We were disappointed in the condition of the RV. The top bunk was broken with loose sharp screws. The faucets leaked so the counters were always wet. I cleaned everything when we arrived because I wanted to be cautious about COVID germs, and I found that the surfaces were pretty dirty and many areas appeared to have been neglected for some time. Activities (swimming, boating) were good for kids.

We really enjoyed our stayed. With all that going on right now with civid. We had fun at the lake, the small hike. The girls really enjoyed the pool, and sprinkle area. Friendly staff, helpful. We had a great time. We plan to come back soon.

We had the best time during our stay! The campground was very clean and every staff member we spoke with was very friendly! We will definitely be back!

Overall stay was pretty good, the only real issue we had while staying in site 122 was the sewage aroma every 5 or 10 minutes. I imagine that it was associated with what looked like septic holding tank lids in the small grassy clearing behind our site. Otherwise my only other comment was that there was only 1 dog park area in the camp ground and it was poorly located "outside" of the campground.

We took our children with us on our honeymoon what a amazing place the people here are so great we loved it so much we're coming back in October.In these tough time KOA helps you forget about what's going on in the world. There is no judgment everyone is treated with kindness my children love the staff so much. Thank for all your hard work.

Great water slide &poolFun Fun Fun!

Wonderful time, terrific staff! Only negative comment is that one staff member kept allowing a 3 and 4 year old child who were each 6-9 inches below the height requirement to use the water slide. Last summer my son was 5.5 years old and 2 inches short and wasn’t allowed to ride. It’s either a safety issue or not and shouldn’t be based on individual decision-making or favoritism.

Disappointed. Very noisy - lots of golf carts zipping around. People next to us had loud music. We complained and staff quickly spoke to them. Only lasted a few hours. Music volume went up again. No supervision at pool - alcohol, jumping in pool. WIFI was very poor. No enforcement of masks in public locations. Premium site - have had much better at other KOA. three uncomfortable wood chair

The staff does a very good job with the overall upkeep of the grounds. The activities often get out of hand I think due to the staff's "it always happens" mentality. Management has a hands off approach, to a fault. For example a child of a seasonal renter entered the pool with a bloody leg, looked like he fell on his bike on the way down, when the front desk was notified, the manager did nothing

Love that place!

We had stayed there a few weekends before and our site was big. This past Thursday-Sunday we stayed. Never got escorted to our site! Site was too small for our camper, we could barley fit unable to have a fire with the trailer and truck in the site. Our site was not cleaned before we came as they usually are. Staff friendly some I knowledgeable. Ran by kids, no adult to be seen!

Love the place. Have visited in the past. The staff was masked, very courteous and helpful as usual. However, due to NH (non)rules (very dangerous), most guests were not masked and the weekend crowding was overwhelming. Being more at-risk, we tried to distance and wear masks when off our site. We were among the few. Now we wait to see if we have contracted the virus.

we had a wonderful time and look forward to booking next summer.

The RV bathroom didn't smell clean and did not look clean. The beds felt as though you were sleeping on a board. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. However there was an incident where a child approximately 10 years old got in the pool with blood running down his leg. We reported it to the store but nothing was done. Pool was not clear and you could feel sand on the pool floor.

We have stayed in various koas all over New England. This is our first time at Strafford koa and it quickly became one of our favorites. Clean, friendly staff, plenty of room between sites and great amenities. Definitely will be returning if we are in the area again.

Great people. We love the cabin we are staying in very clean very relaxing.

Loved our camping cabin! Air conditioning was a plus....the water splash pad was a success, so much to do. Everyone was covid compliant! Took out the paddle boats, enjoyed some good times in the beautiful playground with my two year old grandson! We will be back! Clean and we'll maintained place.

Campground was very clean. Staff was very friendly. Only improvement I can suggest is to add gravel to the bottoms of the fire pits.... the pits are so deep that it is the equivalent to trying to start a fire in the bottom of a well.... other than that, the stay was perfect.

Very clean. Very attentive staff. Pleasant experience. Just nit picking but being able to rent a golf cart for perhaps 4 hour blocks at less than the daily rate would be great but honestly that’s just personal preference. Really enjoyed our stay.

