We stayed 7 nights. Paid $384 total for an average of $54.86/night. No tax. Reservation process was easy. They collected a 50% deposit upfront with the balance due at check in. I can't swear to it but I believe I was told we would have full hook-ups. Come to find out they don't have sewer but offer free honey wagon service every three days (not on departure day). They also have a very accessible dump station. Check-in was fast and efficient. Allowed us to receive packages which we appreciated. Park wifi was hit or miss. Received DirecTV sat signal. Verizon cell and Verizon Mifi were weak but functional. There were a few quirky things about this park. First - the entrance has a somewhat narrow gate. They habitually park a golf cart in front of the office which prevents you from lining up straight to pass through the gate. Furthermore there is a planter just inside the gate on the right side that you risk hitting because you're angling to the right to avoid the golf cart. The planter is low to the ground so you can't see it. Argh. Second - one morning I was using their shower at approx 8:30am. A cleaning lady called out to me telling me she needed to clean and for me to go to the other bathhouse (during my shower?!). Third - we had significant power issues. It was warm (not crazy hot) and the park was somewhat full (weekend). We noticed our a/c stopped working. Fortunately we were home. We checked and saw our voltage was low. We called the office. A very nice gentleman came promptly and explained their power company only provides a certain power level and that was that. He suggested we remove our surge protector and that would solve the problem. Uh - No - Not an option. We have a cat and obviously won't leave the coach if there is a climate control issue. As such, we had to forfeit plans and stay home one day in order to monitor the situation. For $55/night that's frustrating and unacceptable. If we return to Mystic, we will look for another place to stay. - GottaGoNow

Very nice Sun Communities cg with lots to do for families. There are some very well maintained permanent sites and rental units. While there are no fhu (which I was not told about when making the reservation) they do come to pump you out 2x in a weeks stay. There is plenty of room for a nice dog park but they don't have one. It's a shame as so many folks have dogs here of all sizes. One night there was a group of extremely noisy campers. I learned the next day that someone had called the after hours service who failed to call the manager. He was not happy with the after hours people but did deal with the campers asap. Would definitely stay again. - FT Travelers3

This is a very nice RV park. The sites are large and level, adequate for a class "A" & toad, and wide enough for multiple slideouts. OK, they're gravel / stone but I didn't need any leveling blocks for set-up. Yes, there are seasonal campers but the rigs are nice and well maintained, not trashed-out and tarp covered as in some cg's we've stayed at. The only reason this doesn't get a "10" is the lack of sewer hookups. But it's a minor issue since the cg has a pump-out service every 3 days. - mbopp

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

Attended a rally at this campground and had to get a premium pull thru site. It was very hot this week and the 50 amp electric could not keep up. 106 Volts and our EMS kept kicking out. Even running the HWH on gas, the EMS kept kicking out. Sites were fine, water, cable, sewer all fine, just poor electric. Campground said, yeah, we know.... - oldelmer1

Most often at a KOA you will be led to your site, however we were not taken to our site and missed the turn and had to unhook car and back up. I always thought being taken to a site was a great way to start out, especially at an unfamiliar campground - sad to see this amenity gone. Kids on bikes were riding all around us as we were backing up, again an escort would have avoided this issue - cuz kids will be kids. Roads dusty when we were there and space a little tight. Not supposed use one's washer/dryer here, which a problem for us after 3 days of dry-camping. Lots to do here with kids - dog park not worth going into because small & unkept, but plenty of space to walk dogs otherwise. - 4 Aussies

Sites are way too tight and narrow, not level. Park seems run down to me. no park activities on a holiday weekend was also disappointing. Would not go back. - DieselJunkie

The parking area, Turtle Lot RV, is for RV's only. There are signs pointing the way. Over sized vehicles have a separate lot. We kept to the far side of the lot away from the river and had plenty of space. The river side of the lot gets a bit tight at times. The lot has a bit of grade, but plenty of spots are close enough for the jacks to do the rest. OTA TV was ION type stations only. - Bob and Inga

