Great time

Stayed on an rv site for 1 week this past summer. Had a great time, kids had a blast with the boat rentals and fishing.
Saw they have 2 yurts for rent as well.

Staff was incredibly freindly and gave us restaurant recommendations around the area.
About 5 min from great hiking at purgatory chasm.

If you want water views this is the place.

I have been camping here for 20 years off and on. The staff is always friendly and will accommodate you with whatever you need. Don't like your site? Call the office and they will find you one you do like if it's available. The campground is set on the Q River and if you're lucky enough to see it from your site it's beautiful. The campground CAN get packed but everyone is polite and we've never had a problem. 

I will be returning every year I'm able.

Great place for a family

We stayed at the campground and loved it. School started late so we were able to book after the holiday in September. Weather was still warm. Pool was good, pond was great.  It was not crowded that time of year, so it was very enjoyable. We really enjoyed the beach raft, able to kayak and did some fishing. 

Kids loved the little pool slide. Also enjoyed the golf cart rentals.  The only disappointment was that they did not have a fire pit at the rented cabin that we were allowed to use. That was disappointing. It’s one of the key things you do when camping, that needs to change. However we have booked rentals for this year and are looking forward to going back.

Coastal campground open late in season

Scusset Beach offers an extended camping season, although the extended season is restricted to self-contained units as the restrooms are turned off.  Also, there are only 5 designated tent sites during the peak season, so if you want to tent camp here, you'd best make a reservation well in advance.. You cannot reserve an RV site for a just a tent, though if you have a trailer, you may also have a tent on the site. The 5 tent sites have their own fire pits, but the RV sites must use a community fire pit, though in mid-November, just before the campground closed for the season, RVers used the firepit at a tent site that provided some additional protection from the wind.

The RV sites have paved parking pads and picnic tables, but the area to the side of the parking pads sometimes slopes away, so it's less usable for chairs, etc.  In the 2020 camping season, every other campsite was closed (thus the picnic tables across the entrance of the parking pad). Some of the sites, 32 34, 36, are along the back of the campground closer to the trees/scrub, and so have some degree of privacy and protection as compared to the others in the wide open park.

The campground is on the north shore of the Cape Code canal and provides access to a sandy beach, a jetty, and the Cape Cod Canal Trail for biking and walking. There's a nice playground for youth. You can fish from the shore or jetty, No need to cross the bridge to the Cape. Plymouth is also nearby to explore.

Another good state park campground!

Water and 30/50 amp. Beach/swimming area. Bath houses were clean. Huge, modern playground.

Best campground!

This place is a dream. Stayed here for a month in the fall. Campground is situated in a beautiful valley with a little pond, hiking trails, playground, jumping pillow, swimming pool and hot tub. Owner is very involved, energetic, and friendly. There are events for the kids every weekend and it’s such a fun environment! Will definitely be back!

Nice, Clean and Friendly Staff

We stayed here back in 2019 and had a nice experience. I'd totally recommend for family outdoors fun.

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.

I love this campground!!

Very well maintained, clean and picturesque. Go in late September when the kids are back to school and there are very few campers. Holiday weekends are crowded but the sites are large and spread apart. No hookups but that's ok if you are self contained. Plenty of bath/toilet facilities and close to kayaking on the Wood river if you dont prefer the very large pond that you can access in the campground. Great place to bike and hike.

Great location, absent staff

We stayed over Labor Day weekend. The park was very busy and we never saw grounds staff in the park. Our area wasn’t well marked, and because of that our spots were really squashed. Our spot was also never mowed so we had more than ankle high grass in our spot. Group near us had late night parties, and set off fireworks after dark.

In the end we had a nice time, but it’s not because the park went out of their way to make it a great experience. We did visit Plymouth and saw what it had to offer.
