I'm confused by the low rating here. We had a delightful stay at this KOA. The staff was beyond helpful and set us up with our KOA membership. The restrooms were clean, the site was level and we had the greatest fire pit of all time! One of the neighbors on a permanent site stopped over to chat, as did one of the other workers who we absolutely loved! We had such a good time around the campfire that night!! The next morning I felt like I was leaving family and they didn't make us feel at all rushed out, but chatted and shared places to visit and good roads for traveling. We were hoping to visit one of their other KOA campgrounds, but our travels took us in another direction. I would not hesitate to stay at this KOA again. - sssccckkk1952

I am very surprised that KOA has allowed the campground to affiliate. It is filled with many unused, rotting and dilapidated RVs. The person in charge often sits in the window of the office with a radar gun. If a vehicle is going over 5mph immediately upon entry to the park off the highway, she screeches like a banshee at the driver at the top of her substantial lungs! She is inhospitable, impolite and dour. Be careful when booking! Their sites have electric and water (which throughout our stay ran the color of urine) and grey-water only onsite dumps. They will pump your black water for an additional $12 per pump. Very little sunlight reaches the floor of the park, and it is located immediately next to a salvage operation - noisy! There are two redeeming qualities: it is across the street from the state park with nice hiking trails, and most of its employees are polite. If I were to stay in the area again (probably), I will certainly look for a different campsite. For the price, this one is a BUST! - jamesboardman

We stayed one night on our way home and this is an older park that was not well maintained but we knew this. This park is becoming a KOA and they are trying very hard to clean it up, service was very good and friendly plus the site was level. We felt bad for the maintenance people working in 90+ degree heat We will go back to see how they have improved. - toytowner

I cant say anything more that hasn't been already been said about the beauty and serenity of Charlestown Breachway, it is paradise with a slight downside...The rules of this state park clearly states NO ANIMALS. Don't get me wrong, I love animals and have dogs of my own. We have been camping at the Breachway for 40 or so years, and then about 7 or so years ago campers started showing up with their pet dogs. Some say they are therapy dogs. Some are but most are not. Each year it seems more and more dogs are allowed in. I'm sure there are pet friendly campgrounds around, go there if you have pets. The state needs to enforce this rule better at Charlestown Breachway. I haven't yet and don't need to step into a pile of poop which I have seen and avoided...enough of that rant...everything else there is perfection, beaches are raked daily, the park is always free of litter, everyone is friendly, car parking is tight during the summer months..as always, we will be back again and again. - Gary gmoney

Location, location, location. That's what Charlestown Breachway is all about. Hard to beat being RIGHT on the ocean for $20/night. We camped in our Roadtrek and kept the back doors open at night to listen to the surf and catch the breeze. Beautiful. Fellow campers are very friendly. Convenient to beach and kayaking/fishing. Yes, space is VERY tight. This is not a campground but rather a parking lot with space for your camper & table/chairs/awning. Just know going into it that you are here for the location. We found the staff to be very friendly and accommodating. Our stay involved 2 site transfers (best we could do given how last minute we booked). Check out is 11am. Neither of the campers leaving the site we were moving to were out by 11 but the staff worked with us to get them moving. Now let's talk generator use. It's a problem. Generator use is allowed 8am-8pm and there are folks who run it the WHOLE time. There are no rules as to where you can place your portable unit. The guy next to us put his at the rear of his coach, which was right outside our coach. Very loud & gasoline smell ALL DAY. Some regulations on generator use would be very welcome. Have 2 hour windows for generator use would be much better. A few people brought their home generators to use and those were particularly loud. Rules in this area need to change. But truly, that is the only downside to this place. We'll be back! - CDG

One change since our last review here is that the sites are now marked at the sides. So you can setup anywhere between the markers as long as you do not go past them. The old rule was to center your camping unit on the rock with the site number on it. This created problems when a MH was pulled in next to a 5th / trailer that was backed in. You would be door to door and very close. The markers allow the units to create some separation. But it can still be really tight here. - Bob and Inga

This is a great small park. We have a 36' class A, which we were able to back into site #7 easily. Spacious private site, set back off road. Last year, we were in site #9 which was a little tricky to back into because of the angle. It would be easier to pull straight into #9 but then the fire ring may be on the wrong side of your rig. Unfortunately, there are no pull-through sites here. Sites #7, 8 and 9 are located in a little alcove which would make for a great three-family compound. No hookups at this campground, but we like boondocking so we don't mind. Hookups would make this campground a 10! There is a water spigot across the street from our site. Bath house is brand new, and we were extremely impressed with the showers! Spacious, clean, a nice door separating your personal dressing area from your shower, great water pressure and temp. 75 cents for 3 minutes, 25 cents each additional minute. There is a dump site near the bath house. Even though it's the first week of August, almost 8 am, it's nice and quiet here. There is a nice lake (reservoir) for fishing, swimming, kayaking, etc. Plenty of hiking and challenging mountain biking. We love this campground! - Bobalou

This RI state park is very nicely laid out, each site spacious. This time of year, the park was almost empty and we were lucky to be able to chose the site that would work well for our 40' big rig. Roads and sites are gravel, some more level than others, and some with trees in the wrong places! Big rig owners should know which site they are reserving. No utilities but park is clean and appears well-maintained. Located on the Bowdish Reservoir there are swimming and boat launch areas. Many trails around as well. For geocachers, a few caches within the park boundary. - DiplomatTraveler

Good Verizon voice & data. NO DUMP STATION! Limited drinking water access. Some sites very unlevel and due to reservation system, cannot change sites. I do not recommend this campground for anyone with an RV unless they are very familiar with the specific campsites. Price listed for out of state campers plus reservation fees. We stayed 5 nights. - earlymun

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

Everything others have said about this clean, wooded park is spot on. Sites are very large. Pinic table is huge with room at one end for handicap access. Two nice lean-to areas for overnight tenters. Only negative is pump out is horizontal instead of verticle and allows for some escape of sewage. I would definitely come back to this gem again. - Trainspotter

Small 24 sites, 11 w water and electric, campground by COE Lake. 1 1/2 hour to Boston. Sites are large, level and wooded. Hosts friendly and helpful. Downsides include no 50 amp electric and no sewer. Dump station is dated and difficult to use. - Donauw

We again enjoyed our stay at West Thompson Lake Campground. Campground is heavily wooded, mostly level, with lots of wooded space between sites which made for good privacy. Our 30 amp W/E hookups were in good working order. Entrance road to campsites moderately hilly but very manageable. Not much has changed since we were here a few years ago except the addition of a new building housing the fresh water tanks for the campground. Camp hosts friendly & professional as always. Sites are about 75' deep with plenty of width. Hosts make rounds at quiet time along with park rangers making routine patrols during the day. With the exception of one camper, found everyone respectful. Bathrooms/showers kept clean and were updated. We enjoyed this campground and would certainly return or recommend this place to anyone. - mdcamping
