We had a site that was very near to the dump station so we would occasionally smell the odor. Site was mostly level with a mix of dirt and gravel. The roads were dirt so there was a lot of dust created when cars drove by. The campground is on the water but there is no beach, many people were out digging for clams at low tide. The pool is near the store and is small for the size of the campground. Laundry room had 5 washers of which 2 were out of order and 6 dryers. They have canoes and kayaks available to rent. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Bathrooms and showers are cleaned daily. Trolley service gave easy access to Bar Harbor, where parking is a challenge due to the volume of traffic. We would stay here again if in the area.

The most charming camp ground I have ever been to. This is a new campground about 5 years old. Roads are dirt so there is some dust created when traffic drives by. Camp sights are grass and dirt, mostly level. This use to be a kosher resort with a hotel and cabins, but hotel has been torn down. They reused some doors from the hotel in the bath house and mirrors on the wall are from the old dressers in hotel, very quaint. Bathrooms are spotless. There is a large enamel cast iron sink outside for pop ups and tents to clean dishes, another cast off from the old hotel. Game room is large and plenty of games for kids. The store has a room on second floor for board games and books or just to connect to wifi which is stronger at the store than at our campsite. Staffed by owner and her sister, they were very knowledgeable about the area and were very helpful. If you go you must ask to see the video they took of the old hotel before it was torn down very interesting if you like history. That type of resort is now a thing of the past (think Dirty Dancing). I would definitely stay here again.

We camped the last week of July. Easy access off of Route I-95. The roads and sites are gravel, so there is some dust when people drive past. It rained and there was good drainage. The bathrooms were very clean. No A/C in any facility. It costs .25 for a 7 min. shower. The laundry room has 6 washers and 6 dryers. The game room was lacking. No activities for kids.Staff was friendly and helpful.

We had site 71 which was a pull through, full hook up. Our neighbor at Site 70 (a back in site) blocked our access to our site and politely moved his truck to that we could pull in. However, it is the way the sites are laid out that caused the problem. Our site was mostly level, hook ups were with in reach. It is a very quiet, small campground. The pool is small, there is a playground, basketball hoop, and arcade, but no planned activities for kids. Campground has gravel roads, one bathhouse and laundry room with 3 washers, 2 dryers. Clean facilities, small camp store. It rained while we were here and our campsite had good drainage. I did not see standing water anywhere. If you are looking for a peaceful campground this one is for you. I would prefer activities for our 3 kids, so based on that I would not camp here again, though we loved our site, it faced the forest and there was not a lot of traffic going through the park. As others have mentioned the roads through the campground are tight. We camped here the last week in June.

We stayed here in a 32 foot fifth wheel. We were able to use the Marshall Creek Road due to bridge being repaired. It is a narrow, winding, 7 mile, two lane road with no shoulder on either side and lots of pot holes; so take your time and be careful and you will be fine. Look for a sign for the campground 1000 feet from the entrance which will be on your left. We stayed on lot c-11 and we were very happy with this location. Our site was wide and spacious but we did have to level our RV. All sites seemed to be very spacious. All roads are paved and the sites are gravel. It rained for two days while we were here and there was no standing water= good drainage. The bathrooms and showers were cleaned every morning. The showers are two rooms (shower/changing room) showers are very small. It is tight if you shower with a youngster and you have to keep pushing a button to turn on the water. I did notice a handicapped shower in another area. There are two laundry rooms with an adequate number of washers and dryers, they looked new and were all in working order. Laundry room was very clean. They have lots of activities, such as ceramics and archery, magic shows, movies, music and more. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Seasonal campers are friendly and a good resource as we met someone who had been camping there for 27 years. No golf carts are allowed, so bring your bike this is a huge campground and it was very busy when we were here. There are no life guards, however they do have people to enforce the rules, as my kids learned some enforcers are more lenient than others, but it is necessary to make sure rules are enforced and I was happy to have them there. The pools were more popular than the beach, but the beach looked nice. We chose to go to the Poconos to get away from the Maryland heat and we were not disappointed. We would definitely go here again as we were not able to see and do everything that we wanted to do in the area.

There was a lot of standing water after it rained. Many potholes that became mud holes. There are only two washers and dryers for the entire campground and one of the washers was broken. Not enough showers for the number of campers. We did not get good directions to our site. Certain staff members were extremely helpful, but some others were not very knowledgeable, perhaps they were new (they meant well). No Wi-Fi at our site, but excellent Wi-Fi at the activity center. Cable TV reception was bad, no one could help me with that. The only good things were the activities for kids, the pool and the beach. Bathrooms/showers were cleaned daily, but with all the mud it did not stay clean for long.

