This is the second year we've stayed here on our way to and from New Brunswick. The management here is very friendly and the all the facilities are very well kept. I see some very trivial complaints in the reviews and wonder why the negative comments. It's supposed to be a campground not the Hilton. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Well, where do I start. We have stayed at the campground over the past few years, giving positive reviews. I don't know what happened this year (maybe a new owner?) but it has gone DOWN HILL. Partying until 3-4am, people DRUNK in the campground walking around and disturbing others, the owner complaining about people yet choosing to do nothing about it. The owners were extremely unprofessional and rude. We will never stay here again, nor will we recommend this pitiful campground to anyone again. We are so disappointed in the ignorance of the owners (maybe new ones). We have also noticed that many of the people who use to frequent this campground have left and gone with the other campground up the road in Bangor. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Rate is with Good Sam discount. I would not describe this park as Big Rig Friendly as our "pull-thru" site required disconnecting the toad before making sharp turns on a grassy "road", dodging a surface rock, before entering our site. Even with his CDL experience, my driver found it necessary to back-up before pulling into this narrow site. This park was okay, but the necessary unhooking diminished its close to the interstate advantage. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Another great year at Paul Bunyan CG. The Wi-Fi worked great, and available throughout the campground. The staff are wonderful. The campground is kept very clean. My kids love the pool and all the friendly Canadians that also equally love this campground. I HIGHLY recommend this campground - and believe me I rarely give such a glowing recommendation. We always will be returning next year. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Wi-Fi was available in the campground, but we were down in a hole from the office and we could not pick it up. Sites were on grass with trees/bushes between. Fire rings were around and people were using them and it was a little smoky. Why do people have to have fires especially when no one is around them? For an overnight stop this was OK, but not that great. Good thing it was not raining. The roads were dirt and looked like they could get muddy quick. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground is conveniently located off I-95 on Union Street. There are 52 shaded and sunny sites with some pull through’s 30 & 50 amp service, water, electric, sewer, dump station, restroom, showers, children s play area, rec hall, large pool, camp store, lending library. Good for touring the Maine “Down East” areas and Bangor itself. Campfires are allowed. This campground is convenient to everything in Bangor – it is a small campground with some seasonal sites. Nice playground and pool for children and easy and friendly check-in. We passed Stephen King’s house with his black gates and birds on top – interesting. Went to the new super Walmart in Bangor for food shopping and also went downtown Bangor to the park where the huge Paul Bunyan Statue is. We have seen this statue over the years and both of us believe that they must have painted it again within the past year. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We were very happy with this campground. The pool was great, the owners were great, the other campers were nice. The campground was quiet - yet it was a family campground that we and our three children LOVED. The only drawback is the air planes that fly over, the last one flew over around 9:30pm or so and then you do not hear any til the morning - around 6:30am. The lots were spacious, and fire rings at each site. The hayride is a nice event for the younger kids. We will definitely stay here again and again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Beware of this campground. Sites are not level and as another reviewer wrote they are grass and very muddy when it rains. When we pulled out of our site, my rig looked like I had been off road in it! We were given the wrong direction to pull into our pull thru site. The campground is old and in need of repair. A couple from Florida had to back their rig to a point where they could turn around and leave as the site they reserved had somebody else in it. NOT a campground for Big Rigs. Our motorhome is 37' and I would not want to be any longer and still get around in it. And there is NO WI-FI not to mention the low flying Jets landing at the airport just make this campground a DO NOT STAY HERE. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We chose this campground because of listed Wi-Fi availability. As is so often the case it was not working. Otherwise this is a decent campground with large open spaces. Sites are big enough with enough space between. Nearby airport gets quiet early enough in the evening. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We were glad this campground remained open in late October as we headed south out of Canada. Sites are grassy and got really muddy in the rain, but the 30-amp utility worked fine (50 amp costs extra to unlock), and we were able to get Dish satellite from the open site that we selected away from the trees. The wifi did not work at all, even next to the office. The property is pleasant enough, with a big grassy field that they have a music festival on during Labor Day, a pond, and lots of trees. It’s close to the airport so when the wind is blowing in a certain direction the airport noise got fairly loud. It’s also convenient to Bangor attractions and shopping. Best of all they accepted our Passport America for two nights, which brought the cost way down. Several old rigs scattered around diminished the atmosphere, but not badly. I would definitely stay here again at the Passport America rate. