RE: Salisbury State Beach Reservation

Good value considering axcess to 2 beaches with in walking distance. As mentioned before dont expect much from the town of Salisbury as there is not much to see but fine if your just staying at the campground Driving through the Hampton beach area will be a nightmare Mike

RE: Anyone Purchase an RV Used instead of New?

Going to buy used? chances are you will not encounter a seller from Rv. Net or someone who has even heard of a rv forum. My opinion most folks have a run to destruction attitude when it comes to rv maintenance. Mike

RE: California State Parks dropping ReserveAmerica

For those of us that camp in California and reserve through ReserveAmerica, you will receive an email (if you have not already) that California campgrounds will now be booked through a new site, ReserveCalifornia effective 8/1/2017. You will not be able to book California sites on ReserveAmerica after 7/26/2017 as the state has dropped them as a vendor. Any current reservations you have will be carried over to the new site, BUT, you will have to set up a new account on ReserveCalifornia. FAQ info here: ReserveCalifornia Maryland dropped them to this year. https://parkreservations.maryland.gov Mike

RE: Letchworth State Park, NY questions

Also - to answer your other question - yes; I've walked every inch of that Letchworth Branch of the Finger Lakes Trail. It's a lovely hike, but it is loooooong. There are a lot of gullies. By the end (a two-day job for me), my knees were hurting quite a bit. -Speak We look for the more flat/moderate type of hiking & biking trails. Unfortunately my aged 55 year old knees and feet will not allow anything more strenuous. You have given me some great information! :C Mike You will love the trails around Canadice and Hemlock Lakes. Flat. Gravel-ly. I don't know if they're approved for biking, however. You'd have to check that NYSDEC site I linked. -Speak Kayaking on Hemlock! https://scontent-iad3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/20046834_1390820244348367_1122098688403052727_n.jpg?oh=1d446f916478ab1850a8a00092079b0e&oe=5A0A7E24 height=300 width=300 Biking on Canadice https://scontent-iad3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/20108328_1390820354348356_4596692694062084623_n.jpg?oh=9c2c1b0528a878327a20f9d320468031&oe=5A0FE198 height=300 width=300 Walking the Genesee Valley Canal trail https://scontent-iad3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/19961634_1222101604558607_3137800186244141849_n.jpg?oh=10b6fa86999774e41f90a61eb92d76d9&oe=5A06EA73 height=400 width=300 We enjoyed the lakes as much as Letchworth State Park!

RE: Rocwood Roo vs. Jayco JayFeather Hybrid

Hopefully Jayco still has the 2 year bumper to bumper warranty. One question I might consider does Rockwood have the same. Mike

RE: Ozone generators

Ozone is a great product, I use it on our cooling towers, it will kill any bacteria and especially legennella. On our testing we actually have sterile water with 0 colonies per million. And as mentioned earlier the flip side is it's very corusive where you need to use a corusive inhibitor program. My guess if used casually it would not be a issue Mike

RE: Northeast campground

How about Letchworth state park, NY Check out the ridge campground, mount morris,ny. Should have W/E sites available. I am almost certain they have honey wagon service too. Check out their reviews on Rv parkreviews.com Mike

RE: Jayco vs. Kodak vs. Starcraft

We have owned our Jayco for 6 yrs, it's been just okay though I have had to put more maintenance into it than I would have liked to. Most folks seem to have good luck with them from what I have read. Hear good things about starcraft, not so much about Kodak. I believe kodak is part of thor industries and both ultra lite trailers are more entrance level and have had problems. I had owned a thor product in the past and it was junk. FYI thor industries bought out Jayco 2 years ago but Jayco is still independently made from what I last heard. Mike

RE: Ocean Lakes Family Campground - HOLY GOLF CARTS!!!!!!

Interesting reading reviews of that place. Mostly 4-5 stars, but with many reviews sort of "warning" about the golf carts! For some reason this reminds of a quote from a certain well known ball player: "It is so crowded, no one goes there anymore" now I know your from western CT ;) Mike

RE: Ocean Lakes Family Campground - HOLY GOLF CARTS!!!!!!

That doesn't sound like fun to me. 859 sites, 2000 golf carts (is that really true?), thousands of people. Wow! Not a get away for me. I like beaches but not like that. Reading their website it's more like a small city with 450 employees! Yikes. when we were at OL they had their own Post office Mike

RE: Ocean Lakes Family Campground - HOLY GOLF CARTS!!!!!!

RE: Campers from hell

Risk & Research, For the most part we will avoid the Big 3 holidays. But you can get away with a good experience camping on a holiday weekend if the establishment enforces it's own rules. Mike

RE: Letchworth State Park, NY questions

If you want to have more of a deep-woods feel to your hiking, try the trails on the east side of the river. There's a really nice area down in the southern part of the park, on the east side of the river, where the trail overlooks the upper falls and runs along the track of a former railroad and (more distant past) former canal. If you look closely you'll be able to find remnants of both the railroad and the canal. -Speak Have you been on that trail? I believe that is the Genesee valley greenway I have been researching. I am hoping because if it is a rail trail it should be okay for bikers? Thank you for all your information, it will come in handy! Mike

RE: Letchworth State Park, NY questions

If you don't want whitewater kayaking, you probably don't want to do any kayaking in the park itself. The Genesee River runs through the park at the bottom of the gorge, but it has a fair amount of white water. If you want flatwater kayaking in the area, the nicest lakes for that, in my opinion, are Canadice Lake and Hemlock Lake. You can get to them in less than an hour of driving from Letchworth. They are both pristine, in the sense that there is no development along the shorelines. They also both have hiking trails around them. Recently the land around these lakes transferred ownership from the City of Rochester to the State of New York. The City of Rochester gets its drinking water from one or both of them. That's why there's not development. Also, motors on boats must be less than 10 HP, which makes for a nice, peaceful paddling experience. Here's a link to information about the area of Hemlock and Canadice Lakes. -Speak Thanks for the information & links, yeah we might kayak Canadice Lake, like the pics of the lake on google searches Mike

RE: Letchworth State Park, NY questions

Anyone bike the Genesee valley greenway on the southern part of Letchworth State Park? looks scenic? were were wondering if worth taking our road bikes or should we just stick to the walking/hiking trails. We will have 3 full days to visit the park. https://www.traillink.com/trail-maps/genesee-valley-greenway Mike

Letchworth State Park, NY questions

We will be staying at The Ridge Campground Mount Morris, New York in mid July beside the Hiking trails at Letchworth state park, we we wondering if anyone has recommendations for railtrail like biking in the area or in the state park. Again level bike trails, no off road stuff. Also with the same idea in mind we were wondering about Kayaking in the area. We enjoy the scenic river/pond/lake stuff... NO white water! Thanks everyone for your replies Mike
