This is the 3rd year in a row that we have been coming, this year we had 17 girls and we had a blast. This campground has everything, from a playground to a Bar. We have so much fun when we come and we plan on going every year! Staff is very friendly, except for the guy that checked us in, he was very rude but we LOVE the owner so it's all good!

We stayed at Ellis Haven and found the staff to be very friendly and accomodating. Five Cabins were all beautifully updated this year (2011) and I would definatey rent them. The beach was clean. Bathrooms and showers were immaculate. Ellis Haven is my favorite family camping place in Plymouth. The activities director does an awsum job. I highly recommend this place.

We stayed at Ellis Haven for the long July 4th weekend. I was a bit nervous when I read the negative reviews... but figured we'd give it a go anyway.
I can see why people either love it, or hate it.
First... we were tenting in a seasonal site that hadn't been rented, so we were the only tent amongst semi-permanent trailers. I was a bit unsure of this at first, but our "neighbors" were REALLY friendly and welcoming. However... everyone did seem to be packed in like sardines in the regular tent/trailer rental sites. I'm very glad I wasn't over there. It was loud, had no shade, and not at all private. Our site (in the red area) was private, and shaded, and we had a very short walk to the bathrooms... but we didn't have a fire-pit. that was surprising to me for a campsite.
There were two catch and release fishing ponds... the boys LOVED fishing there.
The beach area for swimming was clean and enjoyable. It was crowded for the holiday weekend, but what beach isn't. There is a shallow dock for the younger kids to jump off of, and 3 other docks out deep for teens/adults. There is no lifeguard, so you MUST watch your own children. There is a LOT for the kids to do, and they do aim to please families.
Overall the pro's were that the campground was clean, staff and campers were friendly and helpful, and there was a lot for the kids to do.
The con's were that it is crowded, if you are in that central blue area you can forget about any privacy. The bathrooms were clean... but old and run down. They failed to mention that they had coin operated showers and that they were temperamental... I lost quite a few quarters. The airport traffic is loud... this didn't bother me, but I can see how it would bother some people. Overall it isn't a "bad" place. We were there for 2 nights (originally planned on staying 3) and that was enough for us. The kids had fun, but there was a lot of noise and traffic for someone who was looking for a quiet camping weekend. If we did decide to go back, I'd be sure to ask or a shaded site off the beaten path... and I wouldn't stay on a holiday weekend, and I'd remember to bring quarters!

My girl friend and I had recently left Cape Cod on a cross-country bicycle tour and got caught off guard by a series of large thunder storms in the Plymouth area. After watching a lightening strikeset the historic Mayflower ship in Plymouth harbor on fire, we realized that we needed to find a place to seek shelter for the night as the store was only getting worse. I quickly got on the phone with a staff member at Ellis Haven (the first campground listed in the phone book) who was able to not only give me accurate directions to the camp but was more than friendly when we arrived a half-hour later by hooking us up with the most convienant site without any hassle even though we had no reservations and the camp was completely booked. When we woke up in the morning, we were dismayed to have to pack up and continue our jounry only because we were leaving such a nicely equipped camping park. Had we been staying in the area longer, we would have easily been able to enjoy the numerous lakes and swimming ponds as well as the close proximity to Plymouth and the number of historic attractions in the area. We will absolutely be back as soon as we are back east.
