We stayed here in April because of the indoor pool and hot tub. Visited relatives a few years ago who stay here and were very impressed so decided to stay for a few days. Loved the private wooded sites with plenty of room between your neighbors. Stone fire pits, paved roads very well kept campground. We had our son and daughter-in-law stay over night (Fee $15 each) and 2 day guests ($4 each). Our 10 month old grand daughter was included in our base rate. We were aware of the extra charge before we booked. Fire wood was $4 a bundle which was the cheapest campground price we have found. Our day guests and my wife and I are already planning on booking 2 sites for next year! They wished they had taken their camper this year!

We enjoyed our stay at this campground. Our fellow campers were very friendly. Our site was a water/electric site. It had a curve in the middle of the site and sloped, but I was able to level our 32' motor home with just a few blocks. The site was paved and grass with nice privacy hedges and trees. Field stone fire pit. Grounds are nice for dog walking and bike riding. The bathrooms were dated, but clean. We were told new bath houses were scheduled to be built for next season. You needed quarters to take a shower and there was a change machine at the front office. I noticed a sign in the front office prohibiting the use of AC. This was not a problem for us because the nights were cool, we had to run our furnace, and there was a nice cool breeze during the day. We will return to this campground in the future, but only in the spring or fall because during the summer we need AC for medical reasons.

Scusset was one of our favorite campgrounds. We have camped there many years and have had many different sites. The Friends of Scusset have made many improvements over the years and the new pathway is enjoyable to walk. This year we had 2 week of bad experiences. The Host camper next to us had a white hose attached to his sewer pipe and would dump his grey water near our picnic table. I then noticed other campers doing the same so I reported it to the camp office and the rangers. I was told by the ranger that white hoses are for water. Yes, but NOT when they are attached to a sewer outlet! I spent $160 dollars for a Tote to dump my grey water at the dump station. It is a shame that this is going on unchecked. Some campers were allowed multiple cars at their site while other were limited. It seems unfair rules for "Special " guest. Some camper were allowed to stay over the 2 week restriction. My dog was attacked by 2 unleashed dogs and almost bitten by 2 others. It is not pleasant walking the dog with all the other "Special" campers doing as they please. It is too bad a beautiful campground is being ill managed. I filled out the DCR State survey and hope to hear back from the campground. Please save Scusset! We will not return to this campground.

What a beautiful campground! The place is immaculate and very well cared for. The restrooms are the nicest I have ever seen. We were escorted to our site by a young man who said "Welcome Home" once we parked. It truly felt like home. The seasonal campers were the friendliest group that we have even met and they all made us feel at home. We had no problem with our 32' motorhome on our site even though they are close together. Wi-Fi was spotty, but no major inconvenience. The sites are lawn! What a nice feeling stepping out of our rig onto plush grass. Our site was in the second row, but we had a view of the ocean. The trolley stop at the campground was very handy. The campgrounds' location is perfect for a beach vacation. We cannot wait to return and extend our stay for next year.

Beautifully kept campground. Grounds are meticulous and staff is very friendly. We were in the lower area on a pull through site. WiFi and cable were excellent. One feature that was at some sites were small yews or juniper evergreens planted next to the sewer connection to hide the pipe from the neighbors patio side. Nice touch, I wish more campgrounds did this. We came here for a week to relax and certainly enjoyed the tranquility. We cannot wait to visit again when we are in the area. Actually thinking of booking for next season before we leave.

Staff was friendly. We were in the Out Post sites located back by the cranberry bogs. Very neat and clean campground. Plenty of walking areas and trails around the many bogs and ponds. We will definitely return to this park.

We were shocked at the condition of this campground. Drove in and right back out. Did use the restroom, and it was clean, but I was over come by the smell of Lestoil cleaner! Play ground was on dirt with no mulch, grass, pea stone, etc. Sites are one on top of the other, and the roads are terrible. I am notifying KOA to go and inspect this campground. You would even have difficulty riding a bicycle. NOT a typical KOA campground. Do not go to this campground!

