RE: Moose Hillock, NH

Been almost 20 yrs since we were there last, as mentioned if you have kids or young teens they will love it. super cool theme pool. Campground is kind of cut into hills and spread out. decently maintained, sites were private...at least where we were. They are about a 40 minute drive from Lincoln NH and most White Mountain attractions. Couple of things: loop roads had some serious dips in them where to the point it almost ripped off one of my leveling jacks on my low riding trailer, second careful on how you get there as one of the ways takes you over a 11% grade so best to get directions from the campground and probably not GPS. Don't forget to see Bruce! ;) Mike

RE: More campers than parks

Instead, why not look at the reviews on campgroundreviews.com and get the comments from hundreds of people who have been to thousands of campgrounds you've never been to? IMO this is why they our my first choice... they do a good job on how the web site is set up, 1 click on the reviewers profile and you have all the history of the reviewer which makes it a useful tool, plus combined that with all the reviews in their data base! (close to 400K) Not saying they are the only place to go as I also use trip adviser & google reviews if I am not finding the info I need. Mike

RE: More campers than parks

Wow, this thread has gone full circle! Thanks for all the input. I'm still a working guy so weekends are my only option. Even trying to book spots 6 months in advance hasn't worked for any of the beach or lake spots. When advance reservations open up for these places they are filled within seconds. Can't click fast enough. I guess we'll start just taking whatever we can find. There's probably spots in the privately owned places we can check out. Just too many people here that have RVs. yup were in a similar situation booking popular provincial parks(see my post 3 pages back) I've had multiple windows open while trying to book when the reservation site opens on their time, somehow I think the returning locals have the advantage, maybe because of proximity? I also wonder if some of the openings were already booked and were just ghost openings. Mike

RE: More campers than parks

"More campers than parks" We still working 40 and I do 90% of my booking in January, now except for the reservations I know I need to book a year in advance, some of which I have had hrs, minutes or seconds to book a popular campground in a preferred location, and yeah the last 5 yrs it seems to be getting worse... good for business for the rv parks/campgrounds I guess. Were not set up for boondocking, doesn't make sense for us, especially with us still working and our present "bridge" RV :C Mike

RE: Building RV park near McKinney TX, what would you want most?

Hi fellow travelers,What is most important to you when finding a place for a weekend, a couple of weeks, or 6 months? What makes you return the next time, and what makes you say 'never again'? At a minimum crushed stone put down on all campground loop roads & sites. As mentioned, keep sewer connections as low to the ground as possible, make sewer drainage angled down from campsite. Showers/bathrooms, large changing stalls with plenty of shelves/hooks and a bench to sit on. shower curtains placed correctly so water mostly stays in shower stalls. Above all, enforce your policies & security as you do not want to get a "reputation" Mike

RE: Campsite Sanitation - Beware

Turn on spigot for few seconds, connect hose run for a few seconds, connect to RV. yup At a state campground in MA about 5 yrs back I was starting to finish up at a 2 way island dump station, guy pulls up on the opposite side in a New Class C, I glanced over noticed he was kind of nervous, well he opens his black tank valve and lets it rip! NO SEWER HOSE! I just got out of dodge fast! while leaving I did notice he was trying to wash it down with the non potable water spigot. Mike We just saw that at Liberty Harbor. It was a class C from overseas - I could tell because it was shaped weird and had a funky license plate. They just pulled up close to the drain and opened the valve. No rinsing either. I wondered if that's the way they do it where they come from... Luckily there was a good rain before we had to dump. Yup, we were there about 5 yrs ago too, I noticed lots & lots of rental Class C's and overseas visitors. (guy next to me was from Germany as I helped him fix a problem with his fresh water hose) I'm not surprised that happened as my guess most have little to no experience with a RV. Mike

RE: Camping etiquette

Not to go to far off topic We have never had a issue with people being disrespectful at a KOA, the one we stayed at this past summer I was already aware the sites were to be on the small side and there would be probably a lot of younger camping families. When I called early to make my reservation, I explained our situation and they gave us a site on a outside perimeter loop road, worked out well. For the most part I try to look at the glass half full. :C Mike

