The Breachway is just a large parking lot with an ocean view. The sites are so small that if you don't know the campers next to you you will by the end of your stay. The issue was that the people at my TT door were in a motorhome and they pulled in. So my door and mat were right at their door and mat. So using the awning was out. When I asked the guy at the gate about the rules about backing in or pulling in all he said was you'll have to live with it. So we did. Lucky they left at 2 days into our stay. The beach is 2 minutes walk and the bay is great for kayaking. Though due to the fact that it is a public boat area you need to lock everything up. Truck, kayak, and gear. As I said it was nice with a group and I did book it for July 2010. They did put in new eco toilets which they lock up at night. Guess they aren't for the campers. Wish they had showers.
We camped with water/electric/sewer and a slab. The slabs are nice and level. This is a very nice camp ground. It is very clean and has a nice pool. The one thing that gets me is that they have this nice new water slide but charge you extra. $5 for 5 times or $20 for the day. Seems like more and more campgrounds are nickle and dime you. But beside this it was a nice stay. We'll be booking again next year.
I've been going to Rocky Neck for over 20 years. This year we stayed at Rocky Neck June 26-29. We were in the Crane area with a group of 8 other camp sites. We normally go at the start of the camping year. Rocky Neck is one of the nicer state parks in Connecticut. But thanks to Gov. Rell the price doubled from $15 a night to $30. We booked our site for June 2010 in Oct.'09 before the prices doubled. This could be our last year going to Rocky Neck. $30 a night for a site with no water, electric or sewer is way too much. $15 a night we would do.
We have been going to Normandy Farms at least 2 or 3 times a year. From as early as May 1st till late October. No matter when we go the camp ground is always clean and neat. The staff is always nice. The only issue we have with Normandy Farms is for the price some sites are a little small. We always book the sites near the front softball field. They are a little larger. Normandy Farms is in a nice location, just 5 miles from Gillette Stadium and Patriots Place.
First let me tell you it's a DRY CAMPGROUND. Only self contained units, no popups. Almost like camping in a parking lot. We camped in our 30 foot travel trailer we a group of about 7 or 8 other campers. Sites are very small, not made for todays' large rigs. Many in the group had issues backing in the sites. The ocean is right there and the breachway was sweet. Great for kayaking and we even went claming. This was the 1st year the park went through Reserve America which was easy, but you have to reserve 12 months ahead of time. We already booked for next year (July 09). The rest rooms are just toilets and was in need a a good cleaning. NO alcohol at all. They booted a group from one site. Seems a little to stricked, but it's the rules. The area was policed by the RI DEP. All in all. It was a nice 4 days. Wish they would make the sites larger. That would reduce the number of sites, but it is needed.
We camped in site 78: a Water/Electric/Sewer site. The sites here are some of the largest I've camped at. Lots of room for the kids and a dog. There is a nice sized playground and a nice pool. The new water slides were open. After returning home, I checked their website to see if there was any mention of the cost of the water slide. Nope, not a word. $20.00 each kid a day or $5.00 for 5 rides. Seemed crazy to me. They should have had this on their website: saying there was a charge. But I took my daughter on it for the 5 rides. Should come up with another way, charge $20 a day per site or something. The camp store is good sized and well stocked: ice cream as well as video games. We'll return again next year even if we don't go on the new slide.
WE CAMPED WITH A FEW OTHER CAMPERS. ALWAYS LIKE TO STAY HERE FOR A FEW DAY EACH YEAR. NICE BEACH AT THE SMALL LAKE. SITES ARE LITTLE SMALL, SO IF YOU CAN GET IN EARLY DO SO. EASIER WHEN ALL SITES AREN'T FULL. STAFF WAS NICE. GOOD ACTIVITIES FOR KIDS. WE WERE IN OUR 30 TT. WISH THEY WOULD UPGRADE TO FULL HOOKUPS.
WE GO TO NORMANDY FARMS ATLEAST 2 TIMES A YEAR. THE STORE/OFFICE IS LARGE AND WELL STOCKED. THE STAFF IS ALWAYS FRIENDLY AND THEY ARE ALWAYS DOING SOMETHING ON THE GROUNDS. THE SITES ARE ALITTLE SMALL FOR THE PRICE BUT IF YOU'VE BEEN THERE YOU KNOW HARD TO GET.I WOULD LOVE TO SEE LARGER SITES OR CHARGE BY THE SITE.THEY HAVE 3 OUTDORR AND 1 INDOOR POOL THAT ARE ALWAYS WELL KEPT. THE LODGE IS LARGE AND VERY CLEAN. THEY HAVE A NICE OUTDOOR SNACK/FOOD BAR.SEEMS THEY KEEP ADDING TO THE RESORT EVERY YEAR.
We stayed there 8/17/07 for 2 nights. We were in site 37, right across from the pump out station, right across from the tent field, right next to the mini golf course (lights didn't go out till 10 pm), right next to the basketball court (kids played till 10pm under the lights). Our site stunk. It was one of the smallest sites I had all season. (12 trips from ME, MA, RI, CT, and NH). The whole park was booked so I couldn't get a different site. I was surprised there was no cable for the price. We had visitors come for the day, and it was $25 for 2 adults and a 6 yr old. We thought that was a little much. The park itself was nice for kids, nice playground, nice beach on the lake. Pool was OK. The layout was a little hilly. Lots of seasonal people which seems to be the new thing for big parks. All in all I rated it a 7 out of 10 (6.5 if i could). We are going back in Oct. in a better site so I think it'll be better. For the price it wasn't what I was hoping for.
