Campground Reviews

The owners of the Bangor/Holden KOA go more than the "extra mile". They go however far it takes to make sure their guests have an enjoyable stay. They work hard and are a pleasure to do business with. The showers nice and the grounds are kept spotlessly clean. Bangor/Holden KOA easily earned their way into our list of places we would return to.

Spacious, pull thru site for our 45' toy hauler...there was actually 3 toy haulers this size and we all had great sites next to each other. Friendly, family atmosphere, great store and the owner and staff were very kind & helpful. Easy 45 minute ride to Bar Harbor.

We were very impressed with the Bangor KOA staff. We arrived during a rain storm which caused it to be somewhat dark in the camper. Being only 5'3" I was unable to find the light selwitches on the ceiling lanps. When I called the office to ask where to find the switches, the lady I talked to did not know where they were, but personally came to the camper to help me to search for them.

The manager was awesome - friendly, professional. The campsite was perfect, the restrooms and laundry rooms were clean and well kept. I couldn’t ask for a better camping experience.

Very friendly Owner. Helpful too. Nice clean campground that was in a great location for us. Only 25 minutes to get to the lake. Will definitely stay here in the future.

Nice campsite and plenty of activity for the kids. Close to the town of Bangor. Perfect location to site see Maine. Employees was friendly and helpful. Great general store and pizza was convenient and great. Bathroom were clean regularly. Hot showers. I can't find a complaint about the place.

This park is not up to the standard that we have experienced under the KOA name elsewhere. Run down, crowded and cluttered. Spaces pictured on the booking page in no way accurately describes what you arrive to. Our RV was very close to touching the neighbors RV when our slides were out. Owner is portrayed as domineering and the police were there when we arrived. KOA, this shouldn’t bear your nam

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The reason the police were here is that we have 4 police officers as seasonals. Some take their cars home with them. We like them here! As for cluttered, as we are running at 95% capacity, the park is busy not cluttered. Unlike other parks we allow our campers to have more than 1 car, like you had.

We loved all that this KOA had to offer, especially the pool, the ice cream shop, the cafe (lobster rolls), the clean bathrooms, and most of all the amazing owner/hosts. Chris and his wife went out of their way to make sure everyone had a fun time while there. Saturdays were full of activities for folks of all ages. This KOA store has the best inventory of any RV place we have stayed.

I loved the people at this KOA, the campers and the staff were very nice, and enjoyable. The pool could use some updating and the sites are a little close, but we still had a very nice stay and did not want to leave.

The fire ring should be the standard metal ring instead of having a collection of broken bricks and blocks stacked in a circle. It would look neater and be easier to maintain. The staff was friendly and helpful.

The campgrounds was clean and neat and the rest rooms were spotless. They were cleaned at least 3 to 4 times a day.The staff was friendly and helpful.

Our only request was to be with our family who were also camping, and we were put on the other side of the campground in a wet lot where the camper couldn’t be leveled. Asked to be moved to the empty lot beside our family (same type of lot we reserved) and were denied.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I am sorry that we were not able to accommodate you request to be next to your family. As everyone knows this is an extremely busy season and there were no sites left next to your family. When it rains over two inches over the weekend there is not much we can do. Also that site is level.

Staff were very friendly and gave us one of the last two spots they had left. Problem was with electric pole. Turned on microwave and blew power. They sent two young men with volt meter. Read 104 and I was told that was within tolerance. I was able to use my long 30 amp extension cord to plug into next campsite. Power was a little better. My neighbor next door had elect problems also.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

You had tenters on one side of you so I am not sure how they would have electric problems! When you took off your surge protector and plugged into the site next to you had no problems. We suggested you could plug into your site with the same results. The surge protector was the problem.

Even though the staff was wonderful and the campground very well-kept, I do not think that we would camp here again. 80% of the people there are either full timers or seasonal, and it was uncomfortable for me. Very few actual campsites. I just felt like I was intruding, rather than having a fun family camp time. Also, the sites were very small and cramped.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Out of 120 sites 45 are seasonal sites. The site you were on accommodates a 36' trailer, and the site is 50 long, and yours is 30'.There is also 12' wide of grass until the next campsite. You are from Ohio and most likely will not be camping her again. Are you sure you have the right campground?

