We stayed here on weekend in July, I reserved our site online. Friday was real hot, so while trying to find the shadiest spot in the site to set up the pop-up, one of the staff rode up on a golf cart to check on how we were doing during our set up. I told him that we were looking for shade, and he said he might have a better site for us. He offered a ride back to the office in his cart, then found a shadier site that was closer to the bathroom/office/pool area. That doesn't seem like rude staff to me...did I have to sign a waiver stating responsibilty for my self? Yes. Did I leave the campground in a huff? No. Did I expect to be refunded if I decided to not camp at a moment's notice? No. I did not have any visitors, so I can't say anything about that. The bathrooms seemed clean (They did get cleaned on Sat morning), I never looked at the pool, so I can't say anything about that. There was a DOWNPOUR on Sat afternoon, everything drained off well, no puddles that I saw. Basically this is an average campground (with a price about half that of Mystic KOA), with average amenities like a playground, but no hayride (WiFi was an extra charge, that part stunk). The place is like a Savanna in that there is very little shade- so watch out for that, But all in all, this place isn't that bad, despite what all the snivelers say, and you can't beat the location-it's about three miles north of the Aquarium, five north of the Seaport.
More mud then grass. I was one of many whos RV was stuck in the wetland of a campground. I thought I was going to the woods not water world. Nothing to do there, pool is gross. The manager Sara was really stuck up and made everything worse then what it was. This was a embarrassing trip for me and the whole family. I shouldve looked for some reviews. The horrors started when I pulled in but still haunt me a week later.
We have been camping at Seaport over the Memorial Day weekend for the last three years. This year was a huge disappointment. The campground bathrooms were disgusting, barely cleaned all weekend. The pool was cloudy and the pool area was unkempt. In previous years they used to have alot of activities for the kids, a band in the pavilion, etc. This year they did very little. Very disappointing and we probably won't be back.
We were told this labor day weekend that there were only 2 sites left that were both very small. We got there and registered and I and my husband were first of all really disappointed in the attitude of the girl who checked us in. she was very quick and short w/us and no "have a pleasant weekend" or anything like that. Getting back to the small campsite, we started to pull in because my husband is not so good at backing up the pop-up and we got yelled at by another one of the staff (someone in a golfcart) because we were pulling in... not bothering anyone else, by the way. On Saturday, we had friends come and join us for a couple of hrs, not the whole day as they didn't even get there until 3:00p.m., then we went for a drive to R.I. and didn't get back till 5:00p.m. and they left at 8:00. They were actually charged full price of $7.00 each for a full day. When our friend made a comment on how expensive that was, the girl practically threw his change at him and his camper pass to hang on his rearview mirror. This was yet another staff member. To put the icing on the cake, remember we were told they only had 2 campsites left? Well they were not booked for the weekend. They had full size campsites left which were not taken the whole holiday weekend. The place itself was very nice. The regular campsites were quite roomy and they had a volleyball court, pool, and a nice playground for the kids. But will we go back there again???? Probably not.
We got a site that should not be a site in this campground. Uneven ground, squished between and overgrown bush and a building "pavilion". Our camper was too tall to fit under the tree that it had to fit under to make it to the hookups. We asked for a change. The teenager was rude but gave us a choice of three sites which we scoped out and got a really comfortable, pretty one with no fire ring or picnic table...I got overcharged $28.00 which the same girl was rude about when reimbursing. Then there were the little things...like when leaving, no water at the dumpstation...a hose...but no water. On Sunday morning, no toilet paper and no electricity to make the hand dryers work and no paper towels. While we ended up having a good weekend, so close to Mystic Seaport, we will not revisit this campground any time soon.
We have been campers for 12 years and have stayed in 26 different states in campgrounds. We have NEVER been treated like we were at this campground. We were asked to sign a waiver that basically said that no matter what happened in the campground whether their fault or ours, that they would not be responsible for anything! We have NEVER been asked to sign something like that before. When we declined to sign it, we were told that we could stay in the park. After driving for a little over 1000 miles we have to find a new campground. Thankfully we did. Then they would not even refund us our deposit! Stay at the Mystic KOA if you wish to enjoy your stay, we did and do not regret it one bit!!!
