Small hidden gem of a campground, quiet and peaceful. Most campers were in motorhomes, including several full-timers. This is one of the few Army Corps of Engineers campgrounds in New England, and full-timers know what a great value the Army Corps campgrounds are. We set up our screen room on the site and parked our towed vehicle in the nearby parking lot. Hosts were very friendly and helpful. Our site (2) was easy to back into, and hookups worked well. Dual water connections. Very nice hiking paths all around. Easy access from route 395. We will likely stay here again. - DaveAndJoyce

We have stayed here multiple times and it remains the best option around this area. We paid the senior rate for our 30 amp site. Hookups were good. It was late May and the gypsy moths were just coming out and made things a bit messy. A nice quiet area. OTA TV not the best with just ION and PBS stations. Very good cell phone coverage. - Bob and Inga

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

This was a tough one to review. My rating reflects a comparison to other campgrounds which this is really not. It's a concert venue with some 200 plus seasonal sites and very few (I was told maybe as little as six) sites available for reservation. If you are there when there's not a concert, there's very little to offer by way of amenities/activities. They have a very nice pool and bathhouse and the facilities where clean. The camp store doubles as a gift shop/main entrance on show days and offers virtually nothing as far as supplies go. There is a gas station with a Food Mart adjacent to the property which you can walk to. It has everything (including Subway, Dunkin Donuts) just not a lot of camping supplies. When shows aren't going on you can wander around the venue and have access to a lakefront. They do charge something extra per person and require a $25 refundable deposit for the pool/bathhouse. If you're there for a concert weekend they require a 2 night minimum. They allow you to check out late on Sunday which is nice because they really pack them in. The venue is a great place to see performers up close and they have all the usual concessions. There's plenty of space to wander around and you can still hear the music down by the lakefront. The people who work there and the seasonals who stay there were all very friendly. But be forewarned it is a party atmosphere. Lot's of music and cocktails, and lots of circling around in golf carts. But again, I can't say enough about how friendly people were. - McNamara's Band

The sites are not level and there is no recreation during the week. There is a lake, but there is no recreation on it. I would not camp here again. - har-fl

This campground has a lot of seasonal sites. We stayed in the Nashville area in the front close to the office on huge concrete site that was 30x60. Water, electric and sewer was good. Wi-Fi was strong for access but did not connect to the internet. We have a sprint Aircard and used it instead. This campground caters more to people that want to attend concerts such as Billy Ray Cyrus or Keith Anderson who performed the weekend before we arrived and Charlie Daniels was scheduled to perform the following weekend. If you stay on a weekday, can get in the Nashville sites and have Camp Club USA it isn't a bad place to stay. We would only stay here for a couple of days when passing through. If you stay here say Hi to the gentleman who lives there and loves dogs more than people. - TXBobcat

If you're looking for the city dump, this is it. I have never seen a park as trashed as this one.
The handicap ramp has several boards missing and it's not useable.
The swimming pool looks like dismal swamp or maybe an algae experiment for the local high school.
When I checked in there was a styrofoam container on the counter with a fork on top of it. The next morning the container was on the railing outside the office. The trash can in the office was overflowing and there was trash on the floor.
The laundry has two large cages with large birds in them. The floor around them was littered with whatever falls out of the cages.
It's a beautiful location which has been left to deteriorate. It doesn't speak well of the owners however nice they may seem. This gross neglect doesn't happen overnight. - User3255

This place is a real dump with nice, quirky people running it. They don't even weed-wack around the office which is the first thing you see. We couldn't level our rig so we got our exercise running uphill to the bedroom in the back. There is no fire pit and we couldn't reach the sewer in our pull-through without leaving the car on the road. It is really a low end trailer park. There is wifi, but I couldn't access it. I ended up using my personal hotspot on my phone. This was a one night stop so no biggie. - RVerMJ

This place has definitely seen better days. They do have a pool, but it would have to be stifling out before any of us would use it. We camped with two other families. We come here because it's cheap and not too far away from the Woodstock (CT) Agricultural Fair that runs Labor Day Weekend. We don't spend much time at the campground other than to sleep and eat breakfast. Other than that, we're out all day. So it serves it's purpose.
The sites we had were tiered at the back of the campground, so we pretty much had the area all to ourselves. The utilities were rather new and in good condition.
The Owners are a bit odd, but nice people. Propane is a bargain, so it's a good place to fill up if you're low. - grumpah

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

This park does NOT have a sewer hook up, but they do have a grey water drain and a honey wagon. They guy that runs the place was so nice. They had some great events while here. The RV sites are nestled in the woods and very nice! One of our favorites and we will be back! - FrugalNavyWife

