We stayed on site 100, which is a water/electric/ sewer and cable site. The site was 65 feet long and 35 feet wide with a 25 foot row of trees between the adjoining sites. The tree cover was great as it allowed privacy but also allowed a lot of sunlight to shine in on the site. The site was perfectly level, this is the first campground in which I did not have to use a board or two to level our trailer, it was perfect right where I put it. The sewer connection was also in a great location and was down hill from the site which allowed for convenient draining. Backing into the site was a little tough as the road is built into the side of a hill so I was limited in how much I could turn my truck, not a big deal, though. We came with three labs and the site was big enough for them to roam on their leashes. The only real complaint would be the age and condition of the bathhouse. It was clean but was VERY old. There was no place to put a soap dish or shampoo in the shower. Minor concerns. The campground store had a lot more goods than I have seen at other places and they serve soft serve ice cream which my dogs just loved! There is a giant checker and chess board outside the store and an indoor pool and game room. All in all a very good place and we would definitely stay here again. All the sites we saw looked just as private and spacious as ours, definitely not the "sardine can" type of a place. If you value privacy and want to explore White Mountain National Forest, I recommend this place.

The sites at Twin Tamarack were wooded but very narrow and somewhat close together. We had site 127 and we had to back up a hill to get into the site. The sewer connection was at the top of the site, on an incline and made emptying the tanks very difficult. I did not want to raise my trailer to compensate for the uphill stream. It is very well located to all of the Lakes Region attractions. The staff was very friendly and helpful. A very dog friendly campground, we have three labs. Predominately seasonal campsites however the seasonal campers were very friendly as well. Roads were very open and clear, easy to navigate with a trailer in tow. We would stay here again.

This is the third year we have opened our camping season at Moose Hillock. We had site 223 for the second straight year and absolutely have not found another campground with such spacious sites. Rest rooms and showers were clean. This is a dog friendly campground which is important as we have three labs. For the kids, there is the heated Pirate ship pool with slides. We used the air hockey and pool table in the rec hall. We walked around to look at the rest of the sites and found some even larger than ours. I don't mind paying more to get privacy for the weekend. I wish more campgrounds considered that. It gets a 10 again.

This was our second stay on Memorial Day. We used the showers which were very clean and our site had just been landscaped. We plan on making Moose Hillock our camp season opener every year. I have yet to find a campground with as large and spacious sites as there are here. Our site was 75 feet long by 40 feet wide wide a 25 foot wooded section between the sites.

We wanted a campground that was in the center of the Cape but didn't want to be in a "sardine can" type resort park. After careful research that included reading reviews given on this website, we decided to give Sweetwater Forest a try. We had site T14 which was a narrow, pull thru site. It was adequate in that it was private. The closest neighbor was easily 50 to 75 feet away as the site is parallel to the camp road. This is a very large park and had a very nice tent area. The best thing about Sweetwater Forest for us was its central location to the Cape. Having never been there, we wanted to explore every inch and this parks location allowed us to divide the cape into three days with equal travel time each day. The electrical service was very dependable as we ran our A/C the whole time we were there and they did not charge a fee. We will stay here again when we visit the Cape again.

Rest N' Nest Campground advertises itself as "the campground with elbow room". There slogan is well founded as almost every site I saw was very spacious. We had site 57 which is a water, 30 amp electric and sewer site. The site measured 90 feet long and was 30 feet wide with another 15 feet of trees and shrubs separating us from Pond Drive. The site drifted downward and was not level. The site met our approval though as we had asked for a private, wooded site. There is a good dose of Seasonal Campers at this campground but they seem to be friendly and their sites well maintained. The campground has a homemade swimming pond that needs to be seen to be appreciated. The pond has a slide and a little wharf in the middle and has nice landscaping around it. The common ground areas of the campground were well maintained and landscaped. There is a large, 3 story (basement and two floors) recreation hall that boasts an arcade in the basement and a pool table. There were also bathrooms and showers in the basement which exits to the playground area on the pond side of the campground. The second floor was used for Bingo during our stay and has a stage that could be used for live bands, a dj or karaoke. There are horseshoe pits on one side of the rec hall and an above ground pool on the other side. At the office there is a little camp store with essentials like ice, fire wood and a propane filling station. We camp with two dogs and the campground seemed to be pet friendly. The only drawback we saw was the pull thru sites appeared to be a little too short. We will stay here again.

My wife, step daughter, her friend and our two dogs spent 5 nights at Chewonki Campground from June 30th to July 5th. We booked this campground because of the reviews given on this website and it did not disappoint. The campground is impeccably clean and well cared for. The owners recycle everything! This is a dog owners kind of campground as the owners are very dog friendly and almost every campsite had a dog or two on it. We camped at site 2B which is a full hookup site. It is one of 12 sewer sites on a grassy hill and each site is a step in the knoll. The best full hookup sites are 26, NN and RB. For people with tents and pop-ups or those who don't need sewer the wooded sites are some of the most spacious I have ever seen. In terms of recreation there is a small recreation hall that resides on the simpler side of life with a ping pong table, a fooseball table and a woven mat that resembles a chessboard on a card table. There are also shelves with books and games. There is a salt water swimming pool that is very clean and also has a wade pool next to it for the little trikes. There is a clay tennis court, horseshoe pits and a volleyball net set up as well. For the golfer there is a one hole golf course that is visible from the full hook up sites. Kayaks and canoes can be rented from the store to paddle along the Montsweag River that borders the campground. The camp store has essentials like wood and ice as well as neat sweatshirts but not much else. That isn't really a problem as there is a Shaw's Supermarket a little more than a mile away. Wiscasset Airport is beside the campground and it was neat to see the little planes take off and land. The good thing is that they didn't fly at night or in the early morning. At night the place is peaceful and quiet. We will be camping here again next year.

We camped here Memorial Day weekend. Campground is very spacious and nicely wooded. We had site number 226 which is a water and electric site. The site was 80 feet long and 40 feet wide. There were no campsites behind us and our neighbors were 30 feet away with nice walking paths between the sites. There is a neat swimming pool with a pirate ship with slides. Quiet hours were a little too strictly enforced for a Saturday night. It was 10:30 and the kids and I were laughing and having a great time when a staff member asked us to quiet down. We found it a little odd. Place was very clean. There is great hiking in the area as well. We will definitely stay here again.
