Firewood and pizza delivered to tent site was a major plus, allowing us some time to enjoy the pond and pool on a one night stopover at a tent site. All 4 tent sites are close to bathhouse, which was goid and bad-The septic cleaning service truck arrived at 7:30 AM to dig out and pump out septic system! We had to evacuate the tent and area for an hour because of the stench! I’d recd do at chko

Facility is ok but they don’t care about the enjoyment or comfort of their guests. We travel all over at KOAs and this one has by far the rudest staff. The gm are quick to make excuses and blame others but when they condone one of their staff members leaving their young kids (about 2, 3 & 4yo) unattended by the pond and then ask us to leave when we voiced concern it’s bad. Always an excuse fro

I LOVED the campground. Everything was so pristine and clean, I thought it had just been built. Then I asked and found out they just celebrated their 50th anniversary, never would’ve guessed it! Only complaint I do have is we stayed on a tent site, there was no stand up charcoal grill or grate over the fire for cooking and our site was very rocky and had a lot of roots, Besides that we Loved it!

This was my family’s first stay at a KOA resort. We went tent camping for only one night but were very impressed with the cleanliness and friendly staff! We’ll definitely be back and will recommend to friends and family! Thank you!

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.

7 dollars for 7 pieces of well seasoned wood went up so fast had to buy 5 bundles for one night campfire otherwise we loved the site was clean and the staff friendly

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.

Some of the best camping we have done in years! My family has lived 10min from this place for years and despite knowing it existed, has gone under our radar. Wanting to stay local this year we decided to try it. Despite its small appearance, it makes up for alot. The place was clean and updated. Staff were every friendly and helpful. Lots of activities for kids and adults. Covid was a worry before going but went away quick. Everyone stayed safely away, even near the pool and pond we always had lots of space to relax and swim. We also enjoyed the fact adult swim was enforced (gone to places where it has not) The camp sites where clean and large, also had small grass yard which was awesome for the dogs. Speaking of dogs one of the many reasons we came here was because it was dog friendly. Our girls (two Huskies) had a blast and loved seeing the other dogs at camp. The only bad thing I can say is. I wish they had a hot tub, but that is no fault of theirs. Definitely a new favorite spot.
