A very clean well kept park. Quiet and relaxing. Stayed 2 nights and enjoyed a cool swim in lake after very hot day at village. Park rangers very polite and helpful

This park had some lovely attributes. The facilities at the park are older, but the yurt seemed new. It was very nice, with beds, a table, electricity, a light, and overhead fan. The bathhouse was fine, not great but fine. One thing that was noticeable were the huge amounts of gypsy moths... They were everywhere - I've never seen anything... More

Small campground on peaceful lake. Some sites are lakeside. Sites range from small to very large, sunny to shady. Lots of options.

We had site 16; right on the water, super clean, huge with 2 picnic tables and fire pit, on a cul-de-sac. Staff were helpful and friendly (except for one lady, but oh well). Bathroom with shower was not sparkling, but it's a campground. They were adequate. Small beach was clean and safe. We had a blast.

We left the hub-bib of the Cape and were very happy to find this quiet, tree filled campground. Nice hikes which are fun, but not too strenuous. Some of the sites up on the ridge would be impossible for a big rig, but perfect for our 23 foot van. Note: Some sites are not level. choose wisely.

We have stopped to camp overnight many times in Sept. It is a favourite spot because of its natural beauty and quiet. The pond is lovely and the camping sites are very natural. Peace and quiet are the specialities. The services could stand some upgrades but if you like your camping rustic this is a great choice.

I camped here for two nights (Friday and Saturday) and reserved site # 17. I arrived late at night and easily found my spot using the map and following the signs. Site 17 is waterfront and has a good amount of privacy, on a little hill. The site is small. We had one car and put up one tent and... More

We were just looking for a place to take a nice hike in the woods during a recent hotel stay in Sturbridge. Parked for 5 dollars, picked up a trail map and explored the Carpenter Rocks trail and the Mill Pond Trail for a couple hours. Trails were well marked & well maintained. We got some lovely views. There were... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a weekend camping trip and enjoyed being on the Pond and the privacy that we had. We stayed at site 17 and couldn't hear any other campers. Although at night you can hear the Mass. Pike in the background but it is vert minimal. The bathrooms and free showers were average for a... More
