Black Bear Campground, Salisbury, Massachusetts

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $55.00
Overall Rating:      

Two, very small pools, one is more suited as a hot tub but with cold water. The sides of the pool are brown and I felt nervous swimming in the water. It is only open from noon to 7pm which is ridiculous in the heat of summer with children. They do have a beautiful park for children, looks new. The WiFi is awful. The bathrooms are the worst I've seen in a while. Don't use them during the weekend, gross. But the toilets were standard during the week. The showers are perhaps the worst I've ever used in all my years of camping. The water takes forever to regulate which means waiting for scalding hot water to cool enough to get in. One of the three showers had a blocked drain so the water pools at your feet up to your ankles. I felt trapped! The shower heads are ancient and point in one direction only, against the shower wall which makes it awkward to rinse your hair or to rinse. 50 cents for 5 minutes, but 3 are used waiting to get a safe temperature. Overall the campground is neglected. The grass all around was long when we arrived and now on our 5th day, still not mowed. The place is scruffy and run down. Also, lots of ant hills on each site, so bring ant powder. However, the location is great and if you don't use the bathrooms you'll be okay. Really. We camped at Black Bear Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Butterfly Camping Resort, Jackson, New Jersey

Date of Stay: August, 2014 - $60.00
Overall Rating:      

Very clean sites, the young man who takes care of the grounds works very hard and does a great job! However, the washrooms had some flaws, no soap in the men's washroom the whole two weeks we stayed, only soap in one container in the ladies room, their toilet tissue is the worst, it tears at each single sheet and I know that sounds silly, but the floor is littered with toilet tissue and it was frustrating. The pool closes officially at 6pm which was a bit stressful if you were trying to get back from outings in time for your kids to swim. However, they will keep it open till 8pm but after 6pm it can close at their discretion. I never understand that as the pool is such an important feature for families. Why limit it especially when paying $60 per night. Also, their miniature gold is $4 per person and my kids paid and left midway through as it was not the best. I don't think they should describe themselves as a resort as there was nothing going on the whole time we were there, but we could have missed it too. Also, the staff are friendly enough, but their signs are a tad bit sarcastic. Oh, and their pool is really lovely, large, clean and heated so that was nice! We did feel quite far from things even though we chose this as it was within proximity to beaches, cities, etc. The long country roads and many lights along the way made the travel seem longer. We camped at Butterfly Camping Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Bangor / Holden KOA (formerly Red Barn Campground), Holden, Maine

Date of Stay: July, 2014 - $50.00
Overall Rating:      

Nice spacious lot. They are renovating the campground and it shows. Nice fresh crushed rock on roads, brand new bathrooms which were well kept. Very friendly owner. Decent wifi - enough to check your emails. The pool was warm and overall clean, but it definitely could be improved. There were items on the bottom of the pool, dirt on the walls of the pool, the furniture could do with some cleaning, but the hours are generous, lots of activities going on, and strict about cars driving slowly. We camped at Bangor / Holden KOA (formerly Red Barn Campground) in a Travel Trailer.
