RE: Connecticut closing state campgrounds after the 4th of July

IMO with the exception of western ct and some pocket areas of the state many of the communities have been in a downward spiral for a good 20 years. Some of the towns you pay 5k per year on property taxes on 1250 sqft homes that have devalued 30% since the housing bubble of 2007. Then add all the entitlements, regulatory costs, environmental costs and high taxes on everything and it comes to no surprise why folks are leaving in droves when they get to retirement age. One example on how regulated we are, you cant even buy a regular gas can in CT. The cans have to be spring loaded, locking, anti vapor/drip proof... yikes... :( Mike

RE: RV Park Reviews Forum

And if you do find a way to change your email address you go back to square one as new, so be prepared to NOT be able to post a review until you have submitted several to them for their review before they will allow your reviews to be seen by others. The most stupidest policy I've ever seen.:R That would explain why my recent review wasn't posted. When they changed their format, I had to resign up, and I couldn't get into my old account. as posted earlier, try this link http://www.rvparkreviews.com/docs/contact the more information you can give them the better chance they might be able to help you. :) If I recall 2 yrs ago when RVPR changed to the new web site they did reach out to the major forums with posted links so members can make changes if they were to choose to. The policy for the 2 review minimum has been around for almost 10 yrs. It has been my understanding this was created to reduce the fringe type reviews which IMO devalue all reviews. Mike

RE: Raleigh North Carolina State Fairgrounds Campground Review

Excellent review, looks like a newer campground or at least I noticed a good part of the campground had little shade. I agree about posting reviews on Rv Park reviews. Your review will go much more farther in helping the rv community. From what I have read on their forums and just my understanding, as of now they do not allow professional photography by Rvers to be upload to reviews, I believe one of the reasons is because of difficulty in proving where the source of the photos are coming from.

Nice drone video of the area. That said this is not a campground review. Mike

RE: Tell me about Cape Cod

So we booked the 10:30 AM whale watching cruise on a Friday out of P-town. I suppose we could rent a car somewhere? Any ideas for that? Does Uber work up there? Park somewhere close to P-town and call an Uber? I know Uber works in Chatham MA, My son and has GF used it for transportation from a wedding we attended back to Atlantic oaks campground. Mike

RE: Tell me about Cape Cod

Booked the very last site at Atlantic Oaks and we'll be there for two nights now. You can walk to Arnold's from the campground. (2 buildings away) I believe Arnold's has land lover food also. Maybe it was just bad luck but our worst meal ever was from P town, I will never eat there again... especially the tourist trap restaurants close to the dock area. Mike

RE: Tell me about Cape Cod

How about first encounter beach on the bay side instead. A bowl of ne clam chowder and a lobster roll at Arnold's right on rt 6 in eastham. Enjoy! X2 Atlantic Oaks Campground is down the street, bike path behind the campground, also down the street is Salt Pond and Salt Pond Bay, great for Kayaking! :C Mike

RE: BEST Beach Front (or close to it) Camping on the East Coast

You guys missed the best... Hampton Beach State Park (NH). This one wins hands down! Well, it must be the best since you actually have to wait for someone to die before you can make reservations there. The attractions: only the finest gravel (parking lot style) sites, all 20 of them. 100,000 of your closest friends on any giving weekend to help you calibrate the Beach. As if that wasn't enough to enchant you, should you need to run out and grab some quick supplies at the local store, it's only 2.5 hrs away or 3 miles... Yup, there's nothing like camping at the Beach! Oh! did I forget to mention the first weekend in September is the Seafood festival... You'll get to meet an additional 500,000 more friends. And the quick little trip to the local store is now 4 hrs away. Yup, got to love the beach. I have been in that area, gridlock on the weekends. As your probably aware. Just south is Salisbury Beach State Reservation. Area is not as $$$$$ as Hampton Gated state campground, not as crowded, 2 beaches, Park rangers make routine patrols, traffic much more manageable.

RE: HELP! Wife wants to go camping!!!!

I think an RV park rather than a picnic table might be just the ticket in this situation. I need suggestions of a nice, clean RV park with hook ups in the Greenfield MA area. Price is not an issue....Must be clean and make a great first impression. Any suggestions? THANKS!...Wish me luck! How about a compromise, this campground is a gem! clean country setting, hiking, biking, swimming , tubing. Probably about 1 hr drive from greenfield. Book now W/E sites on south side of campground might be tough to come by with it being this late in the season. Winhall Brook COE Mike

RE: What to use?

