Stayed at this campground on our way to Maine. Reservation was for a pull thru site with FHU. The site provided was a pull thru of sorts. It was just a pull over off of the campground road. There was no sewer hookup and the water faucet was quite a distance way. However, it was fine for a night stay over on our way north. The campground appeared to be mostly for seasonal sites. The staff was friendly and showed us our site. We camped at Wilderness Lake Campground & Resort in a Motorhome.

Stayed here two nights while traveling to New Hampshire. Called the day before and was quoted $25 per night for PPA 50 amp, water, no sewer. Upon arrival was told all they had was 30 amp. When I questioned this, they suddenly found a " 50 amp" spot. Turned out it was a corner spot, no gravel, no fire ring and the pedestal had two 30 amp connections. Fortunately I had an adapter to turn two thirty's into a fifty so I made it work but location wise, this has to be one of the worst spots in the park. The park is full of seasonals but they are well kept and clean. There is a lake and things to do. Roads are paved or gravel. For a discounted rate of $35 a night I expected more and felt like I was misled. I won't be back and would not recommend to this to a friend. We camped at Wilderness Lake Campground & Resort in a Motorhome.

Clean quiet rustic setting. Friendly helpful staff. 30 amp in the old section near the lake. 50 amp on the hill. Canoes available at no additional cost to campers. No license required to fish, artificial bait only, catch and release. Owner's daughter was greeter at check-in. Owner showed us 2 sites on the hill with 50 amp and 1 site with 30 amp near the lake. We chose the 30 amp. TV reception would be better on some of the hill sites because the park is heavily wooded. We received 12 broadcast channels near the lake. Sites are grassy with gravel entry roads. I had a problem with my car. The owner had an employee take me to town to get necessary parts. I will return.

We are new to RV camping and found the people in the office to be more than helpful. We had a back-in site and did fine with the staff's help. Restrooms were clean when we arrived and through most of the evening, but needed a little attention by very early morning. We camped at Wilderness Lake Campground & Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Nice rural woodsy place, and management was very helpful. But no cable, sewer or more than 30 amps. Even satellite wouldn't work; too many tall trees. Overpriced for the services available. We camped at Wilderness Lake Campground & Resort in a Motorhome.

We did not actually stay at this park; had reservation & did not accept site after arrival. Reserved this in April & owner was not truthful as to what was available for sites. OBTW,It is cash only,no CC(we were aware of that) Sent in $100 deposit by check. On arrival a young man(teenager) checked us in and thought we had a pop up which we clearly indicated on reservation a 31 ft Class C/towing. Took us to a site that was uphill/grass/rocky and no sewer & were told to empty our grey tank on the ground.....& they would pump out the black.(environmentalists have at it:) We said this would not work for us & got our check back & asked about deposit and were given $50 back (which was OK w/us) FYI:The rates were $50 & told $25 passport rate but July 4th would be $110. Why bother w/passport?? Liars can figure and figures can lie. I will say the lake looked nice but the rest definitely poor. Would not recommend.

Bathrooms just OK (being generous here). Showers share a dressing area. Hookups just OK. A quiet night; lots of morning birds and a scenic pond. Our Verizon Mi-Fi was spotty at best. Entry road was terrible. All dirt roads and sites. We camped at Wilderness Lake Campground & Resort in a Motorhome.

We left our seasonal campground after approximately 8 years to come to Wilderness Lake. We camped here a couple of times when we first got our camper and should have picked this as our seasonal location. We are coming back as we have personally noticed that the campground has made constant improvements and additions since we were here last and the management completes their improvement and expansion goals while keeping the grounds beautiful and treating their guests like we matter. They provide activities, keep the grounds and building clean, and have handicap access to all buildings. Great place, great people! We camped at Wilderness Lake Campground & Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Rate reflects weekly rate with PPA. Quiet park, marginal AT&T, no sewer, but allowed grey water on ground. Good electricity and good water pressure, was surprised by the owner emptying my tanks, thought I'd have to use the dump station. We have stayed here several times while visiting my brother in S. Windsor. Would stay again. We camped at Wilderness Lake Campground & Resort in a Motorhome.

Very nice campground that is away from everything...no freeway noise. Has a nice large lake with little sand area for kids to swim. We stayed here two weeks and really enjoyed it. Staff was friendly and helpful. Weekends were crowded, but okay. The little store on site has a few necessities, but not big. Showers and toilets by the office were old and with everyone using just 3, they were always messy. They do not have sewer hookup or a dump station...they come around campground every Monday and drain everyone's unit if they want it. We stayed in a 36 ft motorhome towing a vehicle and stayed in a pull through site. We would recommend this campground. We camped at Wilderness Lake Campground & Resort in a Motorhome.

Stayed one night here.  Paid $25 cash, they honored a Good Sams card. It's a slow time and there were sites near the small lake.  Owner was helpful and seems to be trying to improve conditions noted in previous reviews.  There aren't many amenities but if camping is all you want this is pretty good.  I'd return for more days.

This is not an RV park. It is a campground! Lots of family friendly activities. The campground would be OK if you have a small camper or trailer, but do not come here with a big rig. The roads in the park are all gravel and hills. There is water and electric only at the sites. They are not really designated as sites, just park on the grass or gravel and hook-up. Our motorhome is 38' and I bet if you have anything longer than 34', the dump station will be hard to get to without backing out. So you can forget about a pull through site! When asked, he said to use the dump station at I-84 westbound. Sorry but we are going East. We will not be back here again. It was way over priced at $25 for PA discount. Normal rate is $50 a night.

"Lake" is a small reservoir and a bit of hum from the interstate but pretty location, nice beach, friendly helpful staff. Dump closed, sounded like that was a common state. We camped at Wilderness Lake Campground & Resort in a Motorhome.

We were looking for a place to stop for one night on our trek south and don't generally expect much from campgrounds convenient to the interstates. Wow! What a pleasant surprise. This campground is beautifully rustic with sites along the lake. The owners were very nice and told us we could park sideways along the lake (taking up 2 sites) because their weekend crowd wasn't expected until the next day. The store had all the essentials. When we were leaving we did the unthinkable. For the first time in 25 years of RVing we drove off with the awning down and whacked it on a tree. The owner spent an hour helping us get the awning temporarily wired into place so we could leave. He couldn't have been nicer. Yes, some of the roads need some gravel, but sometimes there are more important items to consider when booking a site. This will be our "go to" campground on our trips north and south. We camped at Wilderness Lake Campground & Resort in a Motorhome.

We stayed here in a 40 footer with 50 amp, water but no sewer. The hosts/owners are very friendly. Loved the place, our only gripe is that the 2/10 mile dirt road coming in to the park off Village Top Rd needs some attention. Has 2 large ruts that shook the rig as we slowly passed over them, fill with some gravel and all will be well. The $25 dollar rate is Passport America. We stayed here a week and will definitely be back next summer. We camped at Wilderness Lake Campground & Resort in a Motorhome.
