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.

Date of Stay:

As good as it gets. One of our favorites. Everything here is first class. Easy access to and in the park with our larger RV. We will definitely be back and look forward to our next stay here.

Date of Stay:

Review for this park dated June 2014 is exactly right on the money in every aspect. Office staff was very friendly. Ridiculous price for a campground with a pool. This park is barely big rig accessible, and not at all big rig friendly. Road to the park is narrow and roads in the park are very stressful to negotiate given the obstacles. We will not return.

Date of Stay:

Pricey for a midweek stay but park was well kept and quiet at night. Many tent sites in this park. Access to and in the park was easy for our larger RV. Best choice in the area for big rigs. We would stay again.

Date of Stay:

Easy access to and in the park with our larger RV. Woman who checked us in couldn't have been nicer. Well kept park but the price is steep given no pool and it's basically a full hookup gravel parking lot. Like others have noted, park nearly empty but we were surrounded by a convoy of traveling Canadians. They were courteous and polite but we felt out of place in the middle of their group. A space or two in between would have been welcome. I would stay here again, but next time in the area will probably look for someplace priced more in relation to the facilities provided.

Date of Stay:

Nice pull-through sites for transients. Easy access to and in the park for our larger RV. Very unique office / museum. Dated but well kept facilities. Rural park more oriented towards weekenders / locals rather than travelers. Quiet at night. Would have rated park higher were we not charged at by two off-leash growling dogs during our evening walk around the park. We would return.