I have stayed at the Mohegan Sun RV Lot a handful of times now. It serves a great purpose for transient campers looking to use their camper as an affordable way to hit the casinos! There is no cost for the use of the lot, and the views are great overlooking the river. Mohegan Sun provides security guards who occasionally patrol the lot (day and night) along with a shuttle service that will come pick you up from the covered bus stop location in the lot. The shuttle runs approximately every 15-20 minutes making things very convenient. There are no hookups (water, sewer, electric) as it really is JUST an open lot. Spaces are available on a first come, first serve basis. Even without hookups, this spot serves as a great, affordable, and fun way to visit the casino. If you are interested in visiting, download and fill out the form on the Mohegan Sun website (the security guard will come collect it once you arrive, and give you a pass to put in your window.) Highly recommended! - Ripley21

This is a parking area for RVs for those visiting the Casino. It was easy to get to and the security was great. Parking lot is not level so it took a bit of manual levelling, but we had a view of the Thames river. There are no services available, but there also is no charge. If you can boondock for a few days, this is a perfect location! - Linda604

Sites uneven and close together. Most seasonal, single wide trailers. Personnel unfriendly and some rude. Golf carts old and poorly maintained. No one enforces rules. Hard to find anything nice to say except it is located close to Foxwoods and Mystic. - ClaireWal

This is an older park dominated by and catered to seasonal/owners. The staff is very friendly.
Our site was small and very close - but a walk revealed much better spots. The bathrooms are NOT cleaned regularly. They are spacious and designed well, just not clean at all, and were not cleaned the entire weekend. Site rules limiting campers per site are ignored. Fires and conversations go late into the night (no curfew enforced).
Plenty of activities, nice pavilion and rec hall (not used). Three pools, two hot tubs. Golf cart rental is nice, but reserve early. DJ on Saturday night and Bingo (daily) could be moved into the enclosed rec hall to cut down on noise.
The buildings are older, and smell musty or damp most of the time from age. I could not stay in the arcade - instant asthma trigger. Even in the camp store (very nice camp store!) the smell came from the air conditioning - needs service. - SHerzig

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

This is a fairly large park converted from a field. They have a lot of amenities which we didn't use. The sites are gravel with grass in between. A bit of dirt due to allowing outdoor rugs. We were pretty level and most were but there were some sites that had side to side issues. The space between sites was OK. Not too tight but not spacious. Wi-Fi was good, water and electric were fine. I gave the low score because of our initial introduction upon registration. We had called several days ahead asking if we could have mail sent there and they said yes. (The mail was medications). We arrived on Saturday and leaving on Monday. When we got there I asked about the mail and they had not gone to the PO to get it and it was probably closed. I explained the situation and the park handyman was too busy sitting on his stool to go get it or care and the woman behind the desk couldn't leave or make the phone call to the PO. We ended up doing a quick parking job in our site and ran to the PO. Yes, they were closed but the postmaster was still there and was happy to help. I found this lack of customer service to be rude and uncaring. For $64 a night (before passport America) they really should have a care for their guests. - jomark

We paid the Passport America rate of $29.50 per night for a 50 amp FHU pull thru site with cable and wifi. Good value with Passport America, but I don't think I would pay full price. The site was mostly level, but did have some grade at the back end of it. All utilities were good, cable lineup had 32 very clear stations. Wifi was very good with a computer, but our Galaxy smart phone did not care for it. Office staff was very nice and helpful. We came in early as we had just left a 9 am service appointment in nearby CT. The staff was great in accomadating us. They do have gated access here, so you will need a refundable $20 for the access card. As mentioned before, the only real complaint here is that the roads can get very dusty. We would return again if in the area. - Bob and Inga

