Very expensive for what you get. Also have to pay cash with no receipts given. Very rude employees. Not helpful about giving you advice before you get there about where to park when you check in. We had an employee follow us in a cart like we hadn't pd or something. Campground is located at 73 Eldridge Road. We camped here in a Motorhome.
For an overnight stop this was a convenient campground, but for the price I don't think I would return. The facilities worked fine, but I think that campgrounds (particularly in the Northeast US) are finding new ways to annoy their guest just as airlines have turned flying into a pain. Fees for "extras" are now everywhere e.g. why would you have to pay extra for air conditioning use on top of a 50 amp service charge? This campground charges extra for everything, air conditioning, cable, restrooms, etc. to the point that you feel ripped off just for stopping. While the front desk folks were just fine and the site was adequate, the experience itself left me wanting to go somewhere else in the future. Oh, and bring cash since that's all they take. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Mostly a seasonal and permanents park, though they do accept overnighters, and we basically enjoyed our first stay here. We had a site near the entrance with full hook up. When I reserved the site over 6 months ago, I questioned the extra charge for cable added on to the quoted full hook price. She told me all full hook ups included cable, which would be fine with me, but why list it as a separate charge add on?? She said they are working on correcting that on the website. It is still not changed. We loved our roomy site with nice trees and grass, but a walk to the back of the campground confirmed we would not want a site back there since it is very congested and tight. Tent sites are basically all together in one area, but can be intermixed anywhere they want. One usual gripe I have is the "pay to shower" which I will never use as it is the principal of the matter with the "nickel and dime" idea. I would rather pay the higher flat fee for the extra features (including the cable) instead of showers that call for me to bring in rolls of quarters. Bundles of wood are priced high at 6.00 a pack. Interstate and train noise close by, but is not intolerable. No credit cards here, as I had to send in full payment by check before we got here. Good idea to take a copy of the cashed check to have in hand upon check in, since the lady at the office did not have our reservation. That changed quickly once I presented the cashed check copy. Good one night stop over, and we would stay here again for perhaps more than one night, but not really a destination. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We arrived without reservation, asked for a site that might get WiFi and were pleased to be cheerfully accommodated. Sites near the office can use the park's should have a usable connection. We had had a strong and stable connection via our WiFiRangerSky, and had a fair, useable connection direct from my Nook inside out unit. The staff was courteous and helpful. The restrooms and showers were clean and well maintained. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Easy access off I-95, gated entry, paved road. Lots of seasonal sites. We were here during the week and it was very quiet. You will hear the hum of traffic from I-95 but with a fan on inside at night it was not bothersome. Has a mix of open grassy sites with some shade as well as woodsy sites. If you want to be in the Wells/Ogunquit/York area and don't want to spend $50 and up to be out on Route 1, this is a good choice. You can be at Wells Beach in less than 10 minutes after a short drive on Route 1 south. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very friendly & helpful staff. Convenient to I-95. Many local activities within driving distance, though the park itself offers few if any activities. Lots of open space for tenting groups. There seem to be no laundry facilities. Not sure about area laundromats, as we just waited to do laundry at our next stop. We'd stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a small campground but very nice. There aren't any activities, but when we go to this area we are visiting family and are not at the CG much. We did not notice much highway noise. We have stayed at other CGs in the area where you are packed in like sardines and they charge for anything they can think of. Not here though, our site was a good size and the staff was friendly. For the price you can even get cable TV. The only odd thing is that you have to send a check for the deposit and pay in cash for the rest of the balance. It is also close to so many beaches, shopping and restaurants. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I chose this park as it was close to home to try out my new travel trailer. Rate was $0 as the park is part of the Thousand Trails network. There is a gate where you have to enter a code to get it - made me feel secure. The office staff have you drive around and choose a site (a bit annoying while towing a trailer around). There are limited pull-throughs. A majority of the sites are parallel to the road so you face the camper opposite you (great for folks traveling in groups). I chose a pull-through as it was just my partner, dogs, and myself. My site was mostly level, the road is gravel that leads to the sites. and the sites are gravel. You have to watch for awning clearances as many of the sites have trees in random places. I didn't see cable TV advertised however there was cable TV that had 30-40 channels (nice surprise). Campground staff was friendly and didn't push on me to renew my Thousand Trails membership for next year (which I will be doing). Campground could use a little better upkeep in the landscaping department - I think a majority of this has to do with a good portion of the park being seasonals. Overall it was a pleasant stay and I will be back. