This is an update to our posting of last year. Since that time, Foxwoods has made changes to their RV parking area. Firsy, it is smaller now that the gas station and convenience stores have been built. These are actually a plus - since we could walk over and get coffee in the morning and gas up without leaving the grounds. That is the only good thing. The worst part is that they now allow buses in the RV area. This means that you are surrounded by buses running continuously with fumes and noise all day and night. It finally gets quiet at 6 am. We stayed for 2 nights like that and couldn't wait to get out of there. I tried to complain to their transportation department but my call got put thru to voicemail and of course, no one ever called me back. Foxwoods has been our preferred casino spot for over 17 years. But no more. I will not go back. Foxwoods is a joke in that area. What a disappoint with Foxwoods! - loringsontheroad

Foxwoods is a great destination spot for an overnight or weekend of dry docking. The resort accommodates RVs of all sizes in a designated parking area, within walking distance of the casinos, although shuttles run 24/7. You will need to check in with security, as most casinos require. Although there is nothing particularly outstanding about their parking area, it is free, the security is good and the casinos offer a lot to do. We've been coming to Foxwoods for over 15 years, always staying at hotels, prior to getting our TT. It is so much nicer not having to rush to get out of the room in the morning; we can sleep in as long as we like now! - loringsontheroad

Great location! Kids loved the area and were able to linkup with other children their age around the camp. Bathrooms were very clean as well as the property itself. Really enjoyed swimming and being able to have a quiet relaxing time with family and friends! Staff was extremely helpful and on demand to help as needed! Love it here. - Ronnied55

First Book Early as you don't want your family to miss out on this great adventure. Strawberry Park Resort is perfect for what I was looking for. I have a 16 year old and five year old grandson. So I needed a mix of activities for each of them. Clean restrooms and showers but could use more of them during the busy times. They have three pools and two hot tubs. Adult only pool and hot tubs. Wading pool for the youngest ones to a huge pool with diving board for the bigger kids. Also which I found invaluable as my eyesight is not as good as it used to be, is that they have plenty of extra eyes to keep a watch on kids... Plus most are young enough the kids love them. They just had a splash pad open up that is great fun. They have so many activities! From live bands, Bingo with approx 300-400 people a night to a hypnotist that is REAL!! Arts and Crafts with many open fields, Baseball, Soccer, Boccie to many to list.
They have golf carts if you're early enough to rent as well. They changed their pet policy so now you can walk your dogs to the safe pet areas for exercise. Just please pick up after them. - Gina Falt

Nice park. Plenty of stuff for the the kids. They do a good job organizing activities. We stayed here over one of the 'Halloween' weekends in October. The sites are tightly packed but nice. Wifi is free for one hour a day. It's fee based after that. There is a huge number of mobile home sites here. I would think of this place more of a mobile home park with some RV and camping spots. With that said, everything is very well kept. We will likely stay here again. - FamilyJ

Easy access for Big Rigs (we have a 45ft + toad)
Very clean showers and bathroom: Having no sewer hook-ups, I took our three children to the shower house daily.
Lots to do for children: Heated pool, playground, mini-golf, and laser tag
Super easy drive to Mystic Seaport
Laundry facility clean and reasonably priced
Pump-out every three nights stayed, but no pump outs on Sunday. We were leaving early Monday and came in on Thursday so we did not get a pump-out.
No middle walkway to shower houses so you have to walk all the way around each row to get to the showers. Easy if its just you, but a pain when you are taking a 1 and 3 year old to the showers.
Overall: We would stay here again if planning on going to Mystic. Several seasonal rigs on site that were extremely well-cared for and maintained. Everyone was very friendly. - RVThatFamily

Easy drive to visit Mystic. Extremely long, 50 amp, pull-thru site. Easily leveled. No shade, however some sites have shade. No sewer, but free pump out wagon every 3 days. Clean CG & friendly, easy check-in. Pull-thru sites park alternating directions, so hook-ups share sides of the RVs (not the same hook-up). Hook-up side is fairly close with enough room for slides, but the picnic side between RVs is quite spacious. Excellent WiFi with plenty of cable channels. Good Verizon service. Fun things for kids to do. We would stay here again. - Gayle E.

