Date of Stay: August, 2012
We stayed here three nights over the Labor Day Weekend so the park was full. Despite this, noise levels were kept low, the park was kept clean and the staff was extremely helpful. My kids loved the salt water swimming pool and we visited it each day. The bathhouse is brand new, and kept in a very clean condition. Although this park is located adjacent to the interstate we could hear no interstate noise from our site. However, there was a drag strip located several miles away which entertained drag races until 2:00 a.m. on Saturday night. This park would have received a 9 rating had the sites been a bit larger. A slide from the Motorcoach in the site adjacent to us obstructed our fire pit so we could not build a fire. Warmer weather negated the effects of this deficiency. Overall a great park with a friendly staff. We will stay here again.

Beautiful setting and convenient location make this a terrific campsite for the Williamsburg area. New concrete patios to accompany the concrete pads keep the sites clean. The pool is clean and well kept. Showers and bathhouses are also well kept. The only drawback to this campground (and the only reason it did not get a 10) is the dreadfully slow internet Wi-Fi connection. Don't miss the Bounce Pillow: the kids loved it.

This park would have received a 10 had the site they placed us in not been so small. I had to back my wheels to the edge of the pad to make my 40 foot 5th wheel fit. It was level and clean with easy hook ups. In fairness to them, they did say they would look for another site for me, but this one was right across from the playground so I made due. Staff is extremely friendly, visible, and attentive. Bathhouses are clean and relatively new. The pools are great for kids, and the small Star Café has great ice cream. This park does get rather crowded, but everyone was well behaved and conscious of quiet hours.

A great, family friendly campground. We camped here for Memorial Day Weekend. This campground would have received a 10 had the pool been operational as denoted on the website (in fairness to them, the liner they ordered for this season was the wrong size and they could not make their Memorial Day Weekend opening as planned). The staff was friendly and engaged, and despite cool temperatures and cloudy skies the first two days, they managed to make the experience fun for all with Ice Cream Socials, Tie-Die T-shirt design for the kids, a water slide and other activities for adults. Despite having an absolutely full campground, restrooms were clean and well kept, noise levels were monitored during quiet hours and traffic was kept slow. Lots of kids on bikes, a great playground, and the ever popular Moose Trolley gave a real family feel to this place. Located within 5 miles of LL Bean and the Freeport Outlets, the location is prime. We would definitely camp here again.

As other reviewers have suggested, this “campground” is mostly seasonal and semi-permanent residents. I would go so far as to call it a trailer park. While it seems relatively well kept and maintained some of the trailers in this park have been here for a very long time (flat tires, rusted trailers, etc.) While they go out of their way to advertise this campground as a recreational site, we were one of only a handful of recreational campers when we arrived on a Thursday night. The weekend boasted many more recreational campers (many in tents). There are no sewer hook-up and showers at the bath houses are coin operated with very limited water pressure. The site had an asphalt pad, but would not accommodate my 40 foot 5th wheel and the back in was difficult. I questioned the judgement of the staff after they assigned tent campers with a 135 lbs Rottweiler to the site next to us (we have two very small children). The pool looked clean and well kept, but we did not visit it. They held an “Old Fashioned Day” with carnival type games for the kids (for a fee) and charged $2.50 for a hotdog and $3.50 for a hamburger (a bit steep in my mind). The Wi-Fi advertised was non-existent. We could not even get their router to register on our computers, and we camped less than 100 meters from the office. The area around East Haddam is lovely and nestled into the countryside of the Connecticut River: this was the only upside to our visit. Needless to say we spent little time at the campground. At $42 a night for water and electric this campground was hardly worth it. We will not return.

Beautiful, well maintained campground nestled into the rolling hills of the Brandywine Valley. Concerns about roads leading to the campground may have been overstated by others. I pulled a 39 foot 5th wheel with little issue and crossed the bridge with room to spare (without on coming traffic). Restrooms and showers are clean and well maintained. Pool is nicely situated with late afternoon shade. Full hook-up sites on the hill area are spacious enough with room for two vehicles and the camper (we had my truck and my wife's van). Access roads are slightly better than gravel and our site was very level. Staff was friendly and courteous. We wish we could have stayed longer and will stay here again.

Well kept and clean park. We arrived in 106 degree heat and our first site had power output issues. We were accommodated with another site, but had to move in the heat, to their credit the staff was very helpful. Hippo slide was closed due to the heat the first day we were here. The next day we spent at Busch Gardens Water Country and had no use for the slide. Level concrete pads make set up and leveling easy. Roads are gravel and dusty when dry. Bath house was clean and well maintained. We would stay here again.

Great campground with wonderful staff/owners. Although it is a small campground (and very tight for maneuvering a big rig), it is immaculately kept and clean. We have young children and the playground was clean and safe. The salt water pool was in great condition and very clean. The only drawbacks to this campground are it's proximity to HWY 72 (a four lane with lots of traffic/noise) and the fact that people are allowed to smoke at the pool. Other than that we really enjoyed our stay. Don't miss the Sunday breakfast that the staff prepares for their guests free of charge. We'll be back when we are in the Huntsville area again.

We arrived for Easter weekend on Good Friday around 6:00 pm and found several Big Rig sites still available (since it is a state park, the majority of sites are first come, first serve). Sites were level and gravel with nice stone picnic tables and fire pits. The bathrooms were clean and well maintained. This is a very busy (and large) campground, but everyone was very friendly. The camp store is relatively new with limited selection. The sewer hook-up is at the opposite end of the site (rear) from the shore power (front), and in order for my power cord to reach I had to buy an additional sewer hose at the camp store and splice it into my existing hose. This was a small inconvenience for an otherwise clean and fun campground.
