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!

Tight, unlevel site. Staff not at all helpful, in fact rude. WiFi worked in the field. Mostly seasonals. Stayed here before, but will not again. We camped at Riverdale Farm Campsites in a Fifth Wheel.

Shore power is good, water pressure is low: about 35psi. Verizon air card is good about 87 dbm. No satellite because of thick trees on the south side. Cable TV is very good. Some Digital channels are viewable, good analog channels. Sites are gravel in grass. Good room between sites. This is a large campground and a very large portion is fulltime tenants. All fulltime tenants seem to have well groomed sites. Road into campground is narrow asphalt two lane. Road in campground is gravel and asphalt and mostly one lane. Though narrow roads, there are no obstacles in the way. If you get the right spot this is not a bad campground. No road noise and is quiet. The rating would be better if the roads were wider, the water pressure was higher and satellite was accessible. We would stay here again. We camped at Riverdale Farm Campsites in a Fifth Wheel.

My family and I stayed here for Labor Day Weekend. It was our first time staying at this place, and we were impressed. There were so many kids for our children to play with, and there were a lot of activities as well as a lot of courts and the swimming pond, but what impressed me the most was the staff. The girl in the office was very polite and helpful, and my wife said she rarely sees restrooms and grounds so clean and manicured. She also enjoyed how close they are to the shopping outlets and ocean. The price was very reasonable as well, most other campgrounds we have been to charge a lot more for holidays. The only regret I have is that we made reservations last minute, and they did not have many sites left to choose from, next summer we will call earlier. We camped at Riverdale Farm Campsites in a Travel Trailer.

Camped here one night, while passing through. Very convenient to I-95. Friendly, helpful staff. We will certainly stay here again whenever we are in this area. Lot was level. Utilities were in good working order. We camped at Riverdale Farm Campsites in a Fifth Wheel.

This review reflects mainly on the pull through site we were assigned. We stop here for an overnight stay. The pull-though site (124) was very slanted uphill, had to use Lego blocks to get close to level. Forget about using the RV jacks to stabilize. The sewer connection is forward, meaning you are dumping up hill. The site is narrow with a cement patio, the problem is that the site post on the driver side prohibits the slide from extending. The campground was full and pull-though 86 was level, but was not long enough for us to fit on (we are 38 feet). The pull-though sites seem to be an after thought. With careful selection of a back in site for a longer stay (sites were close together) we would have rated this campground higher. We camped at Riverdale Farm Campsites in a Motorhome.

A really nice park in a lovely country setting. No pool, but a large clean man-made "pond" for swimming. Easy access to our pull-through site, and excellent cable TV and Wi-Fi as well as satellite access. We picked it because it was the closest RV park in Connecticut to NYC with nice accommodations, and we were not disappointed. We will definitely stay here again when in the area.

Mother's Day for the 2nd year in a row. Had a real good time. Very clean and kid friendly. Only complaints are with other campers pets...not the campgrounds fault. If your dogs bark every time it sees other dogs, LEAVE IT HOME!. All in all, a good experience!. Riverdale Farms is a very nice campground. We camped at Riverdale Farm Campsites in a Tent Trailer.

We stayed overnight on our way south down I-95. Very convenient to the interstate. The state park along the Long Island Sound is only 3 miles away for great access to the beach and a good sunset. The staff was friendly and had no problems with our site. The place was still a little crowded during October but it was a Saturday night. We camped at Riverdale Farm Campsites in a Motorhome.
