31 Parks near Chepachet, Rhode Island
Aug 2016 - $50.00
We were given site #. Map and signage in park poor. Our site had 18 inch tall weeds, no table, no fire pit. Water hookup and electric hook up are not close together. Office staff not very helpful trying to get our group, 3 sites situated elsewhere. The first site was located near old construction vehicles and piles of construction debris.
Our second night we were frightened by a woman wandering into our site yelling at 12:30 am. We called the office no answer. We had to call 911. Woman was taken away and we and others nearby were questioned.
The next day there was no electricity or running water. Entire facility lost power a short time on Saturday and there was none on Sunday. There was no running water or working toilets or showers on Sunday.
We left early to go home.
I have made numerous attempts to speak with someone in charge. The office will not give me the manager's name. I left my contact information but was told: "Don't expect that anyone will call you back."
Overall camp does not look maintained and facilities are not modern or clean. Customer service was extremely poor. - Lynn Botelho

Upon checking in I had to wait almost 45 minutes to be sent to a site that was occupied. I was charged extra for my 2 companion/service dogs. There is nothing much for kids to do, they say they have kid activities but nothing fantastic. It would be nice if there was a pool but the lake was okay. Their modern bathrooms might have been modern in 1980 but the machine to regulate the 25 cent showers (yes you must pay 25 cents) was on point (working properly) with warm/cold water. The campground Is full of old junk construction equipment. Find another place, you will be thankful you did. - Melissa N

We arrived and first had to pay extra for our 2 dogs. A lab, and a 15 lb rescue. We were then told no motorcycles allowed in the park! Its our only transportation! We are quiet grandparents, and had to park the bike near the park office with other bikes. The walk to our bike from our site was 1/2 mile. We were sent to a site, but it was occupied. When I called the office, they sent Us to another, that was occupied! They then proceeded to send us into an area that was too tight for our 37' motorhome. We backed into a rock trying to get out. We finally picked a site that was huge, and private. The lake was beautiful, the campground quiet. The lady that owns the place shouldn't be in the business of working with people. I asked for a golf cart ride to our site, as I have a lung disease. She told me flat out NO! The girls answering the phone at the desk admitted they don't know what size campers fit into the sites. Huge beautiful park. - Cyclegirl00

This is a difficult one to review. The sites are all different. We were out in the middle of a huge grass field that had a dirt, extremely dusty road dividing it. Every time a vehicle drove by we were covered in dust. There was no sitting outside. There were small travel trailer sites all along the perimeter. Some sites looked very unlevel. Its definitely hit or miss here. Old campground. For our two night layover it was fine but would not stay longer. Very overpriced. - Lin and Rich

First, a small correction. While the mailing address of this CG may be Greenville, the physical location (and GPS locatable position) is in North Scituate, RI.
This whole operation is orientated to their seasonals. They seem to look at transients as bothers, at best. The woman in the office could have cared less if we could ever find our assigned site, which turned out to be in the middle of an open field with the welcoming allure of a parking lot. Then, with lots of open spaces, they jammed late arrivals in right next to us.
The laundry was acceptable, but nothing special. One dryer took our money and then didn't work. Nobody to complain to at night.
This was the closest place I could find to the Providence Airport (to send out grandson home) but we will not be staying here again. - Alworth

We stayed here over a week. The site we parked on was an open, grass, pull-through area with tents around the perimeter. We found the management very friendly and helpful. The site was level, easy to park, and had full hook-ups. We were comfortable leaving our rig during the day while we were sight-seeing and visiting. This is a big, sprawling campground. As stated, it has a lot of live-ins, is very rustic and has a bumpy wooded access road. We are not fans of campfires and it seems that is analogous to camping in RI. Every site had a fire pit that most campers burned constantly. We kept closed with the air running. I would not use their laundry room. We will stay here again as it suited our needs. Our rig is over 40'. - Tom&Sophie

Owners seemed less than thrilled to have us there. We are full-timers and move frequently. We think we are ideal campers (no kids, no dogs, quiet, no parties, etc.). It was very strange, we felt like we were always being 'watched' so they could tell us we were doing something wrong. They did tell us we were driving too fast but it was hard for us to believe because the roads were dirt and uneven with rocks so who would drive fast?? We were in a back in spot that was very hard to maneuver around all the tree limbs. They say they are big rig friendly but we felt it was very tight for our 35 ft. rig. Turning corners was a major effort have to back up to miss large boulders on one side and tree limbs on the other. We did have a very nice fire pit. The dump station is very hard to get to and is on the wrong side for most RVs. We won't be going back here. - RunAroundSue

This RI state park is very nicely laid out, each site spacious. This time of year, the park was almost empty and we were lucky to be able to chose the site that would work well for our 40' big rig. Roads and sites are gravel, some more level than others, and some with trees in the wrong places! Big rig owners should know which site they are reserving. No utilities but park is clean and appears well-maintained. Located on the Bowdish Reservoir there are swimming and boat launch areas. Many trails around as well. For geocachers, a few caches within the park boundary. - DiplomatTraveler

Good Verizon voice & data. NO DUMP STATION! Limited drinking water access. Some sites very unlevel and due to reservation system, cannot change sites. I do not recommend this campground for anyone with an RV unless they are very familiar with the specific campsites. Price listed for out of state campers plus reservation fees. We stayed 5 nights. - earlymun

This is a beautiful area on Bowdish Reservoir. Campground is well laid out with wooded sites for both tents and larger campers. There are no hookups, showers or flush toilets. Very well maintained porta-johns are scattered throughout campground. We saw staff continually cleaning and stocking them. Very quiet and peaceful. Would be a ten, except no pump out station. Swimming is in reservoir, also a boat launch. Many hiking trails. Excellent value for Rhode Island! - Gala62

