The camp staff was extremely friendly and knowledgable! We were directed to the next town over for a delicious meal at a restaurant called the town docks. And it was worth it! Campsites had small dividers giving you privacy and the bathrooms are meticulously maintained! We would definitely come back again!!

We stayed in 2014. Very friendly management. Spacious, private plots and we had a lovely view over the lake. Close enough for 3 and 4 year olds to walk to Weirs Beach. Very clean showers and good value.

We just spent 4 nights and 5 days in site 7. This campground is simplistic and not crowded. We were most impressed with how well this place was run. The owners genuinely care about making sure the campers have a pleasant experience. For the most part people were quiet and respectful with the occasional knucklehead camper here and there. The...

We had a camping site right down on the Docks and it was lovely. It's a very crowded campground but very well kept and very quiet during the evenings. It's walking distance to Weirs Beach which is a big plus too! Lots of things for familes to do with-in walking distance. We would stay there again! The owners are all... More

Just got back from a relaxing three days at Paugus Bay. The staff could NOT be friendlier and the free hot coffee at the office in the morning was delicious! The showers were clean and bright white fiberglass, not your typical dank and scary showers. It is a short walk to Weirs Beach and a short drive (less than a... More

First time to this campground. As we prefer more wilderness types of camping our initial reaction to all the seasonal trailers and close proximity of the campsites was "what have we done"? After setting up our tents on site 13, we realized that by parking our car between our tents and the road really eliminated the lights on cars coming... More

We are glad you enjoyed your stay at our campground. Try coming back after Labor Day when the rates drop $10 per night and it is really quiet! More

I have to say for my very first camping trip, Labor Day weekend in 2013 with my boyfriend. Was very good, I thought I won't even but I did. And it was so quiet at night, I slept like a baby every night I was there. Instead of all the rain we had, it never put a damper on anything.... More

My wife and I stayed for a weekend and had a great time with friends. This campground is very well maintained and the view from our site was terrific. Our only complaint would be the amount of golf carts driving around. The campground is mostly seasonal and walking on the small trail to town is downright dangerous with the traffic.... More

Thank you for the positive comments on the campground. We appreciate your feedback and would like to address your concerns. We do have many seasonals who own golf carts and they do not all follow our speed limit of 5 MPH. Every golf cart has the number of the seasonal's campsite on the back and we would appreciate knowing about... More

From the time we arrived, the owners made us feel very comfortable. Our camp site was right at the bath house. At first I thought, "OMG, what did I do?!", but the site was actually very nice. Once set up, we parked our truck to the back of the site for more privacy. The site was clean and fairly large.... More
