Ok, first the good. This is an older, well kept mobile home park that has several spots set aside for RV's. Owners and staff are exceptionally friendly, helpful people. We had a 50 amp full hook up for 5 nights. No cable, but point your digital antenna toward Chicago and we were able to pick up a whopping 46 stations! Sites are heavily shaded and wide. There aren't any clubhouses, pools or the like, so if you need a nice spot to locate to visit and tour Chicago, this is the place. The park is only 3 miles from the South Shore commuter train Portage/Ogden Dunes station, and the Senior fare to downtown Chicago is $3.50. Now the bad. The park is located right on Route 20, a little noisy, and on the rear boundary of the park are train tracks that have Many freight trains coming and going 24/7. Noise level is pretty high, but if you can deal with this, its a great place for Chicago access.
This is an old park that the current owners have had for 11 years or so. Several improvements have been made, but theres a long way to go. When you check in the "office" you feel like you're actually standing at the entry of the managers house, no office to speak of. Managers are very cordial. Sites are gravel and fairly large, but they allow tents on the RV sites, so we got to look at a nice cabin tent from our rear picture window on the site behind us. Restrooms are fairly new, but the showers are in a separate building, old and in need of replacement. Lots of equipment and "stuff" lying around. This is right on route 12, so a little noisy. Excellent location while visiting the 1000 islands, 2 miles from the bridge to Canada, and next door to a great State Park. (That's ALWAYS full) no cable TV but we were able to pick up several stations with the digital antenna. Last but not least, there is a small store directly in front of the RV park that has excellent gourmet ice cream cones! There was a continuous line every evening waiting! We would stay here again but would hope the owners would clean the place up a bit and get rid of all the old stuff lying around.
First of all, this seems to be a destination type resort, not geared for over night stops. We were only here for one night. There are MANY park models and seasonals here. (All nice folks by the way) The sites are all grass with a little gravel thrown around and no cable. We've traveled over 8000 miles this year, stayed in many campgrounds, and this park has earned two distinctions. 1. This is the worst park we have stayed at, and ... 2. It's the most expensive park we've stayed at. I could add a number 3 saying the lot was all but inaccessible due to very rigid limbed trees hanging over the access, and also hopelessly out of level, then this park will have earned the Trifecta of worst campgrounds in America. I stopped on the way out to voice my concerns and was told by the lady manager to "take a number, and if I was displeased, to fill out the survey form and mail it in." We have stayed in much nicer places for half the cost. This is not even close to being worth the money. Working staff... Great folks. Management.. Arrogant and rude. We will never stay here again.
This is a nice quiet well run park. It's about 6 miles south of Rock of Ages granite factory. Nice tour. Be sure to take exit 6 off Route 89, and not Exit 5. Its a little bit longer to double back, but the road from Exit 5 is a 2 lane, narrow road with very steep grades over 10%. The park is on a nice quiet lake well away from traffic and noise. We had a 30 amp full hookup with water and sewer, but no cable, and we were unable to pick up any stations using the digital antenna. New owners are wonderful people working very hard to create a great camping experience for you. The campground is on one side of the lake, and forested on the other. I can't begin to imagine how beautiful this view would be when the leaves change in the fall! This park is arranged so that it would be a great place to have a large group gathering, but best to call and plan ahead for this. Overall, a very nice park. We would surely return again!
This is a very large, well run heavily wooded park with many amenities. There are limited 50 amp sites so reserve if you need one. Everything you need is here. Staff is great, park is very secure, and the entrance to Acadia is only a couple miles down the road. If you like to walk, all roads are nicely paved and it's about a 1 mile walk around the perimeter inside the park. Water view sites available, but bring your binoculars, it's far. Like to swim? Beautiful large pool heated to about 80. Laundry has 8 washers and 8 dryers, and is $1 wash and $1 dry, very reasonable. Need propane? It's here and reasonable. No cable, but we picked up many stations with the digital antenna. Only one negative comment. All sites have been graded and graveled, but not leveled, so you need to level your rig. No big deal. All in all, a great place to stay. We would surely return here!
Nice woodsy park. Fairly quiet. Most sites are back-in with a little gravel and a lot of grass. Park is on the waterfront, so you can take nice walks on the rocky beach. Roads are all dirt/gravel. No sewer at any of the sites but there is a sewage dump as you exit the park. No cable TV at any of the sites and we weren't able to pick up even one station with the digital TV antenna. Store is pretty well equipped for RV supplies. Nice laundromat on site. Staff is pleasant and helpful. They have several "classifications" of sites. We were far up inside the park for $55 per night. Waterfront sites were $84/night. Overall nice park, but far too expensive for what it is.
Being the closest park to Boston, it's just an OK park, nothing fancy at all. We were only able to get a 30 amp spot for 2 of our 3 days there. Had to move on the third night. Bear in mind that this is an old military facility that has been abandoned and now turned into a public boat launch, and a 50+ vehicle day use parking area. An RV parking facility with RV spots lined around the perimeter of the parking area, as well as having turned an additional empty field into RV parking. Your water supply is an above ground 1 1/4" ABS plastic line strapped to the 8 inch timbers around the perimeter or tied to a cyclone fence. The "store" has basically nothing of any use unless you need a soda or charcoal briquets. Check in Staff was there and emotionless. There are no sewer connections at any of the sites, nor is there any sewage dump on site. They send you offsite about a mile away to the Salem Sewage Treatment Facility to dump. We went there only to find that you have to drive up to the fence, pick up the phone, and call someone to let you in. The entry is a single lane entry angled at a 45 degree angle opposite the way you come from the campground. So if you have a large unit, you have to drive into Salem, turn around, then enter the facility. When you leave, you have to do the opposite, drive through Salem, turn around, then back to the park. Huge hassle. Overall, if we had a choice, we would stay elsewhere.
This is an old campground that's certainly seen better days. if you want quiet, it certainly is that. We were assigned site 14, so when you leave the office, you must pull your RV up a VERY steep hill (at least a 15% grade) to get to your site. Our site was a back in, and was pretty out of level and also dropped a great deal in the rear, so the front of the RV was nearly on the ground.. No cable connection, and satellite would be impossible with all the trees, so we tried the digital antenna. Picked up a total of 5 stations, no major stations, and of course, 3 shopping stations, clear as a bell! There are many permanent RVs and mobile homes set up, most of which are nicely groomed. It appeared that we were the only overnighters around, which surprised us at this time of year. The location is about 10 miles south of Plymouth, where there is a great Pilgrim Museum and Plymouth Rock, and a nice shopping and restaurant area. Just an OK park for a few nights.
