The campground was crowded, but it didn't feel like it. We camped over part of Memorial Day. Because of the holiday we weren't able to get it for the whole weekend - only Sunday and Monday nights. However, as most people left on Monday we were able to move to a location with a view of the lake. There are no hookups, only dry camping. They do have an $8 handling fee. The setting is peaceful and the sites are spacious. There is some noise from traffic, but it's not overwhelming. - RonMill

We've been coming back and forth here for years. These are large sites with many right on the water. We love to come back year after year. - Campers for Life

Another year, another review. We just love going camping here and the kids had a great time. My younger brother also loved this state park with canoeing, bike riding, and the trails. We always look forward to going again next year. We will definitely be back. - B. P. Donelan

We had a great Father's Day weekend here at this campground. My youngest son loved trying to catch the frogs and tad poles at the pond. Water was a little cool, but it has been pretty rainy. Bathroom was clean, and showers had plenty of hot water. There is a dish washing station that makes dry camping much better. We will go back again. - B. P. Donelan

The site that we had was awesome. It was right near the bathroom and still was very private. We all enjoyed the swimming in the small pond. My children also liked the parking lot for the restroom for riding scooters and skateboards around. The icecream man drove through the campground so we were able to get a special treat. I would like to go camping here again and maybe try renting one of the yurts. - B. P. Donelan

The only reason I didn't give it a "10" is because it's not an "RV" park. This place is a little gem hidden away in north-central Mass. The sites are well-shaded but don't allow room for more than about 20' of trailer. It's a great place for popups, tents or small (<20') rigs. The staff is very friendly and the nature interpreter does an outstanding job with her programs. The campground was very quiet on weeknights and still quiet on weekends. We'll definitely be back in our small hybrid. - rudeman

This campground has a lot that would appeal to kids. The pool I used is very basic but was clean. Many seasonal campers. - Lane Wise

This was our maiden voyage with a travel trailer that we just got brand new. Everything should have gone fine. We hook up on a Friday night with kids and dogs in tow, and no electricity (us, not the site). After my husband went round and round checking things and I made every phone call I could think to make we almost thought about going home. The gentleman at the desk up front came down when he heard we were having trouble. He went through it all again with my husband and about 20 min later we had power!!! Turned out there was faulty wiring inside the trailer. Amazingly nice people here. - Wristonwheeler

This is a huge family owned RV park that is at least 90% seasonal. If you are a short time stay, you will be in the center section of the area referred to as "Safari Field." The center section is for us and the outsides are seasonal campers. No so unusual for this area of the country.
The access was paved and or gravel. The back-in sites in Safari Field are very spacious from side-to-side with full hookup and cable TV. This is an open with grass and gravel sites and some nicely spaced trees. You won't have a problem with using your satellite. We were going to hook up to cable but found our connection to be quite corroded and didn't bother trying to get it repaired.
We arrived on the day the park officially closed for the season and they allowed us to stay for a full week. We filled up the tanks with water just in case we had a freeze.
The park is old but beautiful if you like nature, trees, birds, etc. Nice and quiet while we were here. The fall colors were fantastic. - Moe and Flo are on the go

We've stayed several times at Woodmore. Quiet campground. Sites have plenty of trees so you don't feel so open to your neighbor. Cell phone service good and they have cable. Large play area for the kids. Owners and staff are great! - Lover of Cairns

This was the first time we have stayed at Woodmore. The website gives you the idea that they are strict, and very rule oriented. While I understand there have to be rules, I don't care for very strict parks. Rather, we should all govern ourselves respectfully without having the management getting involved. That being said, we had no issues with this park at all! The staff was great, we met both of the owners (Husband & Wife, great folks). They were curious and friendly. They do adhere strictly to the site occupant limits, and we had to rent a second site to accommodate the one adult (5th adult) that we were over the limit by. The site we had was at the end of the "T" section. They seem to section off the seasonal from the traditional campers (good idea IMO). The sites varied greatly in terms of size. Some sites were quite small, but ours was a perfect size for our HTT. The amenities were all in great condition, and well maintained! The Bocci court was the best we've seen in 2 Summers, we played for hours!! They have paddle/row boats & cohoes for rent. We rented 3 boats and all went for a nice paddle around the lake, let the kiddos explore the tiny island right offshore (told them it was a treasure island, we couldn't wipe the smile off their faces!!). The bathrooms & showers were nice & clean. Showers are extra large & roomy. My wife had an issue with the hot water in the showers on the first morning. We spoke to the owners and they PROMPTLY resolved the issue. This was a great CG. Family oriented, friendly ownership & staff, great facilities & amenities. We will be back in 2015 for sure!! As a note: I only gave them an 8 for a couple of reasons. 1)The majority of the sites were quite small. When we return, it will be contingent on getting the same site we did this time. There were no other sites that appealed to us (too small, not enough separation etc.). 2)The firewood they sell was all pine. It was a nice service, and the price was good ($7 for a barrel of it, and they bring it right to your site). But it wasn't difficult to go through 3+ buckets a day for a decent fire (we like having nice fires). - BigNuge