The park is maintained beautifully. Access to the DC metro is great. Tours from the campground are convenient. The pools (one heated) are some of the nicest we have seen. The cafe offers a wide variety of items. Gift shop and RV supply stores are well supplied. We had a patio premium site with brick patio/picnic table/ patio furniture/grill. Sites are gravel with wood boarder. Nice hiking trail through the woods. Dog park. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Bathroom shower stalls had dressing area with shelves and about 5 hooks for hanging items. Would not hesitate to return. You do hear highway noise and sites are smaller, but we expected this being so close to DC. They offer 10% discount for Good Sam, AAA and a few other clubs. You also get a 20% coupon for the grill. If you purchase a Cherry Hill cup at the Grill you get free refills for your entire stay, so great for the kids.

We were disappointed because there was no pool on the grounds. You had to drive a mile and a half down the road to KOA Woodlands to use the pool. It is advertised as pool access for both campgrounds which I felt was misleading. There was a sewage odor from the leech field which we would smell if the wind blew in our direction. The camp sites close to the field complained. Hope they resolve the problem. Staff was friendly. We would return if we were there in the spring or fall but not in the summer since we enjoy a pool.

We liked the state park feel of the campground and the overlook to view the ocean. We would go back to this campground because we like clean and quiet. Our site was a pull through and I had to fill in two holes make by the previous camper that apparently got stuck. I encountered 3 dogs during our stay that were not leashed, one disrupting our site knocking over chairs and tray table spilling drinks and snacks. He came charging in at our two dogs that were leashed. I complained at the office so I hope they enforce their pet policy in the future. We did not notice any activities but we were here to just enjoy the view, pool and tour the area. We stayed 4 days. The view is priceless!

Awesome! The staff was one of the friendliest we have ever encountered. The gate keepers even had treats for my dogs! We were in the 900 section and were very pleased. Full hook ups with cable TV. We chose this campground because it is close to home and did not want to deal with the Cape Cod traffic on Memorial Day Weekend. We could hear some traffic noise from route 1 or 495, but with the A/C it was not a problem. The safari fields were somewhat crowed, but since we like full hook ups, we would not stay in those areas. Disc golf was a nice addition and the dog park was one of the largest and best I have seen. They even has an area to wash your dog. We will definitely be frequenting this campground. Sometimes the BEST is right under your nose!

We usually love this campground but the new sign at the dump station says it is open until 3PM. It was never open past 12, the 4 days we were here. On our last day the dump station was closed because it was full and the people at the desk told us they were waiting for the sewage truck to pump out the septic. This was the beginning of the season and we left on a Monday, so just beware that you may not be able to use the dump station. They have cleaned up the park and added new walk ways to the beach. Shower curtains in the showers would be nice. If you can camp and not have to dump, this is a beautiful location.

We stayed here for five days for our season opener. Our site was lined with pine trees on either side which made it feel private. The site was level with grass and some sand. We RV to Cape Cod often in the off season, and found this to be one of our favorite spots. Easy acess to Plymouth and the cape. The lake was nice and clean and the campground was well kept. The only negative was that our water pressure was very low. I am going to inquire from one of the neighboring seasonals campers if they are having the same issue. The staff was very friendly. Price is comparable to other campgrounds in the area. There is a full convience store at the entrance that is open to the public with great variety. Nice walking trails through the pine woods. Glad we found this place. We will definitely return.

I emailed the Casino and they sent me a web link to print a permit. When you arrive just follow the signs for over sized vehicles bearing to the right. There is a sign with a phone number to call and the guard will meet you to fill out a permit. The lot for RV parking overlooks the river and the spaces along the perimeter are level. The ones in the center are slightly sloped but not a problem. Being April, there were probably 50 RVs, so plenty of room and you could put your slides out. Security guard was very pleasant. The shuttle bus was running every 20 minutes and dropped us off right at the main hotel. We will return.

We loved our stay at this campground. The magician and the ceramics were enjoyable. Office staff was friendly. We originally wanted a patio site, but opted for a site near the pool. Traffic noise from route 95 was noticeable from our site, but not a major problem. We will definitely come back, but pay the extra fee for a patio site located further away from the 95 section. Our site was level and water pressure and Wi-Fi were great. The camp store is well stocked and the RV dealership on site was nice to purchase RV items. Price payed reflects KOA membership. One thing I notice was an tire air pump at the entrance, one amenity I have not noticed at other campgrounds. We will definitely return. Will make reservation for next season before we leave this trip.