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The campground is somewhat old, but we were treated well each visit and the price is reasonable. Amenities were about average, the pool was clean but cool (outdoor pool) Wi-fi didn't work on our site. The kids loved the wagon ride. There is some aircraft noise as the campground is near the airport. It is convenient located for shopping in Bangor or a stopover on a trip south. We'll be back. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This place is a fine home base if you need to get business done in Bangor, or use it to see Acadia when the park is booked. Other than weak water pressure, we saw no problem whatsoever with this park. Yes, the pull through sites are somewhat tight, but not as bad as some KOAs we've been to. Sites are wooded, but we were still able to get a satellite signal. Grounds are clean, laundry facilities work great, staff is super friendly, and the scenery is really pretty. Sure it's not the beach Maine scenery, but it's a lovely park-like setting. We liked it a lot. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a nice park but has several drawbacks. The people are friendly and do a good job of maintaining the grounds. We stayed in a full hook-up site. 30 amp service kept shutting down (With only coffee maker and electric hot water on.) The big problem was that when the circuit breaker kicked off I had to go to the office and have the maintenance man reset it in the office building. Water pressure never got above 30 PSI. The roads are gravel and in bad shape. The biggest problem was living with "The sound of freedom" That is how Bangor chooses to refer to the jet noise from the Navel Air Base. The jets came thundering over at all times of the day and night. They are so loud and so close that our rig shook violently. I am really sorry to report the negatives of this park. But you should know and be prepared. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a large campground with pleasant grassy sites. Adjacent woods with trails for walking dogs. Our site was soft after recent rains, and
we almost couldn't get out of it. We left deep ruts. The sewer connection was about 10' behind the motor home, so we ended up using the
dump station on the way out. We would stay there again, but we would inspect the site before accepting it in wet weather. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a smaller campground. It's located about 10 minute away from I-95. On the down side it is near the Bangor Airport so you will here planes coming and going. It's not too loud but you hear it. Other than that it's a nice place. We've camped there several times and will probably go back again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have stayed here before on our way to NS. Lovely, clean and good pull-through. I would rate this establishment a 10 except for two things. First, the "Owner" (written on his shirt so he must need constant reminders) has no manners and is unfriendly. Other staff are competent but also unfriendly so at least he has trained them well. The second is that while the Wi-Fi connection is fair from where we were, the bandwidth is dial-up standard. Pathetic in today's age. We camped here in a Motorhome.
An excellent spot..been coming here for years and the new owners are great guys....its a quite spot and the planes come in right over your head to the Bangor airport, the kids love it....clean, and friendly. This is a definite favorite of ours, we will be back again next year..lots of shopping just down the road at the Airport Mall. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Another fine year at Pleasant Hill. We stayed in a different section of the campground - it was very quiet. The only two concerns I have is that the men's washroom had NO toilet paper from Saturday afternoon until Sunday afternoon. The washrooms also could use a little updating, and paint. We will stay again - as not many choices in Bangor. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
The term "nickel and dime ya" comes to mind, only it's $5. If you want water and 30 amp it's $32. 50 amp will cost you $5 more. If you want 30 amp water and sewer it will cost you $37; if you want 50 amp water and sewer it's $42. I suppose there's something to be said for paying for what you get. By the way the Wi-Fi will cost you $1.50/day. The roads are paved and the sites are grass. The showers were clean but the hot water was about 2 degrees above body temp. After we set up it seemed like a nice quiet place. Until the Air Guard and other aircraft started landing. We apparently are right on the final approach to Bangor International airport. You can wave to the pilots as they are landing and see them wave back. It's very noisy when they are landing I just hope it doesn't go on all night. The sites are large and you are not on top of one another. I think I'll go a bit farther down the road and find something else not so close to the airport. