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

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

Sites were typical of an older private campground, a little tight depending on whochre site you get. The ones that back up to the woods were really large and nice, but these seemed to be occupied by seasonal campers. - mtn_bikers

We stayed at Field and Stream to visit friends nearby. It is well located with access to Nashua to the east and Peterborough to the west. Route 101 is a few miles to the north. The park was exceptionally quiet, clean and friendly. The owners were always ready to help in any way. In fact, because some of the sites are a bit tight, they offered the "valet" parking of our trailer. Nice touch. This is a good spot for adults as there is not much to offer for kids. We would definitely stay here again. - SchnoodleCamp

The campground was nice site 40 was perfect length for our coach. After check-in we never needed any contact with the front office. I'm sure they would have taken care of any problems if we had any. The site was level and on black top. The interior roads were gravel The night before we got there, there had been a big storm while we were there they were actively filling pot holes and leveling. Good things. - Tour n

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

Nice environment, clean restroom/showers, well stocked camp store. Lots of seasonals. Transient site was in tightly packed area. Our site had lots of exposed roots. Cable consisted of 12 channels and was often fuzzy. Wi-Fi for a fee; did not use. Pools were nice. Game room was lacking. Adult rec building becomes breakfast restaurant on weekend and food is good (and reasonable). Single bar on AT&T and Verizon cell service. Overall good weekend experience. We would return. - Bigdave2165

This was the first time staying at Friendly Beaver. The facilities are great, tons for kids to do, dinners, big tractor drawn wagon rides, antique firetruck rides, horses & goats....the list goes on. The bathrooms were all clean & relatively easy to get to. The not so great was the "200 section" we stayed in. It is a large oval camping area just packed with sites. The back-in sites (along the outside) are tight. I have a 23' RV with one slide-out. I was lucky to not have any adjoining neighbors during the weekend, otherwise I would have been staring at their rig (or they at mine). I mean, with my slide-out extended, my awning touched the next site when it was out. I practically didn't fit. We asked about a more private/wooded site and was told those are mostly reserved for "monthly/Seasonal" folks. There are a huge amount of "full timers". They say they are strict with speed limits, but not with the brigades of golf carts. Those people flew around like they owned the place. A bit of a pun because I had a feeling a large amount of family/family friends actually do stay there. All in all it was a nice place. Lots for kids to do, 4 pools, one of which is an indoor heated pool. If we could camp in a nice wooded site we would go back. - BigNuge

We reserved a week stay based on the website and conversation with staff. The site we reserved didn't even come close to fitting out 43 ft RV. After stressing to the staff the size, they assured us we would fit. It was late afternoon on our arrival. Not one person in office and no one answered the phone to let them know we couldn't fit. Finally found someone in rec hall and explained we need a different site. They said that we should fit and told the staff we had a truck pulling RV and couldn't swing turns. She said, well you didn't tell us you were in a truck. Hmmmm, 43 ft 5th wheel gets pulled how?? We left early in our stay. The campground was littered with garbage and pet "mess" was everywhere. There are mostly full time residents with old trailers covered in tarps and sites were unkempt. The horse and goat area was small and not much to look at. They did have a very nice indoor heated pool that abuts the rec hall. It is very unlikely we would return. - LisaC

We came here from Michigan for a family reunion. We had 5 adults 2 children and one grandma. Upon arrival they couldn't find our reservation. It wasn't a big issue they explained since they had plenty of sites available. I then asked if there was an additional site near it available. They explained that it was fine and told us site 90 and 94 would work best but we could take anyone we chose. Once we got to the sites they were taken so we took the other ones that were suggested. We set up the trailer on one site and 2 tents on the other. We had to pay extra for the additional adults. Sites were a bit unkempt but we were camping. We also had our newborn nephew over for an hour to meet him. We sat by the fire and caught up late onto the night. We got a wake up call in the morning asking us to come to the office. They explained that they were asking us to leave a day early. They went through a list of offenses. When we pulled in initially we went too far. They claimed we tricked them by adding an additional site and having. Them lose our reservation. We didn't pay for the additional tent on the second site even though we paid for the people. We had an extra unregistered vehicle which we assumed was addresses when we checked the vehicles in. We did not pay for our 6 week old nephew to visit. We had a fire too late(all though the owner admitted to driving past and said all was fine). She refused us a refund and claimed she would charge us for damage??? Overall the attitude and lack of respect from the owners was outrageous. I would strongly suggest staying far away from this campground!! - Michigan mommy

We were looking for a place fairly close to home and picked Autumn Hills. The owners are very friendly. The pool looked immaculate and there were lots of nice touches such as an e-z up over the picnic table at the playground. Our site was big and wooded. There is not much to do in the immediate area which was fine with us, but might concern people travelling with older children. - sbradley

I booked this family trip without reading a single review. Upon arrival, check in was easy, and the owner even brought me around for my pick of a site, even after they had given us one. Well I decided to take my original one, nothing wrong with the others but mine was by the lake. The site was spacious and everything worked properly. Seasonal were very friendly, as was the owner, she did a good job of keeping on top of things, on the grounds. Pool was clean, dinner time is the best time to swim, basketball court was fine and horse shoes were fine. Store was small, and their is an arcade was on premisses. The rec area was OK, darts, pool table, lots of books to read, campground was quiet and didn't offer a ton of activities for teen's when we were their, but we traveled off the grounds as well, because we like to explore a new area. I would travel back here again. - avidcamper123

Great pool complex. Our site was plenty big enough, larger than many campgrounds we visit. Enjoyed a couple I've creams from the restaurant. Many seasonals with nice sites but they are some that are cluttered with too many tarps and canopies. The entertainment was enjoyable, loved the pool side music. - Happy Camper X2

We arrived in the dark Friday night to a very crowded and busy entrance. Crowded and busy from people, bikes and golf carts, which just makes me a little nervous trying to drive through. Our site was plenty big enough and easy to back into with our 40' fifth wheel with Freightliner.
They have lots of activities specially during the Family Fun weekend when we were here. The pools and hot tubs, yes plural, were the nicest pools and hot tubs and area we had EVER seen camping. Certainly looking forward to going back.
My only complaint was the communication from the office to the gold cart escort should be more clear, as they took us the wrong way and then couldn't go over a bridge, so had to back out part of the way to get turned around. - tshaunb

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

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

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
