Maumelle COE, Little Rock, Arkansas

Date of Stay: September, 2012 - $22.00
Overall Rating:

This is an excellent park, a COE park that left us impressed in just about every way. Great price, nicely maintained, well designed, and easy access to and in the park with our larger RV. The only negatives, and they are pretty trivial and we knew ahead of time about them, was that there was no sewer and no pool or beach area for swimming. Roads are asphalt with level concrete sites and with nice patios and picnic tables. Staff was friendly and utilities worked well. Access to and in the park was easy for our larger RV. Very quiet at night, slept very well. A fair number of sites will allow satellite signal. Great for an overnight or longer stay, one of the nicest parks we have stayed at, we would look forward to staying here again. We camped at Maumelle COE in a Motorhome.

Seven Points Campground COE, Hermitage, Tennessee

Date of Stay: September, 2012 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

The excitement I had about staying at this COE park quickly evaporated once we arrived. Stayed overnight just two days after labor day holiday. Grass hadn't been mowed anywhere in the park for a long time, at least 2 weeks or more. Grass to my knees in the sites, common areas, playground, and beach made the park look very unkept. Lots of shade in most all of the sites, no chance for satellite unless you have a select site and portable dish. Pull through site was VERY narrow, had to adjust parking position to fit a tree between our two off door slide-outs. Rained overnight during our stay and site was a muddy mess in the morning. 30 Amp electric only in our site and water pressure was lower than most, but adequate. Access to and in the park was pretty good for our larger RV, aside from the narrow pull through site. Back-in sites look easy to negotiate and most are at a good angle, looked plenty long enough, and those with water front view looked to be reasonably nice. This park is OK given the cheap price if you like camping in the woods or fishing and can live without the amenities / hookups, but the park is not at all up to the standards we have encountered at other COE parks. We would stay elsewhere next time. We camped at Seven Points Campground COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Pine Mountain RV Resort, Pine Mountain, Georgia

Date of Stay: July, 2012 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

This was a hard park to rate. The newer section of the park physically is very nice, but every time I turned around something else was annoying me about this park. The bad: it certainly was not cheap to stay here, not sure what criteria they are using to call this a resort. The grass had not been mowed for quite a while in our section; insisted we wear wrist-bands if going to the pool (are you serious?); and at the pool it was obvious most present were not staying at the park or wearing wrist-bands. July must be off season here. There were not more than 30 RV's in the park, and the office assigns us a site in a full row with neighbors next to us. Would have much prefered having some space available to us. Not sure why they felt the need to pack us into a full loop given the emptiness of the park. It appears most present were weekend campers from the surrounding area rather than travellers, which made for a lot more outside radios than normal in resort type parks. The good: Nice level sites with concrete pads. A decent selection of cable channels available. Full hook-ups / utilities worked well. Access to and in the park was very good for our larger RV in the newer section, but would NOT have been so in the older / shadier section. Aside from the pool being filled with non-campers, (lots of cars in the parking lot with Georgia plates who came and went from the park's entrance, not back and forth to RV's), the pool was very nice, with a separate pool for kiddies with a rain / shower play area. If visiting the area we would probably stay here again, but this certainly is not a destination park we would go out of our way to stay at. We camped at Pine Mountain RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Rocky Top Campground, Blountville, Tennessee

Date of Stay: July, 2012 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

A nice RV park locate just off the interstate, but far enough that there is no highway noise. The owners do a nice job of keeping this park attractive and well kept. Shaded and cool, doubtful that any of the sites would allow for satellite TV, but they have a decent selection of cable channels available. Full hook-ups / utilities worked well. Access to and in the park was pretty good for our larger RV, they reserved a pull through site for us and blocked off a site on the other end prior to our arrival to allow easy access, and had someone escort us to our site, explained all hook-ups, and provide any needed help with setting up: a nice touch. Super nice owner in the office provided us with a nice bag with our receipt, snacks, a few pieces of candy after we finished our check-in. This park was nice but was pricey for the amenities provided (no pool). Walked to the nearby KOA and if in this area I would clearly stay at Rocky Top again rather than the KOA which looked run down and half occupied by seasonals with older units. This park is targeted to adult travellers without children (tiny playground / swingset). Very nicely kept rec room at office building. We used this park as an overnight stop and would be comfortable doing so again, but for the price paid we would be pretty tempted to consider someplace cheaper along the way. I may have rated the park another point higher had I not encountered an off leash dog that enjoyed jumping up at me while I walked the perimeter of the park in the evening. Pet friendly is one thing, allowing dogs to run loose off leash in the park is another. We camped at Rocky Top Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Elkhart County Fairgrounds, Goshen, Indiana

Date of Stay: April, 2012 - $21.00
Overall Rating:

