RE: Lancaster Pa

Thank you all, just got back from a nice week away. Started with a night in the Mohegan Sun Casino parking lot in Wilkes-Barre, Pa after the Alan Jackson concert.Then a night stop over at Cabela's in Hamburg, Pa, where another RVer took a pic of a bear roaming the parking lot the night before. From there we spent a few nights at Country Acres in Lancaster, which I highly recommend, and then off to Delaware Seashore State Park in Rehoboth Beach for a few days. Back home now and thinking about where to go next. It's a shame that work has to always get in the way though. Thanks for replying back, glad your trip was enjoyable! Mike

RE: Maine Campground with Teens

If I recall Powderhorn and hid'n pines is owned by the same family. both are next to each other. When we stayed at Hid'n pines my teens just walked to the beach area, not a problem for them with endless energy. Old Mom & Dad took the car! LOL Though we haven't been to Powder horn I hear it is more resort type campground and better for teens. Paradise Park has a nice pool and hot tub, our teens loved that! Mike

RE: Lancaster Pa

We've stayed at the koa a couple of times. The owners can be so-so, and if you read reviews you'll see why. LOL I've heard about that campground and have read the reviews! ;) Mike

Atlantic Oaks Campground centrally located at the cape. Rail trail behind campground, beaches everywhere. Don't forget to get a lobster roll at Arnolds next door! Mike

RE: Maine Campground with Teens

Old Orchard Beach is great for teens, lots of teen stuff at the beach! Check out Paradise Park Resort your teens can walk to the beach from the campground. I would book now if you hope to find a site. Also check out Powerhorn, Bayley's and hid'n pines, all get good reviews and are more family type. Mike

RE: Ok, Time to Come Clean and Admit Our Screw-Ups

Ever see a Truck & TT driving down town Pittsburgh PA? well that was me 10 yrs ago when I missed my exit, with white knuckles managed to find a hotel parking lot. Hotel attendant was kind enough to draw up some directions to get me back out of the city and back to the open roads! Mike

RE: Connecticut State Parks - some closed to camping

Wouldn't it be wonderful if they could upgrade the rest of our state parks like Hammonasset State Park. I have been trying off and on the past 5 years to book hammo to no avail, too much local demand... Mike You are trying only to get holiday weekends and/or electric hookup sites? Holiday weekends are always packed, and 3/4 of Hammo is no hookups. Electric sites need to be booked the moment they become available, although non-holiday weekends are sometimes open. non-electric sites are usually available throughout the year. I go back and forth on "upgrading" the state park campgrounds. It is really nice to have hookups, but so many state parks are beautiful and inexpensive to stay at as they are. Upgrading will increase the rates, and the crowds. As I said in my first post, Macedonia Brook has become our favorite state park for camping, and it doesn't even have bathrooms with running water! Maybe the outhouses keep people away? lol x2 on reserving. I can generally book any non holiday weekday @ Hammo but got to reserve far in advance for weekends and holidays. The only time I ever got a spot on Beach Rd was a fluke and uhm I dinna need the electricity but still had to pay for it . Will give Macedonia a look see this summer after we return from Indian Lake SP in NY. Where we'll have to bring in all supplies including water by boat and I'll introduce my loved ones to the joys of pit toilets. If they don't tar and feather me after this vacation I'll count my blessings more often, hehehe. I generally do my booking from Jan to March, we for the most part do not book holidays. Beach area campgrounds like Fishermans Memorial in RI and Salisbury Beach in MA have plenty of W/E sites which is what we look for. Would like to try Hammo just once, not enough W/E sites. Edit: My other small pet peeve is the campground doesn't open to almost June. We would have loved to book in early May this year, well before the schools gets out in CT. Mike

RE: Which Campground Will You Never Go Back To

Never never return to Yogi Bear Sturbridge. It was only a one night stay but if we had felt comfortable driving longer, we would not have stayed. We asked for a pull thru so we didn't have to unhook car from motorhome. Little did we know the pull thrus were so close together that we couldn't even open our door all the way due to the slideout from the unit beside of us. What little grass there was apparently hadn't been mowed all summer (this was August) because it was at least 8 inches high. Management rude. Filthy place. I'll agree with you on that place... When I was there with our camping companions we were parked door to door. Kinda nice, I put out my awning and it touch his camper, like adjoining sites. No campfire that night, it was right under our awning. There was no sewer hook up in our area either, so when it became time to leave we had to tour the whole place to get to the one and only dump station. It wouldn't have been so bad if I could fit under the tree limbs. I had to haul it back to NH and dump in my own facilities. Not a bad place if you don't mind camping in a old gravel pit with hundreds of your new closest friends. Oh, I should mention it was some sort of Halloween that weekend and we had about 200 kids come knocking on out door. Which we would have gladly left a bowl treats for them if we'd only been informed. It was still September. who knew???? X3 Wasn't our favorite either, lots of unkept campers, blue tarps. Our site was so unlevel, I used every block of wood I had and still couldn't level my TT. Interior roads were very tight making the 90 degree turns and just missing a few large trees. Mike

RE: Which Campground Will You Never Go Back To

I find this thread interesting, about 15 yrs ago we were at a campground in VT that we left early, along with 2 other out of state transient RVers. It was so bad I am not comfortable posting. Knowing what rock bottom is this experience has made me not sweat the small stuff and is why when I post reviews they are somewhat on the higher side. I have read the campground has new owners,so hopefully things have turned around, regardless we will never come back. Mike

RE: New York City

This is a good idea on how tight the sights get at Liberty Harbor but looking at the early evening views of the Freedom Tower was just awesome! http://rvpr_prod.s3.amazonaws.com/photo687_700.jpg height=500 width=700 Mike

RE: Assateague in April?

We were there last June, we had noticed by evening the bugs were stating to come out and they were especially bad by the bay side water/brush/trees. During the day wasn't to much of a issue. I would guess in April should be better. Were heading back again in June. Mike

RE: New York City

As mentioned before Liberty Harbor is the only campground that is a 10 minute walk to PATH subway with connections to the MTA and everything that NYC has to offer. Also Liberty Park is a walk down the street where you can pick up the ferry and visit the Statue of liberty and Ellis island. And to repeat again don't go here expecting a camping experience, your there to see NYC. Campground is a parking lot with just the very basics. Good Luck! Mike

RE: Moose Hillock Campground (NY) Lawsuit

Why would this have any bearing on me wanting to choose to go to this campground??? :h Sounds like someone is positioning their chess pieces to get a land dispute resolved. This has no bearing on how the campground is run, IMO Mike

RE: Campground websites

My preference is RV Park Reviews. Web site is built specifically for the RV/camping community with over 15k campgrounds and 283K reviews in their data base makes it a good resource. Check out their APP too Mike
