Very convenient campground for a stopover. Not really intended to be a long term campground. Right off the freeway, so expect road noise. Managers are super friendly. Bathrooms and laundry are cleanest we've seen in a long time. Lounge area with TV and kitchen facilities. Small dog park and children's playground. Small lake for fishing. Great Wi-Fi. I give it a high rating because it's clean, convenient, and suited our needs. Would definitely stay here again if passing through the area.

Beautiful campground with tons of amenities. Waterslide, jumping pillow, 2 pools, splash pad area, mini golf, and more! More cabin options than I've ever seen before. We stayed only 1 night to visit Mammoth Cave. Campground is very hilly and our site was not level side-to-side. We had the largest pull-through spot in the campground (#86) and it wasn't very large. Thought we were close to the bathroom, but it was quite a hike and uphill all the way back. Most everyone had golf carts, very hard to get around otherwise (sign says "bike at your own risk"!). No designated dog park area. Nicely stocked camp store. Park seems more suited for small campers and tents, but would stay here again. Definitely a "destination campground" catering to families.

Conveniently located to Indianapolis just a few miles east on I-70. Two sections of campground: older section is hilly, further from freeway and has bathrooms and amenities. Some rigs had problems with tight turns. Newer section is flat, close to freeway (lots of road noise!), has large dog park and small playground, but no bathrooms. Sections are separated by small creek with 2 bridges. We stayed in older section on a long pull-through site. Most sites had fresh gravel. Were told to put our rug away because it kills the grass. Women's bathrooms only had two showers, both with awful shower heads. Wi-Fi spotty. Nice clubhouse and pool. Very friendly and helpful staff. Would stay here again because of location and friendly staff.

Nice campground within walking distance of Bronner's Christmas store and Zehnder's Splash Village. We got a double-wide spot which was worth the extra money. Sites were level but roads were very muddy. Nice indoor pool and hot tub, and tons of daily activities for kids. Well stocked store. Bathrooms had push-button type showers, but there are 2 large "family" bathrooms by the pool that have continuous on showers. No dog park and designated dog walk area was very small. We took our dogs to the side section that was virtually empty and let them run there. Would stay here again. Wi-Fi spotty.

Pleasantly surprised by this campground. We had a patio site in the front part. Very large concrete pad with table and 6 chairs plus BBQ grill. Sites in the back were literally right next to I-190 -- very loud road noise. Much quieter in front. pull-through sites are level. Bathrooms and showers very clean. Good cable but Wi-Fi very spotty. They sell discounted tickets to the amusement park next door -- very convenient! Close to Seneca Niagara casino and Niagara Falls. Lots of activities and amenities. Nicely stocked store, super clean and large laundry room. $1 toll every time you enter the island. Would stay here again.

Camped for one night to visit the Baseball Hall of Fame. Very clean campground. Level pull-through sites. Bathrooms were clean. Owners were on site and very nice. Good Wi-Fi connection, no cable. Large dog park but not fenced in. Very peaceful campground. Didn't take advantage of pool or other amenities due to short stay, but I would stay here again.

We were lucky to get spot 272 for one night, the best spot in the campground! Right on the water on the eastern side of the park. Then we moved to spot 340, an ocean view site with trees on the western side. A bit of a letdown but still a nice view. Spot 340 was very awkward to get into with a 5th wheel because there is a gigantic hunk of granite on the north side. Probably easier with a motorhome. No sewer at this campground, but 2 convenient dump stations. This campground had campers parked every possible way but somehow it worked. Never could get on wifi -- just too many users I guess. The older bathrooms in the back weren't as nice as the newer ones up front. The laundry was in the back, and was in constant use. For a park this crowded, they could have used more washers and dryers. There is a guy who sells lobster dinners on site every day and the food was good. A van selling homemade berry pies comes in every day, and they ring a bell as they drive through the campground. Very delicious! This campground is conveniently located to Bar Harbor, Acadia, and Ellsworth (which has basic shopping.) Don't expect a whole lot from this campground. It's worth it for the ocean view, but not so great for an interior spot. From what we could tell, most repeat visitors book their spot a year in advance, so book well in advance if you want the ocean view. The Woodlands KOA is just down the road (both corporate KOAs managed by the same person), and you can use their pool if you want to swim.

