A good portion of the campground are seasonal sites, which are kept clean and decent. The sites are close together. A cement pad, which have pros and cons. Shuffle board, basketball, horse shoes, tennis court, a playground, an arcade. There is a camp store. The site states there is yoga at 10:00am every Saturday, but when I went to go do it they said they stopped doing it a while ago (take this off your site). Quiet campground. Family-friendly. There is a pond you can swim in with a small beach area with lounge chairs and regular chairs. The adult lounge was never open the whole weekend (August). There were sand fleas that completely got my daughter's hands, feet, and face terribly (17 months old). Our site was covered in a ton of flies. We couldn't eat without 15 or more flies at us. We complained and got "I'm sorry". Thanks for nothing. We have never had a problem elsewhere like this. I wouldn't go back myself. We camped at Riverdale Farm Campsites in a Travel Trailer.

Overall nice campground. A pond and a river are on the grounds.Quiet during the week but a little rowdy on weekends. Convenient shore line location. Owner could be friendlier. We camped at Riverdale Farm Campsites in a Motorhome.

First Impression: Quite far off the beaten path. Appealing entrance. Safety: No concerns. Access: Exit 62 off I-95 in Connecticut, northwest, then immediate right onto Duck Hole Road for .3 mile, left over the river, left on Nod Road, bear left immediately onto River Road, go 1.5 miles. River Road in excellent condition, good signage, Garmin GPS is accurate. Office: Friendly staff, store with snacks, trinkets, fire wood, some food items, soft drinks, some RV equipment. Credit cards accepted. Call to reserve. My price reflects the Good Sam discount. Facilities: Swimming pond, no spa or fitness room. Game room with arcade equipment. Small, aging laundry room. CG has 4 restroom/shower buildings. Inspected 2 of them. Aging, some mold, poor lighting. No propane sales. Nice playground. No off-leash dog run. Campground: Not in a flood plain. No storm shelter available. Mix of meadow and forest. Interior roads are wide asphalt or packed gravel in good condition with gentle turns and no overhead obstacles. Mostly seasonal units, most well-maintained and nicely landscaped. Big rig and long coaches might have maneuvering problems. Tent sites and a few cabins. Sites are all nearby-to-spacious-to-secluded, level, grass/gravel, all back-in, well-mowed grass between. Pedestals at rear of site with electric 20/30/50; metered for seasonals. Adequate water pressure with good taste. Sewer pipe is 4" unthreaded, 2-4" above ground level. Some sites get concrete patios with good picnic tables. Fire rings. Good satellite views in meadow sites, none in the forest. Free cable TV. Free Wi-Fi (Tengonet). Verizon phone and 4G at 3 bars. No recycle bins. Noise: Playing children during the day - very quiet at night. Bug Report (mid July): no insect issues. Runners: CG roads good for running. Yoga: patios are plenty big enough for your mat. Conclusion: Score 6-Good. Entrance road split, incoming is nice asphalt, outgoing is gravel with axle breaking potholes. We camped at Riverdale Farm Campsites in a Fifth Wheel.

We used this CG at a launch point for a day in New York City. Drive to New Haven, catch the train to Grand Central Terminal, then the subway to Fulton Street and a short walk to the 9/11 memorial and museum. $18 entrance fee for veterans (have some form of veteran's ID).

They had us go wrong direction to get into site 137, would have been easier to go around and come in from other direction. Streets and narrow for larger rigs. VZW signal was OK and had problem getting locals on Dish due to trees. They have cable TV that had lots of channels and worked good. We camped at Riverdale Farm Campsites in a Motorhome.

Weekenders and long term campers mixed together. There is some breathing room between sites. Many outdoor activities available. Simple and clean bathhouses. We stayed overnight. Our pull through site was not level but there were some that were gravel and flat, easier to get in and out. Nice fire rings. We camped at Riverdale Farm Campsites in a Travel Trailer.

Office staff was very accommodating and we were given a choice of sites. The park is great for families, and there were no shortage of those. Roads are gravel and easy to navigate. Sites are gravel, and were also a bit muddy from recent rains. No issues with utilities and our site was open enough to get satellite. There was a patio, picnic table and fire pit. We would stay here again. We camped at Riverdale Farm Campsites in a Motorhome.

Great park, good location. Just watch the trees on River Road coming in; they hang low, not the campground's fault. The pond was some of the best times we have had in the water all summer long! Lots of events always going on in the campground. Being from Texas, we had to attend the Texas BBQ meal and hoe-down. They did a good job! We had site 8E. It was level and open on our door side. Lots of room, could park Jeep in open area next to us We camped at Riverdale Farm Campsites in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Clinton has all the basic stores you need, others are not that far away. The Ace Hardware store in town was one of the best I have ever been in, they care. Take the short drive up yo Rhode Island and check out the beach. We went kayaking out in Long Island Sound, unloaded at Harborside Marina. They were the cheapest: $10.00

We had a back-in site that was moderately unlevel front-to-back. Nearby trees blocked our satellite dish and this is probably the case for most sites. A number of local broadcast signals were available. Good Verizon signal. Park is clean and well-maintained. About half the sites were seasonals. Friendly office staff. Interior roads were slightly narrow with a few tight turns and numerous speed bumps. We camped at Riverdale Farm Campsites in a Motorhome.

We camped here with 3 other families over Memorial Day weekend, 2017. All the main roads are paved but the sites are very small and cramped. If you have more than one vehicle with you, you're in trouble because there's no room to park. Just about every seasonal had a golf cart, so there was always traffic going by. They had a live afternoon band on Saturday that was great and a dance with a DJ for the evening. The facilities were in great shape. The staff is friendly and accommodating. The check-in process was organized and one of the best we've seen. We camped at Riverdale Farm Campsites in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Ask for an outlying site away from the main site concentration. The sites are a bit bigger there, although you may not get 30 amp service.

It would be nice if they could tell you if you can get satellite on a site. And trim trees to make it more possible. On the weekends a lot of kids & adults walking around, not on the same side of the road & its tough to back out even when you're being careful. Driveway leaving needs to be leveled out. A lot of activities to do. We camped at Riverdale Farm Campsites in a Motorhome.

We have family in the area and since there are few campgrounds to choose from in Connecticut, we stay here. Although we requested a satellite-friendly site, ours was not. I don't believe the staff really knows what that means.

Sites next to the creek/river have "partial sewer," which means grey water only. Black water may only be dumped at the park exit station.

I would venture that over 70% of the sites are seasonal campers. Our back-in site was comfortable and ample for three slides. That said, once the weekend campers appeared we were pretty much trapped in place. As a previous reviewer observed, this is like a crowded "trailer park" on weekends.

Nevertheless, this is a fun place for kids, with swimming, fishing, and many organized activities. Our grand-kids (and one parent) had more than their share of fun on the rope swing, which made our stay enjoyable and worthwhile. We camped at Riverdale Farm Campsites in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

The nearby town of Guilford boasts the largest town common or green in the US.

Guilford also features a quaint marina and small beach.

Hammonasset State Park, practically a stone's throw from Riverdale, features hundreds of campsites as well as welcoming sandy beaches.
