We have come to this campground for three years with a group of friends. In general, it's a nice campground. Specifically, the owners could do a better job at their customer relations. Our first year, our 9 year old son was told he was riding his bike faster than 5 mph and the owner told us he wasn't allowed to ride it until he gave my son permission to. We followed his rule but he never came around again so our son didn't get to ride his bike. The second year one of our friends went to hook up his sewer and noticed that the sewer pipe was backed up. He had the owner come over to look at it and he was accused of putting something down the drain that he wasn't supposed to. Even though he hadn't even hooked up yet! This year, which is the group's final year at this campground, four of our sites were moved. Granted, their website says that sites can be changed however, one of our friends paid for a full hook up site, was moved to a site where they had to share water and electricity with a neighbor and were then questioned when they used the dump station even though they had paid for a full hook up site and received only a SLIGHT discount for being moved to a lesser site. Guess what Hemlock Grove? You have to allow people to dump if you move them off of a full hook up site. It's the right thing to do! I'm glad our group organizer has decided not to go to this campground again. We love our friends dearly so we've put up with the owners but it gets worse and worse every year. We camped at Hemlock Grove Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Hemlock Grove Campground was recommended to us by another campground in the area. Our site was wonderful. It was spacious both by the width and length. Our big rig had plenty of room and we had plenty of space for our tow vehicle. We loved having the trees to shade our site. The campground owners were wonderful and we had good conversation with them. The touristy part of Kennebunkport was overwhelming and we were always happy to get back to the campground where it was peaceful and quiet. We camped at Hemlock Grove Campground in a Motorhome.

We travelled to the Bush Compound; spent time walking the downtown and went to Nubble Light. We also ate supper at several lobster houses. Our favorite was Nunan's Lobster Hut where service is excellent and prices are reasonable. They open at 5:00 pm so get in line early!!! Free parking.

Most sites in woods with nice shade. Looks like some of the sites are in need of tree trimming. If you're not into sand and gravel, maybe best to look elsewhere. Friendly staff and easy check in. Probably would be better if they took you to your assigned site and gave pointers as to how to back in. The store carries about everything you forgot to bring. Probably would stay again if in the area. We camped at Hemlock Grove Campground in a Motorhome.

The owners are very accommodating, friendly, and professional. They will go out of their way to make sure everything is working properly. We left behind an item and it was sent on to us without any hesitation at their expense, (we did reimburse them)also were sensitive to our needs in expediting a document that needed to be faxed. The park is centrally located with easy access to all main attractions. This was our 2nd stay & will stay again. Thank you for making our stay a pleasant one.

This was our first time out this year and first time camping here. We are very happy we camped at Hemlock Grove. This is a beautiful campground. Many times when you camp on an opening weekend the place is not really ready but Hemloch Grove looked like it was in mid season form. The grounds were clean an neat and looked great. The sites are large and very level. All connects were very good and there were plenty of cable channels. The WiFi worked great for us. As our kickoff weekend we really just had plans to sit and relax if everything was set to go and since we had no repairs to make we did just that. I loved their wood as it varied in size and burned real nice. I cannot say enough about this campground or the owners/staff that we dealt with. We will return for sure. We camped at Hemlock Grove Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Nice, medium size campground. Roads are good and wide. Easy to maneuver. Easy in and out off the main road. Many trees around most sites. For big rigs there is an open area that can hold about 6 rigs. Even with the open area we could not get our satellite to connect. Office folks were very nice and available. We camped at Hemlock Grove Campground in a Motorhome.

Our prior stay was over 5 yrs ago. But then it was excellent and we were treated as well or better this time. A beautiful, gated, campground with loads of colorful landscaping around the park all kept up and neat. Smooth packed gravel roads and spacious sites. Most sites are under trees and well shaded. Excellent cable TV. Full variety of channels. So convenient to Kennebunkport/Kennebunk, Cabellas, Scarborough and I-95. They had records of our previous stay and by request we got the same site again. Walking around there isn't a "bad" site anywhere. I can't say enough about the owners/operators. Friendly and welcoming. Happy to help in any way. After leaving with something extended, here comes the owner chasing us down in his truck. Thankfully we caught it in time. That's going the extra mile for sure! There are other choices in the area. And we've used them in the past. None compare to the total experience at Hemlock Grove. We camped at Hemlock Grove Campground in a Motorhome.

Convenient to Kennebunkport, Kennebunk, and I-95. Get some Maine Wild Blueberry Ice Cream at Hannafords. Treat yourself to a Lobster Roll at the red food truck. Have a magnificent meal at Mabel's on Ocean Dr. Drive out to Walker's Point (Bush Compound). Visit to St Anne's past Walker's Point. It is a magnificent stone chapel and a wonderful outdoor chapel. Guys: Visit Main Street Barber Shop in Kennebunk. Otherwise enjoy a real New England treasure.

The folks in the office were a delight, and offered good suggestions for where to eat, what to see and do. The park is heavily wooded, so we couldn't use our satellite TV, but the cable there is good. Our site was a back-in that was downhill from the road, but access was easy.

Great park. Seems they have a site to suit any size rig. Most in the trees. Friendly staff, very clean , quiet, not alot of grass, no dog park . Close to lots of action in Kennebunkport and other local attractions. Many eating establishments close. This location is easy to find. We camped at Hemlock Grove Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice shaded park and nice folks. We usually try to get pull-thru sites but these are all back-ins. They were easy to get into and plenty long enough for the tow. The office staff was most helpful in recommending things to see and do in the Kennebunkport area. We camped at Hemlock Grove Campground in a Motorhome.

We were so lucky to get a site here. The owners are so nice and really worked to fit us in as it's their busiest time. Neatly kept park that picks up the trash at your site. Great wifi and cable as there are lots of trees and I doubt you could get satellite. Conveniently located so its a short drive to Kennebunkport and other local highlights. They do have a nice playground set up for kids in front of the office (which also includes a small camp store with the usual necessities). Sites are back in, but plenty of room for our 40' motorhome. Easy access from I-95. I highly recommend. We camped at Hemlock Grove Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed here two months (July and August 2016) in a 42' motorhome. We have been spending 3 months a year for seven years going around the country. This is one of the best parks we have ever stayed in. It is clean, very well run, but really special for the setting, the width of the sites (enormous), the privacy of many of the sites (trees on both sides), the friendliness of the people, and a great location. It is quiet and peaceful. We camped at Hemlock Grove Campground in a Motorhome.

This park is located with easy access to Kennebunk, Kennebunkport, the Wells Amtrak train to Boston. The best however, is the lobster factory literally across the street with its retail window selling some of the freshest fish I have ever had. This company also owns the lobster truck a mile or so down the road toward Kennebunk, which has the best lobster rolls we have ever had.

We've stayed at Hemlock Grove for more than 10 years and are now seasonal. It's very clean, very accommodating and the owners are two of the nicest campground owners you will ever meet. The park is well maintained and they cater to your needs. It's a quiet and relaxing place to spend our summer. We would highly recommend Hemlock Grove to anyone. They're close to the beaches, parks and other amenities for those with families. You'll love it! We camped at Hemlock Grove Campground in a Motorhome.