Lovely campground in a peaceful, serene setting. We had site 31 overlooking the lake. It was a huge site with large shade trees. The owners are very friendly and are working hard to upgrade the campground. We had cable tv and decent wifi access. The store has basic supplies. It was very quiet during the week but gets more crowded on weekends. Lake is nice and has canoes and pedal boats available for a small fee. Water slide available for fee. You have to pay for showers but we showered in the camper. Conveniently located to many area attractions such as Ben & Jerry's, Cabot Cheese, Montpelier, etc. Price reflects Good Sam discount plus surcharge for use of a/c. Would definitely stay here again and highly recommend this campground.

This campground is pretty conveniently located to Mount Washington and other area attractions. We got a pull-through site but without the 50 amp. I've never seen sites quite like these -- the pull-throughs are grouped in pairs (each camper pulls through from the opposite direction so their awnings are not facing each other), and between each set of two are a nice row of trees. We found that almost all of the pull-through sites are unlevel side-to-side, so you need to use wheel blocks on the down side to level up your camper. The pull-through sites are very close to the main road (115), but we didn't experience excessive road noise. We arrived on a Friday and left Monday. We were told that the logging trucks heavily use the road during the week and it's extremely noisy. We couldn't get Internet access at all until Sunday when 50 spots all checked out. Then miraculously, no problem getting on the Internet! Cable TV was good. This is a very active campground on the weekends. The recreation yard and building were in constant use! Saturday nights they have ice cream sundaes for $2.50 and Sunday mornings the pancake breakfasts are $4.50. The store is very well stocked (even had an electrical adapter that we needed in order to hook up), and the owners and staff are very friendly and helpful. This campground appears to have many more tent sites than camper sites, and those sites are very shady and secluded. While we enjoyed our stay, I think this campground would appeal more to the tent campers. I would probably stay here again.

We stayed here for 2 nights to explore the Freeport area. The road leading into this campground (and the one you will drive on to get into Freeport) is one of the worst we have driven on! Be prepared to bounce around A LOT. Look for an alternative when you leave! The campground itself is pretty much in the middle of nowhere, but it is fairly convenient to Freeport (perhaps a 15 minute drive.) The staff is very friendly. We had a large pull-through spot next to the large rec yard. The spot had 2 sewer hookups but the person who directed us seemed to have forgotten this. So we were unable to hook up our sewer during our stay and had to dump on the way out. There was no cable and we really never could connect to the Wi-Fi. There was a nice, large dog run area. Didn't use the bathrooms much, but they were a long hike from where our spot was located. It looked like they were building a brand new bathroom facility near the dog run area. There was a nice, small, well stocked store. Most repeat visitors try to get a shaded site (not the ones in the middle out in the open), but we weren't there long enough for it to matter. There were ant hills EVERYWHERE so beware! I did laundry one night and didn't realize they locked the doors at 9 PM so I had to wait until the morning to put my clothes in the dryer. There is a small arcade for the kids but most of the games were broken. The clubhouse on top was cute but nothing was going on during the days we were there. This campground was also close to Bailey Island (where we ate at Cooks Lobster House), which is a beautiful drive. We would stay here again if we were in the area.

