This is a basic, rustic campground. We did not use the bathrooms so we cannot comment. The hookups at the site were fine and they included cable. There is no wifi at this campground. The site was good size but not real level. We left the trailer forward as the front was more level than the back so it worked ok. The biggest draw for this campground is the beach and the lake. It was a nice beach with plenty of sand and real nice clear water. It was very enjoyable the 2 days we used the beach. Will return for the beach along. The seasonal campers seemed friendly but some of the seasonal sites are very cluttered. - Happy Camper X2

If clean, well-maintained bathrooms are important to you, then drive on by this campground. The bathrooms were not only filthy dirty – all week! – but the floors were literally rotting away. On the plus side, our site was spacious, level and nicely wooded. You have a healthy set of trees dividing you from your neighbors. The lakefront beach was nice and we really enjoyed lake swimming. Unfortunately, the pluses end there. The beach is located across the street from the campground. The area around the sewer hook up smelled very bad and had lots and lots of flies hanging around. There are several seasonal sites here that are unsightly and unkempt. Just a few sights down from us, the unit was rotting away and the deck had rotted and fell to the ground. We would NOT stay here again. Note: Do not confuse this campground with “Family AND Friends Campground” about six miles down the road. - Harpers on the Road

Nice campground, very nice staff. Campground has a lot of seasonals. Large wooded sites. The private beach on the lake is very nice. The boys had a great time in the water. - Salem Sullivans

This park is nice; rustic yes, but with a nice pool. We only stayed one night, and it wouldn't be worth it to come back unless we were going to stay for a while. The reviewers who say the interior roads are narrow and rough are not kidding. We have a 36 ft 5th wheel with a bike rack. I gave my length as 40 ft. the roads are so hilly, with "sharp" hills that we dragged the bike rack 3 times, and that was after adjusting the air in the hitch as much as we could. We scraped branches on BOTH sides. The people were very nice, both AT&T and Verizon cell worked, the Wi-fi was on and off. I would recommend this place for smaller rigs, but not for big rigs. - Soos

If you are looking for an "RV Resort" look elsewhere. If you are looking for a rustic campground in the woods, read on. The interior roads are steep, unpaved, tight, and very rough. The trees are trimmed back enough to permit big rigs access with no roof damage. And some sites look like they will accommodate big rigs without too much hassle. Other sites however, will make entry and exit a serious challenge. On the plus side, the Wi-Fi works well and the cable TV is terrific. The trees make for good privacy on most sites. I don't think satellite dishes will work well with all of the trees. There are a fair number of seasonal campers here, but that's really not an issue. We stayed here during the week and the nights were quiet. - DrLewie

Labor Day weekend and the park was fully subscribed. One group (seven Vehicles) was very noisy right up to quiet hours. Roads are gravel and lumpy bumpy; a bit rough for a big rig, but negotiable. Restrooms are old/Showers are "open air" (doors do not do completely to the bottom or top). That equals mosquitoes. Staff is most friendly/helpful with lots of info about local activities. - Nemo

Recently stayed at this park, even though the reviews were not good, as it was the only park that had a site available for us. This park has the possibility of being very nice. However, found that the sites were small, most of the rvs in the park were old, and looked like they should go to the junk yard. Also, one of my neighbors hung a clothes line a hung out their wash to dry. The site was dirty and sandy, which was just about impossible to not track into the coach. Also, there is an airfield nearby, and we were under the path of inbound air traffic of not only commercial jets but large military aircraft. Will never stay here again, even if I have to go to a Walmart. - Joe Crandall

This camp is close to Portland, about 8 miles away, and if you get a lake front site, which we had, there is a nice view, that's the good part.
The sites however are bad for leveling, ours was the worst I've ever seen. Took a couple of 2x6's on one side to get us straight. All the sites look bad,o just dusty dirt, NO grass, and to many trees, so many trees the sun could never get thru and maneuvering on the narrow dusty roads was tough.
What they call a clubhouse is a small dirty shack, and unless you're at the shack, the wifi at our site was terrible. Being on the flight path for Portland airport is not
pleasant either, loud planes overhead every morning and evening. At least half of the camp is rundown seasonal trailers and lots of kids.
They did seem to enjoy swimming in the lake, probably because it is only knee deep everywhere,at least the beach area was clean.
We were there because of the location to Portland. - Gerry9

Nice park West of Portland with a small lake. On the glidepath of the Portland Airport with planes going overhead about every 20 minutes. Not too loud but noticeable. Staff was very friendly and helpful. - Bburgbrewer

Wild Duck is a great campground. Settled in the back of a residential subdivision, it's very quiet with lots of tall trees and plenty of shade. Unfortunately the shade means no grass grows so our site was all dirt. Other than that, it was level, good sized, the hookups were great, and nice picnic table and good firepit, the WiFi was acceptable, and we were able to get 4G (Verizon). Their cable TV provides about 20 channels. Laundry is clean and capable with 3 washers and 4 dryers, and the bathroom/showers were clean. Controlled access to the park was via 4-digit keypad. - RobtL

