Campground Reviews

This was a wonderful koa. Great things for kids. Kind staff. Quiet. Clean. The laundry was ok needs some updates but that’s ok. Bathrooms were very nice. Close to a lot of things. The kids didn’t want to go home. Ice cream place was great. Would come back!

I was in a tent site unserviced. Very nice with tall pine trees. The amenities were clean and not too far from the site.

The Bangor KOA is right off the highway and easy to get to. Mackenzie, the young lady that works in the front office was very friendly and helpful. She had lots of recommendations on places to eat, and visit! The sites are level and nice sized. It seems like the owners are doing a lot of improvements to the campground. I would like to come next year to see all the upgrades!

Quite a few seasonal campsites. Facilities clean. Laundry appliances could stand an upgrade. Staff friendly enough.

Nice quiet campground. Great shower facilities.

We arrived after the office closed. We were very pleased to find our reservation left for us and we happened to be greeted by one of the staff who let us know to call the number on the form and he would try to help us out if we needed anything. Our site was good #64. We have stayed here before and we absolutely will be back. Thank you!

Hello! We are so excited to see this kind comment of yours. Here at the KOA we make it the utmost importance to make sure that the campers are able to just relax and that checking in is not too stressful or time consuming. We always make it a point to leave our late check ins available to campers

One of our top 10 favorite campgrounds. Clean facilities, friendly staff and nice sites. A real relief after a series of marginal CGs.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We love to hear that! Thank you so much for staying with us. At the Bangor Holden KOA we make it a priority to have clean facilities and clean sites for people to enjoy. Our staff here is great and truly tries their best to make everyone that walks into our campground a happy camper!

Your GM - Rachael was wonderful! We had a trip ending electrical issue with our Rv & she was most concerned with our well being.

We had a wonderful time at the Bangor/Holden KOA! The staff were above and beyond friendly and helpful. I would give the KOA a 10 out of 10 stars! The cabin rental was spotless! The rental had everything that you may need for a get away vacation. The property was well kept and had some hiking trails close by. The camp store was clean and organized. I would highly recommend the Bangor/Holden KOA.

Lance and crew did a really great job. There were some hiccups as there were some major shifts. Lance is doing a great job. I’d say the thing we felt was a little lacking was communication. As seasonal residents, there were a few things that happened that were not well communicated.

The campground is excellent. The staff was friendly and helpful
Oct 17, 2023
Lance and his crew are doing a great job running the place!
Oct 16, 2023
The first couple for months with the first management was not satisfactory a lot of issues for the amount of money spent to stay their we almost left glad we stuck it out. When the new management was in place it was great, looking forward to staying next year.

As it was near the end of the season it was lovely and quiet. Sites do appear close, and it is right on Rt 1. So there is traffic noise. But it is close to Bangor and about an hour from Bar Harbor, so good location. Very clean, great shower!

Directly on the street, water contaminated with Koli bacteria

Great staff and nice campus!

Since june 1, 2023 this KOA has had water contaminated with E. coli and therefore you can not use the water. They did not tell me about this problem until after I arrived in October. They have more than half of their sites for full-time residents. KOA should never allow this business to continue under the KOA business identification. It is truly AWEFUL. Do not go there.

Nice patio site. Fairly convenient to Acadia National Park.
Oct 09, 2023
We only stayed 1 night as we were stopping on our way home to Canada. We were greeted by a young lady with a smile and very friendly. Campgrounds were clean. We had a problem with the electric hook up but they immediately installed a new receptacle. We will stay again, we travel that way often.

I gave it a lower raining, because the water had to be boiled. The Campground was working to rectify the problem. Campground neighbors were very nice.
Oct 05, 2023
The campground was on boil water alert which was supposed to be corrected by September we arrived in October. Other than we did not use the water it was a nice campground
Oct 01, 2023
While my stay didn’t involve using a lot of the campground facilities, I found the campground to be quiet, clean, and well kept. The bathroom facility I used was always sparkling clean. I liked the size of the shower stall and appreciated all the extra hooks & pegs to hang clothes & towels on. The staff I interacted with were helpful, prideful in their work, and pleasant to meet.

Lovely campsite with lots of huge trees and plenty of green grass. Our hosts were super nice and very attentive. This camp is loaded with tons of fun activities. We are already planning our next visit.
Sep 28, 2023
This place is just amazing so clean and the staff is so friendly and accommodating!!

