We spent almost a week there with the kids (ages 10-8) across from the pool area. This is a beautiful campground and we often saw the staff working to maintain it: mowing, weeding, cleaning the grounds. The pool was nice and warm and clean. (We saw owner cleaning and checking the pool every morning.) There was a nice large deck around the pool to sit with chairs, tables and umbrellas. There is minigolf (looked in decent shape but we did not do) and mining $5 or $9 per bag (we did, kids got nice gems) on site. There is a fishing pond and a boating pond. We didn't do paddle boats because it looked a little too weedy. Our site was a large pull through with water, electric and sewer. There was hair (from a human haircut) on our site when we got here, but when told, the staff was quick to go rake it up. The playground was in good shape. There were a few activities during the week and many on the weekend. They were well organized and well run by friendly staff. It rained a few days while we were here and we still had fun hanging out in the rec hall playing ping-pong, air hockey, wii, watching a movie (scheduled activity), doing puzzles, and eating from the snackbar. Staff moved up the dance from 7pm to 6pm because of bad weather, to give campers something to do. DJ was friendly and kids had a blast. Pizza was good and other items were reasonably priced. We all loved the Sunday breakfast buffet. Ladies showers need a little updating but the rest of the bathroom was obviously recently renovated. Close by we visited the Granville Country store (GREAT cheese) and the Gran-Val scoop (ice cream and a few farm animals to feed and pat). Overall one of the nicer campgrounds we have visited truly due to the staff. We will definitely return after we get the truck tuned up and brakes checked. The hills on the way to the campground were long and steep! We camped at Prospect Mountain Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Bathrooms were small, old/dirty, soap dispenser was empty often and paper towel dispenser was broken for 3 days! They advertised mini-golf, but we learned that it was staffed only on the weekend, and closed at 1 PM. Paddle boats advertised for use on pond were locked up and staff not available on the holiday weekend to unlock and clean for use. Many unsupervised kids roaming the camp grounds. Went to do a craft activity on a rainy day, and staff would not set up an additional folding table for us, but rather expected our family to split up to different tables with available chairs, not very friendly or accommodating. We camped next to a cabin on the pond that was allowed to set up multiple tents at their cabin, which made for many people at one site, and blocked our view of the pond. We would never return to this campground. We camped at Prospect Mountain Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is not an easy park to get to with a 40 foot motor home. We traveled 14 miles on narrow, twisting, mountainous roads to get to the campground. The spot assigned to us was supposed to be a pull through, but the deep pot hole on the road prevented us from trying to pull in. We tried to back into the spot but there was a mound of dirt and large rocks that prevented that, too. (We scraped the bottom front of the rig trying.) We moved to another nearby spot and were able to back into that one. The park is in need of some maintenance, and the office staff should be more aware of where they are sending big rigs. It is a beautiful, quiet park if you have a smaller rig and don't mind driving through mountainous country roads. We would look for a different campground if we get up this way again. We camped at Prospect Mountain Campground in a Motorhome.

Pros:overall, seems like a nice, well-run campground. The free Wi-Fi worked well. The pool is nice. It does not allow kids to swim without parents and has adult swim hours. The two ponds are fun places for kids to catch minnows and salamanders with nets (we were told there aren't many bigger fish though). Cons: we were near a group of cabins where a large group was staying, which meant loud music and a lot of noise. Also, there were a lot of unsupervised teens and pre-teens who were often hanging out at or near the playground, which made for an unpleasant atmosphere for little kids. The bigger kids were standing in the baby swings, using foul language on the playground and leaving trash there. Each time we went to the play area, I had to pick up several pieces of trash, including crushed cans, ice cream sticks, etc. There are plenty of trash cans around the play area, so it's unfortunate that campers can't be bothered to use them. We camped at Prospect Mountain Campground in a Travel Trailer.

I would highly recommend this campground. The staff are friendly and will help with anything. Everybody is friendly and willing to stop and chat. There were several activities for families. The pool has adult swim times and family swim times so adults can enjoy the pool and relax without kids splashing them. We would definitely stay here again.

This is a tale of two campgrounds. As you enter the campground the sites on the left must be part of the "old" section and are very small, wet and dismal. The sites on the right are for the most part decent, a bit more open and definitely drier. Unfortunately, for us we were in the old section. Our site was so small our awning was actually touching our neighbors, we were perched on a high spot with the rest of our site surrounded by water. Our neighbor behind us was not quite 3 feet away and if they had started a campfire would have burned our camper. The bathrooms are cleaned 2 times a day however they were still a mess and dirty. There were decent activities for the kids and adults. The interior roads in the campground were terrible, very rutted and filled with massive holes. I don't think we will be returning to Prospect Mountain anytime soon. We camped at Prospect Mountain Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This campground was our very first camping experience as a family, and we were there with friends. There were good points and bad points. The good points were the staff was very friendly, the store had everything we needed (including a longer electrical cord because the outlet was on the opposite side as our camper), and the prices were very reasonable. The activities were fun and the fireworks were awesome. Our friends had an open sunny grassy site, while ours was very small, shady (we did appreciate the shade actually), and it was all dirt. Other bad points were the picnic table definitely needed to be covered, the roads were very rutted, and our site #36A was not marked very well and difficult to back into. The pool was a little crowded, but clean. The lake had weeds all along the edge that our fishing lines kept getting tangled in. We brought our bicycles and some hills were too steep for our kids to pedal up. On the plus side, our son made a great friend and because we were with friends, there was a lot of laughter and good times. We camped at Prospect Mountain Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We thought Prospect Mountain was a very nice, family orientated campground. We liked our pull through site. We enjoyed visiting with neighbors who were seasonals, they were very helpful and friendly. Overall a very enjoyable experience and highly recommend this little gem of a campground! We camped at Prospect Mountain Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here for Labor Day Weekend 2007 (price per night probably reflects this), We really enjoyed the park they had a lot of scheduled activities. All roads were gravel most were in decent shape. Sites were big and fairly level. We would recommend this campground to others. We camped at Prospect Mountain Campground in a Motorhome.

