Stopped overnight. Sort of off the beaten path but this park seems mostly catering to seasonal campers. This was our last night on a week long swing thru VT, NH ME and this campground was the most expensive and the least attractive we encountered. Our site was a pull thru that was pretty crowned end to end so it was difficult to level unless we unhooked, the site was like sand and deep from the dry conditions. Had it been rainy it would have been a mud hole. Roads are easy to navigate and people standoffish. For an overnight stay, OK. For a longer period, not so much. - gcd28

Electricity was good, water pressure was good and wifi was good. The park has many amenities some are good and some are in bad or non-maintained shape. The general condition of the park in terrible, no gravel on roads or sites. Many long term sites and some are maintained and some are a complete mess. We were assigned a back-in first that was real tight and then moved to a pull thru. After moving, a heavy rain storm came in and the first site had 3 inches of water on it. - hsvjim

It didn't start well - we arrived at 4:00PM and our assigned site was still occupied. After we set up in a new site we asked about cable tv. It's satellite tv and it's a $50 cash deposit for the box, but the lady in the office waived it since I rarely carry cash anymore. The site was OK, not a pull-through since there was a big electrical box at the back end. Laundry was one washer and one dryer in an outside shed, we went to the town of Hinsdale instead. There is also a pool that we didn't use. This is mostly a seasonals campground with a few unshaded transient sites, and the seasonals act like they own it. During the week it was OK, but on Friday the weekend seasonals arrived with their ATV's and partying well after midnight. We actually turned our AC fan on just for some drowning background noise. Saturday was a repeat of Friday, maybe not as noisy but it ran just as late. We left at 9:00AM Sunday, but when I tried to drop off the satellite box there was no one in the office. A call to the "24 hour" number went to voicemail, so I just left the box inside the screen door. As a side, as we were packing up one of the full-time seasonals actually apologized for the noise and stated he was getting a bit tired of the weekenders also. - mbopp

Nothing to do. Was pretty rundown, overpriced and unsightly. Lots were very close and sunny. Site surface was dirt. Would not recommend it.
It has a gate that opens for anyone, but you need a code to get out? Most of the permanant trailers are run down covered in moss and mold. No cable tv unless you want cable tv to install it for $110.00. Police were in and out most nights. - Gypsy8

Park is in bad shape, old run down abandoned trailers. No cable, only 30 amp electric. Overpriced in my opinion. - traveler88

This is a great campground for seasonal camping. Lots of sites with improvements like porches, sheds and multiple golf carts. The moon rising up over the mountain reflected in the lake was beautiful. The showers needed updating -- they were pull chain to operate and the rubber mats could have benefited from a a bleaching. The camp owner was hot and cold; this might make some feel unwelcome. Looked like a good place to camp with a boat. - mrsgranett

We stayed here the last week in August and again in early October in a 30' travel trailer. We used our Passport America for a very reasonable $24.00 during the week. We stayed in pull through sites with full hookups. The drive in was easy. The pull through site was level and we did not unhook as this was a one-night stay. We had good phone signal at the campsite and the WIFI was excellent. We were not able to get any OTA TV channels. The showers and restrooms were very clean and the water was hot. The camp store was limited, but the ice cream and miniature golf was great. We will definitely stay here again when our travels take us to the northeast. - Capt Gerry

Stayed just one night on a return trip to Maine. We were impressed with the campground. Plenty of room in the site for travel trailer and tow vehicle. Very quiet and nice setting. Bathrooms were very clean. We did not use the pool but it looked very nice. There is an ice cream shop and a mini golf course also. Looked for some things to do in the area because we would return there. - S Tanguy

Small campground but very well maintained and the staff is very pleasant. The pool is very well kept and maintained as well as the central building that has the rest room and showers as well as arcade. Most of the sites are pull through, just over half of them are full hookup. Some of them have a bit of a hump between the sites which is inconvenient for chairs. The angle of the sun in the one we stayed at, A11, came in at a angle that made awning ineffective, so you might need a sunscreen. But most sites are well shaded. The staff is very pleasant and helpful. The cell service in area for Verizon was running about 2 bar and good to average signal throughput. Had no problems with hookups, and the cable provided had good quality signal. - David Ramsey

