We stayed here while on our way to MA. The owner was very nice, and the campground served its purpose. I would not spend more than 1 night here, but to stop on the way somewhere: it's perfect. We camped at Branch Brook Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Fees, fees, fees. The new trend in campgrounds, fees for everything. At $43.50/night for 30amp FHU one would think that would include the amenities but it doesn't. If you want 50amp it's extra, want to use your A/C it's extra, cable is extra unless you staying awhile. WIFI is a hotspot and not usable at the site. Entry/exit driveway very tight. Owners are very nice but the fees detract from the overall experience. Cash only, no credit cards. We camped at Branch Brook Campground in a Motorhome.

Park is scruffy & definitely in need of some TLC, but folks were very nice & fellow campers as well. Seems like only 2 pull thrus. Good stop over being only 10 minutes from I84.

Overpriced for this small park & charged 3. For air conditioning. We camped at Branch Brook Campground in a Motorhome.

Hard to find the park with narrow steep interior gravel roads. Primarily permanent people and no upkeep on the park. Buildings are in need of repairs and park is weed infested. I assume they are the only park in the area. Would not stay there again. We camped at Branch Brook Campground in a Travel Trailer.

One night stay and not much to do in town. After 3 weeks of travel this park was the most expensive and an eye sore

Small park. Workers very nice. Gravel rock sites a bit to deal with as rocks get in RV. Biggest complaint is that there are seasonal residents by the pool area who feel it is OK to let all their dogs run freely and do not pick up after them. This would stop me from going back to this park. We camped at Branch Brook Campground in a Motorhome.

We enjoy our time at Branch Brook. The staff are always pleasant and helpful and the campers are all so friendly and fun filled. We particularly liked that the camp rules were enforced for everyone, which made for a very peaceful stay. We will be back. We camped at Branch Brook Campground in a Motorhome.

Litchfield County is loaded with attractions...too many to list here. Also, the most beautiful part of CT.

The rating here might vary depending on the site you get. The ones "out back" are able to get satellite coverage, they're 50 amp, and quiet. The sites closer to the front entrance are noisy (road noise), mostly 30 amp, and are pretty much shaded. It's not a bad campground. It just depends on which site you get. If you haven't been here before, ask for a site in 'the back'. Make a reservation to get one of those sites. We camped at Branch Brook Campground in a Motorhome.

Clean park. Grassy sites. Unpaved roadways. We arrived after dark, the narrow driveway entrance looked forbidding. We made it in without incident. They had left a park map for us showing our assigned site as well as pull-throughs that we could use for the night. Their sign at the entrance is easy to miss even during the day. Our site was wide enough to park on a diagonal to the road as we could not fit when perpendicular to the road. Tree branches at the rear of the site hung down on the coach. We could receive no TV from our site. The park was heavily used by seasonals who use the park as their summer home. We camped at Branch Brook Campground in a Motorhome.

Rate reflects the monthly rate. We stayed here while visiting our son who lives nearby. Most sites have lots of shade, so if you want to use your satellite make sure you let them know. Very quiet at night and the pool was always clean, as were the laundry facilities. The owners were very nice and helpful. We will stay here again while visiting our son.

I was elated to find such a nice, quiet campground with all of the amenities so close to my home town, Bristol. While speaking with the upbeat, and very friendly owners prior to check-in, I felt warmly welcomed and confident that our stay here would be a pleasurable one. It was nice that the campground owners really treat their guests like family anticipating your every need and answering all of my questions. The owner even helped me park the camper since I have some trouble with that sort of thing. Backing it up is not my strong suit. After finding the perfect site for my family's needs, we enjoyed one of the nicest camping experiences ever. I only wish we could have stayed longer. The colorful flowers by the office and all around the pool area were full and vibrant and a such a lovely touch. There is even a quaint little sitting area by the office where we checked our email. The camp grounds were well maintained, and the bathrooms very clean and smelled fresh. I would highly recommend this campground as a terrific place to come relax and enjoy the outdoors. My family and I are looking forward to the next time we can visit this fun vacation spot as we have deemed it one of our new favorite places to stay. Kudos to the campground owners for taking such good care of us. We camped at Branch Brook Campground in a Motorhome.

The hostess was pleasant and helpful. Story goes she inherited the property from relatives. Been in the family a long time. Our site backed up to the stream. Very pretty. What was obvious is this campground has seen better days. It's been a long time since any improvements have been made. There doesn't seem to be any "pride in ownership".

First time here. Very satisfied with facilities. As for the "grump", I think the owner runs a tight ship. I've got no problem with that. It was quiet and great for our family. All utilities worked well. Bathrooms were clean. Sites were large, some shaded and some in sun. We camped at Branch Brook Campground in a Tent Trailer.

Not all sites have Cable TV. Sites are level in grass. Roads are gravel. Entrance and exits from the park are narrow. Easy to miss the entrance when driving down the road. Our site had all the hookups in the rear of the site, so it was important to park correctly for the sewer hose to reach. Park borders a state park. There is a brook that runs besides the park and the park is connected to a trail that follows the brook. I would stay here again, if I were in the area. Cash only.

Considering the limited possibilities in around this part of CT, this is a good campground. It is clean and well kept. The owners are friendly and do what they can to accommodate you. We stayed in the "satellite reception" area. I wasn't using satellite, but I had enough of trees. So this spot was nice. Many site are covered with trees. The sites are sand/gravel/grass. Since I stayed in the satellite area I did not have cable. We will go back. We camped at Branch Brook Campground in a Motorhome.

Our site was level and somewhat shady. There was poison ivy right at the edge: "3 leaves, let it be." Sure they have Wi-Fi, but you have to walk up to the office to use it. They claim they offer Cable TV. Our site had no coax hookup. You have to make sure your does, if you want it. The main thing about this park is the woman who runs it. When I mentioned Branch Brook to my friends in central CT, they all knew of the woman. She has the well-deserved reputation as a grump. She hollered at us. She was demeaning to a guest who drove in to visit. The facilities are okay. We won't go back, mainly because of the grinch at the front gate. We camped at Branch Brook Campground in a Motorhome.
