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.

There was plenty to do for adults and kids. We had a problem with reaching the electrical connections and Steve went out of his way to get us a temp fix until we were able to get a 50 amp extension cord. They’re very helpful and responsive to any problems that might come up. I will definitely be going back.

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.

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.

We checked in yesterday excited to start our holiday weekend with a family camping trip. It is day 2 and has been the worst experience of my life so far. Not only were we put in campsites that didn’t fit our camper, but I asked to be in a quiet area because we have young children- and we were put next to a group of 50 tent campers that have been non stop blaring music. Don’t get me wrong, wr play music but these ppl had subwoofer speakers they brought in and had the grounds shakinng around them all day/ night. Other campers have also complained several times and the problem Still persisted. The first time I came into the office to make a complaint Marilyn was very helpful saying she would take care of it and make sure they put the speakers away because that is against the campground rules to bring in speakers like that The third time I came in I got screamed at by Marilyn, telling me that I need to stop complaining and that We should go home. This is the worst I have ever been treated at any business and Was in complete shock. She screamed at me in front of other customers and said I need to deal with it because its the weekend. I was in tears I was so embarrassed. The only reason we didn’t leave right then is because we were there with another family and the kids would have been dvestated the leave early. We will never be back to White Pines.

After a long days travel we pulled into Whitepines Campsites in Winsted Ct. A very large campground pretty much filled, so much in fact we were put into the "Field". It appeared to be very family friendly with lots of noise and children's activities . As a retired couple travelling on, all we really required was a good nights sleep in a nice campground. Only once in our travels over the years have we paid more than the $59.00 charge at this campground. In my mind, too much for only average services. No on site wifi. Clean, but small and outdated washrooms. Poor sewer services in the "Field". The only plus was cable TV. I personally would not return.

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.
