This place was very busy. We asked for a site with full hook-ups and they put us in a pull-thru site (yay!) but it didn't have sewer (boo!). We asked if they had a site with full hook-ups and they said they did but it was a short and narrow site. We would just barely fit but we were welcome to check it out and if we wanted to take it to let them know. They weren't kidding, the site was very short and narrow so we stayed in the pull-thru site. They only had the honey wagon on Monday and Tuesdays so we were not able to utilize that service either. We ended up cutting our visit a day short. We checked out the showers and while they appeared to be clean, they were old and the floors were always wet so we didn't want to use them. Our site was long but narrow and our neighbor, who was a seasonal patron, had some of his items (dog pen, 2 screen houses), extending into our site some, which made heading over to take care of our hookups awkward. There were mostly seasonal patrons who were all very friendly as were the staff. Like I mentioned earlier, it was a busy place with dogs barking at 6 am and kids riding bikes shortly after. If you are looking for a place with lots of friendly people and activities, this would be a great place to visit but with a smaller camper. If you are looking for a more quiet experience, you may not enjoy your stay. - DeannaS

Family CG with lots for the kids to do. I like the private fishing pond and the pool. Ocean is nearby and an easy ride to get to. Gravel roads are narrow and might be difficult for a big rig.
I camped here in my VW Westfalia. - JudoJeff

Nice large, wooded campground. Lots of seasonals but they are kept up. Pool looked good but we did not use. Lots for kids to do and campground gets busy on weekends. Minor computer problem on check in but they assigned us a site and we went back later to pay. We had a gravel pull-through site with room for slideout and only needed a little leveling. No problems with utilities. Restrooms are older but kept clean. We would camp here again. - 21fbrs

Definatly a family friendly park. Lots of kids, it was their Christmas in July event.
The park is off the beaten path and interesting to get too.
The sites are large but a bit hilly.
My biggest gripe is the early arrival charge of $5 an hour and. a $3 per dog charge. Because they can. - User780

We used the park as our home base for our family activities off -site so we did not utilize the most of the parks amenities. Site was large and nice. Staff was very friendly. On site "restaurant" was good but not open every day. We plan on going back when we can spend sometime relaxing at the park. Pool slide looked great but we did not have time to use it and as others have said it is ala cart.
The knocks: my site was very difficult to get into due to trees at entrance to site and a huge rock where my truck needed to swing. With the help of a seasonal RVer and wife I used a semi-perpendicular road for my approach. I was backing blind so their help was greatly appreciated.
This one is stupid but the speed bumps are crazy large! Don't bring your Ferrari or even your Vette...you will hit bottom. :-)
Overall 8.5 rating. - Bandguy

My wife and I use a campground as a base from which to do other things in the area so I can't really address activities those with kids might want to know about. It did appear they had several things going on while we were there. Nice camp store.
The thing we noticed most was the lots are HUGE compared to most other campgrounds. We were there on July 4th weekend and the campground was full. The power was a little wimpy on a hot day. We got down to 107v with the AC on. I switched to gas for the water heater then.
Good cell signal so the cell router worked well. Water pressure was good. We were very late in looking for a site and ended up with a water/electric site, but a honey wagon comes by twice a week for $15 a time. They missed us the first time, but showed up within minutes after I let the office know no one had been there.
All in all, we'd definitely go again. - pitman44

Camped here for one night during the week. Office staff was super nice on check-in. Park was empty because it's past the season and during the week. Can't imagine what the place is like when it's filled up! Too few bathrooms for too many people, I'd bet. Bathrooms were clean but old and rundown.
The beach looked nice, but too small for even 100 people, never mind the crowds that must gather from over 800 campsites. Bikes would be a good idea to bring here, everything is a bit too far to walk, and no place to park a car.
No amenities of any kind, strict no alcohol, no nudity, no cutting of trees.
(Where's the fun in that? If I can't drink beer while cutting down the woods naked, ....) It really is a lovely park and we enjoyed our stay.
The sites are all different sizes and layouts, some useless due to rocks and tree roots, others wide open and perfect. We camped here in our VW Westfalia camper. - JudoJeff

Stayed at this campground many times over the years. Great location to the only real asset RI has which are their beaches. As far as the campground goes it is not given the maintenance it requires to offer safe access to the facility. Tree limbs are hanging to low everywhere. The state of RI like other north eastern states employ lazy personal that are there for the check instead of the pride of having a descent job with yes responsibilities. I witnessed the campground staff taking their afternoon nap deep off the trail on at least two occasions. We all know this will never change. It's to bad because this campground has more potential than it state is giving it. - tinman