We chose this campground because of it's proximity to the Eastern States Fairground (40 minutes away) for the 2007 Big E. We had site #76, which is right on the main road. The site was flat, but not level; we had to lower the front of the camper so much we couldn't use the tripod for stability. The site was well situated, shady and very clean. Because we were there for the fair, we left very early in the am and came back late at night. The staff was friendly and helpful at check in. Little store was well stocked and reasonably priced. The campground was very clean, but many of the trees are very low hanging and the majority of the roads we walked had a great deal of washout. We were happy to have a site so close to the front of the campground. It is off season in Mass (at least until the leaves start to turn) so the only activity offered was bingo at night. The rec hall did have lots of tables and games and a pretty big TV. While exploring, we saw a large, clean swimming pool and two small weedy ponds. There are many seasonal sites here. We would go back. We camped at Prospect Mountain Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Great Family Park!!! My wife and I tented with our 2 year old at site 40, which is a waterfront site and had a blast. Lots to do for the kids: tye dying, chocolate pudding slide, hay ride, fireworks, and many other activities for kids AND adults. Nights are quiet so after the kid goes to sleep we can hang out by our camp fire. We camped at Prospect Mountain Campground in a Tent.

We enjoyed our weekend here. It is a steep grade on the road leading to the campground. We don't like to push it and kept it at 30mph. We had site 7, which was a pull thru next to the pool. After reading previous posts I wondered if we would have full hookups. Luckily we had sewer as we had requested. Our site was a bit narrow with the awning out. The in-lays had site 6, which was more spacious so we ate meals there. Just make sure you have boards to level your unit as the sites are not that level. The pool was very clean. We enjoyed it each day and wasn't too crowded. The campground is quite large, with lots of seasonals. Mini-golf was okay, and they have rc cars you can rent as well as a sluice to pan for gems if you want. We camped at Prospect Mountain Campground in a Travel Trailer.

As others have stated the trees could use some trimming. Pool was nice had adult swim 2 times a day. Very quite during the week. The weekend the campground started to fill up but was still very quite. Fishing was ok the kids got to catch some fish. There are two ponds some with waterfront sites. Overall a nice campground.

The roads to the campground are full of potholes. Tree branches need trimming as they scrape your unit's roof and sides. We were promised W/E/S but when we arrived they only had W/E available even though we made a reservation and paid in advance. Lots of seasonals. Not our favorite place. We camped at Prospect Mountain Campground in a Motorhome.

After reading the reviews here, I called to make reservations at this campground, which is
not too far from my home for Memorial Day weekend. Guess which site I ended up with - #58. The one listed above as being flooded. I asked the owner about it, and he said there is a sump pump there and it works fine. I hoped for sunny weather and took a chance and booked it. It rained the day we arrived, and the ground was pretty wet, but there was only a small puddle around the pump which was gone by the next day. The rest of the weekend was sunny, so I couldn't complain about that problem. The site was huge with both sun and shade. We took the hayride around the campground and I think #58 is one of the nicest there. When I made the reservation, I did ask for a site with a full hookups, but #58 has no sewer. The owner's son was in the area and when I asked where the sewer connection was he said there wasn't one, and that they call their electric and water sites "full" hookups. Nice to know now. He said there's only about 15 sites that have a sewer connection. My bet is that they all belong to the seasonal people there. So, that was a bit of a disappointment since there were 5 of us camping. Although both he and another woman in the camp office told us to just dump our grey water on the ground. I know most campgrounds don't allow this, but we went ahead and did it. We used our sewer hose to get the water closer to the sump pump area. And although they have a honey wagon on the premises, they don't seem to offer it as a service. When I inquired about it, I was told they do it on Tuesday's or if you had an emergency, like your black tank was full, but generally on holiday weekends they don't take it out. Sure enough, an hour after I asked about it, I saw it drive by headed to another site. Other than that issue, we had a great time there. The campground had a ton of activities for kids, a decent size playground, a heated pool, and a rec hall. All of this is at the front of the campground so the rest stays pretty quiet even though there were tons of kids (and just as many dogs). There is a very small pond for free paddle boat rides too. The campground is at the top of a mountain and the drive up was a little difficult. My trailer is at the max. weight for my tow vehicle so the steep S-turns near the top of the mountain were a struggle at 25 mph, but we
made it! Overall, a nice weekend. We would visit again. We camped at Prospect Mountain Campground in a Travel Trailer.
