Nice state park. Has no hookups. Nice level pads. Lots of grass. - Bjb1775

This is a state campground with no hookups. It has two separate camping areas about a mile apart. We stayed at the Wolf's Den area for 3 nights, which has large sites, both very grassy and well maintained, with the road and parking areas level and paved. The Mashamoquet camping area is about a mile away, and much more primitive. It would probably not accommodate large campers very well, and seems better suited to tents and maybe small campers. There are seven miles of trails through the park, all very pleasant for hiking, which connect the two camping areas, various rock formations, and also provide access to a swimming pond in the park. (Can also be accessed by road.) All things considered, this is a very quiet and well maintained campground with a friendly staff, and for $11 per night, a very good value. We would gladly stay here again. - Strahwk

This campground used to be a great family place, however in recent years it has seriously gone downhill, as you can see by its dated facilities and drastic decline in seasonal campers. The basketball court has not been refinished in a long time, the park is constantly swarming with hornets and bees, and the beach area is filthy. The events they hold are mediocre at best, with the adult events turning into a bunch of people getting drunk and obnoxious quickly. The events for kids are repetitive and poorly hosted and attended. The drug use in this campground has seriously increased and campers are regularly broken into and stolen from. Seasonal campers are unwelcoming to weekend visitors. - CamperRay

This seemed like mostly seasonal sites with additions built onto trailers. There was one site- "Jake's Place" that had so much junk on it (I mean junk) that the theme from "Sanford and Son" came into my head every time that I walked by it. The water in the cove looked low, as if it had been drained. The pool was clean. The staff was friendly. There were activities every night in the rec hall until 11. This wasn't a peaceful experience that we were looking for. I don't think we will go back. - RIcamper

The sites were pretty much out in the open, with very little privacy, ours was just dirt, although we did see some were grassy. The seasonals were not very welcoming. We also had trouble getting a pizza delivered, with the pizza places telling us that there has been trouble at this campground in the past. The bathrooms were dirty. To be fair, the lake is very nice, but not nice enough to stay here again. - JewelsRDH

Stayed at the campground over Labor Day Weekend. Plenty of activities for family fun. Our site was plenty big enough to accommodate our 26' travel trailer but some sites with large rigs were tight. One thing that was very disappointing was the campfire wood we had to purchase since we could not bring our own. Hard oak wood was extremely wet and difficult to start and keep fire burning. Needed an adapter to dump grey water in system. - Khfamily

I like this campground alot... They have alot to do for families with little kids. It's a smaller campground, nice game room, I wish they had a full time snack bar, the ladies in the front office are so AWESOME. Gets crazy busy and crazy crowded on special weekends (memorial day, 4th of July, etc...) wifi isn't the best..not sure if that matters to some people - BfrmRI

We stayed here last summer with the grandkids when we had to camp fairly close to home and it worked out great. there was a lot going on for the kids that weekend and for the adults with live bands throughout the weekend. it was a very hot weekend in the 90s and they did lose power but everybody in the park was running their air conditioners and they had the power company out to fix the problem within a couple hours. The campground is very clean, kinda on the rustic side but still very nice, sites are a little small like a lot of CGs are but there was adequate room for our 31' Class C. They served breakfast Sunday morning for a reasonable price; we did not partake because we had the kids. Staff was very friendly and helpful, restrooms were clean. I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it for anybody visiting or passing through the area - Banditoman60

We stayed here 2 nights passing through the area. We enjoyed our stay and we were pleased with the campground. Our site was grass and very level and also had FHUs. We were able to get a few OTA TV channels as well as 3 bars of Verizon. Never did get WiFi to work. There are a lot of seasonal folks, but everyone we encountered was nice. We would stay here again if in the area. - jtl2

Very laid-back atmosphere, friendly staff and friendly seasonal people, Wish they had wi fi, no cell phone service with t-mobile over there. But there is a pay phone, good store there and not expensive, they keep their prices affordable, - Zztammyzz

We were shocked at the condition of this campground. Drove in and right back out. Did use the restroom, and it was clean, but I was over come by the smell of Lestoil cleaner! Play ground was on dirt with no mulch, grass, pea stone, etc. Sites are one on top of the other, and the roads are terrible. I am notifying KOA to go and inspect this campground. You would even have difficulty riding a bicycle. NOT a typical KOA campground. Do not go to this campground! - Mike and Rose

Our site was adequate. We had huge rocks to drive over, but once we were set up, we had a nice view of the road. We enjoy when they have a burger shack so we can enjoy not cooking occasionally. Unfortunately, the burger/ice cream shack "Bubbas" that they advertise never opened and they told me it's because of the economy. I was disappointed in the condition of the pool. It was also very cold. There is nobody to pick up trash. We had to drive it to the back of the campground which was an extremely rutted road. That was a terrible inconvenience. There were no activities for any children to participate in. There is a nice playground though. - AlracYam

