Interesting campground and I find it hard to rate. The previous reviewer covered all of the varying site differences and road conditions so I won't cover them. There are charges for everything: pets cost $3.00 per night, showers cost money, the water slide costs money, they have 2 large clubhouses which are always locked unless you have paid for an activity in them. To use the free wi-fi, you must sit outside the store on picnic tables, at least it is under a roof but can get cold and windy when it rains. For $45 a night, I would think that one could use the clubhouse for wi-fi.

Their website directions send you to Google which gives the wrong directions through a RI park and into the campground the back way. You cannot get to the park using these directions. I mentioned this to the office and the woman didn't seem concerned. Luckily I had called the office in advance and came in the right way.

Our hook-ups were straightforward but leveling was a challenge. There is a well-used picnic table and a fire pit at each campsite. The sites were spacious and grassy. We camped at Wawaloam Campground in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Wawaloam Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

There's lots to do, but you need to drive about 20 minutes to get to anything. Jamestown was about 30-35 minutes away. Beautiful area.

Our first stay here, after a recommendation from friends. Wasn't disappointed! Large sites, reasonably priced, clean restrooms & showers. Even had some friendly seasonal campers give me a hand when they saw I had trouble backing in to our site. Camped near the playground and the kids loved it. Very safe-feeling, family-oriented campground. Will go again, and definitely recommend to others. We camped at Wawaloam Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Very frustrating arrangement of sites. Some have sewer, others don't. You have to choose between 30 amp with cable or 50 amp without cable. Satellite unlikely at most sites. We could not get it. Most sites are dirt but some have pads, but they are small and except for one 30 amp site (292), only offered on 50 amp sites! We could not get both sets of jacks on the pad in our 43' motor home. There is WiFi, which works well, but it is not available at the sites, only at the general store and pavilion. Huge park, mostly seasonal/2nd homes that are very well kept. Main roads are paved but some of the side roads leading to sites are not and parking your RV is a little challenging. The check in area is really tight. You basically stop in the road, hop out, go to a small security booth to pay and get instructions, and hope no one else comes in behind you. Restrooms are very nice. 25 cents per five minutes for showers, which are huge. Great amenities for the kids and the grounds are kept up nicely. Lots of grassy areas. Staff was very friendly. Thursday dinner and Sunday breakfast offered at the pavilion. Check website for directions. GPS and Google did not offer the best route. We camped at Wawaloam Campground in a Motorhome.

Beautiful grounds, nice pool and big sites. We have two young children who both enjoyed themselves at the playground and pool. My youngest would not try the waterslides, but my son LOVED IT! Our neighbors were helpful backing us into the site. We met lots of nice campers and my kids made friends at the playground. We camped at Wawaloam Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

A seasonal camper told us we should try the chicken parmesan at their on site restaurant- delicious!

We recently stayed at Wawaloam, we had never been there before so we didn't know what to expect, just what we had researched on the internet. The site was nice, it was open and spacious. All the sites are back-in only, this can be a difficult because of the trees and rocks, but we made it in without any problems. Our neighbors were friendly. We have (2) children so we were excited about the water slide. The pool was nice and clean, large enough to accommodate a decent amount of people. The water slides were only open for 4 hours on Saturday the weekend we were there but we didn't mind. Our kids had a blast. We didn't really see any staff around and the staff we did interact with were pleasant. The one issue I did have was that the seasonals seem to have run of the park. I understand they pay a decent amount to be there but some were not as welcoming as others. It was like the high school cafeteria at the pool and you're the new kid. One gentleman, and I use that term loosely, even yelled at my son, which I felt was inappropriate. There were a lot of adult activities planned but not many for children. I am by no means a prude but the adult activities at one point concerned me. 2 golf carts full of what appeared to be well intoxicated adults racing around the campground loudly singing while little children attempted to ride bikes was a bit much. Overall we had a good time. We left and went to the beach on Sunday which is about 30 minutes away. The area in which the campground is located is very rural and the roads are slightly narrow. We camped at Wawaloam Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Overall a very nice campground. We asked for a secluded site and we were put in the seasonal section. Sure enough, it was very quiet. The site was very spacious and huge fire pits. Water and sewer were easily accessible on the site. The power supply was a little of an issue. Although we were given a 30 amp site, we had our surge protector trip several times with just the a/c and the radio on. The site also had cable, but when we tried to hook up our cable it did not work. Although we do not go camping to use the Internet, a little pet peeve of ours is that this is the 21st century and Wi-Fi should be standard. (We were informed of "hot spots" but could never find them). The campground has 2 rec halls, a very well appointed store, game room, a big swimming pool, a water slides ($), fishing pond. We would camp here again in the future! We camped at Wawaloam Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This campground is very wooded with 2/3 of the sites being seasonals. The sites are very roomy and our site #24 was downright huge. It had a picnic table and fire ring. It was completely shady with large trees that did not interfere with our roof or our 4 slides. Our backyard view was the pond. It was close to the store, laundry, Wi-Fi hotspot, and bathhouse. The only bad part was we only had 30 amp and the voltage was running low the entire 3 weeks we were there so we were afraid to use our AC. Fortunately the weather was cool enough at night that we did not need it. We stayed here 3 years ago and the water slide and mini golf were in dire need of repairs. Those repairs have been done along with repaving of the roads. All in all I think it is a nice campground and would stay here again. We camped at Wawaloam Campground in a Motorhome.

