Stopped on our way north and were not disappointed. We stayed here 2 years ago and were not impressed with the bath house facilities. They have since replaced the old bath house and have very nice bath houses. A herd of 5 horses visited our site in the evening. Verizon and Verizon hot spot worked well. Easy walk to the beach and to the bay side.

This is the most dog friendly state park we have ever visited. Dogs were welcome just about everywhere. The gift shop had a bowl of water set out for the dogs and the trail center across the road along the Cape Henry Trail had a doggy water fountain. I'm happy to report that everyone seemed to appreciated this and picked up after their dogs. We stayed for 2 weeks and had to change sites once. Verizon cell and hot spot worked well. For 12 nights we had a site specific spot and a nonspecific site for a weekend. The specific reservable site was the largest camp site we've ever had. Room for the motor home, car and kayak trailer plus a tent. Most of the reservable sites seemed to be equally large. The nonspecific site was more crowded but everything fit, too. As the previous reviewer mentioned, the beach is great but the trails through the woods, marsh and to the bay were great for riding bikes and walking. We kayaked in the bay and enjoyed the view of summer homes and wildlife. This state park seems to have something for everyone. It is only 5 miles from the boardwalk.

Lovely stay Easter Weekend at the park. It was during the visit the National Parks for free weekend so as we traveled south we decided to take advantage of the fee free weekend. Nice view of the bay even though we were on the inner loop and the horses came right on our site. Our fisherman caught 8 Rock fish (Striped Bass) on the bay side. Great Easter sunrise service at the State Park. Our Verizon coverage and hot spot worked well. The major drawback for the weekend was the lack of sanitary facilities being open. The campground was full, however, the toilet facility in our loop A only had one "hole" open. The other doors were locked. Not a problem for us because we brought our own but we saw tenter's taking toilet paper into the bushes. If the park is open for business, the toilet facilities should be available for the crowd that showed up.

Decent private campground located on a busy road nest to McDonalds in Warrensburg. It is not a resort but they did have a small pool and some activities on the weekend we were there. As a previous review mentioned the waterfront sites were squeezed tightly together. I have seen worse however. We chose to park our truck next to the motorhome because we had our kayaks in it and wanted them close by. This made a small site smaller since the tail gate of the truck was backed up to our awning. Positives: Brand new shower house with unisex shower rooms each with a shower, sink and toilet. You can kayak directly from your site. If you sit behind your RV on the river bank, you can forget how crowded the campsite and campground are and enjoy watching the river, ducks and kayakers go by. To maintain 110 for our A/C we had to turn off everything including putting the fridge on propane. Verizon worked well, we had 4G and our hotspot worked as well. If you want a convenient campground near the Lake George attractions, and don't mind crowded sites this campground is an okay choice. It also is about $30/40 cheaper per night than some of the resort campgrounds in the area.

update on last years review. The state greatly improved the beach since last year. They put in a new retaining wall and brought in literally tons of sand. It was much larger and very clean. They also built a new bath house at the beach. We were once again in loop B which has electric. We had 4G Verizon and our hot spot worked well. Be careful when you book sites since some are at a steep and angle and reserve america doesn't indicate if they are steep or not. We saw loons, deer, and red squirrels every day. Older son did some mountain biking on the trails and liked them.This year we kayaked as well as used their 7 mile trail system. If you want a campground with tall pines and extra spacious sites, this is a wonderful choice. However, it is not a resort campground.

Beautifully maintained campground. The staff was courteous, helpful and friendly. This is a great base camp to explore the Southern Maine area. The campground is the cleanest and well maintained one at which we've stayed. The 10 rating was due to this. They bill themselves as a clean and quiet place to stay and they are. If you are looking for a campground with many activities or a pool, chose another one. Also, they do not allow motorcycles to be operated in the campground from 8 pm until 8 am which could be a problem if you are traveling by one. The office staff were friendly and helpful and suggested some great side trips to take. Be sure to ask for suggestions when you stay there.

Good location between the river, marsh and ocean. There is practically something for everyone: river beach which is dog friendly, ocean beach with good waves and a marsh for kayaking. The sites vary and some are quite crowded since you are allowed 2 vehicles plus the camping unit. The park allows the extra vehicles to park on the grass between sites so it can get congested. There many boats since the launch ramp is park of the park and many fishermen were launching and retrieving each day. If you kayak on the river, look for seals near the rocks. They were a lovely sight. It is a state park so the sites are still larger than the nearby private campground. The access road has wide shoulders which make it convenient to ride bikes to the nearby town of Salisbury Beach. The bathrooms were cleaned frequently but there are 481 sites with no sewer hookup so at times they did get dirty but the friendly staff was working hard to keep them presentable. The family wants to return next year.

