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

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

Calef Lake was the first camp ground my family (2 adults, 4 kids) went to after purchasing our Travel Trailer. It was close to home and for that reason we figured it was a good place to try out camping. The people there are very friendly, both the staff and long term campers. The camp ground was very clean, with the site being raked down prior to our arrival. The second time we went, they put wild flowers in a plastic vase out on the fire pit. The beach is raked down daily and it is a nice sloping grade for young kids, with a dock the older kids like to play on. There were a lot of other kids on the camp grounds, giving a mix ages. The camp ground got really quiet at or just after 10pm. For services, the water pressure was good, we didn't have any problems with the electrical or sewer. There is a second pond for fishing, however be prepared to loose a lot of hooks as there are a lot of trees in the water. The overall camp ground is small but quaint. The kids enjoyed bike riding everyday. The camp ground is small enough that they passed the camp site every few minutes making it easier to keep track of them. The dumpers, while are on the way to the beach tend to fill up quick and have a foal odor in the immediate area. The roads can be tight to maneuver larger trailers through the park. All in all, my family really enjoyed the camp ground, and we plan on making regular trips back in the years to come. - NHChris

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

In our numerous years of camping,This is by far the worst campground we have ever been to. This is not a family campground this is nothing but a party zone. There is absolutely no regulations or security in this campground. People speeding around in cars or golf carts(some drunk, also children) radios blasting, there is no regard to pedestrians and their safty. People yelling and partying until 3:30 in the morning with no regards to children on the next site over trying to sleep. Calling security was a joke, only get a message mail box is full, could not leave a message. The people next to my sister, playing with lighter fluid in the fire, also smoking so much pot that my sister and her young children along with my pregnant niece and her 10 month daughter could smell it in their tent trailer. Again calling security was a joke, got the same message. There were also broke bottles from people drunk and tossing their bottles off the golf carts. These broken bottles were there from Friday until we left on Monday Memorial Day. This is definitely NOT a family campground. There is no "quiet time" as specified. No wifi and no cable. We would never return to this campground! The only good thing is they do have clean restrooms and showers and the site was big and level. - Fletcher_11

Great over all experience but surprised there is no pool especially seeing it is priced much higher than the neighboring camp grounds. - User3034

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

Clean Beach, beautiful little lake and swimming area. Picnic and grilling area right on the beach. Gated entrance for security, lots of seasonal folks who are very nice to weekend campers. Owners are very nice and helpful. Close to other NH attractions. - clundberg99

Older campground with only about 14 Camper sites and 7 tent sites. The rest are seasonals. The pond was big and had a nice beach that was open to the public. The staff seemed like they were just doing their job. Our site was cramped for our 30' travel trailer. They could have spaced the campers apart better that were their this weekend. We were put between two campers that new each other and would cut thru our site, even under our awning. There were empty sites available. This campground is very close to Canobie Lake Amusement Park which is were we spent our Saturday. This is one reason I would go back there again, but that's it. - B. P. Donelan

Very wooded park, good roads and level sites. Boat launch available and fresh water pond on property with beach. If you want cable TV, you need to borrow a converter box (Xfinity) with a $25 refundable deposit. No OTA signal to speak of. No WiFi but good Verizon cell coverage. Mostly seasonals in travel trailers and park models and a handful of transient sites. Try to get in the sites numbered 25-29.
We stayed here to visit the grand kids who live nearby. They came to visit for a day and we sat on the beach then had dinner. Visitors pay $5 per adult and $4 per kid under 14. I thought this was a little steep. The beach wasn't all that good.
We decided we'd go back again but we'd try to get the sites on the edge by the beach (25-29). These were more secluded and in better shape. - jplante4

Diane is great! Very helpful and accommodating. The campgrounds are clean. The roads are unpaved and a bit narrow but room for a big rig. Nice pool and a great new pavilion. There are mostly seasonals but there are 5th wheels, and MH's as well. Quiet setting and good value. If you're looking for luxury, this isn't the place. If you're looking for a clean campground with nice people and a great value, you won't be disappointed. - JaPA

Expensive for what it is! Mostly seasonals and narrow gravel roads that are hard to navigate due to cars parked alongside them. Sites are a reasonable width, but not long enough to accept the RV and a parked car. Owner was friendly, but the whole place looked "cheap" - certainly not the quality to deserve the high price! - Limey51

Most sites are very close. Our site was not level. Roads are rough and tight. Owners are nice and pool appears to be nice. We did not check out the bath house. The WiFi and cable TV are fine. I would look somewhere else next time, but might end up back here for the WiFi. - aSprinkling

New owners here are very nice and friendly. Campground is very quiet this time of year. There are train tracks nearby but this did not bother us, we love hearing trains. Sites are large. Many sites are seasonal and campers were all working on cleaning up the sites or adding decks etc. Pool looked nice and the owners were busy getting the place ready for the season. All the hook ups were great and modern. Bathhouse was older but very clean. - Happy Camper X2

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

It is certainly off the beaten path deep into the countryside off the main roadway reached by a gravel road. The roadway and pull-thru sites are gravel with a picnic table, fire pit and full hookups with cable TV. The lake, Tuxbury Pond, was not very pretty when we were there as it was full of weeds. They have 2 pools and a playground. - Michael Kibler

Have stayed here twice will not stay again. Difficult to find. The roads are in terrible condition. Deep ruts everywhere, trees need to be trimmed. WiFi only at the pavilion and that was hit or miss. Some sites had electric and water at one end and sewer at the other end. No trash dumpsters in the CG, have to drive out the main entrance to find one and no trash pickup. Guest fees $10.
Positives: New owners in process of repairing roads. Lots of activities for kids and adults. Good water pressure.
One staff member was exceptional, MOD not so much.
Our nightly fee included Thousand Trails discount and a 25 percent off special. - Sleeps Two

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

We really enjoyed this campground. From the moment we arrived the owners and staff were wonderful. Everyone was friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about the area. They do a great job keeping the park and facilities clean and in good working order. The campground is a wonderful get back to nature campground, nice shady campsites, and peaceful surroundings. Each site has its own hookup, picnic table and fire pit, which was clean upon arrival. Plenty of room at all sites and campers respect each other’s sites. There are seasonal sites here and the campers at those sites were very friendly and made you feel welcome. Just a relaxing place to stay. They do have a swimming pool, which was kept very clean. The waterfront has a little beach with clean sand, no cigarette butts or trash laying around. There are canoes and paddle boats for rental or you can bring your own canoe. Great fishing too! There is also a play area for children, away from campsites, but viewable from many sites, which was nice to let the children play and still see them in the area, plus the bathhouse and restroom are there too. The campground does offer seasonal activities such as movie night, pig roast and picnics. There isn't a schedule of daily events for children but the one thing that I loved about this campground is that it lets children be children and allows them to get back to nature. It was refreshing to see children using their imaginations and playing flashlight tag, bug hunting, rock collecting and just exploring nature! Children rode their bikes around, they left their sites and made friends with other children and just played like kids should do. This is what camping is all about! This campground is close to everything that New Hampshire has to offer within just a short drive. Great for a short stay or an extended stay. Also, for those who need their morning coffee, Dunkin Donuts is a mile down the road next to a laundrymat, food market and gas station. Convenience within a short drive or walk. We loved it so much that we extended our stay here and we are looking forward to returning this year. - Ameribrit
