Rate reflects VKR discount for a pull-through, FHU site. On a positive note, the cable worked, electric was good, check-in staff were friendly. Very expensive for what it is. Very tight for a large motorhome. We are a big rig towing and were there for an overnight. I asked to make sure we wouldn't need to unhook and were assured we had "a very long site". The escort promptly lead us to make a immediate sharp right turn, despite the fact that we were parked against a curb to our right and a fence at the curve. We couldn't make the turn and had to unhook at a tight angle - which appeared to humor the staff since they were laughing while we unhooked. The area our site was in appeared to be nearly all residents/seasonals. The "very long site" may have measured long, but the functionally level section in the middle was barely adequate for a 40' motorhome and the toad would have stuck out in the road had we left it connected. It would not have been possible to pull out of the site with the toad attached due to the uphill right turn you had to make out of the site and the tight turns to get back to the exit. Tree branches in this area also need to be trimmed overhead. WiFi was unusable. We do not recommend this campground if you are a large motorhome.

We have stayed at Parkers Crossroads 5 times now, and while we don't usually re-review a campground unless there is a big change, we are making an exception because of the outstanding customer service we received on our most recent visit. The campground continues to be improved; the most recent additions are concrete landing areas and large decks for the upper pull through sites. No more pulling out the portable step for the motorhome entry door. Site escort is one of the most considerate we have encountered. Escort is at a careful speed through the campground. Utilities are pointed out and the escort stays to make sure you are comfortable with them. The view from the upper sites is very nice, lots of grass to walk the dogs, excellent power and water pressure. The campground guide has good detail on the local food and fuel options, including notes about where to find big-rig-friendly truck pumps. Now the reason for this re-review. We somehow managed to forget our water filter and adjustable water pressure regulator when we pulled out, and didn't discover they were missing until hours later. We called the campground to see if they could find the parts and ship them to us at our cost. 3 days later we had our filter and regulator, well packed and shipped with the only cost being the actual shipping charges. We offered to pay for packaging/handling as well since it was our mistake, but they politely refused to charge anything additional. It may seem like a small thing, but for us it was outstanding customer service. We will definitely stay here in the future.

Overall, a very nice park. Utilities worked very well, except the wifi which didn't seem to have an actual Internet connection. The campground manager was very helpful upon our arrival/check-in and also later when we had some questions. There isn't a lot to do immediately in the area, even groceries are a bit of a drive, but it is pretty much centrally located to both Buffalo and Rochester. The big attraction is the golf course, which is well maintained, very scenic, very friendly and helpful staff, and very affordable. We enjoyed our few days there and will return for a longer visit/more golf next time.

Rate reflects a "Hot Deal" that was running for our stay. We stayed at this park a few years ago and loved it, so we were looking forward to returning. It's a little further out than other parks in the Freeport area, but the staff is great and the park is generally laid back and relaxing. We ran into a couple of issues this time which cause the lower rating. Electric was OK during the week (117 V) but voltage dropped to marginal levels (112 V on one leg, 110 V on the other of 50 amp service) on weekends when it was more crowded. Water pressure was much lower than last time we visited; we ended up running off our tank/pump for showers. WiFi throughput was poor so we gave up and used our Verizon data. Unlike the experience of the person who stayed in May, we found the entrance road to be in sore need of repair. It was quite rutted when we arrived and there were many low hanging branches for our 11'4" motorhome to dodge. We were there for a long enough stay (and nice enough weather) that someone could have done a little grading, but things were even worse when we left. On exiting from Big Skye Lane (dirt) onto the main road, the height difference due to the ruts caused our front end to bottom out on the pavement and we suffered a little over $1000 in damage to our entry step and door. We contacted the KOA to make them aware we'd had damage and the need to repair the entry road (not asking for compensation or anything like that) and we weren't even afforded the courtesy of an acknowledgement, never mind an apology. We will stay elsewhere next time.

