Attention Dog Owners! This is not a dog friendly campground. Dogs are not allowed to be walked outside except at the dog park. Dogs cannot be walked to the dog park from your site. They must be driven in your vehicle. Big rig back-in sites #40-50 are along a noisy highway with late night casino traffic. Optional large pull-thru sites (with 50 amp) #224-229 do not have black water sewer (grey only). These sites require navigating to the rear of the park along narrow, bumpy, dusty roads under low hanging tree branches. In this area satellite reception is non-existent. The park offers no cable service to sites. We camped at Odetah Camping Resort in a Motorhome.Undo

We stayed here many years ago in a cabin when our children were smaller and had a good time. We are now seasonal campers at a nearby campground and attempted to stop in and visit with relatives that were camping there. We stopped in Saturday night around 7PM intending to stay for about an hour, but never made it past the gate. They wanted $50 for us to come in as visitors. That's $15 per adult and $10 per child for 1 hour of using zero of their facilities. My husband almost paid by pulling out his debit card when he was then told CASH only... We had $30 on us which would have been the fee with $5 each returned upon our leaving but they still insisted we would have to go to the ATM for the full $50. We left never having stopped in to visit. That has to be the most insane visitors fee I have even encountered when entering a campground. If we were staying for the day that would be one thing, but for one hour in the evening no and no we will never go back. We camped at Odetah Camping Resort in a Campground Cabin.Undo

We stayed for two nights midweek in the summer. We picked a site(167) far away from the highway so we had peace & quiet. Site was clean, trash is picked up daily. Lake with a trampoline in it is nice. Lots of stuff to keep families busy. Free wi-fi is a plus but it is very unreliable so don't plan on using it much. Verizon signal is poor, AT&T decent. I wouldn't say it's very resort-like but more like a nice campground. We would return although it's not one of the best values we've seen. We camped at Odetah Camping Resort in a Motorhome.Undo

Place was very nice: I was pleasantly surprised. Staff was very friendly and got an escort to the site. All young staff was very courteous and went out of their way to say hi. Love the beach front area and cafe. Site was clean and seasonal campers were friendly. I was in full hookup site "D" which was fine. A lot of hills and bike riding for kids was minimal. I would definitely go back! We camped at Odetah Camping Resort in a Travel Trailer.Undo

We stayed here as a seasonal during the summer of 2012. I would gladly give this place a 10 + review. Their staff are extremely helpful and very courteous. The bathrooms and shower areas were very clean and attended to on a regular basis. The grass areas were cut and trimmed weekly. We stayed in site 241 (which is on a dead end, up a good sized hill). They offer lots of activities for both the adults and kids. The resort has a heated outdoor pool and hot-tub. Our only gripe with this place is the lack of supervision in the pool area; too often children would play in the hot-tub even though the posted signs stated under 16 not allowed. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Odetah Camping Resort in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

Beautiful "camping resort." Staff is super helpful. We felt the first site to which we were assigned was too short. The young men who escorted us to that site, called, then went to the office to make a change to a longer site. Unfortunately, getting to most of their sites is not easy for a big rig. Roads are curvy, hilly, and tight. Getting to the park with GPS was complicated. This is the kind of park which caters to family campers who stay several weeks, utilizing all the activities, even a cafe which delivers to the site. Garbage and recycle are picked up at the site. We stayed here to visit Mystic Seaport and Stonington, which is about 25 minutes away. I think I would find a closer, less expensive park if I should return.

First impressions of this campground are very good: entrance, store, check-in process, and courteousness of staff are worthy of being called a resort. Unfortunately the actual camping sites fall short. We were offered a site with one side of privacy which was nice (we came in on a Sunday night for a stopover only). The sites are very narrow and the road/turns are a little tricky to navigate with a 40' RV. The 30 amp power was barely adequate, and the park was not full. We did not use any of the facilities. If the actual sites matched the first impression, this would truly be an amazing campground. Note: there was some road noise where we stayed, but it was minimal, and the staff was VERY forthcoming about it. We camped at Odetah Camping Resort in a Motorhome.Undo

This place is great! Huge campground with nice staff. Lake was good and has a snack bar right on the beach. The only reason for a 9 is we were in site 37 and as prior posters have said, the highway noise was LOUD, especially at night. Liked it so much though we would return even if we had to take the same site. We camped at Odetah Camping Resort in a Travel Trailer.Undo

It is like climbing a mountain to get to your site, and once there you discover that your camping neighbors are within a very few feet of your own site. Way too crowded overall and tons of kids, which poses a noise issue at night and if you decide to try and take an afternoon nap. On the plus side, the restrooms are decent and clean and overall the park is clean as well. A lot of seasonal trailers and 5th wheelers populate this campground with fewer than 40% available for short-term stays. Overall I think this place is over-priced, no cable TV despite the claims of full-service hookups. We camped at Odetah Camping Resort in a Motorhome.Undo

