This is a state campground with no hookups. It has two separate camping areas about a mile apart. We stayed at the Wolf's Den area for 3 nights, which has large sites, both very grassy and well maintained, with the road and parking areas level and paved. The Mashamoquet camping area is about a mile away, and much more primitive. It would probably not accommodate large campers very well, and seems better suited to tents and maybe small campers. There are seven miles of trails through the park, all very pleasant for hiking, which connect the two camping areas, various rock formations, and also provide access to a swimming pond in the park. (Can also be accessed by road.) All things considered, this is a very quiet and well maintained campground with a friendly staff, and for $11 per night, a very good value. We would gladly stay here again. - Strahwk

Small 24 sites, 11 w water and electric, campground by COE Lake. 1 1/2 hour to Boston. Sites are large, level and wooded. Hosts friendly and helpful. Downsides include no 50 amp electric and no sewer. Dump station is dated and difficult to use. - Donauw

We again enjoyed our stay at West Thompson Lake Campground. Campground is heavily wooded, mostly level, with lots of wooded space between sites which made for good privacy. Our 30 amp W/E hookups were in good working order. Entrance road to campsites moderately hilly but very manageable. Not much has changed since we were here a few years ago except the addition of a new building housing the fresh water tanks for the campground. Camp hosts friendly & professional as always. Sites are about 75' deep with plenty of width. Hosts make rounds at quiet time along with park rangers making routine patrols during the day. With the exception of one camper, found everyone respectful. Bathrooms/showers kept clean and were updated. We enjoyed this campground and would certainly return or recommend this place to anyone. - mdcamping

Very nice quiet park. Small in size but very well maintained. Hosts and staff are friendly and informative. Newer, clean shower building with playground centrally located. Not all sites are level or large enough for big rigs but we were lucky and was able to get around the campground in a 40' motorhome. Two sites with small rustic shelters for tent camping were nice. A lot to do at both the park and local area. Shopping and towns nearby. Would definitely stay here again. - Bavoo60

Very nice military campground. Quiet area with wide sites and clean showers and clean FHU's. Office staff very helpful with local attractions and base information. Call ahead as they do not take reservations. - boomerlee

This is a first come first served military campground. It is not a great campground either. Parking pads are concrete but entrance to site is just dirt, rocks and dead grass. Fire ring was overgrown with weeds and full of trash. Picnic table was useable. Bathhouse is strange especially the shower area. There is a big room in both men and women's restrooms. There is only a long bench for all three showers to use and absolutely no privacy before or after stepping into/out of the shower. The room is quite large and it seems that some sort of privacy could be arranged. The water does not taste great but the utilities (no sewer) worked fine. Verizon cell and hot spot worked well. The campground is not easy to find and we got an unfriendly feeling from the gate guard to the campground staff. There are several commercial business near the campground that were busy through most of the night. This is not up to the usual standards of most military campgrounds. We would not stay here again. - roadking

This park has some real potential. We stopped here for two nights on our way to New Hampshire, so the location was ideal for our route. When you arrive, you will enter the main gate, go through the traffic circle, pass the the gas station where you will turn left. This road will lead right to the campground. To echo what others have said, the camp is treated without a lot of care. We arrived on a Saturday after the office closed and chose a spot. We had to inspect three different sites since the first two were 50 amp service only and we are 30 amp. Sites are back in with water and electric only. We chose site 11 which gave us good TV antenna coverage as well as Verizon wifi. The pad was concrete and level with plenty of room for our 35 ft fifth wheel and truck. The big negative was the trash in the fire pit that seemed to have been there for some time. This could be a really nice campground, it just needs the attention. If passing through we would definitely stay again. - pfogleboch

