35 Parks near Old Mystic, Connecticut
Oct 2016 - $45.00
This place is pretty quiet, not near any trains or highways. The lack of full hookups is a negative. There was no fenced dog area. The internet didn't work in spaces 1 or 2; apparently, we were too far from the router. Back in spaces (at least ours, 1 and 2) were huge; we didn't have to disconnect. - beckydmc

Very nice park with good gravel roads, very quiet, very clean and grassy spacious sites but little shade. Utilities including cable and WiFi worked well. No sewer connections but a dump station and a pump out service available. Playground area for kids with a mini golf course and a small fishing lake. Nice clean bathroom/shower facilities but no shower mats and floors get wet so bring an extra towel to stand on. Great place to stay to explore the Mystic Seaport that we enjoyed and an easy day trip to Newport, Rhode Island. Easy highway access from I95. Park has a small store but there is gas and groceries in Mystic. Things are a little tight in town so I suggest setting up in the park then going in. Witnessed a Class A bang into another car trying to maneuver in one of the gas stations (should of had a spotter). - utchaps

It was a surprise to see such an attractive well kept entry. Very inviting. The reservation ladies were very helpful and made checking in easy. This is a wonderful clean park with secure entry. The entire area is grass and the sites are large, level and many have trees for shade. We were pleased to see how much room there is between sites. The landscape staff was busy trimming and mowing when we arrived. Every area is kept very nice. I am not fond of private parks but this one really is nice. - twotimes

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

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Mystic KOA! It was clean and kid friendly. Our kids, 8 and 10, met new friends right away. The KOAs are pricey but they always seem to have the best families camping at them. We had a ball partying with three families from New York. We visited the Mystic Aquarium and it was a pleasant surprise! Super clean and the exhibits were to notch. A must visit. The beluga whales are fantastic. Having so much fun makes it easy to write a 10 star review. Kids loved the bouncy pillow and we loved the safe feeling we had as we let them run free with their newly found friends. - Howls_Castle

Pull throughs are close and unlevel. Large CG with lots of cabins and many full timers. Full timers are removed from the transient area. Lots of noise from 95 but AC drowned out most. Dog park is quite a hike from the pull throughs and very small. Not made for dogs the size of a lab but at least she could be off leash. Grass in dog park definitely needed cutting. Lots of large open space. Typical KOA with activities, pool, etc. but we are retired and didn't participate in activities. Clean laundry facility and constant cleaning of rest rooms at pool. - DeeA

This is one of the few campgrounds in Ct. We were visiting family and used this as a stopover on our travels. We were in the pull thru A section. Long pull thru site. This was good as sites are on the narrow side, and many of the hookups are over in the neighboring site. Sewer connection is 2-3 feet from the water connection.
Friendly staff, plenty of space to walk dogs. Playground and pool. We pulled in local channels via antenna. But they do have cable. Wifi was adequate. We will stay again. - luv2gowalkabout

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

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

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

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

Ashway is a fairly large, well laid-out RV park with, it seems, about 1/3rd to 1/2 semi-permanent. We lucked out with a pull-through despite our tiny motorhome. The site is very long, gravel and grass, close to each other but not too close, not very level, great hookups, a nice picnic table, a very nice grill/fire-pit but almost none of the sites have any shade. The WiFi here is impressively good. I could also get 2-bars of Verizon 4G signal. Includes cable TV with about 12 channels. The pool is very nice, and they have an adult-only hot-tub, all very clean. The playground area and game room pavilion look new and are quite impressive, including large bathrooms with showers. Laundry has 2 washers and 3 dryers, very clean and reasonable. The management seems very nice, and the store stocks a few items. Access card is $20, refundable upon return. Dirt/gravel road that connects the park to the main asphalt road has a lot of small potholes and can be dusty. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would stay there again. - RobtL

The post below by Snoopy216 is not Ashaway RV Resort. The poster
was confused, as Ashaway RV is 7 miles from the ocean, has
no trees and has wide open roads, and modern bathrooms as the
place is only two years old.
This campground is about location, it is convenient to Newport,
Mystic, Groton, New London. Fairly ease off I-95. Easy in and out.
Quite a few seasonal sites, but they were all spotless and well
maintained. On the downside, sites are a little close, and there is
no shade. Many sites are laid out wrong, so the sun is pounding on
the "social side" of the coach till 7pm. Interior roads are quite
dusty. A little more barking dogs than most parks. Very nice pool
area and game room. Park is just two years old and they are
working on improvements constantly. - macandphyl

Each section of this park had one toilet and one shower. The shower and bathroom looked like something from the 1940s. Filthy. Seasonal guests mostly with very little room for your trailer to squeeze in. Sites are set on each other with very little room to do anything. The only nice thing about this place was the ocean was within walking distance of the place. Good Sam rated this place as a 9/10/9 I don't know who did that but they must have been drunk to rate this dump that. I talked to one of the cleaners and they said that the park was bought by someone else and there was to be upgraded. Fat chance! - snoopy216

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

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

Stayed at this campground many times over the years. Great location to the only real asset RI has which are their beaches. As far as the campground goes it is not given the maintenance it requires to offer safe access to the facility. Tree limbs are hanging to low everywhere. The state of RI like other north eastern states employ lazy personal that are there for the check instead of the pride of having a descent job with yes responsibilities. I witnessed the campground staff taking their afternoon nap deep off the trail on at least two occasions. We all know this will never change. It's to bad because this campground has more potential than it state is giving it. - tinman