This was our first trip to this campground. We went with another couple. I had to send multiple emails to get answers to my questions. Two days before arriving, I still had not gotten the information about final prices due to "bring a friend, camp 1/2 price" that was listed on the website, but not verbally told to us on the phone. Upon arriving, my husband and the other husband camping with us had a terrible time getting into the sites. They were far to small for our 35' fifth wheels. If we had not been with the other couple, we would not have been able to use our fire ring, canopy or picnic table. As it was, we used the empty site next to use for the campfire due to the small sites. On Saturday, we went up to the store between 9:30 and 10:00, but it was closed. There wasn't any firewood and we ended up going to another campground to look around and buy wood there. The DJ was to start at 7:00, but it was much later before that happened. Dogs were howling around the clock for 2 1/2 days. I was double charged for one site even though several emails confirmed that both sites would receive the 1/2 price for the weekend. It is not a place that I would recommend if you want activities or have a large camper. - lauriejm

I booked one night. When I arrived I was pleasantly surprised how well stocked the office was with everything needed to camp including toys for the kids. I was undecided on the site I wanted to stay. I was escorted on a golf cart to sites along the water. The staff member suggested I use sites 61 or 62. Most sites on the river were taken by seasonals. The site was easy to get in and out. There were lots of trees and was very relaxing. The bathrooms and showers were the cleanest I ever camped at. It was so relaxing I stayed a second day and used the pool. It too was the cleanest I every used. The roads were kind of ruff and there is no need for a 5 mile speed limit sign as it would be the fastest you could drive without experience discomfort. This place has it all. Wide open to treed sites. A big pavilion and canoes to rent, fishing, horseshoes. basketball court. The only thing in poor shape was the miniature golf. I can't wait to go again. - niftysixty

We camped here with 2 other families. There were 9 kids from ages 5-10. The good: Sites were big under tall pines in the area that we camped. This gave us great shade. We had W/E/S, and our site was relatively level with only a few roots around the big pine trees. Owners are very nice. Craft time was fun for the kids (free for 1st craft, $1 for the second) and the lady running it was very patient with my detail oriented son who took a long time to finish. Pool was clean, but got crowded. There is mining and panning available for a fee (I thought was reasonable), our kids loved this. Camp store was reasonably priced too. We camped within sight of the pavilion and the older playground. A second playground that the kids loved is closer to the office. This was in good shape. There was a nice level loop that the kids could ride their bikes around that was in sight of our site. There is also canoeing and boat rentals, as well as mini golf and a museum all for a fee, but we didn't do any of those things. The area that we were in had us in contact with only one seasonal trailer, and they were super nice to all of us. The bad: There was a group of tenters right next to the pavilion that had a pitbull. There is no policy on aggressive dogs. Front desk told me that they would keep an eye on it. I just kept a close eye on my kids! I have a dog of my own but would never bring her here because there were dogs everywhere with no restrictions on where they could go as long as they were on leashes. This may be good for some, but not all dogs can handle lots of kids running around nearby: like pit bulls. At the dance pavilion, there is a concession stand. After waiting in line, with no one behind us, we were told by a rude girl, that they were now closed. Bathroom toilets looked clean but had lots of cobwebs and spiders hanging around. (I know, this is camping in the woods, but this freaked my daughter out.) Overall, I liked the campground, but was really concerned about the big dogs around. I would definitely camp here again, but I will wait until after the season is over, and ask about the dogs. - Itsatrip

We stayed here Columbus Day weekend which coincided with their Halloween celebration. This was a blast and virtually each and every site participated. Not much else to do here as far as amenities go, but they do have a nice fishing lake. - McNamara's Band

We came here on a whim. Showed up with no reservation. They welcomed us in with a nice wooded site. This is definitely a smaller campground, mostly seasonals but everyone seemed friendly. Definitely worth a return trip. I would say the only complaint I'd have is that their dump station is on the wrong side of the road make sure you have at least a 15' hose. - Sstratton6175

Owners seemed less than thrilled to have us there. We are full-timers and move frequently. We think we are ideal campers (no kids, no dogs, quiet, no parties, etc.). It was very strange, we felt like we were always being 'watched' so they could tell us we were doing something wrong. They did tell us we were driving too fast but it was hard for us to believe because the roads were dirt and uneven with rocks so who would drive fast?? We were in a back in spot that was very hard to maneuver around all the tree limbs. They say they are big rig friendly but we felt it was very tight for our 35 ft. rig. Turning corners was a major effort have to back up to miss large boulders on one side and tree limbs on the other. We did have a very nice fire pit. The dump station is very hard to get to and is on the wrong side for most RVs. We won't be going back here. - RunAroundSue

Lots of rain this spring to start our camping season at Nickerson Park. This year we stayed in a different area of the park and unfortunately our site & area is at one of the lower points of the campground as there were lots of ruts and I thought more could be done to improve the drainage. Our hookups were in good working order. Good seasonal presence here, some seasonal campers were showing some age. Bathrooms/showers were clean. Staff was professional and friendly. We did not try the WiFi but we had a good signal on our Verizon cell phone. Geography at campground is level with open and shaded areas. Entrance road to the campground is unattractive. We enjoyed this campground and would return. - mdcamping

