At least 12 miles off the Mass Pike but the secondary roads are fine for a big rig. We were an overnite passing thru Mass. Doesn't seem like there is a lot to do nearby. 6 flags is 27 miles. They created new big rig sites last year and ours was an EZ in and out (97). We had shade and nice grass which was helpful because it was hot with a picnic table and paver fire ring. These were the high points. Our outside nice grass area was within 12' of a cabin. If it was occupied we'd be on top of each other. As it was mid week there wasn't a problem. Would be a great site if a family had a camper and others stayed in the cabin. 50 amp electric under 120 coming in on each leg so had to juggle what was on or off. It really struggled all night and one of our a/c units went out because of low power. Cable tv needed a call to the office. Someone had switched the wires. Go figure. We waited over an hour for someone to show. Wifi hotspot weak. Some devices could not connect and when one is on too long it throws you out even if you're not using much broadband. It happened just as I was writing this review! Upfront sites for transients are narrow, close and full sun. Way overpriced at over $50. Not many campgrounds or parks in the area that can accommodate big rigs. Would not return unless desperate. - Team Asphalt

New pull thru site, 90' long, made it very easy to set up. Campground is large, with a lot of activities, but in need of weed killer and a can of paint. Landscaping was , at one time, gorgeous but now choked out with weeds. Lot's of buildings for everything form game room to snack shop, but need boards replaced and painted, nothing dangerous, just not cosmetically appealing, even for being in the woods. Great shade, easy access to entire campground and decent sized sites. Weekend events were numerous and well communicated including a large event board at the pool so all would know what was going on. Kid events and family events.. we were there for Christmas in July and the park was decorated with lights and Santa made a stop to give out presents to the kids. - Bill VDA

So hard to to judge, because some parts of this park are great, while others need to be attended to. Great dog park and newer playground. Tired and worn bathroom/showers (though clean). Only one shower per shower house. Plenty of activities for kids. Interior roads need a fresh application of gravel. They really try with nice plantings and free nice kindling to help yourself to when you buy firewood. Constant clouds of dust near the front from the golf carts the staff and guests use to get around. We were in one of the pull-through sites in front - quite close together. There seemed to be something lacking in the work ethic of the younger staff.
One thing comes to mind as I think about this campground. I witnessed interactions between staff and the owner's youngish daughter (who speeds around on a golf cart all day with various friends). From her treatment of those she spoke to/at - can attest to where the breakdown in customer service occurs. In the service industry, attitude can make or break your experience. As long as you don't have much interaction with certain staff, you'd be fine.
All in all, if you are visiting the area, it's a fine choice to stay. - RoadAbode

We were part of a group so rate reflects shared cost. This is a COE campground. Campground is divided into two loops, Both or either loop can be reserved. Campground is located in a gorgeous valley bordered by a river with tubing & fishing possibilities. Steep entrance road but decently graded even after the previous weeks rain. Great place to relax, shaded and open areas, level campground. Campground is dry camping but has flush toilets with hot showers with one electrical outlet in field. - mdcamping

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

There were a few nice spots in a treed area of this park, but some of the sites face the back of Outdoor Rec, where you check in, and they are not very nice. Some of the sites were mowed nicely, and some, including the one I was sent to, were overgrown. The park was easy to find and not too far off the interstate. It was easy to navigate and park, and each site had plenty of space. There was a constant noise like a generator hum 24/7. There was no wifi, but good phone reception and lots of over the air TV. You can walk to a shoppette with lots of food items. Not the greatest bargain for water and electric only. Customer service was good. - KAP99

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

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

They just suffered a major flood, so some of the issues are a result of that. They did end up redoing the pool completely, so that is quite nice and brand new. The sites that are higher up in the park seemed nicer than ours down the hill. It was very wet when we were there and extremely muddy. Also very, very hard to back into the sites and our little trailer is just 19 feet total (16 ft body). Sites are pretty close to one another. The bathrooms are in serious need of updating. The management seemed quite friendly. The campground is less expensive than many in this general area of western MA. It has the potential for being a very nice campground. I would start with more concrete -- site pads, etc. to alleviate the mud situation since even if there is no flooding at any given moment, it rains a lot in this part of the state. - Gaius Gracchus

