In reading some reviews of this campground I just don't get it. Either some of these folks are part of a vendetta against this campground or they are just plain unreasonable. Powers out and wants compensation....really??? I don't even think it was out 2 hours. We've been camping here for the last three years and just wrapped up another great... More

We won't be coming back. Too crowded, noisy, and staff doesn't really respond to concerns or requests. Advertised internet, which either nonexistent or horrendously slow when I could finally connect. Lost power on our second day for most of the afternoon. No explanations, no refunds to compensate. Being on the River could have been a lovely experience, over crowding and... More

Hello There, I read your review and while it was great to see that you enjoyed the activities onsite, the cleanliness of the property and the river I also noticed you had some concerns which I wanted to respond to: 1. The internet is a free service and is limited to the amount of bandwidth available to our property. You're... More

We have been dedicated campers for many years at Saco River Camping Area......this year was no exception, with understanding the 3 new owners were putting their spin on running the campground. Sure, there are some changes we aren't quite happy with....such as a $150 deposit for camping the same week of 2015. After vacationing for a week, not everyone can... More

Hi There, Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback on Trip Advisor. I also wanted to respond to your comments. The decision on the deposit amount was made based on other high demand campgrounds and what they charge. Just in our area there are campgrounds charging more for their advanced deposits and in some cases they make it... More

We have been camping here for 16 years and are upset to see some changes. Tonight and a couple of nights this week we have seen several kids waiting for the haydride which has always gone on every night. Tonight several kids were turned away & told they did not have enough staff. Yet I've seen much more staff then... More

Hello There, I see your stay did not meet your expectations and for that were sorry. We would like to speak to some of your concerns and comments. You're correct, we have significantly more staff than in the past and now clean the bathrooms 7-8 times per day compared to less than half that before. Unfortunately, there are still times... More

Nice family campground. Dog friendly. Bathrooms were clean and facilities were nicely kept. Not very woodsy campsites unless you're in the waterfront sites, so if you're looking for a real woodsy camping experience you might consider Jigger Johnson, but for a family campground close to all North Conway has to offer this is a great campground and location.

Hello There, Thanks for providing your review of our campground and we're glad you enjoyed it. You might be happy to know we have several very woodsy sites which might interest you. D1 and D2 are both very woodsy. We also have several other woodsy sites which might interest you. Many guests don't even know they exist as several are... More

After talking to him I feel maybe I jumped to fast and did not give the new owner a chance . I should have spoke to him before I posted my review.. It... More

Saco River Campground is terrific. It was our second time to this campground and what a difference. The place has had a big face lift...the store is gorgeous and there seems to be much more staff. The Wi-Fi is vastly better and our kayak trip went off without a hitch. Booked it online and showed up to check in. Easy.... More

We have been coming here for 4 years. Always enjoyed ourselves. This year there is new owners. I'm finding the bathrooms are not being kept clean. We have always gone kayaking. The old owners use to pick you up at your site, they no longer do that. So now you have to lug your cooler to the office to kayak.... More

Hi There Karen, Thank you for taking the time to provide your experiences while at the campground. We're very disappointed in your experience with our restrooms as we have doubled our maintenance staff and more than doubled the frequency with which the bathrooms are cleaned from previous years. Management and owners alike spot check bathrooms daily and really pride ourselves... More

This place is not set up for tent camping at all. The staff are very polite and the place was super clean and hardly a bug anywhere. The water was always hot for showers. But there is 0 privacy. And nowhere to wash dishes except the bathroom sink. They would not switch our dates for us to give us a... More

Hello There Itchyfeeties, We saw your review of our property and see that your tenting experience did not meet your expectations. Naturally, were disappointed to hear this. We offer a mixture of camping sites from open ones like you experienced to heavily tree'd and secluded sites. These secluded sites are very popular and provide the isolation and privacy you were...
