Great people, great park!
Sep 22, 2016
We are from Germany visiting the US. We had a rental trailer traveling to Bar Harbor,had a great stay at this KOA
Sep 22, 2016
Roads and sights need work. We go there each summer to visit my sister who lives in Gardine ME. sights expensive for the condition. Will continue to camp there for these visits. Will always leave the KO A to visit my sister. Shouldn't be a fee for her to visit me!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We've made vast improvements to the roads, sites, as well as entire park in 5 years, and plan to continue. There will always be a visitor fee. Thank you for your continued business.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for the nice words Linda ! It was so great that your group of friends contacted me ahead of time to book over the Holiday Weekend so I was able to best accommodate you. We recommend that folks no matter when traveling in 2's or more contact us ahead so we can try to provide the best sites.

we had a great stay, we were traveling with friends. our sight was well maintained and the staff was friendly and helpful.we will tell others about this campground

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks, So glad that you guys booked with us and had your friends book with us also! We try to accommodate guests the best we can when they call ahead to book. It really limits us when guests make reservations on line and want to have a site beside on another, so glad we could work it out for you.

This KOA was a great find for us traveling on our way to Bar Harbor. We didn't realize how much there was to do around there. The owner and her husband are great hosts. We loved our site #25 and will be planning another trip to Maine!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your business guys you were great guests! We'd love to have you with us anytime!

Nice campground and facilities
Sep 13, 2016
people on the phone were great, sites are on a hill. Pool closed for season, seemed early, other Maine places still open. To many rules and fees, compared to other places we have stayed. I understand the need for rules but you have to have guest out by 8 p.m.cant have them stay unless you've registered them on the reservation. Hard when your family is 9 miles away and want to pop in

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for staying with us. Most Campground's in Maine pools close after Labor Day. We require all visitors to register for the safety and comfort of all guests. Our park is on a hillside with lovely terraced level sites.
Sep 13, 2016
The campground is a little dated however everything is clean and pretty well kept up. The bathroom was clean and everything worked. The staff was most helpful and friendly, even with a complex problem that was handed to them at checkout. Thank you. We were there to attend a convention in augusta and were quite pleased. Dick Williams

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks Dick, Yes we are looking a little dated at just over 40 years and having thousands of families make memories here. So if anyone has ideas for a face lift / tuck please share them with us! Your group was a pleasure to have with us, hope to see you again sometime!
Sep 12, 2016
Nice folks, level sites, convenient to the highway.
Sep 11, 2016
Clean, quiet, frenely
Sep 09, 2016
We had a fantastic few days vacation, the campground was quiet, clean and easily found and accessed. The whole team were friendly and made us welcome. We will go back there and we have a benchmark for other KOA's. Thanks, KOA Augusta ME team.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Having guests that appreciate what all of our staff do it what helps us all keep going. Campers like you fuel our energy and love for the business! We look forward to having you come camp with us again!!

The staff was wonderful. They were very friendly & made our stay perfect!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your business and the nice words Randy! But when we have campers like you guys who are respectful of our policies and have great camping etiquette stay with us it helps everyone on our park property to be able to be Happy Campers. Priceless!!!
Sep 08, 2016

Friendly staff, helpful, clean campsites and restrooms.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sharon, thanks for noticing all that we do to try to provide a safe & comfortable camping experience for all of our campers. Campers like you who if are only even here for one night make a difference in our business, and we do appreciate it when you respect what we are doing to make it possible.
Sep 02, 2016
Quiet, convenient, very well maintained, though one shower was out of order the bath/shower room wasn't busy so it wasn't a problem for me. Bath/shower rooms are my most important criteria and this campground gets all 5 stars.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for choosing to stay with us and for the nice comments. As you can probably figure with the amount of use and abuse our bathrooms take we tray to keep on top of things to keep them as nice as possible for our campers. Thanks again!
Sep 01, 2016
Although the campground was very clean, and they did try to have activities for all; I do have to say that the uncomfortable feeling you got over the "rules" was a big turn-off for us. I feel that as adults, an opening run down would have been ok, but that seemed to be too much of the focus anytime you went into the office. So much so that what YOU were saying was not even heard

