Campground Reviews: Our Stays from Maine to Texas

Campground Reviews: Our Stays from Maine to Texas

Oh what a lovely time we had Workamping in Maine this Summer/Fall. When we accepted our next Workamping job in Texas starting in the middle of November, we knew we had a road trip to plan. Our stops were dictated by three things: Convenience, Family & Friends, and Fun! We have posted our campground reviews as we moved along, but below we provide a map of our travels and links to each of the campgrounds we stayed….

Narrows Too Camping Resort - Trenton, Maine: 

This is the park we called home for 162 days, making it our longest stay at a campground thus far. Very near to Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor, Maine. Definitely a place we plan to return to in the future.

Hampton Beach State Park - Hampton, New Hampshire

Convenience: Our first stop on our road trip to Texas. While we can never pass on a chance to camp by the ocean, this stop was a nice distance for our first travel day. We lucked out catching a lovely sunset at this campground.

Bear Creek Campground - Bristol, Connecticut

Convenience: This stop was also dictated by our desire to drive no more than 250 miles per day. While we don’t always stay under that amount, we most certainly try. So with our next destination being Pennsylvania, a stop in Connecticut it was. We ran a couple errands and almost got kicked off private property. An easy on/off campground with long pull-thru spots. Just be aware there is no sewer connections on the sites.

4. Moyer’s Grove Campground - Wapwallopen, Pennsylvania

Family: Stop #4 was determined by a family visit. With Russ’ Dad and Sister living near Philadelphia, we knew we wanted to stop for a visit. But rather than drive further South when our next stop was State College, we left the camper at this campground near I-80 and hopped in the car headed for some family weekend fun. While not probably a campground we will need to stop at again, it fit the bill for what we were looking for.

Bellefonte / State College KOA - Bellefonte, Pennsylvania

Friends & Family: After spending some time with family in Eastern Pennsylvania, we made another stop to catch up with more family members in Western Pennsylvania. We had a nice couple days visiting and enjoyed our deluxe patio site with paved patio, grill, porch swing, and fire pit.

Delaware State Park - Delaware, Ohio

Friends & Family: We caught up with several members of the Gibbons Gang, so our next stop was to visit with the Dutt Family. We had stayed at Delaware State Park before as it is the closest campground to my parent’s house in Waldo. Yup, you read that right. Where’s Waldo? Ask me I know where he is hiding! It’s a nice little state park in Ohio, but be prepared as their is not water or sewer hookups on the sites. Lots of trees & green space though, which makes us happy campers!

Indianapolis KOA - Greenfield, Indiana

Friends: Indiana is a familiar state for us as it was where we first met. It is also where I (Betsy) spent my college years. It had been quite some time since I had returned to my alma mater or visited friends in the Hoosier State. This stop warranted that and we had a great few days filled with lots of reminiscing.

St. Louis West / Historic Route 66 KOA - Eureka, Missouri

Fun: We had a pretty good streak of friends & family visits, so now it was time for some touristy fun. Even though Russ had visited before, it was on our bucket list to take a trip to the top of the St. Louis Arch, so a stop in Missouri was a must. We crossed that item off the bucket list and enjoyed our stay near St. Louis. The thing I will remember most about our stay at this campground, was the colorful fall leaves! This was also Charlie’s first trip over the Mighty Mississippi.

Idle Hour Lake Campground - Altamont, Kansas

Convenience: From St. Louis we weren’t sure if we were going to take a more Southerly turn (for fun in Memphis and New Orleans) or continue further West. If you are good with your geography, you have already figured out we continued West. Our stop in Kansas was dictated by the fact that RVH-Lifestyles is conveniently located there. The Big Tow’er was in need of a little TLC and since he is one of our Main Men, this stop was for him

Twin Fountains RV Resort - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

Fun: We finally took that left turn to head South toward Texas. Neither Russ or I had ever been to Oklahoma, so both the driving and the exploring were fun. We enjoyed our visit to Oklahoma City. The campground was conveniently located to the city and we might just circle back through to spend a little more time exploring the area. Stay tuned.

I-35 RV Park & Resort - Elm Mott, Texas

Fun: After passing through 12 states, our next stop brought us into the Lone Star State. The big state we will not be traveling out of for quite some time (other than by airplane). When our route was going to take us right through Waco, a stop at Magnolia Market was a must. This campground provided us with exactly what we were looking for, a super easy off the highway / back on the highway stay and FREE breakfast!

Texas Lakeside RV Park - Port Lavaca, Texas

Home Sweet Home. After putting 3,600 miles on our Pilot driving and adventuring our way from Maine to Texas, we put the jacks down and are here to stay. We will be workamping here in Texas for the next 365 days. Our campground review will come at the completion of our stay which will then make it our longest stay to date. Feel free to come visit us!
