Consistent Wifi, but sometimes slow. Beautiful grounds on a pretty, pretty hill. Dirt sites. Dirt roads. Someone mowed the (thin) weeds/grass on both sides of us and dust filled the air, but I guess that can't be helped until the greenery gets thicker. Very nice staff. Very low water pressure; plan on using your pump for more pressure. You just can't have a lovelier place to stay. I would have given it a 10 if the roads were paved and there was at least a concrete patio. We camped at GrandView CampResort & Cottages in a Motorhome.

This was my first visit to Grandview and I was pleasantly surprised at the cleanliness of the facilities and the pool. The staff were friendly and helpful.

Our cabin was great! It was clean and spacious. There was a very large closet and built in drawers for all of our gear. There was a small dorm size refrigerator in the room too.

There was a nice mix of RV sites, tent sites and cabins. We camped at GrandView CampResort & Cottages in a Cabin.

Tips for other Campers:

Visit Gillette Castle State Park. Take a ride over the East Haddam swing bridge and drive to Chester where you can take a small ferry boat across the CT River to the castle.

This campground is a real treasure. We learned that it was purchased just a couple years ago by a couple who have worked tirelessly to make this into a comfortable, tidy and peaceful haven. Of particular interest is the history of this park. It was originally home to a 1950s era hotel. Although the hotel, long-abandoned, had to be torn down, the owners incorporated several items salvaged from the original hotel. For instance, the bathrooms stalls are each framed with doors from the old hotel. Restored vanity mirrors are mounted to the wall in front of each bathroom sink. Flowers have been trained to grow up the headboards of old metal bed frames. The bathrooms were spotless (far cleaner, I'm afraid, than my own at home). The pool was very well maintained. We also enjoyed the beautiful wildflowers used in the landscaping throughout the grounds. What makes this place very special is the couple who owns it, and their sister who lives there. They were just the nicest people, and so ready to help us out when we had some trouble with our camper. I'm so glad we chose to stay here. We camped at GrandView CampResort & Cottages in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

The campground owners gave several tips on things to do in the area. We enjoyed touring the Gilette Castle State Park and nearby Submarine Force Library and Museum in Groton (free admission!!!).

We again enjoyed our stay, found continued improvements being made to the campground. Some of which are 8, 50amp WES sites along with some additional WE sites. Also with the much needed removal of the dilapidated hotel building has drastically improved the overall looks of the campground. Geography at the campground is mostly open on a slightly graded hill. Our hookups were in good working order. Our WiFi was slow, okay signal on our Verizon cell phone. Owners were professional, friendly and informative and will go out of their way to make sure your stay is enjoyable. Would certainly return again or recommend this place to anyone. We camped at GrandView CampResort & Cottages in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Down the street is Grist Mill Market, nice little country grocery store for picking up salads and things for the grill. Check out the nearby Moodus reservoir, great for fishing and kayaking.

Totally agree with previous review. What these owners/hosts have already accomplished in just two short seasons is amazing! Top quality improvements. They're happy/cheerful folk and tireless in their passion to make your experience wonderful and memorable. Countryside is gorgeous, especially with fall colors during our stay. Enjoyed the atmosphere so much we extended 2 more days. Bathrooms are spotless. Wi-Fi range could be better. Verizon worked fine. Hopeful travels return us to CT and this great park! Full hookup sites will likely be ready next season. We camped at GrandView CampResort & Cottages in a Motorhome.

This is a campground under new ownership. Owners have sunk their hearts into upgrading all of the facilities at the campground. Some of the improvements are the new camp store, upgraded/new bathrooms, rec hall,pool, cottages, pavilion for get togethers and so much more. Geography at campground is mostly open on a slightly graded hill. Our hookups were in good working order. One issue was the C area sites which had little privacy between sites because of the location of the power boxes, my guess the owners will address this issue also. Campfire wood was the driest we have ever seen. Our Wi-Fi was poor, okay signal on our Verizon cell phone. No full hook up sites as of now but campground offers a honey wagon service, dump station is in good working order. Owners were professional, friendly and informative and will go out of their way to make sure your stay is enjoyable. Would certainly return again or recommend this place to anyone. We camped at GrandView CampResort & Cottages in a Travel Trailer.
