The owner of this campground is a wonderful lady! She made us feel like we were family during our visit to Mineral Springs. We loved the large property and took some beautiful walks around the campground. We didn't like all of the seasonal campsites--some end up looking a little dumpy in our opinion. We also felt like the campground as a whole was a little rundown and needed some fresh attention. Though we didn't go into the bathhouse, we agreed that we probably wouldn't want to because it looked so old. With that said, the kindness of the campground owner made our family feel so welcomed and we left our stay with very happy family memories. - User2536

Not recommended. Owners were rude and tried to overcharge. Cash only and no receipt given. Would never go there again. - sandy lee b

We stayed here for one night while pulling the 5th wheel back home. Mostly seasonals but a lot of open sites. The pull thru sites were a little narrow and small but you could park in the field (water and electric only on the field). This is a old school family campground..no thrills. They take cash and check only. It is a little off the highway so it is not easy off, easy on. We wanted to give it a try..and we did. - scrowba

We recently spent 9 nights here while visiting family in the area. There are a number of things that make this place a great campground. First, they honor Passport America any day of the week, which is awesome, because it made our stay incredibly affordable. Second, the folks that work there are really nice. They were friendly, helpful, and obviously interested in making sure their guests were taken care of. Third, the sites were well spaced, heavily treed (which we like) and there was a nice lake on the property.
There are a lot of seasonals throughout the campground, but most sites were well kept. The majority of transient folks seem to only stop for a night or two on their way elsewhere. We basically had our whole area to ourselves for a couple days.
The only minor dings are that there is no sewer service available at the sites. They do have a dump station, but it won't easily fit big rigs like ours. For that they have a weekly honey wagon service. The guy was nice, but there were some equipment problems during the dump, and lets just say, it was kinda gross. The other ding for us is the showers. While they were clean, there was no private area to change outside the shower room. It was just one small shower area. I'm not crazy about changing in front of people or leaving my bag out there or whatever else. It would be great if they improved their shower facilities a bit.
Anyway, these are minor dings. Overall, we were very happy with our experience there and will definitely be back in the future. If you're just looking for a quick place to stop for a night or two on your way through New England, and if you have PA, it is really pretty perfect. - LGRV

Rustic and friendly. Very helpful management. Close to I-84. Lots are gravel and fairly tight to enter/exit. Lovely lake. Open early and late in season for snowbirds. Will stay again. - pwaygood

Owner met us next to the office, asked what type of spot and pointed to one, "Will that be OK? Get set up and then we will finish the check in process." Asked for fire wood, brought way more than I was quoted and paid. Excellent service and would come back. - Jack&Wanda

Way off the Interstate transiting hilly, curvy and narrow roads. We stayed hooked up in a back in spot in upper field. Nice country setting. Even though quite a ways from interstate we will stay again if in the area. Moose motif is fun for the kids. - KilaH

Narrow, hilly, curvy road to park. Back-in grassy site was too slanted to allow us to level without taking wheels off the ground. Utility connections were convenient, water pressure was fair, Verizon cell service was good. - jbrucemagon

We stopped here on our trip north to Maine. It was a wonderful place to stay for an evening after a day of traveling. We were in a grassy field where we were able to pull in level and stay hooked up for the night. The campground had a pool but we were unable to use it due to thunder in the area. They had a miniature golf course on grounds that the kids enjoyed playing. In the area where you check in there was a piano that the kids also enjoyed playing, toys for little kids, books to read, games to play and downstairs was a gameroom with a pool table and various arcade games. The bathrooms were clean. We will stop here again when we travel this way. - alnal90

We spent two nights here just as the park was closing for the winter. Services were being shut-down, but the owners welcomed us and were very helpful. It is a lovely site along a quiet, country road in rural Mass. It has lots of facilities and looks like a real "family-friendly" campground.

