This was OK for an overnight though overpriced, which seems to be the norm for this region. Perhaps because it is close to Old Sturbridge Village which we did not stop in to visit during our short stay. Big campground, seemed to be mostly for either seasonals or people living in their RVs. Quiet,almost deserted. Only one other overnighter came in. We were first given a site in the meadows area which turned out to require a drive up the hill on a narrow dirt road and down into an empty, isolated grassy field with no restrooms. We returned for a different site nearer the other RV that arrived when we did. This site assigned turned out to have two cars parked in it, so we took the empty one next to it and walked back to the office for a third visit. Restrooms and showers were adequate. Best feature of this park was good cable TV. The park was hit by a tornado in 2011 and is still showing effects, with construction dumpster etc on site. Would look for other options next time. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The campground has made many improvements since last year. Every site now has 50 amp service, we had no issues running everything. The bathrooms have been updated and repainted. The water pressure was great. Spent a lot of time in the pool, it was very clean. We were able to get on the internet if we were near the office. The Kayak trail was open and clean of debris but the beach itself still needs a little cleanup. While we were there they had a Pig Roast and horseshoe tourney, there weren't any other activities that weekend.I will definitely camp there again, as I only see it getting better since the Tornado hit it in 2011. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We signed up to be seasonal campers at this campground in April 2011. Unfortunately, the campground didn't have any activities for campers as they told us. We had no cable television whatsoever. We also had electrical issues. Unfortunately for them they were hit by a tornado in June 2011 and have been closed since. All the campers do feel bad that this happened to them but we sure hope that we get repaid for the fees we paid for the entire season. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Two motor homes pulled in and attendant assigned a "pull-thru" on the top of a 25 degree hill. Motorhomes don't climb in 4 wheel drive. Reassigned second back in site. 30 amp power was actually 109 volts with 16 amps. Surge protector did its job and protected the rig. Next site was back in with 111 volts and 12 amps. We demanded a refund of the security deposit and site charge, after much screaming we got our refund, without owner/managers assistance, and left the park. This place should be rated -10 on all scales. Do not go to this park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park was beautiful, had pretty landscaping. We tried to use the 30 amp service to run one air conditioner and our surge protector shut us down immediately. We then tried to run our fantastic fan only and the surge protector shut us down again. We couldn't run any appliances at all. Low voltage was a major problem in the park. We talked to other campers who were also having problems. The management didn't seem to want to refund us our money as we were going to leave. We finally asked to be moved to a site away from others and ran our generator for electric power the rest of the night. THe low rate we paid was due to using Passport America. We camped here in a Motorhome.
People live in campers year round here. I found insulation screwed to the outside of trailers in prep for the winter months. They also seemed to lack a landscape crew for leaves in October. This was the off season, so not sure about landscape in summer months. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
My family booked the weekend here, and only stayed for one night. The campground was nothing like it depicted itself on the internet. They put me in what could only be described as a parking lot, where the fire pit for the site next to ours, was 3 feet from our camper. There were no activities for the kids, you could not swim in the lake and the grounds were in need of up keep. The bathrooms needed updating: my daughter’s knees hit the door when seated and her feet and calves were sticking outside of the door. The next day, we went to Sturbridge Jellystone Park, booked the remainder of the week and successfully salvaged our vacation. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
[ 5 / 10 ]
Passport America rate. This place packs them in tight. Mostly filled with seasonal campers and a good place for kids. So so for older couples. We had hot weather and had to run our genset to power the A/C's. The 'transiet' area with about 12 sites was on a 100 amp circuit (do the math). Probably would avoid this place in July/August when schools are out. But it is probably ok when schools are in. There is a really nice golf course (Heritage CC) nearby that has a weekday senior rate of $30 ($36 non senior) for 18 holes with cart and lunch. We camped here in a Motorhome.
