My family has been going here for over 25 years, so this is not a pot shot. I could write a book about the rudeness and in justices about this place.

There are pros, this campground has moorings for boats, book way ahead, like a year in prime time. If you want a particular site, book a year ahead. The beach area is on a well traveled road so great care with little ones, but it is cleaned every night, it's safe and shallow for young kids. The dock is right there for boats to pick up passengers and how nice it would be if they'd just put a couple of bumpers on the poles to prevent the boats from knocking up against the dock while loading/unloading. There is a marina right next door so boat gas couldn't be closer. There is a mix of tent and camper sites, seasonal spots, a couple of log cabins and camper rentals. There are flush toilets and hot showers which are generally clean.

There are waterside sites and across the street and up the very steep hill are more sites. For seasonal spots you can be on a wait list and it's not first come first serve. If they don't like you they won't say no, you will just never get a spot. All the long term regulars there know you basically kiss butt for the privilege to pay them and use their facilities. As another family got larger, no matter how early my dad booked, he could not get his waterfront site. He is in his 80s and had to stop coming because he can't get up their hill. There is no parking off your site so no solution to this problem. One year they changed their cancellation policy from 2 weeks to one month and didn't tell us. My dad who had been coming about 15 years at the time had to cancel, did it just shy of the month and they wouldn't give him his deposit back. They changed the policy after he booked it an entire year ahead. The rental trailers got more and more run down so I went back to tent camping for a while. Then, after they got the 2 log cabins we started renting those. This last time when we arrived a truck was in our one parking spot. We wanted to unpack quickly as the driving rain and lightening storm was hot on our heels. A man drove by on a golf cart and my husband asked if he worked here, he said no. After my husband asked if he knew whose truck this was, the guy admits, he's the owner of the place and he doesnt know whose truck. That's the type of people they are. My husband now has to run down the hill to the office to get someone to find the owner of the truck. In the meantime, I am unloading from the bathroom parking spot. There is no power in the modular unit. We report that and are taught how to reset it. The power went out about 18 times in the one week that we were there and most times it took, 20 mins to 2 hours to get it to start again. Knowing how cranky and uncooperative they can be we gently complained about this, especially citing that my husband has sleep apnea and breathes through an electrical machine at night. It was regularly cutting out on him in the middle of the night and we had no choice but to get up and fuss with this using flashlights. I will add that other than a hair dryer, this is the only electrical appliance we added. After the first 4 days we inquired about a repair again. They said they tried to fix it but we weren't there to let them in. REALLY?! At that point, I gave them and their repair people total access and permission to go in as needed for repair. We're we actually supposed to sit in the cabin day and night, with no appointment to wait for a repair? Then, they tell us they've called several electricians and are having trouble getting someone to come. Finally I guess some one came, unbeknownst to us because I sent her an email after returning home saying although it got better thurs through fri it was still happening and I thought she'd like to know for the next people. Her reply ( feel like cutting and pasting the whole conversation into this review but won't unless they try rebuking this review) you should have told us earlier, it was repaired on wed. And the new renters have had no complaints. How would we know it was supposedly repaired? And if the new renters didn't complain it was because they know better than to bring anything up to these people, if they are regulars. The screen door didn't work either, the bed had a couple of popped springs, the kitchen table was very rocky, didn't trust it to not tip. There were a hand full of plastic cups, not one glass, no wine glasses. Now, the reason for the negative review after all of these years of coming here, getting abuse, WE are kicked out for next year! Apparently for trashing the place. She told us the cleaning lady was late with her chores that day because we left a mess in the fridge and we left trash and it took her so long to clean up. And, We also stole the coffee maker! The truth is I forgot a bottle of water and can of soda that I planned to throw in my beach bag at the last minute, that was the fridge mess. My sister grabbed it for me while the cleaning lady was still there. She said nothing of this mess. The trash was one kitchen bag of garbage neatly filled and in the receptacle, apparently we were supposed to put it out in the dumpster ourselves, where were those instructions printed? Lastly, the coffee maker was under the sink. I stashed it there because we don't drink coffee and wanted it out of the way. I forgot to put it back on the counter. Oddly enough, that's where the cleaning agents are kept, and she didn't see it? The cleaner who had to spend extra time cleaning after our stay?

We've only returned to this place year after year because our kids have grown up here, have gotten to know other campers that come the same time and because of the moorings for boats. We all know the way these owners are and put up with it for the good times with friends and family and for the natural beauty of lake Winnie, as we like to call it.

On my profile i say, i havent met a vacation i dont like yet. I guess this is the one. The vacation is only great because of the family time and the beauty of nh and the lake. My advice for anyone that hasn't stayed here before and doesn't have ties, GO Elsewhere, I'm done!

Room Tip: If you go bring your own camper or tent. When check in/out stay away from the owners. They like it that way and you will survive it that way.

Steve W, Owner at Long Island Bridge Campground, responded to this reviewResponded May 15, 2013

As one of the owners of Long Island Bridge Campground I feel compelled to respond this review. First of all I would like to apologize to the person who wrote the review for their perceived negative treatment that they claim to have received during their stay at our campground. As with any responsible business owner, our customers' satisfaction is always our utmost concern. There was, in fact, an unfortunate problem with the electrical breakers in the cabin during their stay. This problem was rectified as quickly as possible, although not as quickly as we would have liked. As to their other claims of a much more personal nature, I respectfully choose not to respond to them. I would like to say that we ask that you come try out our campground for yourself. I think you will find the staff friendly and accommodating. When we inform a customer that their patronage is no longer welcome, we do not enter into that decision quickly, or easily. Unfortunately, due to the very poor state that the cabin in question was left in we felt like we had no choice in this case. On a positive note we are looking forward to another successful, and for our campers, enjoyable summer. Please, come try us out, our campground is one of the very few left on the shores of Lake Winnipesaukee. Our business has been family owned and successfully operated for 46 years, and we are confident that your family's stay with us will be a memorable, and enjoyable one. Happy camping!

We go tent camping at this campground. We've been going every year for 4 years straight.

They improved the bathrooms and showers over the years. The showers don't require coins anymore - and that is a plus. Sometimes there are two or three showers out of commission - so that would be a plus if they'd keep them all operating.

The staff is good.

There are a few things to do on the campground, but we usually don't do much directly at the campground. We do use the beach that is across the street on the lake. It's a nice beach. Family friendly all around. The campsites for tents are really good and mostly in the wooded areas of the campground. This isn't just good for RV's and the non tent campers. It's fairly quite. It's located on the opposite side of the lake from most of the attractions like Wiers Beach. So it's about 30 minutes or more to get over to the other side of the lake. Jo Joes is a variety store just up the street and has most everything you'd need. You can get breakfast sandwiches at Jo Joes. They also have moorings that you can rent for your boat if you're bringing one with you. The public launch is only a minute away. You should book at least a few weeks in advance during the summer.
