Our again enjoyed ourselves on our return visit to Knoebels. You can enter the amusement without paying an admission fee, something that other similar campground/amusement parks don't offer. Most of the roads that we saw were paved. Our site was above average in size and had crushed stone put down though I had to use several boards to level the trailer. Noticed many other sites in our area were not level either. Our power box was in good working order. No Wi-Fi but very good signal on our Verizon cell phone. Geography at the campground was moderately to heavily wooded and slightly hilly. Staff was professional, friendly and experienced on how a campground should be run. Campground store was well stocked. Lots of younger camping families here but found everyone very respectful. No full hook ups or honey wagon service available so if you plan on doing a long stay you might need to bring a tote or use the campground facilities. Would certainly return again or recommend this place to anyone.

This is a newly built campground with good bones. We stayed for a very busy weekend to take advantage of Lake Compounce Amusement Park. RV part of the campground is basically a flat open gravel field. Trees have been planted but will take some years before any decent shade or when the campground has a better visual appeal. Campsites face each other but are staggered enough so you will not be looking directly at you camping neighbor. With that said I would recommend pulling into your site as far forward as possible for extra distance from your camping neighbor. Our water/electric was in good working order but our cable was mostly snow, asked the next site over and they had the same problem. We did report this. Staff was professional. Wi-Fi worked slow, we had good signal on our Verizon cell. Our main criticism on this park is as of now it is not gated 24 hrs per day and that is a security concern. Bathrooms were clean and showers were nicely set up with lots of extra space. In conclusion, this campground will improve with age.

With the direct access to two beaches and the cost per night is why we keep choosing this campground. Our W/E hookups were in good working order. No sewer available at campground. Typical beach area camping, place flat with little shade. Camp sites are grid style and on the small side. Bathrooms and showers were just okay. No Wi-Fi, but good signal on our Verizon cell phone. Campground offers two beaches, kayaking and fishing. Careful, many of the sites have manhole covers and sharp drop from the site asphalt which are trip hazards. We would return again.

We again enjoyed our stay, found continued improvements being made to the campground. Some of which are 8, 50amp WES sites along with some additional WE sites. Also with the much needed removal of the dilapidated hotel building has drastically improved the overall looks of the campground. Geography at the campground is mostly open on a slightly graded hill. Our hookups were in good working order. Our WiFi was slow, okay signal on our Verizon cell phone. Owners were professional, friendly and informative and will go out of their way to make sure your stay is enjoyable. Would certainly return again or recommend this place to anyone.

As mentioned on previous reviews the value in this park is its access to NYC. Sites are small with very little space left over, especially when the Rv slides are extended. If possible I would recommend sites closer to the office area/front commuter parking lot. Lots of noisy construction that starts promptly by 7:30am by back area sites. In addition, noticed lots of dirt blowing in from the construction area onto the back part of the camp sites. Our hookups were in good working order. Bathrooms/showers were okay. Staff was professional. At night place quiets down enough where sleeping was not an issue. Wi-Fi & Verizon cell was at a minimum signal. We would return again.

We again enjoyed our stay at Old Mill Stream Campground. This is a very well maintained and landscaped campground. Staff was professional, friendly and informative. Camp store was nicely stocked. Our full hookups were in good working order. Our campsite alone with the other sites we noticed had crushed stone put down and looked level. All the roads in the campground that we saw were paved and the campground geography was moderately wooded and somewhat level. Wi-Fi worked well, good signal on our Verizon cell phone. Nice destination and home base type campground to explore the Lancaster area. Bathrooms and showers are spot on clean. Showers have plenty of hooks, space and a large bench to put your stuff on. Campground is very pet friendly and has two enclosed heated pavilions for get togethers. Our only concern was the busy rte 30 traffic which makes it tough to leave or get into the campground We enjoyed this campground and would certainly return or recommend this place to anyone.

This is a campground we really enjoyed. Place is divided into four areas. We stayed in area 4 which was water electric only. Most of the sites in our area were private, above average in size, level and had beautiful native landscaping. We had good signal on our Verizon cell. All the roads in the campground that we saw were paved and the campground geography was lightly wooded and somewhat level. In addition the 3 other areas of the campground we didn’t see anything that was over the top as far as not enough space between sites or any sites being excessively unlevel. One issue that we found unacceptable were the bathrooms and showers, noticed only the toilets and sinks were cleaned while we looked at the same dirt and grime on the bathroom floors for our entire stay. Also the bathrooms/showers were in a desperate need of a complete makeover. This all said we though area 4 was the nicest part of the campground so if you can deal with out the full hookups I would recommend that area, we would return again.

This has become our favorite getaway in CT. Super large sites with lots of wooded space between your neighbors, something you just don’t see in CT to often. Campground is heavily wooded and slightly hilly. Our hookups were in good working order. Friendly and helpful camp Hosts. The lake which is an easy walk from the campground is perfect for fishing or kayaking. Miles of scenic hiking trails that are easy on the feet. Our Verizon cell phone worked well. Dump station was in good working order. This is a quiet campground that caters to campers that are looking to enjoy nature and as always found everyone very respectful. Would certainly return again or recommend this place to anyone.

