The layout of this campground has changed do to Hurricane Irene. The swimming hole that was at least 6' deep last year is only about 3'. We couldn't believe the damage that was done. A lot of the sites near the river are carry in, carry out. Sites 1 through 12 have been changed to group sites 2 through 4. I don't know why this is, as they still look like individual sites. We still really enjoyed our stay and hope to be back next year. Two of my children and I did the Zoar Zipline and had a ball. It's expensive but was worth it to see their faces. Better than an amusement park if your into the outdoors. Helpful hint, the showers in the camping area have a button that constantly needs to be held to get water, but the showers by the cabins has a regular hot/cold lever with constant flow. - B. P.

My family loved this campground. Our site was clean and level for our camper. Showers were kind of awkward with a push button that had to be held all the time that you wanted water. The swimming hole was a lot of fun for the kids. We went tubing down the Deerfield river near by which was really cool. We will definetally go back again. The dump station was working when we left. - B. P. Donelan

Beautiful natural setting: stayed here 3 days while exploring northwestern Massachusetts. Lots of notices about bear activity in the area and bear boxes for storing food: but we didn't see any bears. Some sites are more level than others. Bathrooms are old but clean. The showers need work, pitted concrete floor and the water mechanism is awkward. The dump station was not available for use when we were here. It was awaiting repair and apparently had been for some time. - liz&denis

We have stayed here twice so far. This is our campground when traveling this way. Super efficient check in. Very clean sites. Nice laundry, camp store. Home made doughnuts. - eliterror

Easy in and out. Good hook ups. Fair number of sewer sites. Have rabies certificate for dogs ready when you register. Rules enforced which is a good thing. Good Verizon service. Full timers/seasonal have their own area. Nice little camp store. Could use a few garbage cans around the campground but overall a nice place to stay. - User1308

This is a nice campground in the Berkshires. The site we had was difficult to back into: had to push the pop-up in. Plenty of nice shaded room in the site itself with reasonable privacy.
The camp store is very good; reasonable and well stocked. The home-made donuts in the morning are a highlight.
I am disappointed in the bathrooms and showers. I wish this form allowed a rating of the bathrooms/showers instead of a yes/no. Cleanliness was OK at best; but not outright unclean. The door is often left open (mens) giving no privacy. Shower drains back up every time.
Pool is very nice and clean, just undersized given the number of sites.
Lots of nice areas to walk, wonderful, family-friendly people running the facility. Reasonable pricing. - SHerzig

We stayed during Columbus Day weekend and had a wonderful time. The setting is gorgeous and the site we had was large, level, and convenient to the restrooms, store and playground. The owners had a multitude of activities for the kids during this particular time (they named ts "Colum-boo" weekend) including trick or treating, crafts, a dance, haunted house, pumpkin bowling and more. My 3 kids had a blast riding their bikes all around and it felt like a very safe place to let them explore. The staff and guests were friendly and tried to make it fun for all. Bathrooms and showers were very clean (showers are $0.25 for 7 minutes so don't forget to bring quarters). I would definitely recommend this campground to friends. - BroadwayBaby

Was here for a T@B rally 9/24-27. Campground run by city of N. Adams. Some sites power was at a distance and needed a long cord to plug in. Site 1&2 are small tent sites @$25 a night. Other sites $35-40. Campground host was very friendly. - Trub

This park is long in the tooth and in need of a serious upgrade. At my first assigned site, I couldn't find the electrical outlet. Finally, it showed up, about 75 feet from my site. Electrical panels were shared by two sites, so only one got 30 amp service and the other 20 amp. Sites consisted of white coarse sand and gravel that stuck to everything. To get into the park after 4:30 pm, you had to put down a deposit for a tab to get in, even though the entrance gate had the capability of accepting keyed in numbers. Finally, using a credit card involved a $2.50 fee for the privilege. The campground is on the side of a steep hill (like much of the area). Staff was nice and helpful, but nothing can overcome the deep need for an overhaul. If there were no other campground in the area, we'd stay here again, otherwise probably not. - Jay Rutherford

Town-owned campground and nearby lake are most acceptable, terrific pavilion, fishing and non-motorized boating, right in historic North Adams. Do not let your GPS take you up Mt Everest approach. Come in Route 2 to East Main St and left onto Kemp. Very friendly staff, good security. Can get very busy, suggest reservations. Appalachian Trail and other hiking nearby. Close to beautiful Williamstown and terrific art galleries. Our rate was with a rally. Temporary power problem required some caution: should be fixed soon. We would stay again. - Wheelbarrows

Will return! - User2912

This is a very nice little park in the Northwest corner of Massachusetts. Very friendly staff, always looking to help out any way they can. It rained most of the time we were there, but the site drained extremely well and we were comfortable the whole weekend. The surrounding area is very interesting with plenty to do and see. The only gripe I have about the park is the showers. They're hard to use with the push buttons which give you a few seconds of water at a time. There's no place to sit to get undressed and no place to hang clothes to keep them dry. We'd definitely come back here for another weekend. - 2beagles

Very nice campground. Staff was very friendly. Lots of historical sites to see nearby like Bennington Battle Monument (VT), The Natural Bridge, and Heritage Park Museum (about the construction of the Hoosac Tunnel). Also very close to Mount Greylock the tallest mountain in Massachusetts. We didn't get to drive up it because of the recent snow! We would go back here again to go up Mount Greylock hopefully, with better weather. - B. P. Donelan

