This place was just awful. They said, "We’ll put you in the field so you'll be close to your friends". I was expecting a big flat open field, what we got was a small abandoned gravel pit that was leveled out (somewhat), trees everywhere and no apparent order to which way the rig was supposed to be orientated or who's site was who's. Yup, it was a pull through; although it was so short I had to park the truck elsewhere. We were so close to our friends that my awning over hanged his by 3'. The TV cable service worked and we got over 80 channels, except half of them didn't have sound and the others were fuzzy and distorted. We were well entertained by the neighbor's Ghetto Blaster (not my kind of music, but he loved it). Overall I’d say the place was seedy and rundown and could use a total overhaul. The dump station required a tour around the campground and was in as good of condition as the rest of the place. As entertaining as this place was it ranks high on our list of places we won’t be returning too. The best feature was its friendly staff and the proximity to Old Sturbridge Village, which is why we chose it.
We asked to be parked in open field sites due to our length, and I'm glad I did as we could hear the acorns dropping on the camper in the wooded sites. The staff was friendly and stopped by to chat with us several times. We were here to attend the Lighthouse fishable (National Lighthouse Day), and they laid out a good route to visit three local sites which took all day. I loved the folk-art signs. (Especially the one on the way out, “Antenna down – stairs up”) and the "Marty" the moose mobile. We'll be back next year.
It was pouring rain when we got there, but was escorted to our site, and the staff member stood by to make sure we got settled in and everything worked. Our pull-through site was well laid out and convenient to the entrance and the facilities. The play ground needs a little updating, but we had fun.
This was our second time staying at Beaver Hollow, same dates as last year and same spot. The first year we were a little taken back by the overall seediness of the place, but the new owner told us he was making improvements as he could afford it. This year we see a lot of things have changed there, and the owner was true to his word. We liked our spot in the tall pine trees, the ease of getting in & out, the proximity to the facilities ,and the staff couldn't do enough to help us. The Beaver Mobile was a riot, loaded with kids hooting and hollering as the music played on, while Beaver Bob laid on the Ahooga horn. They went by loaded, several times each day. I thought I was going to split a gut when Beaver Bob did the beaver dance at the Karaoke fest on Saturday night. Yeah, the place still needs some improvements, but downright fun this place ranks high on my list. This was their last weekend of the season, and they had a special rate of $25 a real good buy.
