Nice large RV campground on state Hwy 1 with easy access and no traffic noise. Paved main and gravel site roads. Park is mostly wooded with only a few open sites. Almost all of the sites are park models and seasonals, with only a few available for travelers. Pull-through and back-in sites are wide, long and level with table, fire rings. All sites have 30 & 50 amp and sewer. Weak and slow Wi-Fi signal at sites. No satellite signal, good Verizon cell, 4G signals, and good cable. The pools, playground, rec center, store and scheduled activities are all by the park models section at the opposite end of park from travelers' sites. At the back of the park there is direct access to a Rail to Trail path that extends several miles to the beach. Park well maintained and staff friendly and helpful. Very nice and would stay there again. Cost is with a Good Sam during peak season. We camped at Silver Springs Campground and Cottages in a Fifth Wheel.

This large park is occupied mostly by permanent or seasonal visitors, but provided a very adequate overnight stop. The gravel interior roads lead to generously sized gravel/grass sites. Basic utilities are good, cable is very good, Wi-Fi was poor at our site. AT&T phone and data service is available in the area. The price reflects the Passport America discount.

We can hardly believe that we stayed in the same place as most of the other reviewers. This is one of the worst excuses for a campground that we have ever been in. Most of the sites have Park Models in very poor condition. The grounds are poorly maintained and the roads are disgraceful. The Wi-Fi was not consistent and the signal was generally weak. Our pull-through site was far from level. The Passport America rate was only $24.00, but they would have to pay me a lot more than that to stay here again. We camped at Silver Springs Campground and Cottages in a Motorhome.

We found this park off I-95 exit 36 onto I-195 and then exit 2B onto highway 1 to the park. We had our choice of transient sites. Gravel roads and gravel back-in sites are in this park. Our 36' motor home and toad fit in our back-in site with no problems after disconnecting. It's true there are a lot of permanent park models, but these are very well maintained and a lot of them were not occupied due to the late time of the year. There were some pot holes in the road, but nothing that couldn't be managed. Good strong signals on Wi-Fi with fair speed, but I connected to the Silver Springs router. I couldn't get on the internet through the Silver Springs router 3 and the Silver Springs router 5. Google maps display would "paint" the computer screen a section at a time. Water pressure was 40 PSI and our SurgeGuard had no faults indicated. Our sewer drain was not threaded although some were. Cable TV was excellent. Lobster and clams are abundant in many nearby stores. $4 for one pound and they will steam a live soft shell lobster for you while you wait. Portland, ME and L.L.Bean at Freeport, ME are easy short drives from here. Staff was friendly, helpful and accommodating. We would stay here again.

Rate reflects Passport America. They honored the PA rate for multiple nights, which was nice. First, I don't believe they have 140 "transient" sites; most of the sites were full time park models. All of them seem nice, well kept and the folks we met were welcoming and helpful. The transient sites were mixed in among the permanent ones and you had choice of shade or sun. W/S/E and cable on all sites. Camp store adequate and owners very helpful. There is a big RV dealership next door if you have rig issues. Not much road noise heard and wildlife present in form of birds, chipmunks. We found lobster for $5/lb close by--cook at the campsite. Other places a bit more but will steam for you. Clams and other fresh seafood also reasonable. One issue to note, and it is on their website: showers are pay--25 cents for 3 minutes. (Haven't seen that in over 35 years!) Water was plentiful and hot and I think I got 4-5 minutes on first quarter. No big deal, but read the directions carefully or load several quarters ahead of time if you are concerned. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Silver Springs Campground and Cottages in a Motorhome.

Campground has a lot of different kind of sites: RVs, park models, and trailers. Some of the roads are narrow, but we managed with no problem. Our friends didn't fare so well and scraped a bay door on a large rock near an intersection. The staff are friendly and helpful, and we would stay here again. We enjoyed adjoining large sites (one pull through) and an evening campfire. We'd stay here again. We camped at Silver Springs Campground and Cottages in a Motorhome.

Rate reflects Passport America price of stay one/get one free. We stayed here only a two nights on our way south from Acadia. Very well kept facility, very friendly and helpful staff. Mostly seasonals here but nicely kept. We had a nice pull through site on a corner that was in good repair and had nice picnic table and fire ring. Would stay again and spend some more time exploring the area. We camped at Silver Springs Campground and Cottages in a Motorhome.

Terrific value! Passport rate $22. This is a super facility located near prime activities for recreation, eating lobstah and other gorrgeous Maine seafood, sightseeing, and having a great time. Complete full-services including cable. Believe great venue for family as there are great cabins also for non-RVers. Sites are very nice and close to level as possible for crushed rock. We camped during heavy rain storm coming from west and also days before hurricane irene was due to hit NC. Minor standing water on park roads. Sites were routinely dry and comfortable. Very impressed and pleased. We definitely will return. We camped at Silver Springs Campground and Cottages in a Motorhome.

Not a large park but clean and well cared for. Friendly staff, not much of a store but next to a RV dealer and close to shopping. Staff was always around cleaning restrooms and empty sites. Mostly seasonal sites but all were friendly, we had site 53 a pull thru which was a good site, but they had tents on both sides of us and those were full hook up sites, thats why an 8 rating. Shuttle to beach every hour, clean pools and easy in and out, gated entry. We camped at Silver Springs Campground and Cottages in a Motorhome.

90% of CG is full season residents, friendly. We had pull through site at back of CG. Sandy so it tracked into RV. Rooftop TV dish did not work but CG has very good cable with lots of channels. Wi-Fi was very slow. Our Sprint cell & Internet worked OK. Passport America rate. We camped at Silver Springs Campground and Cottages in a Fifth Wheel.

Silver Springs has camping sites as well as modern cabins. The pool looked great. Interior gravel roads are good but keep an eye open for the speed bumps; they are humdingers! The sites are good size and attractive with tall trees providing shade. All sites are full-hookup including cable. We paid $26. with our PA discount. The bathhouse was just okay; some of the doors were missing latches. They do have a laundry room, but the machines are small for the $2. charge. The owner was very friendly and helpful giving us good suggestions for where the locals go for lobster. We enjoyed a quiet night and would camp here again. We camped at Silver Springs Campground and Cottages in a Travel Trailer.

Price reflects Passport America membership. This park is near FunTown, Old Orchard, and many Maine beaches. The owners and staff are very friendly and accommodating. The campground is nicely kept, it has 2 pools, a rec hall, and nice playground for the kids. There are many seasonals and Park Models, but all are kept in great shape and and the folks are very friendly. Anytime we are in the area we WILL stay here. It's a great place.

We traveled across the country from Washington State and this was, by far our favorite spot. The owners were the best: they were friendly, helpful and provided a wealth of information on the area. They go the extra mile to make your experience a great one. The campground is very well maintained and an ideal base for exploring southern Maine. We planned on staying two nights and ended up staying ten! We camped at Silver Springs Campground and Cottages in a Motorhome.

One of the nicest campgrounds around. Most sites are very level, and many back up to a woodsy area. Mosquitos can be bad, but they have been everywhere we have gone in Maine. Best Wi-Fi ever: great signal, even when they were fairly busy. Host was very friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay here again! (Rate based on CampClub USA rate.)
