Large sites. Camped here in off season so not sure what park is like in season. Staff were friendly and courteous. Rented canoe and literally had whole Danforth bay to ourselves. Connects to lake Ossipie where there was one other boater, a motor boat with water skier. I'm sure this is not the case in season but week of Sept 22, 2014 park was relatively empty and bay was literally empty. Weather was great so if you want large sites, full hookups and the bay to yourself Danforth Bay is the place. Only down side internet service, both park wifi, verizon and att ( I tried them all with personal and work phone, hot spot, etc.) was very poor. Geographically it was expected though. Highly recommended for off season, cannot comment on in season. We camped at Danforth Bay Camping & RV Resort in a Motorhome.

First time here. We have heard from several how much they love the place, so we had to try it. The pools were nice and clean. They have 2 pools which helps alleviate crowds, but we had no crowds this weekend. There is a really nice, but steep!, hiking trail taking you to a beautiful vista. There was a nice band in the Pavilion. Wish they had more of an audience, as they were pretty good. The arcade wasn't that great; few games and a couple of them were broken. Snack shack on site that had a lot of choices and not terrible pricing. They have a bunch of dirt mounds for boys to bike on moto-cross style located adjacent to baseball field. The lake beaches were well raked and peaceful with coffee first thing in the morning. The store is well stocked with a huge variety of clothing choices for sale. Biggest problem I had was the sites are on top of each other. We camped with friends next site over, thank goodness. If we had strangers that close, I would've been miserable. Also, there are mostly seasonals here. I found them to not be as friendly as those doing weekend stays. We did hear a lot of parties going on with the seasonal sites all around us. Nothing that affected us directly as they were several sites over, but if I heard it right next to me, I would've hated it. End summary is to definitely give this a try for a weekend and search around for sites you might like later. We camped at Danforth Bay Camping & RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Our first time here and our last trip of the year. The campground is nice and it was clean and neat. The bathhouses are nice and seemed to be plenty of them. In season I am sure this is a great place, the pools looked real good. Some paved roads, mostly gravel. The sites were large for the most part and we looked at a few for the future but I know that they are hard to get into in season and we do not like campgrounds that require a Saturday to Saturday week reservation so we might not be calling back. We had a pull-through site that was fine, and we enjoyed the trick or treat time that they had. Basically there are sites up front near the pools available or in the back by the water and the rest is left up to walking. I can see why people love it here but we will continue to visit the campgrounds that we have come to enjoy more. We camped at Danforth Bay Camping & RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

The campground is overrun by seasonals with golf carts everywhere. You can barely walk down one of the roads or ride a bike without having to pull over for a car or golf cart. The seasonals are not very friendly and we even had a child of one seasonal constantly coming on to our site to play our children's toys all day long. They do have ample amenities and activities with three pools but the actual camping experience was more of a trailer park experience. The bathrooms and showers were clean enough and lake was nice to boat and fish on. We will not return as we have three small children and have been to several other more friendly and fun campgrounds for kids. Geared toward the teenage seasonal crowd.

We love this park! We come annually with our grandnephews because there is so much for them to do! The park is always clean, the staff is very friendly and everyone is always very helpful. The sites are large and the roads, in spite of the amount of rain they've had, are well maintained. We always have a great time and will definitely be back next year.

We camped here for a weekend and had a great time. The pools were clean and the water is warm, and the lake/beach area had been neatly raked. We found the restrooms to be clean, and plenty of hot water for a shower. We have been at this resort before and have always had a great time. Although there are a fair amount of seasonals, and a fair amount of golf carts, they are not a problem for us. Management told me they are looking to add shuffleboard and bocce courts in the future, we will be looking forward to this. We camped at Danforth Bay Camping & RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Lots to do for everyone. Park was well kept all around. Outside staff was great, really nice to see that even the security were down to earth and enjoyable to associate with. Store staff, some not all, could use some personality, and remember they are a customer service business. If you have kids and want to go somewhere they will have lots to do, and can allow you to enjoy yourself as well, this is the place.

We will not stay here again. The bathrooms were dirty, the roads are horribly dusty, we encountered several lose dogs, kids were setting off fireworks, kids throwing toys into the side of the RV, golf carts being driven by kids and recklessly, cars speeding, people partying until 2:00 a.m. and kids running through our site all day long, etc. We would not recommend this place.

We stayed on site C2 and were with a group who stayed on sites C1 and C5. We had two dogs among the group. The Good-- The campground definitely has everything you could ever need for amenities. The front desk is friendly and helpful. Our site was secluded and wooded. Showers are great and cheap (.25 for 7 min.) The Bad-- The associated problems with a large campground. We didn't personally have any issues but a woman we were checking in with had a huge mix up with the cabin she had rented. THE BLUFFS. The older people from the associated seasonal campground drive around on their golf carts and our extremely annoyed at the transient crowd. Overall-- This is a great campground and we will definitely go back. We camped at Danforth Bay Camping & RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Very woodsy but we were on the top of the hill, open area for satellite and even paved going up - great for cycle. Clearly a CG for relatively local folks with kids. Amenities were worth a 10. Lots for kids to do. Bluffs - toured but roads were really bad and few transient sites. Great cable, high water pressure. Would come back.

Rate reflects off season rates / special. Office help was very nice and provided helpful information to various restaurants. If you go, you must checkout the Mountain View Station Restaurant in Center Ossippee. The seafood was some of the best we have had. The utility hookups were very good, sites level and extremely wide. Natural foliage provided for privacy between the sites. The closest neighbor was about 75 ft away (huge sites). We were here just prior to peak season, so the park could get really busy during peak. It was very quiet while we were there though. The roads to our site were a little confusing. It would have been helpful if we had an escort. Clean park, huge sites, helpful staff, and well maintained park. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Danforth Bay Camping & RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We have stayed here frequently over the years. This is one of the best campgrounds around. The kids love the pools, the lake, and the overall friendliness of the campground. This visit was memorable in that they even provided a friendly visit from a very large but cute skunk one evening, we all had a laugh and enjoyed her brief appearance.. Will visit again soon.

We spent 2 weeks here again and were not disappointed. It is our 5th year in a row staying at least a week and the kids really enjoyed themselves as usual. The entire staff go out of their way to make your visit memorable. We camped at Danforth Bay Camping & RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

I don't usually give campsite ratings a 10 but Danforth Bay is worth the rating. This place is huge and very clean and organized. They run the campground like pros! The security was VERY HELPFUL! They kept everything in check and safe! The office staff was kind and helpful. The bathrooms were very clean and never got messy, they were on top of it. Danforth Bay is pet friendly and go as far as to offer free waste collection bags everywhere. I wish I rented a golf cart to see every inch, but missed out! I love this camping resort and I will go back again! Keep up the good work! We camped at Danforth Bay Camping & RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Great campground! Brought our grand-nephews for their first overnight. Our site was large and right near the ball field where there they spent most of their time. I love the theme weeks. We were here during "Wet and Wild" Week. I love that they provide a separate place on the lake for dogs to swim away from the "two legged" swimmers. The 2 pools are large and can accommodate the crowds. The kids pool is warmer and perfect for those under 8. We will definitely be back next year!
