An excellent experience from start to finish. Great state park with easy access to and in the park with our larger RV. Must follow the directions given on the park's website as GPS and GoogleMaps has the wrong location for the park on a barely improved road not suitable for any size RV. Lots of wildlife and a very short walk to a seasonal waterfall. Spacious blacktop sites, dead quiet at night, and full hookups made this worth the 17 mile detour from our I40 travels. We would definitely stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Wonderful state park campground that is great for an overnight or several night stay. Easy access to and in the park with our larger RV. Spacious sites and a great view of the lake. Quiet at night. We will definitely return.

After a decent experience a couple years ago, this overnight stay left much to be desired. Good : Very nice office staff and clean bathhouses. Bad : $43 / night for an off-season stay in an unlevel site consisting of mud and calf-high weeds is a ripoff. Hopefully the owners spend some of my money on gravel for the sites. We will not return. Follow online directions for those with a big rig. The entrance turn coming from the east is a tight 180 degree turn.

Date of Stay:

Used as an overnight stop. Quiet at night, easy access to and in the park with our larger RV. Decent facilities, no amenities. As an overnight it was OK. If staying longer would probably look elsewhere.

Rate reflects a week's stay. Pros : well-kept and clean facilities, easy access to and in the park with our larger RV, employee who assisted us in parking was excellent, quiet at night, very pet friendly. Cons: close spaces (common to south Florida), too pet friendly if you are not a dog person (most campers had one or more dogs - many large breeds). If in area we would stay here again but would probably try other campgrounds closer to beaches and area attractions first.

Date of Stay:

Hard to describe this as a resort given the dirt interior roads but, aside from that, everything else about our stay was excellent. Made for an excellent overnight on our way south via I75. Young man checking us in couldn't have been nicer. Easy access to and in the park with our larger RV. We would certainly stay again.

Date of Stay:

Off-season overnight stay. Easy access to and in the park with our larger sized RV if you follow directions given by park. Super nice owner. We would stay again in one of the pull-through sites.

Date of Stay:

Average KOA except this one is next to a busy four lane highway and a train that makes passes by the park several times a day. Impossible to sleep through the train horn which blows from one end of the campground to the other at least two times per night. Off season stay meant not many others here when we were but the 50 amp spaces are narrow and back to back so in season you will be inches away from another RV directly behind you. We would not stay again, instead preferring somewhere quieter.

Combination of some good and mostly bad left me with a poor opinion of this park. Good: Well kept facilities and easy access to and in the park with our larger RV. Man who guided us to our site could not have been more helpful and friendly. Bad: Man at registration gave me the distinct impression that I was a barely tolerable nuisance necessary to endure in order to get to my wallet. Convinced me to pay extra for an upgraded site with concrete pad, then found upon arriving at site I had to be half off of the pad or not open any slides because of a tree immediately beside pad. Pull through was clearly an afterthought (read: chance to charge more for a badly designed site) requiring an exit through a grass yard - I'd have been reluctant to do so if ground were wet. No chance of satellite under the trees and cable was snowy and unwatchable. Campground directly adjacent to highway and train tracks. I doubt we would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Easy access to and in the park with our larger RV, but when we arrived midweek there were only 2 other campers in the park so we had easy access via interior roads and backing into our site. Had a great site overlooking Lake Erie. Staff were helpful and friendly. Enjoyed our stay and would return again.

Date of Stay:

Easy access to and in the RV park with our larger size RV. Like others mentioned, crescent shaped pull-through spaces designed by someone with no RV experience. We had some leaves touch side of RV driving through park but no tree branches. Heard distant train horn in evening but nothing during the night. Nice staff. We would certainly stay again if in the area.

Date of Stay:

Easy access to and in the park with our larger RV. Good location central to Cape Cod. Rate reflects a week's stay (off-season). Dirt sites made for quite a mess after a rain. We would stay again.

Date of Stay:

Easy access to and in the park with our larger RV. Pricey for an off-season mid-week stay; cash or check only. Park operates a shuttle to Boothbay Harbor ($2 per person) that's probably a good deal during the busy season. We would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Friendly owners and decent location were really the only positives for campground. Resort prices for campground environment ; $40 per night for electric and water site is too much. With no sewer, this is one of the few parks in which we would have used the bathhouse but it was so old and of such cheap construction we couldn't tell if it was clean or not. If there was another big-rig friendly park in the area we would stay elsewhere but this is the only choice for many miles.

Date of Stay:

Small and immaculately kept park both in landscaping and facilities. Office staff, hosts, and maintenance were all super friendly. At the off-season Passport America rate this is a spectacular bargain. The drive to Bar Harbor / Acadia is more than an hour away that used more in fuel than we saved (noted as information only, not as a negative for the park). If wanting to stay in Bangor we would definitely return.
