Very nice and well kept campground. People were very nice during stay. Not a lot to do, but very quiet. We camped at Beaver Dam Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is a real nice park. It was extremely quiet the weekend we were there which is just what the doctor ordered. Peaceful and restfull was great. The owners were very friendly and made us feel welcome. Easy to walk around with plenty to do in the off season. Not far to the coast and Wells or York Beach. This was our second time here and my wife was wondering why we do not go here more often so I guess we will be back. It was an easy ride coming from exit 3 of the Maine Turnpike. We camped at Beaver Dam Campground in a Travel Trailer.

My rating as a "rustic" camping experience is a 4 (poor); my rating as a "family" camping experience is an 8. (good) Nice family campground with lots to do for the kids. This seems to be a local spot for it's day-use activities. They have a swimming beach on a small pond, rental boats/kayaks/canoes, a small putt-putt course, basketball goals, a game room for the kids, etc. The sites are very close, but level and shaded for the most part. About 2/3 are long term campers. CG is well maintained and clean, and the friendly owners put a lot of effort into the CG. The bathrooms were older but clean. Showers are coin operated. Interior roads are gravel but wide enough. Good base to do stuff in the area or if you are just passing through (which was my case), but it wouldn't be a destination for me since I prefer the rustic camping experience. We were in site 5, which was plenty long enough for our fifth wheel and truck. We had 50 amp power, but not all sites do. Verizon coverage was 2/5, lots of TV stations from surrounding towns. We camped at Beaver Dam Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Fisherman's Catch a few miles away has excellent seafood. Whole lobster, lobster rolls. In my opinion, the best value they have is the Fisherman's Catch Platter for two for $35 - haddock, clams, shrimp and oysters.

Park is beautiful. The owners work nonstop. Office help was polite and helpful. They have a dog park that is in fair condition and gets used regularly. The majority of the sites that back up to the pond do not have sewer. But with that said they have a fantastic view. There activities are based on children and are run on the weekends. Close proximity to all of Maine's popular southern beach areas. You get one hour of free Wi-Fi each day but you can buy a daily/weekly service for a fair price. No cable TV offered. That I would have liked for an extended stay. Will return. We camped at Beaver Dam Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We really enjoyed the pool. Beware - ice, ice cold. For us, that was okay. Hot humid day, and low chlorine level made for a nice dip and good conversation. Putt-putt golf was fun, but pricey. We had a gorgeous lake site. With the good comes caution on tree roots. The fire pit was the deepest I've seen and rocks just stacked made for complicated marshmallow roasting. But I liked the artistry of it. The stock info on Beaver Dam said 60 sites, but I counted 73. Am noting this because restroom facilities are way under-designed. Three toilets and three showers. Coin showers were okay once you learned how to use them, but chances of an ice cold shower are high. Threading seems reversed for the knobs. I notice port-a-potties by the big rig section. Beaver Dam should consider putting in two of the new style solar latrines. Technically, staff cleans twice a day, but we found owners in often just sweeping and keeping things to a minimum clean. The floors take a beating. But overall, okay. Just adds to stress of the stay. Clearly, the owners work hard. I overheard a child zooming on a bike say to another," I want to live here all the time, don't you?" Not "I wish" but "I want". To be real...activities are limited during the week, and additional costs will add up. The lake looks great. Missed out on renting a boat due to structure of our trip. Neighbor boys appeared to fully enjoy fishing from shore and boats they launched. The dog park is a nice gesture, but it was empty and our dog un-interested. I'm a little dismayed at having to reserve more time at the site than neighbors who popped in and out. We also had a better experience with late check-in than others have reported. We lost 4 hours in severe traffic backup, and staff was good about allowing us entry before 9 PM. For proximity to Dover, NH, the coast and overall, Beaver Dam is a worthy choice. (I added the non-refundable reservation fee into the nightly rate) We camped at Beaver Dam Campground in a Tent Trailer.

This is a nice little park and everyone was friendly. Site was plenty big for what we needed and all hookups were good; cable would have been nice. Planned activities as well as other things to do. Pool looked nice and people were using the beach. Owners were very involved in everything and you saw them throughout the day. Offered shelter to anyone who needed it due to storm coming up the coast. From here we found it easy to get to both York Beach and Old Orchard Beach. Site was level so side to side we were set when we pulled in which made set up a breeze. We camped at Beaver Dam Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Very relaxing and peaceful place to camp. The staff were exceptionally friendly. There are so many things to do nearby in this tourism-friendly southern Maine area that I didn't take in much that the park offered, but they certainly offer a lot (waterfront walking, boat rentals, mini-golf, pool, & scheduled activities). I would definitely return, and if I lived nearby I'd certainly consider this park for my regular get-away spot. We camped at Beaver Dam Campground in a Motorhome.

