Very small State Campground with "real" outhouses except for a recently built shower/bathroom near our site #15. The kids enjoyed the fresh air and the swim area which is also a day use facility. The lake is also good for fishing and there is a boat ramp. The staff was very friendly. My youngest saw a wild animal in a tree which ended up being a porcupine. The sites are small but are very well spaced apart. We usually camp in a travel trailer but borrowed my brother's pop-up for this trip. We plan on returning for a weekend as long as we can get close to the bathroom facility. - B. P. Donelan

Entrance road is dirt and rough. Pool is green. Office is under repair and not usable. Grass needed mowing. Paid extra for 50 amp but due to weak leg, had to swap to 30 amp which was also weak (105 volts). Kept tripping breaker. Site had gravel at one time but was way too narrow. Found a couple of boards left by previous camper to drive up on to keep from settling too deep and to level us on the side that dropped off the 'site'. We followed the directions to pull into our site and hookups were on door side. Had to run water hose and electric cable under the rig. I guess that was a good thing as that put the power source right outside our door and convenient for constantly resetting the breaker throughout our stay. It rained and we were sitting in a water hole. Locked in the 4 wheel drive to pull our 5th wheel out of the mud for departure. I will not stay here again. I can't imagine anyone paying over $40 to stay here for w/e. I my opinion, even the PA rate was too high. - Himie

After turning into the driveway to enter the campground I was confronted by a NARROW concrete bridge. My MH is 46K pounds. Do you proceed? I did. We pulled up to the office building and my first impression was this place is a mess, with garbage piled up behind the building. We were here for just a stop for the night. This place is a stopover. if you plan on staying around the area and you have a family, keep looking. This place is fine for a stopover. We are fully self contained so we toughed it out; it was fine for our purpose. All the sites seem to be in a grass field. - Scooter & Crew

We stayed here overnight on our way to Acadia NP in order to visit the Yankee Candle Co. in S. Deerfield. The facilities were tired. We used the toilets, but not the showers. The office facility had a lounge area, but it wasn't at all inviting, and there were no supplies available for sale, as you might expect to find. The staff member we talked with had not been alerted to our reservation, but was friendly and accommodating. Our site was flat and easily accessible in an open field. There were quite a few seasonal sites tucked back in the woods. I would consider stopping here for a day, or so, to visit the local attractions, but only out of convenience. - Alhub

This was an over night stay. Not crowded, but looked like mostly seasonal folks. We found a satisfactory site on a grassy meadow. Had E/W - the only con I have about the CG was the bath house was a hike up a small grade. The RR/showers were clean, but a bit dated. The RR had hooks in the shower stalls and mats/benches in the showers. A plus! We arrived after hours, but doing a drive around looking for a site, the night manager helped us get settled. He was friendly/helpful. - Dennis D

This was a nice park with grass sites. Water and electric only but the do have a pump out service for $4.00 which was nice to have during our 5 day stay. There is also a dump station on the way out. There was some highway noise but wasn't enough to deter us. WiFi was excellent at our spot even on the weekend when the park got more active. Our GPS did not flag us on an 11 foot clearance on River Street which is the road that the park is on. Luckily I missed the turn and went into town and turned on Cross Street which avoided the low clearance. - RJ56

Needed a last minute place for columbus holiday, and they had room. Water and electric, they do provide a service to dump for you 4.00. They have a dump station at the exit road. We were escorted to our site and told where to exactly set up in an open field. This meaning, follow the cart and he stops where he wants you and no moving to adjust. A first for us, a little confusing as we were not told how this works. It turned out ok. Lots of activities for the 3 day weekend, very fun. I would return again and found every one to be very friendly. Majority of the park was seasonal, but not at all messy and over filled with stuff in their yards. No antenna coverage, no cable tv and ok att coverage. Large library of dvds and books at the office, games and other things to borrow and exchange. Many good places to eat with in 10 min, and a lovely grocery store with great prices. When you are in the grass open area, you do not get a picnic table or fire ring. You share a post with your hook ups and water with 4 sites. So be sure to have a long water hose. A creek runs on one side of the campground. - hiker13

We only stayed here to visit a friend in the area. This was it for campgrounds with full hookups. The sites are grass/dirt, when it rains, the area is flooded. The roads are not in good shape, some pot holes need to be filled. Yhey are very kid friendly with lots for them todo, we don't have kids, so it came across as noisy to us. The campground is about 90% seasinal trailers, some look like they have been there for years. It's ok for one night, but we were over it after 3 nites. - TBWard

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

Odd, variable experience. When making reservation, the campground demanded full payment in advance but offered "cancellation insurance" for a charge. We declined. They charged a higher rate than website suggested and stated that their site also stated they could change rates without notice. However, as we were driving there, we had a pleasant phone call from the office saying a nicer site had opened and we would be welcome to it. Of course we accepted. On arrival, an employee led us to our site. Many sites were seasonal with folks in for a week or weekend. This seems common in the northeast. The "resort" in the title must refer to the golf course next door as there were not amenities common at resorts. Neither of the pools had water. Roads were steep and rutted. Our site was large with trees and bushes around. Water and electric were good. Sewer hookup was high with no good way to hold our hose in. The two public bath houses were each a long or longer way from our site. In one, only one of three showers worked. The shower curtains were carefully cut short allowing water out at the bottom and in some showers out the sides as well. Dressing and undressing were public. The only dumpster was driving distance from most sites, up the first steep hill, near the entry gate. Sites vary widely within loops and loop to loop. It would be hard to know what you're getting without going there. - PeterCC

