I would definitely agree with the other reviews about the bathrooms. They are disgusting We arrived on a Thursday afternoon and they were not clean at all nor were they touched all weekend. The game room was just as dirty. The campground itself is somewhat pleasant but it gets very crowded on the weekends and the transient sites are very close together. They did accommodate us with an empty seasonal site that was a decent size but far away from all amenities. The pool was nice but way overcrowded and the kids did enjoy the fishing pond. Another big negative was on Sunday morning when the water stopped working. I was told this happens on busy weekends. Apparently the well water tank runs low. This made it very difficult to close down the camper and get everyone ready to leave. The campground claims they are the best deal in Ct. but I would rather pay a few dollars more for clean bathrooms and a well system that can keep up. We won't be returning. We camped at Brialee Family Camping in a Travel Trailer.

Great family place with lots to do for kids. Rural and woodsy, we enjoyed our stay. With full services, rate was excellent. Lake with fishing and swimming. We had a good week there. We camped at Brialee Family Camping in a Motorhome.

Brialee was recommended to me. After I missed the rear entrance I ended up using the front. Yes it was hilly but it was manageable. We stayed in the "new" section with full hookup. The site was small and surface covered with rocks...not the best surface. Kept getting power surges that made my microwave "beep" all night with each surge. As my wife said..."bathrooms are the dirtiest we have ever been to". OK..on the plus sides - The price is good and love that it includes all kids. There were plenty of activities for the kids. The beach was a big plus for wife and kids. I think overall it is a good campground that I might visit again. We camped at Brialee Family Camping in a Travel Trailer.

This campground when we made reservation said it had 50amp. They do not have 50amp service! The road in was awful. At 4:00 PM on a Sunday NO one was in the office. They left a note with our site number. They "forgot" to highlight the road to it. Will NEVER stay here again. Trash was NEVER picked up and sat for days.

Brialee didn't impress right away but grew on us. There were a lot of activities for the kids and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The Fenway Park replica wiffleball park and radio control car track were a hit. We camped at Brialee Family Camping in a Motorhome.

Delightful wooded campground built around trickling streams feeding into large ponds for fishing and swimming. They even have a pet beach. Capable and friendly office staff. Wi-Fi was very good. Access road off 89 was a wicked switchback turn. Use the recommended rear entrance. Site was level packed pea gravel. We camped at Brialee Family Camping in a Motorhome.

Check in was easy and we found our site with no problem. Backing in was tricky but they helped us out. All services on the site worked. Their are plenty of things to do here and we did not really venture out as we had stayed in the area before. Swimming pool, fishing pond,small beach, mini golf, batting cage, etc. Plenty of planned activities for everyone including Bingo. We had friends visit us one night with no problem, and they even liked it. We plan on returning. We camped at Brialee Family Camping in a Fifth Wheel.

We have camped at this campground about a dozen times over the past 5 years with our small children. There are lots of activities, hiking trails, and fishing spots. You can swim at your choice of a pool (nicely maintained) or beach-like lake/pond. Friendly staff and seasonal campers. We always enjoy our stay here. Facilities were fine, although not immaculate. We camped at Brialee Family Camping in a Travel Trailer.

This a great park with various activities. The mid-week prices can't be beat. Staff is knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. We stayed here in the beginning of June and were impressed with this vast yet peaceful campground. We stayed here for another 2 days on our return trip at the end of July, and although it was filled to near capacity, the mood and atmosphere was the same. Unfortunately, the washrooms during this visit were undesirable due to human nature of adolescent guests. We camped at Brialee Family Camping in a Fifth Wheel.

This is my second review of Brialee and we continue to love this place. After seeing many other campgrounds in the CT and RI area, I appreciate the work and money the owners put back into this place. We camped with family over the 4th of July weekend. It was packed and we had no problems with electric (granted, we didn't need to run the A/C!). The one really nice thing about Brialee is they don't nickel and dime you. Our family of 4 adults with one trailer and one tent were accommodated on one nicely spacious site with no extra charges. Try getting THAT at other campgrounds that charge for the kids in the family, not to mention extra adults/cars! With a full campground, it was actually very quiet after around 11pm. No loud parties. Security was right on the spot when one group decided to let off some loud fireworks near the sites (strictly prohibited). One nice thing - Brialee had their own very respectable fireworks display and set off all the kids firecrackers too. The bathhouse near us was very clean (we had site 218), but the one near the pool was much dirtier due to the really high usage. They need to keep on this better. Lots of activities that were well run and well-attended. Clean (chilly!) pool and nice clean pond for swimming. Very pet friendly with a separate doggie beach. The dogs I came into contact with (and the owners!) were well behaved. Overall, we'll be back again for sure! We camped at Brialee Family Camping in a Travel Trailer.

We went here last year during the month of April and had a wonderful time. We were less than impressed this year. First off: they lost my prepaid reservation. I had to pay again for the weekend and am in the process of trying to be refunded for the first reservation. This is NOT an easy task. Tried to buy wood from the camp store at 5:20pm only to find the store closed for the night. Playgrounds are in desperate need of updating and repair. The main playground has a tire swing that is a big hit BUT, the tire is torn, the chains holding it are rubber coated and all cracked, and the spinning joint is so rusted that it is fixed in place now. The swingset at the beach was a pile of debris. Bathrooms were broom swept but did have quite a strong odor of urine. On the plus side, there were many activities over the weekend. Kids did have a fun time. We camped at Brialee Family Camping in a Travel Trailer.

We had an enjoyable time at this campground, but it is not an RV Resort. It is a campground. Not for Big Rigs. It is very wooded. We are 32 feet long and we really had to be careful between overhanging tree limbs and huge rocks / boulders. It is a perfect place for families with children. We do not travel with kids. Fires are going all day every day. Beautiful place to walk around in the Fall though, scenery was very nice. The Wi-Fi was spotty but we could get access, but not stay connected for very long. Nice place for pets. We stayed here as it is close to family and the only park around. Unfortunately, they had no spots with sewers which did not make us happy. We might stay here again. We camped at Brialee Family Camping in a Motorhome.

Worst Customer Service ever including horrible attitude by the owner! First of all, they double booked several sites, so there was all kinds of juggling to find out who had what site and even had to move other people that were set up because the office obviously did not get it right. The bathrooms were DIRTY! There was only one working toilet in the bathroom, out of four. Will never go there again!! Horrible experience!! We camped at Brialee Family Camping in a Tent.

This was our first trip here, the rate was a special for April. Pros: Lots of activities for kids and adults, either free or reasonably priced. Well staffed. Well kept grounds. Nice snack bar. Cons: Mostly seasonals, who have the nice wooded and waterfront sites. Our site (#267) was in a line of sites situated on a continuous bed of gravel, no trees, no shrubs, weedy, and there was a dangerous (to small children) drop off directly behind these sites. The sewer hook up was towards the front of the site, so we had to purchase an extra 10' hose. Fire ring was practically located in the road. Playground equipment nearby was rickety. We camped at Brialee Family Camping in a Travel Trailer.
