2 Parks near Charlemont, Massachusetts
Oct 2015 - $32.00
We held a rally here and had a great time. Our 14 rigs were close, all together, and we had use of the pavilion. The weather was awesome, foliage turning, and while we were here at a rally I was not a fan of door to door parking. Since we were all friends we didn't care. Putting two rigs on one post was a way to keep down cost for the owner, but not my favorite configuration. We also had 2 "encounters" with the fire rings, so be aware of that. I hired the honey wagon to avoid the dump station. West Mass doesn't have an abundance of campgrounds "big rig" friendly, and this was easily approached from route 2. Our satellite dish worked (direct tv). Take a walk around to plan your departure to be sure there is room and no tight turns. Try the home made donuts, mmmmmmmmm. - Steve & Irma D.

This is a bit smaller park but open and easily accessible by large rigs. Seasonal sites are huge, transient sites are a bit close and the site next to you will be facing your door. Good way to make friends but some privacy reduction. The transient area is mostly open with just a few smaller/new trees between sites. Fire rings are located at the ends of the site and do present a problem for longer rigs turning in/out of the sites. Dump station would be very difficult to get to with a larger coach. Bathrooms are small but clean. WiFi worked but pretty typical it was very slow. Useable for email mostly. 8 rating is based only on the closeness of the sites and problematic dump station. - CelerraWizard

We camped here with another family for 4th of July weekend. The place is very clean. There are a variety of tent sites scattered throughout the campground, so it is a good place to come if you are tenting, but the bathrooms are few and far between. They are on a river, but it wasn't very accessible. People do come here to river raft, with a Crabapple outlet nearby on Rt. 2, but don't expect to do it from the campground. There was no musical entertainment. They had a rock climbing wall.
Excellent camp store with the most-used RV supplies and groceries. Ice was reasonably priced. Firewood was not. You can't bring in your own firewood, but if you have scrap lumber or pallets to burn, they can't say much. - grumpah

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
