    Wiener joints down here [LOL] they do not know what a hot wiener is. As far as coffee milk I get the syrup brought down by family so I keep well stocked, as well as frozen wieners, sauce, and Dells lemonade dry mix.......gotta love the tastes of New England! [A] I am from East Providence.

    I have been thereafter years back, and it was just OK...nothing special, the bathrooms were run down, and dirty, the "pond" is just deep enough for a canoe, I didn't see anything special about it. I wouldn't go back . I would go to Charlie brown campground in CT, close to the RI border and a lot nicer I think.... Check RV park reviews ....

    Well you know the whole saying about opinions [LOL] [LOL] On the serious note though, maybe you went like other CG reviews I have read, during a peak time when the CG was just overrun. [:)C]

    We were camping at Whispering Pines a few years back. A seemingly ordinary campground here in the Northeast.
    Nothing particularly of note except that on a Saturday night about 2 am, one of those tall whispering pine branches came crashing down about 50 ft crushing a tent about five sites away from us.
    Fortunately, it was a seasonal site and no one was in the tent. The light show that ensued afterwards lit up the entire pup like daylight. The branch that fell had taken out an overhead electrical line.
    Needless to say, we haven't camped there since.

    This campground has new owners. We went in April and they are very nice and are doing a wonderful job doing the little things that make a campground a nice place to stay

    Stayed for the spring fling deal this year. so due to personal and family things along with some crappy weather . we camped only 10 nights maybe.
    so 650 bucks not sure about the value.

    they do offer staying all 9 weeks if you choose, we could not with kids and work.
    i did like not towing and just heading from work there to meet the wife and kids friday afternoon
    the facility for nice and the sites were big
    we will return. i am not sure if we will do the spring deal again.
