This RV parking was enthusiastically recommended by another blogger and was everything they said it was! My husband and I loved it. Granted - this is not a real RV campground - but is a great place to stay if you are looking for a weekend destination. The view from the designated RV lot was spectacular! We were high up and had a delightful breeze and sat outside with our awning extended, reading, eating and just delighting in the view and weather. In the evening we took the convenient shuttle to the casino, had dinner and walked around for several hours. While we relied on only our trailer for its power, the battery and propane were enough for an overnight to make breakfast, lunch; our water tank was full so we had everything we needed. - loringsontheroad

This is a great place to park while going to the casino, especially on a rainy weekend. There is no cost for staying here. It's not a campground, but more a place to park. Call for a permit and security gives you a pass good for seven. It's dry camping, so it's better for short stays. They have a shuttle service to the casino. We camped here in a travel trailer. - ballard01887

For a casino parking lot, they have one of the best! We ended up with a spot over looking the river: a great view. They bend over backwards for those looking for a No Cost alternative to over-nighters and even extended stays of others. Good shuttle service to Casino, and the Casino itself is beautiful. If back this way again, we will stay again. I might add, a much better offering than the park down the road. - acampingfan

Very accommodating owner, easy access to grocery store and interstate. They also had a store that could meet your basic needs as well as a grill/kitchen. There were several seasonal people on site, that wasn't a drawback. They were very friendly as well as helpful. It was like a small community. It was Memorial Day weekend and there were a lot of primitive campers so the owners put us with the seasonal folks. Some of the sites were not completely level...you can make them work. The sites were also large and shady. I would stay again. - kenbarbie

Let me first share the good about this park. It is located on Gardner Lake. The lake offers good fishing, and anything else you can do on the lake. They put down new decking on their docks. Now the bad. The ownership/management only wants your money. They lack business savvy social skills and at time make you feel like you are an inconvenience. As a seasonal camper you are charged for everything. 3 grand for the season. $100 extra if you bring one kayak or $3 per day to launch from their property. The roads are dirt, making park very dusty. The bath houses are gross with spider/cob webs everywhere. Only 3 of the cabins are usable, the rest are condemned. I have not been in one, but looking in they are nasty. The snack bar food is okay but too expensive. The rec hall is filthy, the boat house is run down, the beach is a joke and run down, the sidewalks are all broken up and are a major hazard. (Law suit in the making). The paved areas of the road are also busted up pretty badly. The basket ball court is gravel and there are very limited activities. The ones on the schedule, only about 1/2 are actually done. This is mostly a seasonal place but the ownership/management does not been care about its residents which reflects in the number that have left. They do not have the passion of a normal campground owners and no pride in their facility. If your interest is a place to park and want nothing from the facility, this is a good place. If you are looking for a fun, activity based, safe, clean, and cared for place: you WON'T find it here. Connecticut State Parks offer more for your money. - trooper889

Check in was easy and that's about it. They share Gardnerlake withe the state. Swimming area is a joke, activities are poor, we were placed next to a bunch of drunk seasonals that wouldn't stop until 2:30 in the morning. I told the owners the next day but they didn't seem to care much, they talked to them, then pointed out I was the one that complained. One group apologized, that afternoon, the other did not, and it continued that night. If you want to get drunk all weekend, this place is for you. Not recommended for families, looking for relaxation from it all. - avidcamper123

We have been to this park many times over the past several years and were very disappointed this year with the site conditions. The site we were on was never cleaned before our arrival, and it looked like it may have been that way for the past few campers. There were cigarette buts bottle caps and trash in the fire ring. The grass (weeds) had not been cut or any trimming done in awhile or any raking of the site. We have seen a decline in the maintenance just from last year. We understand it has been dry and the grass has dried up but the weeds haven't, that is no excuse for not trimming.
Our picnic table was missing, we found it on the next site over that our friends were on, so we left it there. This should have been found by staff if they had properly checked the site prior to our arrival.
We never saw any staff out and about around the campground all the time we were there (5 days). It was just an overall disappointment this time. However the campground is in a very good location for visiting the CT shore. Hope they can get their act together because this park has been better than what we found this time. - Dick C

We had not visited this park in about 8 years. We stay here when visiting friends that live in the area. Despite the addition of a (very small) pool and pavilion, this place has gone downhill since our last visit. Two out of three dumpsters were full when we arrived on Tuesday, were never emptied, and were well beyond overflowing when we left on Sunday. No excuse for this. Many branches in need of trimming, on sites and in roadways. Although it has been dry and grass is not really growing, the weeds certainly are! A quick ride through on the mower would take care of this and make the sites look a lot nicer. Security gate was broken/wide open for our entire stay. Digital cable converter boxes are available at the office with a 40 dollar deposit. WiFi was very weak. Interior roads are very dusty. They advertise a midweek special (3 nights for 100 dollars) on their website, I had to ask twice to take advantage of this. Sign out front says Luxury RV Resort, award winning in 2001 and 2005. With some effort on the part of the management, this park could get back to that. - Bisk5000

