  • Extremely clean! Great lake views. Large easy access campsites. Sandy beach and clear lake water at adjourning day state park. Super clean restrooms. Due to drought this year, the lake was low. 
  • Loved visiting Ellacoya State Park for Timberman 70.3 this year. Lake winni was beautiful and Ellacoya is the Perfect place to access the lake. Water is crystal clear and refreshing. 
  • The day we were heading to the campground our harness broke so the camper had no lights. We had a friend who would drop the camper off for us. Staff would not let the person drop off because they were...  read more »
  • Beautiful park and campground. Terrible staff and management. Our recent visit was a very strange camping experience. There seems to be an E-COLI problem with the Parks well. Campers are advised not to drink the water... When asked about this situation the park staff is very vague as to the problem and the fix. They have gallon bottles of water your allowed 2 per day. It seems to me that they are trying pretty hard to hide this problem. No offers of refund or discount or rain checks were offered. They acted like "No big deal"
  • Awesome beach, very fine sand, huge area for kids to swim. The water is super clear! Lots of grills, tables which is great for BBQ. Definitely one of our favorites! Going to be back for sure! BTW, it's super close to the Bank of NH Pavilion, so we stopped by at the Park before we went to see the concert 😉
  • Staff is awful. We needed someone to drop the camper off for us because our harness broke and you can't legally tow without lights. They would not allow anyone to drop the camper off for us. They wanted us to change the reservation to that persons name, thus getting a cancellation fee and then change it back. We were given an attitude about the request and treated poorly. All we need was for someone to bring the camper for us!!!
  • Always beautiful and never too crowded, only thing was the park staff were so anal about certain rules. As long as you clean up and leave no Trace, what's the big deal? We had a few sticks from the beach in the fire pit and the guy ran over and told us to pull them out or he would kick us out. They were on fire still. What a jerk.
  • the water was crystal clear and the bathrooms are clean. They have a cute store with floaties. Lots of parking. Clean beach.thanks NH. The only NEGATIVE were the visitors. I witnessed 3 families with kids in a 2 hr period let the kids run after the wild life/ birds and ducks and some of the kids threw objects at the animals and hit them with it.😟
