It was just OK. Nothing special. The sites around the 1/2 acre pond were very, very tight. The location of the shared power post meant that you were awning to awning to your neighbor. Might be ok if you were camping with family/friends, but awnings 10' from each other and fire pits 10' from each other didn't work for me. The road coming in was rough, the power voltage was rather low (110-115v) and parking for "TOAD" was less than great. The advertised cable TV was an amplified digital signal of poor quality which included 10 channels and not even all major networks. The bath house was small and dated. The dump station had a raised box about 10" off the ground making it difficult to drain your tanks if you have a low discharge fitting. The park was clean, the Wi-Fi was good, but the deficiencies in the park force me to give this place a mediocre rating. Nothing special enough here to go back to.

Love the rustic feel, large sites, and convenience to the Rail Trail. Fall is a great time for the Cape and we'll return again to enjoy all that the area has to offer. Nice owners. Well kept. Limited number of big rig sites.

We really enjoyed this campground. The most pleasant owners one could ask for. Quiet, well run facility. Let me emphasize the "QUIET". I love kids but it was SO nice to not have any of the little ones there. Without a doubt, we will be back.

Arrived to a friendly and smiling staff. (Good first impression). Was given the choice of a number of spots to check out as to the one I wanted (I like that). Early in season but quiet except for some road noise but not a problem. Very clean however there are a couple of old seasonal/fulltime "eyesores" on sites. Paved interior roads. Site size was pretty good in some areas of park. Would return again if I needed access to Toronto (This was the closest park OPEN at this time of year to Toronto so it worked well as a base). There was a pool and playground but not sure of the "draw" of other activities in the area.

Signage directing you into the park is poor. One obscure sign near main road easy to miss. (Thanks for GPS). Probably my fault but I never asked if they were a Good Sam Park. However, they never asked if I was a Good Sam member either. Most places have the courtesy to ask. There were no Good Sam signs that I noticed anywhere at the facility. That was a $28 discount/mistake that I'll never see. There was confusion upon arrival as to the power requirements I needed and I probably paid for 50 amp service although I only needed 30 amp. I was originally booked for a 30 amp site (#169) but that was changed between booking in August and arrival date. It was nice that I was brought to the site by an attendant. He was immediately reminded by my neighbor and it was pointed out to him that the dog messes from a previous camper still had not been picked up. The front office was also notified. (They allowed a camper with 5 dogs on the site. You have got to be kidding). When I left 5 days later, the crap was still here. This is not acceptable. For $58.00 a night, the campground management should be ashamed. Sites are small with many older long term rigs scattered about. It appears that there is some type of self contained treatment facility in the park next to the main office. Beware if you're in the area of sites 235, 236, 257, 258, because there was a constant stench coming from those tanks. Sewer connections are a long reach for some rigs (makes sure you have and extra 15 feet and a coupling), and cement patio pads are not situated well for most rigs. General appearance is OK and the park was quiet (except for the 5 AM whistle blowing train that runs adjacent to the property). For those rates, I would expect a lot more.

I was not impressed with this place. Close to Casino's but for $37.00 (off season and GS discount) this facility is way overpriced. The sites were tiny, rocky and unlevel. (My 3" boards couldn't compensate for the 8" drop over the length of my vehicle). The inner roads were rocky. Nice store, gated entry and kids playground. Two pools and mini golf but out of season when we went there. We wouldn't go back for that rate and the little site we were on. I had more space and privacy in the Foxwoods parking lot.

An older park but well kept. Larger rigs are put in the front lower area of the campground, a more open area. Some of these lower sites had sewer and some were satellite friendly. The back area, for smaller rigs, PU's, tents, is a gem. Lots of secluded spots in the woods. Perhaps some issues with levelness of sites due to hilly terrain. No pool but within a short bike ride or car ride to a great family beach. Beach parking passes available for registered campers. We will stay here again when we make our next trip to the Gloucester area.

We spent several days here in February. It is not a fancy park but it was clean, quiet and everyone was very friendly. The sites were not huge but in southern FL not many places have mega sites. Lots of seasonals but most everyone seemed well kept giving the compact surroundings a reasonably pleasant look. Restaurant and store on the premises which was convenient. Other stores and restaurants within 1/2 mile. The marina was at far end of property and only occasionally did we hear the roar of the motors. Interior road was paved and some sites (probably seasonals) had concrete pads. About 1/2 hour drive to Marco Island/Naples area which was convenient. If I were looking to stay near the Everglades again, I would return for a few days stay. Again, not alot to do at the campground but not a bad base camp for the area.

