We had a wonderful time hiking around the well marked trails and swimming in the lake. The sites varied in level but were fine for our little travel trailer. There was enough to do without leaving the campground for simple bike riding, hiking, and swimming. It is really nicely located for day trips to Plymouth and Cape Cod. Park Rangers were visable making the campground safer for the single camper. I would recommend this State Park to anyone for a simple trip or group rally. - sleepless

The staff was friendly and helpful and the campground was clean and neat. There appeared to be many things for the children to do. However, while this campground had many positive aspects, I would not stay here if you planned on a good night's sleep. We had loud parties late into the night on both sides of our camper, children playing and screaming at 11:30 at night-every night- and people cutting through our campsite-walking between our chairs- while we sat around the fire or at the table. There was incessant dog barking that never stopped, and loud music along with drumming-yes drumming- late at night from the cabins across the street. Could not wait to get out of there! - Charlie K

First visit and off season but we enjoyed the campground, glad we went. We were in the back section and our site was ok but it could have been a bit larger, had to park the truck in at tough angle. The hook ups all were fine and the neighbors were very friendly. It was somewhat busy for being later in October. The front section had lots of activities with many kids enjoying the bouncy pillow and playground. As we walked there are some really nice sites with plenty of room and some others that are just small. For some with lower trailers, the sewer hook up could be a bit uphill which would be an issue. All in all we are glad we went and will keep it in mind for future trips. - Happy Camper X2

We stayed here twice while attending family events (and visiting Maine in between). The park itself is very nice. Lots of woods & shade. Lots of kids, but still relatively quiet. An enjoyable place to stay. Both times we stayed in the wooded area at the far back area of the campground.
However, I 'd suggest you check your site before settling in. At our first site, the sewer connection was UPHILL from where the RV could be parked, making it unusable (since, you know, stuff doesn't flow uphill). During our second visit, there was no way we could level the RV ... there was just too much slope on the site. The motorhomes on either side of us were jack up so high that both front wheels were completely off the ground. Ours were, too, but there was still a distinct down angle toward the front of the coach. Enough to be noticeable. Next time we visit we'll stay in another part of the campground where the sites looked to be more level. - VA-Parrothead

If you own a dog, do not visit this park. There are at least two sets of pit bulls owned by permanent residents who attack other dogs regularly. I witnessed a severe attack and the owner of the victim dog was taken off his feet and injured while trying to defend his poor pet.
This is a relatively large campground with too many permanent residents. There are apparently no clutter limits at each site. At one site there was an old sofa parked outside as if it belonged. The roads are certainly accessible and most of the sites are level with adequate shade. Weekend activities load up the energy in the park for the kids. - LarryJohnston

We stayed here twice in summer/fall of 2014. First time for two months. Our site was very nice but in the middle of two roads. There are a lot of seasonal sites. Weekends and holidays were crazy busy. After Labor Day the place cleared out. We will definitely return as they are the best value the area. - Land roving

This place is okay if all you expect is a level place to park, decent water pressure and 50 amp service. WiFi is awful. If you do get it, it's super slow. You only have free access for 2 hours a day. There's pick up and delivery from the train station during the week. Very nice. Check in was chaotic. It was Labor Day weekend and the entrance was jammed. If you've got a big rig be careful upon entering between a large boulder on one side and the key gate on the other. No site escort. They should require the seasonal places to pressure wash and keep their places tidy. They are awful and gives the place a "hood" feel. I even saw a guy looking for bottles and cans in the dumpsters the first couple of days. Sites are grass, dirt and gravel. Roads are mainly dirt and gravel. The grass we do have needs mowing. An employee came out with a weed eater and cut a few weeds on the site next to us and left. The other sites and the dog area (about a foot tall in places) remained untouched. Tons of kids and roving teens while we were there. Cars parked everywhere. Some sites had 4 and 5 cars. Too crowded. The place did thin out after the holiday weekend and might be okay for a couple of days if you're just looking for a place to stay while visiting the city. Just don't expect too much. - AnnS

Very comfortable and spacious sites. They are dirt, so rainy weather could be problematic. Woodsy setting. Plenty of space between sites for use of fire ring and picnic table. Nice staff. Newly renovated large pool. It is a bit of a drive to the mid-Cape area. No problem with entrance road as cited by others. Renewed our interest in the Thousand Trails system. - RJ Massachusetts

The rate quoted is a Passport America rate. We stayed here because of the PA discount and the proximity of the campground to friends.
This campground is a former KOA (you can tell by the camp office building). It is gated, upon arrival you have to call the office via the microphone to gain access. You are then told to find a site, then come back to the office and tell them which one you took.
The road leading into the campground is paved, but turns into dirt. Upon reaching the campground, the gated main entrance is paved, but the remainder of the the roads are sandy dirt and full of pot holes. The area has a lot of trees and a sandy soil....which of course gets tracked into your rig.
The campground has full hookups (Water, electric, sewer). The is no cable. There is WiFi, at least close to the camp office where we were. It was capped at 1 Mbps and would frequently dropped out. Frustration led to us using the MiFi. Verizon wireless was 2 bars of 4G if I put my phone in the window. Otherwise it was 3G.
There are a good number of seasonal sites and park homes in the campground. We stayed in October, I was surprised to see the place about 75% full.
This was an average campground that could be so much more. The roads needed grading....we had a 2" rain storm while there which lead to huge puddles in the roads. The junk laying around the camp office could cleared out. The adult lounge looks like a construction trailer.
If in the area to visit our friends, we would stay here again. But that is the only reason. - cmgoeke