Nice place with a friendly staff. Clean pool, clean bathrooms, limited numbers of showers, sites near the office and house are very level, sites on the upper side are challenging to access. Only trouble is they are extremely limited in flat land due to steep mountains. Loved sleeping to the sound of the stream. - Freeman2004

We came here for a weekend. We had a site on the brook side. The sites were very nice, good size and level. Water on both sides. We went for a walk and there were a lot more sites up the hill, a bit more rustic but beautiful. The back of the fire pit was made from the natural rock emerging from the mountain. It was beautiful. The pool was small and the store was small. The people were very friendly. I don't remember WiFi or cable TV. - meister

We stood here in August for group events at both Six Flags New England and Lake Compounce. The staff was able to put myself and my friend together, in an unconventional way, since I needed FHU and he didn't. His site said that it had electric, but the electric came from my post. Thankfully, he only had a popup, and 20amps were fine. The facility was on the side of a large hill. Bathrooms in our area were clean, remodeled, but in an old bathhouse trailer. Showers were also clean, and cost 25 cents. I never have an issue paying for a clean shower. Staff was very friendly. My site was a bit unlevel on the roadside, but was fixed with on plank. I did have to place my unit by using my sewer hose as a guide, as the sewer connection was a bit of a distance away. All in all, I would stay there again if I was to go to both Six Flags and Lake Compounce in the same weekend. - ChooChoo Man

I read the other reviews but here is my take on this park. If you don't care about your paint your all set. Seems the town, that you must drive through doesn't trim trees wide or high enough for class A's. Not easy to get to. Narrow city streets, cable awful reception, low hanging trees, and we followed their directions! Rough dirt and gravel roads, and very narrow. Grass pull thru, not very level, no pad, Bugs galore. Never told ahead of time that there is an additional fee if you use your air conditioning. That was a surprise at check in. Next surprise, NO 50 amp service in the pull thru, only in back ins, and another additional charge for that! Wifi very weak. Just a weird backwoods kind of place. Seedy looking. Would not recommend or return. - THE DOC

Sodom Mountain is a very nice clean campground. They have a variety of sites available (field, shaded, tent sites etc.). This campground is a simple, no frills campground. We stayed for 2 nights so that we could go to the Big E fair. The campground is near Six Flags and the Easter Exposition Fairgrounds. We would return to this campground if we were in the area and wanted to go back to the fair or to Six Flags. - clw_man

This campground is terrible, very poorly maintained. From the entrance road which needed serious upgrading to the bathhouse, everything was in serious need of attention. The bathhouse was poorly maintained, three toilet stalls in Womens side, only one in working condition. It was dirty the entire time. The grounds were not well kept and the staff were not pleasant. We were actually repulsed by this campground and would suggest it be avoided at all costs! - eastman

This place was poorly maintained. The restrooms are filthy. The roads are full of large potholes. There are a lot of trees overhanging the road. Very dusty as some of the perm. campers "keep the road hot" constantly driving to the trash can etc. It is very overpriced for the money. Take my advice and keep going! - crackers

Southwick Acres is related to Sodom Mountain CG. SA is more geared toward seasonal campers with the number of what looked like rental sites being a small minority. There are a handfull of tent sites and 5 cabins available. The small single bathhouse also denoted the number of seasonal sites since seasonals have sewer. SA welcomes kids but they are not what I would call "kid friendly" as they don't have any activites planned, rather they allow cmapers to go to Sodom Mtn and participate in their activities. The camp store was also essentially non-existant. Had we only planned a camping weekend and not had our days filled with trips to nearby 6 Flags, it would have not been one of our better Memorial Day weekend experiences. All in all, it was an ok campground with friendly staff, hence the mediocre rating. - Nik

