Nature's Campsites, Voluntown, Connecticut

Date of Stay: June, 2009 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

This was our worst campground experience ever. Problems from the very start, making reservations: had to leave messages, confusion caused by misspelled names and, upon arrival, double-booked sites. Visited website and eMailed questions, but eMail returned. Beautiful property appears to have been prosperous in the recent past. Beginning to suffer from neglect now and is not maintained. Two train cars were left to deteriorate and fall apart so that they are now a safety hazard. Fireplaces were not cleaned, sites unkempt and not clearly marked, picnic tables in disrepair. Bathrooms fairly clean, but plumbing not good - toilets clogged on Sunday morning. When reported to management, received only the reply, "Oh, that happens every day" and no effort to fix. First night, very loud campers partied until the wee hours, with loud music, laughing and drinking until 2:00 AM. Complained to management, (first time ever for us). Next night, same campers hired a DJ and loud music permeated the entire park until 11:00 PM, at which time the boiterous campers yelled again until 1:00 AM. Apparently, we were also identified by manager to partiers, as we were verbally harassed all afternoon. During the night, two RVs in our party had sewerage valves mysteriously opened. Complained again to management and reply was only, "That's not good." No apology, no attempt to make amends. We rented a canoe, which leaked and took on water. One of the pools had chemical issues that resulted in cloudy, greenish water. Complete and utter disrespect for this gorgoues, natural resource as well as for the campers. Many recently empty seasonal sites, in addition to regular sites, and now we know why. We will not return. We will save ourselves the aggravation and head north to Vermont's pristine state parks, for less than half the money. We camped at Nature's Campsites in a Tent Trailer.
