10 Parks near Robbinston, Maine

We arrived at Hilltop on Sat. Oct 1.There were only about six or so sites for transients and the rest of the 84 sites were taken up by trailers parked there permanently serving as weekend/vacation homes albeit most being well kept with clean, tidy surroundings. As we were settling in to our site we noticed that people were getting ready to party all around us. People were moving about with drinks in hand in golf carts and on foot with little respect for the privacy of those who were not part of the growing ' celebrations'. The parties grew louder and extremely loud music started in the close by hall until well past quiet hour. The next morning we mentioned the noise to management (owner) and the reply was 'it's the end of the season .....'. We decided to stay another day because most of the 'seasonal' folks were packing up and closing their trailers, mobiles, etc. for the winter and we did get a quiet night on Sunday night. Probably a place to avoid on weekend nights if you want some privacy and quiet, as the few transient sites are basically pull throughs and are in the middle of the seasonal back- in sites..... Not really the type of RV Park where you can tuck into a quiet corner for a night or two and enjoy some privacy. All those potential spots were "seasonally" occupied similar to many other RV Parks we have visited that tend to have a majority of similar occupants. Facilities all worked well but you had to go up to the office to get adequate Wi-Fi. Good cell reception for AT&T. Nice location over looking the coastal islands and waterways near the Canada - US border. - Nabob

We were given a space with a fifth wheel in front of us and in order to able to fit in to our space we had to park a foot off their back bumper. Then as we were hooking up we realized we were in the middle of a Drunken Brawl of a Party! We wish they had of told us that there were hundreds of people coming for a Drunken Party with included lots of very loud music, screaming and yelling and driving little golf carts all around while drinking! Not a person passed our RV without a drink in hand. We would have chosen to stay somewhere else. The "free" Wifi doesn't connect at all. . The lawn needed mowing and the grounds are very old and tired. I don't think we will ever be back. We looked long and hard to find something nice about this place but there is nothing! - Gracii

This is a good campground for both seasonal and temporary stays. The owners are very friendly, which makes up for the "rustic" bathrooms. Many campers are seasonal, but they do have several sites available for shorter stays. We only stayed two nights and were welcomed in with open arms. The water views are minimal, but the campground is well maintained. - wanderfilledlife

Verizon doesn't work in that part of Maine.
This is Oct in Maine. Park is closing for the season. Very few people there.
Host was great! She works part time and she lives in the park.
The laundry building has seen better days, roof is rotten, glass missing in some windows no door. Soaking tub was nasty. Washer and dryer worked great!
Beautiful Lake listened to the loons until I fell asleep. - SubVet SSBN619

Most of the sites are seasonal. The sites for people like us were for the most part to the point that people have to use boards to drive on or place them under the jacks to get level. There is no sewer but they do have a pump out service if needed plus a dump. Water pressure is terrible so we had to use the pump for decent pressure. Our 30 amp electric plug was burned to the point I would not use it so I switched to another connection. Getting to the campground requires travel over a 1/2 mile rocky dirt road which I didn't like. - Mooney 201 Pilot

Out of the way down an old road and then a dirt road that is very bad and I thought I may have to use 4-wheel drive to get in to the campground. Once in, the roads are dirt & dusty but manageable. The pull-through sites are uneven grass and you will need blocks to set up. No sewer but a dump station. Nice people and nice lake once in there but not a destination to go for in the area. Was very clean. - morgan10

This park has a lot of permanent residents but everyone is very friendly. You can get three over the air TV stations from Maine if you are lucky. No wifi. Nice pool and activities on the weekends. You can walk down to the beach and it is just beautiful. Your dog will love it - not too many rules here and a very pleasant place to stay. There are not too many sites with a full hookup 50 amp, but if you can get by with 30 amp for a few days, there are some lovely sites on the water. - mary mcmoo

Nice RV park. Off season, but still open. Nice large pull through sites. Friendly management gave us recommendations on what to do in St. Andrews. We would definitely stay here again. - living large

