Tom's Cove Park, Chincoteague, Virginia

Date of Stay: May, 2016 - $58.00
Overall Rating:

This large park has good facilities. The spacious grass sites were a bit muddy after heavy rains. The amount paid is with no discounts; only cash or checks are accepted. The above price is with tax and seemed high for offseason. Reservations are made only by going to the web site, printing out a form and mailing it with a $40 check, but staff will tell you how full it is expected to be by phone. Permanent and seasonals are separated from the short-timers. Wi-Fi was faultless but the short-time part of the park had only a few customers. Camp store is very well stocked. Fishing permitted off the park's dock. Some days the wild ponies can be seen with binoculars from the dock. We camped at Tom's Cove Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge is a short car ride away and not to be missed. The wild ponies are restricted to a portion of the Refuge and can be seen easily by auto. Bring binoculars. Paths are paved and open to bicycles. The Wildlife Circle is restricted to foot and bicycle until 3 p.m. each day. Birds and other wildlife were few and far between in mid-May but an eagle family was in residence.

Hatteras Sands Resort, Hatteras, North Carolina

Date of Stay: May, 2016 - $47.00
Overall Rating:

This is an okay park, except beware of the white unthreaded pipes next to the water & electric at "full hookup" sites. If you put your sewer hose into one and let loose, you will create a mess as you try to dump into a water cutoff valve. Makes starting with a little bit of grey water to make sure all's well an even more important practice. Hatteras Villages charges for "full" hookups because an employee comes around occasionally with a honey wagon. Other than that, this place in the middle of Hatteras has narrow and short paved sites and sporadic WiFi. While the cost is relatively high, you're on the Outer Banks and near such landmarks as the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse. The only "resort" feature noted was a swimming pool, empty in early May. We camped at Hatteras Sands Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

There are no supermarkets worthy of the name within 60 miles so stock up before you arrive. The Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum is worth a couple hours on a rainy afternoon but a lot of the exhibits are only tangentially related to the graveyard theme, e.g., a history of scuba diving instruction and equipment, the sportfishing industry, etc.

Cedar Creek Campground & Marina, Sea Level, North Carolina

Date of Stay: April, 2016 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

This is a place to overnight before taking the Cedar Island Ferry to Cape Hatteras, or if you're a fanatic fisherman. It is not a resort: the pool is closed permanently and any other amenities that may have existed in the past (batting cage, etc.) are no longer in service. About half of the park is occupied seasonally/permanently by older units apparently used by weekend fishers. It has a boat launch and dockside gasoline ($3.30/gal in April 2016). Mosquito season was well underway at the end of April with spraying by the county predicted to happen soon. The owners are a charming and helpful couple who have lived on the site for 40 years. Reservations are highly recommended for the Cedar Island Ferry as is arrival an hour or so before departure. Reservations are cancelled 30 minutes before departure. Our trip at 10:30 a.m. on a Sunday morning was full. Loading a 40' motorhome with toad attached cost $45 but was no problem with crew guidance. The trip from the RV park was only 8 miles but took a half hour so allow enough time. We camped at Cedar Creek Campground & Marina in a Motorhome.

Oak Plantation Campground, Charleston, South Carolina

Date of Stay: April, 2016 - $48.00
Overall Rating:

This large commercial campgound has just about everything a camper could want: large spaces, full hookups, level sites, propane, friendly staff, etc. It is on U.S. 17, resulting in some road noise for anyone sleeping with open windows. Also, a few trains can be faintly heard during the night. Oak trees abound but many sites are satellite-friendly. Sand fleas and mosquitoes were present early in the evening. The owners have put up six WiFi sites but internet access was sporadic during times of heavy use. Most pads are sand but a few are concrete. Our sandy spot was level. Park is a 10-mile drive away from historic downtown Charleston. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Tour buses, horse-drawn carriages and pedicabs abound but a self-directed walking tour can be the best way to experience the dense old town. Don't miss the government ferry to Fort Sumter National Monument. Touring Fort Moultrie is less exciting for anyone who is not into the history of coastal fortifications. Good food at Gaulart & Maliclet, a relatively cheap fast french foot restaurant downtown with bar stool seating, and Swig & Swine, smoked barbecue 7 miles east of the campgrounds.

Skidaway Island State Park, Savannah, Georgia

Date of Stay: April, 2016 - $37.00
Overall Rating:

Skidaway is a heavily-forested campground with mostly water and electric sites; Spots are allocated on a first-come basis. All are pull throughs. The few full hookup locations are booked months in advance. Rangers will identify the couple of sites open enough for satellite TV. Our space was level. Downtown Savannah is a short drive. Tour buses will pick up at the park. The only wildlife seen on a short hike were birds, squirrels and a couple raccoons. We camped at Skidaway Island State Park in a Motorhome.

Old Savannah is worth a couple days' touring. Tour buses are hop-on, hop-off, and a ride through town will help map out which of the many museums and old houses you will want to visit on foot. Bee's Barbecue near the park should not be missed by anyone who likes smoked pork and beef.

Fort McAllister State Park, Richmond Hill, Georgia

Date of Stay: April, 2016 - $39.00
Overall Rating:

This Civil War-oriented park has heavily-forested sites, mostly pull-though, with 30 amp electricity and water. Most have no sewers; the few sites with sewers are booked months in advance. Otherwise, site selection is up to the camper. Satellite TV is unavailable but OTA will pick up all networks from Savanah local stations. Verizon service was okay but no WiFi.