We stayed here on memorial day weekend. We were a bit disappointed with the lack of activities for a holiday weekend. My children had a great time with bike decorating and the bike parade but, that was about it. There was a craft activity (bring your own craft), line dancing (about 4 people), and a saturday evening dance (I think the same 4 people there) - That was it! The pool was a bit cloudy and very cold. The temp is understandable but, cleanliness is inexcusable. We stayed in the 70's section. Water and electric services are not located in normal positions. We had to go to Walmart and purchase a 30 amp extension cord to reach. The circuit blew a number of times if running AC and microwave. The beach and lake were OK to look at but, I would not let my kids swim in it, nor did they want to as it was very mucky. Another complaint is that there is only one bathroom at the pool/pavilion area. It also contains a shower. Plan on a long wait if you gotta go. If you do go here, consider the safari field. It looked MUCH better but, community fire pits only. I don't see us returning here. - Grafton MA camper

This was an awesome campground. It has very friendly staff and campers. Great sites: get a waterfront one, they are so beautiful. It's very clean everywhere. Has super clean showers and restrooms. Staff was very nice and super accommodating. Would definitely recommend and would love to stay here again! - shilostarr

This was a tough one to review. My rating reflects a comparison to other campgrounds which this is really not. It's a concert venue with some 200 plus seasonal sites and very few (I was told maybe as little as six) sites available for reservation. If you are there when there's not a concert, there's very little to offer by way of amenities/activities. They have a very nice pool and bathhouse and the facilities where clean. The camp store doubles as a gift shop/main entrance on show days and offers virtually nothing as far as supplies go. There is a gas station with a Food Mart adjacent to the property which you can walk to. It has everything (including Subway, Dunkin Donuts) just not a lot of camping supplies. When shows aren't going on you can wander around the venue and have access to a lakefront. They do charge something extra per person and require a $25 refundable deposit for the pool/bathhouse. If you're there for a concert weekend they require a 2 night minimum. They allow you to check out late on Sunday which is nice because they really pack them in. The venue is a great place to see performers up close and they have all the usual concessions. There's plenty of space to wander around and you can still hear the music down by the lakefront. The people who work there and the seasonals who stay there were all very friendly. But be forewarned it is a party atmosphere. Lot's of music and cocktails, and lots of circling around in golf carts. But again, I can't say enough about how friendly people were. - McNamara's Band

The sites are not level and there is no recreation during the week. There is a lake, but there is no recreation on it. I would not camp here again. - har-fl

This campground has a lot of seasonal sites. We stayed in the Nashville area in the front close to the office on huge concrete site that was 30x60. Water, electric and sewer was good. Wi-Fi was strong for access but did not connect to the internet. We have a sprint Aircard and used it instead. This campground caters more to people that want to attend concerts such as Billy Ray Cyrus or Keith Anderson who performed the weekend before we arrived and Charlie Daniels was scheduled to perform the following weekend. If you stay on a weekday, can get in the Nashville sites and have Camp Club USA it isn't a bad place to stay. We would only stay here for a couple of days when passing through. If you stay here say Hi to the gentleman who lives there and loves dogs more than people. - TXBobcat

Canadian Goose excrement littered the campsite. We tried to clean it up with paper towels, but it wasn't enough. We were literally laying in it. The men's bathroom septic was backed up from the time we got there. Excrement on the men's bathroom floor. No place to go except outside. The front reception desk brutally rude. I was sick when I got home with flu symptoms. - Robyn Levesque

Read the previous reviews and can see their point, the bathrooms were terrible. It's a country bumpkin place no doubt. Yet, if you're looking for some quiet time on a lake or quiet country roads the this will do. I'd not tent here but if you are self contained i.e. RV and don't mind using your own facilities then this is a good place.
It's quiet and right on the lake, good place for small kids to catch Sunfish and enjoy the lake, great views of the country and if you cycle then Route 207 is a good route, decent shoulders and challenging hills. Again, if you use your own facilities this is a good place, if you need to use theirs don't come here. - koeka

The Camp Store is an old dingy cement block building with dilapidated furniture, poor game room, and lacks amenities. The owner charges $20 for gate key which they said would be refunded when I checked out. Also charges extra for cable hook up. Owner refused to return gate fee, after discovering a math error. Owner needs every dollar even though I paid for the site in full when I checked in. The site I stayed was muddy with other nearby sites harboring debris attracting insects. This place is not worth staying. The only good things were the lake and leaving this tired run down place! - shasta63

