We camped here in a fairly large group (7 families) for the Fourth of July, and the campground was completely full! The seasonal folks were extremely friendly! Some in our group had riverside sites and they did a great job keeping our group as close together as possible. Wish there was a bit more grass in the shady sites and that the electrical was more stable. We consistently had brown-outs and lost power several times. All in all, the group decided we would stay here again! - JBaird

We camped here at the end of their season. There were only a few other people camping while we were here but all the other sites were filled with empty seasonal campers which was a little strange to us. It was a nice place and the owners were nice. The kids enjoyed the playground. The stream was nice to see from our site. Could be a little crowded when the campground is full of people. The sites are gravel. The bathrooms desperately need to be updated. - RFamilyCamping

This is a small, good, quiet campground. A lot of sites are directly on the Natchaug River. Our site was not on the river, but right next to the main road. Traffic wasn't bad, but I don't know if it is busier in the summer months -- we were only about 20 feet from the road. At a minimum, request a site that is NOT next to the main road. Bathrooms are older, but were clean. Sites are large with plenty of room. Good access to the river for everyone. Owners were VERY nice. Store is very limited, but has basics. This is a good campground for a quiet weekend. - Tom

One of the nicest parks we have stayed in. Beautiful, clean, family friendly. The only drawback is that most sites have grey water connections only and do not have sewer connections. They do have multiple dump locations and pump out service is available. The park activities include weekend entertainment and bingo. The owners go out of their way to assist customers. We would consider this as a destination park. - essentiallady

Keep in mind the lack of sewer hook ups here. No hook up at all if you opt for the water front sites on the little creek. The open sites without shade in the middle of the park have grey water dump pits using a water hose (not full sewer hose) to hook up. Not having the hookup at our roomy site on the creek, required me to use their laundry facilities which were expensive at 2.50 a load. I refused to feed the quarter machine in the bath house "pay to shower" facility, so our grey water tank filled up quickly. Dump station was convenient however. The owner is very welcoming and friendly, and we also loved the many hummingbirds in the area. - nautifish

Staff is very friendly. Stayed in an open grassy site in a fifth wheel. Shaded sites are available as are some beside the river. Several covered ramadas. The site was compacted, grass, and fairly level. The laundry room was adequate, but at $2.50 each for washer and dryer, cost was high. Bath house was clean, but there is a fee to run the shower. WiFi reception was sporadic and seemed to be a carrier issue and due to severe storms. Nice play fields and a small playground. - Scottsdale RVers

We came opening weekend to take advantage of the trout fishing on the Natchaug river and of course to enjoy camping. One of the reasons why we continue to choose this campground is because of the friendly environment and the enforcement of campground policies. Interior roads had some potholes but nothing to over the top. Our sit hookups were in good working order. Campground is in a flood plain because of the Natchaug river so do expect some sand at most of the sites. We did not try the WiFi but we had a good signal on our Verizon cell phone. Geography at campground is level with open and shaded areas. Most sites, especially the non river sites, have enough space where backing in should not be difficult. Campground is clean and decently maintained. Would certainly return again or recommend this place to anyone. - mdcamping

This is our yearly return visit to Nickerson Park. They were not able to accommodate us with the site we would have liked but they got us a over sized full hookup site which worked out great. Staff professional and friendly. Geography at campground is level with open and shaded areas. Most sites, especially the non river sites, have enough space where backing in and should not be difficult. One change for this year is the old restroom building in the center of the campground has been replace with a new building. Campground is clean and decently maintained. Owner offers worship service at the rec hall every Sunday. Would certainly return again. - mdcamping

Park is secluded with lots of trees. Very peaceful and quiet. Many river sites. The majority of sites are occupied by seasonals but that is generally the case in this part of the country. Roads are dirt/rock as are the sites. With rain it does become muddy and the roads have potholes. Sites are not very level. Sites are large enough and have ample spacing so you do not feel cramped. Wi-Fi is free but is slow most of the time. We really enjoyed the park but they do need to put gravel down on the sites to level them out and fill the potholes on the road. Staff/owner very friendly and helpful. - mcharland
Jul 2015 - $35.00
Large park with MANY amenities (boat rentals, pet beach, mini golf, endless kid's activities, food bar) and a helpful, friendly staff. Cons: sites are very close and cluttered. There are no tent-specific sites, so you may end up tenting in between large RVs like we did. On the plus side, though, every site has water and electric. Unfortunately, while we were there the bathroom near us had only 2 toilets working (out of 5), and the store ran out of ice. Campers were respectful of the speed limit, but the noise curfew was definitely not enforced. - LMurphy

We stayed here with a group of 14 families.
The pavilion and the nearby fire pit was perfect for our group events..
Major upgrades are in progress for the rally area.
We would definitely camp here again! - Ed Smith

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. - Chuck Ct.

