The new owners have been here for a year and are working hard on making the campground better. They are very friendly folks and hope to offer a much nicer stay for everyone in the future. We were happy to get 50 amps and a clear sky for our DirecTV satellite dish, and the rates are reasonable for this area. The only downside for us is the lack of sewer. However, there's a dump station and pump-outs are available. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Gross. That is all I have to say. The staff was unfriendly and mean. They do not like people. I was embarrassed in front of my husband and kids that I had chosen this campground. I wanted to leave and stay in a hotel very badly, but we stuck it out. I would have left and went home but we had a family reunion in the near area on Sunday and we had traveled about two hours to get to this blank hole. The campground is the pits and the area is beyond boring. Don't waste your money by staying in this campground. You'd be better of camping in your back yard. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
This the third year in a row that I've camped here while in transit to Cape Cod. I used to live near here and always stop to visit with friends. It could be an amazing campground since it has both wooded and open sites. It's close to the original Yankee Candle Factory and the hip town of Northampton. Also nearby are five different colleges: University of Massachusetts, Mt. Holyoke, Hampshire, Smith and Amherst College. It's also a short trip up the Mohawk Trail to the quaint village of Shelburne Falls. The downside of this campground is that they continue to allow it to fall in disrepair. The office/campstore is dingy and dirty. The bathrooms are horrible and worst of all the dumpstation continually backed up while we tried to dump the rig. The staff wasn't helpful at all and weren't too concerned with these issues. You'll also need to bring insect repellent, this area is prime bug habitat. The new owners have done little to improve this diamond in the rough. We camped here in a Motorhome.
