Family run, quiet and clean! Having stayed in many different campgrounds, this one is one of my favorites. Not a place to go If you want to party all night, which makes it great for families and people who actually like to sleep. The family that runs it is really nice and enforces the noise curfew, 10pm, which means that... More

Without reservations they were able to provide us with two nights at the beginning of a very busy weekend. Our site was very close to the entry gate and therefore had a lot of traffic. The speed limit was my pickup in first gear idle which was appropriate with the number of youngsters in the campground. The staff assisted us... More

This is a great campsite with well maintained washroom and shower facilities. They are always kept clean and function well. It is a fifteen minute drive to the beach and close to EVERYTHING. The sites are kept clean and the site rules are great and observed. Kid friendly and also great for couples. I first went camping there and have... More

found this campground to be very clean and is convenient that it is only 2-1\2 miles from Hampton beach. Pool is very well maintained. would stay there again. However though if I found a campground that was just as close I would stay there first...being that you did have to be at a crawl or otherwise be spoken to. Stayed... More

Have stayed here for years ... Due to location near coast. WIFI is non usable (very frustating). The older man and women owners are waiting to catch you going over "OLD MAN" walking speed. Crazy stricked and rude about it. Ruins the community spirit of a camp ground! Fosters people who have a bone to pick, as they wait to... More

I started camping at Tidewater with my grandparents Percy and Helena back when I was just five years old. I'm now in my forties! I pretty much grew up at the campground. There are many rules to follow which made me feel safe growing up. My cousins and I could go where we pleased without anybody worrying about us getting... More

I do not recommend staying here. The minute I walked into the office I was treated unfairly and was talked down to. The supposedly owner was very rude, disrespectful and such an awful person. She only said things I could not do and wasn't even pleasant about it. Not even a hi how are you, what can I help you... More

My family and I have been coming here since 2003 and loved it. The location is great, it's only a few minutes away from the beach. However the speed limit is slow, I feel totally safe letting my kids out alone riding bikes. The campsites are very clean. We will return here happily for many years to come!

PLEASE read all the reviews. This is absolutely the worst campground in the state. Even a drill Sargent won't want to stay here. If I am paying to stay I should be relaxed and comfortable. Not, yelled at for going 5 miles an hour. The bugs are horrible and the staff spends to much time yelling at the guests. Very... More

My husband and I have been camping at Tidewater since our children were very small and we have been seasonal there for the past 2 years. We absolutely LOVE it! I can not wait until May 15th! It is our home away from home. Our children this year will be 10 and 13, and we have always felt so comfortable... More
