I just arrived home from a 4 day stay at Sweetwater Forest Campground in Brewster, MA. We had four campsites with 15 people staying with us. We arrived on Friday and immediately checked into our sites. The sites are very large and had great space between each one. We were over in the "C" section and were very close to the bathrooms. We all had paths to each other's sites so it was great to go back and forth.
The worst part of staying here is there is absolutely NO swimming anywhere on this campground. NO POOL! at all. There is a pond which you are not allowed to swim in at all. You can boat and fish in this pond..but that is it. There is a pond nearby, which you have to go to the local town hall and get a permit to go to. This was really bad considering it's 90 degrees out and you are just dying from the heat and have no where to cool off!!
The next worse thing about staying here is the bathrooms here were the most disgusting bathrooms I have ever encountered in my life at a campground! 6 out of 8 toilets were clogged with urine/feces/toilet tissue! One out of two sinks was constantly plugged and unuseable! There were no paper towels and no hand wash either. The floor was constantly covered in mud..and it was bone dry outside! We called about 6 times for them to come and clean these bathrooms..which never got cleaned!!!! Another thing you may want to know about this campground is quiet hours start at 9:30!!!! OK..now I'm on vacation..I don't know too many people that go to bed at 9:30 on a Friday and Saturday. They strictly enforced these hours also! We were just playing a hand held game around the campfire and got yelled at 3 times..
I definitely will not return back to this campground ever! This was the second time I have gone to this campground. I gave it a second chance..and it definitely will be the last.
The other good thing about this campground is it's literally right on the bike path and that's always an awesome activity for the entire day!