This is one of the few options in the area, and the price takes advantage of it. The wooded sites are spacious and you don't have your neighbor right on top of you. They're also quite level. If you are a family with kids and your camping unit is a travel trailer, you'll have a great time with all the activities and kid-centric amenities. If you're just adults looking for a campground with good utilities and good site design, you'll be very frustrated, even more so if you have a larger rig. While the campground impresses with all sorts of things to keep you busy, it disappoints when it comes to the actual site. We stayed here midweek and had low voltage problems on what was a 50 amp site. Could not run anything of significance on one leg of the power since it was only 108V with nothing running. Could not run more than one appliance at a time on the other leg without our EMS shutting down for low voltage. Cable didn't work. OTA TV signal was too weak and trees blocked satellite. WiFi was very weak the first day then stopped working for the rest of the stay. The shade is nice (especially since we couldn't run our A/C) but some serious pruning needs to be done of the underbrush up to about 12 ft. high since it encroaches on the roads and sites and makes getting into and out of your site very difficult. Roads are very tight and it can be nearly impossible to get out of your site if you have neighbors across the way. We would not recommend bringing anything larger than a 40' motorhome here and if you're towing, unhook your car at the camp store. Price includes a $5/night "resort fee" which covers a handful of things and is necessary for WiFi and using the dog facility. Why not just admit that the site fee is higher than they advertise and not have these "add ons"? We were only here to visit family in the area and will not use this park again unless we have to.

Good power, pull through sites that are great for overnighting. Very convenient to Flying J for diesel. Very close to the I-81 yet the hill blocks a lot of the noise. Good cable, power, and water. Wi-Fi was slow. Lot of grass to walk the dogs. We were in the more open sites for satellite, others have more trees. We would stay here again if we needed to overnight in the area.

Very convenient to I-81, a good overnight spot but not a destination park. Layout was a little unusual in that it seems to be random spots around a family/business compound. That aspect does make it feel secure. Good power, good Wi-Fi, nice grass areas to walk the dogs. A fair amount of road noise. Price seems a little high for an overnight stopping spot but it's better than other options in the area. No trash bins or dumpster that we could find, so we had to take our pet pick up bags with us.

This is definitely the place to stay in Crossville if you want a peaceful, adult park. Very nice owners, very nice campers. Sites on pond/lake back up to it. Good size sites with concrete patios, wrought iron tables and chairs, and canopied swing/glider seats were nice. Wi-Fi speed was just "ok", sometimes not great. The one oddity is the lack of trash receptacles anywhere, except 3 garbage cans behind the bath house. No dumpster on the way out, and no close by cans for the pet pick-up bags. With the peacefulness and friendly people we would stay here again.

It had been many years since we last stayed at Parkers Crossroads and our last experience was creepy. After a friend had stayed here recently, we decided to try it again and were very glad we did! The concrete pads are very level, good power, nice grass to walk the dogs. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The upper sites could use a little more landscaping but they're new so as time goes on it will likely grow in. Note that our GPS thought the location was about 1/2 mile further north on 22, so watch carefully for the campground signs. We would stay here again when needing a campground between Memphis and Nashville.

Our second stay at this campground, and unfortunately we have to rate it lower this time around. We love the level, pull-through sites, good water pressure, good WiFi, and large, grassy dog run. We knew about the train, and were glad for a site not too close to it. The unfortunate issue is that we did not get much rest at night because our surge protector over/under voltage sensor tripped several times between midnight and 1 AM. No storms or anything like that. We finally shut off power to the RV, not knowing what was going on, and tried to sleep with the windows open (unsuccessfully, due to the train). Power levels read OK during the day, but something was happening at night.

This was an unexpected find for a municipal (county) park! We stayed in the full hookup section, which offered fairly level sites, excellent WiFi, and a quiet setting. Lots of activity options available: boat and bike rentals, snack bar, lake, etc. The staff (especially maintenance) were very friendly. The treed FHU back in sites offer morning shade but you will encounter pine sap issues. The pull-through and lower numbered FHU back ins do not have this issue, and the lower numbers will have a little late afternoon shade. The park is gated access-only, and park ranger patrol is visible. The only downsides are rather high fees for pull-throughs (an extra $10/night) and low water pressure (we filled and ran off our tank while we were here). If staying only one night, the park pass cost of $3/day or $5/year could be off-putting, but for longer stays seems well worth it for the value of the Hamilton County parks and their recreation opportunities. We will absolutely return.

The largest park we've stayed in, in terms of the number of sites. Sites on the eastern portion of the park are nice and wide, those on the western side, especially the gravel sites, are tighter and feel more congested. The park is very busy in the summer months. We saw new arrivals pulling in within an hour of a site being vacated. Very good water and electric, loved the very level concrete super sites. Agree with a previous poster that at this price, WiFi should be included. Good Verizon signal if you use an air card or tether, which we did. We were very pleased that we were allowed to wash the RV (it's even mentioned in the rules that you can). The park is very well maintained and staff are constantly on the move collecting trash bags, mowing, weeding, etc. We were disappointed that there was only one off-leash/fenced dog walk area for the entire park. It's located at the southern edge of the park in the western section so it's not convenient for most of the park. There aren't many open grass areas beyond your site to walk your dog as an alternative. We didn't hear too much road noise at night, but the train immediately to the south was hard to miss at times. Overall a very nice park.

