Elysburg, PA. This campground is rough. Only 30 amp no water no sewer and the sites are anything but level. The park is like walking back in time and is a nice place to visit.

With that being the case for above, I recommend staying here, 1 mile down the road;

Any others in the USA, please post them! Its the time of year for families to begin planning the 2017 camping season, maybe this will present some ideas. If you have any other great family RV idea, please start a new topic and lets get the information out there.

Bill,

Check out Admiralty RV Resort on RV Park Reviews. :( Unless they have been purchased in the last few years, they are one of the worst parks we have ever stayed in. We held a Rally there and the manager came into our meeting room, verbally attacked one of our members and banned him from the park for going the wrong way on an interior road in his car. The condition of the grounds were poor. It was evident that the park may have been a nice park in the past but it had really gone to pot.

See you in Chandler.

I have to apologize for my above remarks. I went to RV Park Reviews and it now must be under new ownership. All of the reviews in 2016 were for the most part, good. However if you keep going in the reviews to 2012 you will find what I was talking about.

As Bill said it is close to Sea World and one of the largest H.E.B. I have been in.

Again, I hope that it has improved.

I think we were there in 2014. Didn't have any problem. Like all places the next guy in may have problems. 

Can't wait till Chandler.

If you're ever in south Louisiana, the Cajun Palms RV Resort near Henderson, La with its waterpark, beach volleyball and arcades is a great place for kids / grandkids. Close by activities includes Atchafalaya Swamp boat tours (air boats are great fun with kids!), Acadian Village and Zoo of Acadiana in Lafayette.   In Baton Rouge is the Blue Bayou Water Park / Dixie Landin' Amusement Park Complex.  For older kids (middle school +), historic plantation tours may be of interest.    These are but a few of many kids activities that are within a 30 minute drive from the Cajun Palms RV Resort.  And of course great Cajun dining is available most anywhere. 

Here are some web links for more info:

If you get to northern Ohio take your kids to Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio.

If your into roller coasters this is the place. Nice camp ground and beach on Lake Erie.

It has been a few years since we have been there but they update things every year.
