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

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

Overall our stay was good. The staff was friendly and stopped to talk to us regularly. As others have mentioned the site we had was roomy. In my opinion, big rigs (40+ feet) might have an issue negotiating the interior roads. The free Wi-Fi was best in the early morning hours (but not great), once the campground filled up, internet access was limited most of the time, and sometimes not useable. The cable TV was very poor, luckily our satellite connection was good. Prior to staying at this campground, we never had an issue with our Surge Guard, but one phase at this campground was constantly reading 130 vac and occasionally it would trip. Now that we've moved to another state and campground, we're not having any issues with it tripping. - gMw

A great, quiet RV park, good sized sites. Too may trees for satellite TV. Wifi was really not working when we were there. We would stay here again if we are in the area. - John and Carol

Stayed here for a weekend while visiting friends in Nashua. Quite a few of the sites are seasonal/permanent campers, but all are well maintained. Our site was roomy for an older campground. W/S/E were all in excellent condition and did not require any extra hoses or cable. Sewer pipe was a bit high. Asphalt surface was a little beat up, but level, solid, and easy to back into. There was no designated dog walk, rather several "don't walk your dog here" areas. Very nice stream and pond, and plenty of trees around the outside. The free Wi-Fi was excellent. Great coverage, strong signal, and I never experienced it slowing down. $45 per night is the going rate in the area. Staff was friendly and helpful. I would certainly stay here again. - BounderPounder

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

The park caters to seasonal campers, but has an open field for transient RVs, the "200's." The sites are somewhat cramped in the 200's and getting a 32ft TT backed into some of the spots can be challenging. They have a handful of pull throughs.
A neighbor RV did have problems with the park 50 Amp service, he had to use a dongle to utilize just half of his 50.
The best part of the campground is the pools. The kids had a great time in the pools. Sunday morning we ate in the campground restaurant, which was decent. - johnbaker

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

I gave this campground a 7 because a) it is one of very few options in the area and one of the best, and b) the staff was really nice. Otherwise might have been lower There is a huge variety of sites - some more private than others, some easier to get in, some full hookup, some W/E, some more sloping. We chose site 81 which is in a bit of a separate alcove with 3 other sites, W/E. It is next to the lake, and right next to the walking path along the lake. So it is much more private and quiet. The site was great when we stayed as campground was not full. Verizon stong - 3 to 4 LTE There are quite a few seasonal campers here who apparently leave their units over winter, or for periods of the summer, etc. I'm guessing summer and weekends would be quite busy The bathhouse we used was horrid - lots of bugs, not very clean. It cost a quarter for the showers! But WORSE was there was a dribble of water - hard to get hair washed. My husband paid his quarter and didn't bother showering. Shower head and handle flopping around - geez needs a lot of fixing. The office staff were great both on the phone and in person. We stayed here just for a night as we had flown into Manchester, rented RV, and then went to Maine for 2 weeks. Needed place near Manchester on nite before returning RV We are from Colorado - have a fifth wheel and truck camper - camp 10-12 weeks per year. Camping in Maine (and NH) is certainly different from the western US. - chinookgeo

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

This is a very large campground with lots of activity. Most of the sites were seasonal and the residents and guests get throughout the park in golf carts. We were here Memorial Weekend and it was so crowded you could hardly get to your site for all the kids on bicycles and the golf carts. This is a huge community of weekenders that leave their rigs here throughout the season. They had lots of staff that were very helpful. Interior roads are very tight. Had to unhook the tow to make the tight turns up the hill. - GMS Lucy

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

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

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

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
