This was our third year tenting at this campground, each trip was the same weekend in September to attend the FreshGrass music festival in North Adams, MA. While there are a few designated tent sites, it’s clear this is an RV park. The new-ish owner greeted us enthusiastically, as always, but seemed so distracted by everything else going on that it made it difficult to understand what he’s trying to tell you. We found it a little rude to be treated as though, because we were tenters and weren’t hauling in a camper, we were not as important as the crowd of RVs pulling in.
We booked our site in mid-April for a September stay and requested a specific site as requested on the registration form, but upon arrival the owner moved us to a different site with no explanation.
Overall the campground is clean and family-friendly, with activities for the kiddos. The bathroom/shower is adequate, but far away from tent sites and look unfinished and a bit rundown. I assume this will be the next renovation for the new owners.
Nice campground with wooded sites, a rec hall, pool and small fishing pond. They have a large field for play with basketball and volleyball and even had entertainment Saturday night. Gorgeous area to explore and hike. Would definitely come back.
The new owners have turned this forgotten campground around. They made a lot of upgrades and you get unbelievable WiFi connection. I stayed there last Fall right before they closed for Winter. All hookups were turned off but water was still available at the office. Just be careful with your GPS do not take Quarry Road!
This campsite is located at the base of Mt Greylock. it’s kind of hidden and could be lrettu easy to miss the first time but once you find it you’d found a hidden gem. The campground has everything you need. Water, electric hook up, it’s got a recreational center (cabin) with entertainments. Cable, fireplace, board games, pool table, air hockey table, you name it. There’s a pool, a kiddy park with swings and slides for the kids. The rec center also has hot showers, flushable toilets. The campsites have wifi access as well. I had a great experience, been there twice already. Hammock, Tent and RV friendly. Lots of campsites and all real close to Mt Greylock summit. The rec center also provides snacks, camping accessories, and coffee in the morning! The hosts are really nice and welcoming. I def recommend this campgrounds.
wonderfully friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful owners you will meet right at check in. They really go above and beyond to make your stay comfortable-- even delivering firewood, or anything else you need from the camp store, right to your campsite!
the sites are beautiful and quiet; the facilities are very clean and well taken care of.
We are typically campers who prefer to camp in state or national parks which don't have the amenities of private campgrounds. This trip we decided to stay here because we had some relatives (small children) with us and wanted to extras. For this reason, the campground was a good pick. Pat and Gordon are super friendly and genuinely want you to have a great time. Our site was big and, while not completely level, was workable. There are two bathrooms for the whole camp, but the bathrooms never ran out of toilet paper or soap and stayed pretty clean. The showers are free, but I did encounter a line once or twice. As others mentioned, the pool and playground are nice and the rec hall has several games including air hockey, foosball, pool and board games. All are free and we enjoyed them. There were activities planned for the weekends that we took advantage of too. The band on Saturday night was fun and we brought our chairs and a cooler up there after dinner. The kids enjoyed just running around the open field while we enjoyed the band. The band was loud and we eventually went back to our site, had our fire and enjoyed the music from there, but it was wrapped up by 9:30 and the camp quieted down pretty quickly. We didn't really get to do much in the area but was told there is a pretty good rail trail nearby. Overall, this was a great weekend and we enjoyed it very much. It's a great place to bring kids too and know that there are activities to keep them busy.
Just a few things to be aware of, however. The camp has a lot of hills and some are pretty steep. We always bring our bikes and love to bike through the campgrounds, but this one is not good for biking. Our little ones had trouble going down the hills because of the loose gravel and we almost had a pretty bad wipe out. Bikes were put away after that. Some of the sites are up hills and might be difficult for some to park their trailers. We watched a fifth wheel try to back up a hill and then turn into a site and couldn't get a grip because of the incline and the loose gravel. I think it's just about getting a site that works for your vehicles. Some of the sites look like they were bigger sites that were then split, but now are two or three separate sites sharing a entryway. Great for a big party with multiple campers, but not great if you're that close to strangers. The road is a loop but shares a long stretch of where traffic goes in both directions. It made for a busy road and made me a little nervous with the kids being on the road. Most people stick to the 5 mph limit, but there were a few that seemed to forget that there were pedestrian's sharing the road. The quiet hours start at 11 p.m. so if you are early to bed, you might hear your neighbors. But once 11 hit, it was quiet.
It was a nice weekend and enjoyed the time with our family. Thanks Pat and Gordon for being great hosts.
