I'm also looking to read from actual winery visits from fellow "WINOS". I know there are great wineries across the country, but personal visits would give a better choice for others to visit also.

Love the KOA at Seneca Lake. We also stay there. You can take your vehicle to Watkins Glenn and race it around the track also. Last year we had a Sunseeker 2900 and the DH said it would be waste of gas. This year I am taking the ecoboost and don't care about the gas.

We love the finger lakes region in NY. There are lots of campgrounds (we've never stayed at any) and great state parks ( we stayed at many!) There are the Seneca Lake Wine trail, Cayuga Lake Wine trail, and the wineries around the Keuka lake. We've Been visiting wineries there for 10 years and I don't think we've been to them all! Seriously, there are so many wineries. Oh, and a camping world near Bath, NY!

There is a wine tour in Prince Edward county in Ontario. Many private CG and Sandbanks Provincial Park (great swimming with a sandy beach that is over a mile long).
There is also a vineyard just 10 min. from the KOA campground in Mallorytown, On.

TotalBliss - Where did you stay in Traverse City? That place is on our "must see" list for 2015 or 2016.

Thanks

We didn't stay at a campground but this one looked pretty nice.
Traverse City Michigan Campground
The wineries were awesome and the people were nice also. Well worth the trip. The restaurants in Traverse City are great also. I think anyone would have a great time. We spent a long weekend up there, which of course was way to short. The wines were very reasonable. Don't know if there are new ones or if some have closed, but again well worth the trip.
