This is a newer campground with mostly open sites, although a few have some shade. It is just 1-2 miles off I-95. Take it slow at the entrance as it is a bit odd turning in. The bathrooms/showers are modern and clean. There are several pull-through sites that are long enough for a motor home and towed. Water/sewer/electric/cable were all very good. Most of the roads are paved (some sand) but the site pads are sand, which is pretty messy. The grass was very tall at the sites, but each site has a lovely newer picnic table. Laundry room has newer appliances and is very clean. The pool is lovely. There is a catch and release pond. It is necessary to back over or drive over a curb to get to your site, but they are lower, soft-edged curbs and it’s not too bad. If the grass were cut and the sites were paved, it would be a solid 10. We liked it here and will stay here again.

The rate is Passport America. The gal behind the counter was very pleasant. The one unisex restroom/shower (you need a key) was in one of the motel rooms, and it was clean, secure & useable. The cable was good. The Wifi did not work. The campground is directly behind and next to a motel. We would not use the word campground, but more like trailer park with a few RV hookups available. There are many old, very run-down, permanent trailers & mobile homes in the park. We had no table & the spot we were assigned was very narrow at the back, with an embankment to the electric on one side, and an embankment to a shared water source on the other. It was a challenge to level. The weeds were 3 feet high throughout the park and at our site. Roads are crushed gravel and sites are weeds, grass & some dirt. There is a lot of junk stored on the property. Trains run next to the property & you are under the flight path of the air station. We would choose another campground next time.

This small campground is in a very convenient location in Clinton. We loved the senior rate. You can drive a short distance to get the Metro at Branch Station, which will take you into the D.C. area. You pick your site here and then go out of the campground, down the road and through another part of the park to register. It is not a short walk. The water hookup was in an odd spot, but the water was good, as was the 30 amp electric. The heavily wooded sites were partially paved but most were super small. Roads were paved also. There is plenty of privacy. We picked up many local antenna TV stations. The bathrooms were unacceptable & beyond being able to be really clean. They need to be gutted & totally redone. The men’s shower was so bad that men were using the only women’s shower, which is secured with only a shower curtain. The dump station was a very odd mechanism and the tank overflowed once we began the process of dumping. It was beyond awful. The bathroom and dump station problems pull this rating way down. We will look for another solution next time unless the bathrooms are redone.

The fee includes the rate plus $9 Reserve America fee plus a $5 out of state fee. We camped in the H (Heron) loop, so this review is for there. The roads are mostly paved. The sites are huge & open, with gravel & grass. Electric is good, but towers are set very far back in the site. No water or sewer at these sites, but water sources are plentiful on the road and there are dump stations as you leave. Our Verizon phone & Hotspot worked well & we were able to get a couple of local TV stations. This loop is a fair distance from the other loops, the marina, beach, store, laundry & recycle/trash areas. A large body of water called Eel Bay is about 100 feet behind several sites, but that area is too heavily wooded for access to or viewing of the water. That is unfortunate. Bathrooms were pretty clean & updated. We loved 2 private facilities labeled wheelchair accessible with toilet, sink & shower. The nature center was small but interesting and daily activities for it were posted in the campground. The butterfly house was nothing special. Every trip from the mainland to the park will cost $2.50 (car only) over the bridge. Be sure to take a right out of the park & drive down to the small community of Fineview as it is beautiful! We liked it here and would stay again, but we want the “F” loop next time.

Some of the road and sites are pretty tight to maneuver here. Get good directions to your site. We loved that free buses run back & forth to the amusement park and Chocolate World. You can also get a free bus connect to go to the gardens and the Hershey Hotel. Admission to everything can be purchased at the campground office for a big discount, which is good as the campground was overpriced to us. The restrooms near us were new, ample and clean. We only had water/electric/cable hookups (no sewer) but they were good. Roads are paved, but sites are gravel. Cabins are available if you have family joining you. The loop we were on had many trains passing very close all day & night & that was a big negative. The staff was super pleasant. When we pulled up to our site, we were concerned about some low hanging branches, which they quickly came over & trimmed for us. The campground has a nice atmosphere. We would stay there again, but not near the railroad tracks.

The grounds of this family run campground are beautiful with many grassy, water front (large pond) sites. The pond is stocked and no fishing license required. The campground is peaceful & the owners are mowing continually. Water, sewer & electric were good & we were able to pick up a few local TV channels. The owners were friendly & anxious to make our stay enjoyable. The restrooms were clean but need updating. Roads were shale & dirt and needed grading or paving. We had problems in the small laundry room & reported it and they seemed anxious to attend to the issues. The game room was pretty much closed down. They had weekend activities that were fun. The WIFI had a fee and we did not use it. We liked it here and would return.

