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. We camped at Lake Pemaquid Camping in a Motorhome.

Stayed one night meeting up with friends while we were on our way north. Nice facility right on the lake, with a lot of activities for kids and families. More of a destination/resort type campground than a stop over place. We camped at Lake Pemaquid Camping in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here for 12 days only because we could find no other place in the area to stay. There is no satellite service, too many trees. No air antenna either. We had to move our coach several times to get far enough away from the trees, so we could get our slide out. We use an external water filter/softner and after two days we had to change it because it was a dark brown color.

There are seasonal campers here and they do not keep their spaces very nice. I will never stay here again. We camped at Lake Pemaquid Camping in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Lake Pemaquid Camping in a Travel Trailer.

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. We camped at Lake Pemaquid Camping in a Travel Trailer.

We visited the park off season,and found it very quiet. Our site (123) had a beautiful lake view,however,it was a real challenge to get a 27 foot trailer down the road to the site. Many of the sites are small,but the staff was helpful in choosing one we could use. We were using the park as a base for a sea kayaking trip,so we didn't use the park amenities,but we saw a nice camp store,swimming pool,and laundry facilities. We will be returning next year.

Tips for other Campers:

The park is close to the village of Damariscotta,with lots of little shops.For great,affordable lobster dinners right on the dock,visit Broad Cove Marine on Medomak Rd. There is also a kayak outfitter in the same location.

Campground is on lake, but access is limited. Most lake side sites are small or have seasonal campers. Roads and sites are dirt and gravel. Sites are scattered thru forest and can be tight, close to neighbors and not level. Lots of activities for kids. Close to shopping, restaurants, etc. We would probably look elsewhere to have some peace and quite. We camped at Lake Pemaquid Camping in a Motorhome.

Returning after 11 years away, this is a nice park, sites looked a little rough when we first arrived but once we were set up they were just fine. Very friendly at check in. No cable but we were able to get a few digital channels on the TV to catch the news. The boys loved the skate park and BMX trail as well as motor boating on the lake, they have put this on the must return list for next year. We enjoys the area and took a trip to Boothbay Harbor, also enjoyed the mini golf course that they have. All in all a nice weekend. Did not swim in the pool or lake but both seemed nice, enjoyed the entertainment from our site. We camped at Lake Pemaquid Camping in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed two nights, and I liked it a lot. We weren't happy with the site that they assigned to us, but when I asked if we could have another site, they gave us one that we picked. The playground is super (makes you want to be a kid again). I haven't been to the pool, but it looked nice. The view to the lake is gorgeous. (We didn't have a lake-view site.) I would camp there again, no doubt. We camped at Lake Pemaquid Camping in a Motorhome.

Hooray for Lake Pemaquid! All I can say is it's so beautiful!!! The ride up to Damariscotta, the campground, the area, even the site are all so beautiful. The facilities are fine and always nice and clean every time we go there. This is camping the way I remember it when I was a kid. My kids are getting older, but they still love to ride the choo-choo! For the guys, it's all about the fishing. Every year we create new, great memories and this year was no exception. Laid back and relaxed is how I would describe this place. One of our favorites in Maine! We camped at Lake Pemaquid Camping in a Tent Trailer.

This campground has a lot to do for a family if you don't mind spending money; right on the lake with tennis, mini golf, swimming, canoes, aqua-bikes, kayaks, and even power boats for rent, as long as you don't mind spending money. They have several playgrounds, a pool, multiple hot tubs (even two designated for kids) and a large Rec hall with stuff for teenagers in the evening. In our opinion the nicest sites are those without sewer hookups, because there are a lot of permanent setups where there are sewers, which is unfortunately where we wound up. The "woodland" sites with sewer are jammed in together and you feel like you are in a trailer park, whereas the non-sewer "hill" sites are just like being in a state park, with privacy and woods and a price discount as well. Some of the waterfront sites are spectacular, although it would be difficult to get a larger trailer backed into a few of the sites on the peninsula. So ambiance of the park varies widely through the park, even within one region. Also some sites were wet and some were dry with Maine's wet summer, which would be difficult to plan for. Relatives of ours without campers rented cabins and were very happy with the cabins. We camped at Lake Pemaquid Camping in a Travel Trailer.

This is a great place for kids - we have two little boys. They had been bored at Searsport Shores - there just weren't any kids around and no activities. Then we got here and there was plenty for them to do. There is a small zipline that they spent hours on, and a skateboard park that they played at even though they didn't have a skateboard. It has a cottage feel - it isn't fancy or perfect, but the activities really help. There is a pool and hot tubs - we liked that they had two hot tubs for kids. They have a free newspaper which is a nice touch. All in all, the kids really enjoyed it - and that is what makes a holiday! We camped at Lake Pemaquid Camping in a Travel Trailer.

The campground is kid friendly, but the activities are half-hearted, the skate park is run down and dangerous, the pool is not heated, the laundry is broken and only has cold water, the customer service is TERRIBLE, The woman at reservations is rude and could careless if you stay there or come back for a repeat stay. I have been staying here for 2 wks or more for the past 6 years and they do not even know my name or care if I come back. I brought a few "problems" to their attention and I the reply was if you do not like it go some where else! I normally do not complain so this was a total shock to me. I would not recommend this campground to anyone except rude tourist! We camped at Lake Pemaquid Camping in a Travel Trailer.

Even though the weather wasn't very cooperative, my family had a great time. The playground is great. They have a zip line that my older children loved. There were dances or entertainment almost every night (except Sunday). We were able to go on Chucky's Choo Choo and a fire engine ride during our eight nights. The lake level was really high from all the rain and a couple of sites were under water. My kids enjoyed fishing in the lake and my five year old caught his first fish. We will definitely go back and have reserved our site for next year. The snack shop isn't very expensive. My wife got a cooked lobster one night for under $10.00. Look forward to next year!!!

This park has a lot of trees (and shade)? While we were here it rained and rained and rained, so we really couldn't tell about the shade. Sites were such that the utilities were a stretch from our hook-ups. Please pickup your dog’s droppings every time. Thanks! We camped at Lake Pemaquid Camping in a Fifth Wheel.
