This campground has a lot going well for it. It is very clean and well maintained. Each spot is raked and cleaned after the camper leaves. Hookups are well done and in the right location for a variety of units. We were in the front part of the CG and it seemed a bit less crowded than the River end. Water pressure was OK and cable did fine. Site was pretty level. They have a nice playground and pool plus a game room inside, outside bocci, basketball, and a clean laundry. For all those reasons the place would be a 9 or 10. Unfortunately, there are some negatives that caused me to rate them lower. Depending upon your needs these may, or may not, be an issue. When reserving online, we thought River front sites were available. At check in, we found there are no motor home slots at all. We had included that request in the notes but no one bothered to let us know. They just took our money and would not likely have refunded it if we were unhappy. The WiFi is awful. In four days we never managed to get a good connection. We even went into their hotspot area which did not help at all. I heard the same comments from three other campers. When we asked about it, the lady in the office looked at her computer and said, "it is working fine here, must be OK". Finally, the place was quiet at night but, during the day, neighbors felt the need to serenade us with their choices of music plus the poolside music could be heard. Country on one side and Classic Elvis on the other. It is difficult to sing along to two tunes. The hosts frequently patrolled the area and it did not seem to disturb them. I would stay in the front area again, my wife would not want to return. That's the story, as I see it.
A very nice mom & pop area with a dedicated area for overnighters or short termers. They have a small pool and a nice play area for children and a nice table/chair area for families. I understand they have some cookouts periodically. Laundry was sufficient and fairly priced. As weather was a bit poor and we got in late, the manager allowed my wife to stay after normal closing and lock the door as she left. We appreciate her doing that. Our site was level enough and services were good and well placed. We had several trees between us and the next RV. It is well cared for and maintained. It is no "resort" but is a great place for a night or two. For that reason, I gave it a 10.
This is a tough place to review. It has so much going for it but not everyone will fit there. Most spaces are tight so you'll need to make friends easily. We have a 35' motorhome and got a perfect spot with a great fireplace and decent view. Any larger MH would be some more problem. Max would be 38' in my opinion and that would be pushing it. We had neighbors but there was a tree blocking the view plus they were really nice people. It took a while to get level but we managed. Wi-Fi is fine with our WiFiRanger external antenna. No cable or OTA TV but that was fine for us. Hospitality is very good. They are pleasant and helpful. Mussels at night followed by campfire talk, talent show or local performers. Boat rides were planned but weather got in our way. The grounds are nicely taken care of. Bathrooms are just OK. They are kept very clean but they are small and tight. They plead for you to use very little water. As they are in the edge of nowhere, I am sure water is expensive and scarce at times. Be aware there is no on site sewer. To dump, you have to leave the park and pull alongside the side of the road to a pipe in the ground. It would be a major undertaking to dump mid camping trip. The surrounding area is beautiful. Not too many restaurants within 20 miles but there are enough available. It really is worth the effort to stay here. Best suited would be mid sized campers and fifth wheelers, small motor homes and vans and class C. Lots of tent spots. Lots of grass for kid play. Small playground.. If it fits your size, you may call it a "10".
Very nice, quiet park. Very near good food and good biking on the Confederation Trail. Our site was barely large enough for 35' MH but we made it. There were only a couple of sites that would take a larger unit. Many were seasonal campers in travel trailers or fifth wheelers. Everyone was quiet and respectful. Wifi was available at about $5/ day. We did not use it but reception was very good. Actually, the antennae was right at our site. FREE wifi is available at Georgetown library. If you catch them open, the will give you access for the time of your stay so you can park in front of the library to use 24 hours a day. Really nice lady in charge and she was a big help. Gate is manned 24 hours and all the attendants seemed very helpful. . We would stay there again if in this area of PEI. It is quiet and quaint but not our favorite. My rating was 7 for MH due to tight sites. Would be an 8 for other vehicles.
