This is a well maintained campground with helpful staff at check in. Interior road is paved and big rig access is tight. Our level gravel pull through site was only just long enough for our 40 foot motor home and towed, not overly spacious and no real privacy, and being an urban park there was as to be expected some road and plane noise. We had a picnic table, fire ring and some shade trees that did not interfere with satellite. There are some long term residents but everything was neat and tidy and there is a pool and club room behind the front office. The bathrooms and laundry were clean. Pet friendly with a dog park which has doggie bags and a disposal station. WiFi and cell were good. Plenty of food stores and restaurants in Chattanooga and very convenient for visiting the Battlefields. Not sure if we would stay here again, it is tight for a big rig, and the park becomes waterlogged when it rains.

This is a well maintained adult oriented campground, the owners were helpful and friendly at check in, and we had an escort to our site. Interior roads are paved and big rig access was good. Our spacious level pull through site was hard packed gravel with a concrete patio, picnic table,fire ring, barbecue and was plenty long enough for our forty foot motor home and towed. There was a little road noise during the day but it was quiet at night time. There appeared to be some permanent residents, but sites were neat and tidy. Bathrooms were spacious and spotless however the laundry was small and cramped. Very pet friendly with doggie bags and disposal stations. WiFi was a challenge but cell was good. The campground would make a good base to explore the area and also makes a good overnight stop. We would stay here again.

This is a fairly well maintained family oriented campground, staff were friendly and helpful at check in. Interior road is dirt and stone, big rig access is tight but doable with care. Our water/ electric only pull through site was very long and reasonably spacious but was located at the front lowest level of the park and puddled very easily even in light rain. These sites which appear to be used for overnight travelers require you to enter the campground proper to do a circular tour and head back out to the only entry for these sites at the front of the park, when leaving you have to do the same loop through the park to exit the campground, somewhat frustrating! Sites have a picnic table and fire ring but very little privacy, there are no shade trees but it is quiet, satellite friendly and we had a pretty view through our front windshield. Some of the back upper level sites have views across the campground however it could be a challenge for big rigs to get up there, it would only be worth the effort if you were staying for more than a few days. Bathrooms were clean and the laundry clean and well equipped, but a long way from our site. Pet friendly with a dog park, doggie bags and disposal station. WiFi was slow and just about usable, cell was good. There are food stores and places to eat in Staunton which is about 10 miles away. We would overnight here again, despite the convoluted entry and exit.

From the moment you drive through the front entrance it is obvious that this is a very well maintained campground. The owners greeted us at check in, and could not have been more welcoming, friendly or helpful, pride of ownership is very obvious here, they actually care about their customers, what a pleasant change! The interior road is hard packed clay and big rig access was marginal in a few areas. Our spacious level back in site was gravel, surrounded by trees, so there was plenty of privacy, and space for our towed, there was also a picnic table and fire ring. We were parked not far from the main road, so there was a little road noise from time to time, but nothing that bothered us. The bathrooms were immaculate, and the fresh cut flowers by the basins were a very nice touch. The laundry was also immaculate and had two washers and two dryers. All the grounds are very well maintained and thoughtfully laid out, with trails going though the woods to cute cabins, the fishing pond or the lovely heated pool. WiFi and cell were good, and the recycling station was easy to use. We happened upon this campground as many of the popular choices were closed for the season, what an unexpected find, how we missed it when doing our research is a mystery, as the ratings are deservedly excellent. This campground is well located for sightseeing and we would definitely stay here again. There are some lovely local restaurants and Charlottetown is 12 miles away and has all the shopping facilities and restaurants you could ever wish for.

