“Nice but expensive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2013

Coming from western MA, Mystic KOA is the perfect place for us to kick off the 2013 camping season over the Memorial Day weekend. It is a short haul for our 5th wheel to take for the weekend and get out all of the kinks for camping over the summer. Cons were that you couldn't park more than 1 car at a site, which I didn't understand as we were in the safari field and there was ample room for parking. Another con is that it was $100 more for the weekend than Mystic Seaport which was just 8 miles away (however, for that $100 more you do get more amenities: nicer campground, heated pool, bounce playmat and Mystic was under construction and was a muddy mess). Another con was that there was only 1 dump station and they were very draconian in their checkout time. The pros though are that they had wifi, 36 ch cable, twice a day on-site trash pickup. Normally we connect to sewer but the full hookups were all booked so the dump station was a necessary stop.

Room Tip: The pull through sites are nice for big rigs but you are out in the open. The full hookups were boo...

Went for the weekend with family before the main season started. Stayed in their Kozy Kabins. The staff was helpful and friendly, and even offered portable heaters for the cold nights. Close to the Mystic Aquarium and other activities. Had a great time and would go back.

We lucked into a night at the campground. Turned out it was an earlier Halloween night at the campground. Campers had their site deck out for Halloween and a haunt hayride through the campground... we were even registered by a werewolf. Great staff and a wonderful shower.
thanks for the happy night.

Late September, campground empty except for long termers and rate still over $60 for an unlevel site with minimal landscaping. The row in front of us was devoid of trees. Good wifi connection. The facilities were dated but clean. The staff were less than enthusiastic, requesting that we not bother them too early for propane in the morning after they deemed it too late in the AFTERNOON.

Sure the location is sweet for quick drives to Mystic, Groton, and New London. But billing yourself as accessible to NYC for the opera, is inan. Nothing justifies the price.

We camped in a motor home.

This campground was great! Clean, quiet, even though we were here Labor day weekend. Staff was friendly and helpful. Very dog friendly.

only 10 minutes away from the Aquarium, Mystic Seaport etc. Easy to just hop on I-95 and get to the fun!
Plenty to do at the campground, with 2 nice size pools, and activities!

Room Tip: If you din't have an RV or tent they had adorable cabins!

I'm not a big fan of camping but the cabin here was really nice. It even had a mini fridge. They had a great pancake breakfast on Sunday morning. I was a little disappointed that the camp store didnt sell maps of the local area. We had to ask the employees for directions which they didnt give too well and we got lost trying to find a store to buy pillows and a fan. Still, that was a minor inconvenience. I would definitely come back.

This was our fifth year vacationing at the Mystic KOA and once again, it did not disappoint. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and did their best to keep on top of things at all times. They had their hands full, unfortunately due to vandalism by guests, tree damage from storms, and some guests that treated the faciities and staff irresponsibly.
I read the comments about the restrooms, and it's a shame that more campers can't clean up after themselves. If I had one comment to make about maintenance, I would recommend that the cleaning crew carry a shop vac when cleaning the cabins to get rid of cobwebs.
This campground has plenty of great activities all week long, and every year there is something new. As always, we can't wait to come back!

Room Tip: If you are staying in the camping cabins, bring a couple of fans. There is a Super Stop and Shop su...