RE: Camping etiquette

Campground? When I see "KOA" I think "RV park" For me at least I don't look at KOA's as RV Parks, I look at them as a possible place to stay. I research them, and if the reviews are good and if the park fits our needs we will book it just like any other place. :C Mike

RE: Camping etiquette

I can only wonder why anyone would stay at the Allentown KOA. Is this some sort of resort type camping? When I pass through the area, I stay for free at the Cabelas down the road in Hamburg. Dorney Park is in the Allentown Area Mike

RE: Campsite Sanitation - Beware

Just curious??? If your campsite has a picnic table on site, do you wash down the table first before using it? Bird poo, racoons, bugs, even the previous occupant and black hoses on the table???? Just wondering if you wash it down first. (for what it's worth, we do, after we saw a racoon on the top of our table when we pulled in, something like 35 years ago! Been doing it ever since. DW always throws one of those campsite tablecloth on ours, she buys them from camping world, they come with bungees that keep the tablecloth from blowing away Mike

RE: Trip to Northeast states

Northeast Trip: I thought I would do a follow up on our trip. We had a wonderful trip. We took in a lot of the sights and places that everyone mentioned and a few extra. We met a lot of very nice people, even though I was told the East coast people aren't as friendly as Midwest. We did have our dog papers and they did check them at some campgrounds and Canada. We did not do the EZ pass just paid as we went. We covered 18 states and Canada. Our truck had no problems with the mountains. We had great weather. Thanks again. We are ready to go back and see more! Alaska next year! Glad you enjoyed yourself and had a safe trip! :C Yeah I hear the same thing about us east coast folks not being as friendly, I can't really make comparisons about the west coast folks this point in our lives but most of the campers/Rvers we have come across have been easygoing & friendly!

You might be an RV if The only way you can back your truck correctly is if you have the trailer on Mike

RE: Boycott “No Campfires”

At this point in our lives we still enjoy a good campfire especially on those crisp nights and sometimes I will still cook over one. Now that said we don't specifically look for campgrounds that allow fires as our interest is more for what the area has to offer. 1 small pet peeve here.. I would like to Boycott campgrounds the sell green firewood! ;) Mike

RE: Help selecting East Coast location with lots of variables...

I would second the Knoebels suggestion but more towards their Lake Glory campground, they have full hook up sites for you and also have cambins, plus I believe they allow around 10 people per site. The cabins I think are rustic meaning a place to sleep and electric but the bath house is close. X3 when it comes to complete value, we go every year at Knoebel's campground: No charge for extra people at your campsite, NO admission charge to amusement park. You can bring your pets into the amusement park also. Lots of cabin rentals. Campground Bus stops that pick you up every 15 minutes... no walking. Clean family campground. Hope I don't sound like a ad! ;) Mike

RE: Help selecting East Coast location with lots of variables...

First 2 in the DC area. Bull Run Regional Park, they have cabins, water park, civil war battle fields near by. about a 15 minute drive to DC metro Cherry Hill Park in DC has it all also Cherrystone Family Camping Resort in VA, your kids will love it! Mike

RE: I Think I'm Outta Here

Try owning a hybrid, check out that forum. yup, I think we've lost more campers than Rvers on this site. Mike

RE: A Few Places to check out for RV Parks.

Yes, we use all of the mentioned ones and google maps is a huge help Campgroundreviews.com has google maps right on the home page of each campground/Rv park, makes things easy and convenient Mike

RE: When giving restaurant (or other venues) suggestions

My wife and I are both Gluten Free, tough to find any reviews that will work for us, usually we will find 1 or 2 bland plates that is GF and that will be it. We had a few exceptions though, one restaurant at Cooperstown NY, the chef substituted the ingredients for us and the meals turned out fantastic, another a seafood restaurant called Claws and Rockport,ME they had a large GF section on their menu, one item in particular was New England Clam Chowder, we actually did 2 lunch stops and 1 meal as the place was that good! :C Mike