We camped the last week of July. Easy access off of Route I-95. The roads and sites are gravel, so there is some dust when people drive past. It rained and there was good drainage. The bathrooms were very clean. No A/C in any facility. It costs .25 for a 7 min. shower. The laundry room has 6 washers and 6 dryers. The game room was lacking. No activities for kids.Staff was friendly and helpful. - shar1435

What a wonderful place. Love the fact that it's the exact opposite of one of those big flat paved parking lot cg's. The winding (and hilly) roads add so much charm. The "alphabet" section we were in (site B) has tiered, level, wide, wooded FHU sites. Everybody and everything here is geared for your pleasure. For once I'm not complaining about having ANY tv. Can't wait for the opportunity to go back. - campiflo

We have stayed at Odetah twice this camping season. We enjoyed our stay both times. The sites are a good size and the bathrooms are clean. The check in process was fast and organized. The trolley car is convenient, however both times we were here we had difficulty getting a ride. It seems as though children used this as an activity. The activities for the children were appropriate but the staff running the activities didn't engage and organize things well. The live music was great.
The pool is located in a shady area of the campground which has its benefits. The pool could be larger. It was very hot our 2nd visit and the pool was extremely crowded. The splash pad construction is underway so that will help. The lake was nice. We kayaked and swam on our first trip. The 2nd trip the lake was too low but this obviously was out of the campground's control. The bugs were vicious but again out if the campground's control. Overall very nice campground. - Lck

This is one of the prettiest parks I have ever seen. The staff was great and the site was nice and large. The lake was actually warm for a nice swim. I would love to have spent more time in this park. I would stay here again. - Jerry in Baytown

Nice campground with friendly staff. This is a older park, great entrance road. We didn't camp much, were out all day most days. - FPguy

I am writing this review and sadly I never got to stay at this campground. We came to visit and checked the place out in July. We were looking for someplace to seasonalize our camper for the rest of the year. The campground was nice, they had a game room for the kids and an "adult room" which smelled moldy and looked pretty run down. Their store was terrible but despite that, the place was in pretty good shape and would have done for the rest of the season, until we could get into someplace we loved next year. We talked to the woman behind the counter to see if she had any seasonal sites available at the time. she said they didn't have any that minute but the beginning of August she would have a lot opening up. She asked me to fill out a card with my info on it and she said she would be calling me the beginning of August with the available site numbers. Well, the beginning of August came and went. I called, they said they could not find the card I filled out and retook my info. I requested a call back that day and never got one. So I waited another week and called again. They said they don't have a card for me? So, I gave her the info again, and she said she would call me back. Well, I called again this week and what do you think they told me? They can't find my card! So, they tried to retake my information for the 4th time, but to tell you the truth if they can't keep track of a simple card, I don't think they can possibly run the rest of the campground. So decided I would rather have my camper parked in my driveway than at a campground that was run this inefficiently. - erin1129

The campground needs the office and check in area upgraded, when we got there we went to check in and there is no computer system it is all done on little pieces of paper and then they take you to your site and your hookups where 40' away from your camper so they go back to office and some extension cords and hoses and come back and give them to you we also requested cable and when we got there the site we had did not have cable. The rec hall or barn needed to be cleaned it had bird droppings all over the place and there was a dog there that jumps on the pool tables and ping pong tables. The activitys never start on time. The seasonals are not the friendliest people in the world all they do is drive from site to site on golf carts. We will not be going back there anytime soon. - funtime

Very nice park with a lot of activities for the kids. Kept very clean. Not sure if your an adult without kids this is a great park for you, but if you have kids its a lot of fun. The outback section is nice and more private then the main area. - john55

Family oriented CG with beautiful facilities. My site was right on the river because I camp in a VW Westfalia, and can use a tent site.
On site restaurant is very nice when you don't want to cook. We had torrential rain, and had to break camp with everything soaking wet.
The dance on Saturday night was too loud, and too frantic. Tone it down! - JudoJeff

This is an update to our posting of last year. Since that time, Foxwoods has made changes to their RV parking area. Firsy, it is smaller now that the gas station and convenience stores have been built. These are actually a plus - since we could walk over and get coffee in the morning and gas up without leaving the grounds. That is the only good thing. The worst part is that they now allow buses in the RV area. This means that you are surrounded by buses running continuously with fumes and noise all day and night. It finally gets quiet at 6 am. We stayed for 2 nights like that and couldn't wait to get out of there. I tried to complain to their transportation department but my call got put thru to voicemail and of course, no one ever called me back. Foxwoods has been our preferred casino spot for over 17 years. But no more. I will not go back. Foxwoods is a joke in that area. What a disappoint with Foxwoods! - loringsontheroad

Foxwoods is a great destination spot for an overnight or weekend of dry docking. The resort accommodates RVs of all sizes in a designated parking area, within walking distance of the casinos, although shuttles run 24/7. You will need to check in with security, as most casinos require. Although there is nothing particularly outstanding about their parking area, it is free, the security is good and the casinos offer a lot to do. We've been coming to Foxwoods for over 15 years, always staying at hotels, prior to getting our TT. It is so much nicer not having to rush to get out of the room in the morning; we can sleep in as long as we like now! - loringsontheroad

