We used this as an overnight stop on our way north. This is our 2nd time here and it was great. Helpful, friendly staff, adequately sized sites and easy to negotiate with out 37' motorhome and toad. Convenient to I-95 and I-295. Excellent Verizon voice and data signals. Would stop again. - bgbassman

This is a really nice, clean KOA. We loved the trees at every site and the wooded feel. Our 50 amp, FHU, pull-thru site was gravel and level. We had a wood patio/deck with a nice grill. WiFi was very good - no cable, but we were able to get several OTA channels. Friendly, efficient check-in with helpful staff. Easy on/off of I-295. We stayed 2 nights while passing through and wouldn't hesitate to stay again if in the area. - Gayle E.

Stayed with 40' MH with 4 other rigs for 3 nights...big pull thru sites, but outside seating area quite small, did have table and fire pit. We all had some difficulty getting level, as did others that we met. Good free Wifi. We did get a Maine resident discount but as with all KOA campgrounds, we found the price high.
In a great area, close to Augusta and Brunswick. - Mainiac

Just a relaxing campground that we will return to when we're in this area again. Full hookups. Shaded on one side of the campground. Sweeping view from your campsite. Newspaper delivery to campsite a luxury . - Airstream 25

Beautiful setting. The sites are tiered and hard to pull out of. Had to back up plus it rained so it was very muddy. The women running the campground are awesome. We "heard" that they are revamping their sites to be more accommodating. The pictures on their web page are a tad deceiving. But still awesome. - Ohioan

This was possibly the most beautiful campsite we have ever had. It was huge with a wide open view of the tidal river. Lots of birds in the patches of trees and bushes left standing between sites. This campground is quiet (we were the only people there for most of our stay). Nearly all the sites are large and grassy. You would likely have problems pulling out if it had rained a lot. There is not much to do and pre-teens and teens would likely be bored but it would be fine with small children. We plan on returning. - sbradley

$15 rate represents a $450 monthly rate plus electric. We intended to stay a month, ending up staying for over two. This is a little slice of heaven folks, the wife and I have RV'd over 30 years and this is one of nicest campgrounds and nicest people you will ever meet. The campground is for adults only, no frills for kids which is exactly what we look for. Very clean campground, beautiful landscaping, right on the Kennebec River. I caught several small mouth bass at the dock, sturgeon can be seen jumping out of the river, eagles soaring, very pristine setting. The owners are wonderful people, host regular Friday night dinners, and do a wonderful job of making you feel like this is home. The campground is centrally located, easy enough to get to the coast or to the mountains on day trips. Augusta is 10 minutes to the north, plenty to see. We will definitely return to this park. - JamBus

Rate is weekly rate plus tax. We are staying here for 2 weeks. The park is quiet and seems quite secure. Each vehicle gets a remote to operate the gated entrance. Most of the sites are seasonal but there are a couple sites available. Everybody we have met is quite friendly. Sat at the river yesterday and watched several eagles fishing. We are about 50 feet from railroad tracks but have not seen any train since we got here 5 days ago. Paved rail/trail is beside the tracks. Owner is very friendly and helpful. If space is available here when we are in the area we will stay here again. - User1984

We found this campground thru Passport America and the rate reflects their discount. The owner added 3 new back in sites this year, the other 11 sites are taken by seasonal campers. Our site (13) is wooded, full shade, with a gravel drive and pad. It is a short walk past the other sites to the Kennebec river and marina. This is a great stop for folks traveling to or from Canada or someone with a boat that is lucky enough to get a slip in the marina. - SunnyTravelers

Very nice owner's and host staff, restaurant and small supply store. Beautiful lake access with a dock for boats and visiting boats. Mostly outdated playground for kids but the lake is the main draw with a jump float and nice clean beach. Steady 30a power and decent pricing with flexible staff. We extended our stay by a half day and they charged me only $6. Now I have to be honest and list the bad - the access road is terrible and nearly 3/4 of a mile long with steep rises and falls, some overhanging tree limbs and rutted areas. Also, the sites are tight tight tight. This is NOT a place for anyone towing something longer then a 34' trailer of any type. The roads are narrow and people park their cars into the the road, I am still surprised (thanks to my wife spotting objects) that I didn't tear the roof or take out a corner marker. - mwebber78

NOTE: GPS does not recognize Norris Point Road. The correct address is Norris Hill Road which ends at the campground. Small, mostly seasonal campground. Sites can not be booked for less than 7 days until after Memorial Day. Minimal activities: crafts, bingo, weekend horseshoe tournament. The Saturday night we stayed they had a great band. Non seasonal sites are grassy with very little shade. Small store with basics. 6 miles to get to any services. Too many seasonals tear around on golf carts for such a small campground. Lake is beautiful and quite warm for Maine. We probably won't go back. - Everyboysmomma

