Ashaway RV Resort, Ashaway Rhode Island

We have a seasonal site at Ashaway and we LOVE it there. It's about an hour and a half (or so) from Springfield Ma, so adjust accordingly for where you live. It's a new campground, only open for the last couple years. Pool, heated adults only hot tub, splash park and small store. Biggest draw is that it's only a few miles from the beaches of South County and 10-15 mins from Foxwoods, Mohegan Sun or Mystic Aquarium. Full hookups, accommodates pop-ups through big rigs. Open April 15-Oct 15. They have seasonal specials; fall and spring fling. Mysquamicut Beach is only 7 miles away, they have outdoor beach movie drive ins, outdoor music on the sand and a spring and fall festival on the beach.

I've heard great things about sunsetview and partridge hallow both in Monson. They are opening this weekend, maybe take a ride and check them out. All depends on what kind of camping your looking for, we stayed at the KOA in Westhampton, it was ok too.

BTW, I'm from Springfield.

Camping Spots

I'm from Texas, but I use the All Stays website and app. Allstays | Campgrounds | RV Parks The free version will show all of the locations. Pro version gives ratings and link to the campground website (if there is one). Click on Navigate in Pro and you go to Google maps to help plan the route and travel time. I think the price of using the Pro version is well worth it. Filtering on full hookup only (which eliminates some nice State Parks), I see Prospect Mountain (Granville, MA), Peppermint Park (Plainfield, MA) and Country Aire (Shelburne Falls, MA) all with 4/5 stars. This should get you started. Pick carefully and make the first camping experience a good one. Also make sure you pick up those "extras" you will need. Cable for cable TV hookup, sewer hose, bedding, dishes and pans, drill with a socket to run up and down your stabilizers, water hose, etc. Time to get these now while waiting on your camper. Happy camping !!

I forgot to mention Pine Acres in Oakham, it's one of the top rated in the country, it's on my must visit list, comes highly recommended by a friend. Also, someone else I think already mentioned it but Prospect mountain in Granville. We have quite a few around here that are good, search the reviews on Rv park reviews web site.

You are central to many nice spots to camp... you looking for places for activities with older/younger kids? RV resort or more of a primitive CG?



Other resources to use to find spots:



RV Park Reviews - Trusted Reviews of Campgrounds & RV Parks



RV Campgrounds, RV Camping, RV Rentals, RV Parks, RV Resorts - Woodalls



Good luck with your new campers! Happy trails!

Yogi Bear Lazy River - Gardiner, NY - ton of activities, water park, splash park, two pools, right on river... good fishing and tubing... need to reserve real early to get prime spots... site #40-43 are our favorites....

Fishermen's Memorial State Park - Narragansett, RI - act of god to get a site there... they book WAY out through reserve america

Herkimer KOA - Herkimer, NY... right on the West Canada Creek, nice pool and many activities for kids... and the Herkimer Diamond Mine! Might want to wait a few years for this one... diamond mine ideal for kids 6+

How was Circle CG? It's about 20-25mins from where I live.

Circle CG wasn't bad- the lady at check in wasn't the most welcoming but she wasn't super rude like some of the reviews say- they are open year round and have a few people that seem pretty permanent. Some of the sites are pretty close together...

It was our first time there and it was for sure "pre-season" for them- still lots of clean up going on and some areas not open yet. They have a spring cleaning weekend later this month- camp for free if you help etc....

We did have a problem with our electrical box - so careful if you go. The owner took care of it right away and replaced the box before we fully plugged into it.

Bathrooms were very clean! And it's really close to market basket, Walmart, Dunkin (forgot coffee pot!) and the package store near by was really impressive!