I am having a hard time deciding how to review this park. It has good points and bad, but over-all, I am really disappointed. Pros - It is located very close to the US/CA border, so was very convenient after a long day of traveling. And, the office staff is very friendly. We did not use the wash-rooms or laundry, but they do look clean at a glance. There is a pool, playground, and Wi-Fi. Cons -Island View has gravel roads, and since it was raining when we arrived, they were very sloshy. Wi-Fi signal is strong, but extremely SLOW. Sites are grass, a bit tight, & ours was not level. Mostly, I just found this park depressing. It impressed me as being a not-so-lovely trailer park. There are lots of long term patrons who seem to have been here for quite a while, and their sites reflect it. I get the impression that these folks are full time residents, not seasonal campers. I generally don't have a problem with long term tenants, but these creeped me out a little. I didn't see an entrance to the ocean view, but I suspect there must be one toward the rear of the park. Adequate for an overnight stay, but certainly not a destination. - User1622

We stayed in a "premium" site, right on Passamaquoddy Bay. This is a convenient stop about 30 minutes from the US border. The waterfront sites are a bit close together, but very nice. You can watch the huge tides come and go. There are quite a few seasonal RVs here, but they seemed very upscale and nice.
Very nice showers and restrooms and very clean. The only drawback is depending on your site, it can be a bit of a walk since there is only one building. - Cape Cod kayaker

We came in hwy 3. This is a terrible road, narrow, pot holes, with winding curves. We would not take our rig on this road again.
This is a great oceanfront park very close to town. Good internet, water, power, and sewer. Lots to do in town. - new 5th wheeler

This is an excellent campground, nicely laid out with a spectacular view of the bay. - Dragoon

This is a parking lot separate from the Calais Motor Inn. The best thing about the site is that it is very close (1 mile??) from the Canadian border so a good place to stop on your way to Atlantic Canada. They have 4 RV sites; 2 of have full hookup and 2 just electric. No bathrooms or showers. Not much for the price - that is, now showers, restrooms, etc. It would be more cost effective to stay in the local Walmart! - Cape Cod kayaker

This "campground" is just a parking lot, but two of the spots have full hookups. Another two have electrical hookups only. This area is next to an adjacent part of the motel, across a small street, just NW of the main motel parking lot. We were in spot #2 which required running our water hose across site #1 to hookup. Electrical hookup required a 50-to-30 dogbone since the panel didn't have a 30-amp plug that we were familiar with. In site #2, the sewer was in the middle, but since we have a short RV, it was perfect... others might have a long run to connect it. The site was perfectly level, all asphalt. Motel personnel were all very nice and helpful; we needed to leave the RV there for several days (not hooked up) and they didn't mind. There is a men's and women's restroom by the motel restaurant, no showers. There was a bit of traffic noise but not bad. The motel has a large pool, but we didn't ask about access. The restaurant on-site looked popular but we didn't try it. All ratings are based on what it is -- a full hookup parking space -- and not comparing it to a typical campground. Great spot for an overnight and close to a Walmart and a few other stores, and a few restaurants. - RobtL

They tell you what it is, and it is what it is. There are 5 or 6 sites in a parking lot. Site 1 and 2 are full hookups, although site 2 has the hookup to water that is located in site 1. 50 amp is available in site 1 and 2. The other sites are just electric: no water, no sewer. There is a pool at the motor inn, but it was closed. I think it would be available to RV users. No bathrooms or showers. It is convenient for an overnight stop after crossing the border and to the grocery store, Wal-Mart, and downtown. Great place to stop and re-provision after Canada. The motor inn staff were friendly and helpful. We would use this place again. - Florida Bob

