Although this park did not open officially until the weekend, the owners were kind enough to let us stay for one night 2 days early. The Berkshires can be chilly in late April! This is a straightforward campground, lots of grass with the usual hook-ups along a nice stream. There is a lot to see and do nearby. The campground has a good store. The parking spots are on grass so they aren't completely level. There are lots of seasonal trailers and 5th wheels which seem to stay in place, because many of them have porches and other amenities added on. These are neatly kept. The people who run the place are helpful. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Staff very courteous as previously mentioned. Campground was well kept. Cable TV available for $2 per day. We had a full hookup site with 50amp. More to see in the area than I expected. Bridge of Flowers in Shelburne Falls was great, also a great coffee house that had a blues band one evening that we really enjoyed. The swimming pool was closed, but they have a solar system set up to heat it. There is a nice little restaurant right at the entrance to the campground. We would definitely return. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We had spot #113 which was shaded and out of the way (W&E only, no sewer). The campground was neat, clean and well maintained. The staff courteous and efficient. Highly recommend this campground. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Camped for a couple days in a 25 foot rig. Mostly open sites, some are in the woods. Fairly level grass sites, I had water and electric. Nice big clean pool, clean restrooms, quiet night in the Berkshires close to Shelburne Falls. We actually added some days here instead of heading directly up to Vermont, and will come back again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Easy check in. No surprises. They did check the dog's rabies certificate. Well stocked store. Cinnamon rolls in the morning were enjoyed. Level pull through, we had a wooded site 86. Nice tent sites separate from RV's. Big open safari field for groups-very sunny. Seasonal around a little old, but neat. We would camp here again for activities on the Deer field river. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice campground, friendly owners, quiet though we were there in off season. We enjoyed the proximity to Shelburne Falls and the Mohawk trail. Lots of seasonals, we didn't see too many this weekend but imagine in the high season it might be a little overwhelming, I can say those sites were well maintained. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We were here over Labor Day weekend and it was wonderful. Site we were in was well shaded and level. We had full hook ups and Wi-Fi was accessible from the site, though a little slow at times. Very family oriented and seasonal campers were extremely friendly. Only suggestion for improvement is to heat the pool. We will put this on the list to return in the future. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I found this campground very friendly and a great place to go with a family. Our son enjoyed our 2 visits. Quiet time is from 10pm till 8am, and on both visits it was indeed quiet. The owners do a great job keeping the campground up and they were very nice and also friendly. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

This was a very nice park. We parked on grass. We didn't have a sewer hookup but some sites do. Wi-fi access included. We also had a clear sky for the satellite. During the season there are lots of things to do in this park but we were here just before they closed for the winter. They have a store and a grill so you can get a burger if you don't feel like cooking. They were having a breakfast the morning we left and planned activities on Columbus day weekend. We would come back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground has both open field and wooded sites. The field sites are side by side hook ups, the others pull-thu. The owners are very friendly and helpful. The campground is clean, especially the rest rooms. It also has most of the basic amenities. Although side by side hookups are not my favorite, I would return to this campground because of all the other positives. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I like an open field campground, and that's what this is. Sites are pull though (all grass field) and are arranged such that RV's alternate back to back then front to front. There are new owners this year (Late 2005) and they were helpful and nice. Not much in the way of activities, but nice swing set/jungle gym. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

Not real impressed with this campground or the people running it. Lots of sites open and they put us right next to another RV, which wasn't necessary, there were plenty of sites open the whole time we were there. Have a problem with pets that stay in your RV due to past experience,understandable. The people running it just don't seem very friendly at all. This is an open lot no gravel, all grass sites. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The layout of this campground has changed do to Hurricane Irene. The swimming hole that was at least 6' deep last year is only about 3'. We couldn't believe the damage that was done. A lot of the sites near the river are carry in, carry out. Sites 1 through 12 have been changed to group sites 2 through 4. I don't know why this is, as they still look like individual sites. We still really enjoyed our stay and hope to be back next year. Two of my children and I did the Zoar Zipline and had a ball. It's expensive but was worth it to see their faces. Better than an amusement park if your into the outdoors. Helpful hint, the showers in the camping area have a button that constantly needs to be held to get water, but the showers by the cabins has a regular hot/cold lever with constant flow. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
My family loved this campground. Our site was clean and level for our camper. Showers were kind of awkward with a push button that had to be held all the time that you wanted water. The swimming hole was a lot of fun for the kids. We went tubing down the Deerfield river near by which was really cool. We will definetally go back again. The dump station was working when we left. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Beautiful natural setting: stayed here 3 days while exploring northwestern Massachusetts. Lots of notices about bear activity in the area and bear boxes for storing food: but we didn't see any bears. Some sites are more level than others. Bathrooms are old but clean. The showers need work, pitted concrete floor and the water mechanism is awkward. The dump station was not available for use when we were here. It was awaiting repair and apparently had been for some time. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is our favorite place to camp in Massachusetts. This campground is in a pine forest next to a scenic river along the Mohawk Trail. We had bears at our site both times we stayed here. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a State Forest so, as expected, the sites are all wooded (mostly pine). The cabins are small but set away from the main camping areas and always clean. All of the cabins have wood stoves and electric service but none have water, bathrooms or cooking facilities. Common use bathrooms/showers are a very short walk. Some cabins have paved roads directly to the cabin. The remainder have solid, short dirt/sand roads. Cabins have furniture but no other furnishings. You must provide all of your own cookware, dinnerware, bedding, etc... Restrooms are cleaned twice a day and very little litter manages to stay around for long anywhere in the Park. Cabins all have firepits outside as well as picnic tables. Most have benches on the front porches for sitting as well. Cell phones do not work within the park and the only phone available is a pay phone near the check-in station. TV stations are non-existent and radio stations are limited. Park staff are friendly and helpful. Plenty of hiking trails are available although some of it is through very rugged country. There are occasional activities within the park but many areas for fishing, rafting, kayaking, etc.. in the immediate surrounding area. While pets are allowed in the park and on tent/trailer sites they are no longer (after June 2007) allowed in the cabins. Bears and raccoons are nightly visitors during spring/summer months. We camped here in a Campground Cabin.
This campground is an undiscovered jewel in the rough. The sites vary greatly and Reserve America does a pretty darn good job of describing them. Water is available as common taps shared between sites but you could fill your tank as often as you have a place to put the grey/black water. Great dump station, Excellent rest rooms. Helpful staff. We had tents and a motor home and had reserved 5 sites. This campground is built on the side of a mountain and has various levels with good paved road access to each area. Good dirt roads to the specific sites. Enjoyed the River and its "pool" (a swimming area built right into the river) Water a bit cool but, after all, it was Spring in the Western MA Mtns. Beautiful area directly on the Mohawk Trail. Several places to go white water rafting in the (less then 15 miles) area. Would definitely recommend and plan on returning. We camped here in a Tent.
