9 RV Parks near Newport, Maine

We stopped for a night on our way home from a trip to Nova Scotia. It is mid September, so the camp's residents were mostly seasonals. Seasonal sites occupy probably 70% of the campground, so if you are looking for a site in the height of the season you may want to call first.
We camped on site 22, right on Sebasticook Lake. The view was gorgeous and the site well maintained. There are only 7 lake sites and another 7 with front lake view out of 69. Lake front sites do not have sewer hook up. Full hook up sites are $30.00.
There are several docks and boat ramps and a small beach.
The owners were very nice and friendly. Our one night stay was uneventful and enjoyable.
The campground is conveniently located close to Hwy 95 and on Route 2 for travelers driving the scenic route East - West. - Catalina W

A very nice park. Judging by the amount of decks, sheds, etc. I'd estimated that 90% of the park is seasonal. Showers are .25 for 7.5 minutes or .10 for 2.5 minutes. I found the water pressure terrible. They are also very small and cramped. Laundry is reasonable at 1.25/wash and 1.00/dry. Firewood is 5.00 for a wheelbarrow full and paper and kindling is free. Great staff and a nice quiet location. - MSSW

If you enjoy small quiet campgrounds and your equipment is not too big, you will like this park. It is clean, well maintained and has easy lake access for water craft. The back-in sites are on the lakeside and the pull-thru sites are across the road from them. Just be sure to check if the site is level enough for your rig before registering since there are not many sites and some are not very level. They have Wi-Fi at the library (beside the pull-thru sites) and a large number of books for exchange. - JTD2

Large, level gravel sites with FHU's. Spacious grass "yard" areas, pool, shuffleboard, horseshoes, small playground, and clubhouse/store. Trees presented a satellite problem. Big plus, for golfers, is the 18-hole course on site. Location is a bit off the beaten path so sightseeing requires quite a bit of driving. They have the best wifi we have seen in quite a long time of full-timing. The rate reflects the weekly rate. The interior gravel roads need some attention for rutting/roughness. - rvrrat520

We stayed here 4 nights on our way to Canada. Very easy access right next to a large golf course. The spaces were large with good wifi and satellite reception. The park is only a 5 minute drive to grocery shopping and has a Walmart Supercenter. We stayed here in a 44' motorhome, nice level spaces. - Old Farts

Quiet place! Clean and low key park. This was the quietest and most inexpensive park we have ever stayed at. Not a lot of amenities but also an inexpensive rate. Park is easy to navigate - Matt7571

We stayed for 4 nights. Some nights the traffic noise from I-95 was really noticeable and other nights not so much. This is a small park with some seasonals and one section with about 5 pull thrus 1 of which seems to be a seasonal. There are 2 chickens, 1 cat, 1 old dog and a duck with a hurt leg that roam around. There is 1 washer and 1 dryer in the same building as the bathrooms. The pull thrus were fairly level and grassy and I was able to get my Direct TV dish locked in. The road the park is on is pretty rough. - mrracechaser

Good overnight transit stay. It is about 2 miles from the interstate exit on rough secondary roads, but is reasonably quiet even though the interstate is not far away. Chickens, duck, cat plus a very friendly host made for an interesting stop. No frills ... just a good transit stop. We would stay again. Arriving near dark, the mosquitoes were present and hungry. - cherib

Lots of full time run down sites. The manager was OK but the office etc was a mess. Tiny pool. One washer and dryer. The restrooms were clean but run down. $30 as weekend but I'm not sure I'd even stay here at the half price Passport America rate. - kiwitravelers

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 park is over rated! We had difficulty getting down to where our site was and there was absolutely no way we could pull through due to trees although we had booked a pull through site well in advance, giving the details of our unit. The campground has a PA system that they use instead of walkie talkies to call staff to escort to sites as well as announce events...very annoying, especially on a busy weekend. We would not stay here again. - Keewatin Kids

Very nice park for visiting Bangor area, obvious because all the RV Adventure Tour groups use it. There was also an Escapee Rally and Cedar Creek Reunion during our time...busy place! Wonderful people and good restaurant next door that delivers to your coach. Everything worked great and an ice cream social! - z32k12

We stayed in our new to us trailer while our adult kids and friends stayed in the rental trailer - top notch campground! We have camped here a few time over the years and always enjoy this campground the most out of the other in the Bangor area. Owners are great and take good care of the campground. - daniel31

I have been reviewing this campground for 7 years in a row. Now: there are better campgrounds somewhere based on what you want, but this campground has only gotten better every year since I have been reviewing. Better yet: its the only campground I stayed at this year in the USA, based on economics.
The owner is a great guy, who goes all out to make sure his customers are always satisfied. I have never been treated better. The WIFI is not free, but it worked great!
Every campground that offers free wifi: it sucks! So, paying few bucks for good WIFI is not an issue.
I look forward to going back to Pleasant Hill next year: as its our favorite! - Squappy

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

Two Rivers was great! The staff was nice, friendly & efficient, our site was perfect, the bathroom facilities were good and the view was perfect. Very strong wifi signal which is amazing for an RV park. They could have charged premium $$$ for this spot based on what we've been paying, yet it was reasonable and fantastic! If you're traveling in this area, you owe it to yourself to stay here - a real treat! - Cinzia

This is a nice small campground along side a river. The site was large enough for our big rig with easy in and out. Utilities and WiFi worked well. Staff was very friendly. There are many seasonal who were very friendly. - Fire344

The facilities for laundry and restrooms were not acceptable at all. The "activity room" looked more like a storage room with a sofa, tv, pool table and video games scattered about. But the mop and mop bucket along with other cleaning tools and equipment, were just sitting around in there as well. The roads need some work, but were not terrible. The sites themselves are close together and grass and/or mud only. This park accepts Vouchers from the City of Bangor for the homeless. So you have tenters camping anywhere from 25 yards and sometimes closer next to expensive rigs. There was no enforcement of their own rules, i.e. pet leashes, speed limit, noise, etc. The grass at the entry and in the middle of the park is mowed often and well kept, but maintenance around the rigs, was spotty. Internet was iffy, sometime on, sometime off and when on, extremely slow. - Drtskirt

This is the second year we've stayed here on our way to and from New Brunswick. The management here is very friendly and the all the facilities are very well kept. I see some very trivial complaints in the reviews and wonder why the negative comments. It's supposed to be a campground not the Hilton. - johnny ringo

Well, where do I start. We have stayed at the campground over the past few years, giving positive reviews. I don't know what happened this year (maybe a new owner?) but it has gone DOWN HILL. Partying until 3-4am, people DRUNK in the campground walking around and disturbing others, the owner complaining about people yet choosing to do nothing about it. The owners were extremely unprofessional and rude. We will never stay here again, nor will we recommend this pitiful campground to anyone again. We are so disappointed in the ignorance of the owners (maybe new ones). We have also noticed that many of the people who use to frequent this campground have left and gone with the other campground up the road in Bangor. - daniel31

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