No one was in the office when we arrived, we had to call a number on the door and wait for service. We were placed on a tiny lot, among large seasonal lots. Grounds are unkept - little mowing done, playground is old and unmaintained, beach is grown in with weeds, the whole place is generally untidy and dated. Little staff available for help, and those working offer help with an unfriendly attitude. If you're looking for a Griswold family vacation - look no further. Very disappointing, the pictures displayed on the website are deceiving. We did find the neighbors friendly, and the little canteen did offer ice cream and other treats. Overall - a disappointing stay. We won't be back! - Mrs E

We had tried calling this campground ahead for reservations, there was a voice mail answering machine stating: "No reservations were needed for the upcoming weekend." We left a message stating our needs and never received a return call. When we arrived at the campground the office was open but there was no one at the office. After waiting around a bit we noticed a phone # on the front door with instructions to call this # if no one is in office. We called the number, it went to a message machine. Left a message stating we were at the front office/gate. Waited some 10 minutes or so, then decided to drive around to look for a site. While doing so a man in a ATV came up and was a bit rude asking what we were doing and why we didn't call the # on the door. When we said we did, he took his phone out of his pocket, waived it around and said, "You didn't call me." We showed him the dialed # on our cell phone. The guy affirmed that it was the correct # but something must be wrong with our phone! A Bit Rude if you ask me. If it hadn't been late we would have left. Was just an overnight stop. - Bob & Linda

This is camping heaven for those that enjoy private sites, beautiful scenery, and true camping. No hookups means you are back to basics or must rely on being self-contained. Not for those that like camping resorts and planned activities. Hiking trails are available, relaxing by the shore is the highlight. Very nice tent sites available as well. - Pickycamper

We stayed here for 15 days in a waterfront site with a nice view of the tidal basin. We really enjoyed our stay at this very quiet pretty park. The CG is well maintained, grass is cut and the gravel roads are in good condition. We would rate this CG an 8 if the sites were level and easier to get large rigs in and out of the sites. Having said that, there are a few large rig sites which have water views and many others that are surrounded by trees. There are also many tent sites or sites for small campers which have good water views. Almost all sites are well separated from the adjacent sites and provide good privacy. Be aware that there is: no water at camp sites, no elect and no sewer. No flush toilets. There is one central shower facility with good hot water. Showers are 25 cents for 5 minutes on the honor system. I would recommend this CG to anyone wanting a nice quiet pretty camping experience. - A-S_Travels

Some great tent sites and there are some RV sites on the Bay. There is no electricity and most of the camping areas have pit toilets and water but the entrance of the campground has a nice washroom with showers. Great for hikes and for clamming when the biggest tides of the Bay of Fundy go out! - gsnakehill

The waterfront sites have lovely scenery of the Passamaquoddy Bay and Canadian islands Deer and Campobello. We parked "wrong way" to the utilities to get the best view. Extreme leveling with several boards put the front wheels in the air. Wifi was poor and Verizon unavailable except for a Canadian signal available to users of the company's international service. The Old Sow whirlpool (ask at the office for a map) can be seen a couple hours before high tide from rocks a short hike away. It was barely discernible the day we looked but several small "piglets" twirled sticks and seaweed around for a minutes at a time. The campground's onsite restaurant closes after Labor Day. - Mtmoi

Eastport is the eastern most point in the continental USA. Site offered had blocked view of the ocean sound. Still had some view off to the side of the Class A who was right on the sound. Laundry was iffy; dryers didn't work very well. 30 minutes of free WI-FI then pay as you go. Not much to do in the small town, nice bakery and a $69 boat ride to see the whirlpool. - Bburgbrewer

We stayed here before and just loved it, but you can't go home again. Last time we were here it was September and there were not many people in the park, so we got a great site on the waterfront. This time the park was packed and the sites are very close together. The only thing we asked for when we made our reservation was that we face the water and we did not. We went to the office and asked to be moved, but there really wasn't anywhere to move - the park was jammed. But the staff is nice, they have a restaurant that is open on Saturdays and they have fish frys on the weekend. It is very convenient to go to Eastport. I probably would not stay here again just because the sites are so close together, but is the only option in the area. They say they have wifi, but is impossible to use - we even went up the office and it was so slow we ended up going to the library to connect. - mary mcmoo

