Staying at Pleasant Valley Campground
Wooded and grassy sites
This campground is great for RVs but I actually prefer to pitch a tent here. There are lots of spots in the back woods and also a couple fields you can reserve if you have a bunch of tents to set up. Plus the owner is always super nice and very accommodating! And always make sure to get a load of wood because it’ll last a couple days if not longer! I come here more than Groton state parks nowadays because they are so expensive and always very booked. I can call the week before and get a spot here, which I love!
5 stars for the setting in the pines overlooking the lake with spacious sites (except those along side the lake). 3 stars for lack of cell service and no WiFi . I would definitely stay again. Owner very helpful and attentive . Sites are on a tiered hillside so most have a view of the lake.
This campground offers seasonal sites (my friend's parents got one this season) and has all the necessities to hook up your RV and create your own temporary summer escape. It also would be a nice place to stay for a night if you're driving through. Sites are spacious, but most are rather close to one another - especially the waterfront ones which are packed in there and offer room for no more than a car and trailer. This can get noisy, but also let's you get to know your neighbors. Many of the sites are under pine trees, so pitch can get on a lot of stuff. Many sites are just a stone's throw away from the pond, which makes for great scenery and sunrises! There also is a small swimming area that doubles as a canoe/kayak launch as well. The bathrooms are clean and they even offer laundry services.
Overall, this is a nice campground if you like to get outside for the weekend with amenities, but it doesn't have that "backcountry" feel that other, more primitive campgrounds have.
