Ecocamel Orbit: A British solution to great showers

Orbit 1

The large round opening for water output creates a nice wide stream of water, similar to what I enjoyed in a home shower. I was able to go 10 days without dumping the gray water tank, which indicated that it lived up to its promise of saving water, too.

Spartanburg NE/Gaffney, S.C. KOA

Gaffney KOA 5

People looking to get work done at Freightliner Custom Chassis, will enjoy this RV park located less than five minutes from the campground. But, it's also close to the BMW factory and Cowpens National Battlefield, a Revolutionary War site from which the movie The Patriot is based.

Fantasy Island Campground – Sunbury, Pa.

fantasyisland 3

Located on the site of a former amusement park on an island in the Susquehanna River, Fantasy Island is a small, 96-site overnight campground populated by plenty of seasonal campers as well. The campground is an older facility without much in the means of amenities other than a pool, small playground and aging mini-golf course.

Hughes Autoformer – Never worry about spikes again

Hughes Autoformer 6

Campground power systems can be unpredictable, especially in older RV parks. Some parks set up utility poles on a chain, which means that a problem with an RV a few sites away can can certainly impact other RVs hooked up to that same power chain. If one RV pulls too much power, it can reduce the amount of power available to other RVs connected to the same system. A low voltage situation is just as destructive to on-board electronics as a power surge. RV owners have the ability to protect themselves and their rigs by using a Hughes Autoformer.

Eby’s Pines Campground – Bristol, Ind.

I have stayed at Eby's Pines twice. Both times, I found Eby's Pines to be a quiet, relaxing retreat with plenty of outdoor amenities. Whether you like a genuine outdoor experience, or plenty of family-friendly things to do, you'll find both at Eby's Pines.

RV Armor — The end-all to a roof problems

My final roof completely coated in RV Armor

Once the final coating was applied, the product has lived up to its name by forming an armor-like protection over the roof that provides protection against ultra-violet light damage, punctures and water. I have endured some torrential downpours since the roof was installed and have not seen any signs of leaking. I have even had a decent size branch or two fall onto the roof, along with an ample barrage of chestnuts. The roof has provided flawless protection.

Fox Den Acres Campground – New Stanton, Pa.

Fox Den - Lake

The park is heavily tilted toward seasonal campers, but the facility has a huge area for overnight and short-term guests. Although most of the campground is heavily wooded, the overnight area is located pretty much in an open field. Yet, the pull-through gravel sites have 30- and 50-amp power connections as well as water and sewer at most sites.

Hersheypark Camping Resort — Hershey, Pa.

HP 7

The only thing deserving of resort status at this campground are the exorbitant fees charged to people who use the facility. Hersheypark is the reason why the outdoor hospitality industry needs to develop criteria before a campground can label itself as a "resort." Building upon the Hershey brand, this campground is no different than thousands of other RV parks, yet in some ways, it is considerably worse.

America’s Best Campground — Branson, Mo.

ABC Branson 2

City close and country quiet is the motto at ABC and it couldn’t be more accurate. We were blown away by the customer service throughout our stay and impressed with their quick response to a torrential rainstorm we had. I can’t recommend America’s Best Campground enough!

Pine Lane Campground – East Springfield, Pa.

Pine Lane - campground 2

Pine Lane Campground is a 24-acre, 100-site RV park well-suited for people who like to fish. The big sites will generally accommodate an RV, vehicle and boat. The park, which caters almost exclusively to seasonal campers, is located directly across the street from Erie Bluffs State Park, which offers hiking and access to Lake Erie, and 16 miles from Presque Isle State Park, a popular area for biking and swimming.

Robertsville State Park Campground — Robertsville, Mo.

Jen - Robertsville 3

Roberstville State Park is a hidden treasure in the woods. This small campground with very wooded sites allows for privacy and the real feeling of being one with nature in the parks more than 1,200 acres. If you’d rather be nestled in the trees instead of jammed in a modern “parking lot” type RV park than this is definitely your type of place when visiting eastern Missouri.
