Really great people. Nice sites with lots of choices. Plenty to do for the kids. Hard to get into for the summer but they try to make it work for you. Good facilities, Verizon works great, local channels are pretty good no cable. Perfect area if you want to go to the racetrack. Close to the lake and great farmland and stands. Wine country of course is why a large number of people who comes here. Nice group that stays during the summer. Easy in and out lots of good walking/biking and playing. Incredible jumping canvas for the kids. Don't know how to explain it but I enjoyed it - good exercise. I joined KOA discount club for the first time and 1 week stay there paid for itself.

Wooded area with reasonable roads, not a lot of asphalt mostly dirt and gravel but reasonable. Large place with a couple of pools, lots for the kids to do and clean laundry. Arcade for the kids and lots of games etc. Nice staff. No frills lots of kids but no bother. We had electric, water, cable (no sewer) all hookups good. Used Verizon wireless cell and wifi worked great. Just dirt and grass level sites but not bad. We only were passing thru - no reason to go back but if you need a place in the area it is fine. Convenient enough to Saratoga race track and Lake George but 20-30 minute drive to both. Easy to get to etc.

Passport America is the only reason we stayed here for two nights on our way back south from northern Maine. If you have kids this is the place to be. We do not. Mainly seasonal so if you want to stay a few days, harder and cramped area. The short term sites are small, close together and full of tents and kids. We had electric, water and cable. The half off PA price was worth it though. The pool is right out of window and the basketball courts and other kids play area, right next to us. The entire area is a beach playground. If you want boardwalk type stuff and have kids to entertain this is great. We only staying on our way south and would try something else next time. Verizon coverage good - not great but enough for me to make good calls and slower but steady data. Close to the other small towns so we could explore the area. Did I mention cheap? Everything worked well. Recently bought by Sun so improvements were obvious. Gated entrance. Close to things you need.

Great over all place. This area is expensive. This campground is right before you go over the bridge onto Mt. Desert. This is a corporate owned RV camp that has had some improvements. it has nice level gravel spots. Not too crowded. Good roads, great staff, the view is lovely to the ocean/bay. There are lots of different options; views are expensive but they have cheaper areas too. All hookups work great. Good cell coverage. The Wi-Fi is pay to use but we do not use it anyway. There are great lobster pounds right down the road. Down east is the best all around for lobster and crab for sure. Simple and the best prices but they don't have a huge menu. The crab roll is simple on simply perfectly toasted bun. Very amazing. Ate lobster and crab every day so this ended up being the best place. The CG is an easy drive into Acadia or Bar Harbor or any of the other areas. Great heated pool. Very open for the most part but some shaded areas. Lots of motor homes, maybe because it was really easy access. Some of the other places looked smaller and wooded. If you need cell coverage make sure you stay in this area and not on the quiet side around Bass Harbor.

For what we want, this was a great place. Smallish with a few seasonals but very friendly. It is an old family run place with a sort of terraced type feel. There are a few sites on the lake but most across the street and up a hill. If you are worried about driving in a small hilly area, this might not be great for you. The top, where we stayed is up the hill and in an open area but the terraces are slightly tight. Great small view but the lake is right down the hill and access is good except crossing the road. The beach is great. Some people had jet skis and left them on the beach. We had a small boat and used it every day. The lake is lovely there with nice homes on the island. There is a small state park across the bridge. The people are great. The sites are big enough but the power is sort of questionable. We lost it a couple times and blew it with too much usage but it was OK. There is a play area on the top of the hill we saw kids playing. Other campers were nice and very friendly. We would stay there again because we like the feel. It is a little out of the way from any town but we enjoyed the lake.

This is a nice campground on a small lake. The little beach is lovely with a volley ball net and area you can fish or put a small boat in, etc. The lake is small but if you just want to get into some nice New England water then it is perfect. People were nice, TV and cell coverage was good. Small but good roads and wooded environment. One way system but once you get the hang of it. The sister campground across the street has pool and hot tub but we did not use. The location is good for Meredith and the lake. Nothing special but could not really find anything in the area that was great.

Date of Stay:

Like most of the New England area, this is a seasonal area. Lots of people come on the weekends with their families. This campground is wooded and the bugs are bad but that is normal if you are in the woods. Good location near Meredith town and the lake but not on the lake or anywhere walking to. We had number 4 and it was reasonably easy pull-through for our fifth wheel. Not a big place but you can stroll through for a short walk. We don't have kids so not sure about the kids' activities but I think playground. Nice staff. Would not stay here again only because not an area I want to be in. TV was good and Verizon cell coverage good.

