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

After turning into the driveway to enter the campground I was confronted by a NARROW concrete bridge. My MH is 46K pounds. Do you proceed? I did. We pulled up to the office building and my first impression was this place is a mess, with garbage piled up behind the building. We were here for just a stop for the night. This place is a stopover. if you plan on staying around the area and you have a family, keep looking. This place is fine for a stopover. We are fully self contained so we toughed it out; it was fine for our purpose. All the sites seem to be in a grass field. - Scooter & Crew

We stayed here overnight on our way to Acadia NP in order to visit the Yankee Candle Co. in S. Deerfield. The facilities were tired. We used the toilets, but not the showers. The office facility had a lounge area, but it wasn't at all inviting, and there were no supplies available for sale, as you might expect to find. The staff member we talked with had not been alerted to our reservation, but was friendly and accommodating. Our site was flat and easily accessible in an open field. There were quite a few seasonal sites tucked back in the woods. I would consider stopping here for a day, or so, to visit the local attractions, but only out of convenience. - Alhub

Basic campground with some seasonal sites. It looks like most short term sites are in an open grassy area with no size impediments. Other sites backed into tree line and had satellite dishes on poles (assuming seasonal). 20/30/50A at the pedestal and water, but no sewer. Site I was in needed nothing to be level. WiFi worked very well at our site but with occupancy I can't say what throughput might be like in the summer. Came late in the season and these were the only folks still open. Called in morning to check on availability, both call taker and lady who checked us in were very pleasant and friendly. - Trailbuddy

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.

We enjoyed our stay here. It is in the country and very well cared for. Management was helpful and friendly. Being close to the end of August there were not very many "transients" so we felt like we almost had the park to ourselves. Nice and quiet. If in the area we would stay here again. They brought us a picnic table upon request very quickly...a plus for management and service. - Esse

This is a nice campground conveniently located off of I-91. A bit too close, in fact. So close that the sound of the highway is constant. Otherwise we would have given them a 10. We were thankful for the access indications on their website, which avoided us a low bridge. We asked for a site with good internet only to find it broken down for the first three days of or stay. After that it was repaired and worked well. The campground's managers are camping there, too, and are available at all times and very helpful. The campground doesn'thave full hook- ups except by the highway, so we chose the W/E only option. No regrets, they have a bi-weekly sewer collection service at $4, very reasonable. The bathrooms and laundry are very nice, situated at the office's lower level. The office has a store and a lounge area. The whole campground is very well kept. Overall it is very good value. Grocery shopping is somewhat far but several small towns are around for restaurants. We camped for one week in a motorhome. - AandWK

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

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

Great little state park, known locally as the Goshen Ocean. When we arrived with our travel trailer I headed to several of the potable water stations located around the campsite loops. They were all very low pressure, timed push button, faucets that would be fine for filling a water canteen or jug, but not our fresh water holding tank. I decided to head to the dump-station hoping there was a potable spigot we could use. After looking at the campsite map, I didn't see a dump station. I headed out to the check-in station and asked the ranger. She informed me that their dump facility was about two miles away, next to the park headquarters office and maintenance yard. We headed over there, and quickly filled our tanks without issue from a dedicated potable water station adjacent to the dump station.
The restrooms and shower nearest to our site were fine. Clean, but aging.
While there, we took several hikes around the pond area, swam in the campers-only beach (which is located across the pond from the more crowded public access beach), and attended several of the children's workshops hosted at the Nature Center located within the park. - malsbury

We stayed here over Memorial Day weekend, and the campground was pretty full. Even so, it was nice and quiet. The facilities were clean, and the shower was very nice. We hiked some of the trails, and went down to the beach to check it out. Very nice.
This is the type of campground we like and we'll definitely be back.
The only gripe I had is that they had the fans in the bath house on high constantly, and it was freezing cold in there. I asked at the gate, and was told that it was to keep the floors dry. They did turn them off, but just for the rest of the day.
We'd definitely return.
Just one note, the dump station is about a mile from the campground at the park headquarters. Just ask at the gate for directions. - 2beagles

