This KOA has all the usual amenities and they are kept clean and tidy. The sites are a little tight but are clean and mostly grass base. Waterfront sites are leveled gravel bases and are mostly back in but some are pull in. They have a great seating area at the water where you can watch the kids play or...

My family of 5 (7, 3 and 15 months) had a great time in our recent visit of 4 nights. Such a beautiful place to walk around and play on the ocean front rocks. The daily train ride around the camp site was a hit with the kids and the staff was so nice to everyone. The area of bar...

I booked our site online 7 months in advance for an OCEANFRONT site with water and electric (none of the ocean front sites are full hook up), what we got stuck with was a cheaper site, 8 rows from the ocean. This was a full hook up which was nice with a family, however it was not what I had...

We thought we were getting an ocean front site but when we arrived we were told that those folks book a year I advance. I wish they had told me ahead of time. We did pay for the ocean side but because of our positioning and the fact that there was a camper right next to us, we didn't have...

Booked 9 days at the ocean sites full hook up. Could not see any water from our site. So much for the extra cost for a ocean site. What I did get was 5 dogs kept in a fenced in pen at the camp site behind me. Every morning at 6am they were let out and began barking. I told...

Beautiful sunsets, spacious cabins and plenty of things to do at the campground or nearby/within driving distance. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay here again or recommend this campground to others.

I reserved an Airstream camper at this Oceanside campground, with a water view. Yeah right. I called for my site number, and they told me 904. I thought ok, great. Not ON the water, but really close. I call again when we are about to leave to confirm. Yes, all set they tell me. We arrive and they bring us...

What a gem! We stayed in a deluxe cabin and it was better than most hotels. It was super clean, spacious, and had comfortable beds. We will definitely make this an annual trip. The campground has spectacular water views, beaches, great weekend breakfast (you have to try the blueberry pancakes), and fun activities for kids. The staff was so friendly...

What a lovely campground! Just outside of Acadia National Park lies this KOA that not only offers great views, but offers friendly service as well. From the moment we walked in we were welcomed as special guests into the campground, offered advice on how to see Acadia, guided to our campsite with the wood offered at check in. We go...

My wife and I stayed in the Studio cabin with a ocean view. Nice touches like a real bed and a Kuerig made the stay even better. The staff was very friendly and the location is pretty close to Acadia and other small towns with easy routes. I noticed the review for the bathhouse being dirty but I did not...
