Our first time here as a KOA, we were last here just before they changed. This campground continues to amaze me. We have been coming here since 2011 and the changes and upgrades they have made are wonderful. Since our last visit they have updated a number of sites to what KOA seems to like. We had a beautiful pull through site with a cement patio, great fire pit and a beautiful table and chairs. Every part of this campground is very nice. The owners, their kids and the staff are all wonderful and helpful. They make it a very pleasant atmosphere. The weather did not allow us to enjoy the pool area as we had hoped but we just enjoyed our site and burning the wagon of wood that was delivered to our site. We always look forward to our camping experiences here. We camped at Strafford / Lake Winnipesaukee South KOA in a Travel Trailer.

The new name for this facility is the Strafford KOA. Since they just made the change they honored our Good Sam discount.

The staff are very friendly and accommodating. The overall campground is well maintained and the sites are spacious. Would definitely visit this campground again. We camped at Strafford / Lake Winnipesaukee South KOA in a Travel Trailer.

This is a very clean and very friendly park. The office/store staff are very nice as are the owners. The hookups at each site are very up to date and work very good. The campground is maintained very nice and everything looked great. We try to get here every year as we love it and fine it very peaceful. The pool complex is very nice and many are able to enjoy it. I was a holiday weekend but the noise was not bad at all, maybe a camper or two but no issues. Seasonal camps are neat and although there are golf carts, most all drive very slow and responsible.

We spent two nights here just at the end of the park's season so services were limited. It is a green, scenic place and is very quiet and restful. There are only a few spaces for big rigs and no pull-thrus. We unhooked the car and backed into our site and it was fine. We camped at Strafford / Lake Winnipesaukee South KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The region is full of colonial architecture and lovely, green, rolling hills. The RV park is a bit hard to find the first time, but fine after that. Famous lakeside communities surround neighboring Lake Winnipesaukee, and an excursion of the steamboat tops-off any visit. We also recommend visiting the "Castle in the Clouds," a remarkable mountain-top, stone mansion turned into a museum, complete with a fine restaurant.

We love this campground, this was our 4th trip there. Our first time since the water slide and splash park has opened. We were able to enjoy that new area as well as the pool, it was very relaxing. Staff and seasonals were very friendly, the store is well stocked and sites are large. Just about everything about this campground is great, the only thing that could be better would be the wifi. We have already booked a weekend for next year. We camped at Strafford / Lake Winnipesaukee South KOA in a Travel Trailer.

We really enjoyed our campsite - about 65% are seasonal but our site was somewhat secluded in a corner and it was an easy back-in. Nice shade. Did have to level one side with boards with little effort. Wife did laundry and it was clean and efficient. We stayed 5 nights and would stay again. Great staff! We camped at Strafford / Lake Winnipesaukee South KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This place gets better every time we go, we love it here. Brought some friends with us this time and we had 3 great sites that backed up to woods. Sites were large with good hook ups. They are currently building a water slide and splash park to go along with their pool and pond. We took a walk and there is not a site we would not want. If we were to ever go seasonal again, this would be the place. Staff was very friendly and all had a great time. We camped at Strafford / Lake Winnipesaukee South KOA in a Travel Trailer.

It has been a bit crazy for me and my family lately and we did not plan on camping this weekend but...we did. Dropping our youngest off at college Friday morning and seeing all the campers heading out made us want to go. We were making the 5 hour round trip to drop and then back to have my 2nd Chemo treatment and we started calling around and found an open site at Crown Point. We made it there by 7 pm and were set up in an hour cooking dinner by 8. This was our very first trip just the 2 of us in 24 years. The campground is just nice, real nice. Clean, quiet, friendly is what we kept saying. Our site was great, somewhat of a corner pull through which worked out great. We were able to relax and just enjoy being outside together doing what we like to do. The dog was along so she loved it as well. We took walks, sat under the awning with our coffee, cooked, played some cards and it was great. We really like this place. There are seasonals here - they are neat and friendly and the golf carts go slow and are not an issue. We are already planning a return trip probably for next year. We camped at Strafford / Lake Winnipesaukee South KOA in a Travel Trailer.

We decided to do Crownpoint for a quick getaway as we only live 45 mins from the place. It is in a very country location not near any larger city, so don't plan on going out to dinner anywhere close. When we checked in, we heard the check in employee tell our friends who were also checking in: "We are very strict on our pool rules." She was right, they are strict. You cannot use the slide located in the pond without a life preserver. My kids have gone to water parks on bigger slides and not needed life preservers; second, as an adult who swims well, I'm not wearing a life preserver. The pool was super clean, and the deck and chairs very nice! However, they advertise it is heated, but it was not heated when we went in July. Therefore, it was COLD, but the air temps were in the 80's and full sun, so I found it refreshing. My husband and kids found it too cold. The campground's sites are kind of close together, but we were there with friends, so we didn't mind. This campground is mostly seasonals, so there are a limited amount of sites for weekenders. Overall, we had a very good quick weekend getaway and the place is very clean, so we would go again. We camped at Strafford / Lake Winnipesaukee South KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Very clean campground, nice sites, very clean bathrooms too. There is a small pond, w/ 2 slides, small laundry, game room, clean newer playground. We enjoyed campging here, my only negative is A LOT of rules and STRICTLY enforced. When we asked if our dog could swim in the pond, we were told yes, but only if he had a leash on, which unfortunate for us I guess is too dangerous for the animal. Our boys were yelled at for not having a life vest on at the slide in the pond, which I understand being spoke too, but not clearly yelled at, and it is posted swim at your own risk. All in all, it is a very nice campground, I just have a problem with the strict rules and being yelled at and not just spoken too. We camped at Strafford / Lake Winnipesaukee South KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This was a very enjoyable campground. We had a good site, some are better than others. Seasonals mixed throughout with some golf carts that were well controlled. Fishing pond was fun and they had a DJ over the weekend. Will most likely return at some point. We camped at Strafford / Lake Winnipesaukee South KOA in a Travel Trailer.

This is a great small campground. At least it feels small. We have camped here many times and have loved it each and every time. They have some planned activities; catch and release fishing; a pond and swimming pool to swim in with 2 slides for all ages (one is near the waters edge for the younger kids). I have never seen this place look bad; it is very well taken care of and even the fulltime campers are very nice and clean. The only thing that I wish they would have is a small laundry. Other than that it’s the best place We camped at Strafford / Lake Winnipesaukee South KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We have camped here several times, but this weekend was the first time in the last 4 years. The new owners have made many positive improvements. There are more three way sites, and all the electric has been upgraded. Some sites have cable, and I'm sure that will be expanded in the future. Campground was close to full, but very quiet. Landscaping has also been upgraded. Still some improvement needed but they are headed in the right direction. We camped at Strafford / Lake Winnipesaukee South KOA in a Travel Trailer.
