First of all, this is a brand new campground which is NOT completed. You should really call first to see if what they offer meets your needs. The sites offer full hookups 30/50, cable and wifi. Cable was not completed in our section, but we did see the cable trucks and personnel working there. Looks like they will be offering seasonal sites as some have brick patios. Some sites are a little too tight for our likings. We had a nice size site. We did not stay there for their amenities. We love the Rhode Island coastline and all the numerous beaches and seafood restaurants which are only 15 minutes away. Amenities offered are splash pad for kids, huge pool, adult whirlpool, tennis court, basketball court, bocce ball, horseshoes, arts & crafts and a HUGE clubhouse which is not yet completed. I'm sure there is more I did not see. The store seems a little scarce. As I said, you should call first so you won't be disappointed. Being new, they seem to still be working out all the kinks. The staff was great, friendly and helpful. This place has a future!

We stayed at this campground for 4 nights the week before Memorial Day. The weather was cool, clear and sunny, making for nice rides any time of day through the park loop. Our site accommodated our 31' motorhome and Jeep without a problem. The campground was easy to find, the entrance road was paved, park rangers were friendly and helpful. The site was pretty level and surrounded by trees offering privacy. It was very quiet at night. There are no hookups at this campground so we did use our generator during appropriate hours. There is a dump station. The restrooms were clean. We used our Senior Pass so not sure if the price I quoted is correct. With close proximity to Bar Harbor there is enough to do and we toured the island with the toad. Looking forward to returning again.

This campground did not meet our expectations. We pulled into the very narrow entrance road a 2 p.m. and walked to the office door only to find a note stating to go to the house. Where's the house? A person walking her dog, not staying at the campground, explained the house is further down the road in the middle of the campground. Fine. We walked to the house and observed the small river front sites. We knocked on the door several times and no answer. This was a good thing because we did not like anything that we saw. Old trailers, a pile of old tires, old propane tanks, close sites. We walked back to our RV and hi-tailed it out of there. This campground might be OK for tent camping, tubing on the river, but it was not the kind of place we prefer. There is a very nice state park not far away.

I called two other campgrounds first, and they were full for the weekend. When I called Country Acres, I was told they just had a cancellation, and we got the last site available and probably the best site in the campground! We loved it here! The office is very inviting from the outside and friendly on the inside. Some sites appeared to be a little closer than we prefer, but certainly doable. Our site was a little further away and offered more privacy. We were on an end site so there was no one on our left side. We backed up to a corn field and enjoyed the warm night, fire, full moon, quiet, and overall peaceful environment. The grounds are maintained and landscaped nicely and the restrooms are modern and super clean. All the other campers were friendly. This will be our first choice when in the Amish Country again. We stayed two nights.

OK campground. The best thing is the shuttle that goes to Boothbay Harbor just 3-1/2 miles away. It's a direct run and doesn't stop anywhere else, which is nice! Takes no more than 10 minutes. Office staff was nice and pleasant. We had a back in site in the wooded area with full hookup. It was quiet at night which is VERY important to us. I was just expecting a little nicer campground by all the write ups. There wasn't anything wrong with the place, just a regular campground. Yes, I would return.

It is a very nice, average size, neat campground. It appears to have a lot of seasonals, but most looked taken care of. No one was there during the week. We stayed around the back and to the right. Our site was large, full hook up, quiet and very scenic. We faced a huge open field bordered by pines, and to our right was a barn and several horses grazing behind the fences. There were other animals and just pleasant to walk around and see everything. Appeared to have a nice play area for the kids. The woman owner was very pleasant and helpful. Not sure about cable. Our internet worked perfect on our ipads. Would definitely stay here again.

Was a stop over for us on the way north. Nice park for families with the lake, beach, boat rentals and nice store. Sites are spacious offering privacy. We were able to back into our site with our 32 ft motorhome, but most sites are not level. Park is really not big rig friendly, most campers were in tents. Again, nice park, but we won't be returning because the price for a state park with no hookups is way too high.

