It's So Beautiful!

Monguap is a very beautiful campground. Sites are big enough but can be gravely. Restrooms for loop (I stayed in d) not the best I have seen, but usable. The showers and restrooms at the beach area were best. But the best of all when you were on the beach, those views were breathtaking! The ducks may become your new best friends, if you have some bread to spare.

Serious Dog Bite Incident

Recently, we camped here for a week. We don’t ever post negative reviews like this. The last day, we experienced a violent attack by a very large and aggressive Pit Bull. The Pit Bull did not have a collar or a leash and was accidently let out of the RV to roam free and unsupervised. It immediately ran to our site(4 sites away) and attacked our dog that was tied at the time. The incident was unprovoked. While trying to save our dog, my wife and I were also attacked. The wounds were serious enough to require emergency transport to a hospital for treatment including stitches. All we could think of was what might have happened if our granddaughter had been playing with our dog. 

To put it mildly, their existing pet policy is grossly lacking. They never checked what breed of dog or ask to see documentation of shots when we were registering. Yogi Bear Jellystone Park needs to better manage their pet policy to address aggressive dog breeds and ensure the safety of campers. We camped there for seven days and saw multiple sites have more than one large dog, which in many places we’ve camped at would have been banned due to breed type or size. We have RV’ed extensively across the US and have never seen such careless enforcement of a pet policy regarding aggressive dog breeds. Seriously, think about avoiding this park if you have pets or small children.

A quirky little campground that feels like an X-Files Location

General Notes: 

We had a nice time overall  this place is A quirky little campground that feels like an X-Files Location.  

This is a smallish campground which is divided into two sections: RV (lower area near entrance) and Tent (upper area).  However, there are tents allowed in the RV section as well.   RV area is wide open with no privacy and Tent area is more wooded with more privacy.  All sites are very close to one another.  

We stayed at site 37 in the upper tent area. 

Pros:

1.Nice  & helpful staff

2.Very clean bathrooms with very clean shower

3. Access to stunning hiking trails, including the Appalachian Trail

Cons:

1. Several of the upper area tent sites are basically on a ramp.  It was almost comical how slanted the site(s) was.  Things would slide off the picnic table often and we tried to level the table but then our feet could barely touch the ground when sitting - adorably comical. 

2. In other reviews, you will read about the hum from power station which is directly across the street from the site … it's real.   We had it less at site 37 than the lower sites. 

3. There would also be a train that would pass by - trains can be charming but this one seemed to stop often near by and rev it's engine for about an hour … it was very strange. 

4. You may see in another review (which I think is no longer up now?) that there are a fair amount of Daddy Long Legs.   There are.   A lot.  We know that bugs are a part of camping, absolutely  … but this was almost boarding on, well  …  an X-Files episode.  They are  e v e r y w h e r e.   Some standing guard as if they want to stay out you way.  Others rushing around as if they are trying to get home because they realized they left the gas on.   We always are mindful of our tent zippers and so we had no visitors inside our tent … but they were very abundant.

Not impressed

We stayed here out of necessity due to power outage in NW Connecticut for a week. This was the closest location with WiFi and electric that allowed us to work. After we arrived saw on website that health department had sited them for covid violations. I see why. When we arrived there were sign ups for basketball, tennis, and other activities. There was a corn hole and cancer fundraiser competition going on with several hundred campers interacting and no masks in site. The only place I saw any kind of following guidelines was in the office area. Our site was more like camping in a Walmart parking lot with hookups. Golf carts everywhere. A concert and bonfire took place on Saturday night, but did shut down by 11 pm. Not a place we will ever go back to.

#bigfunfamily approved

We threatened a Jellystone stop for years, and finally made it happen. Great place for kids and staff runs a great park. Its crowded, loud and in constant movement but as expected. Sites here are pretty spread out and it’s big rig friendly with some level concrete pads which is a huge bonus. Park is doing a great job with COVID in the common areas. Not our normal type spot but definitely worth it to break up our 2 month road trip. Safe travels all!

Unimpressed

In my opinion only good thing about this campground was location near hunter and the devils path trail we wanted to do. Management was not friendly or helpful in process, when we arrived site reserved online was too small to fit two cars with being in the road even though the site was listed as fitting two vehicles. Management refused to allow use to change reservation to an open site or to allow me to reserve another site to leave cars at for the night. In addition very busy road runs right through the campground. I would not recommend or stay here again.

Nice and Small

We stayed at this campground one weekend and it was very nice. Warning: you will loose service about a half hour before you get there so plan accordingly. Some sites can be small but we lucked out and got one of the bigger ones. The staff was nice and friendly. There were signs to wear masks in public spaces, such as the showers and bathrooms and everyone seemed to be respecting the rules which we appreciated. The pond area was nice, it has a small section blocked off for swimming and can get a bit crowded. Overall good weekend and would go back again.

Quiet and clean

This was our first time staying here and based on some reviews I was not expecting much. I was pleasantly surprised however. The park was clean and though the buildings and some equipment was old, it was well kept. The bathrooms were closed so I can't speak to that aspect of the place. The seasonal sites are dotted throughout the park and they are a mix of both old and new campers, with all being well groomed and kept neat. The C section (30 amp) has some shade trees and all grassy sites. Shared hook ups ( two sites on one pole) at the rear of the sites with the exception of sewer. Sites were sized well and management spaced out the reservafions so people camping together could be together, but then allowed empty sites in between each group. Cable hook up was old and although we couldn't get any channels our neighbors got about 10 on the antenna. Management keep social distancing easy by keeping the store closed and allowing firewood or store orders via text message with delivery to your site. Management were doing rounds often in the golf carts and stopped often to make sure you didn't need anything. We would go back again, especially if camping with friends.

Good stuff

There’s a couple marked primitive campsites scattered along the trail, we camped at the first one on the way up. Good hike with a bit of a challenge climbing rocks at the end towards the ledge but nothing crazy

This campground I sc now called Mt. Greylock campsite park.

Fair campground that was a little overwhelmed I think. Decent sites with water and power for all. Two restrooms seemed to be adequate. I didn't use any of the onsite entertainment but it does have it. Friendly owners that are accommodating.
