Tuxbury Pond RV Resort – A New England Treasure

Tuxbury Pond RV Resort

Tuxbury Pond RV Resort is located at 88 Whithall Road, South Hampton, NH.

This lovely RV park is nestled in a beautiful wooded area just over the Massachusetts line in New Hampshire.

It is located just a few minutes from the I-495. And it is accessed fairly easily even with a larger rig.

However, you must be careful with Google directing you to the campground. There are a couple of different ways to access the resort and one has an extremely tight left hand turn. So please, double check that before you get off the main highway.

The best route takes you through the little township of Amesbury, MA to get there. And it’s a very easy way to go, even with a larger rig.

Tuxbury Pond RV Resort Features

Tuxbury Pond RV Resort has 316 sites and is open from mid-April to mid-October. They have 30 and 50 amp sites, but you can request a 50 amp site if you need it.

This resort is also part of the Thousand Trails campground system. But as always, you can reserve a campsite outside of that system too.

If you do make a reservation on your own, the price per night is $77. And you can make weekly reservations also which is slightly cheaper.

It is NOT a 55 plus park, so families are welcome here also. And they also have seasonal guests which occupy a good part of the park. But we had no problem getting a spot when we stayed there twice.

A little unique feature of the park is that they offer tiny homes for rent too. So if you have someone meeting you there with no RV, it is an option for them. They were really cute!!!!

This RV park is named because it is located on Tuxbury Pond. It is a fairly large pond but unfortunately is becoming somewhat overgrown with flora.

This is not the parks fault though. Public officials have the responsibility to dredge it and it really needs to be done. Even so, it still does not take away from the beauty of the area.

The roads in the park are fairly easy to navigate. And they have spots for bigger rigs and
also for smaller ones too, which accommodates everyone.

It has many trees that offer shade. And beautiful walking roads and paths give it a restful feel.

The sites are dirt or grass. You definitely can level your rig though. Also when it rains, the drainage is pretty good.

Tuxbury RV Resort Amenities

The park amenities seem to be in good shape. They are older but kept up well. They have a nice size pool, playground. basketball and volleyball courts, and horseshoes.

Most of these were open with limitations because of the Covid pandemic when we were there. But they seem to have other activities planned when these restrictions aren’t in place.

They also have laundry facilities that are clean and appear to be priced reasonably. The bath houses are updated and clean too if this is something that you need.

Internet connectivity worked well in the park too. As usual, we had good connection with our phones through T-Mobile.

How To Avoid Buying An RV Money Pit

And we used our AT&T hotspot to stream videos and access the internet. And we are happy to say that here were no hiccups using this equipment either.

The park does offer wi-fi, but it costs extra. We do not know how well it works, but it is available if you choose to use it.

We noticed that there were some negative reviews online for this resort. But we did not find any of them to be true except that the front desk personnel could be just a little friendlier.

After talking with some long-term residents in the park, we found some people had to be asked to leave because of their behavior. And as you might expect, they and all their friends and family put up bad reviews.

But we, on the other hand, found the park to be very accommodating and a pleasure to stay in.

What We Found In The Surrounding Area

Is it way out in the middle of nowhere? Not really. We found this RV park very easy to to stay at and have access to everything we needed.

First, there is the nearby town of Amesbury, MA not more than about 5 or 6 minutes away. There you will find a delightful Main Street full of Mom and Pop stores.

There are also a number of restaurants nearby, most of which are unique and highly rated. During our stay, we ate at the Morning Buzz Cafe, and we can say that their food was delicious.

There is a Stop and Shop grocery store in the area for some of those necessities that you need too.

But the best thing we enjoyed about the area is all the farms. We especially fell in love with Cider Hill Farm at 45 Fern Rd. in Amesbury.

The produce there is amazing. You can even pick your own fruit, when in season. And they have their own cheeses and meats too.

But the BEST thing about Cider Hill Farm is the cider donuts. They are to die for!!!!!

We were there in the autumn, so of course pumpkins and apple picking were everywhere. And they sell the best tomatoes we have had in years.

We can’t say enough about this place. Again, it opens in mid-April and goes
through the fall harvest. So don’t miss it!!!

But if you have the itch to go to a bigger city, then hop on I-495. And about 35 miles away is Boston which offers you anything you could want.

RV Gear

There are plenty of stores, like Walmart, Costco and many other shops and malls. There is also historical spots of interest on almost every corner.

Universities, museums, and restaurants are plentiful in the Boston area. And a beautiful stroll down the Charles River and the famous Boston Harbor await you too.

If you go the other direction on I-495 instead, about 45 miles away Nashua, NH awaits you. They don’t have as much to offer as Boston, but it is not shabby either. All the major stores are there.

Also, in New Hampshire, there are beautiful places to visit where nature and scenery abound. And one big plus is no state sales tax either.

So if you have some expensive items to purchase, you can save quite a bit on sales tax there. All in all, the New Hampshire area is wonderful.

Our Conclusion About Tuxbury Pond RV Resort

So how would we rate this RV Resort? For the area where it is located, we would give it a 5 star rating.

The resort itself? Probably a 4 star. This is only because things, although clean, could be updated a bit. Also the office staff could be a bit friendlier.

All that being said though, we would definitely go back again and probably will. FYI, if you can plan a trip for the fall, you are in for a real treat.

We love the beautiful fall colors and the smells that come with New England in autumn. And we are sure that you would enjoy that special time of year in the area as well!
