We opened the park (literally, we watched the ranger open he chain gate). For that reason there were things that were not quite ready. Cleanup was still happening, not all sites were open. Not a big deal. The nice part was having the whole park to ourselves. One other camper came in just as it got dark. The bathrooms were clean. The showers were not very good. The shower heads were 90% clogged up and sprayed everywhere other than where you needed them to spray. The trails & views were great, and it was very quiet. I plan on coming back during the middle of the Summer to see how it is during the busy part of the season. There is only one bathhouse open for the 2014 season, so it might get a little dicey for those who visit during the busy times. We plan on staying here again next year on opening weekend. - BigNuge

The park is not really set-up for RV's, even small ones; the road inside the camping area is very narrow in spots because of trees. The road to the campground has a small bridge with a weight limit of only 2 tons. Apparently the 2 ton limit was recently imposed. Our rig is 5 tons, we had to back up when we encountered the bridge. Couldn't locate a park employee anywhere but did run across a state policeman who said he didn't know about the limit but that log trucks went across the bridge all the time. The park map seemed to indicate that there was a back way into the campground; unfortunately the road was blocked right before entering the campground -- more backing up. After talking with the policeman again, we went over the bridge into the campground where the manager said he didn't really know about the weight limit (the signs had gone up only a couple of weeks earlier) but that big trucks from the lumber companies, the trash trucks, and heavy vehicles used the road all the time. The bathrooms were OK but the showers were not clean - one stall had a pile of cigarette butts and an old beer can on the floor. There was a $15 charge for using the dump station. We were not impressed with this campground - liz&denis

When we pulled into this park the manager and a young man were standing outside the store talking. The sign said the office to check in was up some stairs. I was limping from sciatica but went up there to find it locked. I came back down and the lady said she used the store to check people in now. Don't know why she didn't tell me when I walked by her, especially since she handed me our paperwork when I got to the desk. Anyways, there are a ton of trees and poor to no antenna reception and no cable. Wi-Fi cost extra. There were a ton of kids on golf carts with loud radios and noisy trucks and way too much traffic going past our site all the time. The site was very wide and level and had 50 amp, water, and sewer but I still would not go back there unless absolutely necessary. In all fairness though, it isn't too far off Hwy 101. - Ginny H

We checked Woodalls and Passport America books and saw nothing telling us this place can NOT handle a Big Rig. While traveling we called their reservation number. It's in Florida and the people there don't know the park. At the park, the one office person was unqualified. After a lenghthy checkin he guided us into the park to our site. What a huge mistake! The paved road turned into a 8-9 ft. road through a forest of uncut low hanging trees. I was forced to continue through scratching the rig. Some large branches were a my eye level spanning the road. When he got me to the site there was no way to maneuver into it. I asked for a better site. That was worse. I said I wanted out of this forest and a refund. I had to continue further through trees to get out. He could not arrange the refund. I spent a half hour on the phone with the Florida office trying to get my refund. The office there was incredibly inept and I still don't know if I have my refund. We had to leave and stayed in a Wal-Mart lot overnight. Also while in Pine Acres, I overheard someone call the office saying they had been robbed there. Definitely AVOID this park. There was no free Wi-Fi either as advertised in Passport. The $20 was a Passport price. - Sunluvr

I've read some of the other posts and wanted to validate them. Those that said this is NOT a family park are correct. This campground unfortunately is a party zone. It is not a place for children unless all you want your children to see are beer drinking, tattooed, smokers EVERYWHERE. This is not a quiet park at all. The park often smells of sewer in the mornings. The seasonals think they run the place and they do. They do not observe quiet hours. The bathrooms are "eh". Golf carts, motorcycles, and pickups drive way to fast for all the little ones running around. Lastly as the other poster mentioned, yes, there is a man that chops wood in a speedo at 1:00 a.m. I will not return, nor will I recommend. I am posting only to save someone else from experiencing this. - plum

