Facilities and campground was great. Our problem were our neighbors who were drunk and played music until 2:30 in the morning. I avoided any problems so we just tried to go to sleep and ignore.

I was there after the busy summer season. My tent sight was large and near the water as requested, however it was muddy and very musty/moldy smelling. I have stayed at other KOA's and find them to be very consistent and well maintained. As a side note, I checked in after the office closed and got settled in just fine, but it would have been nice to have staff check in with me the next morning.

What a beautiful campground! The bathrooms were spotless and staff were great! We can't wait to stay next year!

We have been coming here for 6 years now and love it! Lots for the kids to do with boat rentals, pool, slide, fishing and splash pad. The wifi AMD arcade is great for the rainy days. Campground and bathrooms are very clean and well maintained. Staff is friendly. Bathrooms were a bit overcrowded this year but was excited to see they are building more for next season!

All the facilities were extremely clean and well kept. The tentsite near the pond was right opposite the very toddler friendly playground which was really convenient. Everyone who works at Strafford KOA was very friendly and helpful. The dishwashing station wasn't on the map so they should mention where it is at checkin. The seasonal campers were really friendly, lots of really nice kids!

Location was excellent, always something for our 6 year old son to do, this was his second camping experience and he loved it. The pool, splash pad, water slide, fishing, scheduled activities made for some great memories! Thanks for the friendly staff KUDOS to Everyone!

This camp was very nice and quiet. The pool and water area were a lot of fun for the kids.

We stay in a tent, while the rest of our group stays in various campers. Your facility is lovely for camping trailers, not so much for tent camping. In particular, the 1 tent site we were assigned shouldn't really be a site at all. It's basically a walk-through from/to the bath house, has little shade, and the fire ring is essentially on the road. You only have 2 nice tent sites.

We loved how clean everything was kept. Bathrooms, bathhouse, campsite, kids playground, and pool was all very nicely kept. Everyone at the site followed the rules, and were very friendly, even as you walked by people would greet you.

Great staff. Beautifully maintained campground with many amenities. Something for everyone. Near two major shopping outlets and restaurants. 40 minute drive to south end of Lake Winnipesaukee.

We had lots of fun. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The "lake" was a little disappointing. We did rent a kayak and a peddle boat and had fun. However, when booking our reservation, the picture made the lake look so much bigger. Great campground. The juggleing show was awesome!

I gave a 5 star because this campground is AMAZING. We come up every year with a softball team for the States and you always help us set up sites for all of us!

Nice management, clean bathrooms, lots of trees and a pond.

Staff was very hospitable and accommodating. We will be back

We stayed at a tent site with electric and water right next to the lake, great location and services! We were a bit off-season (mid-May) so not much going on for the kids. Hot water ran out after about 10 minutes in the central bath house, so a few of us had to make due with cold showers. Not sure how this happened, I would expect the location to have a much larger capacity for hot water use.

Great place. Clean, well kept. Staff very friendly and accommodating. Will visit again.

They made an effort to be accommodating to campers with activities & games, but it would be nice if it had a more quaint feel. There were only 4 tent sites and the rest are all large RVs which was a little off-putting. Bathrooms are very clean and well lit. There was a very small hiking trail which seems unfinished. If asked I'd say it was good, but I wouldn't go out of my way to recommend it.

Needed more camping stuff for everyone. Decaf coffee pods and snacks. Quick to consume items. Over all this place meet our needs. WI'll come back next year.

The site allowed up to 7 people there was four of us and we added two friends last minute so I don't understand why we had to pay $60 for them for two nights I feel like I was gypped. Most families do not have five kids So I don't understand why there is a two adult limit and anymore than that we have to pay. I was very upset about that and because of that alone I will not return here.


Thank you for camping with us.Sites are a total for 2 adults and there children the additional adults that you invited would pay the $15.00 per adult fee for each night they are here which is less than half the regular site rate.

Our family loves this campground. My grandchildren can't wait to return.There's so many choices of activities. Fishing, a pool, water slide, playground, bocce ball, game room, and more. Every where I looked I would see their employees working to keep the grounds and bathrooms super clean and neat. The staff and owners are helpful and friendly. We didn't hear any loud campers. A great time by all.

This is our second visit with our church group and enjoyed your campground. We were pleased to see a few less golf carts zooming around. Your bathrooms are beautifully clean and in good working order (although we wish the shower head was less misty). We are in the minority as tent campers. We wish you had a few more tent sites in green, quiet, shady, less lit sites near rest room.

Staff was very nice. Everything was clean. No toys at all allowed in Pool was very disappointing but overall I would stay again
Aug 12, 2017
The campground amenities were nice for families with children. However, the activities that took place during our stay were very minimal (almost like they did the bare minimum to say they had activities). Customer service was subpar. You felt like just another number. I was told I could not check in for over two hours for "cleaning," and when I got to my site there was trash and dishes still there
Aug 12, 2017
We enjoyed our stay a lot. Very impressed by how often the bathrooms were cleaned. My only complaint is that the name implies that the campground is on Lake Winnepesaukee. It isn't even close to the lake.
Aug 10, 2017
We had a great time. Campsites are nice and large, kids loved the water area and water slide. Did find the prices to be a little higher than at other campgrounds, especially the wood. The bathrooms are super clean, hope your cleaning person receives good pay. Very nice campground with a lot of activities for kids.

Facilities were very well maintained and extremely clean. There were a lot of staff on hand and they were friendly and helpful. The water features and pool were great for children.
Aug 04, 2017
Super clean. There were not too many people around, which was nice. Plenty of options to stay busy. Loved this campsite. Would definitely return!
Aug 03, 2017
The say was okay. It was a bit difficult to find (more signage would be nice). We also booked this campground rather than others near our route because of the slide, but we got there after five pm. The staff at the pool also seemed crabby.

This was our worst koa to date! Owner delivered wood to our campsite and was very unfriendly and even yelled at her daughter, ppl setting up camp beside us past 11 pm, pool patrol constantly yelling at our kids ( in a very rude way) . We only stay at koa but will never return to this one. Oh ya my son was stung by bees plugging power cord in at our site from a nest on outlet! Place is a joke.

Wonderful facility Great staff

The campground was beautiful, the staff was amazing && the bathhouses were always clean! Not to mention the woman working diligently to keep the bathhouse clean was the sweetest woman I've ever met! Best KOA we have ever stayed at!!
Jul 24, 2017
We had a great time. Staff was always welcoming and friendly, courteous and kind. Bathhouse was always clean and smelled nice! Laundry room was clean. Pool area and game room also clean. Our tent site (T14) was quite spacious. The pedal boats were great. We had a lovely time. Thank you!

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.