The people that work there are very friendly and accommodating. The only thing that I didn’t like is where the propane station was, and that is rig specific due to my propane is on the passenger side and filling station is on driver side on way in. There is a dip when turning into the park that rattles a lot of stuff in the rv when turning in. Otherwise a great place, clean and spacious.

Stayed in the new Safari Tent and Temps were in the 90s. Was a bit worried but with a cooler evening and fans they provided, I was very comfortable sleeping. The tent is real roomy and other than the fact the bed was not level, we really enjoyed it. Did not spend much time in there but the time we did was great I would highly recommend the Safari Tent and KOA Stafford as we had a great time. Ty

So fun!!

The staff are all super friendly. Grounds are clean. We love the activities. The pool and splash pad are fun , nice to have the pond for paddle boating and swim. We will definitely be spending many summers in the future here.

Always a great time. Beautiful sight and friendly helpful staff.

Campground itself was fine, very clean, friendly etc. Just were somewhat disappointed by the high price (same as Sebago resort) and nearness to "Winnipesaukee". We called the campground and asked if we could get to the 'lake', they said yeah you can walk there. They didn't express the lake they meant was their stagnant little pond. Winnipesaukee is a 30 minute drive to the most southern tip of it.

Perfect stop for a family . We love our safari tents right across from the lake , very clean, all the staffs are so friendly . We loved the pedal boats (the kids loved it more ) Can’t wait to come back ! Restrooms were always clean . I have nothing bad to say about it !

Very clean, friendly helpful staff and seems all sites have a nice level of privacy.

What a lovely campground! The staff was incredibly helpful and nice, the amenities were wonderful, and everyone there was respectful and friendly.

We had a premium site and would definitely go back.

We had a great stay! The campground is so well maintained and well run for mostly young people working there!

Great place for families!

Clean. Very good pool area. Great for kids. Only thing missing is food choices. Help was very nice, helpful and pleasant.
Jul 20, 2020
Flat, large, spacious sites. Loved the new wooden bench, chairs and attractive fire pit. Sand/dirt site could use gravel. Roads could be paved. Modern bathrooms, could use upgrading similar to other higher priced "resorts". Showers need lip so not to flood bathroom floor. Floors need to be cleaned more frequently. Appreciate the flexibility in check out time. Decent quiet campground, helpful staff

The towels I understand go to a laundry facility outside of the campground. You might want to tell them to put aside any heavily stained or towels that are more suited for clueing rags. Many of our towels were not suitable to use. Gives a bad impression even if you would replace them. I left our rv rental much cleaner than we received it.

Awesome place! Big sites, wonderful people who work there.clean. Friendly. We love watching all the kids going by and the doggys. Great job! Nice amenities.
Jul 20, 2020

We absolutely love camping here!!! The sites have plenty of space for our travel trailer & all the activities are in one central spot down by the camp store. Our boys, 8 & 10, are non stop all day between the pool, splash pad, lake, arcade, Gaga ball, $1 slushees at the store, bike rides, hiking on the trail, fishing & so much more!!!! We bring our own kayaks and keep them by the lake to use when we want throughout our stay. We are so impressed with the managerial staff that we can now call them friends after only our 2nd stay. Also, the recreation staff is amazing with the kids. They have nightly games and really put their all into it. They even participate & play tag when it's 95* out!!! Our favorite is when they have adult & candy bar bingo on the weekends!!! What I find impressive is immediately after someone leaves, staff is raking and cleaning the site, including cleaning out the fire pit. They also pressure washing the picnic tables. We find everything to be exceptionally clean!!! We also enjoy zipping around on the golf cart to get to know the campground a little better and have met many additional friends that way! *If there's covid concerns, all staff is wearing masks at all times & practicing social distancing* No cons what so ever!!!! Can't wait for our 3rd trip over Labor Day & a few during the fall. Thank you Strafford for everything!!!

I love this place. So much to do for kids and the adults. The pool is clean, the bathrooms are clean and great doors for privacy. I love the kayak rentals and the golf cart rentals. They are constantly finding ways to improve. I've been 8 times over the past 10 years. I do not own a site so I usually rent a tent site but last year I upgraded and rented an RV site.
