Spent 3 nights at this resort. It is an older campground off route 90 in Rockport. Had a pull thru spot. Fairly level. Lots of trees. Nice pool. Rest rooms re very old. However they were clean. No cable tv, got 4 channels over the air. This campground is convenient to the area. It is off route 1 so it is much quieter. I would certainly stay again. We camped at Camden Hills RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Let me first state you get what you pay for so take that in consideration. Staff is very friendly and eager to help you. 50amp✔ We had site 35 no cable TV , but there was a cable. Upon entering the driveway and seeing a like new RV RESORT SIGN was encouraging. Arriving is 2 different things. One could stretch it and go as far as saying the sign is,= a MISREPRESENTATION. Little to no stone anywhere, drive to site 35 was riddled with potholes, rocks sticking up, mudholes. Site was grass covered, narrow, level where camper sat, but once steps were down it had slope which added a problem since my wife is handicapped with balance issues. Pool is nice but never saw anyone in it. Looks like this campground was frozen in time from the 70's and no one put any money in it. Stone is cheap. A nice coating on the roads and sites adds curb appeal. They nickle and dime you to death. WiFi is extra. Using the dump station is $10 and booking reservation fee $2. The bath houses were clean, however they more deserve the term 'shack', shower stalls are extremely small, water pressure low, stalls may be clean but are stained. I'm NOT sure if any 2 picnic tables matched throughout the camp, but ours was old didn't feel so sturdy. The wood has succumbed to the elements and should be replaced. We camped at Camden Hills RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

When coming to Maine one usually comes for Lobster. Best value is Mcloons lobster shack 315 Island Rd, South Thomaston, ME 04858 The boat came in , I saw the lobsters go from boat to pier to broiler! Can't get any fresher!! *** 2 lobster dinner =$26.95 Best value around. Stay away from Claws on rt 1, over rated, very expensive, food is ok, but twice as much as Mcloons.

New owners took this campground over in 2017. It's a very nice wooded campground yet open spaces. The people checking you in are super friendly and very accommodating. Take you to your site,etc. they also own the other campground on Route 1. This is much quieter and yet still close to the Camden area. Highly recommend.

Park was okay; site level and everything worked. In trees and the cable is very limited, satellite not possible in most sites. Quiet. Friendly hosts. If I stay in the area again I will try to get in Camden HIlls State Park. Sites are spacious and some are satellite friendly. We camped at Camden Hills RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We enjoyed our stay at Camden Hills very much. It's a nice, neat and clean park. There was plenty of room between our RV and the one on the utility side and just a little less room on the social side. I didn't feel closed in. Our site was grassy without areas of dirt or mud. Utilities were very close to the woods (got chigger bites setting up and getting our bikes off the back of the RV). We didn't use cable even though it was available. We couldn't get satellite due to too many trees (nice and shady). Cell service (Verizon) was good so we hot spotted because there wasn't Wifi. It was quiet and comfortable but lacked some of what you'd expect for $45 per night. The park is within a couple miles of Rockport and Camden. Beautiful ports! The epitome of Maine!

Nicely shaded. Easy access. Helpful staff. Bathrooms clean, but "shack like". Shower head perfect for a 4 ft 8 inch person. If you use the laundry get detergent at front desk first. Machine (washer and dryer) usage price a bit extreme at $2.50. My experience has been $1.50. Overall, it's a nice place conveniently located. We camped at Camden Hills RV Resort in a Truck Camper.

Staff was helpful in making arrival date changes with no penalty. Unfortunately, cable TV very poor in sites to rear of park, and no OTA signal available, also not satellite TV friendly. Staffer was able to move us to a site near the office, cable TV much better. No recreation in park, but within 15 minutes of Rockport and Camden waterfront. Quiet park, rundown, but location is decent. Easy in and out. We camped at Camden Hills RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Camden is great for shopping, wonderful arts and Maine made crafts. Scenic Harbor and water tours, Rockport even more scenic, great kayaking. Try McLoons Lobster Pound in South Thomaston! Fantastic, and dog friendly. BYOB

As others have stated, this is not a resort. Even with the park 75% full, it was very quiet. Very few children. I count 3 at one seasonal site and never saw any others. The pool looks nice, but I never saw anyone in it. Since the prior reviews, they have upgraded the electricity and have a number of 50 amp sites. The water lines look new and the pressure and flow were good. My site was about 52 feet deep and 40 feet wide with some gravel.

