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. We camped at Northampton / Springfield KOA in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Northampton / Springfield KOA in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Northampton / Springfield KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

For a close breakfast stop, check out Outlook Farm, only a mile up on Route 66 from the campground. Lots of fresh baked goods!

Looking for Pizza? Pizanos was recommended by the camp store staff and was a solid choice.

If you are a fan of the poetess Emily Dickinson, a tour of her homestead and grave in Amherst should be stops to check out.

This older campground is family owned and operated. Not a lot of campers here this time of year so the park was fairly empty, quiet, and was set to close by Nov. 1. There is a small book exchange in the store/office; store was almost empty since they were closing. Pull through sites are located in the front area. They are long, level, and have 50amp. Other sites in the park are back in, with or without utilities, and located in the trees. We used this as our base for exploring this part of the state. Lots of restaurants, shopping, and exploring about 10-15 minutes away. We camped at Northampton / Springfield KOA in a Motorhome.

If you have the time, drive out to Stockbridge MA for a visit to the Norman Rockwell Museum. It is a must see if you enjoy his paintings.

I must say this campground is way off the beaten path, 8 to 10 miles from the freeway and not much around the campground. This was our first time staying at a KOA and I thought KOA was meant higher standards. This campground itself is run down. The roads are very narrow and could stand to have a few trees removed. It appears that they have had several wash outs as the roads could use a scrape. Once we arrived at our site 55 we had a fairly large site that was all gravel. The pedestal was positioned in the middle of the site. The power was adequate as well as the water pressure. The sewer was at the end of the site in which I needed to use 2 hoses in order to reach. Although they advertise WIFI, that is only available at the office. I guess I cannot forget to mention that why have rules when you do not make your seasonal resident abide by them. The rules say no motorized vehicles, yet several full timers have quads, motorcycles etc... We were given a gate key upon check in but every time we came back to the campground the gate was left open (even at 11pm). All in all the campground did the trick so that we could visit the Big E fair (40 minutes away). We will not return to this campground. We camped at Northampton / Springfield KOA in a Travel Trailer.

I'd give this park a negative rating if I could. Started with an overcrowded, dirty office and very slow check-in process. Fairly tight roads and turns to get to our site, but the site itself wasn't bad - until I plugged in the electric. We kept losing power due to low voltage. Maintenance initially blamed other campers running their AC as the problem, and then only made a half-hearted attempt to fix the issue. Office staff couldn't get their stories straight about whether or not any other sites were available (I was told three different things), and then to make things worse lied to me. Demanded a full refund and left that evening, never to return.

While I note that our particular site wasn't bad, others were extremely tight, to the point that I'd be nervous about opening my awning in fear of hitting my neighbor's rig. We camped at Northampton / Springfield KOA in a Travel Trailer.

This campground was chosen strictly for its overnight location. it's sites were very close and on either dirt or grass. Winding stone/dirt road to most sites. Although the reservations were made 4 months prior for 3 adjacent sites, the campground staff booked trailers between us. Also, at the time of reservation, we were told that there were no full hookups available and that we would be placed in the overflow area with e&w. We accepted that but upon arrival, there were several full hookup sites that could have accommodated us. Rain caused the campground to be a muddy mess. We camped at Northampton / Springfield KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We stopped here for an overnight on our way through MA. We stayed in a pull-thru site at the front of the campground. It looked like the 10 or so spots that are now pull-thrus were once the parking area. They have grass and gravel but they're pretty close to each other, with no trees, and the fire pits are at the back end of the campsites, which was a little awkward. We were eating dinner inside our camper while the neighbors sat practically below us by their fire pit. We could literally look down on them out the window. We didn't use the showers or restrooms so I can't rate those. The woman at the check-in desk was extremely nice and helpful. Our campsite was literally 15' from the office but she insisted on calling a man in a golf cart to lead us to our site (huh?). The rest of the campground is shaded and hilly, with about 1/3 permanent sites. There were a lot of activities for families and this would be a good choice if you had young children. We camped at Northampton / Springfield KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Level site and good services. Park has a lot of seasonals, but we were at the front in a pull-thru that was adequate in length. Only negative was dusty roads mostly from campground vehicles. Would stay again. We camped at Northampton / Springfield KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice park. Great pull thrus right up front. We stayed here once on the way to Maine and again on the way back. Our pups loved the Kamp K9. They were busy adding dishwashing stations. Nice to see a park that keeps updating their facilities. We tuned off the GPS and followed their directions without any problems. Nice stop off the turnpike. We will stay again.

We stayed here in a 40' motorhome for 6 weeks in July and August of 2014. We were very pleased with the park and location. Although this is the "Northampton/Springfield KOA" it is in neither of those towns. It is rurally located in Westampton approximately 20 minutes from each of those cities. The roads directions to the park are well marked with blue state RV Park signs so don't worry about being off the beaten path. The location makes a perfect base for exploring Western Mass. The park is a good mix of seasonal sites and transient spots. The staff was great. Very helpful, including the owner, who went out of his way to move a few reservations around to keep us on our site when we had to extend our stay for 2 more weeks. He literally spent 15 minutes at the computer to make sure he could accommodate us so we wouldn't have to shuffle to various other sites. The campground has a number of new, long , pull-through sites for big rigs near the entrance. We stayed at the top of the hill, in a level, shaded spot. The campground has a 5 MPH speed limit and security does enforce this so no speeding! The top of the hill also has a large field with electric and water sites but no sewer hookups. Lots of weekend tent and pop up campers. They do hold several concerts up on the field and had a skilled country cover band one evening. The showers and bathrooms near us were clean and well maintained. The large bingo hall/restaurant/ club was busy on the weekend. Lots of family activities that you typically find at a KOA. Pool, fishing pond, playground and a small dog park. There is an arcade with pool tables, air hockey and video games which is particularly appealing to teens. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Northampton / Springfield KOA in a Motorhome.

I agree with most previous reviews. This is a nice campground with a variety of wooded and open spots. Gravel sites are reasonably level, but the interior roadways are sand and dusty when dry. Restrooms are small and rustic but adequate. This family-friendly park has a nice pool and spa, very friendly and helpful staff, a snack bar and separate group camping area. This is our second visit here and we will most likely return. We camped at Northampton / Springfield KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

A very nice and clean campground. Staff was excellent and very helpful. Spots were level and taken care of, cable was crystal clear. We stayed for a week and would not have a problem staying longer. Would recommend to any one, from pop up to large Class A. We camped at Northampton / Springfield KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

It took us forever to get to this campground from I-91 and when we left it took us about 25 minutes to get back to I-91. That aside, the campground was nice and very well maintained. We were near the office in a back-in site which required a little leveling but no major issue. We like the gravel sites and the grass between each site. It looks like there are ample things for the kiddies to do here. The staff was very nice, although a little bit disorganized during check-in. We could see ourselves staying here again if ever in the area again. We camped at Northampton / Springfield KOA in a Motorhome.