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We understand it can be difficult traveling in a large group which is why we included an extra site for free. Quiet time is 10 p.m. for all campers. We want you to play hard all day and sleep well at night. Thanks for staying with us.
Aug 30, 2016
Amazing staff of friendly people everything was clean and well kept and the group activities and things to do are amazing Thank you all
Aug 28, 2016
We enjoyed our stay. The owner was very friendly and helpful. She not only explained how to play shuffleboard she actually came out and showed us how to play.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

You folks were a pleasure to have with us. Thank you for choosing to stay with us we hope that you will come back to visit with us again!
Aug 24, 2016
This KOA IS great fun so much for everyone to do but most importantly they cater yo what the kids like. Owners and staff are great.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for staying with us! We seem to have more campers who are older who travel just as the two people and aren't very interested in activities but when we do have active families we try to give everyone a little something to do. We love smiling faces!! Happy Memories are PRICELESS !!!

Lovely host, sites very nice large and level. Quiet location with pool but with free passes to lovely community lake to swim!
Aug 22, 2016
Wonderful "gem" so close to home. Super glad we stayed.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Don't be such strangers, we're looking forward to having you back with us!
Aug 20, 2016
After a hard day's driving its nice to be greeted warmly instead of briskly. Take a minute to greet your guests..

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We do take extra steps to welcome our guests that have made a prior reservation with us and show up at / after check in time. As a walk-in off the road showing up before check in time that makes it more difficult because we are using the time between check out-check in to properly prep for guests.
Aug 20, 2016
Very nice campground. Only complaint would be they are a little too strict on their visitor policy especially when senior citizens are the visitors.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

So glad that you to stayed with us. We do have visitor policies and fees that have to be the same for everyone. And we do not hide the fact that we have them. Most Campgrounds Do.
Aug 19, 2016
This is my first complaint about a KOA. The Campground is nice, but Management is rude and policy driven. Recommend the owners and staff take some customer care training.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for staying with us. We advise at check in that there is a fee for visitors. And that we are strict about speeding in our park. I am sorry that made your visit unpleasant. safe travels.
Aug 19, 2016
Great to work with had RV problem and recommend someone that was great we had to stay extra days. Mountain Road RV is great also if needed

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We know what it is like to have the unenforceable happen to your RV while traveling,and always try to treat our campers how we would like to be treated when we stay at a campground.We ourselves appreciate comfort & safety measures & believe that all campers should have etiquette & follow the rules.
Aug 18, 2016
The cleanest campground bathroom ever!! The grounds also nice and Henry our escort made us feel welcome and right at home!
Aug 16, 2016
Loved your campground. It is one of the nicer ones we've stayed. Love all the trees.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for choosing us and for the kind words! We like the trees ourselves as well, just wish we knew how to have them change in color and just stay on the trees rater then falling off!
Aug 16, 2016
We were traveling with frinds and the lady in the office when we booked took time to get us as close together as possible, we were very pleased with the entire staff and found this KOA main tainted beautifully.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for appreciating what we do for our campers and even more so for planning your trip ahead of time so we could do our best to make everyone you were traveling with as comfortable as possible. Hope to see you guys back with us again next year!
Aug 16, 2016
Unlevel sites on the side of a hill and $10 charge to checkin at noon,not at 2

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Lucky the site was even available at 12, since our check out time is at 12. A lot of our campers wait until the last minute to check out because they just don't want to leave us! Our staffing schedule is made ahead of time to accommodate what our cleaning / prepping procedures are.
Aug 13, 2016
Our entire family had a terrific time at the Augusta - Gardiner KOA. Dave so great with the kids during the planned activities. Ours are hard to keep entertained and he tuckered them out. It gave us a chance to have a few adult moments.
Aug 13, 2016
We enjoy your stay, very clean campground. Very friendly staff .
Aug 13, 2016
Such a nice place we chose to extend our stay!
Aug 13, 2016
Everything was ok - except the $5 (per hour) fee for arriving early - never had that before.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We've had early/late check in fees for 3 years, it is on the home page of our website, all who call us to book are asked if they will be arriving between check in time 2 pm and the closing time of the office on their date of arrival, if they are not we remind them of the per hr late/early fees.
Aug 13, 2016
We had a water & electric site for just one night at this KOA, it was a great find. The entire staff as well as the owners provided us with wonderful hospitality.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Although you were just traveling though and we were a stop on your journey. We appreciate that you chose to stay with us and that you were terrific campers!
Aug 13, 2016
This KOA is located in such a great location for travelers, having our name on the board when we pulled in was such a nice touch.
