$15 rate represents a $450 monthly rate plus electric. We intended to stay a month, ending up staying for over two. This is a little slice of heaven folks, the wife and I have RV'd over 30 years and this is one of nicest campgrounds and nicest people you will ever meet. The campground is for adults only, no frills for kids which is exactly what we look for. Very clean campground, beautiful landscaping, right on the Kennebec River. I caught several small mouth bass at the dock, sturgeon can be seen jumping out of the river, eagles soaring, very pristine setting. The owners are wonderful people, host regular Friday night dinners, and do a wonderful job of making you feel like this is home. The campground is centrally located, easy enough to get to the coast or to the mountains on day trips. Augusta is 10 minutes to the north, plenty to see. We will definitely return to this park. - JamBus

Rate is weekly rate plus tax. We are staying here for 2 weeks. The park is quiet and seems quite secure. Each vehicle gets a remote to operate the gated entrance. Most of the sites are seasonal but there are a couple sites available. Everybody we have met is quite friendly. Sat at the river yesterday and watched several eagles fishing. We are about 50 feet from railroad tracks but have not seen any train since we got here 5 days ago. Paved rail/trail is beside the tracks. Owner is very friendly and helpful. If space is available here when we are in the area we will stay here again. - User1984

We found this campground thru Passport America and the rate reflects their discount. The owner added 3 new back in sites this year, the other 11 sites are taken by seasonal campers. Our site (13) is wooded, full shade, with a gravel drive and pad. It is a short walk past the other sites to the Kennebec river and marina. This is a great stop for folks traveling to or from Canada or someone with a boat that is lucky enough to get a slip in the marina. - SunnyTravelers

This KOA has new owners, and they are lovely. They are working hard to fix things up, and soon this should be a great camp. Right now, it is very rough. This is a KOA "Journey" camp with a pool and no other frills, making the >$50 price tag outrageous. We were greeted pleasantly, sign in was quick, and we were escorted to our site. Access to all sites is up a relatively steep hill. Each site is surrounded by trees making it very difficult for big rigs to navigate into and out of their pull through. Sites are hard compacted gravel that made it easy to level our 40' rig. Electrical and water hookups are good, and are located in the middle of the site. The sewer is all the way at the rear of the site. Even with trees we were able to open all of our slides, but not the awnings (and they weren't needed in the shade). This camp is in the forest so there is absolutely no way to use a satellite dish for TV, and only a few channels are available via antenna. There is no cable. The camp WIFI worked well. AT&T was at two bars LTE. - OH2SD

Typical KOA, overpriced for narrow, close sites. Sites are terraced up a hill. Utilities were good and site was long enough and level. No cable and slow but useable Wi-Fi. Several over the air channels. Heavily treed so forget the satellite. - starwind

They are running the park like a business because you pay for absolutely everything which is generally much more expensive than elsewhere. the owners are ok but not overly friendly or accommodating. With their location and the prices they charge the "all you can eat" pancake breakfast should be free. No need to incur a cost of $4 per person. they advertise activities but there we none. We would not stay here again. - Esse

Very nice owner's and host staff, restaurant and small supply store. Beautiful lake access with a dock for boats and visiting boats. Mostly outdated playground for kids but the lake is the main draw with a jump float and nice clean beach. Steady 30a power and decent pricing with flexible staff. We extended our stay by a half day and they charged me only $6. Now I have to be honest and list the bad - the access road is terrible and nearly 3/4 of a mile long with steep rises and falls, some overhanging tree limbs and rutted areas. Also, the sites are tight tight tight. This is NOT a place for anyone towing something longer then a 34' trailer of any type. The roads are narrow and people park their cars into the the road, I am still surprised (thanks to my wife spotting objects) that I didn't tear the roof or take out a corner marker. - mwebber78

