We had a very pleasant experience at Mountain Lake. We stayed in site 74. The sites were large and flat and we had a great view of the pond. The bathrooms were spotless, showers free and the staff was friendly. Our two kids enjoyed the pool and modern playscape. Pets are welcome but the $3/night charge is a bit excessive. Wi-Fi is available for free on one device. Additional connections are $3/day. We used a Verizon card which had slow but usable service. 30A service was stable and water pressure was high, so bring a regulator. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Lovely campground. Only stayed one night. Campsite was level, though not huge. Beautiful looking cottage down the road from us. Extremely well maintained. Lots of playground area for the kids. There is a beach area, though we did not get the chance to use it. Pool was clean. Lots of washrooms, several showers, all extremely clean. Beautiful scenery: mountains in background, water view. I would return to this campground, though it was expensive: the most expensive of our entire trip! We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
The second you pull in it is obvious this campground is meticulously maintained. Beautiful location and the office/camp store is very nice. The owners are extremely personable and accommodating. Sites were well positioned for easy access. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a very well maintained park. The staff is friendly and helpful. The front sites are a little small for large rigs, but they have very nice sites behind the office area that can accommodate any size rig. The 50 amp service was very good, but the water pressure could be a little higher. The free WiFi worked great in coach, 66 channel free cable TV worked well. Our price reflected Passport rate. If in the area we would camp here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
NOT impressed; small sites, poor layout, hard to manuver the campgroud area, VERY hard to back in even a small trailer. Pull through sites are pitiful and VERY unlevel. Lake - wouldn't touch it with a 10 foot pole. Owners are rude, bossy, and forget trusting their website blog for a real review as they get rid of any review they do not like and only post their reviews that paint this campground as a great plce. We will never camp here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Pros: Attentive friendly staff; good size playground with up to date equipment; nice pond for boating, swimming, fishing; very clean rest rooms (cleaned 3x daily), camp store, fresh muffins and coffee daily, and quiet hours are enforced. Cons: The sites are small and close together, pool is small and very chlorinated. We camped here because it is near Santa's Village, which worked fine for us. If we were looking for a place to just get away and camp, this would not be one of our choices as the sites (especially the interior sites) are right on top of each other. The place was very clean, very well run, and had nice amenities though. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
This is a small campground, with very small sites for trailers. We had a very difficult time backing in our trailer, and we quite disappointed with the site we were offered, especially since we booked in advance. The women's washroom left much to be desired. The lake was not as clean as one would hope. The salt water pool was fine, and the game room was fine. Very little to do in the town - the nearest WalMart is about 15 miles away. Small grocery store is in town. We will never stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great place for a family to get away to. Nice and quiet, friendly family that owns it and is very hands on. It was very pleasant to be able to let the kids play without worry. Great playground area, pool area and small sandy beach on the lake for the kids. The shower/bathrooms were cleaned and well kept. We stayed at site 41 for 4 nights with full hook-up, and cable. Fifteen minutes to Santa's Village and other attractions in the area. We will be making a second trip up there this fall. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I would have rated it a 10 if I had been to more campgrounds to compare it to. We had a great time fishing and swimming. This was our first trip in our motorhome. There were 2 adults and three kids and we all had plenty to do for 3 days. The only downside is the campground is so close to our house (30 miles) it feels a little like cheating. I think we were in site 34 which had a nice amount of privacy. The sites along that row were also terraced at different levels so you weren't looking right into your neighbors windows. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Passport America rate for 50 amp, water, sewer, CATV and WiFi site. We ended up spending 6 nights here, owners are a wonderful young couple who as posted are actively working on improvements. We loved the area, Lancaster is a fairly large town for this far north. We traveling on US-2 and this was a great place to spend a few nights for some sight seeing. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Campground owners are actively managing it -- makes it a very nice place to be. Current owners have had it a while, but continue to invest money, such as new partially paved enter/exit roads. Lake scenery is beautiful, can rent kayaks/canoes on lake. Plenty to do at campground, but outside of it isn't much to do other than the scenery. Located just north of the White Mountains however, so a 30 minute drive can get you somewhere quite nice. Only issue here was the wooded forest made for quite a bunch of bugs. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We overnighted here. This is a beautiful location. Park is on a hillside above a small lake where you can fish or rent canoes, paddle boats, etc. The entire property is wooded and the facilities are very complete and well kept. The washroom is neat as are the restrooms and showers. The office staff was terrific and very welcoming. There is a separate building with a game room and meeting room. There is a small grocery supply section along with RV supplies and souvenirs section in the office building. The park is very child friendly and has brightly painted playground equipment. They even have a yurt for rent as well as cabins. The only negative is the many mosquitoes. On a walk to the rear of the property and down by the lake we were repeatedly bitten. Also we were unable to sit outside and enjoy at the lake. We will return prepared for the little rascals. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I have camped in 35 different states and this campground is the only one we always come back to when visiting New England. The campground has beautiful mountain views. The lake is very serene and the grounds are immaculate. During our last visit, we had to stay on a water/electric site due to all the full hookups being reserved. We used the restrooms regularly and they were always clean. The owners take pride in their restrooms and you can tell. They have many children's activities. The campground has a welcoming and safe feeling. The campground's rules are the same as other campgrounds, the only difference is that here they enforce them. This is one of the many reasons we keep coming back. The campground owner's story of why they bought the campground is an intreging and impressionable one. Next time you're planning to go up to Santa's Village or any other White Mtn attraction, don't pass this place by. We never do. We camped here in a Motorhome.

