Ridiculous price if it weren't for the slight proximity to the ocean. Our awning touched the back of the RV next to us and they were quite small! Very crowded with tent campers, so many trees, we had scratch damage and no satellite. Not a friendly staff and very unlevel gravel site. People next to us had no sewer and begged to use ours. Would not return or recommend for any reason. We camped at Black Bear Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This was by far the worst campground we stayed at this year. Pool does not open till 1pm. NO activities for kids or families. You are on your own. Quiet campground...does not sell out or even come close to that because of the lack of anything. Bath house is clean. Showers clean. Campground tried to charge my family, 4 members, to come in to check if I was there that weekend. Wouldn't even let them in to check. Campground has a Warden who harasses those staying. Stay away. Check the State Park at Salisbury instead. We camped at Black Bear Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This campground needs new management. They are rude and not at all helpful. We arrived to find our fire pit full of garbage. We camped next to our son. His electric did not work properly and the campgrounds answer to fix was to call the power company. The sights were nice but sure needed grooming. The pools were small and was full of leaves. Don't think I would go back. We camped at Black Bear Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This park has potential with right managers. There is nothing to do in the park. No rec or activity schedule and while I was there the majority of the time it rained. Seems to be mostly seasonal people. Pools are very small, deceiving from their website. They are also only open 1-7pm which is unacceptable. I could understand if they had a lifeguard but this is not the case. Also no camp store so everytime you need something you have to leave. The laundry facility is in a trailer and the showers you have to pay for. Also no urinals in the mens bathroom. Sites are spacious but all covered in large wood chips. Even with a mat over them they poke you in the foot. No garbage pickup that I was aware of, but the dumpster area only had one over filled dumpster. Not a bad campground just to park your rig at, but I don't think I would ever go back We camped at Black Bear Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice place to park. Pool is only open for six hours. (1p-7p) This is unacceptable. Not much to do unless you leave the park. Area beaches very nice. Close to Kittery, ME. We camped at Black Bear Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Small sites in the sun. Two unclean small pools. Hours open 1-7 even though weather was over 90 degrees all day. No urinals in men's room-unsanitary. Rude uncaring employees. No quiet hour. No supervision of the playground or equipment. Playground in direct sun. Constant traffic on large gravel and sand roads. No recycling. Garbage picked up at 4 AM, loud trucks. I-95 nearby. No free shuttle to beach as described in brochure. Area is very nice, Hampton Beach is great, just don't plan to spend much time at the campground or don't plan to sleep. We camped at Black Bear Campground in a Tent Trailer.

We camped here three years in a row, and each time we ask ourselves why we keep coming back. The staff is so rude and uncaring, and not very helpful at all. The old guy driving in a golf kart was continuously yelling at the little kids, when confronted by an adult he would step off. The pool is only open from 1-7 and when we returned from the beach and wanted to keep swimming we could not, even though it was 90 degrees outside. The advertised shuttle to the beach takes an hour even though the beach is a 10 minute drive. There is no camp store on site, and have to leave to get anything. The game room is old and out dated and needs a serious upgrade. Showers should be free, are $ 0.50 for 5 minutes: unacceptable! If not for its close location to the beaches and other attractions, we would never camp here AGAIN! NEVER! It's not the campsite that is bad, I believe that it is the management.

We visited Black Bear Campground in Salisbury, Ma. July of 2005. The Campground was very clean. The lots were spacious and level. The whole campground looks very modern, and well kept. A large playground for our children to play. Two pools and a nice reck hall. We really enjoyed our stay and would return again. We camped at Black Bear Campground in a Travel Trailer.

I have been at this campground several times over the past five years. I have noticed some negetive reports on this site that do not match this campground. There is a Blackbear Campground in NY so I think some people may have them confused. This campground in Salisbury, Ma. does not have a junk yard and is not near New York City. It has nearly 200 sites not 145. I find this campground very inviting and close to the ocean. They have lots of trees for shade, great new play area for the kids and every thing is always nice and clean. When making your reviews please make sure you are in the right State, Thank You. We camped at Black Bear Campground in a Motorhome.

This campground is fairly new but has not been maintained. Bathrooms are dirty and look like they have been there for many, many years. Campsites are not level and there is minimal privacy between sites. Will not stay again.. We camped at Black Bear Campground in a Motorhome.

This could be a decent campground if they had better electricity. It was 90 degrees when we were there. We paid extra for 50 amp service. The voltage was so low we couldnt use the A/C. Roads were gravel. Sites were gravel and mostly level. There were a lot of trees, but a big rig should not have too much trouble getting around. There were quite a few seasonal/permanent residents. We would not stay there again because of the bad electricity. We camped at Black Bear Campground in a Motorhome.
