I was pleasantly surprised by this campground. When you first arrive, they hand you a folder full of information of the area and transportation. Very nice touch! The campground was packed. Our 33 foot was 1 ft away from the trailer behind us. We took the PATH to NYC. It was easy and safe to walk to the PATH. We also went to the restaurant nearby featured in Guy Fieri's show. The kids really liked the pancakes! The dogs had to walk along a narrow strip of grass by the back fence. It was not too bad. Be aware - It was not easy to get to the campground even with the instructions from the campground. If you are not familiar with the area like us, I would recommend that you research the best way to get there and that you are aware of the tolls. The tolls will put a dent in your pocket!
We camped here over Labor Day weekend. We were on the Beach Campground. We arrived after dark and beware the gate is locked and the office will give you a pass code to open the gate. The entrance was very difficult to find in the dark and the gate not lit at all. The road in the beach campground was just gravel so it was dusty. The nicest thing was the beach is right there! We have never stayed so close to the beach from our campsite. The park is pet friendly and dogs can go on the beach at any time! The restrooms in the beach campground are not updated and they are horrendous! The showers were backing up so only one shower was working which made for a long line. We really cannot recommend any good restaurants. Seacow was not very good and pricey. McConkey's was a little better but fried greasy food. Not much to do in the area but so nice to relax. We would come again and hope that the restrooms get updated soon!
This is a beautiful campground. We had site S27, which had plenty of room. We had no issues going over the bridge pulling our 33 ft trailer but it was close! There is not much to do in the area but I recommend the Vermont Country Store. There was only one shower, which was clean and private.
I was very nervous about staying in this campground with no hookups and a large trailer. We had a wonderful experience. We made our reservations months ahead for a RV 35FT site. The morning of our arrival, we called the campground to let know that we needed to make sure they had a site big enough for our slides and trailer. They had one ready for us when we got there! The sites are beautiful and wooded but manageable to drive to. It stays nice and cool in Maine so we could leave our dogs inside with the windows open. Sites for our size trailer are pull-through. We had to back out when it was time to leave because we could not make the turn. No major problem! Staff was very helpful! Park is amazing!
Great campground to access Camden! We reserved campsite 60 based on the reviews here. We moved after one night to another site. Site 60 was a little secluded, wooded and with too many mosquitoes. To me, the best sites are in the open field because there are few mosquitoes there! Bathrooms are clean and new. Do not count on any Wi-Fi connection. It does not work well. I recommend the Mariner's restaurant on main street Camdem.
What a wonderful campground! This was our first trip to the area and our first stay in this campground. It is in an ideal place to explore Cape Cod. The campground is in great shape. We had site 86 and it was plenty big for our 33' trailer. I think I liked the sites closer to the water because I believe that they drained better. The beach is huge and fantastic for finding all sorts of interesting sea critters. Water was freezing in July. I do wish they had laundry facilities. Other than that, it was perfect. Make your way to the Chatham pier and see the seals feeding from the boats. Visit P-Town to see a different side! I recommend the Hyannis Whale Watcher cruises out of Barnstable Harbor for an incredible whale sightseeing experience! I also recommend the pizza place near the campground - they deliver and had great pizza and wings.
We have camped here twice. Once for 3 days to access DC and the most recent stay as a one night stopover. It was not very busy either time. The park is easy to access and pretty. My kids like the huge grass area and the playground. It's pet friendly too! I was not impressed with the restrooms. I do not like the 11 AM checkout. Overall a nice campground, we will be coming again.
This was our second visit to this campground. You really cannot go wrong with any site. Both times we have stayed on the river campground. The river campground is shady and cooler. The beach side does not have any tree canopy. The drive to the campground is long and tricky. I recommend that you arrive before dark because there are a lot of trees to watch out for but the road is wide and paved. We had no problems. You will have to maneuver not to hit the trees. We do not like that this park is not pet friendly. You cannot take the dogs anywhere near the beach at any time and there are very limited areas to walk the dogs. My other complaint is the parking situation. We were there during 4th of July week and the parking situation was terrible. There were cars and boats parked everywhere including double parked in non-designated spots. Some sites had 4 vehicles plus boat, jet ski, and camper. We complained to the ranger and the response was that each site can have up to 8 people so that means potentially 8 vehicles plus boats! And we really saw this. Boats were sitting parked on the side of the road for days. Our impression was that the rangers do not enforce parking at all. Also, quiet hours are not enforced and really the rangers do not do a good job patrolling and enforcing the rules. Campers were up partying loudly until very late. On the other hand, the bathrooms are very clean and updated. The beach is beautiful! We would be back because of the natural beauty of the area and the town is wonderful.
This was our second stay at this campground. It is in a great location to visit Charleston. The roads in the campground are in good shape. The one thing I do not like about this campground is the poor drainage in the sites. We stayed at sites 47 and 49. I think that there much better sites but they book up. Mosquitoes are bad and I find them to be worse here than at beach campgrounds. One nice thing about this campground is the huge dog play area! So much fun for our dogs.
This park is very nice but the loop we stayed at was very difficult to maneuver. We stayed in site 115 which much to our surprise was layed out so that we could not back up into it. We had to drive the loop against traffic in order to be able to get into our site. We arrived after dark and found this to be extremely difficult. You see this loop is called the gauntlet. The road is tiny and there are trees right next to you and over you on both sides. Not to mention cars that are sticking out of their sites. Lots of trees had the scars from trailers hitting them. This part of our stay was very stressful. The bathroom and showers were very outdated and for this reason it looks dirty. Raccoons and deer coming up to our site in the middle of the day! The beach was great! The beach was not very full even though it was Memorial Day weekend. The wonderful thing too was that we could take our dogs on the beach. For this reason mainly, we would stay again but we would not come in after dark and would not stay in the site 115.
