8 Parks near Mansfield, Massachusetts

If you own a dog, do not visit this park. There are at least two sets of pit bulls owned by permanent residents who attack other dogs regularly. I witnessed a severe attack and the owner of the victim dog was taken off his feet and injured while trying to defend his poor pet.
This is a relatively large campground with too many permanent residents. There are apparently no clutter limits at each site. At one site there was an old sofa parked outside as if it belonged. The roads are certainly accessible and most of the sites are level with adequate shade. Weekend activities load up the energy in the park for the kids. - LarryJohnston

We stayed here twice in summer/fall of 2014. First time for two months. Our site was very nice but in the middle of two roads. There are a lot of seasonal sites. Weekends and holidays were crazy busy. After Labor Day the place cleared out. We will definitely return as they are the best value the area. - Land roving

This place is okay if all you expect is a level place to park, decent water pressure and 50 amp service. WiFi is awful. If you do get it, it's super slow. You only have free access for 2 hours a day. There's pick up and delivery from the train station during the week. Very nice. Check in was chaotic. It was Labor Day weekend and the entrance was jammed. If you've got a big rig be careful upon entering between a large boulder on one side and the key gate on the other. No site escort. They should require the seasonal places to pressure wash and keep their places tidy. They are awful and gives the place a "hood" feel. I even saw a guy looking for bottles and cans in the dumpsters the first couple of days. Sites are grass, dirt and gravel. Roads are mainly dirt and gravel. The grass we do have needs mowing. An employee came out with a weed eater and cut a few weeds on the site next to us and left. The other sites and the dog area (about a foot tall in places) remained untouched. Tons of kids and roving teens while we were there. Cars parked everywhere. Some sites had 4 and 5 cars. Too crowded. The place did thin out after the holiday weekend and might be okay for a couple of days if you're just looking for a place to stay while visiting the city. Just don't expect too much. - AnnS

SO much to do at this campground and we wished we could have spent more time there. We were booked for 4 nights and had driven from Illinois to visit the area. Due to a family emergency back home we had to leave after only 2 nights and they did end up refunding us for 1 of the nights we had paid for but didn't stay. The dog park was huge and our dog enjoyed socializing there. Our teenage boys enjoyed the parks and the pools while we were there. The morning we left we got coffee and breakfast sandwiches at the kitchen there. Lots of rules at this campground but it's huge so we can understand why they have so many. Even with the size of the place, it was pretty quiet at night and in the early morning. - EllenT

Normandy Farms is an exceptional camping resort! It is very easy to get to, right off the highway (495) with gas/coffee close by.
I have stayed here in August for three years with a family that has been coming here for many, many years. Each year we have a group of 16 people (and 3 small dogs) spread over four adjacent sites. I have four children ranging in age from 8 to 20 years old, and all anxiously look forward to this trip each year.
The entire facility is geared towards the family, with CONSTANT activities. If you are looking for a quiet, private campground, this may not be ideal - kids are everywhere (what we wanted). That being said, they enforce quiet-time and make sure fires are out by midnight. The sites are very large, pull-thru and easily accommodate larger trailers and motor-homes. Lots of room both L&W to fit trucks. We turn our pop-ups sideways! Fire-rings/picnic tables at each site. Some sites have cement pads. The roads are not paved, so some dust. They water down the main road throughout the day to keep the dust down.
The facilities are truly exceptional. Numerous large, clean bathrooms/showers; laundry rooms; play grounds, gaming fields and places to play; huge bike park; huge dog park; nice 18 hole disc golf; 4 pools, with one pool indoor. A large pond for fishing, huge rec-hall with kids/adult loft areas, an arcade and so much more. The snack-bar is very good with prices slightly above average.
We have done many of the activities: candy-bar bingo; pay bingo; dodge-ball; softball; nature walk; scavenger hunt; shuffle board; Teddy Town (Build-A-Bear); ceramics (favorite).
Within a few miles: Patriot place with tons of stores & Bass Pro (favorite), Wrentham Outlets (outdoor), Emerald Square Mall.
If you are coming without children or don't plan to use pools/activities, then you are paying a premium; otherwise it is very fair. We joke and call this "the DW of camp resorts", and I HAVE BEEN to Fort Wilderness! - SHerzig

