Located near Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor. We have stayed here a few times before and it has been consistently good. We had a waterfront site and the fee reflects that. The sites are really tight with very little room between and even less screening. However it's convenient, easy to get in and out of, and easy to maneuver around with a big rig. The staff is helpful and friendly. They could have been a little better about their maintenance like cleaning of the fire pits and mowing. Overall we had a good stay and would return.

The other reviews of this campground I find to be accurate. The staff was super helpful and friendly and the campground is an easy drive from I-40. Shopping was close by. Verizon cell and data was strong. We spent 5 nights here. It was quiet, peaceful and uncrowded. The lumber mills may not have been in full operation because we didn't find them to be an issue. Everything quieted down at night. It is one of the most well maintained campgrounds we have stayed at. The sites are tightly spaced but maneuvering wasn't a problem with our 37 foot RV. Would definitely stay here again.

A nicely maintained park with a helpful and friendly staff. We used the downtown shuttle which was very convenient and reasonably priced. The park was easy to maneuver with our 37 foot rig, but our site and a few others in the park were a bit of a challenge for leveling. The location is easy to get to. The Wi-Fi worked great. There is a good Verizon signal for both voice and data. This is our second visit and we would return.

We wound up at this campground after being evacuated from Palo Duro Canyon State Park because of an uncontained grass fire. The owners were very friendly and helpful and kept the office open late to accommodate us refugees from the State Park. It was nine at night but a young man offered to guide us to our site and make sure we got hooked up all right. I did not find the park to be the horror the previous poster claimed. I did not use the restrooms, and I did not see garbage piled up. We did see some broken sewer caps. The office building is run down, but we felt it more important that we were treated kindly and were not taken advantage of in a difficult situation. Bottom line is that the place is in need of some upgrades and maintenance, but it was quiet, and we would not hesitate to stay here again. The grounds were easy to maneuver in our 37' fifth wheel, and we had a great Verizon cell signal. We got a discounted fee I assume because of the late arrival and short stay.

We stayed here because of the other good reviews and needed an overnight stop. The park was clean, the staff was friendly and it was very easy to maneuver our 37' RV. In contrast to the other reviews, we found this place to be very noisy day and night. The highway is busy and loud and there are a few long term residents frequently in and out with loud trucks. The trains come by about every half hour or so and blows the whistle. We had some urchins stop by to knock on our door and run away! Still it was very convenient and we would stay here again if we needed an overnight stop and the price was right. Our price reflects the Passport America discount but you must pay in cash to get it.

We needed a place to stay for the night near Athens so we went here based on other reviews. It is a little out of the way but relatively easy to get to. The roads were plenty wide enough but a bit rough so we had to go really slow. The park itself is fairly well maintained and the staff is friendly and helpful. There are many long term residents here but they seemed to keep to themselves and are quiet. You do hear some road noise and people going to work very early. Our Verizon air card and phone worked well and Walmart was not too far away. Overall it was quiet at night and we would stay here again if we needed a place to spend a night or two.

This is our second time staying at this park, it is beautiful. We had a lakeside full hookup site with great views and abundant wildlife. The staff is friendly and helpful. We have a 37' 5th wheel and had no trouble maneuvering in the park. Recommend coming in via route 150 from I-20 instead of going through town. There was too much traffic, tight turns and traffic lights coming through town. Route 150 is a nice easy and smooth ride to the park.

This is a beautiful park that is an easy drive from I-20. The staff is great and shopping is not far away. They have WiFi but we did not use it. Our Verizon phone and data worked great. The sites are large and it was easy to get around with our 37' RV. I rated it an eight because there is quite a bit of road noise because the park is very close to a busy state highway. It did quiet down at night, though. We would stay here again.

We picked this park for the convenience factor. It is an easy off and on from I-20. There is allot of noise from the highway, but it did not bother us too much. The owner was friendly and helpful. Shopping is close by and our Verizon phone and data worked well. It was easy to get around with our 37' RV and we were able to use our satellite dish. Overall not a bad spot for an overnight. We would stay here again.

We broke down just as we were entering the campground. Our one night stay turned into 7 while we got our truck repaired. This is one of the most well kept and maintained parks we have ever stayed at. The owners are friendly and helpful. There is a steep grade to go up to get to the campsites but it didn't seem to be a problem for anyone. There were quite a few pipeline workers living there. Other than hearing them leave early in the morning, they were extremely quiet and I think they went home on the weekend. The Wi-Fi worked great and they had cable TV. Good Verizon signal for data and phone. The spaces were large and the roads were easy to maneuver. We would definitely stay here again.

This is our second time at this campground. We spent a month here in April of 2011. For the time we were here this campground was great. The staff was friendly and helpful and the campground itself is quiet and peaceful. The Wi-Fi worked great and we had a strong Verizon signal both for the phone and air card. I read the previous reviews, and while there are some permanent residents, they are friendly and for the most part quiet. However, the sites are very close together and personally I would not want to be here on a holiday weekend or peak vacation time. It is one of the few parks in NH that is open year round, and for this time of year or early spring it is a good choice. We have a 37 foot RV and had plenty of room to maneuver. We would stay here again if it were the same time of year.

This was one of the last parks still open so we decided to give it a try. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Most of the seasonal help was gone, but the park was in pretty good shape. It had just rained and there were lots of puddles, but not at all muddy. Overall, the sites were spacious and maneuvering a big rig was pretty easy. Lots of nice pull through sites with full hookups and 50 amp service. Our Verizon Wi-Fi had a strong LG4TE signal and cell service was good. Did not try the park Wi-Fi. Park looks like they need to get caught up with some maintenance issues like filling in potholes and fixing up some of the tent shelters. Overall, this is a nice park with abundant river frontage and it is one of the very few parks that have a separate beach where pets are allowed. Our dog had a blast wading in the river! We would stay here again.

Beautiful well kept park right on the water. Staff very friendly and helpful. Park WiFi worked pretty good, Verizon air card worked great in part of the park not very well in other parts. It can be a little tight getting around with a big rig but we had little trouble with our 37 foot fifth wheel. It's the most we ever paid for a campsite but we were right on the water with no one to our rear or side. This is our second time staying here and will likely return.

Nice well kept park with friendly helpful staff. Just what we expect when using KOA campgrounds. Close to shopping and tourist areas. Cell phone and Verizon air card had very strong signal. The cable TV was a pleasant diversion on a rainy night. The only reason I did not rate a 10 is because it is a bit tight for maneuvering with a big rig. We stayed in a 37 foot RV. We got around okay but had to be very careful not to hit some of the trees that were on corners. We would certainly stay here again.

Campground is right on the Ocean with pretty views of the tidal river. Campsites are large and very easy to negotiate. Staff was cordial not friendly but the location more than makes up for it. There are no restroom facilities, all sites are full hookups only. It is a bit noisy because the sites are near a drawbridge and the many passing cars make a lot of noise as they pass over the expansion panels. The boat traffic is interesting though. We would likely return again.