Level grassy, wide-open site, good electricity and water. A little farther from Old Sturbridge Village than we thought. - Upstater

The comments below are taken from a posting years ago but reflect current conditions very well. In fact most of the 16 previous posts are generally accurate. I feel the last postings from 2013 have a bit of negativity this facility does not deserve. It is a very nice place to stay. We observed large rallies in the safari area while here and they seemed to have a great time.
We stayed in Oak Haven for a month while in Massachusetts. We found Oak Haven's staff and owners to be very friendly and very accommodating. We were in the seasonal area of the park instead of in the sunny wide open grassy field area. The pool was the cleanest I have ever seen. The plantings were eye appealing. The grounds were well manicured. The roads were narrow with dirt and gravel surface and they kept washing out with all of the rain, but they were quickly repaired. There were many seasonals but all of them were friendly and helpful. I will stay here again next time we are in the area. - User2564

This is a mostly seasonal park with many old run-down units. The access roads within the park are in awful shape with potholes and overhanging branches. They need to do better with making people pick up after their dogs. Many remains lying about. You must travel through several residential neighborhoods before reaching park. The literature says it is big rig friendly, but we do not agree. We will not stay here again. - birdlady4810

This campground has definitely changed for the better since the last review that was left in 2003. My husband and I (and our cats) really enjoyed this campground and we highly recommend it. We've been to many campgrounds and this is one of our favorites. It is in a very nice neighborhood in Tolland, CT. We ended up staying for much longer than we had originally planned. When you first pull into the campground the sites are out of view. Beyond the office you will drive down a lovely pine tree-lined road beside a small lake- beautiful setting. One of the owners was frequently, deligently attending to the upkeep of this lake (which allows swimming). There is a great selection of wooded or open sites. For the children there is ball field, playground, rec hall (with video games, pool tables and more) and the lake. They also have propane available and a small general store. Furthermore, the restrooms and grounds were always clean. We saw a maintenance man at the restrooms everyday as well as someone attending to the grounds. The staff and owners were so friendly. They truly went above and beyond- great people. Definitely give this one a try! - bandh

Widely separated, roomy, level, heavily wooded, gravel sites. Very good power, water pressure, and 24 channel cable. A few OTA TV channels available including PBS which is not on the cable. Usable WiFi for email and web searches except for high use times on the weekend when service is available but slowed down. Exceptionally friendly and helpful service by the staff. I am partially disabled and the staff helped me unhook my toad, guided me to my site, and helped with the hook up. I saw them also help other campers when they arrived. Much more helpful than I have experienced in most parks. There are sufficient available sites for transients, but also many long term residents. - Travlin Tarheel

This is a great campground. It is not run by a mega campground group like most places are getting to be. It's a family of good people who know you by name. The park is always clean, the staff is always helpful. I have had sites in every area of this campground and don't have a single complaint. They load their holiday weekends with lots of activities for children and adults all around great campground. - gsull

It is a nice campground. Staff was nice. But some words are in order. Do not let your GPS bring you in through Dean Pond Road. The GPS address stops about 1/2 mile short and now you are in the deep woods scratching your head on a road that you wish you would not have been on. In the overnight Safari "pull by" field there is only 30 amp and water. The field is actually a series of back-ins but it is converted by allowing sideways camping across two sites. There is no usable WiFi. Verizon allowed emergency calls only. There is no TV reception. - dragonsix

Large park with MANY amenities (boat rentals, pet beach, mini golf, endless kid's activities, food bar) and a helpful, friendly staff. Cons: sites are very close and cluttered. There are no tent-specific sites, so you may end up tenting in between large RVs like we did. On the plus side, though, every site has water and electric. Unfortunately, while we were there the bathroom near us had only 2 toilets working (out of 5), and the store ran out of ice. Campers were respectful of the speed limit, but the noise curfew was definitely not enforced. - LMurphy

We stayed here with a group of 14 families.
The pavilion and the nearby fire pit was perfect for our group events..
Major upgrades are in progress for the rally area.
We would definitely camp here again! - Ed Smith

I would definitely agree with the other reviews about the bathrooms. They are disgusting We arrived on a Thursday afternoon and they were not clean at all nor were they touched all weekend. The game room was just as dirty. The campground itself is somewhat pleasant but it gets very crowded on the weekends and the transient sites are very close together. They did accommodate us with an empty seasonal site that was a decent size but far away from all amenities. The pool was nice but way overcrowded and the kids did enjoy the fishing pond. Another big negative was on Sunday morning when the water stopped working. I was told this happens on busy weekends. Apparently the well water tank runs low. This made it very difficult to close down the camper and get everyone ready to leave. The campground claims they are the best deal in Ct. but I would rather pay a few dollars more for clean bathrooms and a well system that can keep up. We won't be returning. - Chuck Ct.

