Date of Stay: July, 2008
My family's fourth year at Meadowbrook didn't reveal any surprises regarding the campground. We reserved our preferred site early and the site was open when we got there. The roads were rough as they have been and some of the surrounding sites to us were tight and unlevel, but ours was nearly perfect. The most notable issue I would comment on was something I have been aware of for a long time, but never noticed until this year. That would be how absolutely quiet it is at Meadowbrook. We were there during the fourth of July weekend,the place was packed, and by 10 O'Clock, (even the night of the fourth) there wasn't a sound coming from any place on the grounds. No loud music, yelling, fireworks...nothing. Just quiet. You can sleep with windows open, and all you can hear are the crickets. I find that to be a wonderful addition for no extra cost!

Our 3rd summer visiting Meadowbrook,and overall we have been very pleased with our experiences. There is no doubt it is an old facility, and much of the park shows some sign of many harsh New England winters. The roads around the grounds are almost dangerous, wether you are walking, biking or driving. The wooded sites offer the most pleasant surroundings, but are few in number to campers much larger then 25'. The pool and rec. hall seem to keep the kid's content and the snack bar and camp store have the usual fare. The single greatest thing about Meadowbrook is the daily lobster cook-outs. Made to your personal order, the staff offers up as good a lobster dinner as any local restaurant without the wait or inconvenience of going out. Meadowbrook is located in a prime tourist region to many of Maine's most popular attractions. Nearby towns of Bath and Brunswick offer the convenience of small cities and you are only 3/4 hour to Freeport and L.L. Bean. Our family's favorite place to visit is Popham Beach. One of the most beautiful beaches in New England, it is only 25 minutes away. Over all, Meadowbrook Camping Area isn't perfect, but it is a full service facility to stay at while enjoying some of Maine's best attractions and not having to spend your life-savings on lodging.

Definitely different then the usual campground. Really a full service parking facility to store your equipment while you enjoy the Amish Country. No other amenities, but there is so much to to around the community you would be foolish to spend any time at the campgrounds except to sleep there. You are in the real deal Amish Community. Not a recreated tourist trap. Take the time to learn about these "Plain People." They are kind and considerate of tourists but would rather be left to go about their business. Beacon Hill Campgrounds has excellent accommodations for whatever your needs are. The sites are level and hook-ups are easily accessible. A little tight to get into. Very nice people run the place. Best part of our stay was meeting the other campers who were mostly older, retired people with very nice equipment and lots of interesting experiences. Really enjoyed morning coffee and sharing stories. Great place for mature adults to use as "base-camp" for a very enjoyable vacation.

Unbeleivible. Miserable, unfriendly management/owners. They really don't want kid's or family friend's in the park. Owner always hovering around site and watching every move. We are locals to the area and I grew up around the lake. I can honestly state the place doesn't look like it's been upgraded since the 70"s. Incredibly, we were ordered to leave the park the night before we were supposed to check out (with police presence) because a guest parked in a vacant site next to our's instead of visitor parking a great distance away. We offered to pay for the site even though our guests were leaving. Owner was totally out of control. Really scared the kid's. Don't go here if you want to have fun or good memories.