We stayed here over Memorial Day weekend, and the campground was pretty full. Even so, it was nice and quiet. The facilities were clean, and the shower was very nice. We hiked some of the trails, and went down to the beach to check it out. Very nice.
This is the type of campground we like and we'll definitely be back.
The only gripe I had is that they had the fans in the bath house on high constantly, and it was freezing cold in there. I asked at the gate, and was told that it was to keep the floors dry. They did turn them off, but just for the rest of the day.
We'd definitely return.
Just one note, the dump station is about a mile from the campground at the park headquarters. Just ask at the gate for directions. - 2beagles

This year we canoed the lower lake and made it to the spill way where the kids enjoyed walking down the slanted concrete hill. The showers had awesome water pressure and plenty of hot water. We really enjoy this campground and look forward to it every year. I did ask about the location of the dump station and was given directions, as it was about 3/4 of a mile away from the campground. There is a general store off of the campground where you can purchase forgotten supplies. We will be going back next year. - B. P. Donelan

I wrote the last review and we went again this year. If you have a chance to hike to the "Balancing Rock" due so. It's a must see of what the glaciers left behind. We had a great time this year as well. We look forward to visiting next year. - B. P. Donelan

We have camped here in a pop up for the last three years. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Nice quiet campground with clean restrooms. Small nature center and nice moderate hiking trail. - popupper

After turning into the driveway to enter the campground I was confronted by a NARROW concrete bridge. My MH is 46K pounds. Do you proceed? I did. We pulled up to the office building and my first impression was this place is a mess, with garbage piled up behind the building. We were here for just a stop for the night. This place is a stopover. if you plan on staying around the area and you have a family, keep looking. This place is fine for a stopover. We are fully self contained so we toughed it out; it was fine for our purpose. All the sites seem to be in a grass field. - Scooter & Crew

We stayed here overnight on our way to Acadia NP in order to visit the Yankee Candle Co. in S. Deerfield. The facilities were tired. We used the toilets, but not the showers. The office facility had a lounge area, but it wasn't at all inviting, and there were no supplies available for sale, as you might expect to find. The staff member we talked with had not been alerted to our reservation, but was friendly and accommodating. Our site was flat and easily accessible in an open field. There were quite a few seasonal sites tucked back in the woods. I would consider stopping here for a day, or so, to visit the local attractions, but only out of convenience. - Alhub

Basic campground with some seasonal sites. It looks like most short term sites are in an open grassy area with no size impediments. Other sites backed into tree line and had satellite dishes on poles (assuming seasonal). 20/30/50A at the pedestal and water, but no sewer. Site I was in needed nothing to be level. WiFi worked very well at our site but with occupancy I can't say what throughput might be like in the summer. Came late in the season and these were the only folks still open. Called in morning to check on availability, both call taker and lady who checked us in were very pleasant and friendly. - Trailbuddy
Aug 2016 - $17.00
A wonderful find in the Berkshires. Next to I-91 just below the MA/VT line. Pull-thru site was in the center of a large grass field with lots of room for rig and truck. Great Wi-Fi, but no TV reception at all. Lots to do and see in the area. Park closes for season on Oct. 15, but may be good for leaf color viewing.
CAUTION, low overpass (11 feet) on River Street approaching park from the north. Check park website for details or call for specific directions. Great value. Will stay here again. - Dunwoodyradio

Nice, quiet park with level sites. Excellent managers with positive attitudes. Enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning. - Greenfrogtrike

Friendly staff and campers. Nice landscaping all around, a tall hedge aisle way gives privacy to sites on the path to the bath house and rec room.
We were offered a pull through when they realized we were only staying one night.
We did not discover the nice rec room until we were checking out. They have quite a library, big TV and many DVDs comfy chairs and sofas too. It is upstairs from the showers, which were clean and lots of mirrors and counters, almost like a dressing table. - cherish

Beautiful spaced out sites, many in the forest. Most sites are level. Unfortunately the bathrooms located by most of the sites, are in need of a major overhaul. Showers had problematic quarter operated timers, and leaked causing the concrete floor to become a giant puddle. - Blowin-the-Wind

We stayed here for 4 nights over the 4th of July holiday. Our intention was to use the campground as a base camp due to the location in the Berkshires. Old campground, lots of old seasonal trailers in disrepair, outdated facilities, no kids’ activities and understaffed owners. Pros; sites were large, wooded and level. Electric was good and we ran our AC the entire time. Fire-pit was large but did not get a chance to use it. No sewer connection but there was a grey water dry well at each site. Pool water was clean. Verizon cell reception was good. Cost was reasonable at $32. Cons; main roads were washed out and had 3’ deep gullies where you could break an axle if you went into one of these, bathrooms were outdated but useable. Entrance road to campground was a single lane dirt road, very dangerous. No sewer at the site. Rec room was outdated by 20 year, no kids’ activities at all. Camp store only had a few items on the shelves. Pool area had weeds that were 4’ tall and maintenance of the pool area was poor. Mosquitoes were unbearable. Staff was rude and talked about insurance regulations the entire time but yet they had a 20’ bonfire and roads that could swallow up a camper, go figure. - Pshaine

Spent the holiday weekend with large group and was a wonderful experience. The staff were very friendly as were the seasonal campers. Fishing pond and rec hall great for the boys. Could use a little more planned activities for the kids. Pool was not open in time for the holiday. Will absolutely consider coming back again! - JBaird