Great campground. We were at site 110 on Labor Day weekend. It is right at the boat ramp so there was constant activity. Early morning wakes up with boats backing in and the fishermen shouting directions. The camp itself is great. This was our third trip here. - wfmdfm

It has filthy outdated restrooms. There are no activities for families or children. The playground consists of 2 swings. Water Hook-ups on sites are in a hole in the ground, very unsanitary. The sites are very close together. We would not stay here again. - Fulltimers8

The bathrooms were outdated and smelled. The bathroom was filthy. I would never stay here again. The campground is out in the middle of nowhere. - bonitap62

If you want peace and quiet, this is the perfect place to be. But to us that was the only reason to stay here. It is rather difficult to get to in our 40 ft. motorhome. The road is narrow with low hanging branches. Our site was very uneven and it was rather hard to level our rig. There was no designated spot for a dog walk, so we were always afraid we were somewhere we shouldn't have been. There was cable at each spot, but it was only available if you were staying for the season - not very accommodating. It was close to Providence, Newport, and Mystic. I don't think we would ever stay here again. - bobnpat

This is a pretty new park so it is in really great shape. The trees are very small since they are fairly young. It is a huge park but doesn't feel crowded. The playground area/pool area are great for kids. They had fun activities for kids. All utilities worked well and our satellite was good. Even their WIFI was great. Sites were fairly level. Probably the only complaint is the road coming in is dirt/gravel and has lots of bumps. They would be out spraying water on it to keep the dust down, but it was very bumpy. They did have a laundry, but there were only 2 washers and 3 dryers for a very large park. Would stay here again if in the area. - jacknpeg

Brand new park with generous common areas and nicely laid-out sites. Roads are dirt, sites are level packed crushed stone with grass between. Utility connections are easy with good locations. Very good Verizon 4G LTE, strong water pressure. Excellent pavilion and pool area. We took advantage of an end-of-season special price. - jbrucemagon

This is a good sized campground with a huge variety of sites. We stayed in a 60' pull thru that was slightly up-hill with a bit of a drop-off at the rear. We pulled the rig to the front of the site and parked the truck in the rear. The other pull thru's around us were landscaped similarly. The access roads and pads are gravel. Expect things to get a bit dusty with traffic thru the park. Site width is ok although the campfire ring in the site next to us was placed way too close to our rig for our comfort if someone had decided to use it while we were there. The campground is largely wide-open which is great for those with satellite. There are young plantings at every site which will provide shade a few years down the road. Water pressure was very good and the 50amp power was stable as we ran both A/C when temps soared into the upper 80's. Cable TV service was very good. Wi-fi was ok but intermittent. I had to use our hotspot periodically to maintain a useable service. Their recreation park is first rate. They have every imaginable game (horseshoes, bocce, ladder golf, shuffleboard, volleyball etc.) available with all the parts and pieces right there ready to use. The pool and hot tub were immaculately clean and well maintained. The office staff were attentive and provided helpful information about the area. We enjoyed our stay and would come back again. - Born2Roam

This is a very big and busy RV park. Right off 95, but noise wasn't an issue. Given its location, I would say $51/night was a good price, but this was for water and 30 amp only. Full service sites are limited. Also, using your own washer is prohibited due to well/septic. Our site was level with grass/dirt; some trees in our section, many in other sections. Our particular site was roomy, but the driving lanes are a little on the narrow side.
Very well-run park with an abundance of family-oriented activities. (Pools, basketball, volleyball, shuffleboard, outdoor movie night - could go on and on.) Ver friendly staff. There were children everywhere, all well-behaved. Lots of seasonal trailers, some older. I would venture that this is a popular weekend destination for locals.
Would definitely stay here again, but with better planning so as to book a full-service, 50 amp site. - Milo&Millie

This Campground was an old apple orchard. The sites are very close together in the open sun and next to the highway. The pool was nice and the campground was very clean. - emily0707

Stayed the night there on our way north. Very clean and organized campground. It had 2 nice pools a fully stocked store, cable and WiFi. There seemed to be a lot of seasonal campers there, although there wasn't the usual seasonal clutter. All in all it was a nice place. There are no road signs saying KOA this way. Had to follow GPS once off the freeway and entrance is a little confusing, as I thought I was entering someone's driveway. It would help to have small KOA signs with arrows to show the way. Our RV is 38' long. - Powerstroke

