Campground Reviews

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.

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us and were able to get in some good fishing! Come again soon!

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.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

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.

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.

Thank you, Heather! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us.

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!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are so glad that you and your grandchildren had a memorable time at our campground. I hope you will all be back 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!
Jul 14, 2019
I must say staff was beyond friendly and pleasant the campground end to end was extremely clean I would definitely stay again if I was to say any negative it would be the game room need ac omg hot in there

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your kind words! We are working to see what can be done about the temperature in the arcade.

We had a great time. My grandkids had a blast in the pool, they loved watching Grammy learn to drive a golf cart. We found all the facilities to be exceptionally clean and the employees are awesome. I only wished the rental RV was a little larger but we were outside most of the time so we managed. We are looking forward to coming back in August!

Everything was great the only thing I would say negative is the name lake Winnipesaukee should not be on there because like an hour away . The campground was really nice clean and spacious and awesome for kids .

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are very glad that you enjoyed your stay with us, Brian. Most KOAs are named by the closest large landmark. We are in a bit of a remote area, so ours is a little ways away. Many of our guests do not mind the half hour drive to Alton Bay which is on Lake Winnipesaukee.

Always the most pleasant staff anywhere

Our stay was great but the trailors were very small and cramped size was very deceiving looking at them on line

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are glad that you enjoyed your stay with us! Some guests find the cabins to be roomier. Perhaps you could try one of those when you visit us again.
Jul 08, 2019
Clean campground. Staff were very friendly. Pool area was nice. Arcade was extremely outdated. Seasonal campers made us feel a little unwelcome. No enforcement what so ever on speeding drivers in the campground. Probably won’t return.

Like this campground and have been staying there annually for past 8 years. They made some changes with adding trailer rentals which took away from the transient sites. Used to stay road up from the campground, now across from the bathrooms near the back where there is zero privacy. Nice for a weekend stay with the kids to use the pool and water slide but not what it once was.

Loved cabin! Lots of fun activities for kids! It would be nice to have small mirror in cabin possibly on one wall located under television. Dishwashing sink located near cabin 25 is extremely inefficient. Water barely trickles out; it's cold. Makes it difficult to get soap off/get the dishes clean. Caleb efficient but could focus less on us "trashing" cabin during our check-in and smile. :

Thank you for your feedback! We have been able to fix the wash sink, and we are looking into the possiblity of adding mirrors in the cabins. We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us, and we hope to see you again soon!

This is one of our favorite KOA's. Very clean. Bathrooms are clean. Staff is exceptional here. They are always going by on golf carts and very accommodating. Pool was clean and well kept. Site was immaculate upon arrival. Only issue is the internet connection is very slow. I guess it's good to "disconnect" though! We will be back this fall.

Thank you for your kind words! We are working to make upgrades to our internet, and we hope it will be better when you return.

Our stay was very minimal being that we were on a road trip and just passing through. We came in to eat, sleep and move on the next morning. But to say the I really liked our site... Very clean and quiet. Not right on top of the next camper. We lucked out with the bathrooms right across from us... They were nice and clean and I gave it a "Smiley Face" on the way out. Thanks for a nice spot

I chose to leave my linens at home. For an extra fee, I was provided with bedding/pillow, & towel for a $20 “rental” fee. A bit pricey. At checkout, I saw that my 20 day plate was gone from my car. I didnt have the form that listed the plate number, with me. I took an Uber to a dealership for a new one. That took at least 45 minutes, round trip. These things aside, the campground was nice. Cle

my wife and I were seasonal here going on 5 years. great place and made life long friendships. unfortunately a corporation bought the campground and 3 weeks before closing 25 families where tossed out to make room for transients. people who have been there for 20+ years spent there last weeks braiking down screen rooms and decks trying to figure out how to move and were to store campers. others were told they were taking there sites and if there was an opening they could move to that site. the new managers, heather and Matt are great people and we wish them well. but if you’re looking to go seasonal there beware- they could purge more campers next year.