So many campgrounds describe themselves as a resort. Obviously Ashaway is still a work in progress. The owners have invested in "fun" things and have a nice pool and large event building. During our stay, there were many more travel trailers and fifth wheels staying there than motorhomes. Access road into the campground was dirt and stone and was very dusty. Directions to our site were confusing especially without better marking of site numbers. Sites were not paved and felt rather tight. Our site had very little grass (mostly sandy soil) on the entry side of the motorhome. Hard to keep dirt outside. Given time this park may evolve to be classified as a "resort" but this reviewer believes it fell short of that description. - BerylCop

When it rains outside, I expect a bit of a mess. What I don't expect is to be ankle-deep in mud to the point that I lost a shoe. I don't know about all the areas in this campground, but where we were in 107A, there was nothing but dirt that turned into mud. No gravel, no pavement. Our rig is covered in mud to the likes that I've never seen before. And inside was worse. I put down two bath mats to try and contain the mud but I still ended up on my hands and knees, scrubbing the floor. We've ended up in a campground in Maine that will allow us to wash the rig. It will take a pressure washer and heavy brush to get rid of this mud. In addition, the campground was filled with seasonals. I have no problem with seasonal campers. But I do have a problem when my view out my back window was a mobile home with a mattress and several pallets sitting out in the yard, along with other debris. Everywhere we looked was trashed. The campground is old but there is no excuse for this kind of disrepair. Not for the amount of money we were paying. Sorry, but fun activities for the kids don't make up for an old run down and dirty campground. We left four days early. This was truly the worst campground we've ever been at. The site was also not wide enough. Our slide out was against a tree. I got no help from staff. - Our Simple Life

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

Oh my! What a beautiful RV park. After 6 weeks at the busy beaches of southern Maine, what a treat it was to stay at this wonderful park. Jim! What a great guy! This park is so meticulously maintained. It is so well laid out. No rows of campers here. It is laid out like a housing development in the woods. Huge spaces between our neighbors. Quiet, peaceful, and gorgeous. It was about a 20 minute trip to anywhere. We visited both casinos while here. We visited Mystic & Westerly. WiFi was excellent until the weekend folks arrived; iffy after that. - Arizona Nancy

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

Our rating is Average due to only part of the park was available during our visit. We had driven through Burlingame State Park previously, to find appropriate sites for our 42' Fifth Wheel. However, when we made our reservation, we weren't aware that they close 2/3 of the park after Labor Day. This put us choosing a site unseen. They forbid trimming the trees and our site ended up having branches which would be in the way of many camper sizes. While dry camping, we utilize the bathroom facilities at parks. During our 10 night stay, there was never soap in the bathroom. There was a dispenser, which should be removed if they aren't going to provide soap. This is a beautiful park nature-wise and we know now to expect limited site availability during off-peak. - Pphil

Ditto to all other reviews. We were in the 300's near the bathhouse and boat launch. Very quiet. Only 1/3 park was full. Our site very large with lots of trees and space between for privacy. Site was all sand and gravel and not as level as we would have hoped. But there are very nice level and large sites - just got to know where to go. Baths are older and in need of rehab. Lots of graffiti in the stalls and old concrete floors that could use a serious power wash. $.75 4 minute shower. Only hot water that cannot be regulated? Not good on a 90 degree 90% humidity day! - travlinphoolz

Camped here for one night during the week. Office staff was super nice on check-in. Park was empty because it's past the season and during the week. Can't imagine what the place is like when it's filled up! Too few bathrooms for too many people, I'd bet. Bathrooms were clean but old and rundown.
The beach looked nice, but too small for even 100 people, never mind the crowds that must gather from over 800 campsites. Bikes would be a good idea to bring here, everything is a bit too far to walk, and no place to park a car.
No amenities of any kind, strict no alcohol, no nudity, no cutting of trees.
(Where's the fun in that? If I can't drink beer while cutting down the woods naked, ....) It really is a lovely park and we enjoyed our stay.
The sites are all different sizes and layouts, some useless due to rocks and tree roots, others wide open and perfect. We camped here in our VW Westfalia camper. - JudoJeff
