The park seems to have great potential with the amenities available and area. But a lot of partying, golf carts riding all hours and fast, kids unsupervised in many areas. Owners very hard to reach and not approachable about problems. They are very short tempered when approached and rude. I have read many reviews saying the same thing so probably will find another park in the area. Too bad because it is a great area and may return under new ownership. - HappyCamper866

Check-in smooth, very friendly staff. We were with friends and we were put in what appeared to be the shoulder of the gravel road, in the back section of the campground. They had us set up with our front being in line with their back, felt like it was an overflow area. The roads were narrow. A lot of campers were set up for the season, it appeared. Saw two with "For Rent" signs on them. Only stayed one night. - dtfoster

They are changing over to a Yogi Bear franchise, seem to be making improvements to the sites and roads. Very shady campground, located right outside of town on a main road (stores w/I a few minutes drive). Our site was in the back row, had 2 neighbors several sites away for the first night but after that we were alone, so very private. Though the other campers seemed very aloof and unfriendly, they drove around in gas powered golf carts and no "hi", no waving. The sites are being leveled, though we almost slide off a ledge of gravel and this was our first big scare w/the camper in our 3rd yr of camping. The cable boxes are in the woods every 3 sites, so had to go out an buy 100 ft cable. The pool is huge, we didn't partake in the daily activities as we were out the 2 days there so can't comment on them. Our kids liked biking around and the huge fish in the feeding ponds, can't call it a "fishing pond". The small store was fine, kids liked the arcade.
We saw very little employees, or if they were employees they never introduced themselves or checked on us. The young girl in the office was sweet, but knew nothing about area or the campground its self, and had no means of finding us information. Asked about nearby fishing at the 20 lakes in a 30 mile radius, she knew nothing. Finally a local gave us directions to a hidden boat launch nearby w/a little beach, was perfect for kids to caught small pumpkin fish and pikes. An older lady at the desk was more helpful but only saw her the last day. The location is good, the KOA is so far out of town would not consider that. Maybe in a few years will try here again. - K S

We liked this park, owners great always doing something around the park. Laundry nice. Have a small gathering room. FHU with cable all works well. Sites a little close for me. Some trees with shade. A lot of seasonals with clutter. Dogs not on leash, as in the rules. Paddle boats, kayaks and canoes free to use. We did. Would stay here again if in the area. - milodog

A nice peaceful park. The laundry looked fairly new. Nice playground for kids. They seem to be constantly cleaning and mowing, always keeping things nice. Owners are very friendly and helpful. Wifi worked well, cable tv ok. Verizon spotty. Sometimes ok, sometimes not. Large lots. - Windshift

A beautiful park on the banks of the river. Quiet and peaceful, even in the pouring rain. Utilities all worked well, wifi and cable worked fine. Would definitely stop here again. - ldukeb

More community than campground! Friendly owners have been running it for 35 years, and with the loyal repeat business they are obviously doing something right. We arrived just in time for the July 4th parade, bingo on Fridays and lots of other activities. And yet, so quiet at night you could hear a pin drop. Lots of birds. One evening another camper brought us firewood as a "welcome" - we've never had that before! We stayed here because it is close to Bigelow hiking, but it wouldn't be a bad spot to just camp and relax either. Verizon mifi worked just OK and cell had problems. Not surprisingly, no T-Mobile service. Very well maintained, lots of tall pines with pine needle flooring. Interior roads were easy to navigate, no low branches with the tall pines. - Roaming Together

We just stayed one night on our way through the park had just opened. Friendly staff. We had a pull through that was plenty long. Cable and WiFi worked fine. Looks to be very family friendly. We did not check out any of the amenities except the dog park. It was clean and bigger than most we've seen. About a quarter of the sites are designated "seasonal". But the sites were well kept. We would stay again. - Patricia57

