Another perfect stay. You can tell the owners love what they do. Very attentive to campers needs. Clean grounds, well stocked store with fair prices. Just perfect all the way around. Highly recommend

We had our family reunion over Labor Day Weekend renting all 5 cabins, lodge& cottage and having 3 meals catered. Everything was excellent including the weather. The well water stopped completely on Sun night but Jeff worked all night & we had water Mon am which we really appreciated. Bob & Joan Thorp

Absolutely beautiful grounds. The cabin was so clean and the bed was comfortable. The bathrooms were also very clean. It was quiet at night, which made for fitful sleep. The owners, Jeff & Melanie, were awesome!!!

It would be nice to have a path from the cabins to the restrooms for walking so you are not walking in the wet grass in the middle of the night. Also if you really want to recycle put more recycle cans out. Every trash can should have recycle bins beside them. I am lazy and am not going to go to only one place to recycle.

Staff, location & amenities all outstanding. Disappointed w/would not recommend Deluxe Cabin we rented. Lack of cabinets or under bunk storage = living in boxes & lack of floor space. Doors swell & don't open/close correctly. Lots of spiders & webs. Top bunks not well supported (plywood w/no cross-beams). Chose for bathroom/tub for kids. Lack of hot water meant 1 fast bath & long wait to replenish

What a great KOA! We were welcomed like we were family. We stayed in a large cabin and it was very clean and comfortable. They even delivered wood and ice to our site. :) Also, the bathrooms and showers were clean and well stocked. We'll definitely be back to this KOA.

Friendly staff. I was even provided a mini fridge at no charge. A mini fridge is such a great thing to have. That was a very big deal for us. Loved staying at kk1 cabin which is beside playground. We anticipate contacting campground soon so we can book next years visit for the 4th of July. Loved our stay!

Great people. Fun for the kids

This is our second stay at this campground. We took our new dog Penny on this trip and the campground had a safe and clean fenced in play area for Penny. There was also plenty of room, including awesome trails, to enjoy a family walk and exercise Penny. The kids loved the pool and the arcade game room. The general store had everything we needed from food to toys for the kids.

Melanie and the entire staff were fabulous. We loved all the activities. We'll be back.

Great place. The only disappointment was there was no lake or pond on the grounds
Jun 27, 2016
We had an awesome time for our first time at this KOA. Jeff and Melanie Peterson and staff were very welcoming. This is one of the cleanest campgrounds we have ever been to. I would highly recommend this campground to anyone. Beautiful pool, the camp store is stocked with everything you could ever ask for. Everytime we got firewood, it was delivered to our site for us. Cabin was awesome too!!

Very relaxing

Great place! Friendly, helpful owners. Quiet and clean facilities. Stayed one night while travelling to Canada - actually came back early and stayed here a 2nd night! Will be booking another stay later in July.

Stayed in cabin for one night but wish it could've been longer! Beautiful grounds, very nice and accommodating management and clean facilities.


Thank you for you survey and we are so glad you enjoyed your stay. Hope to see you again soon.

My wife says the cabin was adorable and just right for the two of us but would be fine for a small family. The campground was quiet and clean. Centrally located. Our hosts were very pleasant and helpful, especially with Jeff's suggestion to go to The Forks and Moxie Falls. The wild turkeys walking in the field in front of our cabin Wednesday morning was nice.

The place was nice clean, it had lots of ants inside needed to be sprayed for ants but otherwise very nice
May 20, 2016
We had a beautiful little cabin, nicely constructed with many plugs suitable tv fridge & micro. Picnic tables outside with camp grill & campfire pit. The bathroom fan was so loud it woke you up. Otherwise, we enjoyed our visit.


I am sorry to hear there is a problem with the bathroom fan. We will look into that asap. thank you for letting us know.

Life is good at the Koa!!! My kids love it every time they come :)

We had a wonderful time! Melanie and Jeff were very accommodating, from our need for a late check in, the great events they hosted and answering all our questions!

My firsty trip to Maine and I'm glad I chose to stay at Skowhegan/Kennebec KOA. Very clean and well maintained, and the Petersons were extremely helpful, friendly and accomodating. They helped me with directions and info about sights and attractions around the state, even put up some of my trip photos. Will definitely be back soon! -Chrys Cruz

When we arrived I thought the cabin was not secluded enough, but it turned out to be perfect and so clean. I had thought there would be a bathtub to take a bath and relax, and when I mentioned it to the owners, they apologized and asked what they could do to make it right, they gave us firewood and it was great to have a fire every evening. This is a great place and can't wait to return.


Thank you for the review. We are very happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay!

Very clean campground and the cabins were immaculate. Jeff and Melanie are working hard to improve all the areas and bend over backwards to make sure campers are happy with their stay. I wish them the best of luck as they go forward.
Sep 14, 2015
Very happy with our stay. We enjoy staying in the kabins and love that our dog can come with us. Our only complaint was the mattresses were a little uncomfortable.


Thank you for your feedback. We apologize for the mattresses. We currently have a plan in place to replace them all. Other than that we are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay!

Thank you so much for a great weekend! Kabin was really nice and convenient. 2 light bulbs were burned out inside and the outside light kept flickering and didn't always come right on, but it wasn't a huge issue. Just a suggestion would be that you announce all of the fun things going on when it's time or almost time. I know you handed out schedules, but it use to be a lot easier. Lots of fun!!!


Thank you for your feedback. We hope to see again but whether you stay with us or at another campground, please do not hesitate to bring any problems you encounter (such as lights burnt out) to the owners attention. We are here to make your stay most enjoyable even if its just the small things!

We like this campground because of the location. There's a lot to explore around the Skowhegan area. The new staff are friendly and helpful and we like how it is pet and family friendly. But, we do have a few suggestions: Have earlier camp store hours Sell water by the gallon Do something about the pool - it's a little moldy smelling =/ Thanks!


As new owners we are challenged everyday to continually improve the camp for our guests. We can only do that with your feedback, so Thank you! We will update store items based on feedback, hope to have better hours and look forward to making some changes to the pool for next season!

The owners were pleasant, especially after our 6 yr old son got burned on a fire ring. The grounds were clean, but need a few upgrades but that's due to the recent change in ownership. It was very quiet, comfortable & clean. We will most likely stay there again.