This campground is in a wooded area with lots of trees immediately off the roads on both sides of the winding roads to get to your campsite. Although the park advertises it has big rig access, this is a lie. The trees are so close to the winding road that big rigs cannot make it through without hitting some trees. I damage a window awning. It also only has 30 amp electrical hookups and not 50. I will not be back with my 40 foot motorhome. - F_Jecks

We stayed here for a week while visiting our son and his family. The campsite we had was very nice size surrounded by trees. We did not like the excessive extra charges for visitors or visitor parking. The seasonal sites were somewhat of an eyesore. We did not use their facilities except for the restroom. I would have preferred a little better campground but all told it is not overly bad. - Dewey Smith

Excellent park, big sites many seasonal but well kept up. Roads a little narrow but one way so no problem. Very friendly and helpful staff. Easy to find. Would stay here again. - ttalbot

We stopped here primarily because it was a Passport park. New owners, very friendly. Chatted with them for about 15 minutes. As new owners they tried every site that was available to check them out for livability. Wifi was available but limited to around the office, even with a booster I couldn't get wifi and we were across the small lake from the office. Too many trees for satellite.
When pulling away from the office you need to negotiate between 2 buildings, a little tight but doable. - Wandering

This is a small park arranged around a small spring fed pond. The pond is stocked with trout and a fishing license isn't required. There also is a sand beach area and a nice adult area with seating and a fireplace adjacent to the pond. New owners had taken possession the week before we were here. everyone was extremely helpful and friendly. We were guided to our site and they helped us get settled in. Few sites have sewers. Good water and power (50 amp) at our site. The campsite had a picnic table and fire ring and was reasonably level. Not much chance of getting satellite TV because of the trees but there is a good selection of over the air TV. They have free WiFi which works well. Verizon service is 2 bar 4G. The maneuvering room is a little tight. We were only here for a day but easily could see returning to spend a week or two. - BobWW

another pleasant stay at Saddleback. Hosts could not have been nicer, site was great and the campground was very quiet mid week. This is our "go to" quick get-away from Manchester for a little R&R, never disappoints. - pugdad

Based on the questionable previous reviews we went. Apparently only one site is used for non-seasonal campers. There is no sign save for 18x24" hand written corrugated plastic cards sticking in the ground near the road. The office was the second clue about the deteriorated nature of the campground. The site was littered but OK. The electricity was four 15amp plugs (no 30 amp). Only two worked giving only 104 to 105 volts with the A/C on. This caused an automatic safety cutoff. Checking the next site I found no power at all. Power was being brought in by ordinary orange extension cords from the next site. Same across the way. Voltages measured around 108/109 no-load and 105 to 102v with load. Looking around it was clear that the manager had long-term problems with camp electricity. He could not offer a site with 120 volts and refunded our $30. - BbTrombone

We loved this park. Most sites are fairly level and all are shaded. Our site was directly on the Suncook River. The owners and maintenance staff as well as the seasonal campers were genuinely friendly without being intrusive. The park is quiet, peaceful, relaxing and the surroundings are lovely. If you have fond memories of how camping used to be, then this park may bring those memories back to life. The facilities are well maintained for a park of this vintage. Some of the picnic tables were well-used, but the campsites were clean, the fire pits were raked and the small beach was clean. The location is a good base for exploring the surrounding area. We will definitely visit again. - leorah

Basic park. I was in site 1 right next to the office and I could see very little of the rest of the park as sites are interspersed among the trees. There were few trees in the area where I was parked and the afternoon sun in August was harsh. Avoid this spot--particularly because they charge three dollars extra a day for use of air conditioner. Water electric and sewer were provided and they were easy to access. My Verizon, if I recall correctly worked OK. Not a place, particularly in the area where I was parked, that I would want to spend any amount of time but good for a stop over. The spots further into the wooded area may have been nicer. The owner of the park is quite gracious and helpful. - nanzhere

This was an overnight stay for us as. We found the owner expecting us when we arrived (we had a reservation) and friendly. The sight was large and easy to back into. We would stay here again if in the area. - 1coloradan

