Campground Review: Twin Mountain KOA, New Hampshire

Campground Review: Twin Mountain KOA, New Hampshire

After spending six nights at the Woodstock/Lincoln KOA in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, and thoroughly exploring Franconia Notch, we were just not ready to leave the Granite State.  For every family friendly activity or outdoor adventure that we completed, we heard of three more that we wanted to try. So we did what we have done so often before.  We pulled out the KOA Catalog and looked for a suitable place to spontaneously extend our family vacation.  The Twin Mountain KOA seemed to fit the bill perfectly.  It was less than an hour...

Campground Review: Camden Hills State Park, Maine

                                                   Camden, Maine I pulled up to the ranger station at Camden Hills State Park with the usual site-anxiety that grips me upon entering each new campground.  Would our site be spacious? Would there be room for the boys to play and scream?  Or would we be staring at a 50 foot RV’s sewage lines all week and yelling at our boys to get out of our neighbors dirty fire ring?  It may seem greedy for me to always expect a really big site–but when your kids wake up at 5 am each morning with...
