Our first time here and I had read about the great donuts and the great owners. Well, on check-in I was told donuts are only available on holidays, which was disappointing, and I felt the owners were not that nice about the fact I asked about them. Anyway, we headed to our site which was easy to get into but with the length of our trailer I could not get it level. The site was on a hill and I backed up as far as I could go and lowered the front jack as far as it would go and we were still a bit unlevel. Anyway, all this aside, the place grew on me. After set up and dinner I went back to the office to check the pool times as they are not posted and was told 9:00, which was great. We had the older pool to ourselves so to cool off as everyone else was at the beautiful newer pool. Took a nice walk the next day and it is a real nice place. WiFi was a little slow and you need a password which I did not get. I guess it is written on the book they give you but mine was blank. Anyhow, since we were in the mountains and thunder storms started at 2, we were "lucky" and the mountains held the storms overhead for over 10 hours. Parts of the campground did flood, we went out to dinner rather than standing in puddles to cook. We plan to camp here again and hope that it is as enjoyable as the good parts of this weekend. - Happy Camper X2

Super friendly owners
Amazing pool and splash zone
Freshly made donuts on Saturday morning
Camp Store with DVD rentals
FHU with 50amp
Extremely clean bathrooms
Very nice seasonal campers
Seasonal Park and seasonals enjoyed watching us park our 45ft motorcoach on the first try! Everyone knows everyone so as a transient, you feel like an outsider.
Roads are dirt and it rained so super muddy
30 minutes from a town... so bring groceries if you are getting in late! - RVThatFamily

If you want a nice private site then this campground is not for you. I like some privacy which is why only gave it a 5. What the park has going for it is nice host, new pool that the kids will love and the campers themselves were nice. Fresh donuts on Saturday morning are a plus just make sure you order them on Friday.
Will not be going back due to no privacy issue. - nh kayak

Price includes reservation fees. Sites vary, but most are big and spacious and deep. Sites are mainly dirt, but roads are all paved. No hookups, but water through out as well as permanent rest room buildings which were clean. Dump station available. Main shower building when you come in with parking and trash and recycling dumpsters are there as well. Nice swimming lake, but was closed during visit because of bacteria from rain they have been getting. Has boat ramp and nice new playground by picnic area. Campground has own swim beach. Sprint cell was spotty. Firewood was $6 for about 6 pieces. Store had limited supplies and souvenirs. They also had ranger programs. Will definitely come back again. - acenorm

This park is located in the southwest part of New Hampshire and as most of the state parks in New England will close on Columbus Day. There were only a few loops open and we were the only ones in our loop on a Sunday night. I think we might have been the only ones in the park but there were quite a few campers during the weekend checking out when we got here. No reservations needed during this time of year. There are no hookups but water spigots are located in each loop as well as bathhouses. Showers are located near the ranger station at the entrance as well as a recycling dumpster. There is a dump station. This park of 400 acres has huge sites and ours looked out through the trees in the distance over a small cliff towards Beaver Pond and Otter Lake. There are hiking trails throughout the park going by ponds, bogs, forest and Otter Lake which is undeveloped except for a public beach and a campers beach. Nice lake! In season there is a small park store but if you come during the week like we did you take a registration form, find a site and return to put it in a slot with your fee and information. The night we were there was the Supermoon Eclipse and even through there were trees we had a great view of it from our site and RV. The beach is OK, but the water is nice and clear and one can kayak from the beach. Nice park with bike riding, boating, fire rings, fishing, horseshoes, playground, restrooms, showers, and swimming.
This is a beautiful part of New Hampshire and it is in driving distance of Franklin Pierce University and some other small colleges that are located in this region. Cathedral of the Pines is also a short road trip away. This was a one-nighter for us but if we were in the area we would stop again to camp here. - gsnakehill

Nice campground. Lake has distinct smell that makes swimming less than desirable. Launching kayaks is not easy leading to extra load and unloading time and then still hiking in with boats. - love2campforever