We enjoyed our stay here despite the bad weather from storm Arthur. Crew was very welcoming and made us feel welcome. There are quite a few seasonal units but all worked very well together. Everyone takes good care of their spaces. Our site required a bit of work to get level but we made it and we had enough room. Power initially was very low (30 amp) but came up in a few hours. If you can get the 50A go ahead and do so. We have had that problem in other sites. I have to say the crew works hard to keep the site up and does a good job. During the storm, they went their merry way with daily tasks. I was impressed. It would have been easy just to wait it out. Washrooms were clean but a bit old and could use some face lifting. They were satisfactory. Laundry was the same. As many CGs in Canada, the wash was cold water only. They do have propane but not for big tanks. Wifi was good, and free. Cable was $4/ night and was average at best. I don't know if the weather had any effect upon that. We would certainly stay there again over their competitor reviewed earlier in June though both were fine.
We really enjoyed ourselves here. The owners are very nice and run a good place. He is always around and takes care of people well. The site itself was adequate. They do a good job of spacing units so that you don't feel too close together. The grass is nice but the pock base was squishy making it very difficult to level to RV. Once I got it level, the ground settled overnight and we were a little out by morning. It was OK but could be overcome with a little work. Power started out fine but as the weekend came, bringing more guests, the voltage dropped enough to shut us down several times. It only happened one night for about four hours so it was not too bad. I brought it to the attention of the owner who explained the situation and promised to get it improved though there was nothing he could do that night. I believe he will have it handled. Hospitality was super. There are more seasonal than transient sites but the "locals" have been coming for years and love the place. Everything is well cared for. Even the locals were inquiring about where we were from and if all was going well. It is a nice place. I really waffled between an 8 and a 9 but decided upon the 9 just because we like the people there so much.
We were greeted in a very friendly manner and received a lot of good info about the local area (Don't miss the Tidal Bore). Asked for 30 amp service to save a couple of bucks and found it was same price as 50. Hmmm! Was told Wi-Fi was $5 for three days and we were just overnight so don't need it. They told me it was available free in the club house. Club house was small building furnished somewhat like a den with chairs and a desk. Did not try the Internet. Was led to a nice enough spot. No shade but well maintained. Plenty of trash cans and close to the adequate bath and laundry facility. It was level but the gravel tracks weren't all that well done. Grass was well maintained and electrical was fine. The campground is close to a good, not cheap, local grocery with good baked goods and fresh veggies, etc. We did not eat in the local area. As a one-nighter this place is fine. It appears they really have to do some work on the Wi-Fi. Other residents reported it as poor to spotty. We would stay overnight again but it is not like there is a lot of local choice. With Wi-Fi improvement it would be an 8, or even a 9 for overnight.
We absolutely enjoyed everything about this park. Sure, it would be better with electric but, if you like base camping, this is a great place. The view of Casco Bay is wonderful. You can pull straight in so your windshield offers a great view. Sites are spacious and two sites share a trash can. The bath house is small but clean and well maintained. The camping area if separated from the day-use area and is family oriented. Several walking trails are available. The two cap host we encountered were quite friendly and helpful. They do have struck rules about generator use but they are fair and should be quite suitable. We would come back and spend a week here easily. It is a great spot to cruise the local area. If shopping is your thing, you are just 15, or so, minutes from Freeport with LL Bean, dozens of outlets and good food choices.
The spot are close together which could be a problem except the views and area are beautiful I would recommend you try it if in the area. It is on the "Sleepy" side of Acadian National Park and only a few minutes away. It is about an hour to the main site and Bar Harbor. All hookups are new and included in the price. No cable that I was aware of though I did not look or ask. We were too busy. Power is excellent and never gave us a problem. WiFI was very good for us. Not fast but it did never seem to have a problem. The managers are eager to help and keep the place spotless. There is not currently a bathroom or laundry. Roger is trying to work on that. All sites appear to be flat. As opposed to most parks, you'll be asked if you want the view to be out your front window or out your awning. That will depend upon the site and may mean pulling in forward or backing in. All part of the service.
