My wife and I and our two children stayed here last summer. While the street is indeed busy - other comments about the noise from the big rigs is spot on - the location more than made up for that. Everything about Joe's Pond was fantastic, from the swimming to the kayaking (we brought our own) to the view itself. If you go near July 4, you'll be treated to fireworks. Cell phone service was spotty, which turned out to be a plus, and there's plenty to do and see nearby if you have young kids. While we want to explore other parts of the state, this is a spot I'll eventually revisit.
