If you visit this park, be prepared for the fact that it is a fair distance from nearby towns. Get your groceries before you turn off the highway. There is a long approach road on gravel (which may be a deterrent to motorcyclists whose bikes aren't set up for dirt roads). As with other provincial parks, there are no serviced lots. There are several walking trails, which take you to some spectacular rocky shoreline, with interspersed beaches. Our site had a gravel and grass surface, and was quite uneven, which made for a bit of a leveling exercise. Washrooms are very clean, bright, well-appointed, and well maintained. Our dogs were welcome.

We were pleasantly surprised at the quietness, cleanliness, and attention to detail that is evident at this park. Washrooms are exceptionally clean. Well treed lots, which are spaced quite far apart. The staff clearly checked the sites in between guests. The fire pits were cleaned out and the surface was raked clean. It's also less than a 10 minute drive to LL Bean. Too bad our commitments wouldn't let us stay longer: it's a very restful campground. And dogs are welcome as well.

Several years ago we stopped in to take a look at this park, and we weren't impressed: very shabby and tired. Fast forward to last weekend. We had gotten away from home in Nova Scotia much later than planned, and at 11:00 pm we pulled into this campground more as an act of desperation. After all, it would be for only one night. There was no one at the gate house, so we entered and drove around looking for a site hoping to find a two-way hook-up. Virtually out of the dark emerged two people (owners as it turned out), and I honestly expected we would be asked to leave because they were closed. To the contrary, we were warmly greeted, and our two dogs as well! He guided us to a two-way site, offered his help with our hookup, and we settled down to a very restful night. The sites are well treed and suitably distanced from others. Our site was dead-level, which makes for a much easier setup. The following morning I checked out the amenities, and I was impressed. They have invested a lot of time, effort, and money in this site, and it is more than comfortable. We have realized, over the years, that Sunday morning is often the acid test for a campground, because the bathrooms, by this point in the weekend, are dirty and in dire need of maintenance. Not so here. The bathrooms were spotless, everything worked, and the fixtures are new. Overall, the grounds are well maintained and clear of any litter. For a campground that was (I am guessing) about two-thirds full that night, I can only say that I am impressed with this level of care. Obviously, this campground is in new hands and they intend to make a serious business of it. And a big plus: these owners are motorcycle people (he owns the local Yamaha dealership), so those on bikes will be eagerly welcomed as well. We're definitely staying here again. It's a perfect mid-way stop for our trips back and forth from Massachusetts, and I'll be stopping in with my Yamaha V-Star as well. So: clean, well-maintained, friendly, accommodating, you simply can't go wrong here.