Review on AllStays seemed nice so we booked an overnight stay on our trip. We were given alternate directions on phone because of low hanging trees on the GPS route. Thank goodness for that. Even with the improved directions we hit leaves and branches about seven times but no damage. The campground is in the middle of nowhere so would never use for an overnight again. When we arrived we were offered two spots to choose from. After a tight tour around the campground we went back to office as both were really not very level. The gentleman said to my wife, "Oh, you are in the ginormous rig." We are 35' feet, hardly ginormous in the motorhome world. He told her about a couple other sites, both of which were fine. We had a great night. Electrical (30 amp) was fine, water fine. Did not use sewer but hookup was convenient. The staff was quite nice though they should have warned about the lack of big rig facilities. Area was quite rural and very full with campers having a great time. Lots of four wheelers. Lots of families. Lots of long term residents. Several of the long termers had really improved their lots with decks and cookers and tables. If you are looking for a longer stay with a fifth wheel or a camper, this would really be nice - certainly a four or five. I could receive no Wi-Fi but did not ask about details. Bathrooms were older but pretty clean and adequate. We were really concerned about the noise from the carts and four Wheelers but by bedtime all was nice. Evening was quiet. There was even a wedding that day along with a reception. We walked by the area while to reception was going on and thought the music was a bit loud until we realized the door was open. When the door shut, we could barely hear it. I guess I have a bit of a problem with campgrounds that want to be everything to all people. They should have let us know about the tightness of the spots. Our slot was a pull-through but we had to back out to keep from running over short stumps. I guess that is why I chose a three instead of a four. We enjoyed the people and the place but the initial hassle was not worth it.
We really appreciate the clean and well equipped park. The sites are a bit close together but are well maintained on a regular basis. Lawns are mowed, bathrooms cleaned, and garbage picked up just as you would want it to be. Many sites are seasonal residents but that takes nothing from it. All units are clean and modern. I can't say enough good about the friendly staff and owners. They went out of their way to make this a nice place and intend upon keeping it that way. I certainly recommend your staying here for any amount of time your visit brings you this way. Unfortunately, the local area leaves a little to be desired. A bit shaggy in the beach areas and we were not impressed with eating choices. This Beach Rose is a 10, the local area is not.
Plenty of room on the sites. Well taken care of. Very clean restrooms. Very quite considering it is just off the Pigeon Forge tourist area. I would not hesitate to stay here again . In fact, most other places should learn from this one. Internet was very good. Site was pretty level and had barely adequate parking for my Honda Fit. There were sites for larger units, just make sure you check ahead. ONE MAJOR complaint. The two week reservation cancellation policy is absurd and we would not have stayed if there had any doubt. We made reservations two nights before arriving. Many campgrounds are taking this attitude and will, overall, lose our business. I traveled on the road for very many years and never had something like that except during special event times.
We stayed one night in a 35' Class A with a tow. We fit in the space and we were level. All hook ups were easy and well located. We had a nice table outside though the wind was so strong we could barely stand up. The camp is plain with gravel sites and grass around sitting areas. The staff was very nice and welcoming. They obviously take pride in their business and appreciate those who stay with them. We would surely stay again. It is not a deluxe place but it is very comfortable. It is easy to get to and close to a good restaurant.
You'll notice the owners of this facility do not promise anything they don't deliver. They are not a "Resort" and don't make like they want to be one. The spaces are gravel but level and clean. Connections are good and well placed. WiFi worked well for the nine days we spent there. Semi-private, key operated bathrooms were always clean and cared for. The laundry was large enough a seemed to be all relatively new machines. There is a nice dog park just a few feet away - even has doggie bags. A great place to stroll or exercise. Not too crowded or too empty. They are dog friendly, but, I do wish some of the owners of dogs would clean up after them better. We found no shortage of bags and disposal spots yet many chose not to use them in the park area. We had no problem in the camp area. Some spaces are fully long/full time but that was fine with us. We met nice people each day, I highly recommend you use this park if you want to be close in and convenient to the big city. If that is not what you want, go somewhere else. We had family in the area and enjoyed being close. We were close to downtown and shopping. We had a great visit. Finally, the office staff and maintenance staff were always pleasant and helpful. They don't always sit in the office; they take short walks or help residents with problems. They were always right back and willing to help. More like being at home than being in a commercial park. Thanks to them, for making our stay better.
