Over Priced. The Rest Rooms are closed for cleaning from 8am till 11am daily??? Big lines wating every am for the people to finish.

Easy to get to, access to island shuttle, friendly staff. But - our camp site was not clean-looked like someone spilled their black tank on our site, picnic table dirty from the previous guest and site was littered with seafood. Only an ocean view if no one parked in front of you. Flower beds weedy and grounds could use more attention, i.e. trim around power posts, etc. Lobster dinner yum!

It was an amazing weekend! We got to see two awesome sunsets over the bay. The last night there (7/20/14) there was a extremely ignoring barking dog that wouldn't stop, but being on the bay on the water with a campfire going made it so much better. We did here other sites complain too. The staff was very friendly, the campground was very well maintained. We will be back.

Expensive, but the view was worth it. However the internet was totally unacceptable. In order to use it you had to get up at 5 a.m. Otherwise a nice campground.

The location is great. Our site was close to the wTer. Sunsets are great. Roads are not so nice and the sites are minimal.

We were supposed to have a level site with full hook ups and wifi. I had made the reservation 6 months ago. We were given a site on a hill and the the sewer hose was 20ft away from the site. We had to buy additional hose to reach, and the wifi worked sporadically. One day during our stay we arrived to find a big pile of crushed stone in the middle of our campsite it was not raked just a stone hill

The staff was real friendly! We felt very welcome!

Nothing was as stated in the advertising. Very limited amenities, very few full hook-ups, very few sites with cable. Office not very close. Showers very small.

Love that this park is natural waterfront and not cemented

Beautiful campground allowing us to enjoy the full beauty of Maine. Clean, safe, and family friendly.

We were very pleased to find that we truly were right by the ocean, unlike some spots that tell you you will be able to enjoy the ocean view from your site, only to find that you need to walk a mile to view the picture advertised, we were very pleased.

Our usual site#362 was taken--entire waterfront CLOGGED with TOO-BIG rigs, BLOCKING everyones' ocean view!! We were VERY happy with #308, in woods, private, only a tent & pop-up either side. BUT not level--needed a cinder block under tires to be level. Still, the best site ever, and always feel safe with constant golf cart patrols. Thxxx so much to staff & Island Explorer.

Look forward to coming to this campground every year. Everyone is so nice and accommodating. Can't wait for next year.

Location of this KOA was great. Our full hookup site was expensive and cramped for our large 5th wheel. Bathrooms and staff were fine.
Jul 20, 2014
Great location. Close to all attractions. Campfire ring was to close to other camper. Not a lot of room to park tow vehicle.

The scenery around the campground is breathtaking. I know the website says the sunsets are great but I was in such awe of our first sunset and every one after that. The trolley system on the island is great for getting around. We will definitely recommend the site to everyone.

Overall the campground staff was very pleasant and helpful. The one main issue I had was a lot of the sites are very close together with no real privacy amongst them. You really couldn't have your awning down and have a fire at the same time due to the size of the sites. It was a pleasant stay, but I don't believe we would return to this specific KOA as we tend to like a more wooded surrounding.

better wifi please

need to level some sites
Jul 19, 2014
au bord de mer est très beau mais pas entretenu et les terrains très petit et surtout tout croche,pas droit du tout. Toilette laisse à désirer et tous les bâtiments sont à rafraîchir. Ça vaut 30$ par soir et non 76$. Même si nous avons pris la carte membre 71$ pas du tout satisfait , on s'attendrait a beaucoup mieux On était 3 sites d'amis et ça pris 1 h mettre niveau nos vr. Trop chiens parto

Our family stayed here about 13 years ago and loved it. We enjoyed the beautiful atmosphere, clean campground, and friendly staff. We returned recently last month without the children and were not disappointed. It was as wonderful as we remembered it!

We used this as a stay-over on our way back home from the Quebec City KOA and were delighted with the ocean side site to enjoy our evening Lobster dinner. (call ahead to see if "The Boyz" are boiling Lobsta right there at the campground and you will save on making a trip to one of many other Lobster Pound locations. A nice way to end the day after a long drive!)

EVERY worker is SO nice. I can't express enough how wonderful it was to stay there. Due to a medical emergency we were there longer than planned. Everyone there showed genuiune concern. Loved the drive by pie & the Lobster man right at the campground where you can order dinner, by the water, it was great. Great location & FREE shuttle right @ the campground to all the places you want to go.

Beautiful setting right on the water. We enjoyed the sunsets.

Wonderful experience. The ladies in the camp store were extremely friendly and welcoming. Having rented an RV and not really knowing what I was doing they were extremely helpful. I will definitely come back in the future.

Freindly Staff, Great area, Very Small sites.
Jul 14, 2014
Le seul commentaire serait qu'il est vraiment dommage de ne pas pouvoir choisir unsite en particulier lors d'une reservation
Jul 14, 2014
staff was very friendly and accommodating. Rented a campsite plus an airstream for my son to stay in. Campsite was fine. Airstream was in need of repairs. Bed was hard. Told not to open Windows. Not a big deal until A/C stopped working. Would not stay at this KOA again.
