Campground Reviews

Aug 13, 2018
We greatly enjoyed our visit to Niantic! John made sure we had enough firewood and even built our fire to start. The town beaches are all beautiful, our site was very spacious and everyone was just so friendly. We were given great references for restaurants in the area.

The area was awesome! Mystic and Niantic are so sweet.. The campground however was in a state of flux. Our site had smelly mushrooms that my son had to remove. Our fire pit was literally on the road and we were confused who’s picnic table belonged to who. I do have to say the quiet hours were great I can see improvement is coming, but it did not measure up to the “usual” Koa stay for my fa

The staff was so friendly and helpful. Seriously, the best customer service I've ever gotten at a campground, and I've been camping for many, many years. A+++++

Very nice, clean campground, large, level sites and very helpful, friendly staff!!

The staff is great! John is very friendly and helpful. They are really working to get the campground up to par. They just finished a really nice dog park. The thing that I see needing done is the people who keep their RV's there full-time need to be made to keep them in better repair.

Very friendly staff.

We rate this campground 5 stars for the people working at the campground. This was truly a wonderful experience. They are working to improve the campground. Paved roads would make this 4 stars and paved sites 5 stars. They have a fenced dog park which is a huge plus. John is an awesome asset to this campground.

Good for a short layover. Fire pit set up which was nice. Bathrooms clean and adequate

This about sums it up - let's see if staff has nuts enough to let this review stand. If not - there are other ways to file complaints... you get my drift. This video doesn't show the poor drainage of the 'site' they stuck us in either - as it was a deluge of rain not long after this video was shot. Thank god my tent held up - remarkably well.

At least the father admitted the daughter was speeding. Obviously the daughter feels the need to get "revenge" and that's ok. To each their own. In my defense we escort EVERY camper to their site and if they were that unhappy we would have moved their site. There was no problem until the speeding and as a busy campground with kids I will take the review hits if it keeps one child from getting hurt

Staff was incredibly helpful, especially John and Bubbles. Campground needs a pool, but it is in the plan for next season.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for staying with us and we agree, Bubbles and John are excellent with our guests and enjoy what they do. I will show this review to both of them. have a great summer

Staff was wonderful, always willing to assist, it was great cause soon as you checked in you were brought to your site and the staff assisted with lining up camper and leveling. Grounds were kept well and being within mins of beaches was a plus.
Aug 08, 2018
We were in a pull thru, which was long enough, but we were unable to put our awning out because of the tree. Site was not level in back and we damaged our car getting off of the trailer

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

i am sorry for you problems while staying with us. The site issues are confusing as we have an Actual full size 18 wheeler on that site this week and the did not even need to unhook. I will be posting a pic of this rig if they allow me to as it is the most impressive RV I have seen. The site is 80 ft long and we did save a couple trees in the upgrade for shade. They are out of the way.

Clean sites, excellent bathrooms. John was excellent, attentive and friendly.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for staying with us I will share this review with John and I agree he is very attentive to my guests needs, Have a great summer

OMG! This is undoubtedly the worst of the KOACamps that we have seen yet. It was originally constructed in the 1940’s and no apparant improvements since then. The lots were not level and none of the 25 foot connections would reach to the utilities. The hosts gladly provided extensions, but what a hassle, The septic you didn’t have to worry about reaching because it wasn’t there.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Wow all that from a one night stay. The campground was constructed in the 70's and in the last year over $100k has been invested. I guess this guest missed the playground, renovated bathrooms, laundry, Office, store, Off leash pet playground, Cable TV, WIFI and the personal escort to his site. He is right we only offer great water disposal at the sites BUT we Don't advertise full sewer.
Aug 07, 2018
We loved everything about The Niantic KOA I recommended for my family and friends. I will stay there again.
Aug 07, 2018
Very friendly and helpful. Only reason 4 stars and not 5 is they lack a pool!

The staff here went out of their way to make us comfortable. They even lent us an adapter for a 15/30 amp conversion so we could get power to our tent. They gave us a buddy rv site for the price of a tent site. Took off 1 star as the roads are super narrow and fairly rough. Bathrooms were clean as was laundry room. No pool on site so you have to leave campground to swim. We would definitely return

This KOA is very convenient to I95. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Clean restrooms and lots of activities for families. The sites are very close together, with little privacy. This is a good place to stop for 1 or 2 nights when traveling on I95 or if you have children to entertain.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your fair review of my campground. I believe we offer some of the biggest RV sites in the area and as we upgrade sites we make sure they are spacious and level with the amenities today's campers look for. have a great summer
Aug 07, 2018
Bubbles and staff were great. Loved the dog run!! Sites were a little pricey for a site with no sewer. Campground was a little run down. Full timers need to keep their sites neater. I was in one of the new sites, Next time I will get a cheaper site. The only difference was new gravel. Not worth $45 for the weekend. It does look like they are trying to improve the campground.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for the nice words about Bubbles we agree he is great. The campground is not an RV Resort nor will it ever be. As for price the other campground in town is 75 per night. To get a RV site in our area for 45 night is a bargain as I price fairly for what I offer. The new sites are larger, have 50 amp power, new tables and fireplaces we are proud of them and plan to upgrade all site to this

Staff is extremely nice!