Love this campground. Cabin was perfect and easy to maintain a comfortable temp. Lots of stuff to do at campground as well as in local area
Jul 15, 2021
Overpriced and hard to get in and out with camper.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Amazing, you booked on line and you knew what the price was. The site you had was a 75 foot pull thru site, which is angled to make it easier to pull into. Not sure you have the right campground.

Helpful frontdesk. Our geo dome was already setup with linens (paid) and directions were very clear. Bathrooms were basic but clean, and they were very close. The only issue we had was the noise from the nearby highway which had traffic througout the night. Otherwise, good place to stay.

When we arrived we were greeted at check in by very friendly staff. The campground had a lot of seasonal campers but everyone was very friendly and respected the quiet time which we always appreciate. We had a spot on a corner and it was tight to park the truck but managed ok. A big plus was the "Holden a Cone" ice cream stand out front that we took advantage of several evenings.

I was very disappointed with this campground. I was promised and paid for a deluxe premium site what I got was a site that was so small I can barely walk between my slide and the camper beside me. The deck was all rotten my sons chair went through a rotted area when he was holding my Granddaughter. Both steps to the deck were a safety hazard. The owner was a real hothead wish I could write more.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Let's be honest you were here 8 days and we let you run a tab for visitors. 6 people max per site and you always had 10 + When it was time to pay it you wanted us to waive it since you had a wood deck and not a stone or concrete deck. We said no, and you got upset. No one ever fell through the deck.

Staff was very friendly. Had pizza delivered which was yummy �. We got there a little early and our cabin just happened to be ready..very clean.

Great people and nice place! Good pizza!

They go above and beyond great people

KOA had a problem with the ground in lot 96 which we stayed on. Our AC did not work and had to call a serviceman who spent over two hours trying to find the problem. Finally asked if we had a generator and we did. Started it up and AC worked fine. By the way, we moved to another KOA in Lebanon, Maine. Our AC works fine.

We had a great time during our stay. We stayed for 5 days in a cabin. The cabin was clean and the campground was quiet. We enjoyed the weekend activities that the campground offered too. The food at the store/kitchen was really good. The owners were super nice and we enjoyed talking to them. Easy check in and easy check out.

Another night at this Koa still great sites and the food at Red Barn is suburb.

One thing, I just felt super sorry for the one lady dying of heat making Pizza and delivering. She needed help and some cool air. I wasn’t in there but a few min. And I was sweating!!!

Highly recommend this KOA. Grounds well kept, bathhouses clean. Activities for the kids especially on the weekends. The owner and his staff are great people and very helpful.

It was good, except for all the rain and cold weather, the 4th of July shouldn't be like. But the campground was fun, would stay there again.
Jul 07, 2021
It's an older park but managers do a great job of accomodating everyone and meet the needs of campers. Well cared for amenities and and friendly people. The icecream shop on site is a hit!!

Unfortunately our 17year old wonderful tent just did not hold up with all the RAIN ( not anyone’s fault for sure ) we did water proof it twice but sadly it was done :( our time in Maine Koa was great ! Friendly , Busy but clean and quiet !! Thank you very much
Jul 07, 2021
One of the best Koa we have stayed in super friendly owners and the food was wonderful, are returning to this place on our way home

Lack of professionalism, office error in dates of stay when reservation made (Staff booked two date ranges rather than same dates for both sites), inadequate and unsafe electrical work - found electric box completely charred inside after electrician attempt to make us feel ignorant, sites very small with “overly helpful” staff trying to dictate where to place our camper within the site.

A trucking company is very close to the tent spots where we camped so instead of enjoying the peaceful sounds of nature, we had trucking noise to enjoy. Even on Saturday!!! We left one day early because of terrible weather(cold and rain). The best they could do was offer a rain check. Not very useful as we live too far away and will probably never be back. Tent pad was not flat and had no grass.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sadly, we cannot control who our neighbors are, though they are thankfully closed on the weekends. We also cannot control the weather, and although our No Refunds policy is clearly stated, we did offer you a raincheck. We also bend the rules by letting you book 2 days instead of 3.The site is level!

My husband and I spent last summer here. It was a great stay. The owners are generous and extremely helpful. The grandkids enjoyed weekend activities and everyone was super friendly toward us. Getting pizza delivered from the cafe right to our site was a nice added perk as was the delicious ice cream shop on the premises. And the location provided an easy drive to coastal towns and Acadia National Park. Whether you're looking for a seasonal or vacation spot, this campground is a great option.
