Campground Reviews

Wonderful campground. Lots of amenities and perfect location as base for exploring the entire Penobscot Bay and Acadia Park. Just loved the campground hosts too.

Small, quiet, cozy KOA. Nice flowers hiding the utility hookups was a nice touch. Hosts/owners were very nice and friendly.

Very friendly hosts! Location is beautiful and quiet. We stayed in a cabin which was a bit musty and smaller than a typical Kamping Kabin (this appears to have been recently converted to a KOA). Plumbing needs updating - showers have very low water pressure and inconsistent temperature. No place to wash dishes, so please install that soon!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are glad you liked your stay with us. The outside sink and material is on order like we talked about with you. Also, the pressure in the shower has been resolved. Plugged shower head. This is why we ask that if you have any issues please let us know while you are here so we can address. We hope to see you in the future so you can use the new sink. Happy camping!!!

This is a great place to stay. The owners are super friendly and make you feel welcome the whole time you are there. We changed our reservation to leave two days earlier and we wished we had kept it the same. We hated leaving.

Marlene the owner greeted us as we got out of the truck. A very nice hand shake and greeting. She was so nice, it was like seeing a family member again. Office and camp store very clean and well kept. Had everything we needed, they deliver firewood to your campsite, needed propane, he picked the empty up and delivered it back and hooked it up. Wish we could give them a 15, they were the best

My lovely bride of 37 years and I have traveled the entire east coast from Maine to the keys with no set schedule and contact KOAs when we need down time. This place was able to quickly accommodate us even during peak season and was a top notch, well maintained place. Dave and Marlene are fantastic hosts. We highly recommend everyone to try it out.

All the staff was very friendly and helpful. The restroom, laundry and are cabin were clean. The campground was quiet and it was convenient that there was a grocery store just down the street.

We are not sure why our scores were so low if you enjoyed our park and your stay. What could we have done better to make our scores reflect your satisfaction.

Very nice people clean campground We had a beautiful site
Jul 29, 2019
This is a really nice site - the owners and staff were always available and very helpful to us in getting ourselves set up and recommending things to see and do in the area. There's a really good grocery store very close by and Acadia National Park is less than an hour away. We'd definitely stay here again the next time we're out that way.

We stayed in many KOA's on our trip around the US. Almost all have been very good but Marlene and David's has surpassed all the others. We were greeted by Marlene as we drove up as she did that with everyone. David asked about our plans. I said I wanted my first lobster roll. 30 min's later he brought two slices of Marlene's lobster quiche. Rocking chairs on the porch were a nice touch. Thanks.

Beautiful roomy site. Helpful staff.

Thank you for staying with us on your journey to both coasts with your dog. Safe travels back home!!

The sole disappointment that Beverly and I had was that the water that we received after the hook up smelled badly so we chose not to drink it or to even brush our teeth with it. However, Marlene and David were very friendly and we would definately return should we visit the greater Castine area again.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry you had an issue. Again, you should have let us know as this is from your rig (usually the hot water side)that is very common with rv's. In fact, the state of Maine water inspectors were here that same day as well as getting a great result from our latest water test. Again, when an issue arises you need to let people know for yours as well as our well being. Our tests all came back 100%.
Jul 26, 2019
Stayed for two nights and the hosts Dave and Marlene were a pleasure to deal with. The campground is very well kept and our site with a nice deck and table with chairs is one of the better we have encountered on or trip so far. Would highly recommend this KOA to anyone.
Jul 26, 2019
We already sent our review of how great your campground and staff were. We’re the people that told you when the mans wife is helping him to back up she can freely tell him where to go. We would stay at your campground if we are ever back in the area. You people are awesome!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

THANKS SO MUCH. I HAVE ALREADY TOLD A FEW GUESTS ABOUT YOUR SUGGESTION. HAHAH
Jul 25, 2019
Upon arrival Marlene and David were very gracious. When we had not arrived on the date we were scheduled, due to a mix up on my part Marlene called and quickly resolved the problem. There attention to detail around the whole campground was fantastic and much appreciated. I highly recommended this campground and look forward to returning next year for a full week.

It was ok.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry you didn't enjoy your stay. Wished we would have known what was just ok so we could have tried to make your stay more enjoyable. Happy camping.
Jul 23, 2019
We have stayed at hundreds of parks over the years, Marlene and David are by far the BEST camp Host we have ever met. Can’t wait to come back and stay longer.
Jul 23, 2019
Great group of people that run the operation. They made it a better trip, because they knew the local AREA and could share local attractions, beaches, restaurants and info about ANP.

We are sorry that we didn't provide better service. Please let us know what we could have done to have made your stay more enjoyable.

We were met by the owner and a porch full of seasonal campers when we arrived. It was wonderful e and cheese night and we happily took part and met the regulars. The owners were Marlene and David were amazing and did everything in their power to make our stay a wonderful memory. Coming back. Staying longer. Will be telling all our friends about this place!! Best KOA we have been at yet!
Jul 22, 2019
Begged us to make sure we gave a good rating, shouldn't have to if you have a good camp ground. people living there very noisy, sawing/ leaf blower in the morning, working on golf carts. We were trying to enjoy our vacation.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

First of all we do not beg for ratings, our ratings speak for themselves! What you were asked was to let us know if you had any issues if you had one. And you did not. This is the quietest park during quiet hours. When quiet hours are over people do make some noises and some of those noises are us working on our park.Also, we were completely sold out over your stay with no other complaints
Jul 22, 2019
The best campground in the state and the rest of the country as well so far as we've been. I don't believe that they can be beat.
Jul 22, 2019
Well managed facility.
Jul 22, 2019
We enjoyed our stay. The hosts were wonderful. Campground and facilities were clean. Very quiet. Very nice pool. Everyone was very friendly