One to avoid. We called ahead after reserving through CTC--called twice to ensure that we could get a site from which we could use our internet satellite dish because we have to in order to do our jobs. Both times we were assured that we would be able to because we would be placed in "The Meadow." Not only were we not put there on arrival; it was closed and the road to that area was impassable in a motorhome. We had confirmed a site with full hookups and 30 amps. We were put in a 20 amp site without sewer--and no chance of a shot at the satellite, so no chance at getting the work done that we had to do. Whereas we had intended to get our work done in the morning and have a pleasant afternoon and part of the Sunday in a tourist village nearby, we had to leave immediately the next morning instead of staying through our three nights because these people lied to us twice and about three different elements of the reservation. There's no excuse for this. If they don't want CTC members, they need to drop the program. We could easily have gone elsewhere. All they had to do was say no when we first called to ask our questions. (We were not the only CTC members there treated this way. The nice people next to us were told they could pay $10 for one night of cable TV and $25 to dump their tanks after having reserved a full hookup site. They were equally happy. Perhaps this place treats everyone this way?) We camped here in a Motorhome.
Beach is OK. Wooded sites are very uneven and hook-ups are often far away. We were told to bring 100' of hose! We ended up on essentially a parking lot with an obstructed view of the water. Owner is very abrupt and rude. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here as Coast to Coast members. The Coast to Coast sites are called the Courtyard. Those sites are level and easy to back into. Half of these sites are satellite friendly. Verizon cell service was nonexistent. We would come back as an overnight if we had to. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground needs a lot of help. At least the check-in was friendly and efficient. Interior roads are rough, signage is inadequate, and some sites have utility problems. Equipment and junk are scattered around the campground. Due to heavy rain, the grassy sites were somewhat boggy in spite of fairly good drainage so leveling was a bit challenging. Wi-Fi didn't work. If in the area again, I would try very hard to find another overnight campground. Sadly, the Brimfield area is still showing the effects of the 2011 tornado. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed here for a family get together. I would not camp here again. We camped at a pull-through site in the field so we would get some sunshine. The roads are gravel and are in poor condition. The sites were mostly grass, but are not level. The water pressure was extremely low, although I was able to take a shower. The mens restrooms needs to be updated they are in very poor condition, broken urinal, peeling paint. They need major work. There is only one restroom for the entire campgrounds. There is junk everywhere, old picnic tables, old trucks, old equipment, old everything. Most of the campers are seasonal. There is a pond for fishing and swimming, if you dare. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground is clean, but cluttered. The only problem I have is that every Memorial Day, the bathrooms get disgusting and never have any soap. The toilet paper does get replenished but the toilets all stay stopped up. The owners are friendly and cooperative and serve awesome sundaes on Sunday for $3. Our family is quite large and they are very accommodating and even provide a large fire ring so we can have one huge fire. We camped here in a Tent.
THE GOOD: It was close to home and has level, large sites. THE BAD: Almost too much to say. Junk and rotting trailers parked at the entrance. A mountain of debris (mostly scrap metal) out front by the office. A group of tents next to us that had a hatchback opened with rap going well into dark. Some seasonal people creating a domestic disturbance at midnight. The children of the "domestic" couple went in my trailer while we went to the beach area. Went through drawers. Not sure if anything was taken but drawer contents were on the floor. Seasonal trailers that should be condemned. Swimming pond was pretty nasty. CONCLUSION: Never again We camped here in a Motorhome.
There were 4 positives about our stay at the Village Green Campground. The office staff was very friendly, the price was right, the sites for overnighters were large and easy to get into, and it was the closest campground to our intended destination in Brimfield. On the negative side, the electrical power fluctuated from about 117 volts to less than 102 volts (where our EMS unit shut off power to the motor home due to low voltage to prevent damage to electrical components - that happened continually), water pressure was extremely low, the overall appearance of the area around the office area was cluttered, and half of the washers (2 of 4) and one of the 4 dryers in the laundry were not working. Most of the spaces are extended stay sites, but the overnight spaces are isolated from them by trees, the laundry/restroom building, and the rec center While not highly satisfied with this campground, we would stay here again under the same circumstances. There were other campgrounds west of Brimfield that we did not visit, and we would check them out before staying at the Village Green next time. We camped here in a Motorhome.
