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

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

Very wooded park, good roads and level sites. Boat launch available and fresh water pond on property with beach. If you want cable TV, you need to borrow a converter box (Xfinity) with a $25 refundable deposit. No OTA signal to speak of. No WiFi but good Verizon cell coverage. Mostly seasonals in travel trailers and park models and a handful of transient sites. Try to get in the sites numbered 25-29.
We stayed here to visit the grand kids who live nearby. They came to visit for a day and we sat on the beach then had dinner. Visitors pay $5 per adult and $4 per kid under 14. I thought this was a little steep. The beach wasn't all that good.
We decided we'd go back again but we'd try to get the sites on the edge by the beach (25-29). These were more secluded and in better shape. - jplante4

Expensive for what it is! Mostly seasonals and narrow gravel roads that are hard to navigate due to cars parked alongside them. Sites are a reasonable width, but not long enough to accept the RV and a parked car. Owner was friendly, but the whole place looked "cheap" - certainly not the quality to deserve the high price! - Limey51

Most sites are very close. Our site was not level. Roads are rough and tight. Owners are nice and pool appears to be nice. We did not check out the bath house. The WiFi and cable TV are fine. I would look somewhere else next time, but might end up back here for the WiFi. - aSprinkling

This park is in restoration mode. Sites were gravel and close to each other. There are a lot of permanent residents, however all the people were really friendly. The owners are extremely nice and trying very hard to get this camp in shape and are getting close. Our site was level with a new electrical pedestal and water tap. Cable television and WiFi worked great. While we were here (2 days) several plants were placed and lots of leveling done around large tent pavilion with more landscaping. The owners sure are proud of their campground and have good reason to be. - illini777

When we pulled into this park the manager and a young man were standing outside the store talking. The sign said the office to check in was up some stairs. I was limping from sciatica but went up there to find it locked. I came back down and the lady said she used the store to check people in now. Don't know why she didn't tell me when I walked by her, especially since she handed me our paperwork when I got to the desk. Anyways, there are a ton of trees and poor to no antenna reception and no cable. Wi-Fi cost extra. There were a ton of kids on golf carts with loud radios and noisy trucks and way too much traffic going past our site all the time. The site was very wide and level and had 50 amp, water, and sewer but I still would not go back there unless absolutely necessary. In all fairness though, it isn't too far off Hwy 101. - Ginny H

We checked Woodalls and Passport America books and saw nothing telling us this place can NOT handle a Big Rig. While traveling we called their reservation number. It's in Florida and the people there don't know the park. At the park, the one office person was unqualified. After a lenghthy checkin he guided us into the park to our site. What a huge mistake! The paved road turned into a 8-9 ft. road through a forest of uncut low hanging trees. I was forced to continue through scratching the rig. Some large branches were a my eye level spanning the road. When he got me to the site there was no way to maneuver into it. I asked for a better site. That was worse. I said I wanted out of this forest and a refund. I had to continue further through trees to get out. He could not arrange the refund. I spent a half hour on the phone with the Florida office trying to get my refund. The office there was incredibly inept and I still don't know if I have my refund. We had to leave and stayed in a Wal-Mart lot overnight. Also while in Pine Acres, I overheard someone call the office saying they had been robbed there. Definitely AVOID this park. There was no free Wi-Fi either as advertised in Passport. The $20 was a Passport price. - Sunluvr

I've read some of the other posts and wanted to validate them. Those that said this is NOT a family park are correct. This campground unfortunately is a party zone. It is not a place for children unless all you want your children to see are beer drinking, tattooed, smokers EVERYWHERE. This is not a quiet park at all. The park often smells of sewer in the mornings. The seasonals think they run the place and they do. They do not observe quiet hours. The bathrooms are "eh". Golf carts, motorcycles, and pickups drive way to fast for all the little ones running around. Lastly as the other poster mentioned, yes, there is a man that chops wood in a speedo at 1:00 a.m. I will not return, nor will I recommend. I am posting only to save someone else from experiencing this. - plum

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

It is certainly off the beaten path deep into the countryside off the main roadway reached by a gravel road. The roadway and pull-thru sites are gravel with a picnic table, fire pit and full hookups with cable TV. The lake, Tuxbury Pond, was not very pretty when we were there as it was full of weeds. They have 2 pools and a playground. - Michael Kibler

Have stayed here twice will not stay again. Difficult to find. The roads are in terrible condition. Deep ruts everywhere, trees need to be trimmed. WiFi only at the pavilion and that was hit or miss. Some sites had electric and water at one end and sewer at the other end. No trash dumpsters in the CG, have to drive out the main entrance to find one and no trash pickup. Guest fees $10.
Positives: New owners in process of repairing roads. Lots of activities for kids and adults. Good water pressure.
One staff member was exceptional, MOD not so much.
Our nightly fee included Thousand Trails discount and a 25 percent off special. - Sleeps Two

This is an update to my previous review. Things have vastly improved here at Tuxbury Pond this year. This is our 3rd year. The crew is working very hard and the store is ... well it's now like a REAL STORE, fully stocked and always open. Very friendly management and many new faces have really made a tremendous difference. Although we do not participate in the family activities, there's no doubt the kids and families are having a blast. The lagoon is very nice and our grandchildren really enjoy it. Only complaints are additional Wi-Fi would be greatly appreciated, as there is only one location as far as I know, and the road to enter is still very bumpy. However once you enter you do have an alternate EXIT to avoid the bumpy road. This is a BIG and very beautiful property. - Eric & Gayle

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. - Mooney 201 Pilot

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. - Happy Camper X2

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. - dandg

Stay away. Mostly old seasonals resembles a trailer park. Sites are very tight but not as narrow as the roads. Dump station did not work because of an on going root problem. - cbshea02

Stayed at this large campground in a 36' coach. Mostly permanents. Seven or eight pull thrus. Over priced for what you get! My site (X-15) was a back-in. High in the back, causing need for boards under front tires. Also needed extra steps for entry door. With slope, the rain drained to the front and causing mud and pine needles at door. Nothing that a 5 yard load of gravel could not fix!!! Would NOT stay again! - Johnr7

Beautiful park. We had a very long, paved, pull-through site that was nice and level. Park is well located to do things in Boston or up in Maine. Cell service for Verizon was good and Sprint was decent, but not great. We would definitely stay here again. - 5nomads

Nice park, mostly seasonals. Long trip to our site up the long and winding road, but the site was very spacious and everything worked. I agree with another reviewer in that the price is above average considering there is no cable nor wifi at the sites. Since we were at the top of the campground our Dish satellite did work, as did our Verizon hot spot. Staff was friendly and the campground was very well kept. - Lucky Lady from Florida
