Boston / Cape Cod KOA, Middleboro, Massachusetts

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $55.00
Overall Rating:

We didn't spend much time at the park, but we have been here before and nothing has changed. Got a back-in spot right by the bathhouse. Surprising, things were pretty quiet, so no real noise complaints from us. We were in town for a family event, and this campground is centrally located for that. Easy enough, also, to get into Boston for a Red Sox game (which we did), or down to Bourne (entrance to Cape Cod) for some lobster (quite excellent, by the way, and reasonably priced -- two 1-1/4 pounders for $32). This KOA is well-maintained and staff is exceedingly friendly. Makes everyone feel right at home. I recommend this campground and will stay here anytime I'm in the Boston/Cape Cod area. We camped at Boston / Cape Cod KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The Lobster Trap in Bourne, Mass. About a 30 min. drive down to the Cape. Two 1-1/4 pounders for $32, and seafood bisque is excellent. Closer in Middleboro, try Harry's but if the lot is full (and it probably will be), Dave's Diner, right across the street is pretty good, too.

JBSA Fort Sam Houston RV Park (Military FamCamp), Fort Sam Houston Army Post, Texas

Date of Stay: April, 2016 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

I stayed here nine nights while in San Antonio. I called for a reservation, and I'm glad I did: The park was half-empty when I arrived, but filled up quickly.
Sites are level, all are pull-through and concrete. There are trees between sites, but no shade. There is enough space between sites to be neighborly, but I never felt encroached. The nature of the clientele -- active duty or retired military -- also contributed to an enjoyable, quiet atmosphere. No loud partying at all. On the other hand, freight trains come through regularly -- sometimes at late hours -- and announce their arrivals/departures with their whistles, but I'm a sound sleeper, so it didn't really bother me.
Another drawback is the remote location of the park on Fort Sam. Combined with the 20-30 mph speed limit on post, it can make getting around a leisurely experience.
Finally, Fort Sam has a number of gates that used to be open, but are now permanently closed -- something my Garmin GPS didn't know. You'll have to be aware of that during your maneuvers.
One of the cool things about staying here was the Army's tradition of bugle calls. You'll hear Reveille at 6, To The Colors at the end of the duty day, Taps at 11 and several others throughout the day. Suffice to say, you won't be getting *that* experience at just any RV park.
Staff in the office is friendly and quite attentive to whatever needs you might have. I asked to stay an extra couple of days, and was initially told no, but she called me back and said she could make it happen!
I highly recommend Fort Sam's RV park. I'd give it a 10 if it weren't for those trains at 11 at night. Still, I would definitely return on any return trip to San Antonio. We camped at JBSA Fort Sam Houston RV Park (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Convenient to San Antonio's many attractions. Call early to reserve for the busy times of the year: Stock Show & Rodeo (Feb. 2017) and Fiesta (April). The gas station by the main gate accommodates RVs, but doesn't offer diesel. It pumps slow, though, so be prepared for awkward Will-You-Be-Much-Longer? looks from the other patrons. The other gas station on post sells diesel (I was told), but I drove by it a few times and it didn't look like big rigs would be able to fit underneath.

Dripping Springs RV Park, Dripping Springs, Texas

Date of Stay: December, 2015 - $1.00
Overall Rating:

The point of this posting is to alert everyone that Dripping Springs RV Park is, for now, more of a trailer park -- permanent residents -- than an RV park catering to those who are just passing through. I went by Dec.23 to reserve a site for a visit in the spring. Said I wanted to stay a week or 10 days. Was told that wouldn't be long enough for them, that the park caters to long-term, permanent residents. Couldn't go in for a drive-through tour ... there is a locked gate with keypad access to the campground. From what I could see from the gate, the park was pretty full, sites looked (from a distance) level and comfortably close together, with not a whole lot of shade. Well-maintained by what I could see. We camped at Dripping Springs RV Park in a Motorhome.

Shenandoah River State Park, Bentonville, Virginia

Date of Stay: October, 2015 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

We're staying here for a couple of nights to get out of the city and recharge. We're in the campground in an RV. Nicely laid out ... sites not too close together. Back-in sites appear to be more level than the pull-throughs. 35 sits available. 10 more tent camping sites available on the river. Take in one beautiful spot -- perfect for watching a sunset -- at Culler's Overlook overlooking the Massanutten Mountains. Lots of trails to hike, and there's a new zipline, too. Also a boat ramp for launching canoes & kayaks, but nothing bigger. Convenient to the northernmost entrance to the Skyline Drive and Shenandoah National Park ... about eight miles to the north near Front Royal, Va. A number of wineries are in the area, too. We camped at Shenandoah River State Park in a Motorhome.

Boston / Cape Cod KOA, Middleboro, Massachusetts

Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $47.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed here twice while attending family events (and visiting Maine in between). The park itself is very nice. Lots of woods & shade. Lots of kids, but still relatively quiet. An enjoyable place to stay. Both times we stayed in the wooded area at the far back area of the campground.

However, I 'd suggest you check your site before settling in. At our first site, the sewer connection was UPHILL from where the RV could be parked, making it unusable (since, you know, stuff doesn't flow uphill). During our second visit, there was no way we could level the RV ... there was just too much slope on the site. The motorhomes on either side of us were jack up so high that both front wheels were completely off the ground. Ours were, too, but there was still a distinct down angle toward the front of the coach. Enough to be noticeable. Next time we visit we'll stay in another part of the campground where the sites looked to be more level. We camped at Boston / Cape Cod KOA in a Motorhome.

Timberland Acres RV Park, Trenton, Maine

Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $33.00
Overall Rating:

This is an older RV park, but it is clean and well-maintained. Most of the shady part of the park appears to be seasonal customers. We are near where most short-termers are likely to find themselves. Much of that are generous pull-though spots out in the open.

We are finally here, after having to cancel an earlier visit when our RV wasn't ready to be on the road. The nice folks at Timberland Acres allowed us to cancel -- and without paying a cancellation penalty. So they were the first RV park we thought of when we were finally able to make the trek north to Maine. I had read reviews about the open fields, so we asked ahead of time for something shady -- and have a wonderful pull-through spot! So thank you for that, Timberland Acres!

Zero complaints so far. The two ladies who checked us in couldn't have been nicer. We're here at the end of September to see Bar Harbor & Acadia Nat. Park, so don't have a need for organized activities. A couple of pluses: the dumpsters are next to recycling stations, so kudos for that.

While other RV parks are closer to Bar Harbor and Acadia, Timberland has this going for it: It is equidistant from a Super Walmart, grocery stores, an auto parts place and other shopping, as well as assorted restaurants in Trenton. All are west of the campground. In the other direction is Trenton Bridge Lobster Pond, a great place to order those crustaceans. Reasonable prices east or west.

A suggestion for RVers coming in from I-95. You'll pass a few gas stations right after you get off the Interstate. Stop at one of them and fill up. Doesn't matter which one. They all charge the same. But the gas there will be 10 cents a gallon cheaper (for unleaded) than you'll find as you get in Trenton and Bar Harbor. We camped at Timberland Acres RV Park in a Motorhome.
