This was by far the worst campground we have stayed in. We booked for month of a July and were assured we would have a 50 amp site. On arrival we found that they had not updated the electrical as planned. The dirt roads had pot holes so large they could swallow your vehicle. The owner had all the equipment necessary to repair but never did. It was so bad it was torture to come and go from campground. Trash around campsites and dumpsters made the place look unkempt and was never picked up. Sites were not level and collected rain water causing mosquitoes to be unbearable. We ended up leaving early it was so bad. We camped at Exeter Elms Family Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Pot holes everywhere, no restaraunt, showers out of order, urinal didnt flush, not worth the money, great for over night but any longer forget it! No cable, when they say limited wifi they mean it. Not very well maintained or clean! Was told when making reservations wifi was being upgraded .. not inthe area we were in! We camped at Exeter Elms Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Disgusting trash bins on the way in, how easy would it be to section them off with a gate to hide the garbage. First impressions are everything! A vast amount of uncontrolled poison ivy everywhere. This pool should be condemned to the public as there was hair/bandaids/bugs floating in it and the water was green and cloudy. The pillow pad is never open. The river is to shallow to canoe in. The playground needs serious updating, and the so called "arcade" is in the dark and hot attic above the store. The bathrooms were dirty, there was no soap in the dispensers and there was only 1 stall with toilet paper. The showers did not work. The activities listed on the sheet that my grandchildren were very excited for, sadly very few occurred. The appearances of the workers is very unprofessional with cigarettes hanging out of their mouths with stains and holes all over their clothes. The location of the park was wonderful, but the park itself is rundown, poorly managed, and extremely understaffed. Many children in the pool were unsupervised and rules do not apply to everybody as far as speed limits, bike helmets, quiet hours, and road directions on one way streets. We camped at Exeter Elms Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Place has turned into a dump. Owners are never there to manage campground. Activities get cancelled for lack of participation, management. They don't have staff to keep place clean. Roads are full of potholes. Bathrooms are horrible, showers never work or have hot water. there were multiple drug related police visits last year including an overdose. No kids activity director, so good luck keeping kids busy! We camped at Exeter Elms Family Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

The park is mostly seasonal with a few sites for drive-ups. They advertise Passport America but when we called, they said it was high season. I asked when PA was available and was told the first couple of weeks after they open and a few weeks before they close for the season. Those terms were not spelled out in the PA book.

The interior roads are pot holes held together with some dirt. The speed limit was supposed to be 5MPH but everyone drove much faster which created a continuous dust cloud. Staff was friendly, the park itself was clear of trash. The pool looked like it was being put to good use by all the kids. We camped at Exeter Elms Family Campground in a Motorhome.

Quiet and peaceful along the river. Plenty of trees and enjoyable views. Campground is in the process of spring cleaning and adding a new restaurant. Easy to find and nice people. We will return. We camped at Exeter Elms Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This campground has large level grass back-in sites and very shaded. The cost includes Passport America discounts for 5 of the 7 days. I found it easy to get to the campground from the south but did hear complaints from others that drove through Exeter. The full hookup sites only have 30 amps and the voltage was so low that we tripped the breaker a couple of times. The sewer drainage would also back up if you drained too fast. No cable or over-the-air TV but we were able to pickup a satellite signal with our portable dish. Wi-Fi was slow but Verizon cell coverage was good. They have a nice pool and do a few activities during the weekends, mostly for the kids. Even with the negatives, we would stay here again. We camped at Exeter Elms Family Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice park with good Wi-Fi. They say that they don't have cable TV, but the cable at our site brought in 50+ stations. Lots of shaded sites on OK dirt roads. We canoed the river in both directions until it was blocked by trees. The staff is functional but not friendly or helpful. We camped at Exeter Elms Family Campground in a Motorhome.

Large campground in a very wooded area. Basically a camping area with many tents and travel trailers used as summer homes. The bathrooms and pay shower areas are very dated and not very clean. No 50 amp sites with sewer connections. Say they have pull throughs, but I only saw two. No cable access and no satellite available, due to the wooded area. We camped at Exeter Elms Family Campground in a Motorhome.

We had to be here as it was the best rate we could find to access a Boston Medical facility. The campground is big, the sites are small, and lots of permanents who drive their cars in and out a lot even late at night. Lots of week-end noise party type things in their pavilion. Not a place we would have chosen but good for a certain type of camper. We did kayak the Exeter river which was very nice. People in the office were friendly, but there was no one maintaining order in the large campground. Good overnight but not for 5 days. We camped at Exeter Elms Family Campground in a Motorhome.

We traveled here again, only about 35 miles from home. A nice basic campground. Fathers Day weekend they had planned activities. I did not take part but some from our group did and they had fun. Boat rentals were in use and the river was higher and a bit faster than we have seen it. After all the rain, sites were pretty wet, some unusable. The office told us that if the site was unusable they would let us move, just check with them to be sure the site was available. We took over the edge of the road in front of one of the sites to play some kan jam, bean bag toss, and ladder golf. It looked like we were waiting for a parade so the kids clapped when cars drove by. We had a good time and it was a great weekend. We camped at Exeter Elms Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We camped on 2 river sites on their last weekend of the season. Everything was closed and there were some seasonals closing up for the season and a few other campers. On Friday night in the dark and cold, I managed to fall into the river and go under as I was clearing the area around the fire pit so the leaves and pine needles would not catch fire. Luckily I was able to get up and out without getting too injured. Stripped and took a shower and all was good. We enjoyed the campground and the sites were away from others there. We will probably go back at some point and not wait 18-20 years like we did since our last visit there. They have a large tenting area which looked nice. We shall see what next year brings.

The permanent residents have tackied up this place beyond repair. Pink flamingos and twirly beer cans abound. The river is a narrow dark stream which is less than charming. The trees do add a bit of ambience and if you can get away from the locals you might enjoy a night here. A tour of the quaint town will take about 20 minutes.

Exeter Elms is a wooded family type campground. It has been around for a long time and has always been well taken care of. It has recently had new ownership and it is a positive result. New bathrooms have been added as well as upgraded amperage in some sites. They have also improved the store. On our recent stay there were some activities as there always is during the summer season. This campground is a good choice and can fill up quickly during the summer. We look forward to additional improvements. We camped at Exeter Elms Family Campground in a Tent Trailer.