This rustic, hilly campground is nestled in the woods along Chamberlain pond. The access roads and site pads/patios are gravel. The first 10 sites have water, 30a electric and a gray water only dump port. There is a dump station. These same sites will accommodate bigger rigs more easily as the road is a little wider. The rest of the sites are W/E only and scattered among the seasonals. Most sites are reasonably level but remember this campground is built into the hills so you will need to compensate. The length and width of every site varies somewhat but you had a feeling of privacy in the trees. We had to jockey our 39' rig into a position so the slides avoided trees. Even still, our site's campfire pit ended up under a slide so we didn't have any fires. Tree trimming is needed as the rig scraped against branches when backing into place. Water pressure was 40 - 45psi. 30amp power was stable. In spite of 80 degree temps, we never ran the A/C because the dense tree shade kept the rig much cooler. Cable TV was good and available for $5 a night. There's no wi-fi but our hotspot worked fine. The grounds were clean and maintained. The office/rec room building is fairly new and sports a store, library, game room. Behind it is a large blacktopped pad for listening to music, playing basketball, etc. The 50 acre pond has a variety of fish, no license needed and it's catch and release. We met a number of the seasonals and found them welcoming and engaging. The staff was friendly and very helpful with information about the area. The nightly rate for the Labor Day holiday is bumped to $60. Considering no 50a service, no site dump, no wi-fi, extra $ for cable, site accommodation issues for big rigs, their regular $40 rate is more appropriate for a holiday weekend and still high compared to other campgrounds where a similar daily rate includes all the amenities. We liked the rustic qualities of this campground but would look for other places next time. - Born2Roam

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

Lovely, woodsy campground. Looks like mostly long term residents but they keep a few spots for nightly campers like us. Very pleasant owners who gave helpful suggestions about Sturbridge restauants. Right near Sturbridge and far superior to campgrounds we saw in Sturbridge several years ago. Everything worked great and wished we could have stayed longer. - Andrea W

The campground is older but well kept. Many friendly seasonals and the staff is extremely friendly and helpful. It was raining when we got to the campground but the roads are solid and trees trimmed up nicely. Its very quiet which is what we seek, no noisy late parties or early risers making noise. Showers are clean and they have laundry on site. Overall a pleasant experience and we will be back. - Ed Brodeur

Stayed during a rainy time of bad weather. So many trees that you feel as if you are in a cave at the campground. Hard to maneuver any rig bigger than 28 feet long. Hook-ups worked but needed maintenance. Not a lot to do, Sturbridge Village near by that is it. You have the Nipmuk woods , it might interest some. However the owner is very friendly and extremely helpful, It is a family run campground. Many areas office ,store , are on the "Honor" system, however when in need the best way to reach someone is from the cell phone number they give you. The office registration area is often empty not anyone there to help you. There are many seasonal campers, but they are very friendly and helpful. During tornado warnings the owners said to go to their basement , did not have to help us but did. Quaint old fashion style campground. - Rhonda51

Expensive for what you get, rude owners that just care about finding different ways to charge you for every little thing and sometimes double charge you when they "forget" you already paid. - Bert102
Oct 2015 - $35.00
Beautiful place to get away for $800/month. Local roads are "scenic", which means the 25mph speed limit is enforced by narrow, badly maintained roads. AT&T reception is two bars at best. No WiFi, cable costs extra, 10-15 channels with a good aerial, and plenty of hot water for $1 in the clean bath house. Air conditioning is superfluous except for a few nights in August-shady sites with cool breezes. Tight roads servicing the generous seasonal sites, easy assess to the "Field" for big rigs and weekenders. Management is friendly and helpful. - Ernest Station

My family and I spent a week at this campground and had such a wonderful time. Camping has become a summer hobby of ours and we were delighted to find a place that finally met the criteria we were looking for. The grounds were clean, the lake was beautiful, and there was no loud night time noise to keep my two children awake- something that I have run into problems with during stays at other parks. The management was very helpful, and even delivered firewood to our campsite for us. My husband and I enjoyed a live band around a bonfire right by the lake - very relaxing, and my two children really liked the movie night offered as well as tie dye your shirt day. We brought along our dog, and even though there is a no pet walking policy, there was a private road adjacent to the park where we were able to walk him every morning. If you are looking for an enjoyable real camping experience, this is the place to be. - cnms248

My family and I stayed here for the first time and the last time over the past Memorial Day weekend. The management was not helpful at all. When we had a problem getting our trailer level upon arrival, we were told someone would be by to help, and not one worker showed up. We were also placed so close to a fellow camper that we felt we had no privacy at all; all of the RV's are packed in too close quarters. The roads are made of dirt, and trash is not picked up. We were also kept up at night because of rowdy night time noise; people playing music too loud and others being too loud outside their RV. Not one grounds keeper came over to ask people to quiet down. I have been camping for many years, and this is one campground I will never go back to. - cnms248

Kings is the perfect family camping experience because they are welcoming, helpful, and share years of their knowledge. They are clean, safe, and have a variety of activities for all ages all summer long. - Tracy2013

We came here for Labor Day. It is mostly seasonal, and a small campground. When I saw how small and how many seasonals, about 99%, I thought we were in trouble. But I was wrong. The people were all very nice and helpful. The way the sites are set up you can be awning to awning with your friends. We had 3 trailers together and we were in a circle all together awning to awning. We loved it. They don't bother you about anything. They don't make you put your fire out at 11pm. They have a lot of activities going on. Talent contest, DJ, bingo, kids might be bored but the adults had plenty to do. The campsites and campground was very clean and the seasonal sites were kept up very nice. Beautiful lake. Paddle boat, and canoe rentals. The only thing is they offer WiFi but we couldn't get it, all the codes were taken up. They said the office where they get the codes from closed early because of the hurricane. We did get a lot of rain on Friday and winds on Saturday and Sunday. Overall we liked it so much that we booked it for next year. I only gave it a 6 because it was a small campground and no pool. The store is very limited too. We went to another campground down the road and used their store. Kings campground store didn't have propane cylinders, or holding tank chemicals? What camp store doesn't carry that stuff? We went to the Woodstock fair and other friends found hiking trails near by. - meister

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