Shore Hills Campground had about 150 sites, all of which are dirt/gravel. Most of the roads are the same so if it rains, some parts can get pretty muddy. I think that we were in a newer loop, as the sites were a little bigger, and some had wood deck patios next to the parking pads. They have about 20 pull through sites in the loop that are advertised as "No rig too big", and they are about 100' long. We had a back in site with patio and fire pit. There is also a picnic table on the deck. Not all sites are full hook up though, some closer to the water are W&E only. We paid $53 a night for our site, and even though we stayed for a week, there was no break on the daily fee. One notable issue though, they do not accept any electronic payments. Cash or check only. The utilities at the sites worked well and were placed conveniently. The restroom facilities though older were clean. However they are NOT handicapped accessible. Raised entry's at the doors and narrow doors would be difficult to navigate. Their showers are also pay showers, like .50 for three minutes. They offered WiFi, but our Verizon air card worked OK. They did have a nice big dog yard for off leash dogs. There is a lake at the campground, but the older wooded sites are on quite an incline and may be difficult to navigate if you have any mobility issues. The nice part about this campground is that we were only a few miles from Boothbay proper and we made several trips in to various shops, stores, and restaurants. I would stay at this campground again. - SargeW

Camped in site 114 in the open field. It was a pull through site within 1.5 in of being level side to side. It had full hookups including cable and wifi. Wifi was easy to connect and reasonably fast. Lots of cable channels inclung all major networks.
Sit had an above ground patio with picnic table. Could walk right out of trailer to patio.
Has laundromat and 2$ shuttle to downtown. Grocery shopping and drugstore within 5 miles. A little farther to harbor. They are cash only so bring lots. Pet friendly. - Jimstone

Boothbay, Maine - Shore Hills Campground and RV Park - cost for just water and electricity $53. $50 deposit to hold your site and total of 149 sites Reservations recommended in the summer.
This campground was recommended by a number of campers so we thought we would try it for one night. There are full hookups sites with 50 amp/ w & e sites on the waterfront/ tent sites/ 30 amp sites/ cable in some sites/cabin rental sites/ 131 in total. The campground overlooks the water in the Boothbay area. We had a w & e site in the Riverside area which was very nice overlooking the bay. We were here on a Tuesday night in late September so reservations not needed. Bathhouse was very clean with showers ($). Pets are allowed. Deposits are non-refundable. They have a shuttle bus to Boothbay Harbor. There is a camp store which has fire wood, ice, propane, supplies and gifts. Sites are close together depending on the loop you are in. Nice campground with easy checkin and if you want to tour the Boothbay area of Maine with its restaurants and island ferries it is a very convenient stopover. - gsnakehill

This was a convenient one night stopover from New Brunswick Canada to VT. It has a lovely lakeside setting with many seasonals and families with kids. As mentioned by others, the access road to the park is 3/4 mile of unpaved and bumpy travel but once inside the park the roads were fine.
Our unshaded site was part of an interior circular grassy area. None of the shady perimeter sites along the lakefront were available. We had a comfortable distance from our neighbor for our slide-out and the grassy site was level. We had 30 amp service but did not use their water or WiFi. There was a dump station near the exit but none at the site.
There were several families with kids, both in tents and in RVs. It seemed very family oriented.
Management does have lots of rules and signs. At registration we were handed a plastic bag for trash and a list of 28 rules. Signage in the (only?) bathroom was "no washing dishes or pans in sinks" and "washrooms closed between 8a and 9:30a". Perhaps the park's emphasis on kids was the reason for having so many rules. - BP106

Old smaller campground but buildings and landscape in good condition. Staff was very friendly and very helpful. Approximately 60 percent are permanent campers. Campground is right on the lake but most water view sites are taken by permanent campers. They do rent canoes and kayaks and would be a good place for fishing. Campground has some shaded areas and very limited number of 50 amp and a few long pull thru sites. Campground road had horrible potholes on road into camp. They did drag the road before we left which made the road bearable. We camped here because it was a good Sam Park but campground would not give the 10% discount unless you paid in cash. Never experienced this from a Good Sam park. - fulltimehusker

Wonderful park. We would definitely come back here. Small beach for swimming, good pool, games. Lots of things for kids to do. - sharon28

