We called one week ahead of time and were able to grab a cancellation for three days! Stayed in a large, deep, back in site, I think #18. Our chairs were positioned to look out at the foliage around the river offering complete privacy. The campground was full but very quiet. No hookups but we were able to run our generator during appropriate hours.

We stayed two different times during the month at this campground. It is a forested campground with nice big gravel sites. It is kept very neat and the hosts always seem to be around working and checking things. The are fire rings and tables. No hookups but generator hours. Quite a few pull thrus. Being in Cooper Landing, we went to the Princess Lodge for dinner, about 5 miles away. Lovely outdoor deck to sit and have a cocktail admiring the view! The campground was full so get there by noon and you should have no problem. We seldom make reservations.

Agree with the previous review. This is another great Alaska State Park. Site was big, neat, level and a nice grassy section. There was a host present. Vault toilets were clean. There were only three other sites taken during the week so it was quiet. We stayed three nights. Don't miss the hot springs and the road along the way has lots of moose.

If you don't need full hookups, this park is great. There are water spigots to fill your tanks if needed. There are about 40 sites, 10 of which are pull thrus. There are also a few double sites. The campground is laid out in a loop with the pull thrus in the center. All sites are very big and offer plenty of space and privacy. The vault toilets are kept incredibly clean. This park is also the park headquarters for the Alaskan State Parks so things are kept quite nice and neat. You can walk to the river for salmon fishing. Highly recommend.

Only reason to stay here is for the view! We were the only campers here for three days during the week. No hookups offered. Parked on gravel, no trees nearby to offer shade. Watched otters, eagles and seals everyday. Snow capped mountains right out the window. What a way to enjoy morning coffee. Enjoyed it more than those RV parks where motor homes are stacked close together. Camp host dropped by with information. Campground near the Valdez oil terminal.

This is a Vermont State Park with no hookups but a dump station. We had a nice, clean, and quite large site right on the water which offered privacy and scenic viewing. The restroom for our particular loop was immaculate. Surprised there was only one shower. Would not want to be there in high season! The rangers were friendly and helpful. The park was very quiet at night. We heard owls and saw eagles flying over the pond. For a day trip, we put our tow vehicle on the ferry, about an hour away, and did the 7 minute crossing to Fort Ticonderoga. Lake George is about 2 hours away. There isn't a lot to do here if you're not into fishing, hiking or just relaxing, but the local scenery is superb in the autumn. There are beautiful lakes and farmlands surrounding the campground. Lots of farm stands selling fresh, local produce. Very happy we stayed here and would return.

First of all, this is a brand new campground which is NOT completed. You should really call first to see if what they offer meets your needs. The sites offer full hookups 30/50, cable and wifi. Cable was not completed in our section, but we did see the cable trucks and personnel working there. Looks like they will be offering seasonal sites as some have brick patios. Some sites are a little too tight for our likings. We had a nice size site. We did not stay there for their amenities. We love the Rhode Island coastline and all the numerous beaches and seafood restaurants which are only 15 minutes away. Amenities offered are splash pad for kids, huge pool, adult whirlpool, tennis court, basketball court, bocce ball, horseshoes, arts & crafts and a HUGE clubhouse which is not yet completed. I'm sure there is more I did not see. The store seems a little scarce. As I said, you should call first so you won't be disappointed. Being new, they seem to still be working out all the kinks. The staff was great, friendly and helpful. This place has a future!

We stayed at this campground for 4 nights the week before Memorial Day. The weather was cool, clear and sunny, making for nice rides any time of day through the park loop. Our site accommodated our 31' motorhome and Jeep without a problem. The campground was easy to find, the entrance road was paved, park rangers were friendly and helpful. The site was pretty level and surrounded by trees offering privacy. It was very quiet at night. There are no hookups at this campground so we did use our generator during appropriate hours. There is a dump station. The restrooms were clean. We used our Senior Pass so not sure if the price I quoted is correct. With close proximity to Bar Harbor there is enough to do and we toured the island with the toad. Looking forward to returning again.