****This campground is NOT BIG RIG FRIENDLY!****
We visited this campground in August 2016. During check in, the staff was distracted and not talkative. The ride to our site was horrendous. Big, old, over hanging trees, hills, sharp turns. Only site available was in the "field." No wifi. When walking around we saw a fifth wheel leaving and in the process scrape the whole side of their rig in trying to get out. We have a 45 ft coach and got out without a scratch, but that was not without going very slow and knowing the coach well. Seasonals are in sites that we just couldn't figure out how they got in, nor how they will ever get out. Would not recommend this campground at all. - Vavrin

Tight squeeze getting in the gate. It was a choice of hitting the gate arm or the bushes, I took the bushes. Two vehicles cannot pass each other because of the narrow road. The interior roads are what I have come to expect in an east coast park, frost heaves, pot holes, etc. Front desk staff wasn't real friendly, just did her job by taking our money and assigning us a site. Got to our site and raised the cover on the power "tree" to find it full of dead bugs. An employee was driving by so I flagged him down and complained and he told me it was because of the caterpillars. Had to share the water spigot with the next door neighbor as our site didn't have its own. - Mooney 201 Pilot

Seasonal rate. Well laid out. Mixed shade/cleared. Christmas in July was going on while we were here. 'Santa' owns the park. He held court, in costume and real beard while we were here. Santa even cooked pancakes for anyone for breakfast! Easy to maneuver around and into sites. Did not check out restrooms. We drove into Boston. CG right on I495. North on 495 then East on 90. Took us right downtown. Service here was exceptional. I needed a tire and they called several places to get me pointed in right direction. - Mike from Bama

We had a wonderful time hiking around the well marked trails and swimming in the lake. The sites varied in level but were fine for our little travel trailer. There was enough to do without leaving the campground for simple bike riding, hiking, and swimming. It is really nicely located for day trips to Plymouth and Cape Cod. Park Rangers were visable making the campground safer for the single camper. I would recommend this State Park to anyone for a simple trip or group rally. - sleepless

This KOA chooses not to enforce its own rules. I contacted management, and they were nothing but apologists for the bad behavior of the known rule breakers. Plan on being woken from sleep many times at night, due to Harley riders revving their hogs, then speeding through the park at night, even after the 11 PM "quiet hours" cutoff. I was told that if these individuals were excluded "all I'd have left is a bunch of Priuses and tents." I was told that 20-25 campers have Harleys every year on Labor Day weekend, so nothing will be done. Everyone deserves to enjoy their camping experience, but not at the expense of others. There are plenty of parks in this area. Pick one where your peaceful enjoyment is a priority. - Pdx discovery

This is like 2 different campgrounds. Last year we were in the back section which was fine but away from everything. This trip we were in a backin site in the front section. We were right in the middle of the activities. Since our grandson was with us this worked out great. We were near the jumping pad, ice cream social, train rides, mini golf and pool. Our location made it real nice. Wifi was good as were the hook ups with great water pressure. We found the campground to be extremely quiet and enjoyable. Staff was great and friendly but could do a little better cleaning sites as our fire pit had trash in it when we arrived. Unfortunately for us it is bee season and they swarmed the site when ever we were going to eat or someone opened a soda. We had to eat a few meals inside to get away from them. This is a nice campground for a quick getaway. - Happy Camper X2

We stayed here for 4 nights visiting family in Taunton and touring Historic Plymouth. Quite a large campground. Our site was very spacious and in a nice part of the campground. We had a private patio, with table and chairs plus our own swing (glider). Although we only have 30 amp, the site was equipped with 50 amp. Water, sewer, wifi and cable included. We would stay here again. - Jack 1939

