This campground has large sites; however, restroom and laundry are treble and seldom functional. Employees act like watchdogs treat campers terrible. You can expect to go to the office every day to beg for icons to get through the gate to your camper if you're lucky enough to be going in when the office is open.Don't expect to be treated as a customer. Customers are treated more like bothersome beggars. - camper36687

I was the only one there and there is a reason. Run down, restroom a 10 minute walk away. Owners nice enough but not the brightest bulb on the tree. If you like solitude and a depressing atmosphere this is the place. They do have a lot of seasonals so a summer visit might be brighter. - burt

This is a great campground on lake Dean. Great activities for kids. Very dog friendly. Great clean lake. Clean modular bathrooms and showers. The only reason you wouldn't like this place is if you don't like lots of kids having a good time. - Traveltrove

Stayed for a weekend with our 2 grandaughters and 2 of their friends. Arrived and check in was completed at the gate, we never had to leave the MH. We were given a golf cart escort without asking, who took what appeared to be the 'long' way to the site, but actually took us the way that put us in the best position to back in. Staff and other campers were very friendly. It was a relaxed feeling right from the beginning. We were there for 'science' weekend, which was great for the kids (6,6,8 & 9). They created volcano's, made play doh, made slime and made some jars with paint & glitter. There was no charge for any of the experiments - which was great. They also each made a friend at the 'stuff a bear' event, which was an extra charge. I have to say that the staff - which included several young kids - was outstanding. They were very polite, paid a lot of attention to each of the kids, and were patient with even the youngest kids. I would absolutely go back to this campground. - rmbmrm

Great campground if you have kids although many of the seasonal folks seem to be retired. We used one of the transient sites, which were roughly half the park. Very nicely kept sites, the kids had a ball. Nice pool and lake, decent fishing. - padlin00

This is not a resort. Very run down after you pass the asphalt road in it turns int hilly gravel and dirt roads that are terrible in the rain. The site we were allocated was occupied and the alternative could just barely fit. sewer was uphill and difficult to use. No tv service and no wifi available. - flexitdriver

This is NOT a resort.
I understand why this park hasn't had reviews in 4 years. It is mostly permanents and seasonals. Out of all the well over 100 sites in the park, we only saw a handfull that looked to be vacationers.
Their website is grossly misleading. The entrance to the park is nicely paved and gives you an inviting feel. That is where it ends. Once you get to the gate, it is apparent that this place is not a 'resort'. The roads to the sites are gravel narrow and hilly.
As we arrived to our site, we were greeted with the neighbor playing very loud music outside as they stood around shirtless (men) at their PERMANENT outside bar! The overweight, hairy, old guy with no shirt is obviously the dress code here.
The 'game room' is very worn. The heavily stained carpet looks 20+ years old.
The pool is very overcrowded on the weekends because they allow locals to pay for use.
The golf course, oh my. Their website shows lush greens with well dressed golfers. It was nothing but yellow grass, not much bigger than a putt-putt course, and we only saw one group of players and yep, again, shirtless guys in flip flops.
This campground sort of served our purpose as we weren't looking for a vacation destination. But we chose it, even though it was far from our event, thinking it would be a safer choice when we left our MH overnight. That was not the case.
On the plus side, the quiet time is obviously strictly enforced. Even though many are partying all day, it is quiet at night and getting sleep wasn't an issue. During the week many permanents work and they aren't there.
If you are looking for an upscale vacation destination, this is not the place. Let me reiterate, resort is not what this place is. - Steve Hedge

The place is run down. None of the activities listed were operating because of shortage on employees. Full size pool was closed. Had a children's pool open. All outdoor games had equipment missing, therefore nothing to do. I pre-paid for 7 nights at trade show. I was told I could use these days anytime including holidays. Tried to book my last 2 nights on Labor Day: was told I would have to buy an additional night because it's a 3 night minimum stay. At the trade show I was specially told there was no restrictions or black out dates. I could split the days up as many times as I wanted. Obviously it's their way of making extra money. I will never ever stay, or recommend this place!
It's too bad they have to be so low because it's not only me they lost as customers, but all my camping friends as well. - Lmhersko

We booked site #39 online, based on proximity to bath house (at least, it looked that way on the map). No pictures of individual campsites on the ReserveAmerica booking site, so we were kind of winging it. We unexpectedly arrived at the campground around 10pm, after a long and grueling day on the road. The site (or what we could see of it) seemed nice, but was very unlevel, with a steep, narrow driveway. Combined with the winding, tree-lined loop road, there was no way we were going to be able to back into that site in the dark. We drove back to the camp office to hand our tag back in, ready to find a cheap motel for the night. Much to our delight, they had a pull-through site (#15), that had just been vacated minutes before we got there. So, we drove over to said site, and it was much better. We were able to pull in and get leveled relatively easily, even in the pitch-black. The site was very spacious, close to the bath house, and had a really nice view of Walker Pond through the surrounding trees. Again, we were only here for a quick overnight stop on the way home from Maine, but from what little we saw, this seemed like a nice little state park. Most sites were heavily wooded, and the pond is very pretty. Staff was also very friendly and helpful. Bath houses, were ok: roomy, well-lit, but quite old and a bit smelly. Don't think they are cleaned very often. Overall, this seemed to be a decent campground, and I wouldn't have a problem stopping overnight again if I'm traveling in the area. I would, however, opt for a pull-through site right off the bat! - Jenventola