The positives for this park are the convenience to 2 interstates, level sites with good pea gravel, nice landscaping, and good power. It's also very family/children-centric with lots of activities and things to do for the kids. The young man who escorted us to our site was one of the best escorts we've had. He didn't drive too fast and was very clear with his hand signals. Downsides are the narrow sites and tight roads, especially for larger rigs. The office staff also recommended an exit route which was physically impossible for our coach (fortunately, we walked the route first, and realized we wouldn't be able to make the turn suggested, even with our tow disconnected). WiFi went from sporadic to non-existant after hours and was too slow to be usable when the campground was full. The pet walk was tiny. An OK overnight during the week, great for families any time, we would not recommend for a motorhome over 40 feet, especially if towing and you don't want to disconnect.

Nice park. Friendly host. Sites are a little close together, but our neighbors were very friendly. Pet friendly - they provide "mutt mitt" bags at the pet walk area. The road to the park is a local one with no shoulders so take it easy and you'll be fine. Good for an overnight; we would probably stay here again if in the area.

Very friendly owner and very convenient for an overnight stop. Despite being close to the interstate, we had no noticeable noise. We will stay here again.

This was a very pleasant surprise! We overnighted at this park and chose it based on the positive reviews here. The park appears to be newer and very well thought out. The sites all appear to be level and pull-through, which make it a fantastic overnight stop. The office staff was very friendly and led us to our site even though we could see it from the office (which was great since we'd had a long, rainy drive). Utilities were great, with good cable TV, open sites for satellite, and good Wi-Fi. While the landscaping is fairly new, it was very well-done. The park had one of the best pet walk areas we've encountered. All grass and quite large, with bags and trash can provided. There weren't even any bare spots, which was amazing. The only reason we had to take a point off was the train noise. If you have pets, you'll want to be closer to the pet walk but that puts you closer to the train. It doesn't blow the whistle late at night, but you can still hear the rumble. Of course the park can't move the train, but it is the one downside. We will definitely stay at this park again, and next time for more than an overnight so we can explore the area.

This is a good park for an overnight stop, and is clearly a work in progress as the new owners/managers are working their behinds off to make it a good park. There is new gravel throughout the park for sites and roads, a fenced dog run, new renovations everywhere but it's still a work in progress so it will be interesting to see where the park ends up in a year or two. The utilities were very good and the Wi-Fi was acceptable, but occasionally slow. The camphost was very friendly. What they can do: the sites, at least in the overnight area, are too close together. We were situated with a "gap" or empty site between us and the folks on either side, but we were as close to the folks 2 sites away as we would be if they were in the adjacent spot in a standard spacing. The mosquitoes are 2 to 4 times the size of any we had ever seen and very aggressive. We didn't see any standing water but they were everywhere. Some kind of mitigation is definitely needed. What they can't do anything about: road noise from I-30 and a nearby train. Again, a good overnight stop if you happen to be in the area and they are clearly working hard to improve the park. Give them time and it should be easy to rate it higher next time.

This was our second stay at the Hollywood Casino Park. We come here for the golf, not the casino. The park has added Wi-Fi since our last stay, but it was unusable beyond the first few minutes. Aside from that, it's a great park with a great rate. Paved sites with space for your car next to you. Picnic pavilions with grills and trash cans every few sites. Great utilities. Security patrol at night. Trash pickup every day. Last time we were here there were problems with pet waste. Now there are "gentle reminder" signs in the office and we did not encounter any "deposits" left behind. A definite improvement. This will continue to be our preferred park in the Tunica casino area.

This is a very convenient campground for overnighting along the route, and looks like it would be fantastic for rallies. The sites are very long and level, with excellent utilities. While there is a lot of traffic noise from I-71, if you run your roof air conditioner fan you shouldn't hear it. There are many well-established trees throughout the park, which can make satellite reception challenging. One notable issue with the park is the lack of trash bins and dumpsters. We had to take our doggy waste bags with us when we left because we couldn't find anywhere in the campground to toss them. The entry road could use some work - it's quite a long drive and is only packed dirt. Be aware that the layout is a little unusual - you drive past what appears to be the bulk of the sites to get to the office, then have to loop back around to get to your site if it's a pullthrough. We saw a few confused folks pulling in after dark and searching for the office in the wrong area. We would definitely stay here again when using I-71.