This may have been a nice campground at one time, but it has become run down over time. Almost half of the sites are seasonal and about half of them are starting to look like trash heaps. The riverside sites are hard to back into because they have rocks and logs on the side of the road which limits your ability to turn. We got our 30-foot trailer in eventually, but I don't think a longer trailer would fit. The wifi is super slow (unusable) and we had a weak TMobile signal. We had an area of clear sky so no problem pointing our satellite dish. The staff here are really friendly, but there is definitely a communications problem. We received a call before we arrived telling us they had to shut off the water to some of the sites due to cold weather and they were going to move us to another site. We were also told that the water might be shut off to all sites at night if it was going to get below freezing. No problem. We could fill our fresh water tank and use it at night. When we arrived we found they had moved us only 3 sites down (on the same water line) and were told the water was off at all sites and it was staying off. That would have been nice to know that before we arrived. I carry water in my jerrycan across the park for 2 days only to discover the water had been turned back on. To conserve water, I decided to use the camp showers. Big mistake. They are coin operated and the coin machines don't work in some of the showers (which you only find out after losing your money). The showers are not heated (neither are the bathrooms) and once you find one that works, there is no way to control water temperature. The circuit breaker routinely flipped even though we were not using much power. The playground equipment looked old and outdated. They need to trim the low hanging tree limbs. We watched campers crack limbs when trying to drive to their site. The campground is badly in need of maintenance. If you have a choice, I'd recommend you stay somewhere else. - Chuck Shrader

If I focus on the scenery surrounding this campground, the steep, rocky hills, the babbling brook, the woodland just receiving spring's first touch, then I can say that this was a good week. If I think about the specifics of my site and experience, I come to a different conclusion. When I arrived, no one was there to check me in or point me to a camp site. After half an hour, a staff member, friendly but without authority to made decisions, was able call the manager, who pointed me to a site. It was a back-in, not the pull-through I had arranged, and it was right across the lane from a dumpster, so I had to set up in a cloud of fresh spring flies. The site was nice and wide, and I backed in with little trouble, but the surface was soft and muddy with recent rains. The manager did call on me later to apologize, but it took a third contact to actually get the receipt I asked for. I had earlier posted the address of the park to Netflix, in order to receive DVDs from my queue. They discouraged that address, due to past frequent returns of shipments, so I decided to do without Netflix DVDs for a week. The upshot is that the park suffers from weak management. There seems to be a lot of work going on in the park, but what happens in the office is slipshod. My site had full hookups, though the water pressure was low. The rocky hills interfered with cellular service, so my wifi was weak, but still good enough to stream movies through my Apple TV. Despite the management issues, I had a reasonably good week at Nickerson Farm Family Campground, though I would look elsewhere before going back. - Jim Fulton

We were given site #. Map and signage in park poor. Our site had 18 inch tall weeds, no table, no fire pit. Water hookup and electric hook up are not close together. Office staff not very helpful trying to get our group, 3 sites situated elsewhere. The first site was located near old construction vehicles and piles of construction debris.
Our second night we were frightened by a woman wandering into our site yelling at 12:30 am. We called the office no answer. We had to call 911. Woman was taken away and we and others nearby were questioned.
The next day there was no electricity or running water. Entire facility lost power a short time on Saturday and there was none on Sunday. There was no running water or working toilets or showers on Sunday.
We left early to go home.
I have made numerous attempts to speak with someone in charge. The office will not give me the manager's name. I left my contact information but was told: "Don't expect that anyone will call you back."
Overall camp does not look maintained and facilities are not modern or clean. Customer service was extremely poor. - Lynn Botelho

Upon checking in I had to wait almost 45 minutes to be sent to a site that was occupied. I was charged extra for my 2 companion/service dogs. There is nothing much for kids to do, they say they have kid activities but nothing fantastic. It would be nice if there was a pool but the lake was okay. Their modern bathrooms might have been modern in 1980 but the machine to regulate the 25 cent showers (yes you must pay 25 cents) was on point (working properly) with warm/cold water. The campground Is full of old junk construction equipment. Find another place, you will be thankful you did. - Melissa N

We arrived and first had to pay extra for our 2 dogs. A lab, and a 15 lb rescue. We were then told no motorcycles allowed in the park! Its our only transportation! We are quiet grandparents, and had to park the bike near the park office with other bikes. The walk to our bike from our site was 1/2 mile. We were sent to a site, but it was occupied. When I called the office, they sent Us to another, that was occupied! They then proceeded to send us into an area that was too tight for our 37' motorhome. We backed into a rock trying to get out. We finally picked a site that was huge, and private. The lake was beautiful, the campground quiet. The lady that owns the place shouldn't be in the business of working with people. I asked for a golf cart ride to our site, as I have a lung disease. She told me flat out NO! The girls answering the phone at the desk admitted they don't know what size campers fit into the sites. Huge beautiful park. - Cyclegirl00
