This park is very disappointing. The campers beach was cluttered with sea weed and not being taken care of. There are two large mud holes that you have to walk thru to get to the campers beach. Camp sites aren't being raked as they should. Water at the camp ground was spotty and so it was hit or miss if you wanted water. Water was shut off without warning as I was taking a shower, half way thru, and was told I could go rinse off in the lake. There were pot-o-potties through out the camp ground. We were never told about the water issues. Trash dumpster was over flowing. All the staff do is drive around in their buggies. About all the staff do is clean the restrooms. Two sinks in the restroom next to site 166 were out of order. This place is so over grown you can't tell where the trails or paths are. NH needs to be putting some effort into this camp ground because people are not coming back. Look at your numbers. I for one might not be back. Very poor excuse of a campground. - pilots48

Price includes reservation fees. Sites vary, but most are big and spacious and deep. Sites are mainly dirt, but roads are all paved. No hookups, but water through out as well as permanent rest room buildings which were clean. Dump station available. Main shower building when you come in with parking and trash and recycling dumpsters are there as well. Nice swimming lake, but was closed during visit because of bacteria from rain they have been getting. Has boat ramp and nice new playground by picnic area. Campground has own swim beach. Sprint cell was spotty. Firewood was $6 for about 6 pieces. Store had limited supplies and souvenirs. They also had ranger programs. Will definitely come back again. - acenorm

This park is located in the southwest part of New Hampshire and as most of the state parks in New England will close on Columbus Day. There were only a few loops open and we were the only ones in our loop on a Sunday night. I think we might have been the only ones in the park but there were quite a few campers during the weekend checking out when we got here. No reservations needed during this time of year. There are no hookups but water spigots are located in each loop as well as bathhouses. Showers are located near the ranger station at the entrance as well as a recycling dumpster. There is a dump station. This park of 400 acres has huge sites and ours looked out through the trees in the distance over a small cliff towards Beaver Pond and Otter Lake. There are hiking trails throughout the park going by ponds, bogs, forest and Otter Lake which is undeveloped except for a public beach and a campers beach. Nice lake! In season there is a small park store but if you come during the week like we did you take a registration form, find a site and return to put it in a slot with your fee and information. The night we were there was the Supermoon Eclipse and even through there were trees we had a great view of it from our site and RV. The beach is OK, but the water is nice and clear and one can kayak from the beach. Nice park with bike riding, boating, fire rings, fishing, horseshoes, playground, restrooms, showers, and swimming.
This is a beautiful part of New Hampshire and it is in driving distance of Franklin Pierce University and some other small colleges that are located in this region. Cathedral of the Pines is also a short road trip away. This was a one-nighter for us but if we were in the area we would stop again to camp here. - gsnakehill

We've stayed several times at Woodmore. Quiet campground. Sites have plenty of trees so you don't feel so open to your neighbor. Cell phone service good and they have cable. Large play area for the kids. Owners and staff are great! - Lover of Cairns

This was the first time we have stayed at Woodmore. The website gives you the idea that they are strict, and very rule oriented. While I understand there have to be rules, I don't care for very strict parks. Rather, we should all govern ourselves respectfully without having the management getting involved. That being said, we had no issues with this park at all! The staff was great, we met both of the owners (Husband & Wife, great folks). They were curious and friendly. They do adhere strictly to the site occupant limits, and we had to rent a second site to accommodate the one adult (5th adult) that we were over the limit by. The site we had was at the end of the "T" section. They seem to section off the seasonal from the traditional campers (good idea IMO). The sites varied greatly in terms of size. Some sites were quite small, but ours was a perfect size for our HTT. The amenities were all in great condition, and well maintained! The Bocci court was the best we've seen in 2 Summers, we played for hours!! They have paddle/row boats & cohoes for rent. We rented 3 boats and all went for a nice paddle around the lake, let the kiddos explore the tiny island right offshore (told them it was a treasure island, we couldn't wipe the smile off their faces!!). The bathrooms & showers were nice & clean. Showers are extra large & roomy. My wife had an issue with the hot water in the showers on the first morning. We spoke to the owners and they PROMPTLY resolved the issue. This was a great CG. Family oriented, friendly ownership & staff, great facilities & amenities. We will be back in 2015 for sure!! As a note: I only gave them an 8 for a couple of reasons. 1)The majority of the sites were quite small. When we return, it will be contingent on getting the same site we did this time. There were no other sites that appealed to us (too small, not enough separation etc.). 2)The firewood they sell was all pine. It was a nice service, and the price was good ($7 for a barrel of it, and they bring it right to your site). But it wasn't difficult to go through 3+ buckets a day for a decent fire (we like having nice fires). - BigNuge

Came for a weekend to get away, but would not stay here again. On the plus side, might fit you if you have a lot kids and a smaller rig. On the negative, nothing is paved (roads or campsites) so whenever it rains the place is a mud pool. Sites are generally smaller and packed together with lots of trees. No Wi-Fi. Very noisy on Saturday as they had open air karaoke with the sound system so loud that my RV shook. - snolan

