Our pull-thru site was paved, level and more than long enough for our 40 ft. motorhome and toad. Park is clean and well-maintained. Good Verizon signal. No trees tall enough to block our satellite dish. Cable TV has about two dozen channels. As other reviewers have noted hookups are towards the rear of the sites. This is fine for a trailer or 5th-wheel, but if you have a motorhome with a toad, you'll either need extensions for your hookups or you'll have to unhook your toad.

Our site was a gravel pull-thru that was level and long enough for our 40 ft. motor home, but would have been tight if we had our towed vehicle with us. Trees blocked our satellite dish and there was no cable TV but there are about a half-dozen over-air channels. Good Verizon signal. Not in the best part of town but there is 24-hour security. Campground is clean and well-maintained. Trash pickup from site twice a day. Good place to visit Elvis Presley's Graceland Mansion and anything else in the area.

Our site was a long gravel pull-thru with more than enough room for our 40 ft motor home and towed vehicle. Site was level and there were no trees to block our satellite dish. Good Verizon signal. Although close to the freeway there was little traffic noise. Very good for an overnight stay. A little difficult to get to from I-30 west. Recommend getting off on exit 118, take Congo Road overpass to get to east-bound side frontage road (stay in right lane on overpass).

Our gravel pull-thru was level and more than long enough for our 40 ft motor home and toad. Campground was clean and well-maintained. Roads are gravel and easy to navigate. Staff were helpful and friendly. We were escorted to our site by the campground manager. Our site was wide with some screening from our neighbors and included a patio with table and chairs. Adequate selection of cable channels, mostly local. No trees blocked our satellite TV. Good Verizon signal. There was on-site trash pick-up and we had a local newspaper delivered to us each day we were there. We would stay here again.

Our concrete pad was level and just long enough for our 40 ft motor home and tow dolly. We had an upgraded site with a parking place for our car next door and we needed it. A campground host guided us to our site. Paved roads are a touch narrow but we had no problems getting to our site. Campground is very clean and well maintained. There was a reasonable amount of room between sites and our site had a patio with a picnic table. No trees to block our satellite TV but some sites would have a problem. No cable TV, just local over-the-air channels. Average wifi. Good Verizon signal. Although it wasn't hard to find the campground there is almost no road signage to direct you there. We liked the campground and will probably stay here again.

Our gravel pull-thru site was level and long enough for our 40 ft motor home and toad. Friendly office staff. Campground was clean and well-maintained. No trees to block satellite TV. Good cable TV. Good Verizon signal. Gravel roads were comfortably wide. Traffic noise was noticeable but okay with the windows closed. Easy on and off the interstate. It's a convenient stopover point for us. We've stayed here before and will stay again.

Our concrete pull-thru site was level and more than long enough for our 40 ft motor home and toad. Campground is very clean and well maintained. Friendly and helpful staff. We called the office a short time after we got there because of a problem with the cable TV and there was somebody at our site to look at it within 5 minutes. No trees to block our satellite TV. Good cable TV (problem was our TV not their system). Good Verizon signal. Trash pickup at site. Roads were a touch narrow but paved and in good condition. We would stay here again.

Our gravel pull-thru was level and more than long enough. Friendly staff. Clean and well maintained. Very good selection of cable channels. Our satellite TV was blocked by a tree and many other sites would have the same problem. Good Verizon signal. The campground is right next to the interstate and traffic noise was quite noticeable, even with our windows closed. Good for an overnight stay.

Our gravel pull-thru site was level and more than long enough. Friendly staff. Although the campground overall was clean and well-maintained the dumpster was overflowing the night we were there. Good selection of cable channels. No trees to block our satellite TV but some sections of the campground have a lot of trees that would get in the way. Good Verizon signal. Traffic noise from the local interstate was noticeable. Good for an overnight stay.

Our gravel pull-thru was level and more than long enough for our 40 ft RV and toad. Friendly staff. Campground is well maintained and very clean. Trees blocked our satellite TV and would block most other sites, too. Local TV channels had all major networks. Good Verizon signal. Excellent WiFi; however, campground was only lightly occupied while we were there. Although right next to the freeway traffic noise was relatively low. A minor complaint is that there are only two dumpsters for the entire campground and they are centrally located and a little inconvenient. Other than that and the trees we would give the campground top marks.

Our grass pull-thru site was more than long enough for our 40 ft RV and toad. Very friendly and helpful staff. Campground was clean and well-maintained. Our site was somewhat unlevel, mostly front-to-back. Septic hookup was for gray water only. Good selection of cable channels. No trees to block our satellite TV. Fair Verizon signal. This campground is mostly seasonals with about dozen or so sites for over-nighters. Do not use exit 12 on I-86 because it has an 11 foot bridge. From west use exit 11 or from east use exit 14.

Rate is based on a month-long stay. Our grass pull-through site was level and long enough for our 40 foot RV with ample room to park our toad along side. This campground is all about location since there aren't many amenities. Beautiful view of Deer Island and Passamaquoddy Bay out our front window. We like Eastport and the surrounding area a lot. Good cable. Most sites have no trees to block satellite signal. The only down side is that there is no 3G/4G cell service in the area and cell phones connect to towers in Canada. Campground WiFi is free for 30 minutes every 24 hours and $30 for a month. It is slow at the best of times and throughput is throttled. We have been here several times and expect to return.

Our gravel pull-through site was more than long enough for our 40 ft motor home and toad but mildly unlevel side-to-side. Park was clean and well-maintained. Friendly office staff. Some tall trees but none blocked our satellite dish, however some sites may have a problem. Did not test Wi-Fi. Good Verizon signal. Good cable TV. Right next to the freeway so there was a fair amount of traffic noise. Good for an overnight stay.

Campground has new owners and has been re-named Badgerlands Campground. Our premium gravel pull-thru site was long enough for our 40 ft motor home and toad and reasonably level. Roads inside the campground are narrow with sharp turns and low-hanging branches that made it difficult to maneuver our motor home. This is an older campground filled mostly with seasonals. Campground is clean and well maintained. Helpful and friendly staff. Plenty of trees, although none blocked our satellite dish that was luck. Good Verizon signal. We chose this campground by chance while traveling on I-90. Nice enough in its own way but not set up for over-nighters and overpriced for what we got.

Our gravel pull-thru was long enough for our 40 ft RV and toad but was mildly unlevel side-to-side. Friendly and helpful staff. Campground was clean and well-maintained. No trees tall enough to block our satellite dish. Adequate cable. Excellent Verizon signal. An annoyance was that there is only one trash dumpster/trailer for the entire park and it was MIA the morning we left.
