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

A weekend away at the beach with my sister turned into hell at the campground!! When we arrived I was driving 5 mph, the woman in the office yelled at me for speeding!!! As she proceeded to check us in she was giving us nasty looks (I'm assuming because we are younger and thought we were going to be loud)... More

I called the campground to make reservations for a weekend and the women seemed okay... until the next time i called and was a little rude but not horrible. Needless to say when we got there she was unbelievably rude acting like i was wasting her time and that she didnt want us there. She also had toys in the... More

I went there with a friend for a week end. We stopped there on our way to Hampton beach because it was on the way and we wanted to check if it was a nice place. The lady at the front desk was REALLY nice and we told her we would be back. When we came back 3 hours later,... More

I am a single dad with three sons. We were looking for a campground near Hampton Beach for the week. Tidewater appears to be a nice campground but after a few days it looses its luster. What everyone has commented on about maintaining walking speed in you car is true. The owner watches through the window all day and yells... More