When we drove our RV down the tiny driveway, I have to confess I wondered if we had made a mistake. Nope! Greeted warmly as we drove in, directed capably into our site, told to check in when we got all things squared away, met four neighbors in the first 15 minutes. The cabins are very nice and well maintained. Some are right on the water, some are 20 feet off. RV sites are small, but nicely kept. We have a 35' MH and I would be worried if we were over 38'. Deducted one point for that. If you are concerned, ask in advance. They will tell you if it will work or not. They stay full and have no reason to fib. We only got in because someone cancelled right before we called. You'll see there are several annual customers here - they come back and forth all season. Those units have customized their spaces and all seemed clean and friendly. There are some rental RVs that looked to be in great shape though I did not look inside any. We would certainly stay here again if in the area. Rocky Mountain National Park is a couple miles away so access is simple. Laundry in clean and works well. Restrooms are well maintained and clean. Try it, you'll like it!
Stayed one night. If we had children with us it might be one notch higher. Quiet enough and site was comfortable. Told it was a 75' drive though, but that must have been to center of street. With 35' MH and Honda Fit we took up every inch and had a bit of trouble getting awing out. Tree pruning would help. Staff was courteous. My wife called on phone for reservation and it was like pulling teeth to find out what was available. Restrooms were marginally clean and there were two bath houses for a lot of sites. Men's facility had one commode and one shower. I bet it was fun to watch when that got filled up. Kids would like the activities if there parents would be willing to fork out money for each. Seemed to be fairly steep, but activities seemed ok. Food area was sketchy to me, but we were not there to eat. Cost was too high for what we received for a one night stand. I would look other places, but I think there may not be much around.
Left West Yellowstone and stayed here at recommendation of the folks at our park there. It is a different, but good, experience. This park is not as nice, or expensive, but it does a very good job of justifying its cost structure. Two minor irritants did not spoil the fun. First, no credit cards are accepted and I was not told that before we arrived (phone reservation). Second, the wast hookup is at the very back of the site and a bit of a problem hooking up. For one night we did not try. The rest of the story is good. Friendly check in and decent assistance backing into the tight site. Tight because of a nice shade tree. Plenty of room for slides and awning. We were not sure it the shade tree was a benefit or not during the nasty thunderstorm that night. No rain, just wind and lightning. Bathrooms are well used but very clean. We had no problem with road noise. Cable was fine as was Wi-Fi. It is close to everything. Very nice place to stay.
We had a very nice stay here. The staff was courteous and very pleasant. They helped as best they could at all times. Our site was level gravel though we had a small amount getting level and leaving room for the tow. Connections were satisfactory though wifi was marginal most of the time. Thank goodness for Verizon. Bathrooms were heavily used and a bit short on space. The did a good job of cleaning. Do NOT stay in either of the sites next to the bath house. Tooooooooo close.
As far as the facilities, this is a very nice park. Nicer in some areas than others. We stayed three nights in the first group of sites. Next to office, pool and laundry. Most sites are quite level. Ours was OK but the motorhome was low in front so we could get tow in comfortably. Utilities worked well. WiFi was good. You have to register each device but that turned out to be no problem. Considering we were right next to the entrance, it was still pretty quiet. Planes overhead were not a real problem unless you are a real light sleeper. Bathrooms were very clean but only adequate in size and number. To be such a nice place, I was amazed to find out how non-friendly the staff was. I made the original reservation by phone and they told me that I would hear back within 2 days. When I reminded her I would BE there in two days she said, OK, we'll let you know if there is a problem. Arrival to a full office of staff and not a spoken "Hello" to be heard. A question about how to find a local landmark almost started an argument among the staff. I "loved" the notice on the front desk something to the tune of, "Make sure your bill is correct because there will be no refunds or credits if it is not". I was asked to sign that I had read the brochure before I even had one. AND, the rig washing rules were different from online. No big deal but just makes me wary to watch out for problems. Received the parking assignment and was sent along my way with no thank you or offer of assistance. It was the coldest atmosphere I have seen. That griping out of my system, the park is clean and comfortable. The front seems more comfortable than the back. There was supposed to be an exercise room but it always was locked. We did not ask for a key. The small pond in the back smelled like sewer and that would have been miserable.