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Although the sites here were fairly close together and there were a lot of them, this turned out to be a fairly quiet and nice park. Interior roads were paved to the office, then gravel to and in the sites. The campground was full of trees, but they were mostly easy to navigate around - some did scrape a bit on taller coaches. A code was required to get into the entry gate, which we liked. Thirty amp power and water were strong, and each site had sewer, a table and a fire pit. We found a fairly level site, but there were many that were not. There was a charge for park Wi-Fi, but we brought our own and the signal was fine to it and our Verizon phones. Bathrooms were dated, but clean, and the laundry room was nice with 6 washers, 6 dryers and a nice folding table. There were many stores, services, tourist towns and excellent restaurants nearby, but getting onto very busy highway 1 was difficult at almost any hour. The daily rate is based on our RPI membership. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Thousand Trails rate. The last reviewer must have been in another campground. The interior roads are packed gravel and the sites are crushed rock, mostly level and utilities convenient. No Cable TV, our Wi-Fi devices worked just fine and cell phone was near full strength. Over the air TV channels are a little affected by heavy weather and Hurricane Andrea was causing heavy weather this week. Even with heavy rain the sites and roads drained well, not much standing water. Park models are evenly spaced and seem to be in good condition. They are all in the pine trees and pine needles and stuff collect when no one is around but otherwise okay. Laundry and restrooms are clean, pool open and clean. Laundry is a little pricey. Staff is helpful and courteous. Wells and adjoining towns are tourist oriented but very nice communities with lots of cool stuff to browse through, neat bakeries. The beach is nearby but with Andrea coming up the coast the beaches were deserted and surf high. We enjoyed our quiet stay here and would return. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Stayed one night as overnight park opened Mid April. Lots uneven, lots of trees, state of disrepair. In the middle of the campground badly run down vacation cottages. Not an impressive park. No Internet at site, no cable. Water and sewer were available. Stayed thru passport America discount. Would not stay there again. There are lots of campsites in the area. On the plus side, park is close to beaches. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
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! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
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.
This is the nicest east coast park we have ever stayed in. They go out of their way to make your stay great. While they are a heavy seasonal campground, they do support the short term camper. I would recommend this campground to anyone and will stay here again as I have for the past 18+ years. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We have camped here for a number of years and always find it clean and friendly. Wi-Fi signal is very good and cable connection is also good. Sites will easily accommodate large rigs. Large playground with basketball court for those with kids. Short drive to Kennebunkport, Ogunquit and the shops in Kittery. Hope to return again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Really enjoyed our second visit to this campground which is becoming an annual event. Spacious sites, quiet, clean facilities, and excellent location to the beaches to the south, Portland and Freeport. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
We stayed 2 weeks at this particular campground and loved our stay. When the sun went down the park turned nice and quiet. It seemed as if all the campers respected the quiet of the night time hours, and it was a pleasure to have a quiet campground to relax in. The sites were large enough for our Toy-Hauler, although backing in can be a challenge if your neighbors are parked close, but we made it. Staff was very friendly and helpful with everything we needed. New pool was great to sit by, and the sea breeze was wonderful! Faster WI-fi would be the only thing I wish was better,(faster speeds) but since it was a free service one should not really complain I guess. Over all this is a great campground, and we plan on another 2 week stay next year! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
First time camping in Maine and we stayed here with 10 other family members in three RV spots and one tent site. The staff went out of their way to reserve three adjacent slots and a tent site very close by, when we all arrived everything was ready. Very quiet, and very cool during the day with all the shade at the site despite a hot sunny day. Very conveniently located, good Wi-Fi signal, clean restrooms. Looking forward to our next visit already. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Nice clean place, lots of seasonal campers, but plenty of room for visitors. You can see the river, the park is level, nice to walk, large office with a camp store. The pool is wonderful, actually one little on for the kiddie too. There are 2 other "Sea-Vu" cg in wells, but this is the best. will go back next year. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The tenters actually get a "sea view". The bathrooms always closed for cleaning??? Clean baths are great but not if they close them for cleaning all day. It is a long walk to open bathrooms. Nice sites but no picnic table at ours. The Park clean and staff very nice. We would stay again. They have their own mini-golf that's affordable!! Secure gated campground makes you feel safe along with your belongings!! We had a good time!! We camped here in a Tent.
