A campground with full hookups (11 at my count) and space for large rigs, yet small, quiet, attractive and friendly. The best of both worlds.The full hookup sites are on a gently sloping grassed hillside with views of the tidal salt marsh and inlets. Two or three of the sites are right on the water (salt marsh) but have no hookups. This would be a perfect campground for those with kayaks/canoes/small boats with motors. You can explore the immediate tidal estuary around the campground, or head out to the Sheepscot River estuary and eventually the ocean, if you're that adventurous. We used the campground as a base to visit our children in Maine, and had our grandson visit for an afternoon. The saltwater pool is the nicest (clean, large) pool we have seen in any campground, and we have been to many. A little chilly perhaps, but warmer than ocean water in Maine. The only caveat, and a small one, is that to use the pull through capability of our site would have required traversing several hundred feet of mowed grassy meadow at a slight upslope. Since our truck is 2 wheel drive, and the grass was a little damp from previous evening rain, I opted to back out and leave via the gravel road we used to pull in. Not a problem for us, and if you have 4 wheel drive, not a problem either way for you. Would certainly come here again, and probably will. We camped at Chewonki Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a very nice, family oriented campground located off Rt. 44 3 miles west of Plymouth Harbor. There is no swimming pool, but they have a lake and sandy beach which is nice. There is a good mix of sites available, from tent only to sites large enough for big Class A motorhomes. Our full hookup site was huge, and more than accommodated our 30 ft. fifth wheel. The two nights we were there we saw older, retired couples in large rigs, semi-retired grandpa's and grandma's like us, families with small kids and babies, and everything in between. The campfire rings were natural stone, not tire rims, with a large headstone. The staff at the office were friendly and courteous. They have theme weekends throughout the summer. It was western weekend when we were there. The campground is well off US Rt. 44, so there was no road/traffic noise. It is located nicely for visits to Plymouth Plantation or Cape Cod. The only drawback for pet owners is that no pets are allowed. We don't have one so it was not an issue for us. We would go back. We camped at Pinewood Lodge Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

As an alternative to the higher priced parks in Wells, this is acceptable. Owners very nice and helpful, which helps make up for the limited facilities. This is an older, totally wooded park, with most of the sites occupied by seasonal units. The pull-thru site we had was narrow, but we got in ok with our 30' fifth wheel. We were camping with another couple who had a 25' travel trailer. They were not able to pull forward out of their site, and had to have 2 men plus wife guide the husband as he backed out. Don't know if this is common place or not. We had our 2 adult daughters with us, but their rates are based on 4 people, so we didn't pay extra. We enjoyed our stay and would probably go back, if only to save money. Most of the other rv parks in Wells are around $50/night. Our daughter brought her car, so we only paid $29 plus tax per night, for full hookups and cable TV. If you're comfortable handling your rig and want to save money, give it a try. We camped at Stadig Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This was one of the best campgrounds we stayed in during our month long western trip. Owners are young couple with small children, very friendly. They gave us the last pull-thru they had. Swimming pool was very clean and neat. We stayed there on a Friday night, and they had an ice cream social and "entertainment". A bunch of 50-60 something ladies called the "Hot Flash Tappers." They did tap dances to Broadway tunes that one of their husbands played on a boom box. Told corny jokes. Very enjoyable. Would easily camp here if ever out that way again. We camped at Brigham City / Perry South KOA in a Fifth Wheel.