This is a very well maintained campground, however, end of season check in was a little arduous as relief staff were not familiar with the pricing structure. Interior road is gravel with good big rig access. We had a level grass 30 amp premium water front site, with picnic table, fire ring, plenty of space for our towed, but no shade trees. The park was practically empty this late in the season, privacy would be minimal if park were full. Views from most sites are incredible, our oceanfront site had magnificent views of Fundy Bay and the small harbor of Parkers Cove. The bathrooms were clean and the laundry was small but okay. Pet friendly and lots of places to walk your pet. WiFi was adequate but there was no cell. The nearest food stores and good places to eat are in Annapolis Royal which is about 6 miles away. This park is all about the views, it has a small pool, no seasonal residents, and at full rates is incredibly overpriced, that being said we would definitely stay here again for that view. Rating reflects price and lack of 50 amp service, and the nightly rate we paid was the Fall Special price.

This is an average family oriented campground, with helpful staff at check in. Interior road is gravel, as was our 50 amp level back in site, we had no sewer and the dump station was impossible to get to in a forty foot motor home, big rig access was adequate for the camp site. Quiet during the week but hectic and noisy at weekends, some grass and a picnic table, our site backed onto a small river with ducks. Most sites were seasonal or permanent and there was a lot of junk around them. Bathrooms were dated but spotlessly clean, and the laundry clean and well equipped. There is a small pool at the rear of the property. Construction work on the bridge overpass makes it extremely tight for big rigs to get to the campground. We would not stay here again.

This is a typical KOA looking a little worn around the edges. Interior road is dirt and gravel and big rig access is average. We had an escort to our level spacious gravel and dirt pull through site which had plenty of space for our towed. The site had a concrete patio, picnic table and swing. No satellite reception due to many matureI'm trees, WiFi and cell were fair, however there is some road noise. Bathrooms were spotless and the laundry clean spacious and well equipped. Pet friendly with a fenced dog park, doggie bags and disposal station. This is a good overnight stop when traveling 1-81, and we would stay here again.

This is a newly built campground, staff at check in were helpful but seemed a little disorganized! Interior roads and pads are gravel, big rig access was good. Our site was a spacious and level pull through however they are side to side which means you share your picnic area with your neighbor and there were no sewer hookups. We were here late in the season so it was very quiet, but we could hear the constant hum of the power plant. There is not a lot of privacy between sites, and as yet the newly planted trees are too small to give any shade, but we had plenty of space for our towed, picnic table and fire ring. We had some very pretty views of the hills through our front windshield. The laundry was clean but had two dryers out of order, the bathrooms were very spacious and exceptionally clean. Pet friendly with doggie bags and disposal station, but no dog walk. WiFi and cell were good. Given time this will be a great campground and we would certainly stay here again, it was perfect for an overnight stop, but signage to the campground was very poor, making it a challenge to find the campground!

This is a fairly well maintained campground with helpful and friendly staff at check in. Interior road is sand and gravel, big rig access was average. Our spacious level pull through site was also sand and gravel, it was quiet and had a picnic table, fire ring and plenty of space to park our towed. The area is lightly wooded but not a lot of privacy around our RV. The bathrooms were very clean and modern and the laundry was clean and well equipped. There is a security gate 24/7 which we liked. Very pet friendly with a lovely dog walk and plenty of doggie bags and disposal station, the Cape Cod Bike Trail is also located behind the campground. WiFi and cell were good. There is plenty of shopping in the area. We would stay here again.

This is a fairly well maintained campground, with very helpful owners at check in. Interior road was paved and big rig access was average. Our fairly spacious back in level site had a concrete pad, not a lot of privacy between sites, but we did have a picnic table, fire ring, space for our towed and some shade trees at the rear of our site. There was no view and although the campground was full, it was too our surprise, extremely quiet, there is a small pool up by the front entrance. The bathrooms were clean and the laundry small but had plenty of washers and dryers. There is a security gate used at night time, which is always reassuring. Pet friendly with a small dog park and dog walking area but no doggie bags or disposal station. WiFi and cell were both good. Newburyport is just over the bridge and is a wonderful town, it has all the food stores and restaurants that you might need, and there is plenty of sightseeing close by. We would stay here again.