Great state park, hilly and wooded on the Raquette River Reservoir. We were impressed with the modern shower buildings! There are 2 central shower buildings and the one near loops A and B was almost new. Each shower has its own room with a toilet, sink, bench, and mirror. Loops A and B were full but there wasn't a line for the showers. We stayed in loop B and the sites along the river had filtered river views and you could walk down fish and kayak from the sites. The pads were asphalt and spacious. Read the site description since some pads were steeply angled and others had large trees next to them. Verizon cell coverage and our hotspot worked well but it was 3G so graphic intensive sites didn't load. Beach buildings were dated and the beach was really non-existent, just grass down to the river bank then step down into the river. Good but hilly biking. There are about 10 miles of hiking trails in the park. We saw a deer grazing along the opposite river bank early one morning. We will return.

A great place to stay to visit DC or for an overnight while traveling through. It is close to 95 and 495. The sites were close together but considering the location, I find it amazing that this bucolic campground is so close to everything. We were not able to level our site but otherwise it was a good site. Verizon worked well as well as the free WIFI from the campground. While we were there overnight, 3 rabbits were hopping all over the place. It was fun to watch and drove our dogs a little crazy. We are planning to return to visit the DC/Baltimore sights but this time just used it as a stopover.

We are not resort campers but we met some friends for the weekend at Lakewood. Despite the fact that the place is huge, the sites were larger than expected with at least 10 feet beyond your awning to the next site. The hook ups all worked well and were nicely placed. They pick up the garbage each morning at the site. Our cell verizon cell service worked well. The free WIFI from the campground was strong. We could see the ocean waves breaking from the front of our site even though we were not the first row. The water park was fun but still cold. The beach was clean. We enjoyed our fried seafood dinner and burgers from the "truck" parked near the beach. Great place to bring the family. The Sunday morning on site service over looking the ocean was lovely. Our site was already missing most of its grass so we did track a lot of sandy mud in and out of the motorhome. I doubt it will improve as the season progresses.

Wonderful state park with so much to do! We had a full hook up site which was semi shaded. The electric worked well. Verizon cell service was strong. It was great walking the dogs through the trails to the beach and being able to have them with us all day. We rode our bikes on the bike trail to Murrell's Inlet. It's about 2 miles to the seafood market and 4 miles to the Marshwalk.

This is an older and dated KOA. The sites are so close that your awning opens over the neighboring site sewer connection. Fortunately, no one was there. The campsites are dirt/grass so it it rains be prepared for mud. Our Verizon service worked well.The best thing about this campground is its proximity to I 95. We wanted an easy on and off and this fit the bill. There are no restaurants, convenience stores at the exit or near the campground. Office staff was friendly and helpful. We would use it again for an overnight.

We stayed during there opening weekend in the electric loop. Widely spaced sites with good paved pads. The electric service was strong. Yes, the ponies do walk through the sites several times a day and were wonderful to watch. We would have rated the campground higher but the restrooms are dated and filled with sand and the park wasn't busy yet. Can only imagine how dirty they would be in season. Loved bike riding over to the National Park visitors center on the bridge. Beautiful views! Also biked down to the National Park and went on the nature trails. It was well worth the trip. The check-in folks were helpful and friendly. The park was patrolled several times a day by rangers. We want to bring our kayaks when it is warmer since it was very cold and windy while we stayed there. Hope to return next year.

We were disappointed with our annual trip to Fishermen's Memorial State Park this year. The park is doing some major construction to upgrade and add more full hookup sites for 2015. We were aware of this when we reserved our site. However, when we checked in we were informed that they were having problems with the electric service in Area 1, but the ranger was able to correct it and all should be well. We pulled in and plugged in that is when our problems began. Our surge protector caught on fire. Fortunately, we were able to put it out. By then the entire row had lost power. The staff was very helpful and did find us another site for the night in Area 2 with power. We stayed for a week and row 70-75 did not have the power situation corrected in Area 1 during that time. Since there were other power problems in Area 1, the office was handing out printed information on how to obtain refunds from the state. In addition, we were inundated with ticks. Every night I removed several from our dogs and found some crawling around the RV. When I mentioned this to the office staff, they said the ticks were very bad this year and the staffer had even had a few on her. Normally, we love this campground and the surrounding area but did feel that do to the electrical problems and ticks they deserved a lower score for this year.

We spent 2 weeks here in 2013. The first during the last week of June and the 2nd during the last week of September. Both trips were great. Scusset is a state park so you will not find all the amenities of some private campgrounds. The sites are large and some are private with shade trees and vegetation, and some out in the open. Our Verizon cell service was excellent. The bathrooms and showers were cleaned at the posted times each day. In season, a trip to the Dune Dog cafe at the beach is fun and they often have fresh fish on the menu. The beach, breakwater and canal bike path were great activities. This trip we walked to the top of Sagamore Hill near the office and fishing pier. The trail had historical markers and markers pointing out trees and plants along the way. It is only about 1 mile round trip and worth the trip. In the fall, we did encounter a skunk in our site around 7pm when we went out to check our dinner on the grill. I guess it liked the smell, too. This is an inexpensive and pleasant base to enjoy the shore.
