Extra charge for 45 minute early entry. Dog part is terrible. Poor area to exit to hook up toad. Sign in was incredibly slow. Ok place for a couple of over nights but way over priced for accomodations.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your business. All of our pull through sites are long enough to hook up your tow vehicle on site. This person chose to park at our exit to hook up. Our dog park is large clean and lots of fun according to the experts who pee there!

Can'the get over some of the comments campers have made about this park. They do have their policies posted on their website about early, late, and visitor fees. We knew and wanted to come anyway, and Will go back!
Jul 15, 2015
very nice KOA,would definitely stay here again

Advertise lake access from their dock can't use. False advertising. Wouldn't go back

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We do provide lake access to Pleasant Pond to Swim & Fish at Peacock Beach for FREE as our guest you don't have to pay the admission there.

Our daughter and granddaughter loved the pool. We loved the shady sites, the pet park and the super friendly and kind staff. Awesome place! Thanks, Tom and Laura R.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Come back and see us soon, bring along some of your friends or family to camp with you next time and we'll get them into a site as close to you as we can. We love campers like you guys!

enjoyed our stay-very friendly and organized--they are working hard to make things even better--would stay there again

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for the kind comment, it is appreciated when campers actually take the time to look around them to see not just the beautiful park that we have but also look at the total experience that we are offering to the our campers as an enjoyable, safe & comfortable experience for all ages.

We love having folks like you stay with us, it is all about a safe comfortable experience for all ages, and we pride ourselves in making our park that type of environment.

Place was immaculate but very few people were there. Charged for cream cups for coffee! Electricity was not working for 2 days but did not offer to reimburse us. Nice people.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Checked in on 7-6, reported electrical issue to office at approx. 5pm on 7-7 and it was fixed within 15 minutes. We keep good records. And yes the Mini Moos are .05 each and the sign above where the coffee is states that. Checked out 7-11.
Jul 11, 2015
Can't believe what a great family campground this is! Looking forward to coming back again sometime!

Owners Patti & Henry are great hosts and the staff are very friendly and helpful

Gret place tomstay, but very expensive.
Jul 09, 2015
Needs some up grades and leveling of sites and roades.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for the feed back, anyone who has been here previously knows that we are constantly doing upgrades and improvements to this park and that we have much more planned. As you can imagine with a park that is now 40 plus years old there is ongoing maintenance. It has to fit into a short season.

Spent two nights here, learning how to handle our new 5th wheel camper. Clean facilities, all the amenities we needed, well stocked store, friendly camp owners with helpful suggestions. Layout of the sites allowed for views without feeling like trailer-city, including level sites and shade trees for every site. Regular patrolling of campground prevented issues seen in other places.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We're glad you chose us as the place for your shake down cruise, we enjoyed having you with us.
Jul 08, 2015
Fun

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Now that just sums it up doesn't it? Thank you!

The owners are great just camp ground to. Mound on hill and we couldn't swim at campground. The rental cost for canoe was $10 for one hour...other camp grounds have boast that can be rented for like half day @ 25.00 just thought was too high to paddle around for one hour! Ok camp ground for older peopl that like to stay to selfs.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Mound on hill? We have a pool and Free access to Peacock Beach. Our canoe/kayak rentals $10. Hr/ $20. For 4 hrs, and $30. For 8 hrs. Not sure why the comment about being good for older people who like to stay to selves. Funny that we have pictures & video of you spraying the kids on the spray ride
Jul 07, 2015
Daily visitors departure policy unfair, some can stay later than others. One policy for all. Very quite after ten. All sites clean and neat. Well run. Questionable if we would return because of visitor policy (wife very upset).

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The visitors spoken of were members of a Bluegrass Band who we allowed to stay later because they provide free entertainment to our guests from time to time. We do have policies for a reason and are very consistent with the follow up on them.
Jul 07, 2015
The staff from the owners down through provided excellent customer service in all areas of our stay. All the activities that the campground put on for the children at the campground was an excellent surprise for my family. We will be back next year!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We've already started trying to come up with things that we can have / do at our park next year to make everyone's camping experience as enjoyable as possible. Can't wait to have you all back with us!
Jul 06, 2015
trop chère pour la qualité des équipements 92$ us pour une tente sans service.
Jul 06, 2015
Very nice place and the owners were great.
Jul 06, 2015
We came as a group and everyone had a great time. The campground was very accommodating to our stay and the kids didn't want to leave! We will come again this summer!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

They were very well behaved kids who like to have fun, we all enjoyed having them here!
Jul 06, 2015
Stayed in one of the cabins for 4 nights, surprised to find a bathroom in there with a shower. Cabins are great and the campsite had plenty to entertain my lively 7 and 13 year old. Patti and Henry are doing a great job building their business and camp site and made us very welcome. We will be back to their site when our travels take us North to Maine..thanks to our neighbors for the Smoked Pork.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Come back and see us anytime, you folks are great campers!
Jul 06, 2015
Everything was good. Fireworks on Friday was nice and the ice cream was a nice touch but it seemed as though half an hour wasn't long enough. Was very disappointed upon arrival to find out that the lake no longer had access to swim. It was one of my main reasons for choosing this as the pool was very small. They tried to compensate by offering passes to PC beach but we had motrhome so didn't g0

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We're looking into extending the Ice Cream to an Hour, thanks for the feed back!
Jul 06, 2015
My husband and I loved this KOA. Everyone was so friendly. Everyone knew each others names. We felt like family here. We talked on the way home about how much we enjoyed this campground. I think it is more of an adult campground which is fine with us. We plan on getting away for the weekend and coming back just him and I (no kids this time). They did have a lot of things to do for the younger kids

