We stayed in a rental camper. (First time) usually we rent a cabin. Camper was fairly new. Was a little tight with just two people. Had a problem with no heat. Staff responded right away. Very courteous staff. Mattress was awful. Campground was clean and had plenty of scheduled activities.

Although the cabin layout is NOT what was pictured, the staff made every effort to make things right. Very much appreciated for their effort and looking forward to next season.

Heather and her family were extremely helpful and personable, as hosts. The campground, our RV rental unit and the facilities were clean and updated. Gary helped us settle in for the week, making us feel right at home. It was a delightful time with our extended family in a beautiful, quiet setting!

We are so glad that we could be a part of family memories being made! That is the best part about working at a campground. Come again soon!

Was disappointed with the fact service was only contactable at pool. The fishing pond is alot smaller then anticipated they must stock on their own and I only saw a small fish and turtle caught. Fishing from the shoreline is impossible with the amount of weeds very frustrating for small children.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I am sorry that the fish weren't biting for you when you were here. I encourage you to come again and give it another try as I've seen many fish (including some pretty big ones!) caught in there this summer.

I stayed in a rental trailer with my 12 year old granddaughter and her friend. I found the trailer clean and well equipped. The staff was friendly. The campground was well maintained. The girls liked the pool, and water slide and boating options available. We had a good time and I would highly recommend this campground to others.

I cannot praise enough the friendliness, helpfulness and professionalism of the staff, the cleanliness of all the facilities. We had some problems with the rental RV which were not the fault of the campground but rather design issues of the RV Some issues could not be remedied during our stay but others were tended to immediately by staff. I would not hesitate to stay there again.

Initially our RV was not ready however the staff was excellent and let my boys use the boats to fish and worked very quickly to get it ready for us. The staff were great and appreciated my patience. It was a great experience !! Thank you

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.

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 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!

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.

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!

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.

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!

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.

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. :

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

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!

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

Very clean. Friendly and helpful staff. Pool was warm, between that and the splash pad it kept the kids busy for hours. We stayed in the camp owned RV. It was brand new and it was fully stocked. Our family had a great time and highly recommend.

It's too bad we didn't have the outside furniture or time for the kids to use the boats due to the rain. Next time I think we will stay in a cabin the RV was a little tight for 4 teenagers.

We hope that you come back soon and give us the chance to earn that 5th star!

We rented an RV and it was great. The RV was clean and had enough room. Outside the RV, there was no deck, table, chairs, or grill. We had to run out and buy camping chairs and a grate for the fire pit. However, I think they were still in the process of completing the sites so just double check before you head up. This is a wonderful campground and we will definitely be back!

We loved our stay and the new management!! We had a wonderful time! The only critique I would give is that there were so many golf carts and so many dogs! Some sites had 3-4 dogs who barked endlessly. Other than that, we loved it!

Campground has a lot to offer families. Not as deluxe as other KOA deluxe cabins we have stayed at. No gas grill makes cooking harder for a family. Definitely not enough blankets for a cold spring. We have stayed at deluxe cabins at other KOAs and there was at least 1 real bed and full linens. Friendly staff. Nice game room. Store was not stocked with milk eggs etc ATM down. A lot of trips to town

We just stayed one night as we were traveling, we stayed in a cottage and it was comfortable. This is a place that has many permanent seasonal guests.

Beautiful, scenic campground with top-of-the-line amenities ... Deluxe RV sites have concrete pad, outdoor dining table/chairs, utility table for grill. Great staff and well-stocked store, too. Would definitely come back and recommend to others.

We had a blast with our kids and friends for Labor Day Weekend. The grounds were beautiful, the cabin was immaculate, and the activities were above our expectations!

This was the third year our family has stayed at the Strafford KOA. The staff are great, helpful, respectful, patient, and hard working (available, never sitting around). The grounds are well kept, pool and beach area always clean. Family oriented, gets better every stay, can't wait for next year!

This KOA is awesome, they have tons of stuff to do and tons of activities planned to keep the kids busy every day! Location is clean and modern, affordable prices and friendly staff and campers! We've been to tons of camp resorts, this was one of the best family friendly resorts by far!

Never had such a good experience with KOA! KOA is usually by the noisy roads, but this is a jem. Friendly staff, clean bathrooms. We had a tent spot: wide, a lot of trees around. Kids friendly. A lot of activities. Defently will be back!
