Stayed a week. Used as a base to visit the state for fall vacation. Site was fairly level, grass. Utilities worked well, cable TV was great and WI-FI was pretty good until Friday night when the campground filled up and more people were using it. Lady in office was nice and helpful, the gentleman, not so much. We would stay here again if in the area. We camped in a motorhome. We camped at Abel Mountain Campground in a Motorhome.

We had reserved a site on the river, but when we arrived we realized that we would not get satellite TV reception, so they moved us to the upper level and it was fine. Site was large with utilities in the right place. Electric and WIFI were fine, but water pressure fluctuated from good to weak. Site was grass and dirt that was sloshy and muddy when it rained; dusty when it was not raining. All in all a good place to stay if you are in the area. We camped at Abel Mountain Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Catch the bands on Saturday nights at the RV park. Tap One on Main Street in Randolph is worth a visit. If you need your car worked on go to Chips Auto & Tire in Randolph. Chip does good work and is a friend of the RV park and the community.

A lot of seasonal or permanent campers with all sites in very well kept condition. Sites are roomy (no close neighbors), level and solid base. It rained while there and didn't see any standing water. The road into the CG could use a little TLC (bad bump at the end of blacktop). Also, some trees on way to site need trimmed. Check in went smoothly with nice and friendly owners. Would stay here if in the area. We camped at Abel Mountain Campground in a Motorhome.

We returned here since our son lives within 5 minutes of the park. We had a site on the river which was nice. The sites along the river are plenty wide enough. The one negative is with some rain, the grass was wet and are feet got wet but probably better than getting mud everywhere. The owners were very nice and they have a very nice visitor policy. If your visitors are just coming to your site then there is no charge, only visitors that plan on using the pool and other facilities need to pay and they use the honor system to collect the fees. Not too much to do in the area but we did go out to breakfast with our son and took a ride up to Ben and Jerry's. this was a very quiet Campground, night and day, never heard any noise of any kind other than the train. We camped at Abel Mountain Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Overall Rating:

A nice, isolated, quiet campround along the 3rd branch of the White River. Single lane gravel access roads (some are grass) with an interesting descending curve coming in. Mix of grass and gravel sites (mostly grass) some in an open field, others in a lightly wooded area.

Power was mostly ok (did have one low voltage on Leg 1 during our stay). Water (40psi) and sewer ok. Wifi reasonable signal strength and speed. Verizon cell pretty much non-existent (voice and data) although sometimes a voice call would work. TMobile had good signal strength and speed. Minimal road bike riding in immediate area. Single stream recycling on site.

We will definitely stay here again. We camped at Abel Mountain Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed here four nights on our way back from Acadia National Park in Maine. It was the 4th of July weekend so lots of locals were there. Nothing very special about this place but it was ok for what we needed. There is a creek that runs next to the park and it is beautiful.

The major negative is the internet. They have about 6 different "sites" to connect to but it was hit or miss, mostly miss, with all of them. Forget getting internet from your camper. They claim it is an older system that they will be replacing. The internet even right next to the pool or office many times did not work.

We are told they are new owners since March 2016. They are nice but very laid back...almost too much. Never really saw them.

They did have a live country band Saturday night and they were great. A train does come through in the evening so just a little warning. One night it came passing through at 4:00 AM.

I would stay here again if we were passing by but wouldn't go out of my way to stay here. It was recommended to us by an RV blog to stay here. I think there are better places. We camped at Abel Mountain Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This was my first time camping at Able Mountain. Very clean campground and friendly staff. We went down for the annual pig roast - even though it poured the whole time...it was great! I was nervous that they would run out of pig, but this staff proved that this wasn't their first pig roast. Very well organized and had plenty to eat!! Smaller campground with nice pool and clean restrooms. Bingo was fun and people staying here are very friendly. Only downfall is they allow people to book 2 years in advance and there are a lot of seasonal lots, so it gets booked very quickly. Otherwise, I would stay here again. We camped at Abel Mountain Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Abel Mountain Campground is a well taken care of, open campground with a clean pool and a somewhat sparse kids play area. Across the river is a hiking trail system that was enjoyable and clearly marked. The creek sites back up close to the river creating a nice atmosphere. Camp store is limited, but the town of Randolph is a couple of miles away. If you have a big rig, this is a good choice. If you want a more private wooded site, perhaps a differing campground would be a better alternative. We camped at Abel Mountain Campground in a Travel Trailer.