This was the first time we have stayed at Woodmore. The website gives you the idea that they are strict, and very rule oriented. While I understand there have to be rules, I don't care for very strict parks. Rather, we should all govern ourselves respectfully without having the management getting involved. That being said, we had no issues with this park at all! The staff was great, we met both of the owners (Husband & Wife, great folks). They were curious and friendly. They do adhere strictly to the site occupant limits, and we had to rent a second site to accommodate the one adult (5th adult) that we were over the limit by. The site we had was at the end of the "T" section. They seem to section off the seasonal from the traditional campers (good idea IMO). The sites varied greatly in terms of size. Some sites were quite small, but ours was a perfect size for our HTT. The amenities were all in great condition, and well maintained! The Bocci court was the best we've seen in 2 Summers, we played for hours!! They have paddle/row boats & cohoes for rent. We rented 3 boats and all went for a nice paddle around the lake, let the kiddos explore the tiny island right offshore (told them it was a treasure island, we couldn't wipe the smile off their faces!!). The bathrooms & showers were nice & clean. Showers are extra large & roomy. My wife had an issue with the hot water in the showers on the first morning. We spoke to the owners and they PROMPTLY resolved the issue. This was a great CG. Family oriented, friendly ownership & staff, great facilities & amenities. We will be back in 2015 for sure!! As a note: I only gave them an 8 for a couple of reasons. 1)The majority of the sites were quite small. When we return, it will be contingent on getting the same site we did this time. There were no other sites that appealed to us (too small, not enough separation etc.). 2)The firewood they sell was all pine. It was a nice service, and the price was good ($7 for a barrel of it, and they bring it right to your site). But it wasn't difficult to go through 3+ buckets a day for a decent fire (we like having nice fires). - BigNuge

Came for a weekend to get away, but would not stay here again. On the plus side, might fit you if you have a lot kids and a smaller rig. On the negative, nothing is paved (roads or campsites) so whenever it rains the place is a mud pool. Sites are generally smaller and packed together with lots of trees. No Wi-Fi. Very noisy on Saturday as they had open air karaoke with the sound system so loud that my RV shook. - snolan

Nice layout with good size sites. We stayed at 17 which was a pull through and plenty of room (Premium site) and level. Best sites I like are 16,17,18,19,20 as these are near the pool and activity. Owner came as we checked in to see if we needed anything or if we needed a hand; never ran into that before and it made a hit with us right away. Wi-fi is only around the office and not in the campground; otherwise, I would have given it a 10 rating. They clean everyday around pool and grounds. The owner is working the grounds and there if you need anything. We enjoyed it and will be going back Columbus Day weekend. Labor day was full, but I may call later again. Water pressure was normal, good cable, and kids were enjoying playground and pool. 3-4 PM is adult time and kids need to leave pool area. Easy in and easy out. Great bass fishing. People were very friendly and store had most of the things you need if you run out. Big stores are about 2 miles away. We will be going back a couple times a season as it's close to home. - harleyy87

Quiet park great for tenters or hybrid campers. Our 32ft 5th was too big for most of the roads. The only bathrooms we saw was an outhouse and only one dumpster aat the entrance. - cbshea02

The camper sites are wooded, but can be navigated with care. We had no trouble bringing in the 25' Outback and we are novices. Owners are friendly and accommodating; lake is beautiful in the fall and photographic opportunities abound. There are boat rentals and fishing, and swimming in the summer. Many sites have full hookups. The bathrooms with showers are at the camp store area, are clean and there is plenty of hot water. Our wooded site had full hookups, so nobody needed to use the outhouses that are sprinkled through the camping areas. They have stone fireplace rings at each site, and the camp permit dictates that fires be no more than knee height and be out before leaving them. It is a forested area, so care is required. We had a wonderful time. Site was rustic, clean and well supplied. Owners have created an excellent wooded camping experience. - SharonW.

We were looking for a weekend get away that was not too far to travel for us and a relative. We found Swanzey Lake Camping area thru an internet search. I could not find to many reviews but the web site looked OK and the lake area was inviting. We arrived on Thursday afternoon and the first impression of the campground was poor. The entrance to the campground had boat trailers parked all over the place, a disabled vehicle next to an old shed. The first appearance was a campground that was not kept up. After checking in we were given directions to our site. The roads in the campground were very narrow and rough, other campers had a difficult time navigation the turns. When we found our site we got out of the vehicle too look around. The site was a spot in the woods that had been filled with sandy fill and each time it rained our site (along with others turned to brown mud and the fill started to wash away. Trying to keep the sand out of the RV was a constant chore. The quiet hours were from 10:00 to about 8:00 am but they were not really enforced. This campground was mostly seasonals. As we walked around the campground we could often smell sewage, we could not determine where the smell was coming from. The web site states that they have a rec hall with games and a pool table, all there was is a porch with some games and a pool table that was in a tight area so it was difficult to use it. The only thing that was nice and kept up at this campground was the lake area. - wahooo