Next to the Scarborough River and miles of wetlands, Wild Duck Campground is a very popular. We stayed for a week and the park has always full. This is a small park with many seasonal campers so the number of available sites for big rigs is limited. Friendly staff helped guide us into our site. Nice long pull-thru with good utilities. Sites are a little close but livable. Great duck pond near the entrance. Close to Portland, the Kennebunk's, Saco, and other places to visit on a day trip. Speedy reliable Wi-Fi is available for $1 @ day per device. Lots of grass and room to walk the dog near the duck pond and park entrance.
Very quiet! Easy access to town and close by is On the Vine grocery and 2 great places for ice cream. - ScottV

Sardine city: we are jammed up against each site. No activities except canoe rental, no pool, no place to walk the dog. I don't understand the high ratings. There are better choices nearby. Quiet time is 9 until 8 and there are too many rules. - Bburgbrewer

We stayed here on short notice, and we were able to get a small site not far from the main office. Nice little site which fit our 15' camper quite well. There was a lot foot traffic past the site, but it wasn't really a problem. I'd say the only drawback to the campground was the golf cart traffic. They were pretty noisy, and there were a lot of them buzzing around all day.
All in all, Woodland Acres is a nice family campground with lots for the kids to do.
Great facilities and the best camp store I've seen. - 2beagles

This was our first trip to Acres of Wildlife. The above stated rate is the published rate. We stayed for $0 because we participated in the "free cleanup weekend". Basically, they offer you a free weekend in return for some raking and cleanup activities throughout the campground. It turned out to be about 3-4 hours worth of work, the rest was camping/fun time.
The park was nice, and is definitely family oriented. Lots of games/activities for kids (and adults). Sites are decent, but probably look better once more foliage fills in the trees. This place has the very best camp store I have ever seen, a must see! The road is very dry and dusty, and with the constant truck/golf cart traffic it got things pretty dirty. All in all we had a good time. We are definitely planning a return trip later this Summer. - BigNuge

Another great stay at Acres of Wildlife! This campground keeps making some wonderful improvements. Year after year they add sites, clear trees, and are constantly making the sites better and better. This year they also added some tree houses for campers to rent. So if you do not have a camper you can still find a way to have a great time at Acres. We have been coming here for many years and it always great to go back. This weekend was no different. They did a great job with their Halloween weekend by having a Haunted House and such great campers to make the campground something spectacular. There is no doubt that we will return again. - clw_man

We were in big rig section in a 43 foot motorhome with a tow vehicle. Check-in was easy and the directions to our site were excellent. The campground has several swimming pools and lakes. The lakes are catch and release. The campground is close to many excellent restaurants and seafood shops where you will find delicious lobsters and other delicacies. The campground is well maintained and clean and easy to navigate with spacious sites. We will definitely return when in the area.301. - John & Bobbie

Large, busy park on the weekend. Quieter on the weekdays. Full hookups, moderate to large sites. Friendly staff. Golf carts for rent (can't use your own). My 10 year old son loves this place and we will definitely be returning. Trolley shuttles to Old Orchard Beach are a big plus. - Bigdave2165
Aug 2016 - $85.00
HUGE, clean RV resort. There's tons for kids/families to do. Lots of activity. There's an adult pool with a bar & grille. Big rig section has pull-thru sites- no shade. Other sections (also can handle big rigs) are very woodsy and shaded. Our site was 50 amp, FHU, gravel, and level, but pricey. Enough space between sites. Friendly, easy, efficient check-in. WiFi was excellent. Limited cable channels. Trolley to the beach. Would stay here again. - Gayle E.

This a great campground! The campground has spacious and private sites. The staff member that checked us in really did not know specifics about the campground, directions to our site, event tickets to the Blues Festival etc.... The site had 50 or 20 amps. I had to go to the office to get a 50 to 30 amp converter ($20 deposit). The first converter was faulty and needed to get a replacement. The hookups are at the very back of the site and the sewer pipe was about 2 feet off the ground and made for a tricky discharge. The amenities at the campground are excellent and the lake/ beach was enormous! We will be returning to this campground in the future! - clw_man

