The toilets and showers were quite old. We only saw two of each. The campground is primarily a residential summer camp. There was a fishing pond. When one drives in the gate the place presents a really well kept look, so the poor quality of the showers and toilets was surprising. There is quite a long winding road to get to this place, but we saw 40's doing it. We camped at Riverdale Farm Campsites in a Motorhome.

I have mixed feelings about this place. It's pretty much the only game in town and was okay-not great, not horrible-just okay. It has all the fun things..swimming pond, playground, shuffleboard, etc., but it has a little bit of a crowded "trailer park" look in parts of it. Some of the sites are shaded, woodsy, and charming, while there is a section that's out in the open that just seems like campers are everywhere. Our 50 amp, FHU, back-in site was partially shaded and on the end, so we had a nice yard on one side. The site on the other side was fairly close as were most of the sites. We were easily leveled, but had to re-level after a few days. The WiFi was really good. Cable had limited channels, but still plenty to have decent choices. Had good Verizon service. The place was clean. Our GPS wouldn't take Clinton CT. They have blue directional camper signs once off I-95. Follow those signs. They need one of two more indicating you're on the right track. At one point, we thought we were lost. If ever in the area, we would stay again. We camped at Riverdale Farm Campsites in a Motorhome.

Access from I-80 is dicey at best. Small narrow road that is about 1 ½ mile long access from the interstate. Access to campground is by card reader only but they have a speaker system that you can speak to the office with when first time entry.

This campground advertises as being big rig friendly but there only a very few sites that a big rig will fit in. Some campsites are pitifully covered with gravel that has just been poured on it and left there with little attempt being made to smooth and level it out.

The first one we tried to park in, that was assigned to us by the office, was so unlevel our rear wheels would have been off of the ground even with extra pads under the tires. We could not get level.

We looked around and found one we thought we could fit in which was a back in grassy site. Even then it was difficult to back in because of the narrow street but we were able to do it because there wasn't anyone across from us at the time.

Utility services easily accessible from the rig with the water being very hard. Verizon wireless accessible with a strong signal. Satellite access was iffy in this campground due to large trees. Large amount of permanent parked sites with most pleasantly set up and landscaped. Residents very friendly to transient's.

Downtown Guilford, CT was a nice day trip with shops and restaurants. Waterfront area was nice with a view of Faulkner's Island. There is a state park close by with trails that we did not visit.

Restrooms clean and functional. Small laundry on site that we did not use. We camped at Riverdale Farm Campsites in a Motorhome.

There isn't much to choose from as far as campgrounds go in Connecticut. This park is close to the ocean but you would have to drive there. There are a lot of seasonal campers here but their sites are well kept. Garbage goes in one big dumpster at the front of the camp. You have to toss it in. When we got here it was mounded up 8 ft high. There is a pool. They allow people who are not camping here to pay to get in the park to use the pond. The sight we were in was supposed to be satellite friendly wide open with nothing around us. That was true our sight had no trees but it is heavily wooded in front of our site & in back. We could not get satellite. They do have cable & they do have WiFi. However we had trouble getting cell service in our RV. Sometimes we had to try a few times & it would finally come up or we had to move to the front of our unit. This was certainly not something we expected in CT. The laundry had four dryers, two that were out of order & four washers. The water pressure was poor. We filled our tank & ran off our pump. We camped at Riverdale Farm Campsites in a Motorhome.

Our site was very sloped from front to back. Rear wheels once leveled were 3 inches off ground. However, we enjoyed our visit here. Spacious sites with good WiFi through TengoInternet. Cable TV was excellent. Really nice fire pits at each site. Patios could be larger. Views were excellent. Very pretty driveway entrance to park. We would camp here again if ever in the area.

Big rig friendly. Most of the sites were level even though there were hills in the campground. Good place to ride bicycle. No dog park but two large fields to walk dog with doggie bags. There were many full-timers and lots of children but this was fine with us. Cable and Wi-Fi were good. Showers were old but good with hot water. Washers and dryers worked fine but a little expensive. There were scheduled activities during the day and weekend. We camped at Riverdale Farm Campsites in a Travel Trailer.