I suspect most people leaving high scored reviews for the fairgrounds are factoring in the good time they had at a rally or some other get together at the fairground property rather than just the amenities offered and park itself. I stayed here for an overnight because it was recommended and close by the shop making some repairs to my RV and I found the fairground to be merely adequate for an overnight stay. The office staff was very friendly but advised me there were no full hookup (with 50 amp electric) sites available for the night of my stay. I agreed to the 30 amp electric with water only site without realizing it was in a small, grass, far from level, hillside lot (similar to an overflow parking area) that was VERY soft and muddy from recent rains. Moved several times before I could get a site that allowed me to get close to level. A walk around the fairground later (and on the way out the next morning) reveled that at least two thirds of the sites were empty / open for the night. Gee, I would have much preferred one of the 50 amp full hookup sites which are all level, gravel, and fronting paved roads instead. Also, be aware that there are very active train tracks at the rear of the fairgrounds. If your site is in the back row you will be right beside the train tracks. And the engineers aren't bashful about blowing their horns night and day. The fairground was easy to get to and negotiate the interior roads even with our larger RV. Bathrooms and showers, although older, are well maintained and clean. No pool, plenty of space (indoor and outdoor) for rallies or RV get togethers, wifi so weak and slow it was unusable. I would not stay here again in a 30 amp electric / water site. I would stay here in a full hookup (50 amp electric) site, and probably rate the fairground another point higher, if I could be assured of not being in the back of the fairground near the railroad. We camped at Elkhart County Fairgrounds in a Fifth Wheel.

West Branch State Park, Ravenna, Ohio

Date of Stay: April, 2012 - $33.00
Overall Rating:

This is one of our favorite parks. It is a beautiful setting and reasonably priced. Our site backed up to the lake - beautiful views from our RV windows. Separate loops for pets and non-pet campers. Easy access in the park with our large RV, but the other review about traveling to the park from the north and the bridge was exactly right. We bottomed out on the bridge and were worried about the possibility of serious damage. Use the other entrance. We would certainly stay here again. We camped at West Branch State Park in a Motorhome.

Grandfather Campground, Banner Elk, North Carolina

Date of Stay: April, 2012 - $24.00
Overall Rating:

This park is just barely accessible for big rigs. Very steep gravel driveway / road leading to upper sites with big ruts beside drive from recent rains made it difficult to negotiate turns. Lower level sites a combination of sparse gravel and mostly mud, close together, difficult to back into, no landscaping other than patches of grass and more dirt / mud, and under old trees that would worry me ref: falling limbs and debris. Gravel pull through sites on the upper level were far from level, required several leveling blocks on one side of RV. Seasonal units in park didn't look very well kept. Office staff was unenthusiastic and indifferent. Bathrooms were old, dirty, and disgusting, no way I would use them. Bath house looked newer and was just OK in condition and cleanliness. The park was nearly empty when we stayed so the views of the upper field and mountains were very pretty, that's the only nice thing I can say about this park. Rate reflects weekly stays. We would not stay here again (or at the other campground nearby on 105 which looked worse). We camped at Grandfather Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Charlottesville KOA, Charlottesville, Virginia

Date of Stay: April, 2012 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

A very nicely kept RV park run by a very friendly younger couple who are making steady progress in upgrading and improving the park. Utilities worked well, not much chance at satellite service but their cable selection was pretty good. Access to and in the park was easy for our larger RV (follow directions to the park provided by campground). Bathrooms and showers very clean. Dead quiet at night, made it easy to get a good night's sleep. Very close to Monticello. Cell phone service is very weak, unreliable, and worked only occasionally in this park for both Verizon and AT&T. Campground's WiFi is strange, no password required but you have to manually log on via a campground web page prior to using and then it kicks you off after an hour or two and you have to go through the process again, makes for not very enjoyable usage and nearly impossible for use with a smartphone. For a few days we would stay here again. If we were staying for more than a few days we would look elsewhere where we could get satellite, cell, and better internet service. We camped at Charlottesville KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Huntington / Fox Fire KOA, Milton, West Virginia

Date of Stay: April, 2012 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

Choices in this area are few and far between. This is a very nicely kept RV park run by a very friendly couple who have obviously put a lot of work into making this park the gem that it is. Utilities worked well and access to and in the park was easy for our larger RV. Bathrooms, showers, and laundry rooms were spotless and looked new. Good Wi-Fi internet service. There is no swimming pool but the lake has a beach, with platform in the center, and looks like a lot of fun for kids (or adults who may be kids at heart!) to swim in. It is close to the highway if your space is in the back of the park, but we were in front part and noticed very little highway noise. We will certainly stay here again. We camped at Huntington / Fox Fire KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Smoky Bear Campground, Gatlinburg, Tennessee

