“Hasn't changed in 30 years. Not all for the better”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

I camped at Fearings pond 2 (or I as it is now called) with my family 30 years ago. Recently the people I had camped with have returned for reunion trips with our families. While the people are greaat the park is not.

Everything about the camp ground is is disrepair. The bath house is disgusting, the beach is more dirt then sand and the grounds have been totally ignored. There is so much erosion my wife severely sprained her ankle just crossing the street at night where the rain had washed a foot deep gully between the road and a site.

“FAMILY BONDING”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

It is camping at the rawest. Not all the shower facilities have hot water, but they will fix fast if they can. You can bring the big rig or pitch your own shelter. Shut out the world and get together again as a family.

We have gone camping here a few times in the past, the campsites are spacious & clean. Lots of trails to walk through, and the ponds are nice & clean!

“Mass Taxes at work”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

12 dollars a night? Yup thats your tax dollars at work. Great sites in a very remote location. Love going at the end of the season. Walking around the ponds seeing the leaves changing color. Wonderful bike trails and lots of areas to hike and explore. Bathrooms are rough but heck 12 bucks a night...