I will have to write this before I figure out what the rating should be. Negatives first. The reservation system is from the last century. Download application from Internet, mail it in with a check and wait a week for a reply. We reserved early and it worked well enough since we started very early. No sewer at the sites but there is a convenient dump station onsite. Bathrooms were pretty heavily used and a bit dirty. BUT, most of the reason for the dirt was the wonderful access to the tide pools. More on that later. There is a no-alcohol policy. My wife flaunted her nightly wine using a clear glass and no one mentioned the flagrant violation. Final negative is more odd than negative. I screwed on the hose and turned it and nothing came out. You'll have to get down on your hands and knees, open the cover and operate the water from the main valve. Not a major issue but a bit strange. Now, the good stuff. Our campsite was level and roomy enough. Plenty of room for the four slides and parking the tow was easy enough. Almost all sites can see the water. Tents were across the road from us which allowed our unrestricted view. The access to the tide pools is great, though steep rocks might be an issue for those with problems. The tide schedule is posted and we had great fun. The camp staff is very limited but was friendly and actively taking care of the facility. The camp was full when we were there with half the sites space available only. Lots of kids riding bikes but we had no noise problems and everyone seems to have gotten along well. We stayed four or five nights and had a good time. Weather was foggy and cool but OK. I would go back if in that area. I really enjoyed the closeness to the Hoh Rain Forest. We did the Hurricane Ridge trip and the trip to the actual rain forest area. What an education. Spectacular views and access. Now that I have listed the pros and cons I guess I will choose an "8". Probably a "9" except for the reservation system. You'll need to plan ahead.
The park is beautiful and the individual sites are large enough. My main problems were two: They simply pack too many people into each loop with the loops too close together. I am sure that is an economics thing. Our back-side neighbors were right next to us with no bushes in between. Two-way roads were very close. Speeders and bicycles do not mix. The bathrooms were poorly maintained - ladies' room was out of toilet paper for a good bit of the time. Otherwise, the facilities were satisfactory.
To be accurate about this park, I would really have to give it two reviews. We stayed in one of the six riverside sites and they are beautiful. Parking is difficult, but if you relax and let their guide give instruction, you'll get in just fine. Our 35' was tight, but, we got in. Neighbor on right has a 40 and he made it also. To get out, you'll have to back out and turn around. Again, they have a guide to do it. These sites are level and very clean. A bit tight for the tow, but it works out. Staff is quite pleasant and helpful and I have seen none of the pickiness described below. They are having a bit of a problem with some power fluctuations that kicked a couple of people offline for a very short time. They are addressing that and I am sure it will be handled completely. It is a winding road that leads into the campground, but it was no problem towing. Next time, I would likely detach out on 101 before hand just to make it easier once we got here. I do not consider that a problem. The other review would be for the rest of the sites. All are adequate and differ in size capability. I would rank them as an 8 with no real objections. They are pet friendly. Our neighbors are back for about their eighth extended trip. The river is beautiful and you have good access. Water is low this year due to poor rainfall, but it is still great. Took the Rogue River jet boat tour yesterday and had a good time. Staff will arrange it for you and the boat picks you up at the lodge next door. The Oregon fires have let a little smoke into the area, but we have not found that uncomfortable at all. THANKS to the staff for a fine stay - leaving tomorrow. Gold River is a tiny town, but seems to have decent facilities and pretty good food.
If you are not going to spend a lot of time during the day in the CG, this place is just fine. The sites are very tight, but all concrete. Oddly, with all the concrete, they are barely level. Some sites do have wooden boards to help you level yourself. Hookups were fine. They advertise as dog friendly and they are. The reason I said they were "Not" friendly is that the dog walking area is in an alley behind their property. It is weeded and overgrown. It also seems to be used for short cuts to houses from the road. I did not think it was very safe. There was a security gate at the back, but the lock worked sometimes and sometimes not. The housing area was clearly marked with "Private Road - keep Out" signs. Security codes to get into laundry, baths and back gate. A pain but worked OK. Man working the desk was pretty lazy and a bit grumpy. Everyone else was very nice. I would not go out of my way to stay here, but if it was good for your plans, it is good.