We spent almost a week there with the kids (ages 10-8) across from the pool area. This is a beautiful campground and we often saw the staff working to maintain it: mowing, weeding, cleaning the grounds. The pool was nice and warm and clean. (We saw owner cleaning and checking the pool every morning.) There was a nice large deck around the pool to sit with chairs, tables and umbrellas. There is minigolf (looked in decent shape but we did not do) and mining $5 or $9 per bag (we did, kids got nice gems) on site. There is a fishing pond and a boating pond. We didn't do paddle boats because it looked a little too weedy. Our site was a large pull through with water, electric and sewer. There was hair (from a human haircut) on our site when we got here, but when told, the staff was quick to go rake it up. The playground was in good shape. There were a few activities during the week and many on the weekend. They were well organized and well run by friendly staff. It rained a few days while we were here and we still had fun hanging out in the rec hall playing ping-pong, air hockey, wii, watching a movie (scheduled activity), doing puzzles, and eating from the snackbar. Staff moved up the dance from 7pm to 6pm because of bad weather, to give campers something to do. DJ was friendly and kids had a blast. Pizza was good and other items were reasonably priced. We all loved the Sunday breakfast buffet. Ladies showers need a little updating but the rest of the bathroom was obviously recently renovated. Close by we visited the Granville Country store (GREAT cheese) and the Gran-Val scoop (ice cream and a few farm animals to feed and pat). Overall one of the nicer campgrounds we have visited truly due to the staff. We will definitely return after we get the truck tuned up and brakes checked. The hills on the way to the campground were long and steep! - Itsatrip

Bathrooms were small, old/dirty, soap dispenser was empty often and paper towel dispenser was broken for 3 days! They advertised mini-golf, but we learned that it was staffed only on the weekend, and closed at 1 PM. Paddle boats advertised for use on pond were locked up and staff not available on the holiday weekend to unlock and clean for use. Many unsupervised kids roaming the camp grounds. Went to do a craft activity on a rainy day, and staff would not set up an additional folding table for us, but rather expected our family to split up to different tables with available chairs, not very friendly or accommodating. We camped next to a cabin on the pond that was allowed to set up multiple tents at their cabin, which made for many people at one site, and blocked our view of the pond. We would never return to this campground. - new_camper

Pros:overall, seems like a nice, well-run campground. The free Wi-Fi worked well. The pool is nice. It does not allow kids to swim without parents and has adult swim hours. The two ponds are fun places for kids to catch minnows and salamanders with nets (we were told there aren't many bigger fish though). Cons: we were near a group of cabins where a large group was staying, which meant loud music and a lot of noise. Also, there were a lot of unsupervised teens and pre-teens who were often hanging out at or near the playground, which made for an unpleasant atmosphere for little kids. The bigger kids were standing in the baby swings, using foul language on the playground and leaving trash there. Each time we went to the play area, I had to pick up several pieces of trash, including crushed cans, ice cream sticks, etc. There are plenty of trash cans around the play area, so it's unfortunate that campers can't be bothered to use them. - ctcampers

This is a family campground with most of the sites filled with stored RV's. We were there midweek and in the last of the off season. There was no activity in the camp while we were there. It is located in a rustic setting and not worth the drive as an over night location. It is about 8 miles from the nearest exit of I-90 ( Mass. Toll road). We used it as a base to visit Springfield. We used our C2C membership. They have a small general store and a number of planned activities if you stay there in season. The pool was very clean. WIFI is not free. No CATV. Local TV reception is weak to none. - A hitch and hop

Ok park for an overnight, or if you aren't looking for ambiance. Weed and gravel back in sites for big rigs that either overlook office/pool or maintenance building. Seasonals in park are full of mold and mildew, but are out of sight to big rig area in front. No antenna TV except for 2 channels, not able to get satellite TV reception due to trees. Sprint hotspot had no reception. Sprint phone service very spotty. Close proximity to Stockbridge and other Berkshire attractions. Possibly stay here again if only overnighting. Rate is PA. - Mnvb

Worst campground I have ever stayed at. Everything terrible from nasty pool to foot high grass sites. Should be $10 a night not $40. I do not even recommend it for a overnight stop. - bbabmbbb