We came to the area to visit the Brimfield Outdoor Antique and Flea Market nearby. Beautiful area.
We had a nice long pull-thru, roomy enough for our 42' motorhome and tow car. Great drainage, it rained our first night, hard and long, yet the ground was dry in the morning.
Keep in mind there's not much shopping or places to eat in the immediate area. Wifi was very slow. Utilities all worked well. - ScottV

This is an older park, laid out in a seemingly haphazard manner, not necessarily a bad thing, as the sites seemed more spread out than the norm. We were in a pull-through, but had lots of space around us, and so did most of the other sites we saw. The interior roads are rough, perhaps to keep everybody's speed down to 5 mph? The country roads leading up to the campground are very winding and dark at night! Our only real negative comment is that on Saturday night the campground had a big party and blocked off one of the roads within the campground. We returned on a dark and rainy night and got a little lost driving back to our site! No big deal, but it was a bit frustrating. Our site was hard packed gravel and very level. We were shaded by tall trees most of the day. We would come back here again. - dbcordello

Well maintained, clean, quiet campground. The majority of the sites are seasonal, beautifully landscaped and treed. Sites for transients are graveled, level, near bathrooms, with less shade and mostly pull-thrus. Bathrooms were immaculate; showers were coin-operated. No cable or OTA television. Wi-Fi did not reach to our site but our Verizon hot-spot worked fine. Laundry room was small but well equipped with four high efficiency washers and three dryers, one of which was larger commercial size. LOTS of children's activities, including one of the largest playgrounds I've seen in a campground this size - with soft sand for ground cover. Swimming pool was pristine. There is man-made swimming/fishing pond with a center aeration fountain surrounded by sandy beaches and some shade and seating. - Mom_of_Two

Stayed here for 2 months, July, August. Campground is deep wooded but sites are clean and accessible. Owners are on site and ready to help with anything. plenty of trails to walk, ponds & lakes to fish and enjoy. Lots of permanent residents but all are friendly. - OutbackTrekers

We stayed here for one night while traveling I-95. The staff were very helpful and friendly and had no problems accommodating us without a reservation. The park caters mostly to seasonal campers, who occupy about 3/4 of the sites. Most of the sites were well treed, and the park was very quiet and dark, making for a great sleep. The downside of the wooded sites were some very tricky corners, and backing in my 34' RV was a challenge. Once in, the site was big enough to stay hooked up for the night. Nice. Why a 7? Some, but not all, of the units in the seasonal sites are in disrepair, which always detracts for us. No sewer is available, and there is a fee to use the dump unless you stay two nights. Water is available, but only through a garden hose sized connection. The WiFi isn't provided by the park, it is provided by a few kind seasonal campers who open their network to others. It worked well, but seemed a bit weird, as this seems to be the camp's chosen method to provide WiFi. Finally, our site was busy with mosquitoes and deer flies, but that's nature. - bigdipper

Price reflects ROD membership. Campground was very easy to find. There still had weekend activities (potluck, etc.) even late in the season. The pool was open but very cold. They had a playground and other outside activities. This is a standard "parking lot" style campground. However, they can manage big rigs; but only a few of the sites will work for large RVs. Very tight getting into site-but it was workable. It was nice they had a parking area for the truck and the jeep, so we didn't need to keep those on our site. Gravel roads through the campground. Sites are level. Each site had a picnic table and fire ring. Good Verizon coverage. Spotty DirecTV satellite. Nice little campground. I would stay here again; just make sure to understand campground size; but no hesitations otherwise. - GLPColorado