Came for a weekend to get away, but would not stay here again. On the plus side, might fit you if you have a lot kids and a smaller rig. On the negative, nothing is paved (roads or campsites) so whenever it rains the place is a mud pool. Sites are generally smaller and packed together with lots of trees. No Wi-Fi. Very noisy on Saturday as they had open air karaoke with the sound system so loud that my RV shook. - snolan

Very small State Campground with "real" outhouses except for a recently built shower/bathroom near our site #15. The kids enjoyed the fresh air and the swim area which is also a day use facility. The lake is also good for fishing and there is a boat ramp. The staff was very friendly. My youngest saw a wild animal in a tree which ended up being a porcupine. The sites are small but are very well spaced apart. We usually camp in a travel trailer but borrowed my brother's pop-up for this trip. We plan on returning for a weekend as long as we can get close to the bathroom facility. - B. P. Donelan

Nothing to do. Was pretty rundown, overpriced and unsightly. Lots were very close and sunny. Site surface was dirt. Would not recommend it.
It has a gate that opens for anyone, but you need a code to get out? Most of the permanant trailers are run down covered in moss and mold. No cable tv unless you want cable tv to install it for $110.00. Police were in and out most nights. - Gypsy8

Park is in bad shape, old run down abandoned trailers. No cable, only 30 amp electric. Overpriced in my opinion. - traveler88

This is a great campground for seasonal camping. Lots of sites with improvements like porches, sheds and multiple golf carts. The moon rising up over the mountain reflected in the lake was beautiful. The showers needed updating -- they were pull chain to operate and the rubber mats could have benefited from a a bleaching. The camp owner was hot and cold; this might make some feel unwelcome. Looked like a good place to camp with a boat. - mrsgranett

Quiet park great for tenters or hybrid campers. Our 32ft 5th was too big for most of the roads. The only bathrooms we saw was an outhouse and only one dumpster aat the entrance. - cbshea02

The camper sites are wooded, but can be navigated with care. We had no trouble bringing in the 25' Outback and we are novices. Owners are friendly and accommodating; lake is beautiful in the fall and photographic opportunities abound. There are boat rentals and fishing, and swimming in the summer. Many sites have full hookups. The bathrooms with showers are at the camp store area, are clean and there is plenty of hot water. Our wooded site had full hookups, so nobody needed to use the outhouses that are sprinkled through the camping areas. They have stone fireplace rings at each site, and the camp permit dictates that fires be no more than knee height and be out before leaving them. It is a forested area, so care is required. We had a wonderful time. Site was rustic, clean and well supplied. Owners have created an excellent wooded camping experience. - SharonW.

We were looking for a weekend get away that was not too far to travel for us and a relative. We found Swanzey Lake Camping area thru an internet search. I could not find to many reviews but the web site looked OK and the lake area was inviting. We arrived on Thursday afternoon and the first impression of the campground was poor. The entrance to the campground had boat trailers parked all over the place, a disabled vehicle next to an old shed. The first appearance was a campground that was not kept up. After checking in we were given directions to our site. The roads in the campground were very narrow and rough, other campers had a difficult time navigation the turns. When we found our site we got out of the vehicle too look around. The site was a spot in the woods that had been filled with sandy fill and each time it rained our site (along with others turned to brown mud and the fill started to wash away. Trying to keep the sand out of the RV was a constant chore. The quiet hours were from 10:00 to about 8:00 am but they were not really enforced. This campground was mostly seasonals. As we walked around the campground we could often smell sewage, we could not determine where the smell was coming from. The web site states that they have a rec hall with games and a pool table, all there was is a porch with some games and a pool table that was in a tight area so it was difficult to use it. The only thing that was nice and kept up at this campground was the lake area. - wahooo

This is a good location for big rigs. Good access, clean. Laundry facilities located in the barn with the game room. Equipment was working well. Restrooms were clean. Chuck and Laura helpful with local recommendations. We were camped in a large open area. There is also a wooded area if that is your preference as well as tents sites along the river. DH was able to wash the coach and car. We would stay here again. The location is very peaceful. Negatives: there is no over the air TV access because of the Campground location. The pad where we were parked had some gravel. Because of the rain, the ground became soft and our jacks and tires sunk into the ground. More and thicker layer of gravel would be great. Our coach sustained dings when weed whacking was being done when stones were thrown up. Not good customer care. Thus the "satisfactory"rating for customer service. WiFi is present around the office/game room building.
Be sure to follow the directions to the Campground from the website. The Rand McNally directions send one down a road that leads to a cover d bridge and 3 ton maximum. - Char B

You need to get across the river from route 10 to get to this campground that lies at the end of Pine Road. Even our motorhome GPS (that knows our size and weight) tried to direct us over a covered bridge with 3 ton and 8-foot limits. The best bet is to follow the campground website's directions or to follow the small green campground directional signs that point the way to the bridge over the river. When we arrived, we found an extremely wide-open and spacious facility run by exceptionally friendly hosts. Our site was full-hookup 50-amp and all utilities worked well. There is no WIFI at the sites, although it is available near the office. About a half mile up the road from the campground is an entry to the Ashuelot River Rail Trail that provides a relatively smooth bicycle riding surface into the town of Keene four miles away. You can connect there to another rail trail if you are looking for more distance. There is a decent restaurant just north of the campground on route 10 and many other choices in Keene. - seeyajohn

