As you enter the park the appeal is very low, the site was freshly gravel and was nice. the roads are very rough they either need to put gravel on them or pave them, they have no sewer hook up but they’re happy to give you a gray water drain hose into a French drain which helped.. the people there were very friendly, it was very pricey for what you got.

Very easy to find, great people, just needs to continue their updating to KOA standards but still a nice place regardless.

Bubble's and staff has made this a once again great experience for us, the kids, dogs and friends we had show up just cause they were driving by.. what a great place to go. This is definitely going to be a place we hit year after year

Our Boy Scout troop camped out in tents, the staff were extremely helpful and friendly. A Great place!

Roads to the camp site rough. Mud hole at the end of the road our site was on, had to drive through it. The site had trip hazards roots an stones. The moss around the utility hookup was like stepping on ice. But not all bad, the people were friendly.

Always a wonderful staff and a clean campground.

Would have liked sewer. Felt a bit cramped and like we were invading a lot of permanent camp dwellers. Staff was very accommodating and friendly. This does not mean that we will not return.

Not up to the KOA standards we have grown accustomed to.
Oct 13, 2018
This a difficult KOA to rate. The people were excellent and did everything they could to make our stay comfortable. With that said this KOA should never have had a KOA sign put up until some major improvements were completed. The roads are terrible, the utilities are in the wrong location, there is no sewer for the new premium sites and CG had to provide two extra 50 amps cords for elec.

People were very nice! Campground is old and needs some TLC. Rained a lot and the drainage was poor. Very muddy and soggy. Road within the park are very narrow. Didn’t use any of the public buildings, so don’t know how they are. Dump station was adequate.

This was our first RV experience and we were constantly delighted with the staff! They were always there to help us, not in an hour or so, but immediately! Staff always on campground if needed. We would definitely go back! Rated as 5, highest star!

MORE THAN JUST A BUSINESS. I have stayed at many campgrounds. I am a full-time RV'er. Many campgrounds will just take your money and show you to your site. John and Sally make you feel welcome at Niantic KOA. And so do their employees! They are ALWAYS there to help, ALWAYS greeting you, and AlWAYS willing to listen to what you have to say. I can tell the employees like working there too. It shows!

Amazingly accomodating staff. Could be more friendly. They made the stay awesome.

We enjoyed our stay. Nice campsite and easy access to beach and downtown Niantic. Bathroom showers could use a upgrade/facelift but were okay. Had a great time playing bingo with Bubbles after yummy icecream sundaes. Looking forward to going back next year.

The owners are putting in lots of effort to update the camp ground. They are great people to work with and very helpful. The location is enough in itself but their attention to rules and providing an environment where all campers have the opportunity to be satisfied makes it that much better. This is year two for me and I will be continuing for the foreseeable future. Very helpful owners and staff

The staff was very nice and helpful. It’s just hard to get a level site here. They had gotten 7 inches of rain right before we got there so they were still trying to tidy it back up. They did have a lot of activities so kids would enjoy that.

Our stay was wonderful. Bubbles took us to our site and helped set us up. He even brought us a garden hose for the grey water that we didn't have! Gloria was great also. We came to the office and ordered wood for our fire ring, her husband delivered the wood before we even left the office and got back to our campsite. The site was very clean and so was the laundry and showers. We will be back!

Your roads need to be fixed, Your water pressure there is none. KOA book stated "new", which was not true. Had multiple old rv's on property. Very overpriced! Too bad park does not match the friendliness of staff and great location to attractions.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Yes the roads need to be repaired after major rain storms and we do that as soon as the weather allows. We keep road repair material on site. I apologize for the water pressure but the city was having issues during your stay and we tried to keep adjusting for it. We are "new" which doesn't mean brand new park but new KOA. We are 30 PERCENT cheaper then the nearest campground which is 5 miles away

I've stayed at the campground for a while. Ever John and Sally(Owners) took over, they made a tremendous transformation to the campground. Improvements are being made each week. It is a nice place to spent a weekend or a family vacation. Yes, I would recommend it to anyone.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for saying that and we wish you well in the next chapter of your life

Great place. Loved that it is right next to Rocky Neck State Park and it's trails and beach. Facilities are really nice and clean and it is close enough to things to do. Staff was really nice and helpful. There was a drunk couple next to us in a seasonal site that were swearing at each other for long periods of time, yikes. So much for a romantic getaway!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for staying with us and I do apologize for your experience and have dealt with that guest and it will never happen again at that site. We have a zero tolerance policy when it comes to that behavior but unfortunately it can't be dealt with until they sober up. I hope you give us another chance someday to make it up to you. Enjoy the fall weather and safe travels

We informed the office that we would be arriving after midnight They said they would have an envelope on the door with our information. I didn’t even have the envelope opened when a gentleman arrived on a golf cart and said he was expecting us. He then lead us to our site right beside the very clean bathrooms, and gave a rundown of the campground. I will definitely recommend this campground.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for staying with us. i am glad we made such an impression in the few hours you were here. We do leave envelopes out for late arrivals and put you on sites that are easy to find and wont disturb others. Our security tries to stay out until the last guest arrives. Enjoy the fall weather.