We camped here with a group of 4 other families. Our request to be located together was met by the campground in one of the loops close to the action. Our 42' motorhome and one of our friends with a 40' 5th. wheel fit nicely on large sites that were pretty level. Sites were mostly gravel/grass with a fire-pit. Hook-ups conveniently located and the 50 Amp service never fluctuated. We had a little problem with overhead branches that was addressed with a bucket truck operator working with us to clear the low branches above. The lake is the big draw here in our opinion. It is a GEM! The campground itself is very woodsy and rustic. There aren't any cement pads to park on or eat on, which we prefer. Bath houses and rest rooms were a bit distant for those with pop up campers. Rent a golf cart early (they go fast) because you will appreciate it and need it if you navigate throughout the grounds. They had a nice Tiki Bar overlooking the lake, with great nachos and cheese and a decent menu. Also enjoyed a talented guitar player/singer who was very entertaining. The kids in our group had plenty to do with the supervision of campground staff. The camp store was stocked with many of the typical camper needs. The marina had many water toys to rent. We opted for speed boat and a pontoon boat with 2 large tubes to pull the kids on. Great fun. We would stay here again. There are a couple of mobile RV repairmen that will come to your site for needed repairs. We had minor issue with our water heater and it was repaired at a very reasonable price. - Dieselpower

We love this place because of the cleanliness and the great people who accommodated us when we were unhappy with our campsite. I think the bathroom/bathhouses could have fans in them as well as some time of bug killer device. We will definitely go here again. - Linda02148

Everything was super clean and in good working order. Pool was perfect, bathroom and shower house were immaculate. Employees were friendly. Campsite was clean and ours was large (some didn't appear as large). There were a lot of trees. - Jennylou

Great campground for the Old Orchard Beach / Portland Area, oh did I mention super clean ! We stayed here for three nights in mid September and would return in a second if visiting the area again. Amazingly clean, well manicured and a super friendly staff. We stayed in site # 47, this is a pull through gravel site with more then enough room for our 33' motorhome and toad. Electric was good along with water, sewer and cable. Great off leash dog park. I did hear a little traffic noise but nothing that would keep you up at night with the windows open. Very short drive to beaches and Portland. - bug512

We just left after spending the entire summer here for the third year in a row. They have made substantial improvements since last year and are planning on more over the winter. One of these improvements will be removing some more trees and possibly more sites that are truly big-rig friendly. We're already making plans to return next year for the season. There may be something better and cheaper, but we aren't willing to risk giving up on something that works perfectly for us. - DavidKSmith
Sep 2016 - $40.00
We had pull through site in a shaded mowed grass area. The site had water and power but only a dump station. I would have rated this higher had it had FHU. Local TV worked well as did the Wi-Fi. The lady who checked us in was very pleasant and helpful. - Trailbuddy
Aug 2015 - $35.00
Relaxing, convenient, friendly campground. Horses, llamas, ducks and goats to entertain and amuse. Far enough from tourist areas to provide peace and quiet but near enough to allow easy access to Portland, Wells, Kennebunkport, and more. Owners are very friendly and helpful and sites are level, spacious and private. One of the best places we stayed on our trip. - Upstater
Aug 2015 - $35.00
What a great campground! Very small and quiet place, quite unlike the busy places in nearby Old Orchard Beach. Sites are large, shady, and grassy. Campground is on the beautiful Saco River. Wifi was nonexistent at our site, but I saw people on laptops sitting on benches outside the office. Extra $4/day if you want to use your AC. - Bonnie66
Sep 2016 - $57.00
This campground has both pros and cons. It is a sandy/dirt place with tons of trees which makes backing in just about any size of RV difficult. Trees are not trimmed and the couple of big RVs that we saw enter our campground loop scraped trees on both the sides and top of their unit. There are only a couple of sites that would accommodate big rigs and we saw people have a great deal of difficulty backing in with their small RVs due to the location of the trees. The bathhouse is old but clean. Water pressure is very high so bring a pressure regulator or risk damage to your RV water system. Verizon cell and hot spot worked fine. Swimming beach was lovely which seemed to be the draw for most people. About half of the campers while we were here were in tents. Campground is not located in the main state park area. The campground does not sell ice or firewood which is odd considering the amount of tent campers. The roads are atrocious coming into the camping sites. This campground is grossly overpriced at $57 per night including reservation and out of state fees. Some of that money should be used to fix the roads. We would not stay here again. - roadking

Wow! It has been awhile since somebody has taken the trouble to review this one. Big CG. Very early season stay. Very few in the park. Only the W/E loop open. Roomy sites, able to easily accommodate larger rigs than they are rated for. That is the good news.
Now for the bad news. CG roads need some serious repaving. There should be no shortage of funds to pay for the road maintenance because the camping rate of $50, out of state camper, is beyond mind boggling. What are the people who set these prices, thinking? - Veebyes

This is a great family park located on Sebago Lake with most camping a short walk to the lake. Lots of activities around lake including bicycling, beach activities, and especially boating. Not a lot of privacy and very noisy with children of all ages running around having fun. As with most New England State parks...a distant cousin as compared to those in the south or western part of USA. Expensive for what you get at $30 (w/e) up to June 30, and $38 July and August. One of only two campgrounds in Maine with water and electric. Recommend it for young families. - David R
