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.

Park is terrible. Extremely high seasonal rates, abbreviated season, not really RV traveler friendly in fact do nit currently offer transient sites. Power is inadequate, water pressure is poor; sites are not level and in many cases not even close to level. Best advice, park your rig elsewhere, drive the toad in, admire the views, and leave as quickly as possible. Jamestown is not a place for RVers; much more welcome in the Newport area.