This place was horrible. This is not a campground but a trailer park. There are people in trailers living there for months Near our campsite there was garbage. Banana peels and a broken TV I paid for a site with electricity and there was no outlet There is no division between the campsites therefore no privacy I will never go back there again

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

This guest felt he could reserve a tent site for 1 night and invite all his friends for a party and was upset when we did not allow that. Its sad that this is the way some choose to get even. We are not a pristine campground but we are a real campground offering good sites at a fair price. We cater to families and will continue to do so. People looking to party will not enjoy my campground
Aug 05, 2018
The grounds were well kept and it was peaceful. They charged me more than what I should have been... granted, it was only about $3, but if they over charge everyone a little—that’s a pretty good skim off the top. The bathrooms near the tent sites aren’t the greatest—clean but none of the doors actually stayed closed. The dressing area is really really small. That said, I’d stay again if

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I apologize for your issue and upon investigating this I reinstated your reservation and refunded the $3.60. Although like you said it was "only about $3" fair is fair. The site you requested was improved to a premium tent site after your reservation resulting in the different rate and we did not catch the rate change and correct it for you before you checked in. Thank you for staying with us
Aug 05, 2018
Work in progress with great potential. Staff extremely friendly and accommodating. Some sites still need work but it’s wuiet and clean and we would not hesitate to return.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for staying with us and recognizing the work we have done and we will continue to improve every day until the campground reflects our standards. Enjoy the rest of your summer

Nice folks but to many permanent trailers of less than good condition. Was very quiet, good location to get to sights around the area.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for staying with us. As we just purchased the park last year we are working with our seasonal guests as they upgrade their trailers to conform to the new standards we put in place.

This is a really awesome campground. Sites are nice and big. Our site was raked before your arrival. Staff is friendly and extremely helpful. Just a great place to stay!

Great location for travelers on I-95, easy off and on the highway. Campground seems nice, staff was very friendly and helpful. Thought the price was a little steep for a site without sewer. No sewer connection at any site is the one bad point.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for staying with us and your nice comments. Although we do not have full sewer at the site we do have grey water disposal(sink & shower) at the site which is 90 percent of waste water generated and needing disposal. Black water is easily dumped at our dump station located on the way out

Very friendly, helpful and flexible stuff!
Jul 31, 2018
Hookups were in a very awkward position. They had to give us extensions for the electric and the cable. Bathrooms were not up to KOA standards. No benches in the showers and no hooks to hang towels clothes on. Trash receptacles at restrooms and office only. Long walk to throw out doggie bags from walks. GREAT location but needs work.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your comments. We are currently installing benches in the showers as we find one that works well. There are a minimum of 2 double hooks in every shower. There are several trash cans throughout the park and we just opened our NEW Kamp K9 off leash park. Have a GREAT Summer and we hope y

Staff was great and very helpful taking trash and assisting with pump out. Need some activities for older children . Great stay and improvements are noticeable.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for staying with us. I agree on the activities for older kids and we try but mostly teens want a WIFI code these days. have a GREAT Summer
Jul 31, 2018
Camp ground ll seedy and unkept. Too many permanent campers that do not take care of their camp sight.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are working hard to upgrade and it seems like every time we have to speak to a camper about safe speeds in the campground they agree with us the go online and trash us. I will always take these hits when it comes to safety
Jul 31, 2018
Other than the bathrooms and showers being in really bad need of total post-Katrina type clean-up we loved this campground and the people we met while there. I mean really, the bathrooms and showers not only needed top to bottom cleaning, they needed total do-over, shameful really because it detracted from an otherwise beautiful place.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Not sure where this camper is referring to. Our bathrooms were renovated last year and pictures are available on our website. Although he had nice things to say about the rest of it I believe he was reviewing a different KOA. I emailed to confirm but got no response

Great campsite with good Wifi and Cable TV. Very close to Rocky Neck State Park and hiking trails!!

Staff very friendly but rough around the edges. Too much public smoking by the staff. You can see signs of attempt mprovement. The office facelift looks nice. Too much junk. Broken mowers/golfcarts. 70% of the seasonal campers need to go. Many with trees growing from the roof. New sites are too crowded and not long enough. We really tried to make the best of it but moved on two days early.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have addressed the smoking by the staff. All the equipment is stored in a storage area not visible from the campground. I am not sure what you have against seasonal campers but here in the northeast we must have some to keep our overnight rates down. There are NO trailers with trees growing out of them and I disagree with 70%. Yours is the first and only complaint about the new sites
Jul 30, 2018
Another great stay at the KOA in Niantic...friendly and accommodating staff, I only wish I could have stayed longer!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank for staying with us again. Its exciting to get repeat customers as we rebuild to make this Connecticut's Best campground Have a GREAT Summer

"The John" lived up to his reputation. He was very friendly. The entire staff went above and beyond to make sure they were available if you needed any sort of help! The grounds were well maintained. Good location too!!

Very Happy with ur stay , so friendly people Thanks we'll back soon .

Big rig friendly. However, sewer hookup needed for these sites. Staff explained that black water hook up will be available next season. Well see. Close to mystic, the sound and casinos. Easy off I95.

Clean & quiet campground with no extras. Bubbles was very friendly & helpful.
