Difficult turn, up a steep hill to get to the site they put us in. There were other, better sites so not sure why they stuck us in the back 40. Site was very unlevel, had a wooden patio that was so high we couldn't open our door as electric stairs came out and crashed into the side. We had to move away from the "crate patio" which made it difficult to park the car and then we just barely reached the hookups. The sites could use some TLC. - mdjr

Absolutely nothing wrong with this park. Sites are level and plenty of room for maneuvering in our 40 footer. - Charisma1965

We stayed here with a large tour group so we were led to our site after unhooking the tow car. The site was not level and the tires came off the ground in the front. Very short site as we had to park our tow car on the grass next to the RV and almost in the neighbor's site. The roads are very narrow and made it very difficult for our big rig to make the wide turns to exit. We had to back up a couple of times so that we would not scratch the sides of the rig on the overgrown trees. The staff were very friendly and our pooches liked all of the dog walking areas available. We would not stay here again if in the area. - Weld304

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

Reservation was simple, check in was fast and staff member was very helpful and friendly. Site was very open, which was fine as the weather was not overly warm. If it was mid-summer I would prefer one of the shaded spots. Quite level and during heavy rain, site drained well. Park is spotless and staff are constantly checking the area. Park is gated with card entry system. There are a number of seasonals, well kept with friendly owners. We will stay here again. - demoon

A very nice park. Large pull through sites, very clean, nice layout. The pool area was very nice and was still open the third week of September. Excellent power. Nice bath house, clean, good water pressure, hot water. Employees were very nice. There are some seasonal sites. Would recommend. We camped in a 5th wheel. - SteveandAnn

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

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

Location, location, location. That's what Charlestown Breachway is all about. Hard to beat being RIGHT on the ocean for $20/night. We camped in our Roadtrek and kept the back doors open at night to listen to the surf and catch the breeze. Beautiful. Fellow campers are very friendly. Convenient to beach and kayaking/fishing. Yes, space is VERY tight. This is not a campground but rather a parking lot with space for your camper & table/chairs/awning. Just know going into it that you are here for the location. We found the staff to be very friendly and accommodating. Our stay involved 2 site transfers (best we could do given how last minute we booked). Check out is 11am. Neither of the campers leaving the site we were moving to were out by 11 but the staff worked with us to get them moving. Now let's talk generator use. It's a problem. Generator use is allowed 8am-8pm and there are folks who run it the WHOLE time. There are no rules as to where you can place your portable unit. The guy next to us put his at the rear of his coach, which was right outside our coach. Very loud & gasoline smell ALL DAY. Some regulations on generator use would be very welcome. Have 2 hour windows for generator use would be much better. A few people brought their home generators to use and those were particularly loud. Rules in this area need to change. But truly, that is the only downside to this place. We'll be back! - CDG

One change since our last review here is that the sites are now marked at the sides. So you can setup anywhere between the markers as long as you do not go past them. The old rule was to center your camping unit on the rock with the site number on it. This created problems when a MH was pulled in next to a 5th / trailer that was backed in. You would be door to door and very close. The markers allow the units to create some separation. But it can still be really tight here. - Bob and Inga

We arrived early April and found only two other RV's in the park. Absolutely secluded and beautiful beach location. We own a 20' RV and since there's no dump station nor water AND you have limited grey/black tank storage you must conserve and be smart about use or you'll have to drive to the nearest dump site 15 min. You can use a generator but it's only allowed until 8 pm.
I've had family and friends stay here over the summer and its wall to wall campers with loud generators and cramped for space, the bathrooms in April were closed to us. If you're looking for serene and quiet I'd go off season as we will do so in the Fall. If they'd allow generators to go to 10 pm I'd give it a better rating. Not an issue if you have the larger RV's, a challenge if you have ones with limited power and water capacities. - koeka

This is an excellent little state campground located in Pachaug State Forest. Most of the sites are large and spread out. However, it is primitive; no hookups, no dump station, very limited cell phone service, outhouses only. There is a water station provided, but nothing you could hook a hose to for refilling an RV water tank. The pond has a nice beach and swimming area, the water is very clean and clear. It is also a great place for fishing, and there are numerous trails in the area that provide unlimited hiking. We stayed here for 8 nights, having to drive out once to refill the water tank at a gas station and dump the tanks at another state campground. The road is a little rough getting in and out, but navigable with a 33 foot motorhome. It can be tough to get a camping site here since it is rather small and reservations are not taken. The low price tends to attract younger crowds also, many of whom are looking for a cheap place to throw a party. The Rangers do a pretty good job of keeping the noise down though, and actually removed a large crowd from a neighboring campsite in the middle of the night during our stay. Overall our stay here was pleasant and we will probably stay here again. - Strahwk

We chose this campground because of the proximity to Mystic and Newport. The sites were spacious and level. We had a bad experience because we were next to a pavilion and one night there was extremely loud music until 9:00 P.M. We would stay there again but would ask if there were dances with loud music that night. - HaveDieselWillTravel

We stayed after the season, so no one was in the office. Luckily the Fed-X guy was there on the campground phone with someone. When he was done he handed me the phone to talk with someone about checking in. They told us what site to go to and that they'd be by to settle up later on. The site was a level pull thru. Connections were very easy. It was pretty typical of a resort style campground...fairly close to your neighbor, but not intrusive. There was a pool and a lot of recreational activities to do in season. There was also a large rec hall that I think sold food. I can't really find anything bad to say about the place. They never came to collect the money, but when we were leaving I noticed someone in the office so I pulled over and paid. $38 for a campsite in New England was pretty darn good, as that area tends to be too expensive. I would definitely go back, and recommend it for both overnighters and a destination campground. - villager04

We stayed off-season, just after Labor Day. This campground has LOTS of amenities and many seasonal campers. We like the added touch of having an escort show us to the site (large park and it's nice to go to the correct site on the first try when you have a camper, trailer or RV). For a family, this park is awesome. So much to do for little ones, tweens and teens alike. Train rides (under 10), mini golf, pool, bball, bocci, shuffleboard...so much! Full service rec center with ice cream socials and pancake breakfasts as well as pool tables and games. Restrooms were clean, in fact we saw them being serviced 4 times in our barely 2 night stay. Showers need some updating, for sure. Tight and dingy. The park has a heavy seasonal base but, unlike some parks we've been to, these folks were very friendly and went out of their way to say hello. One fellow camper even gave us a ride in his golf cart so we wouldn't have to carry two loads of wood to our site (quite a walk from the office). Staff was friendly and accommodating. Great campground for those who like lots of activity. A little big and busy for us - but that's just our preference and no slight on this campground. - CDG

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
