This is a fine place for an overnight. The pool and bathrooms make up for all factors that could be negative. Positive: pool is lovely and clean, bathrooms are new and clean, staff is very very friendly, laundry room is clean and new, quiet Negatives: not convenient to get to, lots of dirt as it looks like they are trying with the grass but no results quite yet, $50 seems a little high for a little parking spot in the dirt We camped at Branch Brook Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Looks like a lot of residents here perhaps? Call ahead to reserve a site because it is putzy to get there and you wouldn't want to not get one after winding through town.

Maybe a 6.5 right now but I gave the campground a 7 for direction. This is a park in transition. New owners purchased the campground in Feburary of '18 and they have been making major improvements. Even in the week we were here we saw major changes. There is a lot of landscaping and hardscaping going on. The new shower/laundry building is very nice. WiFi is available at the sites if not super fast. Some things like wood decks and stairs are pretty rough but they are on the list to be repaired or replaced. The store is new but there is not much inventory yet. Electricity was an extra metered charge. Sites are pretty close but everybody was very friendly and considerate and we are pretty social anyway. The staff was excellent. There was a mixup in our paperwork and we arrived after the office closed. Ten minutes after calling the posted emergency number someone was there to check us in. There is a pretty busy road adjacent to the campground so traffic noise is noticeable. While not what we would consider a "destination ", we would not hesitate to stay here again when in the area. We camped at Branch Brook Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Thomaston town center was cute and there is a state park across the street. We were in the area for family so we did not have time to really explore the area.

A very accommodating RV Park. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The owner went out of her way to make sure we had a spot. Fairly easy to get to from the interstate. We had a back in which was easy to get to with a small patio on the side and picnic table. Very clean quiet little Park. Base price is $48 a night. But if you run your air conditioner it's $3 add a extra and table is $2 a day extra. It was worth it to have a nice quiet day. We camped at Branch Brook Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Campground is very clean and well managed. We stayed for 3 nights and had no complaints. Dog friendly campgrounds. Pool was nice size and kept sparkling clean. My wife, grandaughter and I had a great time. I would recommend this campsite to anyone :) We camped at Branch Brook Campground in a Motorhome.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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". We camped at Branch Brook Campground in a Motorhome.

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.