We were impressed with the park. The folks running the park were extremely friendly and helpful. The park was very clean and well kept. There are elements of the park that are quite aged but overall facilities are very well kept and park is clean, orderly, and was pleasant to visit. The store was well stocked and the prices were reasonable. We would not hesitate to visit again. - Matt7571

We stayed here the weekend of May 20th-22nd with our Western Mountain RV'ers chapter of the Maine Good Sam Club with 2 other members. The campground was pretty empty the weekend we stayed, because it was before Memorial Day and the pool was not open yet. The campground was quiet when we were here due to the lack of campers. There also was not much entertainment/activities due to it being prior to the "official" start of camping season (Memorial Day weekend).
My wife and another chapter member loved the hot tub even though it was small and oddly located. The outdoor pavilion needed better lighting and something added to it such as a movie screen or something of that nature to make it usable for entertainment.
The sites we had were 30/50 Amp full hookup pull thru sites. The sites were either dirt with a lot of roots from the large White Pine trees or large sized rock/gravel sites which were tripping/ankle twisting dangers. The sites were partly shaded from the large White Pine trees around the sites.
The dog park was OK but it was small and the fence did not go all the way to the ground so the ball kept going under it. The walking/hiking trails were not marked and were actually also ATV trails. The store was small and we did not use any of the bathroom/shower facilities. The staff was OK but not overly friendly.
We did go into downtown Skowhegan on Saturday of our stay (about a 10-15 min drive) to go to the breakfast buffet at Ken's Restaurant and some of our members went shopping in Skowhegan and to the 10 mile yard sale that was going on that weekend.
We would stay here again but probably try it during the prime season time between Memorial Day & Labor Day. - HappyCamperMaine04938

This is a small RV park (8 sites) that is part of an Outfitter that provides Raft Trips, ATV Rentals, Cabins and Tent Sites. They also have a Pub that serves food. The sites are grass with electric, water and cable TV. They are located just off the highway so there is highway noise. The $42 rate is a little high for what they have to offer. - Michael Kibler

After 15,000 plus miles of RVing we may have found one of the rare destination campgrounds. Fifty five acres on the Kenebec river in Bingham Maine. with 2,000 foot turf runway, tent sites, platform tents, various size cabins, no limit big rig sites with great Wi-Fi and cable, well stocked bar, decent small cafe menu and a full range of outdoor activities including ATV trails, white water rafting, moose safari and more. - ctpres

This is a nice remote campground. It is owned and operated by a very nice, older couple. Most of the camp maintenance was done by the seasonal campers. Camp facilities are good and clean, just missing some TLC, (paint, appearance qualities). There is a long hill climb on the road to this campground. A short walk to several mountain ponds. We look forward to staying here again. - JGS

Rustic and off the beaten path describes this Park. In the fall of the year, the shaded sites seemed really dark. It is possible for big rigs to navigate the Park, but it must be done carefully. The dump is at the back of the Park and not on the way out. There is a comfy gathering room: complete with couches, TV, books, wood stove and gameroom. The laundry is adequate. A short walk takes you to a charming little pond (boats, kayaks, swimming etc.) with loons in residence. There is no internet access. Friendly owners are on site. The bathrooms and showers need a bit more cleaning. - Al and Anne-Marie

Spent 2 nights here: very, very quiet which I liked. Campers were mostly seasonals. Maintenance levels are low and detract from the overall experience. Bathrooms were old: peeling paint, buggy, sluggy and just unpleasant. I would not use the shower. You get the impression that the owners make just enough money from the seasonals to get by and either have nothing left or no desire to improve the campground for "transient" traffic. I don't want organized activities, dances, games etc., but I do want a clean and tidy campground. Our site was level although small and we overlooked a neighbor: luckily he went to bed early and didn't "smoke" us out with his campfire. The playground had a lot of rusty tonka toys which is not what I would want my children to play with. I feel bad to write this as the people were nice. If I were a seasonal user, and all-contained (shower, bathroom), I might consider this place, but I would not return as an occasional. - blue sky
