“I can think of a better family campground in the area!”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

When my family and I stayed at prospect about a month ago I was incredibly impressed by the professional staff and the friendliness that greeted me at the door, check-in was a breeze! The grounds are very clean, they have tons of wicked fun kids activities. I cannot wait until next summer to spend another weekend. Oh and they have themed weekends, how fun!

I would like to say, my daughter and I have been camping at PMC for 6 years now. Its is so beautiful up there. We love listening to the tree frogs, bull frogs and watching all the wildlife. Yes, there are times, some sites can be loud, but considering, we are up there for 6 months and the weekenders only come up for just that, I kinda understand, but if it gets to loud-all you have to do is call and the staff will promptly take care of it.
When I have been in the store on numerous occasions, customers have come in yelling and complaining at the staff. Even in these circumstances, the staff is very respectful and handle all the situations in a professional manner.
The Hayes Family (owners) are on the clock 24/7. So, they are quick to respond to any situation. Which, Greg did 2 weeks ago for me, when I called him because, I didn't have any electricity. He came within minutes and fixed the problem-which we found out was due to the lightning storms we had had.Its sad when people take advantage of good hearted owners, trying to raise their own family, while offering a place for people to come and have a relaxing, fun time with their own families.

I totally disagree with some of the previous postings and reviews. My family and I have been seasonal here since 2006 and have never experienced a bad moment with any of the previous or current owners. The current staff is very polite, the pool is well maintained and the grounds are kept very clean. Any problems we have experienced like loss of power or water were handled quickly. The WIFI does not always work but why do you need that to have a good time. In regards to dog feces everywhere that is an issue that I have never experienced and if that were the case that is not a problem created by the staff that is an issue with people who can not follow simple rules and in most places against the law not to clean up after your pet, but ignorance is bliss. My family and I look forward every week and season to being here and enjoying the family orientated events, bands, Friday night movies, etc...
Yes some weekenders do get loud but the staff does tactfully remind these people of the rules and the problem is solved unlike other area camp grounds.
I would strongly encourage anyone to come stay here and enjoy a relaxing weekend or season.

My husband and I, with our Great Danes, have been camping at Prospect Mountain Campground for four years. From our first weekend we knew that we had found our second home. We have been camping here six to ten weekends a year. We have camped at a dozen or so campgrounds and truly, Prospect Mountain Campground is a GEM. The prices are below most similar locations, there are a variety of activities scheduled for both children and adults, the shower facilities are cleaned twice daily and are well maintained. All of our inquiries and/or concerns have always been addressed immediately.

We are looking forward to the spring of 2014 to start our fifth year!

Pat, Charlie and the boys

Its probably 2 and a half hours away from boston but it is worth the visit. The camp always has multiple activities throughout the week and the big events on weekends. The staff is always ready to help and is hard working. They just added laser tag for the 2013 season, it is a must try the kids love it and its only 5$ per person which is very cheap. Great service in the store and cool stuff in the rec hall like wii, ping pong, air hockey, and foosball. Overall a great place to camp with multiple things to do. A must visit.

My family and I decided to get away for the weekend (we live in Boston). We found prospect mountain online and decided to give it a shot since it was only 2.5 hours away. I am so glad we did! The check in was quick and we got a tent site by one of the ponds. The view of the ponds was gorgeous and was great to wake up next to. On Saturday, there was a Vegas night being held by the campground. We all had a blast playing the games and watching the prizes be drawn. All the staff members were very attentive and did not seem bothered by our numerous questions. We met the owners who were very nice and made us feel welcomed. The facilities were kept clean, especially considering how busy the campground was! The pool was well kept and we had a great time utilizing it! All in all it was a great weekend and we will definitely be coming back! I would certainly recommend this place.

We visited some friends at this campground a couple of weekends ago and it was horrible. Like another camper mentioned here on Trip Advisor, there is dog poop everywhere! In walking the grounds there was litter scattered all over the grounds. I would not let my daughter use the bathroom as it was so dirty! The help in the store was also very unprofessional and when we walked in they never even looked up to acknowledge or greet us. Once we got to the desk a young man looked up from his cell phone and then said hello. Lots of campers played music quite loudly which also made it very difficult for the younger kids to sleep. The mini golf is at best run down and not worth the $4 per game. We will not return to this campground as it is not family oriented and there is obviously no pride in the ownership of this property.

Hi Dawn,

We're sorry you had such an unpleasant visit. We do try our best to keep our campground clean and we make several rounds every day to pick up after our campers and their pets since we know some people forget to do so themselves. Likewise, we also do several checks on the bathrooms between the two daily scheduled cleanings to make sure they remain presentable throughout the day. As for our campers playing their music too loud, please allow me to apologize on their behalf. We do have strict quiet hours but throughout the day music volume should be kept low as our rules explain. I sincerely wish you had brought any of these problems to the attention of our staff so that we could address them and make our guests' stay more comfortable. To the contrary of your statement, we take a lot of pride in our business and work very long hours to maintain our property and are more than happy to fix any problems that somehow slip past us. We're very sorry that we didn't have the opportunity to address your concerns and fix them for you.
