Smaller state park campground that is in a good location off the Mass Pike in central Massachusetts. The park is fine for a one night stop if you are passing through in a RV. Most of the sites are suited for tents or small trailers. We had a very long back in site that was level so we didn't unhook. There is a new bath house in the lower section that is very nice. Small beach on a good size pond. Mass residents get a break on camping fees. - linnemj

We had a great weekend stay at this park. Well-maintained, and the campsites were absolutely huge and super private. They let us set up a "kids tent" so we weren't all jammed into the pop-up camper. Bathrooms were reasonably clean-ish for a state park (i.e., tidied up, but rarely scrubbed with bleach, so bring your flip-flops to the shower). Shower was nice and hot, and the water pressure was good. The entire campsite was nice and quiet. Our dog was welcome if kept leashed and trails were well-maintained. The beach (for campers only) is lovely. No dogs allowed on the beach itself, but you can sit at the picnic tables to watch the kids swim. No water or electricity on the campsites. Water spigots and bathrooms were a bit far from some of the spots. It won't matter in the daytime, but those 2am bathroom breaks with flashlights can be an inconvenient walk. Bathrooms TRY to be handicap accessible. The one along the pond is brand new and totally accessible, but the ones up on the hill are older and tight to navigate a wheelchair. If you stay up on the hill off one of the side-roads, call and ask the staff for guidance before you book because, while the campsites are pull-in and absolutely huge, there are a few spots that might be tight to haul a larger rig up between the trees. We would stay here again. - Anna_Erishkigal

We booked site #39 online, based on proximity to bath house (at least, it looked that way on the map). No pictures of individual campsites on the ReserveAmerica booking site, so we were kind of winging it. We unexpectedly arrived at the campground around 10pm, after a long and grueling day on the road. The site (or what we could see of it) seemed nice, but was very unlevel, with a steep, narrow driveway. Combined with the winding, tree-lined loop road, there was no way we were going to be able to back into that site in the dark. We drove back to the camp office to hand our tag back in, ready to find a cheap motel for the night. Much to our delight, they had a pull-through site (#15), that had just been vacated minutes before we got there. So, we drove over to said site, and it was much better. We were able to pull in and get leveled relatively easily, even in the pitch-black. The site was very spacious, close to the bath house, and had a really nice view of Walker Pond through the surrounding trees. Again, we were only here for a quick overnight stop on the way home from Maine, but from what little we saw, this seemed like a nice little state park. Most sites were heavily wooded, and the pond is very pretty. Staff was also very friendly and helpful. Bath houses, were ok: roomy, well-lit, but quite old and a bit smelly. Don't think they are cleaned very often. Overall, this seemed to be a decent campground, and I wouldn't have a problem stopping overnight again if I'm traveling in the area. I would, however, opt for a pull-through site right off the bat! - Jenventola

Spent a night passing through. Great stopover. Easy access to the site with the coach. A lot of amenities for kids and adults. Very family friendly. We would definitely stay here again. - MJB

I did not read reviews prior to booking here and probably best I didn't. We used this as a halfway overnight on our way to and from Bar Harbor Maine as there just weren't many options. It was easy to get to off I84, some low limbs on River road but manageable. Both sites we had were meant to have 2 trailers on. Luckily we never had to deal with that, because they would have been super tight. Overall this place is a dump. Wife and I walked it the first night we stayed. Seasonals everywhere, most are in poor condition at best. Abandoned RV's in the woods, equipment all over the place, their shop gate is always open, and what a mess that area is. The regular rate was $84 per night, I found a discount code and got it for $70 a night. Still way to much. Roads and entrance are tight. Oh, and the note in the campground map that says no air conditioners or electric heaters unless prior arrangements are made. Really? My prior arrangement was paying $70 a night to stay in this dump. On our way home at site 151 on a Friday night was met with a ridiculously loud DJ rave party on the patio that went from 6-10PM. I don't know how my 11 month old son fell asleep, the wife and I sure couldn't. This is not a destination campground. It's barely ok for an (expensive) overnight. - ferguson65

If you thought that this Jellystone Park is a serine, woodsy park, think again. This park is nothing more than a run down trailer park full of permanents that need to be evicted. We booked a pull-through full hook- up site to accommodate our 40-ft 5'er. What we got was a pull-through site, no sewer, no 50Amp, and jammed into a site where our slides were almost touching the slides in the next site. I will say that the staff did try to help resolve our problems the best they could. Don't waste your time or money here. - Rick Frazier

We were there first of April when park opened for the season. Needs a lot of work on roads and maintenance to be ready for summer rush. But nice place to camp. - geo cong

This is a Thousand Trails RV Park, it's a real nice park. The employees are already friendly and helpful. There is a free honeywagon that comes every Monday and Thursday. Spots mostly fairly tight, too many annuals and they allow the public to come in. Other than that it's a real nice park. - Gramps1Grammieroo

