Considered one of CT's hidden gems, families return to White Pines Campsites - A Cruise Inn park year after year. We offer a beautiful location, great amenities, and abundant planned activities and recreational opportunities. There's so much to do here, both on-site and nearby from fishing in our stocked trout pond at the campsite to experiencing world-class fishing along the nearby Farmington River. For RV camping and tent campers alike, White Pines offers the perfect campground experience in a beautiful part of Connecticut. Feel like venturing off site? Enjoy fly fishing in the Farmington River, go tubing at nearby Satan's Kingdom, rent a kayak or canoe for a leisurely paddle, or search for bargains at one of Litchfield County's many antiques and collectibles shops. Take your family to an old-fashioned drive-in movie at one of the few remaining drive in theatres located just down the road in Pleasant Valley, CT. We'll help you find your way to your favorite activity.

Stayed 2 nights in this campground. After reading some of the reviews we were leery about staying here. But let me tell you - it was just fine! The people checking us in were very friendly & helpful. Our site, though not completely level was certainly adequate. Even though there are many full timers, we didn’t see any bad or run down campers. Some of the roads did have a few bumps, but I’ve been on worse on our interstates. All in all it was a very pleasant stay and we would definitely return here again.

This campground should be ashamed of themselves to be renting units that look like this! I booked multiple RV sites and two rental units for our large family vacation. I was so embarrassed and disgusted to see the rental units. Filthy, overflowing toilets, not cleaned between rentals. The pictures don’t lie.

Dont expect to sleep much here, first time there wasn’t kids/adults partying till 2am, but religiously they have their Diesel Sewer Truck driving around sucking the poop from the bathrooms not even 25ft from my tent and thats what I’ve woken to every single morning at 8AM?!?! (Also get ready for that smell 👃)Don't expect to be able to call anyone for help or to know what the office hours actually are, got 3 emails 2 of them saying one check-in/check-out times and then the third says different times, the paper on their door says a different time. Also the fact an employee came by on a golf cart and ended up scaring a bear and he ran past our site and the guy didn't think to say anything to us about the bear he just sent our way. Dont plan to actually relax the whole trip here from the confusion to the sewer trucks routine, to the seasonal trailer people who are right next to you and just stare at you the whole time.

Hi Dakota, we very much appreciate your comments regarding your stay at our campground and we apologize for any inconvenience. We know how valuable sleep is and as such, we have made sure that our sewer pump outs are always in the afternoons, as to provide minimal disturbance. We also regret to hear of your experience with the surrounding wildlife - Our team is actually trained on how to safely deal with bears and we always make sure to follow the correct procedures in order to maintain a safe environment. Nevertheless, we always encourage our guests to reach out if there's ever something not quite right, so that we can address it directly. We hope to welcome you back again for a 5-star experience next time. Safe travels.

We originally went up to White Pines for a day trip for a pet weekend. We ended up camping there twice last year and enjoyed every moment. The owners are amazing and staff goes out of their way to make sure you're having a great time. We went back this year and it's even better than last year. The new owners are listening to people and are bring the place back to life. The roads have been redone so its great to get around with the jogger while walking the dog.

A very nice, well maintained campground. We had an electrical power issue which maintenance addressed immediately and corrected with no further issues. The staff is very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. All of the buildings are clean as is the pool area. They have many scheduled and supervised activities for the guests. Keep up the good work! We camped at White Pines Campsites in a Motorhome

To start w positive the staff was all wonderful. Ok. This place is a dump. There is crap everywhere. Old beat up campers and broken down vehicles. Our pull through site was a u shape. With a 30 ft camper that is NOT a pull through. From our site (94) I believe. Our view was of 2 empty sites loaded with stuff left behind from seasonal campers who apparently left as no campers were on sites. There is only internet in the cafe attached to office which closed at 4 pm so me getting emails from work was impossible. The dump station is right in front of the pool which has to smell in summer. And very narrow to negotiate. For the $45 a night off season and weeknight. I could have driven another ten miles and been happy. Will NEVER return.

Thank you for camping with us early in the camping season, and for taking the time to leave a review. Please accept our sincere apologies that your experience here at White Pines Campsites wasn't as pleasant as we would have hoped, and allow us to address your concerns. We were in the process of cleaning out the double site across from you and in hindsight should have given you a different site in another area of the park. While we certainly understand your frustration, that single campsite is not representative of the remainder of the park. We are under new ownership and that area along with many others are being enhanced as we continue to work on new upgrades. We do strongly encourage feedback from our guests, especially during their time with us, so that we can have the opportunity to make any adjustments as needed at the time to help facilitate a pleasant experience for all. We wish you all the best.

Had a girls weekend with my 4 year old little girl. We stayed in the 5th wheel, since I have never done this before. We rented the 5th wheel since there was a shower but this was an issue but will get back to this. I like to do Pros first Pros: The staff was really exceptional, the facility, campsites, and pool / pool area was clean and clear, great snack shack, very nice and happy co-campers, the lights set up at night at all the camp sites simply AWESOME, hayride was really fun (as a suggestion..would be outrageously cool to do hayride at night when the campers lights are on), fun activities for kids, it is close to the last remaining Drive in theater who shows up to date films, big lots and feeling like the woods, great local activities such as hiking, state forest, kayaking, tubing at Satan kingdom, go carts and mini golf close and great restaurant (Chatterley's in New Hartford) Also...actually saw a bear walking down the road of the camp site! We loved all of these things. Can't say enough about all the pros at White Pines. Cons; Really only major issue was about the 5th wheel we rented. Smelled funny the whole time we were there (no matter how many windows open or how much I cleaned... I cleaned everything ALOT), the fridge never actually became cold and leaked water the whole time, the bed was a 3 inch pad on the crawl space bedroom (my back will never be the same) and the shower (the reason I got this particular place) did not work AT ALL (I could not get the water to come out of the shower head). Good things are a big deck, great fire pit and nice location area. With that said...I would come back to this location but would rent one of the cabin (they looked so cute from outside) instead of the 5th wheel. We had so much fun and my daughter still asks me when we are going back to her home in the woods. Thank you White Pines for making my first "girls weekend" with my little girl.
