I recently stayed at the Timberland campground, and while the campground itself is amazing, there are several MAJOR issues that makes me suggest looking into near by campgrounds such as the National Park Service campgrounds in the area (of which there are several amazing ones) 1) Power - The power at this place is clearly overloaded. On the weekend I was getting warnings that the voltage was in the 95v range (120v service) The National Electric Code states that the lowest permissible voltage is 114 to national code at the furthest part of the line. Below 100v you can start to see damage to electronics and motors as this is a brownout. 2) No tent stakes - The campground didn't burry their water and power lines appropriately, so rather than fix it. They just ban the use of tent stakes. The owners also run the place so one night that a storm came through they even went around telling people they couldn't stake down their awnings or canopies. 3) Train Tracks - There are active tracks literally on the other side of the line of sites (lower sites are even worse as they arent at least elevated) and there are freight trains that come through regularly including all hours of the nights. The tracks are close enough that you can actually feel the rumble as it passes on top of the whistle, engine noise and wheel squealing. 4) Water Damage to Rental Unit - When I stayed I had family staying so I rented one of their rental trailers. The bedroom wall was leaking at the headboard when it rained and there was even a hole in the wall from the water damage and warping. When I let the owner know this they said they didnt think it was leaking anymore. 5) Guest policies - This was really just an insult on top of everything else mentioned. I had rented an electric site AND one of their travel trailers for a mini-family reunion. We had a total of 5 adults across the 2 units and they still charged a guest fee for the stay because ONLY 2 adults per site are allowed. I have yet to come across any other campground with such a restrictive and enforce policy. Its quite sad, like I said, its a charming campground, but between the being woken up jarringly at 3am by a train whistle or worrying that the constant brownout condition is going to damage your equipment, I just cant recommend staying here.…
Our 7 September days at Timberland Campground was a joy. What's not to like? Great location, camp site and hosts. Dave and Laurie are extremely friendly and accommodating. We loved our pull through site and tall trees.
We stayed for 3 nights. Owners are friendly and helpful. Campsite is wide, spacious and clean. Some nice hikes starting on the campsite. Lots to do in the area. Some Outdoor activities are a short drive away. (ATV, hiking and mountain biking)
Dave was wonderful when our camper lost power! Laurie was accommodating by giving us 2 sites for our 4 wheelers and 2nd car. Great location, fairly quiet but very buggy, nothing the owners can control in the north country! I would recommend this place for sure!
This is a nice campground. Staff is very friendly and helpful. The park is heavily treed and sites a bit narrow, but doable for larger units. Pretty area to visit and near good medical facilities. Would revisit.