If you like rules you will love this campground. I would not recommend big groups. We brought 35 people (22 adults and the rest kids) all family to have a good time at this beautiful and clean campground. By 8:30pm Friday, We were told that a bear strolls through by 10pm and were told that people were concerned with our group and the noise before nightfall. I must say we were quiet and in control. Our group over took the pond side of the campground. There was no one else but our own family we could bother with noise. Our fire was more controlled that it has ever been, yet the owner came running out down the hill, nearly fell, to tell us the fire was "out of controll. " Saturday night they did nothing and there were people being loud everywhere. We stayed so our kids could have fun, but we will not go there again. They were rude as well. We saw no bear. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very misleading. We were very disappointed with our stay. The owners were new and we found them to be very rude. Quiet time is noted to be at ten o'clock and when that time comes, they mean quiet time. We were sitting at our fire just talking in a normal voice, we were not loud and the owners came tearing up the road in their golf cart and slammed on the brakes and started yelling at us to be quiet. The only time we saw the bathrooms clean were the day we arrived. Any other time they were filthy dirty. They were only cleaned once a day (if that). If you like an extremely quiet campground, you may want to check this place out and see for yourself. The only upside we found was the lake was very picturesque and the grounds were in good shape. The fish were small, but plentiful. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.

A great place with a lot of things to see in the area. Near the White Mountains. My kids loved the kyack rentals. A lot to do and priced so a family could afford. Bathrooms were like a KOA... very clean and nice. You will enjoy. The only thing that keeps this from a 10 was the highway noise off rt 3 at night. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This was an awkward, pull through grass site. Since the grass was wet, I needed 4X4 to pull up the grassy slope, into the site. Due to rain, my truck tires tore into the lawn, and my trailer slid slightly sideways and tore gouges in the grass. I needed a one inch board to level side to side. I had to lower the front of my travel trailer to within six inches of the ground to level the trailer, front and rear. The rear of the site was so steep; I had to pull my trailer ½ of the way into the site so I was comfortable my trailer would no slide backwards when unhooked. Sites did have a fire pit and picnic table. The access roads are asphalt and very narrow. I was able to navigate the roads but I was unable to avoid dragging my trailer wheels over the grass on numerous turns. There was a charge for WI-FI. This is not a campground I would return to. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This campground offers really good views of the White Mountains. The grassy sites are terraced into a large hill which overlooks a valley and then a range of mountains. It was beautiful. That being said, this is a campground which has become a little worn around the edges. Everything is clean and nicely landscaped, but the picnic tables are wobbly, the signs are rusty, and the buildings all need a coat of paint. It was still a great place to stay with many good pull-through sites and some great sites for tenting in the woods. The owners were friendly and helpful. The campground was very quiet and did not get highway noise. We would go back again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We were not impressed with this campground. The sites are packed together, and you are practically sitting on your neighbor's lap. There was very little shade for the whole area I was in. Campers were up until 1-2am partying. The fireworks were very nice. The shower was FREE, so that was a positive thing. The items at the store were VERY expensive; make sure you go prepared! I will admit the view of the white mountains is spectacular, but not enough so I would go here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The sites are a little close together but this is a great location to stay if you are going to Santa's Village or Six Gun City or one of the new water parks in New Hampshire. It has a mini-golf course and a water slide next door. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very nice family campground. Clean and well maintained restrooms and showers. Mostly full hookups. Nice mountainside sites with lovely views. Pull throughs were not conducive to leaving tow vehicle attached but otherwise were level and included picnic table. We would return to this campground next time we are in this area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