Of the 130 or so sites, 40 are available for transient campers including tenters. This place looked more like a shabby trailer park than a campground. We were told we had 30 amp service and even though we plugged into a 30 type plug it was on a 20 amp breaker. The camper in a 5'r next to me was told he had 50 amps and also only had a 20 amp breaker. The owner said he would "check it out" and "didn't know anything about a problem". Sure it wasn't the first time. Sewer connection was 12" off the ground so this created a flow problem when dumping(A poor design). Sewer gas smells were prevalent. Gravel/dirt interior roads, fairly smooth. Gravel/ wooded sites, mostly level. I would not advise big rigs going there. No pull thru's and lots of low trees. Too many barking dogs and foul mouth teens added to the misery of this place. Wouldn't return here. Too many other nice campgrounds in New Hampshire.

This park was pretty much an over night stop for us but it would be a fun place for a family. Lots of activities on site such as driving range, mini golf, river activities, etc. Bike/walking trail runs through the park and connects to a wonderful network of well maintained trails in and around the city of Fredericton. Park is pretty open but that suited us just fine as it was satellite friendly. Big Rig friendly although there were no real "Pull thrus" but being pretty open, no trees to navigate around. I would return for more river and biking fun.

I was pleasantly surprised with this park. We went not really knowing what to expect and happened to pull in after hours in the dark. One negative was that the attendant on the phone told us the park was 4-5 miles "down the road" from a certain intersection. It happened to be 2. 5 miles "down the road" so needless to say we drove by the entrance and then had to find a spot to turn around on some narrow, dark roads. But things got better. Our site location was waiting pinned to the board, at the office. Map directions were clear and we found our spot quickly. We had a very large and private spot. Site was level and clean. On our 2nd day we asked for a late check out and were accommodated with "no problem" and no charge. Very nice people at the desk. Campground wasn't too crowded when we were there and was very quiet and pleasant. Quick access to the CC rail trail. Would definitely stay there again.

I've stayed there twice on trips to and from Florida. Easy on, easy off 95. Big rig friendly. Perhaps, since my last stop in February '05 the owners have cleaned up a couple of "eye sore" seasonal rigs. If they did, the place would have a totally different look. Unfortunately, on one stay, I pulled into a site that an inconsiderate pet owner had been there before me. You get the picture. I guess I could blame the owners for not inspecting but it really boils down to "people" who just don't care. It's not the first time that dog owners have left things behind. Besides that, everything else was fine. Friendly and accommodating. I'll stop there again on my trip south in Feb '06.

Nice park for what we went there for. Lots of space, fishing and satellite friendly for Sunday NFL package. Nice people, well kept, rules that keep things in order. Recently added new electrical so they may have some 50 amp sites but I would check. No sewer hookups but they have a dump station and wagon service. Wooded area mostly seasonals but camp sites available in woods. Visit their web site. Would go back for more relaxing but also close enough to other Maine attractions.

Great location to start or end a trip thru the Cabot Trail. Friendly people, reasonable sized sites, and close to activities. Some of the smaller sites for PU's and smaller TT's seemed to be somewhat sloping. (I saw lots of blocks for leveling). Nice place and well kept.

The campground had a very nice view of the ocean but that is one of the few positives I can report. Help at check-in was ok but the young lady did not really have a good feel for the available sites. The majority of sites were seasonal and gave a trailer park look to the place. Full wooden decks, extra refrigerators outside, clotheslines, etc, etc... There is not one level site that has any type of hook up. My biggest concern was the extremely low voltage (consistantly under 100v). The "Sandy Beach" is a stretch. Yes it sits on the water but except for a little sandy stretch on land, the water was a bed of stones, rocks and boulders. Too many barking dogs added to a less than satisfying stay.

Wonderful view. Across the road lies the ocean and quite a few sites have an unobstructed view. The park is flat and has an open setting (satellite friendly) however, the sites are small. Everyone is packed in like a Wal-Mart parking lot. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. St. Andrews is a beautiful quaint little village. Overall, not a bad place, but a bit pricy for what was here.

Very clean and well kept CG. Sites were not huge but most were well laid out, level, with privacy. Friendly staff with nice store. Sometimes KOA's get a bad rap but I thought this was a nice place. The only negative that I can report was a dismal cable offering. There were no more that 5 or 6 cable stations that were available. I never asked whether there was something wrong with my cable or if that was the norm. Had an off-season rate so it might be a bit pricy there but it is New York, not too far from the Big Apple so perhaps it's not that unreasobanle.

Stayed just after park opened up in spring. Staff very friendly. Wasn't quite the "Mountain Vista" I had in mind. A campground on the side of a hill, hardly made me feel like I was in the Pocono's. Too many seasonals, some very old, took away from the rustic setting. Wasn't a bad place, but would look for another CG the next time I was in the area.

Nice road into CG. Staff friendly at registration. A variety of sites and most were of fairly good size. Very quiet when we were there, but was told the place fills up in July/August. Close to North Conway and walking distance to shops/restaurants, but far enough off the road not to hear or see the activity of Route 16. Staff took us up river for some canoeing (rental) on short notice. Paved center road and some fairly smooth dirt roads within park good enough to bike ride. Sites very level, most with some shade. I would go there again.
