I'm at that age when my mind thinks that I am 29, my humor suggests that I am 12, while my body keeps asking me if I'm sure that I'm not dead yet! (I am recently retired & looking forward to doing a lot of X-country RVing with my bride of 40 years)!

The campground is very clean & well maintained, close to Franconia Notch & the Kancamagus Hwy. Plenty of activities for children, nice pool. There was not too much privacy between sites, but our neighbors were friendly & considerate. We camped at Lincoln / Woodstock KOA in a Travel Trailer.
The town of Woodstock is 10-15 minutes away. There are plenty of nice shops t browse through, the Woodstock Inn has a nice craft brewery. There is a nice town part on the Pemigawasset River (Cascade Park, plenty of free parking); where you can rent tubes to float on the river and down the small cascades. It is free & open to the public. A great place for the family to cool off on a hot summer day!

My only complaint(s) about the campground was that the roads were somewhat narrow, my site was not all that level (it's hard to drain septic lines uphill), and it is not especially big rig friendly. That being said, this is a small campground that is very well managed! The staff are friendly, helpful and hardworking. When a camper checks out, the site is raked clean. I did not see any litter, the bathrooms are spotless. There are activities on weekends (movie nights, ice cream socials), etc. There is miniature golf, a ball field, volleyball, fishing & swimming. You have a choice between a 50ft pool, or a pond. This campground was a lumber mill in the 1930's and closed around 1963. The stream had been dammed up to create a pond and the logs were floated in the pond to keep insects out until the logs were ready to be milled. As a result, there is a lot of tannin in the water, and while it is clean & certified by the state of Maine, the water has a tea color to it. The camp store is average, the WIFI is fair. All in all, a very nice campground. I'd say about half the sites appear to be seasonal. It is a quiet, family oriented facility. I will definitely come back here when in the area. We camped at Beaver Dam Campground in a Travel Trailer.
Take time to visit Mt. Agamenticus! You can see all the way to Mt. Washington from the summit (79 miles distant). Then stop at Aggie's Ice Cream for a post-hike treat. She has 104 different home made flavors ranging from the traditional to the " You won't find this anyplace else". Have you ever even heard of Maine Lobster Tracks or Brown Butter Bourbon Truffle?

I had originally intended to stay at Meredith Woods Campground (across the street) Clearwater Campground is owned & operated by the same owner. There is no online registration. You can't access a map of the campground online. I called Meredith Woods & made a telephone registration. When I arrived at Meredith Woods, the registrar at the office said that she didn't have us listed there. This was the same woman who took my registration & deposit. When I questioned why, she said that there were no available sites at Meredith Woods, so she booked us at Clearwater across the street. Why she couldn't inform me at the time of registration, I don't know. Clearwater was my 2nd choice and my wife & I are very happy we were sent there. The office, rec center, laundry were all new. Campground roads are narrow & uneven in parts. Sites are spacious & very private. The campground is 75% seasonal; w/ activities for the family Thursday through Sunday. Nice beach w/ canoe/kayak/boat rentals & fishing dock. Snack bar/store at the beach. Beautiful lake. Camping at Clearwater also allows you to use the rec facilities, etc. @ Meredith Woods. The staff were friendly & helpful. They have a summer special, if you book Sunday thru Thursday, one night is free. We would definitely go back again. The "seasonals" were friendly, but we are camping in a restored '77 Airstream Overlander, so people like to stop & chat. Bring bug spray! Lots of 'skeeters in the evening. (I would have given a 10 rating for the site if not for the 'skeeters). The bathhouses were SPOTLESS! That tells me the ownership takes good care of their facility! We camped at Clearwater Campground in a Travel Trailer.
The town of Meredith on Lake Winnepesauke is 5 minutes away. Laconia & Weir's Beach is 10 minutes away. Castle In The Couds and White Lake State Park are both 40 minutes away & well worth the trip to visit!

This is a large campground in CT. We have been coming here for many years. It is a very family-oriented park with may activities for children and adults. The sites are fairly large, 3 large pools, softball field, disc golf, etc. There is an on-site cap store, creamery/luncheonette & rec center. They have numerous festivals here (i.e. Bluegrass & Cajun Music festivals). It is near Foxwood & Mohegan Sun Casinos, and other area attractions. We had a lot of fun here & plan to return for the Cajun Music & Food Festival here on June 6 -9. We camped at Strawberry Park in a Travel Trailer.
Foxwoods, Mohegan Sun casinos are nearby. The local area also has fishing lakes, golf courses, Mystic Aquarium, Mystic Seaport are nearby.
