RE: Newbies, Cape Cod w/ small Dog, mid-May

Another vote for Atlantic Oaks. Down the street from the Campground is Salt Pond and Salt Pond Bay, great for Kayaking. We bring our own kayaks but I would guess there might be rentals near by, might ask the campground. Mike

RE: Need help want to go North for the 4th maybe Maine

Check out the Old Orchard Beach area in southern Maine. The area is VERY popular with campers/rvers. Old Orchard Beach Campgrounds & Scarborough Beach Campgrounds lots to do to keep the family occupied , Beach, amusement parks, water parks, board walks, great seafood. Of the campgrounds that we have been to, Bayley's camping resort has the most bell & whistles, has a trolley to take you to the beach. Paradise Park camping resort is some what quieter and closer to the beach. Hid'n Pines family campground is good too. All the campgrounds are well run and get good reviews. We have enjoyed all the campgrounds for what they offer. Also take a day trip to near by Perkins cove Mike

RE: Point Sebago, Maine

Hello, Anyone ever hear of or go to Point Sebago Resorts in Maine? If so, what do you think of the place. Do you know of any other family orientated places in that area that have activities for kids? Thanks! http://www.rvparkreviews.com/regions/maine/casco/point-sebago-rv-resort

RE: Watkins Glen, NY which campground to choose for next summer

If you hit the Glen when there's a race, I'll bet the SP is rowdy. Clute is ok, but the transient area is a little tight. The lake is right across the street and there's a nice park to sit in. Walmart is in walking distance. Not sure why you ruled out the KOA, but the spots in the back are quiet and well appointed. Here's the thread I posted after staying in Clute this summer. I thought the rates at the KOA were to steep. Thanks for your link on Clute! Mike Come to find out my sister & cousin will be joining us on this trip. Seems after telling them all of what the area has to offer they are willing to try "camping" for the first time in about 40 years. So I went back to researching the KOA and found they do offer "basic" full hookups, prices still more than we would have liked to pay for but more manageable than the $70 to $80 per night. And of course my sister and cousin will be booking the deluxe cabins, for them that's camping! :B Mike

RE: planing this years vacation

Instead of Bar Harbor Maine where the water is absolutely frigid, in southern ME check into the Old Orchard Beach area. I would go in early AUG as the water sometimes peaks out at 70 degrees. The area is VERY popular with campers/rvers. Old Orchard Beach Campgrounds & Scarborough Beach Campgrounds lots to do to keep the family occupied , Beach, amusement parks, water parks, board walks, great seafood. Bayley's camping resort has the most bell & whistles, has a trolley to take you to the beach. Paradise Park camping resort is some what quieter and closer to the beach. Hid'n Pines family campground is good too. All the campgrounds are well run and get good reviews. We have been to all and enjoyed our self's for what they offer. Also take a day trip to near by Perkins cove Mike

RE: Turning Stone NY

I don't remember anything about the campground that we were disappointed with. They have a nice stocked bass pond, bring a pole & line. Oneida Lake is worth a day trip. Cooperstown is about 45 minutes away. Have fun! Mike

RE: finding rv parks and rv resorts

I will be going on a long trip this summer and it will be my first time I would like to know hope to find rv parks and resorts along the route I will take. I'll be going from California to Washington/Port Angeles. I will be on I-5 to the city of Olympia. Then I will take Hwy 101 up to Port Angeles. Thanks for any help. Rv Park Reviews has an excellent park locator. Just click on the state, look for the largest numbered dots in the overall area that you have an interest in. As you start to magnify you will be able map in on the campgrounds in the particular place you looking for. All the campgrounds are linked to reviews and google maps. Mike

RE: nc outer banks campgrounds

Are the wild horses in the Hatteras area or does one have to go north to Assateague island area to see them? And if they are in the Hatteras area, where? And if we go north, what's the preferred campgrounds with electrict view such animals? thanks I'm not aware of any wild horses at the OBX But they are at Assateague State Park in MD. Loop H has the W/E sites. Book NOW if you hope to find anything. http://www.reserveamerica.com Mike