We stayed in the park for the month of July, and after having traveled across most of the country, I have to say this was one of the nicest parks we stayed in. The owner/manager was actively involved with making sure all guests were happy and that they had everything they needed to make for a pleasant stay. In a month we witnessed this many times. We would for sure stay there again. - vt3fan

Campground is under new ownership. Owners are very friendly and are always visible and accessible around the campground. It is being very well maintained. Our site was an end site and as such had a large "front yard" which we enjoyed. We enjoyed our stay here and will return if in the area. - Underlog

We will consider alternatives before staying here again. We stayed overnight based on the reviews on this site. All of these campers giving great reviews must not watch TV. The analog cable is awful and unpleasant to watch. The trees keep you from getting satillite, and we couldn't get any over the air channels. The campground is easy to find. The staff is pleasant. The campground is easy for a big rig to navigate. The site was long enough so that we could keep our toad attached. The utilities were at the rear of our site which is difficult. The water connection was with the other utilities, but had to be turned on on the other side of your RV. Odd. The Tengo wifi is just not worth the effort so we used our hotspot. As with most KOAs it is ovepriced. - FSUWizard

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 love this campground! It is in Swanzey, close to Keene, NH. The sites are very spacious. They have riverfront, full sun and shaded sites. In the summer, you will see plenty of families hanging in the river. The owners are very hospitable and have a lot of info on the area. They are always happy to recommend biking paths, hiking trails, other places to kayak and local restaurants. They are a wealth of knowledge. We have been several times and plan to return next year. We highly recommend this campground. - Donna_Tim

This is a good location for big rigs. Good access, clean. Laundry facilities located in the barn with the game room. Equipment was working well. Restrooms were clean. Chuck and Laura helpful with local recommendations. We were camped in a large open area. There is also a wooded area if that is your preference as well as tents sites along the river. DH was able to wash the coach and car. We would stay here again. The location is very peaceful. Negatives: there is no over the air TV access because of the Campground location. The pad where we were parked had some gravel. Because of the rain, the ground became soft and our jacks and tires sunk into the ground. More and thicker layer of gravel would be great. Our coach sustained dings when weed whacking was being done when stones were thrown up. Not good customer care. Thus the "satisfactory"rating for customer service. WiFi is present around the office/game room building.
Be sure to follow the directions to the Campground from the website. The Rand McNally directions send one down a road that leads to a cover d bridge and 3 ton maximum. - Char B

You need to get across the river from route 10 to get to this campground that lies at the end of Pine Road. Even our motorhome GPS (that knows our size and weight) tried to direct us over a covered bridge with 3 ton and 8-foot limits. The best bet is to follow the campground website's directions or to follow the small green campground directional signs that point the way to the bridge over the river. When we arrived, we found an extremely wide-open and spacious facility run by exceptionally friendly hosts. Our site was full-hookup 50-amp and all utilities worked well. There is no WIFI at the sites, although it is available near the office. About a half mile up the road from the campground is an entry to the Ashuelot River Rail Trail that provides a relatively smooth bicycle riding surface into the town of Keene four miles away. You can connect there to another rail trail if you are looking for more distance. There is a decent restaurant just north of the campground on route 10 and many other choices in Keene. - seeyajohn

Quiet park great for tenters or hybrid campers. Our 32ft 5th was too big for most of the roads. The only bathrooms we saw was an outhouse and only one dumpster aat the entrance. - cbshea02

The camper sites are wooded, but can be navigated with care. We had no trouble bringing in the 25' Outback and we are novices. Owners are friendly and accommodating; lake is beautiful in the fall and photographic opportunities abound. There are boat rentals and fishing, and swimming in the summer. Many sites have full hookups. The bathrooms with showers are at the camp store area, are clean and there is plenty of hot water. Our wooded site had full hookups, so nobody needed to use the outhouses that are sprinkled through the camping areas. They have stone fireplace rings at each site, and the camp permit dictates that fires be no more than knee height and be out before leaving them. It is a forested area, so care is required. We had a wonderful time. Site was rustic, clean and well supplied. Owners have created an excellent wooded camping experience. - SharonW.

