Stayed here 3 nights. Name has been changed to Sturbridge RV Resort. Don?t let the word Resort fool you. The grounds and sites are poorly maintained, the hookups can be anywhere even on the next door site, and they have next to nothing in the way of activities. Sites are tiny, you can barely extend awnings, and don?t have anything on your rear bumper because it will hit the rig behind you or your front will be out in the pothole laced dirt road. Several rigs had orange cones at the front of their rigs because they were so far out in the travel part of the road. When we departed I had the choice of hitting a cone or the low hanging branches on the other side. They also have the audacity to charge a $4.00 daily ?resort fee?! I can?t believe that Good Sam rated this place as an 8.5 overall. It doesn?t deserve more than a 6.0 in my opinion. Never again - there are better and less expensive places in the area!
Sturbridge Thousand Trails Resort
This park is a Thousand Trails/ Encore/ Outdoor World campground and is not suitable for big rigs. We arrived in our 36' Class A Motorhome and just barely were able to navigate the hairpin turn at the entrance and narrow roads to what they call the "big rig" area and then were parked bumper to bumper with the rig behind us. It took several back and forth to back into the site. Our site (and most of the ones that we saw) were nowhere near level requiring the use of blocks to keep the tire on the ground when the lever jacks were extended. We had barely enough room to park the car alongside of the rig. The space allowed after parking just allowed enough space for a picnic table and building a fire in the provided fire ring would have certainly caused damage to the rig and your neighbors. The only full hookup sites are the "D Ring" and none of these sites is really suitable for anything over 30' in length. Don't even attempt it with a 40 or 45 foot rig; you'll never get out of the campground. When we were there we had to contend with 5th wheels, tow trailers, and vehicles sticking into the road. The other negative is that rules apparently are not enforced; we saw cars speeding through the park with children everywhere; kids making all kinds of noise well into the night; and trash scattered along the road ways. Use care when walking your pets; roads are very narrow and cars do speed through the campground. On the plus side, there is 50 Amp service and cable TV and the amenities were very nice. Staff was friendly and very helpful. The lake is beautiful and the indoor pool, club house, store and arcade are very clean and well kept. It really would be a great campground for a family and rigs 30' or less in size.
Not Recommended for Travelers
Getting in is like an obstacle course -- lots of tight turns & cramped spaces. Poor TV & cell phone reception. Cable TV reception was even poor for most channels. Mostly seasonal folks here; not well suited to travelers. Nice pond, but no swimming, but has indoor, heated pool. Facilities seem outdated. Staff not too friendly. One seasonal or full-time resident with nuisance barking dogs had centrally-located spot.
