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 camped at Northampton / Springfield KOA in a Motorhome.

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.

The park was ok. I stayed one night while on the way to another location. The tent site I was on was located deep in the middle of a ton of seasonal trailers. I was surrounded on all sides by them. Thankfully it was the middle of the week, & no one was around, or it would have been pretty miserable. The park did have a small dog park which was nice but honestly, I would have preferred a more open site rather than the congested, shady one I was in. Fencing around the dog park was not all that secure & a small dog would have/could have escaped. I pointed this out to the owner & offered to show him where, & he said he didn't need to see where it was which to me as a dog owner concerned me because on a vacation the last thing I want to do is spend time searching for a lost dog. I can see, though, that for someone in a trailer with kids it might be a nice place. We camped at Northampton / Springfield KOA in a Tent.

After reading the previous two reviews I needed to check to make sure I stayed at the same campground. Although the pull-through sites are a bit narrow, I've certainly seen narrower. The back in sites seemed roomy and many are in decent shade. The park is well-maintained, the staff is friendly and accommodating. There are all sorts of scheduled activities for kids, including rides on a fire engine and a tractor-pulled wagon. Yes, the campground is in a rural area -- it is, after all, a campground. Using Springfield in the name is a bit of a stretch, but it is 20 minutes from the center of Northampton. Signs leading to the park from every direction are plentiful, and anyone following the directions provided on the reservation confirmation shouldn't have any issues getting to the park. Wi-Fi worked well, and the cable TV is adequate. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Northampton / Springfield KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We chose this as an overnight. Bad choice. First all this CG is very hard to get to. You have to drive on some narrow roads through the middle of some small towns. They say they are in Springfield but that's a stretch, as it could take an hour to get here. Very old park with lots of seasonal/permanents. Very tight pull throughs. This park just isn't up to KOA standards. Unless you want/ need to be in this area, I don't recommend staying here. We camped at Northampton / Springfield KOA in a Motorhome.

To say that this was an uncomfortable stay is an understatement. This campground has a very unprofessional staff and ownership. We found out quickly that the "seasonals" are the staff members that work there and if you're not part of their "click" you are treated with a cold shoulder. The staff drive their golf carts very fast through the campground and were seen with beer in their hands while driving. They are very unfriendly and during one incident yelled swears at my kids. If you enjoy being stalked and spied on this is the place for you. The staff drive by constantly and strategically placed their "seasonals" in various locations of the park so that everyone is under constant surveillance. The grounds themselves are not bad and they are doing some positive things to improve, such as the new play scape near the pool. If they fired all the staff and sold the place to a friendly family this campground would have real potential. However as it is now I highly recommend looking elsewhere for a family friendly campground. We camped at Northampton / Springfield KOA in a Travel Trailer.

The Good: Park is more reasonably priced than some in the area, and they did have 50amp electric. (Entire cg power blinked off once, but only momentarily. Enough though for us to have to restart both our computers). And the "safari field" was nice enough: up on top of the hill but nice with grass and a few trees. The Bad: There are lots of small, narrow roads to drive to get to this cg (typical New England I guess). The cg is basically on a hillside, so be prepared for uphill/downhill driving, and the roads are dirt and rough as reviewers have said, with some tight turns. Only a few sites have sewer, and I think those are 30amp sites. If you want 50amp, you will not have sewer! And one weird thing: even though I signed us up for a pull-through site, and they had lots of them empty, the gal at check-in was going to put me in a back-in site. I heard her do it to another person to. Not sure why. But another guy here knew I'd also asked for a spot with a shot at satellite signal, so he put us in a different site: a pull-through! So thank you to that one guy, (and not sure about the rest?!) We've now stayed at two cgs in Massachusetts, and I can't say we've been impressed with either one! But it seems the only cgs they have in this state are either so-so, slummy or way too expensive! So, in the future, we may just avoid Massachusetts.

The staff was very helpful and the seasonal campers were very friendly. Had a rain storm one night and the staff was out regrading the roads. Very nice pool. Had a bear walk through one night. Very wooded campground surrounded by corn fields and dairy farms. Kids in the campground loved the firetruck rides around the campground. We would definitely stop here again.

Price reflects 4th of July holiday weekend, with full hookups. I think everybody looks for something different in a campground. This one fit us perfectly, we will definitely return. First, some cons: The roads are pretty rough, showers were small, and the "WiFi" wasn't reachable from our campsite. As far as cons go, that was about it. Our entire stay was extremely enjoyable. The route to the campground was very clearly marked starting almost 8 miles out (which in my experience is unusual), and the roads inside the campground were easy to follow. No trouble finding our site. Our site was very easy to back into with plenty of room, and was relatively level. The sewer drain was mounted pretty high off the ground, so bring sewer hose supports. The site was deep, so we had plenty of room. I would definitely call this a "family" campground. Kids were EVERYWHERE, and ours had no trouble making friends. I'm sort of glad the roads are so full of potholes, slowing down the traffic. I've been to "family campgrounds" before, but never one with this many activities. They had more things planned in a single day than other places we've been to plan all weekend. They also plan occasional day trips: the Bronx Zoo, and a Connecticut beach were on the list. It was pretty much non-stop, sometimes with more than one choice of things for the kids to do. The variety was good, too: a pancake breakfast, scavenger hunts, arts & crafts, fire engine and tractor rides, a bounce house, bingo AND karaoke, etc. Staff was almost ludicrously friendly. KOAs are known for friendly staff, but these folks would take the cake. Free showers, discounts on Six Flags tickets, no charge for guests, and a decent pool all rounded out the picture. We will definitely return! We camped at Northampton / Springfield KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Campground is average at best. A lot of seasonal sites and roads need some work very rough with lots of golf cart usage. Bathrooms were clean but cramped; free showers were a bonus. Staff was polite and very attentive and friendly. We camped at Northampton / Springfield KOA in a Tent Trailer.

Friendly managers at this campground set in pleasant surroundings. Shady, level campsite and clean amenities block. We stayed here for two nights so we could visit the Hancock Shaker Village at Pittsfield. We camped at Northampton / Springfield KOA in a Truck Camper.

Price reflects KOA discount since they are now a KOA. This is the worst bathroom setup I've seen, with no room inside, only one shower and all pretty exposed. The campground itself was otherwise just OK, typical close together commercial campground spaces with a reasonable playground and swimming pool for the kids. It was a reasonable distance to the Hartford, Conn airport to pick me up and drop me off to get back to work. We camped at Northampton / Springfield KOA in a Travel Trailer.