This is the best resort I have ever camped at. We camped in a fifth wheel. Our site was gravel and level, roads were paved. Bathrooms were cleaned daily. We ate lunch and breakfast at the café one day, it was edible but nothing to rave about. They had plenty of activities to keep the kids busy. Laundromat was large and clean. Staff was friendly and helpful. This is a large park so bring your bikes to get around. There are bike and hiking paths through the park and will take you to Lake George village if you are ambitious. The drive to Lake George Beach is about 4 miles. We don't have a dog, but I was impressed with the dog park. On my bike ride to scope the place out, I observed an large fenced in area with water fountains for people and the dogs, and an obstacle course for dogs having hoops for them to jump through with ramps and such. I did not walk into the fenced area but it is a very large piece of property for dogs and is well landscaped. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely camp here again. Tennis courts, basket ball, volley ball courts are all well maintained, there is a nice baseball field and plenty of open areas for Frisbee throwing etc. I highly recommend this camp ground.

We camped here in a 32 foot 5th wheel. They gave us a choice of wooded or open. We choose a wooded site. The main road is paved all other roads are gravel/dirt and the road to the site was narrow but we were able to maneuver our camper to our site. Speed limit is 10 MPH on main road. The rule is that you may not joy ride through the park. You may drive your vehicle to and from your site, so you will need to bring your bikes or golf cart with you because this is a huge place. There are two bike paths in the park that lead to the camp store, pool and game room. There is no Wi-Fi at camp site, but you will get it at the beach and outdoor pavilion area. The beach has a rocky shore so bring your beach shoes. The water was very clear and on the cold side (we were here in August). Showers/bathrooms and laundry room were clean. It costs .25 cents to take a shower. Staff and neighbors were friendly. We would definitely camp here again.

Pros: Clean rest room, helpful/friendly staff, paved roads, nice pool with water slides,sprinkler park for tots, activities for all, and nice playgrounds. We had a very level concrete premium site. Very quiet/peaceful park but it gets busier on weekends. Grounds and landscaping are lovely and well manicured. Cons: River swimming includes jelly fish. My kids and hubby got stung. Very small laundry room and pull cord showers. There are no A/C in bathrooms or laundry room. However, lots of retirees camp here, which would explain the peace and quiet. When we retire we would come back. Bring your bikes to get around this is a very large park.

We were in row 4. We had a concrete pad and it was very level, hence, a very easy set up when we got here. Staff is friendly. Rest rooms were clean, laundry room was adequate. No activities for kids, but they have a pool and a giant inflatable slide. We would definitely camp here again.
Date of Stay: August, 2010
We arrived on a Monday and had no trouble checking in, did notice that weekends were far busier. Campground roads are paved and campground is huge so bring bikes, scooters to get around. They do rent bikes for $40/week or $12/day. Some people brought their own golf cart or you can rent one for $50/day. We were at site Juniata 7 which was perfect for us because it was between bath room and pool/lake. Our site was completely level. My observation was that all sites were very level. Just pull in and set up camp. They cleaned the restrooms mid morning. Water park had three slides, they had a kiddie "sprinkler" park and two pools to swim in. The lake is treated so there is no algae. I did see some minnows swimming near the shore and people were fishing in same lake, but not in roped off swimming area. Beach is raked every morning and there are lounge chairs on the beach, but you can bring your own if you choose. They have an ice cream parlor and miniature golf course ($5/person/game), very nice. Weekends get busy and there are a lot of golf carts and bike riders sharing the road, speed limit is 10 MPH, and a light is recommended for your bike if you will be riding at night. We attended the crab feast $30/adult,$15/child all you can eat crabs and hot dogs, french fries, corn chowder, pork sandwich, lemonade, sweet ice tea, and beer. Police cruising the park that weekend, no problems just for security/safety reasons.

We had a pull through site and it was not level. We kept having power surges and the circuit kept tripping at the post. Rest rooms were updated. Park was clean. Pool was nice. They have a basket ball court, the concrete slab needs work, but it was OK to shoot some baskets. Gravel roads; so skip bringing the bikes. They have a volley ball area, and a nice playground. A small stocked pond to fish from. People were friendly. My only gripe was the electrical issue and we were told at the office that other people were having issues, so it wasn't just our site. This is the only reason why I would not go back.
