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!

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:

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.

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.

Gret place tomstay, but very expensive.

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.

Fun

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

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.

Very nice place and the owners were great.

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!

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!

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!

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 28, 2015
We had a great time everyone was pleasant and extremely amazed the owners would come by our site an visit an they new are names it was really personal feeling we will diffelenty camp there again
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.

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.

I love it

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!

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!

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.

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!
May 26, 2015
This is our first time camping at this KOA. Since we already had reservations the check in didn't take long. We were escorted by one of the staff members to our pull through site which was very easy to get into. Since the sites are pretty level it didn't take very long to set up. The staff are very friendly & welcoming. We will definitely come back to this campground in the future
May 26, 2015
Great weekend as always! Jim and I feel very blessed to have been part of this particular weekend. Seeing Patti and Henry and their extended family and being part of the fundraising event, pediatric cancer research, was very rewarding.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you guys, you have become part of our extended family over the years, and we appreciate your business as well as your friendships.

The campground staff were friendly and helpful. We were taken to a large, level, gravel pull thru site with full hook ups and shade. Opening weekend pool was being cleaned, store fully stocked, ice cream social and pancake breakfast planned. The restrooms were modern and clean. We had a great weekend and plan to camp there again soon. Thank you Patti and Henry.

We have stayed at this campground for the past 4 years and always look forward to the upcoming year. Patti and Henry are terrific hosts/owners. I am always amazed at all the new improvements done each and every year. A very hard working and personable staff.