Beautiful campground with a heated pool and jacuzzi overlooking the lake, spotless general store fully stocked. Really cute mini golf with waterfalls, big beach, nice lake with no need of a fishing permit. The Wi-Fi is exceptional and the staff was excellent. Bath houses were decent and the hot water will cook you alive (just the way I like it). We camped in site "G" which is HUGE. Doesn't look like a big site on the map but WOW. Other sites are truly on top of each other with campers almost touching (like 20 and 19 are tight). Sites are dirt / grass / some pea-stone and we did need to level the camper with boards. The downside: The other campers were loud - especially if you are near the cabins. RVs and trailers are mixed in with tents, which seems to make the whole area louder. On a cloudy night the sound bounces everywhere. It is also very very dark so bring a flashlight. Overall, we will be back. We camped at Odetah Camping Resort in a Travel Trailer.Undo

I am from the area and have camped here several times over my 8 years camping. This "Resort" campground is far from it. The roads are not paved. The full hook up sites have the hook ups all the way to the rear of the site. I used 30' of sewer hose to hook up and the sewer hook up was 9" out of the ground. I had to level one side of my camper 5 inches. There is no cable. It is not family oriented as you pay extra for kids ($8 per kid per night). Mini golf is nice but not worth $9 per person on the Halloween weekend. They use to give you Sunday Night free if you paid for Friday and Saturday which they no longer do. Managers are greedy as well. This campground is owned by a local businessman which owns a rock/gravel trucking business. To upgrade this facility to warrant the price "must be done". I also camp with a group of 8-12 families and we also have written this place off. I hope they are happy chasing the locals out. We camped at Odetah Camping Resort in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

Our favorite campground in Connecticut. Well staffed, everyone professional and friendly. Campground moderately to heavily wooded and hilly. Power, water pressure, electricity and Wi-Fi all fine. I wasn't happy with this year's rate increase but I won't let that affect my review rating. Campground is loaded with amenities, just too much to mention. I really wish this campground would reconsider changing it's pet policy and allow pet walking through the campground, as most resort campgrounds in the northeast do. Though I appreciate the effort with the new dog park, park itself needs to be finished or cleaned out of tree stumps and rocks so pets can exercise freely. Regardless of the pet issues, I would certainly return or recommend this campground to anyone. We camped at Odetah Camping Resort in a Travel Trailer.Undo

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.

A very good campground: but expensive. Listed rates are for 2 people, meaning a family of 4 actually has to pay for the two "extra" people, an unusual way to do it that can add up quickly. Anyway, it's a clean and well laid out campground. We were escorted to our site, which worked out well because our escort brought us around the long way so it was very easy to back our trailer in. We had full hookups, but the sewer pipe was high (6"+), so unless you have a riser/support for your hose it is a little difficult to use. The campground is hilly. The lake had a floating trampoline and a floating "iceberg", which is a climbing wall! Kids loved it. Nice "restaurant" down by the lake was more like a diner. I thought the food prices were reasonable and the quality was good, they also can deliver food to your site. We couldn't figure out if the "tram" (golf cart that holds around 10 people) had a schedule or what it's route was: we never did end up using it. The bathrooms were roomy, clean, and the showers were free. The minigolf course is great! It is landscaped beautifully, and the 18 holes are challenging. This is certainly one of the best 18-hole minigolf courses at a campground that I've seen: but I thought the $5 per person to play (so a family of 4 is $20) was a little steep considering the nightly camping rate. We thought the pool was very nice, and it is lighted so swimming is allowed at night. The jacuzzi was sometimes overrun by kids. Campground workers were all very nice, cheerful, and helpful. The "Scoop Shack" (ice cream counter) gave out large portions, so that was worth it! Our site was on the side near the road, so there was car noise but I didn't think it was bad. This is a very good (if a bit pricey) family campground. We camped at Odetah Camping Resort in a Travel Trailer.Undo

Okay so this used to be a lovely campground, until this year when they declared themselves a Resort and raised their rates by over $10 a night. Sites do not have cable TV. At $67 a night, they should. The new rate increase was supposed to buy the camper a new "tram" that shuttled people around the campground (it is a large campground and the lake is far from where most of the transient campers are situated). We saw the "tram" (we think there is only one) plugged into shore power more than we saw it move during this weekend. There are no signs for "tram stops", so even when it was running, we couldn't figure out where it would stop to pick people up. There is only one pool, and it is in need of some touchups and repairs. Rules and regulations are not enforced at this campground! Children were in the hot tub; were diving on top of one another in the pool; and folks were shuttling themselves to/from the lake in the back and sides of their pickup truck, which is forbidden. Express Check-In is not express: we had to wait in line while all the other campers cleared out ahead of us, even though we had paid in full, way in advance. And something was up with our water pressure. It was not great. I don't know if that was us or them. Sites are relatively level, although again, for resort prices: they should be graded flat and covered with stone, so you pull in, drop the jacks, and that's it. I didn't try the Wi-Fi, but my experience with it during a previous year was that it was flaky at best. (But perhaps they did improve on that). One positive improvement that probably 95% of the people who camp here will not use: is the new dog park up at the top of the hill behind the campground. It was new, and therefore clean and not destroyed yet by lack of maintenance or disrespectful pet owners who don't/won't clean up after their dog. There is a prominent display of free waste baggies and two trash cans! Dogs are not permitted to walk around the campground here. They must stay on your site or be driven to the dog park. We have camped here before with our dogs and enjoyed it. There is a lot to do here and it has a nice atmosphere. Unfortunately, now it is not worth the expense.
