The location is perfect for an overnight stay on your way to New Hampshire. It's easy to get to, with a Shopette nearby (you actually go past it on your way to the FamCamp). The FamCamp has water and electric, but no sewer. You have to use one of those blue portable honey wagons and have it pumped out, or take it to the dump station. The manager is nice and friendly, the facilities are clean and the Club is in the corner of the campground. We'd stay again, but just short stays...
This park has some real potential. We stopped here for two nights on our way to New Hampshire, so the location was ideal for our route. When you arrie, you will enter the main gate, go through the traffic circle, pass the the gas station where you will turn left. This road will lead right to the campground. To echo what others have said, the camp is treated without a lot of care. We arrived on a Saturday after the office closed and chose a spot. We had to inspect three different sites since the first two were 50 amp service only and we are 30 amp. We chose site 11 which gave us good TV antenna coverage as well as Verizon wifi. The pad was concrete and level with plenty of room for our 35 ft fifth wheel and truck. The big negative was the trash in the fire pit that seemed to have been there for some time. This could be a really nice campground, it just needs the attention. If passing through we would definitely stay again.
Excellent location. Arrived on a Sunday. No host and office was closed; instructions for self parking were adequate. We took spot 16. No satellite reception because of trees. MIFI signal was poor. Spot was level, but so unkept. Grass was overgrown; dirty rug left on ground; fire pit full of trash, etc. Bathroom was adequate, but filthy. Several "homesteaders". This fam camp could be such a gem. It just looked like nobody cared.
We stayed for two nights over a weekend. The campground was very quiet with not much going on on the base. The dirt road through the campground has several large potholes that should be filled. The concrete pads on the sites are too short for our 38' class A but the sites were level. The first site we tried had no water which we reported. The laundry facilities were very good and cheap at $.75 for both washers and dryers. The bathrooms were clean. Small exchange, no commissary although the convenience store at the gas station carried a few thing, including Class 6. Gas prices were considerably lower than outside the gate. Not much else to say. It is a good stopping over point if traveling through Massachusetts but not much to do in this area. At $18/night, it was a real bargain as we had just paid $37.50/night in a very dumpy campground in CT.
We were on our way from Boston, MA to West Point, NY and made a slight detour to stay here long enough to get our Frequent Camper logbook stamped. Since we were only here overnight, I can't make a thorough evaluation but this is not a place I will return to and I do not understand all the 4 and 5 scores this place was given in previous reviews. I have stayed at about 60 military campgrounds and this place would be in the bottom 10.
Nice campground with large sites. I was in site 18. Electric was either 20 or 50 amp. Concrete pad is a little small. Area around pad was all ruts from vehicles driving there in soft muddy conditions. I felt that $18 a night for electric and water was a little high. Staff was friendly as were guards at gates.
Large sites some in trees and some open so can get satellite. Could be very nice if they had sewer. All sites have picnic table. Hardstands are short ie. with a 38' MH you can only get front or rear wheels on concrete not both. Basically grassy sites.
