Great little KOA which is very well run. Just about a mile or so from hwy. Plenty of gas stations, restaurants, etc convenient to park. We actually ordered delivery from the local Italian restaurant which was good. Nice camp store and well run office. The escort to our pull thru site made sure everything was working correctly for us. Site was level and long with plenty of room to stay hooked up. Easy in and out. Park has a high pressure RV wash area for a fee which was nice since it was love bug season. Nice 35 acre lake with, ducks, geese, and beautiful swans. The front area of the park is transient sites with seasonal or annual sites on the back area. Some reviews complained that there was a lot of traffic in and out and speeding thru the transient site area. We did not observe that at all. Garbage was picked up daily at the site. We would use this park again for both overnight and even longer stays to sight see Savannah. It was about 20 minutes outside Savannah's historical area.
This is the only campground convenient to Monticello. Follow the park's website directions to it to avoid traffic. This park is about 11 miles from the highway. The road to it is a two lane paved road with 55 mile speed limit which was way too fast for us to drive our fifth wheel on this somewhat curvy road. This park has one of the strangest layouts we have seen. The dump station is right on the side of the main drive. You have to park on the main road and walk down to office to register. Registration was organized and painless. We had a pull-through site which had a short steep downhill approach into the site. The electric hookup was towards the front of the site which would have been a problem for us if we did not carry a 50 AMP 25' extension with us since our electric connection is at the back of our RV. Only second time we needed to us this extension. To exit this site you had to make a tight left turn which inconveniently had a tree right at the edge of the road. Lucky for us, site in front of us that led to a road out was not occupied, so we pulled through that site to get out as it did not have any trees obstructing the turn. Several sites had really steep approaches into the site. Roads through this park were tight to navigate with a larger rig.
Park is a little off the main hwy, but the road is manageable. These were last minute reservations so we could not get a 50 AMP site, but we got a nicely wooded pull thru next to the bathrooms. Site had cable which was a necessity due to tree cover. Bathrooms were clean. There was a nice office, camp store, and wine tasting area. Good for an overnight stop. We would use it again. The only downside is they require a 2 night stay on the weekend.
Nice family campground located in Ellsworth. Full hookup 50 AMP, water, sewer, and cable sites that were nicely maintained and level. Park is very treed with a state park feel to it. On site owners that are helpful and friendly. We stayed a few days here while waiting for a new refrigerator for our unit. The park was recommended to us by Ellsworth RV as it was near the shop. They are great to work with. The only negative to this the park was that it was a little off the beaten path if you were in the area to sight see Acadia. There are several seasonal sites, but they were all very neatly maintained.
We originally made reservations for an oceanfront site, but the one available was a tight fit for our RV so we opted for one of the Select pull thrus. Rate reflects that site classification. This is in our opinion, truly the only big rig park in the area that has full amenities and is on the Island Explorer route. Both the back in sites down towards the water and even the Select Pull Thrus had a view of the water when you were outside. Site and park was beautifully maintained. The laundry facilities, bathroom and shower rooms were excellent. Check in procedure was well organized with a nice office and camp store. Personnel were helpful and professional. The seasonal sites are away from the transient sites and are neatly maintained as well.
Nice state park. Limited big rigs sites available. Big rigs need to be in the field area which has fairly large sites that are open. Rangers are nice to work with. Bathroom and shower rooms are clean, but maybe a little dated. No laundry facilities. Mount Battie and many hiking trails available in the park including an area located on the water across the road from the main park. Nice food take out just outside the park. It is about a 5 minute drive to Camden. Would definitely stay here again.
Worse check-in experience ever. We pulled into campground driveway and waited a little over an hour to get to the office to check in. They were unbelievably slow checking in the incoming units and they let some people who ignored the line go ahead of the long line of us who were patiently waiting. Beware the need for your pet's vaccination records. I don't think that is a bad thing, but they will not process your site assignment until you can present it. We changed site after a couple of days in order to lengthen our stay and had to go back to our RV to re-supply them with the records again even though they had the record info in their computer. Also, pets cannot be left alone in RV, so you need to make boarding arrangements for them when you are out sightseeing. This is due to the fear that there might be a power outage and since the sites sit in the open blazing sun, your pets ay not survive the outage. Sites okay - angled back ins with fairly sandy ground if you do not line up correctly. Streets are suppose to be one way, but it was not enforced causing a few issues with rigs trying to back in and cars zipping in and out. Dump station was a two lane station, so although it was busy on the way out, it was not too bad. However, there is not a pipe to stick your sewer fitting into as there is just an open drain slot to ay your sewer hose by. Beach is accessible from park by walking to day area to get around seawall that protects the river inlet. No swimming is allowed on riverside. You need to be on the oceanside to swim which is accessible in day area.
Be sure to follow the directions on the campground's website to get to this park. Your GPS will put you on Beebe Rd which is not big rig friendly. We called last minute for a site and it was the same time as their Halloween weekend so they were sold out. The hosts were nice enough to let us rent the owner's site next to the old barn across the street from the park. Honestly, if we are in the area again, we would prefer that site to the sites in the park. The park was booked and very crowded so a nice quiet site in the park was not a possibility. The park does do a fabulous Halloween blow out. Music, costume party and haunted ride with multiple sites decorated. The children in the park had a great time. Nice pool and swimming lake, rec center and snack bar on site. The laundry room was neat and clean although a little small. One of the better campstores we have seen with a nice office and professional hosts.
We had a beautiful premium backin site on the lake. Wonderful view and beautiful park. Roads in park were easy to maneuver around. Drive into park was a little more challenging. Make sure that you do not go into Fort Niagara State Park which is adjacent to the campground to try to get to the campground. Fort Niagara is awesome to visit afterwards though. Book early as there are limited big rig sites available. We were in site 232 which was next to the shared water faucet, so it was convenient. Only negatives about the site is there is a steep drop off when you back into the site and a fairly large willow that you need to be careful of. Be aware there is very limited over air TV channels available and limited Verizon signal. Bathrooms and showers were new and very nice and clean. The town of Youngstown is charming and the park is about a 10 minutes drive to Niagara Falls and the Rainbow Bridge to Canada.
Well managed checkin. We had one of the deluxe pull thru sites. Great view of the lake from the hill where the sites are located. Site was easy in and out, level and had clear view for satellite. Very clean and manicured park with a manned security gate. The bathrooms and showers were great. There is an area for ping pong and corn hole tossing. The lighthouse is cool. They also have boat rentals available, but we did not have the time this trip to check that out. Not far from Summersville for supplies and a great little Mexican restaurant suggested by the park. Also convenient to the River Gorge area. This park would be our choice to stay in again when we are in area.
Really nice hosts. We had a large tree branch fall on top of our trailer in transit. When we arrived we asked if they had a ladder to get the limb off. The gentleman who escorted us to our site grabbed a ladder and climbed right up on our roof and removed it for us. Nicely kept park. We came in with last minute reservations so no full hookup sites were available. We ended up in a water and 50 AMP site only next to the laundry room. The only two negatives were that we could not get a satellite signal due to tree cover and we were charged the same rate as the full hookup sites.
