We were excited for our trip but were unfortunately disappointing. The sites are tight to say the least. Showers and bathroom was dirty with no hand soap ever in our 5 days. We never once saw bathroom closed for cleaning but did see some hair in shower drain. The train that passed by and blew their whistle at least twice during the night and woke us all. Playground was enjoyed by kids. Poor weather made it easy for us to decide to leave early. The amenities in our own driveway far surpassed these. Won't be back. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
PERFECT! We are seasonal camper trailer residents and absolutely love this campground. Could not be better! The owners strive to make the park better with every day: and succeed. The park is very clean and the staff is very polite and helpful when needed. The CG is located near the Rachel Carlson Wildlife Preserve and consists of beautiful tree shaded sites for cool afternoons and seasonal views. The fall is breathtaking! The seasonal campers like ourselves, welcome and enjoy the company of the weekend camper and do everything to make them feel at home and assist them with solving even the most simple camping dilemmas. Children and pets are plentiful and add to the wonderful ambience! Stop in, spend a night. You'll want to spend the season. We did and will continue to enjoy a truly awesome campground!

Moderately priced park in the woods, with nice atmosphere. We normally don't like to be in the trees to protect the roof of our motorhome, but decided that two days was OK. Was tight entry to our site winding in and through the trees in our 40' motorhome, as we followed very nice guide in golf cart. Made it OK, however. Friendly here, with stop on trolley at entrance, owner gave us (at our request) a recommendation for an excellent restaurant which we thoroughly enjoyed. We would stay here again, although we are just passing through. We camped here in a Motorhome.
It is a small campground on the trolley line on Post Road in Wells. It is a good location. Most of the sites appear to be seasonal sites and they were not well taken care of. The roads were narrow (not enough room to easily navigate my pop-up camper in the site) and had pot holes. We had friends come to visit the first night and there were so many bugs that we could not comfortably sit outside (even with the fire, citronella candles and bug spray). On the second day, we packed up and checked into a local resort motel because of the bugs! The staff is friendly and apologized when I told them we were checking out early due to the poor conditions. I stated that the river was "stagnant" and was told that I was wrong and everyone had bugs this year. I have been camping for a long time and this is the WORST campground I have been too. Spend a little more and go somewhere else! We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
I had a wonderful experience camping at Riverside this year. I am a return customer from last year year and was so delighted to see the changes that were made throughout the past year. There are new owners this year, and they really seem to be improving the park. All of the people that worked there that I spoke with were friendly and helpful. They painted all of the buildings, which really gives the whole park a really nice touch. The bathrooms and showers were MUCH cleaner than last year, which was extremely nice to see as well. I have a teenager who was very excited to see that there was internet access this year, and the wi-fi was very fast. I also have two younger children who enjoy playing on the playground, and one of the new owners said that the new playground that they ordered will arrive in early September. They have a pool, which is also a nice convenience, especially for my children. They also have plans to re-do the pool which should be happening sometime later this year. They are also putting in laundry facilities this year, which will be greatly appreciated. They also have added on to the store, which only had ice cream and candy last year, and now holds many things that tent campers(as I previously was) would enjoy having. The owners went around and checked how everything was one morning, and we had a very nice conversation. Two of my children slept outside in a tent, and they said that it was quiet all night long, and that they slept straight through the night. We came on one of their busiest nights of the whole year, according to one of the women who worked in the office. I would recommend Riverside Campground to anyone, as I have to my friends, and they have already made reservations. I was very pleased with all they had to offer, and will definitely be returning next year. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Small CG with way to many tents (everywhere). Seasonal sites where not taken care of, some overgrown. The roads where rough with pot holes. Location is good as it is on the trolley line. It is a place to overnight if you have no choice. We where not able to book anything else due to holiday in Canada. Owners are friendly and new so you may see change. We will check in with them in a few years and see how things go. We just fit in our site. We camped here in a Motorhome.
