9 RV Parks near Newport, Maine
Sep 2016 - $27.00
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

We stayed in B3 over Labor Day. What a wonderful campground setting vs RV park. Level sites, plenty of space,
Great fire pits with grassy spots. I would come again for a week. The golf course was discounted. We had full hook ups with satellite. WIFI came and went but it was better than most RV parks ( we are on month four of our travels). - HayNan

Beautiful peaceful campground next to a golf course. Nice large grassy backin sites. Great value with passport america (2 nite stay midweek). All utilities worked fine. - lyzzards

Found this to be a peaceful setting. We were not in the full hook up sites though, and did not have internet. We were overlooking the golf course and had satellite reception at spot 13. It was nice walking our dog around. We were in the woods, but not heavily so. Our site was level, we had water and electric, fire pit and a table. Plenty of room between sights. They also had a little restaurant where you could get breakfast or lunch for reasonable rates. - dorcol

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

This is a basic, small, RV park. Sites were large, on grass, with a background of trees. There is a pretty pond with some tenting sites and few free range chickens to add to the ambience. Roads are gravel. Park was kept very clean. Beautiful peaceful setting. There is some distant road noise, but not enough to bother us. We would definitely stay there again if we were in the area. - D and M

This is a very clean, well maintained park. The downside is, it's not quiet!! They say in their ad that it's quiet, but the freeway circles back near the park and you hear the trucks gear down all night long! It makes it very hard to sleep. - Roidon621

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

We stayed in a pull thru site F1 full hook up, site was nice and level. Staff escorted to our site, and made sure to show locations of hookups. Was unable to use outdoor rug, for fear of trip hazard due to large roots from tree on the site. Campground was VERY clean, and staff were extremely friendly! I would recommend this campground to anyone looking to stay in the Skowhegan/Canaan area. - SJEAGLES609

If you're looking for a park in the Bar Harbor, Acadia N.P. area that gets you out of all the hustle and bustle of those busy areas, then look no further than the Pumpkin Patch. Quiet, very clean, well manicured park will have you coming back time after time. Their staff is extremely helpful, friendly, and knowledgeable to help you with all your Maine needs. Wide, long gravel sites with plenty of room so your not on top of your neighbor. Not really a "family oriented" park, but there are some lawn games to play and also a pool table. No park is perfect, but the Patch is as close as it gets. - Rick Frazier

Very nice park with exceptionally friendly staff. The lots were large and open, with tall, neatly trimmed trees. It's in a nice area. We traveled to Acadia National Park from here daily with ease. - Jo and Bob

We stayed for a week to get a better price and drove to Bar Harbor . The park is everything it says On their website. The site was gravel and level. Power was good and constant. - Texas Safari

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

We stayed just inside the park entrance and it was fine for an overnight. A reasonable drive off I-95 and back, with grocery shopping available nearby. There was plenty of open green space to walk the dog, always a plus for us. The campground seemed to be mostly full of seasonal or permanent residents. I will probably investigate other options if I pass through the Bangor area in the future. - NC Writer

We stay here every year at the beginning and end of our yearly trips. This place is my favorite still after 12 nice years of camping in New England.. Yes, there are alot better campgrounds, but this place is cozy....quite and friendly, the staff are nice and air planes come in slow low overhead and its a blast to see...shopping just down the road.... - Squappy

Very nice RV Park. Utilities were good, WIFI good, laundry clean, sites level. They also have kayaks/paddleboats available to check out at no cost. There are lots of seasonal campers who mainly occupy on the weekends. The park is nicely landscaped and all sites are kept very clean. Owners are very friendly. My only complaint is the road noise is very loud. We sleep with a fan for white noise, but the noise level was still high. Truckers tend to use their jake brakes often. Would stay here again if in the area. - jacknpeg

A small campground with a mix of transient and seasonal campers. The grounds are very neatly kept. Our site was level and spacious, but a little sunnier that we would like. We have a fairly big rig (40 ft) and wanted 50 amp service so that limited our site selection. The campground is on the Wesserunsett Steam just as it enters the Kennebec River and is very scenic. There is a nice pool and access to the rivers. The owners are friendly and available if you needed anything. - Randy & Sharon

Big rig friendly with level sites. Cable and wi-fi was good. Water pressure was good in camper and showers. One shower room was big and hot water. Washers and dryers were good. No activities in the campground. No dog park. Rained one day and we had flood outside our door. Walmart and a New Balance outlet store were in Skowhegan. - Fulltimersrv

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

Rate is with Good Sam discount. I would not describe this park as Big Rig Friendly as our "pull-thru" site required disconnecting the toad before making sharp turns on a grassy "road", dodging a surface rock, before entering our site. Even with his CDL experience, my driver found it necessary to back-up before pulling into this narrow site. This park was okay, but the necessary unhooking diminished its close to the interstate advantage. - Miss Rumphius-Ohio

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
