This was not a friendly or easy campground to check into. There's a huge extensive form to fill out (too much information) which we've never had before and we're full-time RVers. She was not very nice or helpful. This is mostly an old trailer park, we had to go to a separate road and gate to camp in a trashy unlevel field. The road in is very bumpy. The bathrooms were clean but smelled bad. Showers were old & worn and very small (not everyone would fit in them for sure). Dump station is kept locked. We had to go to help my sister for a week otherwise I would have left. I don't recommend this park! - Moseyin

Worst cg we have stayed at yet. Dirt roads with large rocks and potholes. Mgmt tried to put us in a dirt field without fhu. Spoke with mgmt to get that changed to a fhu with some grass. Site looked reasonably level but ended up with a high step when all said and done. Picnic table was in very poor condition. 50amp service would not manage our ACs and other appliances. The maintenance man tried to say no 50amp service would support our big rig. This is soooo incorrect. No problem anywhere else. Smelled bad by bathroom. Probably from the greasy chicken griller trailer. People had dogs off the leash. Another group was playing loud music. Would not recommend this place to anyone. - FT Travelers3

New owner as of last fall and he is making improvements as he can. The entrance road is horrible. It is gravel and full of potholes. Transient camping is pretty much in an open field. Campground caters to seasonals as we have found to be the case in most independent campgrounds in the Northeast. This could be a good campground in a couple years. - Bamagolfer

Very nice park. We stayed 12 days and were very satisfied. The only reason I didn't give the value higher stars was that I feel it is overpriced...but that is the area. The site was roomy and fairly level. Had good internet and cable TV. The site we had felt pretty private and was shady most of the day. We would definitely stay here again if in the area. - GranNan06

This is an older park with lots of seasonal RV that aren't in the best of shape. Park opened in 1968. Entrance is gated with large bushes encroaching into the entrance lane. Just inches to spare on the gate arm and I hit the bush when entering through gate. 50 Amp service, leg 1 - 121v, leg 2 - 117v. Water pressure 52. Assigned a 'pull thru' right at the entrance gate with traffic going through the gate all night long. Actually it really should be a back in. VERY LOUD all four nights we were there. The trailer behind us did loud karotte every night until well passed 1 AM. Management does not enforce quiet time. Kids running around till after midnight. View from our site was the garbage dumpsters and old broken down RVs. I tried dumping our tanks and my dump hose blew off the sewer connection. Fortunately it was only the gray water. Informed office and within a few minutes someone was sent to pump out the campground holding tank. Overall a bad experience, too loud, to cramped and too busy. This is not the place to enjoy peace and quiet. - ETB

Old and worn out. Tight turn off main road which can be busy at times. Ruts in narrow asphalt entry gate so bad that the gate post leans in toward the road. Impossible to get a large class A past the gate without mirrors hitting the untrimmed bush on the right. Interior roads are paved, but in very rough shape. Many tight curves. Campground seems to be 3 sections. Upper entry hill area, pasture area, and lower woods. Only the pasture area is level. All other sites are unlevel, usually very very unlevel. Woods area is heavily wooded and dark. No satellite reception possible in any of those sites. So much tree debris on the ground that I'm amazed they haven't had a serious fire. One day they sent crew with leaf blowers to blow pine needles all around our toad and coach. They blew dust and pine needles all over both. When I asked them to stop they refused, but said they would use the blower on our vehicles after they were done. Very rude. They should have told me in advance and offered to let us move for a couple hours while they used leaf blowers on dirt all around. They charge an extra for 50amp service. Cable is about 30 channels of very poor quality analog channels only. We did pickup about as many digital HDTV broadcast channels on our antenna which was nice. Sewer hookup goes to a 200 gallon cistern at the full hookup sites. They didn't bother to tell us that and after a week our sewer overflowed when I was dumpin black tank. They sent a worker with a small honey wagon to pump out the cistern. I was told the camper before us must have had the same issue because "toilet paper was all around the sewer hookup." So I was standing in an open sewer. Yuk. Again, if they would have told me about the capacity BEFORE an issue occurred it would have been fine. During heavy rain several of the lower sites flooded (worst one was probably 5 inches deep). One plus is that the lower park is very quiet without road noise. - Bryanmsi

This is a great small park. We have a 36' class A, which we were able to back into site #7 easily. Spacious private site, set back off road. Last year, we were in site #9 which was a little tricky to back into because of the angle. It would be easier to pull straight into #9 but then the fire ring may be on the wrong side of your rig. Unfortunately, there are no pull-through sites here. Sites #7, 8 and 9 are located in a little alcove which would make for a great three-family compound. No hookups at this campground, but we like boondocking so we don't mind. Hookups would make this campground a 10! There is a water spigot across the street from our site. Bath house is brand new, and we were extremely impressed with the showers! Spacious, clean, a nice door separating your personal dressing area from your shower, great water pressure and temp. 75 cents for 3 minutes, 25 cents each additional minute. There is a dump site near the bath house. Even though it's the first week of August, almost 8 am, it's nice and quiet here. There is a nice lake (reservoir) for fishing, swimming, kayaking, etc. Plenty of hiking and challenging mountain biking. We love this campground! - Bobalou

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

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

We came here on a whim. Showed up with no reservation. They welcomed us in with a nice wooded site. This is definitely a smaller campground, mostly seasonals but everyone seemed friendly. Definitely worth a return trip. I would say the only complaint I'd have is that their dump station is on the wrong side of the road make sure you have at least a 15' hose. - Sstratton6175