Let me start by saying we really enjoyed our stay here. Geography at the campground was moderately to heavily wooded and slightly hilly. Roads that we noticed were paved. Our site was above average in size and had crushed stone put down though I had to use several boards to level the trailer. Noticed many other sites not level either. Our power box was in good working order but there is no water hookups at any of the campground sites though there is water filling stations when you enter the campground. In addition, no honey wagon service available so if you plan on doing a long stay you might need to bring a tote or use the campground facilities. No Wi-Fi but okay signal on our Verizon cell phone. Dog friendly campground. Staff was professional and friendly. Campground store was small but had all the essentials. Our location at the campground was on the far side away from the amusement park but with the park bus service making rounds every 15 minutes meant no walking to the park, which made everything very convenient . Lots of younger camping families here but found everyone very respectful. Would certainly return again or recommend this place to anyone.

This is a very well maintained and landscaped campground. Geography at the campground is lightly wooded and level. Roads are gravel, sites are level and large. Most of the transient sites which included ours looked easy to get into. Our site hookups were in good working order. As mentioned on a previous review most of the lake front sites are occupied by seasonals but they do have a beautiful landscaped rock pier that over looks the lake for everyone's enjoyment. One issue was the bathrooms and showers, they were clean but there was no soap dispensers and nothing to dry your hands with. Also, they have a shared changing area for the shower stalls. Very dog friendly campground. Seasonals sites well maintained. Just a great place to relax and enjoy viewing the lake. Owner was professional, friendly and informative and will go out of his way to make sure your stay is enjoyable. Don’t forget to stop up the road at McKee’s island pub & pizza, great food and beer. Would certainly return again or recommend this place to anyone.

This is a campground under new ownership. Owners have sunk their hearts into upgrading all of the facilities at the campground. Some of the improvements are the new camp store, upgraded/new bathrooms, rec hall,pool, cottages, pavilion for get togethers and so much more. Geography at campground is mostly open on a slightly graded hill. Our hookups were in good working order. One issue was the C area sites which had little privacy between sites because of the location of the power boxes, my guess the owners will address this issue also. Campfire wood was the driest we have ever seen. Our Wi-Fi was poor, okay signal on our Verizon cell phone. No full hook up sites as of now but campground offers a honey wagon service, dump station is in good working order. Owners were professional, friendly and informative and will go out of their way to make sure your stay is enjoyable. Would certainly return again or recommend this place to anyone.

This is our yearly return visit to Nickerson Park. They were not able to accommodate us with the site we would have liked but they got us a over sized full hookup site which worked out great. Staff professional and friendly. Geography at campground is level with open and shaded areas. Most sites, especially the non river sites, have enough space where backing in and should not be difficult. One change for this year is the old restroom building in the center of the campground has been replace with a new building. Campground is clean and decently maintained. Owner offers worship service at the rec hall every Sunday. Would certainly return again.

This is a very well maintained and landscaped campground. Staff was professional, friendly and informative. Campground is moderately wooded, good shade and has paved roads. Our full hookups were in good working order. Our campsite was level and had stone put down. Noticed most of the other sites looked the same. Beware of the T-sites if you have a larger RV. Noticed some RV’s having difficulty getting into them with little space left over. Camp store was nicely stocked, campfire wood was expensive by dry. Wi-Fi worked well, good signal on our Verizon cell phone. Nice destination and home base type campground to explore the Lancaster area. Bathrooms and showers are spot on clean, showers have plenty of hooks and a large bench to put your stuff on. Campground is very pet friendly and has two enclosed heated pavilions for get togethers. We enjoyed this campground and would certainly return or recommend this place to anyone.

Our first time visiting during the off season. Found the campground only 1/3 full, a nice change from the peak summer months. We had no problem with our hookups. Typical beach area camping; place flat with little shade. Camp sites are grid style and on the small side. Bathrooms and showers were just so-so. No Wi-Fi, but good signal on our Verizon cell phone. Campground offers two beaches, kayaking, fishing and only 40 minutes drive to southern ME attractions. At $26 per night we find this campground a good valve. Would return again.

A lot of the full hook up sites were nicely landscaped, graded and level, but that was not the case with ours. To get proper drainage on my full hookups that I had paid for I had to plank up the trailer wheels by 4 inches. Our site was in dire need of much gravel to correct this problem. The electric and water connections were okay. In addition, I noticed a lot of the water/electric only sites were unlevel, no gravel and with bare tree roots showing. Putting the site issues aside the campground was very clean and maintained. Wi-Fi and cell phone worked well. Campground is mostly level with mix of open to lightly wooded areas. Staff was professional, friendly and informative. Wi-Fi and cell phone worked well. Very nice camp store. Campground is very dog friendly with nice centrally located dog park. Some campground noise after quiet hours.
