We stayed here in a motorhome. Roads are good and our site had full hook ups. Park is quiet except for the occasional airplane from Bangor airport. Wifi was slow as in most parks we visit. Park was clean and well maintained. We camped at Paul Bunyan Campground in a Motorhome.

Acadia NP is about 1 hour away and the Transportation Museum is a good take. If you want pizza you should try Tesoro's. Best NY style pizza we've had in a long time. I also recommend Cornerstone Barber Shop if you need a haircut. Excellent men's haircut.

The facilities for laundry and restrooms were not acceptable at all. The "activity room" looked more like a storage room with a sofa, tv, pool table and video games scattered about. But the mop and mop bucket along with other cleaning tools and equipment, were just sitting around in there as well. The roads need some work, but were not terrible. The sites themselves are close together and grass and/or mud only. This park accepts Vouchers from the City of Bangor for the homeless. So you have tenters camping anywhere from 25 yards and sometimes closer next to expensive rigs. There was no enforcement of their own rules, i.e. pet leashes, speed limit, noise, etc. The grass at the entry and in the middle of the park is mowed often and well kept, but maintenance around the rigs, was spotty. Internet was iffy, sometime on, sometime off and when on, extremely slow. We camped at Paul Bunyan Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Bar Harbor is about an hours drive, as is Acadia National Park. While Bar Harbor is a touristy town, it is quaint and we enjoyed walking around. Acadia National Park is the highlight of the area, in my opinion. Moose Lake is a day trip well worth taking.

This is the second year we've stayed here on our way to and from New Brunswick. The management here is very friendly and the all the facilities are very well kept. I see some very trivial complaints in the reviews and wonder why the negative comments. It's supposed to be a campground not the Hilton. We camped at Paul Bunyan Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Well, where do I start. We have stayed at the campground over the past few years, giving positive reviews. I don't know what happened this year (maybe a new owner?) but it has gone DOWN HILL. Partying until 3-4am, people DRUNK in the campground walking around and disturbing others, the owner complaining about people yet choosing to do nothing about it. The owners were extremely unprofessional and rude. We will never stay here again, nor will we recommend this pitiful campground to anyone again. We are so disappointed in the ignorance of the owners (maybe new ones). We have also noticed that many of the people who use to frequent this campground have left and gone with the other campground up the road in Bangor. We camped at Paul Bunyan Campground in a Tent Trailer.

Rate is with Good Sam discount. I would not describe this park as Big Rig Friendly as our "pull-thru" site required disconnecting the toad before making sharp turns on a grassy "road", dodging a surface rock, before entering our site. Even with his CDL experience, my driver found it necessary to back-up before pulling into this narrow site. This park was okay, but the necessary unhooking diminished its close to the interstate advantage. We camped at Paul Bunyan Campground in a Motorhome.

Another great year at Paul Bunyan CG. The Wi-Fi worked great, and available throughout the campground. The staff are wonderful. The campground is kept very clean. My kids love the pool and all the friendly Canadians that also equally love this campground. I HIGHLY recommend this campground - and believe me I rarely give such a glowing recommendation. We always will be returning next year. We camped at Paul Bunyan Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Wi-Fi was available in the campground, but we were down in a hole from the office and we could not pick it up. Sites were on grass with trees/bushes between. Fire rings were around and people were using them and it was a little smoky. Why do people have to have fires especially when no one is around them? For an overnight stop this was OK, but not that great. Good thing it was not raining. The roads were dirt and looked like they could get muddy quick. We camped at Paul Bunyan Campground in a Motorhome.

This campground is conveniently located off I-95 on Union Street. There are 52 shaded and sunny sites with some pull through’s 30 & 50 amp service, water, electric, sewer, dump station, restroom, showers, children s play area, rec hall, large pool, camp store, lending library. Good for touring the Maine “Down East” areas and Bangor itself. Campfires are allowed. This campground is convenient to everything in Bangor – it is a small campground with some seasonal sites. Nice playground and pool for children and easy and friendly check-in. We passed Stephen King’s house with his black gates and birds on top – interesting. Went to the new super Walmart in Bangor for food shopping and also went downtown Bangor to the park where the huge Paul Bunyan Statue is. We have seen this statue over the years and both of us believe that they must have painted it again within the past year. We camped at Paul Bunyan Campground in a Motorhome.

We were very happy with this campground. The pool was great, the owners were great, the other campers were nice. The campground was quiet - yet it was a family campground that we and our three children LOVED. The only drawback is the air planes that fly over, the last one flew over around 9:30pm or so and then you do not hear any til the morning - around 6:30am. The lots were spacious, and fire rings at each site. The hayride is a nice event for the younger kids. We will definitely stay here again and again.

Beware of this campground. Sites are not level and as another reviewer wrote they are grass and very muddy when it rains. When we pulled out of our site, my rig looked like I had been off road in it! We were given the wrong direction to pull into our pull thru site. The campground is old and in need of repair. A couple from Florida had to back their rig to a point where they could turn around and leave as the site they reserved had somebody else in it. NOT a campground for Big Rigs. Our motorhome is 37' and I would not want to be any longer and still get around in it. And there is NO WI-FI not to mention the low flying Jets landing at the airport just make this campground a DO NOT STAY HERE. We camped at Paul Bunyan Campground in a Motorhome.

We chose this campground because of listed Wi-Fi availability. As is so often the case it was not working. Otherwise this is a decent campground with large open spaces. Sites are big enough with enough space between. Nearby airport gets quiet early enough in the evening. We camped at Paul Bunyan Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We were glad this campground remained open in late October as we headed south out of Canada. Sites are grassy and got really muddy in the rain, but the 30-amp utility worked fine (50 amp costs extra to unlock), and we were able to get Dish satellite from the open site that we selected away from the trees. The wifi did not work at all, even next to the office. The property is pleasant enough, with a big grassy field that they have a music festival on during Labor Day, a pond, and lots of trees. It’s close to the airport so when the wind is blowing in a certain direction the airport noise got fairly loud. It’s also convenient to Bangor attractions and shopping. Best of all they accepted our Passport America for two nights, which brought the cost way down. Several old rigs scattered around diminished the atmosphere, but not badly. I would definitely stay here again at the Passport America rate. We camped at Paul Bunyan Campground in a Motorhome.

The campground is somewhat old, but we were treated well each visit and the price is reasonable. Amenities were about average, the pool was clean but cool (outdoor pool) Wi-fi didn't work on our site. The kids loved the wagon ride. There is some aircraft noise as the campground is near the airport. It is convenient located for shopping in Bangor or a stopover on a trip south. We'll be back. We camped at Paul Bunyan Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This place is a fine home base if you need to get business done in Bangor, or use it to see Acadia when the park is booked. Other than weak water pressure, we saw no problem whatsoever with this park. Yes, the pull through sites are somewhat tight, but not as bad as some KOAs we've been to. Sites are wooded, but we were still able to get a satellite signal. Grounds are clean, laundry facilities work great, staff is super friendly, and the scenery is really pretty. Sure it's not the beach Maine scenery, but it's a lovely park-like setting. We liked it a lot. We camped at Paul Bunyan Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
