After 15,000 plus miles of RVing we may have found one of the rare destination campgrounds. Fifty five acres on the Kenebec river in Bingham Maine. with 2,000 foot turf runway, tent sites, platform tents, various size cabins, no limit big rig sites with great Wi-Fi and cable, well stocked bar, decent small cafe menu and a full range of outdoor activities including ATV trails, white water rafting, moose safari and more.
Found another one of those rare RV spots worth spending extra days. Glen’s Cove is a campground, not a resort or fancy place to stay. But if you want low cost camping, fishing, power boating, canoeing, kayaking, biking or a just quiet place to stay and great people to visit with on the office porch or around the campfire in the evening then this place is worth looking into. Concrete boat ramp, dock and slips with electric for up 25 foot boats, enclosed fish cleaning station and plenty of room for trailer parking or boat and RV storage. Very large St Mary’s river waterfront common area for watching the freighters go by, napping in the hammock or enjoying campfires and lively discussions just about every evening. Pet friendly and playground for the kids. Most sites are well shaded and a few on the hill are satellite friendly. Fire pits, picnic tables, 30 amp and water at all sites plus a dump cart and small tractor for all to use for the dump station. Sites are pretty level, grassy with gravel. The camp access road and all interior roads are well maintained gravel. Showers and bathrooms are scattered around the park and there is a honor system laundry on the hill near the entrance, all are older but well maintained and clean. Camp store is well stocked with fishing gear and rental movies. Twenty-five RV sites, 5 tent sites and four waterfront cabins. Wi-Fi and rental motors and boats available at the office. Owners live on site, are very friendly and go out of their way to be sure everyone has a great camping visit. Camping rate reflects Passport America discount, seven days or more is $18.
GREAT small park. Yes, sites spaced close, so holidays and prime season could find you close to neighbor. BUT, great views, small boat canoe/kayak launch. If you go to the lighthouse, you get bragging rights to "been farther east than you have." Also easy access to Canada and FDR summer home - must see. Be sure you go to Sunset Point in Lubec. There is another RV park with same name not too far away.
We decided to go for two days just to see. Not bad, not great but I would call it a real campground. Quite a few seasonal sites but most of them are neat with flowers and a personal touch with decorations. Didn't see one site that I would call open, in fact setting up a satellite would be very difficult if not impossible, if sat. important better ask in advance. Verizon MiFi and cell phones working well. TV - strong signals but few channels. Electric at 117 volts and water pressure good. Sites are reasonably wide but not well defined leading to various ideas on how to park. This is a work in progress campground. Looking around there are many signs of major efforts to rebuild and update facilities. Small sandy swimming beach, good boat ramp for trailer launching. Main building just remodeled and looks very nice. Restroom I looked at was not modern but very clean. Few children around so far and the ones we saw were very well behaved and quiet. Once off interstate paved roads are less than smooth and dirt access road is typical. Interior roads are graded but could use some more attention. Due to dense trees there is very little grass so outdoor rugs/mats are very useful here. Apparently this campground has a strong following as office reported only a couple tent sites still avail. for the 4th weekend. If you canoe or kayak this is a good place. Moose Island is actually owned by the campground and is a nice paddle. And the true test for any campground, would we return someday? Yes!
VERY continent location for touring Acadia and mainland attractions. Our site had wooden deck with table a reasonable amount of room. Plenty of room to navigate paved roads in park. Card access security gate after hours. Most notable difference was TWO water faucets at each site-nice touch.
If towing DON'T miss camp entrance once on side road. Terraced sites generally level, but some work required to setup. Access to water front was disappointing, very long walk and not well marked, if driving to water, no place to park. Had planned to kayak but no way to get our kayak to waterfront without a lot of extra effort. Quiet, well maintained park, just about every site shaded. Best thing, staff and work campers. Extremely helpful with local attractions and information for our next stop.
Adult only, quiet, shaded, reasonable rates, well maintained and cared for. Raked every site between campers. Tidal marsh is great kayak trip near high tide. Small boat ramp to marsh at office with rentals. Close to many attractions and beach.
Rate reflects Passport America discount. In general facilities are in disrepair. One building falling down and one (had indoor pool I think) had big tarp on roof and signs that roof failing. Isolated and quiet are the best things I can say. Entry road was dirt and very long and VERY narrow with MANY potholes. Door to what I think was laundry had door knob removed and would not open. Would not stay here again.