This park does NOT have a sewer hook up, but they do have a grey water drain and a honey wagon. They guy that runs the place was so nice. They had some great events while here. The RV sites are nestled in the woods and very nice! One of our favorites and we will be back! - FrugalNavyWife

This rustic, hilly campground is nestled in the woods along Chamberlain pond. The access roads and site pads/patios are gravel. The first 10 sites have water, 30a electric and a gray water only dump port. There is a dump station. These same sites will accommodate bigger rigs more easily as the road is a little wider. The rest of the sites are W/E only and scattered among the seasonals. Most sites are reasonably level but remember this campground is built into the hills so you will need to compensate. The length and width of every site varies somewhat but you had a feeling of privacy in the trees. We had to jockey our 39' rig into a position so the slides avoided trees. Even still, our site's campfire pit ended up under a slide so we didn't have any fires. Tree trimming is needed as the rig scraped against branches when backing into place. Water pressure was 40 - 45psi. 30amp power was stable. In spite of 80 degree temps, we never ran the A/C because the dense tree shade kept the rig much cooler. Cable TV was good and available for $5 a night. There's no wi-fi but our hotspot worked fine. The grounds were clean and maintained. The office/rec room building is fairly new and sports a store, library, game room. Behind it is a large blacktopped pad for listening to music, playing basketball, etc. The 50 acre pond has a variety of fish, no license needed and it's catch and release. We met a number of the seasonals and found them welcoming and engaging. The staff was friendly and very helpful with information about the area. The nightly rate for the Labor Day holiday is bumped to $60. Considering no 50a service, no site dump, no wi-fi, extra $ for cable, site accommodation issues for big rigs, their regular $40 rate is more appropriate for a holiday weekend and still high compared to other campgrounds where a similar daily rate includes all the amenities. We liked the rustic qualities of this campground but would look for other places next time. - Born2Roam

Nice campground. Clean, friendly staff, quiet. We stayed here for 4 nights and enjoyed it very much. We will definitely stay here again the next time through the area. - sstgermain

Way off the Interstate transiting hilly, curvy and narrow roads. We stayed hooked up in a back in spot in upper field. Nice country setting. Even though quite a ways from interstate we will stay again if in the area. Moose motif is fun for the kids. - KilaH

Narrow, hilly, curvy road to park. Back-in grassy site was too slanted to allow us to level without taking wheels off the ground. Utility connections were convenient, water pressure was fair, Verizon cell service was good. - jbrucemagon

We stopped here on our trip north to Maine. It was a wonderful place to stay for an evening after a day of traveling. We were in a grassy field where we were able to pull in level and stay hooked up for the night. The campground had a pool but we were unable to use it due to thunder in the area. They had a miniature golf course on grounds that the kids enjoyed playing. In the area where you check in there was a piano that the kids also enjoyed playing, toys for little kids, books to read, games to play and downstairs was a gameroom with a pool table and various arcade games. The bathrooms were clean. We will stop here again when we travel this way. - alnal90

Stayed here for 2 months, July, August. Campground is deep wooded but sites are clean and accessible. Owners are on site and ready to help with anything. plenty of trails to walk, ponds & lakes to fish and enjoy. Lots of permanent residents but all are friendly. - OutbackTrekers

We stayed here for one night while traveling I-95. The staff were very helpful and friendly and had no problems accommodating us without a reservation. The park caters mostly to seasonal campers, who occupy about 3/4 of the sites. Most of the sites were well treed, and the park was very quiet and dark, making for a great sleep. The downside of the wooded sites were some very tricky corners, and backing in my 34' RV was a challenge. Once in, the site was big enough to stay hooked up for the night. Nice. Why a 7? Some, but not all, of the units in the seasonal sites are in disrepair, which always detracts for us. No sewer is available, and there is a fee to use the dump unless you stay two nights. Water is available, but only through a garden hose sized connection. The WiFi isn't provided by the park, it is provided by a few kind seasonal campers who open their network to others. It worked well, but seemed a bit weird, as this seems to be the camp's chosen method to provide WiFi. Finally, our site was busy with mosquitoes and deer flies, but that's nature. - bigdipper