We stayed here on Coast to Coast. Very remote, quiet campground. Our space was huge. Pretty much had our section (right behind the office) to ourselves all week. Seasonals came on the weekend. I didn't look at the restrooms, but my husband said they were really bad. And if he thinks they were bad, I would have thought they were horrendous. But again, I didn't look at them. Make sure you bring lots of food & supplies with you because the nearest full grocery store is almost to Concord (30+ miles west). Not a whole lot to do in the area unless you are there for Nascar races. We weren't, but did do a lot of driving around on beautiful back roads. Beautiful country. Would definitely stay there again. - lebamster

No problem with reservations although original assigned site was not available due to a late checkout of the previous camper. Was told the assigned site was better than the original. Not much to look at, as it backed up to a backwater area off of a small pond, view was mostly dead limbs and black muck, but at least there weren't any bugs. There are other sites that were occupied when we arrived that would have been better. Neighbor voluntarily re-staked his chained dog to the opposite side of his site after we arrived. Owner was helpful and pleasant. Gate card required a $10 deposit. Wi-Fi didn't work in our location and I didn't try the TV. We were here for 4 nights as we were visiting family in the area. We only spent the nights here.
It seemed to be a party spot over the holiday weekend for locals and the many permanent residents. Children seem to have a great time riding bikes and fishing in the small pond. There were some dead limbs in the trees over our site and was glad we didn't have a significant wind storm while we were here.
There are not many better choices in the area. We were here 20 years ago and it is not how I remembered it then. - Trailbuddy

We stayed at Circle 9 for 12 days while waiting for Camping World to process some warranty work on our RV. We chose Circle 9 based on the five minute drive to Camping World and past reviews. The good: Site 127 is a pull through and we had no issues getting setup. We were guided to our spot by Sonny, the owner, and he made sure we had everything we needed. Water and electric were fine, wifi was upgraded during our stay and worked well, except when the park was full during NASCAR race weekend, then it was intermittent.
The bad: The pull through sites are not the widest and alternate directions so our door faced our neighbors. This also meant sharing a picnic table and fire ring. This would be ok if camping with friends, but could pose a challenge with strangers. Our first weekend there a majority of the seasonal campers were out in force and the beer was flowing. A group of them setup at the horseshoe pits, which are near the temporary sites, and were getting rowdy, although the owner did send them back to their sites when he felt they were getting carried away. Quite a few seasonals don't leash their dogs and others who did had such long leads that dogs could still get near the roads which made walking our dogs challenging. The temporary sites are in an open field with no shade from the sun at any time of day. If the temperatures are moderate then its ok, otherwise expect your A/C to work overtime.
The pool was open but we did not use it.
We did hear the new owner has been in place for a year now and he does keep order when needed and seems to be keeping many in line. We need to be back in the area for more RV work so we most likely will return to Circle 9 after comparing it to other campgrounds in the area. - pfogleboch

This has to be the worst campground I ever stayed in. I came to this location because it was close to NASCAR. It was 90 degrees and the pool wasn’t open. Looks like it has been inoperable for some time…wish they would have told us. The limited sites that they have are very small with one utility pool per 2 sites. Every other RV parks in opposite direction…meaning my door was facing my neighbors door. I think my awning and my neighbors were only a few feet apart. The seasonal campers weren’t just seasoning it appears they live there with make shift enclosures over very old travel trailer. Not a very desirable clientele. You had to pay for WIFI, bathrooms were dated and at this cost I would have expected a much nicer campground. This is a quick overnight stay location that shouldn’t cost more that $25-$30 dollars. - E597283

Great park. Friendly staff. Showers weren't the cleanest I've seen. There were a lot of spiders and mosquitoes, but the campground is in the woods for the most part so I guess that is to be expected. Overall a great stay! We stayed on the golf course. - FerullosCoasting