Loves the fresh lobster at $6.95/lb. Had it cooked with corn on the cob,and potatoes. The staff went above & beyond. We had to leave early and did get a refund for the entire amount. The proximity to LL Bean made it very attractive too. The site was fine for a couple of days. - Barbara Smith

We stayed at Meadobrook because it was close to what we were doing. It' location is excellent. We didn't spend much time at the park.All the staff were friendly and they had a place at the park that cooks fresh lobsters every night and you could get hot coffee and breakfast sandwiches in the morning. It's not a real pretty park and our site wasn't very level but it was spacious. We would probably stay there again if we visited the area. - Lefty and Donna Barba
Sep 2015 - $35.00
Stayed here last minute over Labor Day weekend. Great location near beautiful scenery and beaches. Bath is a cute little town. Employees were awesome. Really went above and beyond, especially helping us with technical issues with our pop up. The lobster dinner was amazing, and such a nice treat. Amenities are rustic. But when camping, I don't expect much. Pool was nice and clean. My only complaint is that the sites are small and need to be graded a bit better. Overall great place for the money. - Kirsten Fischer

Reminded me of a state park with full hook ups. The entrance is literally at the end of a (3) mile long gravel road where it dead ends, so don't be alarmed. We had one of about 10 pull throughs close to the entrance and it was ok. Extensively treed, so-so water pressure, no wifi period, iffy cell service. Had to ask the check in people several questions after we checked in and their responses were less than helpful. Most likely won't stay again if in the area. - jc2

Rustic campground in the woods! Great for a weekend, week, or more. Campground is clean and well maintained. Facilities are constantly being improved. Sites are level--no concrete slabs but as I said they are level! Plenty of things to do for everyone! - Mcpowder

If you like a rustic campground, you will love this place. It is very wooded and some of the roads are a bit rough, but very passable. We have always had the same water site each time we have been there, as we and the dog, can go swimming just steps away from the camper door. Larger rigs may have a hard time with some of the corners, so be sure to be aware of that. According to their web site, their new pull-thru sites are now available. - dylansmom

Lake Pemaquid CG is a huge place with many features: beaches, boathouses, a store, playgrounds, etc. It is very family-friendly and there were lots of kids riding around on bikes and playing various games,swimming, eating ice cream, and generally having a good time. The upkeep of the entire facility is so-so. The main paved road is hard to tell from the many dirt roads because the paving is in poor condition. There are lots of trees and some grass but it isn't particularly manicured. The water is lovely and because it isn't the ocean, it is not too cold to swim in.
There are many seasonal campers and they are scattered around in the CG. There are a variety of sites and there's probably one to suit anyone's taste.
There was one area (near us) where a noisy group of seasonal campers seemed to gather every night to have a fire and drink and make way too much noise. This is a beautiful location and probably ideal for families who like outdoor recreation. - virginianola

Very family oriented park. If you don't have kids you won't want to stay here. Free WiFi is only in one building that is locked all the time. Poor AT&T signal. Pool and spa area overrun with kids. - AMM
Aug 2016 - $39.00
This is a huge park as RV parks go. The park is on a lake but the beach is not particularly nice, most campers use the pool for swimming. The playground is very good for the kids by offering unusual activities like a swing bridge and a small zip line. The camp store and snack bar operate well. Since the park is so large, it lacks the personal service that you receive in a smaller park. Weekends are hectic since the park is full, things quiet down some during the week.
The check out is somewhat awkward; you have to stop at the office to receive your deposit on the gate pass and there is no place to pull your rig over to the side. It can cause a bit of a bottle neck.
WI-FI is weak and only available at the rec hall, no cable TV. AT&T is very weak. We were able to obtain satellite TV from our site. We stayed for five days. - Nautilus
Sep 2016 - $38.00
We stayed here four days. We had a pullthru that was very easy to set up. Campground is very rustic with wifi and electric and sewer connections There is no cable tv. Mostly long term residents here, but a beautiful woodsy setting. Would camp here again if ever in the area. - Trucker 2

Only park we could find in Maine that was open for business in November. Very old and rustic which isn't automatically unfavorable to us, but the sites and vegetation were neglected and it was hard to maneuver into the back-in site. The roads are dirt and in poor condition. Utilities were adequate and in good condition. Nightly rate should have included electric (per their website), but the meter was read in order to charge at check-out. Meter ended up being broken and we were made to feel like we were suspected of sabotage.
This could be a nice little campground at a reasonable price (relative to other Maine parks). I suspect the new owners will continue to make improvements but their customer service is starting off on the wrong track. - Full-Time Roamers
