Nice quiet campground. A bit out of the way. Roads are "ok" but go slow. If following a GPS, more than likely you will be directed right through the middle of Worcester, MA. Find a different way as it took us 45-50 minutes to travel through town. Good pool. Pay for cable and WiFi. Both were good. Spaces sites, not too close to others. 50 and 30 amp available along with water and sewer. Most sites are shaded but a few have no shade. Limited supplies at the office. Visit the Worcester Art Museum--worth the time. By the way, town is pronounced "Worster". Why--have no idea. - Jdon

Nice place on pretty grounds. I love that they are very dog friendly and my kids have lots of other kids to play with. We were located in the quiet Juniper Circle with a good amount of seasonal campers. They are very friendly and gave us an invite to join them around their campfire. Our hookups were a little far from the ideal location and we missed our water hose by about 5'. They did not have any left in the store and the girl asked if anyone told me about it when booking. When I told her I didn't she never questioned and said they had an extra one we could borrow. We are in an RV so I can't vouch for the bath house but we would definitely come back. The only thing I would add for that "10" overall is something like a bounce pillow or something more than just the playground for the kids. - Wristonwheeler

This is not a resort. Very run down after you pass the asphalt road in it turns int hilly gravel and dirt roads that are terrible in the rain. The site we were allocated was occupied and the alternative could just barely fit. sewer was uphill and difficult to use. No tv service and no wifi available. - flexitdriver

This is one of the nicest campgrounds that I have ever stayed in. The location is beautiful and the grounds are very well maintained. Staff is constantly driving around in golf carts, picking up trash, and making sure that everything is looking good. The showers were beautifully tiled, nice and warm, good pressure. We locked ourselves out and a staff member came right over and helped us get into our trailer. I watched as this same staff member assisted a family with a large 5th wheel get into a tight spot. Yes, the campground does charge for some activities and extras, but the charges are all very reasonable. Yes, the campground does enforce the rules, but this helps to keep everything nice and enjoyable. Some sites did look like they would be a little tight to get into, but after watching the staff assist with the 5th wheel, I would assume they would help others as well. Some sites were not tight at all. There were a good amount of seasonal sites. However, all of the seasonal sites were beautifully maintained and the folks were very friendly. I cannot say enough good things about this campground and cannot wait to go back. - JDubb

This is a great campground on lake Dean. Great activities for kids. Very dog friendly. Great clean lake. Clean modular bathrooms and showers. The only reason you wouldn't like this place is if you don't like lots of kids having a good time. - Traveltrove

Stayed for a weekend with our 2 grandaughters and 2 of their friends. Arrived and check in was completed at the gate, we never had to leave the MH. We were given a golf cart escort without asking, who took what appeared to be the 'long' way to the site, but actually took us the way that put us in the best position to back in. Staff and other campers were very friendly. It was a relaxed feeling right from the beginning. We were there for 'science' weekend, which was great for the kids (6,6,8 & 9). They created volcano's, made play doh, made slime and made some jars with paint & glitter. There was no charge for any of the experiments - which was great. They also each made a friend at the 'stuff a bear' event, which was an extra charge. I have to say that the staff - which included several young kids - was outstanding. They were very polite, paid a lot of attention to each of the kids, and were patient with even the youngest kids. I would absolutely go back to this campground. - rmbmrm

I was with a group of four families that camped here Memorial Day weekend, 2009. This facility appears to be entirely run by an older couple who are in over their heads. The campground itself is nice enough, but the infrastructure is crumbling around them. Our first problem was with the pressure relief valve on the water faucet. It leaked like a sieve on my site and an adjoining one, and when I reported it, the solution was to hook up a “Y” connection with another site that didn’t have a problem. Good thing the neighbor was accommodating! The next problem was with the power. One in our party has a 36 foot Class A motorhome and their site had only 15 amp service! The solution was to again swap with someone who had a 30 amp connection. We were on their safari field and there were hoses and cords running all over the place. The roads in the campground were in deplorable shape with deep ruts and washouts, so you had to move extremely slow in order not to bottom out your rig or tow vehicle. The area near the dumping station was extremely bad, where we actually backed up and turned around our units, rather than having to traverse the affected area. We had a minor problem with our billing because a child over 5 who was supposed to be with us when we booked the reservation wasn’t, so we had $12 coming back to us. Asking for our refund seemed to be an imposition, and the owner was indignant that one of our party couldn’t make it because of a medical condition and wanted to know how she was going to get the balance owed! On the plus side, they had activities like cards, bingo and a DJ, as well as horseshoes and bocci, although the latter two I think were mostly pick up games with a group that appeared to know each other. The hayride advertised in their flyer never materialized and the pool looked like it was not quite ready for prime time with algaecide foam floating on the top. A point of interest is that they actually have the remnants of an old sawmill within their office/store/game room complex. Also a plus is that their rates were a very reasonable $36 a night for a holiday weekend. So overall I’d say that we probably won’t return due to the poor condition of the facilities and the attitude of the two people we had to deal with, who I assume are the owners. The overall attitude can be described as grumpy. If what I have described would not be concerns to you, then this place can be considered a good value. - grumpah

This campground has large sites; however, restroom and laundry are treble and seldom functional. Employees act like watchdogs treat campers terrible. You can expect to go to the office every day to beg for icons to get through the gate to your camper if you're lucky enough to be going in when the office is open.Don't expect to be treated as a customer. Customers are treated more like bothersome beggars. - camper36687

I was the only one there and there is a reason. Run down, restroom a 10 minute walk away. Owners nice enough but not the brightest bulb on the tree. If you like solitude and a depressing atmosphere this is the place. They do have a lot of seasonals so a summer visit might be brighter. - burt

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

This campground has a lot that would appeal to kids. The pool I used is very basic but was clean. Many seasonal campers. - Lane Wise

