campground 9 out of 10 is because when we called to change from a tent site to an electric site, we were told we were oceanfront, but when we got there found out we weren't. This was quite disappointing. I would have been OK with not being oceanfront as we switched fairly late, but since we were told we got an oceanfront when we didn't it was a bit of a letdown when we got there. We camped at Bar Harbor / Oceanside KOA in a Tent Trailer.

Ricketts Glen State Park, Benton, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: June, 2011 - $19.00
Overall Rating:

I have stayed in many campgrounds, both private and public and this one is my favorite so far. It was in the middle of nowhere, which was a big plus for me. The site was level and shaded. There was a large amount of woods between each site, almost enough for a whole other site. We were waterfront but did not have a view. Driving through the park though we did notice several sites had nice views. There were so many animals. We saw geese (with babies!), a snapping turtle, birds, bunnies, lots and lots of chipmunks and even a bear! He was eating someone's tomatoes that they left out, so be sure to lock up your food or hang it in a tree because they really are out there! The showers were clean and centrally located. The rangers did drive by regularly which made me feel safe, and the people at the visitors center were helpful. There are some souvenirs for sale at the visitors center, including magnets, shirts and walking sticks. There is a store at the corner of 118 and 487, it is a few miles from the park but not terribly far. They function like the camp store and sell everything from tent stakes to sandwiches to firewood and ice. There is also a snack bar in the park and they sell firewood and ice if you catch them when they are open. They sell hot food and ice cream, we had french fries and fried mushrooms and they were delicious. The hiking is great and the waterfalls are gorgeous. It is a steep climb so be prepared. The beach is well maintained and quite large. All the buildings are new and very nice with stone accents. I am ready to book another trip for next summer, I am only waiting because you have to be 11 months or less out!!! We camped at Ricketts Glen State Park in a Tent.

Point Lookout State Park, Scotland, Maryland

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

This is a very nice campground. We stayed here for one night in September while we were passing through, and it made me want to go back for a longer stay. We stayed in site 139 in the Hoffman Loop. It was pretty spacious, and the packed dirt ground was very flat. The bath house was nice and centrally located in the middle of the circle. There was also a sink for washing dishes. We didn't notice any mosquitos, but it may be because it was late in the season. We were participating in the Maryland lighthouse challenge so we visited the lighthouse, which was very nice. There were a lot of people fishing on the causeway and near the lighthouse. I can't wait to go back. We camped at Point Lookout State Park in a Tent.

Mount Pocono Campground, Mount Pocono, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: July, 2005 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

This is a pretty good campground. We stayed here for two nights in a tent during the fourth of July. Our site was pretty spacious, and it was level. However, we paid for a water hookup site, but unfortunately, our site was just right next to a communal spigot, so we had to share it with others. I didn't think that was fair since we paid extra. Also, our site was big, but some of the primitive sites are really small. The campground is also on a huge hill, and if you are in the front sections, you have to walk up and down the hill every time you need to use the restroom. The sites at the very top of the hill have porta potties nearby. For being on a hill, though, the sites are very level. The amenities are nice, the game room has pool and ping pong plus a big screen tv. They also let you borrow board games to bring back to your site, and they have outdoor games like bocce and horsheoes for you to use. The pool is ok, a little small, but it wasn't too crowded, even though the campground was full. It was a little noisy at night, but again, we were there on a holiday, so it might not be like that all the time. Over all, this was a great campground, and I would go back again. We camped at Mount Pocono Campground in a Tent.
