RE: East Coast Road Trip - 2015 - Beginning Planning

Both Camp Hatteras and the KOA on the Outer Banks have been rebuilt since I last stayed there. At that time, Camp Hatteras edged out the KOA because of better sites. Not sure since the rebuilds, though. I don't think you'll go wrong with either. X2 Mike

RE: Camping Suggestion About 4 Hours From NYC?

2 campgrounds that I can think of, both are probably close to your 4hr limit. Normandy Farms in Foxboro MA and Cherrystone Campground in VA If it were me I would consider 1st cherrystone, place is just awesome, your kids will have a blast crabbing on the docks. Both campgrounds have every bell & whistle under the sun Mike

RE: Lake In Wood RV Resort - PA

This past weekend we stayed at Lake In Wood RV Resort,Narvon, PA. It had been many many years since we had stayed here, so my memory from that initial visit is very faded. For this trip, we had made our reservations in February for our July trip. Site had to be paid in full at time of reservations, and as we were meeting family there, we wanted to be close and thus made our reservations the same time they did. Upon arrival, you enter the park to a small parking area with a control gate. A sign telling you NOT to block the gate when registering, which requires you to pull to the side, thus blocking any cars parked in the slots. With a 35 ft travel trailer and Crew cab truck, this is alot of spots I am blocking. When I went in to register, I informed them that I had failed to ask for my Good Sam discount when I made the reservation. She said it was too late, and anyway, since I was only there for a weekend, the discount did not apply. They do honor the discount for Sun-Thur stays only as they are not even a Good Sam Park. Upon arriving at our site, it was a very tight fit and with large boulders lining the street, made negotiating into the site a magic act. At 136.00 for a 2 night stay, you would expect at least on site trash pickup? There was one dumpster near by with a sign warning of "Kitchen trash only - Your on camera". Our last dismay was with their participation with Recycling. Taking the hayride thru the park we only found 2 small recycle bins bear the office. We asked a member of management and they concurred those are the only two spots. We opted to take ours home as it would have filled the tiny bin. This campground is listed in Trailer Life Directory as 10/10/10. As mentioned earlier, Post a review on RV Park Reviews. Site is dedicated solely for RVers, over 210K RV reviews in their data base.

RE: Lake Compounce / Six Flags New England Camping

Didn't Lake Compounce just open there new campground this month? Yes, https://www.lakecompounce.com/bearcreek We just took a drive through the campground today, some things we liked and some not... some of the good were huge showers/ bathrooms. Rv sites have water, electric, cable with 50 amp service available, large pull through sites. some of the not so good was the sites are set up where you will be looking directly at your camping neighbor... no privacy! Secondly dump station is elevated at least 1ft off the ground and as we all know water doesn't flow up hill very good, I did talk to them, they did say they were planning on fixing it...guess we'll see... Campground has been open only for a couple of weeks so hopefully there working out the bugs. Mike

RE: Campground Customer Satisfaction Surveys-who reads them?

KOA sends surveys to the camper after they leave. Who reads the completed survey? Does the KOA executive office read it or only the owner of that particular KOA campground? What if the campground is privately owned? I stayed at a Chattanooga KOA that was the worst! All in my party thought so too. Will they contact the unhappy camper? Will they do anything to fix the problems? My advice, instead of filling out a KOA survey, just post a review on RV Park Reviews this way you will be helping everyone in the Rving Community Mike

RE: How do I find fun parks like this one??!!!

RVera in New Iberia LA got a nasty review from me on rvparkreviews but it doesn't seem to have been posted yet. They seem to be running well behind on getting reviews up. Yeah because of the heavy volumes they get behind during the summer months, usually I'm waiting close to a week for a review to get posted. Mike

RE: Provincetown, MA-curious

We did a day trip last summer, didn't notice anything that looked seedy. As mentioned before, lots of arts & crafts shops. One thing though, stay away from the restaurants close to the wharf area. We had one of the worse EVER meals in our lives!! Mike

RE: Looking for spot in MA or RI

Salisbury Beach State Reservation in MA, access to 2 beaches, pets allowed, fishing. Fisherman's Memorial State park & Campground, in RI. Both are going to be tough to find a site in the summer months but you do stand a better chance on finding a site after labor day. Also in RI is a new resort campground that has just opened, might want to check this out too. http://www.ashawayrvresort.com/index.html Mike

RE: Bad Campground Neighboor

Depending on the situation, if the campground had emptied out and the jerk camper was right next to me, I might very well just leave also - telling the Rangers on the way out why I am leaving. Unless I knew the Rangers would kick the jerk out, I don't think I would be able to sleep easily with them next to me after reporting them. I'm with you on this one. I have had a few bad experiences with the other person getting even louder and more obnoxious after they knew I reported them. I changed campsites to get away from rowdy campers that got rowdier and more directed at us after the management asked them to quite down. Needless to say I have never returned to that campground. Yeah, was in a similar situation years ago. depends weather the establishment is enforcing their own policies and security. The place we were at wasn't, short story, owners did nothing to remove the jerks and everyone (there was a whole bunch of other camping families which including us) ended up leaving. Mike.

RE: 10th Annual Fall Friendship Gathering 10/10-10/13/2014 @ OMS

Just read on a review that the famous "T" sites are now gone! I guess each site now has its own individual back in. Mike

RE: Had first accident!

Sorry to hear about that, good to read your insurance is taking care of it. I've read many time about people having trouble getting in/out of rv sites but seems (for me at least) the gas stations have the most hazards, from the obvious lack of space, battling traffic to pull in or out to those brutal entrance and exit dips that love to bottom out the trailer.