Wanted a quiet campground and one that had hook ups, which is limited on RI shoreline. Very basic, but that's what we wanted - we are retirees. Plus close to shoreline/Matunock Restaurants/quiet little beaches on shoreline. Has a bass lake across the street which was lovely. Teenagers in park were out late, doing donut holes with golf cart on basketball court. Facilities were adequate/no campground store. Would go back again. Owner friendly and accommodating & liked 24 hour security. - Ontheroadagain 3

The staff was friendly and helpful.There were many seasonal sites beyond the transient area.The transient area contained a bathroom / shower building which was dated but clean,also a playground.The pond is located some distance from the transient area and is across the road.The sites are quite sandy,fairly level and do not impress. - User2564
Aug 2014 - $35.00
Campground very convenient to area beaches and attractions. Mostly seasonal weekenders but transient sites are large. No sewer but allowed to dump grey water on ground. A negative are the noisy gas golf carts racing around. They do not seem to abide by the 5 MPH speed limit. Would probably camp here again but not near the main road. Would be quieter that way. - DZD

This is definitely one of the better maintained campgrounds we have stayed at. Jim and Lin really care about the grounds as owners and it shows. The site itself was more than large enough for our 35' fifth wheel and truck. There was no grass at the site, but plenty just down the road for walking the dogs. Even though we stayed over Labor Day weekend, we had very few campers around us, making for a very quiet stay. The utilities were great and wifi was solid, no cable but we picked up the local channels over our antenna. Verizon cell coverage was fine. The laundry had two washers and two dryers, at $1.75 each. It is about a 20 minute drive to Mystic, but aside from that, there is nothing immediately around the campground. If you're looking for a nice quiet campground to spend some time, this is for you. - pfogleboch

Road to park has overhanging trees, but they've been "trimmed" by previous RV's. Dirt sites and roads make for dirty rigs, and the trees over the sites drop tons of stuff onto roof and awnings. Quite a few creepy-crawlies too, but all that's to be expected in the woods. However, the sites are very large, and the pond and grass areas are very nice. Very quiet area. Owners are extremely nice and helpful. Wifi excellent. Only a handful of sites can put up a dish (due to the trees). No cable, but could get a few channels with antenna. Phone service (Verizon) good. - OTR again

I can't say enough about this campground, the place is absolutely beautiful!
Campsites are big and private, and the owners are the best! Come here once and like us, you will hooked! - Virginia c

If you are looking for a place to escape the madness of I-95, this is pretty good choice. H U G E campsites. As one camper told me this is "real" camping with some extra benefits. You are in the middle of the woods, with direct access to a good size semi private fishing lake (no campsites on lake). There is crystal clear pond to swim in and a long lane to walk on, and the state park is all around you of you want to explore it. While the wifi is slow, you can get your email. Verizon cell service allowed texting, but calls required a Wilson Booster. The cable is excellent, and the water makes good coffee. While there isn't a sewer connection, you can connect your gray water to a sewer pipe on most of the sites with an old garden hose. There is a place to empty the black tank on the way out. We were here in late June during the week. There are a lot of seasonal campsites set up (mostly newer with nice decks), the owners didn't seem to be present so I am guessing they come up for the week end. We were set up in the far end of the campground in a clearing. But there were other open sites in the trees if we wanted them. We just wanted easy in and out and they gave us this one. Owners live on site and guided us on to site. I would come back again. Definitely should be on your list if looking for seasonal escape. - Tom & Marilyn

We were traveling through the area and needed an over night stop. Based on the previous reviews, I picked this CG. We arrived after the office closed (5pm) and the door had phone numbers to call. But based on the following we chose not to stay here. 1) Very seasonal, 2) did not look the best in our judgement, 3) had to be 10+ miles off the main road, and 4) no activity that we could find. It could be a nice place to stay, but just not to our liking. - Dennis D

We stayed here on opening weekend. It is a quiet family campground. We were escorted to our site. Site was spacious, grassy and had large pine trees. No shrubs or small trees to speak of for privacy between sites. We were the only transient campers in the campground, everyone else was seasonal, so we felt a little out of place. The staff was very friendly. A handful of seasonals waved or said hello. Everyone had golf carts and used them a lot. We had a good time. Our kids rode bikes, played on the playground, played in the game room and went fishing in the pond. The bathrooms and showers were clean, the camp store was well stocked. We might give this campground another try, but definitely later in the season when other 'weekenders' are there. - JJZS
