Arriving in this park we were excited to be able to camp near the St. John River. We were sad to discover however that all the sites there were taken up by seasonal campers. Having had to pay cash for the site, we proceeded up to the campsite which was approximately 3 km from the main road into the bush. The site itself was peaceful and we had a good night's sleep, however we ended up near a swamp, which stank. We also discovered the site was under a boil water advisory, something we were not told at the office. All in all, not a terrible experience, but the lack of info on the water problems and the fact we were not where we wanted to be on the site made for not a great experience. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
As another recent reviewer said, they've recently added some transient sites to this mostly seasonal park. Unfortunately, the sites were created by pushing a deep, thick layer of stones, uphill, just barely wide enough for a rig to sit up on. It took about 30 minutes to get into the site and then we were expected to hook up to sewer which was uphill from the rig. Automatic leveling helped, but even with that, hooking back up with the truck on a downward slope was difficult. We chatted with two other couples that came over to talk to us after watching how difficult it was to park. They were just as frustrated trying to find a site big enough for their coach. I would not recommend this park to anyone with anything larger than 20'. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A typical RV park almost entirely filled with seasonals. Locals told me that there were few to no spots open to transients until recently. Owner recently put in about 25 back in spots with sewer, water, 30 amp in a large open grassy field with no shade. Sites have new gravel and are long enough for big rigs but narrow lanes of gravel connecting sites and lack of turn radius at corners forces you to drive over soft grass. These new sites are still a work in progress as the gravel needs to be firmed up to handle heavy RVs. Each site has a picnic table and fire ring. About half of these new sites look fairly level and the rest have quite a bit of incline front to back. Bathrooms with showers are nearby although the shower wasn't clean and only had hot water so I couldn't adjust the temp. There is a small playground for kids. No cable TV, no free Wi-Fi. The few paved roads need serious repair both inside and going to the campground. Gorgeous views of the river from the campground. Per their web site, they don’t take reservations. Rate was $35 plus tax with no discounts. Overall a marginal overnight campground. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We made reservation, which were given to someone else. We excepted a smaller site yet had to pay the same amount of money. When our friends came to visit, they were told at the gate that we were not there. After spending over one hundred dollars, we were kicked off the beach because it was five minutes after our check out time. The bathrooms and showers appeared to have not been cleaned in weeks. We had to ask several employees around the park to bring us a fire pit and only received one after already being there for a several hours. They charged us extra for a site we didn't receive, and when I spoke to the owner about this error, I was told it was not his problem. Although the seasonal side of the park is relatively appealing, due to the monumental poor customer service by the owner himself, I have no intentions of ever returning to Woolastook Family Park again. We camped here in a Tent.
