My first 10 rating and this is the new Gold Standard for the others. This park is four years old and designed by an RVer. The majority of the sites are pull through, the back-in ones are equally as long. All sites are concrete with picnic table, grill, FHU and a separate faucet for washing the RV and honest to goodness grass. There are no tall trees to block the satellite signal. Not a speed bump in the park to jostle your rig over. No tents allowed - no exception, it is truly dedicated to RV's only. There is a small conference room and a game room with two pool tables. There is an ice machine. I did not use the laundry here, so can't comment on it. There is a large shelter with outside kitchen counter tops, sink and grills with several picnic tables. There were additional fire pits with seating around them as well as a large fireplace in the shelter with bench seating. They have a dock with paddleboats. The horseshoe pit and shuffleboard are located next to it. Each site is slightly offset and has a row of bushes to provide some privacy. We were fortunate to book early and get a site on the water and stayed here for a week. There is an RV mechanic who lives nearby available for help and we got assistance with a problem we were having with our jacks. The staff is nice and provides you with a nice supply of things to see and do in the area. It's quiet, pretty and I'm going to miss this place!
Staff is friendly and efficient. They lead you to the site when arriving. The gate is kept locked all the time for security and there are light posts at night. Most sites have concrete pads to park on. Laundry room is large with rolling carts, two large tables for folding and outdoor clotheslines. The internet was very good. Lots are shady, which is nice but not so good for satellite TV reception. We were parked near the bathrooms and I observed someone coming over at least once a day to do the cleaning, but have not used them ourselves. The park is overall very quiet, there's a little road noise, but minimally. No trains or planes were heard.
When we first pulled into the area we wondered what we had gotten ourselves into, but this was due to the shambles of a business you pass on the way to the campground. Once you enter the campground property things are extremely clean. The staff was nice and helpful. The lots were large with full hook ups and good strong internet. Things were quiet at night and the location is convenient for seeing the sights nearby. We full-time in our RV with two cats.
The park is located close enough to allow you to walk into town to explore and shop. We stayed here two nights with the grandkids and they liked using the indoor pool that is next to the campground (small fee for daily use). We full-time in our RV with two cats.
This is our home for two months in the summer when we return to the old stomping grounds. There is no sewer hookups and the Internet only works if you're in the office. Even our Wi-Fi Ranger couldn't pull it in. The sites are large and grassy and the birds are abundant. If you set out feeders you'll have lots of them. The area is prone to flooding in the spring so you want to avoid the lower areas at all costs. The pump out service is $25 a pop if you don't have your own hauler. It's quiet during the week and the weekends can get very congested and noisy. But there isn't much in the area that is close to the city and it is affordable. We enjoy the wildlife and seeing the river nearby. We live full-time in our RV with two cats.
This is our home base for a couple of months each summer to visit family. The staff is incredible - friendly and helpful. The park is friendly with many people forming long lasting relationships. We are able to have our mail sent here, something not a lot of parks allow. There is an area with various animals such as llama,sheep, emu,chickens and a horse that the children enjoy feeding. With the ponds on the edge of the camp there are always sandhill crane and Canada geese nearby, which we enjoy. The lake is very shallow and great for smaller kids. They have a swing set out in the water for them to play on. There are bikes and canoes for rent. There is a large covered pavilion for gatherings. The atmosphere is friendly and relaxed and yet you have the city within minutes for shopping and entertainment. We live full-time in our RV with our two cats.
We stayed here for a week while visiting the area. Our site had a view of the river with geese, ducks and swans. The site could have used a bit of a clean up, but was okay. We paid the $10 for Internet for a week and it worked fine. We stayed here for a week and live full-time in our RV with two cats.
This was extremely well organized - they had check in windows with more than one person to assist. We only stayed for the one night as we were passing through but the pool looked nice and they had an attractive display of items for sale in the office/store. We live in our RV with two cats.
I know this park had a lot of bad reviews, but hey...let's be realistic here. Did you really come to this area to "enjoy" the campground experience or to see the sights the city has to offer? Yes, the price is high...everything here is. But it's convenient and safe. You can walk to the metro to get downtown without any problems. It was well lit and we never felt in any danger. Crowded and close together? You bet! But for us, it was worth it to be that close to the city sights for a lot less money than a hotel would have cost us. We had full hookups. The people in the office were very helpful and provided a folder with information on the marina and attractions nearby. They made it clear that they would be willing to help in anyway to find our way around. We only stayed two days because of the high cost in the area...we got in and saw what we wanted to see, took in a play and then skeedaddled out of there. We live in our RV with two cats and I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.
This is an offshoot of a mobile home park, with all the RVs grouped into a gravel area. There were full hook ups and concrete pads with a picnic table as well as cable TV provided. This makes it so much easier to set up than when they try to "work you in" between permanent trailers in these kind of parks. It was quiet and well lit. The owner was very nice to deal with and very relaxed. We full-time in our RV with two cats and stayed here for two nights on our journey down the east coast.
Staff was very friendly and helpful. Information was provided on attractions nearby and detailed instructions on how to get to the nearest metro to travel into the city. They have a little nature trail to walk on. Sites are good sized and everything kept clean. One of the few parks we've been at where you can set your trash and recycling out at the curb for pickup. We full-time in our RV with our two cats and spent eight days here.
What a sweet park! We had a site right where the river bends and it provided a fantastic view. The campground has a system of lights on the utility pole which is much lower than we usually see. It was much appreciated as it provides lighting for security but isn't blaring in your eyes at night. We only stayed two days and I wish we could have stayed longer to rent a canoe or kayak. There is a golf driving range right as you enter the park as well.
The check in was a bit confusing as well as the plethora of one way streets, but once we figured it out, we could see the wisdom of how they operated. The beach is within walking distance and we hiked one of their nature trails to get there. Our lot was shady and ample in size. There was a fair amount of noise from the airport nearby, but it's not like they took off every half hour.
Nice campground, very close to Acadia Park. Their system is a bit different where you go and find the site you want and then return to pay for it. A map was provided with which sites were open at the time of arrival to make this easier. The staff was friendly and helpful. The sites were nice sized.
The staff is very friendly and provides information on stores nearby that might be helpful. They also provided a $5 coupon for a local restaurant that we visited and loved the food. The sites are large with grass and concrete pads to park on. It's well maintained and there are several trash cans at the end of each row. We were able to use our Good Sam discount for the stay. We full time in our RV and this is one of the nicest parks we've visited in this area. The price was a welcome relief after coming down the east coast from Canada where everything is priced much higher.
