Massive tree issues. The employee said all sites were the same and that we would have "no tree problems". It was scary. The entire big rig section has tons of low hanging trees. We had to change sites. We could not have gotten in or out of any of the pull through sites without hitting multiple trees. I watched another large rig have to plow through trees to get to their site. The park appears very old and full of long term renters in old, run down, trailers with lots of "stuff" stacked all around. You also have to pay $5 a day for Internet, which makes absolutely no sense. We would not stay here again.

We are not the target market for KOA parks and typically do not like or stay in them. However, while a bit too expensive for us, this is our second favorite KOA in the U.S. Quiet, nice staff, nice sites for large rigs, they agreed to trim some trees for us, nice dog park and pool area. On the negative side, the roads are dusty, I saw a couple of lose dogs several times and a large group was partying until 2 a.m. and were very noisy. Onsite staff should have stopped it, as many other campers were bothered by it. Would stay here again if in the area.

Advertised as a "luxury resort". This is a basic, acceptable campground but not a resort, in any way. The roads are not paved and dusty; there are some tree issues for large rigs; the pool is not heated; the restrooms are not air conditioned; the staff is not friendly (often posted about) and the laundry facilities are not in good repair. In addition, you have to pay to use the showers. The positives are it is off the road, so it is quiet, no train or plane noise and close to sightseeing, shopping, etc. The sights are of good length, but the back section is not completely level.

The only unpaved road in the park is the big rig loop, which makes no sense. It is extremely dusty and dirty in the big rig section. The worst we have seen all season. Also, in my 25+ years of camping, they have the rudest staff I have met. Many other guests agreed. The back in sites on one side are decent, but the ones along the other side are very sloped. The pull through sites in the middle of the loop are very close to each other. We will not stay here again.

I don't think we would stay here again. This park lost points as follows: Minus 2 points for Tengo internet, that was horrible, and we had to pay extra for it, Minus 1 point for extreme dust, Minus 1 point for noise (the camp ground is at the end of the runway for the Bar Harbor airport) and Minus 1 point for lack of enforcement of rules. We have encountered a number of dogs off lead and people race through here like they are on fire (including the employees and work campers), which is horribly unsafe and creates clouds of horrible dust. We drove through many other RV parks here that we would stay at before ever returning here.

The location is beautiful, and the staff are decent. However, we paid for one of two 50 amp sites, but were quickly informed we could only use 2 of our 3 air conditioners. Then, when reading the rules, we read that we were not allowed to wash clothes in the RV. I felt it dishonest to charge us for 50 amp, but then limit our usage.

We will not stay here again. The bathrooms were dirty, the roads are horribly dusty, we encountered several lose dogs, kids were setting off fireworks, kids throwing toys into the side of the RV, golf carts being driven by kids and recklessly, cars speeding, people partying until 2:00 a.m. and kids running through our site all day long, etc. We would not recommend this place.

Major tree issues. Huge park and all roads are one way so you have to drive quite a ways within the park to get to the sites, and we encountered a number of trees that were not trimmed. Most sites are not level, but are large. Internet is not that great. One side of the park is close to a very busy road, so noisy. Nice staff. TONS for kids and families to do. We encountered a number of loose dogs. One family violated this rule every day. I felt they should be kicked out but manager refused, but he did go talk to them.

We pulled in, paid for one night, then could not get into our site. Was told it was a gravel pad, but it was complete grass, and it was pouring rain, and the ground was super soft. The bathrooms were bad. We turned around and left. We did not even stay. Would never return. Staff was of no help. Said there was gravel at one point, but the grass just grew up over it all. Appeared everyone there was living there fulltime except maybe two. Horrible.

Date of Stay:

There is virtually no gravel, so most all the roads are mud as it rained the entire time we were here. There are also massive tree issues. The road we were told to take was impassable in a big rig. At least 10 trees would have been in our way. The staff was of no help. There are also lots of park models and fulltime residents. The location is nice, and they have two pools, playground, dog friendly, etc. I just would not call this a resort and it is way over priced, in our opinion. Don't think we would be back.

Pool allows non-park customer use, for a fee, so the bathrooms and showers are getting extensive use. Were not very clean. Sites are very close and tight, and most are not level. Also, advertised as big rig friendly but there are lots of tree issues. Thankfully we had a pull through site that would allow us to back in. If not, we would have had to leave, as there was a huge tree right in our way, even though we asked again, at check-in, if there were any tree issues and we were told no. There was trash in our site when we arrived as well.

Beautiful and clean RV resort. Nice water features, great club house and pool area. Staff are very responsive and nice. The reasons why I gave the rating I did are: very bad Internet, the resort is right on Highway 31 and it is VERY noisy and the sprinklers run 7 days a week (really, in Michigan?). Got the coach wet and the water is very hard. Horrible spots. Also, many of the sites are a bit too low in the front which will cause the front tires to come off the ground.

This park has Tengo Internet, which is the worst available. Horrible connection here. Since good providers do exist, any park using Tengo automatically loses 2 points, since it is simply a way to cut costs. This park was built by someone who has never RVed in his life. It has good and bad features. All sites are for sale. Lake side lot property goes all the way to the water so you are not allowed to walk along the lake in front of the RVs, which is odd. The owner of the lot next to us has a storage shed with a toilet and sink. However, to get water, they have to run a hose from our water source. Very odd. We always shut off our water when we leave, but can't due to them needing water. Manager is geared toward owners and not renters. No tree issues, sites are large and the grass is very nice.

Way too expensive. Rude staff. Massive construction going on to turn it into a trailer park. Horribly noisy all day and filthy dirty. Bathrooms are gross. Kiddy pool dirty. Covered area by pool had filthy tables. The grill by the pool was the dirtiest I think I have ever seen. Patio sites are overgrown weed patches. Wi-Fi is iffy. This is corporate owned. I tried to contact them. They referred me to local manager. He told me he has no authority to do anything. Complete waste of time. We will never be back.

Date of Stay:

Staff VERY unfriendly, sites very tight, some bush/tree issues. Internet is HORRIBLE. Checked the bathroom many times from 5:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. and it was dirty all day. This park is full of permanent or semi-permanent residents, many in broken down trailers with junk everywhere. Park is not dog friendly. Would not stay here again.