The host, could be the nicest we have ever encountered!!!!! Big spaces with lots of room. No cable but who needs it in this setting. WIFI only at the office but they have a room for you to do your work in. All hook ups worked great!! - Donny and Donna

I love this campground!!! The owners are very friendly and work so hard to maintain their campground!! In addition to being the cleanest campground I've ever been to, the location was perfect for me. The Ashuelot River surrounds the campground for kayaking, canoeing and swimming. The adjacent forest is beautiful and it abuts the best rail trail that leads you right into Keene, NH. Great for walking, running, or biking! Overall it is just the best and I'm looking forward to my week stay in July!!! - CathyShaun

This is a beautiful park on a huge acreage of lawn surrounded by huge trees, right next to a river.
We have been to dozens of RV parks in the last couple of months and hundreds over the past 30 years, and this is a new favorite. What sets this park apart?
Two things: one, the owners don't just put out a bunch of fliers about local places to visit. When we were checked in, the owner found out what we specifically like to do and offered advice that fit our preferences. Second, this RV park has an off-leash, non-fenced area way off on the side of the park (away from sites) which was perfect for our 3 large dogs to stretch their legs. The owners actually tell you about that, too.
There is some highway noise nearby, but it was insignificant and not noticeable. - beckydmc

The owners were friendly and the full timers nice to the weekenders. The campground was quiet and relaxing. They also own a beach about a mile away that you can bike too. Here are the drawbacks to the campground when we visited. The roads were very rough with low branches, at our site we had to use 75' of hose for the fresh water, the site was not level and a bit small. The owners (new) are working to make many improvement to the campground. I think that in a few years this will be a winner to visit on a regular basis. The owners might be able to contact the soil conservation office to help them with drainage problems. We will visit this campground again. - wahooo

Stayed here on Father's Day weekend. Because it was raining they did a free movie night with popcorn in the rec room on Saturday. National Treasure - it was great! They put on an awesome breakfast spread on Sunday. Reasonable rates, good eats, good company. Very nice sites, most private and shaded. Seasonal campers are a friendly bunch. They patrol their campground which was great, made me feel like they were looking out for me. The kids enjoyed the game room, spent a fortune on pool! Check them out! - gallora

Campground has new owner in May of 2005. My family stayed there for Memorial Day weekend. What a blast. Karoake, BBQ, Ice Cream Social, water slide for the kids. The owners are a married couple with kids, great family. Friendly and involved. Safe campground, they keep track of the campers. Seasonals are friendly and fun to hang out with. Previous reviewer stayed when it was owned by different people. New owners are flexible with number of units in sites. Give them a call! I'd recommend to anyone. They've changed their name to Idle Times Campground. - gallora

Nothing to do. Was pretty rundown, overpriced and unsightly. Lots were very close and sunny. Site surface was dirt. Would not recommend it.
It has a gate that opens for anyone, but you need a code to get out? Most of the permanant trailers are run down covered in moss and mold. No cable tv unless you want cable tv to install it for $110.00. Police were in and out most nights. - Gypsy8

Park is in bad shape, old run down abandoned trailers. No cable, only 30 amp electric. Overpriced in my opinion. - traveler88

This is a great campground for seasonal camping. Lots of sites with improvements like porches, sheds and multiple golf carts. The moon rising up over the mountain reflected in the lake was beautiful. The showers needed updating -- they were pull chain to operate and the rubber mats could have benefited from a a bleaching. The camp owner was hot and cold; this might make some feel unwelcome. Looked like a good place to camp with a boat. - mrsgranett

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

The campground was crowded, but it didn't feel like it. We camped over part of Memorial Day. Because of the holiday we weren't able to get it for the whole weekend - only Sunday and Monday nights. However, as most people left on Monday we were able to move to a location with a view of the lake. There are no hookups, only dry camping. They do have an $8 handling fee. The setting is peaceful and the sites are spacious. There is some noise from traffic, but it's not overwhelming. - RonMill

We've been coming back and forth here for years. These are large sites with many right on the water. We love to come back year after year. - Campers for Life

Another year, another review. We just love going camping here and the kids had a great time. My younger brother also loved this state park with canoeing, bike riding, and the trails. We always look forward to going again next year. We will definitely be back. - B. P. Donelan