This is by far one of the nicest campgrounds that we've ever camped at! It's extremely large and nestled on some rolling hills. It's truly a destination for most of the families here. We were, however, using it as a base to explore Boston and surrounding areas. It's fairly expensive, but if you are going to stay at the campground and take advantage of all the planned activities, it would be worth it. It has the largest dog park I've ever seen, although it's quite a hike from where our spot was (G-4 near the clubhouse.) We were in a newer area, so our spot was very level, had a nice concrete patio and lots of grass beside it. We were conveniently located near the main clubhouse. The bathrooms and showers were extremely clean. The store at the check-in area was very well stocked and prices were reasonable. They even have a concierge area to help you plan your sightseeing! I was told they had 130 employees -- unbelievable! Our water hookup was broken and was fixed immediately. Just a classy, well-run operation. The main reasons I did not give it a 10 were because 1) our internet NEVER worked the entire time we were there, 2) the laundry prices were outrageous ($3 wash, $1++ dry), the campground was almost TOO large and I could see it getting extremely crowded if all the spots were full, and 4) not sure it's worth the extra $$$ if you're out sightseeing every day. But I would highly recommend this campground and hope to stay here again.

This is a terrific campground if you want to explore Philadelphia from the New Jersey side. It's very easy to get to off of I-295. Positives: very friendly staff, clean bathrooms, showers, and laundry ($2.75 wash, $1.00 dry), pull thru level spots, wifi, cable. Cute office with comfy couches. Nice clean pool. Batting cage for a fee. There are 2 distinct areas of the campground, separated by a small pond. We stayed in the front section which is less private, but we enjoyed it. Negatives: spaces are VERY close together. Our awning nearly touched the slideout of the unit beside us. When we used the fire ring one night, the smoke blew right towards the next unit. Showers have the push knob that only stays on a few seconds and water temp isn't adjustable (although I found the temp to be pleasant.) This is NOT a "destination campground" but we would most definitely stay here again if in the area, because of the proximity to Philly and the friendly, helpful staff. (Note: we needed to have something shipped here and the office is open until 9pm and has mailboxes for each site!)

Very nice campground but overpriced. Good Sam discounts not honored for less than week stays. We had spot 96 near bathhouse. Nice paved roads and gravel spots, but no shade trees. Wifi was spotty - strong signal but too many people connected. Bathrooms could really use an update. Showers were dirty at night. Water temps were NOT adjustable! Always HOT! Not refreshing when it's already warm out. Plus you had to keep pushing the knob for about 30 seconds worth of water. Very annoying. Pool was nice but small. Store was well stocked and had good food. Didn't use beach. Music was nice at tiki hut area, but sure glad I wasn't close enough to hear it all the time! Surprised to see a nice dog wash area but disappointed that it cost $5 to use. Golf carts were all over the place, but really unnecessary. I recommend this campground, but I will try to find a cheaper option next time I'm in town.

Have stayed here several times. This time in the 300 loop. Very convenient to Settlement Trading Post and boat transportation and dog park. Spots were extremely tight and we could not back our 32 foot into spot 345. Took spot 344 instead. Over the course of the week that we were there, numerous campers had the same problem, including a 42 footer! Does no one in their office have a list of problematic sites?? Main pool seems undersized for a resort this size. Cost is extremely high, even with AAA discount. But the campground itself is gorgeous and full of shade trees. Never got to take advantage of the nightly activities due to rain every day of our stay. No WiFi but wired modem with Ethernet cable available for free. Great access to Magic Kingdom but bus service to other parks is spotty. Tried to take bus to Hollywood Studios and too many people were there. Next bus was in 30 minutes! Drove instead. Great resort, would stay again, but cost prohibitive for many families.

What a beautiful campground! We were so pleasantly surprised. We were just passing through for one night but would most definitely stay here again. The campground was huge and sites were well spaced apart. We had spot 48, a large shady pull thru spot. All spots had ample gravel. The park had two dog parks, two pools and bathroom areas. Showers were clean with good water pressure. Lots of TV channels. WiFi wasn't strong at our site. Nice small store with very reasonably priced items. Free waffles for breakfast. Super friendly staff. If you don't have a camper, they have lots of cabins and are bringing in more. Very easy access to I-95.
