The campground has 3 sections, located on different tiers of a hill. The lower level has RV sites, middle has tent sites, and upper has a few yurts. Each level has a bath house (3 toilet stalls and 1 shower in the lower level; it was run-down but clean enough). Outside the entrance station (near the RV sites) is a HUGE power station that emits a hum constantly. Super annoying and an eyesore. You’ll see many vehicles drive-by with boats or ATVs in tow as the state forest also has areas suitable for their use. Accessible from the campground are a few hiking trails. Monument Mountain is a popular hiking spot about 20 minutes away and Bash Bish Falls State Park is about 45 minutes away. Note: Massachusetts does not allow alcohol in their parks.

Campsites are large but fairly close together. Clean bathhouse with dishwashing station outside. Loop 1 is tailored for RV/trailers; Loop 2 sites are nestled into the woods; Loop 3 has 2 tent sites and 3 yurts. A few sites are along the road (one is immediately adjacent to the bathhouse) - so book early for best selection. The rangers were friendly and helpful. Plenty of trails to explore!

Great campground with large sites and clean bathrooms. One shower per bathroom but there didn't seem to be too much of a backup. I didn't take one so can't speak to cleanliness. Nice dish sink outside the bathrooms too.