This campground did not meet our expectations. We pulled into the very narrow entrance road a 2 p.m. and walked to the office door only to find a note stating to go to the house. Where's the house? A person walking her dog, not staying at the campground, explained the house is further down the road in the middle of the campground. Fine. We walked to the house and observed the small river front sites. We knocked on the door several times and no answer. This was a good thing because we did not like anything that we saw. Old trailers, a pile of old tires, old propane tanks, close sites. We walked back to our RV and hi-tailed it out of there. This campground might be OK for tent camping, tubing on the river, but it was not the kind of place we prefer. There is a very nice state park not far away.

I called two other campgrounds first, and they were full for the weekend. When I called Country Acres, I was told they just had a cancellation, and we got the last site available and probably the best site in the campground! We loved it here! The office is very inviting from the outside and friendly on the inside. Some sites appeared to be a little closer than we prefer, but certainly doable. Our site was a little further away and offered more privacy. We were on an end site so there was no one on our left side. We backed up to a corn field and enjoyed the warm night, fire, full moon, quiet, and overall peaceful environment. The grounds are maintained and landscaped nicely and the restrooms are modern and super clean. All the other campers were friendly. This will be our first choice when in the Amish Country again. We stayed two nights.

OK campground. The best thing is the shuttle that goes to Boothbay Harbor just 3-1/2 miles away. It's a direct run and doesn't stop anywhere else, which is nice! Takes no more than 10 minutes. Office staff was nice and pleasant. We had a back in site in the wooded area with full hookup. It was quiet at night which is VERY important to us. I was just expecting a little nicer campground by all the write ups. There wasn't anything wrong with the place, just a regular campground. Yes, I would return.

It is a very nice, average size, neat campground. It appears to have a lot of seasonals, but most looked taken care of. No one was there during the week. We stayed around the back and to the right. Our site was large, full hook up, quiet and very scenic. We faced a huge open field bordered by pines, and to our right was a barn and several horses grazing behind the fences. There were other animals and just pleasant to walk around and see everything. Appeared to have a nice play area for the kids. The woman owner was very pleasant and helpful. Not sure about cable. Our internet worked perfect on our ipads. Would definitely stay here again.

Was a stop over for us on the way north. Nice park for families with the lake, beach, boat rentals and nice store. Sites are spacious offering privacy. We were able to back into our site with our 32 ft motorhome, but most sites are not level. Park is really not big rig friendly, most campers were in tents. Again, nice park, but we won't be returning because the price for a state park with no hookups is way too high.

This is a lovely, little, well kept campground. Everything was so neat and clean. Our site was adequate, close to our neighbors, as all the sites are. The hookups were great. Wifi worked good. Bathroom and showers were very clean. Laundry was good, 4 washers, 4 dryers. The area was landscaped nicely. Yup, there are trains. Yup, they are loud but really for one or two minutes only a few times a night. The road noise was much more disturbing. The road is a continuous busy one with fast noisy cars, trucks and motorcycles. Since we toured all day, we were not subjected to road noise all the time and it did quiet down a bit around 10pm. The staff was very friendly and helpful but not sure we would return here, only because of the noise.

We were fortunate enough to enjoy this park off season with no bugs, insects or mosquitoes. Our Oceanside site was gorgeous! What a view! Day 3 we asked to be moved to the bayside and they accommodated us without a problem. The wind! Continous wind for 48 hours! You could feel the motorhome moving. Bayside site 45 gave us full protection and you'd never know there were high winds outside. We were able to do some biking and walk the different trails. All the sites are very spacious and afford privacy. We did see lots of ponies in and around the campground. The rangers were all happy and friendly. The visitor center is nice and the movie informative about the island and the ponies. The rest rooms were kept extremely clean even though I never saw anyone cleaning them! Hope to return someday.
