Cedar Haven Resort, Freeport, Maine

    Nice campground.  Good Sam discount.  Hilly area, large pond for the kids, little beach around it.  We were at the edge of the campground so it seemed a lot more private to us.    Campground manager (Missy) was very helpful.  They have a modem hook up in a little room behind the counter at the office.  There is a charge for its use.

    This campground is close to L.L. Bean and other shopping stores.  

    Our first campground, our first lesson.  Don't pull into a campground after dark.  It's just not worth it.


Village Green Campground, Brimfield, Massachusetts

    This campground is on top of a hill and beside the highway.  It appears to be a nice campground for families.  Lots of activities for the kids.  Only water and electric at the sites.  There is a dump station.  We found the sites to be uneven as was the road getting into the campground.  If you're towing anything, be very careful.

    We found a very nice little Italian restaurant in Brimfield.  Excellent food and large quantities.  Very reasonable prices too.  Of course, Ole Sturbridge Village is just a couple of miles away.  This is a must see if you enjoy history.  It's a New England Village set in 1830.  The employees are well versed on both the time period as well as the individual jobs they are doing.  I spoke with a Lawyer, Banker, Shoemaker (don't make the mistake of calling him a cobbler), Blacksmith, Tinsmith, and several others.  It was a lovely day, well spent.  We certainly recommend a visit if you haven't been there before.

Lazy K Campground, Bechtelsville, Pennsylvania

    This campground was an excellent find.  Although they did not have sewer hook-ups, they made up for it by having cable at no additional cost.  They also offered an SKP discount of 15%.  Nice grassy, level sites, friendly employees and even though there were lots of kids it was still a quite campground.  

    The campground is just off route 100.  There are a number of little towns within 5 miles and some rather large shopping areas too.  The employees at the Wal-Mart tried to be helpful in pointing us in the 

    They had a phone line for computers, it was outside, beside the soda machine.  Sort of a strange location but the office hours were strange too.  They had a switch inside the office to turn on/off the phone connection so you had to catch them when the office was open, otherwise the phone was turned off.  All in all a very pleasant campground.

Turkey Creek RV Village, Branson, Missouri

    This is our first Escapees Rainbow campground.  We had a wonderful reception. 

 The campground is just minutes from Old downtown Branson and just a short hop to many of the shows in Branson.  It has 67 full-hookup sites.  It is modem friendly with the normal rest rooms, showers, laundry, dump station and telephones.  It sits on the banks of Lake Taneycomo and Turkey Creek.  There is also a dry camp area.  One of the bennies is discount tickets to many of the area attractions.

    Of course, Branson is one of the premier entertainment areas in the United States.  There are numerous theater shows, lake activities, amusements, as well as the Silver Dollar City theme park, complete with its own natural cavern.  If you're ever in this area and don't stay here, you'll miss a wonderful experience.

Village Green Campground, San Antonio, Texas

    This is our first Good Sam campground.  It's a very nice looking campground.  Well maintained, reasonably priced and near where we wanted to be.  Level lots with full hook-ups and our lot was a pull-thru.  It's always nice when you get one of those!  Our lot was on the last row and we could see where they are expanding the size of the Park.  They seem to have plenty of land.  

    The club house is very nice and doesn't seem to be used as much as other ones we've seen.  The modem hook-up is in one corner and very private.  There is a nice arrangement for sitting around and watching TV.  The only draw-back, and there is nothing the Park can do, is the emergency vehicles that use the main street beside the park.  It seems that San Antonio, or at least the northeast side, has lot of emergency calls.

Saguaro CO-OP SKP, Benson, Arizona

    The Saguaro CO-OP SKP park is a lovely place.  This is an Escapee (SKP) park.  There are about 300 lots that are leased in a co-operative agreement.  When people are on the road or otherwise not using their lot, they place the lot in a rental pool.  Other SKP members can rent the lot just like any other RV Park.  The lots are large, level and each has full services including cable.  Many of the lots have concrete pads and others have a casita (small house) with patio's.  The entire park is located on a sloping hill so the roads are terraced giving each lot a beautiful view of the San Pedro Valley.  This is really a nice place to stay.  

    They have a very nice club house and the activities are well organized and on-going.  We've really enjoyed the place.  We've square danced, played bingo (I won), dominos, Ginger joined the Chorus and I've become pretty active in the genealogical group.  We're close to Tombstone, where we watched a couple of shoot-outs, and did a little shopping.  We're only about 35 minutes from Tucson and also from Fort Huachuca.  All of this for $190 a month.  Such a deal.