We really had high hopes for this park: the photos on the website looked great and given the price compared to others in the area, we expected a superior experience. Unfortunately, while a lot of money has obviously been spent on this campground in order to add amenities and gain awards: the net result fails to meet basic expectations. The price reflects the cost of amenities that are not necessarily part of camping, but those costs are passed onto the campers. Sure, the pool is nice, the playground is unbelievable, virtually every KOA point-gathering amenity exists, and from the looks of it there are lots of activities for kids and families. They should have spent money on the basics, first. The entrance is extremely challenging if you are turning right from northbound Rt. 414, which is the easier direction given the grade of the hill coming up from Watkins Glen and the sharp left turn from Rt. 14. You will likely have to pull fully into the oncoming lane to make the right. The entrance is also quite a bit sloped up from 414, as evidenced by all the hitch and towbar scars on the main road. The trees that line the entrance were not maintained to a reasonable RV height, and larger rigs may be forced under their low hanging branches to make the 2 turns necessary to negotiate the entrance. Taller rigs need to watch for damage. Wi-Fi, while free, was unusably slow. You are also limited to one IP address. A disappointment given the nightly site rate. The sites are also gravel, not fully paved, as are the interior roads, which creates a lot of dust. It is doubtful we would stay here again if the rates remain the same.

This is the second time we've stayed at Lake Champagne, and it's our favorite central Vermont campground. The views are beautiful and the campground very peaceful, at least from what we experienced in the full hookup section. Great open sites, huge grassy areas between rows add to the experience. We would love to have given the campground a "10" but couldn't for one main reason. The connections for the full hookups on the top row are set too far back (close to the road) and the sites slope just enough that your sewer hose runs uphill. This made emptying tanks a challenge if you park far enough forward to pull the towed car in behind you.

Convenient overnight location. Workers are very friendly and helpful. Dog walk area is adjacent to a high-speed road so be careful. A couple of the pull-through sites are nose-to-tail. Owner seemed annoyed that we hadn't called ahead for a reservation on a weeknight, but they do fill up pretty quickly given their convenience to the Interstate.

It is very convenient to the interstate but you'll definitely get some noise as a result. It is a good overnight spot, tows can stay attached in many sites but may be sticking out in the road (with a cone behind).

Nice park in a convenient location for an overnight. Owners were very friendly; park was very clean and attractive. Pull through sites were a bit odd - nose to tail. Dog run has 2 areas with a gate in between which was nice if there were multiple dogs wanting to use the run. Interior roads are a bit tight, and exit could be a bit challenging if you have a long overhang behind the rear wheels. You might scrape a bit so take it carefully.

This is probably the best bet on the east side of the Hudson River for anyone visiting the area since it can handle just about any size rig. The 50 Amp sites are on a hill that you pass as you drive to check in, so a little backtracking is required after registering. Pet owners note - you will be required to present current rabies certificates for your pets. Sites on the hill were good size, especially the patio area. Close to the camp store the sites are smaller and seem to have a lot of seasonal campers. The owners are incredibly friendly and helpful - excellent recommendations for local restaurants. Price, while high for grass back-in sites, was competitive with others in the area and they do honor Passport America (which is 50% off what we paid) for non-weekend, non-holiday nights). Wifi on the hill was too weak for a reliable signal. We will stay here again when visiting the area.

Campground is on a hillside with lots of well-established trees. While we couldn't get satellite from our roof unit, there was no problem with a tripod-mounted dish. No Wi-Fi but we used our Verizon aircard so it didn't matter to us. Just a couple of seasonals in the park. There is water (lake) access and the campground has kayaks, canoes, and paddleboats for rent. Very well stocked store. Roads and most sites are gravel, can be a little bumpy after heavy rains but campground owners seemed to be out there constantly trying to stay ahead of the rain. Our site was very level (we have air-leveling that self-adjusts every 30 minutes if needed, and it only adjusted once in our stay). We snugged as far to the utility of the site as we could and had plenty of patio space under the awning. Dog walk could be larger or better yet, multiple locations with pick-up bags.

Very narrow road leading to campground. Very narrow entry and exit gate at campground. Poor tree placement too close to site ends and low branches made it very difficult to get into and out of the site. Lots of summer residents who drove golf carts through our site and right up next to our motorhome to lookie-loo at it. Turns do not allow you to leave your tow car hooked up - don't even think about it. We saw multiple rigs get stuck on the first turn. We do not consider this campground to be big-rig friendly.

