A great getaway in Great Pond, ME. Camping in the Maine woods, with a beautiful lake in view. The rec center has free wifi, which is helpful as we didn't have any cell phone coverage at all (Sprint and T-Mobile). Rec Center has a variety of games to entertain the kids, as well as a lit fire to ready by. You can rent boats as well. No sewer, so plan accordingly. We would definitely be back. - RVerFamily

Very nice, helpful and friendly owners who directed us to our large, shady pull-thru site. All hookups worked well. Very good WIFI. Good cable TV until cable company made changes that eliminated the cable. But there were lots of OTA channels available. Laundry/rec building was clean with 2 washers and 2 dryers, a TV, a large table, comfy chairs and lots of books and puzzles. The campground has a nice pool, small store and sells propane. There is short hiking trail near the back of the campground. In addition to RV sites there are several really nice tent sites. Sites are back from the road so there is little road noise. It is quite quiet and peaceful at night. The roads within the park are gravel and easy to maneuver although there are a few potholes. The grass is kept neatly mowed. Good Sam discount is available. - MkvCjv

Brand new owners and a new name forthcoming for this campground. The new name is Cold River Campground. New owners making some upgrades and are very nice, helpful and friendly. Directed to site by owner. Roomy site with some shade. FHU all worked well. WIFI very good......owner was still trying to get the cable company to hook it up but over the air stations were readily available. We would definitely return. - Bob & Stephanie

We stayed here in a 40' MH. The dirt road into the park was long with huge ruts you cannot avoid, resulting in a bone-jarring trip into and out of the park. Interior roads were dirt in poor condition with tight turns, lots of trees to watch for, and potholes. There was no gate into the park and no security.
Hookups: We were told when we made our reservation that only 30 amp sites were available. No problem, we can still use an AC on 30 amps. Except that the 30 amp site didn't generate enough power to keep our shore power running. With nothing running but our refrigerator, we had to unhook completely at night and run off our batteries otherwise the sound of the surge protector kicking on and off kept us awake. The campground manager walked to within ten feet of the electrical pedestal to "inspect" it and told us there had never been a complaint and there was nothing he could do (other campers we talked with told us that the park is well known for having poor electrical service.) The manager moved us to another site but we had the same low-to-no voltage. This had never happened before to us and hasn't happened since, so it wasn't a problem with our coach. Although sometimes water pressure was weak, we had no problem with the sewer hookup.
From Friday to Sunday it was party city with smoky campfires and loud music. The smoke was so bad we kept our windows shut but because it was still hot at night, the temperatures in the coach soared. People let their dogs bark at every passerby. Weekends were hell. The police showed up one afternoon to arrest some drug dealers in their RV and all afternoon there were officers with AK-47s walking through the park.
Site conditions: Sites were mostly filled with seasonal campers and were very close to one another. Site surfaces were dirt and grass was minimal. There's a general feeling of neglect. At night the only light were from the many campfires; there was no campground lighting.
The good: Check-in was fast and easy. Staff was friendly. The campground was set right on beautiful Pushaw Lake and there was a boat launch. The sunsets were very pretty. Kayaks were available for rental. Free Wi-Fi was available in the office. While the signal did not reach any of the campsites, a picnic table was set outside the office for those who wanted to bring their computers to utilize it. - Trisha_slp

We stayed one night while in transit. I would stay here again, even though it is a little over priced. Approach roads to and within this park is the worst I have ever encountered, they are terrible!!!! Many sites have permanent trailers, though most were well kept. The laundry consists of 2 washers and 2 driers, so expect to wait your turn. This park is right on the lake. - R V Camper

Camp ground has lots of seasonal sites with older units parked on them. Years of additions, decks, and out side attachments which makes the area "cluttered" looking. Assigned a site to us that was very difficult to put a 39' RV in due to the many trees in the area. There were other sites available that would have been easier to set up in. The lady on the phone was very friendly and accommodating, but the lady who checked us in gave us "no" greeting, was not busy, but gave us the impression that we were putting her out by having to check us in. Lots of dusty dirt pot hole filled roads around and many tent sites with high grass conditions. This is an older camp ground that appears to be getting run down. We would NOT return to the C/G. - Lakeside013104

We stayed here twice; once on the way into Canada and again on our return. Very nice camp and super staff. Our first visit we only had water & electricity and the site was a bit tight but on the return trip we had a full-hookup pull through and it was great. The only tricky thing is turning left into the campground from the road as it's very busy. We were there in off-season but they have a nice store and looks like a cafe. - Catsinatrailer

We had a great stay even if it were only one night. Would love to come back. Good WiFi. Staff was very helpful. Sites were a little close but nothing compared to many campgrounds. Baths were clean. - morrison

The owners plan on more upgrading. They need to have a better cleaning of the showers and restrooms. The bath mats were filthy and were never moved the entire 6 nights we were here. The electric service was weak. Couldn't run ac and microwave at the same time. Water hook up and electric plug are located at the front of the sites so unless you have a very long cord or an extension cord you can't utilize the nice long spaces. Dump station is a little tricky to get to but easy to use. - Rkserv

Great campground with plenty of amenities. Large spaces that are slightly sloped, but we had no problem getting level. The seasonal campsites are not junky like like they are at so many private campgrounds. They have games and books available in the laundry. The staff is super friendly and helpful. Clear skies for pointing our satellite dish. We got great TMobile service and the campground has really good free wifi. Great location to explore Bangor, and an easy day trip to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park (about 40 miles). - Chuck Shrader

Good, clean, calm, park, with no demerits. FHU, good wifi, some OTA channels, open skies for satellite, level gravel pull-thru sites that were plenty long and far enough from the neighbors, RV repair and supply shop next door, and a good base for exploring Bangor or a day trip to Bar Harbor and Acadia. The staff and neighbors were all friendly and relaxed --- "sure you can check out an hour later" --- that kinda thing. - darwinmoore

Great base from which to explore Bar Harbor while avoiding the crowds in the campgrounds there. Spacious sites stepping down a slight hill, had a bit of an issue leveling but it worked out. All utilities worked well, including wifi, and I was out in the open so my satellite worked. Would definitely stay here again. Be forwarned that taking a large RV into Bar Harbor itself could be challenging due to the narrow streets and the crowds, even in the off season. - ldukeb
