RE: Hagerstown-Antietam Battlefield KOA, Williamsport, Maryland

No problems with entrance road but it is like aarondeere described. Place was well kept, clean, friendly staff. Sites on the small side. Overall the campground was worth the visit. Mike

RE: HELP-need CG near Sturbridge, Mass

Good luck and enjoy the area. Wish there were better alternatives close to Sturbridge. Tried to convince the Old Sturbridge Village administration to start on on some perfect land the owned. Nobody listned. I agree, with I84, Old Sturbridge Village and the area being at the half way point for attractions up north, The area would be perfect for a campground. Wish someone would take the initiative and build a nice campground around there, they probable could make a awful lot of money. My two cents also. Mike

RE: Destination RV Resort/Campground/Park

Any particular areas of the country your looking into... east coast or New England? Mike No place in particular, but the northeast is definitely on our list of places wanting to see. Sorry I forgot about my post, I few that I would recommend in NC there's Camp Hatteras RV Resort Campground In the Lake George Area of NY there's Lake George RV Park, Lake George Escape and the newly opened Moose Hillock Camping Resort (moose hillock is family owned and they also have a resort campground in Warren NH) Normandy Farms in Foxboro MA Hope this helps, Mike

RE: Destination RV Resort/Campground/Park

Good morning, We are always looking for new places to relax and have fun especially during the summer. We would like to find a location that is a destination in itself. What we would like to find is a resort/campground/park that we can go to, setup at our site and sit back and relax and not have to leave to find any activities. The wife and I are 40 something empty nesters. We like activities like tennis, bike/walking trails, kayaking, nightly movies, etc. We would like your input for the resort/campground/park that would fit the bill. Can be anywhere and price isn't a problem as long as you get what you pay for. If within walking distance to the beach, restaurants, etc. that would be bonus. We mainly just want to park and not have to drive anywhere to have fun. If the place offered shuttle service to areas of interest then double bonus :) Thanks in advance for your input. John Any particular areas of the country your looking into... east coast or New England? Mike

RE: how to decide on buying a trailer - the dream vs reality

so the wife and I just can't seem to figure this out. we have 3 kids (11, 8, and 5) and just got back from a trip and rented a trailer. loved it. didn't like the feeling of staying in a rental though. last year we rented a class A. again, had the time of our life. thinking about buying a trailer and trading in my jeep for a 2500HD. I think with the trade-in we could go all in for about $1200/mo after new vehicle, new TT, and storage. Then we starting figure that's about 15K a year. The financials start looking ugly. I know it's not a financially savvy investment. It's much like a boat. It's expensive and a lifestyle investment. Just having it will make us do more weekends away and I'm sure there will be times where we are sitting at a campsite, the kids are playing with new friends, we are grilling and we nod and think "yeah, this was an awesome idea". You only live once. The kids will be young once. But our weekends are fairly booked up with soccer games, and other commitments and the reality is different from the dream of getting away often. Also, when renting, you tend to think about spending the money on other things. If we had an investment, we would feel obligated to take the extra steps to hit the road. When we are on the road, we adore it. But the logical side of me has a hard time pulling the trigger. Love to hear your thoughts... First 2 yrs of family rving towed a used popup with my underpowered f-150, then I bought a small entrance level TT and continued to tow with my underpowered F-150 for another 7 yrs. Finally bought a Tacoma in 2007 but continued to tow with the same TT for another 4 yrs. In the big picture of things its not what your camping/rving in but more about spending time with the family.

RE: some people's kids

RE: Jersey Shore Beach camping?

Try Sea Pirate Campground. Its about 10 minute drive from long Beach Island. Campground offers crabbing, fishing above average amenities. Clean family campground. Just don't book the back part of the campground, its very marshy and the Green Heads will eat you alive! Mike

RE: Please THINK Before You Review

I have no experience with yelp, Tripadviser, but I am on the boards of RVPR often enough to say they make a sincere effort about keeping the gaming to a minimum. The 3 review minimum, the policy where any review over 6 months will not be allowed, having to write a few sentences about the park and more with the new site on line. All of this keeps the gaming to a minimum. My "opinion" 90% of the reviews are legit. I have been using the site since 2007 and I have never been steered wrong about a review from that site. Further more, about 5 years before I started using RVPR we had a terrible experience at a campground in VT and sure enough when I go back to reading the reviews of that campground I find all the flags/warnings in the reviews, short story read all the reviews, the site does work.

RE: Please THINK Before You Review

We were fortunate to be the first this winter to review a couple of camps, bring them into the data base. Look at Denio Junction, Nv. Unfortunately, other unreviewed camps we have knowledge of, but have not visited in the last 6 months were denied listing. Yes, I believe RVPR has a long time policy where any review over 6 months will not be allowed. I've found a few gems also I have put in their data base, GrandView CampResort and Cottages, Moodus, CT Barrewood Campground, Westfield, VT Tomlinson Run State Park, New Manchester, WV Mike

RE: Please THINK Before You Review

What I don't like about internet reviews, as a business owner is, any wack job that may stagger in, can post a negative review. You can try and get it deleted, you can try and respond, both are difficult. I have never had a bad review, but I hope, if it does happen, folks will have the common sense to read between the lines. And read the many positives as well On the flip side just keep in mind it's those same internet reviews that give better establishments like yours, some of your business. That said I look for and write internet reviews that are common sense and In turn campgrounds either get my business or could receive business from the reviews I write. :) Mike

RE: 8 hrs from MD, fun for kids, 50 amp, prefer state parks?

Though its not a state campground atmosphere or prices how about Cherrystone Family Camping Resort in VA crabbing,Charter Fishing, water park, place is loaded with amenities, your boys will love the place. Also there's Bull Run Regional Park, VA nice state park with the hookups and space your looking for, water park and about 15 miles to DC metro Mike

RE: We are out of here!!!!

This thread has got me thinking about my upcoming trip to DC the end of March. The trip is the earliest I have ever planned and sure enough I am dealing with the coldest, most snow ever here in CT. Can't even get to the trailer, hoping for some serious snow melt the next 3 weeks. Mike

RE: Local Firewood For Sale

Were at a point where we will buy it at the campground, local grocery store or from one of the locals in the area... as long as it looks DRY! I can't help but laugh about this thread and on how we got burned (pun intended) on green firewood... we had one campground deliver us fire wood (big mistake) which I swear was pulled out from the local pond, it didn't even light up! all it did was foam! :B Mike