Drove in. Drove out. Dirty and crowded. Water fowl roaming around the campground and river all muddy and full of duck and geese droppings and feathers.

A very nice, clean, well maintained campground with many activities for children. Loved the patio sites, will definitely book one in the future. First place we camped where they supply dogie bags for pet clean up. Dog park was nice for the dogs to run free. We were in the lower part of the campground with paved roads. Our site was level and water pressure was 110 psi. The upper rear section is very rustic with many pine trees. We like to walk our dogs in this section because of the woods and the cool shade. They rent golf carts and even RVs on site. Pool was super clean and well maintained. Located right off route 44, but we never heard traffic noise. Will definitely return.

The staff was very helpful and the seasonal campers were very friendly. Had a rain storm one night and the staff was out regrading the roads. Very nice pool. Had a bear walk through one night. Very wooded campground surrounded by corn fields and dairy farms. Kids in the campground loved the firetruck rides around the campground. We would definitely stop here again.

This was our second visit. We love this place. The French Mountain Theater has great entertainment. Camp store is one of the best I've seen with competitive pricing. We camped with other family members in the neighboring site. We saw 2 motorhomes bottom out on BillyGoat Lane, so GO SLOW, or avoid this section of the park. See previous review I made in 2008. Saw a huge 5th Wheel arrive which could not maneuver through the Butternut section. I was surprised the registration office even sent them there. When we return we will request another site away from BillyGoat Lane. Could not stand the suspense watching people arrive and scraping down the hill.

We camped here for one night. Price payed included 4 adults and 2 dogs and KOA member discount. We had 5 guests join us for dinner and were not charged extra since it was still off season. Staff was exceptional and very friendly. Roads and some sites have been recently graded and very smooth. Restroom, showers were spotless. Saw many workers around the grounds preparing the campground for the up coming season. We would definitely camp here again.

We were at site 263 which is in the new, upper section which features extra wide sites. The site was great: gravel, nice lawn in back, level and had some trees. This resort had everything. Like the kayak area and the salt water exploration. It was a very busy campground, but our section was super quite and well maintained. The trolly to the beach was a nice feature. Pine Point Beach is beautiful. Old Orchard is more for the adventursome and boardwalk type activities. We would definitely go back.

We were on site #10 next to the fishing pier and lobster shack, right on the water. What a view. Seals and porpoises swimming by our window. Check out the surrounding fields for deer. Staff was friendly and helpful. The restaurant and lounge were a pleasant surprise, even cooked our lobsters for us! The Saturday night dance with DJ and pig roast were great. Eastport is a quaint seaport town with nice shops. Don't forget to visit the mustard factory. Rate for the site was for 4 adults. Cannot wait to return. Bring your passports so you can hop over to the Canadian islands right next door. Ferry is in Eastport.

Friendly staff. Grounds were neat and clean. Pool was beautiful and heated. Loved the "Wet Hay Ride". All the kids, big kids too, were pulled around the campground at 3 pm by a tractor. The kids had squirt guns and cups of water to spray as they drove along. The campers had their hoses ready at their sites to spray the wagon as it passed. What a funny sight. The driver of the tractor was soaked! The chef had extra breakfast buns, so he passed them out to the guests at the pool. Seasonal sites were landscaped very nice. We felt very welcome here and will definitely return.

We were able to choose our site. We picked #7 which was secluded, grass lawn and gravel, level site and beautiful. Campground was neat as a pin. This was one of our favorite sites compared to other campgrounds we have stayed. The staff was friendly and very helpful with region info. We are already planning on going back to this campground. We saw six moose during our stay at different areas around the lake and surrounding ponds and bogs. People in the area were friendly and made you feel welcome.

Loved the heated pool and jacuzzi. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Nice place to relax after a day of sightseeing and shopping. Site was level and had nice view of the surrounding woods. Only thing missing for us were walking trails through the woods. Other than that, nice place, and we would return.