If you're looking for the city dump, this is it. I have never seen a park as trashed as this one.
The handicap ramp has several boards missing and it's not useable.
The swimming pool looks like dismal swamp or maybe an algae experiment for the local high school.
When I checked in there was a styrofoam container on the counter with a fork on top of it. The next morning the container was on the railing outside the office. The trash can in the office was overflowing and there was trash on the floor.
The laundry has two large cages with large birds in them. The floor around them was littered with whatever falls out of the cages.
It's a beautiful location which has been left to deteriorate. It doesn't speak well of the owners however nice they may seem. This gross neglect doesn't happen overnight. - User3255

This place is a real dump with nice, quirky people running it. They don't even weed-wack around the office which is the first thing you see. We couldn't level our rig so we got our exercise running uphill to the bedroom in the back. There is no fire pit and we couldn't reach the sewer in our pull-through without leaving the car on the road. It is really a low end trailer park. There is wifi, but I couldn't access it. I ended up using my personal hotspot on my phone. This was a one night stop so no biggie. - RVerMJ

This place has definitely seen better days. They do have a pool, but it would have to be stifling out before any of us would use it. We camped with two other families. We come here because it's cheap and not too far away from the Woodstock (CT) Agricultural Fair that runs Labor Day Weekend. We don't spend much time at the campground other than to sleep and eat breakfast. Other than that, we're out all day. So it serves it's purpose.
The sites we had were tiered at the back of the campground, so we pretty much had the area all to ourselves. The utilities were rather new and in good condition.
The Owners are a bit odd, but nice people. Propane is a bargain, so it's a good place to fill up if you're low. - grumpah

We stopped here for a couple of nights on our way to Maine. We found this campground a little pricy for what we paid for. We only had an electric/water hook up so the expensive price was without sewer. Our site was on a small hill and took a lot to get it level and didn't achieve a full level. When looking at the map of the sites and you choose your site to reserve you don't realize how unlevel some of the sites are. There were some full hook up sites that looked to be in a field with no shade. The bathrooms were some of the worse bathrooms we have used in all our years of camping. The stalls were small, dirty, and no adjusting your water temperature there was only one temperature. The park did have some nice trails to hike and we found railroad tracks with a tunnel leading underneath the tracks that led to a river. The dump is just like the last reviewer said it's up a large hill that seemed even larger coming down and you're dragging the end of the trailer coming off the hill onto another hill to get out of there. Probably won't return to this park and will find another place to stay if ever come back to this area. - alnal90

This is a decent CT state park campground. The site was spacious and wooded with pretty good privacy. It had a large stone fire ring and a picnic table. The bathrooms were usable but could use a thorough cleaning and fresh paint. Also, the bathrooms had no soap and the sinks were cold water only. The dump station is positioned on top of a hill behind the dumpsters and the road is sloped AWAY from the dump pit, so make sure to bring some boards to raise the low side. There is a small playground and there are two small pools, one that goes to 7 feet deep and a 3-foot deep kiddie pool. The sign on the fence said “Pool Hours 10-4”, we got in the kiddie pool at 2:30 (the big pool was closed and had a cover on it???) and were informed that the pool would be closing at 3:00. I told him that the sign said 4:00, he said on Sundays it closes at 3:00. ??? The campground is bordered by a river that didn’t look very inviting for swimming or fishing, but there was a nice foot path that followed the river. This campground has great potential. If you walk around the outskirts of the campground, you can see a lot of sites that still have the water spigots, electrical boxes and fire rings(some even have concrete pads)that were never renovated, so the are just sitting there overgrown and unused. My biggest complaints with this campground are #1: Radio noise, all types of music can be heard from other sites from 8 AM until well past midnight. Which leads to #2: Lack of any type of rule enforcement by the staff (a group of high school/college aged kids). Only 6 people per site? Yeah right; the site next to us had 4 tents and an EZ-UP with 8-10 people on it. Quiet hours? Yeah right; it’s a radio free-for-all any time of day. Not sure if we will return. - JJZS

Had a nice full hookup site. Pool was nice. Check-in was easy. Great for tents also. Close to river. - stanner17
