Campground Reviews

Aug 14, 2019
This campground is always 5 star. The highways coming in could definitely use some tree work. Had a patio site and it was one of the best we have seen. This is not our first nor will it be our last visit to this campground. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. We had family on two adjacent campsites and a combined 5 grandkids. They were definitely entertained throughout our 3 day stay.

Wonderful again this year. We got the same three sites. Staff was outstanding as were the amenities. Unfortunately, one of the two bathrooms near is was down for the entire three day stay.

This was our 3rd stay here. We love it. The kids love the barrel rides, paddle boats and pool area. Everything is very well kept and super clean. We'll be back!

What a great place! The staff is kind and considerate. From the moment we arrived we had a great experience. Great store for fun stuff.. be an awesome parent and give your kids a few bucks and let them buy their own trinkets and snacks. We did the mining experience. seemed expensive, but really a great value compared to other rocks we have purchased. We bought ice cream snacks at the store on Sat.

For the most part our stay was pleasant. Site was quite spacious and level. At check in we were lead to our site by a very pleasant and competent employee. Only minus..check-in packet lacked cable station line up and we were not given our receipt. Had to go to the store to request them both.

We rented a trailer which was well set up and clean. Wonderful pond, pool and spray park. Great chance to get the kids fishing, have some independence and still be safe and relax. Very peaceful and relaxing for us, exactly what we had hoped for and more. No need to leave the park most days, and plenty of stores just 15 minutes down the road if you need anything.

Thank you! We know you have many options when choosing a vacation destination, and we are so glad that you chose us. Come again soon!

We have camp there several times as our daughter has a seasonal site there. Since it was sold and managed by Matt and his wife it has changed my total outlook on this campground. Thank you for taking it over.

Staff very friendly. The bathrooms were the cleanest I have ever experienced in the 6 years traveling in the USA. Staff would check on the bathrooms over 6 times a day and at late as 9:00 - 10:00 at night. The grounds were spotless trash cans everywhere you walked. We would order wood and ice to be delivered to our campsite and it took only minutes for the delivery every time we called. EXCELLENT!

We had the best time. The deluxe cabins are great. Kids loved the pool, spray area and arcade. We enjoyed the pond. We caught close to 20 Bass in our short stay. Such a wonderful time.

Through the weekend was great but once Sunday afternoon came along the trash cans were overflowing and the facilities were not maintained. Aggresive dogs in site nearby also.

Thank you for taking the time to review our campground and letting us know in what areas we can improve. We have met with our maintenance team to discuss our procedures for the end of the weekend.

wood over priced /fire pits to deep/ sewer guy had clean filter while we were there/ lots to do

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are glad that you were able to find lots to do at our campground. Unfortunately, the septic filters do have to be cleaned once or twice during our camping season, but we try to schedule it during the middle of the week at a time that's not normally busy.
Jul 22, 2019
My husband and I had a great stay and are hoping to become a seasonal here next spring. The sites are perfect, pool was amazing, and the staff was very friendly.

We stayed in a deluxe cabin (2 people), and had a great time. The only improvements we could suggest would be to install a smaller sink, to make the bathroom a bit more manageable, and somehow make the table/stools a little more accessible to smaller/shorter people - in the rain we had nowhere to eat, and improvised by using the stools as tables and sitting on the bench; it was not comfortable.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your review and the suggestions! We appreciate when guests let us know how we can improve their experience. We hope you visit us again soon!

We will stay again but I was disappointed that we had to pick up 15-20 cigarette butts that were in our gravel when traveling with my kids and dogs.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your review! We strive to leave each guest a beautiful, clean site upon arrival, but this time we fell short. We will be speaking with our grounds department to make sure it does not happen again.

All of the koa staff were amazing to us and helped with all questions and concerns that arrised. Charley and her husband were awesome. The campground was so well organized and cleanly, as well as our rv rental and we couldnt have been happier with our stay. We were former Middleboro, Ma koa guests but we will now we coming back to the Strafford Koa for future camping trips.

This was our second trip to the Strafford KOA. We really like this campground. It's small but has lots to do to keep the kids busy. The place is immaculate as well, which is a plus. Only complaint was not getting the sites that we had originally booked when we made out reservation, but we still got to be with our friends, so it was OK.

Your sites are way to expensive! You should discourage people that don't have children from staying there.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

While we do offer many things for children, we are continually adding more events for adults as well. I hope that you will try us again!

I am frustrated that when I went to check in the tax hadn’t been removed from my reservation. This was something I questioned opening weekend when I there and I was told they were working on fixing it. Disappointed you didn’t have it fixed upon arrival.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Hi Laura, It took a while to get it all figured out, but the tax issue in the reservation system has been corrected and all affected reservations have been adjusted. We hope to see you again soon!

A really great campground. Everything feels really new. We stayed in a cabin. I feel like we were the first to use it. There is a mini fridge, microwave, Kuerig (they even provided the K cups). My kids loved playing gaga ball, the beach, the boat rentals on the lake, slide in the lake, the pool was good, the slide was fun. Staff was incredible. Store has all the things you may have forgot, or if you want to treat yourself to a snack. Large sites. Friendly people. BIG area for camping. Lots of trailers. Clean bathrooms. What am I forgetting?!?! We had a great experience and plan to book again for next summer.
