It is a dated campground. Went there with a group for the holiday weekend. This was recommend by one our friends who we camp with, they like the lake. Many trees need trimming, one party in our group had to trim branches before they could get into their site. Payed extra for cable, it was not good. My 30 amp service kept going off when using the AC. The owner said he has been changing out the breakers as they go, how about fixing them before they don't work properly. Many improvements needed. One of the worst places I've stayed at. The only up side was I was with several of my camping families.
Our second time to the area and second time to this park. Good location and friendly staff. We reserved 6 sites for our group in the full hookup area. No frills, but the price is right and the free shuttle around the area is a plus. The only negative that I have is the laundry. Two of the four wash machines were down the entire time we were there. We expected to do a few loads during the week and could not. This should of been addressed asap, with all the families camping and waiting to use the machines they could of done something, just saying. All in all, good stay.
We stayed on a spacious site with full hooks up with a beautiful view. The owners are new and very friendly. Quiet and peaceful environment. We visited the Howe Caverns, which was close by and drove to Cooperstown to the Baseball Hall of Fame. That was close to an hour away, but a nice trip and nice area. We also drove to the Herkimer Diamond Mine, which was about an hour and twenty minutes. Nice area to visit. The only negative if you want to call it that was a rule that prohibited use of AC, space heaters, etc. The hookups were 30 amp, so I don't see the problem and it appeared that it was not enforced. It was rather warm and I did use my AC. All in all a pretty good place.
Nice park close to the Mystic area. Left one day to Kayak Mystic River and spent a day in the Mystic Village. Great location and nice park if you want to visit the area. Nice pool and some scheduled events for kids and adults. I am a local, living about a half hour away and I didn't realize how nice this park was. Will return again. Price was with discount.
Stayed in the (s) section, which was pull through and had sewer hookups. We booked this early in the year and traveled with several other RVers. Our sites were pretty good, however fire pit and sewer placement needs some reconfiguring. WiFi was only available at the pool and laundry area and was ok at best. Pool was clean and enjoyable when we used it. This park was a very good alternative to the high priced places around Bar Harbor. We were out every day anyway exploring Acadia National Park, which is awesome. The free shuttle into the village or park was a added bonus. This feature is available throughout Bar Harbor. Hadley point waterway within walking distance, great for launching kayaks or jut having a fire on the beach at night, we did both. Staff very friendly. All in all nice place to stay at a very good price. Would return.
I've got to agree with the previous posts. This is nice campground; however, they are not a resort, and they have increased their prices to reflect the resort in their name. Yes, they do have some nice things: pool, lake, snack bar, friendly staff and clean property. But they have NO cable, poor Wi-Fi, but it's free, poor dog policy, and very little activities for free. They used to charge $5 for their mini golf, which is a very nice course. This year they wanted $8. You do the math; that's a lot on top of camping fees which are just too high, and if you have kids, it costs more. The final straw is the elimination of the free night in the fall that made it worth it for those who live locally and want to extend their Sunday and clean up their RV for the season. I camp a few times a year at Odetah and camp with 12-15 other families. We have agreed to take Odetah off our list. Greed in this economy is not they way to run a business.
I really like this campground, but they are starting to price themselves out of my range. They charge extra for just about everything including kids. Their Wi-Fi is free, but has never really worked well enough to bother starting up the laptop. They call themselves a Resort Park this year. I'm not so sure I would agree; nevertheless, a decent park, just too expensive for me.
Nice state park with no hook-ups. Went with a group, as we do yearly. Staff are constantly driving around checking on cars parked on the grass and unauthorized parking. Other than that pretty nice place. Nice beach, hiking, and biking.
This is one of the best parks I've been to. Staff is attentive, bathrooms are clean, and sites have plenty of room. Boat and kayak rentals are very affordable and the lake is beautiful. The park has two large heated pools and a smaller one for the little ones. This is our first trip to New Hampshire and we really enjoyed the area.
Stayed on a concrete pad, this was nice. This was my forth trip to Ocean Lakes. It's more like a small community than a RV park. Enjoyable visit again, but I still don't like the golf cart parades at night and cars that speed around, sorry to say, but the majority of this is the fault of young drivers. Definitely will return.
Nice park with a nice lake, however, a pool is needed at this park. Park is clean and camp store is very nice. Road is tight for those of us with bigger rigs. My 32' five wheel was difficult. Owner frequently driving around and making sure everything is good. Rumor is that the place is for sale??
Basically this is parking lot for RV's on the water. Great view with swimming, fishing kayaking, boating, and digging for clams. Dry camping of course, but not that bad. No showers make it difficult to clean up after being at the beach, however, you can drive to another State park to shower. All in all, pretty cool place to check out.
