29 Parks near Tolland, Connecticut
Oct 2009 - $30.00
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

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

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

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.

One of the nicest parks we have stayed in. Beautiful, clean, family friendly. The only drawback is that most sites have grey water connections only and do not have sewer connections. They do have multiple dump locations and pump out service is available. The park activities include weekend entertainment and bingo. The owners go out of their way to assist customers. We would consider this as a destination park. - essentiallady

Keep in mind the lack of sewer hook ups here. No hook up at all if you opt for the water front sites on the little creek. The open sites without shade in the middle of the park have grey water dump pits using a water hose (not full sewer hose) to hook up. Not having the hookup at our roomy site on the creek, required me to use their laundry facilities which were expensive at 2.50 a load. I refused to feed the quarter machine in the bath house "pay to shower" facility, so our grey water tank filled up quickly. Dump station was convenient however. The owner is very welcoming and friendly, and we also loved the many hummingbirds in the area. - nautifish

Staff is very friendly. Stayed in an open grassy site in a fifth wheel. Shaded sites are available as are some beside the river. Several covered ramadas. The site was compacted, grass, and fairly level. The laundry room was adequate, but at $2.50 each for washer and dryer, cost was high. Bath house was clean, but there is a fee to run the shower. WiFi reception was sporadic and seemed to be a carrier issue and due to severe storms. Nice play fields and a small playground. - Scottsdale RVers

We came opening weekend to take advantage of the trout fishing on the Natchaug river and of course to enjoy camping. One of the reasons why we continue to choose this campground is because of the friendly environment and the enforcement of campground policies. Interior roads had some potholes but nothing to over the top. Our sit hookups were in good working order. Campground is in a flood plain because of the Natchaug river so do expect some sand at most of the sites. We did not try the WiFi but we had a good signal on our Verizon cell phone. Geography at campground is level with open and shaded areas. Most sites, especially the non river sites, have enough space where backing in should not be difficult. Campground is clean and decently maintained. Would certainly return again or recommend this place to anyone. - mdcamping

This is our yearly return visit to Nickerson Park. They were not able to accommodate us with the site we would have liked but they got us a over sized full hookup site which worked out great. Staff professional and friendly. Geography at campground is level with open and shaded areas. Most sites, especially the non river sites, have enough space where backing in and should not be difficult. One change for this year is the old restroom building in the center of the campground has been replace with a new building. Campground is clean and decently maintained. Owner offers worship service at the rec hall every Sunday. Would certainly return again. - mdcamping

Park is secluded with lots of trees. Very peaceful and quiet. Many river sites. The majority of sites are occupied by seasonals but that is generally the case in this part of the country. Roads are dirt/rock as are the sites. With rain it does become muddy and the roads have potholes. Sites are not very level. Sites are large enough and have ample spacing so you do not feel cramped. Wi-Fi is free but is slow most of the time. We really enjoyed the park but they do need to put gravel down on the sites to level them out and fill the potholes on the road. Staff/owner very friendly and helpful. - mcharland

Beautiful campground right on a quaint river. We were here as the trees were turning colors. Owner was super helpful and friendly. We were the last group of campers for the year, as they close the day after Columbus day each year. We pull a 40' fifth wheel. Some of the sites can't accommodate really large rigs. Our back-in site was quite suitable. - dave398rls

We camped here in a fairly large group (7 families) for the Fourth of July, and the campground was completely full! The seasonal folks were extremely friendly! Some in our group had riverside sites and they did a great job keeping our group as close together as possible. Wish there was a bit more grass in the shady sites and that the electrical was more stable. We consistently had brown-outs and lost power several times. All in all, the group decided we would stay here again! - JBaird

We camped here at the end of their season. There were only a few other people camping while we were here but all the other sites were filled with empty seasonal campers which was a little strange to us. It was a nice place and the owners were nice. The kids enjoyed the playground. The stream was nice to see from our site. Could be a little crowded when the campground is full of people. The sites are gravel. The bathrooms desperately need to be updated. - RFamilyCamping

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.
Old Sturbridge Village is next door. - george r

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

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