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

My family and I stayed here for the first time and the last time over the past Memorial Day weekend. The management was not helpful at all. When we had a problem getting our trailer level upon arrival, we were told someone would be by to help, and not one worker showed up. We were also placed so close to a fellow camper that we felt we had no privacy at all; all of the RV's are packed in too close quarters. The roads are made of dirt, and trash is not picked up. We were also kept up at night because of rowdy night time noise; people playing music too loud and others being too loud outside their RV. Not one grounds keeper came over to ask people to quiet down. I have been camping for many years, and this is one campground I will never go back to. - cnms248

Kings is the perfect family camping experience because they are welcoming, helpful, and share years of their knowledge. They are clean, safe, and have a variety of activities for all ages all summer long. - Tracy2013

We came here for Labor Day. It is mostly seasonal, and a small campground. When I saw how small and how many seasonals, about 99%, I thought we were in trouble. But I was wrong. The people were all very nice and helpful. The way the sites are set up you can be awning to awning with your friends. We had 3 trailers together and we were in a circle all together awning to awning. We loved it. They don't bother you about anything. They don't make you put your fire out at 11pm. They have a lot of activities going on. Talent contest, DJ, bingo, kids might be bored but the adults had plenty to do. The campsites and campground was very clean and the seasonal sites were kept up very nice. Beautiful lake. Paddle boat, and canoe rentals. The only thing is they offer WiFi but we couldn't get it, all the codes were taken up. They said the office where they get the codes from closed early because of the hurricane. We did get a lot of rain on Friday and winds on Saturday and Sunday. Overall we liked it so much that we booked it for next year. I only gave it a 6 because it was a small campground and no pool. The store is very limited too. We went to another campground down the road and used their store. Kings campground store didn't have propane cylinders, or holding tank chemicals? What camp store doesn't carry that stuff? We went to the Woodstock fair and other friends found hiking trails near by. - meister

Expensive for what you get, rude owners that just care about finding different ways to charge you for every little thing and sometimes double charge you when they "forget" you already paid. - Bert102

Beautiful place to get away for $800/month. Local roads are "scenic", which means the 25mph speed limit is enforced by narrow, badly maintained roads. AT&T reception is two bars at best. No WiFi, cable costs extra, 10-15 channels with a good aerial, and plenty of hot water for $1 in the clean bath house. Air conditioning is superfluous except for a few nights in August-shady sites with cool breezes. Tight roads servicing the generous seasonal sites, easy assess to the "Field" for big rigs and weekenders. Management is friendly and helpful. - Ernest Station

My family and I spent a week at this campground and had such a wonderful time. Camping has become a summer hobby of ours and we were delighted to find a place that finally met the criteria we were looking for. The grounds were clean, the lake was beautiful, and there was no loud night time noise to keep my two children awake- something that I have run into problems with during stays at other parks. The management was very helpful, and even delivered firewood to our campsite for us. My husband and I enjoyed a live band around a bonfire right by the lake - very relaxing, and my two children really liked the movie night offered as well as tie dye your shirt day. We brought along our dog, and even though there is a no pet walking policy, there was a private road adjacent to the park where we were able to walk him every morning. If you are looking for an enjoyable real camping experience, this is the place to be. - cnms248

Excellent campground. Clean, well kept sites with lots of friendly service. Restrooms excellent too. I felt the weekend rate was high but once you see all the Patriot fans roll in you can understand the premium. - mojomoho

Very large park, gravel roads and large gravel spaces many with concrete patios. Spaces are very open with lots of room. Several pools including an indoor pool. Very nice personnel. They lead you to your space. Number code must be used for incoming or going out. Very high water pressure (80-100), must have a regulator. Nice roads inside park. Nice easy access roads to get to park. Very weak WiFI. Many spaces are open enough for satelite but many are surrounded by trees (their site map is very accurate showing the trees). - A Adams

We had an excellent experience. This is one of the top 5 campgrounds we have ever stayed in, and we have been full timing for 12 years. All of the employees were very helpful and friendly as it was our first time in the area, and we had several questions. - LeeAnn Magel

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

I like this campground alot... They have alot to do for families with little kids. It's a smaller campground, nice game room, I wish they had a full time snack bar, the ladies in the front office are so AWESOME. Gets crazy busy and crazy crowded on special weekends (memorial day, 4th of July, etc...) wifi isn't the best..not sure if that matters to some people - BfrmRI

We stayed here last summer with the grandkids when we had to camp fairly close to home and it worked out great. there was a lot going on for the kids that weekend and for the adults with live bands throughout the weekend. it was a very hot weekend in the 90s and they did lose power but everybody in the park was running their air conditioners and they had the power company out to fix the problem within a couple hours. The campground is very clean, kinda on the rustic side but still very nice, sites are a little small like a lot of CGs are but there was adequate room for our 31' Class C. They served breakfast Sunday morning for a reasonable price; we did not partake because we had the kids. Staff was very friendly and helpful, restrooms were clean. I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it for anybody visiting or passing through the area - Banditoman60

Camping over Memorial Day Weekend and the campground was very busy. Site was back in, but room to get in and out. Campground only has one road that goes in a out which is one lane, so it got busy. Also dump station is at the back of the campground which stayed busy since it was Memorial Day weekend. Will stay again. - bkboren
