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 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

Older campground with only about 14 Camper sites and 7 tent sites. The rest are seasonals. The pond was big and had a nice beach that was open to the public. The staff seemed like they were just doing their job. Our site was cramped for our 30' travel trailer. They could have spaced the campers apart better that were their this weekend. We were put between two campers that new each other and would cut thru our site, even under our awning. There were empty sites available. This campground is very close to Canobie Lake Amusement Park which is were we spent our Saturday. This is one reason I would go back there again, but that's it. - B. P. Donelan

Owners were very nice, but: - They could have told us the road was closed because of roadworks. We did not see a sign saying it was open for access. We learned this when we spoke to the police officer at the other end 0f a long, hair-raising detour through narrow, twisting and poorly lit back roads, which added half an hour and several miles to our journey. - The access road just inside the park is in urgent need of repair. It's very bumpy. - There may be lead in the fresh water. However, gallon jugs of spring water are available free at the office. - Unbelievably, there is no store on-site and it's a fair walk to the nearest convenience store. How difficult would it be to install vending machines at least? Fortunately we were well stocked up. - There were a lot of carelessly parked cars, making the narrow roads even more difficult to negotiate. - Our plot was tiny and we needed assistance to back in. There was an eight-foot plunge just behind our vehicle. We will not be returning. - AlisonS

The host was the friendliest host that we have met in our short time of camping. Most of the people here are seasonal but that didn't keep them from being friendly.This place is very very clean. I would stay here anytime I am in the area. - Aaron Brown

Diane is great! Very helpful and accommodating. The campgrounds are clean. The roads are unpaved and a bit narrow but room for a big rig. Nice pool and a great new pavilion. There are mostly seasonals but there are 5th wheels, and MH's as well. Quiet setting and good value. If you're looking for luxury, this isn't the place. If you're looking for a clean campground with nice people and a great value, you won't be disappointed. - JaPA

New owners here are very nice and friendly. Campground is very quiet this time of year. There are train tracks nearby but this did not bother us, we love hearing trains. Sites are large. Many sites are seasonal and campers were all working on cleaning up the sites or adding decks etc. Pool looked nice and the owners were busy getting the place ready for the season. All the hook ups were great and modern. Bathhouse was older but very clean. - Happy Camper X2

Very wooded park, good roads and level sites. Boat launch available and fresh water pond on property with beach. If you want cable TV, you need to borrow a converter box (Xfinity) with a $25 refundable deposit. No OTA signal to speak of. No WiFi but good Verizon cell coverage. Mostly seasonals in travel trailers and park models and a handful of transient sites. Try to get in the sites numbered 25-29.
We stayed here to visit the grand kids who live nearby. They came to visit for a day and we sat on the beach then had dinner. Visitors pay $5 per adult and $4 per kid under 14. I thought this was a little steep. The beach wasn't all that good.
We decided we'd go back again but we'd try to get the sites on the edge by the beach (25-29). These were more secluded and in better shape. - jplante4

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

We stayed in a cabin for one nite, as our motor home was in the shop. The cabin was really very nice. Kitchen with all things needed, fridge, stove. sitting area with cable TV (a lot of channels). Bedroom and full bath. Deck around with Gas BBQ, and a fire pit. Never stayed in a cabin before, but this exceeded our expectations. If needed, would stay in the cabin again. There were building "tiny homes", which we didn't check out. Plenty of RV sites as we drove around the camp. - Long Island Mac

It is certainly off the beaten path deep into the countryside off the main roadway reached by a gravel road. The roadway and pull-thru sites are gravel with a picnic table, fire pit and full hookups with cable TV. The lake, Tuxbury Pond, was not very pretty when we were there as it was full of weeds. They have 2 pools and a playground. - Michael Kibler

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

This campground is in a wooded area with lots of trees immediately off the roads on both sides of the winding roads to get to your campsite. Although the park advertises it has big rig access, this is a lie. The trees are so close to the winding road that big rigs cannot make it through without hitting some trees. I damage a window awning. It also only has 30 amp electrical hookups and not 50. I will not be back with my 40 foot motorhome. - F_Jecks

Calef Lake was the first camp ground my family (2 adults, 4 kids) went to after purchasing our Travel Trailer. It was close to home and for that reason we figured it was a good place to try out camping. The people there are very friendly, both the staff and long term campers. The camp ground was very clean, with the site being raked down prior to our arrival. The second time we went, they put wild flowers in a plastic vase out on the fire pit. The beach is raked down daily and it is a nice sloping grade for young kids, with a dock the older kids like to play on. There were a lot of other kids on the camp grounds, giving a mix ages. The camp ground got really quiet at or just after 10pm. For services, the water pressure was good, we didn't have any problems with the electrical or sewer. There is a second pond for fishing, however be prepared to loose a lot of hooks as there are a lot of trees in the water. The overall camp ground is small but quaint. The kids enjoyed bike riding everyday. The camp ground is small enough that they passed the camp site every few minutes making it easier to keep track of them. The dumpers, while are on the way to the beach tend to fill up quick and have a foal odor in the immediate area. The roads can be tight to maneuver larger trailers through the park. All in all, my family really enjoyed the camp ground, and we plan on making regular trips back in the years to come. - NHChris

We stayed here for a week while visiting our son and his family. The campsite we had was very nice size surrounded by trees. We did not like the excessive extra charges for visitors or visitor parking. The seasonal sites were somewhat of an eyesore. We did not use their facilities except for the restroom. I would have preferred a little better campground but all told it is not overly bad. - Dewey Smith
