At a time when so many campgrounds seem to offer you a choice of either location or amenities, Oak Haven is a refreshing alternative with the best of both! Located in the midst of a 90-acre private, wooded preserve, Oak Haven is central to all of the Sturbridge, Brimfield and greater Pioneer Valley attractions. Unlike so many crowded parking lots alongside of busy highways, Oak Haven offers its guests a quiet change-of-pace which symbolizes the small-town lifestyle of rural New England.
After dealing with the hustle, bustle and hassles of a Monday thru Friday nine-to-five routine, Oak Haven offers a welcome relief where the air is clean and the nighttimes are filled with starry skies and the sounds of crickets. Spacious sites offer a maximum of privacy, while the glow of crackling campfires encourages friendships which can endure forever. It is no wonder that so many of Oak Haven’s guests have become seasonal campers, taking a personal pride in enhancing the natural beauty of their second homes in the country. First-time guests are sure to recognize the cleanliness and care, concern and courtesy, which are everywhere to be found at Oak Haven.
Why settle for less by searching for more? Enjoy the Oak Haven experience … truly what camping was intended to be!

Pleasant relaxing weekend
July 5, 2009
We had a party of five families on four sites for Independence Day weekend, 2009. We were assigned spaces on McLeod Field, which is essentially a dirt and grass safari area with no trees. There is a large fire pit in the center of the "U", so none of these sites were given a fire ring, so plan accordingly if you like to cook over an open fire. (There was some evidence that you could request a ring). We had rather cool weather for July, so the direct sun wasn't a problem, but I imagine that this area bakes when the weather is hot, so ask for a shaded site if you have little kids.
We chose Oak Haven because of its proximity to the Stafford Motor Speedway, where we attended their 4th of July event, and the reasonable rates for a holiday weekend ($38/night), although we felt a $16 guest fee per adult was a bit excessive.
The facilities are very nice, with a brand new rec hall (still under construction at this writing) and a pretty new pool. The campground roads are a bit rough, however, with ruts and uneven surfaces. In fact, one of the little kids in our group took a nasty spill on his way to the playground one day.
One of the conditions we found not quite so desireable was a strong sulfur smell to the water supply on three of the four sites we had. This caused an undesirable smell inside the RVs, especially in the toilet and bath areas. When we mentioned this to the office, they denied that there was a problem. One of our neighbors who was not part of our party, said that he was having an issue too. It did abate during day 3 and 4 of our stay, so the advice is to run your faucet for awhile before hooking up to your water system.
It's generally common courtesy not to cut through people's sites, but we found that the seasonals near us apparently thought that our transient area was "theirs" whether the sites were occupied or not, even driving a car through at one point.
We tried to position our vehicles to give us some privacy, but they walked through anyway. (Senior citizens no less).
They keep the place very clean. The bathrooms were spotless and they sweep out the fireplaces after you leave. There is free wi-fi, and you can order your favorite (local region) Sunday paper at the office at no additional charge.
Overall, we found camping at Oak Haven a pleasant experience and would camp there again.