Well-kept large park with helpful owners. Site for all types, from tents in the trees, spots along the Ashuelot River, and open fields for dish TV folks. Available utilities vary but our full hookup worked well except when the whole town of West Swanzey went dark after a bad storm. Game room in the office building. Verizon signal was weak. WiFi available only near the office. Get arrival directions from the office - mapping programs will take you to RV-impassible covered bridges (there are 6 in the area). Good grocery stores and shopping north on State Road 10. The Ashuelot River runs slowly alongside the campground. Swimming is encouraged, and catchable fish are rumored to be upriver. Canoes and kayaks are available for a fee. Hiking in the Dickinson Memorial Forest begins at the rear of the Campground; use bug spray. The well-maintained packed dirt and gravel Ashuelot Rail Trail can be reached by paved roads for biking or by hiking through the forest; road with covered bridge is 3 miles north and the town of Keene is about 7 miles away. Trail to the south peters out to a mud path through unmowed grass. See the very knowledgeable campground owners for details about the many hiking places in the area. - Mtmoi

Needed a last minute place for columbus holiday, and they had room. Water and electric, they do provide a service to dump for you 4.00. They have a dump station at the exit road. We were escorted to our site and told where to exactly set up in an open field. This meaning, follow the cart and he stops where he wants you and no moving to adjust. A first for us, a little confusing as we were not told how this works. It turned out ok. Lots of activities for the 3 day weekend, very fun. I would return again and found every one to be very friendly. Majority of the park was seasonal, but not at all messy and over filled with stuff in their yards. No antenna coverage, no cable tv and ok att coverage. Large library of dvds and books at the office, games and other things to borrow and exchange. Many good places to eat with in 10 min, and a lovely grocery store with great prices. When you are in the grass open area, you do not get a picnic table or fire ring. You share a post with your hook ups and water with 4 sites. So be sure to have a long water hose. A creek runs on one side of the campground. - hiker13

Great place except for freeway noise. All sites are P&E, most 30 amp. Lower level is a little quieter but still pretty noisy. Lots of grass, good dog walking. Good ATT service; no OTA TV, which surprised me. Marginal wifi. Very clean, well maintained. Small but usable laundry, decent showers. Nice folks, some seasonal sites. Follow website directions to avoid low bridge! - bobcovey

We have been traveling straight for 90 days and over 10,000 miles and have now stayed at lots of places. This, hands down, was the friendliest place we stayed. I asked for a pull-thru site, but the woman at the desk (I suspect the owner) put us in an end back-in site that she let us pull-thru. This backed (or fronted in our case) to a huge grass area that the playground was on the other side of. Site was all beautiful grass. The seasonal folks there were so friendly: chatting with us and asking me if I needed anything. In the office, they helped me find things to do in the area and gave my kids ice pops on the way out.
I would rate this a 9 1/2, only taking off because the bathrooms, though totally clean, were older and I opted not to shower there. I would 100% come back here if we are in the area again.
*** NOTE: Be sure to use their directions. The exit closest to them goes through a narrow 11' underpass.*** - 5th Wheel Family

Stopped overnight. Sort of off the beaten path but this park seems mostly catering to seasonal campers. This was our last night on a week long swing thru VT, NH ME and this campground was the most expensive and the least attractive we encountered. Our site was a pull thru that was pretty crowned end to end so it was difficult to level unless we unhooked, the site was like sand and deep from the dry conditions. Had it been rainy it would have been a mud hole. Roads are easy to navigate and people standoffish. For an overnight stay, OK. For a longer period, not so much. - gcd28

Electricity was good, water pressure was good and wifi was good. The park has many amenities some are good and some are in bad or non-maintained shape. The general condition of the park in terrible, no gravel on roads or sites. Many long term sites and some are maintained and some are a complete mess. We were assigned a back-in first that was real tight and then moved to a pull thru. After moving, a heavy rain storm came in and the first site had 3 inches of water on it. - hsvjim

It didn't start well - we arrived at 4:00PM and our assigned site was still occupied. After we set up in a new site we asked about cable tv. It's satellite tv and it's a $50 cash deposit for the box, but the lady in the office waived it since I rarely carry cash anymore. The site was OK, not a pull-through since there was a big electrical box at the back end. Laundry was one washer and one dryer in an outside shed, we went to the town of Hinsdale instead. There is also a pool that we didn't use. This is mostly a seasonals campground with a few unshaded transient sites, and the seasonals act like they own it. During the week it was OK, but on Friday the weekend seasonals arrived with their ATV's and partying well after midnight. We actually turned our AC fan on just for some drowning background noise. Saturday was a repeat of Friday, maybe not as noisy but it ran just as late. We left at 9:00AM Sunday, but when I tried to drop off the satellite box there was no one in the office. A call to the "24 hour" number went to voicemail, so I just left the box inside the screen door. As a side, as we were packing up one of the full-time seasonals actually apologized for the noise and stated he was getting a bit tired of the weekenders also. - mbopp