Walmart and grocery store in Clinton. Clinton had free summer concerts on Thursday night. Beaches were nice but charged for parking. Essex and Old Saybrook worth a visit. Outlet malls were within 10 miles.

This is a nice campground with tons of activities for the kids, which appeared in abundance on the weekends. Our site was comfortable and ample for three slides. WiFi overall was fast and reliable. Apparently, the State tests the swimming pond water weekly, and closed the pond to swimming for one day due to "bacteria." We were later informed that this was due to heavy rain runoff. We camped nine days to entertain and overnight grandkids from the Hartford area. Overall, Riverdale was a good experience. We camped at Riverdale Farm Campsites in a Fifth Wheel.

Shopping in Madison or Clinton, about 20 minutes in either direction. The campground is 20 minutes or so from Hamonasset State Park on Long Island Sound, thus there are other swimming/beach options.

Not very good value here. We had booked ahead of time for 2 nights but only stayed one. Lots of full timers here. Not a good place for transients. We camped at Riverdale Farm Campsites in a Fifth Wheel.

Staff very friendly. Very clean restrooms. $0.25 / 8 minutes for showers. Grounds were well maintained. Was very nice having cable and Wi-Fi. Overall, very pleased with the stay and the site. Stayed on site 143. Sites are on the small side; however, each has a stone slab with a picnic table. Wash is $2.75 and dry is $0.25 for 8 minutes. Came in a 30' motorhome towing a vehicle - no issues with the roads coming in to the campground. Hammonasset Beach State Park approximately 10 minutes away - very nice beach; can park nearby and ride bicycle in without any charge, otherwise, $15 entry fee for non-residents. Would definitely return. We camped at Riverdale Farm Campsites in a Motorhome.

As previously mentioned, the road to this park is windy, narrow and needs a lot of tree-trimming - not a fun drive in a large coach. Of course, that is not the campground's fault, but folks should be aware of it. Large potholes greeted us at the entrance. Sites were grass, decently spaced and not very level. Our site had a concrete patio, table and fire pit which we were able to enjoy often. The 50-amp power and water were strong and the Verizon signal to our amplified MiFi and phones was good. Bathrooms and showers were old and not very clean. The laundry room was fairly nice and had a folding table. The office staff was friendly, and firewood was available there. Considering the number of seasonal/permanent residents, this park was fairly quiet. Stores and other services were within a 15-minute drive. Note: All transactions are cash or check only at this campground. We would stay at this campground again if in the area. We camped at Riverdale Farm Campsites in a Motorhome.

Muddy and uneven sites; definitely not a Big Rig friendly campground. There are a lot of seasonals, but these sites are neat and clean. This camp is not worth $45. Fortunately, we were only here for one night. We will not stay here again. We camped at Riverdale Farm Campsites in a Motorhome.

Road to park is narrow and windy. Staff was nice. Roads in park are paved with grass sites, wide with room for slides. Power, water, and cell (AT&T) were good. Ocean and restaurants close. Quite during the week with only a few seasonal and other campers. Weekend was noisy. Loud music into the night, golf carts and kids running around. Will look elsewhere next time we are in the area.

We have never stayed in this park before, and it was recommended by a friend. I must say it is one of the nicer parks I have ever been to. My wife and I have been traveling around the country for almost 13 years, and we would definitely stay again! The young man and young lady working in the office were perhaps the nicest we have come across on our journeys; they took pride in their work. They put us on a wonderful site right on the river's bend and we turned our 2 night stopover into a 2 week stay because we loved it so much. We have already made reservations for next fall, and I would highly recommend the park, just be sure to call ahead as they say they book quickly during the summer months and holidays We camped at Riverdale Farm Campsites in a Motorhome.

Fine campground when we parked here frequently on the hill years ago with our 30' tagalong. Totally different story now: not at all "friendly" down on the flat for a 40' fiver. Narrow roads, tight turns, tree obstructions, small tight sites. The person who checked us in was the worst in our 8 years (many full time) of RV travel. Aloof, surly, and insulting: he would be reason enough for us to never come back. Bathroom gave "rustic" a whole new meaning; thank God I only had to use it on arrival!