There were 4 in our group and when we made reservations last year we requested sites together. That did not happen.

The laundry appears to have new machines and was very clean. The cable tv does have the network stations in HD and a few other stations. No CNN, HLN, CNBC, The Weather Channel, etc. Satellite service is not available on most or maybe all sites due to the trees. Same for AT&T cell phone service. Verizon was ok. Verizon 4G data card service was only 2.5 Mbps. The free wifi was about .5 Mbps and very slow to get connected to.

As for service:

No one on call after the office closes. One person was on the old electric service at his site and he lost power. All he had was an outlet and no pedestal or circuit. He wandered around and found a garage with an open door. Inside he found a bank of circuit breakers.

Forget after hours check in unless you have reservations and an assigned site number and probably a map. One older couple, with a small Motorhome, knocked on my door after dark to see if there was a host somewhere. It was starting to rain and since I knew where several empty pull through sites were, I got them set up on one.

This park is ok for one night or several, as long as you know what you are getting into. But, if you desire to stay near Rockport and Rockland, there does not appear to be much else to pick from. We camped at Camden Hills RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Try The Rockport Diner, just east of the RV Park, at the stop light.

Good home cooked food. Less expensive than places downtown.

For a quick route to Rockland, turn south at this light.

Its a stretch to call this an RV Resort. The sites were clean, the campground was well maintained and the teenager in the office when we checked in was cheerful and helpful. Those were the good points. The bad news became obvious the moment we checked in. We reserved a full week for 2 adjacent sites a year in advance and paid in full. Prior to our arrival, one of our sites was reassigned as a seasonal site and we were assigned another non-adjacent site without notification. The move was to a campsite that was not appropriate for the motor home in our party. The teenager in the office was not authorized to make site reassignments but gave us a corporate number to phone which we did. We ended up with a more appropriate site but still not adjacent. Next problem was no camp store to speak of. There was a cooler with some ice cream novelties but that was about it. Not exactly what I expect at an 'RV Resort'. I would stay here again for one night, or maybe a weekend, but I would not book a whole week here again. We camped at Camden Hills RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

I have been RVing for many years, this place is a complete disaster. Their electrical drops as low as 93 volts causing the TV to even go off. You cannot use your A/C, hot water is electrically circulated or TV. I book for 2 nights, could only stay one due to the service, but NO refund, just excuses. Also the septic system leaches sewer liquid onto the ground surface, what an odor. An 18 year old high school girl running the front desk was apologetic but that is all. What a disappointment this place was. Calling it an RV resort is truly a joke. Beware! We camped at Camden Hills RV Resort in a Motorhome.

The hot tub was a small. The pool was nice but was not heated. The sites were nice and shaded. There were not many people there. Good areas for dog walking. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Camden Hills RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Wow and I mean wow. This place deserves an A for marketing and F for actual product. We made a reservation through the corporate website based upon the pictures and even referenced reviews from this website. Folks this is not a good RV park. They are way overpriced, we found a coupon on their website to get our cheap rate, and their spots are simply dirt/ wild grass spaces with multiple roots and poor entrance/ exit clearance. Maybe all the parks in Maine are this bad hence the glowing reviews, but come on. I agree with one of the reviews below that this place should not call itself a resort. We went to use their jacuzzi and the water was milky with chunks of stuff floating; time to drain and disinfect. The staff responded that they would turn it on for a few hours to clean it out. Verizon signal is great and easy access to Rockland and Camden. We camped at Camden Hills RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice, quiet campground. We arrived the afternoon of the last day of Lobster Fest and it was fairly full, but quiet. No children that I saw and well behaved pets. The next day half the campers left and it seemed to be mostly seasonal and us the rest of the time. First site uneven due to tree roots and lack of gravel but we were changed to another that was fine, except all the sites could use fresh gravel. This one pooled water in a rain, but drained fairly quickly. Nice pool and rec hall. Showers need a little updating, but adequate. Staff very friendly and helpful.

Rate reflects weekly rate. Very nice, quiet campground. Level site, good power and cable TV. Very friendly staff. Highlight was a visit by a K9 Game Warden who came with her dog and gave a very informative talk about how to train a search and rescue dog. We camped at Camden Hills RV Resort in a Motorhome.
