I’m not sure what the history of this campground is. It’s part of Thousand Trails, but the sign and the literature all say Outdoor World. It functions like one of the Thousand Trails. You are supposed to figure out and pick a site before you actually register. When we arrived, they told us the only area big enough for our motor home was in the “D” section — up on the hill.
They told us to walk up and pick out a site. There were actually only two possible spots. The RVs are parked back to back with less than a foot between them. There is a bit of grass between sites, but they are really close together. But, there is enough open area for Auntie Violet’s satellite dish to get its fix. (Not so sure that’s a good thing as we have been watching golf all day…)
The sites are all back ins and there is no escort to or assistance at the site. We are using Passport America for five of the seven nights of our stay (they don’t honor it on Friday and Saturday.). Even at the 50% discount for PA, it’s a lot to charge for a rather old run-down looking place with rutty dirt roads and no gravel or concrete pads. And then they add a $3 per day “resort fee!” We will use it for a base camp while we explore Connecticut and Rhode Island this week as well as a road trip to Salem, so we thankfully won’t be spending much time here.
We did drive into Sturbridge late this afternoon to pick up milk and orange juice.
We stopped at a small local fresh market that had homemade meat pies. We picked up a chicken pot pie, stuck it in a 325 degree oven for half an hour and had a great meal. I wonder what one would be like if you froze it…?
