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

The campground is located on a fairly busy highway 2 miles north of Skowhegan. Convenient to Wal-Mart and other shops and restaurants. Highway traffic noise varied from bad to non-existent. The sites are either grass, gravel, or dirt. Most spaces are large and at irregular angles and tend to be well shaded in heavy woods. Some sites are in the open. We camped five nights in a 50 amp full hookup site. Power boxes throughout the park appear to be brand new. Water pressure was the best we've had in a while. The Wi-Fi worked great. The bathrooms were older but clean and in good condition. The Passport America discount lowered our cost to $28 a night. This is a family CG with lots of kids, campfires, and activity around the pool. - whizbang
