This park is very convenient to the Nashua, NH and Lowell, MA areas. It is a small park on a beautiful lake, and primarily caters to long term residents. The park offers few amenities, but the rates are very reasonable. Comcast cable and phone service is available on every site. The park is closely monitored by the owner via video cameras, and it is not unusual for the operators of the part to come out and meet incoming campers without being prompted. No pool, showers, or Wi-Fi is provided, but if you need a decently priced campground for a long term stay in this area, this park stands out. - tricotec

Very helpful host; he helped us get into our site and gave us a lot of info about the local area. Nice laundry facilities (although no quarter machine) and a book exchange. The Famcamp is first come, first served (no reservations), but we had no problems in October. Plenty of spots available, even for our big 42.5' fifth. Easy to navigate to the park, as well as the interior roads. You have your choice spots with plenty of tall trees overhead, or in wide open areas. Excellent value in a great location. - RVerFamily

Nice park but nothing special. Good wifi. No cable and satellite is site dependent; was able to get with my portable by running wire across the street to open area. No reservations. - z32k12

Nice location near Boston area. The campground is near the airport runway with mostly civilian aircraft traffic. The campgrounds has dated facilities but the staff are excellent. The local history is rich in sites and information about the American Revolution period. - boomerlee

Easy commute in and out of Boston. Nice large site with fire pit and table. Trees were trimmed high enough to our 13' high coach to fit comfortably under. Lots of exposed tree root to trip you but that's what camping is all about. We were in the site just across from the office. The main cg area is tight and crowded. We were very happy with where we were assigned. The park sign is hard to see as it is hidden behind tree branches. When leaving with your unit, recommend turning right as traffic is very heavy and fast. If you go right there is a very good turnaround on the left just before the traffic light. Safety first. We would stay again. - FT Travelers3

Park has great location, and is reasonably quiet. The Wifi was not great. We used this as a base for visiting friends in Boston and southern NH. - novastorm

We have stayed at this campground before and were happy to reserve here again while visiting family in the Boston area. Sites are located under very tall evergreen trees, and our site was fairly private with woods on one side. Some sites in the interior part of the park are less private. The dog park was appreciated! Managers are friendly and helpful, and all facilities were clean and in good order. There was some road noise during the night which is perhaps to be expected in an urban area. - kvdvirginia

The site we had was a pull through that we were able to pull into but were not able to pull out of safely with our 30' travel trailer. They had just finished installing water on every site but we were not charged for the fee for water. The playground was very modern. The kids had a great time riding their bikes. The swimming area didn't look too great and the pond was okay for canoeing with my 10 year old. We probably won't go back but do recommend it. - B. P. Donelan

We've stayed here before and will again, since we have relatives nearby, and there are no other options as convenient for us. However, the sites are lovely but primitive. Parking is tight, so larger rigs should avoid. Outstanding locations for tents. - Tiger

Harold Parker is a treasure close to Boston. The park has miles of hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding trails among eleven ponds for boating and fishing and swimming. There are more geocaches in this park than I have ever seen before. The Rangers keep the bathrooms and showers neat and clean. The sites are large and well spaced. Most sites are surrounded by trees. We come here whenever we need a short getaway. The only issue with Harold Parker is the historic use of the Park as a party place for many young people. The Rangers have started to staple the rule stating "Alcohol is not allowed in any Massachusetts State Park" to every campground map so I believe there will be a zero tolerance for alcohol related disturbances. Even so, inspect your site before allowing the kids to run barefoot. Police patrol through the park and campground regularly day and night. This is a lovely place and the Rangers are doing a great job preserving and restoring it. - Wind Rider

This place looks like it has finally closed as suggested in a 2004 post. Although it was open last year, all rigs are cleaned off from the premises and the web site telephone number is "no longer in service". Make way for some condo's! - jdkd123

Overall our stay was good. The staff was friendly and stopped to talk to us regularly. As others have mentioned the site we had was roomy. In my opinion, big rigs (40+ feet) might have an issue negotiating the interior roads. The free Wi-Fi was best in the early morning hours (but not great), once the campground filled up, internet access was limited most of the time, and sometimes not useable. The cable TV was very poor, luckily our satellite connection was good. Prior to staying at this campground, we never had an issue with our Surge Guard, but one phase at this campground was constantly reading 130 vac and occasionally it would trip. Now that we've moved to another state and campground, we're not having any issues with it tripping. - gMw

A great, quiet RV park, good sized sites. Too may trees for satellite TV. Wifi was really not working when we were there. We would stay here again if we are in the area. - John and Carol