We were in a good site where mostly motor homes stayed but it was too dusty to be down in another section. There is an Adult Center close to where we stayed however it seemed there were some young adults who practically lived in the center. They were sleeping in their car and staying in that center all day. The people staying in the park were generally nice and friendly. It seemed like this park was understaffed in that speed limits were not enforced and kids and teenagers drove and ran wildly around the park. It is a big park and for the area, it was a good enough place to stay. - dldw1954

This park was one of the best we've stayed at. They have rows of seasonal campsites, some of which could use cleaning up, but if you stay in the area of the day campers, you will be fine. We had full hookups with 50 amp, and the spaces were very wide on both sides. The area has large trees, and it is a great camping experience. The staff is super-friendly and accommodating. They have a higher daily rate over the weekend (Fri-Sun). We could not get satellite TV because of the trees, but we were able to get 24 over-the-air channels, so we could keep up with the news and some of our favorite shows on network TV. They do offer Wi-Fi, and once connected, is fairly fast. It is close to Plymouth, and Boston is 1 hour away. - Ferdy

This is a gated campground with grass and dirt back-in sites that are plenty big enough for slides and awnings. The utilities at our FHU site worked well and we had good Wi-Fi and were able to pickup a few OTA channels. They have lots of activities for kids and a big playground. It was easy to get in and out of the park as was our site. Our only complaint was the barking dogs, the worst we have experienced in almost 4 years of full-timing. The park host warned them a couple of times but it didn't help much. I don't believe it is a regular issue, just a few campers that didn't care what others thought. The host are very friendly. We would stay here again. - dandg

Mostly seasonal campground with plenty of space available for daily/weekly/monthly campers as well. Friendly, welcoming owners are on-site, so any problems are taken care of immediately. Lots of activities for adults and children. Large, shady spaces, swimming & wading pools, rec hall for the many group activities offered, free fishing on private pond with no license required. Easy access to highways to visit tourist areas/attractions. - BootsScoochnBoogie

We really enjoyed being in pine trees with natural grass/dirt campsite again. Our site had electric & water & we were able to schedule a holding tank pump out mid week for an extra $20. This was a great place for sightseeing - Old Plymouth, Boston & Cape Cod all close. - licensedtochill

This campground is huge! There is a good mix of long term/seasonal and weekend/temporary campers. We were here over the July 4 weekend, and it was obvious this was the place for families to get away, and probably even some family reunions. There were tons of kids, not surprising since there is a lot to keep them entertained, but it could be loud at times. There were several scheduled events - a dance and a band while we were there, but we didn't attend. Our site was the most unlevel site we've ever been in. A good size, but still tight based on how were had to park and one random tree. Showers were reasonably clean, but did not feel very private, so we didn't use them. Overall, not a bad campground, just more "action" that we tend to like. - wanderfilledlife

Pinewood is a great place to stay while day tripping to the various attractions in the area, including whale watching visiting the Plimoth Plantation (yes, that's the correct spelling), etc. The campground is clean and well kept, with the maintenance staff continually on the move as they clean vacated sites, mow, and clean the restrooms. There is a nice swimming beach on the adjacent small lake, and fishing is allowed nearby. The sites a packed sand, and our full hookup pull-thru site was very level and spacious. The many tall pine trees made satellite reception a challenge, but doable. The power, cable, water, and sewer connections were centrally located, and easy to reach. There were numerous children playing during the day, but the campground was very quiet at night. There is a gun range and municipal airport nearby with occasional noises from both, but only during the day. Pine pollen and tree caterpillars were abundant while we were there, but both are just seasonal and beyond the control of the management of course. The Verizon cell signal was on the weak side but usable, and with our Maximum Signal amplifier turned on, data speeds were very good. The campground WiFi service is free for the first hour, but fairly slow especially in the evenings. We really enjoyed our stay here, and will return again in the future. - NYDutch

First time visitors to this campground. We were in the Charge Pond area A and half of the other areas were closed. I don't know if they open up more as the season picks up. The beach area at Charge Pond was nice. The water was clear, there was good fishing, and it wasn't busy at all. The campground was clean with sandy sites and that near the ocean kind of feel. There is about 20 feet of forest between each site. The kids enjoyed riding their bikes on the paved bike paths. Make sure you have a map and pre-plan your trip as it can get confusing without one. We were hoping to climb the fire tower but it was locked up. We would go back again, but it's kind of a long drive. Oh, the bathroom had a door that was left open but it didn't matter because there wasn't a screen on it. - B. P. Donelan