This year we canoed the lower lake and made it to the spill way where the kids enjoyed walking down the slanted concrete hill. The showers had awesome water pressure and plenty of hot water. We really enjoy this campground and look forward to it every year. I did ask about the location of the dump station and was given directions, as it was about 3/4 of a mile away from the campground. There is a general store off of the campground where you can purchase forgotten supplies. We will be going back next year. - B. P. Donelan

Very nice military campground. Quiet area with wide sites and clean showers and clean FHU's. Office staff very helpful with local attractions and base information. Call ahead as they do not take reservations. - boomerlee

This is a first come first served military campground. It is not a great campground either. Parking pads are concrete but entrance to site is just dirt, rocks and dead grass. Fire ring was overgrown with weeds and full of trash. Picnic table was useable. Bathhouse is strange especially the shower area. There is a big room in both men and women's restrooms. There is only a long bench for all three showers to use and absolutely no privacy before or after stepping into/out of the shower. The room is quite large and it seems that some sort of privacy could be arranged. The water does not taste great but the utilities (no sewer) worked fine. Verizon cell and hot spot worked well. The campground is not easy to find and we got an unfriendly feeling from the gate guard to the campground staff. There are several commercial business near the campground that were busy through most of the night. This is not up to the usual standards of most military campgrounds. We would not stay here again. - roadking

This park has some real potential. We stopped here for two nights on our way to New Hampshire, so the location was ideal for our route. When you arrive, you will enter the main gate, go through the traffic circle, pass the the gas station where you will turn left. This road will lead right to the campground. To echo what others have said, the camp is treated without a lot of care. We arrived on a Saturday after the office closed and chose a spot. We had to inspect three different sites since the first two were 50 amp service only and we are 30 amp. Sites are back in with water and electric only. We chose site 11 which gave us good TV antenna coverage as well as Verizon wifi. The pad was concrete and level with plenty of room for our 35 ft fifth wheel and truck. The big negative was the trash in the fire pit that seemed to have been there for some time. This could be a really nice campground, it just needs the attention. If passing through we would definitely stay again. - pfogleboch

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

I was with a group of four families that camped here Memorial Day weekend, 2009. This facility appears to be entirely run by an older couple who are in over their heads. The campground itself is nice enough, but the infrastructure is crumbling around them. Our first problem was with the pressure relief valve on the water faucet. It leaked like a sieve on my site and an adjoining one, and when I reported it, the solution was to hook up a “Y” connection with another site that didn’t have a problem. Good thing the neighbor was accommodating! The next problem was with the power. One in our party has a 36 foot Class A motorhome and their site had only 15 amp service! The solution was to again swap with someone who had a 30 amp connection. We were on their safari field and there were hoses and cords running all over the place. The roads in the campground were in deplorable shape with deep ruts and washouts, so you had to move extremely slow in order not to bottom out your rig or tow vehicle. The area near the dumping station was extremely bad, where we actually backed up and turned around our units, rather than having to traverse the affected area. We had a minor problem with our billing because a child over 5 who was supposed to be with us when we booked the reservation wasn’t, so we had $12 coming back to us. Asking for our refund seemed to be an imposition, and the owner was indignant that one of our party couldn’t make it because of a medical condition and wanted to know how she was going to get the balance owed! On the plus side, they had activities like cards, bingo and a DJ, as well as horseshoes and bocci, although the latter two I think were mostly pick up games with a group that appeared to know each other. The hayride advertised in their flyer never materialized and the pool looked like it was not quite ready for prime time with algaecide foam floating on the top. A point of interest is that they actually have the remnants of an old sawmill within their office/store/game room complex. Also a plus is that their rates were a very reasonable $36 a night for a holiday weekend. So overall I’d say that we probably won’t return due to the poor condition of the facilities and the attitude of the two people we had to deal with, who I assume are the owners. The overall attitude can be described as grumpy. If what I have described would not be concerns to you, then this place can be considered a good value. - grumpah

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
