I really liked this park. Super friendly and helpful staff. The golf course will challenge any golfer Tight course which rewards straight shots. Greens are fast and true. Be sure to make a reservation if arriving in a motorhome . - Dave Kain

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

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

We stayed for one month. Camping area was grassy; had electric, water, sewer. Internet service; no cable. Staff and other campers friendly. Pay showers, key for restroom. Nice beach and lake. Close to many attractions in N.H., Maine, Massachusetts. - pamMJR

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

Owners were very nice, but: - They could have told us the road was closed because of roadworks. We did not see a sign saying it was open for access. We learned this when we spoke to the police officer at the other end 0f a long, hair-raising detour through narrow, twisting and poorly lit back roads, which added half an hour and several miles to our journey. - The access road just inside the park is in urgent need of repair. It's very bumpy. - There may be lead in the fresh water. However, gallon jugs of spring water are available free at the office. - Unbelievably, there is no store on-site and it's a fair walk to the nearest convenience store. How difficult would it be to install vending machines at least? Fortunately we were well stocked up. - There were a lot of carelessly parked cars, making the narrow roads even more difficult to negotiate. - Our plot was tiny and we needed assistance to back in. There was an eight-foot plunge just behind our vehicle. We will not be returning. - AlisonS

The host was the friendliest host that we have met in our short time of camping. Most of the people here are seasonal but that didn't keep them from being friendly.This place is very very clean. I would stay here anytime I am in the area. - Aaron Brown

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

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

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

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

This park is located in the southern region of NH about 30 min from UNH, 45 minutes away from Manchester and the same from Hampton Beach. It is a beautiful park with the 195 campsites in three sections - a tent section, Big Island area and then Horse Island. There is also primitive camping on other lakes in this huge park. Horse Island and part of Big Island are reservable - 180 total. There are some great sites on Horse Island overlooking the lake and many have direct access for their kayaks from their site. Our site 7 was beautiful but tough to turn around in with a 25ft sprinter, so I would not pick it again. One needs to really read the write up about the sites. We loved site 43! There are bathhouses with flush toilets and coin operated showers throughout the park. All sites are wooded with open fireplaces, picnic tables and there is water available around the loops. There is a beach with playground, store and picnic tables all in walking distance from most sites but parking there is also available. Pets are not allowed in the park and there is no dump station. There are boat ramps for boating on Pawtuckaway Lake that surrounds the campsites. Many sites have lake views. We definitely will be back. I just wish they allowed pets and had a dump station. - gsnakehill

Was a stop over for us on the way north. Nice park for families with the lake, beach, boat rentals and nice store. Sites are spacious offering privacy. We were able to back into our site with our 32 ft motorhome, but most sites are not level. Park is really not big rig friendly, most campers were in tents. Again, nice park, but we won't be returning because the price for a state park with no hookups is way too high. - Buckie

Our family loved this campground. The sites are big and have a lot of space between them. The water in the lake was clean and warm. It had big boulders left behind by the glaciers that we canoed to and the kids could jump off of them. The camp store was expensive compared to what we are used to. The bathrooms were a little out dated, except for one that look like it was redone a couple of years ago. The bugs were pretty bad in the showering area. The showers are free even though there is a coin operator. The day use area gets real busy on the weekends. We definitely will go back next year. The also don't have a dump station. - B. P. Donelan

If rated on customer service, this place would be a 10. Sadly, this park is in the process of being sold to developers. It is a convenient park but not designed for larger rigs. Watch out for low wires. - Charisma1965

Not a campground by any means, more like a trailer park. No teen activities little to no activities for younger kids or any activities are put on by other campers/residents Campground employees are quick to Yell at you for going to fast yet they pass you on their 4 wheelers, that's another thing. 4 wheelers are constantly going all over the campground like its a ATV park. Yet they are not allowed unless you're part of the click. One of the owners is more than happy to tell you it's quite time while roaring around the camp at midnight waking my kids with the sound of his 4 wheeler.
The public restrooms are a filthy outdated mess. WiFi only at the office with no place to sit or any privacy. With so many campgrounds out their I will never bring my family there again.
Don't waste your money. - Happy sober camper

Horrible experience! When i called to reserve a two week spot, the woman on the phone took a five day payment. Upon arriving at the office to check in, we were told that our chosen site had been taken and were given another site and were not allowed to choose where. We were told that we had to use their power convertor (which unplugged and spoiled everything in my fridge and defrosted everything in my freezer). The bathrooms reeked of mildew. The showers were pay showers with tiny heads that only sprayed a mist, and you could not adjust the water temperature. When I went to the office on day three, the woman behind the desk... the same one who checked me in said, "Checking out, correct?" Shocked i replied, "No, when I phoned and checked in I told you we needed a spot for two weeks." I was then informed that someone took a seasonal spot and i was given two hours to pack up and leave AND find another place to stay. Please note this campground is located next to a prison, the dirt roads are poorly maintained and only fit one vehicle at a time. The only positive thing that i can say is that the fishing was great. Lastly, they had two activities listed but both were cancelled. Another camper told me that they plan and cancel most activities. Do not ruin your vacation by staying at this disorganised slum of a campground. - country camper69

This park is very convenient to the Nashua, NH and Lowell, MA areas. It is a small park on a beautiful lake, and primarily caters to long term residents. The park offers few amenities, but the rates are very reasonable. Comcast cable and phone service is available on every site. The park is closely monitored by the owner via video cameras, and it is not unusual for the operators of the part to come out and meet incoming campers without being prompted. No pool, showers, or Wi-Fi is provided, but if you need a decently priced campground for a long term stay in this area, this park stands out. - tricotec
