Nice shaded campground. It's obviously an older park. Lots of trees, so many trees that on many sites you cannot fit an RV, only a pop up or tent that can be maneuvered around the trees. In fact due to location of some trees and bushes on our reserved site, our 41' Fifth Wheel did not fit even though the site was listed as 45' in length. We got lucky and found an open site and office staff allowed us to move. We had to park on an angle to fit and used long cord to reach our electric box.

Not a lot of space between campsites. We had to put our picnic table and dining canopy behind our RV as there was no room between campsites. We stayed in the B Loop. The bathhouse was very clean, although it could use some updating. Had to stoop to fit under the shower head and the water only stays on for approximately 11 seconds at a time. Had to keep pushing the button while stooping down. A little tricky!

Gray water dump station at each bathhouse. Two dump stations available when exiting the park.

The park is centrally located to the beaches so we were able to make day trips to the different beaches. Also located near lots of antique stores and flea markets. At the park, take the pontoon boat tour for some history of the park. The campground offers free bicycles for you to use. Well maintained trails for hiking, biking and horseback riding. Campground staff were very nice and very accommodating. We walked around making note of campsites we would fit in for future reference, as were several other people. We will definitely go back. We camped at Trap Pond State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

State Park with lots of activities. Fishing, free bike rentals, trails, great kayaking, nature center, row boat and pedal boat rentals. Check with the nature center for pontoon boat tours. $6.00 very reasonable for one hour informative tour.

Large well spaced sites , on dirt and pine needles. Older bathhouse but clean. Quiet and uncrowded during our weekday stay. We camped at Trap Pond State Park in a Motorhome.

We have camped here many times. Always enjoyed our time here. This time we were a little creeped out by the guy riding around on a golf cart. He was tattooed on arms, neck and face. I guess he was a host. He rode around like he was casing the place. Bath houses were clean, pond was beautifull as usual. The pontoon boat ride done by the park naturalist is a must do for visitors. We camped at Trap Pond State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Very good shade, pull-through (Loop D) was fine for my 30' motorhome; however, I saw the longer RVs struggling with the tight spaces between trees. Other loops (A-C) were more accommodating for the longer RVs; however, the electrical and water services were installed so that adjoining spaces shared a common water facet and the electric boxes were back to back. Swimming is not allowed in the pond; however, can boat and kayak. The conditions for bicycling were excellent within the park and the surrounding state and county roads (wide shoulders both directions). Bathrooms need updating. Laundry was $1.50 per load for each of the washers and dryers. We camped at Trap Pond State Park in a Motorhome.

Nice state park. Our site was fairly level and was a pull through with excellent W/E service. GPS directions on our Rand were a little sketchy both going and coming. Staff was friendly and helpful. We camped at Trap Pond State Park in a Motorhome.

Good services, nicely laid out park. Loop D is the only loop allowing pull-throughs, but it doesn't have it's own shower house as the others do. Would stay again. Price reflects 10% Golden Age Pass Discount. We camped at Trap Pond State Park in a Truck Camper.

Stayed here over Labor Day weekend and every site in the entire park was reserved. Water pressure was amazing, although the water had a bad taste to it and was kind of cloudy looking. 50 AMP power was fine and the bath house, although dated, was always being cleaned. It rained a lot over the weekend and lots of sand was tracked into the bath houses. The pond was very low on water but was still able to go out in a boat. You have to check each site to see if you will fit, cause some of them have trees all over. No sewer sites at all, but 2 dump stations at the exit. We camped at Trap Pond State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

A very woodsie campground and well maintained. Sites are close together and on the small size but fine on the weekdays. Weekends are a bit noisy. Would stay here again. We camped at Trap Pond State Park in a Motorhome.

This was our second stay at Trap Pond. Stayed on B Loop, but would prefer to stay on D Loop. Our site had trees that prevented us from fully extending our awning. Bathrooms always clean. Park is very safe. Lots to do, but we prefer to do a whole lot of nothing when we camp. Full hookups would be nice, but definitely worth settling for W/E. Easter is a fun time to stay here as well as Halloween, but good luck getting in on Halloween weekend. Reservations need to be made in March. We camped at Trap Pond State Park in a Motorhome.

This was a great experience for overnight on our trip. Easy access to the park but if you are using trip routing software, use Highway 24, not Highway 30. Some of the turns inside the park looked tight for my 38 foot fiver, but I had no problems navigating around the various loops looking for a site. My only gripe is the reservation system. When we checked in with no reservations, we were told to pick a site without a yellow reservations tab on the post and come back to the office and let them know which site we selected. We were forced to bypass several "reserved" sites that would have been easy to get into, finally ending up in one that required backing to within 3 inches of a fallen tree stump with 3 inches clearance on each side for the slides. Most of the "reserved" sites were still empty the following morning. We had good local television, 3G data and cell phone service here. The sites are not cramped, but the trees make parking interesting. We camped at Trap Pond State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

$28 for an out of state camper depending if you get the senior or golden age discount. This campground is in the pines with over 142 sites on the north shore of Trap Pond. The whole park is huge with public areas for group and family get together, volleyball courts, hiking, biking, boating and places for just sitting and enjoying the water fall and geese. There are cabins and yurts for rent some facing the water and a great tenting site. There are two walk in tent sites on an island for a group or family that was beautiful and so private with areas to put in a kayak or canoe. Four loops are for tent and RV camping with water and electricity under the pines. One loop D has pull through sites but all the sites are on pine needles not paved spots. We enjoy that especially with the nice smell of the pine trees. The ranger check-in cabin was a log cabin with a store in it – very cute. The rangers were very nice and helpful. We would definitely come back to camp here. We camped at Trap Pond State Park in a Motorhome.

We camp here routinely with our two boys! Where else can you camp for $24/night as an in stater? We try to stay next to the playground, pavilion and bath house. We walk less then 200 feet down a path to the vinyl dock to fish. It is very laid back, very serene and not a lot of extras. The bathrooms are older but always clean! We have never once, in over a dozen trips had any problems with staff being rude on our sites. We camped at Trap Pond State Park in a Tent Trailer.

Very nice state park campground. Only down side is the pull-thrus. Unless you really no how to manuever large trees and tight spots, request a back-in. Very nice bike trail and many other great state park type activities. We camped at Trap Pond State Park in a Travel Trailer.