This is a lovely, little, well kept campground. Everything was so neat and clean. Our site was adequate, close to our neighbors, as all the sites are. The hookups were great. Wifi worked good. Bathroom and showers were very clean. Laundry was good, 4 washers, 4 dryers. The area was landscaped nicely. Yup, there are trains. Yup, they are loud but really for one or two minutes only a few times a night. The road noise was much more disturbing. The road is a continuous busy one with fast noisy cars, trucks and motorcycles. Since we toured all day, we were not subjected to road noise all the time and it did quiet down a bit around 10pm. The staff was very friendly and helpful but not sure we would return here, only because of the noise.

Such a beautiful area and decent, natural campground. By natural, there are no hookups, just trees, birds, deer, owls and other wildlife to observe. Our site in the E loop was very level. As mentioned previously, not all sites are level, but all appear to be huge and offer privacy if that is important to you. There is a big choice of trails along with camp store, wayside and visitors center. Staff was friendly and helpful. The park was full and quiet for opening weekend except for the two young people with the car doors opened playing the radio too loud. Everyone else was respectful. We enjoyed all this park had to offer.

We were fortunate enough to enjoy this park off season with no bugs, insects or mosquitoes. Our Oceanside site was gorgeous! What a view! Day 3 we asked to be moved to the bayside and they accommodated us without a problem. The wind! Continous wind for 48 hours! You could feel the motorhome moving. Bayside site 45 gave us full protection and you'd never know there were high winds outside. We were able to do some biking and walk the different trails. All the sites are very spacious and afford privacy. We did see lots of ponies in and around the campground. The rangers were all happy and friendly. The visitor center is nice and the movie informative about the island and the ponies. The rest rooms were kept extremely clean even though I never saw anyone cleaning them! Hope to return someday.

Mixed feelings about this park. Our site was level, hookups were fine but very close to our neighbors. Since most people are out sightseeing, this was not a problem; it was quiet all the time. The park was clean and staff very friendly. I was disappointed in the fact that we arrived on a Saturday afternoon and was told we missed the last shuttle service to downtown- at 2p.m.? I was disappointed that no one told us Sunday and Monday were blackout dates at the Grand Ole' Opry. I blame that mostly on myself for not doing more research on line. We did the backstage tour. The real disappointment was Monday morning when we checked out and the office and store was closed. Thought they were running a business? I wanted milk and bread. Other people were also looking to get into the store and shaking their heads in disbelief that the sign on the door read Closed. I got the impression they are under-staffed or just very independent. We saw enough of Nashville in the two days there, and enjoyed all we did, but probably will not return, and if we do, we will return to Two Rivers because of location and quietness.

What a great campground. Checked in before noon and spent the day relaxing in the pool and hot tub after traveling all night. This was a one night stop on the way south. Everything was super clean and neat. Bathrooms and showers were immaculate. Staff was extremely friendly, welcoming, and helpful. Our site was certainly big enough with a gazebo, level, and good hook ups. It was quiet at night for a good night's sleep and early departure. Lots of big rigs there, probably also on their way south. We will definitely return.

As mentioned in previous reviews, location is top notch here. Beautiful farm views for miles. The campground is extremely clean and extremely well maintained. Owners take lots of pride in their property. Sites are deep, level, and a little close. Hookups were good. Wifi worked fine, can't comment on cable, just don't know. However, we will never stay here again. The office staff was just too rude and impatient when asked a couple of very basic simple questions. There just were no smiles, no friendliness, no welcoming feeling. We could not justify paying $48 for a second night and ended up going to another campground a few miles away.