I requested an available site that I liked but they said our rig would not fit. Attendant was very talkative. Instead we were crammed between two big rigs in a tiny site while the site I requested was much larger and sat empty.
Picnic table was down an embankment, inconvenient.
The internet was hopeless and the staff and owners blamed us and our new computers. We were subjected to being belittled. We only could get connected by sitting next to the building freezing on a cold windy day. They need better internet service. Not a pleasant experience. - twotimes

The only reason we didn't give a 10 was 1) no sewer hookups and 2) on site 18 the best way to park is facing Johnson Bay, but the hook-ups were set up for facing out, so I had to pull close to the right side of the site as possible so my 36 ft power cord would reach. Luckily my neighbor on the left had a Y for the water connection, and he graciously let me use it instead of trying to get my hose under the coach to the other side. That said, there was a honey wagon service for $10.00 or you could use it yourself without cost. As for the reason I gave a 9. This is a great little campground. The views out our front window were spectacular, and the camp hosts were terrific. - therealSimpsons

The sites are very close together and level. Ask for site 12, 12 A or 12 B; they are the best. The power (30 amp) was steady. The view of the bay is outstanding. - Texas Safari

Nice Provincial Park. The campground is pretty and nicely located to explore the island. We reserved a site in the large open area, where the sites are large and big rig friendly. Sites in other parts of the park, that are best for shorter in height RVs, are even more beautiful (i.e., they are inside the mature forest). The park staff was very nice and friendly.
We walked to beautiful views of the Bay of Fundy, beach and Roosevelt Cottage from the campground. The walking trail to the Roosevelt Cottage was through a wonderful mature forest.
Given our taller height, we needed to zigzag around some tree branches on the island, getting to the park and within the park, but it was doable. The park nicely trimmed the trees in the dump station area, which allowed us to use the dump station when we departed. - 2FullTimersinaFifth

Rate after currency exchange, reservation fee, and 10% senior discount was $23 per night for a seven night stay. Site was a very large grass site with 30amp electric. Our site was located in a large open field with no trees. Other electric sites are available in a forest-like area with narrow roads and low branches. A dump station and water spigots were available in the park. The campground was very quiet at night and the majority of sites were unoccupied. There was no park WiFi and no Verizon cell/MiFi reception in the park. We have Verizon's Travelpass that provides coverage in Canada for $2/day, but coverage was spotty on the island. The visitor center provides free WiFi access and is about 3 miles from the park. DishTV satellite reception was good for #119 and #110 but not #129; therefore, not all channels were available. We would stay here again. - Dave51

A Must stay ! History, scenery, local flavor and a favorable exchange rate (rate listed in US $) make this a Fabulous opportunity in an Excellent campground. No water, sewer or WiFi at any NB provincial parks but good 30a elec. I arrived via the ferry from Deer Island which was a bit pricey with a trailer and then left via bridge back into Maine (free). You could just come and go via bridge but the only way to discover more of New Brunswick is to take the ferry or go all the way around to Calais to enter Canada. This "one way" aspect of visiting this island may be why it had so few visitors in the campground, but the National Park and local island people make it a "must visit" for me ! NO FUEL or real Grocery on the island so plan ahead. I chose a site in the woods, which could be a little tight for maneuvering and level but it worked for me and my 33' 5th wheel. There is also a large open field which would be big rig friendly. Good laundry ($1.50C wash $1.25C dry), excellent clean restrooms and showers, a large pavilion with wood stove and open fire cooking available for groups, mosquitoes (bring your spray), large children's play area and a must visit National Park ! 9 hole golf course 3 min. away, local beach at Friar's Head, fish markets and lots of local flavor. Highly recommend a visit and I would certainly stay again. - SailorGolf
