Rustic campground in a small state forest

It's very hard to find information about this campground which is closed for 2020. When open, it's for walk-in only and you need to check in with Erving State Forest (about 15 miles away) first, but there is a phone number to contact them. The entrance road is marked with signs, but I accidentally drove past it the first time, but Google Maps took me directly to it. It's a long curvy road that ends with a small parking lot at a T junction. In Nov 2020 the road to the left is closed because a bridge is out; the road to the right leads to the campground and Gate 36. This was gated in Nov 2020 as the campground was closed due to Covid-19, so I'm not sure if they'll open it in the spring.

Some of the sites are definitely walk-in, with a narrow trail leading from the road. It's possible to park at other sites; I'm guessing the gate at the beginning of the road toward the campground is open when the campground is open. If so, high clearance vehicle is definitely preferred.  There's no map on the website and the one I found online  elsewhere was outdated/incorrect and the one painted on a campground board could be clearer. I didn't find all of the campsites.  Bring your own water. There is a composting toilet located near the group site in the field.

If you continue past site 15, you'll head through Gate 36 out toward Soapstone Hill which offers a great view of Quabbin Reservoir and sunsets.

This website provides some general information about hikes and exploration in the area that surrounds the Quabbin Reservoir. https://quabbinvalley.wordpress.com/  You'll find cellar holes throughout, remnants of the towns lost in the 30s to create the reservoir.

Cell phone coverage is faint to nonexistent on Verizon. You may want to download offline maps before you head out here. If you're into geocaching, download those, too. There are several along the entrance rd and in teh area.

Basic campground with hiking trails in the area.

This small state park campground offers basic campsites with running water and showers, open Memorial Day to Columbus Day.  This is NOT Wolf's Den Family Campground in E. Haddam, CT. Also, be aware there are 2 campgrounds at this State Park; the other one, Mashamoquet Brook, does not offer running water/showers, so if you want these amenities, be sure to select a campsite 1-35.

There's a small playground in the middle of the loop, a number of hiking trails throughout the park along with a few geocaches (download details for offline use a phone connection is spotty), a swimming pond, and a small brook with an old mill and blacksmith shop that is sometimes open on weekends for tours. It's a nice place to explore and have a picnic. In 2020 with Covid, there were restrictions on visitors to the campground, reservations required, and swimming was not allowed. 

The parking pads are paved and a few have overhanging branches, but the trees provide  separation and some shade on largely open sites that tend to open up toward the back with open areas for pitching tents. Sites have fire rings with grills and picnic tables. Site 20 is the only one with electric. The ones toward the back of the loop back up toward the woods and give you some more privacy. 

They don't allow hammocks in the trees or pets. For some reason, silly string also makes the list of prohibitions.

Great campground

Clean. Well run campground. Beautiful area. Fishing on site. Crafts And events. Great camp store and grill and hot food

Nice clean campground and staff

The campground was clean. They cleaned playground after each family used it. The pool area was well marked cleaned and open. This was all done for covid precautions. Wooded area was nice with fishing pond. Bass and pan fish. Will definitely go back

Great for walking

No places to camp but a beautiful place to walk or to ride bikes

Nice campground—crazy owner

Loved the campsite. Beautiful, quiet, serene. The downside is that the owner is straight crazy. One minute she’s friendly, the next minute she’s blaming us for things we never did. We had booked a month and we were supposed to be staying right next to family. Due to a problem with the site she moved us clear across the park and told us we could return when it was fixed. But then didn’t let us return to that site afterwards and ripped into my dad when he tried to ask. Very rude lady.

Trailer park

Hate this place it sucks unless you have kids of not it’s not worth your time! Sites very close together also very expensive with not much to do

The nicest people..

We chose the best spot for our first camping trip with our new travel trailer. Everyone assisted us and taught us the world of camping. Activities were still available with social distancing of course due to Covid. Close by was Taylor Brooke Winery which was the perfect place to while away a late summer afternoon. If you go to Charlie Brown’s request a site by the water. Rain had been sparse so didn’t matter our weekend but I would imagine it would be great on a hot sunny day

Dry camping done right

This campground is quaint and is nestled in RI state forests. The sites do not have hook ups, but water faucets can be found throughout the camp, and there is is dump station. There are pit toilets around the camp, and there is a central modern bathroom. The beach is beautiful and would be busy on a hot summer day. We stayed in early October, so it was not crowded. The camp did fill up, even for October, however many sites were closed due to Covid. Tents, small and large RV’s occupied the many sites. Some sites are more level than others, bring some leveling blocks if your are towing a camper. We walked the 2 mile trail, there is a 6 mile and an 8 mile hike too. Dino’s supermarket is about 10 minutes away by car and has a traditional supermarket style, a welcome change from big box. I will come back here, it was peaceful, I need that.