I had high hopes for Hidden Valley RV and Golf course until we actually arrived.
We have a 32' travel trailer and it can be tight in many spots. Knowing this, the staff reserved a spot for us when we called knowing we couldn't fit into most of their spots. Upon arrival we find out that they gave our spot away ( a blessing in disguise) and moved us to the rear of the park. Our new site was backed up to a maintenance path used by golfers and staff but non the less it wasn't a bad spot. Very hard to back into being a tree was on the back in drivers side but once in, it was fine.
Now let's talk about the RV Park. I'd say 90% seasonal RVers. They pretty much let the people do what they want with the sites. Patios made of cinder blocks. Overgrown grass and trailers that haven't been moved in decades. There was a mini tennis court with a broken gate and a net about to fall off. One playground at the entrance of the park and that's about it.
Now knowing the lack of amenities, we thought what would be the big deal with inviting our family to our camper being they never saw it. Well once we asked the front desk if it would be a problem having them over they said they would need to charge $6 per person and $9 if they stay past 9pm. When asked what amenities are they paying for besides visiting us, no pool, no activities, nothing, they said that's policy. I understand, but when you have nothing you would hope people would want to spend time there.
So to wrap it up, if you're a transient RVer like us with kids and would like a clean, organized, RV park with amenities, and friendly staff, this is not your place. If you're cool with being mixed in with seasonals that look like they permanently moved in, give it a shot. For us, we will never return. - Tippys Leroy Brown

Arrived for our Memorial Day weekend in New Hampshire. This place is proof that good photography can make anything look good. Roads into the park are full of low hanging limbs and limbs that brush the sides of the RV. A couple of 90 degree turns makes it interesting. The park is full of run down seasonal campers. We reserved our spot last fall and was told it was a very nice spot. What it was was a dirt (not even gravel) place pushed out between some trees. The picnic table was eaten up with rot and termites! No cable, no satellite, no Wi-Fi, no Verizon. Mosquitoes about carried us off. We were able to move to another area that is a field with electric and water - no sewer. Site is so un-level the jacks are stuck down on my motorhome and won't raise. Have to deal with that tomorrow. I can't believe we are paying $275 for a week at this dump! We are stuck here for a week but be warned, if you are in this area, keep driving. I don't know where to tell you to go, but this isn't it! This place is a dump. Stay very far away. Not even one night. Not even $10. - Pjoe

I want to update the older comments by saying the power was a steady 118v, water pressure 50lbs, bathrooms clean and orderly. The park is an older park but roads and sites were o.k. for my 39' Montana. This is owner managed and it shows. Staff more than helpful. Great place for kids, right next to the river. - Duramax1217

Everyone we met here was very friendly and helpful. The campground is older with shady sites. Many seasonals. The hookups are not in normal locations. I didn't use the water so I can't comment on the lack of pressure. The electrical issues mentioned in another review must've been taken care of because the voltage was the highest I have ever seen. Not sure about the amperage as I have no way to measure it. Leaving was a challenge with a 38 ft motorhome. I wasn't sure if I was going to get around the loop at the end or have to back up and find a different exit. After a couple of tries I did get out OK. Convenient to Camping World, Sam's Club, Super Walmart and Concord. Many antique shops heading east on 202. - mrracechaser

This is just a so-so campground. We stayed here for two months for medical reasons (doctors, surgery, etc.), and felt lucky to get a spot here on short notice. The owners and staff are friendly and accommodating. Most of the sites are taken by seasonal customers. They have some activities. The location is good for race fans going to NH International Speedway in Loudon. Camping World is nearby. The electrical voltage and water pressure are both atrocious! Had to use the water tank and pump just to get enough flow for bathing and dish washing. We had a digital voltmeter plugged in, and on hot weekends during peak A/C loads, the voltage dipped down to 95, and we had to switch the fridge to propane just to keep the A/C running. Had to do much juggling to run things like the toaster and microwave. Would probably look elsewhere if we visit New Hampshire again. - cherpa

Site was clean. Power was 121v. at 30amps. WiFi was iffy and being discontinued. WiFi by cell phone was good. Cable TV was good. Water pressure was good. Got level by adding 1-1/2 inches on the left side. Has a fishing pond. What's so bad about this place for an overnight? One caution: probably better for trailers than motorhomes because of the sloping sites. - BbTrombone

We should have left this park as soon as we entered. This campground has potential to be nice, but no one is making any effort. We didn't check out the bathrooms because the entrance to them was so dirty and uninviting we didn't want to go any further. - CKB
