Best management I've seen in a long time. Absolutely no junk or trash to be seen anywhere. They even sweep the streets and use leaf blowers on the building roofs. A very family oriented campground. Some sites are unlevel and seem to be dirt topped with gravel which does seem to "give" under extreme pressure. Would like to see more sites for large, heavy motorhomes. Poor cell and satellite signals but we didn't care. Good night time lighting for dog walks and kids playing after dark.

Date of Stay:

This campground has lots of potential but seems to be neglected. Lots of junk outside the office area. The grass is unmowed (8-10" growth in most area) and hedges are overgrown. Only large grassy areas are mowed with tall grass left around picnic tables, fire rings, patio areas and occupied sites. Trees need trimming as limbs have grown over onto the sites, dragging the roof and scraping the sides of campers. Trash can placement is good but trash collection isn't timely or regular -- cans go overflowing for days. Lots of young staff around the office area. Sites and interior roads are gravel and level. Hookups are convenient except for overgrown grass around them. There is no campground lighting for night dog walks. Big black plastic rat trap boxes on several sites are certainly unwelcoming too.

Date of Stay:

This campground is overpriced. Our rate reflects taxes and Good Sam Discount. Most sites are unlevel and spread with rock. Grass is sparse. Some sites are shady, some are in sun. Picnic tables and fire pits at each site. All hookups worked as expected. It would be a good $30 camping experience, but a terrible $47 one. We wouldn't return.

Date of Stay:

Overpriced at $42.50 per night and not a resort. A few small cabins are permanent residents. Lots of old rigs. Our 50 amp site turned out to be 30 amp. Management tries hard to please the customer, providing escort to big rigs, bringing a personal trash container, and offering every assistance.

If you call, do not expect a call back until after 24 hours. The phone goes directly to voice mail -- it is NEVER answered. No one works in the office. A list of 70+ sites with arrival and departure dates is posted on the door. Bring your calendar and pen to do the process of elimination and expect to spend 30 minutes doing it. The park is adjacent to a neighborhood whose residential streets are required to access. The tree-lined streets have many low hanging branches that WILL hit everything on top of your coach. Sunday-Thursday rates are $5 less than Friday/Saturday which are $40 (30 amp) and $45 (50 amp). They charge $2 per pet per day, too. We found the park overpriced, under-managed and much too inconvenient.

Attention Dog Owners! This is not a dog friendly campground. Dogs are not allowed to be walked outside except at the dog park. Dogs cannot be walked to the dog park from your site. They must be driven in your vehicle. Big rig back-in sites #40-50 are along a noisy highway with late night casino traffic. Optional large pull-thru sites (with 50 amp) #224-229 do not have black water sewer (grey only). These sites require navigating to the rear of the park along narrow, bumpy, dusty roads under low hanging tree branches. In this area satellite reception is non-existent. The park offers no cable service to sites.

$10 per day "second pet fee" causes this campground to fall in the "overpriced" category. Massachusetts law requires rabies vaccination be shown at check-in. Low hanging branches alongside interior roads scratch sides of rig on curves. 10% Good Sam discount to everyone without proof of club membership. Unimpressive campground with plenty of potential with a few improvements.

Date of Stay:

New ownership as of August 2012 and improvements are ongoing. New husband/wife owners are "hands-on" managers who are on the property all day every day. Gravel interior roads and parking areas with grassy sites. Each site has a picnic table and fire-ring. Some sites are in shade, some in sun. Far enough off the road to be quiet but conveniently located a mile or so from downtown Ellsworth.

Date of Stay:

Overpriced. Asphalt interior roads. Wide sites on large concrete pads that are mounded making the sites unlevel. Good lighting at night. Concrete tables at each site. Campfires are not allowed. No real dog restrictions as some vicous dogs were tied outside. Many utility trailers (being lived in) scattered throughout the park with several families in each. The park does not allow tent camping but allows guests to stay in personal cars, box vans and stock trailers and most seem to be long term. We did not see any park models.

Date of Stay:

Asphalt interior roads and campsites. Fairly level. Connections are well-placed and operate well. Good night lighting. Good space between sites. Reservation online and first-come campers have frequent conflicts. The grass was almost knee high and is not well-groomed, but green and plentiful.

Date of Stay:

Paved interior roads with concrete parking pads. Pull-throughs have no patio, but back-in's do. No picnic tables or fire rings. This property is deteroriating. No security or rules enforcement. Everything that breaks stays broken. Laundry is in one of the motel rooms.

Date of Stay:

Narrow entrance to this campground. All interior roads are rocks and sandy soil. Sites are fairly spacious and some have concrete patios ($). The campground is on a sloping ridge but most sites looked relatively level. Hookups are convenient and worked properly. The ridgetop location is extremely windy during spring -- strong enough to damage slide-out covers.

Date of Stay:

Spacious campground in a beautiful setting. Service connections are convenient and work well. All asphalt interior roads and sites. Sites are unlevel. Covered picnic tables and fire rings. Well patrolled by park ranger, campground hosts and local sheriff's deputies. Dark at night, quiet and serene. An inspiring place to camp. Our rate reflects our 50% off golden age passport discount.

Date of Stay:

Most transient big rigs are assigned sites in a new area with gravel and concrete with asphalt streets in chevron design. No trees and most face west. We asked to have a site facing another direction and were put into an older section with plenty shade and some grassy areas. Pet owners take note, they don't allow portable pet pens although the restriction is not listed in list of rules.

Date of Stay:

Most transient spaces are pull-thru on gravel and level but RV's are pulled close side-to-side. Hookups are convenient and there are a few shade trees. Escort to site. Concrete sidewalks. Near the highway so road noise can be heard. We'd stay again.