We recently spent 9 nights here while visiting family in the area. There are a number of things that make this place a great campground. First, they honor Passport America any day of the week, which is awesome, because it made our stay incredibly affordable. Second, the folks that work there are really nice. They were friendly, helpful, and obviously interested in making sure their guests were taken care of. Third, the sites were well spaced, heavily treed (which we like) and there was a nice lake on the property.
There are a lot of seasonals throughout the campground, but most sites were well kept. The majority of transient folks seem to only stop for a night or two on their way elsewhere. We basically had our whole area to ourselves for a couple days.
The only minor dings are that there is no sewer service available at the sites. They do have a dump station, but it won't easily fit big rigs like ours. For that they have a weekly honey wagon service. The guy was nice, but there were some equipment problems during the dump, and lets just say, it was kinda gross. The other ding for us is the showers. While they were clean, there was no private area to change outside the shower room. It was just one small shower area. I'm not crazy about changing in front of people or leaving my bag out there or whatever else. It would be great if they improved their shower facilities a bit.
Anyway, these are minor dings. Overall, we were very happy with our experience there and will definitely be back in the future. If you're just looking for a quick place to stop for a night or two on your way through New England, and if you have PA, it is really pretty perfect. - LGRV

Rustic and friendly. Very helpful management. Close to I-84. Lots are gravel and fairly tight to enter/exit. Lovely lake. Open early and late in season for snowbirds. Will stay again. - pwaygood

Owner met us next to the office, asked what type of spot and pointed to one, "Will that be OK? Get set up and then we will finish the check in process." Asked for fire wood, brought way more than I was quoted and paid. Excellent service and would come back. - Jack&Wanda

This is a lovely, small COE park located in the woods with water and electric hook ups (there is a dump station). The roads are gravel and the sites are some sort of dirt/sand. There is a steepish hill to climb to get up to the camping loop and no one seemed to have trouble. Sites and roads are big enough for big rigs. Our assigned site was immaculate having been raked (and it was a large site) and the fire pit was clean. We are traveling with a motorcycle tent trailer so clean bathrooms are important to us and these were great. The toilet stalls are some of the roomiest I have seen and even though there is just one shower each for men and women, it was spacious with plenty of room for clothing and toiletries. Interaction with the staff was pleasant. Verizon cell and hot spot worked well. Just a couple of minor negatives. The trash dumpster is all the way outside the swing arm gate exiting the campground and they do not sell any ice. Not sure why more people do not utilize this campground because it is wonderful. We would return if ever in the area again. - roadking

We most enjoy going to COA sites and this one did not disappoint. Each site was equipped with water and electric and a picnic table. The setting for each was so peaceful. we had our 20 foot travel trailer and loved just sitting in our comfy chairs and enjoying watching the leaves sway in the trees, the birds come and go and just the forest setting. There are two hosts on site and they take turns working five days on and five days off. They were both pleasant and helpful when assistance was needed. There is a dump site on the way out.
There is a boat launch site and the water looks so welcoming but apparently the water is hazardous to swim in so swimming is not allowed. Though we did not play, many people were availing themselves of the disc golf. The playground is conveniently located as is fire wood for purchase at the host location. There are many hiking trails and the ones along the water are easy to traverse. A most welcoming campground. - John-Jean

Tight, piggy back sites. No lawn care. Weeds everywhere. Sharp turn into park, and tight backing in. The fire ring for our site had garbage in it, under our picnic table. Not worth staying here, the other park is 100% better. - Lin and Rich

Entry gate, you call ranger on a two way radio for entry and then it is downhill and sharp hairpin left turn into campground. Spaces in open area are very tight, mostly dirt, forget trying to open your awning. Our neighbor had theirs open on our arrival and our slide almost hit it. Spaces so close so you can hear every word your neighbor says, you basically have 6 feet to each side and 1 foot to the rear. Spaces in open area are about 50-60 feet long and they tried to put two 38 foot motorhomes back to back in a single 60 ft site. Tow vehicle had to be parked in separate area and with rear neighbor you had to walk around and through the mud, since it had rained. Unlike many others, we were not allowed to pick our site, we were shown to our site. One of the worse setups I have ever seen, an opinion many others arriving shared.
Bathrooms are old but appear clean, but did not use. The pool and spa area looked clean, but again did not use. There is a small store, arcade, and dining room for activities.
This camp has certainly given us an answer to purchasing a Thousand Trails membership and that is NO. This is the third Thousand Trails we have stayed at on our cross country trip and will never book with Thousand Trails again. They have no problem taking your money, but it is certainly not used for maintenance. Original booking was for two nights, we left after one.
Hookups were good, although we were instructed to use the incorrect box so we had to change when our rear neighbor arrived. - which2

Very small and tight spaces with no room for slides or awnings to be put out unless within a foot - maybe two of the other camper. Good hook-ups and seem new with 30-50 amp. WiFi is $6.00 per day and limited to a short time for checking email. Real nice pool and hot tub inside, nice store and pond area. - morgan10