Large sites with plenty of privacy. Heavily wooded campground with pines and hardwoods providing dense shade. Well maintained, paved roads with dirt/grass sites, some with wood chips. We didn't struggle to level but did have to jockey a bit to center awning between trees. Clean sites with special attention paid to providing clean fire pits and charcoal grills. Older but clean restroom. Plenty of friendly, helpful staff present throughout the day/evening. Park is staffed until 10 PM. Great value and location. We would definitely stay here again! - BDD

Park is a basic as you can get with no hookups, hence why I only stay here in a tent and not in my trailer. The bathrooms are older and small - I wouldn't shower in them but for restroom use they are fine. Site on the lake was very nice, plenty of space and plenty of privacy. I do recommend that if you go to plan ahead and look at the map closely. Most sites are large and have plenty of space however there are a few tiny sites that are low lying and are close to stagnant water. Overall it's a nice park and I will be back, I go here often. - A Chevalier

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

Very friendly staff. We stayed here 2 weeks, so the rate reflects the weekly rate. This campground is mostly seasonal campers, but it is in great condition. Sites were level, utilities worked well, satellite coverage was good (although they have cable at each site too), WIFI worked pretty good. They had LOTS of activities for kids and adults. We were here over the 4th of July and it was packed. They have about 250 total sites, but probably about 50 are for "transients". My complaints here would be the dirt/gravel roads put out a lot of dust to the point we weren't able to sit outside sometimes. Also close to a highway and you could here the traffic from that (not real bad but very noticeable). Overall it was a great experience here. The weekends were very busy and the weekdays were quiet. We would stay here again. Lots of little towns close by. - jacknpeg

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 place looks like it has finally closed as suggested in a 2004 post. Although it was open last year, all rigs are cleaned off from the premises and the web site telephone number is "no longer in service". Make way for some condo's! - jdkd123

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 were given a pull thru site that was so sloped we couldn't get level. Took us 25 minutes to avoid trees and rocks getting out of site. Clearance 6" at best. Do not try to take a big rig here. - Tembe

This is a rustic, adequate, quiet campground in a country setting that was perfect for a one-night stay while awaiting mechanical service. Camp hosts were most helpful and friendly in assisting us with a last minute reservation to address issue next day. It is a better fit for Class B & C campers. It is filled with seasonal guests in grass/gravel sites with a few sites available for transitory campers. Sites are grassy, not very level and some are very muddy due to recent rain. Full hook-up is available. There is a charge for WiFi. Nothing fancy here but lots a good will, friendliness, in a nice country setting. - Breezy2

First site which had standing water in it and was muddy had no power from 15A outlet. Checked nearby one and it was also out. Third site had power so moved there. Were just spending the night and mosquitoes were around so didn't venture about. No Wi-Fi at site. Was told it was available on porch of office but didn’t want the long walk or to put up with bugs so did without. No idea why they gave us only 15A electric as I noted the registration book showed lots of openings with 30A. Measured voltage and got 114v. Lots of seasonal but also a number of abandoned sites. Just in front of our site was a site that looked like someone just hooked up and pulled out leaving a damaged deck, sewer hose, wood and cement blocks around the site. This was not the only “abandoned” site I observed. Would not stay here again if I could find a more reasonable campground local to Worcester. Street address is 90 Manchaug Road in West Sutton, MA 01590. - Tireman9

I did not read reviews prior to booking here and probably best I didn't. We used this as a halfway overnight on our way to and from Bar Harbor Maine as there just weren't many options. It was easy to get to off I84, some low limbs on River road but manageable. Both sites we had were meant to have 2 trailers on. Luckily we never had to deal with that, because they would have been super tight. Overall this place is a dump. Wife and I walked it the first night we stayed. Seasonals everywhere, most are in poor condition at best. Abandoned RV's in the woods, equipment all over the place, their shop gate is always open, and what a mess that area is. The regular rate was $84 per night, I found a discount code and got it for $70 a night. Still way to much. Roads and entrance are tight. Oh, and the note in the campground map that says no air conditioners or electric heaters unless prior arrangements are made. Really? My prior arrangement was paying $70 a night to stay in this dump. On our way home at site 151 on a Friday night was met with a ridiculously loud DJ rave party on the patio that went from 6-10PM. I don't know how my 11 month old son fell asleep, the wife and I sure couldn't. This is not a destination campground. It's barely ok for an (expensive) overnight. - ferguson65

If you thought that this Jellystone Park is a serine, woodsy park, think again. This park is nothing more than a run down trailer park full of permanents that need to be evicted. We booked a pull-through full hook- up site to accommodate our 40-ft 5'er. What we got was a pull-through site, no sewer, no 50Amp, and jammed into a site where our slides were almost touching the slides in the next site. I will say that the staff did try to help resolve our problems the best they could. Don't waste your time or money here. - Rick Frazier