This campground was showing some end of season wear. Interior road was gravel and big rig access was fair. Our gravel level site was adequate, we pulled in to the back in site to get a wonderful view of the ocean and beach, this meant that the utilities 30amp plus water were on the wrong side, but no big deal. If you have a motor home choose the back in water front sites as the pull throughs will not afford you a view of the water through your windshield. The campground was very quiet with no road noise at all, no privacy between sites, there were a few shade trees but it did not interfere with satellite reception. We had space for our towed, a picnic table and fire ring. The bathrooms were clean and the laundry had a couple of washers and dryers. As other reviewers have mentioned it was not overly pet friendly, however there were doggie bags and a disposal station. WiFi and cell were good. Food stores, restaurants are close by in Belfast, and plenty of wonderful sightseeing up and down the coast. It's all about the view and we would stay here again.

This is a fairly well maintained campground, staff were helpful at check in. The interior road is gravel with some pot holes, big rig access was fair. Our premium water front site was spacious, level, gravel and grass, well shaded and screened from neighbors, we had a picnic table and fire ring, plenty of space for our towed. We pulled into the back in site to take advantage of the superb water view, which meant running utilities under the coach. Bathrooms were clean however, disappointing for this class of campground, the laundry was clean and well equipped. Pet friendly but no doggie bags or disposal stations. WiFi was an extra cost, which is outrageous considering the price of this campground, there was however a free hot spot in the clubhouse, AT&T cell was okay. Plenty of food stores and restaurants about 6 miles down the road, the campground is ideally placed for exploring Mount Desert Island, and Bar Harbor area. There is some noise from the small local airport, which did not bother us. This campground is all about the view and is way overpriced for the amenities offered, there are more reasonable alternatives in the area, however, this late in the season most of them have already shut down. If not for the view we would have rated this campground lower.

This is a gem of a Provincial park, and is very well maintained and thoughtfully laid out. The interior road is gravel as was our very spacious level back in site, and big rig access was good. Very quiet with lots of privacy, shade trees, grass, fire pit and picnic table, plenty of space for our towed too. The view from our site was spectacular, water views in every direction. Bathrooms were modern clean and spacious, no laundry There is a security gate 24/7 which was very reassuring, and you are given your own pass card. Very pet friendly and lots of trails to walk your pet, on a leash of course. We could not get any WiFi but cell was okay. Chester is a wonderful town, with food stores, great restaurants and very unique shops, lots to see and do in this area. We would definitely stay here again.

This is typical KOA that has seen better days and is now very tired and worn out. The hosts at check in were very friendly and helpful and a mine of information on anything to do with the area. The interior road is gravel. The campground is set on three elevated grass levels and our very spacious long and level pull through site was grass and gravel, with a wonderful view of the Bras D'or Lake and Seal Island Bridge from our front window. Very quiet, some privacy and plenty of space for our towed, a few shade trees but not every site had them, lots of grass between you and your neighbor as well as a picnic table. Bathrooms were clean but dated, however the outside laundry, as noted by a previous reviewer, was a disgrace, and thankfully I did my laundry before we arrived, it was filthy with cobwebs, spiders and assorted bugs everywhere, just plain nasty! A sign on the front fence said the campground was security patrolled, it's very pet friendly but no pick up bags or disposal station. Big rig access was good as was WiFi and cell. There are a couple of restaurants just over the bridge with food stores and more restaurants in North Sydney. This is a good location with plenty of sightseeing in every direction. This campground could be a goldmine, but the owner needs to spend some money and time on the place. Despite the few negatives, we would certainly stay here again, the great location and the wonderful views are the things that really make this campground.

This is a well maintained family oriented campground, with helpful and friendly staff at check in. Interior road is gravel. Our grass site was a level and long pull through with space to park our towed, big rig access was marginal. Fairly quiet with shade trees and a picnic table, there are a lot of seasonal sites but all were neat and tidy. There is a small pool. The bathrooms were dated but clean, however the laundry needed a good clean. A small security gate was used after 10pm. Pet friendly but we did not see any doggie bags or disposal stations. WiFi was only available at sites near the office and satellite was a challenge but cell was good. There was the occasional noise from a train, but it did not worry us. We would stay here again.
