We were lucky enough to find Wakeda over 20 years ago and have been going every year since. We absolutely love it and judge all other campgrounds to it. We have watched it grow over the years and Boy...has it. Every year there is more and more. The office staff have always been friendly and helpful.
They take excellent care of the facilities and there is always somebody working, cleaning or fixing something to keep it up to par. Most will wave as they pass you. The showers have stayed 25 cents over the years. Nice touch. Bathrooms are usually pretty clean. Sites are plentiful. There is a good portion of seasonal sites but also many non-seasonal sites to. Depending upon your needs you will be sure to find one you will like. It has built up over the years but you can still find sites for primitive camping to get into the woods and enjoy yourself if you wish. Sites without any services such as water, electric and sewer are starting to get a bit pricey. I completely understand the cost of sites with amenities.
The grounds are well maintained and we noticed a lot of nice touches such as new signs and more flowers this year.
It is usually pretty quiet. Occaisionally there will be a rowdy group but it is addressed quickly. There is a nightly drive thru by security. There are staff on the entrance gates at night checking stickers before you enter. There is an emergency number posted after the office closes if for any reason you need them.
The grounds are located close enough to Hampton/Hampton Beach area but just far enough that you don't get alot of the unwanted crowds. There are any number of stores around so you are never far from anything you need.
We will continue to come back year after year. My only request or suggestion would be to consider staying open until Columbus Day. We would love to go there in the fall and get that one last camping trip in but they close October 1st.