We camped here on a weekend where all sites were full, but found the Barrett's Pond area very quiet. Our site (J11) was small but level. Backing in was tricky due to a small incline, but I was able to do it on the first try. After exploring the park, I realized that there was only a handful of sites that were level enough for a travel trailer, and we clearly had the largest TT in the park. Park is more suited to pop-ups and tents. Firewood cannot be taken in or out of Massachusetts parks due to the ALH beetle, but firewood is reasonably priced. Bike paths made this dry camping experience worth it. 15 miles of paved paths; however, they are very hilly, and would be difficult for small children to pedal on their own. The College Pond swimming area is nice and has a small sandy beach and a place for renting kayaks/canoes. The weekend we were there, we arrived at 10AM and people had already begun placing belongings on all the picnic tables in the park. Guests can use the lake on a day pass, so there were many very large groups playing music and cooking all around us. The water was nice and the experience would have been better if it had been limited to camping patrons only. - Craig family

This is a great campground when you want to get back to nature. There are no electric sites and water is a very short walk. You are truly in a forest. There are many ponds to take a swim in, too. We have spent 2 different weekends there and have always had a good time. - User961
Jul 2011 - $45.00
Let me start by saying that this campground has tremendous potential. The grounds are very nice, mostly wooded and includes several ponds. Another nice feature is the bar that is located on-site that includes live entertainment on weekends. Now the negatives. The staff members that we came across during our stay were very rude! I think campground employee's sometimes forget that the campers are the campground's customers and without them they wouldn't have jobs. We found the sites to be very small and extremely close together. Upon setting up our travel trailer once we opened the awning there were literally tent stakes from the tents in the site next to ours under our awning. I'm sure there are better sites within the campground however they are few and far between. Last but not least ten dollars per person for friends/family to visit the campground is ridiculous. I would not recommend this campground and I won't be back. Stay away! - Mikeynas

This was a typical campground where the teenagers get very loud at night around the basket ball courts until 11 pm or 12 am. The sites are not very big at all. - v245059

This campground is not a place to take your family. It seems most people bring their kids here so they don't have to watch them. Teenage kids are walking around all hours of the night screaming and swearing. Seasonal sites are very run down. The "swimming hole" looks like something from an industrial park. The store was no bigger than our camper. There doesn't seem to be any rules either. People were setting off fire works from their sites at all hours. People at the camp site behind us were using campsite to take off tires, so we got to listen to an impact wrench and stare at a stack of tires. This is not what we were looking for in a vacation. It was more like being in the middle of a city. - caly

Good spot to do day trips to Newport, R.I., Martha's Vineyard, Nantucket, Plymouth and Cape Cod. Caters mostly to seasonal campers. Family owned and maintained. Staff were friendly and helpful. See homemade video located on webpage. Campgrounds do not quite live up to the video. An average campground. Very dusty during our stay due only to lack of rain. Campsites are right on top of each other and extra care is required to back into tight sites. They do not rent to campers older than 2002 because of the age. Humorously, lots and lots of rules. The sinks were push down cold water. - Mike from Bama

This campground is very clean and well kept; the staff are very friendly and helpful. The restrooms and showers are clean. It's very peaceful. There are plenty of choices for sunny or shady sites. There are a lot of amenities, including a large dog park. They are very dog friendly. We took advantage of their dog potty break service; at $10 per potty break for both dogs, we used it twice in 1 day while we did the Freedom Trail and a Red Sox game. We felt $20 was a reasonable price to take our dogs on 2 potty breaks and feed them. The sites are spacious and level with either gravel or concrete pads. Each site has a picnic table and fire ring. The WiFi was decent at our site. The only downsides are fires are only permitted between 6pm and midnight; and they are very expensive. Prices include 2 adults; the kids are $5 each per night. There is not much choice in the Boston area, and we were reluctant to pay this much after a poor experience last summer with an expensive campground. Even though it was very expensive for us and we don't need all of the amenities they offer, we would stay here again if we're ever back in the area. - Ursula A

Campground is large with 4 pools (1 indoor) & multiple laundries. Laundry was clean with multiple machines but a little costly; $3 to wash. There is an assortment of campsites ranging from pop ups to upscale class A's. They rent pop ups & cabins. There is a gate with a code to get in & out. There is a decent size store. There is even a concierge. They have a snack bar with a large menu. It is about 30 miles from Boston, mass transit is available. Cable & decent WiFi. We got satellite signal also. - Connie's Co-Owner

Lots for the kids to do. Scheduled games, activities, bike park, 18 hole Frisbee golf, bocce courts, sand volleyball, gaga ball, fishing lake, baseball fields, this campground has about every amenity I can think of except for mini golf and tennis! There is a cafe with a large menu, they even have treats for dogs! One of our favorite parts of the park was the HUGE dog park!
I would recommend this park for families and people travelling with pets to get the best value. This is one of our favorite campgrounds in the country. Our only negative would be unpaved roads. - 4RollingGs