We loved this park! If you are a nature lover, you will too. We stayed in the new portion and had a huge, private, full hookup site with picnic table, grill and fire pit. I don't usually use the showers but I did here without hesitation, they were so clean. I also did one load of laundry. We had turkeys and deer right at our site. We biked many miles and saw wild boar, lots of deer, alligators, snakes and numerous birds. We heard owls at night tho' we never saw one. We did the air boat tour. Staff was friendly and stopped at our site just to warn us of poisonous snakes. We stayed three nights, never missed Wi-Fi or cable!

We used this campground for an overnight stay only, and fortunately, was given the best site in the campground. We had a very nice view of the pond, cement pad with picnic table and foliage offering some good privacy. Other sites seemed fairly close to each other. It was quiet at night. The gentlemen was nice, informative and escorted us to our site. The campground is mostly "rough around the edges". Most seem to be permanent residences, lawn ornaments all around and unkept. No one was friendly, no one was rude. The dumpster was loaded with beer bottles. This campground served our purpose but glad we did not stay anymore than one night. Hookups were fine. We will not return.

Spent two nights at this nice campground. Good roads entering and throughout the park. Friendly staff worker at check-in. Good size site and fairly level with good water and electric hook ups. Beach was a long walk in the Florida heat so we used our bicycles. Lovely beach for swimming and we saw dolphins. Public area with store, bait, souvenirs, and snack shack were all very quaint. Our stay here was near perfect BUT I wish the park rangers would have driven around and checked on camp sites.. The one next to us looked like a little village with 2 tents, 1 large screen room, clothes lines strung on the entire perimeter from trees and about 12 people staying there. Fortunately our air conditioner drowned out any nightly noise. We would return to this nicely maintained campground.

After traveling two days from the New England area, paying extra for a preferred site, and looking forward to a Disney vacation, I was miserable for the first two hours at Fort Wilderness because of the site assigned to us. It was in the 300 loop and was plain horrible. No matter where you sat at this location, you would be facing the road viewing trash bins, looking at hookups from other camping vehicles or cars parked horizontally in front of other big rigs. There was no privacy at all; it felt like we were in a fishbowl with hardly any foliage separating sites. What a disappointment! We went back to check-in and explained how disappointed we were, and, honestly, the gentleman could not have been any nicer. He gave us a list of available sites for seven nights and told us to go pick one out. We did just that and found a suitable site in the 200 loop backing up to a stream, lots of Florida foliage, lots of space, and offering lots of privacy. The 200 loop was quiet, and I don't recall seeing any dogs. This was what we had in mind for a Disney camping experience. Everything was beautiful, clean, well maintained and it was walkable to the marina to catch the boat to the Magic Kingdom. We had our bikes and did a bit of biking around the campground, especially to the pool area. You do need some kind of transportation if you want to see and do things in the campground. We saw many golf carts but they were not out of control or taking over the roads. Of course, in September, things may be a little less crowded! We would definitely return to Ft. Wilderness. They have thought of everything for a good time.

We spent 7 nights at this park the second week of June and it was very enjoyable. We did not have full hook up - just water and electric. There are three dump stations. Full hook ups have beautiful salt pond views and are usually reserved a year in advance. Our site was a pull through on asphalt, level, large enough to offer privacy, grassy with fire ring, and picnic table. We saw lots of wildlife including deer and turkey. The park's asset is its close proximity to numerous beaches, restaurants, ferries, fishing party boats and lighthouses. Those are ,all within 2 miles. Also very easy to bike to. We took the ferry to Block Island. We did not use the showers but found them to be in need of updating. The restrooms were OK. This is a family park and would probably get very crowded in summer months. Reservations are suggested. We would return.

We do not travel with children or pets: therefore, I rated this campground a 10 because it had what we require. We enjoy a clean, quiet, scenic campground and this place delivered. The mountain views are beautiful. The park offers lots of green grass, level spacious sites with trees, and two small fish ponds. Children would be bored here. The days and nights were quiet. We did not use the rest rooms or laundry facilities and cannot comment. There was no Wi-Fi or cable TV but we can live without that for a few days. The owners are friendly and helpful. We will return when in the area.