NOTE: GPS does not recognize Norris Point Road. The correct address is Norris Hill Road which ends at the campground. Small, mostly seasonal campground. Sites can not be booked for less than 7 days until after Memorial Day. Minimal activities: crafts, bingo, weekend horseshoe tournament. The Saturday night we stayed they had a great band. Non seasonal sites are grassy with very little shade. Small store with basics. 6 miles to get to any services. Too many seasonals tear around on golf carts for such a small campground. Lake is beautiful and quite warm for Maine. We probably won't go back. - Everyboysmomma

Service at the Office was sketchy. Sometimes they were there, other times not. They couldn't find our reservation and had to call the owner at home to get the ok. Our site was quite uneven and the sewer inlet was up higher than our trailer outlet. Cable hookup was available but didn't work. If someone visits for any length of time...it's $5 per person. I'm an older guy and my son stopped by to help me hook up...$5. the park is situated on a pretty pond, that's a plus. - MCHug

All hookups worked fine. We were thankful for the cable since our satellite tv didn't work. The park could use a little extra TLC as it has a run down tired look. The bathrooms needed cleaning. There were cob webs that needed to be brushed away from last year and a coat of paint wouldn't hurt. Our GPS registered a 42% downgrade coming into the park. For some reason, they kept blocking the road as you entered (probably to stop people coming in too fast). A fox then a skunk lived (or died?) under the office making it smell so bad the managers couldn't even work there. The laundry room had two of four dryers broken and only two washers. They worked well but were also housed in the stinky office building. - Melodycthomas

Stayed here just one night on our way from Massachusetts to Bar Harbor. Challenging, steep roads to the park led to fairly flat camping. Nice lake, nice playground, mostly seasonal campers - nice folks. Our golden retriever enjoyed a swim while we enjoyed a beautiful sunset. - Upstater

Nice lake swimming during heat wave. Very close to neighbors. Sand and grave hard to keep out of camper. Electricity kept going on and off. Grounds are not landscaped and not attractive or inviting. We stayed here to be able to visit with nearby family and beyond that convenience was not particularly enjoyable. The park is almost all seasonal campers. - carmilake

This was a convenient one night stopover from New Brunswick Canada to VT. It has a lovely lakeside setting with many seasonals and families with kids. As mentioned by others, the access road to the park is 3/4 mile of unpaved and bumpy travel but once inside the park the roads were fine.
Our unshaded site was part of an interior circular grassy area. None of the shady perimeter sites along the lakefront were available. We had a comfortable distance from our neighbor for our slide-out and the grassy site was level. We had 30 amp service but did not use their water or WiFi. There was a dump station near the exit but none at the site.
There were several families with kids, both in tents and in RVs. It seemed very family oriented.
Management does have lots of rules and signs. At registration we were handed a plastic bag for trash and a list of 28 rules. Signage in the (only?) bathroom was "no washing dishes or pans in sinks" and "washrooms closed between 8a and 9:30a". Perhaps the park's emphasis on kids was the reason for having so many rules. - BP106

Old smaller campground but buildings and landscape in good condition. Staff was very friendly and very helpful. Approximately 60 percent are permanent campers. Campground is right on the lake but most water view sites are taken by permanent campers. They do rent canoes and kayaks and would be a good place for fishing. Campground has some shaded areas and very limited number of 50 amp and a few long pull thru sites. Campground road had horrible potholes on road into camp. They did drag the road before we left which made the road bearable. We camped here because it was a good Sam Park but campground would not give the 10% discount unless you paid in cash. Never experienced this from a Good Sam park. - fulltimehusker

Reminded me of a state park with full hook ups. The entrance is literally at the end of a (3) mile long gravel road where it dead ends, so don't be alarmed. We had one of about 10 pull throughs close to the entrance and it was ok. Extensively treed, so-so water pressure, no wifi period, iffy cell service. Had to ask the check in people several questions after we checked in and their responses were less than helpful. Most likely won't stay again if in the area. - jc2

Rustic campground in the woods! Great for a weekend, week, or more. Campground is clean and well maintained. Facilities are constantly being improved. Sites are level--no concrete slabs but as I said they are level! Plenty of things to do for everyone! - Mcpowder

