New England RV Camping

DW and I live in Eastern NC. Our daughter (only child), son-in-law and two grandkids live in Providence, RI. Anyone have any recommendations of camp grounds in that area? We would require full hookups and prefer a campground with trees for shade as our stays would be about a month long a couple times a year. A pond or lake would also be nice to take in a little fishing. Would prefer to be within an hour of Providence.

Thanks,
Lynn & Diane

Hopefully someone in the area can give you some tips on others that may not be listed.

We go to Chamberlain Lake in Woodstock, Ct. Not too far from Rhode Island. We are on our way there now for the summer to visit our kids and grandkids

Normand Farms is around 30 minutes from there and I've stayed there in the past. It's a huge place and there are plenty of sites with tree coverage. You'll need reservations as the place is really busy but with enough advanced notice, you should be able to work something out.

Lynn & Diane.... Which side of Providence does your daughter live on? What town? Is she downtown or suburban? That info will help to really zero things down. In New England nothing is very far away, and an hour's drive could encompass four states!

On the east side of Providence (Boston / Cape Cod). Times are GPS to downtown PVD. Normandy Farms- ~30 min; Circle CG Farm- ~40 min; Boston/Cape Cod KOA- ~ 45 min.

There are other CGs to the west side as well.

FWIW You probably do want to be on the correct side. Getting across those metro areas can be a real PITA at times.

One thing most people from other parts of the country do not know and may miss when they book a camp site in CT, most CG's DO NOT have sewer connections at the site, so you can not get what most people consider a FHU. Most have dump stations and some offer pump out service. I am not sure why this is, I have a theory it is from early state laws, I have however seen some CG's in CT have been updated, but I just went to Chamberlain's web site and they do not offer FHU's. So when you book in CT be sure to ask if they have sewer at YOUR site.

Normandy Farms is a great CG, however because it is so good it gets crowded, particularly during the summer months and because of its location and open all year, during the Patriot's season. Don't misunderstand, we have stayed there and it is among the nicest in the north east I just think there are places to stay that are not as crowded.

We spent about 2 weeks at Wawaloam Campground in West Kingston RI, last year. It's a nice place, good sized sites and all full hookup and cement pads.

The facilities are kept up really well. They have a large playground area, ball courts, outdoor pool as well as a fee-based waterslide.

It's on the southern side of Providence, only about 30 minutes away - depending on traffic as you pass through the Warwick/Providence area.

https://wawaloam.com/

We've visisted Normandy Farms a few times - as tent campers when our kids were young and a few times since then in our RV. Normandy Farms is a nice place, lots of activities for the kids, indoor and outdoor pools and much more.

You'll be on the north side of Providence at Normandy Farms and you can either brave RT 95 back down to Providence, or can swing around Providence using RT 295 if the traffic is bad. Normandy Farms is right down the street from Gillette Stadium (home of the NE Patriots) and is really close to Wrentham Village Premium Outlets.
