Fishermen's State Park and Campground, Narragansett, Rhode Island

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

We arrived at this park mid afternoon and checked in quickly. Staff was friendly and welcoming. We found our site in Area #2 with easy to follow directional signs. We passed very nice looking tennis and basketball courts. In addition, there is a large wind turbine on the property that can, at times, be noisy. Our site was very narrow. We didn't have much room to set-up our chairs before the slope to a knoll started. The knoll was part of our site and did provide a nice spot for our fire ring and picnic table. The bad part was when it rained the sand from the knoll washed onto our outdoor rug covering it in mud. We did find a level area on our paved pull-through site that didn't require any leveling. Be cautious as many sites in Area #2 are severely unlevel. Overall this is a really nice, clean campground. We had good water pressure, electrical service, and sewer (an added bonus at a State park!). For the sites not offering sewer, there is a dump station available. You can walk down to Area #1 for water views. There is a "look-out" area near the entrance with beautiful views. The bathhouses/restrooms here are old and very outdated, however, they were found clean and usable. It is coin-op showers (.75) that seemed a bit steep for the time received. We showered quickly. Overall, it was a quiet weekend stay with no rowdy groups that we could hear. All in all, it's a great park and we look forward to staying here again. We camped at Fishermen's State Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

Bring plenty of leveling apparatus as many sites are extremely unlevel! This was a very manageable location to get to Newport. Grocery store nearby.

Salisbury Beach State Park, Salisbury, Massachusetts

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $34.00
Overall Rating:      

Check in was easy, they had a pleasant gentleman stationed at the entrance directing us in the dark. Finding our site was easy as the rows are lettered and sites clearly numbered. Considering this is a State beach campground we thought there was good space between sites. Sites were level and had concrete pads with paved driveway. Sand/grass around the pad with a fire ring and picnic table at each site. Walking distance to the beach and river from any site. Lots of people had their bikes. The campground was busy but pretty quiet. Dogs are allowed on river beach and off-season on the ocean beach. Bathhouses were older but clean. The store sold wood and some incidentals. Great, great, great location, can't wait to go back! We camped at Salisbury Beach State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Sunfox Campground LLC, Lisbon, Connecticut

We chose our site online with a photo. It was an end site, near the stream and pond. Looked lovely. Grey water only on this site. Some sites have sewer connections. What the photo didn't show is that the site is right next to the backside of the office/house and their activities room (maybe 40' away). I called and inquired about how close the snack bar was to our site, never thinking I should ask how close every other building is. Our view was facing the back of a plywood building. Night #1 we listened to every BINGO number called, every BINGO won and all the chatter until 10pm. In the morning we had kids driving their bikes through our site and having near crashes with our picnic table. We moved our truck for privacy and to make a defining line to our site. The truck wasn't quite long enough to block the heap of old tractors and junk piled up near a small pavillion behind the building. We did get to watch kids hit rocks at each other with ping pong paddles to the point in which we told them to knock it off and move along. Night #2 we endured two hours of karaoke while trying to enjoy our campfire, just feet away. In our opinion, they need to re-think that site. Perhaps eliminate it all together, or, at least, put additional fencing and plantings on the pavillion side to define the site and add a bit of privacy for folks. I will say that this campground had tons of activities for young families to take advantage of. The pool looked nice and clean, we didn't have the opportunity to use it. The owners were in the office and pleasant when we bought firewood. We didn't see any other staff out and about. We didn't use their showers, they were too far away. In their defense, we didn't complain. We were already unhooked and set up and they were pretty much sold out. However, we would have made arrangements to stay elsewhere had we had accurate information when booking the site. We know they are fairly new owners (4 years I was told) and wish them success, but we'll try somewhere else next time. We camped at Sunfox Campground LLC in a Travel Trailer.

Bear Creek Campground, Bristol, Connecticut

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $60.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a tricky review for me to write. Did we enjoy our stay? Yes, for the most part. Would we stay again? No. Here are the pros and cons of our visit. PROS: Easy entrance and friendly staff, we received our requested site, all pull through RV sites, level sites, clean bathrooms/showers, beautiful store/office, shuttle service to the amusement park, discounted tickets to Lake Compounce, convenient to grocery store and interstate CONS: Hot, dry sites with no shade (newly planted trees not large enough yet), W/E only-no sewer, limited amenities (they need a pool), not much to do at campground for older kids and adults, not enough space between sites, garbage truck coming through at 7 am, constant 24/hr droning of power plant and horrible sporadic odors from same. This park has a ton of potential and I don't think they're done with it yet. The cabins and teepees seem very popular and looked great. The tenting area is a bit tight but was well maintained. A staff member did tell us that there are rumors of a pool for next year. However, not sure what, if anything, they can do about a 650-ton a day solid waste incinerator for a neighbor. And frankly, that is a deal breaker for us. The constant sound and frequent odor were simply intolerable for us. We can't go back because of that. Too bad. We camped at Bear Creek Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Lake Compounce is adjacent to this campground (owned/managed by the same company?) and is a great, family amusement park. Additionally, they have a water park included in the admission price. Admission tickets are sold at a discount to campers in the office/store at Bear Creek. Super Target only a few miles away for a grocery run or forgotten items.

Hid'n Pines Family Campground, Old Orchard Beach, Maine

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $70.00
Overall Rating:      

Check in went smoothly and the clerk was friendly and informative. Getting to our site was a little awkward. We could see our site from the front gate but it was suggested to go up and around. It would have been easier to drive straight to it. All the roads are nicely paved, but we found them to be a bit tight (turns/trees). Once at our site we found it to be a little tight to the neighbor behind us. We left our rear awnings in so their campfire sparks wouldn't cause damage. It's not very often that we have come across a campground that is this clean. Our site was pretty much spotless (including fire pit). Staff would stop their golf carts to pick up the smallest piece of trash. The bathrooms were quite possibly the cleanest we've ever seen (showers, too) any time of the day. Everywhere we walked was equally as clean. Although they were not sold out, it was pretty busy. Overall, it was pretty quiet at night (except for the blasted train whistle!). Tons of kids that were not too quiet in the early mornings. All the staff we interacted with were helpful and friendly. We camped at Hid'n Pines Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This was our first visit to OOB and sadly, we didn't love the area. We drove to Kennebunk/Kennebunkport and loved that area and would recommend the trolley tour.

Wells State Park, Sturbridge, Massachusetts

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $17.00
Overall Rating:      

Large sites with plenty of privacy. Heavily wooded campground with pines and hardwoods providing dense shade. Well maintained, paved roads with dirt/grass sites, some with wood chips. We didn't struggle to level but did have to jockey a bit to center awning between trees. Clean sites with special attention paid to providing clean fire pits and charcoal grills. Older but clean restroom. Plenty of friendly, helpful staff present throughout the day/evening. Park is staffed until 10 PM. Great value and location. We would definitely stay here again! We camped at Wells State Park in a Travel Trailer.
