We spent a 4 day weekend here with our 4 year old grandson. We had a wonderful site (13D) that was very large, level, and had water, electric, and sewer. The people who run this place are very friendly and accommodating. Most of the sites are larger than we have seen at "resort" campgrounds where the owners are trying to get every cent they can out of the property by placing people on top of each other. The campground is well laid out. The lake is clean and inviting and there are 2 swim out docks for jumping and lounging. Personal floats are allowed. There are all kinds of boats to rent, or you can bring your own. We stayed too long at the beach one night and grandson was starving, so we ordered pizza at the campground pub and it was surprisingly good and very fairly priced. All of the bathrooms were clean. There were many activities for all ages and interests. One of the things that I liked best about the way this campground is laid out is that there seems to have been some thought put into the planning of seasonal and transient sites. We have been to places where we feel like we don't belong because we are the only transients in among all seasonals. This was not the case at Acres of Wildlife. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and will be back.

We stayed here because we needed to be close to home but still wanted to be away. We stayed on the pond in the newer big rig area. The drawback to this is that there are no trees in this section and it was an incredibly hot weekend. Our 4 year old grandson LOVED catching frogs, fish, and turtles right from our campsite in the pond. We only used the pool in the rear of the campground and loved it. Despite the heat, it was not overcrowded. That was not the case at the main pool area. Bayley's offers many activities and entertainment, but the venues haven't grown with the campground. They are in the process of building another structure in the newer part of the campground and hopefully that will alleviate some of the crowding. This campground is in a perfect location for visiting Old Orchard Beach, Pine Point Beach, Palace Playland, and is only a short drive from Aquaboggon and Funtown/Splashtown USA. The campground also offers trolley rides to these places, but again, couldn't handle the crowds that wanted to use them. We tried to play mini-golf but the course was in horrible condition. As we walked the campground we saw some areas where the sites were roomy, but in other areas, if you have a slide out AND an awning, as many trailers, 5th wheels and motorhomes do, you will be TOUCHING your neighbor's site. I hope that with new development some of these growing pains might be addressed.

Very nice place. Since it was so off season, there wasn't anything going on. We were in the safari field for a family reunion. We rented 4 sites and 4 deluxe cabins. Kids loved the bounce pillow and playgrounds. Sites were level with water and electric. No sewered sites in the field, but dump station was convenient and clean. Great restrooms. We chose this place for it's proximity to Mystic Aquarium and it's ability to site our whole family together. We will go back again.

We had 2 sites. One with 2 tents and one with our 35' fifth wheel and a tent. We could have easily all fit on one site! They are the largest sites we have ever found. The fireplace was amazing. They are all built into the site using existing rock ledges. The pool was just great. We were in it every day. We were camping with our 4 adult children, their significant others, and our 3 year old grandson. Everyone agreed that Moose Hillock was great. The only drawbacks we saw: There is a 30 minute or more drive to do anything over poorly maintained roads. There is NO cell service (between us we had 3 different carriers) and only one small area of the cafe that gets Wi-Fi. The bathrooms and showers smell kind of mildewy. This would be easily remedied by cleaning with bleach and putting in fans to move the air. But NONE of these things we deal breakers for us. We truly enjoyed our time there and will probably be back. We already have family members who are booked there because of the way we raved about it.

Bringing our full size pickup, kayak, and 35' fifth wheel to the Vineyard was such an adventure. Don't be afraid to try it! The campground was well laid out, extremely clean, with friendly helpful staff. The location is right on the bikeway and convenient to everything Martha's Vineyard has to offer. Well stocked store, well kept playground, and immaculate bathrooms and showers. We were stunned that the week we were there the campground was less than 25% full. A couple of notables: the only place you can get a Wi-Fi signal is at the office/game room complex and we could not get a single TV station despite the complexity of our antennae system. Only a handful of seasonal campers here. Loved it.

We only stayed here one night as a stop when getting off the Martha's Vineyard Ferry. The campground is very clean and the staff were immensely friendly and helpful. It abuts the bike trail. However, the site we were given was nearly impossible to get into. Roads are washed dirt, very narrow, twisty and rocky. If it weren't for our friendly seasonal neighbor we would have never gotten into the site. A walk around the campground shows this to be true of most sites. Very tight with poor approaches. More than 70% of the campground seems to be seasonals. It served our purpose for one night, but would probably not plan an entire week here.

Beautifully clean park. Very helpful and friendly staff. We had our grandson (3) there for Pirate Weekend and he had a blast. Great location for Funtown/Splashtown USA, Aquaboggon, and Old Orchard Beach. They do a fantastic pancake/belgian waffle breakfast EVERY day. Lots of lodging available (cabins, park models, rental trailers). We will definitely be back.

