When you enter this park the parking area to register is on the side of a steep hill. Big rigs should pull up to the left side of the flag poles and park there to avoid the steep tight turns in front of the office. The road around the campground is gravel, well maintained, but can be tight in areas if you’re a 40ft class A with toad. A lot of the park is filled with long term and seasonal quests, many with permanent porches, sheds and satellite dishes nailed to trees. This makes the place look more like a travel trailer park than a campground. There are only 6 shaded 30/50amp shared pedestal full-hookup pull thru sites for large rigs, everything else is back-in. If you want some shade and are willing to maneuver into a site, you might fit into one on the hill but it is very treed so getting a satellite view will be a problem. Some of the power pedestals may be out of reach for your power cord up there, if so, ask the office for an extension if you don’t have one. The staff is very helpful and will loan you a 30 amp cord to use. If you don’t need sewer and want an easy back-in with open skies stay in Violette’s field, a water and electric only level grass yard. You will have plenty of room to maneuver a big rig into place without any obstacles. The bathroom, showers and laundry are all clean and well maintained. Sprint has no service in the area. The free park WI-FI worked fine near the office, but got slower the further away you were. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Good location, nice and clean facilities, family friendly, many activities, very nice office staff. However…..very, very compact and we struggled with our 38’ fifth wheel – would not recommend any towable rigs over 34’ in season when the park is crowded, as it’s rather tight to maneuver. Pull-thru sites share a pedestal, so you may not get the one 50-amp service if you’re not the first one there. No TV reception and no cable, but Verizon 4G works surprisingly well. Some may find the numerous rabbit adorable, but they are everywhere, as is their waste. Maybe it’s the weekend we’re here, but the loudest campground ever – no, not the road noise, but very loud, screaming children and their parents. If you come on a weekend, and this is an issue for you, it’s worth asking for a quiet (if there is one) area. Oh, quiet hours do not start until 11pm, a bit late in our opinion. It is strictly enforced and it’s quiet at 11:01pm, but quite loud until that moment. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
If it's a hopping, jumping campground that would fill your hearts' desire, Mt. Katahdin is the place to build your late night fire. Very family friendly, always things to do. Managed very nicely, seasonals, and yes, they're nice too. You have a pool and Wi-Fi. If you want a/c you'll pay. There is a playground for the kiddies, and they're buzzing about all day. Those who stay the season can add their own decor. Although it's always busy, a well stocked camping store. If you are into "peace & quiet"this is not for you, There is a primitive tenting area, but it's pretty "happening", too. It's very family friendly and if your focus is just that, I believe it rates an "8". So go check out "Mt. Kat". We camped here in a Motorhome.
Some seasonal sites, but most are well kept and have friendly folks. Bunnies all around add to the entertainment. Many weekly activities and usually nightly hay rides for those young at heart. Some noise from the big log trucks on the highway. Close to Mt. Katahdin and Baxter State Park. Gravel roads and some grassy sites, which are quite level. The local TV stations did not come in for us. Nice walking conditions around the campground. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Not all sites are good for large (40 ft) RVs, but they have several. Most sites have 30 amp, a few have 50. Good free Wi-Fi, wonderful staff. The owner takes great pride in helping his customers. Had a minor problem with electric and the owner responded quickly and had it fixed. Rate reflects the weekly rate. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice family CG. Lots of happy kids. Pull through sites power post shared with adjacent site, one gets 30a the other 50a. Rooftop dish didn't get signal, Wi-Fi slow & Sprint cell phone/Internet hotspot slow & on roaming. Would be good for longer stays if CG had TV & good Wi-Fi. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Just a quick stopover here on the way south for the winter. We picked this site because of its location along our route and the fact that it is "open all year." We received a courteous reply to our email inquiry, registered online, and were greeted by a very friendly woman on our arrival! There is about six inches of snow covering everything, but the park looks clean and well-maintained...bathrooms and showers very clean. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We used this park for a quick stop but found it to be nice. Restroom and shower were clean owners were very nice. Had a pull through ready for us so we had a very easy in and out. As with most parks there were many seasonal people but we found ti overall nice. Would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Campground has a wonderful atmosphere and our fellow campers were really friendly. The kids loved the little rabbits running around. The playground could use an update, especially for smaller children but overall we enjoyed our stay. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This was a fantastic park. A lot of seasonal campers and very friendly. Management was fair but in control. The park although near full was quiet and calm. The facilities were kept exceptionally clean. My family had a perfect 3 days here. Would have given a 10 if there was waterfront on the property. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Do not bring a big rig here: we did and we are sorry. Unfortunately there isn't a CG in the area that's suited for more than a 30' trailer. Interior roads are not good and definitely not wide enough for a 40' MH to turn. The pull through site we had had side by side hook-ups, so we shared a small common area. Luckily the trailers next to us did not have slides or we would have touched. People were friendly, but most were seasonal and had been coming for 20 or more years. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground may be nice and have a lot of amenities, but it is not big-rig friendly. We had trouble navigating the roads and getting backed in a very short site. On the plus side, they do refill LP gas containers by metering rather than charging a flat rate. Lots of seasonal campers with permanent set ups. Suitable for an overnight stop. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This campground has great potential but it is spoiled by mediocre management. The campground has a lovely park setting and a nice swimming pool. The game room is excellent and is inviting. The store is well stocked. On the downside it took almost an hour to get a site because the poor lady on registration had difficulty managing the campsites and the money. Making change was a stretch for her. We were sent to four campsites before we found one which met our requirement of a level site (our jacks were broken) and 50 amps. The first site had 50 amps but the neighbor used it first so we couldn't have it. The second two sites were not level and only had 30 amps. At the time there was only one other customer to deal with. We were asked why we needed 50 amps. There was an additional charge of $3 per day to run the AC. Seasonal campers have 25 x 25 pink carpets in front of their rigs, sofas, large BBQs, armchairs, twinkly lights and fences. You feel as though you are intruding when you arrive. Noisy at night. We would not camp here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very close spots , slides where nearly touching but great area. Great bar just down the road called Maggies which is the only reason we would go again. If you go to the bar tell Herman that the two mad English people recommended it. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Our initial impression that it was very clean, which it was, but there is very little grass in the campground so there is a lot of gravel and sand for roads and paths, resulting in a lot of dirt in the camper. Sites are wide, there was an odor of sewer in the air as if someone had a spill. Laundry closed early at 9 pm especially if you were in Baxter State Park all day. A lot of seasonals which made for a noisy climate with a lot of the sites having a lot of tacky ornaments and semi-permanent exterior 'fridges and bar-b-q's, making the place kind of tacky looking. A very small amount of necessary groceries available, such as milk, etc. The only close campground to the mountain that had water, electric and sewer. It is apparent that the seasonals are given preference and are allowed to break rules, pity as this place could be a lot more. All sites tend to look in on each other making it not very private considering that you are in the North Woods of Maine. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is not the closest campground to the mountain with water, sewer and electric. This campground was noisy with crowded sites too close together. Too much loudness and drinking late into the night. We camped here in a Tent.
This campground, at least for a one-night stay, filled all our expectations. Easily reached in a fairly rural area, it is a lovely wooded property. It's remarkably quiet and exudes tranquility. Your kids will love the rabbits and chipmunks that run free on the grounds. Top-notch pool, immaculate restrooms, well-stocked store, excellent wifi and particularly cordial staff. Only downside: no TV cable, only one OTA station and no view of a satellite; but, unless you're a news junkie like we are, you won't care. Beyond that, we heartily recommend it and will return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We camped here with 2 kids ages 6 & 9. They can't wait to go back! The staff was very friendly and helpful. Lots of rabbits roaming free that loved to be fed. The campground was busy, but didn't feel crowded. This is a family campground and they go out of their way to try to make all their campers happy. Quiet hours are strictly enforced so we all slept great. We are planning on returning again soon. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

This is the worse campground we have ever stayed in. The sites were so close together that our neighbor's campfire ring was 6 feet from the center of our trailer. The smoke billowed in so badly we had to leave until their fire was over. We were there on July 4th, and the campground was teeming with unsupervised children. It was loud and horrible. Our children (ages 7 and 11) especially hated it. The pool was mobbed with children jumping in right next to others (most seemingly unsupervised.) My kids wouldn't even step in the pool, it was so crazy and out of control. The service was also horrible. We made reservations expecting pump out service because they had no sewers left. The pump out service rules are ludicrous: they won't pump your tanks the day you get there or the day you leave; they won't pump your tanks more than every OTHER day; they will not begin pumping until after 3 p.m. Our tanks were so full we had to put tape on the sinks to remind the kids not to use them, and we had to wait until 6 p.m. to get them pumped! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

There are many seasonal campers here, but there is also a nice, grassy section of long, level pull-throughs for overnighters, as well as a separate section for tenters. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
If you're looking for a quiet, relaxing night this is the place to come to. We stayed 2 nights in October at this really lovely, wooded campground right on the East Branch of the Penobscot River. Being at the end of the season there were very few people here but even in season the sites looked private enough to make this a nice place. Jeff the owner is very friendly and happy to accommodate and suggest places to see. We had "visits" from racoons, wild turkeys, and owls and because there aren't street lights everywhere like some campgrounds the stars are worth the trip alone. We would happily stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very enjoyable setting, friendly/ helpful owner, and river access with free canoes and kayaks. Decent Wi-Fi and very quiet. If you are looking for a relaxing soothing place to kick back and swim, fish, boat, or take in the local scenery you have found it. Don’t get me wrong this place is rustic and if you’re looking for fancy don’t come. We happened on this site by accident. A campground down the road was full. So we gave this a bit out of the way spot a chance and are glad we did. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here for a month while our son was finishing the AT at Baxter State Park. The staff was very friendly and accommodating, making our stay very pleasant. It was very quiet and relaxing. We were backed right up to the river. Some sites on the river don't have sewer but the staff will pump you for a small fee. We hope to visit again! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