Easy access for Big Rigs (we have a 45ft + toad)
Very clean showers and bathroom: Having no sewer hook-ups, I took our three children to the shower house daily.
Lots to do for children: Heated pool, playground, mini-golf, and laser tag
Super easy drive to Mystic Seaport
Laundry facility clean and reasonably priced
Pump-out every three nights stayed, but no pump outs on Sunday. We were leaving early Monday and came in on Thursday so we did not get a pump-out.
No middle walkway to shower houses so you have to walk all the way around each row to get to the showers. Easy if its just you, but a pain when you are taking a 1 and 3 year old to the showers.
Overall: We would stay here again if planning on going to Mystic. Several seasonal rigs on site that were extremely well-cared for and maintained. Everyone was very friendly. - RVThatFamily

Easy drive to visit Mystic. Extremely long, 50 amp, pull-thru site. Easily leveled. No shade, however some sites have shade. No sewer, but free pump out wagon every 3 days. Clean CG & friendly, easy check-in. Pull-thru sites park alternating directions, so hook-ups share sides of the RVs (not the same hook-up). Hook-up side is fairly close with enough room for slides, but the picnic side between RVs is quite spacious. Excellent WiFi with plenty of cable channels. Good Verizon service. Fun things for kids to do. We would stay here again. - Gayle E.

We really liked this campground and wanted to score it higher, but because of them not having sewer, they need to make accommodations to the people who don't have big holding tanks. They do pump you out every 3 days for free, but I had to go ask them to do it, some people they automatically did it. They don't have a wash sink for the tent campers and smaller RV's to wash dishes. They need ventilation in the bathrooms, it became very hot in there on warm days. You shouldn't walk through sites, but there is no pathway in the middle to get to the showers which both buildings are on the other side of all the pull throughs. Had to walk a long way around to get to showers. Showers and bathrooms were very clean. Wi-Fi worked pretty well and cable TV worked well. AT&T service was fine. Close to many of the attractions in the area. Pool was nice and they had plenty of chairs. Catered mainly to Class A's and big 5th wheels, but there was a mix of smaller trailers and some tents. Tons of room for the big rigs to maneuver. Sites themselves were pretty deep and the back ins had a lot of room on the sides. Pull throughs were long but smaller on the sides. Small store on site. Would definitely come back again. - acenorm

Great location! Kids loved the area and were able to linkup with other children their age around the camp. Bathrooms were very clean as well as the property itself. Really enjoyed swimming and being able to have a quiet relaxing time with family and friends! Staff was extremely helpful and on demand to help as needed! Love it here. - Ronnied55

First Book Early as you don't want your family to miss out on this great adventure. Strawberry Park Resort is perfect for what I was looking for. I have a 16 year old and five year old grandson. So I needed a mix of activities for each of them. Clean restrooms and showers but could use more of them during the busy times. They have three pools and two hot tubs. Adult only pool and hot tubs. Wading pool for the youngest ones to a huge pool with diving board for the bigger kids. Also which I found invaluable as my eyesight is not as good as it used to be, is that they have plenty of extra eyes to keep a watch on kids... Plus most are young enough the kids love them. They just had a splash pad open up that is great fun. They have so many activities! From live bands, Bingo with approx 300-400 people a night to a hypnotist that is REAL!! Arts and Crafts with many open fields, Baseball, Soccer, Boccie to many to list.
They have golf carts if you're early enough to rent as well. They changed their pet policy so now you can walk your dogs to the safe pet areas for exercise. Just please pick up after them. - Gina Falt

Nice park. Plenty of stuff for the the kids. They do a good job organizing activities. We stayed here over one of the 'Halloween' weekends in October. The sites are tightly packed but nice. Wifi is free for one hour a day. It's fee based after that. There is a huge number of mobile home sites here. I would think of this place more of a mobile home park with some RV and camping spots. With that said, everything is very well kept. We will likely stay here again. - FamilyJ

Great spot (#9), right on the lake so we could fish right from our site. Staff was super friendly, key card access, great country store and beach. Would have liked full sewer hookup at the site, but I understand being on the water gravity is working against you. Lots of activities for our boys, almost like a summer camp. Highly recommend going. Bring your kayak and fishing pole! - Pshaine

Very expensive CG, especially with no sewer hook-up and marginal 30 amp electricity. Do have gray water hook-up. Always walk and check out your site before bringing a rig in. Very few are level enough or large enough for Big Rigs. Even 5th wheels need to do a lot of work to get level. Interior roads poorly maintained and become streams in heavy rain. Staff friendly and helpful, but always a struggle to get a site that works for 40' motor home. They don't allow you to reserve a specific site. Bathrooms and lake area extremely clean and neat. No cable TV, but can get local TV with antenna. Verizon cell and air card work well. Lots of activities in season. Some seasonal sites are not well maintained. Unfortunately not anything better in the area. - TravelingBaggs

Nice park with a nice lake, however, a pool is needed at this park. Park is clean and camp store is very nice. Road is tight for those of us with bigger rigs. My 32' five wheel was difficult. Owner frequently driving around and making sure everything is good. Rumor is that the place is for sale?? - radmad