We stayed 2 nights. We were in a group of 4 sites together. Good signage, easy to find site which was raked and clean. Fire pit cleaned as well. We used bathrooms and showers. Both were well maintained, very clean, a little outdated. No problems with electricity. Nice pool and many activities. It was a theme weekend. Great snack area and kid activities. I would visit again! - Lynn Botelho

The previous reviews have most of the points I saw. The sites are very close and you will need to watch out for large rocks and trees. They did not have a sewer hook up and yet charged to dump. The camp is now selling memberships again as the original memberships are now expiring after 30 years and being resold. If you forget to check out and return the entry card, you will be charged $50.00. There was no assistance in finding my site and the map is not to scale. The hook ups required a second water hose and an extension electrical cord. - A hitch and hop

Great activities, clean areas, nice pool. Only issue was the campsites were very close together. Seemed like a great family environment. - CamperRay

This campground used to be a great family place, however in recent years it has seriously gone downhill, as you can see by its dated facilities and drastic decline in seasonal campers. The basketball court has not been refinished in a long time, the park is constantly swarming with hornets and bees, and the beach area is filthy. The events they hold are mediocre at best, with the adult events turning into a bunch of people getting drunk and obnoxious quickly. The events for kids are repetitive and poorly hosted and attended. The drug use in this campground has seriously increased and campers are regularly broken into and stolen from. Seasonal campers are unwelcoming to weekend visitors. - CamperRay

This seemed like mostly seasonal sites with additions built onto trailers. There was one site- "Jake's Place" that had so much junk on it (I mean junk) that the theme from "Sanford and Son" came into my head every time that I walked by it. The water in the cove looked low, as if it had been drained. The pool was clean. The staff was friendly. There were activities every night in the rec hall until 11. This wasn't a peaceful experience that we were looking for. I don't think we will go back. - RIcamper

The sites were pretty much out in the open, with very little privacy, ours was just dirt, although we did see some were grassy. The seasonals were not very welcoming. We also had trouble getting a pizza delivered, with the pizza places telling us that there has been trouble at this campground in the past. The bathrooms were dirty. To be fair, the lake is very nice, but not nice enough to stay here again. - JewelsRDH

Camp is needing some overall updating. It is pleasant with a pond for the kids, though parents weren't watching them. Minature golf is not kept up and needs a lot of TLC. Pool was very clean and well kept. Restrooms were not bad. I hear the camp is for sale and it looks as if it needs someone to bring it into this year, but not bad in general. We would stay there again. Note: They only accept cash and pets must be less than 25 lbs. - ctreichel

Very limited Verizon phone service. Did not get WiFi and hot spot would not work. Stayed 3 nights because of location. Mostly permanent sites. - Dick Schmidt

Very shady spots in the woods. There are safari sites too. We were there on July 4th weekend. They had a good band on Saturday night. Pet friendly but pets are not allowed in swimming area and rec halls. Horseshoes, soccer fields and activities for children. We'll be back. - RIcamper

This is a lovely, small COE park located in the woods with water and electric hook ups (there is a dump station). The roads are gravel and the sites are some sort of dirt/sand. There is a steepish hill to climb to get up to the camping loop and no one seemed to have trouble. Sites and roads are big enough for big rigs. Our assigned site was immaculate having been raked (and it was a large site) and the fire pit was clean. We are traveling with a motorcycle tent trailer so clean bathrooms are important to us and these were great. The toilet stalls are some of the roomiest I have seen and even though there is just one shower each for men and women, it was spacious with plenty of room for clothing and toiletries. Interaction with the staff was pleasant. Verizon cell and hot spot worked well. Just a couple of minor negatives. The trash dumpster is all the way outside the swing arm gate exiting the campground and they do not sell any ice. Not sure why more people do not utilize this campground because it is wonderful. We would return if ever in the area again. - roadking

We most enjoy going to COA sites and this one did not disappoint. Each site was equipped with water and electric and a picnic table. The setting for each was so peaceful. we had our 20 foot travel trailer and loved just sitting in our comfy chairs and enjoying watching the leaves sway in the trees, the birds come and go and just the forest setting. There are two hosts on site and they take turns working five days on and five days off. They were both pleasant and helpful when assistance was needed. There is a dump site on the way out.
There is a boat launch site and the water looks so welcoming but apparently the water is hazardous to swim in so swimming is not allowed. Though we did not play, many people were availing themselves of the disc golf. The playground is conveniently located as is fire wood for purchase at the host location. There are many hiking trails and the ones along the water are easy to traverse. A most welcoming campground. - John-Jean

I chose this campground because I wanted to be able to make easy day trips to both Newport and Providence and this proved to be well situated for that. There are gravel driveways and grassy sites which included a picnic table. The transient sites are in a large open area with mostly pull through sites. We had a 30 amp electric, full hookup site. They offer free WiFi that worked very well for us. There is a cell tower within sight so our AT&T signal was strong, around -77 dBm. There is a pool, although we didn't make use of it. The bathroom was OK, somewhat rustic but generally clean, however, it could use more light. The owners seem to be part time and are absent for hours at a time and may take some time to even return your call. We paid $40 per night. They accept cash or check only. - Coopsecondact

Small dogs allowed but the campground brochure clearly states "NO DOG WALKING". Full hook up 30 amp sites, level pull throughs. Many seasonals, although they are all friendly. About ten miles to shopping and restaurants. Nice pool, quiet. Brochure also states no air conditioners and no electric heaters. Some open sites, some shady sites. Good AT&T cell phone signal. Cash/checks only, no credit cards. - RV Vagabonds