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Hope to see you soon!
Jul 06, 2015
Though our stay was short, we enjoyed it very much. We were extremely well taken care of by the hosts, their customer service and hospitality was phenomenal! Our kids LOVED the activities, I hope we make it back to Maine someday!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

It is greatly appreciated by us and all of of us here that folks realize what we do for them day in and day out. Having camper's like your family is why we actually do what we do because we care...from all of our Park Rules ( pool & pet policy ), Visitor Rules/Fees, Early & Late Arrival Fees.
Jul 02, 2015
The staff was very courteous and helpful, friendly also... Was disappointed with the size of pool and closeness of sites..
Jul 02, 2015
The campground and staff are the tops. Henry and Debbie, the owners, were fully engaged withthe campers and did everything possible to amke everyone feel at home. The KOA workers, Dan and Diane were super nice and very friendly. I can't say enough about this KOA. A great hidden gem!!!
Jun 30, 2015
We love everyone from KOA Augusta/Gardiner from Dave and Tina, Patti and Henry, to Joe and Linda even being rained out they helped keep us and the children entertained . We are already planning another trip for this year :)

Jun 28, 2015
Peaceful, staff very friendly, clean sites, restrooms clean, accommodating. Felt like we were part of the family when we were with the staff and the owners. When we had questions everyone went out of their way to answer us. Great tips on restaurants and attractions of Maine. Can not wait to go back.

Thanks : ) Hope to have you with us again!
Jun 24, 2015
Arrived 1 1/2 hours early. I was hoping to be able to drop my 5th wheel & go into town. I did not have to hook up to their electric. They wanted to charge me for an early arrival, no leeway. I did not appreciate

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We make it clear on our website & confirmation e-mail our policy regarding early & late fees. Early and late arrivals can take staff away from planned duties required to get ready for other guests or out of their beds in the case of late arrivals. We certainly understand the need for both at times.

Enjoyed weekend. Very kid friendly. Enjoyed the games. Dad enjoyed the pancakes.

This KOA accommodated our stay at a "clean" RV site & cabin for our children, grandchildren & dogs for an extended weekend. They had a nice playground & pool for our grandson, and various activities for the children throughout the weekend. My daughter participated in the cooking contest, which is an original activity that we enjoyed. I would recommend this KOA. (Also-not far from exit on I95.)

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

It's always great to see families making memories, we hope to see you guys again!
Jun 17, 2015
The staff extremely accommodating&helpful/Park very clean & tidy. Only minor issue is that the sites on row across from office/pool are (or were) VERY un-level-my automated levelers never did succeed so leveled w/orange blocks. Staff made concrete steps to help me get in/out (my steps broken) As leaving many dump trucks of dirt coming in & unloading at sites, so think fixing level site issue.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

You are correct, we are working on getting them all done. We're making progress all the time. We'll be posting some new pics on facebook & on our website soon!
Jun 16, 2015
The kids had a blast on the Squirt Gun Ride and loved the Flashlight Candy hunt. They loved Mining, they now show their finds off to everyone and tell them about the KOA. After checking out we didnt even make it to the end of the driveway before they were asking when we were coming back. Thank you for making camping fun.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

It's always a pleasure to have folks stay with us who appreciate all that we try to do for our guests, can't wait to have you guys back with us again!

Enjoyed the people & amenities. Wish there was more space/privacy between sites & cabins but honestly didn't mind so much that it stopped me from booking another weekend!
Jun 15, 2015
I was impressed that we weren't just told where our cabin was, but taken there. The bathroom is also the cleanest I have ever been in for any campground that I have ever been to. Great job!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks so much for the kind words! We know there are always things that could improve. Our staff works hard to keep our facility up to par and it's nice to know folk appreciate that.
Jun 09, 2015
This was our first time staying here. We were only "passing through" and stayed only one night. Very pleasant staff. We had a nice relaxing evening. Thank you.
Jun 07, 2015
We has been traveling a long time and hadn't made it as far as we had hoped and ended up finding this KOA at 8:30 pm on line and called they were closing at 9. The cabin with the 3/4 bath was wonderful as we're the owners & staff. Would stay again in a heartbeat!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you, we'll look forward to having you back with us if you get in this area of the country again, we'll leave the liight on for you!
Jun 02, 2015
overall,a pleasant visit.did not like to have to move my vehicle behind the cabin. 2 suggestions: the bathroom area should have mirror over the sink,so a guy can shave,ladies hair,etc,and also the fire extinguisher needs to be mounted in clear view on the wall,not placed in a corner on the floor. staff was pleasant.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your feed back, mirrors for over the sinks are on their way.
Jun 01, 2015
At the last minute Jim and I needed a place to stay with our RV due to some repairs, KOA Augusta Gardiner were happy to accomodate us. Staying at Patti and Henry's is always a welcoming friendly time, we came very unprepared, but the camp store had everything we needed from snacks, drinks, pancake breakfast and great coffee! Thanks Patti and Henry! And Staff :-)

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks guys for the kind words, we enjoy sharing our park with such wonderful folks as yourselves and your family.

I stayed Memorial day and had a great stay. The park was nice and clean and quiet and the staff was awesome. The only downfall to the place and it is really out of their control is the waterfront area, it is small and kind of hard to get to. Other than that awesome place, I will be back

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for the feed back, we are working on getting the area more under control, but since it's on such a steep hillside we can't do much about the accessibility. Mother Nature has her limits. Looking forward to meeting your daughter on your next trip!