This was a very nice, simple place. Site was level and had enough room (35' Class A with tow). Check-in was simple and very pleasant. Lady welcomed us like long lost friends and escorted us to the site. We were just there one night, but would easily use it for a several day stay. Bathrooms were just OK, but usable. I think we were nearest the less desirable one, but it was OK. Pay hot shower, Ten cents per minute. Worked fine. I do recommend it pretty highly.
I have to be careful and say we reserved a site very early and were given a very nice place overlooking the trees and water. Site was barely large enough for rig (35) and tow BUT the grassy area was very nice and large. We were close to bath and in good spot for dog walking. As this is a large park, there are several (many) sites we would not have enjoyed very much. Too close and busy. The Wi-Fi was fine the first night, not so the second. They include this bold warning on their brochure to the effect that if you want a good Wi-Fi pay for it. You are getting it free and if it works, that is fine. If not, you are getting what you paid for it. Staff was all very courteous. They helped us out when we made a dumb mistake, but all ended well.
This is a fine place for an overnight or short stay. Our site was level and clean. Laundry was a little shabby, but not dirty. Baths were fine. Nothing great, but served our purpose well. Overnight and gone.
Very clean and well maintained. Friendly staff. Long way to walk for pet area and warning signs all over the place. Threats to tow your RV if you leave dog inside and someone complains. As nice as everybody was, I suspect they have had bad experiences and want to make it clear. Sites were all clear and power was good. Sewer connections are in a bit of a bad area for our coach, but we made it OK. Bathrooms were clean and well maintained. Stock your fridge and freezer at local butcher shop alongside. Wonderful choices, decent prices and great taste.
There is something for everyone at FCF. We happened to be there for the Spring Wildflower Pilgrimage. Hikes were available for all ages and physical capabilities. All the staff were quite friendly and made an effort to make the stay better. My Mother-in-law stayed in the lodge and had a fine time. We stayed in CG - B. Our particular lot was not very level, but it was large and clean and well maintained. Cut firewood was available on the ground and split wood was available at the ranger station ($3.50). Food was good at the Lodge - Sunday brunch buffet. Not fancy but quite affordable. Manager did a good job of making Gluten Free food available for our grandson. The park is beautiful. It is well kept and has lots to do.
This is a great one or two night transition campground. Office staff was very nice and facilities were clean. To truly rate this accurately, I would have to rate twice. The larger part of the campground would be a 7 - adequate but less well kept. The sites were small concrete pads with dirt/sand and full of leaves. OK for a night if weather would co-operate. The nicer part of the park is really nice. but no one told us about it until we looked at two other sites and were dissatisfied. It costs about $4 more but was worth it. Concrete pads, pull throughs, and nice table and chairs (aluminum). Wi-Fi was strong and reliable. Hookups were very well located. Dog friendly and plenty of space for nice walks. Oak trees are beautiful, and I am sure would be shady in the Summer heat. The lady in the office when we arrived apologized for not telling us, saying she was just back from vacation herself and not thinking straight yet. I liked her and she went out of her way to help us. The other lady working at a different time was equally nice. The young man caring for the camp stopped and offered any help we needed and was very pleasant.
The owners are very friendly and accommodating. Though the campground does state "Adults Only" there are provisions for grandchildren if not left unattended. We did notice a cable wire at our site but did not use it. Owners are doing a lot to make the site better with new trails and more sites. I would not rate this a fancy place at all, but it was comfortable and friendly. I would gladly stay here again. Our granddaughter was having surgery nearby and they were very eager to be helpful in any way. Our site was level enough and there was a deck right outside the RV door. It would have helped if the electrical box was a little further to the side as my slide came to about 1/2" from it. That was my only complaint. I do not believe restroom and shower were available.
