Full Version: Lone Oaks in CT?
RV Park Reviews Campground Discussion Forum > RV Park and Campground Discussions > RV Park Discussions
There is only one review- has anyone else been there. We hated Strawberry Park and are afraid Lone Oaks will be more of the same and would like a few more opinions.
We just got back from Witch Meadow Pond Campground in Salem, Connecticut...ok for little kids, but the beach is way too crowded...people were "staking their claim" on the beach as early as 7 a.m bathrooms were not nice, in fact they were nasty. sad.gif

$150 for the weekend for two people...and everyone that we talked to said Strawberry Fields and Normandy campgrounds were the best, but I read only poor reviews of them.
I haven't heard anything positive about Strawberry Park. We had a reservation and cancelled it. Normandy Farms is nice but expensive. They pack you in like sardines with no privacy, no grass, but alot of gravel and dust. The kids (8 and 10) loved it. They do an excellent job of keeping the kids busy. We have done alot of camping in MA, Maple Park in Wareham is our favorite. Yogi just bought them out so we'll have see what happens over the next couple of years wink.gif

Hoped this helped
Thanks for the warning on Witch Meadow. Staking a claim at 7 am?? On THAT beach?? geesh!

I would be really annoyed at nasty bathrooms for that price. We cancelled our reservation at Lone Oaks and are going to go to a state park instead.
I have not personally been to Lone Oaks but have not heard much of anything good about it.

Have you checked out Odetah??? Very

Or Pine Acres Resort in Mass? One of our favorites. They are putting in a new pool this year and were hoping to have it open by August.
Try Seaport Campground in Old Mystic. We were there for Memorial Day and found it to be pretty nice. The sites are huge. I did a review of it as well.

Happy Camping,
tongue.gif We finally tried Normandy Farms in Foxboro MA and liked it so much the first time (July 2004) that we went back two weeks later bringing friends from Long Island, NY....they loved it and we all made next years reservations. The restrooms are spotless, showers are private and very clean. The grounds are clean of debris, the rangers go out of their way to help you onto your site. Yes, the sites are fairly close, but I have been to some campgrounds that our awning hits our neighbor's trailer, and that isn't the case at Normandy Farms. There was enough room for us to spread out a bit. There are 4 spotless pools (three outdoor, one indoor heated) a couple of jacuzzis and sauna and workout rooms. There are fenced in playgrounds, rec halls, adult lounge that had a big screen tv, a/c and plenty of comfortable seating. The staff was great, we didn't meet one "sour" person on either stay. We really got spoiled going there twice in one summer.
dry.gif We stayed at Lone Oak a couple of weeks ago. If you like crowds, lots of seasonal campers, a few wide open, treeless RV campsites surrounded by seasonal campers, seasonal camper trailers all around you with lots of additional structures and ornamentation, and ...did I mention seasonal campers?

One guy was selling home-made windmills, of which he had several to choose from. A woman in a golf cart came buy and gave my wife an invitation to a jewelry sale taking place the next day in her trailer "chalet."

The restroom and other facilities were very clean. The heated pool was advertised as 80 degrees, and maybe it was but it sure felt ice cold to me; maybe I am just cold natured. Personally, we would not return to Lone Oak but I could see that many others were enjoying it. My wife referred to it as a refugee camp.