This was our maiden voyage with a travel trailer that we just got brand new. Everything should have gone fine. We hook up on a Friday night with kids and dogs in tow, and no electricity (us, not the site). After my husband went round and round checking things and I made every phone call I could think to make we almost thought about going home. The gentleman at the desk up front came down when he heard we were having trouble. He went through it all again with my husband and about 20 min later we had power!!! Turned out there was faulty wiring inside the trailer. Amazingly nice people here. - Wristonwheeler

This is a huge family owned RV park that is at least 90% seasonal. If you are a short time stay, you will be in the center section of the area referred to as "Safari Field." The center section is for us and the outsides are seasonal campers. No so unusual for this area of the country.
The access was paved and or gravel. The back-in sites in Safari Field are very spacious from side-to-side with full hookup and cable TV. This is an open with grass and gravel sites and some nicely spaced trees. You won't have a problem with using your satellite. We were going to hook up to cable but found our connection to be quite corroded and didn't bother trying to get it repaired.
We arrived on the day the park officially closed for the season and they allowed us to stay for a full week. We filled up the tanks with water just in case we had a freeze.
The park is old but beautiful if you like nature, trees, birds, etc. Nice and quiet while we were here. The fall colors were fantastic. - Moe and Flo are on the go

Not clean or comfortable! The only positives are the clean bathrooms & nice size sites, awning to awning. The pool is small pool and the swimming pond is murky & green. Owner came to site one day, 6:00/7:00pm to say someone complained about my sister's dog not being on a leash (he was on an electric fence), and barking excessively. He said, "People live here and have to sleep and work in the morning." Who was sleeping at that hour? Owner wouldn't listen when we explained the electric fence. He said the dog could lunge after someone. They can do that on a rope too! Owner wouldn't listen when we tried to explain that also, and that my sister's dog would bark more on a rope and both our dogs would get tangled, making them both bark more. When I told Owner we also had a dog and whoever complained wasn't just hearing one dog, he said, "So you're telling me YOUR dog is the one barking excessively?" I said, "No, between the two dogs there is a normal amount of barking." As this was taking place, he approached my sister, which made her dog bark. The owner said, "See it's barking now." We pointed out that he was just doing what any dog would do, trying to protect its owner/home. I said I heard other dogs barking excessively and next time I'd complain. He said do that, and left. The next night at midnight I heard fireworks or a gun being fired. I didn't call the emergency number because I fell back to sleep and forgot about it. There were other things that made the campground unclean and uncomfortable. Excessive flies got inside campers and were unbearable. If they mowed before people came to a site, instead of WHILE they were there, it would have helped with the insects. The other unpleasant experience was finding dog poop smeared on the underside of my rug when we packed to leave. This edge of the rug was near our camper, out of our dogs' range, so it was there when we set up camp. I'm thankful we didn't step in it and drag it into the camper. We will never go here again, nor do we recommend it. - A97BlueAngel

As you already know, campgrounds are few and far between in this part of the state, since we have family in the area we stay here at least once each year. Follow their directions carefully, roads are narrow and steep but you will be fine. They are always friendly and will give you an escort, roads are dirt and a bit tight but nothing that can't be handled. Our sites have always been plenty big and fairly level. Mostly seasonal and on weekends lots of kids, but family is what camping is all about. If you are in this area and you need a place to stay they would be a good choice, we travel a 44 foot motorhome. - DRL1950

Our end site #66 was beautiful and spacious. We really enjoyed the setting. Lots of seasonal sites (seemed like more seasonal than short-term sites) but still a very lovely CG. They escort you to the site upon arrival, and we always appreciate that. Not the easiest CG to access from the highway, but the directions they provide on their website are excellent--do not use directions from your GPS; you'll end up on some tight, steep roads. The interior roads could be graded better. Our campsite was semi-wooded, private, pull-through with full hookups and a lovely firepit. No cable but basic TV from our antenna was fine. Wifi was weak. - Smashcamp

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

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

PS Staff are great and the activities were great last year !!! Looking forward to 2016 season !!! - Mike Bailey

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

This is great little campground. The owners are awesome and very friendly. Park is well manicured and clean. Not a ton of things to do but they make a very good effort to make the weekends interesting with events and games. Lots of hiking trails all over and not far from the Town of Sturbridge. Nice place to relax and chill. Quiet hours very well observed as the campground seemed to go to bed around 9:00 pm. Try to avoid Dean Hill Road as your route as it's very steep and curvy. Take East Hill Road instead, it may add 2 miles to your trip but a much better ride. Gray water only but dump station available on exit. We will go back next year. - Thomas Beau

We stayed in the overflow parking area. I never walked around in the park itself. The road in has many turns and we wondered what would happen if another MH was coming from the other direction, very narrow in places. We had this very large field all to ourselves which we liked. We stayed an extra day because one of the pups got sick and had to take it to a vet. Many families there. The two pools and basketball court were close to us. - Sunnie-Wheelhouse

The park is located in the forest off the beaten path. The highway to the park is narrow, so drive slow. The staff is so helpful and are the nicest people! We liked them all. They also take you to your camp site and assist with parking your RV after registration. It is quiet park, and very nice and clean. We had site O11, which was an excellent site with 30 AMP, water, and a grey sewer. We had a brick fireplace in a raised seating area for our campfire. There was small site lights too on posts. They have a dump station for your black tank. We relaxed and enjoyed our stay here. They have a store, pool, and activities for the kids. The laundry room was clean and inexpensive for wash and dry. There are electronic games, pool table, tv, and internet next to the laundry room. The only ding was the tree sap that got on our truck from the pines. Use the Gojo without the grit to remove it from your vehicles. We enjoyed our stay here, and we would definitely return if in the area again! - Lindy White