Programs in April, 2016, included Uniforms of the Confederacy; Civil War Surgery, Civil War Military Drilling as well as several back to the 19th Century programs such as "Coastal Native American Hunting." The camp host displays a Confederate Battle Flag at his site.

The nightly price includes a one-day park fee of $5. Non-residents over 62 get a 5% discount. We camped at Fort McAllister State Park in a Motorhome.

High Falls State Park, Jackson, Georgia

Date of Stay: October, 2015 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

This quiet state park has only 13 pull throughs. It is easily accessible from Interstate 75. Most sites are heavily wooded but park staff will identify the few with a decent chance for satellite TV if you ask; after that the customer picks the site on a first-come basis. The $28 price reflects a 20% senior citizen discount but not a one-time $5 charge for a park pass, making High Falls relatively expensive for a camp with no WiFi and hookups only for electricity and water. There is a dump site on the way out. We camped at High Falls State Park in a Motorhome.

Bosque Birdwatchers RV Park, San Antonio, New Mexico

Date of Stay: October, 2015 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

This bare-bones park's claims to fame are the nearby Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge and in-town restaurants featuring green chile cheeseburgers. Its also a couple hours' drive to the Very Large Array of radio telescopes in the New Mexico desert. The Refuge is a birdwatcher's winter paradise with a Festival of the Cranes annually the week before Thanksgiving. The RV Park has full hookups and little else; the sites aren't even numbered. The picnic tables are old cable spools. We camped at Bosque Birdwatchers RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The Buckhorn Tavern advertises itself as "#7 in America". Its very spicy green chile cheesburger once beat Bobby Flay's version in a Food Channel throwdown. The Owl Bar & Cafe across the street has a similar product it claims was a favorite of "prospectors" during World War II (actually scientists and engineers working on the world's first atomic bomb at the nearby Trinity Site). Beers have names such as "Isotope" and "Alien". The timid may order the green chile on the side.

Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta Park, Albuquerque, New Mexico

Date of Stay: October, 2015 - $150.00
Overall Rating:

The $150 a night rate gets you a spot in the temporary "Presidential" campground with water, 30 amp electric, and a few visits from the honey wagon depending on how long you stay. The site is on a bluff overlooking the entire 55-football-field-large launching area for 500+ hot air balloons during the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta, but you will be a few rows back from the front rank as sponsors and VIPs get the first row. Don't miss the early-morning flight preparations with balloons lit up by their propane burners as they prepare for flight. Suggest watching one mass launch from the restricted-access bluff (bring folding chairs), then going down on the field the next day to mingle with the crowd of spectators and balloonists as the craft are prepared for launch. Amazingly, some balloons are able to use winds in different directions at different heights to return to the launch site after a few hours in the air. There are mid-week contests best seen from on the field as balloonists try to throw weighted bags at targets, etc. Weather permitting, hundreds of balloons launch around 7 a.m. each morning, with the biggest mass ascensions on weekends and Wednesday of Fiesta Week. If the Balloon Fiesta is on your Bucket List, staying at the Presidential Campground is the way to see it. Other cites near the Fiesta are all dry camping. We camped at Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta Park in a Motorhome.

Balloon rides are available but most expensive (over $400) on weekends during the mass launches. The weekday events attract several hundred balloons and rides cost less. On weekday afternoons, it's easy to drive in and out of the Balloon Park for groceries, side trips, etc.

Dancing Eagle RV Park, Casa Blanca, New Mexico

Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $10.00
Overall Rating:

Can't beat the price for this full hookup spot adjoining a Casino about 50 miles west of Albuquerque even though it was a bit muddy. Some sites too uneven to level a motorhome. No pressure to patronize the Casino. We camped at Dancing Eagle RV Park in a Motorhome.

Sundance RV Park, Cortez, Colorado

Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $37.00
Overall Rating:

This in-town park is heavily wooded, with only a couple satellite-friendly sites but the very friendly managers will work to get you what you need. Most spots are back-in. WiFi was problematical. A Visitors Center, with information about Mesa Verde N.P. and other attractions is across the street and it's an easy walk to restaurants and stores. Pepperhead Restaurant had excellent southwestern fare and unique margaritas. Cortez is at the heart of Native American cliff dwelling territory with Mesa Verde N.P. the main draw. A nearby Anasazi Heritage Center adds perspective and there are walking trails in the Escalante Ruins. We camped at Sundance RV Park in a Motorhome.

The Mesa Verde National Park main entrance is about three miles east of town but the main part is a 16-mile switchback-filled drive into the park. Tickets for ranger-led tours of cliff dwellings are available at the park's Visitor Center or the other visitor center in town. Allow more than one day to get a full sampling of Mesa Verde.

Tiger Run RV Resort, Breckenridge, Colorado

Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $75.00
Overall Rating:

High price comes from being only available commercial RV park in the area. Tiger Run is a RV condo with some spots rented on behalf of absent owners. It has many recreational facilities that short-termers will probably not use, including heated pool, tennis, volleyball, etc. Blue River sites are along a babbling brook but get a lot of traffic noise from SR9 on the other side of the river.