Park has very friendly office staff. Has wooded, level sites. No escort to the site, but they are plainly marked. Fires allowed and rings provided. Water pressure and quality good. Some road noise from US 1. A lot of 'permanent settlers' but all very well kept up. WiFi available but we had a tough time staying connected. Has beautiful ocean views. Only drawback was the ever present train rumbling close by every hour or so. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here recently and I must say the name is a little deceiving, there is no view to the sea at this campground. Our campsites were positioned in a field with not shade and not a tree to be found. The pool and all other campground amenities were located across the field and then across a busy road. The campground indicates it is secure but in the field it is not secure, anyone can just drive right in. We did not allow our children to go across the road to the pool or playground because of the traffic. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Staff very friendly and helpful. They gave us many great recommendations. Many seasonal sites but all are very neat and clean - many park models and mobile homes. Many of these sites have a nice view of the marsh and ocean beyond. Most of the rvers do not have this view. Tenters have the best views of the marsh/ocean. Sites are all back to back with pine trees. Sites are decent size - ours was about 44x35 - we have a 38ft MH and could park the toad sideways in front of the MH. Even though the sites are of decent size, due to the back to back sites, I felt very "closed in" and many "eyes" watching. This is the reason for the 7 rating, not because of anything else. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Best campground we have stayed at in the area. Pricey, but they all are on the coast. No shade, but the sites are huge, hot tub nice, security gate and helpful friendly staff. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Beautiful, new park with very strong hook-ups and lots of room. Close to everything but still in the woods. Clean, friendly and one of the best in the area. would stay here again! Price reflects area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice park, great location: away from hussle of Route 1 but convenient to Kennebunkport and Ogunquit. Park was very clean, staff was wonderful, pool and hot tub were great. Sites were VERY large but offered little shade. Great playground and game room. Wood and ice not overpriced. One of the cleanest campgrounds I have ever stayed. If you stay make sure to bring your bike it is the best way to get around. Traffic can be difficult so use bike or trolley service. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Sea-Vu West advertises as a premier RV resort with amenities for big rigs. When we were there there were more pop-ups than big rigs. It is not premier by any means since even though the pool and playground are nice, they are not outstanding in our opinion. Price of $60 per night is an over charge for what you get. They advertise a distance from Wells Beach of over one mile. This is not correct, it is easily closer to three miles to Wells Beach. The desk staff was discourteous, there was a lot of partying and loud music on one night we were there. The fans did not work in the showers, and there are only two bathrooms for the entire campground. If they are going to allow pop-ups, they will need more bathrooms. Overall disappointed with the campground, since web site and price makes you expect a much nicer environment We camped here in a Motorhome.
As an alternative to the higher priced parks in Wells, this is acceptable. Owners very nice and helpful, which helps make up for the limited facilities. This is an older, totally wooded park, with most of the sites occupied by seasonal units. The pull-thru site we had was narrow, but we got in ok with our 30' fifth wheel. We were camping with another couple who had a 25' travel trailer. They were not able to pull forward out of their site, and had to have 2 men plus wife guide the husband as he backed out. Don't know if this is common place or not. We had our 2 adult daughters with us, but their rates are based on 4 people, so we didn't pay extra. We enjoyed our stay and would probably go back, if only to save money. Most of the other rv parks in Wells are around $50/night. Our daughter brought her car, so we only paid $29 plus tax per night, for full hookups and cable TV. If you're comfortable handling your rig and want to save money, give it a try. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
