Want to add some spice to your annual family vacation? Bear Creek Campground at Lake Compounce is not only a fantastic (and affordable) lodging facility -- it is also a part of the oldest operational amusement park in North America!
Bear Creek offers just about every type of camping option imaginable: tents, cabins, huts, tipis, and RV spaces! Tent camping is the most economical option here, starting at just $30 a night if you bring your own tent. Don't have one? For just $15 more, the facility will let you use one of their six-person tents and set it up for you too! The campground accommodates RVs of all sizes and offers full hookups; the daily rate for these are just $45 during the week. Leashed pets are welcome at both the RV and tent camping sites, but are prohibited in the other lodging facilities.
Club huts start at $89 a night and are a fun option for small families since they sleep four and have heating, air, and cable! Cabins are a little more expensive but are worth it since you won't have to walk to the public bathhouse; these sleep five and also feature a full kitchen. Pricing for cabins starts at $154 per night for weekdays. There are several ADA accessible cabins, but try to reserve these well in advance to guarantee their availability.
The resort offers complimentary transportation to and from the Lake Compounce theme park, home of the Boulder Dash -- voted number one wooden roller coaster in the world! The stay and play packages are a furrific way to cut costs for families (because, let's face it, being a parent of two- and four-legged critters gets expensive). Admission to Crocodile Cove, their wet and wild sister park, is also included in the package and makes for a fun way to beat the heat!