I have used this on my fiberglass trailers for the past 16 yrs, works great Mike
mdcamping 06/16/16 05:27pm General RVing Issues

Interesting thoughts on our short weekend. It was a USFS facility. One camp host. No rangers to be seen. No cell service as we are T Mobile customers. In short it was our problem. Could have reported them Saturday morning. Then wondered about retaliation while we wee out fishing. We have been camping many years and this is the new normal. I will not expose my kids to this again yup our situation was similar, no cell phones in those days. though we did stick it out the first night. The following morning very early we pleaded to the owners of the campground (along with 2 other camping family's) to remove the "farm animals" in which the owners refused! So we along with 2 other out of state campers packed up and left. Mike
mdcamping 05/30/16 10:39am General RVing Issues

Our family tradition is to go out camping every Memorial day weekend so we made reservations way in advance. Set up camp last night. Roasting marshmellows with the family when neighbors move in. Stereo cranks. Beers are opened. Kids we don't know are in our site. Tried to polietly , and I really was, ask the neighbors to turn it down as it is suppose to be "quiet time". They told me I picked the wrong campground. Thought about camp hosts but what could they do? Get into a conflict and put drunks out on the road? Not likely. So we packed up and came home. Why can't folks who want to party stay home? Folks just do not care anymore. Very discouraging Sorry to hear about this. Small consolation but we had a similar thing happen to us about 12 yrs ago, so at least your not alone. The positive that I got out of our experience was diligent research through online review sites. Since then we never had a bad camping experience. Trust me all your future camping trips will be fantastic! :C Mike

RE: 1999 fleetwood hybrid rotted floor

This is a repair I did years ago on my old Thor TT which I did a paste & click from another camping forum. The floor was a lauan/styrofoam/lauan sandwich type This leak could be from condensation, Years ago I did a search on the internet when I had the same problem with mine TT and what I found was the moisture wicks up to the top of the floor and if uncorrected will rot under the linoleum. Two things that I did was pull up my linoleum in the front 1/3 of my TT at the end of the camping season and let dry over the winter. Then I sanded the old floor in the spring, put down liquid nails and laid the new floor on top. I also put in wood screws to help secure the new floor onto the old and where my new floor was under my seating I also drilled through the floor and fastened 3/8'' x 4'' ( If I remember ) nuts and bolts around the perimeter of the floor for more extra strength. Second thing I did was to cut out patches of the aluminium underbelly with a dremel cutting wheel and replace with bug screen. This allowed the underbelly to breath and stay relatively dry. I got this tip from a reputable RV mechanic that I know.

RE: Summer trip from Pennsylvania to Maine

Somewhat out of the box here, if staying close to the campground is a priority might look into bearcreak campground in Bristol ct. Convenient stop over on your way to me. Campground is very similar to knobels in pa where as you have a all in one amusement park + campground Mike Lake Compounce:). Going there for a day trip for the first time ever this summer and looking forward to the time. I was at the park (but not the campground, which I think didn't exist at the time) a few years ago. It's quite nice but not overly huge; Knoebels is a bit bigger I think. You should have a good time. Boulderdash is a very fun roller coaster. When I was there, assuming I'm getting amusement parks confused in my mind, they delayed the posted closing by one hour in the evening. I don't know if that's a common occurrence, but I certainly wasn't about to complain! We have done both lake Compounce & Knoebels and have enjoyed both. overall both amusement parks are about equal. knoebels campground is more established whereas 3 year old Bear Creek campground has little shade because of newly planted trees. That said bear creek has easy pull through camping sites that are super large. for me I would choose Knoebels hands down every time. No amusement park entrance fee and all rides are pay per ride if you were to choose to. Much more value at knoebels Of course everything outside of CT has more value... Mike

RE: What are the pitfalls of camping in a Hybrid?

On Our old TT which was so small we slept on the u shaped dinette which every morning we had to break down for the day and in the evening re set up for sleeping. So going to a hybrid where we just set up our bed once and break down once was a huge bonus... yup for us it is glass half full! :C Mike