A small campground in a quiet area with a beautiful pool with kids water slides. Transient sites were smallish and close together. Staff/owners and the seasonal campers were all very nice, we enjoyed the weekend here. Other than the pool, there isn't much else going on. They have an arcade in an old barn, and there is a hiking trail. There is a put-in for a kayak, but it was quite a hike to get to it. The campground was clean and nicely maintained. We would return with the kids to use the pool. - Mavenheath

Our first time here and I had read about the great donuts and the great owners. Well, on check-in I was told donuts are only available on holidays, which was disappointing, and I felt the owners were not that nice about the fact I asked about them. Anyway, we headed to our site which was easy to get into but with the length of our trailer I could not get it level. The site was on a hill and I backed up as far as I could go and lowered the front jack as far as it would go and we were still a bit unlevel. Anyway, all this aside, the place grew on me. After set up and dinner I went back to the office to check the pool times as they are not posted and was told 9:00, which was great. We had the older pool to ourselves so to cool off as everyone else was at the beautiful newer pool. Took a nice walk the next day and it is a real nice place. WiFi was a little slow and you need a password which I did not get. I guess it is written on the book they give you but mine was blank. Anyhow, since we were in the mountains and thunder storms started at 2, we were "lucky" and the mountains held the storms overhead for over 10 hours. Parts of the campground did flood, we went out to dinner rather than standing in puddles to cook. We plan to camp here again and hope that it is as enjoyable as the good parts of this weekend. - Happy Camper X2

Super friendly owners
Amazing pool and splash zone
Freshly made donuts on Saturday morning
Camp Store with DVD rentals
FHU with 50amp
Extremely clean bathrooms
Very nice seasonal campers
Seasonal Park and seasonals enjoyed watching us park our 45ft motorcoach on the first try! Everyone knows everyone so as a transient, you feel like an outsider.
Roads are dirt and it rained so super muddy
30 minutes from a town... so bring groceries if you are getting in late! - RVThatFamily

The park caters to seasonal campers, but has an open field for transient RVs, the "200's." The sites are somewhat cramped in the 200's and getting a 32ft TT backed into some of the spots can be challenging. They have a handful of pull throughs.
A neighbor RV did have problems with the park 50 Amp service, he had to use a dongle to utilize just half of his 50.
The best part of the campground is the pools. The kids had a great time in the pools. Sunday morning we ate in the campground restaurant, which was decent. - johnbaker

Nice environment, clean restroom/showers, well stocked camp store. Lots of seasonals. Transient site was in tightly packed area. Our site had lots of exposed roots. Cable consisted of 12 channels and was often fuzzy. Wi-Fi for a fee; did not use. Pools were nice. Game room was lacking. Adult rec building becomes breakfast restaurant on weekend and food is good (and reasonable). Single bar on AT&T and Verizon cell service. Overall good weekend experience. We would return. - Bigdave2165

This was the first time staying at Friendly Beaver. The facilities are great, tons for kids to do, dinners, big tractor drawn wagon rides, antique firetruck rides, horses & goats....the list goes on. The bathrooms were all clean & relatively easy to get to. The not so great was the "200 section" we stayed in. It is a large oval camping area just packed with sites. The back-in sites (along the outside) are tight. I have a 23' RV with one slide-out. I was lucky to not have any adjoining neighbors during the weekend, otherwise I would have been staring at their rig (or they at mine). I mean, with my slide-out extended, my awning touched the next site when it was out. I practically didn't fit. We asked about a more private/wooded site and was told those are mostly reserved for "monthly/Seasonal" folks. There are a huge amount of "full timers". They say they are strict with speed limits, but not with the brigades of golf carts. Those people flew around like they owned the place. A bit of a pun because I had a feeling a large amount of family/family friends actually do stay there. All in all it was a nice place. Lots for kids to do, 4 pools, one of which is an indoor heated pool. If we could camp in a nice wooded site we would go back. - BigNuge

Park was rustic with some of the friendliest staff we have ever encountered. Pool was clean roads are rough. Nothing fancy but very nice. Wi fi is very sporadic and unreliable. The cost of $40 per night is reasonable. However the $5 per night surcharge for each pet is not. Though we had a good time at the campground we will not be returning because of the surcharge. - Ollie2

Rustic and old. Only stayed 1 night but hard to keep inside of camper clean. No grass, all sandy. Pool looked nice but did not use. Interior roads very tight. - Bjb1775

This is an older park with very sharp turns and low hanging branches. The hook ups at our site were difficult to access, not centrally located and need to use extra hose. We feel this park was too expensive. the owner was on site and very helpful, probably the highlight of the park. - Al and Anne-Marie

