We were the only camper in the park as all the seasonals had just left. To say it was quite was an understatement. The park itself was excellent the reason for the low rating was the access road. Very steep, winding road with ruts. Had I not had a large engine vehicle, I would have had a very difficult time getting up and down the access road. My site was next to a large open grassy area leading to the playground, very spacious. Only Wi-Fi access was down at the office area so none at the site. Wonderful owners and very helpful. I would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nicely situated on a hillside overlooking the Aroostook River. This is farm country. Lots of potato farms. Also lots of Amish settlements. Canoe & kayak rental, plus a put-in service. Sites are large and grassy. The roads are dirt, and in need of repair; but, they work if you take the pot holes easy. Ours was a 30 amp FHU (#50): very nice. Would stay again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice location with nice views. Some of the grass sites will take a little extra wood under a motorhome to get level but worth it. Showers were very powerful and clean. The store was sparse on food but just before you get to the campground there are some big food stores. I wish I had stayed there another day or two so that I could have taken a tour of the historic town. The person checking us in was very nice. We camped here in a MH and the tent sites looked like some of the best I've seen during the past 3 weeks ( of a 10 week trip ) traveling from AZ to ME and Canada .I have a 35 ft MH and didn't find the roads in the park hard to manage. I would like to stay here again We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground is on a knoll that faces west. The entry road is rough gravel and uneven so, figure on going slow. There were several big motor homes and other trailers there during our stay. Our site (#44) was level, grassy and we enjoyed a fiery red sunset. Our rate was based on AAA. WI-FI is available back at the laundromat (downhill from the campsite). The signal however, was intermittent. The staff was friendly and accommodating and, we did enjoy our stay. We would come again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The person who previously reviewed this campground in 2003 described it to a tee. The only other thing I could add is that you receive 2 TV channels, and it's intermittent. After the first week, we purchased a Dish receiver from Radio Shack. The TV issue, along with the dirt road (it rained a lot while we were here) were the only real issues. There aren't many RV parks around the area to choose from. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We were disappointed with this park and did not complete our reserved time here. In all
fairness, some of this was due to personal preferences. The park appears to have been a farm at one time that has been converted to a campground. Check in
was a bit confused. The "store" does not stock any perishable food items such as bread. The sites are located on a hill behind the office and the access road is dirt with several very sharp and narrow turns,one of which is totally blind. At the top is a large open area with some pull-thrus and back-ins all of which are W&E only. There is a nice view of the surrounding farm land. The 10 full hookup sites are a little further up and are terraced. The owner described them as "pull-in/backout" sites. We observed some larger units having some difficulty getting into and out of these sites. It is very difficult to pull in, unhook your tow vehicle and then get the tow vehicle back out. The campground does own some riverfront property and they do rent kayaks and canoes but the river can not be seen from the campground. It is located across the highway and then down thru a field. We would recommend if you go here and you have a full hookup site, walk up and check it out before you pull your rig up. We would not return here. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I just returned from this state park, and I can definitely say that it is now my favorite. The sites are large and private, the bath house spotless, the rangers all friendly and helpful, and the kitchen shelter is a really nice touch. We were there during the week, and there were, maybe, six other campers in the whole park, but on Friday night it just about filled up. It is a small park, with only 30 sites, and is very quiet and peaceful. On Saturday morning some of the staff hosted a coffee social, which was fun. They rent canoes and kayaks for use on the small, but pretty lake. In the middle of the night I heard a loon calling. All in all, a very special place way up in "The County" in Maine. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Very nice place. Rangers are super helpful. Sites are nice and large. Website descriptions are right on. Beach is just a short walk. One warning - there is no dump station. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a small state park campground that caters more to tents and pop-ups than to RV's and motorhomes. That being said, there are several sites large enough to accommodate larger fifth wheels and MH's. No hook-ups of any kind. The campground entry road (1/2 mile) is steep and a bit rough, but the distance to the campground is short. The campground is heavily wooded and shady. In addition to outhouses in the campground, they have a very nice showerhouse with five rooms. Three of the rooms contain showers, sinks and toilets, and are large enough for a parent to use with children. The other two rooms (also quite large) have sinks and toilets only. The showerhouse was spotlessly clean. The park is on a beautiful lake, and rents canoes and kayaks very cheaply. There are some good hiking trails, including a climb of Quaggy Jo mountain's South and North Peaks. Maine residents pay $10 plus tax, while out-of-state pays $20 plus tax. The town of Presque Isle is only about 10 minutes away, and offers all services and shopping that one might need. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Located 5 miles south of Presque Isle with over 700 acres. Maine’s first state park. There are 30 sites in the woods with water and a washroom near the first sites. There is no electricity. The bathrooms have been redone. Very interesting – there are at least 7 private bathrooms with a shower stall and wash basin (great for families with small children). Very clean. There is a place to swim on a fresh water lake with a place to put in a boat. A quiet spot to camp with privacy in the woods and the drive on route 1 from Presque Isle or Houlton to get there is beautiful. The best part about this campground is that they have one of the nicest group of rangers working there that greet you at the entrance and offered all sorts of help and assistance. They drove around during the night and day to see if anyone needed help. There is a playground and 3 hiking trails up Quaggy Jo Mountain, which in the winter some of them are used as cross county trails. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The owners were wonderful. Our 36' 15 Ton RV got stuck in the grass because of much rainfall & the owner provided crushed rock & pulled us onto the asphalt with his JD Tractor. The bathroom was clean & it is high on a hill for cool breezes & big views. And the moose hang out right across the street down the hill! We camped here in a Motorhome.
