We were disappointed with a few things regarding this campground especially at $90 a night. They advertise free WiFi but we were only able to log on at our site (366 soundside) once in the 8 days we stayed. The office staff even said we were the first to complain that there was a problem. Funny thing was we talked to many people who had the same problem and also complained about it. The sand spurs were a big issue, our site had hundreds of dried ones and it was impossible not to track them into the camper even though we swept the pad frequently. Going barefoot was out of the question. The outdoor pool was too cold to enjoy. On the positive side, the bathrooms were big and clean and we saw great sunsets over the sound.
We really liked this campground and would return in the future. The store was very well stocked, the staff was friendly. We stayed in the back of the ranch section at site 136, which was ideal for us with a 30 foot travel trailer, 3 kids, and 2 dogs. It was a mostly shady, huge site that was easy to back into. Some of the sites near us looked to be small and very difficult to get into because of the trees and curvy road. This is a huge campground with lots of space between camping areas. There are no bathroom facilities in the island, base and lower ranch sections so be prepared to have to hike to the restroom. There is so much to see and do in the area and we recommend that everyone see the laser light show at Crazy Horse. The Proud to be an American song at the end is phenomenal.
Not very impressed with this campground. Most sites very close together. The bathrooms were ancient with peeling paint on the floors, but they were tidied up frequently. No choice of water temp in showers with such hard spray it stung. Had difficulty checking in because computers were acting up. We had a full hook up site but had to pull halfway out of the site to dump, they did warn us about it though. Our site was gravel with weeds and no trees. We would not camp here again. There is public pool you can use for a fee.
A good place for an overnight stop. Nice level pull thru sites. Sites are close together but there are lots of trees. No problem opening slide out. The restaurant is OK. The gift shop at the store was nice. While the bathhouse was rustic it was very clean. We would stay here again.
This is a very nice state park. We originally had site 207 which was in a wooded shady area. Because of the weather and bugs we changed to site 100, which is huge open site and worked well for us. The hike up to balance rock was strenuous but worth it! We ended up paying a bit more for the campsite because of fees and being from out of state.
This is one of the best campgrounds we have ever been to! Close to the expressway with very large paved sites. The bathrooms were great. I wish we could have stayed more than one night and really enjoyed the place!
This is a nice campground very close to Montreal. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The seasonal sites were the best I have ever seen! Our main complaint was the lack of bathroom facilities. In the area we were in there were only 2 unisex stalls each with a toilet and shower. There were long waits to use them in the morning. My husband and son climbed the big hill to the restrooms at the back of the campground and found more toilets but also lines for the showers. I can not imagine what it would be like if the campground was full.
Very nice and very clean campground. They escort you to your site and give you boards for leveling. We had great seafood at Beals in Southwest Harbor. We loved the oceanarium touch tank, learning about and holding sea cucumbers, star fish, sea urchins, horseshoecrabs, snails and sand dollars. We have been to many touch tanks but learned the most and enjoyed this one the best. We also enjoyed the lobster hatchery. A highlight of the trip was going kayaking at the campground and seeing the seals. I highly recommend it.
We enjoyed staying at Bayley's. The kids highlight was seeing the hypnotist! The campground is huge to say the least. There are beautiful tentsites at the back. The store is well stocked. The food at the restaurant was good. We were in on overflow site near the basketball court so we had full hook up but no picnic table or fire ring. The sites were close together but we could put out our awning and slideout. Unfortunately it had rained heavily before we got there and our site was soggy/muddy. We could not put out a rug and had to carry the dog from the road. It did dry out in a couple days. The owner offered to move us to the only other available site in heavy woods with alot of standing water around so we decided to keep the site we had as we were already set up. My biggest complaint was we only planned on staying for 3 nights but they had a 4 night minimum over the holiday and charged an additional $10 because of it.
This is a great campground. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The bathrooms are spotless. The laundry facilities are nice. The beach is about a 20 minute walk from the back of the campground. The seasonal sites are well maintained and tidy. It can be tight getting into some the sites because of the all the trees. From reading past post regarding this campground it appears the new owers have cleaned the place up nicely.
The staff was friendly and helpful. The sites are big and level with some trees. The only problem was the bathrooms were gross! The walls were buckled, the floors were cement. It was hard to tell if they were stained or dirty. Even the kids complained about them.
