Set amidst century-old maples, quaint stone walls, and reproduction colonial architecture, this family resort provides the best Connecticut camping has to offer. Here the prevailing breeze is fresh, and the westerly views are of rolling wooded hills and magnificent sunsets.
With modern facilities, the campground is beautifully situated on a hill among maple and apple trees. Most sites are pull-through, allowing for easy parking with additional areas offering everything from secluded tent sites to a three-acre field for groups.
No RV? No problem! With our speciality accommodations, including Camping Cabins and Deluxe Cabins, you may not even feel like you're roughing it at all.
Enjoy all the attractions in the greater Mystic Connecticut area, including Rhode Island beaches, Foxwoods Resort Casino and the Mohegan Sun Resort Casino. Mystic KOA is also near to some of Connecticut's finest tourist attractions, including the Mystic Seaport Museum, Dinosaur Place and the Mystic Aquarium.
This place, like most KOA’s, is very expensive and it seems that they do not spend much money on their sites. When you have to put 6 inches of leveling material under your front tires just to level your motorhome, that is unacceptable. The front and rear areas of sites are most important to be level. Add more dirt or grade the site so that they are level.
The WiFi was horrible even though the campground was mostly empty - might as well not even say you have it.
I cannot comment on cleanliness of the laundry room and bathrooms since our motorhome is self contained; however, it appears that it would be clean from the way the office was maintained. The staff were friendly. This place has fire-pits. They sell you 6 pieces of split wood for $7.00 ($$$$$). They offer quite a few cable channels.
Spent the 4th of July w my bio-dad here several yrs ago, don’t recall much except there were fireworks that hit several tents, fortunately no one was injured.
If you like close quarters and being welcomed by a booze bus, then this KOA is for you. The amenities seemed clean and fine, no complaints about the staff, but this KOA is not our cup of tea. The only good note for us is that it is convienantly close to the aquarium and mystic seaport visit that we were staying there for.
Call me old school, but when I camp, I want trees, space between sites, and privacy from neighboring sites. you won’t get that here. Think of row houses in any city and that’s what you get here. Bathrooms were clean, nice pool area and water slide. Best part of the campground was the Bar Car. A converted bus offering frozen adult and kid friendly beverages.
This KOA provides a lot to do for kids and families. The pool is small and usually crowded, but still very well kept. And then there's mini golf, hay rides, and lots of fun planned activities. The only drawback is the proximity to Interstate 95. You can hear the highway very well at night, particularly in the safari field. There are only a couple of "primitive" sites here, and I do not recommend those sites because they are very close to the dumpsters. We always rented a Kamping Kabin when we came here, which is a very basic cabin with bunk beds and a small refrigerator.
If you are looking for a big family friendly resort campground that's close to a lot of the area attractions, this place is for you. If you are looking for more of an authentic camping experience, you can save a lot of money by going to Hopeville Pond State Park which is not too far away.
staff was very nice. Lots of places around to go sightseeing. Most of the area isn’t dog friendly, so be careful if you take your pet. No problem at the campground