This was a tough one to review. My rating reflects a comparison to other campgrounds which this is really not. It's a concert venue with some 200 plus seasonal sites and very few (I was told maybe as little as six) sites available for reservation. If you are there when there's not a concert, there's very little to offer by way of amenities/activities. They have a very nice pool and bathhouse and the facilities where clean. The camp store doubles as a gift shop/main entrance on show days and offers virtually nothing as far as supplies go. There is a gas station with a Food Mart adjacent to the property which you can walk to. It has everything (including Subway, Dunkin Donuts) just not a lot of camping supplies. When shows aren't going on you can wander around the venue and have access to a lakefront. They do charge something extra per person and require a $25 refundable deposit for the pool/bathhouse. If you're there for a concert weekend they require a 2 night minimum. They allow you to check out late on Sunday which is nice because they really pack them in. The venue is a great place to see performers up close and they have all the usual concessions. There's plenty of space to wander around and you can still hear the music down by the lakefront. The people who work there and the seasonals who stay there were all very friendly. But be forewarned it is a party atmosphere. Lot's of music and cocktails, and lots of circling around in golf carts. But again, I can't say enough about how friendly people were. - McNamara's Band

The sites are not level and there is no recreation during the week. There is a lake, but there is no recreation on it. I would not camp here again. - har-fl

This campground has a lot of seasonal sites. We stayed in the Nashville area in the front close to the office on huge concrete site that was 30x60. Water, electric and sewer was good. Wi-Fi was strong for access but did not connect to the internet. We have a sprint Aircard and used it instead. This campground caters more to people that want to attend concerts such as Billy Ray Cyrus or Keith Anderson who performed the weekend before we arrived and Charlie Daniels was scheduled to perform the following weekend. If you stay on a weekday, can get in the Nashville sites and have Camp Club USA it isn't a bad place to stay. We would only stay here for a couple of days when passing through. If you stay here say Hi to the gentleman who lives there and loves dogs more than people. - TXBobcat

The campground is well situated. We parked our RV in the campground and biked to ferry boat (35 min). We took the ferry to Boston ($37 for 2, go and back).
The campground is not very clean. No water on sites and 20 amp electricity.
The showers and bathroom and terribly dirty. It is the second time we have been here and still dirty.
No facilities (laundry etc). - Galaf25
Jul 2016 - $23.00
The best thing about this park is you can access Boston from it, it's about 4 to 5 miles from the ferry $4.50 each way. You can get über to the ferry or drive. We biked. The park is beautiful but staff found every reason in the book for not keeping facilities clean. Mold in the showers, dirty floor, etc. - Brian2000

Beautiful forest park with well-spaced sites and clean restrooms just outside a beautiful old small New England city. Convenient to ferry to Boston and roads to Plymouth and Cape Cod. We'll be back on our next New England trip. - Upstater

This is a difficult one to review. The sites are all different. We were out in the middle of a huge grass field that had a dirt, extremely dusty road dividing it. Every time a vehicle drove by we were covered in dust. There was no sitting outside. There were small travel trailer sites all along the perimeter. Some sites looked very unlevel. Its definitely hit or miss here. Old campground. For our two night layover it was fine but would not stay longer. Very overpriced. - Lin and Rich

First, a small correction. While the mailing address of this CG may be Greenville, the physical location (and GPS locatable position) is in North Scituate, RI.
This whole operation is orientated to their seasonals. They seem to look at transients as bothers, at best. The woman in the office could have cared less if we could ever find our assigned site, which turned out to be in the middle of an open field with the welcoming allure of a parking lot. Then, with lots of open spaces, they jammed late arrivals in right next to us.
The laundry was acceptable, but nothing special. One dryer took our money and then didn't work. Nobody to complain to at night.
This was the closest place I could find to the Providence Airport (to send out grandson home) but we will not be staying here again. - Alworth

We stayed here over a week. The site we parked on was an open, grass, pull-through area with tents around the perimeter. We found the management very friendly and helpful. The site was level, easy to park, and had full hook-ups. We were comfortable leaving our rig during the day while we were sight-seeing and visiting. This is a big, sprawling campground. As stated, it has a lot of live-ins, is very rustic and has a bumpy wooded access road. We are not fans of campfires and it seems that is analogous to camping in RI. Every site had a fire pit that most campers burned constantly. We kept closed with the air running. I would not use their laundry room. We will stay here again as it suited our needs. Our rig is over 40'. - Tom&Sophie
