We enjoyed this park a lot. We had a spacious pull-through site that was easy to get in and out of. We did not experience any of the difficulty with tight fits or difficulty getting in that other reviewers mentioned. The park was crowded, but very quiet at night. They had lots of activities for children, but they were focused in the areas near the office. There is a nice ice cream bar and game room with video games. We found other campers there to be very friendly during our three days there. The campground was neat and clean, and staff were very friendly. They loaned us a narrated CD to use for our visit to Gettysburg National Battlefield. The location is good for sightseeing in the area, and the park is very easy to get to. We would definitely camp here again, and may do that next year in order to see more Civil War monuments and battlefields. I got the impression the owners were very proud of their campground and took pride in keeping it clean, friendly and fun.

The best thing about this campground is its website. The campground does sit on top of a beautiful mountain with a fantastic view. There is a nice swimming pool and playground, and lots of activities for families, so a family with children might love this campground. However, the view ends as soon as you leave the parking lot. The campsites are in an open field, backing up against some woods. It's all gravel and not much grass in the sites. There was no real distinction between sites except for the utility posts. All the views are for the vast number of seasonals in park models, and some of these are very cheesy in their excessive lawn ornaments and lighting. We did love the baby goats and baby sheep and miniature ponies they have. They were very cute. But as far as campsites go, this was very mediocre and not worth the trouble of getting to, down a long, curvy road and then up a very steep and windy hill. We would not stay here again.

Loved this campground. All the sites are situated around a little lake with a running fountain in the middle. The campground is immaculate. Our hookups were so conveniently placed that we hardly had to uncoil our water hose or electrical cord. The cable TV is good, Wi-Fi was very reliable and fast. The owners were very friendly. This is a very quiet and peaceful campground with no road noise at all. It would not have a lot of activity for children and is definitely not a resort campground, which I liked. Do not let the roads leading to the campground upset you. It is worth the windy and hilly road that leads you into it. And once you arrive you are very pleasantly surprised. This is a little gem that is convenient to Bennington, which is about a 10 minute drive.

This is a nice park with big, pull-through sites available in shady area. There is no 50-amp, but it was fine, as it was relatively cool outside. There was also no sewer, but unlike other reviews here, we have not seen a honey wagon in two days. We were here over a weekend, so maybe they don't do the service on weekends, though the owner told us he would be around at least every other day. There is a large agility course/dog run on the hill above the campground, and there was an agility competition over the weekend. Even with this, it was a pretty quiet campground. Main issue for us was the intermittent wi-fi. The connection could often not be made at all with the internet, and we used our own hotspot for the majority of our time here. I would stay here again for the location, and there are many covered bridges in this area to see, as well as farmers markets and scenic drives.

This park is conveniently located near Lake Sunapee and Cornish, Newport, Claremont. It has an older and somewhat primitive appearance, but all utilities worked well. It's near the river and woods on another side, and is away from town. The Wi-Fi was very reliable. Though there is no cable TV, we were able to receive several digital stations with antenna up. The 50 amp sites where we were, were arranged rather unusually, alternating between nose in and back in, so that front doors of adjacent rigs would be facing one another. There was nothing wrong with this, just not something we've seen. The staff was very helpful. Would stay here again. Note that Google maps will tell you to turn onto Pollards Mill Road or Old Goshen Road. Neither of these is correct. The campground is just past Pollards Mill Road.

We were very disappointed with this park. Though the view is spectacular, the waterfront sites are oddly arranged. The staff at the office was not helpful. The cable works fine, restaurant was mediocre, but the Wi-Fi is not good at all. You get half-hour per day free, but can spend all that time trying to connect. Other reviewers have commented on the cell phone problems, but this is not the campground's fault. The laundry was small and dank. The facilities look very old and the sites could be improved with just a little leveling and attention. Everything just looks old. We would not stay here again, as there are other campgrounds in the area that also overlook the Bay of Fundy.

This is a lovely campground that feels like a natural setting. Campsites are among the trees so that you feel as if you have your own private spot in the forest. Site sizes are generous and all sites are separated by trees on both sides so that you don't see your neighbors. There are lots of trash cans and recycle cans throughout the campground. The Wi-Fi works incredibly well. One of the best we've found in six weeks of continuous camping. The staff is very friendly and helpful and guided us to our site, showed us the utility hook-ups, etc. It seems to get a little more crowded on the weekend, but still very quiet overall. This is a great place if you want to be in a secluded setting and enjoy peace and quiet, yet be close to towns, restaurants and attractions. Lots of covered bridges in this area, if that is an interest. We would definitely stay here again and again.

Pretty park with good location convenient to Rockport, Rockland, Camden and Lincolnville Beach. The big rigs are put in an upper area that is right off the highway, so there is always highway noise. The facilities are nice, and staff were very helpful. Their cable TV is complicated by the fact that Time-Warner has gone all digital, so each camper must connect a cable box to their TV setup. This is not straightforward and required a 1 1/2 day wait for a cable technician who said that almost none of the motorhomes are able to get good reception with the cable boxes inside their motorhomes. We were able to connect by using an old DirecTV cable in our rig. This is not the campground's fault directly, but seems that they need a more permanent solution to a problem that will be ongoing.

Beautiful view of Acadia National Park and Flanders Bay. This is a good location from which to explore Ellsworth, Schoodic Peninsula and Bar Harbor without being in the busy area of Bar Harbor. Big rigs are put in an upper, un-wooded area of the campground. Smaller rigs, trailers, and tents are right at waterfront. They charge an additional fee for use of air conditioning and 50 amp. The campground is pretty simple, but the view is lovely, even from the upper area. The owner was lovely, and very helpful. We would stay here again, definitely.