We really liked this campground and wanted to score it higher, but because of them not having sewer, they need to make accommodations to the people who don't have big holding tanks. They do pump you out every 3 days for free, but I had to go ask them to do it, some people they automatically did it. They don't have a wash sink for the tent campers and smaller RV's to wash dishes. They need ventilation in the bathrooms, it became very hot in there on warm days. You shouldn't walk through sites, but there is no pathway in the middle to get to the showers which both buildings are on the other side of all the pull throughs. Had to walk a long way around to get to showers. Showers and bathrooms were very clean. Wi-Fi worked pretty well and cable TV worked well. AT&T service was fine. Close to many of the attractions in the area. Pool was nice and they had plenty of chairs. Catered mainly to Class A's and big 5th wheels, but there was a mix of smaller trailers and some tents. Tons of room for the big rigs to maneuver. Sites themselves were pretty deep and the back ins had a lot of room on the sides. Pull throughs were long but smaller on the sides. Small store on site. Would definitely come back again. - acenorm

I was some what disappointed in this KOA. We stay in KOAs mostly and this place was on the most part was a good location for us. However, when we were in camp on our stay we had people going through our campsite going to the pool and the very large Pillow Jump. The roads are very narrow. If you have a 45 footer you have just enough room in the pull-throughs for your front cap and rear cap. The water and septic are REALLY close to each other, a condition that could be dangerous to your health. Our spot was empty when we got there but the weeds were up over the ankles. You would think that the weeds could be cut when it needs to be cut. The absence of signage to the KOA is problematic. The only sign that we saw was the one at the driveway of the entrance. The site next door had a sewer problem that was caused by the pipe being 6 to 7 inches below the ground so that there was no way to hook up to it and have the sewer pipe stay connected. You know what that does but the office was no help to their guest on their 4 day stay. What a mess. - Scooter & Crew

Somewhat older, company owned, KOA park. Sites are mostly grass that is semi-level with aging power connections. Features standard KOA amenities for kids like pool, playground, etc. Convenient to I-95 and nearby port towns. Had to pull trailer to front of site to find level area. Parked behind trailer, on site. - Dunwoodyradio

This is a very big and busy RV park. Right off 95, but noise wasn't an issue. Given its location, I would say $51/night was a good price, but this was for water and 30 amp only. Full service sites are limited. Also, using your own washer is prohibited due to well/septic. Our site was level with grass/dirt; some trees in our section, many in other sections. Our particular site was roomy, but the driving lanes are a little on the narrow side.
Very well-run park with an abundance of family-oriented activities. (Pools, basketball, volleyball, shuffleboard, outdoor movie night - could go on and on.) Ver friendly staff. There were children everywhere, all well-behaved. Lots of seasonal trailers, some older. I would venture that this is a popular weekend destination for locals.
Would definitely stay here again, but with better planning so as to book a full-service, 50 amp site. - Milo&Millie

Very nice park with a lot of activities for the kids. Kept very clean. Not sure if your an adult without kids this is a great park for you, but if you have kids its a lot of fun. The outback section is nice and more private then the main area. - john55

Family oriented CG with beautiful facilities. My site was right on the river because I camp in a VW Westfalia, and can use a tent site.
On site restaurant is very nice when you don't want to cook. We had torrential rain, and had to break camp with everything soaking wet.
The dance on Saturday night was too loud, and too frantic. Tone it down! - JudoJeff

This is definitely one of the better maintained campgrounds we have stayed at. Jim and Lin really care about the grounds as owners and it shows. The site itself was more than large enough for our 35' fifth wheel and truck. There was no grass at the site, but plenty just down the road for walking the dogs. Even though we stayed over Labor Day weekend, we had very few campers around us, making for a very quiet stay. The utilities were great and wifi was solid, no cable but we picked up the local channels over our antenna. Verizon cell coverage was fine. The laundry had two washers and two dryers, at $1.75 each. It is about a 20 minute drive to Mystic, but aside from that, there is nothing immediately around the campground. If you're looking for a nice quiet campground to spend some time, this is for you. - pfogleboch

