“Beautiful State Park, some issues with the sites”

Reviewed Oct 14, 2017

Overall Rating

We stayed at Sampson State Park for one night on our way from Boston to Toronto. The Park is huge, with a museum on site, and well kept.

The welcome was somewhat cool and rushed as reception closed at 6:00 pm - it was in mid-October, so perhaps it had to do with the fact that it was late season. No firewood was available and the on-site store was closed. We were lucky that our reservation was still recognized.

All of this was even more surprising as the Park was busy. We saw at least two loops that were close to, if not at, capacity.

We were excited to have a waterside site, but when we arrived at loop 5, we found that all of the sites, and especially those facing the water were so sloped to be almost unusable. Some fifth wheels were parked at an acute angle, with their back practically scraping the ground and the front raised up high. There was absolutely no way we could have leveled our Airstream, so in the end, we parked perpendicular to the site, with the side of our trailer facing the lake. We were still not quite level, but it was workable.

There is no privacy between sites, and the park was fairly noisy with large groups partying - although that appeared to stop around 11:00.

I'm pretty sure that this can be a lovely Park during the summer but choose your sites carefully.
