Great Family run New England Campground! Nice sites, affordable and Tons of Nature to explore at the campground and in the General area that doesn't cost any extra money. We stayed down by the river which was cool to hear at night and cool off in during the day. we can't wait to visit next year!

Wanting to enjoy the great holiday weekend weather forecast we headed to Crows Nest for our first time! We can't say enough how much we enjoyed the weekend! The cabin was exactly what we hoped for. Private, spotless, comfy, the site was wooded which offered the privacy we were looking for on my birthday weekend. The bathrooms were also spotless... More

I just returned home from a four night stay at the Crow's Nest. It is a nice, small campground with large sites and plenty of room for the kids to play. We have two boys, ages 11 & 9 an they were busy the whole time. There aren't any activities during the week, at least not this time of year... More

This campground has a nice pool and the staff was very nice. The sites are ok although some are a little close but you get that many places. Some of the grass was cut but there were some sites and areas that it looked like the grass had not been cut in awhile and a little trimming of the grass... More

This was our 3rd trip to Crows Nest. We love it. We always get a site right on the Sugar River. It is just beautiful and relaxing. Our party ranges in age from 12-75 and there was something for everyone to do. We love it here. The pool is great, the river is great, the owners are friendly and helpful.... More

My wife and I RV camp with a small group of friends sometimes ranging in age from 5-60 and we love the laid back family atmosphere they provide.

My husband and I have always camped further north, but decided to keep it closer to home since we were just going for a one night get away. To start, we were charge for an early check in when we showed up at 11:30 (check in at 1). We understood why and decided it was worth the fee, until we... More

Stayed @ crowsnest for the first time. We do a lot of camping and try to go to different campsites. I have never written a review for a campground but loved this one so much. As soon as we got there they gave us another campsite (116) so we wouldn't have any one next to us. The bathrooms and showers... More

I have gone to this campground for almost 12 years now and I must say it has gone down hill with the customer service! The owner Andy is one of the most rudest individuals I have ever met. He treats his campers like children and could care less about them. I will never go to this place again!

Respect and common courtesy are keys to a good experience and need to be followed for the benefit of all. We wish you all the best in your future endeavors. More

We have now stayed at Crow's Nest Campground twice and love it. The owners do a great job of keeping everything clean and running well. There are lots of organized events and plenty to do on your own. It is pet friendly, they even have a small dog park where pets can be off-leash. They have everything from wooded tent... More
