The best 2 campgrounds on our trip from Orlando to Boston!
We spent a week driving from Orlando to Boston. Since we had a lot of miles to cover, we spent a few nights staying in basic RV parks that offered a Passport America discount during the week. There were two campgrounds however that we really liked and hope we can return to some day. Definitely the best 2 campgrounds on that part of our trip.
Please realize that we travel with a small 17' foot trailer, so we don't pay a lot of attention to what's important for the big rigs. (Checkout my previous post about our Top 3 Favorite Campgrounds in the Southeast!!!. I described there the particular criteria we use to evaluate a place we stay.)
Here's our favorite so far on this trip. Send me a note if you have any questions or comments!
Be sure to checkout all our Campground Reviews to see what we found at the other campgrounds on this trip, as well as other places we've stayed across the country. In addition to the best 2 campgrounds, we also really liked Creekside Campground in Virgina.
#1 - MinuteMan Campground - Northwest of Boston
There are not a lot of options around Boston, but this on was great. It was heavily wooded with nice facilities. The people there were friendly and helpful. It is only about 15 minutes from the Commuter Train station in Littleton. We were able to park there and catch a train into downtown Boston. The ride was about an hour, and cost us $20 round trip per person. It was very easy. About two blocks from the North Station (the terminating point downtown), we were able to catch an Old Town Trolley to tour Boston. They had great drivers that were very knowledgeable. They let you jump of the trolleys when you want to walk around and explore a place, then hop back on the next trolley when you are ready and continue the tour.
#2 - Rip Van Winkle - Near Woodstock New York
We had some visiting to do in White Plains NY, north of the city. Here again, we found a limited choice of nice campgrounds when I did our research. We decided that it would be nice to visit Woodstock NY, and selected a great campground near it. This required an hour and a half drive to White Plains, but that was fine because we got to see a lot of nice things along the way.
We have never stayed at a campground where the staff was more excited about making sure we had a great experience. The campground itself was very heavily wooded with campgrounds randomly placed where we felt like we had good privacy. They are very focused as a family campground and had the most activities we've ever seen at a campground..
Denny JohnsonAfter having spent most of our adult life in Orlando, my wife Fay and I moved to Knoxville, TN in 2020. We are loving the change of seasons and being near the mountains. Plus, this part of the country is loaded with great places to camp.
We camped years ago with a pop-up camper, but got serious about it when we purchased our Casita in 2014. There was a lot to learn as we started traveling with it, and a lot of conflicting opinions on line. That's when I decided that creating a website would be a good retirement project. I started tinyTowable.com to share things we've learned along the way that have worked well for us in hopes that the information would be of help to others.