This campground has it all. Nice pool, nice lake with a patio snack bar, which is a new addition. Free WiFI is always a hit with us. This park is clean and well maintained. Office, store, and adult lounge are nice as well. Weekend activities are good for the whole family. Fishing and boating in a nice lake is very pleasant. My only complaint is the the sites that are next to the Rte 2, which is a two lane highway. The truck traffic is very loud all night. There are about 20 sites in this area. All in all I highly recommend staying in this Southeastern Connecticut Campground, you will not be sorry.
Great value when visiting Hershey Park. Discount tickets, free park shuttle, and very close to park. Nice pool and camp store. Staff very friendly and accommodating. The pull thru sites are tight. Fire pits to close to rigs. This is my only complaint. Area has many things to do. Gettysburg is less than an hour, Amish Country, and Caverns just to name a few. This was our second visit, we plan on returning.
First of all, this is a State Campground that only offers dry camping. The grounds are very nice, the sites are good size, and the beach is nice as well. Most of the sites are occupied by tents, but there are a fair amount of RVs. We usually come with our RV, but this time I camped with my son in a tent. Very little security for the middle of summer and the staff that were present were college-aged kids. Some campers were up late and loud, this is a turn off for me. We camp frequently in our RV and I always run my fan just to avoid the late night noises. The park has nice open fields and is bike friendly. The park offers some nice hiking as well. As a resident of the State of CT, I would like to see a little more care and services for campers, i.e., camp store and security through out the evening. One negative is that many kids run and ride through the sites. All in all it is a pretty nice place.
As indicated by other reviews, this park is very clean and quiet. The women who own this park take great pride in its appearance. Wifi was not working properly, however, they refunded our money without hesitation. Sites were spacious and well maintained. Would have liked to see the new playscape installed in the spring or fall instead of the middle of July, the kids were disappointed. Activities are limited to Saturday. Nice place to stay when visiting the Maine Coast, only 12 miles to beaches.
Pine Acres was one of the most enjoyable camping trips we have had in awhile. We camped at the edge of the their lake, which was very nice. Our kids fished throughout the week and were very successful. The pool complex was nice, however, I would of like to see the hours extended on both ends. 10am-6pm is just not a good enough time frame considering what you pay and the how fast the time goes by. Because we went during the week in June, there were no scheduled activities. I'm sure that this picks up in the summer season. But, once again for what you are paying there should be a little something scheduled for the kids. There were enough kids to schedule maybe a kiddie bingo or kickball, etc. Aside from that, nice place.
Nice park. Very surprised they still do not offer cable, however, they do have free Wi-Fi at the office lounge area. Sites close to RT 2 are noisy, but there are many other sites to choose from. Great Mini Golf! Fall camping includes a free night when you stay two. Nice option. Kids had plenty to do during the Halloween Theme weekend. Staff is pleasant and on top of things. We really enjoyed our stay!
Our site overlooked the lake, which was nice. Clean, quiet, and well kept park. We enjoyed our stay even though it was cold and rainy. The kids kept busy by fishing and exploring. The park does not offer sewer or WiFi. The dump station tends to get backed up, but we managed. Nelson's was a good value and a very nice family park. They also have a good RV repair, sales, and parts store on site. We plan on returning.
Our first impression was not good. We reserved and paid for, in January, four sites together. When we arrived we were split up. Our confirmation letters showed that we were together as well. One site was still occupied when we arrived. They did not move until 6:30pm. While the staff was friendly, all they could say is "sorry" and "I don't know what to say". This was rather disturbing considering between the four sites we spent over a thousand dollars. They did not offer any solutions or compensation for their errors. They advertise a heated pool, it was not heated. The sites were roomy, the activities were plentiful, and the WI-FI was free. Overall, the park was average and our stay was good. We probably would return.
On the positive side, the park overall, was good. We stayed on a VIP site, which included a concrete pad and had enough room. However, I do not believe that the park is big rig friendly. Our rig is 31' and there is not adequate room to back in "many" of the VIP sites. There are too many small trees that prevent movement of your RV and Tow Vehicle. Just about every one who pulled in had the same problem. Late travelers spent up to an hour backing in. Quite hours hours are between 11pm and 8am, which is good except when you allow for the late arrivals. On one night a RV pulled in well after midnight, with a large RV and a diesel tow vehicle. Needless to say they took for ever to get parked. I did not like that at all. Cape May area is very nice and somewhat affordable for a family vacation.
Ocean Lakes is a great resort. This was my second time visiting S.C. and my second stay at Ocean Lakes. The place is busy, but it is well maintained, well equipped, and the staff are very accommodating. Access to the beach is wonderful and there is plenty of room to spread out. Their pools are very nice as well. I have family and friends in Myrtle Beach so I plan on visiting annually. Ocean Lakes is one of my favorite resorts. It is like a small community. The only improvement that I would like to see, is a better WiFi set-up. They do offer a free WiFi area near their snack bar, however, I'd rather link up at my site. I'm sure this will improve in time.