Clean park, nice sandy beach on small lake. Despite the number of seasonals, we felt very welcome and were made part of all activities. This is not always the case in campgrounds with high numbers of seasonals. It was Memorial Day Weekend and they offered a nice mix of entertainment. Great kayaking only a couple of miles away. We will be back.

We found this campground on an earlier biking trip and decided that we would come back. We stayed for a week. We did not have a sewered site, so brought a portable tank so we would not have to move the camper (5th wheel) around during our stay. This is a very nice city campground. It is just minutes from the waterfront city of Burlington. The park is situated ON the bikeway and just across the bikeway from North Beach on Lake Champlain. We had a very nice, large wooded site. The only thing that would have made it better: a sewer hookup. Not many sites do. The biggest drawback to this campground is that all beach traffic has to go through the middle of it. There was a lot of traffic during the hot summer week we were here, and many of the drivers were obviously intoxicated when they left at the end of the day.

This is a beautiful park and we were surprised how few people were here in the high season. We realized why when we used the rest rooms. We were in B loop and the smell of mold hits you before you even enter the restroom area. The building is cement block that is painted but apparently the paint they used was not an epoxy base that would not support mold growth, as should have been used. It is not really fair to say the restrooms are not clean, as they are cared for every day, but there is no working ventilation (fan was too small, and broken) and there are not enough screened windows to let the building ever dry out. I thought perhaps that it was only this one bathhouse that was this way, but we only found one within the entire campground that was borderline usable, but since the campground has no sewer-ed sites, we had no choice but to use it. The other reason this campground was nearly empty for the week we were there is that there is no water access. The campground is built around a reservoir and you can not swim (or enter) the water from anyplace unless you are in a boat. A large swimming pool would have gone a long way to making the intolerable heat livable. Bottom line, use this campground for weekends only, and off season when it is cooler.

This is as close to a 10 as you can get. If this place had a pool or pond it would get the extra point. Beautifully laid out campground. Nice mix of seasonals and transients. Extremely friendly, helpful staff. Excellent playground and mini golf (best mini golf we have found in a campground). Beautiful store (post and beam)with all the necessities. Very pet friendly. Extremely clean bathrooms and showers. Only 12 minutes to Hampton Beach and the Casino Ballroom. We will definitely go back. This is the first place we have ever seen that we would even consider as a seasonal.

NOTE: GPS does not recognize Norris Point Road. The correct address is Norris Hill Road which ends at the campground. Small, mostly seasonal campground. Sites can not be booked for less than 7 days until after Memorial Day. Minimal activities: crafts, bingo, weekend horseshoe tournament. The Saturday night we stayed they had a great band. Non seasonal sites are grassy with very little shade. Small store with basics. 6 miles to get to any services. Too many seasonals tear around on golf carts for such a small campground. Lake is beautiful and quite warm for Maine. We probably won't go back.

We were in site #30, which is a pull through. It would have been very tight if the other sites around us were full, but there were very few people in the campground. . The sites are packed sand with no grass or pine needle cover. It rained every day we were there and the camper got filthy with sand. BRING RUGS! Dogs are not allowed on beach area (really river gravel, not sand) or in the river at all from this property even though hundreds of dogs are in the saco river daily with their camping/canoeing owners. Small well stocked store. Laundry $1.50 per wash, $1.50 per dry. They have a book swap area in the laundry. Small very dated playground area. You can hear Rt 16 traffic. Convieient to North Conway attractions/shopping, but there are better campgrounds. We won't go back.

We had site E which is a water and electric only site, but E and F are probably two of the biggest, most private spots in the campground. We got a good sam discount. We chose this campground for it's proximity to a dedicated bike path (excellent) and because it is halfway between my brother's house and ours. The campground had a well stocked store, clean heated pool, very clean bathrooms and showers and miles of hiking trails adjacent to the campground. There were no planned activities or entertainment during our stay. Very pet friendly. We will definitely go back.

This is a great place to stay for exploring Newport RI. The campground is small, but very well laid out, and perfectly clean. Our site, #207 was huge, but with one drawback. We needed to run to Walmart to pick up more water and electric connections. The hookups were on an odd part of the site. Bathrooms were immaculate. Nice playground. No store, but within 3 miles you can get virtually anything you want. Very helpful staff. When booking I was told there were no full hookup sites available, but we saw many that were never used. Possibly booked for long term but not moved in yet? We will definitely be back.
