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. We camped at Canoe River Campground in a Motorhome.

Let me begin by saying the staff was friendly and the site was level. The CG advertises free limo service to and from the train station. They were on time in the morning getting you to the station but they failed to pick us up twice. Both times, we had to catch a cab back to the CG after waiting for the no show limo. The park is really dirty and some of the full time sites only add to the unattractiveness of the park. There is duck poop everywhere and the lakes are gross. Whatever you do, do not put that turn signal on and turn in here. We will stay here again only if the snow is too deep in Florida and we can not get to our parking site. We camped at Canoe River Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed on site LS 8 which we had to back down a hill to get to. Which was fine, it took a few times to get it level. Other than that, site was large and very wooded. Backed up to the lake. Also, on the weekend we were here they had truck or treating for the kids which was fun. Hayrides and other things to do. Will definitely be back. Might even try a seasonal site here. We camped at Canoe River Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here for a week while visiting the area. Our site had a view of the river with geese, ducks and swans. The site could have used a bit of a clean up, but was okay. We paid the $10 for Internet for a week and it worked fine. We stayed here for a week and live full-time in our RV with two cats. We camped at Canoe River Campground in a Motorhome.

Staff was friendly and helpful. Sites were level and access was easy. There were a number of permanent residents in the park and most of those campsites were well maintained. We would stay here again. We camped at Canoe River Campground in a Motorhome.

This campground is beautiful. We were there for the 4th of July and were delighted by the campground parade with lots of kids. They appeared to have "scheduled" events throughout the summer. We thought this was an outstanding campground. We camped at Canoe River Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Price reflects added $3 day for internet, which we did not use and $1 for hot shower water. Rate we paid is $38. This is a seasonal and residential camp with scheduled activities. It is kid heaven. It is in wetlands fully of walking, flying and swimming creatures and quiet except for campers. Good campfire wood and camping sites near or away from "action". Great place to bike, walk or jog but not to drive. Front desk staff and camp store are great. Closest to tent camping "in the woods" possible. Entire camp needs a working weekend to pick up site trash and scrub showers and bathrooms. Showers and bathrooms need ventilation. We would return, except my wife, which means we would not, sadly. From 10 -1 Bathrooms, -1 showers. +1 camp staff. +1 value We camped at Canoe River Campground in a Tent Trailer.

The staff was friendly and helpful to us. The sites are a little close together but adequate enough for our unit. We were in the Windmill area with a view of the pond. We camped at Canoe River Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Drove in. Drove out. Dirty and crowded. Water fowl roaming around the campground and river all muddy and full of duck and geese droppings and feathers. We camped at Canoe River Campground in a Motorhome.

This campground is absolutely dirty. I would never come back here. The lake is filthy with trash all over the place, the playground was run down and the campsites are way too close together. I can't believe I stayed here for 3 nights. They need a major makeover. We camped at Canoe River Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed in the Windmill Section. The sites were very close but it was quiet and fairly level so it wasn't a problem. The kids enjoyed the ducks, the unique playground and the pool. Rules of no jumping in the pool and no kids (older) swimming without an adult didn't seem to be enforced. I made the boys stay in the shallow end as I was afraid they would get jumped on by the teenagers. Ice Cream Sundaes on Sunday were nice. There is no escort to your site, which would of been appreciated. I think because most sites are seasonal. We couldn't make the turn to get out of our loop as there were cars parked alongside the pool. Ended up getting stuck and having to unhitch the car while blocking all traffic. One of the workers told us they TRY to catch the offenders that park there. Other than that, it was a good weekend and we would go back, although I would probably stay in the big rig section in the back pull through sites and pay a little extra to have some space.

During the weekend when we stayed there in July it was very busy with people coming and going. Lots of kids on bikes and on foot. There is one area where you might get a dish on the roof to work but not where we parked. We were camped in a heavily wooded area and one night about 10 PM a small dead branch landed on the roof of the motorhome. Lots of seasonals but it is very quiet during quiet hours. Pretty quiet all week too. They have a complimentary limo to take you to the commuter train station which takes you to South Station in Boston. There is a narrow road the last 1/4 mile or so before you reach the campground and also a narrow bridge. The staff is very friendly and helpful. They recommended a young girl to tend to the animals so we could spend the whole day in Boston. The rate above is a weekly rate for a 30A full hookup back in site. We camped at Canoe River Campground in a Motorhome.

My wife loved this park. The spaces are a little close for comfort, but the park has some stunningly gorgeous water. Our site backed up to this beautiful lake, often occupied by swans and duck, which would often sit next to the RVs with no fear of intermingling with the campers. Besides this lake, there were are least four others all within the campground boundary. Beautiful. Near our site were two large swimming pools as well, which were often full of happily playing children and parents, making the place feel vibrant and boisterous. The uniquely built playground equipment was also a bonus to any family looking to stay here. We camped at Canoe River Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Site assigned was a gravel back in and very unlevel. Electrical box was extremely dirty inside around the connection. This is an older campground that could use some TLC. Access to this RV park is via some country roads and streets that do not make it easy for a transient to find, hence most campers here are local. We camped at Canoe River Campground in a Motorhome.
