35 RV Parks near Old Mystic, Connecticut
May 2017 - $35.00
Campground has been upgraded with many new amenities since our last visit. There are no sewer hookups in the facility, but free pump out is provided on day you select. (Not available Sunday or on day of departure). Water/electric/cable were very good. Free WiFi is reliable but would not play anything that the system apparently considered "streaming." including some some pictures in e-mails. There was a lot of rain prior to and during our visit. Our site simply did not drain. Pad was gravel but the rest was grassy with mud. The 50 amp sites seemed much better. - demoon

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

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

Kind of an old KOA, adequate for a few nights stay but I wouldn't spend more than that here. Check-in was okay but I asked for a site without trees and of course when I pulled to my site it was in between 2 large trees. I stopped and called the office & went through available sites and found one without trees. Sites are gravel and not level at all; I extended my levelers and still we were tilting forward; very close to your neighbor which mens you will hear their music, dogs barking, etc. Nice playground for kids. - nyrngrz

This is a convenient stop off I-95; it also is one of the rare campgrounds in New England that is open year-round. As we find with most KOAs, the sites are too close together. We had to listen to our neighbor's very noisy furnace all night long. Since we were there off-season, the pool wasn't open. - Cape Cod kayaker

We only had a brief stay but we were impressed with the help form all staff. Very nice KOA. As we are from Alabama, if we are in the area again this KOA will be on our list to stay. - PSIDave

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

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 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

As stated in previous reviews, this is a newer park. The roads can get dusty and there is not much shade yet. Except for those two things, this park was very nice. The staff was excellent and was constantly working on improvements to the park. The park was about 2/3 full and there was very little noise. The facilities and pool were well kept and very clean. The wifi was very good and consistent the entire weekend we were there. Overall we had a great experience at this park and will return in the future. - RobS80

We stayed here over the 3 day Labor Weekend and the rate was $240 for the 3 days and the park was very busy. There were many activities for both children and adults including live entertainment in the pavilion. This park is only a couple of years old with easy access and large pads. There is limited shade due to young trees. There is a large section of seasonal sites. We would stay again on a non holiday period with a more affordable rate. - lyzzards

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

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