Campground is mostly long-term seasonal/summer residents but they do keep some sites available for "regular" campers. Good for overnight or a few days. Extremely convenient to the Thruway, although some sites may be affected by the road noise. Great base for exploring the Finger Lakes. Camp hosts were extremely friendly. There were lots of activities for kids and adults alike but it never got noisy. We'd stay here again if we were wanting to tour the area some more.

Fabulous views of the surrounding countryside from most sites. Lower sites can be iffy for satellite. Sites were narrow, someone next to you seemed rather close and blocked the views. Despite making reservations months in advance and asking for 50-amp, we were given a 30-amp site and had to power-manage using only one appliance at a time or we tripped the site breaker. Note that the campground also charges for A/C use. We would definitely come back and give them another try if we could ensure a 50-amp site or if they improved the power distribution. There aren't any grocery stores or other major shopping nearby (that we could find), but it's very centrally located for tourist activities in VT.

For us, this was a great park. Very convenient to I-95, groceries, Walmart, etc. Added benefit of discount on golf. Fairly quiet park - great for adults who want some peace and quiet and to just chill. Not a destination park unless you're specifically here for the golf, which was great for us; it keeps the cost and crowds down. We did not see cable hookups or a wi-fi signal, but we got great satellite reception in the open site we had and good cell signal that we used for our internet. Roads interior to the campground could use some maintenance.

While further from downtown/shopping in Freeport, this is by far the best campground in the area. Whether you like a wooded site or a wide open pull-through, any rig could be accommodated. During the week it's a very peaceful campground. Weekends get pretty busy with all kinds of activities for families and kids. They are very well organized and very well thought out. Camp hosts were super friendly and had great recommendations for local eateries, etc. Wireless did slow down significantly on weekends and KOA corporate/website sends you the shorter but less big-rig friendly route.

The only positives we can give this park are for the water pressure, electric voltage level, and cable reception (number of channels), all of which were very good and the location, which was convenient for us. Wi-Fi is available, but was low signal quality and not free. Cellphone reception is iffy at best. We made reservations more than a month and a half in advance and specified that we were a 40 foot motorhome that was towing a car. The site we were given was exactly 40 feet from edge of the road to the edge of a creek drop off. Our rear wheels were 6 inches from the edge of the creek and the entire back end of the coach was hanging over the creek, while the front edge of our coach was just barely off the road. While walking, we saw several sites that appeared longer and more appropriate for a coach of this size, and were not occupied at all during our stay, so we don't know why they stuffed us where they did. There was also no escort to the site, despite the interior roads being extremely narrow, winding, with blind curves. We could barely level the coach, the rear end was jacked as high as it would go and the front bottomed out on the tires. The very front of our coach was no more than 2 inches off the ground. Most of the available sites appeared to be very unlevel. The entire site was dirt and surrounded by dirt. Not paved, not gravel, not grass. Dirt. The first thing you see on their site is that they are "big rig friendly." Well, the staff may be but the campground certainly is not. We do not recommend you stay here unless you are 36 foot long or shorter and get to choose your site personally. Do not arrive at night as you cannot get in past the gates and the drive would be too hazardous given the narrowness and winding of the interior roads.

Scenic, relatively level, nice wide sites. Lots of activities on weekends. No cable and can't get satellite from nearly any site. Good thing Wi-Fi is free - it's pathetically slow and often not working at all. Had someone in the campground trying to hack into our computers for an entire weekend. Awesome "paw walk" for the dogs. Gated access is nice but camp host seemed annoyed one afternoon after ignoring our first buzz to get in. Lots of seasonals on weekends. Convenient to Maryland but not really to D.C. Pricey for what you get.

There were friendly, helpful camp hosts. The park is convenient to the interstate. We wouldn't really recommend this for big rigs - the largest sites are like threading the needle through the trees and aren't terribly level; it taxed our leveling system. Campground seems to have removed as few trees and leveled as little as possible. Aside from the space for the rig, the rest of the site was unusable. We would not recommend pulling in past dark due to the challenging drive to the site. There are very limited cable channels, and it is tough to get a satellite signal.

Very pretty, serene campground with lots of trees and very friendly camp hosts. Good dog walk area with bags and trash can provided. We were only here one night this time and the site we got had power problems on the 50 amp service (111 volts one leg, 140 volts the other) and extremely low water pressure. Had we stayed longer we would have asked for a different site. Keep an eye out when you pull out - there is a nearly blind hill coming from the right on the main road.

