Campground Reviews

Aug 07, 2013
I've rated right in the middle as we were booked ocean view, but the site was flooded. We had to move to an inland field with no view after big rigs blocked any possible view. It's our only vacation and not having what we dreamed about was extremely disappointing. I know weather isn't your fault, but still the site was not what we would have ever booked.

This site is a great wooded campground right next to the bay. Things were very clean and the staff were friendly. It was a great place to stay.

We were extremely happy with our stay. The people working the registration desk were kind and friendly. We were also very happy that the WiFi worked very well. Other KOA campgrounds say they have WiFi, but it does not work and that is very disappointing, especially when you are trying to keep in contact with family members.

Lots are way too small for tents. It smelled of septic sewage, particularly strong on our last night. Very costly for tent camping. The only thing in your favor is your staff who work hard to make the facilities clean and Steve was very helpful in trying to find a tent site for us when we declined the first site.

Office closes at 8pm so quarters and soap were not available for campers who arrive late. The price was too high for a tent site without electricity.

We stayed in a brand new fully equipped cabin and were very pleased. Although we expected a wooded site on the waterfront, we still had a view of the bay and the staff had done landscaping and planted trees and shrubs. We were very happy with the hospitality, service & local info, including discounts on local attractions. The staff was very helpful and well equipped. Can't wait to return!

Good camp ground, great location and good service. The camp ground is clean - You will love the $3 breakfast and on site lobster dinner. Two short comings: firewood should be reasonably sold at $4 (locals sell for $3 per bundle. Be prepared to keep off the mosquitoes - I don't know if other camp site on the island would be the same? Anyway - I highly recommend it!

Found it rather expensive compared to other campgrounds. Unfortunately no pool. Found out on the last day that you could drive up the road to the other KOA to use pool. Like that it was pet friendly. The lobster man who was there in the evening selling lobster dinners was a great touch.

This is our second year at this KOA. This year, by far, was the best. It was so nice to come back to a familiar place and the deluxe kabin was yet again, fabulous! The campground managers were awesome this year, especially their daughter Rachel. She made sure the kids felt welcomed in every activity that they participated in. We all ended up feeling so much a part of the campground. Thanks!!!

I would like to say the staff was great! My issue was the location of our camp site- right next to the main hall, with lights shining onto our site. Many other web sites provide the option to choose a site. The KAO Bar Harbor site does not, and also does not warn campers they have been assigned to a site which will have light shining on it all night. We would have somewhere else had we known.

Location of the campground was beautiful, but we were right beside the dumpster. The shower facilities were way too small, very hard to move. We were on a corner site and didn't even have enough room to open up our awning.

I have been coming here for the past few years. I stay most of the summer. Here is why... The people who work here are enthusiastic, friendly and extremely helpful(always going beyond their duties. They are fun and happy and love this KOA as much as I do.The sites are really and I mean really nice!!! It's a fantastic place to stay. I wish I could get a site for 3 months at a time. Thanks so much!

Exceptionnal site, very kind and helpful staff!

This is a really nice place except for two things: a) you hould have more full hookup sites (we've been twice at the Cape Hatteras KOA and even their oceanfront sites have full hookups), and 2) a swimming pool would be greatly appreciated, since swimming in the ocean would be quite a challenge!

Love the area and campground and had a gorgeous site on the end to look out over the water both directions! Can't wait to come back...and plan to ask for the same site!

We really enjoyed our time. The staff was very friendly and helpful!!! Our view was incredible!!!!

We could not get on the wifi sometimes. Your system does not seem to be able to handle a lot of usage when you are full. We also have liked to have a pool at this campground even though we know we could have gone to your other campground. We also find your campground to be much more expensive than other campgrounds in the area.

You are over priced,For what we got.

We had the cabin I requested. It was nice and clean with all the linens as I was told there would be, and extremely well equipped. The staff is friendly, professional and very efficient. Great place , well run! And of course the setting is just beautiful. Thank you! We hope to come back. :)

Beautiful campground right on the shore. Newer bathhouse is worth walking to, older one is OK. Both clean. Don't eat the lobster at the campground, softshell and under cooked. Mine was more like sushi.

Light over bathroom sink did not work. Propane grill was a hazard and was to hard to light due to inside rust. Bathroom mirror is too high for kids and shorter adults. Ladies in the office were awesome nice and made up for all the wrongs. Thank you ladies!!!