The Wagon Wheel campground used to be a nice place to camp at. Now most of the camp sites are horse stables. The prices for a night stay have jumped in price from $24.00 a night to $34.00 per night of which is a rip off. If you want bundles of wood the prices jumped from $5.00 a bundle now $7.00 a bundle of not cured wood. The grounds and camp lots are looking not there best. Grass is tall areas are over grown. The playground area looks like something in a horror movie, old rusty and rundown. The swimming pool is not in much better shape old and run down and looks like a home backyard inground pool. It can be very noisy at times staying here as guests do not know how to respect other people with blasting radios and drinking heavy alcohol. Fire pits are always filled with trash and debris of which you will need to clean if you want a fire. The owners charge $15.00 per night if you have a lot with electricity of which is ridiculous. The owners seem to be running the camp grounds more as a horse stable now rather camp grounds and are lacking in maintenance on the camp sites and property. I won't be returning anymore to this camp ground as I have been turned off by the owners charging the over priced fees they are now charging. I feel they are purposely charging these fees to keep the campers out and horse people in ...... It is sad because this USED to be a nice place to camp at. Do yourself the favor and go elsewhere..... There are many other places much better!

Definitely a seasonal camper park. Pool was clean, bathrooms clean, but obvious most folks are here all the time and they like to police the "short-timers." Take our advice and get the tokens to get in and out of the campground as no one is usually around to assist with the gate. Camp store is barely stocked with anything. It is very close to Erving State park. No cell service. 20 minutes to the nearest store or anything. Glad we only stayed here one night. - mskalar

This campground is in the rebuilding stages as the current owners has owned it for a year and a half. Talking with some of the seasonals, the owners are making it a much nicer place than what it was. There were a lot of kids for my kids to play with. The playground was easily viewable from our site so that we could keep an eye on them. It was a slow weekend and we got one of their best sites (#S10). The pool was nice and there are strict rules on it's use. Tent sites looked nice under the pine trees. I would go here again. - B. P.

Planned to stay here for a weekend while visiting friends in Nashua, but ended up extending a day. A lot of the sites are seasonal/permanent campers, but all are very well maintained. W/S/E were all in excellent condition and did not require any extra hoses or cable. Sewer pipe was a bit high. Asphalt surface was in good shape, level, solid. We had a pull through this time. Very nice stream and pond, and plenty of trees around the outside. The free Wi-Fi was excellent. Great coverage, strong signal, and I never experienced it slowing down. We really enjoyed it here last year, and this year everything was even nicer. I would certainly stay here again. - BounderPounder

Overall our stay was good. The staff was friendly and stopped to talk to us regularly. As others have mentioned the site we had was roomy. In my opinion, big rigs (40+ feet) might have an issue negotiating the interior roads. The free Wi-Fi was best in the early morning hours (but not great), once the campground filled up, internet access was limited most of the time, and sometimes not useable. The cable TV was very poor, luckily our satellite connection was good. Prior to staying at this campground, we never had an issue with our Surge Guard, but one phase at this campground was constantly reading 130 vac and occasionally it would trip. Now that we've moved to another state and campground, we're not having any issues with it tripping. - gMw

Stayed 3 nights. Space was small and tight to get in and out. Campground mostly seasonal campers that appeared to have been in place for years. Was placed next to a seasonal that appeared to have been in the space for many years. Fire ring was unusable as not cleaned out from last camper. Staff was friendly and accommodating. Believe it was overpriced for the amenities and spaces. Would not stay again. Roads in area VERY difficult with most under repair. - Jimbeau

Oxbow Campground is all about families, with a range of activities available & planned weekend events. About 20% of the sites are designated for short term (3 days or less); the rest are seasonal. Campers leave their RVs set up & return on the weekends. Golf carts were commonplace, as the campground is fairly spread out.
The weekend we were here, passing through one night on the way north, there was a Halloween celebration (in August) with full blown decorations, the kids in costumes, hayrides, a DJ. This made for quite a lively & noisy campground. The kids, including the teenagers, seemed pretty happy, and nary a cell phone in sight (no service!!).
Our site (90) was nearer to the front, and so we had a lot of traffic around us, coming & going: cars, golf carts, pedestrians, Halloween celebrators, maintenance workers, people walking dogs, etc.
We had low hanging branches on our site that looked likely to damage our motorhome on the way out of the pull-through. The owner was very responsive to our request & immediately took them down.
There are tight turns, some large rocks on the edges of the driveways & lots of branches throughout the park.
The wifi is limited to the area in and around the office. - RockyMountainMama

The campground was crowded, but it didn't feel like it. We camped over part of Memorial Day. Because of the holiday we weren't able to get it for the whole weekend - only Sunday and Monday nights. However, as most people left on Monday we were able to move to a location with a view of the lake. There are no hookups, only dry camping. They do have an $8 handling fee. The setting is peaceful and the sites are spacious. There is some noise from traffic, but it's not overwhelming. - RonMill

Another year, another review. We just love going camping here and the kids had a great time. My younger brother also loved this state park with canoeing, bike riding, and the trails. We always look forward to going again next year. We will definitely be back. - B. P. Donelan

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