We came to Daytona for the Coke 400 race at the Daytona Speedway. We chose this camp ground because it was close to the track. My son and I plus 3 other guys came here strictly to attend the races over the 4th of July. The campground was very neat and clean and we enjoyed the flee market across the street. Staff was friendly and helpful. Rate was high due to the race. Water pressure was low and there was only one shower stall in the campground bath house. We are already planning to return for next year's race and would definitely return to this KOA.

This campground is one of our favorite. We were at site T-5. Water, electric, sewer, and cable. Loved the stone fire rings and the decorative fencing. Really gives it a feeling of old Cape Cod. The wooded sites and the paths were great to explore. We enjoyed fishing at the lake and sitting at the beach watching the swans. Great place to see many species of birds is around the old retired cranberry bog. Staff was very friendly and helpful. For those who want to experience the real Cape Cod, this is a really good central location. We cannot wait to stay at Sweetwater Forest again!

The staff was awesome. Friendly and helpful. We were there at site W17. The lake and pools are very nice. Sites were very close and no privacy. Our neighbors campfire set off our smoke detectors. Site were so close that I felt like I was at a NASCAR race dry camping with the fans rather then at an RV Resort. There was a loud group that partied until after 3 am! Campers complained, I guess the security guard was off sleeping somewhere. Kids were running around screaming and yelling even after quiet hours. We have stayed at other family resorts with many activities for children, but the rules were followed and inforced for the enjoyment of all campers.

We like to bike the canal and do some fishing. This is a nice campground for short weekend stay overs and is close to home for us. The beach is nice, water is colder on this side of cape though. There is an area for a group camp fire, but we wish that they would allow fire rings at each site.

Neat, clean and manicured campground. Hollywood could film an RV commercial here. The only draw back for us was lack of privacy between sites. Felt like being in the town common with a bunch of RVs. We would go back to stay over for a night or two.

We were on site #58 which was on Marsh Creek and had a cement pad patio. The staff was friendly, helpful and made you feel right at home. Tours to the battlefields are available right from the campground. Car rentals will even come to "Pick you up" if you decide to rent a car. The gift shop is great, better prices then downtown! Everything was spotless and well maintained. We had no cable TV because the campground was being wired for new cable. We would definably return to this campground.

We stayed here 2 nights on our way to Gettysburg. It was very cold and we did see flurries the day we were leaving, therefore there was no water at the site. We were told in advance that the water would probably not be on when we arrived. Our site was D 11, which was fairly level with 20 amp electric, sewer, and water in warmer weather. All the fire places were made of the pinkish colored stone from the mountain. Many of the site were outlined with the same stone made into small walls. The few seasonal sites were very neat and clean. The showers and bathrooms were spotless. We loved the wooded sites and the hiking trails up to the fire lookout tower. We like quiet peaceful campgrounds and this fit the bill perfectly. The roads were a little rough in spots, but if you went slow, it was OK. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We stopped over for one night on our return trip. We hope to visit the WT Family Campground again during race season.

We stayed here one night during the off season. Our site was #64 on the upper section. It had 50, 30 and 20 amp electric box, cable,picnic table, charcoal grill and fire ring. There were many renovations being done. As mentioned by previous reviewers, the seasonal sites need to be maintained better especially the Jones Beach Bus. Scattered around the campground were numerous electrical stands that held about 20 electric meters and phone boxes. I felt like I was camped at a power station rather the a campground. I hope they plan on building nice sheds around these meters. We had six deer visit our campsite while were were preparing dinner. The staff was friendly and helpful. The site were close together, but since it was off season, we were not crowded. We would stop over again if were were in the area.

Staff was friendly and helpful. Park was clean and well keep. Would stay there again, but would like a site on the property across from the river where it was more wooded and private. The Olympic Tour is great. From the campground you can walk to an ice cream store, gift shops and restaurants. Views of the mountains are great from the campground and the hiking trails are awesome. We were at site #5. Loved the rubber flooring in the shower rooms. All the fire rings were surrounded by stones,so it look natural and not like someone lost a tire rim.

Loved the RV park. Very clean and well maintained. Activities and shows were great. Well worth the price. Just watch out for the hill on BillyGoat Lane. Looks like many people bottom out on the hill. We stayed in site W2. Price $71 on weekends and guest were extra.