We liked it because it was in town, on Lake Champlain (the sites were not but you could walk in two minutes). Everything clean and tidy. Everything worked, local TV reception good. Sites were not tight but you had to back in. Not bad just not all easy. We had number 1 which was by the entrance and the daily people walked by but not a real bother. Plenty of activity - kids around but not noisy or horrible. The water is beautiful and the closeness to town was great for a change. Would stay there again for sure. Money for value in the area it was great. Verizon cell coverage perfect. We don't use the Wi-Fi so can't remember but don't think they had any.

My first real bad rating but we needed a place to stop on a long trip just for the night. The place is not where I would ever go if I needed to stay longer. The only goodness was, the field that we got our electric and water only site was well away from everyone else. Real dump of a place but for the night it was conveniently off the highway and everything worked. No local TV channels but we were fine for the night. If i had no other options and had to stop in the area again I would but only because I had to.

Plain wooded campground. Lots of seasonals but good services. Didn't use the pool but it looked usable Not very big to walk around in. Many people ate at the fish place next door. Wasn't really all that exciting to us. The families looked like they enjoyed. The office staff were not the nicest but OK. Would not go there again and really didn't like the area so even more reason not to go

Great location. We paid Passport america Price so this was great for the area. There are lots of campgrounds on the outer banks. If you want to be on the water, you can go to Nags Head area which is close to 100 dollars per night. Sands is small, quiet, the martins are great to keep away bugs. We had a great site with a tree for shade. Everything worked well. The local fish places are excellent. This is a good camp ground if you have activities planned yourself. The kids don't have a huge amount to do so if you want stuff at your CG this is not for you. Great to use as a base for surfing etc. Good TV, good cell coverage, nice friendly helpful staff and a good book exchange.

Beautifully landscaped privately owned sites. The park is very nicely taken care of. Two pools, one over looking the inter coastal water way. Lots of walking around the park in the shade. Very nice staff, helpful in every way. Easy to move around the park. Normal size lots, not huge. Some on the water but very hard to get. Right on the island and across from a lovely preserve that you can hike, bike or boat. Marina if you want to hire a mooring for your own boat. Can sup board right down from your site or rent any water sport craft without leaving the park. Good restaurant on the water. The only negative is the area is busy, right on the main entrance causeway onto the island so it can be hard to get out into traffic. Not impossible but be patient. Would stay again for sure.

This is a good alternative to the real hustle and bustle of Myrtle Beach. North Myrtle is a bit less hectic. The barefoot landing next door has so much stuff from ice cream shops to restaurants to clothing. Plenty to keep kids entertained. While the park is on the inner coastal, you can;t really see anything except the ditch of water out the back. Great pool and some social gatherings which were fun. It is a large park with lots of seasonal trailers and park models which come for long weekends etc. Plenty of room for us short term passers-by though. The price isn't cheap; I got a little Passport America discount but the area is expensive.

Date of Stay:

The rate is Passport America for Sun - Thur. For this price it is a good deal. The park is mostly sites owned by people for weekend seasonal use. There are maybe 20 for passers thru. A few on the sound water front where the boats launch and then some along a bank of grass down one road. Nice staff, good location to investigate the area of bring your boat. Crowded on the weekend but really quiet during the week. The pool is well monitored and has a great water slide that is addictive. Good facilities, cable etc. For the area it seems to be a good choice. We were on our way further up the outer banks so good stop for a few days, got up and hit the ferry over to Ocracoke - great location to get the ferry - about an 1 1/2 to drive in the morning, get on the ferry and go north. Really fun experience - no trauma with the large fifth wheel. Ferry takes longer than driving around but much less back road stress and nice to be on the water. Would stay again if in the area for sure. Great local seafood in the area, good grocery stores etc.

Yes, this is a smallish place with sites close together and not exactly great for a dog. If you want to be on the water, bring your boat and going out into the gulf then this is your place. Enjoy the mangroves and local waterfront restaurants. Lovely area to explore. Great local dive type restaurant across the street. Really nice docks if you bring your boat. You see dolphins every day, lovely birds everywhere, and we saw a manatee at our waterfront site. I would only get a waterfront site. For the extra few bucks it is well worth it and, yes, the other sites are a little painful. Great TV reception and my Verizon cell coverage was perfect. Easy access to the beach down the road across the bridge. All the local conveniences. We want to come back in their off season. The best time there - no one to bother you and the close sites don't matter because it is very slow in May, June, September and October. We will do a month rental this September or October while we are finishing up our summer travel.