We were not happy to learn about the water hookup being contaminated when we arrived. We should have been notified before our arrival and given the choice to cancel our reservation. Won't be recommending your campground to any other folks.
Sep 26, 2023
The best activity calendar of the many KOAs we have stayed at. Very friendly staff and permanent site holders. Will stay there again!
Sep 26, 2023
Very clean, friendly, owners went out of their way to make sure we were happy with everything. Will be back for sure!
Sep 25, 2023
I had a good stay with you. However there are two things I’d have like to see happen. If you were aware that your water system was compromised before my arrival I feel you should reached out to me to let me. This would have a allowed me time to fill my fresh water tank before coming in. I also feel you should not have charged me full hook rate when the water was not safe to use.
Sep 25, 2023
EVERYONE was so lovely and welcoming! From the staff to the campers to the children. We will not camp anywhere else in the area! They were terrific and so many fun things to do for kids and adults! 11/10 would definitely recommend.
Sep 25, 2023
It is a nice park. It REALLY would have been better if they would have told us there was a boil water order in place. It is a great base for touring Acadia and the surrounding forests.
Sep 25, 2023
We checked-in on the day of arrival at KOA around 6:45 PM & Sara (Gen'l Manager) was most helpful in finding our tent site. The only downside of our stay at the Bangor/Holden KOA was the "boil water" restriction. It would have been an inconvenience if we had a big RV & had to boil water for washing & brushing teeth. When camping, the boil water is difficult. We will learn from the experience.

The staff here are wonderful. We had a great time even with Hurricane Lee. It was a wet and windy few days. There were many activities to keep everyone occupied.
Sep 24, 2023
We enjoyed using the outdoor games: cornhole, ping pong and foosball. We also enjoyed the pulled pork dinner and the adult craft: reverse tie-dye!
Sep 23, 2023
The drive through parking area I was at is difficult to park on the gravel with all four landing jacks without driving on the grass. The koa was very clean & accommodating otherwise. the staff were pleasant and helpful to deal with
Sep 21, 2023
on a choisi pour la piscine et le jump pad mais aucun des deux n'était dispo. C'est inacceptable, ca devrait etre averti quand les installations sont fermées. Trop cher , c'est la derniere fois que l'on sejourne à ce koa. Le site de camping pas tres propre, la table pourrait etre nettoyée de temps à autre .

Great campground. Quiet and clean. Had both kid and adult activities the weekend we were here. Has Pizza place and Ice cream cones available during the weekend. Has all the amenities (in good condition) one expects from a KOA. Owners and staff are very kind.
Sep 21, 2023
Friendly staff! We were evacuated from a campground at Acadia National Park due to Hurricane Lee. We not only got a site but got a second one next door for the couple we were traveling with. Campground has a great area with cornhole, ping pong, chess, darts. Nice rec room. They hosted a hurricane BBQ dinner!!
Sep 21, 2023
They did a great job squeezing us in and accommodating us to be away from the road. Very reasonable people. Would definitely go there again.

Wonderful staff, facilities make for a comfortable stay.

In our top ten campgrounds in US. nice shaded sites, smart and accommodating staff and clean bathrooms—a must for us. For a campground, it is reasonably close to urban amenities. And there is a lobster house about a mile away. There is an ice cream shop but it was never open during pur stays. Probably a hit with kids.

Great KOA with all the normal amenities you would expect. The staff is super helpful, very friendly, and have great positive uplifting attitudes. When we first arrived, it rained pretty hard. We asked a neighbor if it had been raining a lot, and he said he had been here for 3 weeks and it hadn't stopped yet. We stayed for 2 weeks, and ended up with like 4 sunny days without rain. This meant that the entire campsite was pretty thoroughly flooded, and our entire yard had standing water with a nice big mud patch right at our front steps. It was so wet that the staff couldn't even mow until our second to last day, so the grass was getting pretty long and soggy. Despite all of the negative weather, the staff maintained their positive attitude, and did not cancel any of their fun events and activities. Even though the pool and bounce pad were out of commission, they more than made up for it with indoor crafts, events, and fun hangouts at the club house. The entrance is EXTREMELY tight. If you are towing a vehicle, I highly recommend you disconnect before pulling in. We did not, and we did not make it through the entrance either. Staff was once again super helpful in getting us unstuck, and gave us the time and space to maneuver safely, instead of rushing us out of the road like we have experienced at other camps, including some highly rated KOA's. The park store here is probably the biggest and most well stocked store we have seen in over a year, and the pizza, sandwiches, and ice cream are tasty and worth sampling. Jones Lobster Company right down the road really does have the BEST lobster rolls, and the best tasting lobster we had during our entire stay in Maine. We camped at Bangor / Holden KOA in a Motorhome. Detracting 1 star due to the water becoming non-potable during our stay due to their septic overflowing into their well contaminating it with e coli.

Stayed here for the Summer 23 Season. Lance and his crew really worked hard all season upgrading the place and if you ever needed anything they were great. Disregard the negative old reviews from prior ownership. Would of signed up for next season but work isn't gonna have me up there.