Memorial day weekend, sunshine and family...sounds like a great time. Good time with the family and that was it. Checked in upon arrival and was handed a car pass for windshield. No map given nor were there directions given to our site. After a self-guided tour of the place looking for our site we had a seasonal camper help us find it. Hook-ups were difficult to reach with our connections. Finally connected and ready to explore only to find out the 2 swimming pools on the grounds were empty and not available. Restroom facilities (the only ones within a 5 minute walk) were far from sanitary and turns out 1 working toilet. Other 2 toilets weren't flushing. Notified the office and they would get someone on it. All weekend there were problems with the toilets and upon departure none were working. Many campers a re seasonal and quiet time is 11-8 am, that was not enforced as neighboring campers were up till 2 am playing a game and swearing and laughing. Very dissatisfied with this campground and will not return. - Khfamily

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

Great little state park, known locally as the Goshen Ocean. When we arrived with our travel trailer I headed to several of the potable water stations located around the campsite loops. They were all very low pressure, timed push button, faucets that would be fine for filling a water canteen or jug, but not our fresh water holding tank. I decided to head to the dump-station hoping there was a potable spigot we could use. After looking at the campsite map, I didn't see a dump station. I headed out to the check-in station and asked the ranger. She informed me that their dump facility was about two miles away, next to the park headquarters office and maintenance yard. We headed over there, and quickly filled our tanks without issue from a dedicated potable water station adjacent to the dump station.
The restrooms and shower nearest to our site were fine. Clean, but aging.
While there, we took several hikes around the pond area, swam in the campers-only beach (which is located across the pond from the more crowded public access beach), and attended several of the children's workshops hosted at the Nature Center located within the park. - malsbury

We stayed here over Memorial Day weekend, and the campground was pretty full. Even so, it was nice and quiet. The facilities were clean, and the shower was very nice. We hiked some of the trails, and went down to the beach to check it out. Very nice.
This is the type of campground we like and we'll definitely be back.
The only gripe I had is that they had the fans in the bath house on high constantly, and it was freezing cold in there. I asked at the gate, and was told that it was to keep the floors dry. They did turn them off, but just for the rest of the day.
We'd definitely return.
Just one note, the dump station is about a mile from the campground at the park headquarters. Just ask at the gate for directions. - 2beagles

This year we canoed the lower lake and made it to the spill way where the kids enjoyed walking down the slanted concrete hill. The showers had awesome water pressure and plenty of hot water. We really enjoy this campground and look forward to it every year. I did ask about the location of the dump station and was given directions, as it was about 3/4 of a mile away from the campground. There is a general store off of the campground where you can purchase forgotten supplies. We will be going back next year. - B. P. Donelan

Water and electric only, no sewer, but convenient dump station as you leave. Make sure you use the Westover blvd gate.... the main gate will turn you away. Follow directions from Westover gate and you will find it with no problems. Oddly sandwiched between some sort of beverage distribution warehouse, members' club and rec rental. Sites are level and back in. Not a highly-cared for camp, much overgrown grass and weeds. Firepits not emptied. Picnic tables are hit or miss. Office staff was kind and efficient. A safe, level, affordable place to stay. - DebbieT in Alabama

Very nice military campground. Quiet area with wide sites and clean showers and clean FHU's. Office staff very helpful with local attractions and base information. Call ahead as they do not take reservations. - boomerlee

This is a first come first served military campground. It is not a great campground either. Parking pads are concrete but entrance to site is just dirt, rocks and dead grass. Fire ring was overgrown with weeds and full of trash. Picnic table was useable. Bathhouse is strange especially the shower area. There is a big room in both men and women's restrooms. There is only a long bench for all three showers to use and absolutely no privacy before or after stepping into/out of the shower. The room is quite large and it seems that some sort of privacy could be arranged. The water does not taste great but the utilities (no sewer) worked fine. Verizon cell and hot spot worked well. The campground is not easy to find and we got an unfriendly feeling from the gate guard to the campground staff. There are several commercial business near the campground that were busy through most of the night. This is not up to the usual standards of most military campgrounds. We would not stay here again. - roadking

We had a great Father's Day weekend here at this campground. My youngest son loved trying to catch the frogs and tad poles at the pond. Water was a little cool, but it has been pretty rainy. Bathroom was clean, and showers had plenty of hot water. There is a dish washing station that makes dry camping much better. We will go back again. - B. P. Donelan

The site that we had was awesome. It was right near the bathroom and still was very private. We all enjoyed the swimming in the small pond. My children also liked the parking lot for the restroom for riding scooters and skateboards around. The icecream man drove through the campground so we were able to get a special treat. I would like to go camping here again and maybe try renting one of the yurts. - B. P. Donelan

The only reason I didn't give it a "10" is because it's not an "RV" park. This place is a little gem hidden away in north-central Mass. The sites are well-shaded but don't allow room for more than about 20' of trailer. It's a great place for popups, tents or small (<20') rigs. The staff is very friendly and the nature interpreter does an outstanding job with her programs. The campground was very quiet on weeknights and still quiet on weekends. We'll definitely be back in our small hybrid. - rudeman

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
