This is very much a family oriented campground, very handy to I-95. For seniors like us, it is very expensive with more economical alternatives around. Unfortunately, late October, the choices are scarce. Many of the activities are suited for those with children and it must serve them well as the place was packed. Our rate was just over $60 per night for 30-amp, water, excellent cable TV and electric (no sewer - dump station or pay pump-out service). There are probably over 500 restaurants within a 25 mile radius and lots of interesting places on the shore and inland. There is a repair shop on site. Staff is friendly. We would stay here again if no alternative. We camped at Mystic KOA in a Motorhome.

Good RV park with level pull through sites and reasonably good WiFi. Staff were excellent and it is a good place for kids and pets. Restrooms were clean and functional. Stayed 4 nights. We camped at Mystic KOA in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed at the Mystic KOA on the way up to Nova Scotia. We stayed for two nights, and spent a day at the Mystic Seaport. The Mystic KOA is decent KOA. The sites are fairly spacious and level. The restrooms and bath houses are utilitarian, but clean. The Wi-Fi worked pretty well. It was a decent place to stay. However, it is not itself a destination. If it weren't for the Mystic Seaport and the other surrounding attractions, the campground wouldn't be enough to keep my family interested for more than a day. But for a place to stop on the way somewhere else, or for visiting the Seaport, this place is great. And it is easy on and off the highway. We camped at Mystic KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Wasn't particularly thrilled with this campground. I know it was early in the season so I didn't expect much. I was just looking for a CG close to Mystic to spend a few days with my boys. However, I didn't see much I would want to come back to. Sites and roads aren't the greatest. Water pressure was low all weekend and my inlet screen for fresh water was filled with dark mud when I disconnected. Pressure was poor to even do a good black tank clean out. Facilities need some updating. We camped at Mystic KOA in a Motorhome.

We got there a little early. Absolutely grateful. They had us just come straight in and gave us a free night. They gave us a nice pull through that was open for satellite services. The sites were all gravel, pretty level, with grass areas, brick patios, BBQ pit, a rocking bench, and table with chairs. The laundry room was real clean with newer appliances. Not far from local shopping and tourist amenities. We would come here again! We camped at Mystic KOA in a Motorhome.

Great park if you have kids. Incredible amount of things for them to do. Bit of a problem leveling our rig, once again, front tires almost off the ground and still not level. Extremely friendly staff. No problems with utilities except for the cable receptacle didn't fit properly. This is a very busy campground, many activities going on. Sites were large enough not to be right on top of the next camper. Easy to get in and out of. If in the area again we would stay here. We camped at Mystic KOA in a Motorhome.
Never again. Overall the campground was good. Problem is with visitor rules and common sense. My sister-in-law, traveling with us called her son, who lives in New London, to come and pick her up for a day out. The office person wanted her son to park his car in a lot that was more of a swamp than parking space, and she wanted him to pay the visitor fee before he could walk from the main gate to the motorhome in the pouring rain. The park wasn't anywhere near full at the time. We were parked up on the hill facing a field. Also, the office person would not allow her son to bring her back to the site at night due to the one car per site rule. Rules are rules but some common sense and courtesy when the park is not packed tight should prevail. The personnel that were out and about doing maintenance were extremely courteous and friendly. We camped at Mystic KOA in a Motorhome.

Very nice place. Since it was so off season, there wasn't anything going on. We were in the safari field for a family reunion. We rented 4 sites and 4 deluxe cabins. Kids loved the bounce pillow and playgrounds. Sites were level with water and electric. No sewered sites in the field, but dump station was convenient and clean. Great restrooms. We chose this place for it's proximity to Mystic Aquarium and it's ability to site our whole family together. We will go back again. We camped at Mystic KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed at 5 campgrounds while in Connecticut and while this one was quite nice, the cost was exorbitant, and the staff exhibited the typical cockiness we have noticed in most KOA parks we have stayed at in the past; it was quite off-putting. We may stop again if we need to but not for more then a day. We camped at Mystic KOA in a Motorhome.

This is a typical KOA, but much too expensive for what you get. We paid $63 after the KOA discount, for a 30 amp water/electricity/ sewer site that was not level. The check in was ok, but no information was given unless you specifically ask for it. Restrooms were clean but in need of a complete cleaning (spider webs, etc). The campground is a 15 to 20 minute drive to Mystic and I think we will look for other places if we return. We camped at Mystic KOA in a Motorhome.

Beautiful Park. This was a last minute reservation for us and we were very happy with our site. The staff is very helpful. We had a repair we had to tend to and there is a full service RV sales business right outside the main gate. I would recommend unhooking if you are flat towing as some of the sites have a bit of a sharp hill that could cause you to scrape for a bigger rig. We will delfinitely return to camp here for a longer stay. We camped at Mystic KOA in a Motorhome.

We spent the weekend and found this campground to be perhaps one of our favorite ones this season. The staff was friendly but not intrusive; the sites were clean and maintained; the play area and pool area very nice. We will be coming back here again. We camped at Mystic KOA in a Travel Trailer.
This is a very well run KOA corporate site. The camping sites were a little on the small side making it tight when you have your vehicle parked as well. The pool, kids playground, jumping pillow and entertain are great if you are travelling with children. A very well stocked store and friendly staff. Mystic village is a lovely place to visit but for me the best day I had was when we visited Newport, R.I. which is only a short drive away. It was gorgeous. We would definitely camp here again. I am not a very big fan of KOA, but this is a good site. We camped at Mystic KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a very pretty KOA, but if you look past the immediate surface you see some issues. The cable TV was very fuzzy, so we weren't able to use it. My husband and kids had to take Bleach wipes to the shower house and clean before taking showers. Very dirty with mold, dead bugs and cob webs. I refused to shower in there facility, i showered in the RV. Also there was left over towels that were never cleaned out or removed until we complained multiple times. The playground was awesome for our little ones. Easy access to the freeway, but nothing around within walking distance. We camped at Mystic KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Rate reflects Value Kard discount. This is a fairly nice KOA: a corporate park. The staff was friendly and helpful, but didn't offer information unless asked. Our site was mostly level, the bathrooms were basically clean, the grounds were for the most part clean. Hmmm, I see a pattern here. It felt like just enough was done to be OK, but there was no need to be GREAT. I don't understand why KOA pushes their franchisees to follow the KOA G.R.E.A.T. standards, but fail to live up to those same standards in their corporate parks. Just to be clear, this park was fine, and we wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. However, it was nothing to write home about. We camped at Mystic KOA in a Fifth Wheel.