The campground looked nice and the sites were relatively clean with mostly seasonal rentals. However, they have an odd arrangement for hookups on the transient sites. For example, we could not get a 50A site with sewer and/or cable and we booked months ago. Since it was in the 90's outside and we were only staying 4 days, we elected to go with a 50A power site. Many of the sites are not very level and in our case it required my front tires to be in the air in order to level the rig. After I hooked up shore power I noted the no load voltage was around 113 VAC and as soon as we started the A/C it dropped to 107 VAC. Fortunately, I installed an EMS system to open the incoming power on low voltage because during the day it dropped as low as 91 VAC. This will damage electric motors over time and many rigs do not have an EMS and running their A/C, most likely unaware of the problem. We ended up running our generator for several hours during the day despite paying extra for a 50A site. The bathrooms/showers were OK, but getting even warm water was a stretch, plus it cost a few bucks in quarters to use the shower. Too many restrictive rules (like no mats larger than 2'x3' on the grass) and a few on the staff were pretty rude. Overall, a not very enjoyable campground and we will not be back. We camped at Wawaloam Campground in a Motorhome.

I have to disagree with some of the previous ratings as we had a wonderful time at this camp. The sites are HUGE and the owners could easily split them in half and be "normal" sized. It's true that activities and the water slides are extra $$, but we've been to other campgrounds (KOA's) where it's even more expensive. There are rules (just like most camps) but we did not have anyone stop us when we (knowingly) broke them. We camped with a large group and had a great time and will consider this camp again. I will agree with that there is an ugly turn (GPS instructions) where many cars/trailers have bottomed out! If it were not for this review site, I would have landed in the same intersection. Town Hall Road - easy shortcut to avoid nasty intersection! We camped at Wawaloam Campground in a Travel Trailer.

What a disappointment. This campground is nice and clean, but the adult staff was extremely rude. They will charge you for everything and anything they can (dogs, early arrival, etc.) and there are many rules that are ridiculous. We arrived from NY 45 minutes early and were charged and extra $5 to register (only to use 1 1/2 hrs to try to fit into our site). When we got to our "premium" site, our travel trailer would not fit. While we were trying to get it to fit, employees drove by in their golf cart and did not offer help. When we called the office and told them we could not fit, we were told there were no other sites left. Shortly after calling, the same two employees came back and sat in their cart, never exiting and never helping. One of them stated to the other that we didn't need help, since we had others there. Isn't that their job? Thankfully we switched with friends and squeezed into the next site, backing into some shrubbery. We left a message with the owner's sister and even tried to find her at a couple locations, but to no avail. We left a message for her to come to our site but she never came or contacted us. A neighboring camper was overheard arguing with staff who were giving them a hard time about having an extra vehicle on their site. They said that they won't be back, to which the staff member responded, "That's right. You won't." You're apparently only allowed one vehicle, since we too were "scolded" for a neighboring friend's truck too close to ours. Note that many seasonals have 2 vehicles and a golf cart, not to mention all the little yard trinkets, which make it look a bit trashy. Further, if you have a site with "grass", you won't be able to put your carpet out unless it's a small one. No carpets on the grass. In sum, I would not recommend this campground. It's very pricey, and staff are rude and too many ridiculous rules. We camped at Wawaloam Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This place is trying harder and harder NOT to be family friendly! No tents at all allowed. Everything costs extra. So basically, fun=dollars. Staff is rude and not helpful. Kids practically had to be leashed! Extra money for pets. Not a resort, planned activities are dinners that you had to pay for and dances once in a blue moon. I will not camp here again.

Our second trip this month to this campground. The prices are very reasonable and everything you want is very close. The activities, pool, waterslide, mini golf all very affordable. This is the best secure facility I have ever been to. Gates close: just get a gate card to re-enter. A great place! We camped at Wawaloam Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is catering to their seasonal for sure. The campground area has very few 50 amp and sewer sites. On the plus side, the sites are large. The CG being an older one, has serious problems with the electric voltages on both the 30 and 50 amp sites. This can blow out your AC without you being aware of why it happened. They fussed at us for unhooking our car near the entrance, yet no one had instructed us otherwise. Also they recycle but don't tell you this, or where their laundry is or what the trash small trash cans around the park are for. The store and the laundry and one of the only two dumpsters are all located outside the park. The staff was just so-so, a take it or leave it, attitude. There is an extra charge for pets as well as AC. They don't seem to have much in the way of activities either. Roads are paved and easy to traverse. We camped at Wawaloam Campground in a Motorhome.
