We enjoyed our stay at this park. It was clean and quiet. Our sites were gravel and level. All utilities were great. Each site has a picnic table and fire ring. Nice amenities, especially for such a remote area. WiFi service is the best we've had in a campground. Super clean bathrooms. Nice arcade with a pool table. Clean laundry room. We will stay here again if in the area. If you want to see a beautiful sight, get up before dawn and look at the sky. It's so dark that it looks like you can reach up and touch the stars. We camped at Balsam Woods Campground in a Motorhome.

Beautifully clean, wonderful setting in the Maine woods near Moosehead Lake. Lots of access to ATV roads. Owner was extremely pleasant, helpful and practical. Lives on site with family. Lots of ATV storage area. Will go again sometime. We camped at Balsam Woods Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice park, a little more rustic than most of the ones we go to. A lot of seasonals but, they’re very friendly and sites are well kept. Long walk to the restrooms, they do have some port-a-potties in the park (not using them). Did a moose safari with Chris Young from Young’s Guide Service, highly recommend that. We camped at Balsam Woods Campground in a Motorhome.

This attractive park has good gravel interior roads and sites that are generous, level and well-graveled. Many of the sites feel quite private with trees and undergrowth screening the sides. The utilities are good including the Wi-Fi and cable. Trails, pool, game room and other activities are available. There is no AT&T phone or data service in the area. The park is popular with families, ATV riders and seasonal visitors but still offers a quiet woodsy atmosphere. We would stay here again. We camped at Balsam Woods Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Wonderful camp ground. Sites are large and well spaced out. Even though there was heavy rain for the first day we were here, the roads and sites did not get muddy. All hook ups worked flawlessly. This camp ground is only about 30 minutes from Moosehead Lake for some great fishing. We would not hesitate to return. We camped at Balsam Woods Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Rate includes taxes and was for a non sewer site, the pump out was $10. Sewer sites are available but were reserved. They plan to make more sites with sewer. The young couple who manage the CG are very friendly and accommodating. Wi-Fi did not extend to our site. Verizon signal was good. Sites very from fairly open in the front to nearly private towards the rear in trees and they are level. We will visit again. We camped at Balsam Woods Campground in a Motorhome.

The park is really nice and the owners are friendly. The only drawback is on the pull through was next to the basketball court and the bouncing of the basket backboard was ANNOYING. We camped at Balsam Woods Campground in a Motorhome.

We loved this place so much that we booked it again for Memorial Day Weekend 2011. The young couple who own the campground work very hard to ensure that everyone is happy! Movie nights, ice cream socials, they do a great job. I would recommend this campground highly We camped at Balsam Woods Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a really nice, well kept campground. The sites vary in size, but most are quite large. The campground is wooded, but interior roads are good and navigation within the park is easy. The owners are very nice and helpful. I would rate it a 10 except for a few things. Electric is limited to 30 amps. There is no cable TV and digital reception is very limited. We could get Wi-Fi at our site but it was very slow. If cable TV and Wi-Fi are not important to you, then this is a nearly perfect place. We camped at Balsam Woods Campground in a Motorhome.

We have come here every year for about 5 years and each and every time the place was clean, the owners great help, nothing to complain about. This year new owners and we had worried will it be the same. It was not the same, it was BETTER and I did not think that could happen but the new owners are doing a great job and have activities like Ice Cream social and Pancake Breakfast. The campgrounds are very clean, the pool is pristine. The new owners can not do enough for their campers, highly recommend this campground. We camped at Balsam Woods Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Have just found that Balsam Woods has been sold and the new owners are in their first year...2008. Seem to be very accommodating over the phone but will use another Cg this year. We camped at Balsam Woods Campground in a Motorhome.

We normally do not give a "10" to any campground as we have not seen "any" that warrant the perfect or near perfect 10 rating. That is until now. This is an excellent operated park. The park facilities and grounds are clean, well maintained, landscaped, and the sites are grade "A". The interior roadways and site pads are level packed gravel. A large clean swimming pool, game room, and lounge is available. Electrical power is only 30 amp, but is a true 30 amp. No problems with hookup systems. The park is operated by a husband and wife team that are friendly, and most accommodating to one's needs. Store/office area is welcoming, and store was stocked for your needs. Other campgrounds should observe the operation, and model their own operation by those of Balsam Woods. Previous reviewers have rated the park at a "10", and it truly is a "10". We will definitely return to the Moosehead Lake Area, as there is much to see and do. We highly recommend the area and this campground. We camped at Balsam Woods Campground in a Motorhome.

This is definitely one of the nicest campgrounds in the State of Maine. We have been to others and there is no comparison. The grounds are well maintained as are the buildings. The bathrooms are kept clean. The camp store is well stocked and the owners are always helpful to their campers.The swimming pool is immaculate and heated. There are three cabins to rent at $50 plus tax and these sleep four persons. They are equipped with refrigerator, hot plate, table, fans and heat. You bring pots, pans, silverware, bedding and towels. Site prices vary. Tent sites are lowest and water, sewer, and electric are a little higher. Cash or checks only. They do not accept credit cards or ATM cards. We camped at Balsam Woods Campground in a Travel Trailer.
