“In the dense woods.”

Reviewed Jun 18, 2019

Overall Rating

Sites are located around a circular access road with the toilet/shower building in the middle of the loop. The are is densely wooded so we couldn't see the toilets nor any other sites except the one immediately across from us. Our site was very level. Parking pads are gravel. We did not have a reservation which didn't really matter ... more

“Simple and Quiet”

Reviewed Apr 01, 2019

Overall Rating

We stayed here in late March. It’s a small campground with no hookups - which we were totally fine with. Mostly tent campers and it was very quiet. Plenty of room between sites with vegetation. Clean bathhouse. No AT&T service, limited Verizon service. The mosquitos were already out so bring the bug spray. Would not recommend staying h... more

“Felt like a prison.”

Reviewed Dec 18, 2018

Overall Rating

We prefer dispersed campsites, but enjoy state parks for the amenities. We thought we would treat ourselves by staying at Merchants Millpond as it was along our route. The campground is beautiful with hot showers, fire pits, a garbage at each site, and water spigots every two or three sites. However, the park rangers provided f... more

“Quiet and beautiful but small sites with tricky access”

Reviewed Jul 08, 2017

Overall Rating

We stayed at this campground for one night en route to another destination, but we're sorry we didn't have more time to explore. Sites were all walk-up at the time we visited (July 2017) and the ranger was helpful in assigning a site. The ranger indicated the sites on the east side of the loop (11-20) are generally more level, and ... more

“Wonderful kayaking”

Reviewed Apr 16, 2015

Overall Rating

The RV campground is small with only 20 sites. Many of the driveways are small so larger RVs should read the descriptions to make sure it they are large enough. We have a 19 ft airstream so we didn't have to worry about this. There are no electric or water hookups. It does have a bath house (with hot showers). The campground itself... more
