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

This KOA chooses not to enforce its own rules. I contacted management, and they were nothing but apologists for the bad behavior of the known rule breakers. Plan on being woken from sleep many times at night, due to Harley riders revving their hogs, then speeding through the park at night, even after the 11 PM "quiet hours" cutoff. I was told that if these individuals were excluded "all I'd have left is a bunch of Priuses and tents." I was told that 20-25 campers have Harleys every year on Labor Day weekend, so nothing will be done. Everyone deserves to enjoy their camping experience, but not at the expense of others. There are plenty of parks in this area. Pick one where your peaceful enjoyment is a priority. - Pdx discovery

This is like 2 different campgrounds. Last year we were in the back section which was fine but away from everything. This trip we were in a backin site in the front section. We were right in the middle of the activities. Since our grandson was with us this worked out great. We were near the jumping pad, ice cream social, train rides, mini golf and pool. Our location made it real nice. Wifi was good as were the hook ups with great water pressure. We found the campground to be extremely quiet and enjoyable. Staff was great and friendly but could do a little better cleaning sites as our fire pit had trash in it when we arrived. Unfortunately for us it is bee season and they swarmed the site when ever we were going to eat or someone opened a soda. We had to eat a few meals inside to get away from them. This is a nice campground for a quick getaway. - Happy Camper X2

We stayed here for 4 nights visiting family in Taunton and touring Historic Plymouth. Quite a large campground. Our site was very spacious and in a nice part of the campground. We had a private patio, with table and chairs plus our own swing (glider). Although we only have 30 amp, the site was equipped with 50 amp. Water, sewer, wifi and cable included. We would stay here again. - Jack 1939

We had a group of 4 rigs in the Pull Through, PT 14- PT23 section. These sites are larger than most of the rest and we had good satellite service. We had no problem with large dogs and the owner told us the person that had the pit bulls (see prior review) was not a permanent or seasonal. The park is large and has a large number of campers. We used the limo to and from the train station and they never failed to pick us up. We would return IF we could get a site in that section. Most of the other sites are too small for a 40' rig and are surrounded by many trees. We had good 50 amp service. - johnwadams

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

Nice Park as others have said the surface is dirt but plenty of shade cover. All sites are full hook ups and have 50 amp service. WIFI with Verizon was average but you can get by with it. Road into park as stated is part gravel and was very bad, pot holes everywhere and rough. Park is central to allot to be done in thew area from day trips to Boston or out to the cape. Also we did day trips into Rhode Island from this location. Apart from the road we enjoyed our two weeks there and will go back in the future. - M5Adventures

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

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

Busy campground. Large sites, albeit muddy when it rains. Friendly staff. Friends staying in cabin were disappointed with small size odor. Wifi very slow. - Maltaman

The park was pretty tight and we didn't get to see or use the whole park because we travel with our dogs and half of it is closed off if you have dogs. On this trip we had 2 other adults staying with us and they charged us an extra $40 a night ($20 for each adult). This was a bit much but it was on their website and I must of missed it when I booked us. - AudiG

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

Giant state park with a nice network of hiking paths and paved bike trails. We stayed at the lower end of Fearing Pond at site H9. We chose the Fearing Pond loop after reading other reviews that mentioned the main Charge Pond camping area had a reputation for being a little rowdier and noisy, even after quiet hours. For the most part, the Fearing loop was quiet, but the campsites are very close to each other with no vegetation or cover between sites. This also means that it is easy to hear conversations of campers at nearby sites.
Our site was an easy walk to Fearing Pond, where there was a nice, small beach. We were told over the phone that no non-marine-grade flotation devices were allowed in the water, but many families brought inflatable floats and appeared to use them without trouble. There are no kayaks to rent on-site, but there is a rental place a few miles away, with the guideline of renting for no less than a full day, and transporting it to and from the camp on your own.
There were multiple potable water stations and dump stations located on a loop behind the check-in station, for easy fill-up/dumping on the way in or out of the park. Additionally, many potable water stations were located throughout the loops in the park. - malsbury

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

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

We loved our October stay at Normandy Farms for "Spirit's weekend"! We have camped here a number of times over the years and always have a blast. It is pricey but well worth it. The kids, 10 and 8yrs, always meet new friends and play all day long. They love the Gaga ball and the bike park. We highly recommend the halloween weekends! We have many memories here are are so grateful to Normandy Farms. We stayed for the Taylor Swift concert last summer and will remember that forever. All the sites are great and the grounds are impeccable. Patriots place is great to visit even when there are no events happening. Highly recommended! - Howls_Castle

A quiet, heavily wooded campground. The road (MA 1) to campground requires a lot of caution for a big rig - trees inadequately trimmed, narrow, winding, and potholes. Interior roads are asphalt and gravel with adequate width. Sites are mostly level gravel and long.
Power ok, did not use other utilities. T-Mobile 1-2 bars LTE with reasonable speed; Verizon 3 bars LTE with reasonable speed: campground wifi ok signal strength with good speed but campground was less than half full. Satellite access problematic due to the number of trees. Full single stream recycle on site. Ok road bike riding in campground, no road bike trails adjacent to campground.
We would stay here again when in the area (for an overnight or a longer stay). - SeaLandSkyPhoto

This is THE park to stay at in the Boston area. The sites are gravel with a concrete porch, and very roomy. Laundry facilities are very clean with front load washers and large dryers. This park is packed with amenities. It is a well run park, staff are very nice and helpful. Weekends are very busy here, and the park is usually full with lots of activities available for everyone. They can accommodate any size rig that you have, and even have a beautiful area for tent camping. Pets are allowed, no size limit, and must be kept on a leash. There is even a dog park for their enjoyment! We camped here from September to October in a 35 ft. travel trailer. - MGR58
