The weekend of April 27 was a community weekend for Foxwood Family Campground. This is the second year I had participated in this activity that recruited a lot of maintenance help. My responsibility on that community day was to run the store and provide everyone with the supplies they needed to do their chore for the day. Part of running the store included monitoring who came into the campground that day, and since I had control of letting people in, I know for a fact the security gate was not stuck open. After a long rough winter and the grounds hit with two pretty good storms, I will admit the campground and some buildings needed a lot of work. The main bathhouse was hit twice after the campground shut down for the winter, once during Hurricane Sandy and again in the winter months. The volunteers for community clean up weekend repaired the main bathhouse roof that was in desperate need of repair and the inside ceiling was fixed the following week.
Unfortunately, the storms also washed away the stone roads which made some pretty big ruts, but nothing a back hoe full of stone couldn't fix. The campground had two dumpsters on that particular day, one was in front of the main bathhouse filled with roofing debris and the second dumpster was down across the street from the store. The garbage disposal company had just come the day prior, therefore that dumpster was not overflowing with anything, let alone rodents. It's a shame animals can't read or we could request the owner put up a "NO EATING" sign for the hungry bears, raccoons, and skunks. The garbage that had been scattered on the ground has since been cleaned up. This happens in all dumpster sites when there are wild animals in the vicinity.
I agree, there are trailers that are in need of major repair in the park, but ones that are beyond repair have and still are being removed. If you had been to Foxwood prior to April 27, you should have also noticed all the repairs and improvements that have been done in the past few years, for example, the store and game room have a new roof, new outdoor lighting in front of the store, major improvements inside the store and den area, the bathhouse in the tent section has new flooring, the primitive cabins have been renovated, 25 additional seasonals with beautiful campers and sites within the past two years, all of the rentals in the seasonal area were moved to the rental area by the rally field, the log cabins were all repainted, the pool has been repainted, cable installed in the front field......just to name a few.
Foxwood Family Campground is still a diamond in the rough, and it continues to shine more and more every day!! There are obviously a lot of happy campers, or there wouldn't be a Foxwood's!