We were looking for a weekend get away that was not too far to travel for us and a relative. We found Swanzey Lake Camping area thru an internet search. I could not find to many reviews but the web site looked OK and the lake area was inviting. We arrived on Thursday afternoon and the first impression of the campground was poor. The entrance to the campground had boat trailers parked all over the place, a disabled vehicle next to an old shed. The first appearance was a campground that was not kept up. After checking in we were given directions to our site. The roads in the campground were very narrow and rough, other campers had a difficult time navigation the turns. When we found our site we got out of the vehicle too look around. The site was a spot in the woods that had been filled with sandy fill and each time it rained our site (along with others turned to brown mud and the fill started to wash away. Trying to keep the sand out of the RV was a constant chore. The quiet hours were from 10:00 to about 8:00 am but they were not really enforced. This campground was mostly seasonals. As we walked around the campground we could often smell sewage, we could not determine where the smell was coming from. The web site states that they have a rec hall with games and a pool table, all there was is a porch with some games and a pool table that was in a tight area so it was difficult to use it. The only thing that was nice and kept up at this campground was the lake area. - wahooo

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

This is mainly a seasonal site campground with a few transient sites available. We were the only transients in the campground during our stay. Office staff was very friendly. Not much in the way of Verizon cell or hot spot available. The bathrooms are clean but dated. The worst part for the bathhouse was either the long walk around to the bathhouse (up hill but not as steep) or the steep short cut up the hill (by the dump station). People we met were friendly. Laundry was expensive but the machines worked well. Campsite was on grass with a picnic table and fire pit. One must travel about one mile on a good gravel road and then climb a steep (but short) hill up to the campground. We probably would not stay here again. - roadking

The campground is very quiet; the sites are large. Most of the park is made up of seasonals. The owner could not have been any nicer. We would definitely stay here again! - Texas Safari

This little gem is our favorite campground and go to place. It is very well maintained. Private sites (as much privacy as one can expect!). Very clean bathrooms and showers. Quiet. Wood and ice available on site. Our favorite site is #13 located next to camp hosts - though we may try 2, 4, or 5 next time. The sites in the upper loop are generally comparable. The sites in the field (lower) pick up a lot of road noise. Very open, no privacy. Bath/shower house is older in that section so worth the walk to the other for showers. We have camped at Molly Stark for years in everything from tent to VW Westafalia back to tent and now Roadtrek (22'). The parks never disappoints. - CDG

We stayed at this park a few months earlier, and enjoyed it so much that we headed back up with a couple of friends for Labor Day Weekend. They stayed on site #21 and set up two tents. We booked the adjacent site #23 for our travel trailer. Both sites were level and had full sun throughout the day which was a welcome source of warmth on a crisp September morning, but might not be so welcome in the heat of the summer. The other issue with these two sites is that they are at the northern end of the park property and within earshot of Route 9. Road noise was pretty constant throughout the day, but quieted down at night with the exception of the occasional tractor trailer engine-braking down the hill leading up to the park. The bath house at the northern end of the park is dated and appears to be original to the park's construction. Cold water is free, but you'll need to pack quarters if you want hot water. We opted to walk to the newer bath house in the center of the park that we had used on our previous stay. We will definitely stay at this park again, but would likely chose a site at the southern end of the park with more shade, newer bath house, and away from the road noise. - malsbury

Amazing little state park with a great staff and easy access to the Harriman Reservoir. We booked site #12. When the ranger that checked us in saw our 21' travel trailer he mentioned we might have a some difficulty backing into the site. He said if that was the case, just come back up to the station and he would move us to one of the larger sites at the front of the park.
With a couple of tries, and folded in mirrors, we were able to get into the site. The site was nice and level, with shade throughout the day. We hiked the Olga Trail up to the fire watch tower which was a nice 1-1/2 hour walk after dinner our first night. The majority of our time in the area was spent at the Harriman Reservoir, located just a few miles west of the park.
There is a single dump station by the central bathhouse, with separate spigots for potable and flush water. However, the campsite is small enough that we have not experienced a wait to fill or dump our tanks.
The bath house at this end of the park is at most a year or two old. Showers work great, and give you a reasonable amount of preset temperature water for each button press. - malsbury