We paid rally rate. Would have given the campground a 10 for the nice, wide, level sites, great dog run, super rally rooms, very friendly staff, etc. except Wifi wasn't free (we heard talk that it may be next year, once the current contract with the 3rd-party provider ends). Park is very new, and everything was spotless. Be sure to swing VERY wide coming in off Rayford Rd. as the turn is a bit tight and, the drainage culvert doesn't look very forgiving.

Super-friendly and helpful camp hosts! Wi-Fi signal and speeds were excellent. Very quiet campground. Entering the campground is a bit of a tight turn so swing wide. Pull-through sites are mostly out in the open with just a few having large shade trees but the back ins had lots of shade. We will definitely stay here any time we are in the area.

For the price, this is a nice campground. Mostly back-in sites with decent landscaping. Very convenient to the casino and nearby golf course. Good laundry facilities. Lost a point from us for not having free wi-fi. Lost another point because they don't seem to enforce parking and pet rules. Vehicles were parked on the grass next to the picnic table gazebos and most campers did not pick up after their dogs - there were landmines everywhere. There is a fenced-in dog area but it is entirely concrete. The park would serve itself and its campers better if they would install bag dispensers and covered garbage cans with "please pick it up" signs in the areas folks walk their dogs.

Closest park to the historic sites, very wooded and quiet. Laundry was spotless with good capacity machines. Power was excellent with little voltage drop when AC was running - we could run several appliances at the same time even on 30 amp. Hosts were very pleasant. Red Hill Road is very windy and has a blind curve approaching from the east. Be cautious entering and exiting the campground as the road traffic won't be. Only 2 local TV stations, no cable and could not get satellite signal. WiFi response is mixed - occasionally decent speed but would slow to a crawl often. Cellphone reception was poor even with a Wilson Trucker antenna. Sites are tight in many cases, not in terms of neighbors but close trees and narrow entries. Clearing some of these and regarding some sites would help. Dog walk is a dirt path with little grass due to all the shade. Basketball court is very close to a couple of sites - we saw several groups actually hit a coach parked in one of these sites.

Nice, smaller park with very friendly camp hosts. They've recently added a small dog park/run area so pets can be off leash for a few minutes. Good wi-fi. Very peaceful park during the week. Summer weekends are crazy with kids running through sites, riding on recumbent trikes and not paying attention to traffic or if they are close to the road. We definitely recommend the campground for non-weekend stays if you don't have kids and it's probably a blast on weekends if you do.

We really debated the rating for this campground. The facility itself is well laid out, very attractive, and while it lacks full hook-ups there is good dump access and a mobile service that drives around daily which will pump your tanks for a fixed fee. It's a nice campground to walk in most of the time. The downsides are pretty grubby showers and limited, broken laundry equipment. The biggest problem is that camp hosts do not enforce the rules needed to make this a pleasant stay for everyone, at least when there is horse show going on at the adjacent Horse Park. Pets are allowed to wander loose, multiple camping units are allowed on a single site. The grass is overrun with extra vehicles. We have seen gray valves left open while multiple people visit a trailer to shower, etc. Golf carts and trucks zip by exceeding the speed limit. When there isn't a show, this is once of the nicest campgrounds we've stayed at, so we recommend checking the event calendar for the Horse Park and trying to camp here when there isn't an event going on at that facility.

Great location if you want to check out mid/south Maine and need a central base location. 30 minutes or so to Freeport for shopping, 40 minutes to Boothbay Harbor. Convenient to Augusta for groceries/shopping. Almost all the sites have lots of tree cover. Most are gravel/vegetation, but are reasonably level. Sites were a little narrow and you definitely had to unhook the toad either before pulling in or out due to close trees. Campground has lake front access and a few boat rentals. Hosts are very friendly and make you feel very welcome. No wi-fi and couldn't get a satellite signal, but we did get good HDTV/digital reception. Probably not the best choice for families with kids, although there was a playground, but really nice for us and our dogs.

Typical northeast campground. No cable and impossible to get satellite reception. Only 2 off-air TV channels. Campground has power problems - could only run 1 appliance or AC at a time or would trip low voltage on our surge guard. No breakers on power pole. Very quiet, pretty campground, though, nice wide sites and very nice people. We heard these are new owners so we expect the issues will be taken care of soon.
