21 Parks near Goshen, Massachusetts

Great little state park, known locally as the Goshen Ocean. When we arrived with our travel trailer I headed to several of the potable water stations located around the campsite loops. They were all very low pressure, timed push button, faucets that would be fine for filling a water canteen or jug, but not our fresh water holding tank. I decided to head to the dump-station hoping there was a potable spigot we could use. After looking at the campsite map, I didn't see a dump station. I headed out to the check-in station and asked the ranger. She informed me that their dump facility was about two miles away, next to the park headquarters office and maintenance yard. We headed over there, and quickly filled our tanks without issue from a dedicated potable water station adjacent to the dump station.
The restrooms and shower nearest to our site were fine. Clean, but aging.
While there, we took several hikes around the pond area, swam in the campers-only beach (which is located across the pond from the more crowded public access beach), and attended several of the children's workshops hosted at the Nature Center located within the park. - malsbury

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

We were part of a group so rate reflects shared cost. This is a COE campground. Campground is divided into two loops, Both or either loop can be reserved. Campground is located in a gorgeous valley bordered by a river with tubing & fishing possibilities. Steep entrance road but decently graded even after the previous weeks rain. Great place to relax, shaded and open areas, level campground. Campground is dry camping but has flush toilets with hot showers with one electrical outlet in field. - mdcamping

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

At least 12 miles off the Mass Pike but the secondary roads are fine for a big rig. We were an overnite passing thru Mass. Doesn't seem like there is a lot to do nearby. 6 flags is 27 miles. They created new big rig sites last year and ours was an EZ in and out (97). We had shade and nice grass which was helpful because it was hot with a picnic table and paver fire ring. These were the high points. Our outside nice grass area was within 12' of a cabin. If it was occupied we'd be on top of each other. As it was mid week there wasn't a problem. Would be a great site if a family had a camper and others stayed in the cabin. 50 amp electric under 120 coming in on each leg so had to juggle what was on or off. It really struggled all night and one of our a/c units went out because of low power. Cable tv needed a call to the office. Someone had switched the wires. Go figure. We waited over an hour for someone to show. Wifi hotspot weak. Some devices could not connect and when one is on too long it throws you out even if you're not using much broadband. It happened just as I was writing this review! Upfront sites for transients are narrow, close and full sun. Way overpriced at over $50. Not many campgrounds or parks in the area that can accommodate big rigs. Would not return unless desperate. - Team Asphalt

New pull thru site, 90' long, made it very easy to set up. Campground is large, with a lot of activities, but in need of weed killer and a can of paint. Landscaping was , at one time, gorgeous but now choked out with weeds. Lot's of buildings for everything form game room to snack shop, but need boards replaced and painted, nothing dangerous, just not cosmetically appealing, even for being in the woods. Great shade, easy access to entire campground and decent sized sites. Weekend events were numerous and well communicated including a large event board at the pool so all would know what was going on. Kid events and family events.. we were there for Christmas in July and the park was decorated with lights and Santa made a stop to give out presents to the kids. - Bill VDA

So hard to to judge, because some parts of this park are great, while others need to be attended to. Great dog park and newer playground. Tired and worn bathroom/showers (though clean). Only one shower per shower house. Plenty of activities for kids. Interior roads need a fresh application of gravel. They really try with nice plantings and free nice kindling to help yourself to when you buy firewood. Constant clouds of dust near the front from the golf carts the staff and guests use to get around. We were in one of the pull-through sites in front - quite close together. There seemed to be something lacking in the work ethic of the younger staff.
One thing comes to mind as I think about this campground. I witnessed interactions between staff and the owner's youngish daughter (who speeds around on a golf cart all day with various friends). From her treatment of those she spoke to/at - can attest to where the breakdown in customer service occurs. In the service industry, attitude can make or break your experience. As long as you don't have much interaction with certain staff, you'd be fine.
All in all, if you are visiting the area, it's a fine choice to stay. - RoadAbode

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

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

They just suffered a major flood, so some of the issues are a result of that. They did end up redoing the pool completely, so that is quite nice and brand new. The sites that are higher up in the park seemed nicer than ours down the hill. It was very wet when we were there and extremely muddy. Also very, very hard to back into the sites and our little trailer is just 19 feet total (16 ft body). Sites are pretty close to one another. The bathrooms are in serious need of updating. The management seemed quite friendly. The campground is less expensive than many in this general area of western MA. It has the potential for being a very nice campground. I would start with more concrete -- site pads, etc. to alleviate the mud situation since even if there is no flooding at any given moment, it rains a lot in this part of the state. - Gaius Gracchus

Nice place with a friendly staff. Clean pool, clean bathrooms, limited numbers of showers, sites near the office and house are very level, sites on the upper side are challenging to access. Only trouble is they are extremely limited in flat land due to steep mountains. Loved sleeping to the sound of the stream. - Freeman2004

We came here for a weekend. We had a site on the brook side. The sites were very nice, good size and level. Water on both sides. We went for a walk and there were a lot more sites up the hill, a bit more rustic but beautiful. The back of the fire pit was made from the natural rock emerging from the mountain. It was beautiful. The pool was small and the store was small. The people were very friendly. I don't remember WiFi or cable TV. - meister

This is not a "big rig" park. The first clue are the overhanging branches trying to knock off your air conditioner the last two miles into the park. If that were not enough, the bridge into the park has a labeled load limit of 6 tons. These are not reassuring hints. The park itself is fine except that the layout of sites is haphazard to say the least. No site aligns with another and are placed sporadically. - LarryJohnston

The park is open and spacious. It is old and needs major upgrade. The 30 amp service we had was suffering from low voltage. We were supposed to get a full hookup. The only full hookup was in a difficult back in. They offered us a electric/water site and they would dump us when we needed because we paid for full hookup. When we asked to be dumped there were always an excuse. They did dump, but it left us with a bad taste. Most of the park is for seasonal. On the way out we had to use the dump station although we paid for full hookup. - roybrody

This was an OK campground. They need to do some work on their roads, they are gravel and have huge washout spots. We were almost afraid we wouldn't get our rig out of there. Our main complaint though is that they only have 15 amp service for the electric and that was not told to us when we booked. We were told full hook ups which to us meant 30 Amp at least. - The Snows

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

This is a small, family-owned campground in the Berkshires. It is very neat and clean and the owners are very accommodating and friendly; their grandson (13) earns his keep by running the honey wagon ($12) and is a hard worker. The site we had was more than large enough to accommodate our 34' MH and very handicap accessible. While there appear to be many 'seasonal' and some 'permanent' residents, the sites are well maintained. The only distraction at the time we were there was the railroad construction that was occurring on the main road needed to get to the campground...a little tight for a 34' MH, but that should be cleared up by next season, and we were able to find an alternate route to and from the campground. - Steve & Linda