Stayed here for a weekend while visiting friends in Nashua. Quite a few of the sites are seasonal/permanent campers, but all are well maintained. Our site was roomy for an older campground. W/S/E were all in excellent condition and did not require any extra hoses or cable. Sewer pipe was a bit high. Asphalt surface was a little beat up, but level, solid, and easy to back into. There was no designated dog walk, rather several "don't walk your dog here" areas. Very nice stream and pond, and plenty of trees around the outside. The free Wi-Fi was excellent. Great coverage, strong signal, and I never experienced it slowing down. $45 per night is the going rate in the area. Staff was friendly and helpful. I would certainly stay here again. - BounderPounder

Since this state campground is local for me, I was very pleasantly surprised how quiet and nice it was. There is a modern restroom with free showers and two older restrooms that were still clean. The campground sits on top of a hill from the swim area which can make it a hike for little campers. The swim area was a little muck on the bottom but my kids didn't mind. The pine trees offer good shade from the sun. There is also another state park nearby which honors the Pearl Hill camping pass for swimming. Willard Brook has a nicer swimming area but the water is a little colder. We stopped off at it on our way home. They also have camping but they only have one site that our travel trailer would fit on. We drove through it and the road through the campground is a little tight. We definitely would go back to Pearl Hill again and enjoyed our stay and it's really convenient in its location. - B. P. Donelan

Definitely a seasonal camper park. Pool was clean, bathrooms clean, but obvious most folks are here all the time and they like to police the "short-timers." Take our advice and get the tokens to get in and out of the campground as no one is usually around to assist with the gate. Camp store is barely stocked with anything. It is very close to Erving State park. No cell service. 20 minutes to the nearest store or anything. Glad we only stayed here one night. - mskalar

This campground is in the rebuilding stages as the current owners has owned it for a year and a half. Talking with some of the seasonals, the owners are making it a much nicer place than what it was. There were a lot of kids for my kids to play with. The playground was easily viewable from our site so that we could keep an eye on them. It was a slow weekend and we got one of their best sites (#S10). The pool was nice and there are strict rules on it's use. Tent sites looked nice under the pine trees. I would go here again. - B. P.

This is an older park with very sharp turns and low hanging branches. The hook ups at our site were difficult to access, not centrally located and need to use extra hose. We feel this park was too expensive. the owner was on site and very helpful, probably the highlight of the park. - Al and Anne-Marie

Very sandy site - tough to level rig. Our site was right across from playground for the kids - very noisy during the day. Bathrooms have a weird latch system to turn on the lights. Didn't use the shower. Park looked a little "tired". Interior roads were extremely uneven and full of ruts.
We stayed 3 nights so we could visit Boston, in August, in the heat! Phew!
Nothing really wrong with the park but I think I would look elsewhere next time.
Staff pleasant and helpful. - DCM/JMB

Stayed 5 days had a great time. Not a corporate cookie cutter campground. Very homey, you felt like you belonged almost a part of the family. We enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back again.
5 miles per hour speed limit in the park! - Chris hart

I really liked this park. Super friendly and helpful staff. The golf course will challenge any golfer Tight course which rewards straight shots. Greens are fast and true. Be sure to make a reservation if arriving in a motorhome . - Dave Kain

Great park. Friendly staff. Showers weren't the cleanest I've seen. There were a lot of spiders and mosquitoes, but the campground is in the woods for the most part so I guess that is to be expected. Overall a great stay! We stayed on the golf course. - FerullosCoasting

I had high hopes for Hidden Valley RV and Golf course until we actually arrived.
We have a 32' travel trailer and it can be tight in many spots. Knowing this, the staff reserved a spot for us when we called knowing we couldn't fit into most of their spots. Upon arrival we find out that they gave our spot away ( a blessing in disguise) and moved us to the rear of the park. Our new site was backed up to a maintenance path used by golfers and staff but non the less it wasn't a bad spot. Very hard to back into being a tree was on the back in drivers side but once in, it was fine.
Now let's talk about the RV Park. I'd say 90% seasonal RVers. They pretty much let the people do what they want with the sites. Patios made of cinder blocks. Overgrown grass and trailers that haven't been moved in decades. There was a mini tennis court with a broken gate and a net about to fall off. One playground at the entrance of the park and that's about it.
Now knowing the lack of amenities, we thought what would be the big deal with inviting our family to our camper being they never saw it. Well once we asked the front desk if it would be a problem having them over they said they would need to charge $6 per person and $9 if they stay past 9pm. When asked what amenities are they paying for besides visiting us, no pool, no activities, nothing, they said that's policy. I understand, but when you have nothing you would hope people would want to spend time there.
So to wrap it up, if you're a transient RVer like us with kids and would like a clean, organized, RV park with amenities, and friendly staff, this is not your place. If you're cool with being mixed in with seasonals that look like they permanently moved in, give it a shot. For us, we will never return. - Tippys Leroy Brown