RE: nc outer banks campgrounds

Yup, finding shade or trees out at the OBX is going to be tough, sticking straight out in the Atlantic ocean and being in the cross hairs of most storms & hurricanes Mike

RE: nc outer banks campgrounds

If your looking for a full service campground with all the bells & whistles, we enjoyed our stay at Camp Hatteras RV Resort & Campground. Plenty to do between charter fishing, Jet ski rentals, Wright Brothers Museum and of course beach time! :C Mike

RE: Northeast RV Shows

We have been going to the Springfield RV Show for over 10 yrs, show is awesome! From what I have been told it's the largest in New England. Has 3 buildings dedicated for the show. $9 to get in with coupon. Cost $ to park too. Mike

RE: Tough driveway to back into

watching your video reminds me why I hate those evil gas station dips which I always manage to find. :R I have been fortunate where we have had level driveways on our last 3 house and the trailers we have owned have been low riders. Thanks for sharing Mike

RE: Powerball, now 1.3 BILLION!

I will admit, DW bought 1 ticket and will probably buy another for the next round. With this said we don't gamble. My feeling on this is you stand a better chance of having something awful happen so why temp fate, again it's only a feeling. Mike

RE: 2004 Jayco Jayfeather 23B

As mentioned above, check the floor for spongy spots or discoloration of the linoleum floor. The exterior walls for signs of d-lamination, especially by the bunk end doors where they hinge out. Check the caulking on the roof, at that age some sort of maintenance should have been done by now. My 2 cents, any sign of water damage I would walk away. Mike

RE: Campground Recommendatons - Pittsburgh & New York

Stayed at Liberty Harbour RV park in Jersey City. Definitely urban camping. Water and elec hookup with dump station. You can't camp any closer than this to Manhattan. Views of the Statue of Liberty from your RV. I will 2nd this! We stayed there two years ago and getting into and out of NYC was easy, cheap and we felt very safe going and coming. We stayed in the city several times until late at night (early morning) and the walk from the PATH was about 3 blocks and there were always people out walking dogs, etc. (High end residential area). It sure beat catching buses, transferring and then getting on the train, then subway. From LH, you catch the PATH and it will take you to the WTC (World Trade Center) or 33rd St (Times Square area), for less than $3/person. Getting into and out of the campground was easy - only one tight turn and that was because of construction. The rest of it was on the freeway, which was okay, but not something I would want to do everyday. There are restaurants near the PATH entrance and a restaurant at the marina, but we didn't use it. There were security guards in/around the marina 24 hrs a day. There is also a Water taxi that goes from the marina (campground) to Wall St. every hour or so, but it's about $8.00 each way, per person. I walked 3 blocks and saved $10 per person each day. X3 on Liberty Harbor Views of the Freedom Tower from your Rv are not to shabby either! Mike

RE: Why do campgrounds not post rates on their own websites

There are other ways to find the price, for instance rvparkreviews.com. When you submit a review, the price you paid is one of the data points. You just need to be aware that if they stayed off season, then you're seeing the off season price. Most reviewers will mention if the price reflected a PA or GS discount. X2 I was researching a KOA in NY that didn't have the posted rates, after seeing $80+ per night for WES on RVPR I decided to data enter date & length of stay on the KOA web site. I found some basic WES sites with a more manageable price of $55 per night. The reviews didn't mention the sites reserved were deluxe sites... there will always be situations were research is needed.

RE: MPG loss carrying Canoe on TV?

My gas millage is awful with or without our kayaks, never noticed a difference. In the big picture of things just go for it! :C https://scontent-iad3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xaf1/v/t1.0-9/11811581_859698060793924_596966727976946300_n.jpg?oh=abf0f63ab87455425b3ed1194ffed320&oe=571E2CF7 height=400 width=800 Mike