Be sure to follow the signs to go straight to Campground Check-In before you turn down Campground Road or you will travel miles out of your way on a bad road. Very few river view sites are available. Most sites are on grass and maybe over a curb to get in. The restrooms/showers need a serious upgrade & cleaning. Our site was $25 plus a $5 out of state fee and $9 Reserve America fee, so $39 which is high for an electric only site. The roads inside the campground were paved and very good. The location to the Eisenhower Lock is excellent and the lock visitor center will give you a number to call to find out when a big ship will come in to watch. The dam project has a lovely visitor center also with a great view. No TV reception but our Verizon Wifi worked. It was OK here, but we would check around for next time.

Our rate was for water and 30 amp electric only (no sewer). The campground is walking distance to a lovely beach park on Lake Champlain and to the Burlington Bikeway which is part of the Champlain Bikeway. We casual bike and found it very beautiful and enjoyable. You can take a short bike path ride to the Burlington waterfront. Sites are mostly grass and have a fair amount of shade. Campground roads are terrible. Water and electric were very good. Restrooms are inadequate for the number of sites, plus cleaning them at 8AM was poor planning. We did like it here and would return.

This campground is in a large grassy area. Sites are grassy with some having a bit of gravel. Roads are gravel. Water/sewer/electric & cable worked very well. We could not get WIFI at the site at all and our Verizon Mobile Hotspot did not work very well. The location is perfect for touring Stowe and Waterbury. The sites seem to be close together, but the owner places you so that you have excellent space between units. There is plenty of room for maneuvering. The restrooms and showers need some serious attention, updating and deep cleaning. We liked it here and would stay again.

They do offer a 10% discount on rates for Good Sam. The water/sewer/electric were all good. Roads and sites are mostly dirt with some gravel. Most sites have a good amount of shade and a fair share of bugs (bring your spray). The cable worked well, but we could only get Wi-Fi in the activity room or laundry room. Wi-Fi worked very well in those areas. Laundry area was very clean, as were the restrooms. Showers were $.25 for 10 minutes. Owners provide printed directions for area drives which are well done. They work with you if you need to make a change. Most RV sites are pretty close together. There is a nice camp store on premises. We liked it here and would stay again.

The WiFi & cable are excellent here as is the staff, who were ready to assist in any way they could. The bathrooms were very tired and outdated and needed a good deep cleaning. Showers were free. They had a Good Sam sign on the window, but no longer offer that discount. They do offer a military (including veteran) discount. The pool looked in good shape. We did not get an escort to our site, but were given the opportunity to look over sites and pick the one we wanted. Lots of mowing going on. Some 50 amp sites were available, but they did not have cable. It was a good overnight stop and we would stay again.

Date of Stay:

We stopped here on our way to Maine as an overnight. It works for us as the park is not crowded so there is plenty of room to pull in and not have to unhook. The water/sewer was good. Only 30 amp service is available. The Wi-Fi works best in the laundry room, otherwise did not work for us. Restrooms/showers are clean but dated. Park is not far off the highway, which we liked. We were here directly after the Tropical Storm Arthur and while there were some puddles, it was not flooded at all. If you come, take a walk to the top of the hill where the flags are as you can see for miles, including the harbor. We would stay overnight again.

This is a nice campground and the closest to Acadia National Park, and it is reasonably priced. They do not take reservations or credit cards. You drive in, pick your spot, set up and then register. Lots of types of sites are in the park. The best choices are right about check-out time, at noon. We had a water, sewer, and 30 amp site, which all were good. The restrooms were clean and the laundry was too (only $1 to wash, $1 to dry/load). Some sites are in the open and some in the forest. Leveling can be challenging. We had a site near the laundry and the free Wi-Fi worked well, as did our Verizon data device. No cable, but we got some local stations with antenna. The campground is on a mountain top and you can see local water from spots in the park, but it is not waterfront. Local free bus service takes you to the National Park and to Bar Harbor throughout the day. We liked our spot and the campground. We would stay again.

Date of Stay:

We had one of the 30 amp electric with water sites for our price. All the sites are in wooded areas and are either grass or gravel with dirt. We could not get any TV reception at all. We did not find a lot of close-by area activities. This is a campground, not an RV park. The campground did offer waterfront Searsport Harbor on the Penobscot River access, not ocean access. When tide is out, the beach is very rocky. We did not see any tidal pools as advertised. The roads are gravel & could use grading. Restrooms & laundry area were very clean. There was a resident wood artist, but we did not take advantage of visiting with him. We thought the rate was a tad high for this campground. The campground was OK for overnight, but we would try another if in the area again.

Date of Stay:

Nice campground for an excellent Passport America price (for 30 amp service). Full hookups, including cable and free Wi-Fi, were good. Restrooms were very clean. Park staff very friendly and helpful. Grounds were well tended. Small store in the campground had lots of choices. If the roads and sites were paved, it would deserve a 10 rating. We would stay here again.
