Park has beautiful views of Mt. Katahdin and Penobscot river. We visited in the fall so the foliage was amazing. Less than 20 miles from Millinocket over a bumpy road. Go slow and you will have no problems. Moose, bald eagles, deer are plentiful to view. No services so dry camping is a must. Our rating would have been higher had there been T-paper in the bathrooms. We asked attendants over four days for TP, and only got it on the fourth day. Trash had not been emptied for many many days / weeks. Owners were away to a wedding, so this probably would have been different had they been around. Heavy logging trucks start moving around 3 a.m. during the week, so the wonderful silence for good sleeping is gone. Again, this is a beautiful campground setting, but bring your own TP and a broom for the bath rooms. We will go back as long as the owners are present. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very rustic setting for dry camping with spectacular views of Kathadin and the Penobscot. We saw bald eagles, deer and a watched a moose swim across the river. Boating and fly fishing from our site. Super clean bathroom/hot showers, dump station available, well stocked store, gasoline. It is an 18.5 mile very bumpy ride down the Golden road to access. There is no reliable cell phone coverage. It might not be easy for >30 ft rig to navigate turns. Our 27 ft class C had no trouble though. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great campground just south (10 miles) of Baxter State Park; ideal to stay here and hike the park. Owners purchased the campground in 2012 and are making steady improvements to an already good place - nice pool, new playground, outdoor dishes sinks, bathroom improvements. They were very flexible and helpful, going out of their way to ensure we had what you needed. Terrain in the area is rocky, so you'll encounter some bumps on the gravel loop roads, but we went slow and were just fine. Lots of trees surrounding the sites. Great fire rings with rock surround - very nice. Dry firewood available. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is two years old. Owner is very nice. It is eighteen miles from Baxter State Park and one mile from Millinocket. Pool, playground, volleyball court, horseshoe pits and a small store with snacks, ice and firewood. On-site canoe outfitter, rafting trips, scenic flights can be booked. We camped here in a Motorhome.