Road to park has overhanging trees, but they've been "trimmed" by previous RV's. Dirt sites and roads make for dirty rigs, and the trees over the sites drop tons of stuff onto roof and awnings. Quite a few creepy-crawlies too, but all that's to be expected in the woods. However, the sites are very large, and the pond and grass areas are very nice. Very quiet area. Owners are extremely nice and helpful. Wifi excellent. Only a handful of sites can put up a dish (due to the trees). No cable, but could get a few channels with antenna. Phone service (Verizon) good. - OTR again

I can't say enough about this campground, the place is absolutely beautiful!
Campsites are big and private, and the owners are the best! Come here once and like us, you will hooked! - Virginia c

This RV parking was enthusiastically recommended by another blogger and was everything they said it was! My husband and I loved it. Granted - this is not a real RV campground - but is a great place to stay if you are looking for a weekend destination. The view from the designated RV lot was spectacular! We were high up and had a delightful breeze and sat outside with our awning extended, reading, eating and just delighting in the view and weather. In the evening we took the convenient shuttle to the casino, had dinner and walked around for several hours. While we relied on only our trailer for its power, the battery and propane were enough for an overnight to make breakfast, lunch; our water tank was full so we had everything we needed. - loringsontheroad

This is a great place to park while going to the casino, especially on a rainy weekend. There is no cost for staying here. It's not a campground, but more a place to park. Call for a permit and security gives you a pass good for seven. It's dry camping, so it's better for short stays. They have a shuttle service to the casino. We camped here in a travel trailer. - ballard01887

For a casino parking lot, they have one of the best! We ended up with a spot over looking the river: a great view. They bend over backwards for those looking for a No Cost alternative to over-nighters and even extended stays of others. Good shuttle service to Casino, and the Casino itself is beautiful. If back this way again, we will stay again. I might add, a much better offering than the park down the road. - acampingfan

The 2005 review was right about the seasonal campsites - but unfortunately I didn't read RV Park Reviews before we booked! Many of the sites were not well-kept and the RVs were in disrepair. (I don't mean old, I mean falling apart!) The beach appeared OK but we didn't swim that weekend. The weirdest thing was what happened at night - I don't know where everyone went, but it didn't look like anyone was at their campers (even though many fires were left burning unattended) and we didn't find anyone congregated in common areas when we walked around. The seasonal campers didn't seem as friendly as other campgrounds we've been at. - vermontstergirl

The facilities are aged. The campground is occupied by about 90% permant sites. Some of the sites were very trashy. Would not have stayed if any thing else was available. Dot not recommend this campground to anyone. - bcampbell

I liked this CG, it was very quiet and relaxing. We were on a tent site with my Westfalia VW camper. Roads are gravel, but easy access even for big rigs. Owners are very pleasant, and go out of their way to help. They have a fishing & swimming pond, I didn't catch anything, but enjoyed trying. Plenty of activities for the kids. I thought the Saturday DJ dance was too dark and gloomy, with too many flashing, colored lights. I like to dance, but that would've given me a headache, so I left. - JudoJeff

This is a beautiful picturesque campground. Camp units were on 90% of the full hookup section but none were occupied. We stayed in the short term W/E/Gray water only section. Our 2 day stay was very pleasant. The Wi-Fi was excellent. Air TV was limited. Direct TV was available in the office lounge. The staff were very accommodating. Relatively close to Mystic, Providence, and Norwich. It looked like it might a busy/fun family park in the summer time. We would camp here again. - peterray

Park is off the main highway a few miles on a narrow road. Heavily wooded area, no satellite signal. Only a couple over the air TV channels. Roads and sites are gravel/dirt. Power and water were good. We would stay here again. - kmgulf
