We stayed on a spacious site with full hooks up with a beautiful view. The owners are new and very friendly. Quiet and peaceful environment. We visited the Howe Caverns, which was close by and drove to Cooperstown to the Baseball Hall of Fame. That was close to an hour away, but a nice trip and nice area. We also drove to the Herkimer Diamond Mine, which was about an hour and twenty minutes. Nice area to visit. The only negative if you want to call it that was a rule that prohibited use of AC, space heaters, etc. The hookups were 30 amp, so I don't see the problem and it appeared that it was not enforced. It was rather warm and I did use my AC. All in all a pretty good place.

Our second time to the area and second time to this park. Good location and friendly staff. We reserved 6 sites for our group in the full hookup area. No frills, but the price is right and the free shuttle around the area is a plus. The only negative that I have is the laundry. Two of the four wash machines were down the entire time we were there. We expected to do a few loads during the week and could not. This should of been addressed asap, with all the families camping and waiting to use the machines they could of done something, just saying. All in all, good stay.

It is a dated campground. Went there with a group for the holiday weekend. This was recommend by one our friends who we camp with, they like the lake. Many trees need trimming, one party in our group had to trim branches before they could get into their site. Payed extra for cable, it was not good. My 30 amp service kept going off when using the AC. The owner said he has been changing out the breakers as they go, how about fixing them before they don't work properly. Many improvements needed. One of the worst places I've stayed at. The only up side was I was with several of my camping families.

Stayed in the (s) section, which was pull through and had sewer hookups. We booked this early in the year and traveled with several other RVers. Our sites were pretty good, however fire pit and sewer placement needs some reconfiguring. WiFi was only available at the pool and laundry area and was ok at best. Pool was clean and enjoyable when we used it. This park was a very good alternative to the high priced places around Bar Harbor. We were out every day anyway exploring Acadia National Park, which is awesome. The free shuttle into the village or park was a added bonus. This feature is available throughout Bar Harbor. Hadley point waterway within walking distance, great for launching kayaks or jut having a fire on the beach at night, we did both. Staff very friendly. All in all nice place to stay at a very good price. Would return.

Nice park close to the Mystic area. Left one day to Kayak Mystic River and spent a day in the Mystic Village. Great location and nice park if you want to visit the area. Nice pool and some scheduled events for kids and adults. I am a local, living about a half hour away and I didn't realize how nice this park was. Will return again. Price was with discount.

I've got to agree with the previous posts. This is nice campground; however, they are not a resort, and they have increased their prices to reflect the resort in their name. Yes, they do have some nice things: pool, lake, snack bar, friendly staff and clean property. But they have NO cable, poor Wi-Fi, but it's free, poor dog policy, and very little activities for free. They used to charge $5 for their mini golf, which is a very nice course. This year they wanted $8. You do the math; that's a lot on top of camping fees which are just too high, and if you have kids, it costs more. The final straw is the elimination of the free night in the fall that made it worth it for those who live locally and want to extend their Sunday and clean up their RV for the season. I camp a few times a year at Odetah and camp with 12-15 other families. We have agreed to take Odetah off our list. Greed in this economy is not they way to run a business.

Very nice little place to stay in Vermont. Easy access off of I-89. Good sites with free wi-fi, which worked well. Simple, friendly, and affordable. Would camp here again.

Nice state park with no hook-ups. Went with a group, as we do yearly. Staff are constantly driving around checking on cars parked on the grass and unauthorized parking. Other than that pretty nice place. Nice beach, hiking, and biking.

I really like this campground, but they are starting to price themselves out of my range. They charge extra for just about everything including kids. Their Wi-Fi is free, but has never really worked well enough to bother starting up the laptop. They call themselves a Resort Park this year. I'm not so sure I would agree; nevertheless, a decent park, just too expensive for me.

This is one of the best parks I've been to. Staff is attentive, bathrooms are clean, and sites have plenty of room. Boat and kayak rentals are very affordable and the lake is beautiful. The park has two large heated pools and a smaller one for the little ones. This is our first trip to New Hampshire and we really enjoyed the area.

Basically this is parking lot for RV's on the water. Great view with swimming, fishing kayaking, boating, and digging for clams. Dry camping of course, but not that bad. No showers make it difficult to clean up after being at the beach, however, you can drive to another State park to shower. All in all, pretty cool place to check out.

Nice park with a nice lake, however, a pool is needed at this park. Park is clean and camp store is very nice. Road is tight for those of us with bigger rigs. My 32' five wheel was difficult. Owner frequently driving around and making sure everything is good. Rumor is that the place is for sale??

Great place to stay when going to DC. Very friendly staff, clean sites, and close to attractions. Two nice pools, great snack bar, and lounge is nice too. We really liked this park.

Stayed on a concrete pad, this was nice. This was my forth trip to Ocean Lakes. It's more like a small community than a RV park. Enjoyable visit again, but I still don't like the golf cart parades at night and cars that speed around, sorry to say, but the majority of this is the fault of young drivers. Definitely will return.

This campground has it all. Nice pool, nice lake with a patio snack bar, which is a new addition. Free WiFI is always a hit with us. This park is clean and well maintained. Office, store, and adult lounge are nice as well. Weekend activities are good for the whole family. Fishing and boating in a nice lake is very pleasant. My only complaint is the the sites that are next to the Rte 2, which is a two lane highway. The truck traffic is very loud all night. There are about 20 sites in this area. All in all I highly recommend staying in this Southeastern Connecticut Campground, you will not be sorry.
