This is a very well maintained campground. The owner is very friendly and makes it a point to remember your name. Every time he saw us he asked if everything was ok. The sites are level grass with plenty of room in between campers. The utilities worked fine. We had W/E/S, 50A. We could not get the WIFI signal at our site. We did go up to the office to use it though and it worked fine. This is a very family friendly campground. They rent kayaks/canoes/etc. and will shuttle you up the river to launch or you can launch right in the campground. The river runs right next to the campground and the there is a very nice rail trail that you can access from a trail right out of the park. I really wanted to rate this park a 10, but the real negative to this park is the road noise. You can't even see the road as the river and trees are in between, but the road noise is pretty loud. We would definitely stay here again. They are planning to add more W/E/S sites, which will be nice. There was no shade at the FHU sites, but trees are planted so it is just a matter of time before they are shaded. We camped at Ashuelot River Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Right on the river in a small New England town. Don't let the drive in scare you, keep going. Campground was beautifully maintained with large freshly mown grass pads, the dogs lounged in comfort. Water pressure was low which meant switching on the pump to shower but that's the only minor negative. Dump station conveniently located at the exit, but had electric and water at the site. Overall a great quiet place to relax that we stopped at by chance. Very convenient to Keene NH which had a good food Co-op. We camped at Ashuelot River Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Very casual and laid back campground.Under new management from what I understand.New owner tries to make things easy for campers but may be slightly upfront if you didn't hear or understand something he said. RV sites were in the open field with lots of sunshine. Sites were set up intelligently with 15,30 and 50amp services. Water of course also.Nice lazy river flows next to campground where my dog could go swimming.I believe there was a game room for kids and the office did have some supplies if you forgot or ran out of something.There was no swimming pool.There was some trails in the woods you could walk on. I would consider camping here again. We camped at Ashuelot River Campground in a Travel Trailer.

There are 7 sites with w/e/s and 12 sites with w/e and the rest are excellent tent sites. There is one cabin and a second being restored. A small game room as well as a playground for small children is available. The campground is well groomed and well kept. There is fishing and canoeing/kayaking on the Ashuelot River. It is a very quiet campground and well managed. There is a lot to see and do nearby, from theater to stock car racing. Nearby is the city of Keene and Keene State College, lots of stores and eateries. We camped at Ashuelot River Campground in a Motorhome.

Very Happy. This campground is very quiet. No activities this time of year but rec hall with some games and jungle gym for kids. Really, better campground for singles and those w/out kids. Nice, big spaces. Full hookup sites are a little smaller. 1 bath house was clean. Very friendly owners who help where needed. Nice and close to local cities w/beautiful site seeing spots. Check out Pumpkin Festival this time of year. pumkinfestival.org Close to fairgrounds which bus you into the festival. Festival was awesome. Food was incredible and very inexpensive. Gotta see this during the day and at night. Loved the campground and the quietness. We camped at Ashuelot River Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

A simple campground, no frills, just your quiet, beautiful campground. If you are looking for activities to fill your children's day this probably isn't the place. They have a small playground and arcade but no organized activities. This is the type of campground we are drawn to, no golf carts flying around, small and very friendly staff. I would not hesitate to go back to this little gem! We camped at Ashuelot River Campground in a Travel Trailer.
