Host was very friendly and accommodating. We had an "opposing" pull through that can take 2 RV's, 180 degrees opposite. There's a nice store where you can order pizza and buy necessities. At least 2 RV repair places within a mile or so. Very convenient to Bangor and plenty of shopping. A little over 1 hour to Bar Harbor. WIFI was excellent and free cable provided about 70 channels. We were here early in May so no pool and park was sparsely populated. I think there are more activities, etc., going on further into the season. We camped at Bangor / Holden KOA (formerly Red Barn Campground) in a Motorhome.

Our first stay at Red Barn, and we were pleasantly surprised. The CG is much larger than it looks like from the road. (Our rate is a combination PA on weekdays and Good Sam for the weekend, by the way). We were given a very nice, large pull thru with great Wifi, a very good cable TV signal, 50 Amp and close to the store, yet in a very peaceful quiet area that we really enjoyed. The owners are diligently working hard to continuously make even more improvements. This is a great place to camp if you plan on visiting Acadia National Forest and Bar Harbor, without having to be in the midst of it all. It's about a 40 -45 minute drive to get to Bar Harbor from here. This park has quite a few seasonals and there are lots of activities for the kids. We were here during their "Christmas in July" weekend and it was lots of fun, even though we are empty nesters. The office has a great little store with lots of camping 'stuff' and gifts. They also have a snack bar that sells ice cream, sandwiches and pizza, which they deliver to your site. We spent 6 nites/7 days here and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The owners, Chris and Sally were great. We camped at Bangor / Holden KOA (formerly Red Barn Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

Great location, since it's near the Interstate, Bangor and Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor. Shopping is very close by and the area is just beautiful.

Clean, spacious, graveled sites. Extremely friendly owners. Showers/bathrooms new and sparkling! Good location which allows for easy day trips to many of Maine's beautiful sites. Would certainly recommend for overnight or extended stays. We camped at Bangor / Holden KOA (formerly Red Barn Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

We camped here for two nights. Great location for visiting Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor. Campground was quite full. Many sites appeared to be seasonal. We had a pull thru FHU. Cable tv service was good. The staff was getting ready for their Christmas in July weekend which seemed to be a big event each year. We would camp here again if in the area. We camped at Bangor / Holden KOA (formerly Red Barn Campground) in a Motorhome.

Nice spacious lot. They are renovating the campground and it shows. Nice fresh crushed rock on roads, brand new bathrooms which were well kept. Very friendly owner. Decent wifi - enough to check your emails. The pool was warm and overall clean, but it definitely could be improved. There were items on the bottom of the pool, dirt on the walls of the pool, the furniture could do with some cleaning, but the hours are generous, lots of activities going on, and strict about cars driving slowly. We camped at Bangor / Holden KOA (formerly Red Barn Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

Under new ownership. This is their second season and they have been working nonstop year round to really re-do this campground. Seasonal sites as well as ample nightly/weekly spaces, including 50 amp pull throughs. Heated pool opening Memorial Day weekend. Plenty of sun, shade, room for the kids to roam and bike (adjacent to elementary school for even more biking area and playground/ball fields). Backs up to conservation land hiking trails. Convenient for day trips to Bangor, Bar Harbor and DownEast Maine and right off the main road, but without much noise. Rear baths were gutted this winter and completely replaced. Cafe/ice cream shop/store totally redone. New playground structure has arrived. We have the furthest back site and still have good Wi-Fi without onerous limits--way above average. Most seasonal guests are home owners in the local area or are snowbirds. We live in "Vacationland" and still choose to make this place our summer home. Renewed pride in the appearance of the entire place was evidence on opening weekend when guests all pitched in with raking and fallen wood removal. Our family camped all over the U.S. (from ME to CA to AK and back) for 2 months in 2013 with our three kids (10-14) and we couldn't be prouder to have this as our hometown campground. Rate reflects seasonal rate. We camped at Bangor / Holden KOA (formerly Red Barn Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

Sites are not level, roads are terrible in park, one lane with cars parked all along side of road, making it difficult to pull motorhome through. Many unkept permanent trailers. Rate is for CG USA, but still too much for what you receive. On the plus side, internet and cable are OK. We camped at Bangor / Holden KOA (formerly Red Barn Campground) in a Motorhome.

This campground is a disappointment. It is a Good Sam park but is not particularly well maintained. Many seasonal campers and the pool was absolutely full of children - not all inviting. The shop is untidy and poorly stocked. The check-in person was more interested in her book than checking me in. Our major reason for moving on though after only one night was that we had to share 30 amps with a tenter. Free WiFi - the best thing about the park. We camped at Bangor / Holden KOA (formerly Red Barn Campground) in a Motorhome.
