One of the best maintained parks that we have stayed in. Shady sites, excellent wi-fi, cable good. Small lakes and fountains around and waterfront to creek. Two dog runs, both with hot bath available. Bathrooms are spotless. Really good facilities, and pools that are meticulously looked after. Rate quoted is the Spring "Special" of $199 per week. Location is quiet and close to shopping and restaurants. Short drive to Tampa or beaches.

Would agree with the earlier comment about not being "big-rig" friendly and no pull-thru's. Ours is 35ft and we had to drop the tow-dolly and reverse in, but it was worth it. Great view over the lake, with beach 50 yards away and little restaurant to the side. Wifi was free and cable excellent. Lebanon only 4 miles away. Friendly place and good value at this time of year and you can't say that too often!

Our only criticism of this park would be the management. We made a reservation for Sat/Sun but later learned that we would only have time for one night and called a few days before to advise them. No pleasant discussion at all. It was a case of "well we'll charge you for two nights anyway". Accepted that, but the attitude was rude. Arrived at 1pm on the Saturday and was charged an extra $5 for being 2 hours before check-in time. Been on the road for a year now and this has never happened. Especially when we've paid for two nights and only staying for one. Tried the wifi that was advertised and it did not work. Back to the office and they gave me the tel. no. of the wifi co. - Linkspot. They told me the park is off the air. Back to the office and they called Linkspot, but it was obvious that the system had been "down" for some time as they told Linkspot that they were unhappy with repeated complaints from campers. The park is very pleasant with lakes and excellent pull-thru sites. Shame about the penny-pinching attitude and we would not be back.

Cannot imagine how anyone thinks the restrooms are clean. They are 50 year old huts built with porous materials and used by people with filthy habits. Dividing walls within are only 4ft high, so no privacy. Site has rough roads and is a virtual dustbowl with no grass. OK, great for kids, with lots to do. But for the average RV'er it's certainly not our choice, especially at the price. The advertisement and list in boasts "internet friendly", but they have no access at all. If your visit is to please the kids - go for it. Anything else - pass it by.

No complaints at all, (although it is pricey but you get what you pay for), especially in the middle of summer. Very tidy park with all the amenities. Wifi and cable great and included in site fees. Very friendly and helpful staff. Sealed roads and concrete pads. Would disagree with earlier comment about Salisbury Beach. It would need a lot of work before raising its status to "Dump" level. Would stay here again, handy for Boston and Salem.

This review is to make it clear that there are 2 KOA Bar Harbors. The main park is this one, on the water and it looks wonderful. Great location. The other (Woodlands)is 2 miles down the road and deep in the woods and does not compare in anyway. It does have wifi and cable, but there any benefit ends. It is definitely the poor relation although the rates are still sky high. Be really sure that you want to go to KOA Woodlands - we never would again!

This is the "other" campground of KOA that is not on the water, but 2 miles down the road deep in the woods. Roads are dirt tracks and sites are rough. 60% of sites are under a tree canopy that makes them very dark and a breeding ground for bugs.The only plus is that this park has wifi and cable, whereas the waterfront park does not and we needed the wifi.Big mistake, and one you should not make.Restrooms are in a 50 year old hut. At $60 for a site with sewer it is way over priced. It is a measure of the park manager's confidence when she said "you'd better have a look at the site before we confirm things". The place is an afterthought and way over priced. We would not return!

Been on the road for 10 months now and this is one of the best we have stayed at. Well looked after by very friendly and helpful staff. Great value (cheap really). Cable free and wifi only $1 per day and works great at site. Roads good and sites level. Well patronized restaurant at front which we will try tonight. Only complaint anyone could have is that there is not a pool but that is not a concern on our account. Highly recommended and would return without hesitation.

Great park with extra helpful staff that have a friendly attitude. We reported that the cable was not up to scratch and they bought over a TV to test it (which showed the problem was on our side) then lent us a cable to fix it). There was a theme weekend scheduled for when we were here and they went the extra mile to make sure that it was successful. Not a traditional RV Park layout which adds a bit of interest. Lots of space. Pool and amenities all in good order. Well stocked shop. Only minus is the entry road, which is dirt and lumpy. Would definitely stay again. Wifi excellent and free.

Date of Stay:

Not the usual RV Park. Place is absolutely huge and 85% would be seasonal/permanent. A kind of holiday camp for Quebecer's. Has it's own supermarket and restaurant. Central lake and lots of facilities for kids. Not far from town, which is an attractive place with lots of restaurants and a very French atmosphere. English is spoken in the office, but very limited elsewhere (that's if you can find anyone who wants to talk to an outsider!). Good little par 3 golf course almost next door - only $7. TV reception marginal with 3 English language stations. Pay for WiFi @ $5 per day! Bathrooms old and questionable.

Nice park with friendly and helpful owners. Located about 20 miles east of Ottawa in a mainly rural area. Big disappointment is the standard of the restrooms. They are way beyond their use-by date and built of materials that cannot be cleaned properly, even if the effort was made. Otherwise, amenities are good. Wifi and cable is free and operates well. Good access and internal roads with wide sites and fire rings etc. Would camp here again as no others in the area offer the same amenities, but would not go near the bathrooms until things have changed!

Could have rated this park much higher except for the rest rooms. The park building are about 50 years old and the rest rooms are the same with no updating. Almost acceptable if they were clean, but they were not. External door would not close, so also full of mosquitos which swarm the area. Shame because the park is well laid out and on the lake front with boat hire and small marina. Volleyball court had a ball, but no net. Cable and wifi both excellent. Small shop with basics, but closes early and open during the day intermittently. Access road to the park is dirt and rutted which shook up the contents of the motorhome on the way in. Only wish they would clean the restrooms and at least give them a coat of paint. Would probably stop here again if I could not find another local park with wifi and cable.

Date of Stay:

Spragge only has 1 restaurant (cafe) and no shops at all. Nearest are 17 miles so make sure you pick up anything you need before you get here. Tidy camp and good value. Wifi great. TV reception almost non existent - 1 channel with antennae booster. Friendly staff and all amenities spotless. Good overnight stop.

Date of Stay:

Roads and sites just dust and dirt which does not justify a nightly rate of $45. Wifi and cable are good. Handy to town and the ferries for Mackinac Island being about 3 miles away. Not an attractive park and we would be looking elsewhere if we returned to the area. Met friends here who were staying at Mill Creek RV in Mackinac City, on the waterfront and paying $31 for water & sewer hookup.

Date of Stay:

Park now has wifi (free). Yes cable is good and location OK. Shame about the roads which are red dust that covers everything after a day or two. Fairly new park that has been created on the cheap but works ok and location near town is good. Walk to restaurants and few shops, including supermarket.