Sadly we didn't check on RVParkreviews before booking this park. It is now called Sturbridge RV Resort. Close to the highway but that's where it ends for positive experience. The the roads are tight and bumpy - it took us 1/2 hour to get into our site which was the tightest we've ever experienced. The side of our trailer was damaged by the neighbor's awning. The unit behind us was less than 10" from ours. We had to park our truck on the side with our awning and hardly had room to open the door. We couldn't extend our slides fully. We asked about WIFI and employee said "You can try it but it doesn't work." Since they stated WIFI on their website we asked in the office and were told we could pay extra to use it in the office. There are many seasonal units that are trashy. The people behind us had a campfire on the ground with no firepit - no supervision in the park at all. Assuming most people staying were Thousand Trails members and didn't pay much to stay; one family coming in were given a smaller spot than us and were told they overbooked so that's all they had. Very poorly run park. - Catsinatrailer

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

One of our campground memberships is with RPI and this campground is included in that membership. We are supposed to be able to stay in RPI campgrounds for $10 but booking costs another $2 and, upon arrival I was informed that since I wanted electricity there is another $3 a night tacked on. It's still a low price but a surcharge for electricity seems a bit over the top to me. Anyway, our campsite was reasonably level and very close to our neighbors on each side. Really, there is barely room for an awning to be put out. Also, since the campsites are rather shallow, the only place to park our pickup was between us and the folks next to us. This makes the "packed in" feeling even more pronounced. There are other sites for travelers at the top of a rather steep hill. I saw several campers up there, and the sites are roomier, but I wasn't sure I wanted to pull our 5th wheel up such a steep hill. Since our stay was only two nights I was okay with the tight quarters where we were. The campground has a nice big pool and several kids were enjoying it. My Verizon signal was great and I was able to get satellite TV by putting our tripod just outside our front door and raising it to its maximum height. Everyone I talked to in the campground, especially the staff, was friendly and helpful. I think this place is okay for travelers who want a brief stop or for those who want a seasonal spot to get out of the city. As a traveler it wouldn't be very high on my list as a place to spend anything beyond a night or two. - nazpaz

Price reflects ROD membership. Campground was very easy to find. There still had weekend activities (potluck, etc.) even late in the season. The pool was open but very cold. They had a playground and other outside activities. This is a standard "parking lot" style campground. However, they can manage big rigs; but only a few of the sites will work for large RVs. Very tight getting into site-but it was workable. It was nice they had a parking area for the truck and the jeep, so we didn't need to keep those on our site. Gravel roads through the campground. Sites are level. Each site had a picnic table and fire ring. Good Verizon coverage. Spotty DirecTV satellite. Nice little campground. I would stay here again; just make sure to understand campground size; but no hesitations otherwise. - GLPColorado

We were given a pull thru site that was so sloped we couldn't get level. Took us 25 minutes to avoid trees and rocks getting out of site. Clearance 6" at best. Do not try to take a big rig here. - Tembe

This is a rustic, adequate, quiet campground in a country setting that was perfect for a one-night stay while awaiting mechanical service. Camp hosts were most helpful and friendly in assisting us with a last minute reservation to address issue next day. It is a better fit for Class B & C campers. It is filled with seasonal guests in grass/gravel sites with a few sites available for transitory campers. Sites are grassy, not very level and some are very muddy due to recent rain. Full hook-up is available. There is a charge for WiFi. Nothing fancy here but lots a good will, friendliness, in a nice country setting. - Breezy2

First site which had standing water in it and was muddy had no power from 15A outlet. Checked nearby one and it was also out. Third site had power so moved there. Were just spending the night and mosquitoes were around so didn't venture about. No Wi-Fi at site. Was told it was available on porch of office but didn’t want the long walk or to put up with bugs so did without. No idea why they gave us only 15A electric as I noted the registration book showed lots of openings with 30A. Measured voltage and got 114v. Lots of seasonal but also a number of abandoned sites. Just in front of our site was a site that looked like someone just hooked up and pulled out leaving a damaged deck, sewer hose, wood and cement blocks around the site. This was not the only “abandoned” site I observed. Would not stay here again if I could find a more reasonable campground local to Worcester. Street address is 90 Manchaug Road in West Sutton, MA 01590. - Tireman9

Just needed place for overnight stop. Park appears to be still under construction with many areas with rough road and partially completed grading. Grass area was OK but sites were not level. Luckily we were mid week so many sites to choose from so we could move around to get to a level site. Rough gravel roads. Buildings still under construction. OK but rough unfinished look. Overpriced for condition of facilities. - Tireman9

Very rough roads entering sites. We had a grassy site and it was very soggy after rains. Site was pretty much level. Did not use facilities so unsure of them. Paid for internet usage and it was for nothing. Do not waste your money !! - Trucker 2

This campground needs a lot of help. At least the check-in was friendly and efficient. Interior roads are rough, signage is inadequate, and some sites have utility problems. Equipment and junk are scattered around the campground. Due to heavy rain, the grassy sites were somewhat boggy in spite of fairly good drainage so leveling was a bit challenging. Wi-Fi didn't work. If in the area again, I would try very hard to find another overnight campground. Sadly, the Brimfield area is still showing the effects of the 2011 tornado. - Scott & Nancy

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

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
