This is not your typical KOA, but it was very nice! We stayed here for 4 nights during the summer while traveling the east coast and were impressed with its location. The sites are just grassy spots but good sized. It is well maintained but very rustic. The staff were very friendly and they have arts and crafts for the... More

Wonderful place to stay. The cabins are warm and comfy with everything you need (except a pan for the BBQ). The cabins are generally nestled in the woods and we had a 6 person one. The interior is woody with lots of windows to take in the view. There was a deck, screened porch and fire pit. There were only... More

We have stayed at KOA properties along the east coast from Florida to Maine. This one is no exception as to what we have come to expect from the KOA properties as far as facilities. We had a couple of interactions with the staff by phone prior to arrival and found them most helpful. Check-in was fast and friendly. We... More

This was our first experience with KOA and overall we were happy. We were at KOA Woodlands in cabin K12. At first we weren't thrilled because it is RIGHT next to the bathroom and the space initially appeared tight, but once we maneuvered the car we had a lot more room. The cabin had a queen bed, twin bunkbeds and... More

This KOA has 2 camping areas. One is a big open field with the coast on one side, the other is in a wooded section. We were put in the wooded section among the cabins. Our site was small, uneven, and not maintained very well. The ladies in the office were very nice but our escort to the camp site... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here on one of their tent sites for two nights while visiting Acadia National Park as part of a ten-day road trip. We have stayed at many campgrounds and this was, by far, the most cramped tent sites we've ever seen. There was no privacy at all. For some campsites, in order to get your... More

You need to take about 30min to go to Acadia national park loop. I will not choose this place if my main interest is in Acadia National Park. The site is good and all the equipment are fine. Everything looks good but it should not be marked as Acadia National Park Campground. I would like to take 30min to do... More

All the little things that have become the hallmark of our stays with KOA across the country - were missing. There was no personal interaction unless we sought it out with the staff. We only saw them we they were escorting new arrivals. The Cabin we rented had no kitchen to speak of (A microwave) but still we expected to... More

Had the great fortune to stay at this gorgeous campground in an ocean view site #376. While the site was tight to get into initially it was well worth it, as we had out own secluded site with a pathway to the bay. The sunset views were absolutely amazing! No sewer hookups are available along the waterline. Words can not... More

we got there and upgraded from a tent area to a deluxe cabin, worth it. we had our own cabins with a screened in porch, small living room, kitchen, microwave, frig, bunk beds for 2, nice "master" bedroom and your own bathroom and electricity. Well worth the money for not sleeping out in the elements if you are not a... More