Beaver Dam was a very nice place. Clean and modern. The owners were on site and very helpful. They kept the campground very pretty with flowers and shrubs. The sites were well manicured. A nice feature was trash barrels on your site, and there was trash pick up. The store was a bit over priced, but that is to be expected. Great fishing.

We rented for 3 months. Had a waterfront lot and great access to the pond. Easily kayaked, lots of wildlife and flora. Clean as a whistle, not a cigarette butt or candy wrapper on the ground. Owners are hands on and run a tight ship. Services were reliable, neighbors courteous (the park is ~1/3 seasonals but no one is allowed to keep their rig on the campground so there are no unsightly structures. Is good for tenting and RVing and no one is more than 200 ft from the pond. Although it is small, it was peaceful for adults and fun for kids. There is a pool (also immaculate) and the beach. If you tire of fresh water, the ocean is 20 minutes away. Great summer stock theater can be had across the street. I can't say enough good about this place. (The price marked is based on our seasonal rate broken down by day.) We camped at Beaver Dam Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice campground. Kept up very well. Very busy over a July weekend but quiet at night. Every one was friendly. Lots of activities. A word of caution. If you are coming from the west there is just a small sign hanging on the back side of the mail box. Even going slow I missed the entrance. I went about a mile and turned around at the entrance to the high school. Coming from the west heading east there is a guard rail at the entrance. My motorhome is 38 ft and I am towing an extra cab pickup. Without going into the oncoming lane of traffic I swang as wide as I could and still hit the back door, bedside and fender flare on the guard rail. Be cautious when entering this campground. We camped at Beaver Dam Campground in a Motorhome.

We are full timers and chose this campground to complete our tour of Maine based on location and what we had read here. The owners keep the grounds and facilities clean and in good working order. Sites are cleaned of any trash and pine cones, the fire rings are cleaned out, and the sites are raked as the occupants leave. Every two sites share a metal trashcan that is emptied several times each day. This is a family campground with lots of activities (swimming pool, lake with swimming area, canoes/kayaks, new miniature golf, a mining sluice, game room) and is very full on the weekends. However, it is quiet at night. For dog owners, there is an enclosed "Bark Park" where you can let your dog off leash; several toys are provided for the dogs to play with as well as "bags" for cleanup. Owners and staff are very friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable of the area. Only one washing machine and two dryers - could use more of both (we went to a laundromat in town). We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Beaver Dam Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Great place with very involved owners who obviously took great pride in their campground. Nice pool, great lake with swimming and boating. Large field for playing with decent playground. Nice recreation room and camp store. Easy drive to Wells, ME (25mins). Only negative was that sites are very close together however we found quiet hours to be enforced and had very few interruptions during our stay. We camped at Beaver Dam Campground in a Tent Trailer.

Nice Little park. Very dog friendly. Sites are open and spacious. Installing a new playscape for the kids. Wifi available for $20 a week or $3 daily (when it works). The women that own this park are working constantly to make this a nice place (and do they work). Very Clean with garbage pick up daily in front of camper. The pictures in the web-ad are a bit deceiving. The pool is very small, but not bad when the park isn't too busy. The store is small and not a lot available. Limited activities on the weekends. The price is right, but not a lot in the park to do. Great place to stay if here to visit the Wells/Ogunquit/York area. Upgrades that I would recommend would be; to add cable and dependable wifi without the extra fees. We camped at Beaver Dam Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

As indicated by other reviews, this park is very clean and quiet. The women who own this park take great pride in its appearance. Wifi was not working properly, however, they refunded our money without hesitation. Sites were spacious and well maintained. Would have liked to see the new playscape installed in the spring or fall instead of the middle of July, the kids were disappointed. Activities are limited to Saturday. Nice place to stay when visiting the Maine Coast, only 12 miles to beaches. We camped at Beaver Dam Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice little campground. Plenty of room on and between sites. Nice little lake and pool. Well manicured park. Owners seem to be intent on keeping place clean and adding or improving grounds. Nice little but old rec hall. Plenty of activities for kids. We enjoyed this C/G. Close to major Maine attractions such as Kittery or Ogunquit. Definitely quiet here...nice and relaxing. A good deal and must try if you need some R/R. We camped at Beaver Dam Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
