Stayed 4 nights in our motorhome. CG not set up for motorhomes. Sites all gravel so dusty. Electrical service fluctuated. Hook-ups do not include black water drain, must go outside CG to location next door to drain tanks. Garden hose drain provided for gray water. Lots of activities for kids. Forced to sign indemnity waiver releasing CG from liability even in cases of gross negligence by CG. We camped at Salem Farms Campground in a Motorhome.

Brian Manager, owner at Salem Farms Campground responded to this review

Thank you for your review, we have had several motor homes here (Phaetons) much larger then yours with no issues. The site you had (191) is 50 feet wide and 98 feet long so I don't know where the problem was. The electric if brought to our attention we would have check it with a certified meter, that area has a 400 amp 2 yr old service. The main road is millings and sites and side roads are pea stone, and can be a little dusty espec. seen we haven't have rain in over 16 days. The waiver you refused to sign was a standard wavier in the event you play ball, fall in your campfire etc. NOT the example you gave the staff of cutting a tree down and dropping it on you. The site has gray water drop only small fitting per local health codes. Thank you for choosing Salem Farms Campground and we wish you well in your future camping experiences.

I stayed here again in July with my 2 kids. The staff is very helpful, friendly and the place is very clean. I found sitting at the pool their seasonal people are very welcoming to us non seasonal guest. We DID NOT pay for a single activity except when they played candy bingo. That was fifty cents and they had a ball. We attended their dance with a great energetic DJ on Saturday night and enjoyed some fired dough and ice cream for the kids at the snack bar. We camped at Salem Farms Campground in a Travel Trailer.

I like this campground, I was here twice once in 2014 and recently. I came with my boyfriend and his 2 kids and my one. I spoke with an older gentleman that was cleaning the bathrooms. He said he only does it once a week. I could tell, but we had our own bathroom in the RV,so no big deal I guess. Disappointed there were no activities for kids during the week, I was sure they had them last year. The snack bar is good, the store is well stocked. Worse problem was internet was awful, connection kept dropping, my boyfriend needed to check in he would drive to Dunkin Donuts or McDonald's if he needed to be on awhile. So we will go back only if the summer activities are back and they improve the internet! Bathrooms like I said most people have their own perhaps that is why they don't bother to clean them more, We would gladly pay a nominal fee for decent internet, My boyfriend will check next spring before we return. We found a campground about 10 miles away costs more but at least the internet works and they have activities for kids daily.

(Bathrooms were newer also) We camped at Salem Farms Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Close to Mystic and casinos. Bring your own activities if you have kids.... and be ready to get unplugged most of the time. Or have a large data plan on your phone!

Quiet, family-friendly campground with several activities hosted by campground every weekend (to include hayrides, arts & crafts, DJ dance party, etc.) People are respectful of the noise curfew and the speed limit. Office staff very attentive and helpful. We camped at Salem Farms Campground in a Tent.

Be sure to bring an extension cord since all tent sites share the same electric portal. You will need quarters for the showers.

Thirty years of camping - rate this A+! Grounds & pools well maintained, restrooms spotless. Quiet friendly campground. Grounds, pools, activities were easily accessible to our special needs grandson. Owners very accomodating. Lots of activities for kids and adults. Snack/ice cream bar a hit! Already planning to go back next summer. We camped at Salem Farms Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Mostly seasonals at this campground. Some friendly, most not. Staff is helpful and friendly. Sites are gravel and dusty. Our site was littered with cigarette butts. Our fire pit was right on the road and there is no privacy between sites. Very expensive for what you get. Almost all activities are an additional cost. If you like NASCAR, tattoos and all day drinking you may enjoy this place. If you like privacy, peace and quiet, and relaxed camping you probably won't. We camped at Salem Farms Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Camped here on a weekend. Excellent base camp, close to many area attractions. Staff is very friendly. Escort to site. They loaned me a longer power and cable TV cable. Firewood is delivered to the site. Clean grounds, gravel and grass sites. Pools were very clean, but partially shaded. Activities on the weekends. Nice camp store. I asked for the nearest market, the lady handed me pre-printed directions to a stop-n-shop and a Walmart. My in-laws came for an overnight stay and were allowed to set up a tent on our site. Lots of seasonals here and no sewer. You can drop grey water, but the in-ground drywell in very small and fills quickly. It only accept a small garden hose. They do have a dump station just outside the main entrance. We would definitely consider coming back. We camped at Salem Farms Campground in a Travel Trailer.

My family camped here and found it to be a extremely clean campground. The snack bar was a big hit for us, no need to cook. Then ice cream for desert huge scoop on a cone for under three dollars. The staff are friendly, escort to your site, owners on site working daily. We camped at Salem Farms Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed here four nights. Excellent "base camp". Short drive to New Haven, New London, Groton, Mystic and many other cities. Family owned/operated; very friendly and helpful. Family resort atmosphere. Excellent facilities with ice cream bar and variety of snack foods avail. Large number of seasonal visitors, indicating a satisfied base. We definitely will stay here again.

I would say this campground caters to seasonals mostly. Dead moths and hair on the sinks and the floor in the bathroom, as well as full trash can all day. These were noted even right after they came out from cleaning. No attempt at privacy between sites. Management seems not to care about customer service.

Very nice family owned and run campground. Sites are dirt/gravel and mostly level. We did have a few choices for our 40' MH that were easy to get into. Only 30amp service, but it worked well. Water and grey water hook ups. Honey wagon available twice a week at no additional charge. Water pressure good. Cable TV and Wi-Fi worked well. Lots of activities for children and adults. Two pools, both well maintained. We stayed a month and will be back next year. We camped at Salem Farms Campground in a Motorhome.

This appeared to be good campground for families camping in trailers or pop-ups, but I certainly would not recommend it for anyone in a large Class A motorhome. Although we were told our site was a pull-through, there was no way we could have reached it with a vehicle in tow. We camped at Salem Farms Campground in a Motorhome.

I camped here in June and what a great campground. Family run place, a very friendly escort to your site they make sure you have everything you need. If you need a cord or hose they lend it to you. I did have one probelm while camping here, I believe it was the other reviewer. This older couple cussed like troopers at each other and their dogs and staff. Try this park you will love it. We camped at Salem Farms Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