If you like a rustic campground, you will love this place. It is very wooded and some of the roads are a bit rough, but very passable. We have always had the same water site each time we have been there, as we and the dog, can go swimming just steps away from the camper door. Larger rigs may have a hard time with some of the corners, so be sure to be aware of that. According to their web site, their new pull-thru sites are now available. - dylansmom

Stayed October 2017 The fall season in the north is always a spectacular time of year, and this was a pretty spectacular place to stay and enjoy it. The park is located lakeside and over a large farm property, it is an ideal setting away from traffic and other noise. We had the park to ourselves at this time of year, but the site we stayed in seemed roomy enough that having neighbours wouldn't be a problem. Services all worked without a problem and were located handy to the spot we pulled into. Since the park was empty the owners gave us the option of pulling lateral to our site so we would not have to unhook a tow vehicle. We opted to back in after unhooking so we could enjoy the sunset sitting outside. The spot we stayed was away from the lake, but no less enjoyable as it was an easy walk to get lakeside. The park has a fantastic barn social facility that must be perfect for weddings and events. There are two sizable fire pits that must be used in the prime season for parkwide gatherings. There is also a stage where live entertainment can be hosted, complete with a grass hill facing it making for the perfect venue. There are a number of permanent rv's in spots by the lake, all appeared to be well kept and cared for. The owners definitely care for the facility, and they were extremely hospitable too. - Riptorn

On the plus side the one staff member we met was friendly. We asked for a pull-through and were placed in an area where they put overnighters. There was nobody else in the area and we were allowed to park sideways so we didn't have to unhook our toad. On the down side this area was muddy gravel that had not had the trash picked up in quite a while. None of the fire pits had been cleaned and all had cans and bottles or other trash in them. We saw a couple of dogs running free off leash. Our area had been frequented by them and their wastes had not been picked up. We had no desire to spend a second night. - arpijay

Rate reflects PA discount during the week and full price on the weekend. Had choice of 3 sites and chose one on the hill. Very quiet up there. Lots of semi-permanent RVs. They are local and keep the RV there for the weekend etc.. FHU with 30amp power was OK until the heat wave hit and then the AC's pulled it down too low for me to run mine. Eventually all power was lost in the whole area. Not just the park. Very helpful and friendly staff. I didn't swim in the lake but the wife did and enjoyed it. They had activities on the weekends. There are signs on Hwy.1 on both ends of Winslow Hill Rd. Easy to find. We visited lots of towns, Acadia and Bar Harbor from there. Made a good base camp. - Fulltime 5er

No services and you must carry your trash out. We stayed in Site 20 right on the lake. This state park is small but very nice. It is about 37 miles east of Augusta right on route 3. There are about ten sites right on the lake and if you have a boat you can tie it right up in front of your site. Restrooms are new like many of the Maine State Parks with individual bathrooms, showers and sink. Nicely done! The State of Maine got a grant to construct these washrooms a couple of years ago and most of their state parks now have really nice ones that are modern. No services here but for an overnight or a week most RV’s can live without it. There is a public picnic area that is very nice with a swimming area next to the campground. Since we were there in September the rates have dropped. We paid as an out of stater $19 but in season it must be close to $25 or higher. It is a good place to stop driving over to Acadia or to stops along the coast! - gsnakehill

Lake Pemaquid CG is a huge place with many features: beaches, boathouses, a store, playgrounds, etc. It is very family-friendly and there were lots of kids riding around on bikes and playing various games,swimming, eating ice cream, and generally having a good time. The upkeep of the entire facility is so-so. The main paved road is hard to tell from the many dirt roads because the paving is in poor condition. There are lots of trees and some grass but it isn't particularly manicured. The water is lovely and because it isn't the ocean, it is not too cold to swim in.
There are many seasonal campers and they are scattered around in the CG. There are a variety of sites and there's probably one to suit anyone's taste.
There was one area (near us) where a noisy group of seasonal campers seemed to gather every night to have a fire and drink and make way too much noise. This is a beautiful location and probably ideal for families who like outdoor recreation. - virginianola