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A great campground. This campground is quiet, peaceful. It has a nice pool and mini golf. The washrooms are a bit dated but clean. The staff is nice. I am glad that we have found a new campground to spend a part of our summers at. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Incredible camping. Super nice staff and meticulously groomed grounds. Awesome grassy green camping spots, right up the road from town. There is shopping, route 95, and Bangor international airport is 5 minutes away. The Air National Guard base has full services: BX, commissary, pay, personnel branch and medcom. I would highly recommend this campground to any RV'er, camper, tenter. It is worth WAY more than what they are charging per night. Plenty to do at the campground for kids and adults. Pet friendly. We will be returning. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We just returned home after a 3 day stay. Owners/staff were very helpful. Overall the park was clean. The only area that could use an upgrade is the office/store which is somewhat outdated. We will definitely stay again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was our third time staying here. It's a great spot, and the staff is friendly. A very cozy campground, and it's very clean. Definitely will be back. Close to shopping just down the road. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Spent one night on the way to Baxter state park. Easy access off I-95. Grocery and restaurants within 5 minutes. Wi-Fi was sporadic. Quiet hours were quiet. The office was friendly. Would be a decent CG to use as a base for the Bangor area. Not a destination by itself. We would stop here again. Would have had higher rating if the Wi-Fi was stronger. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is the 5th year we have stayed here, usually overnight on the way to and from New Brunswick. The park is now under new management who went out of their way to accommodate us. Our new motor home is large and long and we're towing a car, and they spent time finding and showing us the safest route to our site. That said, not all the sites are level, ours included. However the sites are spaced reasonably well, the place is clean and well maintained, and despite being in the path of planes in and out of Bangor airport, quiet. We will continue to stay here whenever we're in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is our second time staying here...Its a nice run quite campground..Its close to Bangor, the sites are very nice, the pool is great and the stay is friendly...Its not a big campground. We would definitely stay here again..cheers We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We were staying here two nights. They reserved our campsite to someone else. We were told we had to move. We were traveling with another couple in their motorhome, so this was not convenient. So we just decided to stay the one night and leave. When we left, their maintenance man was so incredibly rude to us because we were ten minutes late moving out, which was their fault to begin with. I would not recommend them. I don't think they like people from the south. We're from Florida. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very friendly campground that has grass sites that need some leveling. They didn't offer off season rates despite the pool being closed. It is under the approach to Bangor airport but air traffic was light and didn't bother us. It is quiet, clean, easy to get to and would stay there again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a really good campground.We have been on the road for 3 weeks, and our last stop was here, and we said..YES..A nice pleasant spot..Grassy sites, friendly staff, close to town, very clean, nice pool.We are Canadian and have been to many spots.This is small but nice.If you have to stay close to Bangor, you should give this campground a try.We think you will like it. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Great staff. Extremely family friendly! Several planned activities for all. Nice paved roads throughout. Sites are close but not tight. Lots of room to walk, kids rode bikes, etc. Clean pool. Pets are welcome as well. Convenient to interstate, shopping entertainment. WI-FI available, but not free! Most definitely would stay again! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Pleasant Hill should be renamed Unpleasant Hill. We cannot comment on our stay because we were treated so rudely in the check-in office and by the owner while we were parked on the road waiting to check in. The owner was very snippy and Unpleasant and even told us that we could not turn around and ordered us to back out. Pleasant Hill is not very Pleasant. We left and went to a park down the road. We did find Paul Bunyon right down the road to be very pleasant and less expensive and we are staying there for a week. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We did not find Pleasant Hill to be a particularly pleasant place to stay. Arrived on a very hot day, assigned to a site with 30 amp service. Voltage was so low that we were unable to use A/C without danger of damaging the compressor. Nor could we use the microwave. Neighbors told us that power problems on particular sites have been long standing, however, we were not informed of this at check in. Requested and received refund for 2nd night (one miserable night was enough!) but owner was not apologetic or very nice about it - acted as if it was "our fault" that site was not adequate! Beware of low voltage at this park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