Staff was very nice, and helpful in getting us into our spots. Bathrooms were in serious need of cleaning - women’s showers were ok, but floors weren’t swept. Many dead bugs in men’s room - over multiple days. Dog park and playground looked newer and nice. Dump station was good - fairly flat. Easy on/off to I-95. Close to Mystic and Groton for sightseeing. Hartford about 50 mins away.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I apologize for the bathroom condition and will take it up with the housekeeping crew. We dropped the ball. Thank you for staying with us and leaving this honest review, This type of review helps us improve, Enjoy the fall weather.

Staff appears to have no life of their own and patrol the campgrounds 24-7. Have to be very careful all drapes are closed if changing. Sit around yelling at people they feel are going over the 5 MPH speed limit, then proceed to come to your site and yell again. These people need to clean up their own act before telling others what to do, The KOA1 car speeds through well over 20 MPH but thats OK?

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Unfortunately another camper retaliating after being asked to follow speed limits and quiet hours. I can assure you nobody Yelled at them. We do patrol the campground for as late every day as needed and this camper kept us up late each night. I think they were disappointed we did not go to sleep until they went in each night. If you are looking for somewhere to party all night we are not for you.

Its a nice campground for a quiet stay,or as a base camp for sightseeing.There isnt much for kids to do,but there is new management,and they are making improvements.Friendly staff,and the camp is clean.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for staying with us. we do have a playground, bounce house and several outdoor games to borrow. On weekends we still do planned activities. In the summer we do planned activities every day. Enjoy the fall weather and safe travels

Was just for a weekend. We had a nice stay. Everyone was very helpful.

Just a scattering of old longtermers and mildewed trailer ‘homes’. Poor bathrooms. Lacks investment, effort, atmosphere. Avoid unless for essential one night passing-thru stops.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I apologize for the mildewing trailer you were next to. Unfortunately that guest died at home unexpectedly and we are trying to be sensitive as we work with his estate. They are having difficulty and asked that we do not touch his trailer That trailer will be gone by next spring. Enjoy the fall weather
Sep 20, 2018
I spent most of my time playing tourist and not in the campground. If you have a rig or long trailer I would not recommend it. The roads and spots are a foot lower than the surrounding areas with trees and electrical posts in the way of making turns. Give them time to do more upgrades.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for staying with us. Unfortunately your review misrepresents our park. You were in a section for 30 ft and below RVs. The large Big Rig sites are located in the back of the park and we have had 18 wheeler converted RV's stay with us this summer with no difficulty getting to or from the sit

Facilities are spotlessly clean and well-maintained, but the friendliest, warmest and most helpful staff make this campground truly memorable. There is plenty to do in the Southeastern Connecticut coastal area, but just relaxing in this campground is a pleasant experience. This campground has become one of my all-time favorites!

It was fine but needs To be updated
Sep 18, 2018
Our site was in a perfect location. Bubbles and Bob made our set up very easy for us they are always available when we need them. Having Bubble run the Bingo is a guarantee good time. It is such a pleasure to feel the warm welcoming when you check in. Gloria always has a smile and Sally and John personality and great humor makes you feel like family.

Great personal service! Concierge style: met us when we registered, escorted us to the site, lent us a new cable when ours was too short, helped us hook it up - above and beyond! Very nice sites: blend of sun and shade. Very clean bathrooms. Very clean and well-maintained dog park. Crystal clear cable tv, and good wifi at our site (a must-have for our teen.) Great location on the CT coast!
Sep 17, 2018
They were amazing! Full service startto finish!
Sep 17, 2018
Doing well: Check-in was quick and easy. KOA employees were very helpful and nice. Activities were fun. Restroom and campground facilities were clean and well maintained. Opportunities: Shower water could be a little warmer and see about benches in women's shower. Our first campsite was a little narrow with a big tree in the way of exiting the pull-through.

I got in late with my son,Johnny on the spot knew I needed a electric adapter,he brought one over,later on he stop by to see if I needed help putting up my tarp over my tent. Every one at this KOA and every one I have been too are always very helpful.We had a Gr8 weekend,we went kayaking and walked the beach,played pool and walked the trails.Igive you guys credit,if I ever have a problem there is
Sep 17, 2018
Nice, quiet, the people all were very friendly. The bathrooms are just okay.
Sep 17, 2018
Nice location. Very quiet. Nice staff. Big, level sites. They are working hard to improve this place. I wish some of the "seasonals" took more pride in their sites & campers. Some were so nice and others looked old & abandoned. Nothing wrong with old as long as it's taken care of IMHO. But we will be back. And Thanks KOA for the free night PROMO!