Very family oriented park. If you don't have kids you won't want to stay here. Free WiFi is only in one building that is locked all the time. Poor AT&T signal. Pool and spa area overrun with kids. - AMM

This is a huge park as RV parks go. The park is on a lake but the beach is not particularly nice, most campers use the pool for swimming. The playground is very good for the kids by offering unusual activities like a swing bridge and a small zip line. The camp store and snack bar operate well. Since the park is so large, it lacks the personal service that you receive in a smaller park. Weekends are hectic since the park is full, things quiet down some during the week.
The check out is somewhat awkward; you have to stop at the office to receive your deposit on the gate pass and there is no place to pull your rig over to the side. It can cause a bit of a bottle neck.
WI-FI is weak and only available at the rec hall, no cable TV. AT&T is very weak. We were able to obtain satellite TV from our site. We stayed for five days. - Nautilus

Our first time here and the experience was great. This is one of the cleanest, most attractive RV parks we've ever been in. Instead of being crowded into a line of campsites a mere few feet apart, our campsite was roomy and our closest neighbor 40 or so yards away. The sites are tastefully sited so that one can have a view of the tidal basin, shade, open sun or whatever one wants. We had full hookups. The staff is friendly as well as our fellow campers. Some were in RVs, some in tents, some in motor homes. Pricy but worth it. - gcd28

If you're after rustic sites and a beautiful view this park is for you. There are not a lot of sites for big 5th wheels or motor homes. It's mainly for tent and small trailer camping. We camped in a 32' 5th wheel and, to get to our site, we had to maneuver past some bushes and low hanging limbs. Our site was on grass. The facilities were located on the left side so we had to pull in and then back out when we left - but it wasn't bad. The view was spectacular. The campground is up on a hill so the river and tributaries were beautiful. They have a very nice large salt water pool so it was good for kids. My only issue was how inconsistent the power was. We knew going in that they only had 30A so we were prepared to only run one air conditioner at a time. However, I don't believe the service was a full 30A as the air conditioner compressor kept cycling off when demand was high in the park. We hit the heat wave that was in the NE so a couple of days it was near 90 with 80% humidity. Definitely needed A/C to work properly! With nothing else on the microwave took 6-7 minutes to boil a cup of water. We survived but at $90/day with no cable, WiFi and inconsistent power I don't think the value was very high. There were beautifully shaded sites for tents and small trailers so if that's what you're using it may be worth it to you. - AZ Retired Traveler

BEWARE!! Infested with ticks!!! Sewer sites have less privacy than a WalMart parking lot. We took the dogs for one walk around the property and both dogs were covered! They were dog ticks, but still - totally disgusting. If you know you have a tick problem, be responsible and post signs or spray. A tick once in a while is nature, but this was a bit much. Needless to say, my wife and I couldn't sleep cause we had the "heebee geebee's" all night. My wife actually found a tick hanging out in my beard on the way home. We picked this campground based off of reviews and recommendations from others, and I have to say I am REALLY surprised. Our site was in a field, 10' away from our neighbors- in hindsight we should have asked for a non-sewer site, those sites looked a lot more private and wooded. Additionally our neighbors had a dog, (you know the little cat-ish rat dogs with "small man's syndrome), who was off leash the entire time (against the rules we were told no less than three times when checking in. We are responsible dog owners, we play by the rules and make sure our dogs behave. We were nervous the entire time that this little rat dog would provoke one of our dogs who are much bigger, and we would have a situation. Additionally the dog across the way, also a little Napoleon was a yapper! The owners just let him yap!! Needless to say, after one evening we had enough, packed up and went home without even checking out. $55 down the drain.... you win some, you lose some. I hope this post helps others out... this is an otherwise really nice campground with nice facilities and views. Field sites are like camping in a parking lot! Only camp on those sites if you spend the whole tim inside your camper, or if you like your neighbors- like family. Sites are almost close enough to read your neighbors paper over their shoulder from your site. - dewnut