Date of Stay: April, 2012 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

A super clean and very nicely landscaped RV park with nice amenities. Lots of beautiful flowers. Friendly owners who treated us more like guests than customers and utilities all worked well. Access to and in the park was easy for our larger RV if you listen to the park owners directions ref: getting to the park. Park faculties (paved roads, pool, etc) were all in very good condition. Super clean restrooms. Reasonably sized and nicely landscaped sites. Only downside: its a bit of a drive to most Smokey Mountain attractions and the most popular National Park areas, but we expected that in order to be away from the crowds and noise at the end of the day. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Smoky Bear Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Mayberry Campground, Mount Airy, North Carolina

Date of Stay: April, 2012 - $34.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed at this park several times on our way to and from Florida and have had good experiences until this last stay. We decided to stay for a week and were prepared to pay the website listed weekly rate and were promptly told the website was wrong, prices are now $33.50 a night not the $30 that was advertised. Staying a week we did get one night free but the bait-and-switch tactics left me with a bad taste in my mouth. The park has easy access for travelers, utilities work well (except for cable, which was snowy during the entire week), and the grounds are decent. At $33.50 I think Mayberry is overpriced for the amenities, or lack thereof, that they offer. No pool, no community room, etc. I don't know if we would stay again, only because there aren't many other options in the area. We camped at Mayberry Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Bill Frederick Park at Turkey Lake, Orlando, Florida

Date of Stay: March, 2012 - $24.00

This is a great park and a spectacular value! Beautiful setting, gated and secure, and reasonably priced. Not 10 minutes to Universal Studios! Access to and in the park was easy for our larger RV. Staff was friendly and we enjoyed walking around the park's nature trails and the lake. One of our favorite parks. Clean and attractive sites and park grounds. We would definitely return.

Twin Oaks RV Park & Campground, Elko, Georgia

Date of Stay: March, 2012 - $23.00
Overall Rating:

A decent RV park with a low weekly rate. Roads and sites are gravel and all are level and with patios and picnic tables. Staff was friendly and utilities worked well. Access to and in the park was easy for our larger RV. There was some road noise (big trucks slowing / engine braking to enter the highway) and regardless of what the staff says unless you are in one of the front pull through sites near the office you will not get satellite signal. If we could reserve one of the front pull through sites we would stay again; if not, we would stay elsewhere. We camped at Twin Oaks RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Cedar Key RV Resort, Cedar Key, Florida

Date of Stay: March, 2012 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

After looking at all of the others this is the only campground we would consider staying at near Cedar Key. A very nicely kept RV park with nice amenities. Friendly staff , utilities worked well, and we had a clear view for satellite and the weekly rate was cheap. Access to and in the park was super easy for our larger RV. Park faculties (roads, pool, etc) were all in like new condition. Beautiful, large, and nicely landscaped sites. Very few seasonal units and the few that are here are immaculately kept. We walked and drove through the other RV parks near Cedar Key and they are all cramped with small sites and a drab and dumpy feel. In my opinion, this is the only decent place to stay near Cedar Key. Dead quiet at night, I have rarely slept as good in a campground. Nicely kept, a cheap price, what more could you want? Only downside: its a 30 minute drive for groceries / Walmart, but that was a very minor nuisance for us. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Cedar Key RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground, Lake Buena Vista, Florida

Date of Stay: March, 2012 - $100.00
Overall Rating:

Disney magic and everything about the campground (roads, pools, bath houses) are in like new condition. Lots of Disney style activities at the park (nightly movies, campfire sing-along, etc) and the swimming pools are awesome. If you are staying here you know its not gonna be cheap but its a great Disney experience and by staying onsite at Disney you get to enjoy the extra magic hours at the various parks. Only two issues diminished the Disney magic during our stay; (1) all campground sites are back-in sites. If you are traveling in a larger RV do not book the standard site. I could have never gotten into our site without the help of a very experienced neighbor who took 20 minutes to help guide me into our site. Once in the site it was adequate in size and very nicely landscaped, but when we visit again we will pay the extra for the premium site. Also, (2) we were placed in a pet loop and I have no idea why. We do not have pets, and generally have no problems with other pets, but our neighbors during this stay had 2 dogs and set up a portable fence right up to the side of our RV site. Their dogs barked at the sun, barked at the moon, barked at people walking by, barked at cars driving by, barked at golf carts passing by, barked at the wild turkeys in the campground, they barked, and barked, and barked. Miserable coming back late from extra magic hours at the parks and being woken at the crack of dawn by the barking. We would definitely stay here again, but in a premium site in a non-pet loop. NOTE: I guesstimated the nightly price of our stay using the rate sheet at the campground concierge desk. Our stay was inclusive of the campground, park passes, and meal plan, so I don't know exactly what our specific breakdown was. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
