Sitting by my camp fire super happy.

Beautiful grounds, super clean, nice staff. A great escape from the world right now. All staff has masks on and it’s spotless here. Grateful for it. Nai:wen

Not really our scene

Mostly seasonal sites. Lots of golf carts and drunks (if that’s your thing, cool). Facilities were nice and clean. We didn’t feel like we were in nature. More like the parking lot of a Kid Rock festival. They charge for EVERYTHING (internet $10 per device). Will not be back.

Bucket of Fun

You want an easy family camping trip? Go here. They took us last minute, and for 40$ it was everything we needed. Showers, bathrooms, on site water connections, and there’s plenty of seclusion on their tent sites for some easy camping. There’s ATV trails, activities, and for what you get it’s absolutely worth it.

Great campground

Owner does an amazing job at keeping this campground looking it’s best. Many major upgrades within the past couple of years. Electric has been revamped, sewer has been upgraded to accommodate full service hook-up to each site, and they recently renovated the laundry. Brand new dryers as well. The manager is quick to help if there are any issues and is always very accommodating. Great family campground with activities for the kids. Definitely a must see!

Easy check-in

Check-in during COVID times went smoothly. Some sites are a bit close together. Be aware that you can hear a train horn throughout the night, so if you're a light sleeper, that may be an issue. The trees were wonderfully tall, with plenty of shade. Picnic tables and firepits conveniently located on sites.

Terrific Campground

We’ve visited Fernwood Forest Campground twice and have been impressed with it both times. Large sites with trees give lots of privacy. Very clean sites and facilities are cleaned to meet COVID requirements. Very quiet. Good local access to numerous hiking trails in the area. We’ll certainly go again the future.

One of my favorites

They allow 2 cars per site. Kept very clean. Swimming area. Great for kayaking and fishing. We camp in our tent. They do allow RVs. Tons of hiking trails. Picnic tables and fire pit at each site. The folks a few miles down the road by the rotary sell giant piles of wood for $10. They do not have an on site store or sell firewood. So bring your own things. Simple but very nice.

Hidden Gem

General Notes:

After a long day we  did a virtual version of throwing a dart at map to head out and do an overnight camping trip.   Our dart landed on Erving and we literally had never heard of it … so we were … skeptical.   However, we were absolutely delighted by this great spot in the  beautiful Erving State Forest.  

Pros / Cons:  

This is a very small campground with only 27 sites and only 13 sites open during the 2020 / Covid Season. 

Situated by a beautiful lake and access to several hiking trails. 

Although you have good privacy to your left and right - you are not far from your  camping neighbors across the way … and we quickly learned the names of their small children as parents yelled their names almost constantly.   

There is also zero cell service (there is an operational pay phone at the showers) which is fine … but wished we knew ahead of time. 

All pros outweigh the cons.  We'll definitely be returning to this small hidden gem which is also situated by a lovely lake and has fantastic hiking trails.

One of the best in Massachusetts

This campground is fantastic. This is the cleanest campground I have visited. Everyone is very friendly and helpful and there are lots of activities plus food trucks. If you have a boat, you can rent a dock slip too. We love it here!
